Please note you are dealing direct with the owners, not with third parties so the only commission you will pay is the HomeAway "service fee". Our calendar is always up to date so you can book with confidence if the dates you require are shown as available. The only time this would not occur is if we receive simultaneous booking requests, but in practice this is very rare.
We have never "double booked" and would never ever consider cancelling a confirmed booking to accept a "better offer".
Discounts are available for bookings of 7 nights or more. The discounted price will be calculated automatically when you book.
All inside rooms were repainted in December 2017 giving the house a fresh modern look. All soft furnishings and decor were replaced at the same time. Updated photos are now included on this web-site.
Please note you need to provide your own linen and towels.
The house is available all year round including winter where we have gas heating. For summer there are ceiling fans in all four bedrooms, also in the dining and lounge rooms. Most summer days we get great north-easterly breezes through the northern and eastern windows.
The house is approximately 2 hours by car from Sutherland, 1½ hours from Wollongong City and 2¾ hours from Canberra via Nerriga.
Check in is anytime after 3 pm, and for your extra convenience you can stay until 11 am on the day of check-out.
There is a preferred two night minimum stay for our property at all times. At the owner's discretion we will consider one night bookings on payment of an additional amount, not exceeding $100, to be advised at the time of booking.
The house is in King George St, only one street back from the beach. It's only a short 260 metres, 3 minute walk to an uncrowded, child friendly beautiful beach on Jervis Bay where you can often see the dolphins. See the Google earth screen shot, included with our house photos, showing the closeness to the beach!
(Note - Dogs are allowed on beach off leash during certain times).
There is a small Italian restaurant and take-away shop in Callala Beach itself. There are tennis courts for hire near the beach.
Club Callala in Callala Beach Road has bowling and golf, also a bistro open 6 days, and a courtesy bus.
Only a few minutes away by car in Emmett Street Callala Bay there is a small shopping centre with IGA supermarket, butcher, baker, chemist, liquor cellar, a couple of cafes, hairdresser, gift & beachwear, hardware etc and not too much else !!

We love dogs and they are very welcome at Mar-Lins Beach House. We ask that you bring bedding for your dog to sleep on and that if they want to sit on the furniture that you bring suitable protective materials with you. Also we ask that you pick up and dispose of your dog’s droppings before you leave - to make the yard nice and clean for our next guests.

Great place to stay!
We had a fantastic stay here! A large house and well equipped! I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a get-a-away!
Thanks Paul for your kind words.
We would love to welcome you back to Callala Beach again sometime.
We all loved this house.
This is a lovely welcoming family home in a great location. Our group of two families loved staying here. There was plenty of room for everyone and an excellent back yard for the kids and dogs. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable and relaxing. It is only a two minute walk to a beautiful long beach where we could walk the dogs in the morning and afternoon.
Our host was extremely helpful with recommendations and information about the area. He also responded very quickly to a small issue with the fence and sent workmen round to fix it immediately.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Thanks Lea for your kind words. Hope to see you again sometime.
For the record, the problem with the fence was that a large branch from a neighbour's tree demolished a couple of panels on a Sunday morning, so we had to get a temporary fix.
We loved it
The property was spotlessly clean. The host was fantastic, plenty of communication to make sure we found our way.
Thanks for the great review. I hope we can welcome you back again sometime on a happier occasion.

Location is awesome！the house is exactly like the picture. large and plenty room for 5 adult，2 kids and 2 golden retrievers. You have everything you need in this home. Thank you.
Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your birthday night at Mar-Lins Beach House. Next time you will have to stay a bit longer to enjoy everything Callala Beach has to offer.
Has everything one needs!
We stayed at the house with two adults, 8 (!) teenage girls and our two dogs. A good time was had by all, including the dogs. With the large living area, deck and huge garden, the house is spacious enough for such a large crowd, in such a lovely location and so close to the beach. The beach is not crowded and off lead during certain periods for dogs. The house is fully fenced to keep the pooches secure.The interior, furnishings and decoration add to the holiday feel. The kitchen is fully equipped, dishwasher and washing machine a plus! We would all love to visit again!
Hi Hilke, Thanks for your review. Wow, 8 teenage girls, must have kept you busy! Thanks also for letting me know about minor maintenance items, e.g. light bulbs and tap washers. With the house fully booked for two months from mid December we don't have much availability to check these things between bookings. Graham
