Derwent by the Sea is a perfect choice for families or couples looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. It is located in the 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-hour drive from Sydney and 3 hours from Canberra this area has it all; safe swimming, great walks, idyllic scenery and plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating, bike riding, dolphin spotting and photography.

The yard and garden area is a fully fenced safe area for children and pets, ideal for outdoor games. There are a BBQ and outdoor setting out the back - a wonderful spot for sitting back and relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book.

Spread out over two levels with the upper level having an open plan lounge/dining room and kitchen with dining table, 2 lounges, TV and DVD. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, electric stove and oven, fridge, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster and more.

Downstairs there is another living room, a second TV, DVD and within this room is another bed. The double garage has a table tennis table and plenty of room to store bikes, boards and more.

The air conditioner provides comfort for both summer and winter stays.

Derwent by the Sea is a 300 m stroll from Callala Bay. Visitors can follow the walking track along the spectacular Callala Bay Headland to the beautiful Callala Beach. The boat ramp is located a short drive from the house or bring the fishing gear and throw in a line off the Callala Bay wharf.

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.

Great house with a fantastic location few minutes walk from the beach. Loved the big great downstairs room which was perfect for all the teenagers we had. The ping pong table was also a big hit.

Very good location - close to beach and lovely quiet area to chill out. The interior of the house is a lot more worn down compared to the photos. As per other reviews, cleanliness is an issue and host tried to resolve this by sending cleaners to the place (which we are thankful for).

July 2020

Perfect place to spend few days if you like somewhere quiet. The house is very spacious for a big family. Nice stroll to Callala bay and also to the shops especially IGA was very convenient. Highly recommended!

Derwent by the Sea is a great place for a family holiday. The home had plenty to keep the kids entertained and a short walk to the beautiful Callala Bay. We were very comfortable in the house and will visit again.

Lovely house and great location. Minutes’ walk to the beach and a short drive to countless other beaches. Not much in the line of places to eat out locally but if you’re prepared to drive a bit, there are a lot more options. We had a lovely stay here. Time slowed right down. The only problem was that eventually we had to leave.
