About the property

4 bedroom home with large living space; gorgeous verandah to relax.

The Verandah is a gorgeous original beach house set in a lush tropical garden providing a traveler with a haven of peace and tranquility only a few minutes walk from one of the few unspoilt, uncrowded and well preserved beaches in the region; perfect for swimming, surfing, sun bathing or just lazing about! There is even a good chance to spot a pod of Dolphins or the occasional whale. If you want true relaxing you will find it at the Verandah.


The Verandah has has a lovely relaxed beach house feel but with all the modern amenities you would expect from a luxury retreat. It has been furnish by a couple who want to return a few times per year and not have to worry about anything; from the moment you step inside to the large open plan living and dinning room you will be amazed at how all your needs have been met; the kitchen has a state of the art oven and gas cook top.

The French doors then open onto the wooden Verandah, where afternoons can be spent having a refreshing drink after a tiring day spent on the beach, which is a short stroll from the house, past the general store. Or lite the BBQ and cook up some fresh seafood which can be purchased straight of the boats at Brunswick Heads.

If the body needs to unwind then sink back into the enormous claw bath and let the bubbles relax and rejuvenate, so you can do it all again the next day.

The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 x queens, 1 room with 2 single beds; there is also a porta cot if needed for babies.

If it gets too hot or too cold whilst you are visiting then press the button on the reverse cycle air conditioning and all will be solved.

There is also unlimited wifi to keep the kids busy whilst your enjoying the verandah.


South Golden Beach is in the perfect location, just 20mins drive to Byron Bay, 30mins from Coolangatta/Gold Coast Airport and 1h 20min from Brisbane.

For the golf enthusiasts, just 3 minutes drive is the Ocean Shores Golf and Country Club which boasts one of the most scenic courses in New South Wales. A few minutes further down the road is Brunswick Heads which has a fabulous selection of cafes and boutique shops, it also has one of the oldest pubs in the area with a great beer garden and fantastic live music. Across the road is an amazing park for families, which also provides access to the beautiful Brunswick river

and the associated water sports.

Whatever you decide to do, you will be mesmerized by the natuaral beauty of The Verandah and its surroundings; it won't take you long to be totally relaxed and wishing you never had to leave!

Why Ralph McMillan chose South Golden Beach

We fell in love as soon as we saw this gorgeous beach house and we fall more in love everytime we pop down. South Golden is such a wonderful untouched area, with fantastic locals and a great vibe.

It was very clean, comfortable and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Perfect spot and Ralph is really lovely to deal with. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others!

Exhausted homestay needing attention

  • 1 of 5

Household displays interesting artwork and spacious living room. Disappointed with lack of cleanliness and property maintenance. Insect screens needed now. Comfort needs to be considered when offering holiday rentals.

I want this house!

  • 5 of 5

Easy walk to a stunning beach, quiet relaxed little seaside town, close to cafes and quirky stores of Brunswick Heads and popular Byron Bay. Then a balinese boho style house furnished with gorgeous wooden pieces. Look out antique doors opening onto lush gardens, rest in comfy bedrooms with kantha quilts, hang out in the huge open living with well equipped kitchen and two seating areas. Loads of dvds, thoughtful inclusions such as umbrellas, mosquito coils, spare light bulbs etc. House looks run down from outside and the local coffee isn't great but everything else is perfect.

don't judge a book by its cover

  • 5 of 5

I will be honest, when we pulled in the driveway I thought what have I done lol. But within minutes this magic house wove it's relaxed atmosphere completely around us! We had the best stay ever in the veranda. Everything we needed was supplied n even things you wouldn't normally find, the mozzie coils came in very handy. Short stroll to the beach. Only problem we had was we couldn't stay longer. Ralph was the perfect absentee host, promptly replying to my panicked email about no gas for the BBq ( look in the pantry there's always a spare lol) I will definitely be back, it truely captured our hearts ??

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with out stay at the beautiful Verandah! The perfect antidote for a stressed out family of five. From the minute we opened the doors we felt completely relaxed within this aesthetic and tranquil haven... Would highly recommend to anyone - minutes to the beach and a bit of retail therapy if you need it close by in the Brunswick Heads village. A local resident was happy to lease out bikes at a reasonable rate for the entire family. Ralph was particularly helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We serenaded to the serenity and it was a holiday we will never forget!
