  • We had a lovely time staying at Hendrika's cottage. She and her husband were very friendly and happy to cater to any request we might have had. It was very peaceful and well laid out - they've thought of everything you might need and some things you might have forgotten! We especially liked the enthusiastic welcome from their dogs when we returned to the cottage after going out each day. The cottage is an easy walk to a small set of shops and the bus stop to get back to the city or up to Palm Beach. It's a spirited walk up and down hills to Whale Beach but the views are definitely worth it.

  • Hendrika and her husband were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and offered us a delicous breakfast. The cabin is located in the back of the very charming garden. It is beautifully presented and had everything we needed. The place is quiet and nearby the beaches. Absolutely perfect for what we wanted and we couldn't recommend it more. Thanks for the lovely stay.

  • A great place for a stay in the Palm Beach area and for attending a wedding, as we were. As other guests said, very centrally located. Cute private cabin that was very comfortable, great bed. Appreciated the full length mirror for getting ready for the wedding, and the breakfast provisions (enjoyed the banana bread and yoghurt!). Very handy to have reverse-cycle air-con if needed. Hendrika was helpful and easy to communicate with. Close to a great café, The Greedy Goat, as well!

    Natasha & Chase2015-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Hendrika was amazing, she was very hospitable and the room was as described and she had nice touches such as food and drinks to welcome us. She was very friendly and would definitely stay there again.

    Stazia2015-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We were attending a wedding around the corner and needed a place to stay. Couldn't be happier with our choice, Hendrika was lovely, and the room was perfect.

    adam2016-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Hendrika was a prompt communicator. The space was as advertised and Hendrika and her husband were welcoming hosts. We enjoyed Tyson and Ralph, their four legged friends immensely, and we loved making a tea in our room and toasting the banana bread thoughtfully provided. Would stay again. Many thanks.

    Lauren2013-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Hendrika's place was just lovely. Good facilities with lots of little extras provided eg umbrella, books, bathrobe and private verandah. The location was great situated near the ocean beachside and the pittwater. The unit was light and roomy and we were made most welcome.

    Clare2015-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for being such warm and welcoming hosts. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed. Very comfortable bed too! I'm sure we'll return.

  • What a gorgeous little spot. I felt instantly welcome and at home. Such a shame I only had one night to enjoy it! Stunning views and a very comfortable bed. Plenty of books if you want to sit on the balcony and have a read. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a mini break away from Sydney!

    Megan2016-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • We were extremely grateful to Meredith for accepting our last minute booking and were so pleased to stay in such a wonderful spot! The place it's self is spacious, with great amenities like a fridge and Netflix. The main selling point is of course that fabulous view which didn't disappoint one bit! Meredith was great and provided any information that we could possibly need, and had a great, very detailed guide in the room to local amenities including flyers for restaurants. Incredibly useful! Don't miss out on browsing the wonderful collection of books and enjoying a holiday read on the balcony. Bliss!

    Phoebe2016-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Only word I can use to describe Meredith and Lionel's house! The decor, the location even the smell was absolutely stunning! The only downfall... We didn't book to stay longer! If you need somewhere to relax and indulge in complete tranquility Merediths place in Avalon Beach is the place to do it! Unfortunately we never got to meet Meredith and her family although we did meet two of the "naughty" cats :) however Meredith made everything easy for us and the description was perfect exactly what we needed arriving at midnight! And the bed!! Never wanted to get out!... Meredith kept in contact throughout our stay asking and reassuring us of anything we may need, the perfect hosts. And the use of Netflix was greatly appreciated when I wasn't feeling too well!... Can't fault our stay at all it was everything and more, a true dream and we can only say thank you to Meredith and Lionel for allowing us the privilege of staying :)

    Lucy2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Would give this six stars if it were an option, amazing location, beautiful accommodation and far reaching views. Very good hosts.

    Louise2016-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is magical. The views are spectacular and Avalon is a beautiful place to visit. Merideth and Lionel were very helpful and we enjoyed our stay immensely. We will certainly be back to visit again. Thanks

    Lauren2016-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home away from home. Great views and very comfy bed and couch!

    Kendall2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house and beautifully done! A great getaway!

    Rachael2016-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place with amazing views and a fantastic host! We didn't want to leave and would love to stay again... Everything was just perfect! 11/10 and 6 stars in every respect... So good. :)

  • The hosts were extremely responsive and friendly, we could not have asked for a better host experience. We arrived early, and they were very accommodating in every way. David had great local suggestions and all in all we didn't feel like we were on someone else's property, we felt at home and comfortable.

    Vivienne2016-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • We used Emily & David's place for a guest at our wedding. Amazing space that was large and comfortable with a great outlook! I know our guest enjoyed staying there and that we were a little jealous!

    Jaryd2015-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We met up with Emily first a few minutes early, but she was so gracious with allowing us to set our bags down while she continued to prep our stay. (which included treats, white wine and fresh fruit). She had so many recommendations to eat, drink and play at around the house and made sure we felt very welcome. Emily kept in touch with us through out our stay to make sure we didn't need anything and even let us borrow a USB cord as we forgot ours. The locations was a little harder to get to than we expected from the bus, but never the less was worth the up hill walk. The view and hidden tree house feel was a perfect backdrop for a vacation.

    Sean & Kortnee2015-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • David & Emily's house was beautiful. It even exceeded our expectations. the photos look amazing but actually being there is even better. standing in the lounge room and looking out over the ocean is breathtaking. communication was super clear, chilled and friendly. on arrival we were greeted with a nice bottle of white chilling on ice, and a beautiful spread of cheese, quince paste, crackers, chocolates, fruit and breakfast items. all one would need to get started. it's 10 mins or less walk to beautiful whale beach, my fave beach in sydney. we went in September and there was hardly anyone around. brilliant. it's also a short 25 min stroll to the super nice Jonah's restaurant, which was a lovely addition to our break. We didn't meet David, but we did catch Emily for 5 mins, and she was lovely. it was a pleasure staying her and Next time we're in whale beach we'll definitely book again. stay here you won't regret it.

    Josh2016-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great view! The place was very clean and comfortable. Some nice food left for us as well. The wine was a welcome touch. Plenty to do in the area and the whole experience was simple and easy... Thanks guys

    David2015-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. Very quiet and relaxed. Close to shops and beaches. Emily and David were perfect hosts. Showing us around before leaving us to our own devices.

    Rob2015-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was really enjoyable at David and Emily's place. Not only that their place is a beautiful welcoming and warm flat with a gorgeous scenery of the ocean, it was also effortless with all the arrangements. We would definitely come back if we head up that way again. Thanks so much :)

    Kristine 2015-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for your hospitality. We were travelling with our 2 year old son and Emily and David did everything they could to provide us with toys and books to make his stay and our experience special. We also appreciated the eggs, smoked salmon, croissants, milk and coffee they provided after our long travel. Oh the wine too

  • Michelle was a lovely host and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. The place had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Paul2013-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle is a delightful person who is extremely welcoming, friendly, very helpful and proactive. Michelle was readily available to provide information about the house, the area and answer all queries. The place is spacious and fully equipped with everything that you might need. There are magnificent views out to sea, surrounded with colourful birdlife and easy access to shops and a variety of dining options.

