Ryder Flats consists of 3 separate units (please check our other listings on Airbnb if this unit is not available). They are close to great views, restaurants, cafes, beach and family-friendly activities. A short walk away as is the golf club, bowls, tennis, pool, pub, beach, fishing. You won't need a vehicle unless you want to explore the many other beautiful attractions in the region. You’ll love my place because of the great location and the friendly atmosphere the town provides.

Being centrally located most attractions are within a short walk.

South West Rocks Country club is also a short stroll (in the same street) and you can also enjoy a cold beer/wine great meals or if you like there is a coffee shop/meals if you'd prefer something light.

Another great attraction is the ruins of the historic Trial Bay Gaol. The surrounding parkland is a great area for picnics and Trial Bay is a lovely place for a swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach. This area is popular with young families as the water is normally very calm and protected.

    Anne2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous hideaway. This cabin is even better than it looks on Air Bnb, Jacqui and Dallas were great hosts making us feel welcome and were very friendly but also giving us time to enjoy the cabin and pool and relax alone. Their dog Beau was also very friendly. We saw kangaroos feeding in the field just behind the cabin, and lots of birds too. The cabin has an electric bbq and outside table. It was immaculately clean and we had a great stay in South West Rocks! Thanks Jacqui and Dallas!

  • Everything was great and what AMAZING people ❤️ Go there, you’ll have an awesome time.

    Eva2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely accommodation and friendly hosts. The pool was dreamy and Hera my cavoodle loved meeting Beau who was a great doggy host. A visit to the Trial Bay Gaol and Smoky Lighthouse made the stay even more memorable.

    Linda2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • You won’t regret staying here. Great location where you hear the surf and enjoy the wildlife; brilliant all-timber cabin, welcoming hosts.

    Peter2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • To try and find the words to explain how beautiful these two women is so difficult. These two amazing women have created such a beautiful space, filled with so much character and good vibes. This space was such a beautiful break away that we really needed. I earlier read a comment saying how the reviewer didn’t want to tell anyone how great this place was, to try and keep it to themselves. I couldn’t agree more, so let me tell you how awful it was staying here so we try and keep it a secret for our own selfish reasons 😂 In all seriousness you won’t regret staying here I promise, and Beau is just the finishing sparkle to this stay 🐶 💕 DO IT, we promise you won’t regret it! Jacqui and Tahlia :) 🌈

    Jacquelyn2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying with Jacqui and Dallas. The space they've created is beautiful, stylish and perfectly equipped. They've truly thought of everything.. It was a delight to fall asleep with the windows open and the sound of rain outside. Didn't put a dampener (ha!) on our weekend at all! Thank you ladies for your wonderful hospitality. We'll be back when the sun's out to take those bicycles for a spin!

    This cute shipping container house is situated on a 5 acre bush block at the end of a no through road so no traffic to disturb your stay. The cabin is fully self contained, it has outdoor seating so you can sit and take in the fresh air. We are only minutes away from the town of south west rocks. we are close to the lighthouse and surrounding beaches.
    south west rocks is know for its fishing ,surfing, diving. The beauty of Arakoon is you can enjoy the quiet of the bush but also know you are close to everything if needed. I have lived here all my life and think it is a beautiful part of the world and worth a look.
  • Very comfortable and quiet, easy to access cabin. Simple arrival and departure. Enjoyed our stay and was a lovely air bnb to come home to after an adventurous day. Will stay here again if in South West Rocks.

    Anneka2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible tiny house! Great stay for the weekend for my girlfriend and I. Kylie has done a great job on the house and made sure everything you need is there. Close to everything in town too & beautiful puppies on the property! We’ll be back.

  • South West Rocks was a last minute decision on our east coast road trip. Kylie was very quick to respond to our request to stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the cabin, it contains everything you need for your visit to the area and perfectly located. Will definitely be booking Kylie's place again in the future :)

    Anna2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • Great cabin, and Kylie was a great host!

    Ben2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie’s bnb is in a beautiful bush setting and the perfect spot, we loved being a bit out of town but still so close to everything and the beaches. It was very private, Kylie had perfect communication and her beautiful dogs definitely made the stay perfect! Only advice for future guests is if you plan to cook a fair bit I’d suggest bringing whatever extra utensils you need, the basics are there though and we brought whatever extra we needed. Thanks for having us!

    Sherri2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie is a very friendly host, introduced us to her cute cat and dogs. great info on local restaurants. great location, very quiet and comfortable.

