The location is quite unique, the view simply stunning. Any time of year. Nuns Beach House is a large, comfortable house perched just above the pristine, golden sands and turquoise waters of Nuns beach - a secluded cove flanked by wooded headlands, 15 minutes south of Batemans Bay in South Rosedale. There are 2 gorgeous sandy beaches (Nuns and South Rosedale) within a couple of minutes' walk of the house down bush tracks and another small bay (Tranquil Bay) just 5 minutes' beyond Nuns beach. Guerilla Bay is an easy 30 minute walk.
The house itself is in a quiet and quite private setting being surrounded by its own native garden with no immediate neighbours. The view from the lounge room and the deck takes in the beach, the bush, the ocean crashing on the rocky headlands and a lighthouse in the distance. It is almost incomparable.

Nuns Beach House comprises 2 separate areas. Please note, there are no internal stairs. You may rent just upstairs, or upstairs and downstairs (you will never share Nuns with another party if you rent upstairs only).
There are 3-4 bedrooms upstairs, sleeping a maximum of 8 people and 2 bedrooms downstairs, sleeping a maximum of 6. The main living areas are upstairs.
Nuns provides affordable, comfortable, self-contained accommodation for 2 or 3 families or a group of friends holidaying together. Tariffs are an indication only. Contact us for a precise quotation, which is based on time of year, length of your stay and the number of adults and children.


South Rosedale is approximately 4 hrs south of the centre of Sydney, under 2 hrs from Canberra and a comfortable days drive from Melbourne. It is a small, pretty, peaceful, coastal village nestled in the bush, located off the scenic tourist drive between Batemans Bay - 15 minutes north - and Moruya - 20 minutes south. The area is relatively undeveloped, the beaches and waterways are sparkling and unspoilt and often deserted. The closest shops are at Malua Bay or Tomakin, a 5 minute drive from the house.

Local Attractions

Romantic, private beaches protected by bush and rugged, wooded headlands, and long stretches of sand - 2 beaches within a few minutes walk of the house down bush tracks, great for paddling, swimming or surfing.

Swingparks, tennis courts, shopping, galleries, boat trips, fishing cruises, sailing, canoeing, whale (October) and dolphin watching, golf, horse riding in and around Batemans Bay (15 mins).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Waht a fantastic house with tremendous views! The upstairs and downstairs accommodated our group with ease. The large kitchen and dining area, along with the BBQ, took the chore out of cooking. The beaches were amazing, safe to swim, and we even enjoyed a bit of touch footy and beach cricket. The beautiful walking tracks and wildlife were a bonus. I can safely say we���ll be back again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely lovely house. Don't get me wrong, we are not talking spa treatments and 3 michelin star cuisine in the area, but we are talking beautiful, unspoilt beaches literally on your door step, a house with all the conveniences you would need (including decent phone coverage) apart from wifi (who 'needs' wifi on holidays - you can get 3G if you need it!). The knives were sharp, kitchen well stocked, the water was hot and the beds comfortable! Enough said apart from, we'll be back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We had a great stay for 3 nights. The house has everythingyou require and plenty of room for the 10 of us. Just remember to ask directions down to the beach as it is through a neighbours property a few doors up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The location was beautiful - so many places to walk and explore. We enjoyed spending days on the beach, exploring bush tracks, finding sea caves and rock climbing. The beaches were almost private; most of the time we were the only ones around which was nice. The house was very large and perfect for our group of 11 people - plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, lounges, and living areas. The ping pong table was also a nice surprise! The only problems we encountered were that the BBQ was listed as a facility but it had no gas; and one of the benches for the kitchen table had been almost broken by a group before us so we weren't able to use it in fear of breaking it completely. But otherwise the house and the location were perfect and we would definitely recommend it to all!
