This Cabine is ideally suited for a couple looking for a Romantic getaway or a quiet, peaceful hideaway or an activity-filled time out on the water. Being only a few metres from the water's edge of the St. George's Basin, there are superb water views as you literally have a bird's-eye view of native water birds, fish jumping out of the water, passing kangaroos, ducks, the odd echidna passing through and a resident bandicoot.
Cabine Algarve was named for the province in Portugal from which one of the owners originated. So the decor of the 'Cabine' displays some mementos from the Algarve.
The 'Cabine' features a cosy bedroom with a comfortable double bed and robes; the bathroom is supplied with white plush towels; a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, electric cooktop and wall oven; air-conditioning in the combined dining and living area with TV and DVD player. There is also a modest selection of books, magazines, games and jigsaw puzzles.
A barbeque is provided on the rear patio by the water's edge and dining 'Al Fresco' is under cover.
We can now offer our guests the use of a two person kayak, to enjoy a lazy paddle around St. Georges Basin or a quiet fishing expedition to catch fresh fish for your dinner.
If you bring your own boat - there is also a mooring available to anchor a boat of 5 metres in length or less.
For the Romantic: Complimentary wine and chocolates for those booking a 2 night stay or longer. The 'Cabine' also has basic tea and coffee supplies.
Parking is provided on site but may not be available adjacent to the Cabine in inclement weather.

However, parking is also available some 20 metres from the Cabine on the property so please allow for a walk of this distance down a sloping path.
