Welcome to The Boathouse Forty Baskets Beach, a truly unique and magical two storey sandstone property on the waters edge overlooking Sydney Harbour from North Harbour to Manly Wharf.
The Boathouse is located on the Spit to Manly walkway adjacent to the golden sandy harbour beaches of Reef and Forty Baskets Beach, the latter with an enclosed harbour swimming pool. A perfect location for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing or just relaxing on the beach watching the world go by.
Beautiful birds, water dragon lizards, bandicoots and echidnas are regular visitors to the garden surrounding The Boathouse. Turtles, dolphins, whales, seals and little penguins have also been seen in the harbour directly in front of The Boathouse.
The Boathouse is a five minute drive, 10 minute kayak or a leisurely 40 minute walk along the beautiful harbour foreshore to Manly and is adjacent to the Sydney National Harbour Park which has an abundance of flora and fauna and spectacular views of the harbour, North and South Heads and the City.
The Boathouse is furnished at an executive level in a mid-century style and is fully self-contained including all kitchen utensils, linen, beach and bath towels. It has loft style bedroom with a queen size bed, lounge, TV, DVD, WI-FI, full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer facilities, iron and ironing board. A weekly clean and linen change is included in the cost of your stay. There is an alarm system and small hotel style safe. The Boathouse has its own private deck with a BBQ. Guests of The Boathouse will have access to our kayaks or alternatively a secure space is provided for guests to store their own kayak or stand up paddleboard with direct waterfront access.
There is parking available at the main house level for a small car no bigger than a VW Golf or similar. The Boathouse is located right on the waters edge which is approximately 80 low rise sandstone steps down from the main house.
If you are looking for a romantic sojourn, a peaceful break, a creative work space or an active getaway, The Boathouse Forty Baskets Beach is all this and more.
