A Seaside Getaway
The Beach House
Stanwell Park Beach Cottage is a spacious holiday rental overlooking the beach and ocean. Nestled within Stanwell Park, this Stanwell Park accommodation is only one hour’s drive from Sydney CBD or half an hour’s drive from Wollongong. With three bedrooms, an outdoor deck area and all of the mod cons, this house comfortably sleeps up to seven adults. The house is very private and perfect for family holidays, couples, and groups of friends who are looking for a relaxed weekend getaway.
Stanwell Park is a small coastal village situated adjacent to the Illawarra Escarpment on the beautiful South Coast of NSW, Australia, just south of the Royal National Park.
This unique topography of mountains rising above coastal beaches provides the stark contrast of the mountains and the sea. Grand Pacific Drive, with its high tech road built daringly over the ocean, traverses through the village of Stanwell Park and winds its way around the mountain through the pretty towns of Coalcliff, Scarborough and Wombara.
The region is known for its picturesque beaches, walking tracks, paragliding & hang-gliding sports and popular family excursions to nearby Symbio Wildlife Park, Bundeena, and The Royal National Park.
A recent addition to the Stanwell Park area is a scenic walking track which commences at the main shops, goes directly past Stanwell Park Beach Cottage and meets up with Sea Cliff Bridge walkway in Coalcliff. It’s a stunning way to spend an afternoon – just remember to look back towards Stanwell Park as it’s very likely you’ll see several hang-gliders hanging over Bald Hill – a beautiful sight!
The video here encaptures exactly what a stay at this Stanwell Park accommodation feels like. This was produced by an Australian ex-pat, journalist, designer and traveller, Didiayer Snyder, who recently journeyed back to Australia from the US to feature some of her favourite destinations in her TV show “At Home With Didiayer”. We were so happy to have her family (and crew!) stay with us…and the end result is fabulous!
