A traditional South Coast beach house with bonus river views and plenty of retro charm. There's an old bus for the kids to hangout and a great deck for the adults. Linen is included along with all the basics you need for a great beach break or a getaway from city life.
Located in a quiet cul de sac with plenty of trees and greenery around, Raglan Cottage is secluded, peaceful and backs onto Curley's Bay the river. You are 5 minutes, 500 metres walk from Culburra Beach.This is a great spot for your family holiday or for couples and small groups. And you can bring your pets, though noting that the backyard is not fully fenced. The beach is also dog friendly. You can walk or drive to the village shops and cafes and there's a Woolworths supermarket in Culburra so you don't have to bring food from home. Birds are abundant and we regularly see kookaburras, rosellas and wading birds in the yard.
Enjoy the rear screened deck/ entertaining area with dining table and 6 burner barbecue and looks out over the water; a perfect spot to watch the sunset on those hot summer nights. Wake up to river views from the king and queen bedrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, electric oven and microwave, plates, glasses, cutlery, pots,coffee plunger, teapot etc. The pantry has some basic supplies such as tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, cooking oil, herbs & spices, wrap.
The bathroom has a shower over the bath, toilet, hand basin and bathroom basics such as soap, some toilet paper and a hairdryer.
The kids will enjoy entertaining themselves in the old bus parked in the backyard and set up as a chill out zone for them. There are a few boogie boards they can use at the beach.
Fans and heaters will keep you feeling comfortable. Rainy day? No problem - we have a television, DVD player and a PS3 for movies and games. There are movies to choose from and some PS3 games or you can bring your own. There are also board games and books if you want to completely indulge in life before electronics
Bring your canoes and launch them from the nearby boat ramps at Orient Point or Crookhaven Heads, or at high tide carry them down through the mangroves at the bottom of the yard too muddy for some.
