Holiday memories since 1954
It all started when…
Our grandparents acquired the land in the early 1950's with a dream to build a little holiday house to escape to during the summer. The sleepout was completed around 1954 and the family used it for holidays until the main house was built. Over the years the interior was completed, the house extended and the kitchen and bathroom updated. Five generations have made life-long memories at Redhead. We love and treasure our little cottage by the sea and its our pleasure to now share it with you.

Redhead has been carefully renovated to retain a relaxed 1950’s holiday cottage feel. Across the road from natural bushland and within a few minutes walk to Washerwomans Beach. The house is very spacious with a large open living area and 3 bedrooms. Main bedroom is a roomy parents retreat with own balcony. Second bedroom has 2 single beds and the other bedroom is a separate sleep-out also with 2 single beds.
The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery. There is a total of 3 showers and 2 toilets with a second shower and toilet in laundry and a warm outdoor shower.
Enjoy swimming, boating, sailing in summer and bush walking, beach combing and sitting around the open fire in winter. Bendalong is abundant in wildlife and kangaroos are regular visitors to our backyard. We often see dolphins in the bay and friendly rays can be hand-fed down at the boat harbour. The beaches are pristine with lovely bush settings. The house is within an easy walking distance to Washerwoman's Beach and Inyadda Beach with its stunning Green Island views. There is plenty of room to park a boat and trailer and the boat ramp is close by.
From Bendalong you can take a short drive to Lake Conjola or venture further to historic Milton 20 mins and the fishing town of Ulladulla. Bendalong is an easy 2-3 hour drive south of Sydney and 2-3 hour drive north-east from Canberra.
