The kitchen is large and well equipped for those who enjoy cooking. The range cooker has 7 burners and 2 large ovens, a slow oven and a wok burner. There is a new full sized Bosch dishwasher. The separate utility room has a new Bosch washing machine and also a new full size fridge freezer.

You can relax in the large lounge which has fantastic views of the beach through the new patio doors. There is a full HD 42 inch LCD TV with a DVD and Blu-ray player and surround sound through the Ruarck Hi-Fi.​

Our guests say...

Balranald Bay View Cottage is a very special place and we found it difficult to tear ourselves away from it. We spent hours looking out of the kitchen window or staying in the garden listening to the wildlife and wading birds including curlews and herons.
