We stayed a week at Kookaburra Beach Cottage and how fantastic it was - exceeding our expectations and making us consider moving to Tallow Beach in many of those 'what if' moments. In fact for a change the photos on an accomodation website don't do...More

Kookaburra Cottage is beautifully set amidst coastal bushland. You could spend all day on the back deck. It was so lovely to be there, with glimmerings of lake water through the trees, hearing the sound of the sea a few minutes walk the other way....More

About the neighborhood
The cottage is situated in a gated estate and is one of twelve houses and cottages. So you won't suffer from noise pollution. All you will hear is the sound of the ocean, birdsong.
Getting around
It is best to have a car to visit the area. A bicycle is handy for short outings to town or light shopping at the local Suffolk shops. Beautiful walks on Tallow beach.
