Three bedroom house with pizza oven
About Michelle O'Dowd
Living and growing up in Sydney has given me a unique appreciation of city living. It's also made me realise that sometimes you just need to escape from the hassle and bustle to somewhere where you can just hear the birds singing and the waves lapping. Patonga is just that place for me and my family. With only 220 homes, we are happy to share this small piece of paradise with family, friends and our guests.
Michelle O'Dowd purchased this House in 2012
Why Michelle O'Dowd chose Patonga
My husband, daughter and I fell in love with Patonga about ten years ago. My dad has been fishing there for over 25 years and has always raved about it. So 6 years ago we decided to buy a cottage where we could get away from Sydney on the weekends. We've taken years to renovate it with the help of family and friends and are very happy with the results. The decor is distinctly beachy with a comfortable light and airy feel. An outdoor BBQ and fully equipped kitchen with basic supplies like pepper, salt, tomato sauce, oil, vinegar, glad wrap, foil, hand towel, etc. means that you can cook at home or stroll up to the Patonga Beach Hotel for a fantastic meal or just coffee and cake. There's also bikes for you and the kids and a kayak to keep you busy at either the beach or the creek.
What makes this House unique
Our beach house boasts a fantastic deck and pizza oven which is probably the highlight of every holiday we spend there. Our family and friends always insist on pizza which gets everyone involved in the preparation, cooking and of course eating. Patonga is amazingly beautiful and being only 90 mins from Sydney, it is completely doable for a relaxing weekend or a longer stay.

This is a charming little home with a large deck, patio, and back yard. The kitchen had every amenity (plus more) that one needs to make a variety of meals. The pizza oven was delightful. It is only a block from the ocean in a sleepy little beach village. The bedrooms were perfect with cozy beds and plenty of blankets for chilly nights. We had a family of 4 (two adults/two kids) and we felt right at home. The kids loved the collection of games to play. We enjoyed our stay and wish we were able to stay longer.
Comfortable beach house, great location.
Great and comfortable beach house, very well equipped with everything you may need for a getaway. Responsive and friendly host, made booking the stay very easy.
Great house, perfect location
Our short stay was made all the more perfect by the thought put into providing an environment where every little detail was considered. Thank you Michelle. We had a great time. Our dog loved the beach and we loved being close to all Patonga has to offer.
Loved staying here .
The Family loved the pizza oven..and the house was kitted out with everything you need...took a little while to work out how to use the key box but it was 9pm when we arrived but once we figured it out after that it was easy..would definitely stay again
A little bit of paradise
Patonga is a hidden paradise. We floated down the river with the tide, we fossicked on the beach, we kayaked on the peaceful river with the sound of nature, we walked the bush track to Pearl Beach and then returned to the peaceful backyard of The Beach House, put our feet up and chilled out. The children, the dog and the adults were all very happy. And of course we had the odd wine at the pub who also serve a great meal. We will definitely be back
Comfy and homely beach cottage, perfectly located between beach and creek
My family spent 2 nights here and it was perfect. The cottage comes with everything you need to explore and enjoy the area - beach kayaks, fishing rods, bikes, buckets & spades. The beds are super comfy with soft linen. The highlight was the pizza oven and sitting outside on the terrace by candelight, enjoying drinks with my visiting brother while my two sons played outside in the paddling pool and on the swings. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
