This grand, architecturally designed country house, built almost entirely of beautiful timber, must be one of the best located coastal properties in NSW. Positioned high on hill, it's very private, and has breathtaking views up the coast and across the Macleay River estuaries to the mountains.
It was very comfortably and interestingly furnished and the kitchen well equipped to a very high level. Beds were very comfortable (but we brought our own linen.)
The huge balcony was a sensational spot to have breakfast in the morning sun or to watch the sunset and the kangaroos on the lawn below.
For all of us (3 couples) it was unquestionably the most memorable holiday house we have ever stayed in, and we probably will be back next year.
Thoroughly recommended.

What a beautiful home to rent for a group or family. I had been coming to South West Rocks as a child with the family when I was young but this home was something else, really special. Perfect for the group my partner and I were traveling with; there was heaps of room with lots of bedrooms and ample beds, bathrooms and a huge kitchen.
From the moment we drove up the driveway you felt like this was an architects dream amongst the Aussie bush. The timber structure, highlighted with sandstone fireplace was amazing, all with a backdrop of the bush, local kangaroos, Macleay River and the ocean in the background.
The kids loved watching there movies in the home theatre downstairs whilst we were able to enjoy dinner looking over the garden with the sun setting over the river.
Coming up to this place was like our own retreat, operating on our time and really having the chance to relax amazing!

Myself and my siblings, four in total plus, spouses, have been having short breaks annually now since 2007. Mostly we have been in the mid North Coast area and have always enjoyed our stays, And all of us, now in our 80s now just enjoying our time together. Tallowood turns out to be our choice over those years. It is an absolutely fantastic home, for our purpose, and it has a view to die for. The home, and its amenities, covers everything you could possibly want. So much so, we want to return.
