Perfect Weekend, Perfect Location

We were offered a night at Culburra Treehouse on the NSW South Coast, and as I'm never one to say no to a trip to the beach, we gladly packed up the car and went. The sleepy little town of Culburra is roughly two and a half hours from Sydney, through some pretty rural scenery until you hit the coast.

The Treehouse is named because the main living space and outdoor dining areas are looking onto trees through the many full length windows and two balconies, so you get the feeling you're cocooned in the treetops.

The house has 4 bedrooms, and a pull out sofa bed in the media room, so comfortably sleeps 11. There is a wood fire for winter and screened balcony doors that make the living/dining cool and airy in summer. The 2 living rooms allow the adults and kids to have their own space, if you're travelling with two families or a small group.

There are plenty of board games, new ones as well as the classics and a large DVD library, again with new titles, as well as old favourites, for adults and children, so there's plenty to do if it rains.

In the shed, there are three boogie boards and four bicycles, with helmets (one of the bikes is a balance bike for preschoolers). There's beach cricket and a shade tent among other items so you can really make the most of your holiday location.

The kitchen is well stocked - there is even a coffee machine, and obviously plenty of plates and glasses, and some plastic tableware for little kids.

The beach access path is directly over the road, so it's a mere twenty or so steps before you make your way down to the beach, and that, if you've kids, is the best feature of this getaway. No need to get sand in the car, no need to worry if you forget something, just duck back and get it.

The beach is beautiful, and relatively empty the weekend we went, though there were whales breaching on the horizon so that was really special. There is a lookout perfect for whale watching, an easy bike ride away, but to see them from the shore was magic.

Check the Stayz website for price and availability, as it varies throughout the year.

Get some friends together or just go on your own - either way you are bound to have a sensational weekend and you won't want to leave.
