“A beautiful place. The pool and views are amazing. Total privacy.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Airbnb


“I have been waiting for the perfect time to visit Ocean Farm and this was the year! As soon as I drove in the driveway my breath was taken away. The views are spectacular. 

The house is stunning you immediately feel at home. The size of the living/kitchen area was perfect there was space to lay and enjoy the view, rest your eyes or take a book in. Bedrooms were a perfect size and the The Loft was a hit with the teenagers. The pool is a great feature we would do a 10k walk come back and jump straight in, it was bliss! 

Gerringong is one of my favorite spots to visit regularly and we my family and friends felt truly blessed to be able to visit a beautiful farm like Ocean Farm. 

Thank you Drew for letting us into your home and experiencing pure relaxation.”

“Everything at ocean farm was incredible, cannot find a single fault about this listing. The photos do not do the view and location justice! Did not want to leave and wished we booked a longer stay. Drew was also really helpful and quick at answering any questions. Hope to stay here again one day. Thanks drew!”

“I wanted a break from work with an Ocean view with 3 of my besties- this place is amazing! You could do nothing other than sit on the deck and watch the world go by. We did, we also lit the fire, cooked up a great meal, got energetic at some point and did the walk from the property to Kiama, before some more sitting. Thanks again Drew and Craig.”

“We loved our stay at Ocean Farm, the property is really well laid out and works brilliantly for 4 couples. The views are varied and magnificent and there is the right mix of luxury in a homely welcoming atmosphere. Privacy, solitude and quietness are a particular delight here resulting in a most relaxing stay.”

“I took my adult family, their partners and one infant here for a family reunion of sorts .... and it was perfect! There is enough space for everyone to be together comfortably but also space enough for privacy and separation if required. The location, the house and its facilities, and the stunning views made it so memorable.

The location is perfect. It was close enough for the more energetic of our group to jog to Gerringong where we could meet them for a morning coffee. 5 minutes’ drive to Kiama and Gerringong and only 20 minutes from beautiful Berry so there was plenty to do if anyone wanted 'time out' from the group.

Even on the days when the weather was not great we were totally comfortable. Plenty to do at the property or nearby. We all dined together comfortably and hosted day visitors with ease.”

“Wow what can I say, this property is amazing! Thank you Drew for sharing your amazing home and allowing people to share in the beauty of this property.

I booked Ocean Farm for a relaxing girls weekend away and it did not disappoint.

You drive down a private road and you think oh no I've made a wrong turn and see endless green grass and the deep blue ocean in the distance and you come to a sign that's says ocean farm, we drive to the house and the views are picture perfect.

The house inside is so cozy and welcoming, so many windows with bay window seats that fit 4 adults to sit and watch the world go by. The kitchen is so well equipped and room for all the ladies to help out, we shared some lovely meals and discussions at the dining area.

I stayed in the main bedroom and there were three other bedroom that all opened up into the deck with amazing views, each with their own bathroom.

We sat in the games room Saturday night and played cards, this room is well equipped with table tennis, foosball, a projector tv which we didn't have time to turn on.

And then there is the Infinity pool that combined with the view just takes your breath away! It didn't matter that there wasn't sun all weekend, your mesmerized by the view and just want to stare into the distance and get lost in the moment!

We went for a walk around the paddocks, the scenery was so nice and it was good for the soul to get out and enjoy the beautiful landscape.

The hardest part was leaving, this house is certainly one in a million, and a home I hope to share with other friends and family in the future.

Thanks also to Craig he was very welcoming and pleasant. The whole experience was first class.”

“A group of 8 of us, plus two kids went down to celebrate a friends 40th birthday together. 

The Ocean Farm was the perfect place to have a holiday/celebration getaway for the weekend. Everything we needed was there and more. It has a spectacular view from the east/front side of the house. The pool also overlooks this amazing view. The rooms are spacious with their own bathrooms. There is an awesome games room upstairs with projector for movies, a pool table, a foosball table and lots of space to hang out. 

The living room is spacious and has a perfect chill out seat that runs parallel to the window overlooking the view that can sit 3 people comfortably lying down. To add extra character, the local train comes running through the mountain at the bottom of the hill a few times a day. The young cows where very friendly and came to great us one morning. 

There are some beautiful walks you can do toward Kiama or Gerringong. If you’re into surfing, there are some great spot around just a short drive away. The local shops are about a 6-minute drive if you need anything.

It was a great experience!”

