Sanctuary By the Sea
Apartment in Mona Vale, NSW
Imagine being lulled to sleep by emerald waves caressing golden sands.
'Sanctuary by the Sea' provides a beachy cottage atmosphere that welcomes you to the self-contained apartment. This spacious apartment includes a kitchen, dining and lounge area, bedroom, bathroom and a separate laundry with washing and ironing facilities.
It is a retreat from the heat as the apartment is very cool in summer; the terra cotta floors add to this but also give a touch of the Mediterranean with the comfort of hand woven rugs. The lead light door opens to a secluded courtyard that offers both open and covered leisure areas.
The track to the beautiful beach of Warriewood is to the left of the dwelling. This cul-de-sac means there is no traffic noise and ample free street parking above the beach. Delightful restaurants and the famous 'Sunrise Cafe' are only a two minute walk from this private and quiet hideaway.
Mona Vale golf course is a short stroll away and there are two beach rock pools within a short walking distance.
The Sanctuary offers accommodation for singles and couples. Arrangements can be made for a cot. Both children and animals are welcome. The secure, enclosed courtyard offers security for both children and pets.
Being close to Narrabeen Lagoon allows visitors to engage in fishing and kayaking.
The intimate Warriewood Beach has a delightful cafe in the surf club. Lifeguards patrol the beach, providing safety for all swimmers and surfers.
Scenic bush paths wind their way along the coast, allowing magnificant views of both the beach and hinterland.
The protected waters of Pittwater allow for sailing and the reliable ferry service runs enchanting day trips up to Ettalong and beyond.
At the end of Bruce Street is a bus service taking you to Manly and the ferry service to the City and the Westfield Warringah Mall Shopping Centre in Brookvale.

excellent location, very clean, perhaps not as modern as some places, no ensuite, however reasonable cost, only disappointed was lack of information of the area/instructions on telly , no shelf in bathroom for products but very minor ...would stay again but not at high summer prices....would wish for more modern accommodation at such cost!

Truly a Sanctuary by the Sea
My stay at Sanctuary by the Sea was just ideal. A very cozy cottage with all you need available and a very comfortable bed. The owner is a lovely warm and welcoming lady. Total privacy, peace and quiet, handy to cafes. It was the retreat I needed.

We recently stayed at Sanctuary by the Sea and I would highly recommend it. The dwelling is long and spacious with everything you need in the well appointed kitchen, TV with pay TV, queen sized bed, bathroom with stained glass feature windows.The furnishings and decorations are unique and beautiful and the atmosphere warm and homely. Outside there is a very private large sunny tiled terrace with pot plants, chairs and sun lounges. On top of the garage is a beautiful covered area with a comfortable day bed replete with cushions, a long table and benches, and a view of the ocean. What a perfect place for breakfast or a glass of wine at sunset! And just a 3 minute walk to the beach.I dreamed about living there permanently! Do not hesitate to stay here. You will be delighted.

Absolutely perfect place to stay
We were spending a week in Mona Vale to be near our son and his family. The location was perfect for us being above Warriewood Beach, close to Mona Vale's shops and easily accessible to all amenities between Mona Vale and Sydney. It is a secluded, very well-equipped apartment with its own very private (and very pretty) courtyard. Our family all found it charming and we used the garden for family gatherings. It is well-furnished and feels homely and comfortable. It is fully equipped with every domestic appliance one could wish for and has one of the most effective showers I have ever experienced. The owner is delightful and very welcoming, having created a home-from-home for her visitors. There is also a very comfortable terrace area which offers views of the ocean.
