Wonderful place to relax.

Philippa L, October 2023

We had an excellent stay. The space is absolutely beautiful and the hosts are very easy to communicate with. So close to the beach, cafe also close and very peaceful.

Betty T, February 2023

Lilly Pilly Art House is beautiful and has many interesting features. However, The photos and description of the house at the time of my stay stated- 'Take pleasure in sitting on the verandah and watching the colours of the escarpment change or the daring hang-gliders and their colourful sheets launching from ‘Bald Hill’ headland reserve and coming to rest on the beach. Plus see the escarpment from the bath and the verandah, but all I could see was the studio built in front of the house. '

Family accommodation to attend nearby wedding.

Nathaniel G, October 2022

What a gem. Its very spacious living with a cosy feel. This property is full of quirks and is only a 5 minute walks from Stanwell park beach and cafes. Would recommend!
