Apu Murpu is a rustic, character-filled renovated cottage, set high on a hill looking across the upper Flagstone Creek valley. A fully equipped home with no close neighbours. It is cool in summer with fans, French doors and aircon; and the indoor fireplace ensures it is warm and cosy in winter. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck, toast marshmallows in the outside firepit, and watch the bush turkeys roosting in the early evening. The perfect place to switch off from the world and relax in nature.

The space
There is a queen bed in bedroom 1, two single beds in bedroom 2 ; and a baby's cot in bedroom 3. The fourth room is a reading room. There is an ageing but functional BBQ on the back patio. Also outside is a firepit, and a sandpit for kids.

I am a professional person in my early ‘60s, often accompanied by Anna, who co-hosts Apu Murpu with me. We share a love of hearty food, good wine and kelpies! If you are staying at our cottage you will have complete privacy, but we are both contactable by phone or text.
