Calle Calle Bay segment of Twofold Bay
Hamlet House • Eden, on the South Coast, has been completely refurbished to keep you warm and comfortable during your holiday. Smartly appointed, yet unpretentious and practical, the house wears its mid-century history proudly.
History. Built in the late 1960's, Hamlet House has been home to fascinating characters -- footie coaches, abalone divers, Olympians, boilermakers, and mid-century art-lovers. Imagine them standing on the back stoop or front porch, cup of steaming coffee at hand, watching the sky and sea, just as each of us does in the same spot, breathing deeply in the clean crisp air. Magic!
Overlooking Twofold Bay. Hamlet House offers stunning water views from the front deck, the fully-fenced back yard, and two of the three bedrooms.
Amazingly versatile. Park your fishing boat behind the gate or stash the kayaks under the house. Secure your gear in the lockable shed. Your family and pets are welcome at this comfortable self-catering holiday accommodation.
Flexibility. We love flexibility and have furnished with many options in mind -- take the black deck chairs out onto the deck to watch the sun kiss the cliffs across the bay, rearrange the dining area tables to suit two or a crowd, feed the crew from the bar on the deck or have a deep and meaningful conversation on the bench in the yard.
Rug up or sun-bake, write your novel or salute the sun, gather company or seek out a quiet spot -- lean into any of those options and more at this comfortable centrally located spot near the town, the pool and the beach.
Working holiday? Hamlet House offers unlimited wifi, so you'll have 24/7 connectivity. Cuppa at your elbow, windows open, and a short walk to town to stretch your legs or head down to the beach to watch for whales and dolphins. Head back for another go at conquering the world.
Inside Furnished simply with your comfort in mind. Reverse cycle air conditioning keeps the nights comfortable year round. You will find bits of bespoke design and locally sourced art and artefacts. Settle in and peruse the small (and growing) library of local history, fishing guides, local flora and fauna, and classics. Dig into the trunk for games to while away a lazy hour.
Relax. We hope you enjoy this stunning location above Twofold Bay, its central location, and exploring the fascinating South Coast hamlets as much as we do.
Hamlet House • Eden is an inclusive accommodation. Friends and families of all sorts are welcome -- fur family members too!
Thoughtfully designed for a relaxed holiday, Hamlet House features:
Boats and Kayaks
With a lockable gate and back-in access, your trailered boat can be made secure. The yard accommodates vessels up to 2.5 metres wide by 8.75 metres long. Secure your valuable gear in the lock-up shed.
Brought along your kayaks? Store them under the house through an easy-access gate.
The back yard is fully fenced, and now provided with under-gate skirting for those visiting fur babies smaller than our greyhounds. Your pets are welcome inside as well. Thanks for bringing along beds or mats for your fur babies to sleep on the floor.
Doggie refuse bags are provided. We appreciate your thoughtfulness for picking up your pet's refuse before you leave.
Family, friends, & couples
Hamlet House has a fully-stocked kitchen, easily cleaned surfaces, full laundry with washer and dryer, and plenty of beds for several generations, or groups of friends -- sleeps 7 throughout the 3 bedrooms.
Contemplating a romantic get-away for two? Hamlet House is just the place. Plenty of room, but not so vast a couple would feel lost.
Have fun exploring the fascinating South Coast, and return each day to warm, comfortable Hamlet House • Eden.
Hamlet House • Eden is located
Eden is equidistant from Sydney and Melbourne. Did you know Eden was once considered for the capitol city of Australia for just that reason? Just a pleasant day's road-trip, a smidge over six hours drive from either city, with plenty of time for stops at lovely little cafes along the way -- our favourite way to travel!
From Canberra? Three hours drive across the changing landscape of Australia, a capsule of undulating hills with grazing mobs of kangaroo alongside peaceful herds of cattle, awe-inspiring river valleys, sun-kissed dairy country -- some of the most beautiful countryside you'll find in this lucky land. Crest the escarpment and head down to the sea. Breathe deeply. You're in Eden.
Use Hamlet House as your base to explore the stunning Sapphire Coast.
Most of the Sapphire Coast hamlets are close by -- 15 or 20 minutes down the road, with a few within a 45 minutes drive along beautiful scenic highways.
You'll notice an emerging vibe -- interesting food, fantastic coffee, well-curated shops and galleries are all on offer. Stop for coffee, lunch or a sweet treat in one of the many coffee shops, cafes and bistros in the South Coast area.
Known for its deep port and good fishing, Eden has exceptional facilities at Quarantine Bay, just 5 minutes south of Eden. The three parallel boat ramps are soon to be expanded, fish-cleaning tables, frames bins, hose-off facilities are all well-maintained by the local fishing club. Two local shops and a chandlery support recreational fishing and sailing, and moorings can be found at Snug Cove and Quarantine Bay.
Hamlet House Access: Please note, stairs provide access from the yard in front and in back, as the property slopes toward Twofold Bay. Two steps provide access to the deck and house from the top of the property, six stairs take you to the deck from the parking area, and eight steps take you down from the house to the fenced back yard. The house itself is on one level.
It's hard not to fall in love with this gorgeous place. We did.
Becca and Amy, two rescued racing greyhounds, invite you to share their yard, and explore Eden. Their humans are in on it too -- an architect and an artist from Northern Rivers area of NSW.
We hadn't anticipated how much we'd enjoy the stunning environment and emerging vibe that is Eden and the South Coast of NSW. We are at peace here. We find ourselves breathing more deeply, slowing our pace down a bit. When it comes time to go, we are so reluctant to leave. You'll see what we mean.
End of day? Think captains chairs pulled to the deck, sun setting over the Bay, plate of freshly shucked oysters on the rail, cold glass of bubbles or brew. Couple of wet dogs drying off on the deck in the sun. Wouldn't that just be the best idea ever?
Hamlet House is expertly managed by Rose's Property Management, Eden.
