In the evening you can marvel at the sparkling city lights down the coast glowing in the evening sky.

This new architecturally designed property has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, contemporary open kitchen, reverse cycle air-conditioning and large entertaining balconies and so much more to make your next holiday truly unforgettable.

The house is very stylish and private with only one adjoining neighbour. Once you walk through the gates you will feel you're miles away, perfect for a break and recharging the batteries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading This house is overpriced and over rated. It is run down in dire need of updating. It was advertised as three bathrooms it is two and one toilet. The fourth bedroom had no storage. The house was dirty in parts, the deck area, barbque, oven and garage. Gardens overgrown. Quality of linens very poor. Furniture was either handed down our from fantastic furniture. No Foxtel and no internet reception. DEFINITELY NOT A FIVE STAR property

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My friends and I just spent an amazing weekend at Seaside Sactuary and couldn't be happier. The breataking views from the balcony really set the scene for a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. There was plenty of room for us to relax, kick back and enjoy the surroundings which contributed to a fabulous weekend away. I would thoroughly recommend the property and hope to visit again at some point in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My partner and I recently stayed at Seaside Sanctuary with 2 other couples. It is a fantastic place for a long weekend get away if you are a Sydneysider and want to escape for the weekend (only 1 hour scenic drive from the city). The location is quiet and the house has everything you need. Great balcony/BBQ entertainment area, spacious kitchen and dining room. The bathrooms are the real treat with antique baths and big showers. It took us 3 mins to walk to the beach (patrolled beach but not many people) and the gorgeous Scarborough Hotel/pub is only minutes walk from the house also. I would highly recommend this location and in particular the accommodation.
