The space
Please read my guests' reviews. Their language is generous, and their words (not mine) are the most accurate description of the experience you may expect when you choose my place. It is all about casual coastal comfort, and feeling instantly at home in an unfamiliar environment. The essence of mutual enjoyment is mutual trust and generosity.

Mine is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion .... honeymoon, anniversary or birthday. 28 return bookings in just 3 years makes this host happy.

LIVING/DINING (INDOORS AND OUT): Living areas on the mid-level look out to sea, together with both an elevated deck and an ocean-side garden courtyard for outside dining. There is a second bathroom with shower on this mid-floor living level.
You will find a fully-equipped, open plan kitchen with big views, ready for easy gourmet cooking without needing to bring food staples or cook books. Quality cookware, servingware, and appliances. Just about every basic pantry item you will need is available for your use, with no obligation to replenish.
Breakfast for the first day or two is complimentary....streaky bacon, free range eggs, Greek yoghurt, quality muesli, fresh juice, ham, cheddar, full cream milk, butter and Burgen bread in the freezer are waiting for you.

UPSTAIRS BEDROOM SUITE. Views..... never ending views. A perfect north-easterly aspect to wake up to a beautiful sunrise over the Tollgate Islands in the comfort of 1000 thread count sheets and pillow slips, doona, or cosy alpaca and Abode blankets and your choice of 4 pillows (2xfirm and 2xsoft).
Take a few steps from your bed and possibly glimpse dolphins playing in the Cove while having your morning shower with a view.
Your morning cuppa and toast can be prepared without even leaving the comfort of your master suite.
After a day of bush walking, swimming or kayaking, slip into a candle lit, 2-person spa bath to reinvigorate those tired muscles. Fall asleep to the sounds of the sea overlooking the sparkling moonlit waters of Sunshine Cove.

Location

Sunshine Bay, New South Wales, Australia

The NSW South Coast is famous for its temperate climate and intimate cove-beaches, heavily wooded right down to the ocean. These coves differentiate us from the broad beaches of the NSW North Coast, and even the Illawarra & Shoalhaven. Wonderful publicly-owned coastal walks almost anywhere you choose.
Sunshine Cove is the closest of these intimate coves to the north or south of the Batemans Bay CBD..... so private yet so convenient.
The beach is a 180 degree arc, giving sun-soaked sand any time of day, summer & winter.
Batemans Bay daytime max temperatures are identical to Sydney all year round, but cooler winter nights. We have way more winter sun than Sydney, with a lot less winter rain-days.
You are in the heart of the Batemans Bay Marine Park, together with the many National Parks and State Forests of the Eurobodalla.

I am ONE host with just ONE Airbnb property. Your visit therefore has my absolute attention. theCOVE North has never been my holiday house. It is my home! My soul lives at Sunshine Cove, but my wallet lives in Sydney. Everything you see and feel is carefully designed to make you feel at home the moment you step inside. I stay true to Airbnb's original thinking. My home is all about the uniqueness of what YOU experience. At my place, the 3 night minimum is essential to allow the location to untangle your busy life. The ocean, the bush, the sounds, together with unexpected extra touches add up to an experience which only my guests can describe, so read a few reviews before you commit.
