Tilly’s Retreat - Pet Friendly-3 Min Walk to Beach
-> For Bookings between 25th Oct to 30th Nov 2021, all guests 16 and over must provide proof of full vaccination (or medical exemption)
Sleeping up to seven, this charming house on a quiet street near the ocean is set up with everything you need to enjoy the gorgeous coastal town of Culburra with your family and pets. With its coastal décor and cosy vibes, as soon as you arrive and smell the sea salt in the air, you’ll already be settled in for a relaxing holiday.
With air conditioning and outdoor seating for the summer, and heaters and a bath for the winter holidays, this house is equipped for all seasons. For those rainy days, the garage has been converted into a games room, containing a dartboard, table tennis, foosball, lounge, and full-sized fridge. It’s the perfect undercover entertainment for adults and kids, and a welcome respite from the heat on sunny days. Your furry friends can be safely ensconced within the fully fenced garden too. Whether inside or outside, there’s plenty of room for everyone, although you’ll have to draw straws for the room with a queen bed and its own TV.
When mealtimes come around, everyone can gather at the table in spacious living areas—either inside or outside—and enjoy fish and chips from down the road in the air conditioning, or cook up a storm on the backyard grill to enjoy the sun and sea breeze. There’s even an herb garden if you’ve got a chef in the family, or a slow cooker if you prefer to let technology do the work for you. We have no doubt you’ll want to stay for a while at this gorgeous property, so take your time and appreciate all the options Tilly’s Retreat provides for you to come together or spread out and enjoy some alone time. For some quality bonding activities, grab a console controller or a board game and defeat your loved ones in a mighty battle of wits and skill, or choose from their book collection and read outside in the hammock with an espresso.
Once you’re fed and rested, it’s time to see the sights! The shining sands and sparkling waves of Warrain Beach and Culburra Beach are just a few minutes walk away, as is Penguin Head with its breathtaking view off the point of the headland with the ocean all around you. You can even hop in the car and drive the short distance to explore Culburra Beach’s local shops and restaurants; the owners recommend Bamboleo Pizzeria Café for dinner! Of course, Tilly’s Retreat will be waiting for you to come back, rinse off the sand in the outdoor shower, and settle on the deck with some cold beers to watch the sun set. For a magically unique experience, grab the telescope from inside and see how many constellations you can spot in the clear coastal night sky.
However you choose to spend your holiday, you’ll make precious memories of love and leisure at Tilly’s Retreat.
Please note that we supply a number of basic pantry items at each property. We are, however, unable to guarantee the availability of all pantry items.
3 toilet rolls are supplied per bathroom. You may wish to bring additional supplies with you.

Fantastic pet friendly property - perfect location, clean and equipped with everything necessary for a beach holiday. On the weekend we were there, the neighbourhood was extremely noisy with a lot of parties going on - not ideal for kids to sleep. Besides this, we had a great stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Tillys retreat. We had our dog and an 11 month old baby and it was perfect for our needs. The house was sparkling clean and well maintained (though the lawn needed a good mow). The online guidebook to the house was very comprehensive and gave some good recommendations for the area. Super close to the dog beach and a lovely suburb all around. Doesn’t have the same personal service as many places I have rented on Airbnb that are run by human beings (as opposed to letting agencies). We didn’t hear a peep from them and they didn’t respond to our message (which admittedly we were able to answer ourselves) but I like to know someone is available if I need them. That however can be a real positive for some who likes their privacy! All in all it was a really good house and we would return. FYI you need to sign a letting agreement.

Very thoughtful touches like tea, coffee, sauces, spices etc and a very nice little story about how the place got its name. Worth staying here just to discover that story.

Tilly's retreat was lovely and we had a nice break down the south coast of NSW. Very close to the beach and great amenities in the house to keep occupied. Recommend highly if you have a pet and good privacy for a small group. Culburra is a great small town. Unfortunately the wifi stopped working after night one due to wet weather which was a let down and didnt work for the rest of the trip.

Great location which was central to the surrounding beaches. House was clean and tidy with good amenities and entertainment space in the garage and lounge and backyard. Only negative was that there was no wifi as the nbn was down and the 4G signal on our personal phones were extremely poor. Thanks for having us!

Beautiful spot where you get glimpses of the ocean and can hear it. It’s beautifully. Everything you need in one place.

We had the best time at Tilly’s Retreat. The location is so good for families and couples. Close to local amenities and a stones through from gorgeous beaches. The property is so well appointed. It’s clean and tidy and feels really spacious. The morning sunlight is fantastic and we felt so relaxed. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks so much for opening up this little spot to us. We loved it.
