Welcome to Solveena, my home away from home and now yours too. I have opened this home and set it up with the intention of bringing families together and providing a fun and relaxing holiday experience for all family members.

Solveena is the culmination of everything I love about my quaint hometown of Solva in old south Wales, where my own family memories were created, and my new home – Bundeena - a resort where I hope your family will create many new memories.


Bundeena is one of Sydney’s best-kept holiday secrets. Here, you can have the spacious, family bonding experience you desire, without the crowds of inner city beaches, or the long drives of most NSW coastal getaways. Bundeena is only a one hour drive (50km) from Sydney’s CBD, yet it offers the same peace and tranquility than the other more frequented coastal regions. Once you experience the ease and lifestyle of Bundeena, you’ll wonder why you’ve spent so much time driving hours to find your holiday bliss all those years.

This village is a delightful experience, with all the beauty of the Royal National Park that it’s surrounded by. Sitting proudly on the waters of Port Hacking, there are endless activities, things to do and picturesque views here making it the ideal family destination.

The Home


The Solveena home is a three-bedroom two-bathroom family holiday house overlooking the sea. The rooms are spacious, and the living areas are open plan giving the space a wide, sunlit, sprawling feel. This is the only holiday rental providing the full family holiday experience with four living areas and all the entertainment you could possibly want: Netflix, DVDs, music, WII, over 20 board games, a separate games room with table tennis, pool, dartboard, plus two bikes, three kayaks and fishing equipment. Fully furnished and equipped with all linens, the only thing you need to worry about here is whether to go swimming, kayaking or for a hike along the coast.

The most tranquil beach in Bundeena (Gunyah) is only a two minute stroll, and the other main beaches (Jibbon/Hordern) is an easy five minute walk. The home sleeps six but can accommodate up to eight with extra mattresses available. The downstairs flat is currently used as my host quarters, however it can also be included in the rental at your request. Whether you’re a family looking for a special holiday, want to celebrate an important occasion, to reunite with loved ones, or just want to get away with friends or your partner, you will find what you’re looking for here.

Solveena is my home which I am opening up to you so that you can share the experience and hopefully you will leave it with more warmth as an even better place than when you arrived.

Room features:

Master bedroom: A spacious room fitted with a queen Bed, ensuite, TV and a built in, walk through closet.

Second bedroom: Features a queen bed, and built in robes.

Third bedroom: Feature two single beds and built in robes.

Laundry with washer and dryer.

Living area: This large, open plan living area faces north and has stunning sea views. It comprises of:

- A 65” TV, Stereo, DVD, streaming TV, Unlimited Wifi.

- Dining table area to seat eight.

- Fully functional open plan kitchen including oven, dishwasher, fridge and microwave.

- A large entertaining deck with BBQ.



Bundeena, meaning “sounds like thunder” in the indigenious language is a village full of community spirit. It may only be an hour drive away from Sydney but here you feel as though you could be in a seaside village far, far away.

Our area boasts five very different beaches: Gunyah, Hordern, Jibbon, Bonnievale and Shelley. Aside from enjoying these for a swim (which are all within walking distance) there are many things to do for the activity lovers including paddle boarding, boogie boarding, kayaking and snorkeling, cycling, bowling and Tennis at the local “Bowlo”, fishing (from either the beaches, sea or wharf) or sea fishing can also be organised through a local company. If hiking is more your style, you can walk one of the many coastal paths in the area, or explore the rock pools during low tide. For the culture seekers, we have many cafes, pottery and painting classes and an art gallery. On the first Sunday of every month we also have art trail where you can discover 20 local artists in their own galleries, and this also coincides with the Bundeena markets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most perfect family getaway Everything about our stay here was super super EASY. From booking, to driving in, to settling in, exploring the area, meeting Nolan, having guests over ... everything was just easy and hassle free. We have had a couple of bad experiences with travelling the last couple of times but we have walked away from our stay here feeling incredibly relaxed. Nolan was there the whole time (but other than answering our million questions did not bother us AT ALL) and helped up settle in, navigate around the area and allowed us to spend some very precious time with some family that visited us while we stayed here. Nolan made us feel very welcomed and allowed us access to lots of things he owned. As for the property it is very well set out, especially with families like ours with 3 young kids. There are spacious rooms, bathrooms and 2 living areas! We certainly did not feel like we were living on top of each other. We had some amazing BBQ's on the verandah with beautiful beach views. There is unlimited internet access, Netflix , Wii, X Box , games etc etc . which was all handy once the sun went down. The house is neat and clean and well presented. There is an abundance of linen as well. The location is PERFECT! Everything is within walking distance which means NO buckling and unbuckling booster seats a hundred times a day, no prams etc. etc. Beaches are all within a very short stroll on very quiet back streets. Be sure to visit Jibbon beach and the Aboriginal rock engravings! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, our family did too and we will most definitely be back. Thank you Nolan for opening your home to us..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic holiday Thank you for a fabulous welcome, for doing everything you could to make our stay as pleasant as it was and for allowing us the pleasure of a stay in your beautiful home. We wanted for nothing. I have stayed in Bundeena many times and we have now found the house we will always stay at if its available. It's so good I suspect you will get many repeat guests. The location, just across the road from the beach, is perfect. I love the view. The kids loved all the games and entertainment available. We all say a big thank you and we will be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Getaway This amazing house was like a home away from home on our recent trip. As a family it was the perfect retreat to come home to after attending a busy family wedding. I would totally recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Bundeena. The host of the property made us feel more than welcome during our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Family Fun! Just returned from a truly lovely holiday at this property in Bundeena. The location was second to none and waking up to the view of the nearby beach is an experience that cannot be beaten. Nolan, the property owner, was a fantastic host, always willing to share his knowledge and experiences of the area, and even spent some time teaching the younger members of our party how to snorkel! Most importantly the house he has built provides a perfect opportunity for families to reconnect and enjoy some time together. Whether it is playing on the beach, exploring the local area or just enjoying the generous entertainment facilities on offer in the house, you're sure to have a fantastic time. It certainly was a family holiday never to be forgotten!
