DRIFTWOOD is a beautifully renovated holiday home which has featured in Australian House & Garden magazine.

Lovingly remade using the charming original features of the Patonga riverfront cottage, including leadlight windows, Driftwood today is a substantial house with light open spaces, up-to-date kitchen, bathrooms and modern equipment.

Driftwood is the perfect place to feel peace and privacy as you enjoy calming views to oyster leases and bushland across the Patonga Creek.

Driftwood has three bedrooms one king and two queen beds and two bathrooms within the house and a separate self-contained studio with queen bed, sofa bed and ensuite bathroom.

The WIFI is free, as are local calls.

There is Foxtel, Playstation, stereo, books, games and puzzles to entertain you.

Both the house and the studio have reverse cycle air-conditioning and there is a gas fireplace in the main living area.

The house is well-equipped with a modern induction kitchen, stylish cookware and utensils, and BBQ to make your own meals to eat on dining tables inside and outside, yet it is less than 200 metres from the wonderful Patonga Hotel, local cafe and the famous fish and chip shop.

Swim in the creek just in front or go for a short walk to the beach or take our KAYAKS for a paddle up the creek.


A short drive of less than 90 minutes from Sydney, Patonga is the most southerly beach on the NSW Central Coast.

Once you are there you feel like you are world away from any bustle or stress.

This is especially noticeable when you arrive and walk down the hall to see our gorgeous calm water views.

There is no through traffic so the village is perfectly quiet and safe.

Leave all your worries and cares behind. Patonga is a holiday destination but it is also the home of small and healthy fishing community.

The Pacific oysters from Patonga Creek's leases are some of the best in Australia.

Patonga is on the Great North Walk and you can pick up the path near the wharf in the centre of the village.

There are lovely beach walks, cycling paths nearby, bush walks and great boating.

Bring your own small boat and moor it on our mooring poles out the front. There is a boat ramp in the village.


We provide all linen and towels except beach towels and have set up the house to leave you little to do but relax and enjoy all the area offers.

Driftwood has three bedrooms within the house and a fourth in the studio.

The whole property sleeps 8 adults comfortably.

There are supplies of tea, coffee, condiments and herbs and spices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful We've just returned from 4 nights at Driftwood. This is an amazing house in a beautiful location. We were a family with 4 adults and 2 toddlers and it was a perfect set up for us with grandparents being able to have their own space in the studio. From kayaking, to having our little run about boat on the bank out the back, mud crabbing and drinks on the back deck - we had the best time. We are already talking about when we could go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paradise Our family holiday was made perfect by choosing to stay at Driftwood by the water. The house is beautiful ,comfortable and immediately felt like home. We spent most of our day playing out in the creek, whether it was swimming with the kids, fishing in our tinny that was moored up right at our back door or leisurely cruising up the creek in the kayaks. There are lots of places for a relaxing walk and a good feed at the local pub. We never wanted to leave, but we will be back. Thankyou Christa and Will

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great long weekender! Driftwood is beautifully presented and has everything we needed for a relaxing break from the city. The kitchen/living/dining area with views works really well. The inclusion of kayaks to use was an unexpected welcome touch. We will definietly be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful home, wonderful location. Driftwood is a beautiful home and has everything you could wish for included. The location is magical and we enjoyed our sunset drinks, walks along the river and beach, attempted the Great North Walk and got as far as the stunning look-out between Patonga and Pearl Beach. We loved the kitchen with all the top quality appliances and coffee machine! This house is styled to perfection and everything has been thought of. With WiFi and Foxtel included, this home has everything you need, and more. It made our annual Mother and Sons weekend a great success!
