The space
This beach cottage is the perfect little weekend escape. It is small, but very cute and comfy with nice furnishings and everything you need for your holiday. My cottage is unique because its situated right next to the quiet main road of town, so its really easy access into town and across the road to the main beaches. It can comfortably sleep 2 people.
The cottage has a nice cosy lounge room with a log fire for those chilly nights and a sun bed next to large open windows to fall asleep on as you read a book, separate double bedroom with a queen size bed and a separate single bed, small dining area and large kitchen with stove, oven, microwave. Separate bathroom and toilet. Outside the backdoor is a nice undercover deck area with BBQ and nice deck chairs, a large open backyard with some nice trees and a big stone FIRE pit to drink wine around and stargaze after a hard days walking, diving or surfing (think Game of At the rear of the yard is a shed with some old push bikes, old diving gear and bodyboards for surfing. The backyard gets beautiful afternoon sun, and is wind protected.
The front of the cottage also has a nice new deck with table/chairs and gets really nice morning sun. The property is situated next to the quiet main road of Bicheno, so its a short five minute walk across to the 2 best beaches of Bicheno, Red Bill Beach and Waubs Beach. The house sits across the road from the main penguin walking track and we also have penguins that come and nest under the house and caravan... you will spot them if you're quiet. The house itself is a short walk into town or quick bike ride. Im an avid book collector and there is a wide range of literature in the cottage.

Hi My name is Bassett Dickson, I own this cute little beach cottage in the lovely beachside town of Bicheno. I work freelance in Film and TV production - and work a lot on the mainland of Australia and overseas. As a result I rent my place on Airbnb a lot. You will be greeted by my brilliant Mother, Gail Dickson. She will settle you in to the cottage and can give you advice on what to do and see in Bicheno - penguin spotting, beaches, walks etc.
