  • Belinda was amazing! She went absolutely above and beyond with homely touches, chocolate, yoghurts and coconut oil in the bathroom etc. to make our stay feel more comfortable. The view was phenomenal - especially the sunrise/sunset!!! Unbeatable.

    Chloe2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic and lovely home. The place has everything you need and more. The tranquility of the home is a perfect escape from the city. This is a clean, beautifully and thoughtfully designed home. Belinda is a friendly and helpful host and I'd definitely go back again.

    Clara2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing, very beautiful, clean, welcoming and comfortable place. We truly enjoyed our time.

    Darija2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very impressive place to stay if you want a quick getaway. Waking up to The water view is amazing!

  • One of the neatest places I’ve ever stayed! Close to train stations and local food shops. The hosts were very pleasant and ready to help with any questions we had!

    Trevor2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • It is an amazing place with a really beautiful view. This is a magical place to stay.

    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

    Hugh2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Annabel2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute little getaway and only a short walk to the heart of Thirroul, absolutely wonderful!!

    Niamh2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect little haven. A tiny house packed with everything you should ever need. Beyond quaint and tranquil, we couldn't have been more at home in this tiny slice of paradise!!

    Joanne2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Professional and enjoyable!

    Damien2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kathy's place is small and cosy. It's in a great location near all the shops in Thirroul, and a short walk from the train station. Kathy left some very nice treats for us. We loved that we could bring our dog!

    Julie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cubby house is a great little space. Lovely touches throughout and just a nice and relaxing little getaway place. Hosts are easy to communicate with and flexible. A great stay!

    Fantastic private studio flat with a beautiful pool. You have a private entrance (accessed by steps at the side of the house) to come and go as you please. Cronulla beach and the Royal National Park are incredibly close, for you to explore. Great double bedroom with an open plan lounge room, and a well provisioned kitchenette. Additionally, a barbecue is available to get you into the Australian spirit. This property really is a gem and for a couple, just perfect. As you can see from the photos, the place is just beautiful and has that Balinese touch. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe, and the retreat is nestled on the edge of the Royal National Park. We have some great restaurants in the surrounding areas. The train station is a 15 minute walk from the house. From the train station you can get into the city and down to the beach very easily. Check in/out times are very flexible unless new guests are arriving on the same day as departing guests. In that case, we ask that departing guests vacate by 10:00am, and that new guests arrive after 2:00pm (to allow for room refurbishment). Treat this as your very own private retreat.
  • I can't say enough about this place. The attention to detail is amazing in every respect- From spotless cleaning to nice welcoming touches like fresh fruit, bread and cereal. This place is awesome and even more picturesque than the photos on airbnb. Just book and make some new friends. You'll be in great hands...

    Dan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Those who book Maryellen and John's accommodation book a piece in paradise right away. The apartment has everything you need for a short stay. You can even watch German-language films on Netflix. The terrace with pool rises high in the tree tops in the adjacent forest. Cockatoos visited us every evening and we fed them bread. The chirping of birds and the chirping of the cicadas was wonderful. The adjacent national park also invites you to hike. Only 15 minutes by car you can reach Cronulla Beach with a very nice and clean beach. John and Maryellen are extremely nice hosts. We can only highly recommend the accommodation.

    Franz & Lisa2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time staying at John and Maryellen’s place - great place to stay, very comfortable and spacious. There are plenty of cooking items if needed and close to the station for getting Sydney. Thank you for a lovely stay again

    Keren2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was excellent

    Susan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay. Bush out the back, a place to yourselves. A nice area and a quiet place to get away.

    Sabrina2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tranquility. Peace. Outstanding hosts. Sparkling clean. An oasis- minutes from the national park, yet still accessible to the city and surrounds. This place is a gem thanks to attention to detail from Maryellen and John!

