Open plan living in a bright, lovingly renovated beach house. Soundwaves is all about comfort and location. The moment you step foot inside you will feel like you are on holidays. Then take in the beautiful, private gardens and surroundings. As Soundwaves is located directly across from the Callala Beach Reserve, you really are less than a one minute walk from the white sands of Jervis Bay. Open the front gate and simply enjoy the short stroll through the beautiful Bangalay Sand Forest. Callala Beach is the longest beach in Jervis Bay stretching for 5km. So if you like long walks on the beach this is the place for you. Also, because Callala beach is flanked with bushland along much of its shores, you will be able to find those private and deserted stretches during the busier periods (unlike Hyams and the Huskisson/Vincentia beaches).

After a few hours at the beach and you're back at Soundwaves, sit on the huge decks that surround two sides of the house. Feel like you are a million miles away from it all because you will be surrounded by gardens and bushland. Choose where you would like to relax: undercover at the outdoor setting, on the comfy beach chairs reading a book or snoozing on the sunbeds. If you want to sunbake, the western facing deck is the place to be: ideal after a swim; have a hot outdoor shower and soak up the rays. If you prefer, sit inside with the comfort of ceiling fans and air conditioning. At night, turn on the BBQ and enjoy alfresco dining with the ambience of outdoor lighting.

The house enjoys open plan living with kitchen bench style seating to keep the chef company. Soundwaves is set up to cater for couples and small families with one queen size bedroom and one double. We will supply you with all your linen and bath towels. Just bring your beach towels! We do not allow large groups at Soundwaves. Also, please note the owners are not too away and can be easily contacted if you ever need us.

At Soundwaves, we have even allocated a room for your furry friends. Here, you will find bedding, bowls and even a basket of toys! Please note that we only allow well behaved, socialised pets who will not destroy the gardens. There are grassed areas but if you choose to bring your dog he or she must be kept off all landscaped areas. The garden is fully fenced. We accept pets upon application and you will need to notify the owners if you are bringing your pet/s.

Soundwaves is noted for its very well-equipped kitchen. This used to be our home and we have left it set up just like our home, rather than a holiday rental. There will be pantry supplies like cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, spreads etc so that you do not have to pack these things. The fridge and freezer contain condiments and an ice tray for those afternoon drinks. Out the back there is even a herb garden! We suggest that on your way through you stop at Nowra Fresh (fish and meat market with a grocer and delicatessen next door) and stock up the freezer. This way you really can make the most of your time, enjoy the house and the stunning Callala Beach. If you run short of supplies there is always the Callala Bay IGA, bakery, liquor shop, chemist etc just a 3 minute drive away. A trip to Culburra (only 10 minutes away) boasts Woolworths, BWS, a few boutiques and a wider range of shops and cafes. Or do as many of our other guests do and order your Woolworths online and have it delivered to your door! Callala Beach has a nice little Italian restaurant, take away, a bowling club/RSL and a hairdresser/beautician.

The owners of Soundwaves also own a gorgeous vintage coffee van - Arnold Vintage Coffee Van - and guests of Soundwaves will receive complimentary coffee and coffee/drink cards. Delicious organic coffee and snacks by the water at Myola!

On weekends and during most school holidays, take a short drive to the southern end of Callala Beach where you will come to the village of Myola. Here you will be able to get on board the Husky Ferry and explore Husksisson's beaches, shops, restaurants and cafes.

In addition, there is plenty of parking at Soundwaves, and a carport. You could even bring the boat. There is a boat ramp at both Callala Bay and Myola. The location of Soundwaves makes it the ideal spot for kayaking with its easy access to the beach and boat ramps.

You will find additional information in the folder provided to keep you informed and entertained. We know you will love your stay and are confident that you will want to return to the comforts and beautiful location of Soundwaves.


We maintain a very high standard of cleanliness at Soundwaves so that our guests feel comfortable and can enjoy the space. We require that all guests leave the house in an orderly and tidy manner. Pets must be cleaned after and are not allowed on the furniture. If the house is not left in a tidy manner we will deduct fees from your bond.


Strict - deposit fees will be lost upon cancellation at late notice. Check with owners if you require further details.

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Soundwaves over the busiest time of year for ten nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Because it was the peak of summer it was a busy time for beautiful Callala Beach but still quiet and peaceful. We loved being able to just walk across the road and be at the beach in one minute and the outdoor shower was so amazing! The gardens at the house are amazing and the birds love the garden too so we had lots of visitors flying around - which was lovely to watch while we were having our showers! The cottage had everything we needed and was fantastic for our two children (6 and 3). Callala Beach is a wonderful holiday destination which we would highly recommend. Thanks Rowena for your hospitality. :) ps Be sure to visit Callala Bay for a swim (and the bakery there!) and Snappers at Culburra for a nice meal.

Delightful cottage with everything you could possibly need including reading matter and board games. It was lovely to be able to sit out on the deck and relax overlooking the lovely garden. Only a minute or so and you were on the beach. Will certainly go back.

Fantastic second stay at Soundwaves

  • 5 of 5

We loved our second stay at Soundwaves, the location is perfect for us and our dog. The cottage is well equipped & comfortable. We love the garden its just beautiful, and our dog had a great time as the property is completely fenced and the beach is a lovely walk through beach reserve. We'll be back!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Soundwaves for an impromptu family weekend away. The property isn't just clean, its beautiful and literally across the road from the beach! The kitchen had all the necessities plus more and we would have happily stayed an entire week.

The gardens are stunning, complete with all sorts of Aussie naive plants and lots of room for the kids and dogs to run around.

We'll definitely be back!

Beach cottage - pet friendly, peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic beach house for our 3 night stay. We loved the organised kitchen and the comfy layout of the house. Location to the beach is perfect with a lovely stroll through costal bush to the expanse of Callala beach. Our dog stayed with us and its great to stay in a house that genuinely welcomes dogs and has dog proof fencing & other pet welcoming items. A complimentary bottle of white, chocolate truffles went down very well and the fresh eggs - made a stunning omelette! We loved it and will definitely stay at Soundwaves again. Perfect 3 night break from Sydney.
