Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, house with gardens and outdoor BBQ entertaining area, 10min walk to Whale Beach. We have Sydney's best surfing beaches and stunning Pittwater inlet for sailing, kayaking. Nearby Avalon has cafes, bookstore, shops, cinema. Regular bus to City and other beaches. WiFi and TV, DVD.

The Space

The detached house is light and airy and has polished wood floors and is great for entertaining, indoor or outdoor. All bedrooms have built in robes (one queen, one double and one single bed). Shower has massage function. In the mornings the only thing that will wake you are the amazing sounds of exotic Australian native birds including Kookaburra, Lorikeets, Cockatoos, Currawongs, etc. Great and safe for children too and friendly neighbours. Free parking in low crime area. Go boating, kayaking in Pittwater, lots of great walks; ferry to Kuringai National Park and Central Coast; great restaurants at Avalon, Whale and Palm beaches and boutique cinema and great bookshop in Avalon.

The house sleeps 5 people comfortably.

Guest Access

During your stay you have the run of the whole house and gardens and we would love you make our home yours for the visit. WiFi, TV including Foxtel, DVD. Feel free to BBQ outside or cook indoors or stroll to local eateries such as Cranzgots where the locals go and bring their own wine.

Interaction with Guests

We will not be in the house when you visit however our good friend Julianna or daughter Isobel will look after you and have the keys for collection. They will gladly help you in any way possible. We can be contacted by email at any time (email hidden)

The Neighborhood

Traffic free, peaceful and friendly, surrounded by native gum trees, tree ferns and exotic flowers and other plants. Two minute walk to bus stop for City or other beaches. The region's best croissants and treats can be found at La Banette bakery in Avalon. Italian, Thai, French, Spanish, Indian, Chinese and Australian cuisine are all available locally. Good medical facilities, yoga and Pilates also available locally.

If you like water try surfing, whale watching, boating and head to Sydney centre for theatres and sight seeing too. Walking/jogging is hard to beat around here and there is a links golf course at Palm Beach and a 9 hole one at Avalon and further courses at Mona Vale and beyond. Local tennis club. Great area for families with children and for anyone loving the outdoors.

  • Kieran's place is very nice, big and tidy.

    You will find everything you need.

    It's a great place if you are willing to chill and rest.

    I was moving interstate so I spent a few days there whilst I was looking for my new home. That was great and it felt like home.

    Not even mentioning the BBQ on the backyard. Had a great time there with my family over the weekend.

    I definitely recommend Kieran's place. You will love it.

  • We loved this place and Keiran was an excellent host. My family and i were in Sydney for a wedding and this house was perfect for our stay well located close to the beach, shops and bus stop. Great pizza place within walking distance as well as close to great cafes and restaurants in nearby Avalon. Communication was great and I would recommend this place to anyone. We would definitely return.

  • Lovely place.

  • Kieran's home was a great place for our family to stay after just moving to Sydney from the US. They left eggs, bacon, and wine in the fridge for us and we felt comfortable and at home there. They have a wonderful neighbor who takes care of the place and was a great help to us as we were getting accustomed to the area. Whether you're transferring here and need temporary furnished accommodation for your family or just want to spend your holiday at the beautiful beaches of Avalon, I highly recommend staying here. Thank you, Keiran, for your hospitality!
