Description

Here you have it all. A stunning contemporary make-over with beaches nearby. It's 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.

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.

Location

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

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.

Upper Level
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.

Lower Level
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.

Accommodation rates
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.

During NSW and ACT long weekends we have a three-night minimum stay.

All beds are provided with linen, mattress protectors, high quality doonas and pillows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dream home away from home! We stayed for two nights in August, 2015. Peaceful and perfect location. Still however close to main attractions in Batemans Bay. We were lucky to get great weather in the middle of winter. Close to corner shop and beach was perfect! Only downside for us, was the rattling air conditioner however we didn't let it affect our stay. Was very enjoyable, and will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a pleasant stay! Great location, pet friendly, quiet, nearby dog-friendly beach and good adventure! We stayed there for 2 nights with our dog and we enjoyed so much. The weather was very good and we had so much fun with our dog at the dog-friendly beach, 24 hour access, unleashed. Batemans Bay was closeby, so it was very easy for us to shop around as well. Such a memorable holiday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice property in a great location The house is well located in South Durras and within close proximity of all the main attractions. The house itself is nice with large living spaces and a kitchen well-stocked with cooking utensils. The rooms and beds are comfortable. The BBQ on the balcony is good for entertaining purposes. A house well worth staying at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We pretty much visit every year! We've visited in 2012, 2013 and 2015 and will keep going as long as we're allowed! It's wonderful and comfortable, the dog beach is beautiful and it feels like we have our own private beach. We've never met Erik and Narelle but they feel like warm and generous hosts. The doggies and the humans always have a great time.
