The camp is exactly as described in the listing and Alan is an accomodating host. The location was convenient for our 1 night stay on the driveway in our VW campervan. I'd recommend levelling chocks to iron out the slight gradient but they are far from essential.

Good pit stop if you need a night to camp. You camp in Allans front yard. Allan is really friendly and will give you a little tour of his back yard as well. Handy that there’s a power point and a toilet! Lovely little beach just a short drive away.

A clean front lawn to pitch a tent and well kept backyard with lots to see. Alan is a very friendly and welcoming host with lots of stories to share about the area and beyond. Perfect for a quick stopover for those on a road trip up or down the coast.

Alan welcomed us when we arrived and gave us a tour around the campsite while sharing interesting things that happened around the site. There's a toilet and shower which was very convenient. Alan was really helpful by providing us the extension cord. We definitely recommend this as we had a great night sleep and our puppy is over the moon that we brought him along to camp since this site is pet friendly.

Hi Jolyn, thanks for the kind words. Just to be clear for people reading this, under the Local Government Act, Moveable Dwellings Sec 77, which I have on my info page, I couldn't really call it a camping ground etc as I am allowed to have 2 caravans, two camper vans or two tents on my property for a couple of days without a Development Approval from Wollongong Council because they are all moveable dwellings....so here one moment, gone the next!!! But it's basically still a new concept from Hipcamp that if you have the room, why not use your property!! Once again thanks for the kind words, Cheers Alan

This is a residential home stay, with dual driveway access. The front garden area is lovely and quite private, watch out for mozzies!
At rear of the house is an independently accessible toilet and shower.
Allan is a lovely host, very knowledgeable of the area and loves to chat!
