About the property

Excellent place for a break from city life. Scenic Stanwell Park has much to offer for a long weekend stay or vacation holiday. Less than an hour from Sydney or 30 minutes from Wollongong, you can be unwinding after a short drive from home but still seem like worlds away from the city.

Our comfortable and popular Rainforest Cottage is only 300 metres walk to beautiful Stanwell Park beach through bush tracks or a short drive.

The cottage is set in rainforest with large grassed garden area.

The cottage accommodation consists of a queen size bed in the main bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dining/living area and a large covered deck with gas BBQ. The bathroom has a bath. The cottage is light and airy with large windows.

Handy location for attending nearby wedding functions at Tumbling Waters, Lilyvale, Govinda retreat or Stanwell Tops conference centre.

Strictly no "schoolies", events or partying groups.

Linen is included in the price.

Minimum 2 to 4 night stay.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful rainforest cottage - we loved it! The house is so great, had everything we needed and very comfortable. The children also had a ball looking for water dragons and fronts in the ponds out the front and feeding the King Parrot birds on the balcony. When we arrived Friday evening there had been so much rain so was beautiful to see and hear the waterfall behind the house, then had perfect weather for the family wedding on the Saturday. Would love to stay again some time. The little unit downstairs was perfect too for my parents. Thanks again. Jenny

We really enjoyed staying at the rainforest cottage with all the rainforest sights & sounds. We loved our encounters with the local wildlife including kookaburras, parrots and a water dragon. The locals were friendly & it is a very tranquil setting with bush walks & walking distance to the beautiful beach. We had a excellent time

Hidden Gem

Lovely house amongst the trees and birds. Very peaceful retreat. Comfortable and well equipped for our stay. Nice balcony to relax and maybe have a bbq while you listen to the ocean waves. Walk to beach and cafes. Will be back.

Very Tranquil setting!

Nestled right into the rainforest with animals all around this place is bright and airy with a big deck for dinning on. Very peaceful location, you can hear the little stream in the backyard from the bath tub!

Well-equipped and well maintained and a very comfy bed! We will be back

Tranquil outlook and fabulous undercover deck!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into this place we felt at home. It is just so serene. The view from the living areas is lush and the outdoor deck was perfect for just lazing about. The cottage was immaculately clean and well . It's small but a good size for a family and is well equipped. It's a short walk to the cafes (10 minutes) and not too much further to the beach. We can't wait to come back.
