Do you wish for a stay at the beach without the rush of the crowds? Welcome to Long Beach.
Our home is set only 130 steps from the beautiful Cullendulla Nature Reserve, and the short path to Long Beach. There are no roads to cross. There is no need to load up the car for your day to the beach - here, you can amble down in the morning, stroll back for lunch, have a siesta, then enjoy a lazy afternoon back on the sand. And if you forgot something, that's ok, just duck back up to the house - it's that close!
At 130 steps you will find a wealth of wildlife right on your doorstep. Kangaroos graze on the front lawn, birds nest in the abundance of native trees and dolphins often skim the lapping waves of the beach.
Directly adjacent our home is a small children's play ground, perfect to entertain the little ones if they have had enough sand between their toes.
Long Beach is a fabulous family beach that we have been bringing our children to for many years. The gentler waves are perfect for those younger members of the family, but there are also perfect days for the older kids - grandparents included - who like to try their hand at Boogie Boarding.
While Long Beach has a public end, easily accessed by car, your home-away-from-home is set at the private end, where it is mostly used by holiday makers such as yourself or the friendly locals.
A short drive around the corner from Long Beach is Maloney's Beach where you can find a fabulous little french coffee shop with fabulous cakes, drinks and takeaway food.
If you crave some interaction with other holiday makers, we have compiled a "welcome" pack with some guides on local attractions in Batemans Bay, that is no more than 10 minutes away.
Welcome to our home.
Our beach home offers you the serenity you crave on a holiday, with all the conveniences that you can't do without.
Architecturally designed, our home is north facing with high ceilings to optimise the sunlight.
The open plan living area offers a r/c air conditioner, two leather lounges, a TV and DVD unit, as well as Apple docking sound system. Soft furnishings and original art will make you feel right at home. You will find a good selection of board games for the family to enjoy, or for the avid reader, a small well stocked book case that everyone is welcome to use.
Dining is set for 4.
The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, oven, dishwasher and (the all important) coffee/hot chocolate machine (Aldi). Tea and Coffee is complimentary, however if you run out of Pods, or prefer a different flavour, the local Aldi is a short drive into Batemans Bay.
Speaking of groceries: the pantry is large enough that you can do one big shop and never return to the grocery store again.
Next to the kitchen is a blackboard wall where we encourage everyone to share their creativity - this is handy for the wee ones to use while food preparation is underway.
The living area opens out onto a small courtyard that contains a Webber Q for the barbecue chef in the family, with an outdoor dining area.
We offer two bedrooms - one Queen, and two singles. The singles room also has ample of space to pull out the foldaway bed if you have a fifth member of your family, or for teens to lounge around away from the oldies.
The all in one bathroom offers a shower over a spa bath - please note this for any family members with mobility issues. The bathroom shares a door to the laundry, which makes it easy when stepping out of those sandy swimmers.
The laundry offers a washing machine and ironing facilities if required.
PLEASE NOTE: Bedding and Linen is not provided.
Did we say pet?!
Yes, we did. If you have a well behaved dog that is perfectly house trained, then let us know because we are dog people.
So what is on offer for your beloved dog?
- There is a small yard to accommodate your beloved pet.
- They are allowed inside, but please not on the furniture.
- A bond to bring your pet will apply, but have a chat with us to work out the details.
Have you ever taken your dog in the waves - the beach is a playground for dogs and owners, and there is nothing happier than a happy dog.
Long Beach have time zones for the dogs on the beach, so please note the signs.
- In Winter dogs are allowed off lead (if well behaved) all day long.
- In Summer, dogs are allowed on the beach before 9am, and after 5pm.
We are eager to make your stay an enjoyable one. Your feedback is always welcome.
