This is the Lodge, a hand-crafted thing of beauty less than 150 m to the beach. You've not seen anything like it, re-purposed antique church doors and stained glass windows, light and fresh sea breezes, and ocean views during your breakfast on the Juliet balcony, after your sleep under cotton sheets on a comfortable mattress. A protected reserve across the street is a bird-watchers paradise guaranteed to hear the laugh of several kookaburra, a great cafe just up the street if you can't be bothered cooking despite the well-equipped kitchen with everything you might need and another excellent cafe a bit further walk or a short drive away for a fancier dinner out. A picturesque, statuesque garden in the back with soaking tub, and of course the quiet, great surf of North Beach awaits, with its peaceful tide pools to explore and a great meditation cove at the headland. Through the garden, with solar powered orbs and a pond with waterfall near the barbie, is the Retreat which may be rented separately or together, see additional listings.
