The Bothy is very environmentally friendly and energy efficient home with it's own:
*Water supply (water tanks) and bore water for the garden and toilets
*The sewerage is a septic tank with the run off watering the garden
*The solar panels make more electricity than is used and so puts electricity back into the grid
*The new kitchen and floors are bamboo which is a fast growing environmentally friendly timber
*The lighting is low energy
*The shower roses are water efficient but large and deliver a firm good water rate
*The house is a northerly aspect with lots of natural light
*The walls and ceilings are well insulated to help with heating and cooling
Apart from spending the day on the beach or explore the amazing coastal areas, one can spend the heat of the day laying on the grass under the shady trees or on the large balcony.
In contrast the winter days can be spent huddled in front of the wood fire. Reverse cycle air conditioner / heater.
All modern appliances are provided, such as a large plasma TV, DVD, video & CD players and iPad docking station.
On returning from the beach, sandy and salty, guests can enjoy washing off with the twin outside hot shower.

If you’re heading to Sandy Point it’s because you love the beach. The ocean beach is patrolled by surf life savers during summer and offers acres of sand for beachside play and relaxation. Take your surf board or swimmers and spend countless summer hours enjoying the sun and water. Wilsons Promontory offers a scenic backdrop to your Sandy Point beach stay. The recently constructed, and imposing, Waratah Beach Surf Life Saving Club building is fully-licensed and open at selected times.
A couple of minutes away from Sandy Point, Shallow Inlet provides safe swimming options for kids. It’s also one of the world’s top places for wind and kite surfing. Indeed a world speed record was set here by a sailing craft. Keen fishers should drop a line here as well: King George Whiting, Flathead, Trevally and Australian Salmon have all been caught here at times. Boats can also be from the western beach. Climb the sand dunes for some stunning vistas of the region and towards Wilsons Promontory. There are also barbecue and picnic facilities.
As with all Prom Country towns other attractions, such as Wilsons Promontory, are down the road. You can buy almost everything you’ll need for your stay at Sandy Point general store or head to Foster or Leongatha to stock up on supplies. For a meal go to the Sandy Point café.