    Dijon2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Johns and Maryellens Apartment is a wonderful place to stay outside the city, but to reach it within 45 minutes We enjoyed our time very much and hope to return one day to the great hospitality of John and Maryellen. Thank you for a perfect start in our Aussie-trip

    Michael2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • A very clean, well-equipped apartment right on the beautiful Royal National Park. Everything in the apartment is there and Maryellen and John are very courteous, unobtrusive hosts. The train line and shops are within walking distance and the train takes you to the airport or Sydney in about 40 minutes. A few other places and beaches are also easy to reach. So you can have a good time here even without a car. In front of the apartment is the terrace with the pool. Many birds can be observed from here and it is only a few steps to the national park. The apartment is very spacious for 2 people, the bed is super comfortable and you will also find everything you need in the kitchen. There is even Netflix, so you can watch German films from your bed. You can also use a washing machine. The apartment is a bit noisy, which is really the only negative thing that comes to mind about the accommodation. The songs of the many birds and the few noises from the neighborhood didn't bother us at all. We would love to come back - if it weren't for Germany.

    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.
  • Amazing place to stay! Absolutely beautiful!

    Keira2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Tara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect great hospitality, wonderful recommendations and a truly relaxing time by staying here. The bungalow was beautiful and exactly what we wanted for a weekend getaway. We had a swim down at nearby Coledale beach, and brekky at Thirroul, after which we had a poke through the interesting shops there. Would highly recommend!

    Timothy2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a solo getaway - stylish and serene. Just a short drive from beautiful swimming spots and everything else you need. Sarah is a warm and responsive host.

    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.
  • Beautiful cottage! Lovely host!

    Matt2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    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
  • Spacious, family friendly, peaceful accommodation. Would recommend to all looking for an escape from the daily grind

  • We had such a lovely time staying here, super confortable place close to pretty much everything. We travelled by Train and it was easy to access the station as well as to walk to all surrounding areas. We hope to return one day! Thank you :)

    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.
  • Beautiful location, very private, clean & comfortable. I wish we had more than one night to enjoy it. Jan is a lovely host, quick to respond & extremely accommodating. 5 star.

    "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

    Sarah2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    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

    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.

    The Baba Flat is a brand new, light filled apartment built as a second storey on our home. The apartment has been built to give my Dad a more private place to stay when he visits from the UK. It's the perfect option if you want to visit friends/family in the local area or as a base for exploring the South Coast of Sydney. We are perfectly located, 2 mins drive from Helensburgh CBD, 12 mins drive from Stanwell Park Beach and 10 mins walk to the Station.
    The apartment sits separately to our home on the second floor and offers beautiful bushland views. We offer a comfy, open plan living area with a dining table and spacious balcony. The spacious master bedroom has a second balcony and a built in wardrobe. The second bedroom can be set up as a twin or a king bed. There is full kitchen with dishwasher, sink, cook top, oven and microwave.
    Helensburgh is a friendly, family focused community and offers all the amenities that you need including: Free Public Swimming Pool, 3 Playgrounds, Supermarket, Fruit and Veg shop, Many Cafes, Restaurants, Pub, Club Helensburgh is located a short drive from the stunning Bald Hill look out point and Stanwell Park Beach (10/12 minutes). We are equally close to the Royal National Park which offers stunning scenery, wonderful beaches and great bush walking. A mountain bike track has recently been built two minutes ride from our house, there are also extensive bush walking tracks in the same area (Garawarra State Park).
  • This is a brand new space above the hosts house. Very clean, neat and tidy and everything is new. Great quiet space in the Helensburgh area.

    Jen2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location at the Southern end of the Royal National Park. Good dinner options and a nice cafe in Helensborough town centre were a short drive away. A lovely new clean self contained unit, with a great shower. Well recommended.

    Chris2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny is a great host and made us feel welcome upon arrival. She showed us where everything was and the house is very clean, open plan, nicely decorated and fairly new. Very conveniently situated and close to the shops. Side entry has steps and is easily accessible from the road but needs some Cosmetic improvements and with off street parking away from the front of the house as the house is on a bend.

