About this listing
Our light, breezy and private Moonrise Studio Cottage (40sqm) is perfect for 2 singles, couples, or small families with 1 or 2 children above the age of 4. Well-behaved dogs are most welcome (2 small or 1 medium size). Enjoy quick access to 2 safe-swimming beaches plus dog-friendly coves below the Clifftop.
Moonrise Studio Cottage provides an ideal base for a relaxing coastal holiday for up to 2 adults and 2 children, or 1 older child, plus your pooch is most welcome. The cottage (approx 40sqm) offers a very comfortable queen bed, plus a double futon-sofabed (large enough for 2 children or 1 teenager/adult).
The space includes a separate bathroom and open plan lounge, dining, bed areas, and a fully-equipped kitchen/laundry with fridge, microwave, washer/dryer combo, as well as many other useful kitchen appliances and basic pantry items for cooking. Reverse Airconditioning, Free Wifi and a large Smart3D/LCD TV, Blu-ray Player, CD Player and Radio Alarm Clock with iPod- iPhone dock have been installed for your enjoyment. Guests are also welcome to borrow from the DVD Library.
The courtyard , with table and seating for 4 guests, is fully fenced and there is a gas BBQ for hire. (Smoking permitted outside).
‘Moonrise’ has been decked out, wherever possible, with sustainable and natural materials that aim to reduce harmful effects on the environment. Australian-made furniture, Australian woollen quilts, and top quality mattresses and pillows have been carefully chosen for your comfort, as well as their ecological benefit. Appliances have been installed for their energy and water efficiency. Lighting can be bright or subdued and though the residence has air-conditioning, the ceiling fan can make use of the soothing summer sea-breezes.
You will find a supply of bathroom toiletries and kitchen and laundry cleaning products that have been chosen for their environmentally-friendly credentials and we encourage recycling and provide a compost bin for food scraps to help feed our hungry worms.
Whether your stay is for a romantic weekend getaway for two, a relaxing mid-week vacation, a longer family holiday of a week or more, or exploring a beautiful destination for a couple of singles travelling together, our hope is that you will find time to connect with the abounding nature that surrounds 'Moonrise' and our peaceful 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat'.

Furry-friends are also welcome at the two safe-swimming, time-share beaches that are just a few minutes’ walk away, and a visit to the craggy coves below the cliff can be enjoyed off-leash anytime of the day or year.

Guests staying at Moonrise are welcome to enjoy the residence's clifftop garden, which offers sweeping views of Batemans Bay's pristine, sparkling waters. Just a short walk from your private apartment, through the garden gate and along the top of the cliff are a number of access trails that step down to an array of gloriously quiet and secluded dog-friendly coves, all of which are idyllic for safe swimming, rock-pool exploration, exquisite sunsets or perhaps, just quiet contemplation. The gorgeous Maloneys Beach and Long Beach are also situated at either end of the cliff (with quick access through garden gate) and both provide safe swimming and opportunities for water sports of every kind. There's even a small coffee shop within walking distance that sells wine, beer, a basic supply of groceries, as well as freshly-made croissants, bread and newspapers on the weekends.
The majestic Murramarang National Park is almost on our doorstep and the wonderful Mogo Zoo, which focuses on endangered species and breeding programmes is only a 30 minute drive away. There are many fine restaurants, and holiday activities and attractions in Batemans Bay, which is a 10 minute drive from the residence.
Interaction with guests
I live onsite and look forward to meeting new guests and providing assistance wherever I can. After you've been given a short 'welcome tour' and given your keys, you are welcome to enjoy yourself in the privacy of your own accommodation.

I enjoy art, music, good food, wine and conversation and of course, visiting beautiful, natural places, especially those that have a spiritual or historical significance. I'm concerned about our environment, endangered species (especially orangutans) and social justice. I enjoy meeting new people from here and around the world. I am an ESL teacher and if the opportunity arises, I'm happy to assist guests from overseas to understand a little bit more about our Ozzie culture, while perhaps improving their English speaking skills while staying here.
