A great quirky beach getaway
October 3, 2017
We loved everything about this retro cottage. It is a 2minute walk to a beautiful beach. The house had everything we needed for 2 families. The 3 bathrooms and the outdoor shower were a bonus! The pet friendly and safe garden showed the owners had a real appreciation of what travelling with your pets mean. The dogs and their owners loved walking on the beach.

Great house for dogs and humans. Loads of bathrooms even on in the backyard. The verandahs were brilliant. The front one is enclosed for the dogs and has beautiful morning sun to have breakfast in. It is also enclosed. The backyard verandah is huge with a gray bbq. Big backyard for the dogs. Well equipped. So quiet and peaceful, with access to the beach a couple of houses away. Woolworths is a plus in town, highly recommend this property. Also clean an quirky which is fun. Thankyou for a great stay.

Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay great facilities, awesome yard for the dogs, close to beach.

Great fun. A relaxed place to stay within walking distance from the beach and yet within easy reach of shops. Our dogs appreciated the well fenced yard, plenty of room to spread out and we really made use of the outside bath/shower.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Life’s A Beach. The beach was only five houses away on a very quiet street, the house was very comfortable and we enjoyed the large deck with BBQ. There was also a large safe yard for our dog.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location was pretty good with the beach only 100 metres away. Decent size backyarď for our dog. Showers were good and good wifi connection. As a suggestion, the house could do with some flyscreens so doors can be open to let the breeze in as it gets quite warm. Couldnt open the doors due to alot of insects and a few spiders coming in.
One of the best beachside stays we have ever had!

One of the best beachside stays we have ever had. From the fab retro look to the outside shower (one of three!) it just ticked all the boxes. Dog loved the big back yard and the fireplace at night. I loved the beach was so close and the outside shower (did I mention that?) and the better half had the best sleep in ages. Five stars for a great stay, great facillities and pet friendly. Will be staying again.
Fun for dog and humans!

The property has a large enclosed grassy backyard, which is great for playing frisbee and keeping dog happy. It also has a lovely big deck with large table and chairs to relax on. The house is quiet and very close to beautiful dog-friendly beach. Three bathrooms, one of which is an outdoor bath and shower, exposed to the sky but screened. Great selection of films to choose from. Only drawback was the beds were a little short and lumpy.
Perfect location, comfortable and fully equipped

This was a great holiday house. It is close to the beach, fully equipped with wet weather activities and had all the necessary features required for a comfortable stay. Our dogs were well contained. They were happy to play in the backyard with toys supplied (our toys were not interesting enough!). The beach was dog friendly and clean. Wished we could have stayed longer.
We loved our stay at this relaxing beach house

We loved our stay! The house was the perfect beach retreat for the weekend. Quick and clear communication from Nicky, easy to access, great layout, retro decor, entertainment area and big backyard. Will definitely stay again.

Loved our stay at this gorgeous beach cottage with its fun retro vibe – 1950s flair but with all mod cons! The garden is beautiful and the outdoor bath is perfect after a day on the beach which is just at the end of the street… Its lovely and quiet, spotlessly clean and really well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing beach break. We will definitely be planning another visit in the future.

We loved our stay at this gorgeous 50s property, just doors away from a quiet and beautiful dog friendly beach… We’ve already booked a return trip!

We have stayed at Life’s A Beach 3 times now and have loved it each time. The new renovations make the place even more comfortable.
holiday that was needed
April 7, 2015
very good place to relax and enjoy with dogs would do it again

The atmosphere is quirky but everything is comfortable. For tall people the double beds are a bit short but otherwise comfortable. The yard is secure and peaceful, the walk to the beach takes 5 minutes down the cul-de-sac and onto the path. The whole experience was very dog friendly. There were a lot of mossies this year, but we found that closing the windows when we turned on the lights, and keeping the ceiling fans going kept them away at night.

What was apparent to us was the generosity of the owners- all the thoughtful touches that made our stay enjoyable: the mini Christmas tree, the kitchen tools and basic items like soy sauce, theme decorated rooms, quality linen on the beds and fabulous era style, we loved it all. The only thing missing is a frangipani tree or two in the manicured garden. Great holiday vibe.
A Wonderful Short Stay Holiday House
May 19, 2014
We loved our short stay at Life’s a Beach. This quirky house has a wonderful laid-back feel; is equipped with everything you need; and is situated just 3 houses from the beach. Our City dog had a wonderful time too. Owners replied within minutes of booking request and were great to deal with. We’ll be back!

We really enjoyed our stay here. A real walk down memory lane. Very comfortable home. Our dog loved it as well. So close to the beach. Would definitely come back

Highly recommend this unique and quirky beach house for a weekend away. The owners have thought of everything! Very comfortable, clean, super relaxing atmosphere, beach is a minutes walk away, quiet location, love the outdoor shower, saw whales and dolphins every day, and the locals are all really friendly. Thank you Life’s a Beach my friends and I had a wonderful weekend away in your beautiful abode will definitely return.

The break itself – the ease of organising something short like this, and take the time to get away. The property is wonderful in its being decked out in the 1950s style, and my kids didn’t want to leave after our two night stay. We will be back…

A wonderful holiday home for both the family and dogs. The fittings and furniture brought back so many very happy childhood memories. The welcome gifts were very much appreciated and everything you could need was provided for the dogs who enjoyed the large and safe yard. The beach being so close was a real treat. Would love to go back and stay again.

What a fabulous place – totally comfortable and packed with gorgeous vintage pieces! Our dog loved the huge grassy backyard and the short stroll to the beautiful beach; we loved the peace and quiet and the amazing surrounds: so many beaches and walks to choose from! We’ll definitely be returning.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Highly recommended. The 50’s styling and all the lovely extra touches (the address tags for the dogs is so bloody thoughtful!), the ease of access to the local beach, the furnishings, the enclosed yard, all added up to give us a wonderful Xmas break.

Excellent holiday location, the house had everything you could possibly want. Ideal for both dogs and children. The fifties decor was great fun. The owners have done a wonderful job. We loved it and will definitely be back.

A fabulous flashback with all the mod cons. We had a great time here in Jan hols. We took our 13 year old retriever and he became a pup again.Agreat location beautiful beaches and friendly people. Will certainly go back!!!

Just returned home from a week at this gorgeous beach house, what a treat it was! ‘Life’s a Beach’ cottage truly felt like home, with that extra something special of stepping back in time when life wasn’t quite so complicated. Although our sharpeis Boo & Zsa Zsa didn’t quite take to the water as we had hoped (they live in the bush when not on holiday!), our kids adored being so close to the beach, collecting shells and riding the waves. A lovingly restored house in a most picturesque setting; one couldn’t ask for more when looking for holiday accommodation. The kind of place that inspires a sea change!

Very well kitted out home, with retro fittings, furniture and crockery. Huge yard for the dog you brought along. Don’t have a dog? Borrow someone else’s before you come down.

It was a wonderful break at lifes a beach, 80 metres from the beach, a great house,very well equipped and the champagne for the humans and dog treats for the four legged people are a great touch. The back yard is huge complete with a basket of dogs toys. We had a great time and look forward to returning.
