“Stars of Doona” is a comfortable furnished house located high on the Great Dividing Range west of Jervis Bay at Sassafras.

Nestled in a sheltered north-east facing valley, the property is an ideal place to relax and unwind in beautiful natural bushland surroundings.

Take in the beautiful bush views and enjoy watching and listening to birds and other animals or gaze at the distant mountain ridges from the sunny sheltered north facing deck. The architect designed home blends into the spectacular forested landscape and uses passive solar design principles to provide a comfortable environment on hot summer days as well as on and cold winter nights.

The name "Stars of Doona" was passed on from a previous owner and supposedly has a connection with Greek Mythology although we have not been able to trace the origin of this theme and suspect it might somehow have been lost in translation. Nevertheless the name is evocative of the clear starry cool nights characteristic of this wonderful place.

The Sassafras district is located at the northern gateway to the spectacular Budawangs Range which offers extensive wilderness bushwalking opportunities, spectacular scenery and a stunning variety of Australian native plants and animals.

To the north is Morton National Park and the Ettrema Wilderness with a myriad of possibilities for experienced buskwalkers.

All this within 45 minutes by car to the pristine beaches of Jervis Bay.

With accommodation for up to 6 people, “Stars of Doona” has two bedrooms two bathrooms, a cozy wood combustion heater and a large open plan living dining kitchen area with a comfortable sofa bed. You can open the sliding doors to create a wonderful indoor/outdoor living space linking the hardwood deck with the large living area.

Accommodation consists of one queen bed in one bedroom, 1 king single bed and 2 king single bunk beds in the second bedroom and one sofa bed in the main living area.

The house is powered by a combination of standalone solar and gas and is an ideal way to sample "off-grid" living in comfort.

No smoking and no pets and no parties are permitted at this property.
