Overview

About the property

Casa el Punto is situated just off the beach as close as one can possibly be to the Illawarra's iconic Sandon Point, this exquisite home offers something for any holiday goer. Whether you want to play on the beach, relax, tour, or engage in a mixture of activities, you can do it all here without even packing the car....swim, surf, cycle, fish, picnic, play, or just lay on the beach! There are also a multitude of local sights and destinations to visit and/or experience in easy reach.

For beach lovers, this beautifully appointed home sits 50 meters across from Sandon Point Beach, with McCauleys/Thirroul beaches to the north, and Bulli/Woonona beaches to the south.....all patrolled beaches except for McCauleys. Plenty of sun, sand, and surf for everyone. One of the best kept secrets of this stretch of adjoining beaches is how tranquil it can be compared to Austi/Thirroul beaches during the summer. Even in the midst of the school holidays, you may find yourself one of just a handful of people strolling along the beach at any given time of the day (except on Sunday mornings when surf school is in session!).

For surfers: For the more accomplished, Sandon Point Break is well known for its awesome (and frequent) world class waves. It is a classic right hand point break. Additional choices for depending on your capability and the conditions include Bombie on the opposite side; the Reef (a reef break) about a 200 meters south followed by Peggy's, another righthander. You can check all of these breaks out from the front deck. Just further south is a another whole set of options including Bulli and Woonona beaches....and the reef break at Bellambi which has become very popular among the long boarders.

If you want the best of everything, accommodation, location, view, amenities, proximity to the surf...and a very custom personalized approach, then..... Casa el Punto is the go!

The House

Most everything for your stay is provided for....top quality bath towels, beach towels, linen, comforters, etc.and no additional cost. Use of pantry/refrigerator stocked with all the basic supplies at no extra cost (spices, condiments, sugar, flour, pasta...etc, etc)..no need to bring these items as you would with most holiday rentals. We even provide the coffee...Nespresso coffee with maybe a visit from George Clooney ;) Please inquire if you are looking for something in particular as we probably already have it. Boogie boards, bicycles, and other gear are available for our guests' use at no extra cost. Forget something? ...we'll either have it or can provide it. A food hamper that you specify for your first night's stay can be provided upon request (at cost)....as can child minding services.

The Location

Hard to beat the location...spend a day at the beach? Just walk out the front door. Not much to pack up when it's only 50 meters to the sand! ...or have a picnic on the grass overlooking the beach. A large canopy and eskies are available upon request (included).

Go for a jog or a bike ride? A 13km bike track for walking, jogging, and cycling is right outside the front door and hugs the foreshore all the way into Wollongong. We've got bikes and helmets!

Enjoy bushwalking? ...there are some great trails nearby. There is a hiking trail up the escarpment to Sublime Point only minutes away.

There are three great cafes within short walking distance (less than 1k!) ...The Point Cafe (great food, friendly staff, only 150 meters away), Bulli Beach Cafe (great food, great views, best position), Ruby's (best value and a local favourite).

Thirroul Village restaurants and shops are minutes away by car or a relaxing walk along the bike trail.

The location is also a great base for a host of other adventures ....Symbio Wildlife Park, Sea Cliff Bridge, Hang gliding at Bald Hill, coastal drive through Royal National Park. Easy day trips to the coastal towns of Shellharbour, Kiama, Jamberoo, and Berry. Take a drive up through MacQuarie pass to Robertson and the Illawarra Fly.

For our international visitors, Sydney's CBD is an easy train ride (an hour and 20 minutes) through some picturesque country.

...or just kick back with a glass of wine and some canapes on the deck and enjoy the view!

Excellent Property in Bulli

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property very close to the beach and some quality cafes. Michael and Janice went well and truly over and above to make the property feel like a holiday home rather than a holiday house, catered very well to our young family. Access to WiFi, Apple TV and a huge (huge!) music library was brilliant when the weather turned. Will certainly return. If we had to pick a small hesitation (really small and only applicable to very young families!), it would be that our young boys (1-5 yo) and their curiosity became a small challenge with the fantastic range of music instruments and ornaments throughout the property, but also that with property being on a blind corner opposite the Surf Club (busy on weekends), you needed to make sure you had your eye on those wondering feet when leaving the property.

Amazing stay at Casa el Punto!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michael for sharing your beautiful home with us! It really made our wedding week extra special. We had several guests from overseas staying at the home with us for the week and it made them all want to move to Wollongong! The location is stunning and the house equally as impressive. Michael was very helpful and easy to deal with. Would definitely stay again and recommend highly to others.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by Janice who had just re-stocked the kitchen with milk, eggs, fresh bread & home grown fruit for our arrival: wow, what service. & not to mention the Nespresso coffee machine & pods at our fingertips. We loved our time there & will definitely stay again - thank you Michael & Janice for your hospitality & the enjoyment of your beautiful home.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5 adults and 2 small children) stayed at Casa el Punto over the Easter Weekend to attend a family wedding. It was one of our best holidays ever! Michael and Janice provided a wonderful base for our weekend. We can't believe how comfortable the house was and how many inclusions were provided to make it a truly 5 star stay. The food inclusions were excellent and we enjoyed all the comforts of home.. and more!! Thank you!!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay! Incredible location (just a frisbee toss from the beach!), views, well-appointed and spacious home, and friendly lorikeets (parrots) on the balcony. I could have stayed there forever if my Aussie travel visa would have allowed me! Janice and Mike (owners): Good onya!
