Kate Dwyer purchased this House in 2010
Why Kate Dwyer chose Culburra Beach
In Feb 2010 we went to Culburra to visit a friend for a coffee and bought a house ! It was rundown and multi coloured but in arguably one of the best locations on the east coast of Australia. It faces due north, has its own direct beach access onto 3 kms of pristine south coast beach and has magnificent views all the way up the coast. We did our own Grand Design project, gutting the house ,adding the huge deck and fitting it out with all new furniture and appliances. We have a great photo book of the "transformation of Escape " at the house. .We have also won many national and state tourism awards. We opened for guests in Jan 2011 and since then we have hosted 318 guest groups receiving 186 5 star reviews .Many of our guests are regulars coming back year after year .We get a great deal of enjoyment from providing a great guest experience .We also frequently enjoy the house with our family and friends which I think gives it that unique family ambience which is so often mentioned in our reviews. We are new to the delights of the South Coast and continue to be delighted by its beauty and pristine nature. It is just as fabulous in winter as in summer with its direct north aspect the house fills with sunshine while the open fire heats the whole house at night.
What makes this House unique
We stayed in many rental properties when our children were growing up and Escape is a "wish list " of all the things we'd have wanted in a rental house ! The most unique thing about Escape is its location -one of the best spots on the east coast -faces due north with direct beach access down the south safe swimming end of Culburra Beach We pride ourselves in providing an excellent, quality holiday experience .All the beds are comfortable with quality linen and towels , all the appliances are of good quality and in excellent working order, we have a full pantry and many extras which are not usually included in holiday letting properties .We are also pet friendly -it is rare to get such a quality property which allows pets both inside and out . I think many of our reviews highlight the many special things about Escape . We have won many National and regional tourism awards and display our awards proudly at the house !

True ocean front setting
We’ve just spent 4 nights here and we loved it! The house is very homey and cosy with a log burner which we lit every evening. It is so well stocked with everything you could think of, the kitchen is big and has absolutely every pan and utensil you should need! But of course the main feature of this property is the stunning view of the ocean from the entire living space and main bedroom. Just a few steps down from the end of the garden and you are on the beach! We had our labradoodle with us and he was allowed to run free on the beach until 10am and after 3pm which was ideal. If you are looking to switch off and relax, this is definitely the place, the sound of the ocean at night was perfect. It’s one of those places that really did look like the pictures! We would definitely visit again.
Escape@ Culburra is in a class of it's own - 10/10
Escape @ Culburra Beach is truly a one in a million holiday house. It has one of the most amazing views we have come across in our travels. It has everything you need for a wonderful and relaxing break. The kitchen, bathroom and laundry was so well stocked - the owners have thought of everything. It is really fabulous to have such a high quality home that allows you to bring along your four legged friends. We can't wait to return to this amazing gem in Culburra Beach.
Thanks so much Kylie -Thrilled that the holiday was such a success!
A week of pure bliss
We have just returned from a week at Escape@Culburra and loved every minute of it! The house is spacious, cosy and stylish and takes advantage of the most beautiful aspect that enjoys sun all day long. The oceanfront position is absolutely spectacular - we spent hours just taking in the view. Proximity to the beach is so good - just a few steps and you're on the sand, and the generous off-leash hours make it perfect for dogs. Jenny our host had thought of everything - it was as though I had stocked the house myself. So many little touches that added up to a perfect week away. Can't remember the last time we felt this relaxed - thank you so much for having us - we will be back!
Thankyou for your wonderful review Felicity. So glad it was so relaxing and we would love to welcome you back anytime.
Fabulous weekend of luxury
Escape to Culbnurra is true to the word, You escape mentally and soak up the sea air. The house and what is provided in the pantry is all high end. There is human and dog treats in the pantry, everything has been thought of. The location was so peaceful to sit on the amazing deck in the sun watching the Dolphins. So good for the soul to Escape to Culburra. We had a fabulous weekend. Our dogs loved to free on the beach and would be exhausted and lay by the fire in the evenings. Do yourself a favour and Escape to Culburra.
Thanks so much Heather .So glad the holiday was such a success .You are welcome back any time
This house has the most amazing views. We had a wonderful weekend relaxing and soaking up the stunning views of Culburra Beach, we even saw dolphins swimming in the bay. The house was immaculate and Jennifer was very assisting. It is a beautiful part of the world. We look forward to coming again.
Mini Holiday with dog
Escape at Culburra was the perfect getaway, the home had absolutely everything needed to get away and relax. Our jack russell loved the dog friendly beach and warm fireplace in the evening.
Culburra is a quintessential Aussie beach side town .Culburra Beach is on your doorstep (literally) and Warrain beach 5 mins away. Both are surf beaches. There is a quieter bay area at the south end of Culburra Beach called Tilbury Cove which is perfect for children. It is 50 m from the house .
The house is also located down the south , safe swimming, patrolled end of the beach.
We can see pods of dolphins in the bay all year round and whales during their annual migration (Sept to December )
The "bowlo"(Bowling Club )is fabulous and Woolworths has a large, well stocked shop in town which home delivers. There are some fabulous coffee shops and restaurants in town.
Culburra is nestled amongst some of Shoalhaven's most beautiful country side. For boating enthusiasts there is a near bye lake plus the Shoalhaven River ( 2 boat ramps ).There is great fishing in the river and off the beach. There are lovely beach and bush walks near bye :Jervis Bay National Park, Kangaroo Valley, Berry, Milton and Abrahams Bosom.
The local attractions include Calla, Currarong and Jervis Bay a short 20 min drive away. Near Currarong you will find many more secluded, white, sandy beaches including gorgeous Honeymoon Bay.
Great local fish and oysters are available at Greenwell Point. Visit many local wineries-the South Coast has some fabulous wineries including Two Figs, Silos Estate and Coolangatta Estate.
There are 3 near bye Golf courses and horse riding
Culburra is great for bike riding as it is so flat.
There is a children's playground with picnic facilities 5 mins up the road or accessed from Tilbury Cove.
