Description

  • Tranquil - watch the walkers and boatees go by from the front verandah
  • Completely fenced, sunny and warm, old style comfortable, check out the formica table.
  • Stroll down the reserve path to explore the harbour, stride up the cliff tops for stunning views

In the heart of South Bay - this is a great place to recharge the batteries.

One minute stroll down the reserve path adjacent to the harbour to see where the penguins are nesting or check out the fishing boats and whale/dolphin watching operations, potter round the rock pools or go for a swim.

Step out to the Peninsula walks, up to the views and back or take the challenge of the loop round the Peninsula, into town and back over the reserve walkway to South bay.

Launch your boat ahead of all the others first thing in the morning - no inside parking but plenty of room on the grass verge. Or snorkel at low tide - clean your catch in the sink/fish cleaning area outside.

Safe for all aged children - have the young children sleep inside the house, or set up the older children in the sleepout, safe but fun to be independent.

View the penguin activity around the Coast Guard - tours at dusk. But if you have a dog, make sure its on leash in that area.

Note the house is waiting for its make over - we have now got our insurance payout, and hope to get tradies soon :)

    Good location, well equipped. A little older furniture but nice little cottage for a holiday with a lovely little backyard deck area.
