Description

'Mingalar' means ‘welcome’ and ‘place of peace and serenity' in Pail, the language of Buddhism. When you arrive, you will feel welcome too. Mingalar is the ideal summer holiday destination. 2 minutes from the beach - let the kids run wild. Spend the evening by the outside fire.

As seen on Channel 9's 'When love comes to town'. Hosted by The Farmer Wants A Wife's Natalie Gruzlewski.... 12 single city girls travel the country in a bus, moving from town to town until they find their man and leave the bus... One of the country boys hosted his girl at Mingalar at The Honeysuckles. They loved it and you can too.

Whether you are after an active holiday of surfing, swimming, golf, and bushwalking, or a relaxed chill out doing very little, Mingalar in the small hamlet of The Honeysuckles is the place to do it.

300 metres from the spectacular 90 Mile Beach, Mingalar is built in sympathy with the Banksia landscape.

This unusual looking home is different The high cathedral ceilings and intersecting arches are complimented by natural light from large windows. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living, large outside decking...

The large open living area is the hub of the home. Sun soaked in the winter courtesy of full north facing windows, and cosy even without the fire going. The living area has a massive dining table, comfortable leather couches, reverse cycle heating and air conditioning, large 46” 3D HD TV with Blu-ray home entertainment system.

Sleep comfortably and wake up to the sound of the native birds and the ocean. Experience what it's like to have no neighbours The master bedroom has a queen bed, full en-suite bathroom, and private deck.

The second bedroom has queen bed. Third bedroom has two solid and comfortable single beds.

The well-appointed kitchen includes European oven and cook top, microwave and dishwasher.

There are games and jigsaws in the cupboards for the odd rainy day.

Large sun drenched north-facing decking area, outdoor table, and four-burner BBQ for fabulous long lunches.

Fully fenced large back yard for kids. Well-behaved four legged friends welcome too - please discuss with owner in advance.

It’s a rural area. Expect to see echidnas and wombats. There’s lots of kangaroos in the area. We have even had a resident emu and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins off the beach.

We have welcomed newcomers to the area by providing transitional housing until they found something permanent. Get in touch via the enquiry form if you would like to explore staying at Mingalar for an extended period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Space Mingalar was exactly what we needed. A quiet, laid back, cosy home away from home where we could spread out or hang out. We will definitely stay here again when we return and Corrine and her team went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as easy as we wanted it to be. We really appreciated the fantastic customer service. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coastal Getaway Very nice house with all the services you would need, very clean and comfortable. We loved the outdoor fire pit our favourite feature by far!!! Not as private as we expected neighbours on all sides except one, but still peaceful for the time of year. My only recommendation would be some blinds in the lounge as people walk past quite frequently, sort of had to make sure I didn't terrify the poor people by being inappropriately attired - haha. Thanks for having us Corrinne, you were a pleasure to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Retreat We wanted a place to stay and take our dogs with us to enjoy. This is hands down a brilliant house and property. The location is superb, literally a couple of hundred meters to the beach. A short drive to the town of Sale which is buzzing with great cafes. Our dogs could not get enough of their adventure on the property and locations near by. We will be back for sure and suffice to say dont want to recommend this place to anyone just so we can get the dates we want. However, our experience at this place is so good, you want to share it. So do yourself a favour and get on down, you won't be disappointed.
