Whale Beach B&B is set in a tropical, leafy, quiet street of Avalon/Whale Beach and is just 3 minutes walk to a most beautiful view over stunning northern beaches and headlands. You can choose between visiting Avalon, Whale or Palm Beach, all 20 min walk or 3 min car ride away.
We get lots of guests booking out the whole 3 or 4 bedroom property as a 'Holiday House' but 1, 2, 3 or 4 rooms can be booked. (Stayz may quote you on one room so check rates with us if booking more than one room.) We are very reasonable for the area and do get full at weekends so book early!
Each room has it's own bathroom, Queen bed, TV and fridge and is stylishly decorated with a 'beachy' theme. Excellent value for location and standard of accommodation. Come and stay for longer periods if over visiting family but wanting your 'own space'!
There is a lovely Lounge/Dining/kitchen leading on to a covered deck with bbq. There is air con in the Lounge/Dining, fans in rooms and cozy gas log fire in Winter and heaters in all rooms.
Very popular with wedding guests as we are close to popular wedding venues such as Moby Dicks, Jonahs, The Boathouse etc. A 2 night minimum booking usually applies at weekends. A third or 4th night can be added on at a lower rate. Book out the whole place as a 'Holiday Home' and enjoy having bedrooms with private facilities. Cheaper rates for longer stays. Rates with or without continental breakfast. (Continental breakfast an optional extra.)
Comfortable, homely and 'beachy' feel to this boutique B&B. Friendly and helpful hosts (but we aren't intrusive at all!) At the rear of the property is our lovely 'Garden Retreat' for only $90-$170! Your pet may be able to stay with you too! (Discuss first) This room can be booked as a 4th bedroom if needed or on it's own.
The property is located in Careel Head Road (off the lower end of Whale Beach Road). It is only a 2 minute walk to buses to the City and to a nice selection of restaurants. You can choose from a great Thai, Indian or Italian restaurant and can easily walk home!
Beautiful beaches like Avalon, Whale and Palm Beach are all close by. There're also some great bushwalks or runs such as Bangalley Head or up to Barrenjoey lighthouse.
If your feeling energetic grab a game of tennis on one of five courts at the Careel Bay tennis club - a 5 minute walk away. Swim or surf at the beach or swim in one of the ocean rock pools.
If you just want to indulge yourself head for one of the fabulous Avalon/Palm Beach restaurants, get a facial or a massage at one of the excellent beauty salons or wander around the wonderful gift, clothing and homeware shops.
Things to do in this gorgeous Pittwater area.
Pittwater is the Northern peninsula of Sydney's Northern Beaches, about 45 minutes from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's a narrow strip of land with peaceful bays on one side (Clareville, Taylor's Point) and surf beaches on the other; Avalon, Bilgola, Whale and Palm beaches - all stunning golden sand beaches with sea pools.
A short ferry ride will take you over to The Basin which is a picturesque swimming lagoon in National Park bushland where you'll always see wallabies and native parrots as well as other wildlife. There are wonderful bush walks there too. Hire a tinny to go there!
