WELCOME TO THE POUCH B & B
Tranquil Australian Bush setting
Nestled here in the heart of Moonee beach you will find The Pouch B & B. A luxury fully self contained private cottage surrounded by an acre of grassland and native gum trees. Daily watch the local kangaroo population (the mob), eat, rest and yes occasionally fight. We are approximately an eight minute drive to beautiful Moonee Beach and around 16 kilometre drive to the Coffs Harbour City centre. It is so quiet here, a place where you can unwind and soak up the wildlife. A place where it is so easy to loose your thoughts at the waters edge.
The deck is a good size and sits well above the waterline so you can view the water lilies and the koi fish. It is safe to sit here and watch the kangaroos. Bring your camera as you are sure to get some great photographs. The deck is mostly undercover so even on a wet day you can still stand and watch as the rain comes down. So many beautiful bird calls to listen to here in the park.
The Lounge Room
All furniture is brand new and has been positioned to take full advantage of the water and bush view. There is a leather couch, glass coffee table and carpet, a cosy arm chair, designer floor lamp, a TV complete with a DVD player and a few movies, a fabulous photographic piece and huge sliding doors that open up the lounge deck space.
We have a comfortable queen sized bed complete with mattress protector, new sheets and pillows, and an Australian wool quilt that keeps you warm in winter and cool in Summer. The double wardrobe has two hanging areas as well as a set of middle draws.The doors to the wardrobe are mirrored. The bedsides have a single draw and there are hanging pendant lights. There is luxurious carpet at the sides of the bed on the wooden floor. Blinds on all windows.
This dining room has a large window so you can sit back and enjoy the view. You will be able to watch the local wildlife at it's best and enjoy the reflections upon the water. Even when it rains this is still a beautifully spot to sit and ponder.
This kitchen has it all. A hotplate, oven, microwave, twin sink, toaster, dishwasher, and includes all crockery and cutlery. There is a Di Bella coffee machine and milk creamer. We supply quality tea bags, Di Bella coffee pods, milk and sugar. There will be fresh bread, eggs, bacon, cereal, juice and fruit for you to prepare your scrumptious breakfast.
The bathroom has a walk in shower, toilet, floating hand basin complete with above mirror. in the bathroom are double sliding doors which conceal the laundry where you will find the laundry tub, a washer/dryer, a hair dryer, some shelves and an iron and ironing board. We supply pump hand wash liquid, mini toiletries, toilet paper and some washing powder for the machine.
The Pouch B & B is well positioned to take in the view of Australian kangaroos in a quiet and natural bush setting. There is abundant bird life here and yes the odd cheeky kookaburra too. The front deck of the cottage has sufficient undercover area that even on a rainy day you can still stand outside and listen to the rain as it falls upon the water. Meet Queenie the large white and orange koi fish, she is a beauty. Once inside The Pouch you will be amazed at how quiet it is. We have furnished the cottage with our guests comfort in mind. We love it here and we feel you will fall in love with The Pouch as well. There is definately something very special, spiritual or even magical about this unique location. I cannot imagine living anywhere else in the whole world. The Moonee beach area has some strong aboriginal history and it is not difficult to see why native Australian people enjoyed living in this location. A special and memorable place where you can relax and unwind. We wish you an enjoyable stay.