    Adrienne2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful family holiday here. Sitting on the balcony looking at the amazing sea view, having a BBQ or reading one of the "library" books is very relaxing. Lots of lovely beaches, coffee shops and restaurants in the area makes the holiday even better. Michelle was also very attentive, and made sure we had everything (and lots more) that we could have wanted. One word of warning - there are lots of steps to climb down to get to the front door!

    Karen2014-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle was a great host who had all of the little things taken care of and was very easy to communicate with no matter what our enquiry, would highly recommend staying at her place for a nice relaxed weekend, the views and pool/spa was great.

    Nick2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle was a very friendly and welcoming host, she started us off with basic foods along with milk and coffee, was very reasonable about noise and genuinely wanted us to have a great week! The pool spa was great for after a swim at the beach which was surprisingly and delightfully close, 10/10 would go back again :)

    chelsea2015-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle was great, the house is very comfortable and I had a wonderful time there! Very quite place, amazing view of the beach and nice neighborhood. I recommend and hope to come back as soon as possible!

  • We really enjoyed staying at Michelle's place an dealing with her. Her place is in a great location and has everything you'll need for your stay. We really welcomed the little extra touches such as the library, board games and welcome basket. Michelle was accommodating, helpful and responsive in her communication. Hope to stay again.

    Amazing BEACH/BUSH RETREAT
    150 reviews
    This original timber and sandstone fisherman's cottage on the water’s edge of Pittwater's stunning Mackerel Beach has been lovingly restored into a beautiful, secluded beach and bush hideaway and couple's retreat.
    Perfectly positioned, the Little Black Shack’s North East aspect lets you wake to the sunrise over Palm Beach headland and enjoy the sun all day long. The sea breeze keeps the shack cool during summer whilst the tree-lined ridge of Ku-ring-gai National Park behind, shelters it from the cold southerly winds during winter. With its rustic, hand built sandstone open fireplace, comfy leather chairs, soft cowhide rugs and full-length window box seat, The Little Black Shack is also a cosy winter cabin. There are two bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Just metres from the water, every room features windows and French or barn doors opening out to uninterrupted views of Mackerel Beach, Pittwater, Barrenjoey Headland, Palm Beach and beyond. The interior features recycled and hand made furniture with an eclectic mix of nautical antiques and collectables gathered from travels around the world and forages along the beach. The lounge, dining and gourmet chef’s kitchen are open plan. The lounge features a hand built sandstone fireplace and a floor to ceiling bookcase with an extensive library. A large flat screen TV, Blue-ray DVD and the latest Bose surround sound Wi-Fi stereo are hidden behind the doors of a rustic handmade cupboard with Bose speakers in the outdoor areas and Bose Wi-Fi systems in each bedroom. The window seat spanning the full length of the front of the lounge room, is the perfect spot to relax with a good book, chill out with your own playlist, take a nap or gaze out of any one of the 6 windows overlooking the stunning beaches and bay. The kitchen features concrete bench tops, wooden cupboards made from the original floorboards, a large farmhouse sink, commercial grade cookware, microwave, Ilve gas stove and electric oven, perfect for creating your favourite meals. Two French doors open from the kitchen/dining area onto a small covered balcony and bar area overlooking the water. Once you are here you will never want to leave - which is why the gourmet chef’s kitchen comes equipped with everything you need and a fully stocked pantry. You can also help yourself to the fresh herbs in the kitchen garden. The original sandstone bathroom features a beautiful stone bath and a large copper shower with amazing water views. The main bedroom has a generous king bed and access to a private lawn and garden. The rustic hand made bed has loads of comfy down pillows and is elevated to take full advantage of the water views! The second bedroom is reached by a short set of sandstone steps in front of the house. This cosy room features a super comfortable hand made queen bed. The room is built from the original sandstone, lined with timber and has a soft cowhide rug on the floor. It also enjoys stunning panoramic water views through the window and barn door. It has its own private stone terrace overlooking the water and a grassed area shaded by a large Frangipani tree, with a hammock to relax in ... Both rooms are beautifully furnished with cowhide rugs, antique cupboards and chests of drawers and the bedding is 100% linen. There is a large north facing sun deck at the front of the shack and a covered terrace and outdoor hand-built sandstone kitchen. Featuring a wood fired oven and charcoal BBQ/fireplace this space is perfect for all day alfresco living, dining, cooking and entertaining. There is an outdoor shower set amongst the trees half way down the front steps leading to a secluded sandy beach at low tide. Here you can rinse off after swimming or shower under the stars on warm summer evenings. The cottage is surrounded by native coastal gardens and terraced grass level areas overlooking the water and shaded by huge Frangipani trees. The Little Black Shack is completely eco friendly. Windows, barn doors and French doors allow the sea breeze to circulate and cool the house in summer while the open sandstone fireplace warms the house during winter using firewood collected from fallen trees off the property. Rainwater is harvested for bathing and washing which is recycled to irrigate the main garden. The grounds also feature a small kitchen garden to provide you with fresh herbs. When it comes to the interiors, if we couldn’t find it second hand, we made it by hand, from recycled, repurposed and found materials. Candles and oil lanterns are provided for alternative lighting.
    Whilst we’re only a mile from the mainland and Palm Beach, we might as well be a million miles away … Getting here is part of the experience. Once you board ‘Myra’ the old timber ferry at Palm Beach you leave the city and your worries behind. The Little Black Shack is reached via a short walking track at the end of the beach or via the rocks along the beach at low tide. Once you are here, close the gates, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the view, the peace and the quiet. Relax and unwind on Mackerel's beautiful main sandy beach or enjoy swimming or snorkelling right out the front on a secluded section of the beach, fishing off the rocks below, kayaking or boating in the crystal clear protected waters of Pittwater. The surrounding National Park offers some incredible bush walks to secluded beaches, The Basin Lagoon, ancient Aboriginal carving sites and incredible lookouts. Take a leisurely stroll along Mackerel Beach or through the valley behind it where you will find friendly locals (including wallabies and bush turkeys) and some original fibro beach cottages. You can also hire your own 'tinny' from Palm Beach to explore Pittwater’s many coves and bays by water. If you feel like heading back to the mainland, the old timber ferry ‘Myra’ leaves on the hour and is just a 10-minute ride to Palm Beach wharf. From here you can make the trek up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, walk to Palm Beach, dine at the local restaurants, bars and cafes or browse the shops, galleries and Palm Beach markets (on set days). You can also head into Avalon village, just 5 minutes down the road by car. Here you can explore the many shops, restaurants and bars, visit the surf beach or take in a movie.
  • This place in amazing. The level of detail that Ingrid and Jamie have gone to to create the ultimate beach shack is incredible. The photos do not do it justice. We will be staying here again as soon as we have time.

