The Good Life, Bawley Point

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

The Good Life is exactly that. Located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac, it is a 60m walk to stunning, dog-friendly and off leash Cormorant Beach.

Flanked front and back by green beach reserve, it boasts a fantastic new front deck; a private, rear deck lounge; and even a 1.6m high glass-fronted beer fridge to ensure you're never without a cold, refreshing beverage! Recently revamped to meet all your holiday needs, including beautiful new bamboo flooring in the lounge room, hallway and stairs, there's an outdoor shower, a secure area for your puppy dogs, and even a separate TV area and bunkroom downstairs for the kids. Upstairs, the grown-ups can commandeer the new 48" smart TV with free Netflix for themselves and an office area and wireless internet means you can extend your holiday and work from home. Your boss need never know!

Come and experience The Good Life. The reluctantly overseas owners have worked hard to make it more than a home from home, especially with the front deck - giving you that extra piece of alfresco space to enjoy the views; soak up the sun; or cool down in the shade. They're also very jealous that you'll get to enjoy the fabulous new flooring before they do!

Bedrooms include 1 king, 1 queen and a 4-bed bunkroom. Bathrooms include a main family bathroom with a bath and a separate downstairs shower room.

TOP TIP: Sleep with the blinds open in the king and queen bedrooms so you wake up to the awesome views!

Oh and out of season, if we don't have guests immediately either side of your booking, we endeavour to let you check in earlier and out later!

PS - Please no cats, afraid one of us is allergic.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the good life. It was the perfect place to take our fur babies with us on a little vacation. The house was neat and tidy and all the necessary amenities were provided. Excellent location to get to the beach. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Ann for your wonderful review, we're really delighted you had such a lovely time and we do find that dogs tend to love it just as much as their owners - especially with the off leash beach just across the reserve! Hope you manage to get back soon and stay for longer this time :-)

A perfect getaway for teenagers and adults alike

  • 5 of 5

This property catered our stay perfectly - A party of two adults and three teenagers. Being an ex-local myself, I tend to have high expectations for where we stay, and "the Good Life" met them easily. Located across the road, through the trees, and just a few minutes walk down the track; and voila! you are on Cormorant beach. We took great delight in waking up early to watch the sun rise over the ocean every morning, returning back to the house to soak up the sun with a cuppa and a book on the verandah of choice. A big thank you to the hosts. A lovely experience was had by all.

Comfortable pet friendly accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We booked an impromptu 2 nights stay at the Good Life which we (and our 3 dogs) thoroughly enjoyed. This property is set in a quiet cul de sac opposite a small nature reserve and a short walk to the 24 hour dog friendly beach. The property is clean and well equipped. It was nice having the full deck at the front and a smaller enclosed deck at the rear. The only thing to note is that the garden is unfenced but there is a small enclosed area in the garden for dogs.

A very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The description of this place is spot on. The best feature is of course the location, just opposite the beach. We stayed here with our dog who absolutely loved the beach, as did we. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy for your fantastic review, we're thrilled that you loved the house and of course the beach! It is such a perfect spot for dogs, especially as it's off leash and usually quite quiet. Hope to see you back again soon for some R&R! Kind regards Vicki

Relaxing Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a great time here! A short 1 minute walk through the reserve leads you to a secluded beach which the dogs and kids really enjoyed.

We were welcomed with a very clean property that was very well prepared. We ran out of gas half way through cooking On the BBQ, but there was a full tank ready to hook up and keep cooking!

Shops are only 2 minutes drive away and the locals are friendly.

Will be back in a few months!
