No more getting into a hot car when you are covered in sand and salt. Located right on the beach, you will find this the archetypal beach house.
Comfortable and well appointed with all amenities including a toasty combustion fire, gas BBQ, a CD player with a selection of CD's, TV, DVD, VCR, MP3 jack, dishwasher, espresso machine, full laundry and a second toilet and bathroom which is accessible from outside only - perfect for when enjoying a BBQ or for off the beach. There are many extras including an esky, picnic basket, a cupboard full of books, games, toys, DVD's and videos.There is also a large supply of beach toys including boogie boards, under the house.
We also supply tea, coffee and milk for your arrival
There are 3 bedrooms with 2 queens and a tribunk with another single in the third bedroom so will sleep 3 couples comfortably. We hope you will like our newly renovated bathroom.
Apart for a few stairs into the cottage, it is all on one level inside and access to the beach is virtually flat. I can provide at no charge an over-the-toilet commode chair and shower chair for our older guests or a cot, high chair and baby bath for the little ones, on request.
There are large decks front and back, both with outdoor furniture, and plenty of parking for your boat or extra car. There are timber floors in the main areas, carpet in the bedrooms.

If we are booked here, please have a look at our other beach front property, The Riverside Townhouse.
Located right on the dunes with magnificent views of the Tollgate Islands and the bay. It is about 2 kilometres to town (enjoy walking into town via the beach at low tide), has a local shopping centre with a superette, and great bottle shop, take away and hair salon and is in a quiet residential area.
The property is unfenced but dogs are allowed inside provided they are fully house-trained, kept off the furniture, are kept well groomed and free of sand and treated for fleas (tick treatment also recommended). We charge a $20 fee per dog per booking to cover the more frequent carpet cleaning, preventative flea treatments to the property etc. If your dog is a shedder, we would appreciate you using the vacuum or additional cleaning may be charged.
Please let us know if you are bringing a dog.
PLEASE NOTE - WE DO NOT ACCEPT SCHOOLIES OR GROUPS.
Apart from the beach at your doorstep, there are the wonderful shops in Mogo and of course the Mogo Zoo, Birdland, bushwalking, fishing, golf, many other water sports including cruises up the river, fishing charters and hire boats.
