Belwood Retreat near Jamberoo

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Belwood Retreat is an ideal retreat for couples or up to two families who want get away for private time close to nature, while still close to beaches and activities. Very popular with families who visit Jamberoo Action Park and want a private nature retreat after their action day!

The house has 8 beds and can sleep up to 10 people (maximum of 8 adults). It is your choice whether to bring your own sheets and towels, or enjoy having them provided for $20/head extra.

There are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three toilets. A large lounge/dining with cathedral ceilings and an enormous deck enjoy a stunning 50km view over the Jamberoo Valley, Lake Illawarra and up the coast.

The house is set in a 7 acre clearing, surrounded by rainforest, tucked under the Barren Grounds nature reserve. The paddock in front of the house is home to 4 alpaca. Belwood is the last house on a private laneway, well removed from others. Other than our caretaker's cottage, the nearest house is around 200m away through the bush. If you have a large group you could rent both houses (sorry, no schoolies groups) - it is called The Birdhouse at Jamberoo and is listed on Stayz (just type 14980 into the Stayz search). If you have visited 'Cedar Mists' in the past, you will love Belwood, as it is at the end of the same lane.

There is a crystal clear creek and you are likely to see wombats, lyrebirds, kangaroos and wallabies. Wedge tailed eagles are often seen soaring on thermal currents. Due to its exceptional scenic and conservation values, the forested area is being specially reserved under the National Parks and Wildlife Act.

There is lots to do nearby. The property is 10km from Jamberoo village with the pub and shops, 12km from Jamberoo Action Park, 22km from Kiama beaches and restaurants and 20km from Robertson on the Southern Highlands. It is located 115km south from Sydney Airport.

More detail about the facilities:

- the lounge/dining has a large dining table with 8 chairs, a smaller table with four chairs for puzzles or games (and which can be used to enlarge the main table), a large corner lounge and extra chairs set around a built in-french fireplace (wood provided). There is a flatscreen TV with built in DVD player (BYO DVDs or USB), and a bluetooth Bose music player with an auxiliary cord. (Please note there is no WiFi)

- the kitchen has a gas cooktop and oven, microwave and dishwasher. It has crockery, cutlery, a Nespresso coffee pod machine (BYO coffee pods), coffee grinder & plungers, plus plenty of serving and cooking equipment.

- two bedrooms have queen beds, a third has two singles and the fourth has two double bunks (ie four beds). There are reading lamps, cupboards and/or dressing tables, new pillowtop mattresses, pillows, and two doonas (light and heavy) for each bed (top bunks have foam mattresses to meet safety rules)

- the deck is enormous, with tables and chairs for 12 people, and a gas BBQ. An olive tree provides gentle shade

- the whole house has been recently renovated, including a new bamboo floor and fresh paint

- there are two large bathrooms (with hair dryers) and an additional toilet

- there is plenty of outdoor parking

The house is set on a bench of rich volcanic soil and rainforest, with sandstone cliffs above. At around 500m elevation, the microclimate is exceptionally fertile, supporting a wide range of native species. There is plenty of room for kids to play or ride their pushbikes safely.

Fantastic property for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 middle aged adults celebrating a birthday. We had fun together in a great house. Kitchen and lounge area was perfect for our group. hubby and friend enjoyed playing with the alpacas and even kicked a ball around with one very inquisitive alpaca which he still talks about as his highlight. We went wombat spotting at midnight as we knew they were around but kept missing them. So we're delighted to spot 3. All in all a fantastic spot which we will most definitely would like to return to.

Staying here is wonderful. It is silent apart from birdsong, remote yet not far from shops if required. We are visited by wombats, lyrebirds, Roos, lizards, & rainforest of ancient splendour surrounds us, & from the massive deck we watch weather systems roll across the valleys below us. Comfortable beds, clean - I'd buy it !

Beautifully relaxing private space

  • 5 of 5

Went for a weekend getaway - fantastic rooms and beautiful house! The Bower was perfect to just relax and unwind whilst looking down at the amazing views. We really enjoyed the private and quiet space that surrounded the property, especially the kangaroos that we occasionally saw. Look forward to coming back soon!

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Bower was the perfect get away for my girlfriend and I. There was amazing views followed by the option of cooking a BBQ. Sitting next to the fire place looking out the roof to floor glass windows with the perfect ocean view made the stay relaxing. Shops near by made everything easy. Perfect location.
