About the property

This 1960's quintessential Australian beach house will take you back to childhood holidays and simpler times.

One of the few remaining original Pambula beach houses it offers prime location on the beach road, just three minutes walk from where the river meets the sea. Lovingly refurbished in mid-century style, the house has ocean views from the balcony and both picture windows (lounge room and sun room) The open fireplace will have you snugged up for lounge room whale watching (July to November), the balcony will have you lazing in the sun, wondering if you should amble to the beach or make a G & T. A great selection of retro cooking books will have members of the family/group vying to create the best dish of the holiday in the well equipped kitchen. An extensive selection of books and DVD's (for both adults and children) are available for those most cherished quiet moments.

History, features and facilities

This house was built by my father, who transported the building timber from the Murray River area in Victoria over the Snowy Mountains in the late 50's. Pambula Beach was a sleepy and secluded haven at that time and still maintains a quiet and relaxed feel, no shops or traffic hustle and bustle. The lush native garden and adjacent bush block is rich with bird life and is visited each dusk by grazing kangaroos.

House configuration:

3 bedrooms: 1 queen bed, 1 double bed and 2 single beds

2 living areas: open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room.

Sunroom with special feature wave wall and sandblasted mermaid window

Ocean facing deck

Backyard: BBQ (a lovely new Weber!) and outdoor dining area

To access secluded Little Beach, stroll across the road and down through the nature reserve. A short walk across the rocks to the north takes you to a patrolled surf beach, and just around the corner to the south is the scenic river, a great spot for kids to swim and adults to fish.

There are abundant activities available here and in surrounding areas:

Beach and river fishing

Well designed walking and bike riding paths between Pambula Beach and Merimbula

Pambula (a 2 minute drive from the house) has a great Bakery, Wholefood Shop and several restaurant options

Pambula-Merimbula Golf Course

Ben Boyd National park: numerous beaches (open surf and river beaches) plus great nature walks through bushland and well informed signage on Indigenous local history (middens)

Dolphin and whale watching cruises (depending on season)

Local Restaurants and Clubs in Merimbula and Eden

Scenic Flights

.. and the list goes on

Beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the retro chic of "Rutherglen". The location was perfect, the garden delightful and the house a perfect mix of old and new. Thanks to the owner for a great holiday property.
