On a secluded property overlooking Maitland Beach, abutting Cape Liptrap Coastal Park, are four private cottages – two for couples and two for small families.

Each is completely self-contained, with a gas log fire, peaked ceilings, white-washed walls and a large undercover deck offering magnificent views out to Wilsons Promontory. And it wouldn’t be a proper summer stay without a hammock and barbecue at your disposal.

But the best thing about Bear Gully is its own little beach, which takes just three minutes to reach from the cottages, down a private timber track. It’s an idyllic place to swim, fish, snorkel, dive or fossick amongst the rock pools with no distractions – the nearest shops and restaurants are a 30-minute drive away.

From $265 per night (midweek stays), $340 per night (high season). Sleeps two to four. beargullycottages.com.au