    Jungle2015-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Another fabulous stay in unique, barefoot luxury. Every detail is beautiful and considered - from the recycled furnishings to the gorgeous linens to the beautiful kitchen to the sandstone bathroom with aesop products, to the lovely timber and stone terraces dropping down to the sea, and the views out to the lighthouse. Great array of books also! Thanks Ingrid and Jamie, wonderful hosts!

    Vanessa2017-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Black Shack is an amazing spot and such a unique property, great for a coupes getaway if you want to switch off and relax. You'll forget you're only an hour away from Sydney.

    Stuart2016-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Ingrid & Jamie have an incredibly well built and looked after property tucked away up in the cliff face just on Mackeral Beach. They have thought of absolutely everything which made the stay very comfortable and relaxing. It was like living in a dream for the weekend. HIGHLY recommended!

    Jac2016-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at The Little Black Shack was a magical experience. The location of the shack allows you to gaze across to Palm Beach and has private beach access where you can use the provided kayaks, fishing gear and snorkels. The shack itself has a beautifully styled interior and exterior giving you a coastal holiday vibe, and is teamed with all the mod-cons like surround sound speakers, coffee machine... And an outdoor pizza oven! Ingrid and Jamie have thought of everything you will ever need.. So much so that you'll never want to leave. The photos do not do it justice - book immediately!!

    Georgia2016-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is something quite magical - a little piece of paradise within easy reach of Sydney. The communication was excellent and the house is really something you have to see to believe. Its stocked with all the pantry basics and an amazing kitchen with all the little details that make a place extra special - linen sheets, Aesop products in the bathroom, fluffy towels. It's right on the beach with panoramic ocean views and hugged behind by the bush so it feels like a real hideaway. Can't wait to return!

    Joan2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Black Shack is absolute perfection. So many lovely touches such as linen sheets, hot water bottles, Aesop products. And a wonderfully well equipped kitchen and well stocked pantry. A very memorable 30th birthday weekend for my boyfriend.

    Natasha2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Black Shack is magical! Once you set foot on the shores of Great Mackerel beach you'll feel a million miles away. My brother and I spent two nights at the shack to get away from our busy lives in Sydney and to unwind....and that we did! This is by far the most amazing place I've ever stayed, in Australia as well as internationally. The attention to detail Ingrid & Jamie have paid to this property is amazing, never once did we find ourselves saying "it would be good if they had..." actually quite the opposite, the kitchen has everything you could ask for (and even my chef brother was impressed!), the pizza oven was a blast to use and although we didn't catch any, the crab traps and kayaks were a lot of fun! Beyond the necessities are the considerate little touches that truly make your stay special, from the gorgeous bunch of flowers on arrival, to the aesop shampoo and conditioner, everything was thought of. Thank you so much Ingrid and Jamie for being truly generous and hospitable hosts. There is no doubt we'll be coming back.

    Great Mackerel Beach, NSW, Australia

    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. COTTAGE FEATURES: * 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). * Hairdryer. * LCD TV * DVD Player * BBQ * WiFi
    We love the location where we live; it's walking distance to two fabulous beaches; we have several good restaurants only a few minutes walk away and yet it's a quiet street in a great neighbourhood. Avalon village is a vibrant and interesting shopping precinct with supermarket, cinema, banks, post office, restaurants and boutiques. For those who love a round of golf, Avalon has a very nice 9-hole course right in the village and Palm Beach provides an 18-hole course with an ocean view.
  • Our hosts were extremely welcoming and flexible with our arrival time. The fridge was stocked with milk, juice, brie (definite bonus points!!) and the pantry had staples like local bread and crackers. Several take away restaurants (Thai, Italian) were within a 2 minute walk from the house, which was great that we didn't have to drive. Also, beaches were a 20 minute walk/5 minute drive away. This house was perfect for us with our 9 month old baby. Very clean and baby safe. It was quiet and gorgeous waking up to all the local bird life.

    Jared2016-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous house, short drive to great beaches and to the shops. We really loved our week here. The house was clean & beautifully furnished with a lovely balcony and garden. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly.

  • Ross and Margie were very welcoming and the complimentary "goodies" were much appreciated. The cottage listing is very accurate and is in a great residential neighbourhood. The cottage is clean with all the "mod cons" one could want.

  • Excellent family :-) Both of them extremely nice people. Can recommend him all along. Property charming and location as well.

    Marti2015-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very accommodating and friendly hosts who supplied us with some wonderful additions in the kitchen

    Shannan2016-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Margie and Ross are exemplary hosts - generous, warm and welcoming and they provide accommodation that is every bit as good as it looks. We used the cottage to accommodate two of our team members and we worked there over five days. It was tranquil, set in a beautiful garden and close to the beach.

    Jane2014-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect little getaway spot. Close enough to everything to be easily accessible (restaurants, beaches, cafes) but quiet and secluded enough to ensure all you can hear is birds chirping in the morning. Everything was as described except I need to add that the space is very intuitively designed and also you can tell that Ross and Margie really care; not only because when you meet them they have a genuine interest in ensuring you have a great stay but also by the multitude of small inclusions that show they have put a lot of thought into creating a really lovely relaxing setting. Highly recommend and will certainly be back.

    Matthew2014-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ross & Margie were excellent hosts who greeted us warmly & better still provided unexpected treats such as a cold beer & wine, cheese & biscuits, plus items for breakfast such as eggs, muffins & juice etc. The cottage was presented exactly as described & is very well located. We could not have asked for any more with some basic restaurants a quick walk away but others recommended by the hosts if you wish to drive. Ross even offered to drive us to the wedding we were attending. Fantastic, we will return.

  • A beautiful family home with your own living space at the lower level yet still enjoys the stunning view of the water and headland. Our lovely host Alison was very nice and pays attention to details. The walk up to the unit from the raod is a tad steep although it is close to public transport and nearby restaurants including Sunday Markets. The nearby golf course and the Barrenjoey Lighthouse were beautiful places to hang out. I would recommend this place!

  • Location location location!! Recently stayed a night here at Alison and Charles perfect unit in Palmy for a wedding. Everything was spot on and Charles and Alison went above and beyond to make our stay a breeze. Even to the extent Charles dropped us over the hill to the wedding, very kind and were also very flexible with checking in. Shame it was a quick trip, we'll be back. Thank you :)

  • Stunning views - better than photos. Place was super clean and comfortable. Hosts were lovely and respectful of privacy. Included fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave with no basin to wash up but lots of brekkie supplies provided. Note unconventional layout, between bedroom and lounge space is main house access. Would stay again.

