"Breakfast with the parrots, a sundowner with a pair of frogmouths, and dinner with the possums".
**Please note that 24 hours notice is required for booking. The cottage is unsuitable for children or pets **
Forest Cottage is a perfect romantic retreats for couples to sample country living by the coast. Just one and a half hours from Melbourne, it is located on a spacious two acre property, surrounded by gum trees and natural bushland, and features an abundance of native bird life (list available on request). You will be able to relax in comfort!
The cedar studio, set amongst gardens, shares its off street parking with the main residence. The queen sized bed comes with a thick lambs wool underlay and cotton sheets beneath a downy doona. The ensuite bathroom has a shower, towels, and complementary toiletries are provided. Facilities include TV with DVD, refrigerator, microwave, double hotplate, mini toaster oven, electric skillet, rice cooker, kettle, crockery, cook ware, and cutlery. Plunger coffee, a variety of teas, milk, and a welcome treat are provided for your pleasure. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let me know. LPG gas heating and an electric blanket ensure your comfort in the cooler months. The shady verandas and a ceiling fan keep the cottage cool in the summer.
As well as the native animals on our property, such as possums, echidnas, and parrots we have two much loved cats. As our home is separated from the cottage by only gardens and woodland, we respectfully, but firmly, ask you to leave your own pets at home.
From the cosiness of your cottage a myriad of possibilities awaits you. The world class surfing venue of Bells Beach is a 15 minute walk away. Visit the pristine sands or walk the Surf Coast trails that extend for miles along our spectacular coastline. Only minutes away by car, Jan Juc, Torquay, and Point Addis have golden beaches boasting magnificent scenery and often perfect waves! Many other activities are close at hand, including fine dining, wineries, golf courses where kangaroos share the fairways with the locals, the Surf Museum, and much, much more!
