About the property

"Birbells" is proudly family owned and managed. We aim to provide a more personal experience for our guests by including some special extras to make you feel welcome. While you stay at our home, we want you to feel like it's your home.

Awake to the tranquil and calming songs of the local bird-life and the relaxing sound of the ocean in the distance.

Spend your days fishing or enjoying the wide range of water-sports on offer on the adjacent Forsters Bay, then relax over a wine or palate-cleansing ale as you watch the sun set over the Wagonga Inlet from the covered al fresco entertaining area on the upstairs balcony.

On weekends you can also watch from the balcony as the sea-plane lands and takes off on Forsters Bay, or enjoy a flight yourself.

If you're short of ideas on what to do during your stay, you can refer to the compendium which includes all the information you need on local "eats 'n' treats".

The kids will enjoy the downstairs rumpus room featuring a large flatscreen TV, lots of board games and leather lounges and beanbags to relax in.

The house is perfect for one or two families with sleeping for 4 people upstairs and 4 people downstairs. There is one queen bed on each level, with a further double bed upstairs and two king single beds downstairs. All beds - with the exception of the king single beds, which are co-located - are positioned in separate bedrooms - all with built-in wardrobes - so privacy is assured. We supply pillows and doonas for all beds. You can bring your own linen and towels or we can supply for a small additional fee of $25 pp.

The house features two bathrooms and two toilets - one on each level. The top bathroom includes a shower and bath, and a separate toilet.

The facilities on the ground level include a shower, with toilet.

If your family includes a dog, then he/she is most welcome to join you on your holiday in our house.

Our home away from home, can be your home away from home.

A chilled bottle of champagne awaits you on arrival, as our welcome to you. A selection of teas, coffee pods and hot chocolate sachets are also provided at the start of your stay.

When Narooma gets busy during peak holiday periods, this quiet location remains protected from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. So if peace and quiet is your choice for a holiday, "Birbells" can deliver this.

You won't be spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning views - water, mountains AND bush!

Leave the car behind, a variety of water sports are an easy 5-10 minute walk away!

If you're a water sport enthusiast, you can leave your car at home, as many activities are an easy 5-10 minute walk away at Narooma Marina, including: stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boating. You can also hire a fishing boat, if you'd like to drop a line in Forsters Bay - no boat licence is required. BBQ Boats are also available for hire for a great day out on Forsters Bay.

If you're bringing your own watercraft with you, the local launching ramp is a mere 100 metres away.

If you love seafood, but prefer that someone else catches and cooks it for you, the local seafood restaurants and takeaways are a leisurely 5-10 minute stroll away.

If the beach is more to your liking, Bar Beach is a five minute drive away, or an easy 20-30 minute walk.

A final note - and we apologise for having to make this point - as we pride ourselves in providing quality family holiday accommodation, and not a party venue, we do not generally accept bookings from groups of unrelated adults. If you are a group wishing to holiday at Birbells, please make an advance enquiry with your details before booking.

Great pet friendly accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for 5 nights. I loved the beautiful view from the upstairs verandah and how peaceful and quiet it was. The house was very clean and comfortable with all necessities provided. Thanks for having us Sharon & Steve. Hopefully we can visit again soon as I loved the area and there is so much more to see and do.

Beautiful Birbells

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I returned to Birbells again this year for a 10 day holiday. We both enjoy having a "no rush" break from our busy lives to catch up and do a few things together such as fishing, cycling and walking. The house is comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything you could need. It has plenty of space both inside and outside and most importantly it's quiet. It is situated in the most stunning environment with easy access to lake, beach and shops. We returned this year for many reasons but mostly because it's so peaceful. We have already made plans to return again next year. The communication and support from the owners, Sharon and Steve, ensures a worry free experience.
