The incredible view with its ever changing landscape of swells and colours

Being able to take your furry friends on holidays - this property is pet safe and friendly

The sun soaked front deck with its soundtrack of waves and seabirds

The colourful interiors filled with original artwork and interesting finds

Knowing if the surf is up from the comfort of your bed

The raw natural beauty of Stanwell Park and its village of quaint shops and cafes

Only 1 hour from Sydney yet it feels like a lifetime away


This home is ideally located just a short stroll down to the beach. It is just a 10 minute walk from the village and yet is peacefully elevated allowing you the best views and giving you complete privacy. A little over an hour from Sydney, Stanwell Park is one of those hidden gems that the locals would like to keep a secret. The beach is famous for being one of Australia's most photographed and once you hit its golden shores you will see why.The beach is surrounded by lush parkland with BBQ areas, undercover seating, a kiosk and a new kid's playground - it is the perfect spot for the whole family to picnic long into the day. The beach is also an off leash area for dogs so the pooch doesn't have to wait at home.Alternatively, take your morning coffee to Bald Hill and watch the hang gliders or paragliders bound over the cliffs like large colourful birds taking flight.Venture further to the Sea Cliff Bridge and walk over for breathtaking views. Climb the Wodi Wodi track to burn off the holiday calories and enjoy some great pub food and wine at the Scarborough hotel to put them back on. Plan a night out in Thirroul for a fancy dinner and a show at Anitas theatre.



This accommodation in Stanwell Park offers an evocative beach house experience with brilliant views, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of space in a character filled home.



The Master Bedroom: Imagine going to sleep lulled by the sound of the waves and waking to the sun rising over the sea with your head still on the pillow. Opening onto the back deck, this room is light filled and airy and features a sumptuous Queen Bed.

Bedroom 2: Features two single beds and is ideal for the kids or for friends.

Bedroom 3: Privately tucked away, this room opens onto the back deck and has a comfortable Queen Bed.

The Studio: offers a huge bedroom with sea views featuring a Queen Bed. It also has its own private lounge room with TV and stereo.

The sitting room:has a comfortable fold out double lounge and is elevated above the main lounge.


The bathroom has a separate shower and tub with a view of the palms. The laundry also has an extra toilet and shower.



The open plan living room has glass doors that seamlessly connect to the front deck and capture the view from the lounge, dining area and kitchen. The lounge room offers a relaxed place to gather and features a TV, DVD player and wood combustion heater for the chilly months.

You are spoilt for choice with dining; choose from the dining room, front deck or the breakfast bar.

A vintage stove that is no match for its modern counterparts you have the choice of 5 burners and 2 ovens, and it even has 2 warming drawers. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle a wide range of cooking from elaborate to modest, so plan to feast.



The open front deck is like a bird nest perch looking out to the sea and is big enough for the family to dine, read, play or just hang. Overlooking a large, lush lawn you can watch over the kids and the view at the same time with a drink in hand and your worries floating away on the breeze.

The back deck offers lots space to sprawl out and a nice view of the garden. Fully enclosed, it is a safe space for kids and pets.



All linen provided Except beach towels

Pets welcome




The sails displayed in the pictures are put up from December - January when the sun is at its hottest. During spring and autumn there can be strong winds in the area causing the sails to tear and also creating a bit of a racket when you are trying to sleep. The main house has one bathroom and the second bathroom is part of the laundry which is accessed from outside through the kitchen door. This is not pictured because it is a bit darker as it is under the house. The studio does not have a bathroom.


The driveway to this property is steep. There is room to turn your car around at the top but if you car has trouble with hills you might want to consider parking it on the street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing house We really enjoyed our stay at The Stanwell Beach Arthouse. We were 8 people in total and didn't feel cramped at all. The Studio at the back is a lovely room and my in-laws loved staying there. The location is great, walking distance to beach and park. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and nice decks front and back for the adults to relax. Very comfortable house. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Location This was an amazing house with Plenty of room for the whole family. We stayed there for our wedding and there was room enough for both my husband and I to get ready and not have to see each other. The separate studio was perfect for this, then we also had a room to ourselves for the special night. After getting ready at the reception centre my husband and I were the last to arrive at the property for the evening and was dark when we got there, but so worth it when we woke in the morning. Amazing views of the beach to wake up to. Plenty of outdoor space for the kids to play. Lovely deck to drink and dine on, and take in the views.
