Are there sea views?
Are there ever! The cottages all look in slightly different directions, each having nearly 180 degree views. Huge picture windows enable you to enjoy the changing colours of the sea and mountain views from the comfort of the living area, or from your bedroom first thing in the morning. Another fantastic perspective is gained when sitting outside on the decking.
Which cottage has the best view?
All the cottages have stunning views looking out over coastal bush to the waters of Corner Inlet and the mountains on the other side.
Is the accommodation in separate buildings?
Yes, each cottage is a free standing building.
How far apart are the cottages?
The three cottages are 20m to 30m away from each other and separated by established shrubs to provide privacy.
Do all the cottages have a wood fire?
Yes, all the cottages have a wood heater and the fire will be laid ready for you to light. In cooler weather we will have lit the fire so that the cottage is warm for your arrival. In case you are not used to using a wood heater, we will explain how to operate it and there are photographic instructions for re-lighting the fire in the Information Folder. As an alternative to the wood heater, the cottages have reverse-cycle air conditioning.
Do the cottages have spas?
No, our cottages don’t have spas. We made the decision not to install spas in line with our desire for environmental sustainability. Our only source of water is rainfall which we catch and store on-site.
If we had installed spas it may have been necessary to buy additional water from our nearest town of Foster and we chose not to add extra pressure on their water storage. In addition, our local Shire requires us to keep all our waste water within our own fence lines. Even though we have 2.5 acres/1 hectare, the extra water used by spas would have made our garden very wet during times of higher rainfall.
Is there a coffee plunger in the cottage?
Yes there is a coffee plunger, and a complimentary pack of ground coffee for your enjoyment.
Is breakfast included in the tariff?
We provide tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper, but as the cottages are fully self-contained you will need to bring all your own food. If you wish to shop locally, our closest town of Foster has excellent food shopping. There are two supermarkets which are open every day. The Foster butcher, Prom Meats sells Gippsland Natural Beef, the seafood shop sells locally caught fish (payment by cash only), and Aherns is an excellent fruit and vegetable market. The butcher, fish shop and fruit and vegetable market are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and Saturday from 8.30am to 12 noon.
How close is Limosa Rise to the Prom?
You can see the northern mountains of the Prom from the cottages, and it will take you about 5 minutes to drive from Limosa Rise to the entrance of Wilsons Prom. As the Prom is very large (50,000 hectares) it will then take about 25 minutes to drive to Tidal River (the camping ground). However, you don’t need to go all the way into Tidal River to enjoy some great walks and beaches. There are excellent Parks Vic notes available describing the short walks you can do.
How will we get the key to the cottage?
We live on-site, so will be here to greet you on your arrival.
Will we have mobile phone reception?
Mobile phone reception can be patchy in this area, and can depend on your service provider, however we enjoy good reception with most service providers. If you are having difficulty using your mobile phone in the cottage, it may simply be necessary to step outside the building or move to another position. If you have an important phone call to make or receive, we will be happy to assist with our landline.
Will we have internet access?
Yes – all of our cottages have internet access. Just ask at reception for the password.
