Our recently renovated Log Cabin retreat overlooks the beautiful waters of Clareville, Pittwater. Set amongst lush tropical gardens, NW aspect beautiful sunsets and a stone's throw from the beach, it is the perfect getaway for couples, small groups or families.
The location of the Log Cabin and the interior design is such that it is the perfect location for either a short stay visit or a longer duration spanning weeks or months. To date, we have warmly welcomed Sydney, interstate and international travelers. The Cabin is large enough to be a 'home away from home' whilst international travelers wish to base themselves on the Northern Beaches visiting family or looking to 'trial' the amazing lifestyle of this unique and very special area.
Bird life is prolific and the open plan design of the cabin with two loft bedrooms creates a spacious and peaceful ambiance in a beach side location. The Cabin has been recently renovated to include all the modern comforts one needs: reverse cycle air conditioning, very comfortable beds and lovely linen, beautiful artwork and extensive pull out draws for clothes. There is a modern self contained kitchen with all the latest appliances, including a large fridge, coffee machine, convection oven, ceramic cook top, microwave, dishwasher, filtered water, wide selection of kitchen crockery and cooking utensils and dual washer/dryer located in the bathroom.
The surrounding gardens offer a tranquil setting and one can relax in the outside chairs or enjoy a wine on the deck.
Sit back and get cosy in the cabin with everything you will need, or explore the many wonderful parts of nearby Avalon, Palm Beach and Clareville. It is up to you
Guests are welcome to enter the property via the driveway access which makes unloading luggage easy as the driveway is steep. Once settled, guests may park here rather than on the street.
Small families are very welcome. The second loft bedroom containing 2 single beds is accessed via a spiral staircase. For safety reasons, we have installed child safety gates top and bottom and we request that this is used for any children under the age of 4 years. To maximise the benefits of open plan living with loft bedrooms - secure, compliant and attractive glass balustrading defines each bedroom. The second loft room containing 2 single beds has block-out blinds to provide privacy from the rest of the Cabin.
For young children, we have a portable cot with linen, high chair and a toy box as well.
All linen is provided including sheets, bathroom and beach towels. In addition to our stand up paddle board and children's surf boards, guests are very welcome to use the beach umbrella.
Guests are more than welcome to utilise the weber BBQ that we have on the deck and take the stand up paddle board across the road and enjoy the calm waters of Pittwater. We have a selection of children's surf boards that guests are most welcome to take to the beach as well.
Wifi is available as well as IPhone/IPod docking for music. There is a large TV and DVD player and a collection of books, magazines and board games to relax with as well.
Whilst the Cabin affords 1 Queen size bed and 2 single beds, we can accomodate an extra guest with a very comfortable mattress and linen. This does incur an additional charge of $50 per night.
The cabin is situated on the same property as the owners residence, although it is completely separate and private. Where possible, we will always make ourselves available should guests require interaction during their stay, without being intrusive.
Clareville/Avalon is such a unique neighborhood in Sydney. The proximity to arguably the best beaches in Sydney, coupled with the casual lifestyle of a close knit community, makes it a beautiful place for people to visit and fall in love with. We have found it to be a very safe and friendly place to live. Clareville Kiosk opposite the beach is a must for a special lunch or dinner. There are many great cafes, restaurants and bars in Avalon, beautiful home wares shops to stroll through, a great bookstore and a lovely cinema. Just 10 minutes further north in Palm Beach, there is the iconic Boathouse for breakfast or lunch, great Fish & chips, a fantastic walk up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse and ferries that open up the many beautiful beaches of Pittwater and the Central Coast.
Our log cabin is directly opposite Pittwater. One can enjoy beautiful walks along the foreshore or access Clareville Reserve in a short 10 minute stroll. We are also situated very close to our local Clareville 'Hilltop' shops and a 20 minute walk into Avalon shopping village. Car access is ideal here, but there is also a bus service 191 & 192 that operates on our street and can take guests into Avalon and on from there.
