Only 90 minutes from Sydney and yet half a world away, Rusty Gum at Hardy's Bay provides the perfect base for a short break or a longer stay to stop, breathe and reset.

Ideal for couples and families, this three bedroom, two bathroom cottage comfortably sleeps 6.

A short stroll from the cafes of Hardy's Bay waterfront, and five minutes drive from the surf at Killcare beach, you can choose the speed of your trips out, or simply stay at home reading the papers and enjoying the views from the deck, over bush and out to the water.

Light filled, with a rustic, funky feel, this recently refurbished holiday home is immaculately presented with everything you need for a comfortable, easy break.

Picturesque and peaceful, Killcare and Hardys Bay offer an idyllic coastal lifestyle. Residents have beaches and bushland at their disposal and they take maximum advantage of both. Putty Beach is a firm favourite, and the Bouddi Coastal Walk, which stretches all the way to Macmasters Beach, is a local go-to. Bouddi National Park is a natural delight, with walking trails, mountain biking tracks, fishing spots and beautiful beaches that are a world away from the daily grind. 

Killcare Village caters to basic shopping and service needs and features an art gallery, general store, hair salon, and boutique shops. It is a factor in the low-key, community feel the suburb is known for, and bigger shopping malls are just a short drive away. When it comes to dining, Killcare and Hardys Bay is a hidden hotspot. There are fine dining restaurants like Manfredi located inside Bells at Killcare, as well as relaxed beachside eateries such as The Fat Goose and Hardys Bay Bistro.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxed cottage in the treetops Our second stay at this relaxed timber cottage. We enjoy the balcony with visits from local birdlife and the leafy views. We also appreciate the quiet and peaceful location. Practical furnishings for a holiday rental. We look forward to returning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterfront Bliss Loved our weekend in this gorgeous home. Our favorite part was sitting out on the deck looking out over the water and just watching the boats and birds go by.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Average, but with a little work could be better. Firstly, thanks to the owners who graciously provided a complimentary welcome bag of goodies including wine, cheese, chocolate and a few other yummies, it was lovely to receive on check in and was devoured during our stay. This is a good house, it's set back away from the bay so don't expect any views, and rightly so the owners advised the driveway is steep and access to the property for those who may not be steady on their feet is not easy but all in all it serviced our needs. However, I think the house needs a complete detail/good clean. It was cleaned prior to arrival but more on the surface than anything, so it didn't feel like we had checked into somewhere completely serviced. Neat yes, but things like loads of dirt behind the microwave (been cleaned around it but not behind it), dusty blankets, and a few other things made it less than desirable. On the upside, it's a quick walk to all the Hardy's Bay shops which is great, and is perfect for a small group of people. I would recommend they consider a sensor light clearly positioned on all the walkways to and from the house just to make access at night a little easier.
