Holiday Rental House
Retro Sands is a fully contained house located across from Bafleur Beach, Vincentia, in stunning Jervis Bay. ABOUT US.... We are a brother and sister team who share a passion for travel and staying in alternative, quirky accommodation, and love beautiful Jervis Bay. CONCEPT.... As we have both experienced many different types of accommodation through personal and work related travel over the years, we have combined as many positive experiences as possible, and used them to create a home away from home. As the architectural style is very 'retro', and we were lucky enough to obtain many pieces of the former owner's 60/70's furniture, it was only natural to follow and retain this theme. We have added original retro pieces, combined with some modern items, sourced locally, and all around ...Retro Sands is a fully contained house located across from Bafleur Beach, Vincentia, in stunning Jervis Bay. ABOUT US.... We are a brother and sister team who share a passion for travel and staying in alternative, quirky accommodation, and love beautiful Jervis Bay. CONCEPT.... As we have both experienced many different types of accommodation through personal and work related travel over the years, we have combined as many positive experiences as possible, and used them to create a home away from home. As the architectural style is very 'retro', and we were lucky enough to obtain many pieces of the former owner's 60/70's furniture, it was only natural to follow and retain this theme. We have added original retro pieces, combined with some modern items, sourced locally, and all around the world, as far as New York. We have paid the upmost attention to take you down memory lane, providing board games, books, music and movies from the late 60's and 70's, whilst at the same time providing some modern day comforts like a flat-screen TV and Blu Ray DVD player. THE HOUSE..... We have set up downstairs to be more casual, with the kitchen catering for outdoor and BBQ dining. Upstairs is more formal, with a balcony and large windows providing spectacular views of Jervis Bay. The house is located in a quiet part of Vincentia, with beautiful Barfluer Beach on its doorstep. The two story house features two fully equipped kitchens, 2 bathrooms, and three bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 8 people. It is perfect for both couples and families. INCLUSIONS AND PROVISIONS..... BEDROOMS - the upstairs master bedroom contains a double bed, the 2nd bedroom contains two single beds. The large downstairs bedroom features a queen size bed and two single beds. A curtain divider has been provided for privacy. This room is very suitable for parents with small children. We provide only the finest linen and bedding including mattress and pillow protectors, duvets, pillows and blankets to ensure a good night's rest. A quality towel set (face, hand and bath) is provided for each person, as is a beach towel. All bedrooms feature built-in robes, clothes hangers, alarm clocks and torches. KITCHENS - each kitchen is fully equipped with dining and cookware, utensils, glassware, crockery, tea towels, detergent, fridge and microwave. The upstairs kitchen also features an oven and Nespresso coffee machine. A small supply of Nespresso capsules, as well as a selection of teas are provided. BATHROOMS - each bathroom contains a hair dryer, bath mats, hand towels, and travel-sized shampoo, conditioner and body wash. ENTERTAINMENT - each living area contains a TV, DVD and stereo. A selection of 'retro' CDs, DVDs and books are provided to coincide with our theme. Local area books and information, and board games are also available. In the garage you will discover a selection of outdoor games including balls, kites and a beach cricket set. A BBQ, outdoor dining setting, umbrellas and sun lounges are also supplied. GARAGE - the double lock-up garage is available for your use. A washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and ironing board are stored within. THE LOCAL AREA... Beautiful Barfleur beach is right across from Retro Sands. Only minutes from the house is a boat ramp and Plantation Point, a grassed area featuring a kid's playground, picnic tables and BBQs. A new walking path in front of the house links up the various beaches of the bay. Jervis Bay has something to offer everyone, beautiful beaches, boasting the whitest sand in the world, national parks, water activities such as sailing, diving and snorkelling, dolphin and whale watch cruises, boutique shops, and delicious dining options .