  • We stayed here for the night while passing through from Sydney to Gold Coast. It was the perfect place to rest, very quiet and the country club at the end of the street had delicious meals. While the house is retro, it felt really clean and tidy. We all had a great nights sleep and loved exploring this little town.

There is also a beach at Horseshoe Bay near the town centre. Both beaches have areas suitable for swimming and have patrolled sections during the swimming season located near the surf club at South West Rocks. Other beaches – including Back Beach which runs west from South West Rocks to the mouth of the Macleay River and can be accessed by a fantastic footbridge that spans Back Creek. At Arakoon there is the picturesque east facing Little Beach with unpredictable waves & rip currents. Saltwater Creek – which runs from the isolated Saltwater Lagoon out the back of Arakoon to the creek mouth near the surf club at South West Rocks and this is the creek you see from the bridge at the start of the nearby beach access. Trial Bay – has a northerly aspect and is protected much of the time from the ocean swells which come predominantly from the south. Its sheltered waters and sandy beaches make it ideal for relaxation and any number of water activities. It has views of the mountains to the west and views of the receding headlands to the north, even as far as Coffs Harbour on a clear day. It is an ideal spot to see the sunrise over the Trial Bay Gaol ruins or to picnic and watch the sun set over South West Rocks in the evening. It is also great for stargazing at night. An incredibly diverse system of waterways that have been formed the varied meanderings of the nearby Macleay River over the years – including Back Creek, now a tidal estuary (formerly the mouth of the Macleay River) and the Macleay River itself. Back Creek and its tidal estuaries & Saltwater Creek & Saltwater Lagoon offer an incredible array of wetland flora and fauna and can be accessed by canoe when the water levels are suitable. It is also worth floating near the mouth of Back Creek on the incoming tide with a snorkel to view the active aquatic life. All waterways in the area offer a selection of rewarding fishing spots. Marine life is abundant & it is worth keeping an eye out for dolphins, turtles and whales during their migrations. Large schools of fish also visit Trial Bay and on some of these occasions it is fascinating to see the professional beach hauling fishermen using their wooden row boats & nets from the shore to make a living. These fishermen have traditionally put on a free ‘Loaves & Fishes BBQ’ for residents and visitors at the South West Rocks surf club on Good Friday. Walking west - It is an easy walk to all the amenities of South West Rocks and Horseshoe Bay along bike/walking track or via the beach! Why not have a swim along the way and check out the shipwrecks and also the marine and bird life. You can also continue on to the beautiful waterways Back Creek, Back Beach and the Macleay River. Walking east - The bike track or beach will take you to Arakoon, the historic ruins of Trial Bay Gaol, Monument Hill walking track, the beautiful but treacherous Little Beach and access to the National Parks walking trails. Further afield there are challenging walks to Gap Beach and Smoky Cape Lighthouse. Outdoor Recreation Areas including – Beaches, Bike Tracks, Golf Course, Parks, Skate Park, Sports Fields, Swimming Pool, Walking Tracks and more. Cafes & Eateries – locally at South West Rocks, Arakoon & Trial Bay. We have been advised that the best fish & chips in town are from the Horseshoe Bay Kiosk in the park near the surf club, and without a doubt the best ice cream we have tasted comes from Chillati Gelato at 31 Livingstone Street (cash only) the flavours change all the time. Hotels & Clubs – Seabreeze Hotel in town centre (not bad for a meal), South West Rocks Country Club nearby on Phillip Drive and the Riverside Tavern on the Macleay River (the Country Club and Riverside Tavern each have courtesy bus service). The country club also hosts several entertainers, shows & events each month. South West Rocks Cellars in Paragon Street offer good advice and a good selection of wines. Other Places to visit in South West Rocks township – South West Rocks Boatman's Cottage Maritime Museum & visitors information centre (free) and the Craft Centre next door in Ocean Drive.

  • Great place to stay with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Check in was excellent as was the communication from the hosts and location.

    Carla2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Five star. Highly recommend! Enjoyed six nights at Radar. Large living spaces, tastefully styled, well appointed kitchen and spotlessly clean. We are two adults and two children and had room to spare. Young child friendly with baby gate at top of stairs. Modern comforts such as WiFi and Netflix available. Easy check-in with friendly host Tony and great local tips given via interactive map. Thanks! Would love to visit again. Such a naturally beautiful part of the country.

    Angela2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely private yet spacious apartment/house with great amenities and location.

