Southdown - Sorrento

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

If it is peace and quiet you crave, then this is for you.

Tucked away on this large, lovely treed block, is a rustic three bedroom cottage.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed, with an 80cm LCD TV with Video/DVD Player. Bedroom two has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a double bed with a single bed bunk on top plus a single set of bunks. Altogether it sleeps 9 people.

The kitchen is compact and equipped for all your cooking or entertaining needs. It has one bathroom and a second toilet.

Take in the tranquil views while you cook a BBQ on the front veranda, or sit with a cuppa out the back and look over the tree tops. The house sits on the top of the block so is very private.

If relaxing is what you want, choose from the many books, movies or board games. There is something for everyone.

Coffee, a swim or a walk in the National Park

If coffee is your "Cup of Tea" or hitting the shops, then an easy 20 minute walk gets you into the main street of Sorrento for endless cappuccinos or shopping until you drop.

Both the ocean and bay beaches are close by.

Within metres to the National Park, the beautiful walking tracks are there for you to explore the wonderful coastline that is "The Penninsula". Walk to the Coppins Back Beach for a dip in the rock pool or another coffee at "All Smiles".

Weekend Getaway or Family Holiday

Perfect for a romantic weekend for two. Or this house is set up to cater for a few couples to get together for a weekend away. The men can have a game of golf while the women pamper themselves with a massage and facial, then onto the shops.

A two families fit perfectly in this house. Plenty of games and movies for the kids, and a private front verandah for the parents to have a drink before starting up the BBQ.

Fantastic choice

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic choice for staying in Sorrento. Jo's place is in a terrific location: a short walk to Diamond Bay or St Paul's Beach; 400m from the St Paul's Road shop for the newspaper, coffees and supplies. The house itself is one of the best stocked we've ever stayed in. Great attention to detail. Within minutes of arriving we were saying to ourselves, "well, we'll be renting this place again!"

Privacy and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We love this place and will continue to book it! Set high amongst the moonah trees, and with views out both windows, it's so private and relaxed, you could be anywhere -yet it's only a short walk into town. Fully decked out with coffee machine, every condiment imaginable, indoor/outdoor games for the kids, hundreds of movies and books and the latest mags! A short walk to the stunning back beach and the kids loved the outdoor shower last summer. It's all been thought of here, been meaning to write a review for a while, we've enjoyed it all seasons now! Thank you.

Fantastic Getaway Property

  • 5 of 5

Southdown is so well appointed, clean, handy to the back beach and a lovely easy stroll into town. Jo has thought of all the mod cons even down to a welcoming bottle of bubbly on arrival. Ideal house for myself, a girlfriend and our daughters to truly switch off and enjoy. We are already planning our next girly getaway!

We had a wonderful stay at Southdown, everything we could think of, and more, was supplied. Even though the property is a little dated, it is extremely clean and very comfortable. The bottle of champagne was a nice touch, and I love it when a place has a coffee machine!!

Ideal beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very clean; very well fitted out with appliances, books, DVD's, and all cooking gear you could want. Very well stocked for condiments, etc - way above average. A bottle of Chandon, and boxes of Easter eggs were an unexpected surprise. A bit old school in style, but very comfortable, and close to the excellent Coppin walking trail along the cliff tops.
