Our clean and comfy apartment has a beachside feel. It comfortably fits 2 or 3 people. It is located at the back of our home, but is private and has separate access. Enjoy a hot outside shower after a swim at Nelsons beach 200m away.

The space
Our place is a granny flat in our backyard. That means it is located close to our house. However, the granny flat is screened to maintain your privacy. We share the backyard but we are very careful to ensure that you have privacy.
4 people is probably a tight squeeze - more suitable for a couple or 3 people

Sustainability is important to us. We have 5.2 kw solar panels, 2 compost bins, a solar composter, a worm farm and a bee hotel! We recycle everything we can.
Soft plastics are eaten by our marine animals and food waste in land fill produces methane which is 25 times more harmful than CO2. Please help us to aim for zero waste. Please also use electricity and water wisely during your stay. Our guests are fantastic at separating their recyclable waste and minimising their waste - see photo

Jervis Bay is a beautiful marine park, famous for it's dolphins, clear water and white sand. Whale watching is around July, then October/ November.
Three beaches near us were just voted in the top 5 of Australia's top beaches!
Plantation Point in Vincentia is located between Huskisson to the north and Hyam's beach to the south. Our little flat is a short walk to the sailing club and to beautiful Nelson's Beach 200m down the road.

White sands bushwalk to Hyam's beach is an easy 3.5km walk. Walk to Hyam's Beach Cafe for a well earned lunch! Hyam's Beach is lovely, but avoid it on weekends. Nelsons Beach, Blenheim Beach and Greenfields Beach are possibly prettier and share the same sand and beautiful Bay

2 bikes and helmets are available on request to cycle on the coastal bike track to Huskisson (6km) It follows Jervis Bay most of the way to Huskisson.
There are great cafes and restaurants at Huskisson. (Try "5 Little Pigs").
Bookings are required for dinner at most restaurants. Not the pub.
Dolphin and whale watching cruises are available from Huskisson. There is also an old fashioned lovely cinema located at Huskisson. There is much more information in our guidebook

There are many walks and beaches to explore -too many to list. Body boards and surfboards also available on request - the nearest surf beach is Cave Beach in Booderee National Park (approx 15min drive)
A Coles supermarket is approx 1 km up the road. There is a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, and great BBQ to use if you prefer to cook your meals
Tennis racquets available on request. There is lots to do and you can text or ring me and ask for advice

Guest access
Very pleasant backyard, shared but we are rarely home
2 bicycles with helmets
body boards /surf boards (security deposit required) (a drive to surf beach though)
2 sets of snorkels, frisbees (snorkelling best near sailing club where there is reef)
your own Steigler and Brown BBQ
tennis racquets and balls on request

Very quiet neighborhood. We love being so close to 2 beaches, so that you can choose which one to go to according to the conditions. There is also a lovely park between the beaches. We love the natural beauty and the understated nature of the area.If you enjoy the simple things in life you will enjoy it here. Have a swim in the bay and then a hot outside shower and relax on the day bed!

We are an active couple who just like people. We have lived in this area since 2012 and holidayed here ourselves for many years before moving here. We think your privacy is important during your stay, so while we are happy to have a chat and help at any time (ask us about the best coffee, restaurants, bushwalk or beach), we will leave you in peace. We love the simple things in life, like watching the dolphins playing in the Bay. We just love to share this very beautiful part of the world with others.
