A truly unique weekend escape only an hour and a half from Sydney CBD. You'll feel your worries melt away driving down the private dirt road to your oasis in the bush. The Bungalow is set in lush surrounds with sweeping ocean views. Freshly renovated with brand new furnishings and linen, you'll have all the comforts of home whilst you enjoy the sounds of nature from your own private deck or from the comfort of your bed perched high up in the loft. A perfect couples retreat.
The Bungalow offers the best of both worlds - bush and beach. With no visible neighbours except for the main house on the property you'll feel like you are a million miles away. Lounge on the outdoor couch on your own private deck and enjoy sweeping ocean views or watch the sunrise from the comfort of your loft bed overlooking the ocean. The Bungalow offers something a little different from most listings in the area. The beach and cafes are a 10-15 minute walk from our house. The Bungalow does have a stove top cooker, but no oven. So if you're a passionate chef, it's probably not the space for you. Otherwise keep things simple. Coledale offers a great selection of first rate cafes with incredible food to cater for all dietary requirements. Try Earth Walker or Mr & Mrs Smith or literally dozens of other cafes, bars and restaurants from Coledale to Thirroul including Headlands Hotel, Jose Jones & South Sailor to name a few. There are endless beaches, ocean pools and surf breaks to choose from or spend the weekend exploring the beauty of the escarpment with numerous walking trails to suit all levels of fitness. Try a yoga class or simply unwind on the deck. You won't be disappointed.
Life is a little slower in Coledale. Wander down to one of our local cafes for a long breakfast. Explore the headland walk to the SeaCliff Bridge or spend the day on the beach. There are so many beaches to choose from not to mention the beautiful ocean pool at Coledale or many others sprinkled all along the coast from north to south.
  • Such an incredible place, with an awesome see views, I got up earlier this morning for the sunrise, you can enjoy the sunrise indoor and outdoor even on bed, so bad we only stay here for just one night, we will definitely come back next time!!!!!!

  • Sarah’s Airbnb is incredible, feels super romantic and secluded while still being close to town and the beach. Would love to go back!

    Sammy2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We got lost a few times getting there, but once we figured it out - we had the best time at Sarah's little bungalow. Beautifully designed and tucked away from the main road, but close to everything. Some great tips on where to go as well. Thank you so much!

    Chris2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay at the bungalow. A very cool space, super relaxing. Enjoyed the local cafes and surroundings. Would recommend.

    Emma2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a gorgeous little hideaway, surrounded by bush and with ocean views. I went for a night as a little retreat from life and it was the perfect spot. Sarah is lovely to deal with, the place is spotless and it's very peaceful. I completely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

    Tash 2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in the hills, waking up with THE best sunrise view creeping through the window (we left the blind open). WiFi is currently down, though it's nice to disconnect once in a while. Hosts have great recommendations for food, etc. and you're welcomed by two gentle Golden Retrievers.

    Matt2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous, clean space with an incredible view! Lovely hosts (and pooches) that make you feel right at home. Can’t wait to be back!

    Your holiday getaway occupies the entire top floor of our beachside home and ensures absolute privacy - plus it's only a 5min walk to beautiful Coledale Beach. The light-filled apartment comprises master bedroom, large kitchenette/dining/lounge, bathroom, deck and upper floor balcony, taking in the magnificent ocean views. The living area faces east, capturing the early morning sun through 2 sets of French doors, while the west-facing bedroom means you can enjoy a late morning sleep-in. Enjoy!
    Coledale Cove apartment is situated on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, which winds through idyllic coastal communities from Stanwell Tops to Thirroul. With your own entrance and sole-use of the top floor balcony, you are ensured absolute privacy. Open the two-sets of French doors off the living area and relax on the balcony, taking in the magnificent uninterrupted views of the ocean. Or, after walking up from the beach, you can wash the sand off your feet and sit for a while on your own private deck, which also has a view of the ocean. The kitchenette is complete with microwave, jug, toaster, refrigerator and two-burner hotplate. With polished timber floors throughout, windows on every side and a cool sea breeze, you are ensured a very enjoyable stay. Please note: Because the apartment is situated on the top floor of a private residence and there is a family living below, noises can be heard between the levels. Consideration of this fact is appreciated from everyone who occupies the house to ensure a harmonious time is had by all. Unfortunately the apartment is not suitable for children aged 6 months to 12yrs old, but there is a high chair available (at no extra cost) and a portable cot and linen (for an extra fee) available for babies under 6 months old.
    There are many beaches, ocean pools, restaurants and cafes within a short distance of the apartment, as well as shops and supermarkets. Sea Cliff Bridge, the Royal National Park and Symbio Wildlife Park are a twenty minute drive north while Wollongong is a twenty minute drive south. There are also many walking trails nearby to suit all levels of fitness.

