About this property

Southview - Boutique Guest House (Garden Suite)

Family-friendly Wollongong guesthouse in Bulli with outdoor pool
Southview is a boutique holiday accommodation which offers two fully self contained suites, the Seaview suite and Garden suite. We also offer our StopOver room, a room only with ensuite. All rooms are private within our family home, nestled between Sandon Point Beach and Bulli Beach, just one hour drive south of Sydney. Please note the accommodation is not the whole house. It has been rated four stars by AAA Tourism.

For a couple that want to escape then Southview is the perfect place for you to unwind and relax. Your holiday destination offers a relaxed atmosphere. It's just a 2 minute walk to Sandon Point beach and a close walk along the beach to Bulli beach.

Catch the beautiful sunrise over the ocean or perhaps a surf at Sandon Point beach which is listed as one of an Australian top surfing break. Enjoy a coastal walk or perhaps a bike ride along the beach track which goes to Wollongong and beyond. Cafes by the beach and Bulli beach pool are close by. Explore national park or local bushland, or simply chill out by our heated spa plunge pool.

Bulli is approximately an hour’s drive south of Sydney airport and is 15 minutes north of the Wollongong CBD. Originally established as a coal mining town in the 1850s, Bulli is also known as the "Black Diamond District". It is a historic part of the Northern Illawarra that enjoys pristine sunshine.
