Description

The Captain's Cottage is both a modern and traditional beach cottage which is especially set up for ladies, senior and extended family groups to enjoy the ultimate beach holiday. It can easily accommodate 10 people ideally including a maximum of 8 adults. One pet is also allowed.

The Cottage incorporates an authentic lighthouse which has been integrated to the side of the cottage.

The cottage is located immediately adjoining a safe sandy beach. Just a short stroll of 20 metres across the back lawn to be on the low beach sand dune and a further 30 metres across this to be on the sand at the high water mark to get your toes wet.

The cottage is located at Long Beach which is a small relatively unspoiled hamlet 5 km north of the regional centre of Batemans Bay and 3 minutes in from the Princess Highway.

The picture library shows the idyllic setting of the cottage right next to the beach as well as many of its interesting and unique features. Some of these pictures are courtesy of the "Country Collections" magazine which featured the Cottage in its publication.

The picture library also incorporates a cottage floor plan of both the ground, first floor, lighthouse and deck areas. It also shows the positioning of the 5 bedrooms and bed configuration in each.

Whether you want to relax in the outdoor heated hot tub/spa, swim, paddle in the water, fish off the beach in front of the cottage, explore the rock pools at each end of the 1km long beach,build sandcastles or just laze around in an idyllic setting and "feel the serenity", this is the place to be for that great holiday or short break in both summer and winter.

The cottage has five bedrooms comprising:

Captain's Cabin containing a double bed

Mate's Cabin contain a queen and one single bed

Crew's Quarters containing a double and one single bed

Bridge Suite containing a queen and one single bed

Lighthouse keepers bedroom in the lighthouse containing two full size single bunk beds.

The cottage has two bathrooms. One of these incorporates a large deep bath and a separate shower whilst the other is an ensuite modeled on two beach huts see photos. There is also an outside heated hot tub/spa and shower.

One pet is allowed. Both front and rear gardens are fully fenced. Details of the areas of Long Beach beach where dogs can be walked are provided in the Cottage.

The cottage has three separate living areas, each with their own TV and VCR/DVD player, two open deck areas with one having a heated 6 person spa, a screened dining area sun room at the base of the lighthouse, and a screened covered deck area. The fully fenced backyard fronting the beach is all grass and ideal for that game of cricket or badminton. The cottage even incorporates a fully equipped replica ship's bridge from a 1930's cargo ship.

During 2016 the functioning authentic vintage "Speaking Tubes" and ship's telegraph in the bridge area will finally be installed to connect to the galley down below to enable the "Captain" to order a cup of tea whilst steering the ship and give encouragement to the crew slaving away in the galley preparing food etc..

We provide boogie boards, buckets and spades, cricket set, badminton set, a DVD/Video library many with a nautical theme, puzzles, games, magazines, books, outdoor sun lounges, and even a picnic basket to take onto the beach.

Guests are required to bring their own sheets and towels. However we can also supply bed linen and bath towels on an extra hire basis if required. Costs are shown below.

If you have a trailer boat this can be easily parked in front of the cottage. Limited boat launching facilities are provided at one end of Long Beach and numerous boat ramps are provided around Batemans Bay.
