First holiday place with good kitchen knives!Rachel Wynd - 30th August 2023
Nicely situated to beach. Comfortable with a choice of seating places - inside and outside - for relaxing between trips to the beach. Clean and well-kitted out kitchen. Good for cooking in. Lots of sharp knives too! Really enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful outlook and relaxing locationJoanne Waples - 22nd December 2022

Stay at BomboraCarla S. - 15th April 2022
A great place with an easy walk to 7 mile beach, coastal lookouts and great little community cafe. Well provided for, ample space inside and out and lovely views onto the nearby coastline. A very comfortable abode which would love to stay in again
BomboraEmily Proudfoot - 31st December 2021
Beautiful outlook and relaxed vibe - perfect for a low key family Christmas break after the year that was. Well equipped kitchen with thoughtful additions catering to the younger visitors. Would absolutely recommend and stay again.
Our stay was wonderful! The location was amazing, just a stroll to the beach and river, and close to the local cafe. The place was comfortable and perfect for our getaway!
A great location for a South Coast mini break. Being right across from the top end of Seven Mile Beach, the house was in a great location. A well kit out kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and inviting living spaces. I’d be happy to recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Kiama-Gerringong-Gerroa area.
Great spot at a great location.
Most relaxing stayBen Shaw - 1st April 2021
Just needed to get away for a few days and I could not have been more pleased. Great holiday feel accommodation, I really felt like I could leave all my worries behind me. Highly recommend!
Lovely white washed beach house with everything you need and more. Great for couples and families with the beach only a couple hundred metres from the front door and a great local cafe 50m from your front door.
Great location and views. Terrific cafe a couple doors down. Very close to beach. Rustic cottage.
Location, location, location!!! Beautiful house, lots of space in a superb location with beautiful views.
Great location & Blue swimmer restaurant for morning coffee basically next door
This beautiful home was the perfect long weekend getaway with spectacular views over the beach that is just a 1 minute walk away. The house had everything we needed and was so beautifully presented while the spacious decks at the front and back were perfect for long lunches and dinners outside. I couldn’t recommend this place more for friends or a small family looking for a quiet relaxing beach getaway. I’ll definitely be back!
Simply superb location from which to enjoy all that the cosy hide away of Gerroa can offer. Amazing views, spacious, sparkling clean and generally well appointed beach house.
Stunning location!Clint Saarinen - 15th December 2020
Beautiful and well maintained beach house with plenty of living spaces to enjoy inside and outside. Perfect location for walks to beach and the wonderful Blue Swimmer Cafe for a coffee or dine in.
Great LocationNichola Gardner - 29th November 2020
The proximity to the river and beach was amazing and the house was clean and tidy. We stayed on an extremely hot weekend and the aircon and ceiling fans weren’t sufficient to keep the family cool. The aircon isn’t very powerful. We noticed the bbq wasn’t that clean when we went to use it. There was also a plastic high chair with lots of cracks in it which didn’t seem safe for a child to sit in, and the tray was also broken. The floor fan in the bunk room didn’t work.
Nice beach houseFamilyof4 - 30th December 2019
Great summery feeling place close to the beach. Look somewhere else if luxurious is your thing, yet everything you'd need for a relaxed airy beach property. Accommodated a family of 4 comfortably. if anything somewhat basic storage (wardrobes, drawers) - which mattered little for a beach break in any case. I would go back.
Very ComfortableAnnaD - 9th December 2019
Very Comfortable and fresh place. .
