Originally built in 1879, the cottage has been beautifully renovated and decorated to create the perfect rustic retreat for the single traveller, couples, or families.
Once inside, the cottage offers a little oasis of calm. The artistic décor includes an eclectic mix of natural materials, vibrant colours, and original artwork in a wonderful blend of old and new. There is even a stunning beach landscape mural in the bathroom painted by Adelaide artist (and son of the owners) Ned Bajic. Step through the front door and into a world of artistic ambience.
This fully furnished cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The living areas are warm and welcoming, the generously sized kitchen is well equipped, and there are two double bedrooms. A sofa bed is included for an additional guest. Guests are also encouraged to make the most of the delightful private rear garden, complete with a bar and barbeque. Two smart new bicycles are included and may be used to explore the surrounding area. In winter, the cottage is a cosy and inviting hide-away; in summer, it offers a welcome respite from the heat.
