The space

This is a charming old cottage with a very contemporary feel. It is made from timber with a tin roof and has a very rustic feel. Nestled in the Tea trees and Moonahs there is no landscaped garden, just bush surroundings. It is fully fenced and private from the neighbours.

Guest access

Guest have access to the entire cottage, is it freestanding. There is ample parking for cars - the gate can be closed throughout your stay is you wish.

Interaction with guests

The only interaction with guests is on arrival, however most times guests will let themselves in with access to the key in a key-safe.

The neighbourhood

The cottage is across the road from the ocean beach - whilst you cannot see the ocean you can hear yet, especially on quiet evenings. 16th Beach for swimming is a five minute walk away, however there are no life savers on this beach. The Reserve walking track is also across the road. It is ten minutes drive to the bay beaches on the other side of the peninsula.

Getting around

No public transport, you will need a car, however guests have said that the taxi service was reliable. There does not appear to be Uber in the area yet. The closest supermarket is Woolworths in Rye, 10 minutes drive. There is a general store with basics just 5 minutes walk from the cottage - it is a 'natural' style store with some organic and unusual stuff.
