Extra blankets and pillows in the wardrobe. There is an iron and ironing board in the cupboard if required.

Lovely little cottage with a tasty veggie garden and friendly kangaroos. If you're around on a Sunday, be sure to join in on Diane's great morning yoga class on the beach.

Thanks for having us! It can be difficult travelling with a dog but having places like yours available makes it easy to hang out with our best mate! Your place was everything we could have wanted! Super cute and jam packed with thoughtful supplies. A+ accommodation. Thankyou!

An amazingly quiet, secluded and relaxing stay in a sweet little cottage. Super pet friendly and safe, we were even greeted with small dog treats for our puppy. Couldn't ask for a sweeter place to stay!

As others have said, Diane has thought of everything. I loved the quiet, secluded location, with kangaroos visiting everyday. I loved reading in the hammock and the beach is close by. The little fenced off yard was perfect for my little dog. I'll be back!

I am the local yoga teacher here at Bawley Point. I run classes at the local community hall as well as beach side Yoga in warmer months. I enjoy getting my hands dirty in the vegetable garden and love sharing the produce.
