About the property

Cosy cabin for Two on the water's edge of St Georges Basin.

This Cabine is ideally suited for a couple looking for a Romantic getaway or a quiet, peaceful hideaway or an activity-filled time out on the water. Being only a few metres from the water's edge of the St. George's Basin, there are superb water views as you literally have a bird's-eye view of native water birds, fish (jumping out of the water), passing kangaroos, ducks, the odd echidna passing through and a resident bandicoot.

Cabine Algarve was named for the province in Portugal from which one of the owners originated. So the decor of the 'Cabine' displays some mementos from the Algarve.

The 'Cabine' features a cosy bedroom with a comfortable double bed and wardrobes; the bathroom is supplied with white plush towels; a well-equipped kitchen with capsule coffee machine and milk frother, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, electric cooktop and wall oven; air-conditioning in the combined dining and living area with TV and DVD player. There is also a modest selection of books, magazines, games and jigsaw puzzles.

A barbeque is provided on the rear patio by the water's edge and dining 'Al Fresco' is under cover.

Guests also have the use of a two person kayak, to enjoy a lazy paddle around St. Georges Basin or a quiet fishing expedition to catch fresh fish for your dinner.

If you bring your own boat - there is also a mooring available to anchor a boat of 5 metres in length or less.

For the Romantic: Complimentary wine and chocolates for those booking a 2 night stay or longer. The 'Cabine' also has basic tea and coffee supplies.

Parking is provided on site adjacent to the Cabine.

Guests are welcome to leave their vehicle here, load and unload from their vehicle upon arrival/departure. Parking is also available some 20 metres from the Cabine on the property so please allow for a walk of this distance down a sloping path. For this reason the Cabine is not suitable for a person with walking difficulties or a disability.

Rates and Conditions

The 'Cabine' has one double bed and accommodates 1 or 2 adults. The 'Cabine' is not suitable for children, therefore we cannot allow any children to stay as guests.

The property cannot accommodate any pets as there is not a separate secure area. As the 'Cabine' is also recently renovated it is preferable that pets do not stay in the 'Cabine'.

The owners live on the site in a separate residence along with an elderly dog. The owners ask that guests please respect their privacy and please be aware of the dog and close gates, when arriving and departing.

Check in time is normally 2pm, with departure by 10am. These times may be varied following prior arrangements with the owners, at least one week in advance of your stay. Please Note that we do not provide a "24 hour" concierge service.

A 25 percent (non-refundable) deposit is required to confirm a booking with the balance payable 14 days prior to arrival.

A Refundable damage deposit is required at the time of the Balance Payable.

Bookings can only be confirmed by the owners.

There is no additional charge for Bed Linen and Towels.

A one hour standard hygiene clean is also included.

Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for further details.

Restful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to rest and recoup! Accommodation was exceptionally clean, comfortable and beautifully presented with everything you could possibly need. The location is amazing with water metres away. Lovely days spent kayaking (courtesy of owners), lazing in the sun and taking in amazing sunsets and starry skies.

Thankyou Elizabeth and Tony.

Peacful & relaxing place in a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were impressed with the property and its location.

On entering we found it to be immaculately clean & well stocked with all we needed for our short break. The Cabine is absolute waterfront which was just divine. Sitting back in the recliner deck chairs at the end of the day watching the activity on the water & glorious sunsets was perfect.

Staying in Erowal Bay was fantastic. Even though we were there during the busy summer peak period, we found it relaxing with a laid back atmosphere. It's only a short drive to all the local tourist attractions & towns in & around Jervis Bay.

Our contacts for the property Elizabeth & Tony were very helpful and conscious in ensuring our stay was enjoyable and hassle free...Very much appreciated!

The whole experience was simply wonderful & we are so happy to have found Cabine Algarve. We look forward to visiting again in the near future.

We loved staying at the Cabine Algarve. It was so lovely and was like our home away from home. From the moment you pulled back the blinds the outlook on the water was breathtaking.Elizabeth and Tony were very friendly and helpful, even Missy the dog kept us entertained. We can not wait to plan our next adventure. Thank you for everything.
