Perfect location for MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS!!!
Enjoy waking up to the sound of kookaburras, watch the endless bird life from your private verandah, relax in the tranquility of our semi-rural haven just 15 mins by car from the surf/restaurants in Manly Beach and 40 mins by bus/car to the centre of Sydney.
Perfect for a couple but also plenty of room for two couples or a family of four. One queen bedroom and one twin room are available (twin beds can be joined to make another double). Two car parking spaces are provided for the occupants of "Kookaburra Cabin".
You will see water dragons sunbathing on the lawn, kookaburras, fairy wrens, honey eaters, owls, cockatoos, our chickens and ducks roaming freely around the property, our two friendly dogs, our two sheep and of course the inquisitive horse who lives in the paddock next door.
** Please do not request to bring your own pets as our chickens and ducks roam freely and we cannot risk introducing animals who are not used to their constant presence. Too much temptation to chase/catch them! **
