The comments made by our guests in the online guestbook speak for themselves.Please take the time to read them and you will understand how special 'Breakers' is.
The real estate catch cry of 'Position,Position'could not be more appropriate than here at 'Breakers at Bay of Fires'.This lovely three bedroom beach house sits on a beautiful and secluded 8 ACRES of Iron Barks, Pepermint gums and Flowering Gums with unequalled breathtaking vistas over the ocean and Binalong Bay Beach.
The first rays of the sun are captured by the huge, spacious hexagonal lounge room, and that sun just pours in all day long.
Breakfast on the deck with that breathtaking uninterrupted view over the beach and ocean, is a special treat. Forget about sleeping pills, the quiet crunch of the waves on the beach will have you in the land of 'Nod' in no time.
A three hundred metre, less than four minute walk from the property puts you on beautiful Binalong Bay Beach, the first in the series of beaches known as 'The Bay of Fires'.
Walk along the beach or the beautiful coastal track for ten minutes and enjoy coffee or dinner at the outstanding restaurant in Binalong. Along the way experience the sounds and smells of the beach and the unique coastal flora..........bliss! Listen to the Rosellas, Black Cockatoos and host of other birds.
If you are a fisherman(person) bring your gear, we have just the frypan for you.
This lovely three bedroom home features 2 queen beds, and 2 singles. The house is professionally maintained and all sheets towels etc. are provided in the cost. The rear of the house has a beautiful, protected in all weather deck. Relax on the sunswing and if you feel like staying in there is a large gas barbecue waiting for you.
Because of the size of this property we have been able to include much more than you would expect to find in other holiday places. A great swing is attached to one of the property Ironbarks, there's a bush cricket pitch,(not quite the M.C.G.) but the bales and wickets are there for you, tennis racquets, Volley ball area, Frisbees and other family activities are all there for you if you wish to use them.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax away from the maddening crowds and suburbia, and untangle your mind, with uninterrupted views of the beach and ocean from the front deck, the bush and ancient stately Eucalypts from the back deck. The peace and tranquility of this unique 8 ACRE property with its walks and suntraps will captivate you.
Inside is a lovely 'Heat Charm' log fire as well as a reverse cycle heat pump to keep you cosy on cool winter nights.
Minimum stay is for three nights, however a special TWO NIGHT PACKAGE IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
