Beautiful, spacious and rejuvinating ambience. Loved our stay. Relaxing, walking and the views. Fire place great too.

Spa great, views Wow!

Great place for a Honeymoon. Very romantic.

What a magnificent way to spend/celebrate 25 years married to my soul mate! A wonderfully decadent weekend of relaxation, water views, an in house massage, wine, chocolates, candles, peace and quiet. Thank you for making such a perfect retreat. It is all the little things that make the difference here.. special card for us, wine, chocolates, flowers, candles, big coffee mugs, up to date magazines etc, etc,

It was even better 2nd time round if that is possible. This has definitely turned into one of our favourite holiday destinations. As always fabulous hospitality. If you are a returnee you receive cake or muffins. Jane I must have the recipe for your orange cake, Yum. The whales were putting on a show for us whilst in the comfort of A Blue Point House.

Absoultely Love it!!! Thank you Jane and Philip for providing us a wonderful, clean and comfy home with the most amazing view. We want to come back again soon!! One of the highlights was a visit from a local parrot, (Lorikeet), who wanted to nibble our lunch by flying on to our arms. We did not get to see the kookaburra, maybe next time.

Thankyou Jane and Philip for this wonderul retreat! We received a warm welcome to this cosy house. Chocolates, wine, flowers, candles etc. We spent our 31st Wedding Anniversary here, enjoying the many walks and beaches. Blue Point house provided us with a relaxed, contempory living- a perfect way to unwind!

Another magnificant stay at A Blue Point House. Thank you Jane and Philip for providing this spotlessly clean, comfortable, private and lovely retreat!. The generous provisions are the icing on the lovely cake. The beautiful sunrises, pristine waters and birdlife of Vincentia, Jervis Bay make this our favourite place in NSW to stay.

Thank you Jane for providing me with a quiet, comfortable and beautifully maintained place to chill out and recharge my batteries on my own. I felt so safe staying here

Lovely tranquil environment, very relaxing, lots to do in the area. Spa was really good- a great peaceful getaway. Nice meet and great with bubbly, flowers and chocolates waitng for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Jane and Phil.

Another great couple of days in this lovely home--it is my 6th time!!!.Thanks Jane and Phil.

We have enjoyed the stay, listening to birds and enjoying the sites. The house has been so clean and comfortable, it made our stay really special. Thank you so much for your help, you have gone beyond to ensure we were comfortable. Thank you for a relaxing holiday. We will be back for more.

Love the views from the bedroom, balcony and house! Great location. Thanks Jane and Philip for providing us with a very well kept home.

Beautiful house, thankyou for accommodating us. Gorgeous views, beautiful beaches, all perfect white sand.

We had a lovely stay in this gorgeous house. Great location, stunning views-in good weather and bad.

Great house, great views. Enjoyed our BBQ. For short term stays of 2 days it would be good to supply washing powder for clothes.NB we don't supply washing powder for clothes.

Another three days and nights of bliss at wonderful A Blue Point House Jervis Bay. Thank you Jane and Philip for providing this beautifully appointed and maintained airy home with stunning views. We look forward to our return.

Wow-what fabulous views. The water at Blenheim Beach is crystal clear and only 5 mins down the road walking! Thought the Christmas Tree was a lovely touch. Great house, thanks for the birthday card and goodies.

Had our honeymoon night here. Fabulous.

We have really enjoyed our time here- perfect place for a relaxing babymoon!! Love the house and the beautiful views. It has felt like the perfect combination of being able to sit on the balcony watching the water and the kookaburras, reading a book or relaxing in the spa while at the same time being close to so many beautiful places to explore.

Great home to stay at- everything you need is provided. Loved the view across the bay.

Thank you Jane for the use of this wonderful house. We had a perfct time and are so happy we chose this palce to spend our wedding night. The spa is amazing and a great end to any day.

A very few comfortable days. Great views and accommodation.

Thanks Jane for a wonderful week in your beautiful home. We loved the fantastic views and visits from the kookaburra and possum in the evenings. We wished we had a few extra days but work is calling.

