California has the Big Sur, Victoria has the Great Ocean Road and just south of Sydney and its Royal National Park is Grand Pacific Drive with the spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge. Just one kilometer south of the bridge is Seacliffs a stunning and spacious four-bedroom three-bathroom home standing in splendid isolation on a headland jutting out into the ocean far below.
This is just the place to sit back, relax and enjoy the uninterrupted northerly views of the thickly rainforested Illawarra escarpment as it tumbles into the Pacific in a series of sheer cliffs, rocky coves and sandy beaches - stretching out beyond the hangliders cruising the thermals at Stanwell Park to the Royal National Park and on to Sydney.
Enjoy the beachhouse
The large two-storey home has a spacious open-plan kitchen, living and dining room with spotted gum floors. Framed by glass bifolding doors, the rooms have uninterrupted northerly sea cliffs view and easterly views to the Pacific horizon. They open up onto oversized entertaining decks. The master bedroom, with ensuite bathroom, enjoys the northerly view, while a second bedroom on the top floor also has an ensuite.
Downstairs a casual living area with flat screen television and state of the art entertainment system, opens up to the gardens and the same incredible view. Another two bedrooms with shared bathroom make the house the ideal retreat for families or groups of adult friends to get away, cook up a storm in the large fully equipped kitchen, and enjoy shared good times with plenty of room to get away from each other and enjoy some privacy in the house and gardens intimate spaces.
While in the area
Set apart from the beachside towns north of Wollongong, Seacliffs has just two neighbours, and a small sandy beach at the bottom of the cliffs. A range of patrolled surfing beaches are just a just a short drive north or south, and its a short stroll to the famed Victorian-era Scarborough Hotel, and yet another version of that spectacular cliffhanging view.
If you can tear yourself away from this comfortably luxe home and the view, there is a wealth of heritage and cultural attractions within a short distance on this historic wild coastline with its coalmining villages and fascinating industrial heritage. The Clifton Arts Centre in the next village north is housed in a classic early 20th century School of Arts building. A cliff-hugging train, with a stop a short walk from the house, connects all the villages and beyond to the South Coast and Sydney.
The southern, less explored end of the Royal National Park with incredible bushwalks between isolated beaches and over clifftop heathlands, is a short drive north. The adventurous can take a tandem hang gliding flight or parachute onto a local beach.
Big city convenience, restaurants, cafes and delis can be found a short drive south in the bustling seaside communities, yet a weekend or extended break at will transport you to another slower, more relaxing time.

Seacliffs is a superb holiday house- really breathtaking views with a very easy going house with loads of room. The facilities are all first rate, and its in a beautifully isolated spot on the cliffs at scarborough but still easy to get to swimming, national park and all the cute little village shops you need to during your stay there. We had christmas and then new years at the house, and it was a really easy going atmosphere for both family and friends - plenty of space to get away from each other if needed and still great communal spaces for eating and bbq'ing. Its impossible not to relax there and we felt like we'd been away a lot longer than the ten days or so we were there!

Fabulous views and great location - close to the Seabridge and to local cafes & shops. Everything in the house was new but comfortable and we had everything we needed for the weekend. We had evening meals & leisurely breakfasts in the house and used the BBQ & the dining area inside as it was too cool to use the entertaining area on the lower level.A bonus was the performance by some whales while we were having drinks before dinner on the Saturday afternoon!

The views are magnificent and even with the bad October long-weekend weather, it was a pleasure to stay indoors reading a book by the fireplace. The Seacliffs Bridge is walking distance and several beach towns are all a short drive away. Your instructions to the house were clear and the restaurant suggestions were so helpful. Will not hesitate to recommend this stylish house to friends.