    Mackeral Beach is located on the northern beaches of Sydney and accessed by boat. It's a beautiful secluded beach community in stunning Ku-rin-gai Chase National Park, home to great bush walks inc Flint & Steel, Resolute Beach and America's Bay. Our house is less than 100 metres from the beach. Across the water are numerous surf beaches and restaurants. There's a cinema in Avalon which shows latest releases and excellent coffee stops.
    There are three double bedrooms all with cathedral ceilings, wardrobes and closets. Each bedroom has double bed . There are two single mattresses which can be utilised in the living space on the first floor if required. The house is unique, with loads of character and personal touches, if you want a beige rental this is not for you! The deck leads to a front garden with jacaranda, frangipani and avocado tree. It's highly likely that you will see wallabies during your stay and in the summer goannas are often seen in the garden and sometimes even on the verandah. They're harmless and quite beautiful creatures. There's loads of birds, parrots and lorikeets and Kookaburras. On the top deck you will find a hammock and sun lounge and on the bottom deck, deck chairs, a dining table, shade umbrella and BBQ and plenty of deck space to relax , read a book or listen to music. The sound system plugs into your phone or there's a cupboard filled with CDs if you want to look for something new. Additionally we've left cards, puzzles and some games. We've left an eclectic selection of our personal books which includes poetry, novels , historical and photographic books, you'll find something that appeals. The laundry has both washing machine and dryer but there's a line to dry clothes in the sun which we'd prefer in terms of electricity consumption. the house is also on rain water so the drinking water is beautiful but we ask that you are careful and don't take long showers or leave the tap running whilst you clean your teeth, be respectful of the water supply. There's wifi if you need it but we'd encourage you to enjoy some time away, there's also a phone line which you can use for all your local calls. All sheets are provided and bath towels but please bring your own beach towels. We also provide shampoo, liquid soap, tea (loads of varieties including herbal),coffee, oil, salt and pepper, some jams etc, the basics. There's no shop here, that's the beauty of the place, so be sure to bring all you need as once you're here you likely won't want to be going anywhere.
    The neighbourhood is unique in that it is boat access only, there are no roads and no cars, only the occasional golf buggy. It's an extraordinary location, sitting in and surrounded by national park and fronted by a stunning beach and populated by many animals including wallabies, goannas, bush turkey's and lyre birds. It's a small and friendly community, extremely child friendly, safe and generally very quiet except for the birds.
  • Mackeral Beach is a beautiful and idyllic place. The house is in a great location - very close to the beach and wharf. It is comfortable and has everything you need to have a relaxing time. My kids had an awesome time loving the freedom that Mackeral Beach offers. Liz and Simon were very responsive hosts and I recommend staying at their home.

    Julie2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our family needed a few days of secluded R & R at the end of our holiday in Sydney, and Liz's place at Great Mackerel Beach was the perfect location. Water access only, say no more. The kids thought it was like staying at the The Burrow (the Weasley's house in Harry Potter) because of the multi-level house design. Loved the hammock deck and the tree swing and the birdlife and the wallabies. Interesting treks south through the neighbours' back yards to the next beach, and north through the bush to the next beach thataway. We'll be back!

    Bob2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • beautiful place & great communication made everything so easy.

    Alesha2017-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • A hippie shack full of character, set amongst the trees and a short walk from the beach. A wonderful spot for a weekend away to unwind and enjoy the beautiful mackarel beach.

    Claire2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, a minute walks from Mackeral beach and a 20 min bush walk from Resolute beach. The house is very spacious, not your regular brick build instead made completely from wood and sandstone. It has a lot of character, heavily decorated in cultural artefacts making you feel like you're sleeping in a museum. There was a sun room on the second level which we found a nice spot to relax and do yoga in. The bathrooms and kitchen were clean and provided us with everything we needed. We did come across a couple of spiders and small lizards in the house, along with cobwebs and found the rooms to be a bit dusty but being right in the bush this was no surprise. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay overall. It's a beautiful place!

    Gabrielle 2017-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • As a family we loved staying here as it was very much a family home but away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney...yet only an hour from Sydney's centre. A beautiful family home with the quirks of its family's history and past .. a tree swing for our daughter to wile away time, the cubby house, the Moroccan tiled bathroom, a hammock to snuggle into with a good book, the yoga space, all the many artefacts from png, India and Arnhem Land... we feel privileged to have been given time here. Mackerel is sydneys hidden jewel.. a perfect getaway and Liz's place is the perfect complement.. we will be back

    Stella And Juz2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic host indeed! Liz was not only very informative about the property but also played as a tour guide for all our needs. She provided detailed Bushwalk notes and was always available by phone with any of our queries. Thanks for ensuring we had a memorable ray Liz!

    Omar2017-01-07T00:00:00Z

    Yuti is a comfortable holiday house within beautiful Ku Ring Gai National Park. It is one of about 20 homes in the secluded community. Much of its appeal is due to the fact that it is remote: accessible only by ferry from Palm Beach or private boat. It is safe for children as there are no cars, roads or commercial businesses at Coasters. Access from the wharf or waterfront is by footpath.
  • We had a lovely stay! It was a perfect getaway, we absolutely loved the tranquillity. John was a great host and communicator. Thanks so much. Definitely recommend it.

    Susan2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great location if you want a quiet bush retreat. Be aware that if you don't have the use of your own boat the ferry can be a bit price to come and go at $16 return trip. The ambiance is wonderful with the sound of gentle lapping water and there are birds galore and native wild life.

    Elizabeth2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic weekend!

    Rachael2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay and relax! Fun to get there by ferry, a very friendly and laid back little community, beautiful scenery- nice bush tracks to get a view of the harbour, and secluded swimming spots. Make sure you remember everything and take enough food- no ducking down to the shops!

  • Service was wonderful and very prompt, the guest house is new with a great layout and has everything you need. Location is perfect for a stroll to restaurants, cafe and the RSL. Highly recommend the Greedy Goat cafe which has great food and service. The main house is in the same vicinity as the guest house but we were left to our own devices and didn't hear a peep. Public transport is a few steps away from the house. Is only 2mins drive to the beach and about 5mins walk to the ferry. Thanks for your hospitality.

    Emily2017-03-04T00:00:00Z

  • Great location! There is a bus stop right outside that can take you around if you have no car. Easy access to shops. We hired bikes and rode up the Boathouse in 10 minutes. Place was clean and spacious enough for 2 couples. The Wifi was temperamental but the hosts were so kind was brought us round an unexpected gift to apologise which was so nice of them. Really get the impression they will go the extra mile to ensure you have great stay. Would highly recommend!

Great bathroom and shower and a really good new kitchen. Great location too and you can walk to Pittwater in about 5mins or up the road for fish n chips. Overall a really comfortable and relaxing stay

    Its all about the position. 180 degree views over beautiful Pittwater. Walking distance to Barrenjoey House, The Boathouse and Dunes. 1 minute stroll to the water for a swim, to take a cruise on the famous Merinda 2 or just to sit and soak in PalmBeach. Its a secluded hideaway for two amongst the trees while still managing to be a part of the PalmBeach scene. Having said this it isn't a little Studio. The kitchen looks onto the dining and lounge room while the bedroom has an ensuite bath.
  • Spectacular spot and a very friendly host. This really is a magical place to unwind and explore the beautiful Northern Beaches.

