“What a fantastic stay we had at Southerly Change, we would highly recommend it. Dealing with Cathie for the booking, check-in and check-out was so easy. The location is amazing, just a couple of minutes walk to the beach, and a great base for visiting the nearby towns of Gerringong and Berry. To top it all the Southerly Change house is fantastic. As soon as we walked it we felt at home, so clean, tidy and spacious (and one of the most comfortable beds we’ve slept in). The house is equipped better than any we’ve stayed before (even with body boards and beach toys). And it’s wonderful place to get back to at the end of the day, with two TV’s setup with Netflix”.

“We had a fantastic three nights at Southerly Change – seven ladies who have been enjoying our weekends away for over 30 years. Lots of space, great beds and wonderful amenities – one of our favourite stays in a beautiful part of Australia. Thanks Cathie – we hope to be back again!!”

Southerly Change is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach. The house is spacious, well laid out with very comfortable beds. The owners have all the finer details covered to make it feel like a home away from home. We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely be back in the near future. Such a quick and easy booking process. Cathie was a pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend this house enough.

“We had a great weekend at Cathie’s place for a ladies weekend. The house is perfect for a weekend away with family or friends. Clean and spacious with a beautiful outdoor area and tastefully decorated! Awesome location within walking distance to beach and café. Will definitely be back.”

“We loved Southerly Change! I honestly cannot think of anything that could be included to make the stay better. Everything we needed, we found, the beds were so cosy and comfy I would have happily taken mine home with me and the house was so clean and beautifully presented. We just wished we didn’t have to come back to reality so soon. We are definitely plotting a return for a longer stay.”

“Wow – what an awesome house for a long weekend getaway with friends! Stayed the June long weekend with friends and our kids. The place was so well equipped for kids – board games, totem tennis, movies, Netflix and so much more. There is a great little park a few minutes walk away with a coffee shop close by. A short walk to the beach or the river mouth for a quick fish. Beautifully presented and clean. We will definitely be back.”

“A great place to stay, easy walk to a playground, coffee shop, & beach both surf & river. Easy drive to Gerringong, Kiama, Nowra & Berry. The house was clean, well presented & open with big windows & a large backyard – all amenities were there & lots of blankets & pillows – the mattresses were beautiful !!! Am planning to return!!”

“Although it rained most of our stay, we had an amazing time! The layout of the house was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 3 kids. The DVD and Book collection kept the kids entertained whilst the adults talked the night away. Little touches like having labels on everything from light switches to the keyring ensured we knew how everything worked. Cathie was the most warm and welcoming host in the lead up to the stay, giving us plenty of tips and hints along the way. I’m looking forward to staying here again :)”

“Lovely house, beautifully appointed in a fantastic location. We had a fabulous weekend in at Southerly Change. It has 2 large comfortable sitting areas – one with views to the ocean. There are 3 bedrooms – beautiful linen and 2 recently renovated bathrooms. The kitchen is lovely, large, clean and well appointed. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Southerly Change for a Gerroa escape.”

“Wow, what a fantastic place; it’s beautifully furnished and the beds are so comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and it’s design is clever where the kitchen in the middle splits the house into adults and children’s spaces which makes for a really relaxing stay. The owner couldn’t be more helpful making you feel welcome, our two families of 4 adults and 4 kids loved exploring the local area, We will definitely be back, thankyou.”

“We stayed at Southerly Change with our 3 children (age 4, 2 and 8 months) and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is clean and neat and had everything we needed. The owner has gone to every length to ensure that our stay was great, everything we wanted was there – we brought our own food and nothing else, and it was perfect. The location was also great, as the nearby beach has a very accessible section for small children. It was quiet, and the neighbours were also very nice. We will definitely be coming back in the future.”

“We have had a ball – so close to the park, the river & the beach! Beautiful sunsets, fun shell collecting & even saw dolphins! Wonderful home.”

“So lovely, clean, spacious + comfortable! Amazing attention to detail, with everything we could possibly need! Both kids + parents loved it, and we’re all sad to leave. Can’t wait to return :)”

“What a beautiful place! This B&B was modern, spacious, spotless and so very comfortable!! There were 7 of us and we all loved everything about the house ( great to have 2 bathrooms!) The beds and bed linen were so lovely to sleep in. There was a great choice of DVD’s … Wish we’d had a whole week to enjoy them. It was an easy walk to a cafe and the beach and a short drive to any number of scenic places. The owners of this property have done everything possible to make this a gorgeous place to escape to. We’ll be booking it again! ”

“A great house for all ages in a wonderful location. 4 generations of my family were all accommodated with comfortable beds, lovely linens and plenty of living space. The beach, park, corner store and cafe are all reached with an easy stroll. The owners are very easy to communicate with and we appreciated all the welcoming touches. Highly recommended.”

“Perfect house & location for a relaxing committee retreat. Extremely helpful owner too, pleasure to deal with. We’ll be back.”

“This house is so central its a walk to the beach, the cafe, the general store and the Fisherman’s Club and the Big 4 caravan park. We loved how spacious this house was, with comfortable bedding & lounge areas and easy to find and great off street parking. Many household inclusions of things you might want for and Its only 5 mins to Gerringong for groceries and takeaway outlets. Would definitely recommend this house to families.”

“Spacious house ideal for two families to stay together or a large family. Comfortable beds and lounges, felt like a home away from home with lots of thoughtful little extras such as books, DVD’s, Tea and Coffee to name a few. We stayed during July but the house was warm and cosy and the blankets provided kept us snug. Great location we walked to beach and there is a café in the street that has coffee, breakfast and lunch. We had dinner at the top of the hill at the Fisherman’s Club can walk to it if you’re keen for a little hike otherwise easy minute drive. It is also not far to walk to little general store for essentials or to buy the paper. We only hope that we can stay again soon. Loved this house, loads of room, perfect for families & close to beach and Fisherman’s Club. We’d love to visit again.”