    Salanieta (Sally)2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place, very nice and modern with a nice vibe. Would happily stay there again. Great communiciation from owners. Can't rate highly enough.

    Nick2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny’s upstairs flat showcases everything we love in a holiday home: lots of natural light, beautiful breezes through, gorgeously styled in minimal scandi decor and the ability for total privacy. Jenny was so inviting and communicative both via Airbnb and in person to us and our children for all queries, including requests to pat their lovely dog. We will be back for another stay!

    Emma2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • New and spacious space. Well lit with everything you need in the kitchen and bedrooms for a comfortable stay. Close to town and nice bush walks. Great service with the high chair and organizing us a portacot. Immaculately clean and safe space for our young boy.

    Johnson2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great, easy to reach and plenty of room for everybody, Jenny suggested us about the restaurants to eat and the places around to see. Sadly we were only 2 nights and the first day we had bad smoke haze because of the fires around Sydney so we couldn’t have enjoyed it as much as wanted but the whole family and dog were great and I can just highly recommend it to everybody

    Cristina2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Was an amazing place with a lot of nature and great surroundings. Cozy and fully furnished, Jenny was really nice and made sure everything was okay. Could’ve supplied more linen and towels but overall the place was nice and tidy !!!

    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.

  • 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.

    Stanwell Park is a beautiful pocket of charm only an hour away from the CBD from Sydney and 30 mins from Wollongong. Many bush trails for the happy hiker in the Royal National Park, Bald Hill close by for those that are thrill seekers and wanting to experience hang gliding/paragliding. Surf seekers and beach lovers will find numerous gorgeous beaches nearby and in local region. For food lovers, there are some lovely little cafes in Stanwell as well as along the coast line.
    The space is a beatiful large bedroom on the lower level of the house with it’s own deck. You have access to your own bathroom. Outdoor deck with hammocks and a small table setting for two. I have provided a breakfast bar with continental breakfast, bar fridge, kettle and toaster. Homemade jams and fresh bread as well as a fruit platter. Home cooked meals can be made on request for an extra charge. I also offer one on one yoga sessions to my guests if they wish to take a class. Bathroom is well equipped with all the necessities needed to help you feel fresh and clean. If you are travelling with children, I have a porta-crib and air bed mattress that can be set up in the bedroom, free of charge. Plenty of board games, books, DVDs and TV to keep them occupied. Anything else needed, just ask. 😁

  • Situated in the leafy Sutherland Shire in a really quiet street, this was a gem of an Airbnb. As a result of our flight arriving late, check in was around ten pm. This wasn't too much trouble for Linley who was there to welcome us, along with his wife. Unlimited wifi, fresh coffee available and a laptop. We were able to use the sofa as another bed for our son, and Linley quickly provided additional bedding before we even asked! We used a car every day, and access was easy to our destinations.

    Hi, my name is Phil. I would be happy to welcome you to Heathcote, one of Sydney’s most beautiful suburbs! I am passionate about the environment and the protection of natural heritage. I can show you how to get to some Aboriginal rock carvings and places like Uloola Falls, Karloo Pool and Figure 8 Pool. Where I live in east Heathcote is only a 5 minute walk from the edge of Royal National Park, one of the oldest in the world. Check out Royal NP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1tYQ4g7p-c
    Your room, situated at the first floor, is approx. 15 m2. It has a queen size bed. The whole townhouse is approximately 200 m2. There are two other bedrooms, a big living room connected to the kitchen, a garden, one bathroom, two toilets and a laundry room. You will share the common parts of the house with me. You will have a toilet of your own.
    My place is about 10 minutes’ walk from Heathcote station. Heathcote is a suburb in the south of Sydney. It is about an hour by train to the centre of Sydney. Local shops are 15 minutes away on foot. A larger shopping centre and many shops are one train stop away in Engadine, or a half hour walk.
  • Phil made us feel not just like tourists but personal guests of honor. We arrived strangers and left as friends.