  • Dee and I had a fantastic stay on the Beneteau yacht on Pittwater. Lynne was fantastic in dealing with all my questions prior to the weekend, Paul and Roycey were fantastic hosts, they took us on a 2 hours relaxing cruise around Pittwater. The french Beneteau is very confortable and the bedrooms were clean and provided with fresh linen and towels. Dee and I managed to cook some great food on board and eat on the deck outside. The drinks were kept fresh at all time as there is a cooler with ice in the kitchen inside. Fantastic stay overall, we really enjoyed our time and we will come back again!

  • Myself and my girlfriend spent the night and we had an absolutely great time. Paul & Lynne are extremely nice and helpful throughout, the boat is amazing and the night sky was the cherry on top. We are already convincing our mates to come with us next time - will most certainly be booking again. Thanks guys !

  • New Years Eve on busy Palm Beach is a crazy time however as soon as we drove up to the Boatshed - Paul, Adam and Royce made sure we had nothing to worry about. From the easy boarding and induction process to the AMAZING seafood platter and well stocked ice box. This was quite possibly the Best NYE ever. We booked for an extra night so cooked breakfast and spent New Years day swimming and sunbaking right on the boat. Loved the day bed! Thanks Again.

  • Paul and Lynn were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. They kept in contact with us from the time of the booking and it was so lovely to meet them in person. Everything was organised and it was such a smooth trip out to the yatch. Everything was lovely and clean, the yatch was gorgeous and the weather was perfect. It was such an enjoyable experience.

  • We had a fantastic time on the yacht! I left my booking until the last minute but lynne was very helpful ensuring i had all the information i required to get there. Paul was very helpful with the safety briefing for us nervous first timers! The yacht was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed and we loved the fact there was fishing and snorkel equipment for us to use! I was able to cook a lovely meal onboard and watched the sunset on the deck with a glass of fizz! Very romantic and ideal for a special occasion! Definitely a birthday to remember!

  • What a fabulous way to cap off a Thursday! Paul and Royce were fantastic and professional hosts who greeted us at the boathouse, helping us park and taking our luggage for us aboard. We spent the afternoon enjoying a sail and swim as Royce kindly topped up our glasses of champagne and enjoyed a wonderful late lunch of cheese, meat and seafood that we'd packed & were able to prepare easily using the facilities on board. With 3 cabins to choose from, we found the other two particularly helpful for storing our luggage and changing out of swimwear. Small pillows provided meant we were able to lounge on deck comfortably whilst watching the sun set - something that must be seen! Did I mention the customised daybed? Brilliant for lounging in the sun. Overall, we had such a great stay and absolutely can't wait to book another.

  • Ian's place is a perfect way to experience Palm Beach the way the locals do. The views from the back patio are so lovely - the perfect way to spend an evening with a glass of wine. We watched scrub turkeys, kookaburras, rabbits and cockatoos for hours. There's a great deli just a short (steep) walk down the hill but well worth the trip - stock up on goodies, climb back up the hill and then settle in for the night. I also recommend walking to the beach (about 20 mins away) and then on to The Boat House for some paddle boarding followed by lunch with a million dollar view.

    Soph2016-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time. Nice location, beautiful backyard. Ian was a great host and the fridge was stocked with bread, milk, and even champagne!

    Jonathan2016-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely fantastic place! The unit was clean, modern and very secluded with a stunning garden outlook. Also within walking distance to Palm Beach and the restaurants. Hopefully I'll get to stay again, one night wasn't long enough.

    Thomas2016-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I unfortunately didn't get to stay at Ian's due to a last minute change of plans, however he was very kind and understanding.

  • Brilliant location, great house and fantastic to be able to use paddle boards and kids canoes. Kids absolutely loved the swing and the little motor bike and being able to fish from the private jetty. We had a really wonderful time, I would recommend this place to families who want a peaceful holiday with lots of options for outdoor fun.

    Carly2017-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Chris was very responsive and suportive before our arrival. My family travelled from Poland (long way yeah ;) ), we went to Cairns, Fitzroy Island so a bit of mobility involved, but they found this place the best during their stay. Paddle boards, kayaks for kids, direct access to the water, plenty of nice beaches around. Wallabies and iguanas literally knocking to your door each morning :) Boat for commuting to shops and places where you can grab somethimg to eat is a must.

    Jakub2017-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying at Chris' with a group of 8. Fun to cook meals together & eat overlooking the water/scenery. Swimming out the front at the Jetty is a very unique experience & to be so close to swim at the Basin is also a real gem. Good adventure for city folk to switch off & enjoy nature!

    Kelvin2017-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chris's place was a Gem of a find,from the moment we arrived till the moment we left we were Relax and Happy. Our family of eight loved the Peace and Quiet the water and fishing, catch of the day feed us lunch and the kids played with the canoes , paddle boards , dug out clay and made pots. The SWING was a treat for everyone. The decor was very practical and beautifully designed. We loved our stay and will be back. Regards Belinda and Tony

She has a very comfortable house that she leaves as though she is living in it; there is a well stocked kitchen, games, comfortable bedrooms and a beautiful deck to relax on. There is plenty of wildlife in the garden including wallabies and a goanna. Ann's instructions and booking advice were easy.

  • Skylarks is idyllic! From the moment you hop off the Ferry you feel relaxed. Ann's home is beautifully appointed and the bedroom configuration is ideal for two families. The beds are super comfortable and everyone wakes up to a spectacular view - including the children! The kids loved feeding the Wallabies carrots and the wildlife was amazing - Kookaburras, lizards and bush turkeys all came to visit. Highly recommend Skylarks - we will go back again.

    This is a beautiful rustic sandstone cottage hewn by hand from the land with 2 bedrooms, lounge/dining, small effective electric kitchen with sun deck and gazebo on one level with 3rd bedroom underneath (external access). This experience is best described as sophisticated camping where the streets are made of grass, the wildlife is outside the door and the beach with wavelets to small waves similar to the Mediterranean is about a 7 minutes walk. Check out "Mackerel Beach" on Youtube.
    This is a simple rustic house. The environment is semi-tropical. For the energetic there are bushwalks to ancient aboriginal carvings, other beaches or other western foreshore communities. Local wildlife that has recently been seen includes wallabies, possums, brush turkeys, bandicoots, lyre birds, water dragons and other wildlife. Mackerel Beach is a small peaceful community opposite Palm Beach with no shops. Access is by ferry on the hour during the day or water taxi at other times. SOPHISTICATED CAMPING The peace and positive atmosphere of Mackerel is reminiscent of the past. There is no through traffic. The cottage is made of sandstone hewn by hand from the land it stands on. Please bring all the supplies you need. It is preferred that you bring your own sheets and towels. Bed linen can be arranged for a small fee. Rainwater is harvested for drinking, and you may want to bring your own supply. Bore water is used for grey water. Arrival is usually after 3.30pm and departure is usually before 12.00 noon. Mobile phone access in the house depends on your phone and provider. There is a phone available in the house to receive incoming calls. A public phone is located at the beach. Free wi-fi is available in the house. Boats are available for hire at Palm Beach. UNIQUE On any balmy evening you can take a lazy stroll down to the beach and enjoy the view of Pittwater in the fading light with some refreshments. It is then a gentle stroll back to the house for dinner from the BBQ or you can organise takeaway through the water taxi service. The house is in the valley which protects you from most winds and creates its own environment. With the palm trees and other vegetation you could easily believe you were in the tropics. In winter you can relax in front of the fireplace which is also a stove. Experience the extra flavours from the slow cooking of stews, curries or casseroles. You are protected from the outside elements by the thick sandstone walls. The whole ambience can make for great memories. There is also a range of excellent restaurants available on the eastern foreshore with a water taxi service at night (Pink Taxi). Mackerel Beach is ideally located in the off chance that you may have an urgent need to get to the city which is only about 1.5 hours away. There are also regular bus services every 20 or 30 minutes between the city and the ferry wharf. A more adventurous seaplane flight from Rose Bay to Mackerel Beach and return is also available. While Mackerel is a great place for children this property is not really suitable for children under 7 years of age and definitely not suitable for children or infants under 6 years of age. Cats are banned by Pittwater Council and must not be taken to Mackerel. Limitations are placed on dogs in public spaces. Domestic animals are not allowed on this property as they stop wildlife such as wallabies visiting and may cause allergic reactions in following tenants.

