We spent 4 nights here and this is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a romantic getaway. Exceptionally clean and high quality, it surpasses all expectations. Open the double sliding doors and you have not only the sun basking in your room, but a wonderful view of the ocean. The balcony is a joy to have a drink in the late afternoon. The facilities are second to none, and the breakfast provided is excellent. The hosts are very nice and helpful, and do not intrude on your privacy. Shutters by the Sea is a fantastic experience to enjoy if you are coming to Kiama for a holiday and we recommend them most whole heartedly.

Thank you for choosing Shutters for your stay in beautiful Kiama. It is truly wonderful to hear that you enjoyed everything. The sea views up there are so good. It is so lovely to be able to share with you our little piece of peace and quiet. We hope to see you both again when you pass this way. Marilyn

This BnB is so exceptional that we are still here and I couldn’t wait to write a review! This is the cutest, loveliest place we’ve stayed on a weekend away. The owner, Marilyn is incredibly friendly and sent us tips of places to see and go. Not only that, but she left a fully stocked fridge for us, plus just about any amenity we could need. The place is a stones throw away from the ocean, so the view is gorgeous. As 2 city slickers, we were dying to go somewhere for some peace and quiet and all you hear at this beautiful property is cicadas at night and the crashing of the ocean waves. The property is beautiful, very sweet and cute and we will definitely be staying here again should we come down to Kiama!

Room was spotless upon arrival. Marilyn kindly provided us with the wifi password and suggested places to eat, explore and general things to do. There was no honey (and I have my tea with honey), so within 2 mins of sending a text and asking for some, honey appeared on the top step! She is an amazing host... she is efficient, kind and proactive. Views are incredible! Comfy bedding and near-perfect pillows. Real roses on the bedside table too. Brilliant place; we will be back!

My husband and I recently stayed here for 5 nights for our quiet honeymoon get away. We were travelling from Tamworth and let Marilyn know we wouldn't be there until 7ish. She told us the room was ready for us with a key out the front. After lugging our gear upstairs, it was lovely to have a bottle of wine in the fridge waiting for us. The next day, we got a text letting us know of popular cafes and places to go and visit. The room was large enough for us. The shower was a great size and the water pressure was really good! Bed was a little hard, but i prefer that in a mattress. There is Foxtel and WIFI as well. Cereals and milk were provided, unfortunately, we aren't big cereal eaters - toast or muffins would have been a lot better for us. Over all, the stay was beautiful, as was Kiama. We will be returning for sure!

Recently my husband and I had a wonderful break away staying at the delightful B&B Shutters by the Sea in Kiama. We stayed 5 nights and felt totally relaxed on our departure. Our host Marilyn left lovely little touches, champagne on ice, that we enjoyed with cheese & fruit at the end of the day, Ferro Roche chocolates, mints & fresh flowers on on our perfectly set breakfast table. There was a text sent to my husband Kim's phone every morning with hints of what to do for the day that we found most helpful especially the free talk at the Kiama boat ramp by Into the Wild feeding the local Stingrays. Very informative & entertaining. The continental breakfast of 3 choices of cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, milk, bread, waffles & maple syrup was more than ample & a great start for the day. Shutters was situated very close to the Little Blowhole & a short walk to the local East's beach which we frequented as it was sheltered and not too populated but still a patrolled beach. Also up the hill from the B&B within walking distance was a great little tapas bar/restaurant known as the Little Blowhole Art Bar. We enjoyed 3 tapas dishes a salad, yummy desserts & cocktail/beers & can a highly recommend! Our time spent at Shutters was a delight and we would have no hesitation to return or to endorse to others.
