About the property

Art-Haus is a multi-award winning luxurious, dog friendly eco property located 200m from unspoilt Putty Beach (Killcare Surf Patrolled Beach) and within walking distance from Hardys Bay village and minutes from renowned Bells of Killcare restaurant.

Built in 2011 by highly respected local designer Andreas Heidbrink, who used a beautiful selection of materials together with an organic palette to achieve a unique design that compliments the beauty of the surrounding environment. Winning the HIA award in 2011 for Best GreenSmart Energy Efficiency Project Art-Haus demonstrates many eco-friendly, conserving elements of design.

Art-Haus has been styled by Sydney interior designer David Rowland. Individual pieces of designer furniture dress the simmering polished concrete floors. Walls are decorated with complimentary art from Australian artists and unique overseas sourced pieces, set under high timber-lined pitched ceilings to create a dynamic, spacious interior.

The open-plan kitchen with European appliances and custom built cabinetry, offers an informal yet highly effective cooking area to prepare a feast to be enjoyed at the oversized dining room table that comfortably seats 12. With expansive glass frontage opening to an oversized deck designed for you to sit and listen to the sound of the waves and the whispers of breeze through the angophora gum trees on exclusive Dedon© handcrafted outdoor furniture. The choices are endless to enjoy the tranquility and natural beauty of the space.

Upstairs, the master suite with queen bed comprises a split-level loft style retreat with custom-built w ardrobes and an en-suite that features a standalone bath. The private lounge area invites you to curl up on the comfy sofa and gaze through over-sized picture windows to ocean views.

The main area compromises of two bedrooms and a bathroom separated by a mezzanine level, aptly named after the beautiful art from Robert “Bob” Hill) -Dancing Stalk (Queen Bed) and -Contented Pelican (2 king single beds or king bed). Both bedrooms have private access to the wrap around balcony allowing you to lie in bed, protected by screens enjoying the sea breeze and sounds of nature.

Stunning house and a happy puppy!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a great holiday exploring the nearby beach and national parks. It was the perfect house for our family of 6 and a 4 month old puppy - we'd love to return someday!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with every aspect of our stay at the stunning Art Heus on oulr girls' weekend away - from the extremely helpful advice on the area the owner provided before our stay, to the excellent amenities in the kitchen, to how gorgeously the whole place was decorated. I would highly recommend this property to any group who are looking for a fantastic holiday/ weekend away.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations of a family (ages two to seventy) plus two dogs and it worked perfectly. Big spaces so no-one feels crowded, wonderful kitchen, multiple living areas. Stylish and comfortable and practical - all in one! And it's in a terrific spot between Hardy Bay (boats to hire etc) and Killcare Beach (surf and a peaceful pool for children).

Amazing House, perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place. It is beautifully designed & furnished with great rooms, ample space, and multiple living spaces. Very comfortably housed 8 adults, with a well stocked kitchen, and plenty of lounge/seating space, indoors & out.

We stayed in the middle of a heatwave, but the house is perfectly designed to take advantage of breezes to stay cool.

It is also fantastically positioned. Very close to the surf beach, through an easily walkable path. Surprisingly easy walk back into Killcare township also, under 5 minutes into the cafés, convenience stores & a couple restaurants.

Definitely one of the nicest property rentals I have ever stayed in, we will definitely be back.
