'Katandra' is the original historic waterfront property of Coomba Bay. Situated on the South side of Wallis Lake this unique property offers boutique accommodation with gorgeous coastal country atmosphere.

With 25 acres of coastal country charm to enjoy, from the homestead it is an easy level stroll down to the private jetty. 'Katandra' offers you a relaxing waterside rural retreat where well behaved pets are most welcome.

An ideal location for couples seeking a romantic escape, great for friends looking to catch up & get together, or a perfect place for families with children who will love the play-fort, swing & open spaces. Guests can relax on the daybed, soak in the sunset, play croquet on the lawn, or enjoy long lazy lunches on the verandah. There is also a small timber row boat kept on the property for guests to use.

The homestead (circa 1912), now tastefully renovated is nestled amongst grand mature fig trees & surrounded by long sweeping lawns. Designed to accommodate a maximum of 8 people, the kitchen & bedrooms open out onto the wide country style verandah, views sweep across the property, down to the waterfront & out over the bay itself. Guests can leave their kayaks or canoes down on the waterfront, moor their boats on the jetty, or take the row boat out to explore the bay.


The homestead itself features 3 bedrooms: 2 queen bedroom suites & a 3rd bedroom with two single beds. All bed linen is provided, on arrival you will find the beds have been made & are ready for you.

Should your sleeping configuration exceed 6 people, there is a double pull-out sofa bed available in the homestead's lounge area. In addition to the pull-out sofa is a quaint 'sleep-out' separate from the main homestead, the 'sleep-out' offers another queen bedroom suite. If additional sleeping arrangements are required, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the options available.

piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

my partner & I & our 4 pugs absolutely loved it at Katandra, so much to do or not to do & that's just on the property! plenty of activities left & right from the driveway all within a short distance, including swimming snorkelling boating, beaches, national parks, plenty of dog friendly parks & beaches, sightseeing, fishing, crabbing, great lakeside walking tracks, plenty of great places to shop & eat & drink, we kept ourselves thoroughly entertained both at Katandra & away to the point that both us & our mutts need a holiday from our holiday! The worst part about Katandra is that all good things come to an end & you must leave paradise to return to reality!
