Cottage, Holiday house

California has the Big Sur, Victoria has the Great Ocean Road and just south of Sydney and its Royal National Park is Grand Pacific Drive with the spectacular Seacliff Bridge. Just one kilometer south of the bridge is "Seacliffs" - a stunning and spacious four-bedroom three-bathroom home standing in splendid isolation on a headland jutting out into the ocean far below.

This is the place to just sit back, relax and enjoy the uninterrupted northerly views of the thickly rainforested Illawarra escarpment as it tumbles into the Pacific in a series of sheer cliffs, rocky coves and sandy beaches . stretching out beyond the hangliders cruising the thermals at Stanwell Park to the Royal National Park and on to Sydney.

Set apart from the northern beaches suburbs of Wollongong, "Seacliffs" has just two neighbours, and a secret walking track to the small sandy beach at the bottom of the cliffs. A range of patrolled surfing beaches are just a just a short drive north or south, and it's a stroll to the famed Victorian-era Scarborough Hotel, and yet another version of that spectacular cliffhanging view.

"Great house and fantastic views. Even better than the photos. We didn't want to leave, but hopefully we can visit again soon."
Kaye, April 2011


Seacliffs is only an hour from Sydney's CBD by car through the Royal National Park or an hour and a quarter by express train from Central station to the local Scarborough train station which is conveniently located nearby.


The large two-storey home has a spacious open-plan kitchen, living and dining room with brushbox floors. Framed by glass bifolding doors, the rooms have uninterrupted northerly sea cliffs view and easterly views to the Pacific horizon. They open up onto oversized entertaining decks. The master bedroom, with ensuite spa bathroom, also enjoys the northerly view, while a second bedroom on the top floor has two single beds, which can be joined together as a king size bed.

Downstairs a casual living area with flat screen television and state of the art entertainment system, opens up to the gardens and the same incredible view. Another two bedrooms with shared bathroom make the house the ideal retreat for families or groups of adult friends to get away, cook up a storm in the large fully equipped kitchen, and enjoy shared good times . with plenty of room to get away from each other and enjoy some privacy in the house and garden's intimate spaces.

If you can tear yourself away from this comfortably luxe home and the view, there is a wealth of heritage and cultural attractions within a short distance on this historic wild coastline with its coalmining villages and fascinating industrial heritage. The Clifton Arts Centre in the next village north is housed in a classic early 20th century School of Arts building. A cliff-hugging train, with a stop a short walk from the house, connects all the villages and beyond to the South Coast and Sydney.

The southern, less explored end of the Royal National Park with incredible bushwalks between isolated beaches and over clifftop heathlands, is a short drive north. The adventurous can take a tandem hangliding flight or parachute onto a Wollongong beach.

Big city convenience, restaurants, cafes and delis can be found a short drive south in the bustling seaside communities, yet a weekend or extended break at "Seacliffs" will transport you to another slower, more relaxing time.
