"We had an amazing time. The house is SO well put together. It is generously appointed and we were blown away by the thoughtfulness of the owners with all their attention to detail."
Testimonial from Denny - Hamilton Island Marketing
Driftwood Beach House Kiama is where you will make so many beautiful memories. This stunning beach house is a holiday home like no other.
One of the South Coast's best kept secrets, this 170 year old house has now been opened to the public and is available as a gorgeous holiday home. You will feel the sense of homeliness and style as soon as you enter.
Right in the heart of Kiama, overlooking Surf Beach and the historic Kiama Showground and just a leisurely stroll to the cafes and shops just around the corner. This original cottage has now been transformed into stunning and stylish accommodation and is pure class.
Driftwood Beach House can sleep up to 9 guests comfortably, has 2
bathrooms, multiple living spaces, high ceilings, white washed timber floors and a fantastic verandah. The bi-fold lounge room windows let you feel the ocean breeze whilst the front verandah allows you to sit, watch the kids play, enjoy the stunning view or relax with a glass of wine.
Driftwood Beach House comes equipped with reverse cycle air-conditioning, fans in all bedrooms, stereo and outdoor speakers and a cosy fireplace in the lounge room - perfect for cool nights or romantic getaways!
Hidden in the centre of the home is an amazing outdoor room for private alfresco dining or a BBQ. This unexpected outdoor room is accessed from the beautiful new kitchen through bi-fold doors and is the perfect place to enjoy your meals in almost any weather condition.
Driftwood has 2 x bathrooms. The main bathroom, off the kitchen, has been inspired from an old shearing shed of the past and is stylishly quirky with corrugated iron lining the walls of the large walk in shower. There is also an ensuite bathroom, complete with a freestanding bath & separate shower, off the main "Retreat" bedroom. This ensuite bathroom is also accessible from the kids bunk room.
The two Queen bedrooms, Retreat & Tropical bedrooms, have beautiful views out to Surf Beach and like the entire house, decorated to the highest standards. All furnishings and inclusions are brand new and of a high quality.
The beauty of Driftwood Beach House is that you can park the car and not use it again during your holiday. It's quicker to pop around the corner to a local café than it is to boil the kettle! The coastline is less than 200 metres away and the scenery and walks are magnificent.
