Property Description

With its name, ‘The Cottage’ and its resemblance to a small child’s drawing of a house our latest Churchhaven find is simplicity itself.  Not a bell or whistle in sight, this home’s glory is in its location – set within the original ‘Churchhaven’ village, tucked under the lee of the hill behind it and offering complete protection from the South-Easter wind.

For many of us, the year of COVID has bought a new appreciation of life’s simple pleasures – and here is a place where that is what’s on offer.  Days that start with coffee brewed on the stove, then a meander to the beach for a morning spent frolicking in the lagoon’s warm waters.

Return, sandy-footed, to The Cottage for a wholesome lunch, then take a walk into the reserve and check out the incredible biodiversity of the flora and fauna of the West Coast National Park.  Or take a siesta… days move at a pace we all long to embrace yet so rarely get the chance.

The startling turquoise lagoon with its flocks of pink flamingos make it hard to feel anything but a deep appreciation of Mother Nature’s bounty in this spot… the natural beauty that surrounds you is constantly uplifting.

The Cottage is a place of reconnection with those you love, where evenings are gently illuminated by firelight and oil lamp and guitars and song provide the acoustic soundscape.  Eat, drink and make merry under the stars.
