Comet Bay Cottage is perfect for your family. 230m to Doddis Dog Beach. 550m to Dome.
Backyard pool and the sheltered beach for swimming (approx 400m)
BBQ balcony with ocean & estuary glimpses.
Comet Bay Cottage is located on a quiet family friendly residential street. The cottage is a quirky character property with original Jarrah wood floors, an art deco style ornamental fireplace, and a feature wood-burning range (for aesthetic flair only).
The back half of the house is more modern with a bright open kitchen leading onto a wide open balcony (complete with BBQ) which over looks the pool. There is space for both the children and the dog to run around. However, with the beach only 3 minutes away and three play parks nearby there's no shortage of space for the whole family to all go out and play.
Mary Street Marina is located one street over and is the perfect access point to launch a boat, kayak or paddle board to explore the canals and the estuary.
The centre of Mandurah is 5 minutes by car, or approximately 30 minutes walk where you will find a host of pubs, cafes, shops, the Tourist Information bureau, Dolphin Cruises, and the Mandurah cultural centre (with its Performing Arts Theatre and Cinema).
The closest supermarket is the local IGA in the Halls Head Shopping Village which also accommodates a Chinese takeaway, a Vietnamese restaurant/takeaway, a bottle shop, a spa/nail bar, a barbers and a Medical practice/ pharmacy. Around the corner at Peelwood Parade (approx 15 minutes away) is the new Centro shopping centre with the Peel Ale House (Hosts a great quiz night), Coles, Aldi, and other larger shops.
During your stay your residence will include the three bedrooms of the cottage:
*One bedroom with Queen Sized bed, Ceiling fan, built in robes; and space for the foldaway children's campbed [available by request], or space for your own portacot.
* Middle bedroom with double bed, pedestal fan, built in robe and Jarrah wood floor. This bedroom leads off the lounge and is therefore closer to the reverse air conditioning.
* Third bedroom with double bed, Ceiling fan and built in robe.
The kitchen is equipped with the basics to cook for the family. The balcony offers a family setting complete with small drinks fridge and BBQ. For rainy days or cooler summer nights we have an inside table setting for 6 people. The breakfast bar in the kitchen offers a window framed glimpse of estuary and ocean water; and is a perfect position to enjoy a morning coffee with a power-point to set up an ad hoc workstation (if you find out that you really, really HAVE to work on holiday!).
Car parking is on the street or on our sloping driveway.
With the exception of one small 2" step down to the toilet area the house is level throughout- all the way through to the outside balcony that overlooks the pool. Access to the pool and laundry is down the sloping driveway or down the wooden steps out the back.
Please note: due to the history of the house we have been unable to alter the size of the WC/powder room which would make access difficult for a wheelchair user.
The salt water pool is unheated but is the ideal place for fearless kids or a quick cool down after a hot day. The use of the pool is based upon our understanding that non-swimmers and younger guests will be under your supervision.
During your stay the undercroft and garage will remain locked off as storage. However, we do offer you an extra, bonus no frills beach/pool shower room and toilet downstairs for your stay.
Linen will be provided and there will be a bath towel for each guest for bathroom use.
Please no schoolies, under 25 year old groups, or those who like their music loud- this is not the place for you ;)
Smokers will have to go outside to enjoy the fresh air. Dogs will have to sleep in their own beds (not yours or on the couches!).

We will endeavor to be there to greet you if possible. However, if we are unable to be there for your stay we will ask our nearby family members to be contactable to assist you.
Bring bathers, beach towels, fishing rods, Crab nets, your water toys, your bike, and a good book!
You decide: get out actively amongst it, or peacefully retreat from it!
We welcome well-behaved dogs but ask that they stay off the furniture.
Sorry no schoolies, those who like their music loud, or young groups under 25 years. This is just not the right fit for you- thank you.
"Why wait?" Life is for living, exploring, and feeling. Be brave and try something new. The best time is now.
