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 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.

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT/ LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
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.
