The Ploughman’s Rest is located in Malua Bay on the south coast of NSW, approx. 4 hrs drive from Sydney and 2 hours from Canberra. We are only 16 mins. from Bateman's Bay. This area is a popular tourist destination and is well known for its beautiful beaches. We offer unique luxury accommodation for two guests in a spacious self-contained annex attached to the family home. Guests also have access to the garden and private off-street parking.

The space
The Ploughman’s Rest offers unique, luxury, motel style accommodation for two guests in a spacious self-contained annex attached to the family home which is a relatively new building, less than 5 years old, and is modern, clean and contemporary. The guest's area is separated from the main house by a door that will be locked whilst guests are visiting. The area is private and has vertical blinds to ensure guest’s privacy. The furniture is modern coastal design and the soft furnishings are tasteful and comfortable.

Guest's accommodation includes a bedroom with a queen bed and a television, a sitting room with comfy chairs and a breakfast bar, an ensuite and a hallway area providing plenty of space for luggage etc. Chests of drawers provide storage for clothing and a small wardrobe is also provided. The rooms open out onto a private covered outdoor area overlooking the garden. The guests also have access to the family outdoor barbecue area and the garden. Off-street parking is available for our guest's vehicle. The venue does not provide cooking facilities other than tea and coffee making equipment, a toaster, a microwave and a fridge. Crockery and cutlery are provided. The venue is designed for short-term accommodation only. We request 'no pets', 'no children' and 'no smoking' on the premises.

This will include but is not limited to couples on holidays who like to dine out at the local venues, couples passing through or visiting relatives and needing a room for the night, couples competing in bowls competitions at the Malua Bay Bowling Club which is close by and couples just wishing to enjoy a unique accommodation experience such as ours.

Location

Malua Bay, New South Wales, Australia

The Ploughman's Rest is located in beautiful Malua Bay on the south coast of New South Wales. An area that is well known for its' pristine beaches. We are located in a bushy area adjacent to wetlands and so have the pleasure of many different species of birds. We have resident Kookaburras and Magpies who come to be fed every day and have raised their young in the trees around us. We are often visited by Kangaroos in the evening. We are a short walk from the beach, the shopping centre and the Malua Bay Bowling Club and so have easy access to restaurants and cafes. From here Courtesy buses are available to take guests to the Malua Bay Bowling Club, The Bateman’s Bay Soldier’s Club and the Tomakin Bowling Club, all of which provide fine dining and gaming.

The Malua Bay Shopping Centre provides a butcher, an IGA supermarket, a newsagent, a chemist, a liquor shop, the Sandy Foot Café and some friendly real estate agencies. A short 5 minutes drive away at Lilli Pilli is the #No 366 Espresso Bar that serves beautiful food and a hairdresser providing beauty treatments. We have everything a guest will need.

My husband Gordon and I love living at Malua Bay. We are passionate about opening up our home for short term accommodation. We love entertaining and are looking forward to meeting lots of lovely people. We love playing lawn bowls and mixing with our friemds at the local Bowling Club. We love the beach and spending time with our grandchildren when they are on school holidays. We have just acquired a caravan and are planning many road trips around Australia when we can. We will look forward to showing our beautiful area to many visitors.

During your stay
The Ploughman's Rest is hosted by a husband and wife team, Gordon and Marj O’Neill. We are retired folk, ex-farmers and in our farming life we have made great use of the Mouldboard Plough which is now located in the garden – hence the name ‘The Ploughman’s Rest’. We enjoy entertaining guests and will endeavour to make our visitors stay with us a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

We will be on hand to greet our guests and to see them depart. One of us will be present at the listing at all times during our guest's stay. Guests will be invited to join us for an afternoon drink and a chat but that will be the extent of our planned interaction. Guests will be free to keep privately to themselves or to wander around the property and the adjacent area. Information on all the local attractions of the area will be located in the room and we will be available at all times to provide any advice or assistance that is needed.
