The holiday feel is immediate - the ocean views, the sea breeze, the bird sounds create a wonderful relaxed ambiance in this small community. Previously the Congo Fire Shed, the property has been tastefully renovated into a modern, open plan two and a half bedroom home. The house is furnished with bright and fun retro furnishings, sourced from second hand shops and garage sales and lovingly restored. The beach is an easy two-minute stroll away, and a bench at the top of the property allows you to enjoy views south across Congo beach with Montague Island in the distance. The bench is perfect for whale watching, morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.
Well-behaved dogs are most welcome - please advise on booking. Dogs can enjoy the beach with you during certain hours.
