The space

Moonrise Studio Cottage provides an ideal base for a relaxing coastal holiday for up to 2 adults and 2 children, or 1 older child, plus your pooch is most welcome. The cottage (approx 40sqm) offers a very comfortable queen bed, plus a double futon-sofabed (large enough for 2 children or 1 teenager/adult).

The space includes a separate bathroom and open plan lounge, dining, bed areas, and a fully-equipped kitchen/laundry with fridge, microwave, washer/dryer combo, as well as many other useful kitchen appliances and basic pantry items for cooking. Reverse Airconditioning, Free Wifi and a large Smart3D/LCD TV, Blu-ray Player, CD Player and Radio Alarm Clock with iPod- iPhone dock have been installed for your enjoyment. Guests are also welcome to borrow from the DVD Library.

The courtyard , with table and seating for 4 guests, is fully fenced and there is a gas BBQ for hire. (Smoking permitted outside).

‘Moonrise’ has been decked out, wherever possible, with sustainable and natural materials that aim to reduce harmful effects on the environment. Australian-made furniture, Australian woollen quilts, and top quality mattresses and pillows have been carefully chosen for your comfort, as well as their ecological benefit. Appliances have been installed for their energy and water efficiency. Lighting can be bright or subdued and though the residence has air-conditioning, the ceiling fan can make use of the soothing summer sea-breezes.

You will find a supply of bathroom toiletries and kitchen and laundry cleaning products that have been chosen for their environmentally-friendly credentials and we encourage recycling and provide a compost bin for food scraps to help feed our hungry worms.

Whether your stay is for a romantic weekend getaway for two, a relaxing mid-week vacation, a longer family holiday of a week or more, or exploring a beautiful destination for a couple of singles travelling together, our hope is that you will find time to connect with the abounding nature that surrounds 'Moonrise' and our peaceful 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat'.

Well-behaved dogs are permitted inside the cottage. Dogs are not allowed on beds or furniture, so please bring your dog’s bedding with you. Furry-friends are also welcome at the two safe-swimming, time-share beaches that are just a few minutes’ walk away, and a visit to the craggy coves below the cliff can be enjoyed off-leash anytime of the day or year.

Guest access

Guests staying at Moonrise are welcome to enjoy the residence's clifftop garden, which offers sweeping views of Batemans Bay's pristine, sparkling waters. Just a short walk from your private apartment, through the garden gate and along the top of the cliff are a number of access trails that step down to an array of gloriously quiet and secluded dog-friendly coves, all of which are idyllic for safe swimming, rock-pool exploration, exquisite sunsets or perhaps, just quiet contemplation. The gorgeous Maloneys Beach and Long Beach are also situated at either end of the cliff (with quick access through garden gate) and both provide safe swimming and opportunities for water sports of every kind. There's even a small coffee shop within walking distance that sells wine, beer, a basic supply of groceries, as well as freshly-made croissants, bread and newspapers on the weekends.

The majestic Murramarang National Park is almost on our doorstep and the wonderful Mogo Zoo, which focuses on endangered species and breeding programmes is only a 30 minute drive away. There are many fine restaurants, and holiday activities and attractions in Batemans Bay, which is a 10 minute drive from the residence.

Other things to note

Revitalise mind, body and soul with the sound of birdsong, fresh sea-breezes and the natural aromas emanating from the Spotted Gum woods nearby. Sightings of sea-eagles gliding on the ocean-air, dolphins playing in the bay and families of kangaroos grazing on the cliff top can often be enjoyed.

Whether your stay is for a romantic weekend getaway, a relaxing mid-week vacation, or for a longer family holiday of a week or more, our hope is that you will find time to connect with the abounding nature that inhabits this magical place and enjoy your time at our tranquil retreat, which is surrounded by tree and sea!

