1. Zephyr Kiama Easts Beach
Best for: multi-generational family holidays and long weekend escapes with close friends.
Zephyr Kiama Easts Beach is the premier Kiama holiday rental for families and/or larger travel groups.
The perfectly maintained property sleeps up to 10 people (in four bedrooms) and has two big entertaining areas. It’s located right in between Easts Beach and Kendalls Beach (under a five-minute walk to each). Both of these beaches are safe swimming spots, and the Little Blowhole is only a hop, skip and jump away.
You’ll also find a fabulous pool amid a lovely, landscaped garden, and it’s pet-friendly too. Little Earth Roasters is a great Kiama cafe hang-out within easy walking distance.
2. Ocean View Apartment
Best for: budget-savvy solo travellers.
Ocean View Apartment is an affordable, self-contained, motel-style room overlooking Bombo Beach. It’s certainly on the smaller side of things but that doesn’t matter much since it’s a clean, tidy and a terrific spot to explore Kiama’s top attractions from.
The studio is a great location for keen photographers due to its proximity to Bombo Quarry, Cathedral Rocks and a myriad of unique photographic highlights and natural attractions in Kiama. Plus, it’s only a short drive or stroll to local eateries and bars too.
The train goes right by here, making it a top spot to do the Kiama Coastal Walk from, particularly if you would prefer to train back to the start, rather than walk the full loop. Suits a solo sojourn or a loved-up couple.
3. Kiama Haven
Best for: families with teens or gatherings with friends.
An awesome Kiama Airbnb featuring ocean views, private gardens, three spacious bedrooms, and covered upper and lower decks (great for alfresco dining). And Kiama Haven is only 100 metres by foot to Easts Beach.
It’s suitable for large families, although toddlers aren’t recommended since the property runs adjacent to the nature reserve and it is not fully fenced.
This tranquil home features a fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ area and even a gazebo that guests can take with them to the beach. The fabulous Kiama Coast Walk (insert article link) is right at your doorstep.
4. La Terrasse Kiama
Best for: families and groups of friends.
La Terrasse is a modern split-level home centrally located to Surf Beach and the Manning Street shopping and cafe precinct.
This three-bedroom property accommodates up to seven guests and has ample parking space for two cars. It can easily house two small families or a group of friends, especially with its full-width balcony with ocean-facing views and a large entertaining patio.
It’s not a party pad since it’s located in a quiet area, and we would recommend it to travellers seeking a relaxed atmosphere with a well-equipped kitchen for entertaining.
5. Santa Barbara Kiama
Best for: group bookings, a girl’s getaway, families and special occasions.
Santa Barbara is an exquisite villa with jaw-dropping views of Bombo Beach, which you can admire from the heated spa on the deck.
It’s right around the corner from the Historic Terrace Houses – an area that has a bunch of quaint cafes and boutique shops. Its three-bedroom, two-bathroom layout hosts up to eight guests and is only a five-minute walk to central Kiama.
Pets are welcome upon request, and the southern end of Bombo Beach is an off-leash dog-friendly zone.
6. Home in Minnamurra
Best for: nature lovers, adventure seekers and small group gatherings.
Located at the mouth of the Minnamurra River, this lovely holiday home in Minnamura is a sublime haven for fishing, relaxing on the many nearby beaches, and intrepid sightseeing missions in the Kiama region. Including the wonderful Minnamurra Falls and rainforest walk (insert article link).
There are two properties on one large block and they are completely private from each other, aside from the shared driveway access. The holiday house (originally built in the 1950s and tastefully renovated a few years back) features two double bedrooms and a loft with two single beds as well as two bathrooms, a laundry and a fully equipped kitchen.
The large, covered deck is accessed through the spacious living area which creates a zen-like environment overlooking the water. Kayaks are available for guest use and yoga equipment is too.
7. The Werri Shack
Best for: people who appreciate the great outdoors and families
The word shack is misleading because The Werri Shack is in actually very stylish. This funky beach house (with a minimum two-night stay) is located in wine country – where the mountains meet the sea.
Pets are welcomed; the yard is fully fenced, and there is an off-leash zone on Werri Beach. Inside, find generous living areas and cool furnishings across this double-storey, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house – and outstanding headland-to-headland views.
Bonus property inclusions are the Sonos sound system, unlimited Wi-Fi, a PlayStation, table tennis and a mandatory surfboard rack.
8. Beach Break Kiama
Best for: families with young children.
Just a 100-metre stroll to Kendalls Beach, Beach Break Kiama is a family-friendly property with delightful views of the Kiama Lighthouse from the verandah. There are no busy roads to cross and the park, beach and oval are all very near – all of which are great options for entertaining the kids.
The bedding configuration is one Queen bed and four single beds – luxury linen is provided too.
Beach Break has pin code access so there are no key hassles. Arrive, drop your gear and set off fishing, swimming, or for a tasty feast at a great Kiama restaurant.
Best for: the sophisticated traveller, private luxury and special occasions.
There are two phenomenal properties set on 150 acres at Dovecote in Gerringong. This ‘award-winning’ homestay won the Housing Industry Association’s Australian House of the Year in 2019.
The Headland home is an architectural masterpiece and a brilliant example of a luxurious South Coast enclave that offers guests premium private accommodation in stylish yet comfortable surroundings. It sleeps up to eight people in four generously sized bedrooms and flaunts unsurpassed ocean and rural landscape views.
The more intimate two-bedroom option is equally impressive. The Range is an open-plan design that’s suited to couples and smaller families seeking an idyllic seaside escape.
Features include an indoor wood-burning fireplace, plunge pool, two sun-drenched decks, and a deep freestanding bath. Both properties are just metres from the Kiama Coast Walk and surfing or swimming at Werri Beach.
