Experience the simple and casual coastal comfort of this modern beach home, situated just steps above the sand of beautiful Sunshine Cove, and just 7 minutes drive south of Batemans Bay CBD. There is not a power line, a road, a fence or a cliff to separate you from the ocean, and your own secluded beach.
My tariff is very simple. Every night of the year costs $395 plus booking fee, with a 3 night minimum all year round. No weekend premium. No peak summer holiday premium. No Easter premium. No charge for full breakfast. No charge for top quality linen. No charge for cleaning. A Refundable Damage Deposit of $500 payable with final payment 28 days prior to arrival.
Hundreds of guests have stayed over the past 15 years. Without fail, they say they love both the natural environment touching the Cove, and the home itself, with lots of surprising creature comforts. You are sure to be calmed and de-stressed, yet strangely at the same time, energised and invigorated.
Strangely I have no guest reviews after 10 years. I have 90 five star reviews on another booking platform beginning with the letter A.
The home is furnished and presented primarily as a place for 2 or 3 couples, or a family, to take a break from city or work pressures. Note.....PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
There are 3 bedrooms with 3 queen beds. Each bedroom has its own balcony, and there are spaces throughout the home where either privacy or sociability can be enjoyed.
The home is on 3 levels, so is wheelchair inaccessible. The ground floor entry level has a 2-car lock up garage with remotes, and also a fully equipped laundry.
The mid level has kitchen, dining room and living room, all with great ocean views. Also on this level are two bedrooms and a bathroom. This mid level also has 3 balconies, with the oceanfront balcony leading down 3 steps to a courtyard which has outside dining for six plus. The larger bedroom on this level is set as a versatile room.... an additional lounge when there are fewer guests, with a queen sofa bed with Tempur mattress topper for your comfort.
The third level is a master bedroom suite with expansive ocean views. There is a walk-through dressing room, full ensuite bathroom featuring a large shower with its own ocean view, a 2+ person spa, lounge area, and a small kitchen with everything for preparing early morning tea/coffee and toast.
