Mar-Lins Beach House has a HUGE 63 sq. metres combined lounge/dining room giving you all the space you need for a relaxing holiday. Outside this room is a 22 sq. metre deck with extra seating, BBQ and shade sails. In the large backyard we have a kid's cubby house/play fort and swing set.
Please note you are dealing direct with the owners, not with third parties so the only commission you will pay is the HomeAway "service fee".
Our calendar is always 100 accurate and up to date so you can book with confidence if the dates you require are shown as available. The only time this would not occur is if we receive simultaneous booking requests, but in practice this is very rare.
We have never "double booked" and would never ever consider cancelling a confirmed booking to accept a "better offer".
Discounts are available for bookings of 7 nights or more. The discounted price will be calculated automatically when you book.
We have a fully equipped kitchen with near new cooking utensils, coffee plunger please BYO coffee grounds, appliances and dishwasher.
The laundry has a washing machine and new dryer.
There is a 6 burner entertainers BBQ on the back deck.
There are 2 bathrooms, one with a 3 person spa bath. Also an ipod docking station, a DVD & CD player to keep you entertained. There is a 50" TV in the living room and a smaller one in the main bedroom. For the littlies we have a complimentary high chair and portable cot.
All inside rooms were repainted in December 2017 giving the house a fresh modern look. All soft furnishings and decor were replaced at the same time. Updated photos are now included on this web-site.
All beds are made up with doonas and pillows. There are blankets in the cupboards. The only items you need to bring are linen sheets and pillow cases and towels, both for the bathroom and the beach.
The house is available all year round including winter where we have gas heating. For summer there are ceiling fans in all four bedrooms, also in the dining and lounge rooms. Most summer days we get great north-easterly breezes through the northern and eastern windows.
The house is approximately 2 hours by car from Sutherland, 1½ hours from Wollongong City and 2¾ hours from Canberra via Nerriga.
Check in is anytime after 3 pm, and for your extra convenience you can stay until 11 am on the day of check-out.
There is a preferred two night minimum stay for our property at all times. At the owner's discretion we will consider one night bookings on payment of an additional amount, not exceeding $100, to be advised at the time of booking.
The house is in King George St, only one street back from the beach. It's only a short 260 metres, 3 minute walk to an uncrowded, child friendly beautiful beach on Jervis Bay where you can often see the dolphins. See the Google earth screen shot, included with our house photos, showing the closeness to the beach
Note - Dogs are allowed on beach off leash during certain times.
There is a small take-away shop in Callala Beach itself. There are tennis courts for hire near the beach.
Club Callala in Callala Beach Road has bowling and golf, also a bistro open 6 days, and a courtesy bus.
Only a few minutes away by car in Emmett Street Callala Bay there is a small shopping centre with IGA supermarket, liquor cellar, butcher, baker, chemist, couple of cafes, pizza place, hairdresser, gift & beachwear and post office.

We love dogs and they are very welcome at Mar-Lins Beach House. We ask that you bring bedding for your dog to sleep on and that if they want to sit on the furniture that you bring suitable protective materials with you. Also we ask that you pick up and dispose of your dog’s droppings before you leave - to make the yard nice and clean for our next guests.
