Yellowsands has charm and history. It is essentially unchanged since it was built a century ago. Enjoy its beautiful architecture, generous living spaces and sense of time gone by. It is an easy stroll to the Wamberal beach and lagoon.

The space

Yellowsands has 5 bedrooms, large living room, bay window-seat, 2 verandas, central courtyard, fireplace and generous sized garden. It accommodates up to 8 people.

This early Californian bungalow has been in the same family for nearly a century. Apart from a modern bathroom and kitchen, it is essentially unchanged since it was built. There is a large fireplace to warm the house in winter and sea breezes keep us cool in summer.

Guest access

You will have the house and garden to yourself. It is a self catering holiday, so you will need to bring your own sheets and towels.

Other things to note

It is a kind of time-warp house. Make time to talk, read, play games and share meals. We have no air conditioning, no TV and no dishwasher.

The place is great, very spacious and very close to the beautiful ocean. We really enjoyed being here with our families and would definitely recommend it. Kate has been really cautious in making sure we were happy with the place, and everything was perfect !

Thanks so much, Kate! We had a lovely stay and it's convenient for the beach. Loved the fireplace and cosy living room. Great view from the balcony as well. It's an interesting old historic house with the odd bit of dust but great kitchen, shower etc. Kate is a very responsive and helpful host.

That's great to hear. Keeping an old house maintained is an endless saga, so your enthusiasm and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Gorgeous old house with masses of character. Great beach views from the sunny window seats. Interesting history of Sydney in the old books by the fireplace, and some quirky artwork painted on the walls. The sound of the sea at night! Kate was very kind re arrival and leaving times and answering all our queries.

Kate's place was so nice and had lots of space. She was a helpful easy host and the house was a beautiful place to stay and so close to the beach. Couldn't have been happier.

Kate did a great job of communicating prior to our arrival so everything worked out smoothly. The place is an eclectic look into the past, not for everyone, but we enjoyed its ambiance.

We loved staying at Yellowsands. It has an authentic old-world feel and it's super close to the beach. We enjoyed spending some time slowing down. Kate was friendly and always quick to respond to questions.
