Writers Loft, Erowal Bay – 4pm Check Out Sundays (except Peak season)!
This original fifties coastal weekender has been lovingly restored with both modern and vintage elements, providing a rustic and romantic setting for you to write your own story, to spin yarns, and tell tales. These walls have been keeping secrets for sixty years; tales of fishing, boating, family holidays and of the local beekeeper selling honey from the shed. Writers Loft is part of the larger story of the coast, of the south, of stars and trees and water. Be part of the laid-back simplicity of coastal life, enjoy the water views from the front porch or spend lazy afternoons reading the many books and magazines.

AmazingMICHAEL WELLS - 21st June 2021
The cottage was beautifully presented. Everything was of high quality. Lots of thought had gone into doing even the small things really well. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.
Perfect for a couples (and dog!) weekend stay with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Well styled, very comfy bed with cosy sheets and the bath is a dreamy to sink into. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!
Delightful few days spent atThe Writers Loft. More spacious than photographs suggest, with several places to sit both inside and out. Location is perfect, especially for visiting Booderee National Park. Very prompt response (and fix) when we had a problem with one of the heaters. Would happily return for a longer stay.
Stunning place, loved the back deck for charcuterie and wine and the bathtub is just a delight
The Writer’s Loft is such a charming, gorgeously styled little space in a beautiful secluded part of NSW. We loved our stay. The bath tub and the bathroom especially is to die for.
Fantastic place! Loved staying here. It was clean, central and well presented.
Such a cosy place. Really quiet neighbourhood but a quick drive to all the beaches and eats. The bath was a beautiful touch. If you need a place to relax and unwind, look no further.
Great placeKate Gray - 26th February 2021

Charming cottage with beautiful personal touches. Relaxing quiet position close to the booderee national park with gorgeous beaches
Quirty cottageDeborah Little - 19th February 2021
I just loved all the nic naks and decor in this cottage. Made you feel relaxed and cosy in its surroundings. The canopy bed and amazing bathroom is definitely the highlight in this cottage. We loved the quiet surroundings yet not far to Husky and to the amazing beaches.
This is a gorgeous cottage for a weekend away or long trip. Luxurious and homey feel all in one.
The kitchen is so functional and the bathroom and bedroom is cosy and luxurious all at once. We would highly recommend this Airbnb stay.
Beautifully decorated space for weekend away. Kitchen is well stocked with cookware and a beautiful big bath.
Perfect and peaceful stay. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer. The house was filled with thoughtful touches that made it feel like a second home for the weekend. It is in a really quiet area and had plenty of privacy. The bathroom and bedroom were stunning, can’t wait to come back!
The moment we walked in we were blown away but the gorgeous and unique styling of the place. It felt very comfortable straight away, and the details such as the amazing bathroom and the book collection really added so much to the overall feel. Everything you need or want, comfy bed, air con, bbq, WiFi, parking. In a quiet location perfect for rest and relaxation, but easy to get to local towns and beaches. We hope to come back!
Great place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough for convenience. The house was well thought out, and had everything we needed particularly in the kitchen. Very clean with an AMAZING tub!
We loved our stay here. So quiet and cosy and in a great location, so close to the water and all the beautiful beaches. It definitely exceeded my expectations. Such a beautiful space! We felt so comfortable and at home! We would definitely love to come and stay here again. Thank you!
Such a cute and cozy loft! A very calming and beautiful space, it was also pet friendly as my cat loved it! The loft is very close to the beaches and local shops so the location is quite good too.
Had a wonderful stay at the writer's loft,it was clean and tidy and tastefully decorated,the bathroom is amazing. Large enclosed backyard. Very convenient location for exploring Jervis Bay, would recommend a visit
Very clean and stunning place. The whole place is well equipped
Amazing creative and very thoughtful place to stay. Location was perfect!
The Writers Loft was such a gorgeous little cottage only a street from the bay. It was only a 10 minute drive from Huskisson and 15 minutes from the Booderee National Park. Great house with everything you could need or want and a quirky and charming atmosphere. Loved our 4 nights stay and we will definitely be back again.
Definitely worth staying. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
We had the most fantastic stay! An absolutely delightful property beautifully decorated in a great location. It’s also dog friendly and couldn’t have been more perfect for us. We would stay again!
