A beachfront hideaway perched in the sand dunes overlooking the Freycinet Mountains. Set in the middle of the East Coast food and wine trail, on a deserted nine mile beach in five acres of wild garden, IdleWild is the essence of the Aussie beach shack with comfortable and colourful accommodation, a wood fire and a cook’s kitchen. Pet and family-friendly, there is an a fenced off acre around the house for pets, as well as an outdoor bath, beach bikes and streaming television services. Idlewild's dramatic setting is both invigorating and soothing. The ceaseless charge of the ocean crashing on to the beach metres from the house, seabirds whirling and diving creates a spectacular, wild and mesmerising feast for the senses. If you can take your eyes off the view, take one of our beach bikes to ride the beach and later enjoy a local glass of bubbly by the cosy wood stove. There are five acres of wild native gardens, three comfortable double bedrooms, a cook's kitchen, wood stove, beach bikes and freedom to do as you please. Overlooking the Freycinet Mountains, IdleWild is a perfect base to explore Wineglass Bay whilst enjoying the restaurants, wineries and amenities around Swansea.
