About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, very close to beach

Innisfree at Callala Beach on NSW's South Coast is set within spectacular bush surroundings and yet is just moments from the water. This comfy holiday house, complete with fully equipped kitchen, and barbeque facilities, has two master bedrooms with queen size beds, one with a private ensuite. A third bedroom features a bunk bed with one double and one single bed. The house is perched on the edge of the Jervis Bay Marine Park and is only two minutes' walk away from the pristine waters of Callala Beach - perfect for snorkelling and sunbaking.

The house is fully equipped with coffee facilities, dishwasher, microwave, BBQ, DVD, TV, CD player, three bathrooms, extra hot water outdoor shower, and laundry.

The house also offers plenty of outdoor space with a front verandah with outdoor dining and seating, and back deck and a large garden set with gum trees and other local foliage.

Stroll along a shady path to the beautiful pure white sands of Callala beach on Jervis Bay where dolphins frolic in the clear water. Relax on the beach while children play in the calm waters. The cottage is set in native gardens which welcomes kookaburras and parrots. Sleep soundly at night listening to the waves gently washing on the beach.

Callala Beach attractions

Apart from the beach itself, there is a children's playground near the general store, tennis courts for hire, and a local golf course (complete with grazing kangaroos). You can throw a line in the water, or take out a canoe or kayak. Dine at the local club or pizza restaurant. Callala Beach is great for bike riding as the roads are flat and the traffic quiet. You can cycle to nearby Myola and Callala Bay. You can also take your bikes on the ferry to Huskisson, and cycle further around the Bay to Vincentia. For the more adventurous there are plenty of mountain bike paths to explore.

A ferry service operates between nearby Myola and Huskisson. It's a great day trip for a coffee, lunch, movie, dinner or to browse the shops. Ask the ferry operator about booking a relaxing twilight cruise on Currambene Creek.

Callala Beach is on Jervis Bay which is a Marine Park so the marine life is protected and enhances the natural surroundings.

Callala Bay, Myola, Greenwell Point, Huskisson, Nowra

Around the corner from Callala Beach, Callala Bay offers a mini shopping centre, complete with IGA supermarket, cafes, bakery, butcher, chemist, bottleshop, and DVD hire at the IGA. You can also launch boats from the nearby boat ramp.

Myola is a short drive, cycle, or for a longer excursion, a walk or run along the beach. You can take the ferry from here to Huskisson. You can launch boats from here too.

Pick up fresh local fish and chips, lobster, calamari, prawns and oysters at nearby Greenwell Point or Nowra Fresh, on the Princes Highway on your way to Callala. Currarong is a short drive away and offers great fish and chips and beaches.

Huskisson is located across the water from Myola, a 20 minute drive away. Huskisson is replete with gourmet cafes, restaurants and delis, kayak and canoe hire, scuba diving, shops to browse in, more fabulous beaches, and a great kids' playground. Regular dolphin watching cruises are also available. Nearby Vincentia offers an indoor swimming centre with a giant water slide. There is a winding cycle path around the foreshore from Huskisson to Vincentia.

Beyond Vincentia is the Jervis Bay National Park with fabulous walks and surf beaches.

Nowra offers a wildlife park, naval museum, swimming centre, historic houses, and varied shopping.

Arthur Boyd's Bundanon estate is near Nowra. On the way stop at a local winery to pick up a chilled bottle of wine to accompany your picnic.

On the way to Sydney, Berry is a great place to shop and eat.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Emma for sharing your property with us and our dog. Everything about our stay was so comfortable, we even have the same Kitchen table and camphor tea chest! We look froward to staying again in the near future. Only hope is that one of the doors get a screen on it.

Beautiful Innisfree

  • 5 of 5

Innisfree is a Beautiful beach house, we wanted for nothing during our stay. comfy beds, spacious bedrooms, very short walk to a beautiful beach. Great furnishings and finishings. Very homey. Master bedroom a nice distance from the other two and with an ensuite. 3 showers for after the beach. With everything we would need in both the kitchen and laundry / bathroom (beach toys etc) In short we were very happy!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Innisfree. The house is well kept, comfortable and had everything

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Innisfree. The house is well kept, comfortable and had everything we needed. Our children loved the bedrooms and had plenty of space to play. The beach is beautiful and only a short stroll from the house which was perfect for us with three young children. It is a great location with plenty to do. We will certainly be back!
