Arriba’ by definition is...Used as an exclamation of pleasure, approval, or elation!
You will experience all of these feelings and many more when you take a break at this Beachfront Holiday Home!
Arriba is a single story beach home located at Thirroul, just 1 hour drive south of Sydney. Thirroul is a largely undiscovered holiday destination which retains a friendly village style atmosphere
Arriba is ideally located right at Thirroul beach Just a short level walk over lawn and you are stepping onto the golden sands of this beautiful beach where you can surf, swim between the flags, use the surf club facilities, take the kids to enjoy the park, walk or ride along the cycleway all the way to Wollongong or take a dip in the Olympic sized, or toddler swimming pools.
It is the perfect place to feel at one with ocean, being located at the end of the Jones Street cul-de-sac, there is no passing traffic and only 1 other house located in the street. The spacious home has been specifically set up for families to enjoy the ultimate beach holiday.
This is a fabulous place to holiday – long or short break - summer and winter. Surf, swim, fish off the beach, build sandcastles, explore the rockpools, cycle the track to Wollongong or just laze away.
Uninterrupted views all the way to the horizon can be enjoyed from the expansive deck to the east whilst looking westward you can enjoy the Illawarras unique escarpment – really special views! White cockatoos and bright coloured lorikeets are just some of the natural wildlife which inhabit the area.
