- The township of San Remo has a full range of shops and services, including
cafes, restaurants, pubs/TAB, a supermarket, fishing shop, chemist, doctor,
all emergency services plus an ATM.
Directly across from the house is a school playground including a basketball
court, football oval and an undercover play area. All of these can be observed
from the front deck.
Within 200 metres is a safe family beach for swimming with a great outlook across the
channel to Cape Wollamai. At low tide hundreds of rocks come out of the
water which is great for looking for crabs and other sea creatures – ensure you
throw in an old pair of runners to avoid any scratches. High tide is
great for fishing…see the local fishing shop to see what’s biting.

There is also a second toilet located in the backyard - a refurbished classic
outback dunny – and ‘yes’ – it is connected to the sewer!
- The tap water is from the local weir. It is hard water, so you may need a
little extra detergent. It is fine for using in cooking or to boil up for hot
drinks, but is not recommended for straight drinking. Therefore we recommend you

excellent. There are also public phones available in the main street
