Description

36 Schoolhouse Bay Road is the perfect family getaway holiday home, fully equipped to keep adults and children happy for long or short stays. The children will love the jungle gym, the ½ acre securely fenced section and when they can finally be persuaded to go to bed, the bunkroom will let them recharge for the next day’s adventures, for those with smaller children, a portable cot and highchair are provided. For the adults the house is simply and tastefully furnished with everything you need for a peaceful break away from the stresses of modern life. Schoolhouse Bay has good access from the mainland with the public ferry jetty only a few minutes’ walk from the house, and to make it even easier you can use the owners 4x4 to move your belongings and family between the house and the jetty. The house has 4 good sized bedrooms, one of which can be used as a second lounge or children’s play area, 2 bathrooms and a large lounge/dining area, expansive deck with BBQ and ample seating. With easy access to the numerous walking tracks around the island you can visit the historic Mansion house with its superb cafe, explore the fascinating copper mining heritage of the island, paddle around Schoolhouse Bay in the kayaks and dinghy provided or simply sit and listen to the birdsong from the deck or garden with a drink close to hand. All you need to bring is food, drink and the desire to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life for a while. The Bunkroom is set up as a children's room therefore a maximum of 6 adults are able to stay at the holiday house.