    Geraldine2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely spot for a 2 night stay as we made our way up the coast. The home was beautifully decorated, clean and very spacious! The balcony was a big hit with us too. Great for families and not too far from the beach. Fran was brilliant with her recommendations on the local attractions and restaurants too. We’ll definitely stay here again if we are in the area!

    Gemma2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Fran and Tonys place is always fab. Weve stayed a few times and its always the same. Great setup location and hosts. Highly highly recommend.

    This historic, cosy 2-bedroom cottage is in Arakoon, close to beaches, bush walks, national park, excellent cafés and restaurants, cinema, fishermen's cooperative and shops. South West Rocks at the mouth of the Macleay River has a fishing village atmosphere with country club, golf course, diving, tennis and squash courts. Pet friendly.
    Quaint, old but comfortable cottage. It was one of three built for the warders of Trial Bay Gaol in the 1880s. Peace and tranquility. Pet friendly. Sunny verandah which is gated for safety (and to confine pets, as there are no fences round the property). Piano. Proximity to beaches, walks and national park. (Dogs are allowed unleashed on Trial Bay Beach). Bicycle and kayak. Guest manual lists best cafes, restaurants, walks and markets.
    I love the beaches and general tranquility. I often walk along the beach from Arakoon into the town of South West Rocks, which takes about 45 minutes. The walk over Monument Hill is a must: you'll see wild flowers and whales when migrating. The walk from Little Bay to Gap Beach is stunning. The Fishermen's Coop has very fresh and a wide range of seafood. There are several excellent cafés and restaurants eg Full Circle, Malt and Honey, The Heritage, Thai on the Rocks, The Royal Tandoori Indian, Smoky Cape Retreat, Tasty Treats, The Tavern, The Cantonese Inn, Trial Bay Kiosk and The Rocks Bar and Restaurant at The Rockpool. The markets on the second Saturday of each month at Horseshoe Bay are great.
  • A quirky and creative space, such a great location. Loved watching the storm from the veranda. Dene was a pleasure to deal with.

    Lynne2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dene's place is wonderful! So much character, and so much history. All the furniture matches the cottage perfectly, and the front verandah was the perfect spot for a glass of wine in the evening, and a cup of tea in the morning. We had our dog with us and she loved it too. The walk to Little Bay beach is quick and easy (no dogs allowed in the national Park though obviously), and the beach is stunning.

    Maddie2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was our third or fourth stay so we know what to expect. And this cottage suits us perfectly. Great location near the beach, we can have our dog with no silly restrictions, plus the house has a lovely front garden, old fashioned charm and all necessary amenities (except aircon - which is not necessary because of the solid construction, electric pedestal fans and natural breezy ventilation). There’s even a good coffee machine.

    Peter2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • I have always hoped to find an Airbnb place like Dene’s; Easy to be in, superbly resourced, beautiful both aesthetically and in it’s atmosphere. Like so few other places in the world, we could all fall in the door and find ourselves at home. Which of course means that we could slip straight into holiday mode. Thank you! We rested, we laughed and enjoyed out time together in no small part because of this treasure of a holiday retreat. Also, Dene was an excellent communicator whose generosity shone through immediately. What a host! Thank you again and already looking forward to next time!

    Anna2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay, great access to the national park, plenty of beaches and a short drive into town. The history of the home is fantastic, as is the outlook and peace and quiet.

    John2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I and our two small dogs had a wonderful two week stay at the Warders Cottage in the heart of Arakoon. We enjoyed the relaxed ambiance of the cottage, so full of character with bespoke antique furniture and a well stocked kitchen. Sitting on the front verandah in the morning and evenings was heaven, we spent time watching the beautiful birdlife and kangaroos. It is very close to the dog friendly Trial Bay Beach and the beautiful Gap Beach, and a short drive to the shops at South West Rocks. It was a very relaxing place to stay, rustic and charming, perfect for us and our two dogs!

    Nicole2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely pre-1900s cottage, very clean, lovely balcony with view, excellent kangaroo companions on most days, and a short walk to the ocean beach or the bay beach

    Glenn2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dene is an outstanding host. We were initially concerned we would be unable to reach South West Rocks because of the bushfires. She was so communicative, flexible and understanding. The cottage was our ideal holiday spot. Comfy and characterful and in a beautiful part of the world. Me and my husband, baby and two medium-sized dogs had a lovely weekend. Thanks so much!

