Flexible family home close to Box Beach
The Location - Offering flexibility to the extended family this house is set close to the breaking waves of Box Beach. Home to the Burton Surf Classic every year this is an unpatrolled beach that offers amazing views of Fingal Spit, Tomaree Mountain and the panorama of the Pacific Ocean. An extensive network of trails gives ample opportunity for cycling or walking to access nearby beaches or simply enjoy a picnic on the beach, or for the more active a hike up Tomaree headland. If you are seeking patrolled beaches Fingal Beach is a two minute drive away and provides safe swimming for toddlers on the Southern end or wave pumping action at the Northern end. If you're feeling up to it join Fingal Park run every Saturday morning at 8am before enjoying a delicious breakfast at Longboat Cafe and hitting the waves.
Also close by is the lovely seaside village of Shoal Bay, offering a myriad of dining options as well as bike, kayak, surfboard and SUP hire. A little further away is the township of Nelson Bay with a good range of family friendly dining options, Nelson Bay Wests club , Nelson Bay Golf Club and bowling club as well as some more upmarket choices.

However you want to spend your time you will love the whisper quiet location of this home and the laid back holiday vibe.

Looks can be deceiving!
Booked over the Christmas period & was very disappointed with the state of the property. Was filthy & needed cleaning upon arrival. Second toilet leaked, no batteries in remotes required to turn on bedroom lights/fans. Second bedroom door broken (didn’t close). Lounges were stained & smelt- need professional clean or throwing out. Main keys given didn’t open downstairs living area. Garage was unable to be opened & carport to downstairs living is more an outdoor sitting area than place to park car. No grass or play area for children although box beach is a short walk. TV downstairs intermittent in working. Newer kitchens in upstairs and downstairs however no mod cons. Bring your own comforts & cleaning supplies.
