"Coasting" @ Port Macdonnell

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

We are a well-travelled family who have learnt along the way all the things that good family accommodation needs. We invite you to stay in a reasonably priced 1940's Mount Gambier stone house that is clean, safe and welcoming.

Beds and plenty of them.

The front room has bunks that sleep 5 and an extra trundle for 1 more. The master bedroom is a Queen for 2 and there is a fold down couch in the Lounge for 2 more if needs be. Of course there is a portacot for the little one.

A Kitchen to Create.

Not just one plate each and a pan that burns everything. Coasting has a well equipped kitchen for creating an intimate meal for 2 or a feast for the whole family.

Sit back and relax.

The light and airy Lounge with its comfy couch and LCD TV is the perfect place to catch up on some DVD's, plug in your iPod to the stereo and unwind with a wine or read a book from our collection. The Dining table and board games make this room a family focal point and the combustion heater will provide the warmth on those chilly Winter nights. We will supply some initial wood and more can be purchased from the General store in Port Mac or other outlets in Mount Gambier


The Garbage bins are pre-painted with stumps and the entertaining area is well placed to cheer on a kids versus parents cricket match. Cook up a storm with the BBQ on the deck or boil those Cray's from the Seafood Co-op in town for a delicious break between innings. The back fence is six and out, over the roof is just plain naughty. The back yard is fully fenced and pets are welcome by negotiation. Pets are allowed outside only. A dog house is provided.

Down and Dirty.

The Bathroom has a shower and a bath for post-game, post surf, post bushwalk clean-up and a washing machine for those fishy, we smell like bait clothes! Bath Towels are provided.


Out and About.

Had enough relaxation and need to get out? The beach is 100m's away, so is the golf course, the Jetty is 200m's away, so is the Pub. There are walking tracks and paths for bicycles and prams. There's a skate park and a Museum. Periwinkle Café for a Latte or some Minimum chips near the playground. A boat ramp is close and the breakwater makes for safe launching every time.

Further Afield.

Mount Gambier has it's Blue lake wonderful parklands while Mount Schank has an extinct cinder cone with a circuit walk around the rim. There are wines to be tasted in the Coonawarra region just North of Mount Gambier and Margaret Rose Caves are just down the road near Nelson. Piccinini ponds, a world famous fresh water cave system is available to dive or snorkel year round and scuba gear can be rented in Port MacDonnell. Sand Dunes and craggy cliffs dot the coast all the way to Robe on the way to the Coorong.

Life's a Beach?

You can surf, swim, snorkel and snooze all on a beach you can park your car on only 4 minutes' drive away. There are coves for exploring and beaches for beachcombing and penguins who come home at dusk to watch. You can fish with the Rods we will leave for you or bring your own. There are boogie boards and snorkels for your use as well. Scuba diving or fishing for BluefinTuna can be organised through Charters.