The Hosts are great and everything is super easy.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our trip in this truly beautiful and memorable spot in Palm Beach. The view from the guest house balcony is outstanding allowing you to sit back with a glass or two watching the ferries and boats coming and going as the sun slowly sinks below the horizon - right ahead. Brilliant and so relaxing. We were really impressed with the guest house, furnishings and amenities. The nearby restaurants are also fab including Jonahs, Barrenjoey House and the Boat House. Just wished we had stayed three nights. Will do next time when we return.

    Our cosy house is set-back from the water up the hill. This makes it very peaceful and gives the place a slight tree house feeling. As well as being a comfortable (but basic) home, there are plenty of visiting birds and wallabies. Coasters Retreat is a boat only access, so visitors will generally need to catch the lovely old ferry over from Palm Beach (10 minute ride and part of the experience).
    A getaway from city life only one hour (plus short ferry ride) from the Sydney CBD. You park the car at Palm Beach ferry wharf and talk a lovely old ferry across the water to Coasters Retreat. Our house is a 5 minute walk along a bush track.
    Coasters Retreat is a small friendly community on the western side of the Pittwater. Everyone in the community has boats - we just have two kayaks at the moment. The lack of cars makes a big difference to the community vibe. You can rent a 'tinnie' for the day at Palm Beach and go exploring.

Hidden away behind a private garden the house was well equipped with a great kitchen and entertainment area. We were able to unwind and relax completely. The kids (and adults ) enjoyed the beach and walks in the surrounding bushland. Hopefully we will be back one day. Thanks Hannah.

  • I booked hannah's house for a family long weekend away. We had 6 adults and a baby staying in the house which had more than adequate space for everyone. We also had another house booked on Mackerel so had 12 adults hosted at the house during meal times. The house is fully equipped. You want for nothing staying here. It is a real foodies kitchen, all utensils and cooking equipment are made available. There are 2 fridges at the house which is great for Mackerel as you need to make sure you have catered for your full trip as there are no shops in the area. Hannah is great with communication. I had many questions to ask and she provided answers promptly and in great detail. The house is large! there is a full deck with large backyard for kids to run around in. The pizza oven is amazing although a little tricky to get going if you are not a seasoned pizza oven user ;) You can really relax in this house. It has been beautifully built and very carefully planned with all comforts needed for an escape. nice job Hannah!

  • We recently had the pleasure of staying for the long weekend at Hannah's beautiful home at Mackerel Beach. We stepped off the ferry from Palm Beach, walked a short distance from the wharf and found ourselves in paradise. Hannah's home is situated at the base of the National Park and a short walk from the beach, wharf and entrance to the native bush land. The outdoor entertaining area is the first room you enter upon arrival and it turned out to be our favorite. With a spectacular open plan living space, generous bedrooms, deep relaxing bath, well-stocked gourmet kitchen and perfect location, this is the essential weekend getaway. Hannah was lovely to deal with and made us feel very welcome. As part of our stay, we even had use of the kayaks and stand up paddle board which we thoroughly enjoyed. If you are looking for a peaceful, luxury, well-designed beach house to enjoy all that Mackerel Beach has to offer we would definitely recommend Hannah's home.

  • We had an amazing time in Hannah's house at Mackerel. The house is gorgeous and beautifully designed and decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with an ice cream machine also. Even though it rained for the first two days we had plenty to do, just enjoying time together. The guitar and open fire made our time cosy. We are planning another trip back already.

    Annika2015-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a stunning location. Mackerel Beach was peaceful and perfect for a relaxing few days out of the city. Plenty to do - walking, swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. House was stunning. Tidy and well equipped. Hannah was excellent. Any questions prior to our arrival were answered exceptionally promptly. An excellent host. I'd highly recommend both Mackerel Beach and Hannah's property.

    My place is close to the beach and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the comfy bed, the cosiness, and the high ceilings. My place is good for couples and families (with kids).
    Mackerel Beach is nestled within the Kuringai National Park. It is on the western foreshore of Pittwater, directly opposite Palm Beach. It is WATER ACCESS ONLY only, via a 20 minute trip on the hourly ferry from Palm Beach wharf, or a 2 minute trip by on demand water taxi. There are no shops, only beach bush and a few houses. Wildlife and peace are the trademarks of Mackerel Beach. Bring your food and enjoy our slice of paradise. As it is within the national park, pets are not allowed.
  • Awesome beach house in one of Sydney's most beautiful little beach towns. Peaceful, relaxing, with plenty of things to do. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Paul was in touch regularly to ensure we had a smooth stay. Recommend!

