The space

“If it's a relaxing, beachy holiday you're after on one of the best locations on the south coast - this is the place” - David.

Make yourself at home with exclusive use of this brand new oceanfront residence. Ideally located within walking distance of both Thirroul and Austinmer townships, guests are just a stroll away from some of the Coal Coast's best beaches, parks and play areas, cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques.

This two-storey property features an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area, with the glistening Pacific Ocean on show from every vantage point. Cast eyes to the north to take in views of Austinmer's headlands and onwards to the distant cliffs of the Royal National Park. To the south, see the swimmers at Thirroul Beach, the iconic pump house, Sandon Point surf break, the Wollongong cityscape, and the Five Islands Nature Reserve. Fling open the windows to welcome the NE breeze in summer and create a cool retreat after a day at the beach, or get cosy in the cooler months with the touch of a button thanks to the gas fireplace. The full-size kitchen offers a gas stove and oven, side-by-side fridge and ice dispensing freezer, dishwasher, cutlery, cookware, dinnerware, glassware and more. Each of the two living areas is equipped with a flatscreen television and Apple TV console, and wifi is available to ensure complete connectivity. For those favouring down time over screen time, a freestanding bath tub and mini-library encourage rest and relaxation.

Guests are invited to watch the sun rise over the sea from the comfort of a king-size bed in the master suite, complete with ensuite bathroom featuring a decadent double shower. A second bedroom offers a double bed, and a third bedroom includes one set of bunk beds. The second and third bedrooms also offer built-in wardrobes. Wrap-around decks on the upper and lower floors allow guests to soak up this truly sublime location, and offer a front row seat for watching dolphins and humpback whales as they frolic off the coast. Outdoor lounges, a small level yard with swing set and cubby house, and Weber barbecue all provide ample opportunities for holiday memories to be made.

Where you’ll be

Austinmer, New South Wales, Australia

Just an hour and a half south of Sydney and 15 minutes north of Wollongong, Austinmer is a leafy and laid-back coastal gem on the Coal Coast. Once a sleepy seaside suburb, Austinmer and the neighbouring town of Thirroul now boast a thriving and ever-growing collection of cafes, bars, restaurants, and boutiques. Positioned at the peak of Kennedy's Hill that links the two suburbs, Cove Beach House is well within walking distance of both Thirroul and Austinmer's main attractions.

Meander down the hill to find Austi Beach Cafe (think A+ coffee, a la carte beachside dining, and house-made gelato) and Shelley's diner (great burgers, fish and chips, fresh juices, and more), or continue along the winding cliffs to find Headlands Hotel - offering a bar and bistro, regular live entertainment, and exceptional views. For a more authentic local experience, veer left at Moore Street to find the newly established Moore Street General cafe, along with a host of eclectic boutiques tucked in amongst the leafy cottages. Alternatively, just a few minutes south your feet will deliver you to organic coffee heaven in the form of Bread, Espresso & - boasting sweet treats and caffeinated drinks so loved that patrons are often seen spilling out into the street during busy periods in order to get their fix. Further along Lawrence Hargrave Drive foodies can herald the call of the newly opened South Sailor, slinger of super-chic cocktails and fresh seafood, or head next door to Jose Jones Bar and Restaurant, loved for its take on internationally-inspired meals created using produce from the local area.

Visitors also have a smorgasbord of stunning beaches to choose from, with almost every suburb to the north and south boasting prime stretches of sand and ocean pools. The property's namesake comes from a quiet stretch of sand and rock pools below the cliffs of Kennedy's Hill, accessible by a disguised dirt track around 50 metres north of the home. Easily missed by tourists, this tricky track rewards persistence with a more secluded beach setting. Alternatively, the cove can also be reached by walking south along the sand from Austinmer Pool at low tide... but it's less fun that way.
