About our home

Our house is on the corner of two quiet streets on a sandy point between the dramatic ocean beach of Umina and tranquil Ettalong Beach, where Brisbane Water meets the sea in New South Wales, Australia. Seven minutes’ walk in either direction brings you to a beach with stunning views of the coastline, the surrounding bush-covered hills, and the Pacific. Also within walking distance are delightful seaside towns with a relaxed, holiday atmosphere. Our light-filled, well-furnished house sits in a landscaped, self-irrigated garden. The air-conditioned large kitchen/dining room connects with an extensive, roofed patio for outdoor living. Two north-facing double bedrooms accommodate two couples with ease and a trundle bed is stored in the second room. The third bedroom has bunks for two. The extensive living area, lined with bookshelves, holds a piano, TV, sound system and cosy gas fire. There is a bathroom with shower and WC, and a second WC in the laundry. There is a garage for car and bicycle, with remote access. We’re connected to telephone and WiFi
