The Treehouse is back in business for the summer period, and into autumn. We've changed a few details. Our minimum booking is now four nights over the holiday season with early check-in and late check-out. In other words four nights, five days. Long weekends it's a three-night minimum ... other times just two nights.

Pittwater's hidden valley:

It's the perfect retreat - summer and winter - The Treehouse at Mackerel Beach. The two-bedroom, two-storey cottage is surrounded by tree tops, overlooking Mackerel Beach's enchanting valley - the area's best-kept secret. Enjoy a sunny, north-facing deck. Be refreshed and invigorated by the valley's crisp, clean air. Lorrikeets, kookaburras and king parrots are frequent visitors. So are wallabies and goannas. Shy lyre birds sing everyday and sometimes dance in the back garden, which extends into Kuring-gai National Park.

Best beach on Pittwater:

The beach is a five-minute stroll down grassy Monash Avenue. There are no cars, just a few golf buggies and lots of wheelbarrows for cartage. The swimming is safe and clean in the calm sea of Pittwater. The bushwalks are stunning. There are two kayaks stored at The Treehouse available for guests to use - and treat with respect.

Water access only:

Mackerel Beach is directly across Pittwater from the Palm Beach Ferry Wharf on Barrenjoey Road. Access is by ferry, water taxi or "tinnie". Check ferry timetables at the Palm Beach Ferry website.

Sophisitcated Seclusion:

The Treehouse is not only delightful and comfortable, but it's also superbly equipped with a new kitchen and modern appliances which include a microwave, dishwasher, water-efficient washing machine and a drier. There's also basic Foxtel, a DVD player, sound system, and a landline. There is a gas barbecue on the deck. The main bedroom has a small en suite. Both rooms have queen beds. There's a single bed in an open-plan area upstairs.

Number of guests:

The maximum number of guests is strictly four. The Treehouse is best suited to one or two couples.

Linen supplied:

We provide all bed linen, blankets and bath towels. But it's BYO beach towels.

No parties:

Parties and functions are strictly not allowed.

No pets:

By law cats are prohibited and dogs are discouraged, with strict regulations. Out of respect for the wildlife here we do not allow pets of any sort at The Treehouse. We also ask you not to feed the wildlife because it interferes with their natural habitat and can encourage aggressive behaviour.


The house has tank water for all cooking and washing. It is precious. Please use it wisely. The toilets and the garden hoses operate on bore water.


There are no shops at all on Mackerel Beach so you bring your own food and drink. The Treehouse supplies some basics - the details supplied when a booking is made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tranquil escape in the bushland behind the beach This lovely property is located in the bushland behind Mackerel beach, only a few minutes walk to the beach. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a lovely entertaining deck that was perfect for my father's 70th birthday. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the house (and all items in the kitchen) too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stay at Mackerel beach We had an amazing time at the Treehouse. The house is lovely and very well equipped (we love to cook and we found everything we needed), located 5 minutes from the beach but already in the heart of the national park's forest. We loved the view on surrounding tree tops from the bedrooms. The big terrace at the front is ideal for dinners and bbq. Have already recommended it to friends !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family Retreat Property is well maintained and in such a quiet spot. Plenty to do for the kids with walks, swimming at the beach, fishing and playing with the other children in the area. Definitely a place to unwind and relax without having to travel out of Sydney.
