About the property

2 decks with water views, the perfect place to relax and unwind

The cottage has a real fresh beach feel. Every room has been designed to provide a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere with its unique furniture. Start your day with a real espresso while you decide whether to head out or chill out.

The two large decks overlook the water. Lounge and dining areas are perfect for entertaining, and the sitting rooms with their beautiful views are cosy and relaxing.

There is a grassed area overlooking the water that’s fully fenced so it’s ideal for the little ones and the family pet.

This house is a perfect retreat during winter with the fireplace in the top living room bringing warmth and cosiness to the evening. With plenty of warm throws and blankets, all you need is a glass of wine to relax on one of the decks, watch the sunset, and enjoy the distant lights.

Two large decks with expansive water views

Lounge and dining areas

Sitting room/entertaining area with fireplace

Getting around

Head in the other direction to Empire Bay, Copacabana, McMasters Beach, delightful Avoca Beach and buzzing Terrigal.

Quiet, peaceful, a million miles from anywhere and a stone's throw from everywhere. You will be enjoying the view over Brisbane Water, and just over the hill is the surf.

Bouddi National Park is at your doorstep. Small secluded beaches, fringed by rainforests, sandstone cliffs and coastal heaths blanketed in wildflower colour, make Bouddi National Park one of the most diverse and delightful reserves within the greater Sydney area.

All the tourist hotspots and the hidden gems of the lower Central Coast are within a short drive.

We had fantastic time here. Beautiful setting with everything we need in the beautiful home. Max was so effIcient and provides great info on property, places to go and surrounding areas. our little boy (2 1/2) was abit unsteady in garden and steps so would be more suitable for older child but fab place to bring pets with enclosed garden and walk to the public jetty at bottem of garden.

A amazing retreat! Great cottage feel

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to stay here and we were very impressed with the property. It was decorated very nice and was accomodating in every possible way. We went with my young daughter who had just turned 2. There was plenty there for her in terms of child safety. For the adults we completely loved the layout and feel of the place. It was true to its heritage and gave a great cottage feel while still enjoying a modern touch (i.e. Dishwasher, Foxtel etc.) The place was very big and was located in a great area. Plenty to do within a short drive, but overall we loved how relaxing it felt just simply staying in and looking at the view on the deck. The owner was great with communication and was very friendly and courteous throughout. Overall we found this cottage exceptional in every way and recommend it for anyone looking for a getaway in a true cottage. Thanks and would happily return!
