From the first-floor verandah you gaze over a thick carpet of orange Brazilian creeper, across eight acres of mature garden, down the hill framed by the branches of widely-spaced gum trees to the Bermagui River and Jaggers Bay below. Bimbimbi has about an acre of river frontage at the bottom of the property.....

.... It’s pretty perfect actually. Beverley and Peter have taken the big step of leaving the rat race in Melbourne for a seaside life in this quirky, rambling, charming 1940s farmhouse. Now they chew the fat with their guests, eat fresh oysters, fish for flathead and king dory from Bermagui Harbour, tend a sheep and a cow, bring the great old garden back into line, restore the dry stone walls, feed the rosellas and parrots. All this is at your disposal as guests of course. You either take the apartment complete with enormous bedroom, sitting-room, kitchen, pantry and direct access to the verandah - surely one of the most enticing breakfasting spots in the country - or the garden room downstairs which is the Brays’ own favourite. You can self-cater, but a full, never-boring breakfast is provided every day with quiche, yoghurt, home-made bread, local cheeses etc. I imagine taking the place for a week and digging in. (That’s what Billy Connolly did!) 2 km to beach. Enquire about kids. Self-catering cottage also available.
