Location, location, location! Headland Hideaway, as the name suggests, is situated on a headland, and has uninterrupted views over the Pacific Ocean and north to Kiama Lighthouse. This apartment on Marsden Headland is the most easterly property in Kiama, with only grass and rocks between it and the ocean. It’s just a 100-metre walk to the Little Blowhole and a 15-minute walk along the ocean reserve to the protected Easts Beach. Kendalls Beach is a 20-minute walk or a 3-minute drive.

It features spectacular ocean views right to the horizon and the balcony is the perfect place to relax away from the madness of the city. The balcony overlooks the reserve, which is on the Kiama Coast Walk (22 km between Minnamurra and Gerringong), so there are walkers going past, but that’s about as busy as it gets. Children love being out on the reserve and its a great place to fly a kite, hunt for lizards, pick some flowers, walk around the rocks and admire the rich birdlife. Watch humpback whales when they’re migrating north from June to August and south from September to November (when they often come inshore to rest their babies). Enjoy your own private sunrise and moonrise over the ocean magical. Oh yes, don’t forget the small but spectacular nearby Little Blowhole. It’s a well-kept secret that it is much better than the big Blowhole!

This well-appointed, comfortable, older-style apartment, in a small block of 3 with easy access, makes a gorgeous getaway for a couple or a small family who wants to enjoy privacy, stunning views and close proximity to beaches and walks. A portable cot and high chair are provided at no extra charge.

In order to keep the cost down, linen and towels are not provided but can be hired at the time of booking for a small additional fee if required.

Headland Hideaway is out of town (3 km) and makes for a leisurely walk in via the Coast Walk, past Kendalls and Surf beaches. Alternatively, it’s an easy 6-minute drive to find all you need in Kiama town centre with its harbour, lighthouse, other Blowhole, ocean pools, several markets, boutique shopping and an extensive range of cafes & restaurants. Many of the restaurants provide a home delivery service for those who prefer to eat dinner at home but don’t want to cook. Or why not cook up a BBQ on the balcony and enjoy the sea breeze, sounds of the ocean and starry sky?

If you are not out enjoying the sun and sand at any of the nearby surf beaches or enjoying the fresh air and sea spray on the Coast Walk, there is a range of indoor entertainment, including books, games, cards, jigsaw puzzles TV, radio, DVDs and CDs available. NBN WiFi is available at no extra charge. There is a small complimentary stock of groceries that you are welcome to use.

The apartment has gas heating and ceiling fan cooling. Being a ground floor apartment with double-brick walls, located right on the ocean and protected from the south & west, it tends to be naturally cooler in the heat of summer and warmer in the cold of winter. It’s a very comfortable environment!

Kiama is exceptionally well-placed for visitors and provides easy, quick access to many other interesting towns and places of interest in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven, South Coast and Southern Highlands regions. The surrounding areas include a delightful blend of dramatic coastal scenery, bold rocky escarpments and lush green hills. Great for country drives and walks. Its a truly delightful part of the world!

We will remember our stay at Headland Hideaway for a long time. The location has amazing views and sound of the Little Blowhole and waves breaking on the headland. The kitchen is well appointed, the lounge comfortable and really large, the bedrooms roomy with comfy beds. Little things - tea, cereals, choices of books on site etc - made a nice touch. We recommend Headland Hideaway for any short stay in the Kiama area.

Perfect for what we needed! We had an amazing week and we were fortunate enough to see so many whales migrating down south with their babies. Such a wonderful location, close to town and cafes. A great little Cafe and cocktail bar located on the same street as the unit. Lots to do in the local area area, we visited markets in Kiama on two occasions. Unit is clean and well maintained, lots of helpful extra such as a high chair and all the kitchen essentials which made it easy to prepare meals at home. The unit is located on the same street as the little blow hole. An easy walk to Easts beach or a couple of minutes drive to two other beaches, less than ten minutes in to town. So many lovely cafes and restaurants to choose from!Extremely well equipped kitchen. The rooms are very spacious and gave us plenty of room to relax without getting under each others feet. Lots of open space on the headland for the kids to fly their kites and kick a ball around.Nice and light with tasteful furnishings, very quiet and relaxing at night, comfortable beds, great base to explore Kiama and the surrounding areas.Looking forward to our next stay!

Mel, Anthony & Oliver

We only stayed 2 nights, but I would have liked to stay longer. Crazy weather – storms and rough seas, but a couple of sunny mornings. We had a blackout for about 3 hours on Saturday after a big storm, but thankfully you had a candle and a deck of Uno cards! Also, loved the revolving pantry, great idea! Everything we needed for a nice, comfortable stay. Love little blowhole (probably more than the big one).

Five nights of fabulousness! Warm weather, cool weather, some rain and back to warm again. Perfect views of the ocean and moon… all the changing scenes and seasons.

We stayed here for 8 nights. We loved playing cards on the balcony, looking at the Little Blowhole and getting wet. We also enjoyed exploring the rain forest and Jamberoo Action Park, we didn’t get to go to the big Blowhole, but we went last time. We really enjoyed the apartment, Thank you.P.s My brother (Lachie) lost three teeth while we were here.

The Elliotts

We have had another exciting and memorable week in lovely Kiama. Tumut has had temperatures up to 44 degrees and we have been spoilt with 28 degrees. Visited the Aviation Museum at Albion Park and were inspired by the passion the volunteers have when we did our tour. As always, our unit was perfect and has amazing views. The Little Blowhole was blowing well. We love being in Kiama and thank you for all the home comforts. We will be back.

Beautiful views, fantastic location, so lovely and clean and homely. PERFECT
