About Elanora

Elanora Gerroa, 2 hours south of Sydney is situated on Gerroa headland, unique in that you can watch both the sun rise and the sun set over the ocean. Panoramic, breathtaking, uninterrupted ocean views surround the house. The rear of the house overlooks Shelley Beach and farmland. Whales, dolphins, sea and birdlife abound. When present, the cows on the farm are a special treat. The front view takes in Seven Mile Beach, Black Head, the Crooked River and Berry Escarpment. The moon, stars and storms at sea, provide spectacular light shows over the ocean. The perfect place for relaxation.

We regularly receive texts from guests on arrival, with the common theme of being “blown away” by the views and location as well as the Guests Welcome pack. Most guests leave us a note on departure, saying…”amazing, stunning, refreshed, inspired, thanks so much, can’t wait till we come back….”

Our family of eight 2 adults 3 sons & 3 grandchildren loved every minute at Elanora The house was perfect for our annual XMAS family holiday. So relaxing & so easy to stay in with amazing views all round the house! Just a short walk or tiny drive to Shelly Beach which is lovely Waking up to watch stunning sunrises from our bed & then in the evening same deal with beautiful sunsets So beautiful. We had two almighty hail thunder & folk lightning storms which we watched in amazement from the lounge room I can’t recommend this lovely home enough to anyone who is in need of a beautiful relaxing holiday The Green Family would love to revisit one day that’s for sure.

Kathy & the Green Family ,


We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away in your amazing house. Loved the extra touches such as the fruit cake and card telling us of the whales to look out for, which we saw. House was very comfortable and views amazing.

Will definitely return!



We enjoyed our relaxing weekend away. So peaceful, watching the sunrise and the sunset while sitting in front of the cosy fireplace. Amazing views from the front and back of the house of the ocean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Elanora. The views from both sides of the home were absolutely amazing – and perfect for a winter weekend with the north easterly deck providing views of the ocean, whales, dolphins and the farm with the cows and the warmth of the sunny sheltered side. The other view down Seven Mile Beach and hinterland is stunning. We felt very welcome with champagne, cheeses and cake greeting us and plenty of space for six adults to relax. The home has everything needed for a luxury holiday, two nights was not long enough – we will definitely be back!!



You’ll be sure to love it as much as we did. The view was nothing short of spectacular and the attention to detail, hospitality and service was a real added treat for a well deserved family break. The kids loved the strawberry patch and we loved having space!

Tara G,


We stayed in Elanora for a family birthday celebration a few weekends ago and had a wonderful time. The property owners went out of their way to make our stay special with lots of touches like a cheese platter and bottle of champagne on arrival. There was also a delicious fruit cake and a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice left for our enjoyment. But the best detail of all is how thoughtful kind the owners are. I left a rather large amount of clothing in one of the bedrooms dresser draws and after only realising one week later, the owners posted these items back to me at no charge!

Thank you again. I really appreciate it and we hope to be back to stay in your beautiful home with stunning views very soon!