    Great Mackerel Beach, NSW, Australia

    Nestled beside the Kuringai Chase National Park and accessible only by water, 'Cudgegong' is a 3 bedroom house overlooking the sheltered bay of Coasters Retreat on Pittwater, facing The Basin. Wallabies, goannas and brush turkeys forage peacefully on the lawn below the verandah in this very quiet community. Go swimming, bushwalking, fishing or simply relax on the verandah by day and enjoy the open fire by night. Sleep peacefully on brand new mattresses.
    At Cudgegong there are neighbours either side if you need help, but it's a very quite, chilled-out community. Behind the house is a hillside that leads to the Kuringai-Chase National Park. Sheoaks predominate, but if you climb the hill for 10 minutes to the lookout you will find an angophera forest with many wildflowers, especially in spring. Walking tracks to Towlers Bay and other places branch off from the road to West Head, about 40 minutes walk away. Coasters Retreat faces the popular National Parks campground at the Basin, which is busy in holiday times, and Currawong, the NSW government historic holiday camp, a little further away. The feeling is of a bushy enclave with the water providing a spacious outlook, especially from Bennetts Wharf below which offers view across to Barrenjoey Head with its famous lighthouse. The wharf is good for jumping off and fishing. Right next to the wharf is pretty netted beach good for toddlers and getting wet. Further along, past Bonnie Doon, is the corner beach, sandy and flat for good safe swimming and just a little further along around the rocks is The Basin - a large deep netted sea pool surrounded by bush. It's a little tricky getting in across oyster-strewn rocks, but worth it. The other option if you have little kids is to take the ferry around two stops and get off at The Basin, where there is a lot of sandy beach that slopes gently into the water and an excellent picnic area complete with wallabies and elecrtric barbeques.
    Coasters' Retreat is an enclave of about 50 residential houses and holiday homes. The bush walking along Soldiers' Point up to the West Head Road (about 50 minutes away) is unmatched for wildflowers, wildlife and views. You can also walk or mountain-bike to Portuguese Bay, America Bay, Towlers' Bay and other locations in the Kuringai-Chase National Park. There is a map of the area at the house and more information in a folder there.
  • Our family, including 3 kids and grandparents, had a wonderful 5 days at Coasters. The house suited us perfectly, with areas to relax, great views and wildlife visiting the yard. The area is magical, we did a few walks but spent a lot of time swimming. If you have any sort of water craft, I recommend you take it to enhance the experience further. When we were there, there were kayaks and SUPs for hire at the basin for an hourly rate. The ferry trip was easy, although I think it might be cheaper, with groups, to get a water taxi. Madeline's communication was great and gave us clear instructions for the stay. We would definitely return, there is plenty more to do there.

    Valetta2017-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing location for a holiday. We had the most relaxing lovely holiday. We were able to explore a range of beautiful beaches like the basin, currawong beach, makerel beach etc. there were Goannas, wallabies and kookaburras on the front lawna and beautiful views from the house. The house was lovely and Madeline was a lovely easy host to communicate with. It is truly one of those locations that without air b n b you would never get to experience. Would love to bring my family back there again.

    Rebecca2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely magical. Beautiful spot and wonderfully cosy. Reasonably well appointed for full comfort. Would serve a big family perfectly. The house is clean and kitchen has good capacity for cooking. The views are unbeatable and the animals in the garden a delight. Madeline was really helpful and always got in touch with us and replied to our questions. Definitely recommend.

  • HIGHLY RECOMENDED!! Had the best weekend. The place is amazing. The perfect getaway from the Sydney grind. The house is set up with all you will need and the owner is lovely to deal with. If you like the outdoors this is the place for you!

    John2016-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend a stay here. The fire place was already set ready for us to light upon arrival with lovely filtered views from the balcony of Pittwater. Enjoyed many bush walks, ferry trips, wood fires & just waking up in such a tranquil setting. I will definitely be booking here again

    Jonathan 2016-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great natural escape from the city and Madeline responded to messages promptly. Catch L90 bus from Wynyard and then ferry. Recommend climbing Barrenjoey Head, and also the Boathouse, Barrenjoey House and Club Palm Beach (RSL) for coffee or meals.

    Grant2016-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • A great little weekend escape just a short crossing from Palm Beach! Madeline had done a lovely job setting up the place including a ready made fire which was definitely well appreciated. Highly recommended for those looking to take on an adventure right in Sydney's backyard.

  • We had a lovely stay at Betty's beach house, the hosts were so welcoming and had thought of everything to make a stay for the weekend perfect! The house is beautifully decorated and spotless. Great location across from the beach! Thanks again! We would love to stay again in the future!

    Rosemary2016-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. It's in a great location just opposite the beach, is beautifully furnished, with a lovely garden and deck area. Rodger and his wife have thought of everything, even down to a welcome hamper! We loved it, and would highly recommend staying here. I'm sure we'll be back.

    Daniel2016-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved our stay. Rodgers place was warm & lovely, and after meeting Rodger and Sue, it certainly was reflective of them. The home felt like a much loved family home. It was in a great location, close to Pittwater, a short walk (or drive) to the beach, with a coffee shop around the corner, and Palm Beach wine Co at the end of the street for groceries and wine. There was a lovely welcome basket of goodies, and a pantry with a few great basics. It was super clean & warm (we stayed during the winter). I would definitely recommend Rodgers place to stay.

    John2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Rodger & Susie were amazing hosts, warm and very hospitable. They went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. The location and house itself are perfect.

    Sara2017-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Rodger was absolutely fantastic! The house was wonderful and our family really loved their stay. Would highly recommend his place, there was nothing Rodger hadn't thought of, including the fabulous welcome hamper!

    Holly2016-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • A warm welcome by hosts Susie & Rodger. A hamper with delicious goodies. Excellent facilities. Comfortable and spacious. A stroll to Pittwater, bus outside gate, also a cafe for early coffee or breakfast. Much to do inthis neighbourhood. Highly reccommend Betty's.

    Mary2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Rodger and Susie are wonderful hosts. There was a very tastefully stocked and generous welcoming basket, lovely cheeses and fruits in the fridge, and basics in the pantry.The house is the ideal beach house, it is beautiiful (even more so than the pictures let on), very comfortable and has everything one needs, either for a short stay or a more lengthy holiday. My family (including a two and a half year hold and two early teenagers) had a wonderful time there over a 4-day week end - we all appreciated the house, the lovely yard, the hammock, the great coffee shop around the corner, the kid's park for the little one within 50 metres, a pittwater beach across the street, and the walks through town or the bush to get to Ocean Beach. We will definitely return.

    13 reviews
    This sandstone cottage is one of the original cottages on Mackerel Beach. Set on the absolute beach front, North East facing and receiving sun all day long, this gorgeous property has a main house and separate studio with 3 bedrooms comfortably accommodating 8 people. It is just 10 metres from the water and 60 minutes from Sydney CBD.
    The house has a prime beach front location and is situated on a double section enjoying uninterrupted views of the Pittwater, Lion Island, Barrenjoey Heads and Palm Beach. The main bedroom is the house has a queen size bed and large window that looks out over Pittwater - you go to sleep listening to the waves of the ocean and wake up to the most spectacular sunrises over Barrenjoey Heads. There is also a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks which is perfect for the kids (and even the adults). The Tree House, which is a separate studio from the main house, has a queen bed, single bed, its own bathroom and sliding doors onto a private balcony. The house is perfect for 2 families or a group of friends. The kitchen, dining and living room is open plan, opening out onto the deck which has sweeping views of Pittwater and beyond. The kitchen features concrete bench tops, wooden cupboards and a large double sink. It is fully equipped with all the appliances and utensils you would need during your stay, such as an fridge, induction stove top, oven, microwave, Nespresso machine, soda stream, blender, pots & pans plus more. There is also a 6 burner BBQ which guests are welcome to use. There are multiple areas on our property where you can relax and take in the serenity of the area. The front deck has table and chairs to sit 8+ guests comfortably underneath a 6m long awning. The 2nd level has 2 deck chairs and is the most spectacular area to catch some sun. The Tree House has its own deck with table, chairs and deck chairs as well. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room that has Foxtel plus a sound bar, stereo and DVD player. The house is surrounded by a national park meaning Mackerel Beach is accessible only by water, but is serviced on an hourly basis by ferry as well as water taxi and barge services. The beach is extremely safe for children and is suitable for a number of water sports including fishing. There are wonderful bush walks through the national park and an abundance of wild life.
  • This is the sort of place one wants to remain secret--but the joy of discovering it is too great not to share the surprise! Wonderful tranquil surrounds coupled with loving attention to simple warm design that welcomes. Perfect.

