Tawarri at Nelson is a beautiful, recently renovated, limestone studio situated on an acre of quiet and secluded natural bushland.
Tawarri at Nelson is just 100 metres from the beautiful Glenelg River, and 300 metres from Simsons Landing boat ramp and river beach. It is right next to the Lower Glenelg National Park, and the Great South West Walk passes directly in front of the property. The pristine beaches of Discovery Bay and the Glenelg River mouth are just 4 kilometres away - both are a "must see".
The studio has great character, with a lofty vaulted ceiling and private verandah/courtyard, and is perfect for couples. The open plan living area includes lounge chairs, a TV, DVD player and reverse-cycle air-conditioning. The well-equipped kitchen includes hotplates, a microwave and a range of electrical appliances - in fact pretty well everything guests could possibly need. The superior bathroom has a large extra deep bath from where bushland views can be enjoyed, and the sublime meditation house (a unique round building nestled into the bushland garden 30 metres away), is available for guests to use for yoga, mediation, or just a quiet place to relax. Please note that there is no Wi-Fi.
There is a queen size bed in the studio, and two camp beds and linen in the cupboard which can be set up in the cottage or in the meditation house. The meditation house has no power, so torches or lanterns are a must. All linen and towels are provided.
The local wildlife is literally on your doorstep, where kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, possums, and even an occasional emu can be seen from the doorstep. Tawarri at Nelson is home to a large family of sugar gliders, which can often be seen on dusk flying off the roof of the meditation house for a nights foraging.
A well-stocked shop in the town centre is open 7 days a week for your convenience and the local pub does excellent counter meals and has a friendly, inclusive atmosphere.
Tawarri at Nelson provides peaceful, secluded comfortable living, which is ideal for bush walking, bird watching, fishing, canoeing, cycling or simply retreating from a busy life.
Our no pet policy respects the native wildlife. Please be sure to make contact to discuss your needs.
