Description

If you love camping and love the bush, but want comfort as well without the colourbond fence

- The shack is for you

The Bower Bird Shack is a cosy apartment built from new and recycled materials and with an ecologically sound waterless toilet. It is nestled in the bush near the popular Sharkey's and Coledale Beaches. It is up and away from the blustery nor-easters that come through in a cool, bush setting. So relaxing and private, yet close to shops, restaurants, clubs, cafes and of course, beaches.

From the comfortable queen bed, you may see, if you are quiet enough, a Bower Bird hopping about its business in the green foliage. There is also single bunk beds in the generous sized family bedroom and a sofa bed in the sitting area.

The Bower Bird Shack is a hidden treasure. It has the comforts of a queen size bed with a top quality latex mattress. The family bedroom is separated from the rest of the apartment with a door, it has 1 queen and a set of single bunk beds in the bedroom with fantastic views out the large bedroom windows into the natural bush garden.

A fully equipped kitchen quaint early 80's style in great shape with stove top, oven and grill. The kitchen and lounge are one cosy space, with a raised bench to enjoy a coffee and the peaceful bush.

The bathroom is equipped with a separate shower with a large rain shower head and separate bath. A unique feature of the shack is its ecologically sound waterless toilet. This is a state of the art Canadian designed composting toilet system certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 41.

You will find, however, that you want to spend most of your time outdoors. The outdoor area has a dining table under the trees and is pleasantly private.

If you love the relaxed atmosphere of camping, but want a comfortable bed - This is for you

Enjoy privacy, bush and why not have a campfire at night

There is a barbecue with outside lighting

PETS are welcome at The Bower Bird Shack

.

Please Note, The property is NOT FENCED. Therefore, all pets are required to be on a lead or controlled at all times when on the property. For many pets, this is o.k. as we have a long lead available, and they are happily tired after great big runs on the local leash-free Sharkey's Beach. Pet-sitting is available by arrangement when suitable, however, pets are not to be left in accommodation unsupervised.

CHILDREN are also welcomed at The Bower Bird Shack.

Please Note, however: The property is NOT FENCED. There are potential hazards for unsupervised children as you would expect in a bush setting adjacent to a furniture workshop and with creek nearby. The bower bird shack is nestled into the Illawarra escarpment with fantastic bird life, water dragons and you may hear the resident wallaby thump past at night or dawn

Please note: there is NO TV RECEPTION at the shack. We supply a television and DVD player, with a selection of DVDs, novels and magazines

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Getaway This little hideaway was exactly as we had hoped: quiet, beautiful, close to beaches and equip with all the necessities. Perfect for our short getaway with our pup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding location and setting The 'Bower Bird Shack' is a slice of heaven with a beautiful rainforest setting that is so peaceful... yet 1 minute to the beach, shops, train and all other conveniences. Highly recommend this property for a couple or family of 4 as it offers great affordability in a superb location. Carol and Brad are wonderful hosts and we will be back to Coledale again... Regards Frank & Kerri

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lawn being mowed at 7am. Is not peaceful. We were happy with the stay but I was dumbfounded that on our last morning we were woken by the lawn being mowed right outside before 7am. This is taking the mickey, No apology just a huff from the kid when I asked what he is doing as we where asleep. Most unprofessional plus I doubt under the bed has been vacuumed in a year or two

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect getaway We loved our stay at the Coalface. The location is fantastic for those who wish to feel like they're away from it all, yet it's near enough to anything you will need. The unit is clean and has everything. The views were fantastic, as was the garden. We and our chihuahua will be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Break on the Coast We had a lovely stay. Compact property with everything that was required, the breakfast supplies were great. Walking distance to a good dog beach with really good amenities. The owners were very helpful during the booking and in regards to actually locating the property on arrival. Plenty to see and do in the local area. The bush setting was a nice change though the ability to shut curtains and block light out with small children would have been useful.
