The Waterfront House – 4pm Check Out Sundays (except Peak season)!
The Waterfront House is a romantic and relaxed coastal getaway, perfect for couples or a small family. Inspired by Scandinavian interiors, the house is decorated in a sun bleached and salt kissed palette of white walls, natural hues and organic textures for simple waterside style. If you love clean lines, natural light and restful living areas, this indoor-outdoor house will suit you perfectly. Providing a waterfront getaway 12 months of the year, it is exactly what a beach house should be: a place to kick back. Even though the best of what Jervis Bay has to offer is only a few minutes drive away, you will be immersed in the beauty of your own waterfront.

Why choose The Waterfront House?
The Waterfront House is an original boathouse that has been sympathetically extended and features a relaxed aesthetic of rustic simplicity. The interior is layered with neutral tones and natural materials such as linen, rattan and tropical greenery. A mix of cushions and throws in a pared back colour palette makes the interior cosy and inviting all year round. Throw open the French doors onto the deck overlooking the waterfront where kangaroos often laze on the front lawn. Curl up behind the large windows with a glass of wine and contemplate the sunset over the water. In the early evenings take a chair to the waterfront, as there is nothing better than pondering the water under the night sky. The simple beauty of this space leaves you knowing that this is how life should be lived.

Wonderful and magicalCatherine Seaton - 16th January 2022
We have so loved our stay at this beautiful property! Such great attention to detail and such a comfortable place. Our dog loved it as much as we did! Can't wait to return!
Lovely relaxing stay!Elise Beattie - 30th November 2021
Thank you for yet another wonderful stay. The house was cosy and had everything we needed for a perfect long weekend away from the city. Thank you!
Amazing locationLaura McCarroll - 23rd November 2021
We absolutely love this property. Location right on the waterfront was perfect. The place itself is furnished lovely and has a real coastal feel to it. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and will be coming back again ourselves.
Erowal Bay a lovely little village. Beautiful water views with a visit from kangaroos morning and evening. Nice to visit Hyams Beach for morning coffee. Cottage very comfortable.
Sweet and cozy placeChloe Oh - 23rd May 2021
The property was maintained very well, had everything that we needed. The place was warm and lovely we’ve enjoyed very much, strongly recommend if you are planning to weekend get away! Would love to come back again!
We loved our family escape to the waterfront. Loads of family firsts-my son caught a fish and our dog saw her first kangaroo and I managed to read a book in the afternoon sun! So relaxing, amazing sun sets and as the temperature dropped we kept really cosy. Thank you Oh and plan a pizza night in - the local store has woodfired pizza on the weekend, it was sooo good!
We just loved our stay here. The view is amazing and the house is clean and extremely comfortable. Highly recommend!
Very nice, good attention to detail and the absolute waterfront was great
Very relaxing, short trip to the shops and Hyams beach.. very tranquil bay and local visits from kangaroos
Excellent, all perfect. Definitely would stay again.
Paradise FoundChristine Lumb - 29th March 2021
I truly cannot find enough praise for this wonderful cottage The peaceful location on the water is so perfect Furnishings and facilities all fantastic My only regret is that we are not staying longer
Wonderful little cottage by the lake. Neat and tidy and great style.
Great timePauline Crichton - 13th February 2021
Beautiful home. we loved it and really enjoyed our stay. Lovely decor and very clean. We will be going back.
Great place in a great location. Such a nice view to wake up to.
Unbelievable proximity to the water, beautiful views. Very clean and tastefully decorated. A stylish retreat.
Beautiful space. The lake is amazing. Super close to everything you want to be near and kangaroos will hop by you as you enjoy the deck/lake. Second bathroom is outside which was slightly inconvenient.
Gorgeous cottage in the loveliest location! We loved relaxing on the back porch and playing in the water with our dogs. It was so relaxing. Had a couple of kangaroos swing by in the morning & evenings, stunning sunsets & the air conditioning was very welcome as we stayed during a little heatwave. Not a lot around - as we like it. Ate out in Huskisson mostly and would have loved to have stayed longer to explore more local surroundings.
Gorgeously furnished place with dreamy views and lots of space. The bigger bathroom is external, which could be an issue for some at night but we had a wonderful time and would definitely be back!
Absolutely loved our stay- would definitely recommend. Gorgeous to wake up to that view. Was beautiful to also have the back seating section to escape the wind.
Negative: No Kayaks (only informed on arrival that it is due to insurance), Small bed in south room with hazardous bed frame and side table close to bed .Positive: Location is excellent !
Superb location and beautifully appointed. The Waterfront House is a gem and he perfect beach house.
Such a lovely cosy and homely little shack. The perfect little getaway spot to relax and enjoy being by the water. This was our second time staying and will most definitely be back again!
Had an amazing time at this little piece of heaven. The house is beautifully done and the views are spectacular. Got lucky enough to spot kangaroos too. Will definitely return for a relaxing time.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The space works really well for a couple with an infant and dog. The second bedroom is a little smaller than what we expected- but it was very handy to have an extra room for baby’s changing room. The two outside areas is perfect- one has a fantastic view and the other is nice and sheltered from the weather. Very comfortable stay and the sunsets over the basin were stunning. Would happily rent again.
This place is a steal! Such a beautiful house, I was truly inspired by the beautiful interior design. The place is larger than anticipated from the photos which was a nice surprise. Very clean and beautiful spot.
A beautiful property in a lovely peaceful location. The house was clean, tidy, very comfortable and beautifully styled. Our family loved our 3 nights stay in Erowal Bay
A beautiful space that has been styled so beautifully. Lovely outside deck to enjoy the view and sunsets. Our dog Holly had a ball chasing ducks and exploring the bay. Slightly disaapointed there were no kayaks available as previously advertised and we did find the bed and pillows quite uncomfortable (personal preference I suppose but for the price of the stay each night you'd expect a comfy nights sleep). We did love our stay here though, the house, bay and local area is stunning and a perfect getaway spot for us and our pooch.
We had the most relaxing 3 night stay with our dog at the waterfront. The house is stunning and is in the quietest most beautiful location, the perfect place to switch off for a few days. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful house at a perfect location!
A little touch of heavenAndrea - 1st April 2020
A very special place to stay and so close to the water. Beautiful!
Beautiful with lots of characterNathalie - 8th March 2020
This place is beautifully decorated and in a perfect location, super close to the white beaches. The second bedroom isn't huge but has everything you need and the beds are comfy. All amenities and are there, as well as tons of books, which adds to the whole experience. We loved the little extra touches like organic hand soaps and fresh flowers. Check-in as well as communication with the host have been very easy and friendly. The water view is stunning and very calming. This is the perfect place to chill out and relax. We're stoked to have found this little gem, we'll be back for sure!

