FacilitiesPhoto of the house, open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area and front deck.

The house is fully self-contained and is set up as a home for your convenience and comfort. The house has three bedrooms and sleeps a maximum of 8 people. ALL LINEN IS PROVIDED AND THE BEDS ARE MADE UP PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL. The queen-size bedroom has a stunning view across the bay to Cape Bridgewater. The second bedroom is a twin (2 singles) and the third contains two sets of double bunks.

The open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area also has a fabulous view. The lounge room provides comfortable, quality seating for 8 people, a sizable flat screen TV/DVD/IPOD. Reverse cycle air conditioning, ceiling fan and a wood heater set ready to light.

The kitchen is equipped with an electric stove, microwave and dishwasher. Ample pans, crockery and cutlery ensure minimal use of the dishwasher. The pantry is equipped with basic ingredients and condiments.

A sunroom equipped with a second TV/DVD adjoins the bunkroom providing a separate area for children if desired.

Two large decks (one north-facing and under cover and the other overlooking the ocean) have a gas barbecue and outdoor settings.

Shelly Beach and Bridgewater Bay can be accessed directly from the house by a path meandering through native coastal wattle and tea tree. Bridgewater Bay is popular with surfers, while Shelly Beach is favoured by rock fishermen and as its name suggests is noted for its many varieties of shells.

The freshwater Bridgewater Lakes, ideal for swimming, canoeing, sail-boarding and power-boating are five minutes away, as are many interesting geological features including the Petrified Forest and the Blow Holes.
