Our cottage is in a picturesque and peaceful setting with views of the countryside and inlet. It is an escape, enjoying the comfort of a beautiful home, close to nature.
The property is suitable for families or groups of adults.
Well-behaved pets are welcome but must be controlled, respecting the native animals.
The nearby surf beach is exquisite; sand, surf and spectacular views. The inlet is suitable for activities including fishing and swimming.

The space
The property is set on 2 acres of land, the surrounds having lovely gardens and a vegetable patch where guests may take produce when in season, available and needed for their meals.
The paddocks have great spaces for exploring and games of cricket or to kick a football.
There is an outside under cover lit area with a barbecue, a fire pit (when fire restrictions are not in place) and some seating.
There is an old-fashioned swing for children, supervised by an adult.
Within the grounds, in the Manna Gums, there are often one or two koalas and at times an echidna passing through. There is much bird life and sitting quietly on the veranda or in the alfresco area, is often rewarding if you are patient and a nature lover.

The Gums has a vast amount of space to be enjoyed and the normal courtesies about noise apply as the neighbours are considerate of us too.
It is important to be very careful turning into The Gums from the inlet end of Sandy Point Road as there is a blind bend and travellers using the road may cut the corner.
