Castaway Cottage is in the river and seaside village of Mylestom on the north coast of New South Wales. It is a 1940's style country weekender has been thoughtfully fashioned into a bright and beachy, comfortable and relaxing hideaway.
The cottage is a like a private cocoon, perfect for a romantic escape for two when all you desire is each other's company in restful and serene surroundings.
It is also ideal for two couples holidaying together or for a family of up to six as there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom in the cottage.
There is a generous L shaped casual lounge, well equipped kitchen, bathroom and laundry, back yard with an undercover entertainment area and gas barbecue, outside shower and off-street parking.
A very short walk away is the beach and tidal swimming pool, surf club, general store and cafe, riverside parks and many hours of seaside strolling along sandy shores. A short drive away are the villages of Bellingen and Sawtell with their boutique shopping and cafes. A little further, on the Great Dividing Range, is World Heritage rainforest in Dorrigo National Park, or closer, the Littoral rainforest of Bongil Bongil National Park.
