Relax in this enchanting mud brick cottage, cut deep into a lime stone hill, surrounded by parkland, set amongst the natural beauty of its coastal location.

A sustainable home built in the 70's, it’s here you will discover a beautiful mixture of natural and recycled materials from rammed earth walls, to exposed wooden beams, to vintage Telecom Phone booth doors.

On a winter's night, indulge in a book, in-front of the pot belly fire, where the smell of soup simmers and the sound of the tea pot whistles. The unique handmade lights, switched by a pull cord creates an array of moods, from the orange Indian bracelet pendants draped by the fire place, to the wagon wheel light suspended above the 10 seater canteen dinner table.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and TV/DVD, adjoined by a rumpus room featuring a day bed, TV/DVD, where the kids can retreat too. Further down the hall, opposite the laundry, you'll discover another bedroom with hand-made Queen Size Bunk Beds.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a split system and adjoins a stylishly furnished open plan living and dining area. The roof conceals a loft ladder, which pulls down to reveal a fourth white ambient bedroom, featuring a queen size bed and TV/DVD.

A 3min stroll will lead you to Ocean Grove's hidden treasure, Bluewaters Lake. A further 10min walk and you will come across many local attractions in Ocean Grove, including the Surf Beach, River, Golf Course and the Main Street filled with award winning cafés and restaurants. Bikes and boogie boards are supplied, so peddle your way around, catch a wave, stumble on a winery or two, visit the local berry farms. Who knows what you'll discover.

After a day of exploring the endless attractions, come back and fire up the Pizza Oven, using seasonal fresh herbs from the garden, playing bocce, all a whilst the kids explore the playground. Or simply relax in the hammock listening to the birds and the sounds of the waves.

Please note that there is a gradual decline from the road side to the house, comprising of about 40 steps. It is not recommended for people who will struggle to walk up and down stairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from drift away cottage This was a beautiful place to stay with 3 kids. They were entertained the whole time with games, the wii and the outside area. The pizza oven was a huge hit for everyone. It was great having all the daily accesseries like dishwashing liquid, pots pans, spices ext. The kids loved the park which was only out the back door and rolling down the hills kept them busy for ages. We cant wait to come back again.
