The space

We are located close to Whale Beach, Avalon and Palm Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches .

Very cute cabin in tropical oasis!

Located in between stunning beaches of Whale, Avalon and Palm (Summer Bay). End of garden in tropical setting. 20 mins walk to beaches and Avalon village.

Lovely and bright with white walls and a dark timber polished floor. Large windows looking over garden. Queen bed, Tv, fridge and ensuite bathroom. Basic kitchen facilities (microwave, toaster and kettle) and tea and coffee making. Balcony with beautiful outlook.

Great selection of restaurants only 2 mins walk or Avalon village only 20 mins away as are the beaches. Bus to Sydney CBD 2 mins walk away. Pittwater also close.

Would suit couples and maybe 1 child too. Pets by arrangement. (we just need to discuss the pet first and there is a small fee.)

A very cute, cozy and comfortable Cabin in a fantastic position at a great price!

The Garden Retreat/Cabin is at the back of the property which has Whale Beach B&B at the front. (Owners live at back but have own entrance around the back.)

This garden studio is located in a quiet residential area within walking distance to Whale Beach and great local restaurants including Cranzgots Pizza and Mali Thai. It is also a very short drive to some of the area’s best 5 star restaurants. A five minute drive and you could be eating at The Boathouse, Barrenjoey House, Dunes Restaurant or Jonah's (all superb restaurants at Palm Beach).
Situated near world class beaches such as Palm Beach and Whale Beach and close to the beautiful calm waters of Pittwater, the local village of Avalon has a wonderful feel with a lively cafe culture, fantastic restaurants, an independent cinema and great shops.
Visit Summer Bay Life Saving Club at North Palm Beach made famous by Home & Away location shoots in the area.

The Garden Retreat was a perfect cosy getaway and the Whale Beach area was stunning. While we didn't get the best weather there were still many great walks to be had. Elaine was very helpful with anything we needed and even set up the Ethel the Combi as very comfortable extra bed for my brother. Thanks!

Response from Elaine:
We went out of our way for Lynne. Her 2 dogs attacked our dog on arrival but we were sympathetic to her as she was so upset. She complained about where she stayed before and seemed to much prefer staying at ours but then complained about things we tried to rectify. I don't think Lynne would be happy anywhere. She let her dogs on our nice, white linen quilt which we had to throw away.

Elaine, Ted, and Freddie the dog are super relaxed and great hosts. Made me and my dog buddy feel welcome, the cottage was awesome with a lovely shower and tv, and my weekend in Avalon was all good, a classic safe and peaceful dog friendly cottage!

Lovely little cottage situated out the back of the BnB. Everything was as described and the Elaine was fantastic, providing many recommendations and helpful hints. The fireplace in the lounge area was lovely to sit by in the rain!

We just loved our stay at Elaine's cosy garden retreat and would certainly go back. It was just the way we expected it to be, cute, private, good location, clean and Elaine is a very welcoming, warm and helpful host. We got lots of good tips what to do in the area. Thank's again, we had a wonderful time.

Since emigrating from England 25 years ago with my Dutch husband Ted, we feel incredibly lucky to be living on Sydney's Northern beaches. We feel it must be one of the best places to live in the world! Life is more of a holiday here. Even if you work you can always get up early, run along the beach or have a swim in the ocean, see the sunrise and start the day in great way!
I love sharing this part of the world so love being in the holiday letting business! I also do casual Primary School teaching and am lucky to have a good life/work balance. My husband Ted is a retired plumber and helps out with our 3 properties.
We have two children who are now 21 and 17 and a gorgeous Tibetan Spaniel called Freddie!
