The Space

Gorgeous home in on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Our home is in Clareville, only a forty-five minute drive from the city of Sydney and about an hour from the airport. It’s a great retreat for the weekend or a stopover to recoup and relax.

We are a few minutes from Avalon as well as Whale and Palm Beach, and only few minutes walk to Paradise and Clareville Beach. Surfing beaches are minutes away. A few minutes walk you can find a wonderful sheltered swimming beach aptly named Paradise. The king tides are a treat.
There is also a bus stop 30 meters down the street.

From our back balcony we enjoy panoramic views across Pittwater to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. You will find it is tranquil, quiet and relaxing.

The accommodation is a private room with stunning views and private deck. Facilities include, tea, coffee and breakfast. We are a bnb so we are here most of the time, downstairs is private.

We have a beautiful home designed by local architect Peter Stutchbury. We live with our TWO dogs and a parrot “Elvis”. The wildlife is amazing. We have Kookaburra's, beautiful major mitchells, king parrots and gallahs. It is quintessential Australia.

The view includes Scotland Island, Lovett Bay, Taylor Point, and Portugeese Beach. All accessible by hire boat at Church Point. Or get a ferry from Palm Beach to discover the rest of Pittwater, including The Basin, Mackerel Beach or onto the Central Coast and Patonga for a great day trip and a counter meal at the local pub.

There are many brilliant restaurants and cafes near by including Clareville Kiosk, Palm Beaches most popular Boathouse restaurant, Barrenjoey House (seafood plate is highly recommended ), Star Fish (try the Curry Tofu), Nourish (for healthy lunches and snacks) and Johah’s at Whale Beach (courtesy bus will get you there and back home). Contact me if you would like me to book you in for dinners.

The area has great shopping at Bow Wow, Bassike, Ginger & Smart and Lee Mathews. There is a good organic store and yoga and fitness classes locally in Avalon.

We have ADSL and WIFI. We are big on beautiful books your welcome to enjoy. There is a separate room with large TV/DVD and as film makers we have a huge collection of quality movies. We only allow general use of the kitchen ( tea, coffee snacks) not for dinner or major use. If you want to use the kitchen please discuss with me.

We have a beautiful space and enjoy sharing.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Thanks to Kelly and Jack for allowing us the privilege to stay at their ultra modern Avalon abode. Upon our arrival we immediately felt at ease due their welcoming nature and the fresh, stylish beachy vibe which resonates throughout the place.

    Located on the lower level of the house, the bedroom and adjoining decking provides a large private area with extremely spectacular sweeping views over Pittwater and Ku-Ring-Gai national park.

    All up Kelly was a very friendly host willing to share her local knowledge and also some tales of her worldly adventures. It is by far my most memorable and favourite airbnb experience to date!

    I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique northern beaches experience.

  • I have just come back to work after spending the most amazing weekend away in Avalon with hosts Kelly and Jack. The room/house had the most spectacular views across the beaches and national park, it immediately took us away from our hectic city lifestyles to a place of peace, tranquillity and comfort. There are so many places to explore in the area - great coffee, restaurants, cafes. We spent our days walking along the endless coastline, up to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse and lunch at the kiosk soaking up the views. A $10/30min paddle in a kayak brought an added level of fun and adventure to the day. It truly was a great weekend! Our friendly and welcoming hosts were fantastic - and we fell in love with the dogs Bentley and teddy, who were great companions on our morning walks. I cant speak highly enough of the experience we had in Avalon with Kelly and Jack - it really was like living in paradise

  • Patrick and I had the most fantastic stay at Kelly's and Jack's home. Their appartment is beautiful and the surrounding scenery is absolutely incredible. Kelly and Jack were unbelievably welcoming and it was a real pleasure to get to know them both (along with Bentley and Puppy who are super cute!). We could not have asked for a better whilst we explored the northern beaches. Thank you for having us! xx

  • What a wonderful retreat! Kelly & Jack made our stay so special; they are excellent hosts, very warm, welcoming and generous.

    Their home in Avalon is superb; open plan, wide sunset views, amazing wildlife and the best view from a bed there can be!

    We had a relaxing time with our new baby, I recommend staying with Kelly & Jack for a perfect break.

  • Kelly , Jack and family are nothing short of extra ordinary in terms of people. The guest room and home are like something from a movie. One could not even dream up such a wonderful setting. The view from the room is both breath taking and relaxing.

    The advice we got from Jack in terms of beaches to visit and restaurants to eat at, were spot on. My wife was totally in love with their two dogs and both of us were totally charmed by this amazing couple that are jack and Kelly.

    Landing the opportunity to stay at this home and share some time with these great people was one if the high lights of our vacation in Australia