    "Seacliff Otford" is just 60mins from Sydney yet feels a million miles away. The house is set on 2 acres on top of a hill and enjoys uninterrupted panoramic ocean views. The living areas face north enjoying all year sunshine . The lounge includes a log fire. There is a separate TV room, 4 double bedrooms, 2 luxury bathrooms. The property includes a swimming pool with large sun deck, lawned ares and a tennis court. 8 PEOPLE MAXIMUM, NO PARTIES, BUCKS WEEKENDS OR FUNCTIONS
    Positioned on top of the hill the house enjoys uninterrupted ocean views north to the Royal National Park and south to Wollongong. The house had a cosmetic renovation in 2015 and is decorated in a relaxed modern coastal scheme. There’s a large north facing open plan living and dining room which overlooks the pool. The pool deck has sun lounges to relax and enjoy the ocean views. Off the kitchen & dining area is a lawned area facing west into the garden and bush and a great spot to watch the sunset. Below this area is a concrete tennis court. There is a separate TV room with smart TV (bring movies on a laptop or dongle). 4 differently themed bedrooms; 3 with either a king and queen bed and the forth bedroom with single beds. The kitchen has every gadget needed to prepare and serve meals including a double oven and basic provisions. The house sleeps a maximum of 8 (no exceptions, please don’t ask). There is plenty of parking at the top of the driveway.
    Otford is a small coastal escarpment village of about 40 properties nestled against the southern end of the Royal National Park and known for horses and its spectacular lookout (to Wollongong) which is found at the southern end of the famous Royal National Park Coast Track. Otford is just 60 mins drive (or 70min train ride) south from Sydney yet its tranquil setting makes it feel a million miles away. The area has spectacular beaches, rainforest and waterfalls and it’s a great spot to hike into the Royal National Park beaches and to the famous Figure 8 pool (4 hours return). Otford is the gateway to the Illawarra Coast and 15mins drive from the famous over water Seacliff Bridge. Helensburg (5min drive) has all the amenities including supermarket, butchers and fruit shop. The local Otford pantry does a descent coffee, bread, cakes and pies on weekends and further down the coast the villages of Scarborough, Coledale and Thiroull have thriving food and cafe scenes. For kids (and international tourists) the Symbio Wildlife Park is a must visit to see and interact with Australian wildlife.
  • What you see in the photos is what you get... and more! I stayed here with my friends and we didn’t want to leave. We love the place! We felt so comfortable and relaxed. The place had everything we needed to have a delightful time. Tim and Ed were really helpful and provided detailed instructions for the house. You won’t regret booking this stunning place!

    Steven2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views, incredible house! We had a fantastic weekend in Otford thanks to this beautiful house and great communication from hosts. Highly recommended!

    Eleanor2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is the biggest expectation and experience of this Australian tour. The house is located on the top of the mountain near the Haiya Bridge. The front faces the sea and the back is covered by the forest. You can really experience the feeling of spring flowers facing the sea. There are two huge living rooms and well-equipped kitchens, which are a good choice for friends gathering and vacation. The downside is that the swimming pool does not look clean, with fallen leaves and sediment.

    富民2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great!

    Sarah2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Would be absolutely perfect to spend a few hot sunny days here.. unfortunately we had rain the entire weekend but as it was much needed rain we didn’t mind. Hopefully we get a chance to come back in better weather next time. Highly recommended.

    Rana2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, beautifully kept. Had a lovely time in the pool and enjoyed the ocean views. Hosts are excellent and were very helpful.

    Matthew2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay, the views are amazing and the amenities are top notch. Would highly recommend for families.

    James2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house is incredible. Such a beautiful place that is so close to Sydney but you feel like you are so far away. Cafe is a short walk if you don't want to use the amazing kitchen to cook breakfast (you will want to use the kitchen). Spent my birthday there with friends and everyone had a great time. The house has amazing views and is just so comfy that you will not want to leave. Great and fast communication from the host. 5 star stay.

    Wombarra is widely regarded as the jewel in the crown that is the far northern suburbs of Wollongong. Very few places can offer rugged bush escarpment next to beautiful sandy beaches . All 1 hour from Sydney airport . There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and hotels all with 5 to 10 mins from Wombarra Springs.
  • This tent is a must! Perfect place to unwind and spend quality time with your loved ones or friends. Set in a private and safe location with beautiful nature all around, easy to feel settled and enjoy every second here. A lot of thoughtful touches, you won’t be missing home! Everything you need.

    Teresa2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Truly unforgettable experience! Beautiful place with an even better view. Animals were friendly and approachable. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away from the city.

    Melody2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location is absolutely breathtaking, you cannot beat it! Views to the beach from the bed in the tent and surrounded on all other sides by rainforest, it is really incredible. A couple of things to note about the property - it is a part of a larger campsite so the toilet and shower are about 30m from the tent and a lot of other campers are using them even though there is a ‘glamping only’ sign. This didn’t bother us at all but I thought it might be worth mentioning. We didn’t meet John in person but he was very quick to respond and when we got a bit lost he called to help and was absolutely lovely to speak to. Had the best sleep in the comfy bed too. Would most definitely stay again but perhaps bring a bit more cooking gear as we struggled to get the BBQ to work fully. Thanks for a great stay!!!

    Elivier2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • You’ll be surrounded by the forested escarpment with views straight out to the Tasman Sea, leaving you with breathtaking sunrises and cosy sunsets as you warm up next to the campfire. You’re isolated enough from other guests that privacy won’t be an issue, but the host will be on the property and readily available if required (thanks for bringing us the spare torch!). The animals are a nice touch with some alpacas and horses that roam the area nearby. This is an ideal weekend getaway from Sydney if you’re looking for a secluded glamping experience.

