OUR STORY - we came to Culburra for a cup of coffee with friends and bought a house! It was rundown, multicolored and derelict but in one of the best locations on the east coast of Australia.

Reviewed by SMH "52 Weekends Away " as the " Perfect Beach House "


Culburra is the quintessential Aussie beach side town

Culburra Beach is on your doorstep(literally)and Warrain Beach 5 minutes walk. Both are surf beaches. My surfing sons tell me its the perfect combination.

The "bowlo " is fabulous and Woolies has recently opened up in town so no more driving to Nowra for your shopping. It is a large, well stocked shop with long opening hours. Will home deliver - have your shopping waiting! There is also a fabulous new restaurant/coffee shop in the centre of town called The Little Snapper.

Culburra is nestled amongst some of the Shoalhaven's most beautiful countryside.

Near bye lake and Shoalhaven River for boating - 2 boat ramps.

Great fishing; beach and river, catch fish in front of the house.

Lovely beach and bush walks nearby; Jervis Bay, National Parks, Kangaroo Valley, Berry, Milton, Abrahams Bosom. Book on local walks available at Escape which also gives information about dog friendly local walks.

Great local fish and the best oysters in Australia from near bye Greenwell Point.

Visit fantastic local wineries and restaurants

Oyster farms at Greenwell Point.

Dairy Farms - visit a Robotic dairy farm, great fun!

Golf; several courses nearby

Horse riding

Great for bike riding. Culburra is very flat and quiet, easy to ride to the headland at the end of the street, down to the lake, river, lighthouse and shops.

Children's playground with picnic facilities 5 mins up the road or accessed from beach via Tilbury Cove.

Surf school just up the road; arrange surf lessons, hire boards, wetsuits, kayaks, paddle boards.

Jervis Bay is 15 min drive away.

Lake Woollumboola nearby is famous for its birdlife.

We are puppy foster carers for Guide Dogs NSW. Puppies spend their first 12 months with us prior to starting their "official " Guide Dog training .They absolutely love their holidays at Escape and we have lots of photos at the house or on our Facebook page. Escape@Culburra

An amazing "escape" in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this beautiful property and it didn't disappoint. Walking in the front door and seeing that beautiful view.. breathtaking. But it's so much more then just a view! It feels like coming home! The house is so welcoming and the little touches make it so special. My girls loved all the toys and had so much fun playing on the big deck and in the yard. But I have to say the experience is made all the better by the owner Jen. Jen goes above and beyond to make sure you feel at home and nothing is a problem. It was just like dealing with a friend. This is a beautiful house, and Jen you are an absolute star! Can't wait to return again!

Truly amazing place!

We recently spent a weekend at Escape with some friends, their children and our 3 dogs. We have stayed here previously, but our friends had not. They absolutely loved the place and by the end of the weekend none of us wanted to leave. The property has everything you need, is spotlessly clean and in a perfect position with views to die for!! We will definitely be back and have already booked up in December!!

We have stayed at most of the beachfront properties at Culburra over the last few years and Escape is without doubt the best we have stayed in. The location is unique with easy access to the beach and it faces due north which is a huge win in winter as sunlight floods all the living areas and the main bedroom all day .The open fire is wonderful and heats the whole house. Views are spectacular!

The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with modern appliances and good quality pots, pans etc

Very child friendly and our little ones loved the toy boxes and large lawn areas.

We will definitely make this our regular Culburra No 1 choice.
