Coastal Cool


A place to relax and unwind.

Bonnie Hindmarsh, one third of the best-friend, busy-mum trio, Three Birds Renovations, is the first to admit she is blessed and despite the chaos of managing three boys and a baby, has transformed their family beach shack into an enviable holiday haven.

Bonnie and her husband Nathan, had owned their Pearl Beach home on the Central Coast of NSW for about six years before the urge to renovate became too great and Bonnie commenced the transition from past to present into what is now considered a true slice of heaven.

With or without Bonnie’s creativity and knack for renovation, the Hindmarsh’s weekend getaway is truly special in its location alone. Bonnie describes Pearl Beach as a “gorgeous little beachside suburb with a short stroll to the beach surrounded by natural rainforest.”

Bonnie and her husband undertook their renovating journey in a series of stages – their first step was to repaint the whole house in Taubman’s ‘Snow Drop’ for crisp, clean appeal, rip up the carpet to expose original timber floors which they subsequently whitewashed for a new lease of life, and make the yard more kid-friendly. Then new decks were added, old aluminium sliders were replaced with French timber doors and an old garage was transformed into self-contained guest accommodation. Lastly, they put in the much needed new kitchen with a servery out to the barbecue for easy entertaining.

For the Hindmarsh family dynamic, Bonnie says their beach house is an integral part of keeping the balance just right. “It is our favourite place in the world. It is just one-hour from home but a million miles away. It has a relaxed energy that forces you to slow down. You can sit on the deck and stare at the palm trees or watch the kids play in the front yard. It is not delicate or precious, it is fun, practical, lighthearted and easy to maintain.”
