Family-friendly Beach House opposite beautiful Merewether Beach
We have five children and we love travelling, so we know all the things that families look for in a holiday rental. We love bringing families and friends together to create magical memories in a spectacular location.
Why Amanda chose Merewether
When we purchased the property a few years ago, it was an old 1950s beach cottage, and was the only traditional beach house remaining on the waterfront in Newcastle. We had a vision to restore and renovate it to create modern holiday accommodation for families and small groups visiting Newcastle because we realised that our beautiful city was attracting tourists and business visitors but had very little accommodation that would allow guests to truly feel at home while also having lots of luxurious touches. We spent almost a year working onsite every day with wonderful local builders and tradespeople to bring our vision of the perfect holiday home to life.
What makes this House unique
The Beach House at Merewether has breathtaking ocean views, all the modern technology you could dream of, and everything you could possibly need for a luxury beach holiday creating lifelong memories. The spa and fireplace will help you wind down and the house is within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants and scenic lookouts so you can leave the car at home and truly relax. We have thought of everything - sheer as well as block out blinds, still and sparkling filtered water on tap, your choice of two different shower heads depending on your preference (rainwater style or handheld wall mounted), heated towel racks, switchable frosted glass on the front door and master bedroom to give you the choice of admiring the view or getting instant privacy, gaming device points in the second (children's) bedroom, an additional low recess in the shower walls for ease of shaving legs, lots of storage space, power points in bedroom cupboards for charging devices, shoe and trouser racks, Sonos sound system, Netflix, surfboard racks, outdoor drinks fridge, outdoor shower, bike racks in secure outdoor cupboard, double oven, warming drawer, all the appliances and utensils you could ever possibly need (including large sandwich press, coffee machine, rice cooker, pasta maker, children's crockery and cutlery, etc), Dyson stick vacuum, and a selection of board games, children's and adults books.

Home away from home
Beautiful house, well designed and quality finishes. Awesome
views, quiet neighbourhood, can't ask for much more.
Would recommend installing a microwave. also don't leave expensive shoe out on the front porch. Mine were stolen
Thank you for staying at our property and for your lovely comments about the house and location. There is a microwave: the second oven is a combination oven/microwave - we leave it in microwave mode and instructions on how to use it are in the Guest Manual in the house. I’m sorry that you didn’t realise! We hope to see you again soon.
Pinnacle of Perfection!
We have stayed at “The Beach House” 3 times in the past 6 months and every visit is a delight! From the breathtaking ocean views out the immaculate Master bedroom window to the pristine hot tub in the back. We loved staying here with family, as the separate Television areas accommodated everyone...and also as a romantic getaway with just us! Every detail is attended to and the checkin/checkout was a breeze.
Thank you Amanda!! We will be back soon
Excellet property. Great location.....
Easy,clean and very well presented property
The Beach House at Merewether is in the perfect spot to explore all that Newcastle and the Hunter Valley have to offer. The house is located opposite a fantastic surf beach, close to great bushwalking tracks at Glenrock Lagoon and a short walk from the beautiful ANZAC Memorial Walk, an excellent vantage point to spot migrating whales and dolphins. It is also only a short stroll from Merewether Ocean Baths, a park with children's playground, and seaside coffee shops.
