|Minimum Stay||1 - 2 nights|
A character-filled cottage with modern kitchen, bathroom/toilet and laundry, set in lovely gardens, only two minutes walk to Bonnie Vale beach. Retaining all the charm of its fishing shack origins, the cottage has been maintained and updated sympathetically to offer a nostalgic weekend or holiday stay. Dine inside beside the wood fire in winter, or take in the water views on the outdoor deck in summer. The property includes a landscaped garden of native and ornamental plants.

The cottage has a guest bedroom with a double bed. An additional double room may be available upon enquiry. The comfortable lounge/dining room/kitchen area has a dining table and kauri buffet with plentiful glassware and tableware. Polished floorboards, carpet and rugs, original artworks and books line the walls, and a wood heater (wood supplied) can be operated as an open fire or enclosed heater. An overhead fan keeps the cottage cool in summer. The owners, keen cooks, have supplied the kitchen with a modern induction cooktop and oven, and full range of cooking equipment, for guests who would prefer to self cater. The newly renovated laundry includes a washing machine & dryer, and the guest bathroom has also been fully renovated.
Plenty to enjoy outdoors too!
The north-facing deck, overlooking the established garden and Simpson's Bay, has a large teak table, outdoor dining chairs and easy chairs. Birds such as kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets & king parrots are regular visitors. Facilities away from the cottage include dining at the Bowls Club for Chinese & Australian meals - a short walk away. Bonnie Vale beach is a two minute walk and coffee shops, groceries and drinks are a 15 minute walk to either Bundeena or Maianbar villages, or a 5 minute walk to the convenience store at the Bundeena Service Station. The Royal National Park backs onto the property, and coastal walks are within easy reach - park the car and do not use it again until you leave!