    Matthew2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, quiet and extremely comfortable space and amenities for the glamping tents are very good, in-particular the seperate kitchen space! Awesome views and loved the horses roaming around.

    Laura2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Second time here and there will definitely be a third!

    John2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful glampsite exceeded my expectations by miles, do not hesitate to stay here! My best friend and I had a magical New Year's Eve. The kitchen and bathroom were very glampy indeed. Great location, close to everything you need and surrounded by lush nature. The very friendly ponies were a lovely touch!

    Up in the trees & 6 minutes walk to Coledale Beach. The Artist's Studio property features a private rainforest & walk. Above the ocean on a hill The Artist's Studio is quiet & private; bright, sunny, cool & dry. A great studio bungalow with modern facilities. An excellent get-a-way for couples and solo adventurers.
    In true Australian fashion the Artist's Studio is more about outdoor space than indoor; fresh air and natural smells. There is so much beach and bush that you gotta get into it. Even though the space is just a studio the ceiling averages 2.8 metres (over 9 feet) high. Being up in the trees there is plenty of breeze from all directions. No cooped up feeling here. Good sized shower. Great water pressure. And great tap water. All lights are 2700k LEDs. Plenty of cupboard & hanging space. All cotton sheets. all timber walls, floor & ceiling
    We are situated at the north end of Coledale, in a special 'cove'. Just up to the left is Coledale Hospital, a rehabilitation and aged care hospital. There is no other commercial activity in the immediate neighbourhood. 10 minutes walk south in Coledale proper is the a general store, restaurant, cafe, RSL club, bottle shop. Coledale is a northern gateway to Illawarra beaches - I can brief you according your likes.
  • We have been many times at Gerry's place and it is always great being there. Spotless, welcoming and functional space a stone throw from the beach and not far to some great cafes. The hospitality of Gerry is second to none. Amazing place to stay at.

    Agathe2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

  • Gerry’s place is perfect. The area is beautiful; the house is set among the rain forest with the beach right across the road. Gerry is so lovely and very interesting. You should definitely find time to have a chat with him when you’re there.

  • Fantastic beachside studio. Wonderful ocean views from the balcony and a short walk to Stanwell Park beach. A perfect coastal getaway.

    Chris2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Marty's place will definitely not disappoint you. First of all the view from the balcony (as well as from the living area and even the bed) is astonishing. All this comes with the relaxing sounds of the waves hitting the beach. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the interior has a lot of character, making you feel at home. Marty and his wife were there to welcome us when we arrived (15min walk from the trainstation), showing us around and answering all our questions. Although there is no supermarket and only two places to get food this wasn't a problem. Both of them sell delicious food and the people are friendly. Actually, all of the local people from Stanwell Park we met were very friendly, we got a free tasting at the liquor store and another person took his pedal bike to show us a difficult to find hiking trail to the look out point. Like the license plate of one of the cars in the street said, this is definitely a place to 'unwind' after a busy week at work.

    Gerwin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Marty's place is amazing! Actually amazing. On the last night my partner and I were able to play pool while looking at the ocean views out the almost wall size window. On my last morning I was woken to the views of the sun rising over the ocean and the gentle sound of waves. The water is almost literally at your door step which made perfect for a quick morning dip. The place was sparkling clean, very stylish and Marty & Kate made for very kind hosts. Also, if you're hungry there is a local pizza joint called Renzetti's Italian Pizza. Couldn't recommend their garlic bread enough :)

    Zoe2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hosts and a breath-taking spot. Truly amazing experience staying here!

    Connor2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Marty is a great host! Quick communication, easy check-in, super clean. The beach pad is the perfect getaway - with lovely beach/ocean views for BBQs on the deck, pool table/board games and super handy for some fab local walks. Would highly recommend.

