Looking for the perfect holiday accommodation near Moruya, Tuross Heads or Batemans Bay?
Imagine relaxing comfortably and surrounded by nature in our spacious and modern home on 5 acres of bushland.
If you love holidaying on the south coast, you'll love Bingie Corner!
Chill on the decks
Room for the family
Bingie Corner has extensive decks on both the front and back of the house. It means there is always a sunny - or a shady - spot to relax, read a book, or drink something lovely. A Weber barbeque is located on the front deck with six piece dining setting.
Main pavilion living area
Great for the family
The main living area is a great place to snuggle on the couch. There is a combustion heater fireplace, tv, dvd and cd player. There are overhead fans for summer time. Wifi will let you run your own Netflix account to the TV.
Cook up a storm
Our kitchen has an induction cooktop (super fast), easy to use oven, dishwasher and large fridge. There is also a walk in pantry that is stocked with basics including tea, coffee, sugar, and sauces.
Sun drenched space
The master bedroom is comfortably furnished with a queen size bed and side tables and looks out to the valley. It has a walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom and ceiling fans.
* Note, you will need to bring your own linen and towels to Bingie Corner. Doonas and pillows are supplied.
Easy meal space
To be honest, when we are at Bingie, we tend to take most of our meals outside on the decks. But the inside dining area is comfortable and seats four.
Comfortable and quiet
The second bedroom in the main pavillion has a queen size bed and side tables and it's own smaller wardrobe. It looks out to the back of the property.
A second living space
The second pavilion is a fully self-contained second living space. There is a queen sized bed in one room and two singles in the second.
Pavilion 2 Living
A second escape
Bingie Corner has a great two pavilion design. The second pavilion has its own television, and living area, plus small fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave and full large bathroom.
It's great option if you've got two families staying or if the kids want their own space.
Room for the family
The second pavilion has a very large bathroom - with a shower large enough for the whole family (if that's what you fancy).
Peaceful country setting
Located on 4.5 hectares
Enjoy the best of both country and beach. Acres of space and trees and you'll be able to hear the sea from the decks (if the birds don't drown it out!).
Everything you need to know
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about Bingie that our guests ask us!
Are you walking distance to the beach?
You can hear the beach from the property, but sadly, it is not walking distance. This is because we are on the edge of Eurobodalla National Park and a direct line to the beach is full of very, very rough bush. However, we're just a quick five minute drive (with zero parking hassles when you get there) to any one of five national park beaches. And we are located on five rural acres, so while you won't see the sea, you will see kangaroos, wallabys, abundant birdlife and maybe an echidna or possum so you get the best of both worlds.
Which beach is Bingie Corner near?
Bingie Corner is just a few minutes drive from five secluded national park beaches within Eurobodalla National Park. They are not patrolled and therefore should be swum with an eye to rips and undertow, but on the plus side, its rare to to share the beach with more than two or three other families. Our favourites are Bingie Beach to the left of Bingie Point, or when a strong northerly is blowing, the right hand side is also fair swimming. The best beach for families is Honeymoon Bay at Mullimburrah Point, while Cathedral Beach offers great rock exploring and some tidal pools.
Beaches at Moruya Heads and Tuross Heads are also close by, and there is lake swimming at Tuross.
Do you have wifi?
Yes, we have wifi! The password is attached to the fridge. (We've got kids. While we resisted for a long time, we've finally given in).
How will I get the key?
We keep the key within a security safe on the property and will share its location and the unique code for your visit when your booking is confirmed.
Can you organise a cleaning service for me?
Yes, absolutely. A cleaning service can be provided at a cost of $120. Please let us know when you book that you'd like to use this service.
Do you have a linen service?
Not really. Doonas, pillows and blankets are provided and we prefer that you bring your own linen and towels. It is sometimes possible to do a linen service with at least two weeks notice. (Basically, I have to beg my Mum to drive an hour up the coast to get the property ready, and then do the trip a second time to tidy up, so it requires much bribery and begging!). We do have some emergency sheets and pillow cases on hand but they are just old ones that have been retired so please don't judge!
Is there disabled access?
Officially, Bingie Corner does not have disabled access. The house is built on high foundations and there are four steps at the front of the property and a gravel path which can be difficult for wheelchairs. However, if you are able to navigate these obstacles, the house is very easy to negotiate and comfortable once you are "on board". The sliding doors have wide spreads, the decks are very wide and everything is on the same level. The second pavilion bathroom has a very large shower (although no rails) which can be wheeled into. We've had families with frail elderly parents have thoroughly enjoyable stays on the property.
What kind of cooking utensils should I bring?
Bingie Corner prides itself on its kitchen being ready for pretty much anything. I've stayed at holiday houses where plates, cups and knives and forks were about all you got and its driven me crazy. You'll find everything you need to cook up family feasts, including a large oven, induction cook top, crock pot/slow cooker and Weber barbeque. We've also got: paella pans, basic baking equipment, heaps of salad bowls and platters for cheese, wine glasses, champagne glasses, a cocktail set (and martini glasses), a hand blender, oyster shucker, mozzie coils, and quite a few home appliances that were once trendy but were so infrequently used, they've now got a new home. You'll also find salt, pepper, some olive oil and basic herbs and spices in the pantry. We ask that you replace anything you use. (that also goes for toilet rolls).
If we need to stock up, where should we go?
Moruya is the nearest major town to Bingie Corner and it has both a large Woolworths and an IGA supermarket, together (with bottle shops), petrol stations, cafes, banks, and a large Harris Scarfe department store. Both butchers are really good and there is a lovely green grocer called Southlands opposite the Caltex service station. For cafes we recommend the coffee 'hole in the wall' next to the post office, and the health food shop which does the best healthy breakfast in the area. The French patisserie in the IGA building is also excellent.
Do you have an open fireplace?
The main pavilion has a wood heater which will keep the entire pavilion warm. There is a gas heater in the second pavilion and both bedrooms have a small electric heater to take off the chill. The property is full of fallen timber, so it won't be hard to find kindling, but we recommend you buy some seasoned firewood at one of the service stations on your way through if you are staying in the colder months.
Can we bring our dog?
Well behaved dogs are welcome at Bingie Corner if they stay outside and sleep on the decks. Please note that we don't have any fences, so the property is not suitable if your dog is a runner. And note that we really do have a LOT of kangaroos, including very BIG grey bucks. Our (small) dogs chase the roos off the perimeter and then trot back happily, but if your dog is likely to chase the roos down, we really don't recommend they stay. We've had incidences where larger, faster dogs (greyhounds and staffies) have been very badly kicked and injured by the roos which can really ruin your holiday (and cause a horrendous vet bill!). The south coast is also notorious for paralysis ticks, so please ensure your dog is on a tick prevention medication such as Frontline or Bravecto. Bingie Corner is absolutely not responsible for injuries to dogs. Please also note dogs should not be taken onto the national park beaches or risk a fine. The nearest dog-friendly beach is at Moruya Heads.
Why is it called Bingie Bingie?
Or Bingi Bingi? Bingie is the local Aboriginal word of the Yuin people which means 'food' and repeated, it means 'lots of food'.
Is it Bingie or Bingi?
That depends who you ask! On some of the road signs, it's spelled Bingi but on others, it's Bingie and Google knows both.
