YellowtailStay - Stanwell Tops is where 'The Bush Meets the Coast'.
The Top room is a smaller motel style room with a private entrance and bathroom and next to a parking space. This room is suitable for short term stays.
We provide 3 separate accommodation facilities each with there own private access and bathrooms. Feel free to contact us to discuss which accommodation facility best suits your requirements or see the other listings of YellowtailStay. You may want to chat with us when you arrive or you can pick up the key from the deposit and never have to interact with us at all, we hope not though.
YellowtailStay - Stanwell Tops is set in a small acreage of stunning rolling lawns with a sandstone surrounded dam and encompassed by bush. We are a 5 minute drive to any shops.
We are a 1 minute walk to world famous Bald Hill Lookout, over the road from The Royal National Park and a 5 minute drive to Stanwell Park Beach, (although, this is a very impractical walk as are the nearest shops). Bald Hill is a haven for hang gliders and paragliders and the view of the Northern Illawarra, the escarpment and The Sea Cliff Bridge is rated by many, as one of the best in the world. The start of the Royal National Park Coast Walk is 1 km away just past the iconic Otford Pantry but there are numerous other bush walks near by, with a couple running next to the property.
The property is close to numerous wedding venues including those at Audley, Lillyvale and Stanwell Tops. All are short drives but impractical walks.
Guests have access to a fully equipped laundry with a clothes dryer and ironing board.
Coffee shops, restaurants and supermarkets are a short but spectacular drive to the south at Wombarra and Austinmere or a 5 minute drive north to Helensburgh. The Symbio Zoo is 5 minutes away with a golf driving range and putt putt across the road. The Boomerang Golf Course is a further 5 minutes drive. Horse riding at Otford Valley Farm is 5 minutes drive with the main trail running along our boundary.
Cycling and motor bike riding are popular pursuits in the area and there are many rainforest walks, 10-20 minutes to the north and spectacular escarpment walks to the south.
Rock fishing venues are all around, the orchard outlets of Darks Forrest are 10 minutes drive and the beaches of the Royal National Park and Audley are a half hour along Lady Wakehurst Drive. The Govinda Valley Retreat with its yoga and meditation centre and vegetarian cooking classes is just along the Hacking River and The Hindu, Sri Venkateswara Temple, a 3 minute drive.
Trains from Central or Sutherland can take you to Otford Station which is about a 1.5km gentle downhill walk from YellowtailStay. If the walk from the station is too much we are happy to arrange a pickup if we are available.
Bald Hill and the beautiful Otford Valley really are the centre of the universe, but a long way from the stress of every day living.
