Although technically one of two, the unit FEELS MORE LIKE A HOUSE. The adjoining unit, beachdayz@kiama MAY BE BOOKED TOGETHER to accommodate a maximum of 9. Each unit has a private entrance and garden, and is designed to successfully minimize noise transfer between dwellings.

The cottage is professionally cleaned to a high standard using environmentally friendly GREEN CLEANING products.

A Portacot, Highchair and Valco pram with bassinet are available for hire - $20 each per stay, plus $30 refundable security deposit on cleaned and undamaged return for each item. No charge for the highchair.

Well behaved, non-barking dogs by arrangement and prior discussion to determine suitability. An additional charge of $20 per pet per night will apply. Please do not 'instant book' without discussing pet arrangements.

A bus stops outside the door on the hour, travelling to local shops, cafes and the Main Street (only 1.2km away, but a handy transport option). Kiama station is 1k away. Sydney is a 2 hr picturesque train trip from Kiama.

REVIEW in Sydney Morning Herald GOOD WEEKEND October 2015

"THE LOCATION: Kiama, on the NSW South Coast, is a port town turned tourist haven that swells with visitors during summer, but is an excellent getaway destination all year round. The region is a scenic delight, with sun-drenched beaches located a stone's throw from the gloriously green rolling hills of the hinterland.

THE PLACE: Located five minutes' drive from the town centre, Beachbumz is a beach house with a retro sensibility that radiates charm and comfort. Two bedrooms easily accommodate a family or two couples. The house is comfortably furnished with an outdoor verandah that is perfect for catching the dappled afternoon sun. The temptation to put your feet up and remain past departure time is hard to resist. Picturesque Kendalls Beach is a leisurely stroll away.

THE EXPERIENCE: Take a dip at one of three beaches nearby. Active families can wander the treetop walkways of the Minnamurra Rainforest, or make a splash at Jamberoo Action Park. For couples, a drive through the region's ambling roads will invariably take you past one of the many local wineries, while intrepid types can tread the six-kilometre Kiama Heights to Gerringong coastal track for some stunning scenery."
