Places to eat

We are located in a remote location so our fine dining options are limited! The kitchens in our accommodation are well equipped so take advantage of this and cook up a storm while you’re here. Nowra Fresh on the way down from Sydney offers great fresh seafood, meat and veggies. SPAR supermarket in Sussex Inlet is open until 7pm most nights so also very handy. Cuddy General Store is a short walk away from us and has a lovely view of Swan Lake.

Island Sushi is located a bit further along Goonawarra Drive in a colourful pink and red food van out the front of Lakeside Cabins and Holiday Village. Offering authentic Japanese Hawaiian Cuisine for lunch, we highly recommend fitting them into your itinerary.

Milton is great for having a stroll through the shops and eating out.

Beautiful cabin stay, lovely clean and modern, very quiet area beach just metres away. Great service, wonderful COVID practice and felt safe . Highly recommended.


We loved our 2 bedroom cabin. It was clean, fresh and so many small touches made it feel like a home away from home. We loved sitting on our little verandah listening to the sounds of the ocean each night. The shower was amazing!


Spotless, had everything I could ask for, best bed and pillows, comfortable furniture, quiet location, walk to beach, great staff. I would live there in a heartbeat.


A-maz-ing 🙌🙌🙌 we are in love 😍 A peaceful, tranquil park setting next to the beach 🏖 Clean and hot showers 🚿 Lovely cooking area. Friendly staff who are willing to help with all your needs.


Erica was very welcoming and the caravan was great! Right next to the forest... we fell asleep with sound of the ocean right next to us! Great weekend! Thanks guys!


Such a great facility right on the water! I love that they cater for pets as so many places don’t! So clean, super comfy and everything you need in a gorgeous location! Will definitely be back, thank you so much!
