holiday accommodation website
Since July 2013, we have had a very successful relationship with the accommodation group STAYZ.... Our current Stayz listing expires today August 30, 2015. By today we had to renew our subscription or choose something different.... and we have made that choice.
Hargraves Beach House chooses to take direct control by offering this site to book directly with us - at the moment we are booked out until January 2016 - and we will have a live up to date calendar on this site within the next week - this calendar will always be up to date.
So our connection with Stayz ends today, we have refused to renew due to a minimum 304 % and maximum 975% increase in their basic fee and also refused their second option; a 350% increase in their flat fee per booking.
Email us direct at email@example.com or phone Ian on 0429 265 050 for a direct enquiry. No sms's please, we want to talk to a real person as we are sure you want to as well.

There is a $200 cleaning fee and optional outdoor heated spa use has a $100 cleaning and water replacement fee. Maximum capacity is 12 guests plus up to 2 infants.

Enter from the secure double lock up garage with internal stair access to the home. 24 hour check-in at the house - no need to pick up keys from another location.

There are 12 seperate premium super comfortable ensemble beds. Four of the five bedrooms can be altered to suit combinations of king doubles and/or twin singles, the remaining bedroom has four adult size bunk beds.

These double deck bunk beds have pillow-top best quality mattresses and are adult size and length, but access to the top two bunks is by a small ladder as you can see in the above photo gallery, it is more suited to children, teenagers and lithe adults.
