The space

Baybreak is a comfy, light and airy, 3 bedroom cottage, with higher end appointments and features, located just a few minutes walk from the beach & white sands of Vincentia, on Jervis Bay (not far from Hyam's Beach). It has lots of character, polished timber floors, beach house feel, large outdoor deck for alfresco dining & plenty of glass which captures the natural surroundings. The house is air-conditioned for comfort in all climates.

Guest access

Vincentia is one of a cluster of villages on beautiful Jervis Bay, Australia's premier ocean marine park, just 2.5 hrs easy drive south of Sydney.

The house is designed and furnished for relaxed living; the upper level consists of living-room, main bedroom (Q/S bed with ensuite) and a separate studio / sun room which offers a quiet refuge from the rest of the house. All 3 of these rooms open onto the elevated, private deck with an outlook through the trees in our garden. There are 2 other bedrooms located on the lower level of the cottage (one has a Q/B, the other 2 x singles), with their own bathroom.

The modern, fully equipped kitchen and dining room are located on the mezzanine level. Mod cons include large screen LCD TV, DVD, Hi-fi + Ipod dock, BBQ, dishwasher, ceramic cooktop, microwave oven, Nespresso coffee machine, & washing machine. We provide a selection of CDs, DVD movies, games & holiday readings for the enjoyment of our guests after a busy days recreation in and around the waters & bushland of one of the worlds most beautiful marine park reserves.

The house is set back from the road in a bushland garden setting, behind a stand of gums. Its a short stroll to beach, boat ramp, shops and restaurants. It will especially suite those looking for a relaxing break, close to the Bay's wonderful ocean playground and appreciated by guests looking for quality furnishings with those little added touches to make your stay all that more special.

The abundance of trees on the property are home to families of Rosellas, Lorikeets, Kookaburras and Possums and can provide a truly magnificent spectacle, especially at feeding time.

The beaches surrounding the area are renowned for having the whitest sands in the world. The calm, crystal blue/green waters of the Bay are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving, boating, kayaking, fishing, dolphin watching & in WINTER there is whale watching. Off the water there is golf, bushwalking, dining & much more, all within a short distance from the house.

The Bay & Basin Leisure Centre, an easy walk or 2 minute drive from the house, has an indoor water slide and pool for the kids or gym, lap pool and fitness classes for the adults.

Phil and Loretta's place is just as they described it, well appointed, very clean, a great layout for 6 people and very comfortable. The deck was lovely and sunny all day. Good selection of games and media for chilling out in the evening. It's in a great spot for walking to the beach or the shops. Very prompt and friendly communication with our hosts. The discount voucher for the whale watch tour is a bonus and the tour itself is very worthwhile, we were lucky enough to have two calves come close to the boat to play. Jervis Bay is a beautiful spot, plenty to explore. A five star experience.

Make sure you read all the house rules before booking and if you plan to use a second room for a couple, make sure you have a written agreement with owner or you could be charged an extra . Could be difficult to reach someone if an emergency. BBQ looks new and we didn't dare using it because we didn't feel like scrubbing after usage to leave it in the same condition (or extra cleaning fee of $50 deductible of a ''bond") despite having paid $60 for cleaning fee.

Response from Phil & Loretta:
Like all private owners we have a few simple rules we ask our guests to consider when staying in our self-catering family holiday house. When a party of 2 book we ask to be advised if they require use of extra bedrooms as we can offer a lower rate for couples staying double share. When requested by Francine we offered an extra bedroom at no extra charge. No extra costs were charged to this guest and its most disappointing its suggested otherwise. We do ask our guests to clean BBQ after use, so that guests following are not stuck with a dirty one.

Baybreak was a pleasant surprise - it was everything we could've asked for. The decor and homely atmosphere really helped us wind down over the weekend. Really liked the design of the entertainment cottage, and the backyard makes for the perfect star-gazing nights.