  • Karen is a lovely host and we felt good & really welcomed at her place! It felt like home away from home...with an Australian touch. The bed was super comfy and the breakky was enjoyable. We saw most friendly/patient cat and chickens ever. :) Highly recommended if you're traveling through the area!

    Rauno2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Looking for a place to stay for a week or only overnight? We recommend Karen as a very welcoming host, offering fresh laid eggs from her own hens, and the most comfortable bed you’ll find in the area. Clean, airy and private, this place has it all. A very welcome respite during our drive to Brisbane.

    Richard2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This modern home with high security is every animal lover's paradise. Karen and Dec were lovely people and the most welcoming. The place was sparkling clean with thoughtful touches. It has everything you need, from charger to flashlight etc. Karen prepares delicious food. Freshly-laid eggs were heavenly. Thank you for being accommodating to my schedule and so helpful in every way. I'd definitely visit again in the future!

    Escape the stress of modern living and retreat to the lush sub-tropical rainforests of Arakoon. Imagine waking up to the sound of Kookaburras welcoming the new day while you savour your breakfast. What you do with your day is up to you. You could take a walk along the beautiful Trial Bay or perhaps explore the relics of the Trial Bay Gaol built over 100 years ago. Maybe you will venture up to the top of our famous light house to take in the 360 degree views, or you could always just kick back and some enjoy beach, estuary, or offshore boat fishing. Experience surfing along the kilometres of pure sand that make our beaches amongst the best on the East Coast of Australia. There are 3 bedrooms available to you. The first room is the blue room (ocean room) and has a queen bed, television etc. the second room is the African room and also has a queen bed in it and television set. The third bedroom has a double bed and television. These share a large bathroom across the hall. There is also an ensuite room off the common room which has a king bed and this bed can be separated into 2 king singles should this be required. This room is slightly dearer at $115.00 per night with it's private bathroom. A bbq is outside for your use or the typical ozzie bbq. We look forward to you coming and sharing our part of South West Rocks and experience the beautiful area we have to offer. Our place is unique in that it is so peaceful a surrounding with the birdlife to relax too and a new swimming pool to enjoy.
    Space to breathe and not be disturbed by close neighbours.
  • Had a wonderful, although very brief stop here overnight. Joy was such a great host with everything thought of. The house and gardens are beautiful and Barney the dog is a very charming fellow.

    Larissa2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a relaxing time away at Fay and David’s place. Pictures don’t do it justice. Beds are so comfy and the ocean breeze that flows through the apartment is great. There is a supermarket below the apartment that sells everything and the beach is only a 2min walk away. All security screens were lockable with a key on the balconies so it gave us that extra peace of mind with young children. Would recommend this place to anyone.

    Brad2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie’s place is amazing. Whether it’s a girls weekend away or a family holiday you will not regret booking the pool house. Pools amazing with a large sandstone rock you can sun bake on! Fresh farm eggs that we could collect in the morning, horses for the kids to feed. There was 2 TV’s. A Wii for the kids, Netflix, plenty of places you can hide with a book. Fishing off the jetty if you want. And the list goes on. Loved it!

    Sue2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We would highly recommend anyone staying at Kylie and Glenn’s pool house. It’s such a picturesque location right near the river with a big pool which is beautifully landscaped, and spacious, modern interiors of the (very big!) pool house. It’s only a 5 minute drive into town, so very close to a number of beaches, the river and the shops. Our family loved the chickens (& their eggs!), nearby horses and Bluey the dog. Kylie and Glenn are great hosts giving you plenty of privacy but available to chat and offer suggestions when needed. They were so welcoming and thoughtful, even preparing us fresh and marinated mud crabs from the river for our dinner one night. An unforgettable experience! We’d go back in a heart beat and hope to book again next year.

    Jodie2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kylie and Glenn were the perfect hosts, they’ve set the pool house up perfectly for family farm stays, we felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay immensely especially the warm pool and Glenn’s mud crabs. We’d love to stay again!

    Rene2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

  • We just spent the weekend at the pool house. Everything was amazing. It was modern, stylish & had everything we needed. The location of the house is a few minutes drive from south west rocks, which has some great cafes & gorgeous beaches. Our hosts Glen & Kylie made us feel so welcome & comfortable to use their property. Their kids are gorgeous & friendly too. Being able to take our dog with us was such a bonus. We can’t wait to go again for another holiday at the Pool house.

