If you and your family and friends are looking for a classic beach getaway or holiday -- a friendly, lived-in house, beautiful near-deserted beaches, and a near-by patch of peaceful bush -- then this is the place for you We are the original Congo Beach House.

It's our getaway place too -- intimate enough for us to enjoy a quiet weekend, but large enough for our extended family to come together and enjoy themselves, without getting on top of each other.

The house is 50 metres from the National Park and a 2-minute walk max to any of Congo's three beaches. See the aerial photo for our location.

It is set on a well fenced quarter-acre block, with lots of lawn for kids to play on. There are well established trees on the west side that offer shade from the summer sun.

This 250 sq metre, two-story double brick and timber house is substantial It is north-facing, with a veranda that wraps itself half way round the upper level. Recently we have added decks to the east and west sides, great for outdoor dining and sunning.

Our electricity and hot water are both solar-powered.

Where is Congo?

Congo lies just 8 km southeast of Moruya on NSW's beautiful South Coast. It's about two hours by car from Canberra and four hours from Sydney.

Congo is a small hamlet of about 100 houses -- no shops -- surrounded by the Eurobodalla National Park on three sides and the ocean on the other. It's like the beach used to be.

Congo is well known for its beaches and fishing. Congo Creek is ideal for some relaxed fishing and canoeing. Its tidal beach is great for younger children.

On one side of Congo Point is a relatively sheltered and calm swim beach. The other side has a longer beach renowned for its surf. You can fish from the beach, rocks, or underwater for salmon, bream or tailor. Or you can just walk along the beaches and into the adjacent National Park.

A particularly nice feature of these beaches is that you cannot see any houses from them - this coastline is really wild and undisturbed.

The house

The house itself is comfortable and well set up for families or groups of up to 12.

The upper level offers: a large 50 sq m open plan kitchen, dining, lounge area and sun room; as well as 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

The kitchen is well equipped, with a large walk-in pantry and dishwasher.

The lounge has an HD TV, DVD/VCR, and a radio/CD player.

Sliding glass doors open out onto the veranda. There is a gas BBQ and another large dining table on the west deck.

The wood-panelled master bedroom has its own east-facing balcony and ensuite bathroom.

All bedrooms upstairs have queen or double beds.

There is also a second bathroom with bath, shower and separate toilet.

The lower level comprises a large bunkhouse area, an even larger Games Room, plus a laundry and bathroom with shower and toilet.

There's also another HD TV, DVD, and VCR downstairs -- a great place to send the kids if the adults are looking for some time on their own.

The Games Room features a pool table and table tennis, along with a selection of games and puzzles.

The laundry has a washer and dryer.

We've also installed an outdoor shower -- perfect for rinsing you and the kids off after a session on the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best house on the South Coast If you are looking for a family beach holiday, then the Original Congo beach house is the place for you. The beach is literally a 2 minute walk away. Its an unbelievable location, surrounded by lush trees and plenty of birds and we also saw the odd Wallaby on our walk to the beach. We stayed with a family of 5 and had an absolutely superb holiday. The house is huge and could easily accomodate a family of 15 or more. The house was comfortable and well appointed. The Kitchen and dining facilities were excellent. All the cooking utensils and appliances are there ready to go. There was nothing we needed that wasn’t there in the house. The games room downstairs was a great spot for the kids in between visits to the beach and fishing the Moruya River. The Outdoor shower after the beach or fishing was also great. We will definately stay again and would recommend to anyone to take their family and friends and stay and relax for a week. Hilary and Gary were very pleasant to deal with and were responsive on email or text if we had any questions about the property or local area. 10 out of 10 !!! Thankyou!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic house Our stay at Congo was wonderful. The house was perfect for our extended family, and had enough to keep everyone entertained. Congo is a beautiful, secluded hamlet, but the shops are just a few minutes away if required. A perfect place to spend a holiday at the beach!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good family weekend The house was great for our family (self, wife, five of our mostly grownup children, daughter in law and two grandsons), especially with the games room downstairs, there's enough room to spread out but still all be together. Congo is nice and quiet and has a lovely beach which is only a couple of minutes away from the house so you can pop backwards and forwards between the beach and the house if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family beach house We stayed for a long weekend and had a great time. We loved the feel of the place - clearly a place where families come happily together. Don't expect a marble kitchen and Miele appliances, but bring family and friends and have a great time with kids playing table tennis, pool and Fussball downstairs while the grown ups relax upstairs after a walk on the incomparably beautiful beach.
