Manam's Rest… Serenity amongst the trees

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Backing on to wetlands, the trees overhead give the feeling of being in the surrounding national parks. Private courtyard gives you an outdoor space where you can relax …. serenity amongst the trees.

You will have private entry into the courtyard which gives you direct access to your room.

Your room is complete with kitchenette, TV, separate toilet and outdoor 'Byron' shower. Complimentary tea & coffee is also provided so you can relax and put your feet up before exploring the township.

Getting around is EASY!

We are close enough to walk everywhere, but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle. Our property backs onto serene wetlands where you can wake up to the sounds of nature. Or if a morning beach walk/swim is what you are after, you're spoilt for choice. We are a short stroll away from Tallow Beach and Tallow Creek, access gained through Arakwal National Park.

A 20min walk or 5min drive will get you into town centre and main beach. Public bus is also right out front. We also have bicycles for your use, subject to a refundable holding deposit. A surfboard is also available should you wish to ride the waves.

It couldn't be easier!

We're here to help make your stay MEMORABLE!

We live right next door so are generally around to assist you with any queries you may have.

And our puppy - Malu - may sneak through our door to greet you and say hello, but don't worry - she loves people and so do we.

The place was super quant, quiet, clean and tidy. While it is only small, great place to stay for a long weekend. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating, going above and beyond. The availability of bikes, made the short trip into town way easier and fun. I think I would find the place a bit small if staying longer than 3 nights, but def would book again for short stayz.

Nice and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

I needed a bit of solitude and relaxation after a super busy summer. Stayed at Manam's rest. Its one of the cheaper stays around, but I visited some mates at another property up the road and they basically got the same thing but were paying twice the price.

Its pretty basic, but clean and comfortable and private. The outdoor shower is great.

Beautiful and well appointed very private accommodation. Nice stroll from town and lovely hosts who really respected my privacy. Thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular outside shower. I highly recommend this special place to stay.

Tranquil Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week whilst looking for a property to purchase and found Manam's Rest to be really relaxing and refreshing. Every night we enjoyed the sounds of the rainforest to put us into a slumber and every morning woke to birdsongs before a short bike ride into town. The location is excellent as are the hosts who were super friendly and mindful. There is a short walk to Tallows beach which is amazing and secluded, and after you can rinse of in the outdoor shower which is private. I would highly recommend this property for its affordability, location and comfort.