Absolutely love this place. What a view. Wonderfully postioned. Beautiful sunrise.

The house was fantastic, everything you could need. Thank you Jane and Philip we had a wonderful holiday.

Where do I begin!! Mother Nature decided to put on a once in a century storm. So we were grounded to say the least. However what a location and beautiful place to be grounded in. We took full advantage of the beautiful, relaxing atomosphere of, fire, spa, DVDs and just enjoyed serentity. Once the heavens cleared we took full advantage of the local spots and the breathtaking views of Blue Point House.We definitely picked the perfect place for our 20th anniversary. Thank you for making it extra special. We can't wait to be back. I have to mention one thing I dislike. That is would be having to leave this lovely place. Thank you.

We had a great honeymoon here. The house is beautiful and so many great restaurants and activities to do.

Loved the views, the house, the fireplace, the spa, flowers, wine, chocolates--- everything. Great anniversary.

Our second time in a couple of months. Spotlessly clean, well stocked general provisions and superb views. The wood fire and tops off this fantastic accommodation.

We were lucky enough to enjoy 11 nights in this amazing house!. The views were fantastic from every angle of the house. We were lucky to see the full moon come up over Point Perpendicular, this was definitely a picture moment. We loved the fireplace and Spa.

Amazing house! It was perfect sitting back in front of the fire and enjoying the view and relaxing.

Came for a relaxing weekend. Couldn't of asked for a more beautiful setting. The photos do not do justice of the great views this house has. Loved the fireplace and very well maintained home.

Came here to relax and unwind. The house was perfect for that!. So relaxed now I don't want to leave, but I will return. Thanks Jane.

Beautiful views. The design of the house is great and the house is immaculate and very comfortable. We loved the fire. We will be definitely be back.

Absolutely gorgeous view. There is nothing quite like waking up to the sunrise. We felt right at home sitting in front of the fire watching it burn into the night. The landscaping enhances the view of the bay. A peaceful, relaxing place. We will be back.

Wow! A beautiful property that really is a joy to stay in. The time went so quickly with so much to do in the National park and area. Jane was really helpful and friendly on arrival. We will be back!

Fabulour accommodation- private, very clean, quality fittings, great fireplace with generous wood supply. We will be back for another wonderful holiday here.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Magnificent views and loved the fire.We too might also have to break our rule of not staying some place twice

Lovely time at your lovely house! Very quiet and peaceful.

This was our first visit. From the moment we stepped inside Blue Point House on a perfect, calm, sunny afternoon, the scene was set for a lovely relaxing holiday. The house is superb, breathtaking views.

Lovely time at your lovely house! Very quiet and peaceful. Lots of beautiful beaches to explore.

Second visit. A well needed rest and a cosy time with the fire.

We had such a relaxing time here- loved using the fire- so cosy. Everything was perfect. Wish we could stay for a week. Will recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed the peace, quiet simplicity and the view(in all weathers). We are returning home relaxed with lovely memories of our anniversary- thank you for all the special touches. The house is lovely in all weathers- a warm safe haven when stormy outside.

We really enjoyed our stay here. So peaceful and relaxing- and what a beautiful view to wake up to in the morning. We were here for a babymoon so loved driving from beach to beach and just relaxing. Enjoyed breakfast on the balcony and chilling in the evening to the good DVD selection. Thank you for the little extra touches in what is already a lovely place to stay. Thanks again. Don't want to leave.!!

Our 5th visit- and gorgeous as ever! Even the amazingly warm, sunny weather was on our side too. Explored some new areas of Booderee national park as well as our favourites. Highlights were the wildflowers and bristlebird, humpback whales and seals, Cape St George Lighthouse and Moses Rock. House just as it has always been, so clean and welcoming and totally relaxing. Thank you Jane and Philip for leaving it with us! See you next time...

Loved the balcony, amazing views and the opportunity to sit back and relax with no distractions. Even had a visit by 4 friendly local kookaburras. We might even have to break our rule of not staying at the same place twice. Extra points for finishing touches. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Fantastic house, views are amazing. loved driving around to all the little bays and beaches, walking in the Booderee national park. Wish we could stay longer but work is calling. Thanks Jane, would love to come back soon!!

