Poised on the waterfront this beautiful retro inspired beach house takes in spanning ocean views outside, while inside is a mix of eclectic homewares and artworks. Spread over two levels it is light filled and fresh, comfortably sleeping, 8 guests. The downstairs back door leads out to a lush lawn and then the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. A perfect year round getaway offering a cool breeze and the beach in summer and a warm fire and spectacular vista in the winter. Serenity has even been featured on the Traveller website with glowing reviews.


The uninterrupted views and spotting whales, dolphins or simply watching the swell

The proximity to the beach, rock pools, ocean poolandColedale village which are only a few minutes walk away

The retro furniture, homewares and artworks that have been discerningly collected and curated

Comfortably sleeping 8 and the convenience and privacyof 3 full bathrooms

The pervading soundtrack of the waves and seabirds creating a truly peaceful and serene atmosphere


Coledale still holds that age old charm of a seaside village. With only a scattering of shops and not yet invaded by a throng of cafes it offers a chance to truly get away and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Like the pleasures of a day spent exploring the rock pools with its scuttling crabs, mini-aquariums and the feel of moss and the sea underfoot. A long leisurely and delicious lunch can be had at Chedos an institutionknown forfresh ingredients prepared well while the Cellar next doorstocks an impressive range of wines to match. Retail therapy can be claimed at Earth Walker an eclectic homewares and fashion boutique or spoil yourself in the new Earthwalker cafe and gourmet grocer. Or you may choose to simply go back in time if only a short way with a swag of DVDs and caramel popcorn from the DVD store. The pace of Coledale is slow and a holiday here will ensure that you match its relaxed vibe.

If you need a little excitement Thirroul with its hipster coffee shops and posh boutiques is a mere 5-minute drive, while even bigger city delights will greet you in Wollongong. It is also a perfect base for day trips to the Sea Cliff Bridge, Sublime Point and the Royal National Park to the north. Head south for stopsat Mt Kiera to the take in the views, or to the Minnamurra rainforest or the Nan Tien Temple. Discover more about Coledale here.

The backyard of this home is not fenced, the neighbours along Coledale Avenue maintain an open garden design so that the sea can be viewed at its best. However, guests are asked to stay within the grounds of the property and use only the amenities of the house. The back garden also leads directly into the ocean and so this property is not suitable for families with pre-school aged children.

Car Spaces

Incredibly located; this home has the sea as is backyard and offers stunning views

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great view of beach =) Beautiful spot. Lovely inside and out, alot of great spots to sit and relax. Only we wish the windows were cleaned for us even a bit, but easily done with hot water from kettle (right on beach expected salt but). Suggest some sort of music player (we forgot). Beds comfy and warm. Clean house, people had left open food in fridge jars, so we threw it out. Such interesting art and quirky furniture. Nice weekend. Thank you. Loved the app!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Stunning Stunning!! We holidayed as two families with 3 kids combined.The property is styled to perfection (a few changes have been made since these pictures were taken). If we were not entranced by the view we were looking at the styling and beautiful art works. The location is second to none with the property flowing out to a great grass area for the kids to play on then onto the rocks and ocean. The view was beyond words and the house was so comfortable. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. I highly recommend a stay at this gorgeous property if you can.
