Our family had a wonderful stay in this house. Great location, very comfortable house and beautiful views over the ocean. Easy communication with the owner was a bonus.

Beautiful Property

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at 'On The Waterfront' in Wombarra. The views overlooking the beach were a breath-taking backdrop to enjoy with friends and family. The house was very clean and comfortable with all amenities properly working. We would stay definitely stay here again.

Great Weekend.

  • 4 of 5

On The Waterfront in Wombarra provided a lovely meeting place for us and our friends. We loved spending the first hour of our day together gazing over the ocean from the back deck. The kitchen was suitably equiped and the pantry well stocked. Sleeping in the main bedroom we struggled with the road noise but the room was warm and the bed comfortable. We enjoyed the walks and cafes that are short distance away.

Fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

That view! Front lawn has 180 degree view of the ocean and was a marvellous spot to make picnics, read books, drink tea, doze in the sun, and spot flailing whale tails. House is older style but comfy, and the kitchen has absolutely everything you need for cooking.

We'll Be Back!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay at On The Waterfront. The only downside was that we had to leave. Cute older style house but with all modern conveniences provided. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and a view of the cliffs, rock platform and ocean to die for. We couldn't have asked for more.

Fabulous choice

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at On The Waterfront. The house is spacious and modern inside - loads better than I was anticipating and represented great value for money. The view and sound of the crashing waves were magic and the short stroll through the lovely cemetery down to the sea pool each morning really connected us to the local environment. Easy drive to Thirroul and even Wollongong for dinner. The beds were super comfortable, ensuite is modern and fresh, quirky art and a cool black/white themed decor. Quality linen, extra throws to keep warm when sitting outside to soak in the sea views, well resourced kitchen, books, CD's and laundry. Very well thought through holiday house and I've been to plenty so well done Jane. Correspondence was friendly, timely and accommodating. Can't fault this place and would love to stay again.
