This is a fully furnished one bed room cottage perched on the edge of the sea surrounded by forests of ti trees. It is in Sandy Point, 2 and half hours drive from Melbourne. Sandy Point is half an hour drive from the famous Wilsons' Promonotory, a national park. Breath takingly beautiful Wilson's Prom is full of koalas, kangaroos, and other Aussie native animals that you can see in the wild. At night wombats and other nocturnal animals come out and with a torch, taking a walk, you can see these lovely gentle and shy animals. Nearby is Shallow Inlet, 5 minutes from my cottage, where you can wind surf, fish, swim and take absolutely divine walks on the beach.
The cottage or cabin or shack as Aussies would call it, is beautifully located in no through road corner. This road leads straight to the sea so perfectly safe for children and oldies as there are no traffic to watch out for. It has one bedroom and sleeps 4 people preferably couple in double bed and 2 children in bunks beds. There are sofa beds in the lounge room that can sleep two people. 4 adults and 2 kids is about the limit I will allow.
A fully equipped kitchen including pots and pans, stove, electric frying pan, microwave, toaster, kettle, griller and cutlery and crockery for 4-6 people. The bedrooms have doonas (or duvets) and blankets. BUT PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN DOONA COVERS, BEDSHEETS, PILLOW CASES AND TOWELS AND PERSONAL TOILETRIES.
The belly stove is new and is simply the cosiest in the world, well, my world anyway.
This is my holiday shack and once upon- a -time love nest, and I rent out the whole place now to raise money for my charity to do with starving orphans in E Timor, India and Melbourne. It is very family friendly and pets are allowed if they do not interfere with the wildlife ie our beloved koalas, wombats, etc.
Enjoy our holiday shack !
Leave it as you found it.
The cottage is indeed by the sea, just a short walk to a pretty and secluded beach with beautiful fine sand. It was also a short drive to Wison's Promontory, where we did a couple of short 1-2 hour walks over two days. Overall, a comfortable place to holiday and unwind for a few days.
Cottage-by-the-sea is a great base to explore Wilsons Prom and surrounds. Spacious living and kitchen area look out onto a great tree side vista. All facilities as described and functional. Great place with all the basics for your escape from the hustle and bustle of the city! Thanks Moni!
Great communication before we arrived so no problems finding house or getting in. Comfortable, homey and great location. Would stay again
Moni made us feel very welcome. She was considerate and honest and very quick to respond to
communications. It was a lovely little place to stay and ideal for going to the beach and getting away.

I am a writer, playwright, poet and a seasoned traveller, consulting all over the globe (0ver 20 years) on doing business in Asia and Australia. Airbnb is great for me as it is a collaborative community of like minded people. I enjoy doing it tremendously meeting all sorts, shapes and colours in my listings in Australia. My partner in travel is Felipe or Phil. He is bilingual (English & Spanish) having lived in south america for 20 years. Together we roam round the world singing, putting events on and generally have a good time. Felipe has a listing in Langkawi, Malaysia on airbnb as well. Langkawi Hut - 10 steps to the sea is quite an experience and we live there when we are not in Brighton 4 doors to the sea. As you can see, we love the sea. We should have been born as dolphins. For more about us, you will need to come and stay with us.
