Peaceful, air-con well-fitted and stocked kitchen, fully self contained cabin close to the back of my house. The Cabin has verandahs on 2 sides, overlooks rainforest. 2km from Charlestown Sq or Westfield Kotara-both have restaurants & cinemas! The famous Fernleigh Track 200m along a bush track. Cycle 13km to the Lake or 2km-Westfield. 15min drive to Newcastle CBD. Bushwalks & beaches nearby! Smart TV. Netflix. Unlimited Wifi (NBN).

The space
Everyone agrees that the Magic Cabin is great value for a peaceful , air cond, completely self-contained cottage with verandahs on two sides, overlooking and set in rainforest and mature organic Permaculture gardens developed over 30yrs with a focus on Wildlife habitat (NOT a farm - no 'pet' animals). It really doesn't feel like you are so close to the city!
The kitchen has an Electric Frypan, Microwave oven, electric jug, plug-in double hotplate stove, a toaster and a plug-in Convection Oven and a full-size fridge stocked with some essentials (my home-made organic muesli, fresh fruit, butter, eggs, condiments, milk, etc). In addition to teas, coffees, and organic Cacao, I keep the kitchen stocked with basics like rice, flour, noodles, cooking oil, and Cow, Soy and Rice long-life milks, etc. Gluten-free bread and other breads are in the freezer to make toast. I make home-made organic muesli for you - with organic goodies: almonds, pepitas, sunflower, Chia and sesame seeds, sultanas, dates, oats, etc.

The Cabin has a bedroom (with wardrobe, queen bed), bathroom (shower and toilet, hair dryer), fully equipped kitchen (with full-size fridge, etc), and dining/living areas where there is a fold out lounge that can sleep 2 extra people. NOTE: If you book for only 2 people but want the extra bed made up, there is a cash charge of $20 on arrival, to cover cleaning please.
There is also an iron and ironing board and you have a private clothesline on one side of the verandah.

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.

There is unlimited internet NBN 24/7. Netflix password is dragon1

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.

The Magic Cabin is close to everything!
• 2km to major CBD of Charlestown (Charlestown Square) or Westfield, Kotara,
• Many restaurants, clubs, Tapas, Pizza, Markets, etc.
• Close to many beautiful sandy Beaches
• 15 mins drive to Newcastle CBD,
• 19 mins to Newcastle University (longer in heavy traffic).
• Whale watching, dolphins, vineyards.
• Boating activities, fishing.


Great Fun includes: surfing, ocean swimming pools (Merewether and Newcastle ocean Baths-free), fishing, sailing, kayaking, bushwalking, or wine appreciation in the nearby Hunter Valley.

Nearest train station is Broadmeadow (8min drive away). Buses are a short walk away (322 bus and any bus that travels along the Pacific Hwy which is a short walk away). I might be able to pick you up - just ask : )
Williamtown (Newcastle) Airport is 35-45 min drive away and may be expensive in a taxi. I can pickup/dropoff for $40 cash if you make arrangements.

During your stay

I will try to be home to show you in. After that I leave you to your privacy. Unless you would like to go for a bush walk - I'm often keen on that!
