By The Beach B & B Self-Contained Apartments
Reviewed 7 November 2015

Have just had 2 of the most relaxing nights at By the Beach. Modern, well appointed rooms with everything you would need for a short or longer stay.
Fully equipped kitchen with full sized fridge and dishwasher. Very comfy bed with 6 pillows and extra blankets if needed. Bathroom has handwash, bodywash, shampoo & conditioner and the shower has plenty of pressure (bliss). There is also a washing machine in your room & a BBQ.
Breakfast was great we ordered bacon & eggs for 2 on the first morning and had so much food we only needed a couple of things - delicious homemade bread on the second morning.
Lovely touches like teapot with loose leaf tea and ground coffee with plunger were appreciated.
There is a stand up paddle board & 2 person kayak for guests to use.
Greg and Jan are great hosts friendly and happy to share their local knowledge, there was also plenty of info on the local area in the rooms as well as a list of the very extensive DVD collection for guests to borrow.
The view from the rooms are out over St George's Basin and kangaroos visit in the morning and early evening.
Highly recommend By the Beach if you are looking for a quiet, place to stay close to all the natural attractions the south coast has to offer. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nelson Beach (apartment 1) but I think all rooms are similar

I stayed here with my wife and we both commented that it must be one of the best BnBs in Australia. Jan and Greg are lovely and so helpful with local advice and recommendations. The breakfast options are amazing, huge choice. Only a short drive to Hyams beach and Huskisson. We will definitely be back.

Thanks Lee. So glad that you both enjoyed your stay. We were impressed that you made the most of the day with your early morning walks before breakfast. The baby joey hopped out of the pouch for the first time yesterday but decided that mums pouch was much more secure. We will catch up on your next visit

Stayed 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the amenities, location and hospitality. The apartments are very functional and well appointed with great views over St Georges Basin. The breakfast baskets were a highlight, especially the freshly baked bread. Greg and Jan were great hosts - very helpful and accommodating. It is a short drive to Vincentia, Huskisson and the other beaches but not an issue for us given the peace and quiet of Sanctuary Point.

We have stayed at By the Beach twice and looking forward to returning again in December this year. It's a lovely peaceful location, with beautiful views and kangaroos often outside. A lovely getaway.

The rooms are modern and nicely designed with everything you could want or think of! Little kitchens, washing machine, your own BBQ on the deck. Perfect. Greg and Jan are amazing hosts, with everything you need for your own breakfast each morning, and lots of tips for things to see and do around the area. You need a car, but there are some beautiful places and beaches to explore nearby.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here and can't wait to visit again in December!

The advertising and selectively composed photos posted are misleading. The beach is a narrow strip of public land edged by suburban backyards fronting St. Georges Basin. When we visited it was unswimable and covered by decaying seaweed. Wildlife is attracted to the garden by artificial feeding . The location is suburban, inconvenient and a considerable distance by car from the natural attractions of Jervis Bay. Breakfast was good with generous sized serves but nothing out of the ordinary. The room was large modern and comfortable however for a nightly price of $220 we expected our room would be serviced.

Thank you for your comments. All the beaches along the NSW coast have been battered by high seas and our Palm Beach was affected. We can't control Mother Nature. Our breakfast baskets comprise fruit juice, diced fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, tomato, choice of 3 cereals, milk, homemade bread, butter, a choice of 5 condiments plus newspaper - we do also cater for any special requests. Our guest surveys show that this is more than adequate.

Guests who stay longer than 2 nights are offered the choice of having fresh towels and linen but the vast majority prefer the privacy and security of their apartment.

Jervis Bay beaches are within a 10 minute drive from us.

The owners were away when we visited & so we had the pleasure of meeting a couple of friends who were managing the place.
Considering it wasn't their business, they did a great job & made us feel very welcome.
The property is in a fantastic spot & the accommodation very stylish & comfortable.
