With the whole place to ourselves this retreat was simply great! Mind you it is still winter and not as populated like other warm seasons! This is very comfortable and cosy to stay in. With 6 cottages at the moment to stay in all two bedroom with car accommodation as well, this is suited for all families even with pets!... More

We had a lovely break here in the middle of winter. Perfect for active kids as there is plenty of space to run around. Accommodation simple but has everything you need. Also has a games room and tennis court which the kids loved but we thought could do with a little sprucing up. We enjoyed lighting up the pot belly... More

A perfect place to relax and getaway. The cabins are basic and beautiful. Fire place is the centrepiece, with all firewood provided. Instructions are in the guide! Walking trails to beautiful beaches with whale watching hot spots. There are huge grass fields on property perfect for crickey and kids. Highly recommend.

We spent 8 days at Mystery Bay Cottages and came home with the firm intention of returning for a 5th visit next year. The greatest attraction is the beauty of the natural environment: the beaches, the whole pastoral landscape, the wildlife. We saw from our kitchen window a male bower bird (and found his bower nearby), 3 whipbirds (they are... More

Perfect and peaceful place to relax and take in the wonderful surrondings. My wife and I spent a week there but could easily have stayed longer. Our Son, Daughter in law and two Grandchildren joined us for the weekend and the staff were only too happy to accommodate them. We enjoyed the ideal location, only a 10 minute drive back... More

Like quieter places . Chanced on the sign as we headed toward the bay and drove in to check out for accommodation . One cabin free which we were invited to inspect before renting. One of 6 cabins set in most beautiful surroundings. Bird life amazing. Owner left a pot of seed to feed the parrots if we wished. Close... More

Soon we had a roaring fire to enjoy as the storm set in. A glass of good SA red and and the latest Michael Robotham to read...glad we packed those!What a pleasant place to... More

The outlook and view from these cottages is beautiful. The cottages are tired and need a spruce up. Disappointed that there is no air con and only 1 fan. The verandah only has 2 chairs although the cottages sleep 4. I feel that the price tag does not reflect the condition of the cottages.

We would stay again BUT come on guys mow your grass and give that poor verandah a coat of PAINT. Just small things but in my opinion... More

Perfect place to unwind and relax. This is my second visit and it is just as I remembered. The cottages are equipped with everything you need including birdseed to feed the abundant locals - the birds will eat out of your hand! The wildlife is a delight, saw a little potaroo (I think) and a possum on my front deck.... More

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