    Rachel2014-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Richards house at Mackeral Beach was amazing and Richard was a responsive and helpful guest. Despite the initial trouble locating the property in the dark and rain with three children in tow, we were thrilled to arrive and settle in to the small but very well appointed and beautifully decorated cottage. Absolutely everything you could need for a comfortable stay was at your fingertips, not to mention the beach, view, sunrises and an amazing garden, and our family of 5 had a very memorable and unique long weekend there. The only thing worth noting for families with young kids is to be aware that the 'tree house', whilst stunning, is probably not suitable for children under the age of 8-10 if sleeping alone. Despite this we would return in a heartbeat and recommend to all! Thank you Richard!

    Emily2016-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot with loads of character. Plenty of info from Richard to make sure we had a great stay- which we did. Thanks again.

    John2016-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning! Relaxing, charming, private, secluded and stunning again. A sanctuary. We loved being there and so will you. Although don't go! We'd hate to think it will get booked out. We want to go back! Thanks for having us, Richard. You were a helpful and kind host and we hope to deal with you again. You have a wonderful place!

    Wayne & Kate2014-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic location and great house. Provides a true 'away from it all' experience while still being close to Sydney. We we're pleasantly surprised by the beach - the kids had a great time playing on the sand below, while parents could have a wine at the house and watch from above.

    Callum2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the Beach House is a stunner - unspoilt panoramic views across the pittwater - it's truely unique and one of our favourites. We had a wonderful family holiday our children loved the outdoor spaces and had loads of freedom within earshot of us. The house is well appointed and the kitchen has everything you need and more. Richard was a great host and easy to get in touch with. We stayed for 2 weeks and the weather overall was fantastic. We were thankful for this as the main house is small for two families (particularly when it's raining and you can't get outside). One small gripe was the main bathroom which is really in need of an update. The shower drain blocked a couple of times which we had to pump out. There were ants at night coming through the cracks in the wall. It was all pretty basic. The house is not cheap over the school holidays and at the rate we were paying we would have expected this to be in better condition. Overall we had a great stay. PS we thankfully didn't see the 1.5m goana roaming the property, just possums and wallabies!

    Melinda2016-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • The most ideal location if you are looking for quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed with our 2 children aged 2 and 4 and my husbands parents. The house is beautiful and is equipped with everything you might need. Steps from the house take you straight onto Mackerel Beach....bliss.

    Jennifer2015-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful property that feels like a home away from home. Well stocked with everything you need to be fully relaxed, comfortable and self cater. Beautifully appointed and lots of space as well as privacy if needed. We stayed in the outside cabin - wonderful experience waking up each day to the sunrise and view - the room bathed in sun during the morning. Perfect beach location, amazing views and the sights and sounds of nature on your doorstep. Richard was very communicative, accommodating and helpful all the way through our stay. Will definitely stay again.

    My place is close to the beach. You’ll love my place because of the location, the ambiance, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
    There are 3 bedrooms in the house. The main and 2nd both have queen beds and there is a tri bunk in the 3rd room - this has a double bed on the bottom and a single bed on the top. There is also a trundle single as well if you need to sleep 1 more
  • We stayed with my Mum and Dad and our family of four. A perfect long weekend for Sydney-siders. Great fireplace and family area for cooler days. We enjoyed fishing at the wharf and the bush walks. Highly recommend

    Katherine2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful little area, I could just keep coming back. The house felt like a home away from home. I went along with a group of friends and we cooked and hung out on the comfy lounge by the wood fire, we fished and beach walked. It was a really lovely weekend.

    Stay at one of Sydney's cleanest beaches just 1 hour by car from the city plus a ferry ride from Palm Beach. You'll be amazed at how beautiful and relaxing Mackerel can be. Swim, kayak, paddle board or walk in the national park. Breakfast included. Other meals available ($ on request).
    Your bedroom has a queen size bed with an external deck and leafy outlook. With leafy decks all around the house you're bound to find a chair or a hammock to read or just rest in. There are some great walks in the area and of course the beach.
    Great Mackerel Beach is a fabulous community of sun seekers of all ages. There are about 100 houses but only 30 who live here full time. You can only get here by water. It is one of the most serene locations in Sydney. That is unless you don't like the sounds of birds and cicadas. The beach can get busy on public holidays but generally the few people who are here come to relax, fish, swim, kayak, walk through the national park, or just find a hammock and rest.
  • This was our second stay at Great Mackerel with Suzie & Joe, and as expected, had another marvellous time. Cosy & relaxing with the fire going a superb food. Can't wait to come back again to our favourite Airbnb spot!!

    Anna2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Suzie and Joe's beautiful home. They were incredibly welcoming and we really enjoyed their company. Suzie cooked us delicious meals and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. I'm certain we'll return to this little piece of paradise!

  • We were so disappointed in the boat. It was a splurge for our wedding anniversary and we were really excited. The boat is tired and not like the pictures. The fridge and kitchen was full of old food. We had to start a generator to get any power and this was smelly and loud. There is nothing about this in the description. It also says WIFI, which doesn't exist. the upstairs bathroom was really smelly and awful. Then the BBQ wasn't working and we couldn't get the stove to work because the host didn't leave instructions and was unreachable. We ended up leaving after trying to cook for two hours. The host offered to refund us and then changed his mind. This is certainly not a luxury listing.

    Has a large deck with BBQ with water view. There is also an additional sitting area at the back which also has stunning water views.

  • We stayed at Manju's place for the long weekend in October, and had a fantastic time! The kitchen, dining room and lounge room are all open plan which makes for a great entertaining space, and large glass sliding doors open onto the enormous deck with amazing views - we really felt like we were on holiday waking up to those views every morning, and watching the sunset in the evenings. It's a ten minute drive to Palm Beach, and a ten minute drive the other way to Avalon for all the supermarkets and restaurants, so it's very conveniently located. It's also a very close walk to Barrenjoey House, which is a fantastic restaurant - so being able to walk home from there meant all of us could enjoy some wine without having to drive or call a taxi. We had a brilliant time and came away feeling very relaxed!

    Amanda2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay here in Palm Beach. The host's communication was clear and friendly and check-in and check-out were very easy. The house is comfortable and clean with a newly renovated kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms are basic but comfortable with nice linens. The house is very conveniently located on Barranjoey Rd with a nice view over the Pittwater (though this brings some traffic noise). We had a great stay for a weekend and house was perfectly suited to our party size of 5 guests.
