“UTSIKT" is Swedish for an outlook & from the first floor level there are expansive distant views & ocean glimpses, northward over village & along Currarong Bight towards Sydney & further westward.
Only 400m walk from Currarong's main beaches, this modern two storey duplex holiday house soaks in the winter sun; to the rear is dense native forest; rich habitat for birds & wildlife incl. our resident grey kangaroo population - look for them in the street in the evening & early the mornings.

Currarong is a true birdwatcher/nature-lover's paradise .... & as the block backs onto pristine native forest at rear, wildlife is commonplace.....from grey kangaroos on the front lawn at night & early mornings to feeding Kookaburras, Lorikeets & Bower Birds on the front balcony by day.

"CURRARONG UTSIKT" is the north facing two storey home in a block of two. The entry door is along the western side (on right) with dedicated off street parking on the concrete driveway to the eastern side (on left). The rear property 36B, "CURRARONG VILA" is rented separately & faces southward into the forest with entry along the eastern side (on left)

Designed to solar passive principles, by a renowned Swedish architect & built in 2007 to replace a small derelict fisherman's cottage on the site, the brief was to retain the style & character of the original dwelling

With specially engineered & concealed raked ceilings, internally free of supports to maximise light & space; positioned to capture the warmth of the winter sun whilst shaded to exclude summer's heat & capture cooling breezes, this unique property is styled & appointed in a manner to ensure your next holiday is as relaxed & care-free as possible

For your convenience, opening windows & sliding doors to both levels are insect screened

UPSTAIRS - polished timber floors; comfortable & hygienic:
The upper level is floored in local hardwood timbers & flooded with natural light from full width highlight windows along both sides. Devoted entirely to an open plan kitchen, dining & living, the building's ceiling is engineered to follow within the roof line, cleverly creating a concealed raked ceiling totally free of internal supports, subtly increasing height & space within. Accessed through full glass sliding doors, the all weather entertaining deck has distant views & ocean glimpses, northwards up the coastline, over the village of Currarong. Fully roofed for all-weather usage, this elevated deck is furnished with a slatted sun bench, Weber gas BBQ & long slatted table with folding chairs to comfortably seat 8

This large open plan room upstairs is easily serviced by the two ceiling fans plus a reverse-cycle Air-Con wall unit located high on the rear wall above the kitchen bench - the remote control unit can be found on the wall beside the refrigerator along with broom, mop & bucket.

KITCHEN:
Appliances have been chosen for their simplicity, durability & .... ease of use.
However, should you require any additional information, please read the manuals in the folder located in the cupboard directly above the fridge.
In this same cupboard you will also find a large cane picnic basket, available for your use when exploring the many glorious surrounding beaches in our area.

Located above/below the sink are eco friendly, allergy-free cleaning products; machine dishwasher powder, dishwashing liquid, QV hand-wash liquid, dishwashing brushes, sponges, insect spray, bin liner bags, etc.
Further along, is a dishwasher, ceramic top cooktop & underbench oven.

Large & medium sized oven bags for easy clean-free oven use are located in the drawers close beside - along with cutlery, oven mitts, placemats, cutting boards & most cooking equipment needed to prepare meals; incl. saucepans, skillets, pie & casserole dishes, stick blender, mix master, hand whisk, spatulas, rolling pin, cake forms, cling wrap, foil, baking paper, etc.
NB: ceramic cooktop is not suitable for wok, deep-fry & stir-fry cooking.

Above bench cupboards are stocked with glassware & crockery in settings of eight or more.

The Island Bench unit with worktop & drawers below (adjacent to dining table) have purposefully been kept empty for guest use..... for anything special you may have brought with you (& hopefully making it easier for you to organise & pack-up when leaving, too). Atop this unit is also a microwave, electric kettle, coffee grinder, coffee & tea plunger & cook-top espresso maker.
Also (provided in basic quantities) is: cooking salt, salt & black pepper grinders, black & green tea bags, real coffee beans, sugar, olive oil, white & red wine vinegar, napkins.

The vacuum cleaner, iron & portable ironing board can be found in the pantry cupboards to the far left side, along with more cookware, saucepans etc.

FIRE SAFETY:
In case of fire, a portable fire extinguisher is located on the floor beside the refrigerator & a fire blanket located in the cupboard directly above.

DINING:
A large oak extension dining table with 6 ladder-back dining chairs provide for comfortable dining (additional folding chairs are supplied).

LIVING:
Includes a large square antique coffee table, pair of 3 seater fabric lounges, 2 fabric easy chairs & a low open book/ entertainment shelf unit running along most of the side wall with space for books & magazines.
A flat screen television sits on this unit:

Press: 2 for ABC2; 356 for Prime7; 8 for Win9 & 5 for channel 10.
Alternatively press 'P' up & down to change programs.
DVD: Using the white remote control device; turn on TV as above & then press 'Source' - the screen will show 'component 2'.
Turn on the DVD player by pressing the red 'power' button on the grey remote control device. Load the DVD & press 'play'.
When you want to watch TV again, simply press 2, 356, 6, 7, or 5 on the white remote control device for the desired channel.

Additionally, an HDMI cable is connected to the flat screen TV - use this with your laptop to play DVD's etc. direct from your laptop.

INTERNET / Wi-Fi: is complimentary & router is located on the benchtop, beside the TV. Username & password are underneath.
Nb: though NBN (fast broadband) is fully connected, it can often be slow & sometimes intermittent, especially during holiday season & peak periods (Welcome to Australia).

