Description

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 is 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 metres 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 personalised 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), Sea Salt (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 vistors, 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!

Casa el Punto is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Home by the sea! My family and I have enjoyed two beautiful days at Casa el Punto. As guest reviews before comment, this is more than a basic holiday home. The home is immaculate and portrays 5 star luxury, high class linen and towels with the added bonus of velour beach towels. The kitchen offers every chefs possible need. The security 'crimsafe' fly screens were an additional bonus. Ceiling fans and split system air conditioning made for added comfort during the humidity of February. The house sits directly behind Sandon Point, with majestic views north to Stanwell Tops and south to Wollongong. The large front timber deck, was a magnificent place to relax and savour the breeze with ocean views. We plan to return for another stay, hopefully soon. A big thank you to Michael for his attention to detail and always a prompt reply to our emails and messages. Thank you again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday resort Casa el Punto is not a holiday home but a 5 star resort with everything that makes a stay pleasurable provided.Ideally situated opposite a patrolled beach with spectacular views of the coast line our family had 9 enjoyable days surfing, swimming walking and bike riding. We could not fault the home for its facilities and helpfulness of Michael the owner. We would highly recommend this 5 star resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG - this house and situation are amazing. We visited from the UK to meet with my nephew and family. 6 of us stayed in this fabulous house for a week (wish it had been longer). The views from the balcony are stunning. Michael and Janice are wonderful hosts and are not far away if you need them. All you have to pack is your clothes and suntan lotion - everything else you need is in the home including hair dryers ladies! This is a gem of a holiday home - go on, treat yourselves.

The area is quiet and peaceful with a short walk to the beach.The home is modern and stylish with all the mod-cons including an easy-to-use coffee machine and a range of technology with magnificent views.The owners of this home go all out to make their guests feel welcome; fresh bread and a bottle of wine on arrival.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were disappointed to leave this lovely home. We didn't mind a few days of wet weather due to our exceptional and comfortable surroundings.
