About the property

Come to the Cottage for a wonderful warm get away...special weekend pricing now available.

The Cottage has two bedrooms, large ktichen, lounge and dining, bathroom and laundry. All our furnishings are modern and clean. Our crockery is "Maxwells" and all the wine and champagne glasses are new and clean. There are games to use, videos to watch or just gaze out the windows at the birds, the ocean or the bush. It has a great aspect looking straight out to the Pacific with nothing but a reserve between you and the ocean. The yard is secure. It can accommodate four adults - the master bedroom has a queen size bed (Electric blanket), the second bedroom is able to take 2 + 1 using the 'trio bed'. Family of five would be very well accommodated. Should you require use of the Porta Cot please let me know in advance of your stay.

There is a large deck looking out to the reserve and ocean which is relaxing all year round and a great rocky cove at the bottom of the reserve for explorers. There are great fishing spots and walks.

The Cottage is walking distance (less than 10 minutes) to either Garden Bay (north) or Malua Bay beach and great shops and restaurants (south).

The house is available for weekly rental and weekend getaways.

Worth it just for the Deck

  • 4 of 5

A clean cozy little beach cottage with an amazing deck out the back, that actually had shade. Temps may have been low twenties but the sun had some bite in it. Half a day was easily wasted lounging on the outdoor lounge doing needlework and listening to the ocean. A lovely enclosed yard for the dogs with plenty of shade and enough room to throw the ball. The bedroom was plenty big enough to fit my large crate (think big enough to fit a lab collie cross and a border collie) and suit case open on the floor without tripping over anything. Walking distance to the main beach and a short drive to the dog off leash beach at Pretty Point. There was also this very handy tide clock which meant I could time my trip to Pretty Point with low tide as there isn't much beach left at high tide. The owner was very accommodating of my last minute booking, I made my booking request Thursday before Easter for Tuesday following Easter! I'll definitely be back, but I'll book a little further in advance next time :).

We had such a great weekend at the Cottage. The backyard and the deck were amazing for our two dogs.

Loads of dvds available and use of Coffee machine was very handy.

Location is very close to the beach and shops. Would definitely recommend to others!!

An older cottage, but well-maintained and clean.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there. Although it got quite hot and stuffy in the living room, the fans and the sea breeze helped to cool down the room. The pantry and kitchen were well stocked. The best part of the house is the back balcony and the huge backyard which opens out onto a grassy reserve with beautiful views of the water. Although our Dutch Shepherd stayed inside with us most of the time, she also liked the backyard and reserve.
