My unique little home is situated on Molloy Island on the Blackwood River and offers a quiet get away from the hussle and bussle of our busy lives. Surrounded by the majestic Blackwood and Scott rivers with wildlife abound, swimming, fishing and boating is at your hand. TWO THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR STAY........Travel to and from the Island by ferry, exclusively for land/home owners and their quests. The ferry is operated by the Island Manager on the hour between 8am-5pm and by home owners on the half hour (as their needs arise). Home owners operate the ferry on the hour and half hour between 5am-8am and 5pm-10.30pm as their needs arise. As well as needed by home owners between 10.30pm-5am. Cost is $5 per car and $10 with trailer/boat to cross over to the Island. No charge to return to the mainland. Guests will have to rely on home owners comings and goings outside of 8am and well as....ALL ROOMS in my home open outside to a covered courtyard. This can be a concern for some guests.
By sending a booking request future guests understand the uniqueness of my home. Please write in the comments section that you have read and understood the uniqueness of my home and our Island as this will speed up my acceptance of your booking request.
Things to do on the island
The island has bush walking tracks... these are marked by yellow triangles on the road, a tennis court, basketball hoop, swimming and playground area for the kiddies and boat ramps for easy boating. We have a mob of kangaroos living amongst us as quietly as we do them. Many native birds go about their business safe from cats on our Island. With no street lights and only quiet traffic moving around our island is the perfect place to slow down and relax. I have two single kyaks and three bikes for use, at your own risk. Life jackets provided.
My home offers
My little home is as it's name suggests...........Unique.....
ALL THREE BEDROOMS, LIVING AREA, BATHROOM AND LAUNDRY OPEN TO COVERED, PAVED OUTSIDE CENTRAL COURTYARD
My home offers three bedrooms (two with their own verandah's), two queen, one double, a cot and fold out bed for children. Also two paved chess/checker boards and O's and X's for the kiddies or an interesting pass time with a view drinks. The kitchen has an old wood stove (cook on top only), as well as the usual cooking burner electric stove top, microwave, electric wok, bench top glass oven, toaster, sandwich maker and slow cooker. Plenty of seating in the open living area as well as outside. A new addition is my wood fire to heat the kitchen/lounge area. Some fire wood provided and some bagged wood if needed (extra cost)
Bed linen and towels provided.
Part of our island life is that we don't have fences, however my courtyard is fenced to keep wildlife out and young children close the gates.
On Molloy we are actively water wise as our water supply comes from the clouds, so I ask everyone to use the water sparingly. It is a very precious item in the warmer months..
Sorry 'no pets'
As a welcoming gift you will find a bottle of one of my favourite wines to enjoy during your stay.