A very well equipped and roomy studio apartment. We loved having our dog with us for our holiday and felt he was made very welcome. Jaki was incredibly welcoming and showed us all the local walks etc from the apartment. The studio was very clean and we always felt we could ask if we needed anything. The location of this studio is perfect for anyone wanting to explore the south coast or even for a quiet retreat. It is very close to Batemans bay amenities but in a lovely quiet area on the clifftop. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Jaki.

We had a lovely time at Jaki's cottage. It is small, cozy and clean - fully equipped and perfectly fine for the four of us (two adults, two kids and one dog) given that we spent most of our time at Long Beach, which is only a 10-15 minute walk away. Jaki is a very pleasant host who welcomed us and informed us of all the local amenities.

Moonrise near Long Beach is a clean, tidy and cozy studio. Jaki was very helpful with her check in introductions and very prompt with her communications via AirBnB app. A few minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes drive to Batemans Bay; great location. Would recommend to others.

We really enjoyed the area of Bateman's Bay and the dog beaches were great for our dog. Jaki's studio is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It makes up in charm what it lacks in privacy (as it sits directly on the same block as her own house). The fact there are no fences and the studio faces the main road (not the ocean - the views in the photos are from her house not the studio itself) means it is not as ideal for an active dog like ours, as we may have hoped. However, Jaki took the time to welcome us thoroughly & made some nice local recommendations which we really enjoyed. Studio well equipped including DVDs and local brochures etc.

Thank you Priscilla for your visit and your lovely review. Just to let you know that we are now in the process of having the Moonrise Studio Cottage fully-fenced, and expect it to be ready before Easter. This will provide privacy for outdoor BBQ and relaxing, as well as increased security and enjoyment for pooches. My apologies if the sea-view photo misled a little. As you aware, Longbeach Clifftop Retreat offers 2 private holiday apartments, 'Sunset' apartment overlooks the bay, and 'Moonrise Studio Cottage' provides glimpses of sea from the side windows. There is a fenced communal clifftop garden, which has splendid ocean views, and guests from both apartments are very welcome to relax there if they like. It is a shame that the weather during your stay Priscilla was so wet, otherwise I would have suggested that Charlie come and spend some time enjoying the large garden there. Anyway, thank you Priscilla for your helpful feedback, it is important for me that future guests have a clear idea of what to expect while staying here. So, I have checked my listing and changed the wording to reflect a more accurate account of the particular photo in question. Hope this helps and would love to see you all here again after the fencing is installed.

Moonrise studio is one of the cleanest well looked after holiday houses that I've visted in many trips and warm hearted host Jaki is very attentive and cares a lot about guests and dogs too. Well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Cozy and comfortable bed with quality linens and enjoyed 3D blue ray dvd with smart tv, free wifi after enjoying nearby beautiful beaches and towns. Very quiet in daytime and at night too. Will visit again when I come down to south cost. highly recommended if you travel with your dogs.

Thank you Nikki for leaving such a wonderful review for Moonrise Studio Cottage. It was lovely getting to know you a little, and if you manage to get back here anytime soon I hope to have the place even more pooch-friendly with a fully-fenced terrace. Wish you all the best for 2016!

Jaki was a wonderful host and provided great local knowledge of the area for exactly what we were looking for. The property was perfect for us and we would happily go back as well as recommend to friends. Beautiful personal beaches just moments away, what more can you want.

Interaction with guests

I live onsite and look forward to meeting new guests and providing assistance wherever I can. After you've been given a short 'welcome tour' and given your keys, you are welcome to enjoy yourself in the privacy of your own accommodation.

About Jaki

I enjoy art, music, good food, wine and conversation and of course, visiting beautiful, natural places, especially those that have a spiritual or historical significance. I'm concerned about our environment, endangered species (especially orangutans) and social justice. I enjoy meeting new people from here and around the world. I am an ESL teacher and if the opportunity arises, I'm happy to assist guests from overseas to understand a little bit more about our Ozzie culture, while perhaps improving their English speaking skills while staying here.
