Why Linda chose Kiama

Kiama is located in dairy country which meets the sea! As such it is just as enjoyable in winter as in summer. I travelled here for day trips as a child to visit the blowhole and have fish and chips at the harbour. Now it provides a tranquil respite from life in Sydney where we are now based.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is in an unenviable above the beach with views forever. The property is also private and spacious.

Internally we offer deluxe furnishings, a wood fired fireplace for winter and lots of little extras to make guests feel at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda, thanks so much for allowing us to have a nice little holiday. The place and location is outstanding and I'll be sure to recommend it to others.

We had a great time :)

Absolutely amazing spot!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house and location. We instantly fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived and had a wonderful stay with our little furbabies. We strongly believe that it is located in the BEST SPOT of Kiama not one of the best areas of Kiama as stated in the property description. We enjoyed the amazing view day and night. Watching the lighthouse at night was just one of the wonderful highlights. The tranquillity and privacy of this place is priceless. We can not thank Linda enough for sharing her stunning property. We would like to visit in winter too as it is the perfect property for all seasons. We can not wait to go back!

Linda was lovely, super communication, and friendly. We arrived late and she kindly went and turned on the heat for us and lit a beautiful candle. We had crap weather most of the stay but the place is so perfect, so cosy and welcoming that it didn’t matter in the least! In fact, we very much enjoyed lazing by the fireplace, reading and napping. It was a truly remarkable place. And the fact that they allow dogs was something I’m so appreciative for. My sausages enjoyed the grassy yard and the reserve right outside the gate. Thank you, Linda!!

Wonderful property, great views, comfortable with great attention to detail - couldn't be happier!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier when we arrived at The Sands to stay for our weekend away. The property was immaculate and so very comfortable. Linda has done a marvelous job decorating the space - everything you need is right at your finger tips. The view was spectacular of course - so much so we never wanted to leave The Sands - we just sat watching the view relaxing with a glass of champagne. Could not have wished for more.

Thank you
