It's own private beachfront allows small boats and canoes to be launched and moored for easy access to your favourite whiting spot or to explore an island. The cabin maximises the scenic views of the bay spanning from Venus Bay past the islands to Port Kenny, with wonderful sunsets and the lights of the two towns by night.

There is a potbelly for heating and reverse cycle air conditioner for cooling with ceiling fans. A family size stove, microwave and cooking utensils, crockery and utensils are all supplied. A gas BBQ is on the outdoor entertaining area which encapsulates the stunning views and tranquility of the place, plus a common outdoor wood BBQ and campfire area. The shower and toilet have hot and cold rain water available. Melaleuca has an electric fridge/ freezer. There is a TV/DVD and stereo system with CD player for your enjoyment.

A great way to support the environment, this cabin is totally eco-friendly!
The cabin is run by alternative energy, powered by solar panels and wind generators, with backup batteries and back up generator.

The water supply is rain water, so we do ask that you be water wise and take short showers.

You are required to clean the cabin when you leave, so please be prepared to give it a decent clean, leaving it for the next visitors as you would like to find it. Alternatively, if you wish to pay for the cleaning, we can arrange this.

We also ask that you respect the tranquility and its uniqueness of the property, thus we ask that you be responsible for all family/guests in your group (i.e. excessive noise, hooning, wandering around other private dwellings on the property or not tiding up after yourself is not appreciated, thanks). Also if you are bringing a pet we ask that you be responsible pet owners and respect the wild life around.

Easy Breezy, Great Views
What a lovely relaxed stay we had & in our own neighborhood (almost) enjoyed so much we booked for another 4 days as soon as we got home again & intend to do so every 6 weeks or so from now on :)

cute shack nestled in nature
if you love nature and tranquillity, this is for you. small, fairly basic shack with gorgeous views over venus bay that is nestled in native scrub. you will have butcherbirds and shrike thrushes singing outside your window. we ate most of our meals outside on the deck, overlooking the bay. great experience for a couple who likes nature.

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay
We stayed in the property for 3 nights together with our 3 pets. The stay was great and we enjoy the property and the surrounding. Our pets loved the environment and short walk to the beach. Will surely recommend and will be back again.
