"Ideally located"

We stayed at this very comfortable property for 3 nights commencing 20 July 2018. The house has many thoughtful inclusions which made for a very comfortable short break. The house is very spacious and is bright with an abundance of natural light. The backyard is safe and secure with gorgeous camellias in full bloom. Would definitely stay in this property again.

 RWilson; Stayed Jan 2018 @ 1/56 Mirren Street, Hawks Nest 

5 Stars! 

We loved the entire relaxed experience of Tea Gardens. Mirreen Street was close to the beaches, rivers, shops, bush land and if you are clever, plenty of koalas. Tea Gardens is a hidden gem, being a quiet coastal town with plenty of water activities, and a great place to relax with perfect ocean views. Our stay was hit with four freakish days of atrocious winds, but it didn't spoil our stay. We walked along the beaches, enjoying the sand beneath our feet, and took many glorious photos. The unit was clean and tidy, with all amenities you could need. Thank you Tea Gardens Real Estate.

WAnthes; Stayed Sep 2017 @ 9/30 Tuloa Avenue, Hawks Nest 

Loved it! 

Tea Gardens Real Estate is an excellent service. The house is located in a great area - house has comfortable living spaces. We love the relaxed off peak atmosphere. So many beautiful walking tracks through the national park.

"Its a little piece of heaven" 

Such a beautiful area - lovely locals, so friendly. We were lucky enough to stay on the waterfront overlooking the river. The town has such beautiful waterways. Child friendly place; nice, clean town. Location of the house is central to cafes and restaurants along the water. Wish we could have stayed longer.

 Barry; Stayed July 2017 @ 31 Tuloa Ave  

Good family holiday

First time at Hawks Nest for any extended period and three generations of the group thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Even in July the family swam most days and cycled & walked never needing to get the car keys out. House lacked a bit in warmth but was comfortable enough for us oldies and the children

Jan and I want to thank your whole team for achieving a great result for us in a short period and for the support and professionalism provided to us from all of your staff. I was speaking with the purchaser today who also commented on how impressed he was with your team and the advice and support given to him as a purchaser.


Beaches - 3/13 Beach Road - Fantastic apartment, great for the family, everything you need is there. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back see you soon!


Hi Sam, Just letting you know how impressed we were with our brief stay in 60 The Anchorage. Dog friendly is always a bonus as our Labrador loves Hawks Nest as much as we do. Everything was spotlessly clean, endless supply of crockery etc all in excellent condition. Bedding was super comfortable. There was only 3 of us but there was so much room and beds and would be ideal for our families to get together in the future. Extra features like the table tennis table, games are also great to be able to use. Late checkout was much appreciated and also if you could thank the owners for the bottle of chilled wine, enjoyed drinking looking at that spectacular view of the Myall river.
Regard Hamish and Raylene



Just a short note to say thank you to you and your team at Tea Gardens Realestate for the terrific job you have all done taking care of our property. We as a family decided it was time for us to enjoy the property and start making use of it for our weekends and holidays and eventually maybe relocate up there. The tenants left the house in excellent condition and we can recommend them as tenants if needed. If in the future if we ever need to put our house up for rent, we would not hesitate to contact your agency and have you look after the property again.

We have been coming up here every January since 2007 and we really like Hawks Nest. It has the beach and access to many other places and activities. Also it is not to far away. This is probably the best property we have stayed at in our 6 visits to Hawks Nest. Having a house rather than a unit gave us more space for us and the dog this time, having the pool was really wonderful. The property is really well maintained, furnished and appointed. We were really comfortable and had a great time. Mark Burnard.

 53 The Boulevarde, Winda Woppa, Hawks Nest
This is a little pocket of beachfront heaven. A great house that feels loved and not like it's just slipped off the pages of an interiors magazine. Not precious, just perfect. We loved having lunch on the balcony and just breathing in the stunning view - this was all ours and we couldn't believe it! At night the waves crashing on the shore felt like we were in a movie. Romantic, idyllic - a true escape we'll run away to again and again. The adults loved it. The children loved it. That's why this is our Love Shack - and always will be. - Phyllis

Thank you very much on the wonderful service your office gives to us all.... your agency runs like clockwork

We enjoyed our time at Hawks Nest and will see you again at Easter...

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you, your family and staff.


Hi there,


Just a quick note to say thank you for your help with our purchase of 36 Albatross Ave. It has been a relatively smooth transaction and we are looking forward to enjoying many holidays there.



Jodie Page 


Thank you so much again. I can't believe how great your customer
service is compared to all the others and our current agent! We have friends who own a place here and they are not happy with there agent,  I'll be recommending you guys! You would have to be the best agents on hawks/tea gardens. Sorry for the late reply we have just been getting settled but we are enjoying tea gardens very much.

Thanks again.
See you around.
Cara Greenwell


Hi Rick& Trish,

We would like to pass on our sincere thanks for your generous token of appreciation of a dinner at Tillerman’s Restaurant. We greatly enjoyed this dinner, the food was outstanding & the restaurant itself was absolutely perfect to celebrate our new house in Tea Gardens.

Spending and enjoying our first few weeks in our new house has made it extremely tempting to move to Tea Gardens permanently – it will possibly be sooner than we have planned.

Thank you again to you and all the team at Tea Gardens Real Estate for helping us achieve our dream.

Kind regards,

Peter & Sue Sparke.


Just thought I would drop you a line to provide some feedback on your team. Some 3-4 yrs ago we made the decision to change agents from ".....  ...." Real Estate to Tea Gardens Real Estate. To date, Michael and I have not regretted this decision. As always your staff are more than happy to help, are very professional and pleasant to deal with and above all, your office has kept in times with the changing technology. Recently we changed our tenancy from holiday to permanent. It was amazing how quickly this was done, and how effortless your team made it.

 Please pass on our special thanks to Kelly and Donna and the rest of the team.
