A cute, cosy self-contained cabin cleverly fitted out to accommodate up to four with a double bed in an alcove downstairs and two mattresses on the carpeted floor of the loft which is accessed by a steep staircase - for the agile and stouthearted :)
This little cabin is in our back garden, quite close to our house but private enough with entry from a side gate into the garden. The cabin is fully self-contained with own bathroom and small kitchenette area with a fold-up table and chairs. There's a small fridge, small stove/oven appliance. (two hotplates on top), microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, pots and pans, utensils, crockery, cuttlery and glasses etc. There's enough there to self-cater to a basic standard for four people. Beds are made up and towels etc are provided. It's 7 minutes walk from Thirroul train station. An hour-and-a-quarter train ride to Sydney (Central) It's a 10 or 20 minute walk to beautiful beaches. 10 - 15 minutes walk to restaurants, bars, cafes and shops of Thirroul. The cabin is very small and open-plan. Suitable for a family with older children, or several adults for sleeping as there is a double bed in an alcove downstairs and two, three or four (maximum) single mattresses on the carpeted floor in the loft (mezzanine style.) Due to the nature of the loft stairs and windows, the cabin is unsuitable for children under six and close supervision would be required for children of any age. There is not a great deal of room downstairs, so it would be crowded as a place to stay during the day for more than a couple of people. The downstairs bed converts into a small lounge area, otherwise there is no sitting area, just the bed. The floorplan in the pictures gives an idea of size and layout. The stairs to the loft are narrow and, at this stage have a single railing making them unsuitable for small children and the less agile. The neighbourhood is quiet and leafy. Wifi is available and easy street parking.
Our neighbourhood is quiet and leafy and very safe. It's an easy walk to shops and cafes, a slightly longer walk to the beach.
  • Really cute little self contained space. Would happily go again to it interesting touches

  • We had a magical stay at Kathryn’s cubby house. It is the perfect weekend getaway. So cosy and quaint we felt like we were in a fairytale

    Kate2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, cosy space with everything you might need for a short or even a long stay, including breakfast items. We really enjoyed our far too brief night in the delightful, well-planned and well-equipped little house. Thirroul’s a vibrant place, and the cubby house is in walking distance from shops, quirky shops, cafes, train station and the beach. We hope to have the chance to stay longer another time. Hosts are nearby but very happy to leave you in peace as you prefer. Check in was easy - a relief when we arrived hours later than planned - and the hosts are communicative and flexible. Thanks again for making our fleeting trip for a work event so easy.

    Julie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • Really enjoyed our stay, clean and cosy. Thanks!

    Ieuan2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • 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!!!!!!

    Nikki2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay! Absolutely beautiful!

    Keira2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Cute little one-bedroom cottage located within walking distance to beach, train, shops and cafes in Thirroul. Detached from the main house, the cottage overlooks a heritage-listed fig tree. Perfect for overnight or extended stay.
    The cottage can sleep up to four adults. It has a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living area.
    Thirroul is part of the Coal Coast, a thriving little hub of creative activity, yoga, surfing, and plenty of cafes. If you are coming to Thirroul for live show, we are about 15 minutes walk from Anita's Theatre and Beaches Hotel, and it's a short drive to the Heritage Hotel.
  • Top place. Will visit again.

    Kathy2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The White Cottage is a lovely place to stay. It is really cosy and has everything you need. We stayed there one night, before we went to the airport. Convenient location with nice restaurants and cafes down the road. The sleeping sofa was also very comfy. The communication was very easy. Thanks John and Alisa.

    Anne2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage has ample space and a lovely charm. The rooms are large, spacious and feature modern as well as antique furnishings. The cleanliness was to a high standard as the linen was freshly washed. We travelled with our car and trailer, John was accommodating in allowing us to park both in his easily-accessible driveway. There were also lovely touches set aside for our stay, such as chocolate and breakfast offerings. I would definitely recommend this beautiful house to all travellers.

    Venessa2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

    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.

    Sarah2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    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!!!

  • 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!

  • 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!