“We absolutely loved our stay at Ocean Farm. The tranquil setting was just what we needed to sit back and relax and have some real R&R. I was married in the area and while we had a load of family from out of town (which caused us to delay our honeymoon) this retreat was cozy yet luxurious! Everything you need and want. The pool is amazing!! And the manager, Craig, was so lovely, helpful and courteous. My family and I would highly recommend this property and we hope to stay again!!”

“The winter weather at Ocean Farm was an ideal location for 4 couples to enjoy the picturesque and peaceful surrounds. The open log fire with modern fixtures and furnishing provided a relaxed setting each evening where copious bottles of wines and champagne were consumed. A loft over the bedrooms produced an ideal play area for the adventurist.

Each bedroom had it own private en-suite and deck to take in the breath-taking views of the rolling hills and the ocean. The swimming pool is stunning but was a little cold to venture in.

If you enjoy walking there is a coastal walk to Kiama or South to Gerringong township via Werri Beach in less than two hours. There is advise on best foods, good shopping spots and affordable restaurants.

A very pleasant 3 days enjoyed by 4 couples with 5 star tastes.”

“Stayed at Ocean Farm for two nights during the week with a group of 4 others as a short getaway from Sydney. The photographs of the property on the website, whilst stunning, do not do justice to the absolutely serene environment you are immersed in as soon as you enter the property gates. Rolling hills, livestock roaming and there was even a railway line passing through the hillside - absolutely picturesque. The infinity pool was amazing (chilly but worth it). The house itself was very well outfitted that we didn't leave the property for the days we were there. Our host Drew was very attentive in answering any questions we had during our stay. My only disappointment was in not spotting the emus on the property during our stay! Would definitely recommend this amazing place to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.”

“Ocean Farm- a private rural Oasis right beside the sea at Gerringong on the beautiful NSW South Coast. What an amazing place to have spent 3 nights with our families during our Wedding weekend (ceremony/ reception held down the road at lovely Bush Bank Weddings). Check out the movie/ video to get an appreciation on the views and property. Although we did not get to spend much time at the property it was great to take a walk late one afternoon through the paddocks and get some nice photos. Large loft/ playroom was a hit with the kids. Bathrooms are a little dated and pool was cool but refreshing (early March) due to no solar panels and heating costs but not complaining by any means. Thank you Drew for opening your place to others so they can enjoy as much as we did. Walter, Smith & Sonoda families March 2015”

“Hey, Drew hope you’re well… thanks for allowing us to spend an amazing 2 days at your ocean farm house. It was truly an unforgettable experience, honestly, I will recommend this place to many family and friends. Thanks for the truly amazing experience.”



“A great location that feels a million miles away from civilization, but is only over the hill from it. The views are to die for and the house is very well appointed. The daily visit from the emu for a slice of bread was fun & quirky! The owner was happy to go out of his way to ensure everything was in order for his guests. A wonderful family home with a very relaxed feel.”

“This beautiful property will take your breath away. The view is outstanding and the huge bay window with comfy cushions and full glass windows and wrap around verandah was just bliss. The rooms are all queen with own bathrooms and the kitchen just divine to cook in. The hide away games room with huge projector screen is great for the South coast rainy days that can occur. The owner and site manager were just lovely and helped with everything. Great house for a big couples catch up or a girly weekend away.”

“We went to Ocean Farm as four couples all with young babies (10-17 weeks). It was the perfect retreat for us as new families.

The property was amazing. The bedrooms all large with great beds and all with a good view. The Living spaces were both spacious with plenty of room for everyone. We did not feel like we were on top of each other.

Possibly the best element of the property was its remoteness from other properties. It felt like we were all alone and had complete privacy which was great.

 Drew, the owner, was also super helpful throughout the whole process. I would recommend this property to everyone.

 Oh, and the pool was a nice touch!”

“This property is fantastic. It is an easy drive from Sydney however you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle. As soon as you walk in you are in instant 'relaxed mode'. The house is beautiful with floor to ceiling windows and amazing views! We will be back for sure!”

“We had a fabulous weekend at this beautiful home. We are a group of 3 couples and the house was perfect. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we could need. The bedrooms were beautifully presented and it was clean and tidy. The pool and deck make for a very lazy afternoon looking at the ocean. I would fully recommend this home.”

“Six adults and a 5yr old enjoyed 4 nights of bliss. Irrespective of the bad weather we braved the pool many times, cooked up a storm three times daily and built a roaring fire each evening to roast marshmellows and simply admire. We didn't leave for two whole days and even then ventured for 2hrs into Kiama one day and another 2hrs into Berry the next.....only to grab more provisions. Woolworths delivered our homeshop order (placed online prior) within hours of our arrival so we were stocked. Cows visited like clockwork each sunrise. I fought with the coffee machine twice - it won and withdrawal set in but other than that.......an excellent experience.”