    Stanwell Park, NSW, Australia

    Set in the beautiful Illawarra Escarpment, between bush and beach and just one hour south of Sydney, awaits a lush and airy getaway suited to couples, solo travellers and artists.
    The space is an ex-refrigerated shipping container that we have lovingly restored into a self-contained guest room. Filled with natural sunlight and set amidst native trees and sprawling evergreens, it’s a place to totally unwind, kick back and tune in to nature as lyre birds, kookaburras, wallabies and deer regularly pass through. Winter adds a whole new dimension to the experience with blustery beach walks and cosy evenings under the stars. The container is private with no internal access from the main house - the “main house” being a humble one bedroomed dwelling. Where we live with our little kelpie, Laela who WILL get very excited when she sees you (show her the yellow water pistol and she’ll quickly calm down). She roams freely around the property and keeps the chickens in check so if you are uncomfortable with dogs, then this place is probably not the best place for you. She loves other dogs, but like other dogs, she is protective of her pad so no pets please (but I could be persuaded). Whilst the property does NOT offer direct ocean views (rather glimpses from the garden), the ocean is very much a part of the experience living here. All of the images shown on this site have been taken on my walks to/from Wombarra Beach and Sharky's Beach, both or which are about 10-15 minutes walk (more info in 'The Neighbourhood' section below). Cooking facilities are not provided here given our proximity to a great selection of cafes and restaurants that stretch from Wombarra and into the hip little ‘burb of Thirroul. All tastes and dietary requirements are well catered for and delivery/takeaway is an option if you fancy a quiet night in. The container is equipped with a toaster, kettle, coffee plunger, mini fridge and crockery. Please note this is not a huge space - it's cosy, comfortable, clean and positioned in a beautiful location.
    Wombarra and surrounds have been blessed by Mother Nature. Sandwiched between the lush vegetation of the Illawarra Escarpment and the Pacific Ocean, adventure and exploration on land and water are abound. Uncrowded beaches stretch from Scarborough to Thirroul. Our 'local-local' beaches are Wombarra Beach (for sunrise, a morning dip and explorative walk over the rocks) and Sharky's (surf and dog beach following a darn good brekki/brunch at Earth Walker) and both kick off a lengthy coastal walk, or cycle all the way into Wollongong. There are superb trails for all levels of fitness within 5-10 minutes drive from the property including Sublime Point, Sea Cliff Bridge and Wodi Wodi. Add to that, yoga classes, foragers markets, cafés, bars and restaurants and yes, you have found a fabulous little getaway! EAT in COLEDALE :: Earth Walker & Co General Store and Café The food and coffee here is excellent, as is testament by the weekend queue of locals vying for a table or a takeaway enroute to Sharky's beach. Great selection of vegan and gluten free options. :: Sharky’s Takeaway Fuel up with a gourmet burger or fish n’chips. :: Mr & Mrs Smith A less hectic café/restaurant to Earth Walker this is a place to sip on a coffee in the morning sunshine, or a casual lunchtime wine. in THIRROUL :: Jose Jones An absolute must! The food here is by far the best this side of Sydney! Big call I know, but coming from a vegan that is a big deal. Seasonally inspired daily specials, cocktails, craft beers, live music, cool vibe, great service – check, check, check, check, check and CHECK! Book in advance, particularly on a balmy summers evening when the place gets slammed – or equally on a drizzly arvo when everyone moves indoors! Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. :: South Sailor Casual seafood, indoor and outdoor dining with live weekend music . :: Bread and Espresso Coffee and bakery – enough said! :: Other great eateries to check out: Indian, Pizza, Mexican, Japanese and Thai DRINK and ENTERTAINMENT :: Jose Jones Can’t rave enough about this place, just go! :: Headlands Hotel, Austinmer A nice place to take in the coastal and escarpment views over a quick beverage. :: The Beaches, Thirroul Bands and a large sunny beer garden draw in the younger crowds heading to the city. :: Wombarra Bowlo Take a step back in time and take in the original retro feel of this iconic local watering hole. Enjoy a round of barefoot bowls and a taste of Thai street food before the afternoon sun slips behind the escarpment. Public holidays are typically heaving with spirited locals and live entertainment. :: Scarborough Hotel An iconic establishment that draws the Sydney crowd and with it, the prices! Well worth a visit nonetheless, if only to take in the sweeping coastal views and a bowl of hot chips. :: Anita’s Theatre, Thirroul An impressive performing arts venue with old school charm and host to touring musicians and comedy acts. EXPLORATION :: Sublime Point Lookout Sublime is one of the iconic treks of the Illawarra Escarpment. A challenging walk (or run!) through lush coastal rainforest and up a series of ladders and stairs. Catch your breath and take in the wildlife before making one last push to the top where you will be rewarded with breathtaking views and a café to refuel! :: Wodi Wodi, via the Sea Cliff Bridge This is a 6.5 kilometre track, named after the original Custodians that lived along the Illawarra coast. It’s a circular trip with lookouts along the way. Its my go-to trail and I’ve been lucky enough to have several wedge tail eagle encounters here. :: Bald Hill Lookout Grab an ice-cream and a selfie from this popular lookout - whilst also looking out for hang-gliders! :: Symbio Wildlife and Splash Park Located in Helensburgh it’s well worth the 15 minute drive. Another selfie op with a koala and a chance to hand feed a cheeky mob of kangaroos. :: Foragers Market, Bulli Showground Open last Saturday/Sunday of the month 9.00am – 2.00pm Fresh food and produce from local growers plus arts, crafts and music. Lots of parking. :: Coledale Flea Market Located on the grounds of Coledale Public School, this community event is held every last Sunday of the month with stalls, food, music, hidden treasures and chilled vibes :: Retro Wombat, Thirroul If you love antiques, up cycling and finding hidden treasure then please go check this quirky Thirroul establishment out! ESSENTIALS Coles Supermarket, Thirroul IGA Supermarket, Thirroul Woolworths Supermarket, Bulli Post Office, Thirroul and Austinmer Fuel, Coledale and Bulli
  • Cosy space to relax before and after the wedding we attended on the beautiful coal coast. A great spot amongst the bush land on the Illawarra escapement, as described and a thoughtful touch by Rebecca to leave us an umbrella which came in handy on a wet weekend. Very comfy bed and strong hot shower. Thanks again!

    Dan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place nestled up in the hillside above Wombarra beach!! Very clean & cosy place to stay.

