BEACH HOUSE, RIGHT AT THE BEACH - PATROLLED WITH LIFE GUARDS AND FLAGS THRU SUMMER (1 minute across the grass) - 1.5 HRS DRIVE SOUTH OF SYDNEY - JUST NORTH OF KIAMA.
Shellharbour Beach Cottage is a 3 bedroom cottage, located at Shellharbour South Beach. Just step out the back gate onto the grass reserve and walk through the small beach car park or across the grass, to the beach path and flags (in summer) or stroll to the olympic size pool and cafes, restaurants and playground.
LOW SEASON SPECIALS: 2016 OUTSIDE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS:
ANY 2 NIGHT STAY: $660. Extra nights $200. 7th night FREE - $1460. (For up to 6adults/2children). $30 per night extra adults to maximum 8. (Children and dogs free).
(((PLEASE NOTE: To save confusion, although we are very close to the beach, we do NOT have seaviews. Trees on the public beach reserve, that borders our back fence block any views. There is a small beach car park on the public reserve. We do NOT have airconditioning. We have sea breezes and southerlies that cool the house. I am not prepared to charge everyone extra for 24/7 air con that may only be needed a couple of days a summer. 3 couples sharing our 3 bedroom cottage for the weekend pay $55 per person/per night. Kids and dogs FREE. I would say, EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE. --------- This was added late March 2016, due to the confusion of One Reviewer - see below.))
