Many quiet beaches, national parks, rivers and lakes encourage swimming, fishing, surfing, bush and beach-walking, bird-watching, kayaking, cycling and horse riding. Options include visiting local wineries, galleries, boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
The air conditioned cottage is just metres from Cormorant beach, accessed via a short stroll through the adjacent Watts Reserve - no roads to cross.
Two decks, one facing the adjacent reserve and the other facing the back garden and banksia lined sand dunes, maximise shade, privacy and sea- breezes.
There is a comprehensive shopping centre two minutes away by car and there are several cafes in the immediate area.
Check-in is 2 pm and check-out is 10 am. The nightly rate depends on the season and ranges from $170 to $242 in the Easter and December - January holiday periods.
Minimum stay is normally 2 nights; it is 4 nights at Easter and 7 nights over December - January period. Bed linen and towels are available for an additional charge of $40 per bed, or guests can bring their own. Maximum guest number is 4, including infants.
A cleaning fee of $50 applies to each booking.
Guests have access to the entire property. Of compact design, the Cottage's two bedrooms (1 x Queen; 1 x Double bed) provide comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 4 guests, including infants.
A large back garden and two decks provide wonderful outdoor space.
The inside bathroom has a shower, toilet and hand-basin while the outdoor shower, with hot and cold water and fully screened for privacy, is much favoured.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, crockery and cutlery. The dining table seats four and there is ample seating, a TV, a DVD player, puzzles and books in the living area.
There is a clothes washing machine, clothes airer rack and outdoor clothes line.
There is no internet connection or wi-fi; and internet access for devices can be sporadic at the Cottage, as in many parts of Bawley Point. Good reception is possible on the nearby headlands such as on Tingira Drive and at the end of Harrington St.
Guests have commented that this cottage "has a wonderfully warm, welcoming feeling" and "a great sense of place".

As host I will be happy to offer suggestions and assistance, if required. I live just 20 minutes away by car.
Bawley Point has 5 beaches and residents and visitors make up an interesting and vibrant community.
The cottage is non-smoking. Sorry, but no pets. We would appreciate guests showing consideration of our neighbours in regard to noise. The number of guests is limited to those identified at the time of booking (with a maximum number of 4). No other guests can be added later. Non-booked vehicles including camper-trailers and caravans, nor any camping, are allowed on the property.
I am a keen traveller and family person; very interested in world textiles, architecture, art etc. I have stayed in Airbnb places in Spain, Japan, Canberra and Sydney. I agree with the Airbnb philosophy and enjoy meeting people and sharing with them this interesting and beautiful part of Australia.
