Description

Casa el Punto is situated just off the beach as close as one can possibly be to the Illawarra's iconic Sandon Point, this exquisite home offers something for any holiday goer. Whether you want to play on the beach, relax, tour, or engage in a mixture of activities, you can do it all here without even packing the car....swim, surf, cycle, fish, picnic, play, or just lay on the beach! There are also a multitude of local sights and destinations to visit and/or experience in easy reach.

For surfers: For the more accomplished, Sandon Point Break is well known for its awesome (and frequent) world class waves. It is a classic right hand point break. Additional choices for depending on your capability and the conditions include Bombie on the opposite side; the Reef (a reef break) about a 200 meters south followed by Peggy's, another righthander. You can check all of these breaks out from the front deck. Just further south is a another whole set of options including Bulli and Woonona beaches....and the reef break at Bellambi which has become very popular among the long boarders.


For beach lovers, this beautifully appointed home sits 50 meters across from Sandon Point Beach, with McCauleys/Thirroul beaches to the north, and Bulli/Woonona beaches to the south.....all patrolled beaches except for McCauleys. Plenty of sun, sand, and surf for everyone. One of the best kept secrets of this stretch of adjoining beaches is how tranquil it can be compared to Austi/Thirroul beaches during the summer. Even in the midst of the school holidays, you may find yourself one of just a handful of people strolling along the beach at any given time of the day (except on Sunday mornings when surf school is in session!).

If you want the best of everything, accommodation, location, view, amenities, proximity to the surf...and a very custom personalized approach, then..... Casa el Punto is the go!

The Location

Hard to beat the location...spend a day at the beach? Just walk out the front door. Not much to pack up when it's only 50 meters to the sand! ...or have a picnic on the grass overlooking the beach. A large canopy and eskies are available upon request (included).

Go for a jog or a bike ride? A 13km bike track for walking, jogging, and cycling is right outside the front door and hugs the foreshore all the way into Wollongong. We've got bikes and helmets!

Enjoy bushwalking? ...there are some great trails nearby. There is a hiking trail up the escarpment to Sublime Point only minutes away.

There are three great cafes within short walking distance (less than 1k!) ...The Point Cafe (best food), Bulli Beach Cafe (best views), Ruby's (best value and a local favourite).

Thirroul Village restaurants and shops are minutes away by car or a relaxing walk along the bike trail.

For those wanting to venture out at night and leave the kids behind, we can recommend and/or arrange babysitting services!

The location is alo a great base for a host of other adventures ....Symbio Wildlife Park, Sea Cliff Bridge, Hang gliding at Bald Hill, coastal drive through Royal National Park. Easy day trips to the coastal towns of Shellharbour, Kiama, Jamberoo, Berry. Take a drive up through Macquarie pass to Robertson and the Illawarra Fly.

For our international visitors, Sydney's CBD is an easy train ride (an hour and 20 minutes) through some picturesque country.

...or just kick back with a glass of wine and some canapes on the deck and enjoy the view!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very special accommodation! Staying at Casa el Punto was the absolute highlight of our month-long road trip. The brilliant location, with 180 ocean views, was just the start. We were met by the convivial owner, who made us feel so welcome, and who gave a detailed tour. We enjoyed the exquisitely decorated, roomy home as a couple but the 4 bedrooms on two levels would easily make a comfortable stay for more. The generosity of the owners with their amazingly well-equipped kitchen, the up-to-date media center, the available sporting equipment also made for an excellent stay. We have done a lot of travelling, and stayed in many types of accommodation. It is rare, and such a pleasure, to stay where we felt immediately at home. Casa el Punto definitely reflects the hospitality and taste of the owners. We would recommend a stay here very highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute beachfront We were 3 families all with children under 5 and found this property to be amazing. The location was perfect, a quick stroll across the road to the patrolled beach. The house is spread over 2 levels and is decorated with travel trinkets from all over the world. We just had to put a few out of reach for little fingers, but this was no hassle. There was 2 seperate living areas, one for adults and one for kids which was perfect. We used the bbq both nights and once kids were asleep the adults retreated to the airy informal lounge area upstairs for laughs and utilising the 'Battle of the Sexes' card game. The kitchen was not only stocked with oil, salt and pepper etc but also 2 loaves of bread, milk, eggs, pasta, condiments galore, hot chocolate and the Nespresso machine was well utilised. There was also a jar of choc chip cookies! The house came with boogie board for adults and kids as well as 2 push bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house and great host! Spacious, cozy, luxurious and tasteful decorated house. Our host Michael was helpful and generous. Kitchen was well stocked with bread, milk, fruits, and even a bottle of red wine! Beach is just outside the house. It is a pity that none of us can surf but we had a good time walking along the beach and picking up some beautiful shells! Very much enjoyed our stay at Casa El Punto!
