About this listing
Our retro beach side cabin sits in a private, tropical garden metres from a deserted, hidden away surf beach. Only known to insiders, the beach is backed by natural vegetation. Relax in the hanging out door daybed after the beach.
Twenty minutes from Coffs Harbour and a thousand miles from care lies the quiet beachside township of Mullaway - one of the best kept secrets on the NSW north coast.
Conveniently located approximately half way between Brisbane and Sydney and just 1.5 kilometres from the highway and situated a stone's throw from the beach sits your quaint, renovated historic 1950's cabin. The cabin is beachfront and there are no roads to cross to get to the beach, just a well maintained small reserve. Mullaway is a step back in time to a less frenetic, more relaxed era. It's the way the world should be. Bring the whole family as the accommodation and beach are pet friendly.
The Coffs coast is littered with great beaches and several of the best are right at your door. Just through the sand dune at your backdoor is Cabins beach - only known to the locals - often you might be the only souls on the beach. Take a bottle of champagne down at night and watch the moon come up in privacy. From the cabin, at the end of the secluded reserve, take the boardwalk through the palms and rainforest, past picturesque coastal views to the surf at uncrowded Mullaway beach. Arrawarra is a well known long board break and the beach is great for a family swim. Mullawarra lies between the two and it is also a great place for a surf or a laze on the beach. Dolphins are frequently seen playing in the waves and from the headlands from early May till late November whales can be seen migrating along the coast.
Wildlife also abounds on the land. Kangaroos are regular visitors and black cockatoos, galahs, lorikeets, rosellas, kookaburras, tawny frog mouths, possums, goannas, bush turkeys, echidnas, frogs and geckos also may be seen.
Clean off on the way back from the beach under the outdoor shower, picnic under the frangipani tree, luxuriate in the tranquility, read a book in the shade or play with the kids in the yard or reserve. Don't forget to look at the star filled sky - best viewed from the beach at night with only the distant lights of Woolgoolga to be seen, then fall asleep in your peaceful beachside cabin, shutters open, bathed in fresh air with the sound of the surf gently lulling you to sleep.
The two room cabin has a double bed and two bunk beds in the bedroom and sleeping for a fifth person is available on application and is on a make-up bed in the lounge/dining room. Cooking facilities include oven/cooktop, electric grill, microwave and a Weber BBQ.
Note:- Bathroom facilities are in a private, separate bath house (about 10 metres from the cabin) containing two showers, twin sinks and a toilet. The large laundry also provides generous storage.
Good quality takeaway and general supplies are available from the Mullaway General Store. Shopping facilities and restaurants are a 5 minute drive south in the township of Woolgoolga.

Popular with surfers but still not crowded is Mullaway Beach which is a few minutes walk - take the board walk. Mullawarra Beach is also a nice beach and hidden away. Arrawarra is a few minutes drive and is a renowned long board site as well as catching the northern sun (great views).
There is a much loved general store run by local characters Jan and Wally (try the beer battered chips).