    Rustic, open plan, big & bright place by the sea. On the main road & 10 minute walk to beautiful, patrolled, Scarborough Wombarra beach. A converted shopfront w/loft bedrooms. There are board games, books to read & windows to stare out of. Only basic cooking facilities (toaster, kettle & electric wok). No outdoor area but great nature & picnic spots nearby.
    An old brick shopfront has been converted into a fun living space. Open plan with loft bedrooms up an old railway signal box staircase. Used recently as an artists studio & home.
  • Really fun place to stay, you'll keep looking at all the cool decorations! Very unique.

    The space comprises one bedroom, a large bathroom and very large, fully equipped kitchen. The outlook to the rear of the property is a view of trees, with ocean glimpses through the foliage. There's a private track to the beach.

  • Great spot. Perfect for a short or longer holiday. Short walk to the beach and local pub & bistro. Bigger town with shops a few minutes drive down the road. Overlooking a bush with of a bit of a view of the mountains. Has all you need on holidays including washing machine and dryer. Mark also provided some essentials ( milk, eggs etc) which was a nice touch.

  • If you love the sound of the ocean well this is the place to stay. Mark’s place is a fully self contained apartment with great kitchen, use of the laundry, and a spacious bedroom and bathroom. Special touches include breakfast items, which was a welcome surprise and great internet. We had a very comfortable 9 night stay as my daughter and I explored the coastline and Sydney. The area is absolutely stunning. Mark’s place was a home away from home to retreat back to after a busy day exploring. Thanks Mark, Mardi and Clare.

    Robyn2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • 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 :)

    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
  • Fantastic unique stay. Very quiet and private. Nice little touch's inside. Very clean and great value for money

    Ursula2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Great cosy studio - own entrance, air conditioning (incl heating) beautiful garden to enjoy, one minute from train station, cafes, restaurants, library, shopping. 10 minute walk to beach! I have implemented strict health protocols in this current crisis - everything is wiped down with antiseptic after each guest,bedding disinfected and hand sanitiser and sopa is available. Plus of course there is toilet paper! No breakfast or shower products will be provided during this crisis.
    The studio is downstairs from my place with its own entrance. It has small kitchenette with fridge and microwave - but as you are a minutes walk from cafes and restaurants its unlikely you'll need to cook!
    Great seaside village - 20 minutes drive from Wollongong and an hour from Sydney Airport.
  • Great place to stay in Thiroull close to cafes and restaurants Room is clean and bed very comfortable, It has a small kitchen and Francesca supplied some stuff for breakfast I will stay again

    John2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Soak up some of the modern and vintage charm of the kokomo retro caravan featuring all the mod cons including coffee pod machine, microwave oven and new comfy queen bed. The magnificent escarpment behind and views over the ocean in front. The toilet and shower are nearby and are shared with other campers.
    tastefully decorated , modern with a retro feel. Situated on a large private estate.
  • Fantastic spot and set up. Going back for sure !

    Paul2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • John's caravan was relaxing and enjoyable. While there was a mix of tents, glamping on the property it was not crowded and there was plenty of room to move around freely. It was a hot day when we arrived and the camper van was well set up with a comfy bed and various accessories like a couch and microwave. Outdoors there was a table and chairs to allow us to relax in the shade. Nice getaway and you can hear the waves from the ocean...very relaxing and peaceful.

    Romina2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful place. The caravan, the view, the whole property, are all gorgeous, and John is a fantastic host. Bonus points for the glammed up female bathroom (fairy lights and a view!). Simply a wonderful place overall. My partner and I both agreed that this was the best New Year's Eve either of us can remember - and we will absolutely be back!

    Anna2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the caravan! The area is great, close (2 min drive) to the beach and shops, the caravan is super cool and retro and John was lovely and made us feel very welcome. We have already re-booked!

    Cameron2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend staying here at john’s caravan. Such a great location, the animals were beautiful, the caravan itself was such a good experience and John and his family were so friendly and accommodating

    Paulene2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • John’s place is relaxing and exactly as described. There’s a nice fire pit and horses roaming free which adds a unique touch. There’s other campers staying on the property which is totally fine. I would stay again.

    Sanjana2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

The unit has one queen size bed located up on a mezzanine level and is suitable for two people only.

