Fern Cottage - Tranquility At Your Doorstep

Romantic vacation home in Wye River
Nestled amongst the gums on the corner of The Boulevard and Karingal Avenue in Wye River, Fern Cottage is absolutely charming. Neat and incredibly well maintained, this weatherboard beach home overlooks a peaceful fern gully that gently slopes towards the ocean. Tranquil sounds of the birdlife, trickling water, crashing waves combine in harmony. The home itself is two story offering open plan living downstairs and two lofted bedrooms flanking the lofted ceiling above. Other features include a cosy wood fire, filtered ocean views, wrap around balcony and all the coastal character you expect from a cottage by the sea. Add in the short stroll down to the Wye River beach, Pub and General Store and you'll find Fern Cottage has all the qualities of a magical getaway. **Property is pet friendly although does not have fences** STRICT NO PARTY POLICY (SCHOOLIES, HENS, BUCKS etc.) SEE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

3/5 Okay

Lovely location
Wye River is such a special spot, and this house is in a wonderful location. We really enjoyed our stay, doing lots of walks. The house is tidy, the beds very comfortable and it was toasty warm with the wood fire. The photos aren’t fully accurate as the place is quite small and there is little storage. The furnishings and linen are a little old, but that didn’t bother us. Providing a few small extras to make pausing guests feel a little more welcome would be a nice touch to round out a good stay. Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

Bush haven by the sea
This cottage was perfect for our family. Ideally located within the bush, which made it peaceful and private, with views of the sea. Wye River walks are stunning and the sea was refreshing, but bring a wetsuit! Abundant wildlife too - echidnas, koalas, birds and reptiles. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. Would love to come back one day.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful and relaxed
Property was clean and well maintained, in a very quiet and green area. Loved the views of both trees and ocean.
