'The Beach House' is located 1.5 hours south of Sydney in the tranquil and idyllic setting of beautiful Minnamurra. The property is situated at the mouth of the Minnamurra River and boasts one of the most beautiful ocean views you're likely to see, flanked by unspoiled crown land and crisp clear waters that are home to an abundance of marine life. It's prime positioning on the mouth of the river means guests get to enjoy both the more peaceful nature of the river water which can at times appear to be a lake, or the turbulent energy of the ocean just beyond. During low tide the river produces two large sand banks divided by a shallow pool which make it an ideal place for children to splash about and creates easy access to the ocean beach. During high tide the river becomes the perfect location for any number of water craft. A gentle paddle up into the mangroves or for the more adventurous, a sea kayak through the waves and around Rangoon Island.
The house itself was originally built in the 50's and underwent major renovations 2 years ago to create a luxurious retreat while still maintaining the charm and style of it's mid century heritage, tastefully furnished in a mid-century modern feel with a lot of the property's original pieces.
The house has two double rooms and a loft with two single beds as well as 2 full bathrooms and full kitchen. The master bedroom is adjoined by a walk in closet which leads through to the ensuite with shower and separate soaking bath tub to help you fully relax. It also boasts ample outdoor entertaining areas including a large deck accessed through the main living area to create and indoor/outdoor environment with outdoor sofa that looks out over the water as well as two outdoor dining areas, one atop the property's boat shed and the other on the street side of the house which offers more protection should the sea breeze be too strong. It also offers Broadband Wifi, TV, DVD, indoor/outdoor iPod connectivity and we have just introduced Netflix for your enjoyment with hundreds of movie, TV and documentary titles right at your finger tips.
***please note that bed sheets and towels are NOT provided***
The local area also offers any number of activities. Only 20 minutes out of major city Wollongong and 10 minutes into the historic sea side village of Kiama. A short drive in land see's you to Jambaroo, home to Jambaroo action park and the beautiful Minnamurra rainforest and waterfall trail. For those less inclined to venture too far the Minnamurra Park at the end of the block offers two full size tennis courts, or perhaps a round of Golf at the Kiama Golf Course a short walk from the property or mosey on over to the Minnamurra General Store Cafe virtually across the street for the best coffee on the south coast which offers a delicious gourmet menu and home baked goods.
This is a family owned property. A lot of the pieces in the house are original mid-century antiques and are fragile. Please treat with care and respect.
