Situated in a quiet, grassed cul de sac with a few minutes walk to Congo beaches, estuary and National Parks. Congo Beach Retreat is on half and acre of evolving orchards and native gardens attracting abundant birdlife.
We offer several options for your accommodation. Please see notes at end of descriptions to adjust rates for your particular needs. I will update the photos as soon as the new beds arrive!
I am not taking summer bookings at this stage because the property is on the market. If I have no interest by October I will begin to accept summer bookings. I have a wait list and you are welcome to add you name and preferred dates to the list. Apologies for the inconvenience, I am sure it is not as bad as me accepting a booking that is cancelled by new owners! Thank you for your understanding.
The home has a flexible design of East and West wings seperated by a large outdoor living area with fully equipped kitchen - The comfort and space to enjoy family and friends and still find a quiet space for peaceful relaxation.
The East wing comprises two bedrooms, a beautifully appointed bathroom with full size bath and a seperate laundry. Each room opens onto a back walkway providing privacy and airflow as part of the solar passive design.
The West wing includes a large kitchen with comfortable living area and a slow combustion wood heater. Bi-fold doors across the North East corner bring the outdoors in. The Master bedroom and ensuite is available on request, the listed rate assumes the master suite will be locked so please ask for a rates adjustment if needed.
The outdoor living area includes a fully equipped kitchen with large Heatly gas BBQ, gas hotplates, sink, electric pizza oven and grill, full size fridge and pantry. The dining table seats eight comfortably and a small lounge area completes the space.
The whole property is environmentally friendly with solar passive design, solar hot water, enviro-cycle waste water disposal system, recycling systems and ample rainwater storage.
While the finer details of interior decorating with my dream furniture and landscaping are still a work in progress we are pleased to welcome guests for a relaxing Congo break.
The two bedrooms have a sliding door in between allowing for flexible set up and french doors open onto a small North facing porch.
One room has a queen size bed and the other is the bunk room. The bunks have a double on the bottom, single on top and single trundle.
Spare matresses fit into the space, if you want to fit those extra guests in.
We are happy to meet you on arrival for your first visit and show you around. Let us know the configuration that suits you.
The West wing includes the indoor living and kitchen space. Given the large outdoor living area also provides a fully equipped kitchen and the local climate doesn't call for too much time indoors - we are happy to offer a reduced rate for the East wing and outdoor living area only, leaving the West wing locked.
The master bedroom and ensuite at the end of the West Wing is available for the use of guests upon request.
Rates in this listing do not include the master bedroom and ensuite, add $100 per night if you wish to leave the Master Bedroom and Ensuite unlocked and deduct $50 if you wish to have the whole West Wing locked, (i.e: no access to indoor kitchen and living area or master suite).
We also offer a 'private-room' rate for the off-season, for those occasions when we are home to host you, you can see our listing on airbnb.
