Here you have it all. A stunning contemporary make-over with beaches nearby. It's Medina quality accommodation at an affordable price. Just 15 minutes from Batemans Bay, the property is on a 1000 meter block surrounded by tall coastal forest. Just sit out on the deck with a book or a glass of wine and take it all in.
It's about a 7-minute walk to Cookies Beach for fun with the kids, or otherwise it's a pleasant ten-minute stroll to the northern part of South Durras beach.
Need a break from the kids? They can have their own space downstairs while you enjoy the refinements of the upstairs level. To chill out on a hot day, flick on the reverse cycle air-con and check out the HD TV in the living room.
For your dogs, we have a large kennel set up in the dog enclosure (securely fenced up to a meter), although we are happy for small dogs to sleep inside, in their doggie baskets.
When your dogs want a change from playing in the back yard, take them for a walk along the beach. No problem! The northern section of South Durras beach, beginning 100m north of Durras Drive bridge up to the shore-bird protection zone is available off-leash 24 hours a day, all year round!
And for a break from all that relaxation, Batemans Bay, just 15 minutes away, has a good shopping centre, cinema, and some good restaurants looking out on the Clyde estuary.
From the moment you turn off the highway and start driving through the tall coastal forest, you know you have arrived somewhere special - it's the Murramarang National Park. And Durras Lake, on the left as you approach the village, is recognised as one of the few remaining pristine coastal lakes in New South Wales. Walks along the lake's shores give you a chance to experience this area.
For a change of pace, you can explore the more civilised pleasures that Durras offers. The Forest Gallery offers a fine range of local crafts, woodwork and paintings, all to be enjoyed over coffee, lunch or a morning tea, while the Muuramarang Resort has a restaurant, bar and poolside meals.
The house is located on an elevated 1000 meter block of substantially pristine coastal woodland featuring a canopy of spotted gums and an under-storey dominated by the local burrawangs or cycads.
As Durras is located in a highly sensitive ecological region, there are few signs of development. Water is provided by rainwater tanks, and we employ a septic system and greywater recycling.
This doesn't mean you need to give up your creature comforts, though. With a comprehensive make-over just completed, the property features a stylish and well-equipped kitchen, polished wood floors, an extensive deck overlooking the forest setting, and comfortable beds throughout.
The property is on two levels. You have the option to take the upper level only, or both upper and lower levels. For the sake of your privacy, if you choose to take just the upper level, we will leave the lower level unoccupied for the duration of your stay.
This is the main part of the house and it comprises two generous bedrooms with views out to the surrounding tall coastal forest. The main bedroom has a queen bed, while the second bedroom has two singles. On this level you have a designer kitchen and bathroom, a dining area, and a spacious living area with HD TV and air conditioning. Four sets of sliding doors lead out to a deck which spans the length of the living areas - the ideal place to do some barbecueing or just relax with a book and a glass of wine on one of the banana lounges.
Teenage kids or another couple? Let them have their own space downstairs. This area has separate external access, and it features one bedroom with a double and a single bed, a bathroom/laundry with shower, and separate toilet. A pleasant living room with two comfortable lounges, a TV and DVD player, looks out onto the lower garden.
The "Accommodation Rates" section below sets out the pricing for the upper level only. If you would like to take both upper and lower levels, simply add $40 per night to the rates quoted.
All beds are provided with linen, mattress protectors, high quality doonas and pillows.
