Places to stay in Stanwell Park
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.
  • Loved our stay at the bungalow. A very cool space, super relaxing. Enjoyed the local cafes and surroundings. Would recommend.

  • 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.

    Anneke2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Bungalow really feels like a getaway - surrounded by bush with a beautiful sea view. It was a perfect stay and we loved all of Sarah's little touches which really made us feel at home. We would definitely visit again and recommend it to all of our friends!

    Natalie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely gorgeous stay! I cannot recommend it enough. It’s in a really good location with amazing views of the beach and the house itself is just excellent.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Wombarra is widely regarded as the jewel in the crown that is the far northern suburbs of Wollongong. Very few places can offer rugged bush escarpment next to beautiful sandy beaches . All 1 hour from Sydney airport . There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and hotels all with 5 to 10 mins from Wombarra Springs.
  • Truly unforgettable experience! Beautiful place with an even better view. Animals were friendly and approachable. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away from the city.

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

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

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

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

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

    Sonia2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It's a beautiful place to stay with everything you need plus a few bonus animals, which made the trip amazing.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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!

  • 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!

    Our beach house is an ideal getaway. The guests accommodation is self contained and has its own private entrance, situated on the ground floor of our two storey home. Our residence is upstairs and has its own entrance. We'd like your stay to be private and relaxed. We are passionate surfers and the owner/operators of the local surf school, maybe have a surf lesson or coaching with us while your here or just relax!
    Our home is full of family memories. Our children are now grown and we're empty nesters. Our comfy home is great place to relax. A very short stroll and your at the beach! Cafes are also within walking distance. Take a spa after a bush walk or day at the beach, or just do nothing! Enjoy the afternoon sun in the bedroom, king size bed calls for afternoon naps. The hot tub is at your beck and call, read a book, enjoy a glass of bubbly on the deck enjoying both ocean and escarpment view's. The kitchen is yours to cook or venture out to one of the nearby restaurants.
    we live in an amazing town. Surrounded by the escarpment and close to the beach. Beautiful walks, drives and beaches. We are very close to the Royal National Park. Sea Cliff Bridge is 5 minutes south of us.
  • Absolutely loved this space! Really great vibes. The house oozed love and happy memories. Beautiful views from the kitchen and deck. Can’t wait to stay again!

  • Excellent place

    Max2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay and the host Fiona was very helpful. Great location; walking distance from the train station and very close to the beach.

    Jessica2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona's place is fantastic for a beach holiday outside of Sydney. My partner and I came down on the train and everything was within walking distance (though there is some hills to be aware of for those less mobile) for the weekend. Highly recommend this spacious beach-side home!

    Kyle2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona's place was the perfect get away from big city. It's the perfect location where the bush meets the sea, a bush hike followed by a surf. An amazing place to hear nature in its raw form with the birds conversing and a hint of city life with the train rattling by. Shops and cafes are a short walk away and so was the surf. Fiona's home felt like my childhood home with plenty of personal touches and children paraphernalia. I'll definitely stay again.

    Maria2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona was so lovely and went above and beyond. Place was great and close to the beach.

    Jaimie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Really great little spot and a wonderfully furnished property. Definitely recommend staying here.

    James2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fiona's place was the perfect weekend getaway. The views from the balcony and bedroom were stunning and the bed was so comfortable! It's quite a large space, however we did have trouble getting out car out of the driveway due to the slope.

The accomodation is very close to the beach, a short five min walk. Anne was available if we needed anything during our stay, but otherwise gave us lots of privacy which we really appreciated. We will definitely be back! Vanessa and Aidan

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

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

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

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

    Gabriel2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

    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. 😁
  • Lovely place, very well equipped, quiet and in a nice part of town.

    Karin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Amelia’s place in beautiful Stanwell Park, just a 10 min walk from cafes and 15 min walk to the beach. There are great views from the deck and Amelia was a great host, offering lots of local tips.

    Mateo2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • I wish I could spend more time in this amazing place! It is truly beautiful, view from the deck is nice and leafy. It’s 30min drive to Royal National Park and 5min drive to local shops. The space is a piece of paradise! I really really recommend to stay at Amelia’s house and enjoy every minute you’re there!

    Olga2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place was even better than it looked online. Great place for a little break. Amelia was a great host.

    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

This place made us fall in love with Stanwell Park!

  • Jackie & Chris loved gazing and listening to the sound of the ocean. The apartment was perfect to relax and unwind away from city life. We loved the outdoor shower after a sunset swim, perfect way to zen out with nature. We adored the detailing of finishes and architecture of the aparment. Driftwood is so close to some great hikes and even walk/ run & swim at Standwell Park Beach. Cannot wait to do it all again soon.

    Jackie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Airbnb was beyond our expectations in every which way. The apartment is stunning with high ceilings, bay windows, and very tastefully furnished. Wilma and Paul made us feel very welcome with thoughtful touches such as snacks and drinks upon arrival. We made good use of the guidebook, which led us to the wonderful wodi wodi hike. The beach is only a few minutes walk from the apartment, and also makes for great views from the balcony. We would love to stay here again.