“Ocean Farm is a truly special place, we didn’t want to leave. The house is so comfortable and the view second to none. It offers the best of both a seaside and country break. Highly recommended!” 



“We went for a work brainstorm, not only did we have some cracking ideas about our future but we also so blessed to have a retreat in a little piece of heaven. Ocean Farm is so beautiful we didn’t want to leave.”



"Ocean Farm is spectacular! Absolute luxury and seclusion. The pool is beyond amazing, and many hours were spent enjoying the views to the ocean from within the pool. Huge bedrooms and bathrooms (all with amazing views), a kitchen stocked with all of the essentials, a house full of all home comforts, all in a beautiful and peaceful setting. We were lucky enough to spend 5 nights at Ocean Farm, and did not leave the property once! If you want to treat yourself to something out of this world, book a stay at Ocean Farm, you won't regret it. We will be back!"

"This house exceeded all expectations. The infinity pool is amazing, (we saw whales!!), the entertainment room is fantastic, and the emus were so cute! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals, and the property was a short drive from Berry. The only warning I'd give would be in regard to the gravel driveway that leads into the property - arrange for a 4WD*! Other than that - absolutely PERFECT."

"Thank you for allowing us to relax in such breathtaking surroundings. The house and location are simply stunning and luxurious, the property truly exceeded our expectations. It felt like a 5star resort but even better. The best holiday house in Australia! We used the fire place every day due to the rain and bad weather which we had absolutely no complaints about the entire weekend was very relaxing. While on the property we saw sea eagles flying around and whales swimming past...truly amazing!"

“I don't really know how to describe just how phenomenal Ocean Farm is. Our group have been to some pretty spectacular places in the past 10 years but this takes the cake, and eats it too. As you drive through the gate and over the hill towards the property, you just know that life stops and Ocean Farm begins. The pool, the deck, the BBQ atrium, the rumpus room, the TV, the emus...just awesome. Awesome. And a massive thanks to Craig - very helpful and left us to our own devices but was always at hand if we needed. We will be back many times.”

“Thankyou for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We loved it; there is so much attention to detail in the rooms and the layout, the sun shone, the kids spent the entire day in the pool and I loved sitting in the bay window gazing at the view and watching the emus. It was a privilege to be able to stay there.

Craig the farm manager was very warm and welcoming too, leaving us in total privacy with his mobile number in case we needed it. We would love to return next year.”

“Hi Drew, I would just like to let you know what a wonderful weekend we had at Ocean Farm. Us girls have been going away together every year for the past 11 years and this is the first house that we all agreed we will return to in the future. The houses we have stayed in in the past have all been very luxurious (only the best will do!) but Ocean Farm was something else and Craig was very helpful too. So we will be back and will make sure it is in the warmer months so we can enjoy the stunning pool. Emus were well fed and whales came past every day, magnificent! Thanks again and I look forward to returning soon. Regards, Justine.”

“Ocean Farm = luxury surrounded by breathtaking nature. It is by far the most beautiful home I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The living area allows countless activities from lazing on the window seating admiring the view, to playing board games, reading and not to mention the enormous kitchen which would inspire the chef in all of us. The house was spotless with great attention to detail.And we loved the warm fire.

We cannot wait to return to our new home away from home.”

“The most beautiful house. A great getaway. It was fabulous to really enjoy relaxing in such luxurious surroundings. We loved all the beautiful little detail around the house & the boys loved the largest TV screen they have ever seen! Planning another visit in 2008... Can't wait!”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at what literally is a farm on the ocean. The house is beautifully appointed yet extremely homely & comfortable. Watching whales from the deck was the icing on the cake! Can't wait to return when the pool is complete.”

“Even the gorgeous photos did little to prepare us for how beautiful "Ocean Farm" would be. From the vintage chairs and black and white photos to the Ocean views from every room. This property has been put together with such love and care it is impossible not to feel at home there. Whilst the Burrell family allow it, we will be visiting again and again -- it's stunning. SHHHHHHHH... don't tell anyone.”



“BRILLIANT! From the moment you turn off to Ocean Farm you know you are in for something special. The lush green landscape and incredible ocean views are just the beginning ... wait until you open the doors and experience all of Ocean Farm's exquisite charm. Rain, hail or shine this is the perfect getaway. And just when I thought things could not get any better, my boyfriend proposed to me in front of the open fireplace. Ocean Farm really did set the scene for one of the most perfectly romantic times of my life - 10/10.”
