Wake up to spectacular ocean views and sounds, watch the whales from the deck, hear the black cockatoos and just unwind and enjoy.

'Apricari' means to embrace the sun for relaxation and pleasure. And that is exactly what you will do here. Unspoilt beaches, great surf, hiking trails, mountain bike tracks, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, golf, koala art, wine tasting; all within easy reach. Shelly beach is just 50m away or a 2 minute stroll. Bartlett or 'little beach' 5 minute walk, Sharkies 10-15 min walk via the head land loop, and Rainbow patrolled beach 10-15 walk. Or hop on a bike or in the car and you are there in no time. Or just simply relax on the verandah, in the garden or on the lounge.

Apricari is a two story house that easily suits two families with its 4 bedrooms, rumpus room and 3 bathrooms. With its two levels it is big enough to accommodate up to 8-10 people and yet cosy enough to also cater to 2-4 people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect holiday house We had an excellent stay at Apricari, our 3 families had plenty of room, the kitchen has everything you need, cupboard is well stocked and the chocolate gifts were so appreciated! Everything is clean and our friends with their 18 month old really appreciated the high chair and gate above the stairs. Beautiful views from the veranda, lovely gardens and close to the beach and lovely headland walks. It was all so easy and friendly to organise. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquility We had a lovely time at Apricari. The view is amazing and this time we could see whales passing by in the ocean. They looked so happy on a sunny day, flicking their tails up in the air. The coastal backdrop is abundant with wildlife such as birds of prey, honeyeaters, black cockatoos, doves and lorikeets. Inside Apricari the furnishings are comfortable and allow for a relaxing stay. Beautiful timber floors are present upstairs and the bathrooms are modern. A veranda runs around two sides of the house, which is lovely to use to take in the fresh air and natural surrounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Property We had an amazing holiday, enjoying the tranquil and relaxing surrounds of the property. The view over the headland to the ocean is beautiful and a range of birds visit the native vegetation just behind the house. A sea breeze is always felt when the doors are open, providing the perfect environment for a nice afternoon nap on the couches on the deck. Full Foxtel is enabled on the upstairs tv providing great night time entertainment. A short walk away is a peaceful beach and reserve. Trails also weave their way through the headland reserve. We loved it!
