Peninsula is located in the quiet seaside village of Currarong, which is situated on the Beecroft Peninsula and is part of the Jervis Bay Marine Park.
Peninsula sits on the beautiful Currarong Creek with direct access to the water and sweeping views over the creek, beaches and mountains. The creek is the perfect area for kids to swim or play on the sand. The house is ideal for 2 families and has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It can comfortably sleep 8 adults and can cater for an extra 2 children on trundle beds if needed (maximum of 10 guests). Quality linen (sheets, doonas, pillows and bath towels) is provided. Apologies but we do not allow pets at the property.
Location & Attractions
Experience the ultimate in seaside holidays. Currarong is a 2.5 hr drive from Sydney. As the house faces west it is protected from the regular summer north-east winds, instead receiving gentle breezes. At high tide the water is beautifully clear and you can see the fish swimming by from the balcony. On low tide you can play on the sand, have a game of beach cricket or touch football. Alternatively you can take a short stroll to the kids playground or go for a walk along beautiful Warrain beach which goes for 14km.
A short drive will take you to the nearby Honeymoon Bay and Long Beach which are some of the most secluded and beautiful beaches on Jervis Bay. Or take a walk around the Point Perpendicular Lighthouse which has expansive views over Jervis Bay.
There is excellent fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving in the area. You can enjoy kayaking, windsurfing, surfing or swim in the famous rock pool. There are 2 kayaks available for your use during your stay. There are many bushwalks that lead from Currarong (mainly from Bosom Beach) including a walk to see the SS Merimbula ship wreck.
Everything in Currarong is in walking distance. Just up the road from Peninsula are the local shops which include a general store, newsagent and Zac's seafood or you can walk to the Currarong Bowling Club. If you feel like something a bit more active there are the local tennis courts which can be hired.
Peninsula is a modern near new home that still has that beach house feel. It has open plan living, with 2 leather lounges, an 8 seater leather and timber dining table, an inside day bed and a large outdoor day bed perfect for reading a book or relaxing and enjoying the expansive views. There is a large veranda with BBQ and outdoor setting to enjoy your dinner and watch the sun set over the water, a rare treat on the east coast of Australia.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and stove, and there is a wet bar for enjoying a drink after a day in the sun and sand. There is an LCD TV (with Austar) and DVD player in the lounge room and an Ipod dock.

There is reverse cycle air-conditioning in the open plan dining/lounge area and in both the king bedrooms. You will also appreciate the outside hot and cold shower to wash the sand off before going inside.
