Nestle in at Bowerbird Cottage Apartment - combining practical country charm with laid-back coastal style to provide a cool and comfortable sanctuary in summer yet a warming retreat for the cooler months.
Formerly named Mulberry Bush Apartment - over winter we farewelled our aged mulberry tree and have since welcomed Bowerbird Cottage Apartment as our fledgling spring arrival! The renaming has been inspired by the bowerbird's love to adorn its nest with blue objects - a theme which runs through the cottage apartment, enhancing the coastal-country feel.
Cosy for two yet comfortable for up to four people. SMOKE-FREE including INSIDE AND ALL OUTDOOR AREAS. The location and setting is perfect for experiencing the natural beauty of Hyams Beach and exploring Jervis Bay.
Situated at the top of Bayview Avenue, backing onto bushland Bowerbird Cottage Apartment is just a gentle, straight 200m stroll to the pristine soft, white sand of Hyams Beach - the jewel of Jervis Bay. The Bay is home to a pod of dolphins which can often be seen during the day from the beach.
From the apartment the local village hub of Hyams Beach Cafe and General Store is also only a gentle 5 minutes walk and the various walking trails are also easily accessible.
REST, RELAX, EXPLORE, ENJOY ......
Bowerbird Cottage Apartment invites guests of all ages - from the young to the young-at-heart - to stay, play, rest and relax. Being single-level, and on the ground floor it is easy and convenient to access - especially welcome when bringing in the luggage!
Freshly made beds beckon on arrival - ready should a power-nap be needed before heading to the beach! All bedding and bed linen is included.
Complimentary ground coffee, herbal teas - plus hot chocolate and marshmallows for those needing a treat after visiting the beach or walking the myriad of nature trails - are provided throughout the year.
While exploring the local area there is a picnic basket with picnicware and a range of bbq tools - simply select from the numerous sites available to enjoy dining in the great outdoors.
On your return popcorn is also available for the popcorn maker - quick reactions can be valuable when the kernels start popping! It makes a perfect guilt-free snack to enjoy whether sitting on the veranda watching the local birdlife, or sampling the selection of books, board and lawn games, or simply watching a dvd.
So stay and create new memories to cherish - catch up, chill out, contemplate, cosy up and connect with family, friends and loved ones. Bliss....
