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.



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

The proximity to the beach, rock pools and Coledale 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 privacy of 3 full bathrooms

The pervading soundtrack of the waves and sea birds 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 getaway 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 under foot.   A long leisurely and delicious lunch can be had at Chedo’s an institution known for fresh ingredients prepared well while the Cellar next door stocks an impressive range of  wines to match.  Retail therapy can be claimed at Earth Walker an eclectic homewares and fashion boutique.  Or you may choose to simply go back in time (if only a short way) with a swag of DVD’s 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 stops at Mt Kiera to the take in the views, or to the Minnamurra rainforest or the Nan Tien Temple.



That easy peaceful feeling that only the sea air and south coast sunshine can provide – while being surrounded by the beauty of its architecture and interiors.

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 location Serenity is a nice house in a great location, listening to the sound of the waves at night is very relaxing. A couple of things need addressing though, the lounges are quite old and very uncomfortable, as is the upstairs double bed. There also is a bad smell in the downstairs on suite bathroom which I think is coming from the drain. Besides this the house is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we could want We had a fantastic weekend here. The house was great, and so well stocked with everything we could need, and the location couldn't be better. We are definitely planning on making this a regular get away at Serenity.
