About the property

Your Private Piece of Paradise

Bangalay is a 15-acre piece of paradise set on 300-metres of absolute waterfront, with only virgin bush and water as neighbours. Just a 15-minute drive (or a 20-minute boat ride) from the Narooma township through the magnificent Bodalla State Forest,

Bangalay Cottage is set in its own private place amongst native trees looking out over the pristine Wagonga Inlet, and decorated in a casual yet elegant coastal style. It has two double bedrooms, an open plan living-dining and kitchen area spilling out to a spacious veranda, furnished with table, chairs and chaise lounges and a Weber gas barbeque.

The Cottage has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, and you will enjoy pure Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy towels, flat-screen TV, DVD player, audio system, and access to an extensive collection of books, music and videos. On arrival you will be greeted with the aroma of freshly baked bread, with tea, coffee and the basis of your first breakfast provided!

The Cottage is most suitable for a family of four or two couples. During the main summer holiday period, the Cottage is only available at the rate for four people. At other times the base rate represents two people, with additional fees being applicable for each extra person up to four.

Two separate properties are available: this two-bedroom cottage and a one-bedroom apartment which can be viewed as a separate listing "Bangalay Luxury Waterfront Apartment" on this site (listing number 9065205). Each is situated within 30 metres of the waterfront with use of a private beach and boat ramp.

"your private piece of paradise..."

Enjoy wrap-around watery views from your private retreat, where the only signs of activity are jumping fish, water birds and the low putt-putt of the oyster farmers’ punt making their daily rounds.

Whichever property suits, at “Bangalay” you will be able to stay in complete relaxation mode. Watch kangaroos graze from your private verandah, marvel at the prolific bird life, fish from your own beach, collect wild oysters, or take off from the private boat ramp to enjoy the pristine wonders of Narooma’s famed Inlet. You can even venture out to sea to do some whale watching, diving or ocean fishing around nearby Montague Island.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Bangalay Cottage was the perfect place for us to unwind and reconnect as a family. We found many things to occupy our time from hand feeding birds, launching our boat for a spot of fishing to astrophotography.

Rosemary and Alan are gracious hosts and the cottage was exceptionally clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked again!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to relax and unwind. Beautiful surrounds with lots of bird life to watch. My husband, son and I spent our time fishing and relaxing on the deck. Alan's home made bread was delicious and the cottage was imaculate with lovely little extras like Sheridan towels and sheets. Will definitely come back!

Beautiful property, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautifully decorated and clean. Rosemary and Alan were the most lovely hosts; welcomed us with fresh bread despite us arriving at 11pm. There was fresh ground coffee, milk and butter in the fridge and everything you need to cook in the kitchen. The location is very peaceful and beautiful although a little out of town but still easy to get to. There wasn't any reception for our phones because we weren't with Telstra. This wasn't a problem for us as we wanted to take a break from it. Overall, if we are ever visiting nearby, would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sasha for your very kind words. It was such a pleasure to meet you and your friends, a delightful group of young, adventurous people living busy city lives. I'm glad the kangaroos came to meet you and that you enjoyed Alan's fresh bread. We love sharing our beautiful piece of paradise with people like yourselves. And by the way, thanks for leaving the Cottage in such perfect order - we hardly knew anyone had been staying. Look forward to seeing you next time!

We just returned from the gorgeous Bangalay! I cannot say how amazing it was and how much we enjoyed our stay! Rosemary and Allen are the perfect hosts, warm, inviting, friendly but also respected our privacy!

We were presented with Allan's gorgeous warm fluffy bread which was so beautiful. Our plans for dinners were scrapped as it was so much nicer to stay at the cottage and cook our own meals and enjoy the view! The cottage has everything you need, warm soft beds (with electric blankets!), heating, books, dvd's, foxtel etc. and the views are stunning! I spent hours sitting with my book just enjoying the peace and quiet!

This was our perfect stay!! Perfect peace and quiet, which is exactly what we wanted as we are expecting a baby in a few months!

Rosemary and Allan's dogs Dash & Babe were adorable, sweet and very well behaved! :)

We will be back!!

Beautiful Spot

  • 3 of 5

Bangalay was a beautiful spot right on the water, great fishing and the owners were very welcoming.

The apartment was right beneath the owner's residence so unfortunately the thumping of footsteps from the floor above, from the owners and their dogs, was quite intrusive.

The wall of windows, which although had spectacular views of the water, gave us very little privacy, with the path down to the water right alongside us. The apartment was decorated with lots of art work, with the paintings in the bathroom leaving little to the imagination.

The couch, bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, both of us leaving with a sore back and neck.

I am glad that we stayed overall, the wildlife and fishing was worth the trip, but the place although modern and nicely presented, was overpriced for the holiday it offered us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback which is always appreciated. I am so disappointed that "Bangalay" did not live up to your expectations. This is the first time we have had these types of concerns raised, since we began operations a little over four years ago with 495 very happy guests to date!

Excellent property!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bangalay is a very special place to stay, not your typical holiday apartment but a beautifully decorated haven in a wonderful, very peaceful location with nothing but the birds and kangaroos to disturb you ! Rosemary is the perfect host, a warm welcome with fresh bread and all you need to start your holiday. it is a little off the main track but an easy drive into Narooma and such a lovely place to come back to at the end of the day. We will certainly return one day.