    This artist barn/studio is located on a property only 5 minutes from South West Rocks stunning beaches & natural surrounds.
    Located in the lush natural landscape of Arakoon. South West Rocks village is 5 minutes drive away and Coles is close by to get supplies.
  • What a darling place! Quirky, warm and welcoming, unlike anywhere I've stayed before. Super quiet (apart from the lovely rain on the roof) and the family of local kangaroos were a treat to watch through the windows. Great kitchen setup, and very comfy all around. Definitely one to return to!

    Jacqueline2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about it the moment we drove in. The space is very comfy with its own special character. We felt at home straightaway. The host was very friendly and down to earth. We came back within 6 months, and quite possibly we'll visit again in the next year.

    Corrie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely, large space. I thoroughly enjoyed just hanging out there. I stayed in the hottest time of the year but the ceiling fans were perfect! Well loved and cared for :)

    Yvette2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte and Kim’s place was exactly what I was looking for - for a solo weekend away from Sydney. The barn is beautifully set up, open and light filled, and is surrounded by native bush land. The location is perfect - a short drive from town and beautiful beaches within the national park. Kim was there to welcome me when I arrived and showed me around - and both he and Charlotte were happy to give me a hand with anything I needed. I had the most wonderful time here and highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet escape in a beautiful part of the east coast. Will be booking again soon!

    Coral2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Most amazing three days! Waking up to the sound of kookaburras and falling asleep to the sound of rain on the metal roof, such a good city break and the most relaxing few days I’ve had in a really long time. Kim was such a good host, showing us around and giving us lots of local tips. The place itself is quirky and has all the little great touches that make you feel at home. It’s in the perfect spot, private and quiet but still 5 minutes from the beach. We had the best time and could not recommend this place more.

    Maddison2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the barn retreat, as did our dogs, and none of us wanted to leave. It is a good sized place with plenty of room and great value for money. If you want all the mod cons it might not be for you, but it has everything you need to be comfortable. The toilet is composting, there are plenty of spider friends and other bugs that visit, and the mosquito nets over the bed are handy at night. We found the bed too short for my 6ft partner and so we slept on the "day bed" because it didn't have the bed frame. Kitchen is well equipped with stove top, convection microwave and oven, and small dishwasher. It is not fenced outside so we kept our dogs on the lead (they were very interested in the kangaroos) and took them for walks around the neighbourhood. There is a dog friendly beach a few minutes drive away. The hosts who live on the same property were very friendly and accommodating, bringing us rainwater for drinking and making sure we had everything we needed. We hope to come back again!

    Sam2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic and interesting spot filled with inspiring artwork . Perfect spot to get creative juices flowing ~ immersed in nature :) . A full size bed would be great as the bed is very short even for average person and no wifi (but we didn’t need it ) . Host is the loveliest , will definitely be back !

    Welcome to our piece of paradise that is conveniently located half way between Sydney and Brisbane, making it the perfect place to break your trip, relax and recharge your batteries. Sarana is a self contained studio attached, but completely separate from the family home. Boasting luxury fittings, such as a free standing bath, queen size bed, full bathroom and a view to die for. Breaky foods supplied. All cooking is done on your private deck. Weber BBQ, hot plates etc with outside sink.
    We have the very best of beach and bush. Enjoy the serenity of no traffic, birdsong and listen to the waves lull you to sleep. We are a rural property and have 5 acres and are horse friendly. Bring your horses and enjoy beach riding only 10 minutes from home. One of lifes great joys. Great bush riding as well.
    We are a rural property that offers a luxury getaway for couples only. We are not fenced and have a dam on the property, so we are not suitable for children. New borns are very welcome. Sit back and enjoy the amazing views and wildlife, from the privacy of your deck, or sitting around the fire pit or soaking in the full bath with a wine. We see wallabies on the front grass, most days. Bird life is also abundant. All this with a number of pristine beaches close by, within a five minute drive.
  • Jenny’s place should be an Airbnb plus!!! The views are stunning and the attention to detail is something I’ve never seen in any other place I stayed. Sparkling clean, great amenities, comfortable, beautiful! Chocolate, candles, fairy lights, bath bombs, many breakfast items to chose from... it was just perfect! We sadly only got to stay one night but I’m hoping we can make it back soon enough. Highly recommend!

