About Lorraine Ratcliffe 0422 815539
I'm English and came to Australia 20 years ago and we discovered Myola on a Sunday drive. We found that "Husky" was too busy for us and found that Myola is in a lovely setting and usually very peaceful. We bought Saltwater 18 months later in 2008, it was a holiday home then and we decided to keep it that way. We have tried to keep everything like a "home from home" so that our guests can enjoy themselves. If anything we have more than enough compared to other places I have stayed in, even down to a garlic press!

Why Lorraine Ratcliffe 0422 815539 chose Myola
Saltwater is on a 800 m2 fenced block, the garden is tropical with 4 Giant Bird of Paradise plants and well established plants. We also have a couple of resident Blue tongue's and its usual to see the big kangaroos running down the street! It's a beautiful area, safe swimming for the kids and plenty of space for Kayaking or Stand-up board activity. The birdlife is amazing and they come for a daily feed around 4pm. The house is set away from the street so we are lucky to have a quiet setting and a bush view from the lounge/dining. Flat block, good for kids and your furry family.
What makes this House unique
Saltwater was a holiday rental when we purchased it and we have continued to share our place with families each year. We try to make it a home for you with all that you need and some little extra touches that make you feel welcomed. Myola is a very unique area, however, we are being discovered and I am sure it will get busier. Locals are saying we will be the next "Hyams" and there are plans to increase the tourism to this area. We have long sandy beaches, plenty of walking tracks and the water's edge a short distance away. You can hear the surf from the property and we have a fire pit that can be used from March to October without a fire permit (bush zone). Very much a kid friendly area and a great place to take the dog on holiday.

charming old-style beach house with a very considerate hostess, a real pleasure!
Very Special House
What a wonderful holiday house in a wonderful area - the beach down the end of the street is perhaps one of the best you will ever come across. I have never known an owner to put such an effort into everything - right down to the Chrissy Decorations. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the wildlife and the peace and quiet. Our dog was made to feel very welcome. We will certainly be returning - next time staying longer - 4 days in not enough. Thank you Lorraine
Thank you Elizabeth for you kind words. It was our pleasure to have you stay at Saltwater and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. Myola is still a unique little place although a bit busier these days at holiday times. Come back and stay when the crowds have gone, I'm sure you will enjoy it even more!
Many thanks, Lorraine
excellent property and thoughtful owners
Perfect location in secluded Myola yet still only a short walk to the magnificent Callala beach. Particularly love the thoughtful touches and extras like full cold water on kitchen bench, Christmas decorations, bikes and snorkelling gear. Not to mention return of jewellery left behind! Thank you!
You are very welcome Jenny and thanks for visiting us again and bringing beautiful Charlie to enjoy himself with the family. We hope to see you again in 2018,
Great property and excellent owners
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Saltwater house. Lorraine thought of everything to make sure we felt like we were at home and had all we need for a great holiday. The kids loved the retreat , loved the location and loved the bikes - had memorable rides along the beach using the bikes provided.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner did fantastic job of keeping the property clean and was available to help out even during Easter holiday period!
Best holiday ever!
We stay in myola loads of holidays, but this first time renting a home there. This home is immaculate. Lorriane is very helpful, friendly and accomdating. Our family and friends plus kids loved everything about it!.. the photos currently shown doesnt show justice, its more beauitiful in person. Had everything you could ever need and more plus little extras. We will return and its worth it.
Myola is a small village with one street and one way in and out! Its where the bush meets the Creek and Jervis Bay. The Creek meanders around the village and recreationally it is used for Fishing, Paddleboards, Kayaking and general gateway to the Bay. Plenty of birdlife and marine life. Its a small sanctuary that is unique giving access to Huskisson via Ferry or other beaches in and around the Bay. We are next to Callala Beach and share the long stretch of sand with them, great Dog beach, shallow and safe. The Creek offers a lovely swim area for the kids and nearby fishing off the breakwater rocks. Very popular with families. We provide bikes for you to use during your stay and to ride on the beach at low tide. Outside of Summer we have a fire pit that you are welcome to use (March to October).
