About the property

Set on 90 acres of rolling hills, the view takes in Bridgewater Lakes, Cape Bridgewater and the Discovery Bay Coastal Park.

The cottage is ideally located for observing wedge-tailed eagles or the dozens of resident kangaroos, along with the distant passing ships and the odd whale.

Adjoining the property is the Discovery Bay Coastal Park, with trekking adventures through the park to the beach, a must-do for the energetic.

Splendid isolation near the great Southern Ocean

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a fully-equipped house with ALL the comforts of home plus a cosy firen but, out the front of the cottage, is an awe-inspiring view of the widespread blue Southern Ocean beyond rolling large sand dunes. And all around there are large numbers of kangaroos. I was in heaven! And out on the Cape stand tall windmills just to add to the magnificence. The host kindly telephoned to check that all was well and even volunteered to guide me through the sand dunes if I wanted. It was such a lucky find, finding this place on 'stayz'.

Restful with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderfully restful stay. We were greeted with our name at the gate which helped identify the property, and a friendly mob of kangaroos. The cottage was lovely and warm with a big wood heater, and was well equipped with everything necessary to make our stay cozy and comfortable.

The views stretched for miles over the lakes and the sea. Our host was both welcoming and friendly, ensuring that we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back

Great view, great place

  • 5 of 5

Awesome views and great place to stay. Lovely fire, which phil set up ready for our arrival. We booked at late notice, and then asked to stay another night halfway through our stay and our host was super friendly and helpful. Will be back

A wonderful restful break

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I work long hours and at the last minute had a chance to get away for a couple of days. This place was perfect. Phil was so accommodating. The property is quiet and calming. We had breakfast at the Cape Bridgewater cafe and toured the area. Spectacular scenery. Amazing sunset. The house was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Highly recommended.
