Jervis Bay house


This house is for sale at well below replacement cost.

It has been completed with no expense spared.

It was a much loved home for four years

but has been available to the lucrative holiday market for the past 12 months.

The owners need to relocate,

and can no longer manage the busy holiday rentals on this property,

and have decided to reduce its price significantly

to allow them to focus in other areas of their life.

If it does not sell at this price, they will consider employing property management services

to manage bookings and to care for the property.


Designed to impress, this beautifully presented and functional home is a delight to view.
Light and bright and has stunning vaulted ceilings, open plan living areas that flow to an enormous covered north facing deck.
There are three bedrooms all with builtin robes and virtually every room enjoys a private garden outlook.
The grounds have been caringly and cleverly conceived to incorporate privacy and ease of care.
There is also a double garage and double carport.

The House:

The house has been built on a quarter acre block, using ecofriendly products and is easy care and low maintenance.

There is vehicle access to the backyard and a very large double carport and double garage/workshop.

The house has 3 large bedrooms, a huge lounge/dining/kitchen area, and a large bathroom with a second toilet in the laundry.

Heating, although rarely required in this climate, is with a reverse cycle airconditioner, but the design of the house with the large glass areas, high ceilings and cross ventilation keep the house comfortable without using it.

All wiring and plumbing is in good condition, as the house is only a few years old.

There is a large solar hotwater system installed, with the added assistance of an electric power booster, which is sometimes required ((very rarely) with heavy hot water usage during several days of cloudy weather.

The main bedroom opens onto a large covered deck overlooking the gardens, and is an ideal place to sit and enjoy life..

The gardens are easy care and low maintenence.

This is a great place to spend time, and is quiet and private, but only a few minutes from shops and the water.

The Area: 

Erowal Bay is a small sleepy village on the waters edge a few kilometres from Vincentia and Huskison.

The closest villages are HYAMS BEACH and WRIGHTS BEACH, both a short walk away.

Unlike much of the Jervis Bay area, which is becoming increasingly popular and is quickly being developed,

it is unlikely that Erowal Bay will grow very much, and yet it is so close to everything.

Surrounded by bush and water, at the end of a short road, it is bound to become more sought after as the years go by.

This delightful property known as EcoHide is fully landscaped and ready to move in to,

and is now on the market for $419,000

Last week a small bare vacant block just around the corner from this house, sold for $285,000, making this property a bargain.

There is a shortage of rental properties in the area, if you wish to rent the property out permantly for a while,

or the vendor is prepared to assist you with the relevant information, if you wish to continue to offer the property for holiday rentals.

Erowal Bay is approximately 3 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra.

Guest Reviews

  • What a beautiful house. The first thing I saw when we arrived was the gorgeous back porch. I could picture myself lazing on the couch just enjoying the quiet or listening to the kookaburras. The house was more than ample for the 2 of us and was a real treat coming from the city where tiny apartments are the norm. The decor is simple yet artistic and doesn't fall into the cliched "seashells & blue ocean bedspread" theme so many holiday houses in the area have.

    Everything we needed was there - the coffee machine (big hit), the dart board on the porch, cutlery and crockery galore.

    After 2 days at Eco-Hide, I didn't want to come home.
