A Seaside Getaway
The Beach House
Stanwell Park Beach Cottage is a spacious holiday rental overlooking the beach and ocean. Nestled within Stanwell Park, the cottage 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.
Stanwell Park is famous for its relationship with Lawrence Hargrave, who pioneered the development of the Box Kite on Stanwell Park Beach. Also, DH Lawrence made “Wyewurk” in Thirroul his home during the writing of the novel Kangaroo.
With an abundance of natural beauty, historical connections, art galleries and beaches, Stanwell Park is a great location for a family holiday, catching up with friends, or just relaxing.
The video here en-captures exactly what a stay with us feels like. This was produced by an Australian expat, journalist, designer and traveler, 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!
