Captains Rest

captains rest
Captains Rest is our special spot for two. Our bed looks out the antique windows to the old jetty and the still water — has a deep bath with unlimited hot water. She's cosy with everything we need to luxuriate, and the nectar wood stove keeps us cosy. As featured in publications around the world, including Country Style, Real Living, Home Beautiful, Good Weekend Magazine, Living ETC UK, Design Sponge, Conde Nast Traveller and Milk Decoration. Captains Rest is all yours, and the space around it is shared by all our fellow shack owners. Sometimes the area around our shack is quiet, sometimes it's a hive of fishing, photography, boat building and community. Other things that are important to note, Captains Rest is not suitable for children or pets due to the delicate nature of its furnishings, and the hazards of the water out front. We also only have a step in the bath — so this property might not suit those who prefer to shower or have mobility issues. You can follow both our guests and our personal stays on our Instagram @captainsrest
