The Space


Unlike most rentals, we don't charge for linen. Linen is provided. Beds will be freshly made for your arrival. This includes sheets, pillowcases, bath towels, bath mats and hand towels. All beds have pillows, blankets and quilts with covers on the beds. Please contact us if you require additional linen during your stay.

Free WiFi, Netflix & Foxtel are also included.

Chappies is a perfect choice for families or couples looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. Located in a tranquil village of Callala Bay in the Shoalhaven area, on the northern shores of Jervis Bay. Callala Bay is a fantastic holiday location. A pleasant 2 ½ hour drive from Sydney this area has it all; safe swimming, great walks, idyllic scenery and plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating, bike riding, dolphin spotting and photography.

Chappies is well set back from the road with large gardens and beautiful trees. The back garden is a fully fenced safe area for children and dogs; ideal for those outdoor games too. The rear covered verandah has a BBQ, gas pizza oven and outdoor setting - a wonderful spot for sitting back and relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book.

A ping-pong table and yard games are located in the rear garage.

Chappies is an attractive and uncluttered place to relax. The open plan lounge / dining room has a dining table seating 6 (which extends to 8), 2 lounges and wall mounted smart TV. Internet access is provided free, along with Netflix & Foxtel.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, drip filter coffee machine, electric stove and oven, fridge, kettle, toaster and more.

Chappies is also air-conditioned for your comfort. For those wanting a winter getaway the wood fireplace is perfect. Keeping the house cosy and warm. In summer the ceiling fans in both of the Queen bedrooms and the living area will provide you with that extra comfort on warmer days.

Chappies is a 350m stroll from Callala Bay and visitors can follow the walking track along the spectacular Callala Bay Headland to the beautiful Callala Beach. The boat ramp is located a few hundred metres away or bring the fishing gear and throw in a line off the Callala Bay wharf. There are two outdoor showers to wash off the sand once you come back to the house.

The local shops are just a 10 minute walk away and provide all you need for a relaxing coastal break. There is an IGA, a hot food takeaway, cafes, boutique / gift shop and bakery. There is even a day spa if you want to reward yourself with a massage or facial. You can also stop off on your way through, at Nowra Fresh and the Farmers Market to collect supplies. Callala Bay and Callala Beach also have a few lovely restaurants and cafes if you choose to dine out.

Nowra is only a 20-minute drive away. Berry is located slightly further afield and well worth a visit. Also, there are plenty of other pristine beaches to explore around Currarong, Culburra Beach or further down the coast in Jervis Bay. Beecroft Peninsula and the lighthouse at Point Perpendicular are also worth exploring.

The Neighbourhood:

Sitting at the northern end of Jervis Bay, best known for its boat harbour vista, safe bay swimming and dolphin parades, Callala Bay offers some holiday cottage accommodation.

There is excellent sailing from Callala Bay and a regional boat ramp and jetty provide easy access to the water.

South of Callala Bay is the iconic beachside village of Callala Beach which has a unique and delightful beach culture atmosphere smack bang on the north side of Jervis Bay. Well worth the short stroll or 5 minute drive.

Myola is a nice and quiet, one-street village just south of Callala Beach on the beautiful Jervis Bay. Here is where the roads ends and the Currambene Creek flows into the Jervis Bay. The place is surrounded by beautiful bush. You can catch the Husky Ferry to Huskisson and back from here.

Jervis Bay and Currambene Creek are fantastic places for all sorts of water sport activities. You can swim, fish, sail or surf as much as you like. And the bay is safe for children.

Some Guest Reviews:

"Ticked All the Boxes"

We were looking for a short winter escape, not too far from Sydney. We came across Chappies after a brief search on Stayz, and were more than happy with the experience. Chappies has a large secure yard, which was absolutely great for our collie dog. The host was great in advising us of the local attractions, along with some great local knowledge. I have to say Chappies was absolutely perfect for our stay, and definitely delivered more than we expected. Chappies is set back from the road on a large block with native gardens, which really contributes to a feeling of privacy. There was only one thing we didn't like about Chappies, and that was having to leave, but we'll be back in January.


Chappies is a fantastic little place, it's only a short little walk to the Callala Bay jetty. The house had all the mod cons and was lovely and clean. The fire kept it beautiful and warm and we were never short of wood, as Fiona (our host, was brilliant) regularly checked we had enough (there are big ceiling fans for the summer). The photos don't do Chappies justice; the furniture, bedding and even the BBQ all seemed new and some items had not even been used before. The yard was huge and our dog had a wonderful time running around the fully fenced yard. If you want somewhere that's really quiet, then this place is for you. We loved it and will be back!


The house was far nicer than the pictures uploaded. Very well equipped house with plenty of room for us. Close to the beach and the town centre. Fiona was very helpful during out stay, she responded to all my enquiry. Our dog loves the house too the well fenced garden was his favorite place to be.


Clean and tidy place, nice and new furniture/fixtures and fittings. Welcome homely feel, great back yard and facilities. Fiona was also really attentive and helpful. Area is great, particularly if you want peace and quiet with opportunity to explore the surrounding region. Thank you!


It's really nice. Exceeded our expectations, what a find.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can't express how much we have enjoyed our stay. Loved “Chappies” - comfortable, clean and cosy.

We took the trip to Currambene Creek at night as you recommended, and witnessed the incredible bioluminescence. Thanks for telling us about that Fiona.

We are sad to be leaving, but we will certainly be back. Thanks for our great stay.

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Chappies Holiday House. The house is extremely comfortable and is in a great location. We loved the fact we could take our dog who we knew was very secure in the large fenced garden when we went exploring the area without him. We originally booked a 3 night stay and enjoyed our trip so much we’re pleased to add another 2 nights. Would highly recommend to others and would be very happy to return.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the property. It was clean and had everything we needed. Thank you for providing a high chair for our baby. Our dog loved running around in the spacious backyard. The table tennis in the garage was a big hit. Callala Beach was beautiful only 5mins drive away. Cannot wait to come back!!

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Chappies, so peaceful and relaxing. House was clean, comfortable and secure for our dog. Great base to explore other areas of Jervis Bay. Make sure you speak to Trevor he has a wealth of knowledge of areas/things to do and more than willing to assist. We had great weather so this was a bonus, made use of the whale watching voucher Chappies provided and had a wonderful time. We would certainly book Chappies again.

Awesome awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including the dog, had such an amazing stay at Chappies! Its a well furnished, cozy house with lots of games/entertainment available. The photos honestly don't do justice - looks way nicer in person. Highly recommended for a family get-away :)

Beautiful haven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Chappies- the fireplace was a highlight and kept the whole place toasty. It has all the little luxuries that a place needs, including a games room for the kids and a variety of board games. It was clean, well thought out and the dog was even catered for- we will definitely be back!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Chappies and loved every moment. We brought our little dog, who loved trotting around the massive backyard. Even in winter, we loved walking the many beaches close by and enjoyjng a wine by the fire at night.

The house was very clean and inviting. Set back from the road, we had lots of privacy. My fiancé and I spent some time playing foosball and table tennis also! Lots of fun!

Excellent communication from the Hosts with no issues during our stay.
