Karbeethong Lodge Mallacoota Reviews
Overcome by serenity on the veranda Jan 31, 2016
S37°32.114' E149°44.555' before you enter Mallacoota village, turn left and while you park your car, you will notice the marvellous view over the Mallacoota Inlet. The water is salty, but according the Russell - the owner - has no resident sharks. We went for a swim from the beach nearby and suffered no attack.
The lodge has eleven nicely decorated rooms. The owners live in the house next door. A large veranda connects it all. Our room number 3 in December 2015 for AUS$130 per night had two very comfortable single beds and an en suite bathroom. The shower was excellent. The ceiling fan made a wheezy noise, so we did not use it. We just opened the windows on both sided - fitted with mosquito screens - and cool air from the lake flowed through the room. No need for an air conditioner unit after a very hot and humid day.
The breakfast is continental: tea, coffee, cereal and toast. Because of its distance to Mallacoota, 5 kilometres, offers the large and well-fitted kitchen guests the opportunity to prepare their own meals. Each room has it own refrigerator in the kitchen. By the time you read this, on our advice, Russell improved the Wi-Fi reception beyond the living room with Wi-Fi extenders.
Karbeethong Lodge is used by the local choir for performances, by village people for marriage ceremonies and by Chinese people as a potential investment opportunity. After a hot day, we loved the cool evenings on the veranda informally talking and enjoying the company of guests from all over the world. This 1900 wooden house has a colonial feeling.
Karbeethong Lodge offers nice accommodation in a very lovely spot. We could have been here for weeks doing totally nothing except unwind from our hectic lives back home. However, Australia has much more lovely places of serenity, so with smiles on our faces we moved on. Very recommended.
