Welcome to Quarryman's Cottage where cosy ambience and quality craftsmanship meets country style in a great location!
The cottage was built in 1893 without the use of any nails and is a great testament to expert craftsmen and builders of years gone by. It retains all the original timber and stone walls and a cosy ambience created by high ceilings, wood lined walls, polished floorboards and a claw foot bath in which to soak your troubles away. Originally built to house the quarrymen and their families who settled in the area to quarry for blue metal to use in growing Australia's roads and rail lines, it has now been renovated to provide pure ambiance, comfort and joy for guests visiting the area.
The cottage has been lovingly furnished and decorated with a mix of modern comforts and gorgeous heritage pieces to create a relaxing, comfortable vibe with aesthetic appeal. The utmost attention to detail and quality has been paid with the set up and presentation to ensure your break is stress and trouble free. Books, games, Wi-Fi, Sonos sound system, even a writing nook with desk and chair are all provided for guests use and enjoyment.
Deluxe bed linen and towels are provided (bring your own beach towels), there are cooling fans and gas heaters but the ultimate in comfort is the beautiful sea breeze that flows through the house on a summer's afternoon. Enjoy a coffee in the sun on the front porch in the morning or a cool wine as the sun comes full circle in the afternoon. Gaze at the blue ocean and if you are lucky, spot whales migrating as the seasons dictate. There is agas bbq and outdoor dining for when the weather permits.
Dogs and children are catered for at Quarryman's Cottage. The yard and the front verandah are fully fenced. There is a highchair and a porta-cot available at no extra charge. An additional TVin the twin room makes a great escape, as does the grassy back lawn and the very short 280 metre walk down to the harbour ocean pool - a great place to cool off with kids or swim some solitary laps for peaceful me-time. In the opposite direction, just 780 metres is the dog friendly surf beach, Bombo Beach.
All of Kiama's main attractions are within a 1km walk of the cottage: The Sebel Hotel, cafes, restaurants and boutique shopping, the Harbour wall and walk, Terrace shops, Farmers Market, Kiama Blowhole and Lighthouse, Kendalls and Surf Beaches. Further afield but still a very short drive is; the leisure centre, tennis courts, golf courses, surf lessons at Gerroa, deep sea fishing charters and Jamberoo Action Water Park.
