Beachfront Wollongong Apartment in Minnamurra with kitchen
Guests are welcome to have a complimentary late check-out of 5:00 PM on Sundays providing there is no back-to-back booking. Please inquire with our team at the time of booking. The Villa is the closest property to the ocean at the dazzling Minnamurra River mouth, backing onto a hidden sandy beach across a grassy verge. Swim across the estuary to secluded Mystics Beach, walk the beach between the ocean and the National Park. Only 1.5 hours south of Sydney, tranquil Minnamurra yet a world away from the city life. From the living room, watch the tides change and the weather roll along the coast and the waves crash on rocky Rangoon Island. Laze in the sun, play with the kids at low tide in the warm and shallow waters around the sandbank, paddleboard, kayak, or go fishing. Across the estuary, secluded Mystics Beach is backed by National Park bushland: a delight for long beach or bush walks, surfing and swimming. In the Villa: full central heating for cosy winter nights; extensive book collection for curling up on sofas; games for the kids; smart TV; well equipped and attractive kitchen with gas stove - dream on the view while you cook!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful location
We enjoyed this lovely place and looking out at the water. - fantastic views from the deck. The kitchen was well equipped except bring your own coffee machine because they only have a plunger when they said a coffee machine was there. The general amenities were good - only one shower in the second bathroom. The other one was a bath and toilet. Great linen and comfortable beds. The living area was lovely and the outside deck with retractable blind was perfect. Would recommend this lovely place and return.
