This 100 year old house offers a rustic & retro beach house experience. Kept simple, comfortable & wifi-less it offers classic fun including jigsaws, games, table tennis & yes a small TV & DVD. It is only a 5 minute bush walk to stunning Blackhead Beach or 10 minutes through a sub-tropical rainforest to the shops. Once you've arrived there's no need to get in your car til you're ready to go home.
This is a much loved beach house & a great place to unwind, get active & reconnect with yourself & your family. There are ocean baths, beach walking & exploring to do with a patrolled swimming beach. We welcome your dogs and it's a dog friendly beach, however the front fencing is only about 1 metre high so best for small dogs and the neighbours have dogs too, so one's that don't get too barky would be welcome.
Frida's is close to the beach and catches a great ocean breeze, there are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living area, and free standing fans for back up, no air conditioning.
Walking is optimal with everything you need within a 10 minute walk including the beach, fish n chip shop, shopping centre that has a FoodWorks supermarket, pharmacy, cafe, library, post office, a butcher that sells local fish and a fantastic Indian Restaurant. Another 2 minutes up the road is a newly refurbished bistro and hotel and the surf club runs 'sippers' on Sundays.
This is a wifi free house, there is good mobile coverage from Telstra & Optus, other providers are variable.
The bathroom has a shower over its clawfoot bath and we have an outdoor shower with hot and cold. The bath may not be a suitable shower for the elderly or anyone a little unstable on their feet, but it is a great shower and the bath is perfect for a long relaxing soak.
We are LGBTIQ friendly and this is the perfect honeymoon venue
Frida's has a wrap around verandah on three sides, it's like a room outside and you can move with the sun or hide in the shade. On one side the veranda is about 1 metre in height without railings and that's why we've recommended not suitable for children under 3 years, you can use your own judgement.
Off street parking under a carport for two vehicles and plenty of street parking
We provide linen, sheets & towels, please bring your own beach towels.
