Description

NOTHING BETWEEN YOU AND THE VIEW! KAYAK, STANDUP PADDLE BOARD, WINDSURF, SURF, FISH, BOAT or just CHILL OUT and listen to the bird life in this tranquil setting on the waterfront.

Bongo's can accommodate up to 5 people and is a fully self-contained two bedroom villa set on 1.4 hectares of park-like grounds. The open plan living area with well equipped full kitchen leads out to the sun-drenched terrace. Cook dinner on the barbecue and eat at the outdoor dining setting while watching the moon rise over the lake for an economical and easy family dinner. DVDs, CDs, books and games are all provided for relaxing on the comfy lounge, whatever the weather. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has three single beds. A laundry is available on-site. Linen and towels are not provided.

The kids will have a fabulous time playing in the warm, shallow water of the lake right in front of Bongo's. Walk or paddle across the lake to Sandbar ocean beach or fish from the shore. Explore the lake and its islands by kayak, catamaran or dinghy, all available for hire from the famous Frothy Coffee Boatshed, just a 10 minute easy walk around the lake shore. If you have your own boat, it can be launched from the small boat ramp on our beach and left there for the duration of your stay (at your own risk of course). Use the on-site tennis court or kick a ball with the kids on the extensive lawns in front of Bongo's. With all this at your fingertips, you can pack away the car keys.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

SMITHS LAKE is the smallest of the Great Lakes and is popular for kayaks, standup paddle boards, fishing, sailing and wind surfing.

SMITHS LAKE is a beautiful little village set amongst rainforest. A walk to the top of the hill finds a small shopping centre with café, takeaway, supermarket, bakery and bottle shop. If the kids aren't already exhausted from swimming all day there is a children's playground on the lake's edge and a skate park near the Bowling Club to keep them busy. The Pacific Palms Bowling Club is open for lunch and dinner every day.

SANDBAR is just a few minutes drive and offers 4wd beach access (permit required), beach fishing and a 9 hole golf course, complete with resident kangaroos. CELLITOS BEACH is found at the end of a breathtaking boardwalk through sub-tropical rainforest. Enjoy the pristine surf beach or explore the extensive rock pools.

ELIZABETH, BOOMERANG and BLUEYS BEACH are all only a 5 minute drive. Elizabeth Beach is a patrolled beach great for families, while Boomerang and Bluey's are known for their surf. There are lots of restaurants and cafes in this area.

WALLIS LAKE is another option for boating enthusiasts or for just watching the sunset over the lake with a glass of your favourite drink.

SEAL ROCKS is an iconic surfing village that is only a 20 minute drive from Bongo's. Walk up to Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse to enjoy the magnificent view and find out a little of the area's history.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely propert, but needs new cutlery & crockery The position of the bungalow was magical, right opposite Smith's Lake & just 400 metres to the water. Safe to swim in & lay on a floaty. The bungalow lovely, but needed better crockery & cutlery as current stuff old & some rusty, also furniture needs to be moved to clean under. Lovely, restful & peaceful......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice spot This is a great location, plenty of green space and tennis courts. There isn't much of a beach in front of the unit, but plenty in the area. Will stay again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely location! My boyfriend and I loved our stay at bongo's beach bungalow this February 2015. The house was very close to the lake and we went kayaking across to sandbar beach and various other little spots for picnics, sunsets and relaxing days on the water everyday. It is so quiet and peaceful but with so many beaches and walks to checkout (we loved elizabeth and shelly's beaches in particular) there is no need to worry about not having enough to do! The bungalow did have an extra room with three single beds although I imagine the house may have been a squeeze for a family of 5. Make sure you take your mozzy spray to protect you from those nasty bugger and you'll have a right old time!