    I am close to a lovely beach that is patrolled in summer. It is great for swimming, surfing, fishing or relaxing. There are also great bush walks close by, I have maps and information if you are interested. Not far from here we have cycle ways that follow the coast for many kilometres. You can just enjoying our beautiful coast and bush or great shopping not too far away. The train station is 300 meters away and local bus services at the door. There are places close by that provide meals. The closest supermarket is 10 min drive away.

    Wombarra, 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!

    Gabrielle2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We loved spending the day in Marty house. The place was very clean with fantastic beach view. Highly recommends

    Moazzam2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • 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

  • This was by far the best AirBnB I have ever stayed in. Alison the host went above and beyond to help us with everything we needed for a comfortable and joyful stay. We were in the area for a wedding and it was the perfect retreat. Very comfortable, clean, stylish and homey. Also in a very convenient location in walking distance to the hub of this little community. I would highly recommend.

We loved our stay and will certainly be returning. Oh and Alison is divine and will make sure your stay is as smooth as possible!

    Sarah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Darren2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Alison’s place. It is an easy walk to the train station, cafes and the beach but you may need a car to get to a supermarket. The place was modern and clean with fast WiFi and a firm bed that we found comfortable. Alison was a lovely host who communicated well with nothing being too much trouble for her, including providing bread, milk and chocolate.

    Nicholas2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Immaculate apartment in a wonderful location. The space is lovely and had everything you need for a very relaxed stay, including some good coffee and breakfast options a 2 minute walk away.

The apartment is in a beautiful spot on the coast, with some stunning beaches and coastal walks nearby. We would love to come back some time.

    Our home is a renovated apartment perched amongst the trees and birds on the Illawarra escarpment, designed around our mixed Latin American and Australian-Bush roots. You will be sharing the space with us and our son, Oliver. The room is small but comfortable and is also our library.
    The room has a queen size bed, a large window looking onto a bush reserve (and a flowing creek on rainy days), and more books than you could read in a year.
    We're towards the end of a cul-de-sac only 50 metres from Illawarra Escarpment Conservation area. There's a fabulous track heading up the hill that connects to local walking/MTB tracks. There are many kids in the neighbourhood and you'll often see them playing in the street. We're also next to a big, flat park and reserve, so there's space for a game of frisbee or cricket, etc.
  • This is one of the nicest Air Bnb's I've ever stayed in, and the best value too. Natalia and Ben's house opens out into forest, with a huge terrace overlooking the trees. It's as though you're staying in a tree house. They made me feel instantly comfortable, inviting me along to the beach and lending me flip flops and a hat (I wasn't well prepared). I also got lost on a solo bush walk and Ben very kindly came to save me - that's some above-and-beyond Air bnb hosting. Also their son Oliver is a legend. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable in your home, Ben and Natalia. I hope we cross paths again soon.

    Alice2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend. Comfortable space and friendly hosts. Thanks again for everything!

    Andrei2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Steve2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Best AirBnB ever! Super lovely house with heaps of little nooks to curl up with a book. Really enjoyed some chilled chats with Natalia and Ben, but also felt very comfortable to just retreat into my own silence/space. Super stunning nature surrounding the place too.

    Chloe2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Travel will draw you to adventure and culture. This family provide a home of many talking points with a welcoming smile. The location is amongst the trees, the check in was effortless and we had the house to ourselves the majority of the time. Thank you for having us, we loved our stay.

    Diana2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great beautiful place, great intelligent people! Thanks heaps!

    Alexander2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Natalia and Ben are what AirBNB is about - so friendly and welcoming and the bed was sooo cosy! They were very upfront about the fact that it is a bedroom in their family home, and that you share a bathroom, but I never once had to wait for the bathroom. I definitely recommend a stay.

    Ellen2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful and unique space in a great location. I felt immediately at home with Ben and Natalia; spending plenty of time talking and drinking tea. They were most accommodating, it is easy to see why they're super hosts. Outstanding value for money, even in a shared environment. I'll be happy to stay again.

The studio includes combined sleeping/living area with king bed, cosy bathroom, basic kitchenette/laundry area, complimentary tea & coffee, and lovely sheltered balcony complete with table and bbq.

