Alternatively, guests can use the outdoor kitchen and BBQ for outdoor entertaining.

The gardens are a wonderful green oasis filled with fragrant ginger plants. The courtyard is fenced which enabled us to be dog friendly.

WHITE Ginger is a loft apartment style space. It features New York chic charcoal and white with Japanese undertones, including delicate Shoji screens and timber floors. Black leather tub chairs and ottomans provide ultimate comfort for TV watching. White Ginger's open style Ensuite is unique with a wide shower, bidet, wc and a basin floating on a timber counter.

About Ann Gee

Alan, my husband and I have lived and worked in beautiful Sawtell for many years now and we just love it. I have a busy architectural practice and we are lucky enough to have built a new experimental building for our studio and residence. I work with our son Oliver who is also an architect. Our dog Gizmo is the the public relations manager. Alan and I love to travel. We also sing in madrigal choir. The choir practices weekly at our home. We love all music genres and I have been involved with Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium for over 15 years.

Ann Gee purchased this house in 1981

Why Ann Gee chose Sawtell

We purchased this property way back in 1981. At that time Sawtell was pretty but unevolved. We could see the potential in the area and wanted to make the sea change from Sydney. There was one little cottage on a huge block. 5mins from the ocean. We lived there for a while, then built a basic home and converted the cottage to the office. The basic home was serially renovated and became what is now Ginger. When the cottage office reached its use by date, we decided to build an experimental building to house the office and a retirement "apartment" for ourselves. that is when with a few small amendments we launched Ginger for holiday rental.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about Ginger is its generosity. All the spaces are large and comfortable. The three suites allow your travelling group to share and retreat as needed. The design is elegant, with comfort and style equally balanced.

You can bring your furry friends on holidays which is a treat.

Then, Sawtell in itself is a total treat: the beach, the restaurants & cafes, the boutiques, the historic movie theatre. Spoilt for choice.

As a holiday maker you can partake of sports, festivals, culture or just hang out and relax. The world is your oyster at Sawtell.

Fantastic property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better holiday property, location and hosts, everything we needed was at our fingertips. Could not recommend highly enough! Great house with plenty of space and good for entertaining. Ann and Alan are welcoming while still giving you your space and were there if we needed anything at all, they were fantastic. Stayed for three months and could have stayed longer! We will definitely be back, we had an amazing time!

Great property for 3 couples

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at ginger. All bedrooms /ensuites are separated from each other for privacy. Lots of room, great kitchen, outdoor area, living space, parking. Only comment was one of the bedrooms didn't have a door separating the toilet area but all bedrooms were spacious with sitting areas and TV.s. No fox or Wi-Fi. Lovely hosts. Great location for walking (10-15 min) to all the restaurants in Sawtell.

Beaches and vibrant cafe life

Ginger is an elegant and generous home nestled in a peaceful street in the heart of Sawtell.

Sawtell is a beachside community boasting a variety of visitor attractions including the main surf beach which is home to the Sawtell Surf Club. The beach is patrolled daily during most of the summer, and is a popular surf, swimming and fishing beach.

The headlands are popular for watching the migrating whales and taking in the incredible coastline views. At the southern end of Sawtell Beach you will find Sailors Bay, an area sheltered by a small island which can be reached at low tide. Here you will find a boat launching ramp, nearby parking, and tidal rock pools.

Sawtell’s tree lined vibrant village centre boasts an abundance of cafes, boutique clothes & jewellery shops, a variety of restaurants all within close walking distance to the main beach and a 10 minute walk from Ginger. Boambee Reserve is close by and is a popular destination for swimming in the estuary, BBQs and canoeing. Sawtell's (18 hole) Golf, Tennis and Bowls clubs are also within walking distance.

The Sawtell Chili festival in July is a great family day attracting locals and visitors. The street is closed and lined with market stalls, filled with music and fun.

Sawtell’s historic movie theatre was saved by local supporters, renovated to have the best seats in the district. It runs blockbusters as well as art film festivals.

Coffs Harbour is 15mins by car and has all the facilities of a large regional city.
