Overview

About the property

Here you have it all. A stunning contemporary make-over with beautiful beaches nearby. It's quality accommodation at an affordable price. Just 15 minutes from Batemans Bay, the property is on a 1000 meter block surrounded by tall coastal forest. Sit out on the deck with a book or a glass of wine and take it all in.

Come and enjoy unlimited high-speed WiFi delivered through our Telstra NBN connection. You can also catch up on movies streamed via Netflix, and of course we have free-to-air television.

It's about a 7-minute walk to Cookies Beach for fun with the kids, or otherwise it's a pleasant ten-minute stroll to the northern part of South Durras beach.

Need a break from the teenagers? They can have their own space downstairs while you enjoy the refinements of the upstairs level. To chill out on a hot day, flick on the reverse cycle air-con and check out the options via the Telstra TV unit in the living room.

And for a break from all that relaxation, Batemans Bay, just 15 minutes away, has a good shopping centre, cinema, and some good restaurants looking out on the Clyde estuary.

Location

From the moment you turn off the highway and start driving through the tall coastal forest, you know you have arrived somewhere special - it's the Murramarang National Park. And Durras Lake, on the left as you approach the village, is one of just three remaining pristine coastal lakes in New South Wales. Walks along the lake's shores give you a chance to experience this area.

For a change of pace, you can explore the Murramarang Resort, which offers a restaurant, bar and poolside meals, where you can enjoy coffee, a beer or lunch.

The house is located on an elevated 1000 meter block of substantially pristine coastal woodland featuring a canopy of spotted gums and an under-storey dominated by the local burrawangs or cycads. We source 100% of our electricity from renewable sources.

As Durras is located in a highly sensitive ecological region, there are few signs of development. Water is provided by rainwater tanks, and we employ a septic system and greywater recycling.

This doesn't mean you need to give up your creature comforts, though. With a comprehensive make-over just completed, the property features a stylish and well-equipped kitchen, polished wood floors, an extensive deck overlooking the forest setting, and comfortable beds throughout.

The property

The property is on two levels. You have the option to take the upper level only, or both upper and lower levels. We respect your privacy, so if you choose to take just the upper level, we will leave the lower level unoccupied for the duration of your stay.

Upper Level

This is the main part of the house and it comprises two generous bedrooms with views out to the surrounding tall coastal forest. The main bedroom has a queen bed, while the second bedroom has a double and a single bed. On this level you have a designer kitchen and bathroom, a dining area, and a spacious living area with HD TV and air conditioning. Four sets of sliding doors lead out to a deck which spans the length of the living areas - the ideal place to do some barbecueing or just relax with a book and a glass of wine on one of the banana lounges.

Lower Level

Teenage kids? Let them have their own space downstairs. This area has separate external access, and it includes a bedroom with three single beds, a bathroom/laundry with shower, and separate toilet. A pleasant living room with two comfortable lounges, a TV and DVD player, looks out onto the lower garden.

Regarding dogs

Your well-behaved dog is most welcome! However, we need you to take your dog with you when you go out. Please do not lock your dog in the house. Dogs left behind can be frightened, feeling they have been abandoned, and they end up scratching doors and architraves. Please also ensure that your dog does not bark at the local parrots, cockatoos, bower birds and lorikeets that will visit you on the deck.

Accommodation rates

During NSW and ACT long weekends we have a three-night minimum stay.

All beds are provided with linen, mattress protectors, high quality doonas and pillows.

Check-in: 2 pm

Check-out: 10 am

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at South Durras Beach escape. The house is well equipped, very clean and in a great location with only 2 minutes walk to the beach. The large balcony amongst the trees is perfect for relaxing. The booking and arrival process with the owners was seamless. We will definetely stay again.

Excellent location on NSW South Coast

  • 4 of 5

The property was just big enough for our group. We had a BBQ and ate on the deck for 3 of our 4 nights (until the mosquitos started to attack!). Breakfasts were also on the deck where we had plenty of birdlife visiting us. Kitchen was very well appointed. Could do with a ceiling fan in the downstairs bedroom though. Easy walk to beach and Murramarrang resort and within 15 minutes drive to Batemans Bay for shopping and restaurants if required. Unfortunately not many kangaroos around. A lovely 4 days for our visiting family from Canada and Africa.

Clean funky and a short walk to both beaches

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice short stay

The house was nice and clean when we arrived

The kitchen allowed us to cook lovely food inside as the weather wasn't great for a BBQ

And we were met each morning by resident parrots, sulphur crested cockatoos, bower birds and wattle birds awaiting a feed ( we took seeds and berries)

The only slight downsides were the very light shower (great for saving water on tank water - we know as we are on tank too, but not too great at getting all the sand off ) and the downstairs only being accessible by an external stair case

But overall a lovely little stay away from it all

Thank you
