Nice hideaway
Great bush cabin, self contained, secluded enough and private, nice pool, lovely hosts, good water pressure and easy walk to One Mile Beach or quick drive if you have a tent or chairs. So close to shopping, eateries, attractions and other beaches. We were pleasantly surprised to discover camel rides on nearby Birubi Beach and it was amazing costing AUD $30 adults and 25 for children for around 20 minutes, no booking, just show up starts from 10am. Birdsong and welcome visits by the friendly magpies and night visits by the possums, only thing is the bed was quite hard and only a 2 seater couch which we found uncomfortable. Of course there's those pesky mosquitoes, but you are in a bush setting so that's expected but nothing that a spray of Mortein can't fix.
