Simpson Cottage is ideal for romantic couple escapes, family getaways, groups of friends or mid-week small business retreats.


Simpson Cottage is as good if not better than the advertised material states. The house, simply furnished with a fabulously equipped kitchen and bathroom is a pure delight to stay in. The outdoor eating area with views to die for. The calm, safe beach just down the hill from the house took me back to my childhood as it reminded me of Nelson Park on Sydney's Harbour.

A perfect place for a three generation celebration such as we had. Gourmet meals, comfortable beds and plenty of space for kids to play. What more could you ask for!


Just had a fabulous night at the cottage, all really stylishly decorated love the beautifully renovated, fantastic towels and yummy linen sheets, really properly well equipped kitchen with a great bbq, love the inside and outside shower options and just a few steps to the water for a swim in crystal clear and calm sea! With the added bonus of being in Bundeena for council chuck out day for some pavement shopping!


Loved staying at Simpsons Cottage. Absolutely perfectly managed and maintained. Made us feel special.


Excellent place to relax and let your cares fade away! Would stay again!


We stayed for six pretty damp days with two energetic boys. I doubt I'd bring rough boys again. Simpson Cottage deserves to be cherished!

The beauty of the place is unsurpassable. The sublime sandstone, ocean views, waving trees, bird life, wildflower walks, sealife, luxurious linens and canoeing were wonderful.

I have also discovered eco soaps and essential oil fragrances. I doubt I'll ever be quite the same again.

Communication was clear and straightforward. Thank you.


Last night i slept in utter luxury. Its difficult explain how or why I loved my Simpson Cottage pure linen sheets so much except to say they are pure heaven.


I wanted to let you know how beautiful we thought the cottage and grounds were. You can see how much love and attention to detail have gone into the property, it was an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to stay. And as amazing as the local scenery is, the boys were just as happy sitting on the veranda trying to talk to the cockatoos! It's definitely going to remain a travel highlight!
You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and I thank you for the experience
Here's hoping you've had a lovely Easter weekend and thanks again Tia.


Simpson Cottage was the perfect venue for our family Christmas celebrations. The house oozes old world charm without compromising on modern amenities. The spacious kitchen and bathroom had all the mod cons, while at the same time, blending in fantastically with the old world feel of the rest of the cottage.
Our stay there was relaxing and really enjoyable. The property was very cozy but still capable of easily accommodating eight people.
We spent most of our time at the outside table, enjoying the magnificent views and taking full advantage of the close proximity to the water for occasional dips.
It's a great place to visit and very hard to leave.
We'll definitely be back.


We absolutely loved our time here. We had two families with four children between us. The beach was great even in May. The house was brilliant and we especially loved the view from the verandah. The cockatoos and parakeets loved to visit us to get an evening snack. Loved the underfloor heating!


We loved this place. The effortless combination of traditional and contemporary means the best of both worlds. It was easy to find yourself drifting back in time trying to imagine the kind of life the first owners must have had, while sipping a nicely chilled Sauvignon in the luxurious bath.

There were nice touches throughout the house: ipod player, top notch bbq, a pagoda for quieter moments, a fantastically located outdoor dining area, coffee maker, open fire! We will be coming back!!


Had a fantastic girls weekend away at Simpson Cottage.

Arrived on the Friday afternoon, after a short drive through the National Park. The Cottage was so lovely and comfortable, with breath taking views of the water.

Saturday morning, we strolled down across the beach to the Bundeena township for breakfast.

I would recommend Simpson Cottage to anyone who wants a weekend getaway from the city.

Highly Recommended
