This is not just a holiday rental; it’s a true beach shack, embodying the essence of relaxation and comfort. Whether you’re seeking a winter retreat or a summer getaway, Barrawarn offers the perfect haven for you and your furry friend.

Embrace Nature and Serenity

We love this place because it allows us to kick off our shoes, immerse ourselves in nature, and reconnect with the ocean in the most laid-back fashion. The name “Barrawarn” translates to “The Magpie” in indigenous language, and just like these cheerful birds, you’ll find yourself serenaded by their melodic songs in the morning, and sometimes, they might even drop by the garden and deck to say hello.

Discover the Natural Wonders

At Barrawarn, our connection to nature is just a stone’s throw away, with Number 16 Beach a mere kilometere from your doorstep. Embark on a picturesque walking track that winds its way along the breathtaking Point Nepean National Park, leading either to Sorrento or Dimmicks Beach. If you’re feeling adventurous, the Coastal Walk within the National Park offers an opportunity to explore the stunning coastal vistas all the way to Cape Schanck or Sorrento.

Local Delights Await

As you take in the natural beauty, be sure to drop by the 16 Beach General Store along your journey. It’s a delightful pitstop for your coffee fix and offers delicious organic vegan treats. Sundays here are extra special with live music to serenade your senses. When you’re ready to explore dining options, The Cups Estate is just a short drive away, offering exquisite wines and delectable food selections to tantalise your taste buds.

PAWfect Paradise for Pets

Four-Legged Friends Welcome

For our four-legged friends, Barrawarn is nothing short of “PAWfect.” Your furry companions are not just welcome; they are embraced with open arms.

Safe Haven for Pets

The rear enclosed garden with tall fences ensures their safety while they explore and sniff out all the fascinating scents from the surrounding trees and bushes. Keep an eye out; you might even spot possums frolicking in the trees!

Leash-Free Beaches and Parks

While the nearby beach is part of a National Park and leash regulations apply, fear not, for Barrawarn is conveniently located near numerous leash-free beaches and parks. Your canine companions will have a blast running along the sandy shores and making new friends.

We loved this place so much. we only stayed for 2 nights, wish it could've been more. We loved it because it was so comfortable for us, family of 5 and our small dog who we brought with us. The kids loved the backyard, the swing and the archery was a hit, so much room to run around in and explore. The owners have really put a lot of thought into making this house special. Books and pencils for the kids, stocked up coffee station for arrival. We managed to spend the whole of the following day at the enchanted adventure park in Arthurs seat. Great place for the kids as so many activities. Tube slides was the favourite of course. We had dinner at the Red Gum BBQ which was amazing. We managed to do lot on such a short trip but its definitely a trip we will remember fondly. Hopefully we can come back in summer! Thank you so much for making our stay comfortable and for the gifts, we really appreciated it. Until next time.

Such a beautiful home to stay in. We absolutely loved the heart of the home with it's gorgeous open wood fire, comfy couches, beautiful warm timber walls and big family table. Lovely raincloud shower and amazing kitchen facilities. We loved the shaded backyard with teatrees and herbs. Great family hammock and the archery was enjoyed by all. Awesomely located so close to no. 16 beach I'd absolutely come here again when kids are older. The backyard is super great for dogs although the many high retaining walls with bricks below are really not safe for young children. The tall concrete staircase to the lower level would need a baby gate to make this safe for little ones.

Cosy, well-maintained home. The space has good quality kitchen amenities & beautiful secure backyard for a pup with plenty of room for a family or couples and small animals to spend time together or use as a base for exploring.

Fantastic communication! We were really happy with this property, considering it was a last minute booking. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, there was plenty of room for 6 adults. There was a huge yard and lots of room indoors. It was located in a very quiet area, away from the Christmas holiday madness.
