ALLAWAH  truly epitomises holiday living by the waters edge. A series of bifold doors both in the living space and in the master bedroom open out to embrace the river. The open plan living space guarantees river views of the river.

The master bedroom with its own balcony is the perfect spot to laze away with a coffee or a good book. The second bedroom is smaller with a double bed and tranquil views to the rear rainforest garden.

Both the lounge & the main bedroom have reverse cycle air conditioning/heating. There is also a wood fired combustion pot belly for an ambient fire on the cooler evenings. Bring a bag or two of wood from the service station, we provide kindling, paper & firelighters.

The kitchen dining living is open plan. The  newly renovated  kitchen is very well equipped with gas cooktop, electric oven, fridge / freezer, breville coffee machne, single drawer dishwasher and a webber hooded BBQ on outside deck. The lounge area has a multi channel smart screen plus extensive DVD library.

Outside there are lawns & terraces for relaxation and 2 SIT ON TOP KAYAKS with lifejackets for exploring the river shoreline. The sandy river beach is tidal, so perfect for taking a dip on the high tide.
