About the property

Arrive, unpack, grab your beach towel & walk across the road to the beach

The Cottage is the perfect location for you to relive those holidays of your past, start a new beach holiday tradition, or just pop in for a home away from home experience for a few days.

Wake up to the sound of the ocean in this funky 2 bedroom 1950's cottage, situated within metres of beautiful Kirby's Beach in Berrara. This convenient location offers ocean peeps and caters to every level of activity; from lazing with a good book to swimming, surfing or snorkelling at the beach opposite. There are also many other local gems to explore; Berrara Lagoon is a short stroll away, take a leisurely 15 min walk to Swan Lake, or grab your bike or car and explore the many bush tracks in the local surrounds.

The Cottage can comfortably accommodate two adults & three children or two couples. The master bedroom holds one double size bed and the second bedroom holds a tri bunk bed (double bed with a single bunk on top). There is a compact kitchen containing a full size fridge & stove. The bathroom has just had a beaut new renovation that's in keeping with the retro feel & contains a shower and inside toilet. The external laundry also has an internal shower and there is another toilet outside. Gas BBQ facilities are available & there is a designated car parking spot.

Doonas & pillows are supplied

Bed sheets & towels are also included in the tariff .

Unfortunately there is no perimeter fencing (we enjoy the kangaroos passing through too much) so dogs are not permitted

So, what are you waiting for? Book. Arrive. Unwind.


Berrara is a pleasant 2.5 hour drive from Sydney and a similar drive from Canberra. Whether its surfing, fishing, waterskiing, kayaking, snorkelling mountain biking, bush walking or whale & dolphin watching, this beautiful area has it all.

Not only does Berrara boast three beautiful beaches, that is, Kirby's beach, Cudmirrah beach & Berrara beach but we also have the lovely Swan Lake, ideal for waterskiing, swimming & sailing.

Shops & Facilities

There is a Cafe/General store at Cudmirrah on Swan Lake where you can enjoy great meals & coffee or pick up supplies for your stay, you can also purchase petrol at the Cafe/General store.

Sussex Inlet is the closest town and is only seven minutes away by car. Sussex Inlet is the home of the 'Ocean & Earth' factory outlet so you can grab a bargain as well. You can enjoy the RSL Club & its dining facilities or the Bowling Club Restaurant in Sussex Inlet. There is also a "Hot Chicken" Outlet, a Fish & Chip shop, and a few Restaurants & Cafes. For your serious grocery shop, Spar is located in the town.

If you want to venture further south, the beautiful townships of Milton & Ulladulla are 20-30 minutes away on the highway. If you prefer going north, Jervis Bay, renowned for scuba diving & whale watching & Nowra, with its regional services are only 30 minutes away.

Pleasant Location

Family of three stayed here for two nights on a week end and enjoyed the stay. Very near to beach and loved the kangaroos in the evenings every day. Nice place to do a walk and will love to return for another holiday.

Right near the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the cabin: its cleanliness, decor and outside area to sit under the umbrella. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and discreet.The laundry was a bonus. Being across the road from the beach was wonderful though if you are looking for a cafe, you will need to travel a few kilometres. We had a very relaxing time.

Nearest Beach
100 Metres
Beautiful Kirbys Beach is just across the road
Other Activities:

so close to the Surf Beach!!!!

Our Area,

Berrara is part of the secluded coastal village of Sussex Inlet, we are lucky enough to be host to some of the best swimming water and beach fishing on the south coast. There are surf beaches as well as a tidal lagoon for swimming and water sports. We also have the beautiful Swan Lake at Cudmirrah, only a few hundred metres down the street. The lake has some stunning Flora & Fauna and is home to a wide variety of birdlife. It plays host to a number of water activities including sailing, swimming, water skiing, fishing, kayaking & stand up paddle boarding. There are plenty of places set aside on the edge of the lake as well for family recreation.

The broad expanse of St George's Basin is slightly to our north & is easily accessible from our many boat ramps on the tidal canal in Sussex Inlet. The Basin offers amazing water panoramas and is ideal for all water sports.

There are loads of local walks to do in the area but most notable are the Berrara Lagoon to the Mermaid Pool walk, roughly a 3 km return walk on the pristine Berrara Beach to the rock shelf at the far end where you will find Mermaids Pool, a rock pool big enough for the whole family to take a dip. And the Berrara Headland Walk that follows the beautiful Cudmirrah beach continuing along to the rock platform at the end of the beach where you can explore the small rock pools & also see fossils. This area is part of the National Park & fossils must not be removed.

We have a BMX Track & Skate Park located at the Thomson Street Sporting Complex Sussex Inlet for children & adults to enjoy along with Tennis Courts for hire. There is also the Sussex Inlet Aquatic Centre, that is an indoor heated pool, at the Sporting Complex.

We enjoy cycling many of the Conjola National Park Bike tracks.

Another incredible attraction in our area is the local kangaroo population. Its wonderful to watch them grazing in the park lands & even on our lawns!
