8 Depot Beach is the perfect escape for couples or families seeking a retreat back into nature.
No one grows tired of gazing to Pebbly Beach and beyond. The colour of the ocean varies with sun, cloud and season through sapphire, cobalt, teal, and slate. Some of the very best of Australian birdlife cavort around you. Other favourite activities include bushwalking, swimming, fishing, diving, canoodling (BYO Other), and stillness.
Upstairs is the centre of living at 8 Depot Beach: great kitchen, huge verandah, sail protection, two eating areas, spacious living and a wood combustion stove, beds for four people.
Opening out the bi-fold doors from the king master room gives the "best actual view from bed” imaginable. The en-suite includes a generous bathtub.
Bunks in a separate upstairs bedroom are adult-sized. When the cedar blinds are open, they give the "second best actual view from bed" ("Best" in Bunk category!)The range of DVDs, puzzles, and books waxes and wanes with visitors who’ve made this their home – for however short a time. WiFi codes are on the router. The Smart TV is clever enough for your favourite free-to-air programs.If you need to connect with people, calls out are free – except for international calls. Mobile reception is such that thumb RSI recovery rates are very high – actually, some providers work well.
Recent improvements include a fantastic solar-passive sail and gorgeous cedar doors and screens.
Downstairs sleeps another five. It includes a king-size bed in one room, with eating and living area, and a tri-bunk in the other room. A granite kitchenette includes a microwave, another washing machine and a fridge. The downstairs bathroom (step-in shower and toilet) is accessible to both rooms.
We provide all blankets and doonas and king-size sheets. If possible, guests are asked to bring their own bunk bed sheets.Towels can be arranged.
If you require less space, the upstairs section (only) is available during non-peak periods, please contact us to discuss your needs. We don't rent out downstairs to other parties if upstairs is booked.
It's a Zoo Out There
You’ll be kept company by king parrots, rosellas, wattlebirds, and other larrikins – including kookaburras we call ‘Bold’ and ‘Bolder’ for reasons you’ll discover if you have food within reach of their wily beaks! Leave the gates open and the Australian myth about kangaroos in the front yard becomes fair dinkum when Victa the lawn-moving kangaroo bounces on in, with or without his family. The yard is fenced. Depot Beach is a small collection of houses is in the middle of the very beautiful Murramarang National Park – we do not allow pets.
Parking and Facilities
Cars are protected behind a huge rolla-door garage. Machines include those for washing dishes, washing clothes, drying clothes, drying hair, and ironing (seldom used!).
The keys are made available on-site, so no trips to Batemans Bay are involved.
