Local amemities and interests
'Clifftop' is located right on top of the cliff with unimpeded views. You can almost reach out and touch the sea eagles as they often soar in the updraughts right in front of the house.
Whales frequent the bay in season and 'Clifftop' is the dress circle viewing location.
The house is very protected from prevailing winds and the northerly aspect adds to the warm ambience.
It is only a short 150m stroll to the one of the safest and most beautiful beaches in NSW. Cliff Place is a quiet, peaceful street with no through traffic. Only a short walk of 200m leads you to the famous Tathra Wharf, one of the only old heritage listed shipping wharves on the east coast of Australia. The fishing here is safe and productive with good seasonal catches of trevally, yellow tail, sea bream, mackerel and more. You can simply watch the action if you prefer while enjoying a great cup of coffee or lunch at the wharf cafe.
The local butcher, newsagent and supermarket are located right at the top of the street, just a short 150m stroll. Restaurants, clubs and the historic Tathra Hotel are all within a short walk for lunch and dinner, or a courtesy bus is available on request from some venues.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Just spent two weeks at Clifftop and we loved every minute of it. Paradise by the sea. Terrific location and very comfortable house with breathtaking views over Tathra beach, short walk to the excellent SLSC patrolled swimming beach and surf. Also spent some happy hours fishing off the Tathra Wharf where the fish were biting, bream and bonito. We' re already looking forward to staying there again next year.
Clifftop was built by my parents in 1960. Tathra was just a sleepy little town then.
I grew up in the house until I left for the city to university in the 1970's. In only a few short years I returned with a new family and 2 children to start a plant nursery and garden centre which we ran on our property 'Macropod Farm' for 28 years until we retired.
Tathra will always be my home and I love every bit of it.
My mother lived in the house until only 4 years ago, enjoying the views and the house itself. The house was loved by her and is loved by everyone who stays there. It is a great example of a quality retro house of its era.
We have refurbished the house with comfort and atmosphere in mind.
The garden at the rear of the house is a real surprise as it is built back into a temperate rainforest gully with many birds and animals within it. It gives a different perspective to the house with a rear deck for privacy.
We look after and service the house ourselves to make sure that everything is just so! We are very particular with cleanliness and making your stay as good as it can be.
Clifftop will remain a family home. Our children love it too and often come with their families to enjoy it and understand what it means to us all.
We have set it up as a holiday house for the comfort and enjoyment of holiday makers in mind.
Who knows, we may move there ourselves in future years and sit on the verandah, as the past generation did, and watch the sea, the sun and the sand.
