Original Boatshed Right On Waters Edge
 Perfect  For Two 
- Can Sleep Four -
 

This stunning boatshed has been fully restored with warmth, character & style in abundance. The open-plan living area is complimented with massive barn doors that slide open right at the waters edge. Timber floors and rough-hewn beams recall its boatshed origins, whilst the free standing sandstone fireplace and cosy day beds, invite you to recline in luxurious comfort. 
Outside, the wrap around timber deck with both deck chairs & dining table, extends right to the waters edge....the perfect place to watch the tide , the moon & the sun rise.
