About this listing
The uninterrupted ocean views are what make this the best place to stay at Windy Harbour. Relax and unwind in this front row cottage. One of only 220 cottages in the Windy Harbour settlement. Originally built as a shack in the 1950s it now has a few creature comforts like a gas heater, gas hot water, gas stove and gas fridge as the settlement has no mains power. A petrol generator provides lights for the evening also runs the TV DVD and can also charge laptops.
NO LINEN PROVIDED. The main living room overlooks the ocean as well as one on the bedrooms. The fourth bedroom has also been set up as a games room for children. There are 2 double beds, 1 queen and 3 singles. Guests must provide their own linen. Doonas and pillows are provided.
Guests can bring their dogs however they can only stay in the foyer in the house as we have guests with dog allergies or tied up under the house as there are no fences. There is a dog beach.
As you turn into the settlement turn left. Sheerwater is the 5th house on the Oceanside of Windy Harbour drive, It is a beige and white cottage. Park near the Oceanside as there is a ramp for ease of unloading.
Interaction with guests
Arrival time is after 2pm. My in-laws live 2 doors up at 124 and will have the house open and the gas fridge lit ready for our guests. If you have any problems starting the generator please see Les.
Other things to note
Please remember to bring your own linen including sheets,, towels, bath mat and tea towels. Please no hair dryer, or other electrical appliances as the generator is not large enough to operate these items. Laptops, cameras and phones can be charged.
Generators are required to be turned off by 11pm as to not disturb other residents. There is a rubbish trailer available next to the caretakers building. Please be mindful of water usage to help protect this beautiful environment. As Sheerwater is old we would appreciate you leaving us a note if you find something that isn't working or is broken so we can repair it for our next guests. Thank you.
