A cheese board and cheese knife is also in the cabin if you'd like to prepare a yummy platter to snack on while you enjoy your stay. Help yourself to our herb garden if you're preparing a salad to go with your BBQ dinner. The BBQ is yours to use as you wish, we have provided BBQ tools and everything you need to clean up afterwards.

Figtree Bungalow is located in our backyard. Simply follow the footpath up to the backyard, your private entry is via the back gate (you will have to navigate a number of steps to get to the cabin as the cabin is significantly above street level). Once you've arrived and settled in, sit back and relax on your own private deck amongst the trees.

We have travelled extensively and know what we do and don't like about accommodation we have previously stayed in. This is why we take real pride and care in offering accommodation that people immediately feel comfortable and relaxed in. Ensuring you arrive to an extremely clean, tidy and fresh place to stay is our top priority.

Listen out for the kookaburras, cockatoos, king parrots, lorikeets and various other bird-life as you relax on your spacious timber deck, equipped with a six seater outdoor table and chairs in a family friendly environment. You may even spot our blue tongue lizard if he/she decides to pop out to say hello! Stay during October and November and you'll be treated to the gorgeous and vibrant purple flowers of the Jacaranda tree as it's in full bloom at this time of year.

There are 4 windows fitted with fly screens and blinds to provide a breeze, as well as ensuring you have your privacy.
