House Details

Carramar at Marcus

Carramar at Marcus accommodates seven people in two queen and three single beds over three generous sized bedrooms, each with adjoining verandah. Set just one street back from the soft sandy dog off-leash beach, the sounds of the ocean fill the house through the verandah doors and the mature shady gardens keep the home naturally cool.


verandahA floating staircase leads to the first floor where polished wooden floors run throughout. With high curved ceilings in the living room and a large port-hole window on the landing, Carramar was architecturally designed with its stunning location in mind to maximise both the natural light and the sea breezes.

From the top of the stairs, where a powder room is located, the hallway leads to the galley style kitchen, which is very well appointed, including a microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen overlooks the dining room, which has an overhead fan. The living room is very comfortable with two large sofas and armchairs, bay windows overlooking the back garden and an overhead fan. A digital TV/DVD player and CD stereo are housed in the entertainment unit and there is a selection of DVD’s and CD’s in the library for your use. A small selection of books and a wide range of beach, board and card games are also available for your enjoyment.

Two comfortable sofas with tables are the main focus of the adjoining verandah. Being almost level with the top of the trees it’s an idyllic place to relax and talk with friends, whilst watching native birds and butterflies. A gas BBQ and extension table are also housed on this good sized verandah.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and an en suite bathroom with shower and foldaway laundry basket. Leading from the bedroom is a private verandah with security screened double doors. This is the perfect place to start the day, as it overlooks the leafy back garden towards the ocean. Four large built-in cupboards, an overhead fan, a digital TV/DVD player and a CD player/radio complete this quiet adult space.


Queen BedroomThe twin bedroom is a lovely bright room with large mirrored double cupboards and is located on the ground floor. A large verandah is accessed through double security screened doors and there is further security on the window in this room, which enables it to be left open, so that guests can not only gain maximum benefit from the coastal air but drift off to sleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean.

The queen bedroom is a very spacious room and is located on the ground floor with a wonderful outlook over the back garden through bay windows. A queen size bed is the main focus of the room but when you need to accommodate an extra person, there is a single rollaway bed under the queen bed. A built in cupboard and separate chest of drawers again offers ample space for your personal belongings. Access to the large verandah is through a security screened door. This verandah is a shared space with the twin bedroom.

Both the twin and queen bedrooms have recently been upgraded and now have full security on all windows and doors and the carpets have been removed and replaced with gorgeous timber flooring throughout (new photos will be posted on the website soon).

The main bathroom has double hand-basins with a bath, shower and toilet. It is a large room to accommodate all ground floor guests. The windows in this room are again security screened to give the room as much ventilation as possible.

The ground floor verandah houses a table and chairs and is a popular place for kids to play a board game together. As the verandah has access to the back garden it is an ideal area to leave your dog/s when you are out getting a bite to eat or shopping, as they can stay dry and warm but still have access to the garden to explore when they are in the mood for a ‘sniff’!

The garden is a young rainforest styled garden and there is an in-ground watering system that automatically comes on in the mornings twice a week. Please ensure that you do not turn the garden tap off as this will disrupt the system.

There is a fully equipped laundry with washing machine, dryer, laundry baskets, pegs and a portable clothes drying rack. There is a Hills Hoist in the back garden and further clothes line can be found under cover in the good sized double car port. A second fridge/freezer is located under the stairs which can easily be used as a drinks fridge or to keep your pets food or fishing bait cool and fresh and a second kettle for tea and coffee making facilities is kept on top of this fridge for the convenience of those guests who are sleeping downstairs.

• There are fishing rod hooks for those keen fishermen and women under the ground floor verandah
