Reviewed 13 April 2013

We spent a wonderful Easter at this upmarket B&B. The apartments were very roomy, modern and fitted out with all that you would need. Greg & Jan were fantastic hosts and made us feel very welcome. The sunsets were amazing, the beaches were beautiful and pristine and there was an abundance of wildlife with kangaroos visiting most mornings and evenings and a black cockatoo chewing pine cones in the tree in the back yard. I haven't mentioned the views yet which were absolutely lovely overlooking the inlet. Having never been to Jervis Bay previously I fell in love with the area and will definitely be back.

Jan and Greg are wonderful welcoming hosts.
They provided a wealth of information on the local area, pointing us in the right direction for great walks, pub lunches, restaurants, golf and dolphin watching.
The accommodation is self contained, spacious with everything we needed.
Definitely a place we wish to return to.

We just spent 4 great days at this upmarket B&B in the Jarvis Bay area. Jan and Greg are fantastic hosts and the apartments were lovely with everything you would need. The sunsets were a highlight as was the local wildlife. It was a really excellent way to spend Easter with close friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are great with lovely views

Arrived to a warm welcome by Jan who was kind enough to tell us more about the area. I haven't been to the Jervis Bay area in about a decade and it was refreshing to know that the beaches are still as pristine and secluded as ever.

The breakfast selection was wide. Be mindful that the bacon slices on the South Coast are larger than that in Sydney. Ask for three slices, not six. It was more than enough for two people. Fruit was freshly cut everyday and the bread was homemade.

We stayed in the Greenfields apartment and it was very well kept. King sized bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. I personally think that there should be an exhaust fan above the stove area. Due to poor weather, we were unable to make use of the BBQ, so a lot of our cooking was done indoors. Although I love the smell of bacon, I had to open up all the windows and doors to move the smoke and smell out of the apartment for fear that we would set off the smoke alarm. A portable clothes airer would have been nice but we made do by hanging our damp towels and clothes on chairs.

We had neighbours on either side of our apartment. We bumped into them on occasion and they were very nice. We couldn't hear any conversations through the doors, just the occasional action movie. The wet weather kept us indoors but still head to the beaches... you're going to get wet anyway.

I cannot stress enough how kind and hospitable Greg and Jan are. They work hard to maintain the place and they make you feel so at home. The area is so quiet and there is a good sense of community among the locals. Speaking of local, during your stay, you must give the local pizzeria a try. It's just down the road from the B&B. Apologies, I forgot the name but there's a menu in the apartment (it's white with blue text). We tried a large House Special with garlic bread. It was delicious. The pizza had a thin, crispy base with just the right amount of topping. If you're feeling super lazy, you can have it delivered but it's only about a 10-15min stroll or 2min drive from the apartment.

We returned home yesterday after our three night stay with heavy hearts. We really enjoyed the chilled, laid-back lifestyle of the South Coast and are already missing Jan's hospitality and Greg's sport stories. I have no hesitation recommending By the Beach B&B to my family and friends. We will definitely be back.

Complete apartments. Good distance from local beaches. Friendly and accommodating owners. Lovely breakfast. Memorable location, where my long term partner proposed to me. Will come back in the future. Possibly to celebrate another anniversary.

We stayed here for 5 nights and with a 1 year old it was perfect, clean, quiet, and kangaroos eating out of our hand the moment we arrived. The beach is calm and quiet and there are nice walks from the door step. Pelicans are easily spotted. the hosts are wonderful and breakfast is enough for lunch too!

Bed is very soft though.

Enjoy!

We stayed here for 3 days after our wedding. And loved it straight away. Great location for us to take our boat out, go for walks, borrow their kayak and also plenty of time to relax.
The fresh breakfast was delicious.
Our hosts were more than happy to help us with anything we needed.
We will deffinelty be back.
Thank you Greg and Jan.
