Green Cottage is a gorgeous, original Patonga Cottage beautifully kitted out with all the comforts of home and everything you need for a relaxing family holiday. Cool and breezy in summer (with high quality pedestal fans) and warm and cozy in winter (with wonderful child-safe wood burning stove and electric blankets). It is located right on the creek (with road access) and has its own private jetty.
Sit on the wide verandah and watch the pelicans on the jetty, enjoy a paddle up the creek into the pristine national park, hunt for soldier crabs on the sand by the creek, close your eyes and listen to the parrots in the trees, stroll down to the beautiful Patonga beach and float on your back through the river mouth, beach comb on the deserted beach, fish from the private jetty, hike along the large number of trails in the area, eat fish and chips at the popular fish & chip shop, play cricket in the reserve out front, relax in the hammock, read a book or play a boardgame, have a barbeque and watch the sun go down over the mangroves...
So many options - all of them relaxing!
Green Cottage facilities
The main cottage sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms (1 with queen bed, other with bunk and trundle). It has a newly renovated bathroom (2014), well equipped modernised kitchen plus dining room and lounge furnished with great retro gems. The cottage is surrounded on 2 sides by a broad, well shaded verandah with couches, chairs, barbeque and outdoor dining table.
In addition there is a renovated (2011) sleep-out for 2 additional people (queen bed) plus an outside toilet and bathroom/laundry (with shower and bath).
The cottage is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, and small flatscreen TV and DVD player. Please note, there is no TV reception or WIFI at Green Cottage, and patchy mobile phone coverage. This is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for an unplugged holiday!
Green Cottage is a paradise both indoors and outdoors for children. It is well stocked with great children's toys, books, DVDs/VCDs and boardgames. The securely fenced garden has a tyre swing, trampoline and plenty of outdoor play toys/equipment to enjoy. To make the most of the beach location there are kayaks and life jackets (child and adult sizes) available plus beach toys and boogie boards.
