The space

My place has open farmland, vineyard and mountain views. We are near Coolangatta Winery and only 5 minutes to Seven Mile beach, the Shoalhaven River and about 15 minutes to the historic township of Berry. Approximately 15 minutes to both Gerroa and Nowra and half an hour to either Kiama or Kangaroo Valley. 4 large bedrooms with built in robes and ceiling fans. Main bedroom with en-suite. A very peaceful place with views to Coolangatta Mountain and farmland. A well equipped kitchen and laundry. Wide corridor suitable for wheelchairs

Guest access

Single level home - has four steps to go to front door but is wide enough to suit wheelchair access.

Notes

We have an extremely friendly cat called Jinx who loves to be patted. Also as part of the family are Patch and Milo, the sheep who love to keep the grass down near the dam. If you are allergic to cats, we can get other people to mind him, but he really does love people.

Neighbourhood

The Coolhaven Homestead is in the heart of the Shoalhaven wine region and close to the many beautiful beaches, the iconic township of Berry and Kangaroo Valley villages. Jervis Bay is a 102-square-kilometre oceanic bay and village on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, said to possess the whitest sand in the world. It is surrounded by Jervis Bay and Wreck Bay. From Sydney, it’s an easy two hours drive 160 kilometres south. And from Canberra, it’s a two and a half hour drive north of around 200 kilometres. Water-lovers have so much choice with a wealth of lakes and inlets, great surf beaches, excellent tidal and beach fishing, boating and watersports. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy some excellent bushwalks with an abundance of native flora and fauna to discover. Rich in local culture, the Shoalhaven’s many annual food, wine and arts festivals and events have become popular reasons to getaway. A wander through our colourful weekend markets is also a popular pastime, often after a leisurely Sunday brunch. Foodies love the range of fresh produce farmed and harvested locally including delectable seafood, market garden produce, wine, dairy, coffee and olive oil. And our many cafes, bistros, takeaways and restaurants ensure you’re never short of places to enjoy it all. For those that love a good drop, the region offers 20 vineyards, and 11 cellar doors, as well as wine tasting tours for weekenders. The Shoalhaven’s temperate climate is comfortable all year round, with balmy sea breezes to cool in summer and clean crisp air for long country walks in winter.

Getting around

Just south of Sydney, you’ll find a beautiful stretch of coastline perfect for day trips, weekend escapes and longer stays at any time of the year. The unspoilt NSW South Coast is easy to get to by car, train or plane. Drive via one of the most spectacular touring routes in the world, fly to an airport or take a scenic train trip. One of the best ways to explore the natural splendour and fascinating heritage of the South Coast is by car. The magnificent 140km Grand Pacific Drive begins just south of Sydney and weaves through one of the oldest national parks in the world to Stanwell Park and then over the stunning Sea Cliff Bridge. The route hugs the Illawarra Escarpment to Wollongong and then takes you past Albion Park, Shellharbour, Kiama, Gerringong and Berry, before travelling on to Nowra, which is close to the white sand beaches and dolphins of Jervis Bay. This journey is part of the spectacular Sydney to Melbourne Coastal Drive. Batemans Bay is a four-hour drive from Sydney and two hours from Canberra. The drive from Melbourne to Eden, one of Australia’s best spots to watch whales, is a little over six hours. From Canberra, it takes three hours to get to Eden via Merimbula and Pambula. Find useful road trip information about NSW weather and NSW roads. You can also travel by train, with regular services leaving from Sydney's Central Station. There are many small towns to visit along this scenic rail route including Stanwell Park, Scarborough, Austinmer, Thirroul, Bulli, Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Gerringong and Berry. Bomaderry near Nowra is the last stop on the line. Buses depart from Canberra and Sydney for popular seaside destinations. Another option is to fly to the far South Coast and rent a car. With Regional Express, you can fly from Sydney to Moruya, which is only 40 minutes’ drive from Narooma. Flights to Merimbula operate out of Sydney and Melbourne. To get around on a daily basis from Coolhaven Homestead to do shopping etc, a car is highly recommended as there is limited public transport. A vehicle can be provided with the home exchange on request to guests who have appropriate driving permits.
