Sheerwater was originally a small holiday shack built in the 1950s. Since then it has been partially renovated and extended over the years to become a cosy 3 bedroom family holiday cottage with stunning ocean views. It is powered by a small solar system with a brand new 450Lt fridge/freezer, new gas stove, gas hot water and gas heater. Unfortunately due to only a small solar system there is no microwave or washing machine, however a laundromat is available in Northcliffe at the community Centre on Zamia Street.

It is fully self-contained with all crockery, cutlery, toaster, French press for coffee, pots and pans etc and a couple of wind-up torches for kangaroo spots for the kids.

We don’t provide linen only pillows and doonas. It also has a smart TV (sorry no internet only if you have a telstra phone and good data) and DVD player, a selection of DVDs, loads of books, magazines and board games. The roadside balcony houses a gas barbecue and outdoor seating. For safety of small children the balcony has a lockable gate. Mosquitos are around in the evenings, being close to the ocean, some mosquito coils are available. The peppermint trees do attract bees in the spring and early summer season.

Even in the winter it’s great being warm and snug in this cosy cottage watching the waves rise and fall. Just start by closing off the bedrooms crank the heater up to four bars and turn on the heater fan switch, after a short time you will want to open the bedroom doors as it gets really warm. Unfortunately the bedrooms don’t have their own heating.