BBQ*: A gas BBQ is located on the covered upstairs balcony & is also easy to use.
Turn the gas on at the gas bottle. Then start the BBQ by turning the start dial to 'Start/Hi' & then press the red button. Cooking will be quicker & more even by leaving the lid down.
After BBQ-ing, turn off both the gas bottle & the BBQ to 'Off'.
Please use the provided steel brush to clean the grill plate (easiest when still hot). apart from cleaning, this will also serve to reduce fat/grease build-up, thus reducing risk of fire caused by flare-ups.
When the gas bottle is empty, a replacement bottle can be found behind the green metal gate (western side of building), right side of yellow entry door.
*SAFETY REMINDER:
When using the BBQ: it is essential that you scrape clean the grill after each use with provided tools to prevent fat & grease build-ups, thus reducing the likelihood of fire caused by flare-ups.

Currarong, Nueva Gales del Sur, Australia

CURRARONG is a sun-drenched beachside village nestled securely in the lee of the Beecroft Peninsular, protected from southerly winds allowing for pleasant swimming all year round - yes, even in winter......the locals can often be heard saying...."the sun always shines over Currarong"
Originally a small fishing village, is divided by a tidal creek & surrounded by pristine waters, long sandy beaches, sheltered coves and inlets. A sleepy little place for most of the year, Currarong becomes a vibrant holiday hub during summer and Easter breaks.

Gorgeous, unique over-the-water sunsets, fantastic views & a myriad of bird & animal life make Currarong a truly memorable place to visit.

With hanging swamps, ancient banksias, hidden forests, aboriginal caves & middens, tidal creeks, estuaries, soaring vertical cliffs, rocky headlands, etc. surrounded by the Jervis Bay Marine Park, Currarong topography is so special & varied as to provide habitat for flora & fauna of important biological significance - all connected by various easy walking trails. Not to forget of course, some of the most beautiful sand, rock & bay beaches to be found anywhere in the world.

Geographically, Currarong is additionally special in that the village & several of it's closest beaches unusually face back towards the west over the open ocean (as if on an island) providing spectacular over-the-water sunsets - otherwise not possible elsewhere on the Australian east coast.

WHALE WATCHING:
Humpback Whales visit the region annually during the migration seasons of June/July when they are heading north to calve & again in October/November when cows seek the safety of Currarong's bays to nurse & rest their new season calves on their return south to the Antarctic.
There are plenty of fantastic vantage points from which to view the whales, with the very best often right in front of Currarong Village (sometimes so close as to see their large grey eyes looking curiously back).
Whale numbers have risen substantially in the past few years making this area a premier whale watching spot. Whale watching cruises usually set out from Huskinson, in Jervis Bay, a 15 minute drive to Minola & ferry across in summer months or a half hour drive back to the highway at other times.
Watch out for seabirds, sea eagles, seals, dolphins & penguins all year round. Currarong truly is a photographers paradise !

BEACHES:
The famous white sand beaches of jervis bay are at Huskisson & Vincentia & will require a 45 minute drive back to the highway in order to reach. However, there are several equally stunning Jervis Bay beaches & attractions (Cabbage Tree, Honey Moon Bay, Point Perpendicular, The Lighthouse, etc) easily accessible & just a few minutes drive, through the Rangers Station at the beginning of town.



Abraham's Bosom Beach is undoubtedly the locals favourite; a sheltered beach all year round; perfect for young children & great for snorkelling. There are also several modern gas BBQ's for public use, just behind the beach at the car park.

15 minutes walk further on into the Beecroft Peninsular reserve will take you to the unspoiled oasis of Honeysuckle Point or Lobster Rock. Both sheltered beaches are great for snorkelling, fishing & during quieter times, provide you with your own private little hideaway.
Cycle, jog or take a leisurely stroll through the bush tracks to the impressive cliffs, rock formations and fantastic views at Gosangs Tunnel, Mermaid’s Inlet & the Beecroft Headland. Great vantage points to see the Humpback Whales as they migrate North and South. Other whale species can also been seen from these vantage points.

Warrain Beach, a classic long surf beach is just 400 m walk away, is north facing & offers great surfing, kayaking & paddleboarding (hireable during holiday season).
One can snorkel any of the many small rocky headlands protruding from the beaches & even snorkel the wreck of the Merimbula or Plutus, both close to the shore.
Dolphins frequent all these areas, often cruising & feeding close in.

There is excellent fishing from all beaches & rocks surrounding Currarong & several ramps to launch a boat.
Great spots for scuba diving as well.


GENERAL:

There are 2 playgrounds for young children, the one at Dolphin Point across from the shop, affording fantastic views of Warrain Beach and looking as far out as Culburra & Mt Coolangatta beyond.

Zac’s café/restaurant offers local seafood & oysters, some caught fresh on the day.
Bookings are recommended during peak holiday times.
Zac’s also provide take away meals, a general store (basic staples only) & bottle shop.

The local Bowling Club is open 7 days & serves Chinese / Australian food as an alternative.

The Progress Hall has Bingo 2 or 3 nights a week during peak holiday times & is otherwise available for private hire, very reasonably for your special occasion.

The local tennis courts, basketball court, skate park & 2nd children's playground are just 100 m behind the general store; opposite the boat ramp.

The local craft shop is open several days a week for browsing & purchasing unique local handicrafts.
