About this listing

Our cottage is the 7th house from the beach. and overlooks rolling fields with cows happily wandering and grazing, We have kept our furnishings simple & therefore restful. Imagine dining outside, under the the stars and listening to the sounds of the ocean. A Webber BBQ is available. There is also a little shady alfresco with lounge next to the outdoor dining area. A space to stretch out with a good book. There are two living spaces, one at the front of the house which includes open plan kitchen , dining & lounge with wood fire and a separate lounge tv room. There is ducted heating throughout. Our family guitar is there for you to play. It's a beautiful old thing, bought for us by a group of friends in Ireland. Please care for it lovingly. Our cottage and in fact all of the houses at Merricks Beach are on rainwater and as such we don't have a laundry at home. We pop down to the local shops where the Balnarring Laundromat is situated. The ladies there can offer you a service wash or you can DYI and slip around the corner for a yummy brunch or cuppa whilst the washing is being done. We do have an outside clothesline if you prefer your clothes to dry naturally. There is a little circular stainless steel basin in the bathroom if you would like to do any hand washing. This basin is also the perfect size for bathing a little one. We have left some Ecco friendly laundry detergent just in case. There is tea and plunger coffee & some organic sugar for you to enjoy when you arrive. The water you drink is from rainwater tanks that are filtered.

Merricks Beach has many quirky cute cottages and sweet tree lined roads to wander along. It's a seaside community who regularly gather for foreshore clean ups and who deeply care for the environment. It's the kind of place where you can knock on your neighbours door if you need something. Our next door neighbour a has a garden full of unique sculptures - my favourite is a Michael Luneig sculpture of a bird & egg that we are lucky to see everyday from our front porch.
We are members of the Merricks Beach Association and as such have use of the tennis courts on the cliff walk so byo tennis racquets and balls.
