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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Thanks for the review Blake. Yes we need to move the fire down the hill out of the wind more. It has been there 40 years! It's on the todo list. Cheers Judith

The location is so special - hearing the sea so close, and being able to walk down to the secluded beach - it was heavenly. We loved the house too - great beach feel - we felt so relaxed here. The host and her family who help are unbelievably helpful and beautiful people. Lots of great things to visit nearby too - beaches, and the town of Northcliffe has a great Information Centre with wifi - loved the museum too.

A lovely weekend away from it all. The charm of Judith's place is its proximity to the beach, its distance from mobile phone coverage and its spaciousness. Nice to kick back, read, watch DVDs and play card games with my family. Not to mention beach driving, walks, swimming and fishing. Thanks Judith :)

Perfect remote getaway to Windy Harbour for the whole family including our friendly dog. Close stroll to endless beach walks for relaxation, exercise and beach combing. Amazing views sitting on the deck. Terrific if you have a boat, fishing gear and/or a 4WD, but loads of fun and relaxation if you don't. Really friendly helpful people/neighbours around.
