About our home

Our exceptionally colourful holiday home comprises of a collection of pieces picked up on our travels around the world and reflects our nomadic lifestyle - particularly in South Asia and the Middle East. It was originally our main home, but now that we are based predominantly in Canberra or overseas, it has been 'promoted' to our retreat.

The house has three large bedrooms - all three with queen/double beds. There is room to sleep perhaps up to two more children (a sofa bed arrangement) in the TV room. We can offer a pool/games room, large spa bath, large sitting and entertainment area, balcony with leafy views and a variety of colourful bird-life to hand feed. On occasion, our back yard is visited by very shy echidnas and wallabies (of the kangaroo family).

Our home backs on to Jervis Bay National Park and is a 500m walk to the pristine and dazzling white sands of Greenfields and Blenheims Beaches. Hyams Beach (which is recorded as having the whitest sands in the world) is only a 10-15 minute walk away along a coastal bush track.

Jervis Bay is especially famous for its unique marine life, therefore scuba and snorkeling are favourite pastimes here. We can offer basic snorkeling gear for your use and also recommend nearby PADI dive shops in Huskisson for more advanced Scuba gear. Whale and dolphin watching tours are regularly run from nearby Huskisson and Booderee National Park is approximately 20 minutes by car.

WIFI is now available here. Trains from Sydney to Bomaderry (Nowra) several times daily and local buses from there to Vincentia (20-30 minutes away) are available - otherwise car rental is probably the best option - and a cleaning service can also be provided during your stay if necessary, however we can discuss these things when we liaise!

Where is it?


Located in the stunning NSW south coast region, Jervis Bay is a marine and nature reserve teeming with native Australian birds and wildlife surrounded by white, sandy beaches. Vincentia is a small village close to Huskisson, and is a relaxing get-away destination for those who like to be close enough to cafe/bar culture, but far enough away to enjoy the peace of the Australian bush. There's a range of activities for all ages in the area, from strolling on the beach, water activities, bushwalking or simply enjoying the sounds of the ocean.

Buzzy restaurants
Huskisson has an extensive range of cafes and restaurants catering for all tastes.
Cool bars
The family friendly Husky Pub is popular for its sunny terrace dining overlooking the bay.
Cozy cafés

Bit of culture
Indigenous Australian cultural bushwalks and tours
Walks in the park
Bushwalkers are very well catered for in and around Jervis Bay!
Spot of exercise
Runs and walks along the beach at sunrise (or sunset for those nightowls!) Jervis Bay is a Marine Reserve and is very popular for divers (grey nurse sharks, dolphins, whales, seals as well as an abundance of fish life).
Day tripping