    Gerhard2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, went above and beyond to help us have a great experience. Space was clean and welcoming in a good location near transport, royal national park and local maccas.

    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!

    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!

  • 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!

Really appreciated the little touches like included breakfast and wood for the fire. Barbie also helped with our every request! Although it’s on the pricier side it is so worth it and we hope to come back again soon.

    Steve2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

    Our Granny flat is a very welcoming space. Although it is quite close to our house- you will have all the privacy you need. With split cycle air conditioning you will be warm in winter, and cool in the very hot summer months. Clean linen, towels, basic bathroom needs are all supplied. Tea and coffee and a light breakfast also supplied. A kitchenette, and bathroom all in the space. Netflix is on the tele also. Check in / out times are definitely negotiable.
    Our Granny flat is a very calm and CLEAN space. You will not find dirt or grime- Linen is fresh, towels are clean, and the place will be spotless upon your arrival.
    Loftus is a quiet suburb in the heart of the Sutherland Shire. We are a 20 minute drive to the iconic Cronulla beaches, and in the other direction-we are on the doorstep of the Royal National Park. A 40 minute trip on the train will take you into the city centre. Our place would be ideal for people travelling down the East coast, who would like to stop and have a little look around this beautiful area, or anyone who is coming for family visits in the area. Also weddings in the National Park! You couldn’t get much closer.
  • Very clean and quiet..easy to feel at home...also to be able to walk to restaurant/pub is a bonus.

    Wendy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • In a quiet and restful location, Phoebe's Granny Flat affords clean, comfortable accommodation with welcoming touches, close to but separate from the main house. About a 20 min walk or a short drive from Sutherland station, the bush views, sunsets and background sounds of bush birds provide a lovely place to rest or a convenient base for exploring. We'd stay again!

  • 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.

  • 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 :)

  • 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.

    Holly2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Tim2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Jeanette2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Alison’s place is a lush little oasis in the trees. Only a 5 minute walk to a gorgeous beach and 2 minute walk to shops. The place itself is clean, spacious and homely. 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
  • We loved our stay in Ali’s apartment in Stanwell Park. We had everything we needed. Ali was a fantastic host, giving us some tips on local cafes and even offered us a lift to the train station. Would highly recommend.

    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. Alison was an excellent host - communicative, warm and generous. She was very thoughtful, providing some welcome bits for us like milk and bread. 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.

    Jo2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most wonderful stay with Ali. Absolutely perfect relaxing private space to unwind. Beautiful clean space with private deck and garden, easy walk to the shops and beach. Ali is such a great host, met to gain access and be shown around and she had even left some fresh baguette cookies and milk for me in the fridge. Could not recommend higher, such a wonderful space and host! Thanks Ali, I will be back for sure!

    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!

    Chrissy2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place and hosts

    Dima2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Chis2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Kathryn was great! Wonderful Airbnb host and would definitely recommend to friends and family. Great value for money, the location was second to none, the accomodation was ideal and the host was so easy to communicate with and so flexible and considerate! Thank you Kathryn

  • Beautiful clean room with kitchenette stocked nicely with coffee, teas, juice and water. Nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. We had a quiet evening in after a long day at the Royal. Perfect ending to our day. Thank you!

    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

    A short walk to the famous Scarborough Hotel, and stunning beach, this private apartment is spacious and comfortable. Enjoy the morning sun from the verandah and listen to the sound of the waves from the beach. With it's own lockable access, it's secure and totally self contained, with large kitchen and bathroom areas.

    If you enjoy walking, there are countless opportunities to explore the local environment. There are bush tracks, beaches galore, and you can even climb the Escarpment from the track at Austinmer. This is a 1klm, 45% walk along a stepped track. If you're fit and adventurous, then this is a must-do.
  • 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.

  • 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.
