There's a queen bed and a sofa that converts to a queen innerspring bed (which needs to be folded away during the day), table and chairs, a bbq and a separate bathroom. The room is very quiet, bright, airy and spacious. It has recently been renovated with a beautiful new bathroom, skylights and handcrafted timber features.

There is a tv as well as an iphone/ipod dock to charge your device or play your music. Foodwise, we provide the essentials such as milk, butter, coffee, tea, sugar, oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.

You can check out the SeaCliff Bridge on the Grand Pacific Drive, visit the sculpture garden in Wombarra or just chill out by the creek. There are tennis courts 10 minutes walk away and we can provide racquets and balls.

The SpaceOur apartment is a top floor, north-east facing apartment, with glimpses through the tree tops to the escarpment and the ocean. It's in a small complex in Woonona, 1km from the beach, and has all amenities (including Wi-Fi) provided. The complex is private, as the entry is off the street and down a lane. The apartment is filled with natural light, and is spacious and very cosy. It has recently been renovated and now includes bamboo flooring throughout and a rustic, open plan kitchen/dining/living area, a handcrafted recycled timber island bench with induction cooktop. The study is equipped with a small TV, a fold-out futon, and a custom-built desk constructed from recycled pallets and reclaimed rosewood timber: comfortably set up your laptop and use our broadband wifi. The bedroom has a green leafy outlook through a north-facing window. There's ample built-in cupboard space made available for your clothes (there is now also a toddler bed in the main bedroom). The bathroom is spacious and includes laundry amenities: a washing machine, dryer and laundry sink. Linen, towels and a hairdryer are supplied. In terms of food, we provide the basics, milk, butter, oil, salt pepper, vinegar, tea, sugar and some condiments. There is a north-facing balcony. * Please be aware that there is not lift and the apartment is on the second floor. Guest AccessThe external of the building is an 80s brick block. There are shared clothes lines and parking spaces for residents. At times the parking at the base of the building is busy, so you may need to park on the street and walk 30 meters down the lane to the complex. However, if upon arrival there is no parking available at the bottom of the building, you will be able to pull up near the steps around the back of the building to unload. There is no lift and the flat is on the second floor. It will therefore not suit people with mobility issues. Interaction with GuestsGuests will have the apartment to themselves. We will either meet the guests upon arrival or leave the key conveniently for the guest. The NeighborhoodWoonona shops is a 5 minute walk from the unit, where you’ll find an IGA, a veggie shop, an organic shop (Manic Organic), tasty fresh Sushi, Thai, and a few other dining out options as well as other basic services, including pharmacies and a post office. All and Sundry is a great cafe at Woonona shops, offering good coffee and a seasonal breakfast/lunch menu. Thirroul village is a 5 minute drive north, where you’ll find many more cafes, restaurants and some lovely retail shops. Our preference for food shopping is Flametree Community Food Co-op (fresh local produce and organic unpackaged food and groceries) and Thirroul Fruit Barn (good deli section). The closest beach is just under a kilometre away. Quick to drive, but you can walk over an overhead bridge that crosses Memorial drive (the main road that goes into Wollongong) before walking down a quiet street to the beach. There's a cafe and ocean baths right there on the point. You’ll find loads of good surf spots nearby, including the famous Sandon Point, and beautiful bush and coastal walks all within a short drive. There are a few good yoga studios nearby - in Bulli, Austinmer & Woonona - and a blissful day spa 10 minutes away in the escarpment in Austi. There are also 3 gyms in Woonona, a 5 minutes walk away. If you follow the Grand Pacific Drive north along the coast the scenery is stunning. There's a few great places to stop along the way. Many people like to explore the boutiques on Moore Street in Austinmer, where you can also grab a coffee or a meal at Fireworks Cafe. You could visit the Wombarra sculpture garden or one of the many beautiful northern beaches or ocean baths. Stop at the Scarborough Hotel for a pub meal in the cliff-top garden with a stunning view and then continue across the SeaCliff Bridge to the beautiful Coalcilff beach, backed by spectacular cliffs. Stanwell Park beach is also gorgeous; and the stunning Royal National Park (30 mins) begins just a little further north. Before hitting the national park, head inland a little to Helensburgh to explore the Sri Venkateswara Temple (and eat a delicious dhosa, served only weekends!) or check out the beautiful Govinda Valley Retreat and book in for a delicious vegetarian meal. Every Sunday there's a farmers market in Bulli, 5 minutes from the house (Foragers Market) and on Friday morning there is a farmers market in Wollongong, a 10 minute drive south from our flat. Another 10 minutes further south visit the Nan Tien Buddhist temple. We are also only a short drive from Kiama, Berry or inland to the Southern Highlands. Getting AroundThere is a bus stop a short walk from the flat, where you can get a bus north to Thirroul (and further) or south to Wollongong. We are a 10 minute walk from Bulli train station and a 5 minute drive to Thirroul station, which is the point of departure for the express trains to Sydney. The train trip is very pretty and from Thirroul train station Central Station in Sydney is only 1 hr 20mins. Traveling to Sydney by car takes 1 hr and Canberra is also a straightforward, 2.5 hour drive. Other Things to NoteThis apartment is used as our home when we are in the Illawarra. Please care for it as you would your own :) We do not have air conditioning. The building has many internal brick walls so stays pretty cool in the summer. Having said that, if you experience a prolonged heatwave (high 30s - low 40s for days) there is obviously the potential for the space to warm up. We provide fans and there is also good airflow to manage these conditions.

