There are so many details about this place which made me happy. It started as soon as we arrived, when hungry rosellas appeared on the balcony, hoping for a gift of bird seed. I loved this, because rosellas are generally really shy birds. It was a treat to see them close up. The details inside were thoughtful and generous. Toiletries... More

My family stayed in April 2014. We were so impressed with the lovely cottages and the beautiful surroundings. The cottages give just enough privacy and the outlook from our front deck was so restful. The lawn area in front of the cottages was great for our grandson to have a run around and he loved the games room, especially good... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay in cottage no 5 Mystery Bay, so much better than others in the area. Very private, huge rooms with tall ceilings, large windows and a shaded deck with a fabulous view. Everything from the local photography on the walls, clean herb scented towels to the bird seed and real coffee showed the... More

Stayed here (in Cottage 4) with my family in January 14 and had the best holiday ever. We've been to loads of places on the coast and this was by far the best. Great facilities, extremely clean and roomy cottages and very comfy queen bed in our bedroom. Great views and loads of space to relax and for the kids... More

We stayed here in Dec and think it is the best place we've ever stayed. Nigel was lovely on arrival and pointed us to our cottage (we stayed in Cottage 6 nearest the beach). The little touches were wonderful - hand made soap, rosemary in the towels, free birdseed, fresh milk. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and spacious. We... More

We chose this cottage as it was in a nice location, was self contained so we could cook our own meals, and the photos on the website looked excellent. In real life though we were a bit disappointed with the interior of the cottage, it definitely looks a lot better on the website. It was nice and spacious but the... More

Great views, peacefully with lots of trees, open grass area and bird ect, with a short walk to three beaches. The cabins were large and functional, although the furnishings needed upgrading and the mattress was very uncomfortable. We would certainly stay here again.

What a lovely location! Set among rolling hills, a misty mountain in the background and quite close to the beach. Also very close to Narooma which has a woolies and plenty of restaurants.

This person was happily enjoying a WOTIF discounted weekend stay....when....he saw a future mid-week price which was slightly lower. He then demanded we match this price despite the fact he had already fully paid WOTIF directly. We tried to explain this to him but he said he was disappointed and would take it further....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"We've discovered some breathtaking places together... but Mystery Bay Cottages will forever be remembered as one of the best." - Eamonn Duff, Sun Herald. These 6 architect-designed cottages are located in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable - nestled between National Parkland and award-winning beaches. They are airy and spacious with high-raked ceilings and provide everything you need to make your stay as pleasurable as possible - log fires (wood supplied), electric blankets, TV DVD player, full kitchen, laundry, comfy sofas and dining suite. There is also heating throughout the cottage. There are 2 bedrooms - a queen room and a twin room and a single fold-out bed if required. We provide all linen, towels, tea & plunger coffee, toiletries and even bird seed for your own bird table (the wildlife is spectacular with rare birds, echidnas, possums and wallabies). We have a full-sized tennis court (equipment provided at no charge), a games room (with table tennis, table soccer, table air hockey, books, magazines, DVD's and kids toys) and a floodlit covered gas BBQ area. High chairs and travel cots are also provided free of charge. And being only 4.5 hours south of Sydney, 2.5 hours from Canberra and between Narooma and historic Tilba our location is perfect - the peace and tranquility you dream of with everything within a stones-throw. Why not take our advice and "Drift away at Mystery Bay..." ... more   less
