Patonga’s Old School House
This quaint historic building was once the Patonga School House and has also been a general store. We have chosen to nickname the house, POSH Patonga’s Old School House because it’s easier to say than the lengthy name.
POSH is an historic building but was sympathetically renovated creating an open, airy, ambient atmosphere inside whilst retaining the quaint, ‘old school’ appearance. POSH is now a comfortable, open plan, casual beach house.
POSH is within a few moments easy level stroll to all amenities that Patonga has to offer which includes the Coffee Shop, Renowned Fish and Chip Shop as well as the Patonga Hotel which serves great meals.
Of course there is also the beach, creek and Patonga Wharf across the road from the coffee shop, great to wander out on to the wharf to sip your coffee enjoying the views, the sunshine and waterside activities.
This house has a light and airy ambience. It offers open plan, casual living, a well equipped galley kitchen, with 3 bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. The living space opens onto a private courtyard which nestles beneath a stunning cliff highlighted by the spotlights at night.
Ceiling fans - throughout the house add to the sea breeze in summer and in winter there is a gas heater to keep the house cosy. Go to sleep to the sound of the waves.

Purpose of Visit
Patonga is a quiet fishing village, a very special place not very far from Sydney, where a you can relax, do as much as you wish or as little as you wish, cook as much as you like or not at all, go on long walks or short walks or not at all. It is quiet and we’d like to keep it that way by asking that the rights of neighbours and the community is respected.
POSH is a place where families get together, relax, enjoy the ambience, enjoy the beach, watch the stars, watch the birds, watch a movie, take the kids on a walk, to the playground, play a game of hit and giggle at the tennis courts, fish, swim, paddle, sunbake or just let the world rush on by.
We rarely book back to back so that allows us to be flexible with arrival and departure times.
If you have any requests regarding this, please talk to us.
WEDDING PACKAGES: ONE NIGHT STAY
We do not normally offer one night accommodation however we have been considering allowing a one night stay particularly for guests to attend weddings.
As we are sure you will understand, cleaning, laundry costs as well as utilities such as gas, electricity and water must be factored in to a total amount.
The house is three bedrooms, two bathrooms, sleeping seven and a cot is available as well as a large amount of amenities including bath towels and bed linen. The house is also walking distance to the Patonga Hotel who offer a courtesy bus as well as other facilities.
Therefore we will consider a one night stay, minimum cost of $500.00 with a Security Deposit of $200.00. The Security Deposit is fully refundable pending the condition of the house house rules adhered to upon guests departure.
Arrival and Departure times can be negotiated. Pets are not included in this package unless by special negotiation.
For a group, this package is quite reasonable and will ensure the cost of all amenities are met.
Patonga Schoolhouse is NOT available for parties or other occasions that create noise or disturbance to others. Patonga Schoolhouse is therefore NOT available for bucks' weekends, "schoolies week" etc.
There is a minimum two night stay requirement on this property unless you wish to take advantage of the Wedding Package mentioned above and by negotiation.