    Kevin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Great and stylish spot where you feel the bush vibrating as well as you can relax and feel safe. Very welcoming host doing all for your comfort and let you your privacy in one. Highly recommended!

    The Top Room is a motel style room, attached to the house with easy access and a private entrance & ensuite. Two larger studio apartments are available downstairs. Key can be left in a key safe. Set on a bush surrounded small average, we are next to Bald Hill and The Royal National Park and a 5 min drive to Stanwell Park Beach, The Tops Centre, wedding venues and Helensburgh. Shops, train and facilities are a 5 minute drive away. This room is closest to the road. Breakfast is not provided.
    The Top Room is a motel style room with a double bed, en-suite bathroom and basic food preparation facilities - microwave, tea and coffee facilities, toaster, bar fridge. It is attached to the residential house but has a separate entrance. The room is closest to the road, with some associated traffic noise. There are 2 more larger rooms available downstairs. Both of these have a kitchenette with a sink. The room has air conditioning and a parking space next to the room.
    YellotailStay - Stanwell Tops is set in a small acreage of stunning rolling lawns with a sandstone surrounded dam and encompassed by bush. We are a 1 minute walk to world famous Bald Hill Lookout, over the road from The Royal National Park and a 5 minute drive to Stanwell Park Beach. Bald Hill is a haven for hang gliders and paragliders and the view of the Northern Illawarra, the escarpment and The Sea Cliff Bridge is rated by many, as one of the best in the world. The start of the Royal National Park Coast Walk is 1 km away just past the iconic Otford Apple Pie Shop but there are numerous other bush walks near by, with a couple running next to the property. The property is close to numerous wedding venues including those at Audley, Lillyvale and Stanwell Tops. Coffee shops, restaurants and supermarkets are a short but spectacular drive to the south at Wombarra and Austinmere or a 5 minute drive north to Helensburgh. The Symbio Zoo is 5 minutes away with a golf driving range and putt putt across the road. The Boomerang Golf Course is a further 5 minutes drive. Horse riding at Otford Valley Farm is 5 minutes drive with the main trail running along our boundary. Cycling and motor bike riding are popular pursuits in the area and there are many rainforest walks, 10-20 minutes to the north and spectacular escarpment walks to the south. Rock fishing venues are all around, the orchard outlets of Darks Forrest are 10 minutes drive and the beaches of the Royal National Park and Audley are a half hour along Lady Wakehurst Drive. The Govinda Valley Retreat with its yoga and meditation centre and vegetarian cooking classes is just along the Hacking River and The Hindu, Sri Venkateswara Temple, a 3 minute drive. Trains from Central or Sutherland can take you to Otford Station which is about a 1.5km gentle downhill walk from YellotailStay. If the walk from the station is too much we are happy to arrange a pickup if we are available. Bald Hill and the beautiful Otford Valley really are the centre of the universe, but a long way from the stress of every day living.
  • We really liked Kathryn's place. The location is so lovely, just across the road from a lookout over the ocean, and a nice scenic drive to Wollongong. The room was very clean and well appointed with everything you could need. Thanks!

    Bryn2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryn is a lovely and very helpful host. The place is a perfect location if you are attending a function at Tumbling waters. Quiet , clean, comfortable bed and beautifully located next to the Baldhill lookout

    Teddy2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryns place was wonderful and a lovely fully serviced double room. Lots of lovely warm touches in a secluded bush setting. We would love to make it back one day.

    Rachael2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay before/after the Royal coast track, take a shower and relax. The host was so great to pick us up from the track and bring us to the home!! Stanwell tops lookout is in 5 minute walk. However, there is NO way down to the Stanwell Park station and beach! One should go down to Otford station.

    Ilya2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I loved this cosy little place which was nestled in a natural bush land setting right across the road from Bald Hill Observation Deck which overlooked the ocean. It was wonderful to be able to walk across the road for fish and chips and sit and watch the hang gliders over the ocean. A great location, wonderful hosts and a very comfortable place to call 'home' for a few days. I would definitely stay again and would recommend without hesitation.

    Kim2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryn and Carl's room was a great location near Royal National Park when our camping plans got rained out at the last minute. Kathryn was very helpful and communicative with check-in. The room was sparkling clean, easily accessed, and came with great amenities for a short stay. Perfect for quick access to the park and walks, but also shops and cafes nearby. We'd love to return, and would highly recommend it to other travellers!

  • Wendy’s place is easy to find and perfect for a weekend away. The place is not huge but for those who have a budget and can walk down the road for the views and beach have the bonus of a place that is comfortable and modern. The special touches of providing guests preferences and Wendy communicating at the highest level add to a memorable weekend. We will be back especially if another wedding in town. Thanks Wendy and Mark

    Lovely self contained studio located in the incredible Stanwell Park. Guests will have their own kitchenette, bathroom, two seater couch, TV, wardrobe , queen size bed and bench seating for meals. Kitchenette equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, microwave and toaster. All linen provided. Having stayed in numerous airbnbs in the past what is great about our studio is the fact that it has no personal belongings so it truly does feel like a serviced apartment.
    In Stanwell Park there are endless outdoor activities, including surfing, fishing and swimming. If bush walking is your thing, there is plenty of local tracks to explore. The Royal National Park is only a five minute drive offering some of Australia's best walking tracks. Visit Bald Hill and watch the hang gliders take off while enjoying views all the way to Wollongong. Take a stroll along Seacliff bridge and enjoy the breathe taking scenery of the Northern Illawarra coast line. **Please note to manage guests expectations, bathroom is oldish and unrenovated**
    This pristine location at Stanwell Park Beach is ideal for families with a large reserve for picnicking and is located right on the beach. Surrounded by bushland, this proves popular for barbecues; and Sydneysiders for day trips.
  • Great place to stay while keeping busy in the surrounding areas! Would definitely stay again.

