A Slice of Paradise. That’s how Naracoopa Holiday Cottages were described on the internet. I had seen and heard it all before! A few years ago I took a gamble with this Slice of Paradise and have never regretted that day.

The Holiday Cottages are situated on the eastern side of King Island just across the road from the sea. Sheltered from the wind, Naracoopa provides magnificent unobstructed views over Sea Elephant Bay and Councillor Island making it a pleasure to sip on a beer while cooking lunch on the impressive wood-fired barbecue.

The one or two bedroom cottages are attractively painted inside and out and complement the superbly manicured gardens. Inside you will find everything that you need for a comfortable stay. The well-equipped kitchen enables elaborate food preparation while the lounge and bedrooms boast spotlessly clean, good quality furnishings. Each cottage has satellite TV, DVD player and informative books with relevance to King Island.

Outside buildings include a laundry and an eye catching games room complete with table tennis and pool tables, darts and board games. Mountain bikes, telescope, DVD, library and WiFi… yes, Naracoopa Cottages have the lot!

Hosts, John and Rhonda, are considerately aware of the fact that the fly-in tourist will arrive with very little and for this reason everything is provided except for meals other than basic breakfast items, bread and milk.

For the day trip you can take tables and chairs in the back of the car and I’m sure I saw some fishing rods for the kids when I was there. On request, a picnic hamper of choice foods is also available.

Where is Naracoopa?

Naracoopa is about a twenty five minute drive from Currie. If you are planning on self-catering, it would be wise to stock up with provisions in Currie as you won’t find a shop in Naracoopa.

What it can offer is total relaxation, unspoilt coastline, sea views and a long, re-built pier that would suit the fisherman. There is also a beach front park for the kids. Just like me, you won’t be disappointed choosing this one.

Next week I will be telling you why the hosts, John and Rhonda claim Naracoopa Holiday Cottages are a “slice of paradise”. In the meantime, check their website for cost and booking details.
