Visit the area to immerse yourself in water activities, indulge in the famous local oysters and enjoy a relaxing stay at Anchor Bay. We chatted with owner Helen to learn a bit more about the motel and why she thinks everybody should visit Greenwell Point.

How did you find yourself living in the Shoalhaven?

We moved here about two years ago as we were after a bit of a sea change, and a life change! The Anchor Bay Motel was up for sale and we thought Greenwell Point was the perfect location to start our new life. It’s so relaxing here, the people are friendly and we just love the lifestyle.

Tell us a little bit about your business.

We are a family run business and try to give our guests the best experience they can possibly have. I love telling visitors about the Greenwell Point area so they know all the local hotspots and insider info! I want them all to know what’s around so everyone can have a wonderful time visiting the beautiful Shoalhaven. Our rooms are immaculate and well equipped, a great little home away from home. The motel is a hop, skip and a jump to the shoreline of the Crookhaven River and the local public swimming pool.

My favourite thing to do is go for a swim at the beach and spend some quality time with my family.
