Description

The space

The uniquely different spaces are what makes this place special. There are four large bedrooms, the main with a king bed, the Bali bungalow with a king and double bed, two with queen beds and the 5th smaller bedroom has a double bed. Three have en-suites. Araluen House is able to accommodate a large family, a couple of smaller families or groups of friends. With plenty of indoor/outdoor areas, there is space for everyone to lounge around separately or together. I love the kitchen area, it's a fabulous place for everyone to congregate whilst cooking up a storm. The back gate leads to a short cut to the beach.


Guest access

The entire house with its four bedrooms and separate accommodation in the Bali House. No more than 12 guests are accepted.

Interaction with guests

My sister, Megan will be managing the property and will be taking bookings and will answer any of your queries. She will greet you upon arrival and help you with any questions you have during your stay.

The neighbourhood

Werri Beach is a wonderful surf beach between two majestic headlands with a paved boardwalk from one end to the other. Close to our house is the lagoon with easy swimming for younger children who may find the surf daunting. Gerringong has good coffee and a few nice restaurants. Minnamurra Falls is close by - a great family outing. The town of Berry is only 15mins drive away with antique stores, a wonderful bakery, deli and bottle shop.

Getting around

Unless you are happy to hang around the house, you will probably need a car to go exploring, or to visit some of the local shopping areas.

Other things to note

As the house has two large fish ponds, we don't recommend the property if you have small children who are unable to swim.

Perfect getaway home. It was everything we expected and more. The photos do not do it justice. Well equipped home with plenty of space. Balinese bungalow was incredible and loved the outdoor vibe for the bathroom. Everything was just lovely! Megan the host sister was very easy to communicate with and helpful. Will definitely be coming back to stay here!

We stayed here for a large family getaway. It was the perfect house for what we needed - lots of different areas to relax in, so close to the beach, large entertaining areas so we could have meals and relax together and a beautiful luxurious vibe. We felt like we were staying in a Bali villa!! It's really hard to fault.Thanks to the lovely Megan who organised our booking and made sure we were well looked after and had everything we needed.

For us, this house was PERFECT - 2 families holidaying together; a group of 9 consisting of 2 couples, 3 adult children anyear old. A mixed group and my biggest concern was everyone having the option of 'space' if they needed it. As others have said, the photos allow for pleasant surprises when you arrive. The media room, the upstairs lounge, the 2 decks, the garden, the Bali bungalow, trust me, there's space! The kitchen is beyond well equipped. The pantry had salt, pepper, oil, herbs etc... those things that are annoying to have to buy as you don't get through it all, plus tea and coffee. We had 2 birthdays whilst we were at the house (we DID NOT party - respecting the request of the owners & neighbours) and there are even spring form tins and a cake mixer and hand blender. Enough said! The beds are comfy, the bathrooms also well supplied. The space is holiday bliss - books for kids & adults, games, DVDs galore for down time. The beach is a stroll away - but not patrolled closest to the house (it is down the Gerringong end of the beach). Having the lagoon and surf beach together kept young & old kids happy = happy parents. The location is quiet, but with Gerringong local shops minutes away, by car and Kiama 12-15 mins, Berry is 25mins = all lovely and handy. So - any points to note beyond the bliss? Just three, and none of them are deal breakers: 1) To prevent the early sun waking our kids earlier than desired, we put beach sarongs around the blinds to prevent too much light coming in. 2) There is no storage for clothes in the upstairs double bedroom ... so you just live out of a bag or share a wardrobe downstairs. 3) When we arrived the mozzies were the ones who'd been having a party, and we were nibbled at - but found personal mozzie repellant, and mozie coils and plug ins for all the rooms. So - these hosts have thought of EVERYTHING! They were controlled and then disappeared. So easily resolved. So - as you can see, even the 3 'considerations' are easily resolved, and everyone LOVED this house and are looking for excuses to return.

'Araluen' is a truly amazing location. Tranquil and relaxing - even when 5 of the guests are 4-6 yos! The house was beautiful, with so many unique spaces to hang out. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I live in Sydney and escape when we can to our beautiful house on the South Coast of NSW. It is a home away from home for us and we have focused on comfort and a place to be with friends and family. We are lucky that my sister lives only five minutes away and is there to greet you and to ensure your stay is as perfect as it can be.
