Eco friendly retreat ninety minutes from Sydney! Our house is on the Patonga creek side. To get there you need to row across. There is parking opposite our house where you access our boat (tinny). A five minute easy row across the creek and you are at Serendipity. Minutes later you are on the sun drenched balcony and the cares of the world wash away. Three bedrooms. Huge deck downstairs. Relax on the hammock or enjoy languid meals at waters edge. As we don't have town water or sewerage on the creek side our house uses tank water (straight from the heavens) and a rota-loo (eventually to the garden). The water/shower is gravity fed so no pump. The house still has original seventies furniture. The main thing we've added is the deck downstairs. That means it's a real holiday house. You can relax. There's another fridge in the downstairs laundry for extras. You're next to the National Park so plenty of great walks. There's also amazing birds, goannas and fish! Crabs to chase at low tide. Float down to the ocean as the tide goes out. Or do nothing. A good old fashioned holiday!
What makes this House unique
The water from the house is rain water from the tanks and the shower is gravity driven, no pump. The toilet is a rota-loo. The area is great for nature walks, fishing, swimming, bird watching and relaxing. Basically a simple way to get away from it all.

Beautiful, tranquil escape
We had a lovely weekend staying at Kimble's place. His instructions to find the tinny and how to row across the creek was very good and we managed it in the near dark. The house was very cosy and the bed really comfortable. It had all the amenities you could want, even a coffee machine! The shower isn't very strong at all, but given that it runs on tank water that was to be expected.
Our dogs really enjoyed the extensive lawn and friendly neighborhood dogs and overall we had a fantastic time.
Very chilled and relaxed, great view
Very good property, great scenery and view.kimble the owner was very informative and helpful leading up to our stay. We had a great time getting out of the city and relaxing. My young daughter loved swimming in the creek opposite.all in all a great family get away.
What an amazing place
We booked serendipity for the Annual Patonga Blues Festival to save the headache in getting home from Patonga.. best decision we ever made! Was so nice unwinding on the balcony with a few drinks after the long day...If you are bothered by nature, and not being able to take long hot showers and flush your toilet, don't stay here. But if you are after peace and serenity, and happy to get amongst it, do stay here!! Kimble was lovely from start to finish during our stay and all the amenties we needed were waiting for us at the house, which was really helpful in not having to overpack for the row across. The boat was great for a laugh with a bunch of friends and the neighbours were lovely too. Highly recommended. Would love to come back!
Location, location, location
Wow what a surprise, we had no idea how amazing this place was going to be and the pictures certainly don’t do it justice.
The views are gorgeous and changed throughout the day with the light, it made me wish I was good at painting, instead we sat on the balcony all day just taking it all in.
Even with the poor weather conditions it didn’t spoil our enjoyment as the house was very comfortable and had everything you would need to be on lock down.
The accommodation is cosy and beds hard to get out of as they are so comfy, the place is equip with enough heaters to keep you warm on the coldest of days.
Kimble was lovely and met us on arrival to motor us over, the tinnie was a little intimidating for us 4 girls and a dog and as the weather was poor so we were glad the Kimble offered us assistance and passage across the creek.
Everything in this accommodation has been thought out for you to enjoy your time.
Even though we couldn’t use the kayaks because of the rain, we did go out on the row boat and was surrounded with jumping fish that we’d never seen before.
We highly recommend serendipity and would without a doubt stay again.
Relaxing, generously kitted out, great location
The property is located right next to the water, with kayaks provided. Beautiful walks and beach close by. The house is well kitted out with extra towels, bedding and good kitchen essentials.
Breathtaking location. Excellent accommodation. Very friendly and helpful host
We stayed here for 2 nights. The location, the house, the view, the host were all amazing.
The host, Kimble was very friendly and helpful and assisted me with all my questions and provided additional info to help me get there. The house is very clean, tidy and homely with an excellent view at the front and a small park on the side. The neighbors were friendly and helpful as well. I will definitely come back here for a quiet break from life.
