YOU WILL LOVE
The uninterrupted views and spotting whales, dolphins or simply watching the swell
The proximity to the beach, rock pools, ocean pool and Coledale village which are only a few minutes walk away
The retro furniture, homewares and artworks that have been discerningly collected and curated
Comfortably sleeping 8 and the convenience and privacy of 3 full bathrooms
The pervading soundtrack of the waves and seabirds creating a truly peaceful and serene atmosphere
Coledale still holds that age-old charm of a seaside village. With only a scattering of shops and not yet invaded by a throng of cafes it offers a chance to truly get away and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Like the pleasures of a day spent exploring the rock pools with its scuttling crabs, mini-aquariums and the feel of moss and the sea underfoot.
A long leisurely and delicious lunch can be had at Mr and Mrs Smitha cafe known for fresh ingredients prepared well while the Cellar next door stocks an impressive range of wines to match. Retail therapy can be claimed at Earth Walker an eclectic homewares and fashion boutique or spoil yourself in the new Earthwalker cafe and gourmet grocer. Pick up fish and chips or get a beauty treatment at The Salon. The pace of Coledale is slow and a holiday here will ensure that you match its relaxed vibe.
If you need a little excitement Thirroul with its hipster coffee shops and posh boutiques is a mere 5-minute drive, while even bigger city delights will greet you in Wollongong. It is also a perfect base for day trips to the Sea Cliff Bridge, Sublime Point and the Royal National Park to the north. Head south for astop at Mt Kiera to the take in the views, or to the Minnamurra rainforest or the Nan Tien Temple. Check out the EmeraldAqua discovery centre for more information about Wollongong and the Illawarra Coast.

THINGS TO KNOW
The backyard of this home is not fenced, the neighbours along Coledale Avenue maintain an open garden design so that the sea can be viewed at its best. However, guests are asked to stay within the grounds of the property and use only the amenities of the house. The back garden also leads directly into the ocean and so this property is not suitable for young children as they can easily get out of the back door and to the water.
