Our Rooms

Two Studio apartments  and one Motel Style Room. They are attached to our residence but are separate spaces. The studio apartments are under the main house.


All rooms have their own bathroom and private entrances separate to the main house so they can be easily entered and exited at will. Keys are waiting for you, so you can even enter without meeting the hosts, if you wish. We have no neighbours and are surrounded by bush.

What is supplied

TV and player, A/C , free WiFi, crockery and cutlery, a microwave, toaster, fridge, tea and coffee facilities. BBQ facilities, our one acre backyard and a laundry are available. Towels and linen are supplied. There is enough parking for one car per room.


1.8km from Otford Railway Station and a 5 minutes drive to Helensburgh shops, Stanwell Park Beach, coffee shops and Stanwell Tops. The road to the beach and wedding venues are not suitable for walking so Yellowtail Stay is a little isolated without a car. There is a small takeaway cafe nearby.


Prices vary according to the room, time of the week, length of stay and the season, – ranging from the $75 to $140 per night.

Many Happy Guests

What a lovely space, with beautiful design touches. The location is incredible — just across the street from the ocean views at Bald Hill, with easy access to Helensburg and surrounds. I was traveling alone and it had everything I needed to cook a couple of my meals, including a BBQ. The bed was super comfortable and I liked having a little writing desk. Thumbs up.
Our stay with Kathryn and Carl was lovely and peaceful. We had our 4 year old and 8 month old, Kathryn and Carl accommodated all our needs. The space has been well curated with lovely decor, magazines, books, DVDs and kids DVDs which our daughter loved. Highly recommend staying with Kathryn and we’ll be back.
Wonderful place to stay and explore rainforests and the exciting coastline. This venue is a perfect spot to return to and relax with lovely natural forestoutlook and kookaburras outside the window. Lots of extras to make you feel really welcome and a great selection of movies for rainy moments. Thank you
We have a wonderful stay in Kathryn’s place – a beautiful location with kookaburras and bush right outside your window. We would most definitely visit again if we were in the area.
Just perfect for what we needed as we went down for a wedding. Room had everything needed in the kitchenette. Very close to lookout at Bald hill! Kathryn was responsive and accommodating as we had a baby. Would definitely stay again.
Stayed in this place for 4 nights and had a blast. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing. So only really came back for a power nap and slept! Bed was comfy and shower had super hot water! the dream! 10/10
