Welcome to The Big Wave, a holiday home that stands tall, large, and proud, offering multiple levels throughout to provide ample space for your group. This inviting retreat accommodates up to eleven guests across three bedrooms, with the garage converted into an additional sleeping space. 
Located at the end of a shared driveway, well off the road, The Big Wave welcomes you with a tiled floor and high ceilings throughout, creating a light and bright atmosphere. The kitchen and ground floor living area connect seamlessly, with staircases on either side.

On the spacious ground floor, a tranquil living area opens onto your private, shaded deck surrounded by established gardens and trees. Enjoy a BBQ grill and outdoor seating, perfect for relaxing on stunning afternoons or cooler mornings while listening to the birds and sipping on coffee.

The middle floor features bedroom one with a queen bed and deck access, a study room with a desk and chair, the main bathroom with a bath, shower, and basin, a separate toilet, and the laundry with a washer (no dryer, sorry).

Ascending to the next level, you’ll find a large open kitchen with top-quality stainless steel appliances and a walk-in scullery. Take advantage of the provided coffee machine while the cook prepares meals. The second lounge features a built-in window seat bathed in sunlight. The dining area, located in a glass conservatory, overlooks the street, offering warmth in the summers and protection from the elements.

At the very top is the master bedroom with a king bed, ceiling fan, and ensuite featuring a walk-in shower, toilet, and basin. The kids will be delighted to discover a hidden room accessible via a ladder—a small play space just off the kitchen.

The garage serves as the ultimate hangout for older kids, featuring two single beds, a set of bunk beds, and a foosball table. The third bedroom opens off the garage and includes a queen bed with access to the exterior front of the house.

With various rooms and spaces, this home caters to large families seeking a holiday retreat under one roof. There is parking space for two vehicles on the shared driveway and plenty of free parking on the street if needed (please note: no garage parking, and only two cars can park at the house).

The beach is a casual five-minute stroll away, and on your way back, stop by the Tay Street cafe for a refreshing smoothie, coffee, and a bite to eat. The Big Wave invites you to enjoy its unique and spacious design for a memorable family holiday.
