Come to the Cottage for a wonderful warm get away...

The Cottage has two bedrooms, large ktichen, lounge and dining, bathroom and laundry. All our furnishings are modern and clean. Our crockery is "Maxwells" and all the wine and champagne glasses are new and clean. There are games to use, videos to watch or just gaze out the windows at the birds, the ocean or the bush. It has a great aspect looking straight out to the Pacific with nothing but a reserve between you and the ocean. The yard is secure. It can accommodate four adults - the master bedroom has a queen size bed (Electric blanket), the second bedroom is able to take 2 + 1 using the 'trio bed'. Family of five would be very well accommodated. Should you require use of the Porta Cot please let me know in advance of your stay.

There is a large deck looking out to the reserve and ocean which is relaxing all year round and a great rocky cove at the bottom of the reserve for explorers. There are great fishing spots and walks.

The Cottage is walking distance (less than 10 minutes) to either Garden Bay (north) or Malua Bay beach and great shops and restaurants (south).

The house is available for weekly rental and weekend getaways.

For weekly rentals Saturday to Saturday is preferred and is negotiable during off season.

For weekend rentals arrival time is from 2pm Friday and departure is 11am Sunday. Times are negotiable depending on bookings.

We welcome well behaved dogs.

We do not supply linen or towels unless prior arrangements are made and confirmed. There would be an extra charge for this service.

Malua Bay is two hours drive from Canberra - approximately 15 minutes south of Batemans Bay. From Sydney is it is approximately four hours south.

Things to see and do from The Cottage

Our Cottage has a beautiful aspect looking out to the Pacific with nothing except a great nature reserve between the house and the water. The Cottage sits above a great rocky cove for the skin divers, walkers and explorers.

Easy walking distance (5 mins) from the Cottage leads you to the lovely Malua Bay Village which has everything you need - grocery shop, liquor shop, butcher shop, chemist, newsagency, restaurant and the best fish and chips shop. A little further on is the Malua Bay Bowling and Recreation Club - great for fun, great dinners and music. The Club provides a bus to pick you up and/or drop you home. Malua Bay Beach is patrolled during the summer and offers great surfing and amenities. Full toilet/shower blocks; beaut park for all ages is located on the grass area of the beach. Regular monthly markets are not to be missed. To the north of the Cottage is Garden Bay Beach (5 mins walk) which is great for families, skin diving, kayaking and snorkelling. Mckenzies Beach is a quick car trip (5mins) south which is also great fun and great surfing. Heading north will take you to Batehaven. A great spot for kayaking hire and surfing. Great shopping here too. Heading south from Malua leads through lovely villages such as Mossy Point, Broulee - great for surfing and swimming, Mogo - famous for its zoo and excellent street shopping. Further on is Moruya which has great markets every Saturday. Lots of old world charm and wonderful rivers to be explored.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An older cottage, but well-maintained and clean. We enjoyed our stay there. Although it got quite hot and stuffy in the living room, the fans and the sea breeze helped to cool down the room. The pantry and kitchen were well stocked. The best part of the house is the back balcony and the huge backyard which opens out onto a grassy reserve with beautiful views of the water. Although our Dutch Shepherd stayed inside with us most of the time, she also liked the backyard and reserve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WELL EQUIPPED SOUTH COAST HOLIDAY HOME Though the sofa is well past its used by date everything else at the cottage by the cove is in good condition. We took our Jack Russell cross, Miss Daisy, and she had a ball. A lot of the beaches around the Bateman's Bay area are very dog friendly.We are very grateful that places are available so dogs are able to enjoy a holiday as well as their human owners.The house is suitable for a cosy getaway for 2 and would be great for a couple with a small family. The kitchen is very well equipped and the massive deck is great for that relaxing BBQ. Terrific hot water service. A very nice little beach is just down the road and the cliff walk has some dramatic scenery though the trees to the ocean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good central position handy to beaches and shops. Property is in need of upgrading in certain areas, including attention to detail in routine cleaning. In fairness to the owner these issues have been discussed and she was responsive to my observations.
