Friends who stayed a year ago recommended this place. Easy to see why they enjoyed themselves, so did we. Perfect spot for relaxing, amazing HUGE backyard (thanks for allowing dogs), fantastic beaches. It was very hard to leave. We shall be back to explore more of Kioloa. Monty and family Aug 2016

Highly recommend for anyone looking for comfort, convenient facilities, total enjoyment. Over the last 3 years, we have been coming regularly and it truly is our home away from home. Chris, Canberra, July 2016
We have stayed at the Deweyshack every year since December 2011 for our annual 2-week New Year holiday and will of course be back again December 2016. It IS our home away from home and we are so very happy to keep coming back. There's always something new added or improved each time we come. Thanks for providing a perfect holiday home for us. See you soon, Wendy, Pat and Olivia 13/01/2016
FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!!! Outstandingly great value for money. We visited with cousins from ACT and there was more than enough room for everyone. Very well equipped, clean, comfortable, and so relaxing - it was really hard to leave. The late checkout was very much appreciated. Wife and I wanted to come back a second time on our way home to Brisbane but sadly it was booked for those dates. Cousins very lucky, they say they've found their holiday haven. Wish we were closer. Mike from Brisbane 13 Feb 2015
We just wanted to say how much we really enjoyed this place...very well furnished for the price. The owners have thought of just about everything you could need for a good holiday. The backyard is huge and the deck is terrific, especially in the evening while watching the sunset over the forest canopy nearby. Our furry friend enjoyed the large backyard. Thanks for having us - we'll be back. Guilly ACT 31 Jan 2015
