In our climate, outdoor living in a major thing. In our renovation we have concentrated on that and have thus opened up upstairs and made it an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining which open up with sliding stacker doors onto the front and back decks. These decks face east and west, and give you the HUGE benefit of picking and choosing according to the weather. In summer the prevailing sea breeze (nor-east) comes straight off the ocean and sends a beautiful breeze throughout our house and the east facing deck. This breeze also flows straight through the main bedroom which opens onto the deck. In cooler months or in the mornings you can utilise the front deck which has views over the mountains which are only a few kilometres from our house.
Up stairs we have a brand new kitchen which is fully equipped with dishwasher, 6 gas burner chef style 900mm stove & oven and brand new Bosch fridge. Also upstairs are is a small lounge area with flat-screen TV, three bedrooms, two with queen beds and one is a babies room (with cot and change table). The main bedroom has a flat-screen TV. There is also a full bathroom (shower & bath) with separate toilet. We are well equipped with baby items and toys and welcome families with children to our home.
Downstairs there is a large open plan lounge room with home theatre & bar. There is a bedroom with a queen bed and a large bathroom/laundry, with washing machine and dryer. The loungeroom and bathroom both have direct access to the fully enclosed backyard and large undercover paved BBQ/patio area. There is also an office which contains a double futon bed, which we could make available if requested. Use of high-speed wifi available.
We have surfboards, fishing rods and mountain bikes available for your use. Auto exchange is preferable, as we have a 5 seater VW Amarok (4WD) Dual Cab utility that can be available for you during your stay at our home.
We are located three kilometres from mountain ranges with excellent hiking tracks. The "Coffs Coast" is the closest place on the east coast of Australia where the mountains actually meet the sea.
5 minutes drive (or 30 minute walk along the beach) to the town of Woolgoolga, with shops, restaurants, a gym, pub and more beaches. Twenty minutes drive to Coffs Harbour, a town of 70,000 people, with loads of pubs, clubs, restaurants, gyms, sports activities and more beaches.
The Coffs Coasts boasts excellent fishing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, four wheel driving and camping. World renowned Bonville International Golf Club only thirty minutes drive and World Heritage Rain Forests of Dorrigo less than one hour away.
The area is a sub-tropical climate, with water temperatures averaging 24 degree C (75 degrees F.). It is the southern most point of the Great Barrier Reef and offers excellent scuba diving/snorkelling through the Solitary Islands Marine Park.
