The Writers Retreat - Romantic Waterfront Reserve Cottage
From $250 per night for top floor only, from $300 per night for whole house.

Australian Traveller included this chic 1920 cottage in their 100 Amazing Places to visit. The SMH also recommended it "From every corner of the large open living space you can ogle at the views so close you may as well be floating on the water." Eat, Read, Love declared it to be the quintessential Australian holiday home.

Waterfront reserve position with expansive bay views, just minutes from the pristine surf beach. Two large entertaining decks, natural bush garden setting. Heritage cottage with polished original timber floor, stylishly decorated with vintage Australian furniture and modern European classics. Light filled. Open Fireplace. Extensive Libraries and two dedicated writing spaces. Walking distance to local shops and restaurants.

Recently restored and renovated, the fishing cottage has two levels. The main house, upstairs, has a large open living space with designer kitchen, a king size bedroom with adjacent study and a bathroom. The rooms all have floor to ceiling glass doors that open to the covered deck with glorious water views. The downstairs suite has a large open queen size bedroom, a light filled writing alcove and luxurious five star bathroom complete with walk in shower, oversize bathtub and heated flooring. Three vintage double glass doors open to a glorious deck made from recycled hardwood. Both levels have extensive libraries. Each level has separate access with no internal access between and offers guests complete privacy. Ideal for two couples for a relaxing weekend.