    Leo2020-01-05T00:00:00Z

  • Thanks again Kirra and Jase for a fantastic stay. We had a lovely time in your beautiful home with the best views! This was our first airbnb experience, so you have set the bar high for others in terms of the house, the views, location and your hospitality. We also appreciated your regular and helpful communication up to and during our stay. There was plenty of space for our family of four and we were especially impressed with having all of our meals and nights out on the deck overlooking the spectacular coast and escarpment. There were so many nearby attractions to visit on foot, by car and by train. Only a short walk to the secluded beach and ocean pool, as well as being close to the fantastic Scarborough Hotel, as well as the Bowlo. We very much readily recommend anyone to stay at your place and would love to visit again.

    YellowtailStay is next to Bald Hill & The Royal National Park & 5 min drive to Stanwell Park Beach, wedding venues, The Tops Conference Centre & Helensburgh. The Courtyard Room is a downstairs studio apartment with queen bed & a double sofa bed in the same room. We have 2 other rooms available. Set on a bush surrounded small acreage, shops & train are a 5 minute drive away. It has a private, separate entrance, kitchenette & bathroom. Key can be left in a key safe. NB. Breakfast is not provided.
    The Courtyard Room is located downstairs from the residence with its own private access, a cool courtyard and a large sunny deck. Outside the room is a grassed BBQ (wood and gas) and picnic area. This space has 3 areas; main bed/living room, kitchenette and bathroom. This studio apartment is a large bed/lounge room with a separate kitchenette and separate modern bathroom. It features a queens sized bed, 'click clack' sofa bed and could accommodate up to 2 adults plus 1 or 2 children. Towels and bed linen are supplied. Tea and coffee facilities are also supplied. The main area has the TV and DVD player. The apartment is air-conditioning with comfortable lounge chairs, and small dinning area. The kitchenette has small fridge, sink, microwave, cooktop, toaster, crockery, cutlery and basic cooking equipment. More than enough facilities to self cater. Outside is a cool shaded courtyard area with a BBQ and a huge rolling backyard.
    YellowtailStay - Stanwell Tops is set in a small acreage of stunning rolling lawns with a sandstone surrounded dam and encompassed by bush. We are a 1 minute walk to world famous Bald Hill Lookout, over the road from The Royal National Park and a 5 minute drive to Stanwell Park Beach. Bald Hill is a haven for hang gliders and paragliders and the view of the Northern Illawarra, the escarpment and The Sea Cliff Bridge is rated by many, as one of the best in the world. The start of the Royal National Park Coast Walk is 1 km away just past the iconic Otford Apple Pie Shop but there are numerous other bush walks near by, with a couple running next to the property. The property is close to numerous wedding venues including those at Audley, Lillyvale and Stanwell Tops. Coffee shops, restaurants and supermarkets are a short but spectacular drive to the south at Wombarra and Austinmere or a 5 minute drive north to Helensburgh. The Symbio Zoo is 5 minutes away with a golf driving range and putt putt across the road. The Boomerang Golf Course is a further 5 minutes drive. Horse riding at Otford Valley Farm is 5 minutes drive with the main trail running along our boundary. Cycling and motor bike riding are popular pursuits in the area and there are many rainforest walks, 10-20 minutes to the north and spectacular escarpment walks to the south. Rock fishing venues are all around, the orchard outlets of Darks Forrest are 10 minutes drive and the beaches of the Royal National Park and Audley are a half hour along Lady Wakehurst Drive. The Govinda Valley Retreat with its yoga and meditation centre and vegetarian cooking classes is just along the Hacking River and The Hindu, Sri Venkateswara Temple, a 3 minute drive. Trains from Central or Sutherland can take you to Otford Station which is about a 1.8km walk from YellowtailStay. If the walk from the station is too much we are happy to arrange a pickup if we are available. You really need a car if you are going to stay here as shops and beach are generally inaccessible, though there is now an irregular bus service from Helensburgh Station - Rote 15. Bald Hill and the beautiful Otford Valley really are the centre of the universe, but a long way from the stress of every day living.
  • A lovely, sweet little guest suite with gorgeous decorations, nestled amongst the trees. Very comfortable and well equipped, Kathryn is a great host. Highly recommended!

    Ruth2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We were extremely happy with our stay at Yellowtails. Kathryn was really flexible with our arrival time considering we needed to arrive in the middle of the night. She was friendly and approachable, and always quick to respond. All essentials were provided, and the room was clean and fresh smelling as we walked in. The gardens are nothing short of magical! It was close by the venue of a wedding we needed to attend, Tumbling Waters Retreat. All in all, it was the perfect, relaxing get away. Thank you, Kathryn!

