Established in 2010, we have accepted over 350 bookings and 3,000 guests.... after some 90 very positive reviews, we stopped asking our guests for feedback as it is obvious that Hargraves Beach House is one of the most popular places to stay on the NSW Central Coast.
Our weekend stays are like a 3 day weekend because you can arrive anytime after 11am on a Friday and you can check out on Sunday anytime around 5pm - a true LONG WEEKEND every weekend. Take Friday off and enjoy 3 full days.... and still time to return to Sydney with only an hour's travel...

Proximity to the beach, the range and quality of European kitchen and bathroom fittings, fixtures and appliances are second to none.
