Great location
Beautiful house in a perfect location. Some quirks (fridge is quite noisy and ‘moans’, dishwasher and microwave work well but took some figuring out). An extra bedside light in the bunk room and the sunroom would be good. But we managed perfectly well. The location is to die for. Right by the rock pools with views across the bay. We spotted kangaroos, rabbits and dolphins from the lounge room! Thanks Wendy.

Beautiful week at old Schoolhouse
We have stayed at The old schoolhouse a number of times and it is always wonderful. Outstanding location, very clean and comfortable house. Feels very much like home away from home. We had great weather and it was all really relaxing. I highly recommend Wendy's beautiful house. Wendy, herself was super responsive and helpful

Most relaxing holiday
What an incredible location so close to the gorgeous Currarong Rockpool. The old schoolhouse was the perfect holiday house with windows & doors wide open to the beauty of the peninsula. It was generously stocked with everything we needed. Thank you Wendy for a much needed break with family & friends.

beware! dirty, bugs in bed and no respect for guests
the house is in a prime location and a lovely old house. but run down and not clean plus although essentials are provided there is nothing that shows true hospitality. no love or care for guests, no warm welcome. on top there were not enough wine glasses, but worn plastic cups, dishwasher was not working properly, bugs and hair on mattresses on arrival, clothes dryer was not working properly and communication with host was great upfront but then turned nasty and confrontational after our departure. overall I would not recommend for the price, not worth it, eventhough we love Currarong. been to many houses and none were this disappointing.
