We'd be more than happy to provide lots of information on where to shop and eat, where to visit, attractions and events, both locally and all around Sydney. The NeighborhoodThere's a lot to love about where we live. We believe we have a bit of the best of everything all within a stone's throw away...
For the nature lovers-
There are some stunning beaches in the northern beaches area, North Narrabeen being one of them! It's so good even the Beach Boys sang about it (see lyrics for Surfin' USA)! It's not only known for its fantastic surf, it has a great ocean pool, and next to the pool is a marine reserve. Then, we have the Narrabeen lakes and surrounding parklands which are fantastic to walk & cycle around, fish & picnic by or to canoe, kayak & paddle-board on. There are countless parks and play areas for the kiddies, some great dog parks too. There are boardwalk wetland walks right next to our local shopping centre no less and, we even have a nature reserve complete with waterfall (depending on rain of course) practically around the corner.
We're closely located to cafés, shops & markets. Warriewood Centro shopping centre is the closest main shopping area. The main area of Narrabeen is another shopping hub and can also be reached on foot. We have the Beaches market at Pittwater Rugby Park on every Friday, offering plenty of organic produce, and every 3rd Sunday of the month the Berry Reserve/Narrabeen Lakes market. There are an abundance of cafe's, restaurants and shops jotted about the immediate area, so plenty of browsing and good eating if you don't feel like cooking.
And all the above is only what's just within walking radius!
Then you've still to consider the rest of the Northern Beaches to explore plus our beautiful city of Sydney...just ask us for more info.
People here are chilled, relaxed and friendly... All in all, it's a pretty nice part of the world. Getting AroundWe are situated approximately 40kms/45mins drive from Sydney airport and 30kms/30mins drive from Sydney city CBD...longer with traffic.
We highly recommend having a car as a main means of transport to fully explore the area and its surrounds, especially if your time with us is limited.
If you do have more time though and/or if exploring within the vicinity- cycling, walking and hiking are ideal ways to discover the beauty of the area.
Buses are the main form of public transportation here in the northern beaches.
There is a bus stop pretty much outside the granny flat which has regular services travelling between Mona Vale and Narrabeen via Warriewood Centro shopping centre. The stop also has added (but limited) services to the city in the mornings and returning from the city in the evenings.
To add, Pittwater road is just a short walk down (refer to house location map), giving you all other main bus routes between Palm beach and the Sydney city CBD, including Chatswood and North Sydney. Buses from Pittwater Rd to Sydney CBD take approximately 1 hour.
Also, there are buses from Narrabeen which can take you into Manly and then from here, one can catch a ferry to/from the city...a must to experience. The ride will leave you breathless in any type of weather! If you're with us for a bit, we highly recommend you at least do it once... Other Things to NoteFeel free to let us know of your interests, what you wish to see or experience during your stay with us and we can plan in advance or suggest a few things for you... Whether it be a yoga class on the beach or paddle boarding on the lake, surfing lessons, suggesting bike trails or hiking trails, etc. We'd be more than happy to help...
