Chappies is a delightful and relaxing, pet-friendly holiday house. It’s the perfect choice for families and couples seeking a peaceful coastal holiday experience. Nestled in the leafy, tranquil village of Callala Bay, Chappies ticks all the boxes. With an attractive 2 ½ hour drive from Sydney through the scenic Shoalhaven, Callala Bay sits on the northern shores of Jervis Bay. There you will find Chappies - a mere 350 metres from the Bay itself. Set back from the road in a spacious, private aspect with large gardens and beautiful trees, you can immediately unwind and start your holiday. An open plan and welcoming holiday house, at Chappies you can enjoy the cosy log fire in winter and garden dining paradise in summer.
Relax at Callala Bay and enjoy the pristine sand with safe swimming areas and the idyllic Wowly Creek - a popular spot for families to picnic, take out the dinghy, or walk to Red Rock whilst beachcombing at sunrise. Enjoy an assortment of activities: fishing, paddle boarding, snorkelling, dolphin and bird watching, playing with your dogs on the pet-friendly beach, marine walks and bike rides. Unwind at the bay and be entertained by the nautical seascape with its sailing boats, distant naval ships, wedge-tail eagles, and the locals spear fishing in the crystal clear waters. Follow the pathway from the boat ramp around and discover the breathtaking Callala Bay headland leading to Callala Beach. At sundown the kangaroos and possums come out, setting the scene for your holiday with nature extravaganza.
Recently refurbished throughout, Chappies is an attractive, uncluttered place to relax in a private setting. The rear verandah is covered and has a new BBQ and outdoor dining area – a top spot for kicking back and relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book. There is plenty of garden space for the kids to run around in a secure fenced area and play games. There are two outdoor showers to wash off the sand once you return home from the bay. Most importantly, Chappies is also pet-friendly.
The open plan lounge/dining room has a dining table seating 6, with 2 lounges and wall mounted TV. Free WiFi is provided as well as Netflix. The fully equipped kitchen contains a dishwasher, drip filter coffee machine, electric stove and oven, fridge, kettle, toaster and more.
For winter getaways the wood fireplace is perfect, keeping the house snug and warm. We supply free firewood from May till September. In summer the ceiling fans in both of the Queen bedrooms and the living area will provide you with that extra comfort on warmer days.

Ideal for families, couples and those seeking pet-friendly accommodation, Chappies is the perfect spot and close to amenities. There are BBQs and a children’s play area in close proximity to the boat ramp (2 mins walks from Chappies), with plenty of flat access for strollers, prams and bikes. Call into the local IGA for supplies, or enjoy an evening meal at the local Sixth Sense Café or a convenient takeaway from the Pizza shop. Callala Bay shops include a post office, bakery and boutique gift shop, as well as a day spa for those special pamper treats. For a night out, you can hop across to the Callala RSL Country Club, a mere 5-minute drive, or utilise the club’s free courtesy bus. Venturing just 10-minutes further afield will take you to the small surfing town of Culburra, with its cafes, Woolworths and nearby Crookhaven Heads boat ramp - another popular spot for fishing and taking out the boat. Greenwell Point and Pyree are also well worth a visit. A 20-minute drive south past fields of kangaroos will take you to the coastal town of Huskisson. Here you can enjoy a romantic evening in one of the local restaurants and live entertainment at the Huskisson Hotel. You can also catch the ferry to Husky from Myola, where the beautiful Currambene Creek flows into Jervis Bay.
Nowra is only a 20-minute drive away, where you can stop off at Nowra Fresh and the Farmers Market to collect supplies. At South Nowra you can also take the kids to Flip Out and younger children and toddlers to Matty’s Playtime for some fun. Picturesque Berry is located slightly further afield and a must-see, with its boutique shops and monthly markets. There are plenty of other pristine beaches to explore around Currarong (and surfing spots), or further down the coast in Jervis Bay. Beecroft Peninsula and the lighthouse at Point Perpendicular are also worth exploring.
