Overview

About the property

This is the dream getaway with 15 acres of gardens, paddocks and fruit trees bursting with fruit and nuts in season. You can explore the large property or just relax.

The rambling 100 year old farm house with its 12 foot high ceilings and additions has charm and a beautiful fire for those cold months. Four comfortable bedrooms and two large living areas and separate office, allows you to embrace the rural lifestyle without compromise.

With your own jetty and pontoon at the bottom of the property there is direct access to the Shoalhaven River for fishing, kayaking, boating or enjoying the many water birds (hand launch boats only). The kids will love the swings, slide and tree house under the magnificent Fig tree. If you head down the road and across the car pontoon you will often find yourself alone on the idyllic Comerong Island beach. Great for fishing and long walks.

The old dairy has been transformed into a quaint games room and bar with two pot belly fires, a BBQ area and fairy lights that make it magical.

Come and enjoy an action packed stay or just relax under the trees while watching the cattle in the paddock. Have your own little farm for just a while.

Oh, and if you can shuck oysters, you are in for a treat.

Please Note: There are NO Party's permitted to be held at the property.

The house sleeps 11, however please read the Bedding Configuration below for all details.

Bedding Configuration

There are 2 two Queen Bed Rooms, A Bunk Room with 2 bunks (4 beds) and a Front Room with 1 bunk and a King Single bed (3 beds).

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We were on the South Coast for a wedding - slept our 3 families of 9 people very comfortably. The house was very well equipped and we loved the dairy. The weather was a little unkind, We would love to return one day for a few days stay.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

Carraway is the perfect holiday home in every way. The home is fully stocked and the setting is perfect. We stayed a week over the New Year and although it rained for four days we had enough entertainment for the kids for none of us to be bored, plus the scenery is beautiful. I highly recommend a stay here. Relaxing and picture perfect

Delightful property

  • 5 of 5

A great get away weekend for eight friends. The house and gardens are lovely. We enjoyed being right on the river. The house is well equipped, clean and tidy. We look forward to returning when the weather is better so we can utilise the gardens and river more.
