Solveena - Family Retreat

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property


Welcome to Solveena, my home away from home and now yours too. I have opened this home and set it up with the intention of bringing families together and providing a fun and relaxing holiday experience for all family members.

Solveena is the culmination of everything I love about my quaint hometown of Solva in old south Wales, where my own family memories were created, and my new home – Bundeena - a resort where I hope your family will create many new memories.

Please be advised the maximum number of people that can stay is 6.


Bundeena is one of Sydney’s best-kept holiday secrets. Here, you can have the spacious, family bonding experience you desire, without the crowds of inner city beaches, or the long drives of most NSW coastal getaways. Bundeena is only a one hour drive (50km) from Sydney’s CBD, yet it offers the same peace and tranquility than the other more frequented coastal regions. Once you experience the ease and lifestyle of Bundeena, you’ll wonder why you’ve spent so much time driving hours to find your holiday bliss all those years.

This village is a delightful experience, with all the beauty of the Royal National Park that it’s surrounded by. Sitting proudly on the waters of Port Hacking, there are endless activities, things to do and picturesque views here making it the ideal family destination.

The Home


The Solveena home is a three-bedroom two-bathroom family holiday house overlooking the sea. The rooms are spacious, and the living areas are open plan giving the space a wide, sunlit, sprawling feel. This is the only holiday rental providing the full family holiday experience with four living areas and all the entertainment you could possibly want: Netflix, DVDs, music, WII, over 20 board games, a separate games room with table tennis, dartboard, three kayaks and fishing equipment. Fully furnished and equipped with all linens, the only thing you need to worry about here is whether to go swimming, kayaking or for a hike along the coast.

The most tranquil beach in Bundeena (Gunyah) is only a two minute stroll, and the other main beaches (Jibbon/Hordern) is an easy five minute walk.

The home sleeps six . Whether you’re a family looking for a special holiday, want to celebrate an important occasion, to reunite with loved ones, or just want to get away with friends or your partner, you will find what you’re looking for here.

Room features:

Master bedroom: A spacious room fitted with a queen Bed, ensuite, TV and a built in, walk through closet.

Second bedroom: Features a queen bed, and built in robes.

Third bedroom: Feature two single beds and built in robes. Can be a double on Request.

Laundry with washer and dryer.

Living area: This large, open plan living area faces north and has stunning sea views. It comprises of:

- A 65” TV, Stereo, DVD, streaming TV, Unlimited Wifi.

- Dining table area to seat eight.

- Fully functional open plan kitchen including oven, dishwasher, fridge and microwave.

- A large entertaining deck with BBQ.



Bundeena, meaning “sounds like thunder” in the indigenious language is a village full of community spirit. It may only be an hour drive away from Sydney but here you feel as though you could be in a seaside village far, far away.

Our area boasts five very different beaches: Gunyah, Hordern, Jibbon, Bonnievale and Shelley. Aside from enjoying these for a swim (which are all within walking distance) there are many things to do for the activity lovers including paddle boarding, boogie boarding, kayaking and snorkeling, cycling, bowling and Tennis at the local “Bowlo”, fishing (from either the beaches, sea or wharf) or sea fishing can also be organised through a local company. If hiking is more your style, you can walk one of the many coastal paths in the area, or explore the rock pools during low tide. For the culture seekers, we have many cafes, pottery and painting classes and an art gallery. On the first Sunday of every month we also have art trail where you can discover 20 local artists in their own galleries, and this also coincides with the Bundeena markets.

Great place for a weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

My 2 friends and I had a great weekend at Solveena. It's located in a great spot, close to the beach, the local shops and local cafes. The house is comfortable and spacious and well equipped, especially the master bedroom. We were there in winter, so nights were cool, but the house is easy to heat. We made great use of the balcony which has beautiful views across the water both day and night. The beach is close by and there are some beautiful walks to do - with the track at Jibbon Beach offering the chance to take in Aboriginal rock carvings. Nolan was a friendly and helpful host who was happy to have a chat, talk about the property and make recommendations for good places to eat, local attractions and activities. The property is very good value for money and the listing on Stayz accurately reflects the property. It's a lovely place to be as active or as relaxed as you want. I would happily stay again. Thanks for providing the setting for a great weekend Nolan.

Great Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Solveena - Family Retreat is ideally located near beaches, walks, cafes and food supplies. Nolan genorously provided kayaks and safety gear, fishing rods, table tennis, several board games and activities, wifi and much more. The house is well set out for families and has wonderful views of Port Hacking and Cronulla. A very enjoyable stay.

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Nolan who showed us around the property. Fell in love with the view and house straight away. it was close to beach and shops. Everything you could possibly need was included, heaps of games, Netflix , Wie, free wi-fi, etc. Nolan was very friendly and helpful in an unobtrusive way. The house was very spacious, giving 6 people plenty of room to enjoy themselves.

Easy, spacious, relaxing, great views

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! Not only in a great location with great views it is set up perfectly for a relaxing break. There are lots of things to do outdoors - it's only a short walk to the cafes and even shorter to the sheltered Gunyah Beach or a few more minutes around to Jibbon Beach and the Coast Walk into the National Park - but the house is so well set up that it is easy to spend a lot of time relaxing inside, reading, reconnecting and taking in the view. With six of us there the open plan rooms were spacious when we wanted to be together; but the different areas meant that we didn't have to be in each others' pockets all the time. And Nolan is an unobtrusive and very helpful and accommodating host.

Most perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay here was super super EASY. From booking, to driving in, to settling in, exploring the area, meeting Nolan, having guests over ... everything was just easy and hassle free. We have had a couple of bad experiences with travelling the last couple of times but we have walked away from our stay here feeling incredibly relaxed. Nolan was there the whole time (but other than answering our million questions did not bother us AT ALL) and helped up settle in, navigate around the area and allowed us to spend some very precious time with some family that visited us while we stayed here. Nolan made us feel very welcomed and allowed us access to lots of things he owned. As for the property it is very well set out, especially with families like ours with 3 young kids. There are spacious rooms, bathrooms and 2 living areas! We certainly did not feel like we were living on top of each other. We had some amazing BBQ's on the verandah with beautiful beach views. There is unlimited internet access, Netflix , Wii, X Box , games etc etc . which was all handy once the sun went down. The house is neat and clean and well presented. There is an abundance of linen as well. The location is PERFECT! Everything is within walking distance which means NO buckling and unbuckling booster seats a hundred times a day, no prams etc. etc. Beaches are all within a very short stroll on very quiet back streets. Be sure to visit Jibbon beach and the Aboriginal rock engravings! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, our family did too and we will most definitely be back. Thank you Nolan for opening your home to us..
