OCEAN FRONT BEACH HOUSE
The Palms is a light and breezy beach house located on the front row of Mystery Bay overlooking the beach and ocean. This unique unspoilt area, with its crystal clear waters and sheltered bays and rock pools is surrounded by National Park. Nestled between the bush and the sea, it offers the best of both worlds and is the perfect spot to dive into any number of activities from snorkelling and bush-walking to bird-watching or fishing and cycling and countless others. Or why not just kick back and relax to the sound of the waves, and watch the sun dancing on the water.
The Palms beach house is one of only a handful of homes right on the front row of Mystery Bay. It is flooded with sunlight and has an easy relaxing feel. There are 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms - the main bathroom has a shower, toilet and vanity, the second has a toilet and vanity. There is also a hot-water outdoor shower. The main bedroom has a queen bed and overlooks the water through a tree-framed vista. The second bedroom also has a queen bed which overlooks the back garden and through to the National Park, and the third has 2 single beds and a timber-framed double bunk. The house accommodates up to 8 people - 4 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen is well-equipped with a bar-style counter for easy entertaining and flows out to the front deck where you can watch the yachts and whales go by.
Guests have the entire house to themselves which includes a secure back garden for your pets; a hot-water outdoor shower to spray off the sand and salt after the beach; a washing machine and dryer, a BBQ, dishwasher and a wood-fire heater.
A stroll across the park opposite brings you to the beach, or to the Rotunda picnic area and lookout, a great spot to see the whales up close.
Spring is almost upon us and with it brings the humpback whales' southern migration accompanied by their playful calves. Watch them right from the deck as they literally make a big splash breaching and tail-slapping. It can be a little cool still so the fire makes for cosy evenings, but the days are lengthening as is the warmth filling the air with the scents of Spring.
Linen - All beds come with pillows and doonas including extra doonas and blankets to cuddle up with, but you will need to bring your own sheets and towels or these can be provided as an optional extra for $20/person if arranged prior.
Communications in a Remote Area: There is now mobile phone coverage, 3G and 4G, at the house for Telstra subscribers, however there is no internet connection from the house. If you're with Telstra you can use the 4G network and use a personal hotspot to connect to your computer. If you're not on Apple devices, Samsung may have a similar ability to connect to phone. There are no options if you're not with Telstra.
Pets: We understand that pets are like family, but we do not allow pets inside at all. If your pet is happy outside, there is a lovely secure back garden with eaves where your pet's bed can be placed out of the weather and where your pet can see you through the glass sliding doors. We do ask that you inform the owners if you wish to bring your pets.
