We had a very enjoyable two week stay at Booderee Villas. The villa was extremely well equipped throughout; particularly the kitchen. All of the bedrooms were well appointed and had great linen and bedding. The design and furnishings created a fresh, relaxing coastal vibe. The sound of the cicadas added to the peacefulness of the location which was only 5 minutes from the beach and centrally located to explore the best of Jervis Bay. The customer service and care provided by Vesna was excellent.
Michael, Danielle & family
Wonda & family
We had a wonderful stay and the villa was perfect. Thank you!
Laura & family
Great position close to shops, bay and beach. Very quiet. Bushland across the road. Tastefully furnished. Our kids loved playing with neighbour’s kids up and down the driveway of the property.
Rob & family
The accommodation was beautiful and quiet with plenty of room for us and the kids. It was perfectly equipped and allowed us space for a car to be able to explore close by or further afield. The host Vesna was really helpful and responsive. The little touches of local platters and gift was also gorgeous. Spacious, clean and perfect for friends as a group getaway or for a family.
Emma, Michael & family
Thanks again for a lovely stay at Booderee Villas.
Melissa, Harry & family
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Booderee Villas.
Property owner Vesna was so lovely. I’m glad we got to meet her! The villa itself was lovely – clean, modern and great kitchen amenities.
Eleanor, Mathew & Banjo
Vesna, Everything was perfect at Booderee Villas. Thank you for your great hospitality. We appreciated the stay and the local area is fantastic.
Hassan, Tarek & families
Just want to say thank you for hosting me and my family for 3 nights this winter. Booderee Villas was perfect! Extremely comfortable, clean with all the associated amenities (and more) required for the stay. We will definitely be back! Thank you again.
We’ve travelled to Callala before and it never disappoints. We booked Booderee Villas direct with the owners. The accommodation is private, brand new and extremely spacious, and having the kangaroos on the front lawn in the morning just topped our weekend away. Luxurious holiday home, great amenities just wish we could stay a bit longer.
Alana, Mick & family
From the moment we arrived, Hazelwood Beach House was nothing but perfect. The house itself is beautiful, with everything you could need for a weekend getaway at your finger tips. Located within the treetops and the beach so close, it couldn’t be a more ideal location. We couldn’t recommend a stay at Callala more.
Chloe & partner
We spent our first summer family holiday at Hazelwood Beach House and loved every minute of it! The house itself was a delight and had every possible amenity one could ask for. The location was very convenient to the beach, where we went everyday and we were also able to explore the neighbouring areas and beaches. I highly recommend staying and I would definitely go back!
Dan & family
Our two night stay at Jervis Bay was wonderful! The house is beautiful and perfect for a family getaway like ours. Everything was exceptionally clean and it was so so close to the beach for morning/late arvo walks! The location allows for easy exploring of the nearby towns. Overall a fantastic stay and we will be back 🙂 x
Britt & family
Thank you for the little touches that made our stay special.This is a beautiful home that really does feel like a home away from home. The position is lovely and quiet while the home itself is state of the art. We will return and recommend it highly. Thanks again for the very attentive and generous service to the owners/managers of White Sand Jervis Bay.
Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us. We all had an awesome time (15 month old, 17/18 year olds, 21 year old and 2 that are a lot older!). Having holidayed at Hyams Beach a lot in the past I am now converted to Callala Beach. Thank you.
Fiona & family
Just a quick note to say we had a great time. What a beautiful place! And it had everything we needed plus more. The kids had a great time too. Would definitely come back again! Thank you so much!
The house was amazing. We have stayed at a lot of beach houses and we were amazed at how much this house had. It had everything we needed from toiletries to spices, even kids toys and food containers! The house is very close to the beach but most of our time was spent at the pool house. There’s nothing bad I can say about the house except for having to leave. We would love to come back and would definitely recommend this house!
Catherine & family
Had a magnificent stay. House was well located, close to beach and very relaxing and when we get time we will be staying here again!!
Greg & fiance
My fiancee and I visited Jervis Bay for my birthday last week and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The location is relaxing and peaceful. The design of the house is stunning and there is so much room to lay around and read a book, listen to music or sit outside on the balcony with a good glass of wine.