    'A Little Getaway' is just that, a special little place to get away from it all and enjoy the simple pleasures on NSW's North Coast. It is a perfect space for a small family, or group of friends to relax for a few days to a few weeks. The decor is fresh, nostalgic and perfectly in vibe with the heavenly South West Rocks area. Walk to Back Creek, Horse Shoe Bay and the centre of town. 5 mins drive to Trial Bay Goal or Arakoon National Park. Convenient stop off between Sydney and Byron Bay.
    A cosy and simple layout for a family, which takes guests back to the simple holidays of the past.
    For such a small town, the area of South West Rocks is pumping with beaches and natural beauty. From the tidal fun at Back Creek, to catching waves at Horse Shoe Bay, and leisurely walks along the Main Beach to Trial Bay Gaol, where there is endless fun in stand up paddle boarding, beach cricket and fishing spots galore. It is common to see kangaroos, goannas and even echidnas and koalas in the area. Gorgeous photos by the very talented Paul from webinkstudio@gmail.com
  • Great parking for boats and access to local water based activities.

    Ryder Flats consists of 3 separate units (please check our other listings on Airbnb if this unit is not available). They are close to great views, restaurants, cafes, beach and family-friendly activities. A short walk away is the golf club, bowls, tennis, pool, pub, beach, fishing. You won't need a vehicle unless you want to explore the many other beautiful attractions in the region. You’ll love my place because of the great location and the friendly atmosphere the town provides.
    Unit 3 is fully self contained. It consists of a newly renovated bedroom (new queen bed) with b/in wardrobe and side tables. The kitchen has been completely renewed with all the facilities incl. oven, jug, toaster, fridge and microwave, cutlery, crockery etc. The newly renovated lounge/dining area has a pull out double sofa lounge, a flat screen TV, fan and heater. The retro bathroom has a shower, toilet and pedestal hand basin (renovation to be carried out in the near future). The unit is clean, tidy, recently repainted, is well presented offering a comfortable holiday option whilst still being affordable and relaxing. There is an outdoor setting situated on the front covered verandah and at the rear of the property there is a large undercover communal BBQ area. A communal laundry area with 2 washing machines is situated adjacent to the BBQ area. There is plenty of room on the front lawn for your car and boat.
    Being centrally located most attractions are within a short walk. This is what makes staying here so attractive and relaxing as you could walk to the town for a coffee, some shopping, a cold beer/wine at the local pub, swim at the glorious Horseshoe Bay or Main Beach and come home to a good old back yard Aussie BBQ !!!! South West Rocks Country club is also a short stroll (in the same street) and you can also enjoy a cold beer/wine great meals or if you like there is a coffee shop/meals if you'd prefer something light. You can also stroll to the magnificent 18 hole golf course, the bowling green, the tennis courts and the public pool all situated at the Country Club. There is a supermarket a short drive away. Another great attraction is the ruins of the historic Trial Bay Gaol. The surrounding parkland is a great area for picnics and Trial Bay is a lovely place for a swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach. This area is popular with young families as the water is normally very calm and protected.
  • This place was very comfortable and walking distance to beautiful beaches and delicious food.

    Jed2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of the more special Airbnbs I've stayed in. The setting in the forest is so beautiful, the space is very stylishly done, and there's so many small touches to make you feel comfortable and at home. Breakfast was also delicious with some very entertaining antics by the local birds. No request is too much for Catherine, she's so willing to help with anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Definitely recommend, and hopefully get to come back one day!

Common areas have cake, tea, coffee and breakfast to help yourself, which is a lovely touch. Joy is welcoming and lovely. We were quite late to arrive and she was there to greet us and show us around, which was lovely. All was easy and comfortable. Will return again and highly recommend. :)

  • We stayed for an extra few days and we were so glad that we did as Joy and Damien (and Barney) were perfect hosts. We feel that we were so fortunate to have come to this part of the world and will never forget our stay. Thank you both so very much. Xx

  • What a wonderful, wonderful place to stay! Joy and Damien are superb hosts - so very kind, warm and fun and Barney is a wonder dog... From the fresh cakes every day and lovely comfy bed to the bush tucker tales and swimming and fishing, we absolutely loved our time in such a perfect part of the world and with such a lovely family. We did not want to leave. Thank you so so much, we will come and stay for weeks next time! xx

  • A lovely place in a gorgeous and peaceful setting. You won't be disappointed!

    Erica2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Joy and Damians place is an amazing place to unwind. It was so nice to be outside of the town centre and be right in the nature. Joy and Damian were fantastic hosts who went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, whether it be with local tips or driving us to otherwise inaccessible areas. Plus Barney the pooch is great to have around. We recommend staying here and for a few nights too. Thanks joy and Damian!!
