Boyds Beach House - Absolute Beachfront & Dog friendly - Culburra Beach

About the property


One of the most unique beachfront properties on the NSW South Coast. Once the home to famed Australian artist Arthur Boyd and his family. You will enjoy direct Culburra Beach access from the absolute ocean front property. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty and serenity of this stunning and well-appointed slice of South Coast heaven. Surfing, whale watching, fishing, exploring, cooking, long walks on the beach, painting or simply do nothing and unwinding, Boyd’s Beach House is one of a kind.

It is not hard to see how Arthur found the inspiration he did for some of his stunning landscape pieces when you soak in the views of the Shoalhaven from either the top floor, the beachside deck or the “lounge platform” perched on top of the dunes overlooking the beach.

Whether you are coming as a family, couples or for a romantic weekend escape, Boyd’s Beach House is the perfect, secluded get away all year round. Quality of experience is what we pride ourselves on and this architect-designed property has been furnished with your comfort and convenience front of mind. Casual yet luxurious, simply step in, make yourself at home and enjoy the serenity.

Culburra Beach is a dog friendly beach. We are therefore a pet friendly property. Bring your four-legged friend and enjoy kms of unspoilt sand to run and play on.

With 3 queen beds across three separate bedrooms there is room for up to 6 guests. The house is split level with decks off each floor. The master bedroom has a private ensuite. There is a large open plan living with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of natural light. For the colder nights, enjoy our wood burning slow combustion fire with a good book and a bottle of red.

The kitchen is well appointed with quality crockery, stainless steel pots and pans, sharp knives and beautiful glassware. Grab some of the South Coast’s fresh local produce and cook up a storm.

Just under 2 hours out of Sydney and with the convenience of Nowra 15min away, Culburra is the ideal weekend or holiday escape.


3 x Queen Size beds all of which are made up with high quality linen, bedding, fixtures and fittings. Just walk in and relax.

The master bedroom retreat has its own living area and en suite with shower , toilet and basin , large flat screen TV, and DVD player.

The second bedroom has its own private deck. The third bedroom has built ins.

There is also a sofa bed in the sunroom only suitable for one person or could be suitable for a teenager if 2 teenagers don't want to share a bed.

There is Foxtel and Wifi in the house.

Wood burning stove in winter; cross breeze, fans and multiple sunny and shaded areas to choose from in the summer

The upstairs sun-room is equipped with a sofa bed, cushions and throws . A room to relax in.

Or the iconic painting platform - now an outdoor seating area is a perfect morning coffee or twilight wine venue.

Please note that we are pet-friendly by prior arrangement. While the property is not fenced around the perimeter, the house is dog friendly and we do have a specially designed fenced off area for your pooch to relax in if you want to leave them home alone for a while. And remember, the dog-friendly off leash beach is at your door step.

Early check-in and late check-out whenever it’s available, and mid week and last minute offers in the off season.


Just take your towel and follow the path on to the golden sand beach before breakfast, and come back to the house for an outdoor shower , hot or cold. Sip on coffee on " Arthur Boyd's painting platform" with breathtaking views across stunning Culburra Beach, & you may spot the dolphins.

Nearby Crookhaven inlet and Greenwell Point are ideal for fishing and for the one who is not catching anything, there's delicious fish & chips at Greenwell Point and a scrumptious seafood restaurant too.

Lovely destinations nearby are Currarong with Bosom's Beach dog friendly.

On the way there, Honeymoon Bay is secluded and great for snorkeling & diving.

Jervis Bay is nearby for a day's outing with shops, beaches and cruises for whale watching in season.

Beautiful comfortable beach house in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cosy & private house a short walk down the hill directly onto the beach. A coffee on the viewing platform overlooking the beach is a perfect start to the day.

Kitchen is stocked with the essentials & the living area is warm & toasty with the fire going.

Culburra is a cute sleepy area, surrounded by great fishing spots & a short drive to Huskisson & amazing oysters over at Greenwell point.

Would highly recomend a stay here!

Just stunning!

4 women and a poodle had the most amazing weekend at Boyd's Beach House! The house had everything we could possibly have wanted including quality linen, decent china and a fully equipped kitchen. The new owners have maintained the character of the property while updating furniture and adding little touches to make it extra special. It was a bit too windy to try the new fire pit, but we did spend a lot of time on the raised platform overlooking the beach, enjoying the comfy seating and the local wine and snacks the owners provided. Sunrise from the upstairs balcony was spectacular, and we couldn't resist lighting the fire in the evening. Abby the poodle was delighted with the dog bed, toys and "chuck it", and totally exhausted after romping on the beach each day. My only regret was that we ever had to leave!

Gorgeous beach house with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

We loved Boyd’s Beach House! It is a beautiful, cosy house, with its own access to the beach. The viewing platform is spectacular, and the beach itself is lovely. Our boys loved running out the back of the house, straight to the beach.

The house itself is lovely, with lots of character. Beds are comfortable, linen clean, lovely soft couches in front of a fire. We also made use of the firepit and toasted marshmallows that Natalie had left for us in the welcome basket of goodies! So great!

This is a lovely house, in a perfect position, within the fantastic little beachside town of Culburra Beach. We would definitely recommend it!

Wonderful location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a group of friends and our dog and we had the most wonderful time. The place was spotless and there was a generous welcome basket of goodies on our arrival. Everything you could possibly need has been thoughtfully provided. The location is what really makes this place, and creates the sense of bringing the outside in - you really feel like you have your own personal beach. We made good use of the viewing platform and the heated outdoor shower. It can be a windy spot, but for us that just added to the wild natural feeling of the place. There are a few blinds that need replacing here and there, but all in all the place is beautiful and creates a lovely relaxing and home-away-from-home feeling. Great access to the beach, which our elderly dog managed well despite it being a bit steep to get up and down the sand dune. The height creates expansive views of the entire beach from the platform - a beautiful spot to sit and watch the weather roll in. It tended to get windy more-so in the afternoons, so get out and make the most of the calm mornings. We loved this place and would stay again in a heartbeat. We booked through Air BnB and the property was sold between our reservation and our stay The new owner Natalie was lovely to deal with, and the process was seamless for us. I'm sure that as the new owner she will be updating the few things that needed attention, which were mostly window blinds that didn't open and close fully, and an outdoor chair - neither of which hampered our experience in any way. I highly recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere where you feel close to nature but also have all of the comforts of home. A great spot for a bit of inspiration for writing or other creative pursuits.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you Kellie for your detailed review. Since your stay we have installed new blinds, replaced some outdoor furniture and bought all new lounges and a sofa bed. We will continue to update the place to ensure a quality stay for our guests. We hope you can visit again one day and enjoy the improvements. Thank you again.
