Anglers Rest Holiday Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

A character-filled cottage with modern kitchen, bathroom/toilet and laundry, set in lovely gardens, only two minutes walk to Bonnie Vale beach. Retaining all the charm of its fishing shack origins, the cottage has been maintained and updated sympathetically to offer a nostalgic weekend or holiday stay. Dine inside beside the wood fire in winter, or take in the water views on the outdoor deck in summer. The property includes a landscaped garden of native and ornamental plants.

Features you will enjoy inside Anglers Rest

The cottage has a guest bedroom with a double bed. An additional double room may be available upon enquiry. The comfortable lounge/dining room/kitchen area has a dining table and kauri buffet with plentiful glassware and tableware. Polished floorboards, carpet and rugs, original artworks and books line the walls, and a wood heater (wood supplied) can be operated as an open fire or enclosed heater. An overhead fan keeps the cottage cool in summer. The owners, keen cooks, have supplied the kitchen with a modern induction cooktop and oven, and full range of cooking equipment, for guests who would prefer to self cater. The newly renovated laundry includes a washing machine & dryer, and the guest bathroom has also been fully renovated.

Plenty to enjoy outdoors too!

The north-facing deck, overlooking the established garden and Simpson's Bay, has a large teak table, outdoor dining chairs and easy chairs. Birds such as kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets & king parrots are regular visitors. Facilities away from the cottage include dining at the Bowls Club for Chinese & Australian meals - a short walk away. Bonnie Vale beach is a two minute walk and coffee shops, groceries and drinks are a 15 minute walk to either Bundeena or Maianbar villages, or a 5 minute walk to the convenience store at the Bundeena Service Station. The Royal National Park backs onto the property, and coastal walks are within easy reach - park the car and do not use it again until you leave!

***Note that the cottage is situated on a steep block and includes an elevated deck. This may be unsuitable for children, or people with limited mobility.***

Serene and cosy - the perfect weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at Anglers Rest Holiday Cottage. The cottage is cosy but somehow still fills spacious. It is very well appointed, in very good condition and has everything you need to settle in for the weekend. There is a fireplace if it's cold and a verandah with a spectacular outlook to just relax and enjoy the serenity. It's a very short walk to the beach and walking distance to the Bundeena shops and cafes. We'll definitely be back.

Amazing Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your property. Everything about it was top notch. Location was excellent and the house was fully equipped of everything we needed. My wife and my kid really enjoyed our stay and will probably go back again for another holiday. Thanks again!

Anglers' Rest is a gorgeous cottage in a fabulous location. It is set in a quiet nook in Bundeena which is in the heart of Royal National park (which is a national treasure (40,000acres - 20 miles from Sydney's CBD!)).

My delight began with garden in which paths and sanctuaries have been sculpted into the sandstone bordered with native plants - it is a fabulous nod to the national park which surrounds it.

The cottage itself was a gorgeous surprise! It has really high quality furnishings,fittings and appliances which have been tastefully deployed. It has a wonderful outdoor/indoor area with a table setting where you can sit and enjoy the views. Best of all are the small things like great collection of CD's and books (as well as the fireplace) which make you feel you are at home albeit in a magical location!

It is an 11 out of 10 if you need to stay in or near Sydney.

Extremely comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a very comfortable couple of days at Anglers Rest. Lovely outdoor dining area over looking the garden. Everything you required for a comfortable stay was provided. Plenty of reading material. Loved the outdoor shower. Waking up to the local bird life was pretty special.
