Voted The Best Town in Australia by Australian Travellers Magazine, Yamba's most exclusive heritage beach home, Allawah, is now open for holiday tenure to a discerning clientele, who like the owners, value and appreciate quality of life.
This executive appointed two-storey residence with its traditional beach house design is located south of Yambas iconic 150 year old lighthouse. Overlooking secluded Convent Beach, Lovers Point and Pippi Beach, each level has expansive views of the Pacific Ocean.
Circa 1907, Allawah was tastefully renovated by its owners a few years ago and further complimented with pavilion linked verandas, protected courtyards and open decks to incorporate inside outside living.
Casual and stylish with a design based environmental backdrop and the extensive use of quality timber are the key elements of Allawah that attracted the attention of NSW premier lifestyle magazine North Coast Living to feature this classic four bedroom beach home in their magazine.
Old-world charm furnishings comfortably hold their own alongside contemporary and multimedia appliances creating an unobtrusive ambience throughout the beach house. This same ambience is amplified for families who need or want separate areas of indulgence at arms length from their kids.
Down time or holidays are not about spending all your time snuggled up in a bed wrapped in quality linen and listening to the oceans lullaby
From Allawah it is a two minute walk to the beach. The north side of Lovers Point at Convent Beach is protected where you can stroll, swim, snorkel or investigate the rock pools. The south side of Lovers Point is an open beach where you can pick any spot for a surf.
Lovers Point is an ideal place to watch migratory whales May to September and resident dolphins at play.