  • What a wonderful place to enjoy this beautiful pocket of coastland. We had a great time at Kathryn's place, lovely furnishings, some nice personal touches, minutes from great beaches, yet you can sit on the deck amongst the trees and feel like you're in the bush. Such a great place!

    Leah2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Kristen2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryn’s place was wonderful with an outdoor area amongst the Australian bush, feeling nature all around. The room was big enough and cool during a very hot summer day. Kathryn was an outstanding host providing everything we needed and more. We felt at home away from home and enjoyed the area as it was very close to beach, Symbio and other sights. We highly recommend Kathryn’s home and hospitality. Thanks again

    Peter2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it there. The location is great. One of the best features of the house is a large living area with water views. Parrots came onto the balcony while we were there, which was an added bonus. It is also nice to be surrounded by greenery. We also really enjoyed sitting on the nicely grassed area overlooking the creek. While we did not meet the hosts we found it very easy to communicate with them, and found them to be very flexible.

  • Charlottes house is really something special in the area. The home is what I would call “industrial chic” and Charlotte has made an effort to think of little things to make you feel at home. The welcome wine, muesli yoghurt and berries for breakfast was lovely, as were the fresh flowers and great Bluetooth speakers and nice towels, bedding and soaps etc. it is in a great spot, about a 5 min walk to sharkies beach and only 3 min to two great cafes and a fine wine shop. Thirroul is about a 5-10 min drive. I thoroughly enjoyed my mini night away at Jenga house and will definitely be back!

    We have loved our experience so much interacting with the Air BNB community through our property in Darlinghurst that we have decided to open up our own home to Air BNB guests in Coledale, a seaside village South of Sydney and North of Wollongong.
    The apartment (which we have named Frog Hollow) is newly renovated and has a new large bathroom with a gorgeous bath and rain water shower, a dedicated bedroom with queen sized luxurious bed looking towards the ocean, a combined living area with all the mod cons (music system and smart TV, Netflix, DVD etc) facing the escarpment and a new kitchenette with microwave, and assorted electrical goods (Frying pan , kettle, toaster, sandwich maker, two burner hotplate etc.) . It also contains a decent sized fridge and for a longer stay your own combined washing machine dryer. The name Frog Hollow reflects some of the inhabitants on our property that we have encouraged to set up home who depending upon the season and the weather are able to provide a cacophony of magical background sounds on many evenings. This apartment is small and cozy but very well appointed and is set up as being best suited to those looking for a romantic getaway as a couple although there is also a trundle which would accommodate a child comfortably. We supply all your linen (including beach towels) simple toiletries and a combination of simple breakfast items . Your kitchen contains all the simple condiments you require as well as a few items to ensure that no matter what time you arrive you were able to have a snack …supported by a few surprises awaiting you in your fridge. Welcome to Frog Hollow – we hope you enjoy your stay.
    We are 200 mts from Coledale beach (which is a fully patrolled beach from the start of the September school holidays till the end of the April school holidays) and a short walk (which we do every day with our dogs) to Sharky's beach which is an off leash dog friendly beach. Coledale is a beautiful beach side village located 18 klms north of the Wollongong Central Business district and one hours south of the Sydney CBD accessed by the spectacular Grand Pacific Drive via the stunning Sea Cliff Bridge. It has an eclectic, welcoming and warm community largely containing people with shared values of love and respect of the environment within which we are lucky enough to live. All the essentials are within walking distance i.e. a well-equipped general store / newsagent, a community loved R.S.L. which provides lunches and dinners over weekends, a couple of wonderful and loved restaurants/ cafes a small home wares store a fish and chips shop , a beautician and a well-stocked bottle shop. A longer walk away is the New Headland hotel which has breakfast lunch and dinner seven day a week (and a courtesy bus to make sure you get home safe :) :) A full selection of dining options also exist in nearby Austinmer and Thirroul, across a number of cuisines . Coledale Beach is bordered north and south by rocky outcrops that protect the beach from the worst of the weather, as well as offering excellent fishing spots. The beach is a great surfing spot, with the right conditions offering nice right and left hand breaks. Coledale Beach is a great location to enjoy the beach, swim, surf, fish, and dive or just sit back, enjoy the views and sound of the surf. Regular visits by dolphins playing just off the beach and close views of migrating humpback and southern right whales just add to the experience. The other local centres of Austinmer, Thirroul, Wombarra, Scarbarough , Stanwell Park and Bulli are great to swim, surf, shop, eat, drink or browse amongst the galleries and boutiques.
  • We had a great stay at Sharon and Mal’s. Perfect location - we loved Coledale! Great tips for local things to do - we went to Earth and co cafe which was lovely and also had fish and chips which we took down to the beach! The place was perfect for our stay and they accommodated our baby too with a cot. We had privacy but also felt we could contact the hosts if needed. Would recommended- thanks for a great stay! X

