THE CONFIGURATION OF SURF MIST
Surf Mist is a two story house with plenty of room for two families and is equally suited to couples.
UPSTAIRS the lounge area spills out onto an expansive spotted gum deck that wraps around the back of the house and overlooks the ocean and bush reserve.
Protected from the southerlies but catching the north-easters, the back deck has a beautiful whitewashed Balinese daybed, well stocked with cushions and throws, perfect for laying back, snuggling in and watching the ocean with a glass of wine and a good book no matter what the weather. There is also a sturdy four burner BBQ, table and benches for alfresco dining.
The two queen bedrooms upstairs each have their own pillow-topped orthopaedic queen beds made up with hotel quality bedlinen and feather and down doonas. Linen curtains, bedside tables, lamps and ceiling fans and prints complete the spaces. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a flat screen TV with DVD player for those times you may need to get away from it all.

The kitchen is stocked with sharp knives, chopping boards, cutlery, crockery and wine glasses. The pantry is stocked with oils/vinegar, sauces, salt and pepper, tea and coffee.
In the upstairs lounge room a three seater lounge filled with feather and down is just the spot to sink into and watch some TV, a DVD from a selection of over a hundred or watch the ocean, maybe see a dolphin or two. We have recently installed a large ceiling fan in this area.
The eco smart ethanol fireplace is perfect for those cosy evenings.

We are a dog friendly but our property is not fenced. We welcome well behaved and clean flea-treated dogs into our beach house but please respect the fact that pets are not allowed in the bedrooms or on the furniture. We provide dog beds. If you do want to bring your pooch make sure to let me know so I can explain the situation further. And please remember during the summer season ticks are a problem and because we front the bush you need to make sure your dog has been treated. We provide dog beds, dog bowls and toys for your pooch. If you did need to leave your furry friend alone it is possible to contain him or her on the back deck. As long as they're not stressed at being left alone and aren't likely to claw the screen door which has recently been replaced, it's perfectly safe for them.
Please note that we do not allow cats due to owner allergies and the abundant bird life.