Access is via a staircase to the left of the house. It's quite long, as we're on a steep slope, but the stairs are equipped with sensor lights for after-dark. Ample parking is available on the street. Decompress from your everyday and enjoy the simplicity of the studio, with the surrounding trees, birds, and dappled light the real features of this space.
    Bulli and its surrounding suburbs really have everything you'd want on a getaway. Beaches, bush walks, quaint shops and cafes, plus a thriving arts scene are some of the highlights, and the best thing is that everything is so close by. - Stop by Franks Wild Years in Thirroul for all your vinyl and vino needs - Check out local art & grab a coffee at Timbermill Studios, at the bottom of the hill - Get your sand, sun & surf fix at any of the several beaches close by - Take a walk to Bulli Markets on a Sunday, via a bush track just behind our place - Have a special dinner at South Sailor in Thirroul, followed by a drink at Jose Jones next door - Head further afield to beautiful Kiama or the Royal National Park, or take a day trip to the beautiful Southern Highlands

    The Joint is a self-contained studio located right in the hub of Thirroul. An architecturally-designed and award-winning dwelling, it's sustainably constructed and uses passive solar principles to maintain a comfortable temperature: smart, simple design that's a pleasure to experience. The Joint is set at the rear of our block with an active food garden providing privacy and a courtyard where you can unwind. Just a two minute walk from cafes, restaurants and shops and five minutes to the beach.
    Sleeps up to 3 people: one bedroom with built-in queen bed and a single day bed in the living room that can accomodate a third person. The eco design uses recycled hardwood timber, double glazing and a concrete slab to regulate temperature. Beautiful high windows look out to the escarpment, letting natural light flood in while maintaining privacy. It's smart design - and beautiful, too. In keeping with the building's ethos we've set it up with the sustainability in mind. Composting and recycling are encouraged, and you're welcome to use produce from our garden. We avoid single-use plastic, too. There's no TV but we do provide a speaker to connect to your devices. There's no laundry facilities but there is a laundromat in Thirroul.
    Take a two minute walk up the road to Finbox for great coffee, fresh pastries and surfboards. There's also an IGA, specialty food stores, gift shops and a post office within a stone's throw - plus a masseuse right next door to us if you fancy a massage! Thirroul Beach, saltwater pool and playground are five minutes walk.

    This space has a bedroom with queen size bed, bathroom, living room with single bed, adjoining kitchenette (accessed by separate outside door) with: microwave, toaster, fridge, kettle and utensils. There is a back deck with ocean glimpses/escarpment views. 20 minute drive from Wollongong/ I hour and 10 minutes from Sydney. We have a dog, Billie Jean, featured in photo 3. While it is fully self-contained space, it is a separated section of the main house, so there may be some house noise.
    There is a short cut to beach (4 min) - go to end of cul-de-sac and and through grassy verge to Sharkies - Coledale's popular surfing beach. As well as some noise from our side of house there can be train noise at night. Quiet space/neighborhood. Not suitable for parties or late noise. Generally cool and breezy.
    There are numerous cafes, restaurants, beaches and markets within a short distance, as well as a range of supermarkets. Wollongong is a twenty minute drive away and has an ever increasingly vibrant night life. The Sea Cliff Bridge and Royal National Park are a twenty minute drive north.
  • This lovely space is charming and cosy with a separate lounge that was very sweetly decorated. There are French doors out to a private deck with glimpses of the ocean. Great location close to the beach. Very homely feel.

  • We enjoyed our stay very much. The location in Coledale, a walking distance from the beach is excellent. Jane was available but never imposing her presence. Especially appreciated were the little extra somethings she left for us in the kitchen.

    Micha2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Jane’s place is awesome! It’s artistic, unique, and right by the beach. The shared kitchen was great and the beds were comfortable. We’d definitely stay there again if we’re in the area.

    Lilly2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely space near the beach, gorgeous flowers in the home

    Beth2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Jane’s place in Coledale. It was everything we wanted. Great position - walking distance to beach and cafes. And comfortable and quiet. Jane is a fabulous host. We’d definitely come back.

    Deborah2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice accommodation with short walk to beach. Good amenities and comfy bed, plus lovely outlook from the balcony. Jane is a very hospitable host.

