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. 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 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 if 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, 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 beach, and a very custom personalized approach, then..... Casa el Punto is the go!
