“Huge thank you to the Short Stays team who managed to accommodate my family into this home after our other accommodation booked through a different company fell through at the last minute. We were so grateful!! The position is fantastic, being a short stroll to the Koonya Back Beach & General Store and the home itself was super cosy with a great backyard to accommodate our dog. We will definitely be back next year.”

“I couldn’t believe this type of accommodation could be found in the heart of Sorrento, we had our own private pool and view overlooking the Sorrento township. It truly felt as though we were staying in a private luxury villa in a resort town. Thank you to the team at Jellis Craig Short Stays for turning on the lights and heater for us so the apartment was welcoming when we arrived so late in the middle of Winter and for pre booking a visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs for us.”

“The team at Jellis Craig Short Stays have been managing my holiday rental property for the past 3 years after working out a detailed plan that incorporated my personal requirements whilst the property optimises its rental value. Their level of service is always outstanding and professional making the process easy, stress free and successful. Their commitment to ensuring the property is “guest ready” prior to a stay and that it is checked for any damage after a stay ensures I continue to feel safe in sharing my space. I would not hesitate in recommending the team to look after your investment."
