Renovated miners cottage in very beautiful rain forest setting, bird life, sea sounds, absolutely aesthetic and unique. Everything you need for a special chilled out holiday away from the crowd.

Property sleeps 4 adults. Two bedrooms with queen size beds. All linen and towels provided. Bedrooms have ceiling fans.

Home has reverse cycle air conditioner, a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, Beautiful bathroom and outdoor hot shower. Washing machine and dryer. Gas BBQ and large outdoor setting. Cozy verandah to enjoy the view. Private garden and house directly beside creek and rainforest backdrop which we own. The home provides comfortable living /dining room with views of the surrounding rainforest.

NBN and smart tv, catch up free to air tv, Netflix and WIFI. No free to air TV reception but a huge collection of mainly art house dvds. DVDS CD player BYO music. Iphone dock to play your own music.

Due to the escarpment we are in a bit of a black spot. Mobile reception is best outside Optus reception is fine. Telstra for some weird reason is very patchy.

Strictly minimum 2 night stay only. We cannot do one night bookings. During the Easter period we have a minimum 3 night stay.

Close to train to Sydney, about 8 mins walk up a hill.

Although tucked away in a rainforest it's only 3 mins drive or a 3/4 km walk down the hill to beach and very cool village cafes.

Young children and pets are not recommended due to the challenges of the rainforest and creek.

No-smoking indoors.

Local Area:

Coledale is a rare unspoiled piece of paradise, set between the dramatic, dreamy escarpment and lots of little beaches. It has a laid back village atmosphere, with a patrolled beach, surfers beach, sea pool, rock pools, bush walks, 2 cafes, and a great video shop.

The very popular Coledale Markets is held on the 4th Sunday of each month at the local primary school. Just a few minutes drive 'south' to Austinmer and Thirroul, you will find more beaches, a Bi Lo, good fruit and veg, Thai food, homewares, and more cafes. A few minutes drive 'north', you can lunch at the "Scarborough Pub", head for Hangglide OZ at Bald Hill Stanwell Park, or picnic in the Royal National Park."

Coledale is about an hours drive south of Sydney and a 20 minutes drive to the city of Wollongong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Comfortable Property We really enjoyed our stay at this address. The place has a lovely bush setting, with the sounds of the creaks and ocean in the background. The accommodation is well presented and very comfortable for four adults. Very good value. We would certainly book again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restful getaway Thoroughly enjoyable and convenient cottage for exploring the south coast. Lovely spot and accommodating owners. Lucky enough to get great weather so spent most of the holiday out and about, so the cottage is small but has everything you need and suspect deliberately doesn't have the things you could live without to make it a true holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful house! Tucked away in a hillside, you're miles from care but minutes from the beach and the shops. The house is well equipped, easy to stay in and the bed is so comfortable!! Contact with the owner was easy and she promptly answered my few questions. I very happily recommend this place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A ten for number eight Spent a relaxing weekend at No 8. The cottage is exactly as described and you really feel tucked into the rain forest. It strikes the perfect balance between character and comfort. Stylishly furnished, but retaining the warmth and personal touches that make you feel immediately at home. Plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to gather with friends or spend time alone, not least of all a beautiful deep bath with a view. A great selection of DVDs, bottle of wine, fresh flowers, milk in the fridge, tea & coffee means you won't need to leave the house in a hurry. And when you do, it is a pleasant walk down the hill, past the station to the rock shelf, baths, beach and a bite to eat. Thanks Nicola (and Ausilia for the local logistics).
