Spacious family home with outdoor & indoor entertaining areas, swim spa in bush setting, two beaches within walking distance and beautiful bush walks right at the door; The Newport Arms nearby,Avalon 5 mins drive & Palm Beach 10 minutes drive.
Located in Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches and within walking distance of the beach, shops and restaurants:
A lovely, house complete with spacious bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, dinning room, library, living room with open fireplace, flatscreen TV/DVD, large undercover balcony/outdoor living area and a bathroom with spa bath and laundry facilities. For those wanting to keep in touch, Wi Fi is included.
When the surf's up, you're welcome to borrow our learner surfboards or boogie board or on rainy days you can enjoy our wide range of board games or DVD movies. Or you could curl up in the massage chair with a book from the extensive library :-)
Given that the house is quite large, we are happy to try and accommodate larger families/groups. One room has a queen bed; the second has two single beds and a bunk bed and the third has a double bed and an elevated king single with a study desk underneath. There is also a single mattress which can be comfortably added to any of the rooms and a futon in the living area which will comfortably sleep two averalge sized adults..
During the day, guests are welcome to use the heated outdoor swim spa in its beautiful bush garden setting.
Bush walks surround the property which is also a short walk to both Newport and Bilgola beaches, Newport wide range of restaurants, shops and buses to the city (Sydney). .
We live in an adjoining but separate house so are nearby if you need help or to be pointed in the right direction to a great restaurant or city outing.
The famed Newport Arms is a few minutes away and offers a courtesy shuttle for those wanting to enjoy a few drinks; Avalon Beach & Village with the local cinema is 5 minutes drive, while Palm Beach is around 10 minute drive.
So you can travel light, we're happy to make practically anything and everything at hand available from coffee makers & blenders to surf & boogie boards and beach towels. And if there's anything you need, just ask as it is my family homes so there's a good chance I have it available.
Please note however, access to the property is via a stone stairway and so it is not really suitable for those with mobility disabilities/wheelchairs etc.

While providing total respect for your privacy; I am around most of the time so always happy to have a chat and help in any way I can make your holiday perfect. If you are interested in popping up and feeding the cockatoos from my upstairs balcony in the early evening, just let me know.

While I try to be as flexible as possible in offering early check ins and late check outs; if I have guests coming and going on the same day, this may not be possible.
Currently a new house is being constructed next door and so their maybe some noise on weekdays - and eventually it will impede on the view slightly.
I am happy to waive the charge for infants provided you bring a travel cot and linen.
Those with pets need to check with me before booking for approval to bring them.
We ask that you don't smoke indoors.
For those wanting to throw a prawn (or steak) on the barbie; please clean the barbeque afterwards.
With consideration to the neighbours, the pool can only be used during the day and not at night time. It is only to be used by guests staying here and not visitors and no glasses or bottles are to be taken into the pool area.
Similarly as it is a quiet neighbourhood, groups are asked to take their gatherings inside and close the balcony doors after 10.00pm at night rather than congregate on the balcony.
While guests are welcome to enjoy special occcasions here, it is not to be used as a party venue. Respect must be shown to the adjoining and next door neighbours as you would in your own home with outdoor gatherings finishing at a reasonable hour or moved indoors so that noise doesn't disturb the neigbhours.
Other than that , we just ask that you relax and have fun and let me know if there's anything that I can help you with :-)
