"You must go There's really not much more to say than that. It's much lovelier than the photos, and has everything you could need. We made multiple trips to the beach with the kids as the beach is just on the doorstep, we cooked dinner on the BBQ, we lit up the fireplace at night, we even played some of the board games in the house. One thing I particularly loved was being able to read a book in bed and see the ocean from the window - ahh the serenity Thank you Anne" From Michelle 2018.
"Wow, what a beautiful place to stay. This is our 4th visit to Culburra Beach and definitely the most beautiful place we have stayed in." Wendy 2018
"Whilst the view is probably one of the best in Culburra Beach and the house was beautifully appointed, the very special thing about Sand Castle was the incredible sense of expanse and privacy we felt with this super large front lawn and our own private path to the beach. Oh how we long to be back in Sand castle" - Bron and Dave, 2016. "
THE SAND CASTLE STORY
SAND CASTLE rises majestically out of the dunes of the Culburra Beach front and enjoys breathtaking and expansive views north to Shoalhaven Heads and south to Penguin Head. Befitting of a beach side sand Castle, its location in the centre of the main beach is one of the best in Culburra for both surf conditions as well as allowing an easy stroll to the Light House at the north end of the beach and Tilbury Cove to the south. SAND CASTLE has direct and easy access to the beach from the front lawn just metres from the lounge room through a gently sloped private track.
SAND CASTLE offers luxury accommodation for up to eight adults or ten people when including children. The perfectly situated north facing home will delight the most discerning traveller. The house provides you with awe inspiring expansive views from the major living spaces as well as bedrooms. Sand Castle will accommodate a couple as comfortably as an extended family including the furry addition to your family. You will walk up the stairs to the lounge and go "WOW
Set on a private and large piece of land with no immediate neighbours to the south, SAND CASTLE has been designed to provide a palatial home for residing in beach-side luxury. The accommodation is a north facing architect designed home that has sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Soaring double height ceilings in the upper lounge with an expanse of windows facing north and east will immerse you in all the elements of beach-side living. Sand Castle has been formed to remain cool in summer and warm in winter whilst allowing you to enjoy the elements in its diverse colours all year-round.
The accommodation with two separate and expansive lounge rooms will make you feel like you are living just as beach-side royalty should. After a leisurely day on the sand retire for cocktails in the upper lounge and enjoy ocean vistas until the star speckled navy sky sets in. Dine in splendour in-door or out and feast on local fresh foods, the ocean scents and quintessentially Australian beach side ambiance. After a memorable feast, retire to the lower lounge for a bit of digital entertainment or one of the many family games available. In winter you might enjoy a hot Toddy whilst contemplating the world through the motions of a gently burning wood fire.
You will continue to feel like beach-side royalty as you retire to premium bedding dressed in designer linen. Ponder the whales, the sunrise and iridescent full moon from each of the four palatial beach facing sleeping abodes. The large King room enjoys expansive Pacific Ocean views from the north and east windows and is serviced by a pristine ensuite bathroom. The Queen room located at the north wing offers sleeping privacy and a tree filtered ocean vista. The third and fourth bedrooms are royally fit and both have a queen bed and a single bed for extra entourage.
SAND CASTLE has three separate sparkling new bathrooms. The Kings room is serviced by an en-suite directly opposite the private dressing room. Appropriately, the Queens room is located right next to the main palatial bathroom. This bathroom includes a separate shower and freestanding bath with superb ocean views filtered through timber shutters - just to keep the paparazzi at bay. Downstairs, the fourth bedroom is serviced by a separate bathroom off the laundry.
The new kitchen, housing European appliances including an induction cook top, double French door refrigerator, large oven and premium dishwasher will delight any cooking staff or if you are travelling without your usual entourage will allow you the opportunity for some ambitious kitchen experimentation.
And we must not forget the Corgies
Whilst your princely four legged friends are welcome throughout the house there is a dedicated outdoor wing that provides a secure yard with an undercover lounging area and access to indoor comforts
