About our home

Our 3 bedroom house is positioned on a hill overlooking one of the prettiest beaches in Sydney. It will sleep 6 adults in comfort (not suitable for children under 14 years). It was completely renovated just recently and has luxury fittings and furnishing. The house sits on the crest of the slope at Whale Beach and has absolutely breath taking views of the beach from all rooms and beautiful glimpses of the still water harbour of Pittwater on the other side. There is no traffic noise and a complete sense of privacy and immersion in the tropical surrounds. There is a large rear garden with BBQ and dining facilities and sun lounges and a front sundeck with further dining facilities where you feel like you are suspended over the beach.

The house gets sun from the east, north and west (remember in the southern hemisphere, this is the best exposure). In winter we have the perfect sun trap and it is glorious to sunbake looking at the sea and waves. Winters here are mild...average 18C and this is a wonderful time to visit. If you are going to add a destination like the Barrier Reef or Uluru, it is the peak travel time there.

During 2012 a neighbour will be doing an extensive rebuild. There will be related noise and we expect to compensate with time in exchange for this inconvenience.

NO EXCHANGES with small children.
Please check the availability calendar attached to our home page (see below).

Where is it?


Whale Beach is situated on the Pittwater Peninsular, 40km north of the Opera House. This is an exclusive beachside area, well served by buses to the city and with a lovely local shopping village, Avalon. We have movie theatres, banks, cafes, boutiques, galleries, bakeries and supermarkets. And we have restaurants, restaurants and more restaurants. All this is 5 minutes by car from the house. Within less than a kilometre are golf courses, tennis courts, fishing, sailing and hiking in the adjacent National Park.
