Comfy, practical and tucked away from the traffic, this little beach house is just ONE house from the beach in the peaceful village of Mylestom. No need to pack the car and drive to the beach - it's just over the sand dune - long, clean, unspoilt and patrolled in summer! And it's a flat stroll in the other direction to the Bellinger River and the picnic tables. The river is tidal as Mylestom is just 4 kms from the mouth at Urunga, and it is ideal for boating. The sunsets are beautiful from any of the picnic tables on the river bank.
Cottage has two bedrooms - a queen bed in one and a double bed in the other. The bathroom has a full size bath with overhead shower and a toilet. There is an extra toilet by the back door adjoining the deck.
There is a semi-enclosed porch at the front of the cottage that leads into the north facing sun room, with views across road to the pretty tree-fillled reserve. A single bed and two lounge chairs are in the sun room. The lounge room contains a sofa-bed that may be used as an extra bed.
The cottage is in a quiet cul-de-sac one house between you and a choice of tracks to the beach. The beach is long and clean, great for walking - 4 kms south to the river mouth at Urunga, and less than 2 kms north to Bongil Bongil National Park and the start of the Bundageree rainforest walk. The beach is patrolled from 9 til 4 during school holidays. There is also an enclosed river pool and playground opposite the general store cafe, less than 5 minutes walk away.
The cottage is less than 10 minutes walking distance to North Beach Bowling Club where there is a fantastic pizza outlet and a licensed Chinese Restaurant. There is a skate park, boat ramp and tennis courts but the club. The local shop, also the post office and cafe, does great takeaways up until 430pm.
The cottage is well setup for holidays and relaxing: there is a stereo with i-pod dock, books, board games, a DVD player, DVDs and television in the lounge room. Bedrooms have reading lamps and ceiling fans.
Kitchen appliances include electric wok, blender, food processor, juicer, microwave, barbeque in addition to complete sets of crockery, cutlery, and cookware.
The house windows and doors are all screened. Recent improvements include new windows in the sunroom, a deck on the front and an extension to the rear deck + a trellis privacy screen by the fence off the back deck.
There is under cover parking (under the house) for one vehicle plus a boat, and off street parking for other vehicles. Also plenty of safe storage area for bikes and surf gear.
Pets are NOT allowed inside the house. There are enclosed areas underneath the house by the laundry where they will not be disturbed. If you would like to bring a pet this MUST be discussed with the owner prior to booking.
There is a separate studio with rear lane access behind the house that is sometimes occupied by the owner. Guest's privacy is respected whenever owner is resident.
Mylestom is only a 20 minute drive to Bellingen or Coffs Harbour. Local supermarkets are in Urunga (10 minutes drive) and Toormina or Boambee, and a local butcher in Repton (5 minutes drive).
A trip up to the Dorrigo World Heritage listed rainforest and Information Centre is a beautiful drive of only 30 kms from Bellingen, up the valley. Don't missit!.
For holiday makers without a car, transfers from the Coffs airport (serviced by Qantas, Virgin and Tiger) or from Urunga railway station can be arranged. Mylestom has a bus service to Bellingen, Urunga and Coffs Harbour. but it's great to just stay in the village and relax too.
Return bookings will be discounted by 10% if the house left clean.