    Rashmi2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful apartment, so clean and open. Wilma and Paul were perfect hosts and the extra touches made such a difference. We will be back again!

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

  • Gail was very friendly and quick with communication; organising the stay and check in was a breeze. The cottage was spotless and there wasn’t a thing she hadn’t thought of to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We had a great night’s sleep and it was lovely to wake to freshly baked bread and cold juice in the fridge. The property is beautiful and the location is incredible. I only wish we could have stayed a little longer to enjoy everything on offer! Highly recommend this bnb. Thank you Gail

    Loren2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ten out of ten, this Airbnb is the best I've stayed in. Very clean and equipped with all the essentials and lots of extra touches too that made myself and my friends feel at home. We enjoyed the spa too and the beach was only a short stroll away. Gail and Steve we kind and easy to communicate with. Thank you!

    Xanthe2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I (parents and two young toddlers) stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect! Great location close to a couple of cafes and a short walk to two playgrounds and the beach. It was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend away from the city. The space itself is nice and quiet and leads out to a gorgeous pool surrounded by trees. We had absolutely everything we needed - towels, coffee, cereals, extra pillows, etc...not to mentioned the freshly baked bread that was left for us both mornings!

    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

    Beautiful architect-designed home in picturesque Stanwell Park, just over an hour's drive from Sydney. Nestled amongst the trees on the edge of the Royal National Park, and only a five minute stroll to the beach. The entire three-level house is yours to enjoy, and comes with everything you'll need for a relaxing holiday in all seasons. Enjoy surfing at the beach, bushwalking in the national park, toasting marshmallows around the fire pit, or playing a board game in front of the fire.
    ***Coronavirus Update*** Our house will remain available during the coronavirus epidemic whilst we can guarantee high-level cleaning between each booking. In addition to the usual thorough cleaning regime, we have introduced additional measures to ensure your safety, including steaming all floors, cleansing all surfaces and door/tap handles with alcohol-based disinfectant, and laundering all linens at high temperatures. We have adequate supplies of toilet paper and kitchen paper towels for hand drying. Our beach house spreads over three levels. There's two bedrooms (including master bedroom with ensuite) on the upper level. The middle level is the main living area, with a giant deck for entertaining, kitchen, a dining room (with extension table which sits 12 comfortably), luxurious lounge area with fireplace, a media room with movie projector for watching movies, or anything streamed from the NBN, and a large BBQ area with fire pit. The ground level has two further bedrooms and another lounge area opening onto a lush tropical garden with veggie patch. All bedrooms will be made up ready for your arrival. We include all bed linens, bath towels and beach towels. We also include fire wood for the fireplace and the fire pit. Groups of up to 8 will be comfortably accommodated in the four bedrooms. Please note that there are two internal staircases in the house (see house plan). This may make the house inappropriate for young children or people with mobility issues.
    Our house is located in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Only an hour south of Sydney, it is the very first beach after the Royal National Park, hence the whole area is teaming with colourful native birdlife. Stanwell Park beach is famous for its surf break and very popular for board riders. For body surfers there's a safe patrolled area. Stanwell Park has the ambience and attitudes of a friendly country town. Be prepared for a conversation with the neighbours and other visitors to this special enclave.
  • The house is great for several couples and families with the split living areas, but be aware if the stairs . It's an easy walk to the beach down through the back yard.

    Jenny2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great weekend away with a crew of 4 adults and 4 kids very comfortably. Super close to the beach and a great playground (for when it’s not beach weather!)

    Lisca2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A very fancy and industrialesque look. Love the southern coast and their frequent parrot visits every morning. A perfect way for an outlook into Stanwell beach with a coffee in hand. The housing is an open and spacious studio style housing with thin walls and floors. Beds and baths were very comfortable and fully equipped. There were so many resources we didn't get to use it all. I love the little touches the place has offered; herb garden and a bottle of wine was very much appreciated. The location was beautiful however be careful when parking as slopes are narrow as well as being on your best manner as neighbours frequently watch and direct you where to park.

    Joseph2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    Iris2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sea View is a wonderful, relaxed and welcoming holiday home. There are many thoughtful touches here including lots of dvds and board games and good books. Also the host's local tips about the path down to the beach was wonderful and the old railway tunnel were great for feeling like we were having amazing adventures. There were also the kookaburras and sulphur crested cockies that came visiting on the veranda. We'll definitely be back.

    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!

  • 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
  • Kathryn and Carl have created a beautiful space close to the beach, bush and town. All within an hours drive of Sydney. We look forward to visiting again and seeing the progress on the garden and pond.

    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

    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

    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 !!!

    Marion2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay at this lovely property. Jenny went above and beyond with milk ready on arrival to lending us an iron & board & organising a taxi for us from the local area. Friendly, welcoming & a great place to stay.

    Wilma2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
