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.

The local attractions include Callala Beach a 15-minute drive away. Towards Currarong, you'll find many more secluded white sandy beaches including gorgeous Honeymoon Bay. Delicious seafood is available at Greenwell Point.

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; 3 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 2.5 hours from Sydney and 3 hours from Canberra.

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

Amazing view Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Escape! The house is well set up with everything you could possibly ever need. We love to cook and were constantly amazed by how well stocked the pantry was and all the appliances! The deck is were we spent the most time relaxing looking at the view with glass of wine in hand and in between we would wander down the garden to the beach with the dogs for a dip or a long walk along the beach to the lifehouse. We could not fault this place it was amazing right down to the most delicious caramel slice waiting for us on arival paired with a decadent bottle of Silos Estate Shiraz! We will definetly be coming back!

What an unbelievable stay we all had leading up to my wedding with my five bridesmaids. If that view wasn't enough, the house was immaculate, the attention to detail was second to none with a fully stocked kitchen cupboard, all linen and towels provided with added bathroom amenties and even wood for the fire stacked and ready to roll. I can not recommend this property highly enough. Jen was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and I look forward to many more dealings with her and her glorious Escape!

Bliss in the perfect luxury beachside home

  • 5 of 5

Escape is located in an ideal spot with unbelievable views and direct beach access at one of NSW's most beautiful and convenient southern beaches.

The house is incredible, and Jen has thought of absolutely everything. Everything about the house is of the highest quality, and it feels like a home. The kitchen is better stocked than any holiday home I have ever seen (or even most peoples' full time homes)!

It was the perfect place to unwind, enjoy the beach during the day and play board games, enjoy a glass of wine and light a fire in the evening - and we even spotted whales from the backyard. We will be back!

Thank you Jen!

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!