Thanks again for another wonderful stay- feeling relaxed and recharged. Lazed in the spa and by the fire.

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful holiday home. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches and wonderful walks plus the magnificent views from the house. I was also very impressed by the cleanliness of the house.

The Post

Home away from Home with Views, by Sue Coulton

Holiday makers have long been drawn to the Jervis Bay area because of the beauty of the surrounds.

Truly enjoying it becomes even easier with the luxurious accommodation offered at A Blue Point House, in the town of Vincentia.

The house, which features spectacular views of the Bay area was built by Jane and Philip Bessell-Browne with the help of a local builder.

It opened in Easter 2000, and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the best value accommodation venues available on Jervis Bay.

It is little wonder.

The house features two bedrooms upstairs with a full bathroom and a large spa bath.

Downstairs, there is a living-dining room,a fully equipped, modern kitchen, a television room, laundry, another bathroom and a large balcony with a barbecue to make the most of the views.

Painted in yellow and blues to enhance the ocean aspects, the house has proved popular during the summer months and the whale watching seasons.

Mrs Bessell-Browne said the couple had been fully involved in the construction of the house and believed it offered good value for money.

"We particularly aim at couples who are after a romantic getaway, honeymooners, anniveraries, Valentine's Day or just people who want to get a way." she said.

We feel the atmosphere is relaxing and we've certainly tried to reflect this in the home."

Close to the beaches, shops, and golf course the Bessell-Brownes believe the Border and the North East residents can fully experience the delight of A Blue Point House by making it a longer stopover, with special rates in place to accommodate those who are looking for a getaway of several days.

Rates and availability can be viewed at the website, www.bluepointhouse.com.au

Vincentia Accommodation

Sydney Morning Herald Review

The building boom of the past 12 months has not been kind to Vincentia, a seaside retreat three hours south of Sydney where the hills overlooking Jervis Bay have been defoliated to make way for dozens of overblown brick-veneer holiday houses featuring triple garages, Corinthian colonnades and hectares of lawn. Take a tour around here and you'll pine for the days of the humble fibro shack surrounded by gum trees.

Luckily, Philip and Jane Bessell-Browne decided to buck the local suburban horreur aesthetic when they built Blue Point House on a hill at the southern end of town. They designed the two-storey house in post-Murcutt style - corrugated roof and walls, airy interiors, blue-and-yellow colour scheme to mimic sky and sand - and kept the trees it overlooks pretty much intact.

Rural seclusion is not the attraction here - the house sits cheek-by-jowl with its neighbours and its interior is designer-modern, with polished wooden floors, corrugated aluminium feature walls, a glass-topped dining table and fittings that smell freshly unpacked. But as a family weekender, it is extremely comfortable, spacious and functional.

The living room has a glass frontage that offers expansive views to Point Perpendicular and Bowen Island, the big balcony has a gas barbecue, and the main bedroom is big enough to play kick-to-kick football in. Bonus points were awarded for the tied bundles of kindling and the Father's Day Heinekens.

Locally, there's a limitless range of things to do around Vincentia - snorkelling in Jervis Bay, whale-spotting cruises, botanic gardens, bushwalks in nearby Booderee National Park, and a one-hour stroll along the Sandy Beach Trail to Hyams Beach, to name just a few. Frankly, we didn't do any of it. Instead, we took a 10-minute stroll to Greenfields Beach, a little, crescent-shaped cove which looked irresistible on the first warm day of spring - aqua water sparkling like frost and tall eucalypts throwing shade patterns over white sand. The rock formations at either end of the beach here offer enough shell collecting/crab spotting/rockpool fossicking to keep an average eight-year-old in Magic Beach mode for hours. Adults can wallow in the hallucinatory feeling that they're in the Cayman Islands.

Later, we went back to the house, broke open the complimentary Wolf Blass white and settled back to watch the stars come out. Those suburban-style mansions up the street seemed a long way away.
