Jerrymara- Rural/Coastal Luxurious Country Estate

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

A glorious 50 acre estate with 2 dwellings of 5 bedrooms/ ensuite. Pool & Court

Stop the Presses!******* July 2018 Jerrymara has completed a full interiors upgrade!!! A sympathetically beautiful refit and refurb including Kitchen and Bathrooms. ********

We are thrilled to be included in Urban Lists 10 most beautiful Airbnb properties-August 2017!!!!

Jerrymara is a stunning rural home and estate in Willowvale near the seaside village of Gerringong. It comprises a lovely main Homestead of 3 bedrooms and a 2 bedroom Studio cottage- in total Jerrymara's 5 bedrooms can accommodate up to 11 people. Each bedroom has it's own ensuite bathroom and the cottages are set in a private country garden with champion sized flood-lit tennis court and 12m pool. There's 52 acres of coastal farmland to discover in all.

The main Homestead is a modernised dairy cottage and offers 3 light filled bedrooms each with an ensuite, a large open plan combined lounge and dining area and a magnificent, brand new country kitchen. All the rooms open to hardwood timber decks overlooking the tranquil gardens and picturesque ornamental lake. This Homestead is complete with modern features including WiFi and Foxtel IQ3, and heating to all rooms to keep the winters warm.

The kitchen includes a 90cm oven, a large multi zoned induction cooktop, 2 intergrated dishwashers, a Double Liebher fridge, a wine fridge , a Nespresso coffee machine. The Island bench is HUGE, and perfect to gather around (and has spare cupboards for you to put your groceries away)

This main dwelling can sleep up to 7 guests across 1 King bedroom (splittable into 2 singles), a Double bedroom plus full sized day bed, and a bedroom with 2 singles

Additional guest accommodation consists of a modern 2 bedroom (both with ensuite) dwelling - The Studio- with lime vaulted ceilings. This cottage has its own kitchenette (and Nespresso machine), lounge room, and heating, all set next to the verdant country views through wide bi-fold cedar doors. Bedroom 1 is a King bed (with trundle, handy for a child) , and bedroom 2 a Queen bed sleeping 4 adults in all.

Off the main deck is an ‘outdoor kitchen’ complete with BBQ and wood fired PIZZA OVEN!

In addition to the just completed interiors upgrade, we have lit up our beautiful gardens! Every night at dusk, a fairyland awaits you.

Outside the immediate gardens is a further 50 acres of calming rural space , where you can stroll, picnic and are magnificent views up and down the Illawarra coast line from the top paddocks-well worth the hike with a bottle of wine at sunset! Please do not approach any cattle or wild animals ( yes we have kangaroos!) on the property.

Jerrymara is minutes away from beautiful rural villages including Kiama and Berry, and under 2 hours drive south from Sydney. We are a private retreat yet only minutes away from good coffee and dining, supermarkets and boutiques.

Privacy is assured at Jerrymara and we aim to allow guests a carefree and free-ranging stay. We would stress however, that we are located in a quiet rural/residential/dairy farming valley. The peaceful amenity of our neighbours is paramount to us. Loud and amplified music, Hens or Bucks parties, are prohibited. Jerrymara will no longer take wedding bookings, unless they are under 15 attendees. I’m so sorry brides! We would be delighted however, for you to stay with us to prepare with bridal party and family, and take advantage of the gardens for all your pre ceremony photography ( and post if your venue is nearby!)

Jerrymara is perfect for a group of friends or family wanting a uniquely beautiful stay close to beach, golf, wineries and shopping.

About Kate Edis

Hello! My husband Glyn and I bought this incredible property in August 2017. It was a little neglected and tired, so we’ve been pouring love and a lot of backbone into bringing Jerrymara into her full beauty ! In June 2018 we are completely updating the interiors, including new kitchen, bathrooms and an outdoor bbq area with a pizza oven!

The gardens here are so special we feel the interiors should match !

Kate Edis purchased this house in 2017

Why Kate Edis chose Willow Vale

Her unique beauty, wonderful feeling of peace and calm, and fabulous position. Fabulous pool and Tennis Court, and rolling lawns with superb trees makes your spirits lift as you enter.

What makes this house unique

A gorgeous oasis yet minutes to everything, where you can connect with loved ones doing as much or as little as you wish.

Love sitting on the back deck with morning coffee or evening vino and just soak up the loveliness of Jerrymara

Jerrymara is the most spectacular property on the South Coast. From the breathtaking views and wonderful gardens to the cosy warm cottages, this is a property that you could only dream of staying at. Kate the owner was truly amazing and treated us like family. She went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and we cannot wait to return.

A piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Jerrymara Farm with my family - it was the most wonderful long weekend. The property is just beautiful, so peaceful and serene and has something for everyone! A beautiful swimming pool, great tennis court, a fire pit, board games and there are so many spots on the property for some time out to read a book or take a nap! The location is great, so close to Gerringong and Berry - great shopping and cafes/restaurants! The cottages are gorgeous and have everything you need, with an ensuite in every bedroom! Our host, Kate, was so hospitable and thoughtful - ensuring we wanted for nothing - offering to organise onsite massages/facials, catering! Marshmallows for the fire pit were provided as well! It was difficult to say bye to Jerrymara however, I know we will be back again and again!! Thank you Kate!!

Outstanding property and host

  • 5 of 5

Jerrymara is an extraordinary property.

It’s set in acres of formal gardens complete with pool and tennis court, fire pit, and avenues of shady trees. It’s just lovely!! You feel like you are totally secluded yet are mere minutes to beaches, shops, cafes. Apart from a quick trip into Berry, we didn’t want to leave the property.

Accommodation is between 2 cottages so everyone in our group of girlfriends could spread out and have space. And everyone had their own bathrooms !!!

Kate is a most accommodating host and nothing was a problem. She organised an incredible chef to prepare a delicious meal in the Jerrymara kitchen at a very reasonable cost, and the many many little and thoughtful touches she put in place blew us away!! We have never felt as ‘looked after’ on holiday before.

I can not recommend Jerrymara highly enough. It would be ideal for groups of friends and families.
