Waves and Wildlife Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2017

Fantastic location - they haven't exaggerated on the waves and wildlife! Kangaroos come right up to your cabin!

Lovely welcoming note and gifts (won't spoil the surprise!) and the hosts were lovely when we had a slight issue with the TV.

Cabin very roomy for a family of 4. All the mod cons in the kitchen and a bbq and deck for eating in (but it's a quick walk to the Rockpool Café which we would recommend!)

No internet access in the cabin but you can stroll to the top of the hill (2 min walk) to get a call out or update Facebook on the time you are having!

Would stay again and will recommend.

We were so incredibly happy that we booked this accommodation. We turned up late afternoon and our jaws dropped at the stunning view, the cute cabin, and the furry KI kangaroos right outside our cabin. Recommend walking down the hill to the Rockpool Cafe to have their freshly cooked seafood. So so good. (Mind you we were attacked by magpies on the way down which made a memorable holiday moment!). We plan to go back to waves and wildlife cottages for a whole week with the kids - such a very special place.

We come annually with the family and it is truly amazing. Perfect view, your own beach, close to the national parks. Pandarna 25 minutes up the road. Waves and wildlife is self contained so its perfect for families. The owners are brilliant and so helpful. There is abundant wildlife at your doorstep. A BBQ area and seating at your door to watch the sunset. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Amazing!

Waves and wildlife is the place to see wildlife right at your door. Imagine waking up everyday with your own herd of kangaroo just off in the distance as you gaze onto the beautiful stokes bay. This place is a must for animal lovers. The owner Paul is very friendly and may even let you hold his pet kuala

This place bears its name perfectly.
The cottages are located overhanging facing the sea. They have a beautiful terrace.
They are large and very well equipped and are very suitable for families. *
It is the ideal place to go to meet the kangarous. More than fifty of them seem to have taken up residence around the cottages. Even an oposum visited us.
