Whether your looking for a relaxing coastal getaway and/or the convenience of a nearby wedding venue, our cottage is equipped with all the modern creature comforts of a separate and private stand alone beach residence. It's only a five minute drive to either Avalon's diverse range of eateries and shops, or the joy of surfing at Whale or Palm Beach. Alternatively, a ferry ride around Pittwater, or a climb to Palm Beach Lighthouse are all close to Albert Cottage, leaving memorable experiences.
Albert Cottage is unique in that it is a free-standing mini-home entirely separate from the main residence and with its own driveway, therefore providing a degree of real privacy.
Located just a short walk (approx. 15 mins) to both Whale Beach and Avalon Beach and village, the cottage is designed to comfortably accommodate 2-4 people (possibly 5).
For guests who have a toddler and provide their own travel cot, there is no extra charge. For a child occupying a bed, the charge is the same as for an adult.
Also, beautiful Palm Beach (location of TV series "Home & Away") is just 10 mins away by car or bus.
There are a number of good restaurants and cafes within walking distance and also a main bus route to the city.
* 2 bedrooms with built in robes.
*Queen bed in Master b/room and 2nd with one double and one single bed.
*Gas/electric cooktop/oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
*Modern bathroom/toilet with shower (no bath).

Guests will be provided with a set of keys upon arrival and a folder containing helpful information on the cottage and the local area.
Guests can enjoy a barbecue or drink on the deck and are welcome to use the clothesline located between the main residence and the cottage.
The cottage also has its own driveway for off street parking.

Having recently retired from running a small retail business on the Northern Beaches, my wife Margie and I are now concentrating on hosting guests in our lovely self-contained cottage.
Learning from our own experiences of staying in self-contained accommodation when we have travelled, we have endeavoured to create a warm and comfortable environment for our guests and provide them with great facilities and plenty of information. We feel that having a home base when spending time in one destination, gives you the chance to explore the area properly and then be able to put your feet up at the end of the day and relax and choose whether to eat in or out.
Our interests include travel, art and music, movies, catching up with friends, and, of course, great food and wine and our beautiful local beaches.
We consider ourselves as an affable, easy-going couple who love to meet new people.
