Historic Harbourside Cottage Reopens For Stays

Looking for a unique couple’s hideaway in Sydney to celebrate an anniversary, pop the question or treat someone special? Look no further than historic Steele Point Cottage in Nielsen Park, Vaucluse, which has recently undergone a beautiful restoration and reopened for guest accommodation.

Offering multi-million-dollar harbour views, yet nestled in the natural beauty of Sydney Harbour National Park, the quaint cottage is an ideal choice for nature-lovers looking for a romantic weekend escape.

The self-contained, one-bedroom cottage is spectacularly perched on a headland overlooking Sydney Harbour. It features a master bedroom, refurbished bathroom and kitchen, lounge room, sun-room, outdoor patio and BBQ.

Guests can enjoy the comforts of the cosy cottage, relax and soak up the spectacular views on the private terrace, or head out to one of the many attractions and activities right on their doorstep including scenic habourside walks and swimming spots.

Popular, picturesque Shark Beach is only 100 metres away, with its safety-netted swimming enclosure, as well as a harbourside café, grassy picnic areas and panoramic harbour views across to the city skyline.

Visitors can stroll along one of Sydney’s best harbourside walks on the Hermitage Foreshore track. This leisurely 1.5-kilometre trail weaves along the harbour foreshore, offering stunning views of Shark Island, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the grounds of historic Strickland House.

History buffs can also enjoy learning about the fascinating history of the cottage and surrounding area. The cottage was built in 1880 as a gunners’ barracks to support the adjacent Steele Point Battery – part of the elaborate system of harbour defences – and designed by the NSW Colonial Architect James Barnet.

The cottage has been managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service as part of Nielsen Park since 1975 and was previously used for short-stay visitor accommodation. Recent restorations have improved the accommodation offering, providing guests with the opportunity to experience an unforgettable stay in one of Sydney’s most prized locations.
