Cast-away is available all year round and is pet-friendly for one small dog. Throw in your towels, sheets (or we can arrange linen hire for you - see rates below) and grab some food supplies along the way and you're set for a casual beach escape. Cast-away is set among beautiful sheltering trees. The Cast-away 'walkway' provides convenient access to the beach pathway opposite that leads directly onto beautiful Macmasters Beach. While the kettle's boiling for the morning cuppa, you can check out the surf and beach via the path opposite. Accommodation comprises 2 queen bedrooms, and a 3rd bedroom with a king single and 1 single bed and a trundle bed (on-request). All bedrooms are bright and airy. The bathroom and an additional powder room are both recently renovated and include shower, 2 toilets and 2 vanity areas.
Cast-away has a large rear fully secured deck with semi roof covering for weather protection. This deck is sheltered and provides a 'birds-eye' view of the local wildlife with baby mudlarks nesting on nearby tree branches, lorikeets, blue bower birds displaying their finest and bush turkeys visiting. This deck is perfect for bar-b-ques and outdoor dining (table seating for 8) and for catching up with some quiet reading time away from the hectic pace of a day of beach, fishing and surfing. There is also a second covered deck leading to the front door and off the boardwalk providing a lovely sunny morning aspect (perfect for the early morning cuppa) and another great afternoon reading spot.
The separate kitchen looks out over the trees and duck ponds and includes oven and stove top, microwave, large upside down fridge/freezer.
The lounge is a large open plan space with open fire and TV and DVD, comfy sofas. The dining area (table seating for 4-6) opens to the large rear tree-top deck. Plenty of dvds, books, magazines and games are provided.
There is a 2nd beach shower for a rinse off after a day at the beach, a separate laundry, outdoor furniture on both decks, hooded gas bar-b-que, convenient undercover parking for 2 cars and a great large concreted driveway-play area for kids on bikes/scooters and ball games!
You can fall straight into the surf from the beach path opposite, swim at patrolled Macmasters Beach and its beautiful rockpools, have a quiet paddle at Cockrone Lagoon (a 2 min stroll), enjoy breakfast at the many beach-side cafes along the beach at Macs and Copa beaches, surf the perfect wave breaks, explore the rockpools, choose a spot anywhere along the beach for beach fishing - or just do all of them!
*Boogie boards and soft surf boards are available for hire 3 mins up the beach at the Copa shops.
