The SpaceEveryone agrees that the Magic Cabin is great value for a peaceful (note: no TV!), air conditioned, completely self contained cottage with verandahs on two sides, overlooking and set in rainforest and organic gardens. And yet, it really doesn't feel like you are so close to the city!
I keep the kitchen stocked with basics like rice, flour, noodles, cooking oil, different kinds of long-life milks, etc.
I make home-made organic muesli for you - with organic almonds, pepitas, sunflower and sesame seeds, sultanas, dates, oats, etc. Fruit and eggs in the fridge, organic butter, gluten free bread and other breads in the freezer to make toast.
The Cabin has a bedroom (with wardrobe, queen bed), bathroom (shower and toilet), fully equipped kitchen (with full-size fridge, etc), and dining/living areas where there is a double fold out lounge that can sleep up to 2 extra people).
Situated at the end of a quiet no-through street, on a hill overlooking a nature sanctuary rainforest gully and organic gardens. You can enjoy the morning sun and wildlife from the verandahs that wrap the north and eastern sides of the Cabin.
The kitchen has a Microwave oven, electric jug, double hotplate stove, a toaster and an electric frypan and a full-size fridge stocked with some essentials (muesli, fresh fruit, eggs, condiments, milk, etc).
There is also an iron and ironing board and you have a private clothesline on one side of the verandah.
We have had many people thank us that there is no TV. However we understand that some people may find this unusual.
There is unlimited internet access 24/7.
We share the garden with a large variety of friendly lizards, birdlife and other native creatures. Margaret Springs and Glenrock State Conservation Area connect to the rear of our property.
Just behind the gully is the famous Fernleigh Tunnel and cycleway that goes about 13km through bushland from the city to Lake Macquarie. There are also fabulous bush walks through rainforest, past waterfalls and coastal heathlands to beautiful sandy beaches and lagoons.
