Elephant Rest Forest Cottage - Place of Tranquil surrounds
Elephant Rest Forest Cottage was established in 2011. The cosy, open plan wooden cottage was built by my husband Brett, a perfectionist in his trade thus creating a light  and airy, solid, yet charming 3 bedroomed cottage.

Why visit?
Elephant Rest Forest Cottage is situated at the edge of indigenous forest, a quiet, tranquil getaway, private, as there is only 1 unit. A large private garden ensures family gatherings to be fun as is the cottage, so suited for family getaways as it can sleep up to 6 comfortably and can be pushed to 8 as we can provide good mattresses for the extra family members.
We are in close proximity to forest, rivers, safe beaches and great resturant's, yet quiet and surrounded by the beauty of nature. A place to truly unwind from city life, relax and refresh.
We can arrange  aromatherapy massage by Forest Massage in the comfort of the cottage. We also offer T-shirt painting for the children.

What we offer
The cottage is fully equipped with the following items to ensure an easy and comfortable stay: 
Micowave, gas top, small stove, dvd player, tv, a small selection of books, a sand pit with toys for kiddies, T-shirt painting, ensuite shower/loo/sink, a bath/loo/sink, 2 double beds, 2 single beds, extra mattresses, a huge deck to relax on, have dinner on, pet friendly by arrangement, wheelchair friendly, open plan kitchen, lounge, dining room.
