About the property

Luxurious. If you want one of the very best beachfront holidays, this is the one for you.

From this absolute beachfront accommodation, you can hear the sound of the waves breaking and smell the sea in front of you, and even have a swim before breakfast, or later in the day with the dolphins.

All you have to do is unpack and start enjoying and as the saying goes “the world is your oyster”.

Whether you want to swim, surf, paddle in the water, explore the rock pools, walk the beaches or just laze in this tranquil setting, this is the place to be for your getaway all year round.

You will not want to leave.

Denham’s Beach Retreat has an absolute beachfront position that offers you a memorable tranquil beach holiday, where you can get away from city noise, traffic and the fast pace of life.

Denham’s Beach is one of three beaches that you can swim and enjoy long walks on, as you experience the feeling of sand between your toes. There are no roads to cross, so perfect for all ages.

Enjoy the magnificent views of the beach out to Tollgate Island, through the spotted gum trees with a relaxing drink from your own balcony or living areas.

Build sandcastles, swim, surf, and snorkel or walk the beach- the choice is yours.

Denham’s Beach

Denham’s Beach is 7km south of Batemans Bay, travelling along Beach Road through Batehaven, and shortly after Sunshine Bay and before you come to Surf Beach you will see Graydon Avenue, which leads down to Denham’s Beach.

For those traveling from Canberra it is a two hour drive, a pleasant 4 hours from Sydney and 1 and half hours from Goulburn.

Denham’s Beach is sheltered by rocky headlands, with good sized surf on most days and is popular with board riders and has great snorkeling around the rocks at the far end.

From here you can enjoy a short stroll around to Surf Beach during low tide, which is surf patrolled during the summer holidays and has lovely waves for boogie boarders.

Wimbie Beach which is adjacent, has smaller waves and from here leads you to scenic bush walks.

Denham’s Beach is known for its daily visit by a family of dolphins.

In Spring from September until late November, the humpback migration enchants our shores and can be seen from Denham’s Beach. Whale watching cruises can be taken from Narooma.

For the best coffee in the area try Crust at Batehaven.

Surf Beach, which is an easy walk around from Denham’s Beach has a small shopping Centre. There is a Chinese Restaurant- eat in or take away, Piccolo’s for pizza, Fish and Chip- eat in or take away, A Chemist, Medical Centre, an AGA Supermarket, Hair Dresser and Bottle Shop.

There is also a Beach Store that has newspapers and takeaway food.

Family of four spent a week in Jenny’s top floor apartment in the Jan 2018 holidays. Right on the beach with amazing views from the lounge and balcony. Jenny’s apartment is well designed; both spacious and private. Beach suits all-comers and there is plenty to do in the area. Jenny was a perfect host. We highly recommend staying here.

So relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou so much Jenny.

We had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful home. We especially loved the location (only a short walk to the beach) and breathtaking view of Denhams Beach. Our teenage children loved this location. Whilst there, our son paddle boarded at the beach and spent over an hour with dolphins on three occasions!! An experience he will never forget. We also watched whales breaching. We appreciated your little touches like leaving condiments for us and a welcome bottle of wine and of course the wifi inclusion made us all happy.

Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank-you Joanne and very pleasing to know that you had a wonderful holiday, and enjoyed the beautiful views .Being able to walk to the beach, always beats having to get the car out and drive. It was lovely that your son got to spend time with the dolphins and experience them close up. Whilst the dolphins are frequently there, your stay during this time of year, ensured that you saw the whales as they were migrating- it is always a special occasion when you experience them breaching. It was a pleasure having you all stay and hope that I can welcome you all back another time, when the need for a beach holiday calls.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Jenny's property is in an amazing location so close to Denhams Beach. The property is very well maintained with everything you could possibly need to make your holiday enjoyable. Very handy having the 2 car garage and a lovely bottle of wine upon our arrival made a nice start to our time there. The view from the balcony over the beach is nice and we loved the free wi-fi.

Owner's Response: Thank-you and thrilled that you all enjoyed your stay and found the location amazing- cannot beat overlooking the beach and hearing those pounding waves on the foreshore- and even better fishing from the beach for the guys! My pleasure having the wine there for you all to enjoy upon your arrival. Hope to have you back again, when you are next in need of a stress free place overlooking the beach.

Best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Denhams - BEST location, just a few minutes walk from the beach, and awesome entertaining area overlooking it. This house is fully equipped with everything you could ever need - toys, boardgames, staples plus a few treats (thanks Jenny), DVDs. Not that you need any of that with the beach at your doorstep. Thanks again.
