There is something special about an Australian beach holiday - particularly if it involves being right on the water.
Sundara Beach House in Gerringong on the New South Wales South Coast is a brand new option for large families or groups of friends who are looking for a quintessential Australian beach experience.
The house is a luxurious six-bedroom, architect-designed property with spectacular ocean views located just footsteps from the golden sands of Werri Beach - and with the property only having been launched this month everything is brand spanking new, including the furniture.
Designed for groups of up to 10 adults, the house features a 10 x 4-metre heated pool and spa, entertainer’s deck, six-burner barbecue and a detached games room with pool table and bar.
There is plenty of space to relax and unwind with a sun room and two lounge rooms - one framed with large glass windows overlooking the ocean. Dolphins and humpback whales have been spotted during the migration season.
Sundara Beach House is owned by husband and wife team, Melanie Horner (who grew up in Gerringong) and Gaurav Singh. Sundara is the Sanskrit word for 'beautiful' and the couple chose the name as a nod to Gaurav's homeland, as he was born in Lucknow, India.
“I've lived in some amazing cities around the world, but Gerringong will always be my home and is very close to my heart," says Melanie, who has widespread experience in the travel industry and had a stint with Tourism New South Wales. "By launching Sundara Beach House, we're thrilled to be able to share our holiday home with others so they can experience the beauty of Gerringong and the NSW South Coast.”
“Gerringong is a gorgeous town, with a stunning backdrop. Quite literally where the mountains meet the sea.”
Close by are several beaches, a selection of restaurants/cafes and wineries, nature walks, including the 22-kilomtre Kiama Coast Walk, plus shopping and art galleries.
The house is just 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney and two hours from Canberra and guests flying into Sydney airport can hire a car or use Shoalhaven Shuttle's door to door service.
Sundara is priced from $750 per night midweek and $1000 per night on weekends - and I can't wait to try it. For bookings visit www.sundarabeachhouse.com.