    Emily2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful! What a beautiful location. The beach is only a few minutes walk and local cafes are only a little further. The view of the ocean as you walk is spectacular too! Communication was excellent. Sharon met us at our time of arrival and greeted us and showed us the accommodation and gave us a few tips of things to do. She provided a portacot for our little bub. Which made packing the car that much easier. We felt very welcomed and at home. The kitchen window looks out to the ocean and the bath tub is luxurious! As parents to a very small baby we couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place :)

    Elise2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to enjoy and relax. A fantastic couple of host. Well worth a booking

    Owen2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This little gem is was just perfect! It has everything we needed and some unexpected extras which was just lovely. Very clean , walking distance to the beach and shops and we couldn't have asked for better. Would definitely recommend staying at Sharon and Mel's

    Trish2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon and Mal are very nice and their place is beautiful and comfortable

    Dalila2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon and Mal are awesome hosts and lovely people! Always so accommodating and friendly. We were picked up from the train station and dropped off at the end of our stay. They were always happy to drive us to the supermarket in Thirroul for supplies and made sure we had everything we needed and felt settled in. Wonderful hosts I would definitely recommend. Coledale is very relaxing spot by the sea. The house is about 10 min walk to cafes, and about 30 min walk to the Headland Hotel for very nice lunches and dinners with beautiful view. The Scarborough Hotel is also about 30 min walk (a bit more up hill though), which is very popular for lunches with awesome coastal views by the sea (you will need to book though).

  • Had a great time, thanks Mal & Sharon

    Damien2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Frog Hollow! The house is in an awesome location with gorgeous views of the water from the bedroom & kitchen. We loved that the beaches were a short walk & the dog friendly beach is great. They have stocked the suite with the necessities plus more :) Thanks so much Sharon & Mal, we will book again next time we are in the area!

  • If you are looking for a calm and beautiful place for a weekend getaway - pay a visit to Stanwell Park and stay with Anne! The cottage has more than you need for your comfortable stay, is very close to the beach and easy reachable if you come by public transport. A bit about Stanwell Park - there’s no grocery store, therefore you have to get something on the way if you’re coming by public transport. Thank you Anne for an amazing stay!

    Austėja2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Anne's place is a beautiful space to stay and relax. The space is quiet, private and filled with lots of thoughtful touches that made our stay lovely. The accomodation is very close to the beach, a short five min walk. Anne was available if we needed anything during our stay, but otherwise gave us lots of privacy which we really appreciated. We will definitely be back! Vanessa and Aidan

    Vanessa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is perfectly situated with a short walk to a beautiful beach. There are a lot of nice beaches and rock pools along the coast and the Royal National Park is just round the corner. You can enjoy a train ride to Sydney city directly from Stanwell Park and do not need to worry about traffic etc. Anne is a very likeable person ready to answer any questions.

    Petra2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Anne’s place is located conveniently for the beach, tennis courts, the local pizza place and the cafes. It was nice, comfortable and peaceful. The kitchen had all the amenities for cooking meals. Having a laundry is pretty handy for long stays. Free view tv worked very well.

    Priyanka2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for three nights to attend a wedding in Stanwell Tops. We had two young children with us. The beach and local cafes are within walking distance and pram friendly. Play equipment near the Beach Kiosk are incredible. Kids loved it. We had breaky at Loaf which has a great kids play area and caters for dietary requirements. Short drive to Symbio Wildlife Park and National Park Walks. Comfortable for a family of four with all cooking needs available. Great Bath and shower. My 18month old had fun opening and closing everything she could without access to things to break!

    Hannah2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The space was very clean and well decorated. Very spacious for a couples getaway. Anne was so welcoming and accommodating and gave really nice recommendations for nearby beaches and restaurants. Definitely recommend!

  • Such a beautiful escape from the city into nature. Rebekka has thought of every little thing you’d need to enjoy here, best place to create beautiful memories with your loved one or friends. My second time here in a month and definitely will be back. Not many places have made it on my repeat location list, this place is a must!! We roasted marshmallows by the campfire and enjoyed a bbq dinner all with a serene nature setting. Love everything about this glamping spot.

    Teresa2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most incredible stay. Such a magical spot and the tent is absolutely gorgeous. We’re so stoked!

    Milla2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my first glamping experience. And at the perfect location. Fell asleep to the sound of distant ocean waves. It was magic

    Jill2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful glamping spot. It’s large, comfortable and just had everything we needed. One of the nights we stayed it was pouring down with rain and windy but the tent stayed warm, cosy and dry. We couldn’t have picked a better spot for a romantic weekend.

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had a beautiful time at Bekka's place, Will definitely be going back, Better than we expected and the view was great, listening to the ocean 😁

    Jacque2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking to unwind for the weekend this is definitely a place to do it! The location is lush and the tent and setup is awesome! Not to mention Rebekka and her family are really responsive and accommodating. Would stay here again.

    Chantelle2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The camp is AMAZING! I was visiting a friend in Australia for 10 days and we decided to stay here one of the nights - it was hands down one of the most unique and best parts of my trip! We had all the amenities we needed and then some, and got to wake up to horses and a beautiful view. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting the greater Sydney area as a must-do. And Rebekka is the sweetest host!

    Shelby2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most amazing time, perfect location, so much to explore and see.! Nice to be in nature on a beautiful property. Rebekka had great recommendations on a local cafe and a hike as well :)
