ABOUT BIRDSONG

Set in a tranquil forest glade just 200 metres from the Maitland Bay Track,  Birdsong is the perfect base for exploring beautiful Bouddi National Park and hiking the Bouddi Coastal Walk.

 

 Birdsong is a quality built home, with luxurious living spaces spilling graciously into a colourful garden and resort-style pool shared with the owners. Designed to be a cocooning space for a couple hiding away as much as a place for families or groups of friends to enjoy quality time away together, Birdsong will charm you with it's relaxed, comfortable and elegant spaces.

After a day enjoying some of the best bushwalks, kayaking, mountain biking and beaches in the region from right outside the door, you can cool off in the pool, or cozy up by the fire depending on the time of year.

Birdsong accommodates 6 in great comfort with 2 large bedrooms (one king with ensuite, and one queen) both opening onto a courtyard garden, and an extensive upstairs studio with king bed, home theatre area and deck overlooking the pool area.


The main living areas open out almost completely though bifold doors into the garden adjoining the pool area. With abundant birdlife all about in the woodland setting, Birdsong feels like a retreat. On rainy days there is the library of books, the home theatre with Apple TV, Netflix, Stan, high-speed wifi, and many games. Curling up in one of the bay window areas or in the hammock with a good magazine or a book is a pleasure to be treasured.


The fully featured kitchen with gas appliances, quality cookware and abundant cutlery, crockery and utensils is great for entertaining and there is plenty of space both inside and out to enjoy your meals and drinks.

 

Parking is convenient, with space both within the gates of the property and plenty of uncrowded parking on the street outside.  For Tesla owners, there is also Destination Charging available.
