The lovely Kate from South Coast Experiences created a magical mid-week escape for Hupa and I. Our romantic getaway involved beach horse riding followed by an amazing stay at the dreamy Soul Of Gerringong.
Soul Of Gerringong is located on Australia’s NSW south-coast, approximately 2 hours drive south of Sydney. The property is set adjacent to Gerringong’s township and is walking distance to Gerringong’s hub of cafes, restaurants, surf shop and of course beaches!
Soul Of Gerringong is a unique, laidback and luxurious coastal property, set in the heart of Gerringong. The property was once an original farmhouse and has been perfectly restored into a gorgeous modern day luxury beach-house. Its owners, a builder and interior designer from The Shire in Sydney, say Soul Of Gerringong was heavily influenced by their love for Byron Bay properties. Their aim was to bring a little touch of Byron to the south coast – and how perfectly they have managed to do so!
Soul of Gerringong features three totally dreamy and separate accommodation spaces, complete with coastal lux styling throughout. The property is ideal for families, friends, or larger groups of people travelling together and seeking a little beachside lux! Soul Of Gerringong also makes for the most romantic getaway for couples too!
‘The Farmhouse’ is the main property here at Soul of Gerringong and is complete with four separate bedrooms. The master bedroom and ensuite feature a king bed, restored fireplace and a polished concrete free-standing bath! The Farmhouse contains three other bedrooms, all with attached ensuites and flatscreen tv’s. Think white panelled walls, coastal styled artworks and beachy décor in each setting. The Farmhouse is designed to offer a sense of open planned living and combines so well it’s large fully equip kitchen (+ walk in pantry!) and spacious living room. The real winner of this space is without doubt the property’s originally resorted stone fireplace. The Farmhouse boasts both indoor and outdoor dining areas, plus a large outdoor barbeque, perfect for entertaining on those summer nights!
‘The Cabana’ accommodates up to four people comfortably. It features two separate queen bedrooms with walk in wardrobes and ensuites, and has the added luxury of both indoor and outdoor living areas, overlooking the property’s pool. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a poolside drink!
‘The Barn’ is a one-bedroom retreat that features a four-poster queen bed, gorgeous ensuite bathroom and attached living room. This is where Hupa and I stayed for our romantic mid week getaway. The living room is complete with it’s own kitchenette, sofa lounge, rattan lounge and flatscreen tv! I am so in love with ‘The Barn’s’ bold artworks and wall pieces, it’s pot plant greenery the hardwood floors and of course it’s funky funky floor and wall tiles! Do we ever have to leave?!
A night here at Soul Of Gerringong and I feel a lot like I am right back in Bali! We enjoy a pizza dinner with wine poolside, sitting under the stars. After an amazing night’s sleep in possibly one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever had the pleasure of sleeping in, I am more than ready for a day lazing around the property’s pool! We wake to blue cloudless skies, palm trees over head and balmy temperatures that reach the high twenties before 9am – it’s a coconut kind of morning. I set myself up next to this amazing topaz coloured pool that manages to change shades of blue in every spec of light.
Each of the three mini properties are styled absolutely gorgeously throughout, and offer a true element of beachside luxury. All rooms feature a mini fridge, tea and coffee facilities, smart tvs, air-conditioning, linen and bath towels. Take a walk outdoors and you will discover Soul Of Gerringong’s landscaped gardens, oversize decks and, my favourite item; a heated swimming pool! Talk about tropical-feels!
