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.

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

Check-in: 2 pm

Check-out: 10 am

South Durras Escape is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent home away from home Excellent location. It was the best place to get away from the busy life of the city and to relax to a quiet location. It was also amazing to see the wildlife in the mornings hanging around whilst having our coffee. Great Facilities, Excellent Hosts would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of staying down the south coast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, Comfy house... Great secluded location but still walking distance to the beach. We shared breakfast on the deck with King Parrotts and enjoyed the comfy lounges in the arvo. Lovely feel and ammenities with a great kitchen. The owner were amazing to deal with and were more than accommodating with every request and made the stay enev easier. Will be back every year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My partner, Mother and I certainly enjoyed our stay at South Durras. We especially loved the picturesque setting amongst the bushlands and proximity to the beach. Though it was in the cooler period, we still enjoyed the verandah and watched the local beautiful birdlife visit daily for a feed. We were even treated to a special visit from the local kangaroos one morning. This accommodation is a short drive from Batemabn's Bay and I'm glas we chose this scerence setting! The accommodation was perfect for our needs: clean, spacious and modern. Thank you for this lovely setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My spouse and i have stayed at Durras Tree House multiple times now - and every time is as restful and lovely as the previous. The house and its facilities are just perfect - cozy but spacious, simple but elegant. Strolling to the beaches is a gorgeous event to start with, but the beaches are spectacular. What paradise to stay in such comfortable accommodation and yet right in the middle of Australia's natural beauty.
