If you love camping and love the bush, but want comfort as well (without the colourbond fence!)
- The shack is for you!
The Bower Bird Shack is a cosy apartment built from new and recycled materials and with an ecologically sound waterless toilet. It is nestled in the bush near the popular Sharkey's and Coledale Beaches. It is up and away from the blustery nor-easters that come through in a cool, bush setting. So relaxing and private, yet close to shops, restaurants, clubs, cafes and of course, beaches.
From the comfortable queen bed, you may see, if you are quiet enough, a Bower Bird hopping about its business in the green foliage. There is also single bunk beds in the generous sized family bedroom and a sofa bed in the sitting area.
The Bower Bird Shack is a hidden treasure. It has the comforts of a queen size bed with a top quality latex mattress. The family bedroom is separated from the rest of the apartment with a door, it has 1 queen and a set of single bunk beds in the bedroom with fantastic views out the large bedroom windows into the natural bush garden.
A fully equipped kitchen (quaint early 80's style in great shape) with stove top, oven and grill. The kitchen and lounge are one cosy space, with a raised bench to enjoy a coffee and the peaceful bush.
The bathroom is equipped with a separate shower with a large rain shower head and separate bath. A unique feature of the shack is its ecologically sound waterless toilet. This is a state of the art Canadian designed composting toilet system certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 41.
You will find, however, that you want to spend most of your time outdoors. The outdoor area has a dining table under the trees and is pleasantly private.
If you love the relaxed atmosphere of camping, but want a comfortable bed - This is for you! Bring your own linens to take advantage of our low advertised rate, or ask us to supply them for $25 per person per stay.
Enjoy privacy, bush and why not have a campfire at night!
There is a barbecue with outside lighting
PETS are welcome at The Bower Bird Shack
Please Note, The property is NOT FENCED. Therefore, all pets are required to be on a lead or controlled at all times when on the property. For many pets, this is o.k. as we have a long lead available, and they are happily tired after great big runs on the local leash-free Sharkey's Beach. Pet-sitting is available by arrangement when suitable, however, pets are not to be left in accommodation unsupervised.
CHILDREN are also welcomed at The Bower Bird Shack.
Please Note, however: The property is NOT FENCED. There are potential hazards for unsupervised children as you would expect in a bush setting adjacent to a furniture workshop and with creek nearby. The bower bird shack is nestled into the Illawarra escarpment with fantastic bird life, water dragons and you may hear the resident wallaby thump past at night or dawn
Please note: there is NO TV RECEPTION at the shack. We supply a television and DVD player, with a selection of DVDs, novels and magazines
