This quiet oasis is nestled amongst Bundena'a tree tops. Enjoy the open space deck living. Lose yourself amongst the colourful antics of wildlife and bush cries of the kookaburra. Off st parking, WiFi & access to bushwalks make a perfect retreat.

The space

Enjoy relaxing in this lovely bush environment. You may not want to leave the back deck!

Enjoy Bundeena's white beaches and local bushwalks. Located just 50m from the entry point to local bush and coastal walks including Wedding Cake Rock, this is an ideal base for exploring Sydney's Royal National Park. The Jibbon Loop, Marley Loop, Wattamolla loop, Garie Beach return, and Bundeena to Otford Coastal walk all start here.

Guest access

When in Bundeena, you will be welcomed personally. Otherwise there is a 24hr key lock system with a code to access the keys to let yourself in.

Guests have exclusive access to the entire 2 bedroom upstairs space including front yard, front deck and rear deck overlooking the forest. The photos are of your actual space and view from back deck.

You will not have access to the back yard, as this is utilised by the downstairs unit space, you will see the closed gate leading to their space. Please note, my experience of the Blue House is that it is very private, especially given it is a suburban home in Bundeena on 920m2, surrounded by neighbouring houses.

If you have any questions or concerns about your stay, you are welcome to knock on the friendly door downstairs or the next door neighbours in the house next door.

Interaction with guests

If we are in Bundeena, we are happy to answer any questions about things to do and see. As an ex-outdoor guide supporting guests to have a wonderful experience is in my blood! You will find I have provided a comprehensive list of information on the kitchen table including topographic and general maps, Bundeena-Cronulla ferry and train timetables and local attractions.

Other things to note

Off street parking is available which is a premium on sunny weekends in Bundeena, as many tourists visit the Royal National park for coast walks and to visit Wedding Cake Rock; so parking can be challenging on Beachcomber Avenue nowadays! The house is on a battleaxe block, drive down the steep concrete driveway and the Blue House is on your left. Some people feel nervous the first time they drive down. I have a 2WD and its fine driving in and out. The concrete pad is roomy with plenty of room to manouver. Please park on the house pad only, not on the turning circle as this is used by neighbours.

There is a local IGA near the ferry wharf is available to purchase grocery supplies from 8am-8pm 7 days a week. There are local cafes for breakfast and lunch. There is really only one place called the Bundeena Bowling Club to eat at night, so you might wish to bring supplies to eat in.

When you arrive, you will sense the peace in this naturous environment. Please enjoy your stay. Friends. Romantic couples. Yogi aspirants. Outdoor lovers are very welcome and custom designed for you.

Please note:
- Leave no trace - leave the retreat as you found it
- From the driveway, there are numerous pathway stairs to front entrance.
- The retreat is a smoke free environment - inside and out.
- The retreat is a party free environment. Quiet dinner parties are just fine.
- Music to be turned off after 10pm as it is a quiet neighbourhood.
- There is room for one car on the concrete driveway. Please be mindful of parking close to the garage, so neighbours can drive in and out of shared section of driveway easily.

- Place recycling (yellow bin) and general rubbish (red bin) in the bins next to the concrete driveway. Bins are emptied Tuesday mornings. If your stay co-incides please take bins up to the street on Monday night. Please remove all food from fridge and bins upon leaving.

- Please keep the front gate shut - deer roam into the garden to eat plants!
Be environmental - turn off lights, fans, heaters when not in the house.
Close blinds at night for your warmth and comfort. The house is super spacious with big windows and high ceilings. The remote control to high windows is wall-mounted by the door.

- BYO food and drinks. You are welcome to use kitchen stores if you have forgotten something. Please replace or leave $ contribution in the honesty box for anything used or broken.

- Outdoor decks: the deck and furniture can be washed down the day before your visit, or even the morning of your visit and then wind or animals come through and leave a light film of dust, scat or leaf litter on the surface. Please know its been cleaned for you, but you may need to give table a quick wipe over to de-dust or the tiles a sweep - its part of living in the bush.

- Things that go bump in the night: the house abutts the national park. At night you may hear what sound like footsteps on the roof (possums), down the side of the house (deer who have jumped the fence and walk down the side fence to the backyard for grass), the avocado tree drops fruit on onto deck outside the main bedroom day and night from wind or possums - the noise can be loud and sharp, creaking ( being iron it is normal for the house to creak and pop when moving from heat of the day to cold of the night). I mentioned these things as I have received feedback some of the noises were unsettling without knowing what they were - so just wanted to cover it off that it is likely wildlife are roaming! If you are used to city living, perhaps lock the doors for peace of mind.

Michelle's Blue House was a real treat! It was so spacious and comfortable in the dome - shaped central living room, and has also 2 large decks that catch the sun and look out on greenery. Michelle has created such a peaceful and well equipped home, with abundant entertainment options like cable TV, DVDs, iPhone docks, and board games, and wifi. The kitchen is fantastic for gourmet chefs, as it has all the cooking gear and a well stocked pantry available using the 'honesty' box. It IS hard to leave such a beautiful uniquely designed place, but its location is right next to a fantastic National Park. The place is surrounded by kilometres of Bay and Ocean beaches, and many different bushwalks of varying landscapes and lengths. It's hard to believe this piece of Paradise is in Sydney!

Fantastic home on the edge of the Royal national forest and right next to the iconic costal walk full of rainbow Lorikettes.... fantastic place to stay. Michelle has good taste and the birds wake you every morning. Don't miss this one.

I love nature & outdoor activities. In Bundeena there are beautiful beaches, cliffs and forests to hike, run, swim, paddleboard, sea kayak, bike, and so much more. When not outdoors, I enjoy yoga and the simple pleasure of being with friends and family.
