Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fabulous location - looking down over Sunshine Cove.
This house just works for us, obviously, as this is our third visit. We stayed again for a week, to give us a good break. It's well worth the drive from Melbourne. We don't need to rave - everyone else has said it all, but what works especially well for us is: 1. the peace, and the fresh air of the coast. We hear nothing but the sea, and the birds. 2. the location - it is lovely to drop down to the beach, for a swim, snorkel, or walk over the headland to Casey's Beach. 3. the view - looking at the ocean and coastline through the trees. Wonderful to wake up to. 4. the proximity to lovely things to do. We discover new walks and picnic spots every time we visit. This time it was the walks from beaches such as Denhams Beach, Dalmeny Beach and Depot Beach. Using theCOVEs kayaks is always a treat, and this time we hired some at Nelligen, a first for us. 5. the supplies are an added treat. We like to cook, and find the spices, sauces, and so many extras just add to the pleasure. 6. the generosity and communication with Paul, the owner. He is so keen to share and to make it work. Overall, we had a truly relaxing and successful holiday and I can thoroughly recommend it.

Margaret and her family's experience is the reason why I enjoy sharing my home. There is something quite special about living close to the ocean and its rhythms. When a family returns, it is a real compliment. Thank you, Margaret.

Fabulous!
This place is just gorgeous. The views from the shower and bedroom, the huge DVD collection, comfy bed, toiletries provided, open generously stocked pantry, fridge and freezer etc. etc. (the list goes on) were all just fabulous. We didn't ask, but Paul offered early check in and late check out as circumstances allowed. Excellent communication. Cant speak highly enough of this place and the host. Big thumbs up!

Perfection
What a fabulous experience - from the first contact from the owner Paul to the final minutes of our stay, we could not have asked for anything more. The home is elegant, welcoming and allows you to relax completely (the spa bath was an absolute treat every night after an active day with tired muscles). The artwork is beautiful and is just one of the obvious expressions of Paul's lovely sense of aesthetics which creates a feeling of belonging in the beautiful environment. The home is also incredibly practical, with a very generously stocked pantry, easy to use kitchen, steps down to the beach with atmospheric lighting. We can't wait to be able to wake up in that peaceful bedroom and enjoy the view and sound of the ocean again!

Believe everything you read, Paul's other home is to put simply...Delightful.
A wonderful home and awesome space.To use the economy of words theory, as to truly review this amazing place would require a thesaurus and too many adjectives. So... The views are better than the pics..The home is faultless.. The beach a treasure...The living space just 'right'. Bed and shower are tip top. Two examples of Paul's hospitality and thoroughness that Fiona and I experienced were as follows.. Fiona decided to make "from the ground up' veggie soup on our 1st night. Hour prep done. Hmmm how does cook top work? We don't have induction cooking, we called Paul, 5 min later all is good.. Now Fiona wants induction cook top !...The wireless modem did actually drop out one night. No problem. I walked upstairs and reset, 10 min later I came down. took 30 sec to reset 9 and a half mins standing on the bedroom deck listening to the waves. Due to Paul's thoroughness it felt like our home and it was as simple as that. Have no hesitation in booking Paul's "other home." We stayed 4 nights and could have stayed 8, or more.

Thank you so much, Michael and Fiona. Your review means a lot, as many of us who are fortunate enough to live oceanfront, or even better, beachfront.....feel that custodianship and sharing of the site is more meaningful than ownership. I'm so, so happy you enjoyed your stay.... and thanks for the frozen home made soup and the photos (Love the Mogo lion!!) Enjoy the rest of your journey.

A fantastic property and location
Having stayed in five AirBnBs on our three week tour of Southern Australia and Tasmania, this property exceeded our expectations in every way - and was the best of all. The beach-side location, being a good 10 seconds walk to the beach, and its position is outstanding. The property is beautifully furnished and very well equipped, and has been designed to take advantage of its stunning views over the ocean and beach. If you're looking for somewhere special, then look no further!

Perfect in every way
This property is without doubt the best we've stayed in. The reviews and photos were absolutely true. Don't be put off by it being 'duplex' as it is very private. Views were fabulous, about 20 steps onto beach. There were kayaks available, a very well stocked pantry.....less than 5 mins to Catalina country club for golf if you can manage to leave the property. There was a lovely nurturing and healing energy at this property. Look no further.......this place is spectacular, we will definitely be making excuses to return and had told all our friends about it too.

Better than any 5 Star Hotel!!!!
Lets face it, when we book a holiday on Trip Advisor, or any other third party website we are never sure what we are going to arrive to, well what you see here is actually what you get ...... and even more........ What an absolutely amazing place this is. From the ease of booking to the arrival was so professional and efficient. Everything about the COVE is just absolutely jaw dropping. As the photos show, no expense had been spared in ensuring the guests who arrive here feel like they are in a 5 star resort. We certainly did. As you will see from my reviews, I'm a seasoned traveler, with great expectations for what I pay for, this is without a doubt the highlight of my travels to date. There is so much to rave about I'm not sure where to start. The amenities are 5 star, the views, as the photos show is just so amazing, we even saw dolphins in the cove on our visit. You can see the ocean while you are cooking, and the view from the bedroom and bathroom are amazing. Where in the world can you shower and see the ocean! The owners have thought of absolutely everything, even if you haven't! From night lights to torches, great luxurious amenities, an "open" pantry, free use of canoes and equipment, more than one little chocolates at your bedside, even pool/beach towels, and your own private access to the beach. A coffee machine, which includes free coffee. ..... " and an endless choice of DVDs should you have a rainy day. The bed is so so comfy (top class linen too) you don't want to get up, with the view from the bed why would you ! And it gets even better, cause this wonderful retreat has three bedrooms, which can be booked for a family, and with direct access to be beach, its a perfect place for any family holiday. We have booked to bring our family with in a few months time. There are plenty of local wonderful restaurants to dine at, or have a BBQ on the BBQ equipment available at the COVE. the kitchen is equipment with all the utensils and equipment you will need, and there is also a full size fridge to stock up for your stay. The list goes on and on.......... This was without doubt the best holiday I have ever had. A visit worth a 5 star rating!!

About the neighbourhood
The Point on which theCOVE is situated is a quiet area with no through traffic. Sunshine Cove itself is a sheltered inlet that is part of the larger Batemans Bay. Just off shore lies the Tollgate Islands. Only a handful of houses front Sunshine Cove and the car park for visitors to the beach is very small and, at the southern end of the beach, away from this property. The beach reserve forms the 'front yard' of theCOVE. No roads to cross here!
Access
Car required
How to get there
Batemans Bay, on the south coast of NSW, is a 1.75 Hr drive from Canberra along the Kings Highway and 3.5 hr drive from Sydney down the M1 Princes Highway passing through Nowra, Berry and Ulludulla. An alternative from Sydney is to take the M5 to Goulburn then through historic Braidwood and on to Batemans Bay. Take Beach Road south out of Batemans Bay through Catalina and Batehaven then past Caseys Beach. theCOVE is on the headland you see ahead .
