Accommodation in more detail:
Large modern lounge area with reverse cycle air conditioning and plenty of space. Make use of the 55 inch TV, Foxtel (pre-loaded with heaps of movies on the planner) a DVD player with lots of DVD'S, games and books for your use.
Large spacious room with KING sized bed, quality bedding, wardrobe, dressing table/desk with task lighting & convenient charging points. Occasional chair, ceiling fan, heater, full length mirror, block out curtains, hairdryer and luxurious bathrobes makes this a relaxing and functional space.
Bijou & cosier than bedroom 1 but just as functional. We didn’t want to compromise your sleep quality for a bit of extra floor space so this room also has a KING sized bed as well as quality bedding, built in wardrobe, full length mirror, dressing table/desk with task lighting & convenient charging points.
Two steps down to lounge but with sliding doors to close it off completely, or leave open and enjoy the views from your bed!
Slightly reduced ceiling height so not suitable for basketball players…
Newly renovated, fully tiled bathroom with large walk-in shower (with amazing water pressure!) fully adjustable shower head, heater, exhaust fan, basin and vanity. Towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap also provided ("Therapy" aromatherapy range, not tested on animals, made in NZ).
Please note that the kitchenette has a kettle, drinks fridge and a "Nespresso Creatista Plus" coffee machine. Perfect for tea/coffee drinks and snacks but not suitable to prepare full meals or serve up takeaways and does not have storage for your own food except snacks and drinks.
The only table & chairs area is Alfresco and although it is undercover it is still open to the elements, so in bad weather there are no inside table and chairs to dine from.
I really don't want to miss-lead or disappoint anyone so if you need to prepare or serve full meals for you and your guests then it would be better to select an apartment with a fully functioning kitchen & eating area.
It is an ideal place to stay for people who are in the area for a function or event or to relax and are looking at taking advantage of the many cafes and restaurants in Avalon a few minutes away who just want basic kitchen facilities.
There is no running water in the kitchenette (only in the bathroom) but plenty of filtered water is supplied for your kettle, drinking etc in the water dispenser provided.
Some basic provisions will be provided (tea, coffee, Nespresso capsules, milk) and you can take advantage of the plentiful cafe’s in Avalon serving breakfasts or get something delicious from the many bakeries/take outs and dine on the beach!
Avalon even has a newly opened dedicated Vegan only establishment called "Pineapple Crush" that is getting rave reviews. Vegan, vegetarian and organic food is also served at "Nourish" alongside more traditional dishes.
There are over 30 dining establishments in Avalon to take advantage of.
Generous undercover paved patio with views to the ocean and golf course leading to our tropical garden. Morning sun and afternoon shade, with sea breezes. Choose where to sit from one of the 4 sun loungers, outside table & 4 chairs, two seater lounge, two lounge chairs or relax in the hanging chair.
Street parking is available and often this is directly outside our house. However, as with any street this can vary. So on arrival if no space is available nearby then please feel free to park at the very top of our driveway (do not drive down as it is steep at the bottom!) where you can unload and then you can move your car when a space becomes available. I am very flexible about the driveway access and am happy to share if you are.
Access to your accommodation is then down the slightly sloping path from the road to the side of the driveway, down approx 10 steps, (past the giraffe!) across the deck & down another 10 steps at the side of the main house… due to the steps this property is unfortunately not suitable for people with any mobility problems. Guest Access• Private and independent 2 bedroom apartment
• Kitchenette only not full kitchen, no cooking or food storage/prep/full dining facilities
• Private patio
• Shared driveway if no street parking available
• Access down the side of the main house. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the top two levels of the house and will greet guests and welcome them on their first visit and are on hand to assist where needed with anything to do with the accommodation. At any time before or during your stay, we would be delighted to answer any questions & provide local information. We totally respect your need for privacy, so once you are checked in, we will not generally contact you.
However, we want your visit to be as enjoyable as possible so please let us know if we can assist in any way. The NeighborhoodAvalon Beach is a small suburb with a big heart located on the tail end of the famous “Northern Beaches” which run from Manly to Palm Beach and is around an hour by car from the airport and Sydney City. "The Newport" and RMYC are only 4 k's away and takes approx. 7 minutes drive. "Moby's" is 5.5k away & "Jonahs" is 6k's and both taking less than 10 minutes by car.
We are on a unique peninsular that has the beautiful waterways of Pittwater on one side and the ocean on the other and are surrounded by national parks and fabulous beaches that often have their own swimming rock pools.
Avalon village itself is only 5 minutes’ walk and offers a unique mixture of great local boutiques, and an abundance of cafes, bars and restaurants all with a seaside holiday vibe but where the locals eat and shop as well. There is something for everyone with beauty spas, yoga studios and a recreational centre, we even have an “Art” cinema and our own golf course. On the more practical side we also have a medical centre, pharmacies & launderette, amazing bakeries & bottle shop (off licence for those from the UK!)
These are minutes away but for those who want to venture further there are ferry services from Palm Beach to Ettalong on the central coast or to explore the Hawkesbury River or visit The Basin for the day. Boats can also be hired to explore the waterways from Palm Beach.
On your doorstep there are multiple activities from swimming, surfing, fishing, diving, windsurfing, paddle boarding, walking, taking a seaplane ride, you will be spoiled for choice… or just simply relax! Getting AroundWe are located at the beginning of Avalon, just past "the bends", near Newport so a great position to take advantage of our newest celebrity venue "The Newport" as it is only 4.1 k's away and takes approx. 7 minutes drive. "Moby's at Whale beach is only 5.5k's & "Jonahs" is 6k's both taking less than 10 minutes by car.
Most things you will need are only a short drive or walk away. However, If you do not have a car then the L90, L88 and other express bus services are conveniently close so you can go direct to any beach suburb in the area, or even Sydney City itself. Other Things to NoteOur house is directly above your accommodation and although we both work long hours and are extremely considerate & quiet people there may be some noise between floors from general living at certain times of the day. No more intrusive than from a hotel room or unit (flat).
One of our decks of the main house is above your private patio, but on most occasions whilst guests are here we use our top deck to ensure your privacy.
Again please note that due to the steps (approx 20 in total) this property is unfortunately not suitable for people with any mobility problems.
Again please note that although the kitchenette has kettle, drinks fridge and Nespresso coffee machine it is not suitable to prepare or serve up full meals or takeaways nor does it have storage for your own food (except snacks/drinks) It is designed to be fully functional for Tea/Coffee drinks and light non cooked snacks like cheese and biscuits. The dining area is Alfresco only and although it is undercover it isn't suitable in bad weather and there are no inside dining table and chairs. So if you need to prepare full meals or have takeaway meals for you and your guests then it would be better to select accommodation with suitable eating facilities.
It is an ideal place to stay for people who are looking at taking advantage of the many cafes and restaurants in Avalon a few minutes away who just want basic kitchen facilities for a light breakfast or snack. Basically "Bed with Benefits"! better facilities than a hotel would offer but definitely not for those needing self-catering eating facilities. NO TAKAWAYS please.
If you have any specific requirements before you arrive please let me know and I am more than happy to do my best to oblige.
If you are unsure of anything please email me before you book, I will be brutally honest and let you know if our accommodation would be suitable or not, so just ask.
