About Gerald

I live in Sydney with my wife and son. We have been coming to Callala Beach since 1993 and now are almost locals. We try and get down at least once a month and so keep a close watch on the property and its maintenance.

Gerald purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Gerald chose South Coast

We stumbled on to Callala Beach after reading a magazine article. It took only the first visit for us to fall in love with the place. However, it took another year before we found Dolphincove - we named it after the dolphins that swim past the cottage most days. We love it for its quietness - truly a place to get off the grid. Ten people on this 5km beach is a crowd. Even in stormy weather, it is highly therapeutic to don a jacket and to go for a long stroll. When it is sunny, the water is crystal clear. Avoid getting frightened by your own shadow on the seabed like I did, that first weekend.

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy going to sleep and waking up to the sound of waves. The night air is so clear that you get an amazing view of the Milky Way. It's smaller size means that it is highly affordable for couples or small families and still be on the beach. Most other properties in the area are much larger. Although Callala Beach itself is very quiet, you are within easy driving distance to many amenities in the area. For overseas rentals, we are looking at stocking the fridge with enough food to get you settled in. Please ask for information when booking. All rentals receive a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival.

Perfect for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday at Dolphincove and the complimentary wine on arrival was much appreciated. The cottage was a good size inside for the three of us but most of our time was spent outside on the verandah drinking in the stunning view. Not only was this magnificent by day, but at night, the Milky Way was breathtaking! The proximity of the beach from the house took all the stress out of packing up the car and heading off to the beach for the day, and allowed us to glimpse the pod of Dolphins that passed each morning and evening. The beach was beautiful and quiet compared to Sydney and we really enjoyed being able to swim in the clear water and watch the hermit crabs scuttle around underneath us in the sand. Being separated from busy Huskisson by Currambene Creek, we found Callala very relaxing and peaceful. All our essentials could be found at nearby Callala Bay shops and the the locals were very friendly and helpful when it came to fishing tips. The house had all we needed but did get very hot despite the fans in each room. Perhaps ceiling fans would help? Overall a great stay and we would certainly love to come again!

Cosy cottage right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This is the perfect cottage if you're looking for a location right on the beach and a cosy beachy feeling. No extravagances, but just what we wanted for four people. The dolphins swam by several times a day. Away from the masses but a close drive to Husskison and Hyams Beach.

Gerald is so friendly, the most perfect host and even helped arrange shipping a left behind jacket to Sweden.

Can really recommend staying at Dolphin Cove!

Six steps to the beach access. Calming clear waters that soothe you to sleep. Dolphincove cottage has wonderful charm and beach style. We are just planning when we can go back again.

Quiet place with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cottage 5 nights. The place is really charming with beautiful view on the beach. Every morning we have seen dolphins right from the house. The cottage was clean and the equipment is on really high level. BBQ in the back is really handy and could be taken to the front. I have dealed with the owner few times. He was helpful and always responded quickly. I could only recommend the stay there to everybody.
