About this listing

Nestled in the bush on a 40 acre wildlife sanctuary which adjoins a beautiful beach and the Eurobodalla National Park, this is the guest house on our rural retreat.

The space

Merriwarra Cottage is in an incredibly peaceful and quiet spot on the Sanctuary, and the house is completely accessible for anyone in a wheelchair. There is a ramp from the rear access into the house. The house was in fact built for someone in a wheelchair. It is a simple, clean and well laid out house in good condition and surrounded by bush with the sound of the ocean in the distance. This house is ideal for anyone wishing a peaceful relaxed nature based holiday in one of the most beautiful spots on the South Coast of NSW. The 40 acre(18 hectare) property fronts the 14 km long Bingi Dreaming Track (a National Park walking track). The Meringo Lagoon is walking distance from the house and there are two beaches - Mullimburra and Meringo with great surf breaks and wonderful walking. Moruya with its wonderful farmers markets is 10 minutes north by car. There are no other dwellings visible from the cottage, just bush, grass and horses in the distance. At night there are no lights at all visible outside the house and no car or human noise at all. The owners of Meringo Point Sanctuary have established a wildlife covenant on the property and are working to ensure the various habitats across the property are preserved and enhanced for their biodiversity values. Thus bookings for guests with pets are not accepted.

I really enjoyed the serenity of the cottage and the beauty of Julie's property - with a short walk to the beach. Great value and a wonderful host.

We had a delightful time at Meringo Point, the cottage was roomy and very clean with comfy beds and a great bathroom. The surroundings were lovely and peaceful with kangaroos and yellow tailed cockatoos aplenty. It was a short walk to a superb beach which we mostly had to ourselves. Julie was very prompt in reply and a lovely host. We would certainly stay again

I love travelling, I am passionate about environmental issues, and I am a fabric artist . I love the outdoors and I love the beach. I am also very Australian - open and friendly - happiest barefoot and in nature. However for work purposes we live in Central London in an apartment. I miss our wonderful, spacious, bright, airy and colourful home in Manly and our rural wildlife sanctuary retreat by the beach south of Sydney and we let both of them and on Airbnb so we can stay there whenever we are back in Australia. We have three kids - one in Australia at Uni , one in Canada rock climbing and one in the UK at school still so we are pretty international in our outlook. Our house in Manly looks like us I think - bright, full of evidence of our travels and airy. The cottage on our property at Meringo is cosy, secluded and surrounded by nature.
