The space

This view pictured is from the seating public along our beach. The beach is tidal so we have the variety of great swimming etc interspersed with sand flats ideal for strolling. We rarely if ever suffer biting midges here so evening beach strolls are highly pleasurable. The summer winds are from the North directly across our sea which makes our property cool even on the hottest days. Our beach faces due North and is protected by the foreshore vegetation from South Easterly winds.
Our beach is dog friendly with a 24/7 off leash beach 50m along our beach to the East. In front of our property is timed off leash. So mornings and evenings are off leash but during the day dogs need to be leashed.
We are approx 8kms from the Hervey Bay CBD. The Arkarra Tea Gardens are close-by for dining and walking. You can experience much local wildlife while walking around the fresh water lake here. The Mungomery Vine Forest is a short stroll away.
If you enjoy the beach and nature we really are a place where the forest meets the sea.

Guest access

Guests have 2 bedrooms a bathroom/laundry and kitchen/living area. There is a front verandah and small deck area outside. The main bedroom has a Queen size bed with King size Doona and the 2nd bedroom has a double bed with Queen size Doona. Television, DVD player, Wi Fi, Washer, Fridge, Cooktop, Oven, Microwave, BBQ etc.

Interaction with guests

We both work so interaction with us face to face will be limited. Guests can use the house deck with sea views when we are not home as long as they look after the safety of our small dogs while doing so.
We look forward to meeting you and will provide assistance when needed to make your visit thoroughly enjoyable.

The neighbourhood

Our area is acreage development and retains a wonderful natural habitat. It is a peaceful place separate from but close to our beautiful city of Hervey Bay. Having the sea directly behind our property makes living here extra special. Ospreys and Lorrikeets etc nest in the trees around us and we have wallabies, kangaroos and much other native wildlife at our back door. Bliss.

Getting around

Public transport is limited so a hire car would be advisable. There is a pick up service from the local Craignish pub. There is a public bus service but it is not frequent. You can get Pizza delivered here also!

Other things to note

We are still completing the house landscaping and garden.

My family of 4 (2 young boys, hubby and a very exuberant dog ;-) ) stayed with Sue and Graham over the Easter break. So glad we found this little gem on airbnb as we had the most comfortable and relaxing holiday. The beach is only a few meters away where we paddle boarded at high tide and then at low tide the boys had a ball walking out over the sand banks and catching crabs and sea cucumbers. We loved that we could take our "fur-child" as well where he ran and swam not stop as the beach is off-leash at certain times in the day and then he had a very sizeable and fenced yard to roam around in back at the cottage. The cottage was well equipped and clean, we even enjoyed a BBQ out on the little deck one evening. The location is also great, only a 5 min drive into Hervey Bay where there's a free water park for the kids. There's so much to see and do but also a great little place to have some downtime with the family. Thank you again for having us, we will definitely be back!

Our family of 2 adults, 3 children & 1 golden retriever puppy LOVED our stay at the cottage. Right on an off lead dog friendly beach, where the tide goes out 300m, it was a perfect location to enjoy a walk/swim as a family with Tilly. The cottage was very comfortable & well equipped with everything we needed for our long weekend stay. We enjoyed using the BBQ one night & a quick drive into town for dinner on the next evening. The large fenced garden was fantastic for Tilly to run around & the kids to play also. Very quiet area which was perfect to sit outside, read & relax. Sue & Graham were such lovely hosts providing us with tips about family friendly spots in town & general information about the area. We would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you Sue & Graham, we look forward to coming back in the future with both Tilly & Billy next time.
