Al Mare - Upstairs Level - 4pm Check Out Sundays
Al Mare is a casual, comfortable and very affordable beach house – very well located just behind the Coles / Vincentia shopping centre. It is a five minute walk to beautiful Collingwood Beach, and because of its elevated position, has views to the bay from the upstairs balcony. The very funky BBQ and fire pit area at the back of the house also make this a great, unique option! Just please keep in mind to BYO sheets and towels.
Where will I be?
Al Mare is located very centrally in Vincentia with a local shopping centre just across the road, and Collingwood Beach only a two minute walk from the house. Huskisson, Hyams Beach and the beautiful Booderee National Park are also only a five minute drive. The house is slightly elevated, and the guest accommodation is on the upstairs level – giving good bay views.
Why choose Al Mare?
Al Mare has a great central location, within easy walking distance of all amenities. The house has been very well refurbished and has a great backyard and outdoor entertaining options.
How is the property laid out?
Al Mare is the upstairs level of a two storey house, but guests have use of a second shower downstairs and the back yard. Details are as follows:
The upstairs level has the three bedrooms, an open plan living – dining – kitchen, a shared bathroom, and a balcony that runs the full width of the house. Access is up a flight of stairs from the rear of the property.
The downstairs level is occupied by other guests, but no noise transmits between the two dwellings. Guests also have their own private laundry, with second toilet and shower on this level. The cushions for the BBQ area bench seats are also stored in the laundry.
Please note that the kitchen does not have a dishwasher.
Wi-Fi, Internet, Netflix or Pay TV – will I have it?
This particular property does NOT offer Wi-Fi. If you bring an internet dongle with you, the best network is generally Telstra. Otherwise, it’s best to use your smartphone only during your stay or find a local cafe that offers free Wi-Fi. The Holidays Collection is committed to getting all owners to provide Wi-Fi at their property, but this is still work in progress!
What about outdoors?
Al Mare has a full width balcony upstairs, good lawn areas (front and back), a large covered BBQ area and a fire pit for sitting under the stars around a fire! The cushions for the BBQ area bench seats are also stored in the laundry. There is also a 12 seater picnic table to enjoy your BBQ’s, and a swing set for the children.Overall, there are plenty of options for relaxing outside, or for dispersing the kids!
Keeping warm or keeping cool?!
Al Mare can be opened up to catch any sea breeze, and has heaters for the cooler months.

Awesome locationLofty - 27th April 2019
Thank you for our stay, the location was great and central. Kids, wife and I had a very relaxing holiday and the South Coast was beautiful as always. Looking forward to our next stay through your agency. Warm Regards

Thanks for a lovely stay, we had a great time, the Fire pit was a winner with the boys. On feed back I would say that the place presents as per the photos & is generally clean & tidy. The only negative feed back would be that some of the kitchen utensils were not left clean by previous tenants & the down stairs toilet had not been cleaned. One other thing was the smell of smoke from the tenants below, we found it to be leaking out of cracks in the wall which we plugged with Blue tack.
Definitely recommend it!Airbnb - 20th April 2017
We were a group of 7 and we could not have been happier with our easter weekend pick. The house was a true beach house with hand picked decoration, spacious, perfectly located, comfortable, clean, fully equipped and to top it all of: an ocean view - felt like home. Overall: Delightful. Communication was easy and quick. There was everything we needed to cook, clean and feel comfy - blankets and top quality heaters. There is an outdoor area with a fire pit where we gazed at the night sky while roasting marshmallows. It's walking distance from the local beach - great for morning strolls - and a stone's throw away for Coles, restaurants, bottle shops, cafes, etc. Definitely recommend it!
