About this listing
This unique historic property is set in gardens and scattered gum trees with enchanting rural views out to pasture land and river flats. The property invites you to step back in time to a simpler, more gracious era but also offers modern facilities
The house is a beautiful retreat for anyone seeking a tranquil escape from city life or other stresses. The house is very much a home with old world charm. There is a beautiful lounge room for those who want to relax with a book or enjoy quiet activities and the large family room provides a space for noisier activities such as TV, music or games. The side verandah and front porch as well as the back BBQ area provide the perfect place for an early breakfast or pre-dinner drink while enjoying the magical rural views.
The whole house and grounds are accessible. The studio at the back is not accessible. Neither is the large shed.
Interaction with guests
It depends when you are there. I work overseas three weeks out of six so I may be there living in the back studio or I may be away.
Be assured if I am there that I am happy to help but will certainly keep out of your way if that is what you want.
The house is set in a rustic, pristine part of the world which gives an insight into the lives of a family living in the area in the 1930's.
Neighbours are friendly but do enjoy the peace and tranquillity just like it was in over eighty years ago.
You will need a car or bikes for this location as buses are infrequent.
Please do not bring any pets to the property and do not smoke inside the house. If smoking outside please use the ashtrays provided on the verandah and porch.
The house is a suitable venue for family and friends wanting to explore the area and relax in a beautiful and tranquil location. It is not suitable for large, noisy parties

I own a beautiful 1930's double brick home on eleven acres between Bega and Tathra. I love my home because it offers the best of both worlds. The rural location provides a tranquil hideaway but also offers close proximity to the beach at Tathra and to modern facilities in the vibrant country town at Bega. My home is also about five minutes from the new Bega hospital.
There are plenty of living spaces both inside and outside and all bedrooms have reverse cycle air conditioning and heating. All other living rooms have gas heating or wood fires.
The house is available for full rental if required but you can also book a single room. It is the perfect getaway for family reunions or holidays with friends. It is also provides comfortable and convenient accommodation for visiting professionals or those passing through on the way to Melbourne or Sydney.
I am a professional woman who is very busy with my job which often takes me away from home and sometimes overseas. I have worked in the Middle East and Central Asia and love to travel anywhere. I relish swapping travel tales
I enjoy meeting people but definitely am committed to facilitating guests to get on with what they need to do. No long conversations as you are trying to get out the door. In fact I do not live in the main house but live in a studio flat on the property.
I create a relaxed and quiet ambience in my home which is conducive to travelling professionals and holiday makers who value a quiet environment.
Overseas visitors are very welcome. Previous guests have often commented on how comfortable and relaxed they felt staying here.
