Deedy's Nest-Couples Retreat, MYSTERY BAY

Bedrooms 1
Space 100 m²
Property type house


About the property

Entire house, with a large home feel amongst native garden, just for a couple

Deedy's Nest has a large open plan living/dinning/kitchen area, bedroom with walk-in robe & iron/ironing board cupboard, spacious bathroom/laundry, study & tons of built in storage surrounded by over a 1000sqm of native gardens & tall gums. The Living, Bedroom and Study have huge windows with double sliding glass doors that look and walk out onto individual undercover decks through to the garden.

****Just before I let you know all the great things about staying here and enjoying Mystery Bay -

Pls Note; For the more budget conscious you can bring your own towels and sheets for Queen Bed....We will supply linen, on request, for an extra $30 ***

.... as well as being one of the very few couples accommodations where you get to have the whole house and garden, to yourselves, to totally relax in ......

There is;

An easy stroll that will get you to the Main Beach or a 2km walk or drive thru national parks to 1080 Beach and much, much more unspoiled, natural bush , beaches & National Parks.

-Unfortunately, due to the proximity of the National Parks and the amount of wildlife in the area we are unable to accept pets of any kind.

*** NB Couples Treat - No WIFI & poor media reception - if you can't bring yourself to turn it off or your partner wont put that device down - Mystery Bay is where you can get each others undivided attention & the outside world can't disturb you either "OFF THE GRID!!! YAY !! " ***

(Mystery Bay is not serviced ... so no range - you can get a little range from the beaches ... & the odd text outside the house ... or go to the top of Mystery Bay Rd for full reception. )

This includes the TV - In good weather the reception can be ok but in poor weather reach for the selection of DVDs in both drawers, below TV unit, and snuggle in!!!!

Things to do in and around Mystery Bay

There are no shops at Mystery Bay for that added seclusion, intimacy & really "get away from it all" feel....

if long walks amongst the tall gums, national parks & beaches isn't enough

there is .....

-Narooma just 10 minutes drive for restaurants and shopping (& more beaches)

-Bermagui is 15 minutes in the opposite direction for more shops & beaches & fast gaining a reputation for it's coffee, restaurant & wine bar culture....

The historic town of Tilba is also only 10 minutes at the bottom of Mt Gulaga for the more hardy a view at the top, or even half way, which is well worth the effort.

Facilities at Deedy's Nest

Interaction with Guests;

We live 10 mins up the road & are only a phone call away .... and happy to advise or help with any requests or questions if needed.

Getting Around;

A car is recommended ... but one can get to Narooma by bus from any major city then a 10 minute taxi drive would be required ... remembering we are essentially a regional area.... or flight to Moruya Airport where car hire is available and 30 min drive.

Other Things to Note;

recommend you bring your food supplies with you. Narooma (10 mins drive) or Bermagui (15 mins drive) have full shopping facilities & supermarkets if you need or forget anything.

We supply basic needs - a small amount of;

1. tea, coffee, sugar & milk

(coffee is instant - so if you like good coffee there is a coffee plunger or Nespresso Coffee Pod machine with stainless steel refillable pods. Same with tea bags - if you bring your favorite loose leaf tea, we supply tea pot with hand knitted cosy.)

2. condiments eg; salt, pepper olive oil spices and stock powders etc

3. Queen Bed has; mattress protector, 2 pillows with pillow protectors(extra 2 pillows in cupboard), 2 extra throw pillows with quilted covers for sitting up in bed & a coverlette (extra blanket in cupboard). ****NB Linen supplied is sheets, bath towels, bath mats etc & beach towels which are $30 p/w extra, after 1st week if staying longer than 1 week ....

4. If supplying your own linen - (we recommend bringing) Queen size fitted & flat sheet, 2-4 pillowcases, bath towels, hand towel, bath mat & beach towels .... else we can supply, for extra $30, by request after booking.

FYI; Our price per night is $120 p/n low season ( std rate) &

$145 p/n in high season.

There is a one off per booking fee of $35 reset/basic clean fee

High season is in Christmas/Jan hols

& Easter/April hols (ie approx 10-12 weeks of the year.

Other 40-42 weeks are at low season rate.)

Hope you enjoy your stay. Janinka :)

About Janinka Francki

My husband & I live on the Far South Coast of NSW, 10 mins drive from "Deedy's Nest" & Mystery Bay. Our passion is surfing, the beach, great outdoors, natural unspoiled environment & all the simple things life has to offer. Because we love it here and to accommodate family vists we wanted our family holiday home to be here too. This would allow us a little change of scenery to fully relax & totally enjoy the pristine environment in which we live and family members could use it too. After purchasing "Deedy's Nest" we decided to share her with other couples, during the times we weren't using it, and found that she was really well received! We also found we actually enjoyed sharing her & her environment.

Janinka Francki purchased this house in 2013

Perfect full house for couples in a magnificent location, surrounded by beaches and national parks

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a magnificent location, close to several wonderful beaches and virtually backing onto a forest. Wallaby's on the front lawn with your morning coffee, fabulous bird life and the constant rumble of the surf. Who could want for more? The house itself is wonderfully interesting, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with all the essentials. The bed is comfortable and the whole place exudes peace and relaxation.

Great place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Deedy's nest was a wonderful surprise. A perfectly formed hobbit house nestling into the tall trees, but open and spacious inside. Spotlesslessly clean, with thoughtful touches such as tea, Coffee and basic spices provided. Privacy may be improved if the main Windows had more than net curtains, and the composting toilet took a little getting used to, but For me it is the perfect holiday home. can't understand why you would want to replicate a suburban house on the coast. This one is perfect.

Paradise in the national park

  • 4 of 5

this is a great property, so close to the national park and main beaches - really enjoyed walking through this. the planted bush and shrubbery out the front offer a feeling of immersion in nature and privateness which my partner and i really enjoyed. big thanks for leaving some tea bags and spices for cooking, things you forget about! We really recommend this property highly, ultimate location for lots of activities!