The beach is one street from the property and you can walk along the sand for miles. We encountered some gorgeous wildlife on our visit and despite the rain managed to swim in the indoor heated pool which was a great bonus. I look forward to my second visit in September with some friends!
Hazelwood Beach House was exceptional. Very clean and well equipped kitchen, plenty of room and large bedrooms. Loved the service offered by the hosts.
We would highly recommend this property as immediately we were able to relax in style.We were impressed by the quality of all the furniture and the beautiful design of the home. We appreciated the way in which all adults and children were able to be entertained and therefore could really relax.
Hazelwood Beach House is a truly beautiful home in a perfect location – an easy walk to Callala beach and a short drive to the other lovely beaches the South Coast has to offer. Even though we didn’t have perfect weather, we enjoyed every minute inside this impeccably designed house. Every aspect was thoughtful – the coffee and wine provided, the appliances and comfortable furnishings. Vesna was excellent to communicate with, prompt and always helpful. The sunrise from the deck was a magical way to start each day. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Ross & family
The house was perfect! Great location and very clean. Vesna’s home was like a home away from home. Highly recommended.
Daniela & friends
Really gratefully to the owners of this fantastic property, everything went really well, really smooth transaction, really clear and prompt communication for the lead up to our stay. The house is very easy to live in and has everything you could possibly need including cooking utensils and ingredients. The place is very clean, modern, close to the beach (you can hear the waves from the front balcony at Hazelwood Beach House) and a short drive to shops. We will definitely be back next year if not sooner!
Had a great weekend in this fantastic house. Very well appointed. Location is very quiet and a little out of the way which was great for a quiet weekend. A few minutes walk to the beach was just ideal! Thank you for making Easter very enjoyable!
Jason & family
Thank you for a wonderful weekend in such an amazing house. Everything we wanted was on hand and more! The kids loved the beach and even “their” bedroom and your attention to detail to make our stay comfortable will see us back for another stay.
We loved our stay at Hazelwood Beach House. The owners left lovely touches including luxury toiletries, coffee machine and capsules and chocolates and champagne on arrival. They were also so helpful and friendly. The designer furnishings and style of the property is so sophisticated and aesthetically gorgeous also and the bathroom downstairs is perfect for post-beach showers. The sound system and dvd set up was also fantastic. Only a two minute walk to the beach down a lovely bush path and across the road from the indoor-heated swimming pool we were perfectly placed to enjoy swimming whatever the weather. Highly recommend staying in this designer home.
Nicole & family
Extraordinary house! Modern and inviting, very well appointed kitchen and spacious ensuite bathrooms. Comfortable beds, fluffy towels, and a warm fireplace that did well to keep us toasty on a chilly long weekend. The house is part of an Estate and the trees have been left behind to create a lovely oasis. Quick walk to the spectacular beach, or across the street to the heated indoor swimming pool. This is a beautiful part of Jervis Bay. The local shops have everything you need but you won’t want to leave the house! We’ll be back!
Trish & family
From the outstanding design and detail of the house, to the surroundings of the nearby white sandy beach, this is a must for a stress free and memorable vacation. The spacious and open plan living areas make it a comfortable place to be even when the weather is not favourable. Everything we could have needed was provided and the only regret was bringing too many items! We highly recommend this place and thank the owners for the opportunity to stay at their home.
Daniel & family
We spent a magical week at Hazelwood Beach House. Incredible house and so close to an amazing beach, with fantastic day trip options scattered around the Jervis Bay region. Can’t recommend it enough for a real getaway and recharge of the batteries. Thank you Vesna!
Silvia & family
Our extended family (3 generations) spent Christmas here and had an absolutely splendid time! The house is beautifully designed and quite spacious, with plenty of room for our 3-year old to run around and play! The kitchen is well equipped, and we had a blast cooking large family meals both inside as well as out on the BBQ. And the location!! Just a short stroll to the pristine white sands of Callala Beach, perfect for building sand castles during the day or for hermit-crab hunting at dusk. One of our best holiday experiences to date, I am missing it already and want to go back.
Kate & family
Malisa & friends
Absolutely recommend! Very impressed with the host and the house. Perfect for a weekend getaway. 10/10.