    Glenn2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • I really enjoyed my stay at Suzanna’s place! Spotless clean, great room, own bathroom and just one minute away from a great place. Would definitely recommend this place if you’re looking for some time to relax! Thanks! :)

    Katrin2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanne's room is cosy and comfortable. Everything needed is provided. Having its own bathroom is a great bonus. We only had a short stay but was ideal for a mini-break, did some great swimming and bushwalking in the surrounding areas

    Mimi2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money! Suzanne was quick to respond and was lovely to deal with.

    Hayden2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful 2-night stay. I would definitely recommend staying at Suzanne’s house. Their hospitality was wonderful and their house was lovely. Bonus...the view was spectacular!

    Casey2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Welcoming wonderful hosts who know a lot about their community and contribute greatly. Such an awesome vibe. We only stayed two nights in their lovely home but felt at ease straight away. Great suggestions offered by Suzanne for dinner and lunch locally and breakfast was help yourself with fresh chook eggs and numerous accompaniments. The position of their home is amazing. Surf beach right out front and dog friendly. We recommend staying with these guys they charge so little for what they offer so kindly.

    Megan2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely location, we had a wedding at the headlands hotel and it was easy to walk home at night. Very friendly hosts, great communication and easy check-in.

  • This place was amazing! Soo close to the water we would walk down and duck out feet in the water and then grab some coffee down the street before going back up to get ready for my wedding day. Plenty of parking for everyone and great location for photos 😍

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful part of our country. We visited for a wedding in Austinmer and the location was perfect. Great cafes, beaches and close to the train line for transfers to Sydney city and airport. Waking up to the view of the local park and ocean was a joy everyday. Thank you for sharing your space.

    Di2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This little place has everything you need. It’s a short walk to the beach, the shops are just around the corner. Also an easy walk from the train station. A lovely little yard to relax and the premises are clean, modern and private. A perfect little get away.

  • Gavin’s place is the perfect tiny house that has everything you need! The location was even better than we expected. So close to shops, restaurants, cafes, pub and a very short walk to the beach. Gavin is a fantastic host - checking in and out was really easy! 10/10

    Boyd2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place for a stay around Wollongong. My partner and I loved the location, so close to supermarkets and plenty of places to eat out, and the beach and pool are a 5 minute walk away. You will not find better in the area. Gavin is a great host and will be there to help in any way he can, and was really friendly and made us both feel at home immediately. The tiny home is spotless and really comfortable for two people. If this is available, I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Brilliant! Thanks again Gavin.

    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!

    Annalise2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to the beach, train station, restaurants, coffee shops, family-friendly activities and Wollongong. Interesting shops in Thirroul all within easy walk. You’ll love my place because of the views, and the location. The escarpment surrounds us and if feeling fit there is a walk up to the top where the views down the coast are awesome. Bike track all the way to Wollongong. Please contact me when you are on the way if you dont have directions.
    The house is new and the bedroom a sunny room with TV/DVD. Your bathroom is just outside of room.
    This is a quiet friendly neighbourhood, all new homes, a mixture of young and old.
  • Amber is a lovely host with some lovely pets all very friendly a great stay in a great location

  • Amber is a wonderful and thoughtful host and a beautiful person. Her home is stunning , yet cozy and all the essentials are provided for you, with a few thoughtful touches here and there. Her three dogs are just the cutest and make your stay that much more memorable. It really is a home away from home and the location is perfect, with the beaches, local stores and pubs close by and Wollongong just a 15-20 minute drive away. Will definitely be back for future stays :)

    Bernie2019-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This would have to be the most welcoming air bnb I have stayed Amber is a beautiful lady and her fur babies are amazing would definitely recommend staying here if you feel home sick the house is perfect and exactly what you need after travelling !!

    Preethi2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful modern property close to the sea and the towns of Thirroul and Bulli by foot and longer walks along the walk/cycle way. The room and separate bathroom are spacious with good linen and private. Amber is a warm hospitable host knowledgeable about the area and will make you feel at home -enjoy!

    Shona2018-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • My first stay at Amber's property was totally amazing - forget Marriott, Accor, Hilton or Starwood's, my first nor second visit could never meet any of these resort hotel provisions. Close to Sydney, even closer to the wonderful Illawarra/South Coast regions of NSW. The best Airbnb I've ever stayed in. Thanks so much Amber, I'm sure many more people will continue to stay at your place.