Cute CottageGelndaL - 29th November 2019
Cute cottage in a lovely location. Beautiful sunset views. Appreciated the ample essential supplies of toilet paper, tea etc. Good Wifi
So relaxingJenny - 14th October 2019
The weekend was just perfect. From the time we arrived and saw our view we knew it was going to be special. The house just has that warm comfortable feeling. Everything we needed was there. The quietness was so wonderful to sleep in and just to curl up with a book was sublime. Cannot wait to go back. Thank you for a very special stay. Words really cannot do justice for this place. Just go and stay Jenny and Don
Everything and more!Lorelie - 19th August 2019
I so badly needed a getaway and was really lucky to have booked this amazing bayside cottage. The peacefulness, the well kept cottage, the extra details and the comfort we experienced was just amazing, truly top notch!! My 11 yr old had only walked in 10mins and already knew she loved the place and would have the most amazing weekend! My birthday was made that even more special this year! Will be booking in again for sure!!
Pet-friendly and relaxing!Nana - 28th July 2019
A very cosy home with a beautiful porch! We loved being able to take our Golden Retriever with us, who enjoyed swimming in the lake. The house had all the essentials you needed from tea, coffee, biscuits to bathroom amenities and toilet paper. Only downside was the bathroom, which seemed to be the only room that didn't have the Scandinavian interior. But other than that it was such a relaxing getaway, pet-friendly and very cosy to be staying at.
Exceptionally well setupSimon - 27th April 2019
We stayed her for over a week, what a great little place. Perfectly situated if you have a boat, like us. The house itself was great. Very well stocked of the essentials, little things like heaps of toilet paper, hand wash, etc etc. It’s a pain when you arrive and then have to rush out and this stuff. Not here. Place was clean. Beds were probably the only let down, rock hard. Would we stay again, yes most definitely.
PerfectionKarolina - 18th January 2019
Fantastic mini get-away. My little boy was in the water from morning till after sunset. Awesome way to unwind from busy city life. I want to come back again! PS watch out for the kangaroo that appears like clockwork between 20:30 - 9pm every night :-)
Perfect relaxationPrudenceQuinn - 17th October 2018
Fantastic place, ideal location, super relaxing and totally stunning! Will definitely be back again!
Pristine nature, peace and tranquilityFiona - 10th October 2018
While we only stayed for 4 nights, it felt like we were restored and had been away for a week. Every little detail was considered in the layout and design of this sanctuary. The sunsets were heaven and the setting made it easy to totally relax, walk, read and sleep. Bliss
lovely spaceJessica - 15th May 2018
Lovely space, beautiful view. Family friendly with lots of activities and places to see just a short drive away. Fantastic outdoor entertainment area.
PerfectMelissa - 15th May 2018
This was the perfect place to get away from busy city life. Very quiet, picturesque, family friendly environment. The house was so cosy it felt like a real home away from home. We relaxed on the porch by the water, enjoyed a romantic candle lit dinner and watched our dog run around the yard. From booking to check in and check out the entire process was seamless. Would definitely come back here.
loved it!Claudine - 15th May 2018
We loved the location and the beautiful home. We didnt want to leave!
PerfectSharon - 8th May 2018
This was the perfect beach bach - tastefully decorated, attention to detail spot on, everything we needed, well equipped (including 2 kayaks). Fabulous relaxing spot - sitting on the deck with a glass of wine watching life on the Basin was perfect. We had the best weekend - thank you for sharing your gorgeous home.
Perfect Holiday HomeRoger2607 - 9th March 2018
UK Cousins with us. Very excited about seeing kangaroos.
Perfect, Peaceful & PrettyGypsymay - 1st February 2018
Beautifully appointed beachy cottage with every comfort thought of. Quality furniture, decor and accessories ensured a relaxing 'at home' feel, with a spectacular view you could never tire of. The local wildlife is a joy to watch, including pelicans, kangaroos, ducks and seagulls. Wonderful place to rejuvenate and get back to nature. The 2 kayaks provided were an extra bonus. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay. We'll definitely be back.
Lovely peaceful getawayAirbnb - 13th December 2017
Lovely peaceful getaway with stunning views, wildlife and canoeing. Little extras that made it feel like a home away from home. Highly recommend and will be back for sure
Absolutely stunning placeAirbnb - 21st November 2017
Absolutely stunning place. Nicely furnished and has all the creature comforts. Sit on the porch and watch all the ducks and wallabies go by. Dog friendly place which is a bonus!
