The holiday feel is immediate - the ocean views, the sea breeze, the bird sounds create a wonderful relaxed ambiance in this small community. Previously the Congo Fire Shed, the property has been tastefully renovated into a modern, open plan two and a half bedroom home. The house is furnished with bright and fun retro furnishings, sourced from second hand shops and garage sales and lovingly restored. The beach is an easy two-minute stroll away, and a bench at the top of the property allows you to enjoy views south across Congo beach with Montague Island in the distance. The bench is perfect for whale watching, morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

Well-behaved dogs are most welcome - please advise on booking. Dogs can enjoy the beach with you during certain hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful getaway We loved Congo, we knew of it but had never stayed there and absolutely loved the quiet, old fashioned seaside feel of this lovely spot. No shops, no traffic, just the sound of the cicadas, the birds and the sea. The sparkling tidal creek is a joy, and the park was a great place to watch all the craft come around the bend, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and an enormous inflatable Toucan. Everyone in Congo is pretty laid back, and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The fish, birdlife and octopus were constantly entertaining. We loved being able to amble down to the creek whenever we needed a dip -it's now our favourite place to swim on the whole coast. The house was spacious and airy with a fantastic terraced native garden that not only provides great privacy from the street but also was full of wattle birds, lizards, butterflies, and it was a daily pleasure to enjoy the breezes and nature with a cup of tea or a book. We even saw a young sea eagle! Congo Beach is lovely in the evening and the Bingie Dreaming Track is a great explore - thank Jodie for the wonderful Eurobodalla Indigenous History report. It was a mine of fascinating information about all the place names and local history. We really enjoyed getting to know more about a part of the world we have been visiting for years with much ignorance of the history of its indigenous inhabitants. As you can see we had a lovely holiday, relaxed and comfortable, for which we are very grateful. Thank you Jodie and the Old Congo Fireshed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil and quiet Enjoyed the sound of the surf and looking at the stars from the upstairs bedroom. Bower birds and banksias everywhere; the coastal walk is worth it. Patrolled surf at nearby Moruya Heads

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish the stay was longer Great stay and I wish we had found this earlier. Nice and quiet and close to some good safe fishing spots for the kids. Everything was very clean and serviceable as we walked in. I just wish our geriatric dog was more mobile as it is a very hilly location but apart from that it was a relaxing and enjoyable break.
