Araluen House is a luxurious, light-filled beach house only 5 minutes from Gerringong town! Relax with friends and family amidst stunning landscaped gardens and fish ponds, or head 100m down a short cut to the surf and sunshine at Werri Beach.
Where will I be?
Araluen House is an easy 100m walk to the famous surf spot at Werri Beach and the start of the Gerringong to Kiama Coastal Walk. Close by Araluen is Werri lagoon – a safe swimming area for younger children. A short, 5 minute drive away is Gerringong where you’ll find good coffee and a selection of nice restaurants. Minnamurra Falls is also close by – another great family outing!
Why choose Araluen House?
This home truly is a rare find for family and friends- close beach access and a pool right out back! Regardless of your group size Araluen House is the ultimate place to relax, pause and reflect in the tranquil surroundings that give you enough space to either unwind together or enjoy your holiday in peace.
How is the property laid out?
The uniquely different spaces are what makes Araluen House special! There are four large bedrooms in the main house and then a much larger separate and very private space – the Bali Bungalow.
Downstairs in the main house- the master bedroom has a king bed, full length windows overlooking the pool and an ensuite. Bedroom’s 2 & 3 have queen beds, and are opposite a large shared bathroom with double shower. Adjacent to these are the laundry and the downstairs lounge with a full home cinema, surround sound and black out blinds!
Upstairs in the main house – bedroom 4 has a double and an ensuite with a bath. The kitchen area proves a fabulous place for everyone to congregate whilst cooking up a storm, and flows through to the indoor and outdoor dining and lounging spaces.
The Bali bungalow, separate from the main house, has a king bed, a double, a library of books, TV and an ensuite bathroom with large stone bath and wet room shower.
Araluen House is able to accommodate a large family, a couple of smaller families or groups of friends. With plenty of indoor/outdoor areas, there is space for everyone to lounge around separately or together.
Wi-Fi, Internet, Netflix or Pay TV – will I have it?
Araluen offers complementary WiFi and Cable TV to guests (note the Wi-Fi is not available in the Bali bungalow). Keep in mind that the owner nor the managing agent can guarantee connectivity, so if internet access is critical during your stay please make sure you have a Plan B!
What about outdoors?
Landscaped Balinese style gardens lead to a spectacular backyard complete with a pool, deck chairs, Weber BBQ and a sitting area for drinks and entertaining. The kitchen/dining area flows through to the upper entertaining deck with both lounging and dining options. The back gate in the garden leads to a short cut – taking you straight to the beach!
Staying warm or keeping cool?!
Araluen House is equipped with reverse cycle air conditioning. In the summer months the house can be opened up for a fresh sea breeze.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
High quality linen, bath towels and beach towels are all provided! The beach towels may be used at the beach or around the pool.
Parking for cars, boats etc?

Lovely extended family staySamantha Yorke - 5th April 2021
My extended family of 9 (plus two canine members!) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Araluen House over Easter. The house is very well appointed and we particularly appreciated the outdoor areas, the extensively stocked kitchen (we did alot of cooking), high quality towels and linen, the wonderful selection of books and games and the very comfortable beds. The house is situated in a quiet residential street within a 5 min walk to to Werri Beach. Gerringong town centre is a short drive away.
Great house for groups but needs maintenanceKeith Stevenson - 1st March 2021
Great house for groups of friends. Heaps of room and fully stocked kitchen. Only down side is that the property is need of general maintenance and more information about how things operate is required. Main bedroom ensuite door no longer tracks and is difficult to open/close. Suspect the door and floor boards at the door are exposed to water damage from the shower. External blinds to the upstairs deck died long ago and need replacement. Kitchen sink does not hold water as the plug seals
Lovely HomeApril Morris - 31st January 2021
Lovely home and was perfect for our three families. The only problem was the coffee pod machine is not working correctly, other than that lived there home.
FabulousKirstin Telmer - 11th January 2021
We stayed for 2 weeks over the December holidays. It was one of the rainiest summers we have ever had. This property still ensured that we had a wonderful time. The house and garden are fantastic. The kitchen is one of the most well equipped kitchens I have ever come across on my holidays. And to top that off, we could walk to the beach every day.
ThanksNicholle Sparkes - 27th December 2020
The property has been great. It would have been nice to have been told about routine maintenance occurring, ie lawns and pool cleaning. These trades just let themselves in without asking. There are some lights out in the kitchen that need replacement. There also sounds like a rat or possibly a possum has made its home in the floor area (mezzanine) between level 1 and ground. It would have been great to have a vacuum cleaner. The small Dustbuster is not really useful.
Spacious and ComfortableBeverley Prior - 29th November 2020
Very well appointed house for a largish group. Beds very comfortable, and lots of great living spaces so we could easily spread out. The kitchen is very functional with many appliances and utensils. We enjoyed the pool. Really close to beach. Overall a very positive experience - only suggestions/ negatives ... there are no mirrors in some bedrooms, and no opening window or fire alarm in Balinese house. We were a group of 8 ladies and would all highly recommend Araluen.
Amazing home!Nic - 8th March 2020
This how was amazing the whole way throughout. The Balinese bungalow was Devine. Pool heated & interiors immaculate- can’t wait to stay again.
We love GerringongVanessa - 10th October 2019
This is a lovely home in a great location close to the beach. Our family enjoy an annual get together in Gerringong during October each year and always enjoy visiting this beautiful seaside town. Araluen House is large, spacious and well equipped. The pool house is a great option for teenagers to retreat. We had a few hiccups with lost keys on arrival and no bath towels in the upstairs bedroom. The boys were disappointed when they settled in to watch the NRL grand final match and discovered that although the house has Foxtel, the free to air channels are not available. The massive big screen TV was a waste when we had to watch the grand final on a laptop. The louvre windows are lovely and breezy during the day but there are no screens on the windows so we discover over 300 mosquitos in the master bedroom on our first night and no insect spray to be found. We had to chase them off with a pump pack of aeroguard and a dust buster vacuum. Screens on the windows would be a definite improvement so close to the stagnant Werri Lagoon.
