Elegance. Style. Simplicity. And nature. The best of all worlds awaits you at the Muses' Retreat at MacMasters Beach.

This property is special. Recently renovated and newly available to guest, people comment on secluded and serene it feels. After staying, anyone will feel relaxed, revived and restored. Re-boot your mojo. And creativity. Just an easy 90 minute drive from Sydney.

Surrounded by nature - the greenery of the bush and the lush tropical garden envelopes this two bedroom self-contained apartment / cottage. MacMasters Beach is a 10-20 minute stroll through the national park, or less than 3 minutes away in the car.

Designed with a faintly Balinese aesthetic, the garden path wends its way down the from the ridge until guests feel 100 miles from care. it is the entire top floor of a house, built into the slope of the block, so it feels like a house in itself.

Adjoining the beautiful Bouddi National Park, this property is less than 3 minutes drive to the MacMasters Beach, or you can take a leisurely stroll through the national park if that's more your thing. Macs is known as an unspoilt, undeveloped beach - there is a cafe at the surf club - and it is particularly friendly for children given the sheltered position and a shallow ocean pool cut into the rock.

This property is ideal for: a romantic getaway; two couples having a weekend away, a small family who appreciates the serenity of nature.

This property is elegant, yet livable. There are many antiques, handmade Persian rugs, original artworks which create a restful, yet relaxed aesthetic. The property has everything you'd expect or want.

There is a minimum stay of two nights for all bookings including a Friday or Saturday night.

This property is designed for four visitors - but two extra visitors may in some cases be able to stay using the lounge bed for an extra charge. Similarly, pets can stay for an additional charge of $30 per night, as long as house rules are followed - including no animals on any furniture or left unattended.

The area features:

- Superb beaches, including exceptional leash off areas for dogs;

- Many walks through the national parks - guides are in the bookshelves;

- Outstanding fishing - from the rock fishing to charter boat hire;

- Cafes and restaurants from the cafes attached to surf clubs, Hardys Bay Bistro with its outlook to Brisbane Water to the five star Bells at Killcare.

- Iconic Avoca Beach theatre with a history all of its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gem of a place Fiona is a lovely host and the place is so warm, welcoming and cosy. We arrived during thunderstorms and Fiona had gone out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed to get through the short blackout which had hit the whole area. The unit is 5 mins walk to the beach and we loved just hanging out there so we barely left other than to walk on the beach. Thanks, Fiona for being a lovely host with a great place - I will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing holiday Beautiful bush setting close to the beaches. Enjoyed feeding the king parrots on the deck each morning. Muses Retreat is elegantly fitted out with everything that we needed for a relaxing holiday done in style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Felt like home, but better! This is a very comfortable, secluded hideaway in a delightful setting in bushland. After a long, exhausting day we walked in to Muses Retreat and completely relaxed. The ambience is so inviting and particularly suited to couples, although there is room for others. Fiona has the place beautifully furnished and stocked with all you might need. She even includes fully made beds with quality linens and fresh towels. Milk, bread and chocolate provided too! The location is great with easy access to the beach and bush. We absolutely love this place and have already recommended it to friends. Fiona was prompt to reply to our questions before we arrived and readily available when we were there. We can't wait to return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and charming place for a week-end ! We spent a great week-end surrounded by nature and artistic furnitures from different places of the world. Fiona prepared us a warm welcome and had been really nice to make us comfortable. Last but not least, the kitchen is well equiped if you are keen on cooking. Good spot in the central coast !