The SpaceDouble bed room in family home (children have all left home). The 2 story house has a beautiful balcony to relax on, and take in the beautiful garden. But if you don't want to relax, it is only a minute to the lagoon at the end of the street, and a 3 minute walk to a pristine surfing beach, and across the lagoon is a bird sanctuary. The house is within walking distance of the train and bus, has free wifi and on-street parking. We are gay friendly. 5 km away is Wollongong, a busy University city, with theatres, cinemas, many sporting activities, spectacular lookouts and botanical gardens. You can choose from the many surfing beaches in the vicinity, or stroll along the bike path which follows the coast. We are an hour and a half south of Sydney, with its cosmopolitan vibe and iconic sights. Rie is a writer and Bob is retired. We have a small dog and 3 cats, so please don't expect a pet-free home!

Interaction with GuestsWe'll most likely be out of the area for your stay. Feel free to ask any questions The NeighborhoodThirroul is the beautiful centre of the northern suburbs of Wollongong. The area is famed for it numerous gorgeous beaches, rock swimming pools, and the dramatic green escarpment bush backdrop that overlooks the area and coastline. A perfect place to relax and spend time with your friends or family. Thirroul and the local suburbs have a thriving café culture, great alfresco dining options, charming pubs and many boutique stores. The wonderful beach is the one of the compelling reason to visit Thirroul, a sweep of golden sand backed by a large grassy park with a huge modern children's playground area, bike track, and close to shops and cafes. The town also has a lively arts community. The English writer DH Lawrence lived in Thirroul in 1922 and wrote much of his Australian novel "Kangaroo" here. Wyewurk, the home he lived in, is now privately owned, However, a park at the end of Craig Street offers a glimpse of the views Lawrence enjoyed. The Wollongong Cycleway is a purpose-built walking and bike track that runs parallel to the ocean and passes through Thirroul. It's dotted with cafes and parks to take a break. Nearby suburbs such as Austinmer, Coledale , Scarborough, Wombarra and Stanwell Park all have stunning beaches and wonderful places to explore. For the energetic, hike up the Illawarra escarpment for fantastic views of the region and an ice cream to reward yourself for climbing the final steel ladders. Alternatively, make a day of it walking the escarpment from Stanwell park or Coalcliff all the way to Austinmer or Thirroul. The famed Scarborough hotel and the Sea Cliff bridge are 10 minutes drive north, or find one of the many hidden coves, beaches or rock swimming pools that dot the coast. Regular weekend markets are held at Coledale School and Bulli Showground. Getting AroundThirroul is one of the 5 main train stations between Sydney and Wollongong. All trains stop here. In peak times trains run every 15/20 mins and take around 1hr 15mins to the centre of Sydney. It takes a similar time to drive to the centre of Sydney (depending on traffic). Wollongong is a 20 mins drive/train/bus to the south. Other Things to NoteMinimum number of nights: Generally there is a 2 night minimum (3 nights on long weekends) and also 5/7 nights minimum for a bookings during Easter as well as the Xmas holidays and other peak times. Please feel free to ask. There's a beautiful creek down the bottom of the house block. You might spot a water dragon (harmless) or an eel in the creek (they like to appear for some bread). There is a fenced gate to the creek. Note however, the neighbour's garden to the west is unfenced.

