Rikkara is an architect designed family friendly beach house on 25 acres of Australian eucalypt forest on the stunning NSW south coast, offering total privacy and tranquility. A short private bush track leads to secluded Armand's beach.
How often do you get to have a whole Australian forest to yourself?
A short 5 minute walk from the house down our bush track takes you to secluded and stunning Armand's Bay beach (which is clothes optional). If that's not for you, it is another very short walk from Armand's to the equally beautiful and secluded beach on Barragga Bay, which is very family friendly, and then on to stunning Cuttagee surf beach. There are so many magical beaches within a few minutes drive of the house, that its hard to pick.
Expansive windows from the house provide uninterrupted views of natural bush and ocean glimpses to the east, with louvers to catch the sea breeze. This property offers total seclusion with no distractions.
The property is a wildlife haven. You are bathed in birdsong all day, and will find wallabies and kangaroos on the property, often grazing near the house in the early evening, as well as lyre birds, and the odd goanna. Our last trip to the house in October coincided with the whale migration period so we saw whale mums and their calves breaching just off the beach at Cuttagee. Magical.
Plenty of firewood is kept at the house for you to use in the wood-burner, just in case of cooler evenings.
