About this listing

Nestled in a spotted gum forest of 6 acres with river frontage to the Bermagui River & less than 10 mins out of town & surrounding beaches (4km on a well maintained dirt road), Moonrise caters for people looking for a bush retreat who enjoy the dawn chorus of birdsong, the waves breaking from the surrounding beaches, bird watching, kayaking, bush walking & more.

The space

Catering for singles or couples (with a child) the studio has one bedroom, sofa bed in living room, bathroom, with a lounge/dining area and kitchenette. All rooms have spectacular views of the tidal river.

There is an abundance of bird species as well as wallabies, kangaroos, possums and the odd lace monitor (goanna) and echidna.

Guest access

Guests have access to walk around the property as well as the vegetable garden and are welcome to help themselves to the herbs and vegetables depending on what is in season.

Tom and I enjoy meeting guests and showing them around, as well as suggesting places of interest to them. We also respect your privacy.

The most heavenly place to stay! The house itself is beautifully simple and modern, and the view is breathtaking. I also got to enjoy fresh local produce for breakfast, and gorgeous flowers by my bedside. Susan is such a wonderful host, and I look forward to returning whenever I get the chance.

Susan's place is cosy and secluded, with amazing views over Bermagui River. We had a really relaxing stay, the bed was comfortable and breakie delicious. We hope to be back!

This place is a patch of paradise: stylish comfortable accommodation, generous provisions and sunrises with a divine birdsong chorus. It was just beautiful.

Susan's house is good looking inside and out! It's well appointed with an excellent collection of magazines and novels. We loved the view, the care taken (fresh bread/ milk/ honey and other nice touches) and general feel of the place. Would definitely stay again.

Moonrise by the River is a real gem! So happy that I found this place. Too bad that we only managed to get in for supper time and had to leave soon after brekkie! The space is minimalist but had everything that you need for your stay. Even the sofa bed was comfortable for a good nights' sleep. The provisions for brekkie was a real treat. Loved the fresh ingredients and the folks really enjoyed their short stay. Managed to catch the sunrise peeking through the trees. Will definitely be back for a longer stay! Thank you Susan for your hospitality and sharing your space. =oD