The Space"Berta" is a classic coastal house. High ceilings, light filled rooms, plenty of places to sit and dine. An ideal day would be to wake up, walk to the beach, return for breakfast and have a nap on the deck. Then a dip in the pool, a walk through town to visit the cafes and vintage shops, or a bush walk in the beautiful escarpment behind the house, and finally dinner at the pub, with dessert in front of the fire at home. It's a place to enjoy all that Thirroul has to offer, which is plenty if you like beaches, bush, cafes and shopping. Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire house, all to themselves. That includes 3 bedrooms, two living areas, a big deck, the bbq, the back yard and the pool area. We will either be away, or staying in a studio to the side of the property if you need anything. The place is all yours! Interaction with GuestsWe probably won't be there when you arrive, but we will give you instructions on how to let yourself in. The NeighborhoodWeatherboard houses and palm-lined streets make this hidden seaside suburb the perfect trip out of town. Tucked away in Sydney's south, Thirroul is just 1hr from the City. It has always boasted a brilliant coastline and beaches, but has recently sprung to life with a set of great new eateries and boutique stores. EAT Flanagans Dining Room Flanagans has been around for more than a year and specialises in seafood caught locally. Sitting right by the ocean in a 1940s Art Deco-style building, the atmosphere is peaceful and elegant. Thirroul Beach Promenade, The Esplanade, Thirroul The Shack The Shack (which used to be called The Tin Shed) cafe is the place to go as soon as you arrive for an all-day breakfast in the lush garden out back. It prides itself on its coffee, using organic, fair-trade beans from Sydney's Galleria. Pair it with something sweet from its extensive bakery inside and you'll come back in the afternoon for another one. 364 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul SHOP Plume At Plume you'll find a well-organised array of goods from top international and Australian designers including Kate Sylvester, Camilla & Marc, Alice McCall and Maison Balzac candles. Keep an eye out for this boutique's frequent sales; it often has excellent ones that are worth the trip down in itself. Shop 3271 Lawrence Hargrave Drive Thirroul Retro Wombat Antiques and Restorations This place is a haven of hard-to-find antiques and relics. Finding the good stuff requires a committed search – the building is packed floor to ceiling with antique fittings and vintage homewares. The treasures extends out the back where you can find old timber boats and miscellaneous parts of Volkswagen combies. 228 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul Finbox Starting out primarily as a small surfboard store, Finbox has expanded with a vinyl store upstairs run by Spunk Records, and a cafe. Its aim is to “supply you with everything you need to express and enjoy yourself in and out of the water", so come here to browse the boards and grab your post-paddle coffee. 269 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul DO Hop on the train The train trip down to Thirroul is one of the best ways to visit. The route is scattered with water and bush views and from Central it's only an hour and a half. Visit the pool Thirroul Olympic Pool was built in the 1930s, is parallel to the ocean and the water is pumped in from the sea. The car park and pool are free so swim at your leisure between the pool and the ocean as you please. Getting AroundEverything is within walking distance of the house. Thirroul town and the train station is 8 mins walk away, and the beach 12 mins walk. You can get here very easily by train. If you want to explore more beaches along the "coal coast", or the gorgeous surrounding areas, a car is handy (and a bike is even better). Other Things to NoteWe are right next to the train line, which makes transport to the house easy, but it does mean that we also see the train going past from the back yard. Luckily the train only comes every hour or so on weekends, and every half hour during peak hours on weekdays. There are also infrequent coal trains which do make a racket, and can last for almost a minute, but they only pass a few times each day. If you're inside with the screen shut it's not disturbing, but if you're on the deck it can be quite loud.
