Our self contained cabin is an easy walk to Avalon Beach and all that this beautiful beachside village offers and is an easy drive to world famous Palm Beach and stunning Pittwater. Enjoy a comfortable and quiet stay - perfect for 1 or 2 adults.

The Space

A quaint and self contained cabin, located in the rear garden of our family home in Avalon Beach. A quiet street less than 500 metres to the Village and Beach - an easy walk to everything!

The cabin has a queen size bed, a separate bathroom (shower, toilet and wash basin), kitchenette (fridge/freezer, oven/grill/ microwave, kettle, toaster and a single hot plate), two seater lounge, dining table and 2 chairs, TV/DVD and WIFI. All linen and kitchen utensils are provided and access to our washing machine and dryer is available if required and cleaning is included in the rate.

Avalon Beach is located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney - about an hour from the city (there is a regular bus service to and from Sydney CBD). Avalon village has an abundance of cafes and restaurants, gift and homeware stores, a cinema, bookstore, library and supermarket. Our cabin is ideally suited for someone visiting relatives in the area, guests attending a local function or those just looking for a getaway to explore this beautiful corner of the world.

Check in is generally from 2pm and checkout by 11am with flexibility depending on outgoing and incoming guests.

A minimum of two nights is preferred, however if required single night bookings may be available with a $30-$70 "single night surcharge" applied at the booking acceptance stage (40% of second night fee).

We dont have many house rules, just that you don't smoke in the cabin or the garden, that you leave your pets at home and that noise is kept to a minimium.

Interaction with Guests

We are generally at home to greet our guests on arrival, or will at least meet you at some point over your stay. We like to make your stay as peaceful and private as possible but are more than happy to have a chat too.

The Neighborhood

Avalon and the surrounding suburbs of Newport, Bilgola, Whale Beach and Palm Beach all have stunning beaches, cafes aplenty and beautiful places to sit and watch or walk and wonder at the beauty of it all. Water surrounds this lovely peninsular with easy access to surf beaches and the calm waters of Pittwater.

Getting around

Many of our guests have arrived in Avalon on the bus and then walked to our place, it is an easy walk. There is plenty of street parking outside our home.

Other Things to Note

There is plenty of street parking and our side of the street is unrestricted. The opposite side (email hidden) with No Parking from 8-9.30am and 2.30-4pm, Monday to Friday during school term. Please make sure you observe the parking restrictions as a penalty of $100 plus applies if you are parked in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  • We really enjoyed our relaxing 2 night stay at Pip and Matt's cabin in Avalon. Close to Avalon village and the beach and a short drive to some other beautiful parts of the northern beaches. Great to explore a part of Sydney that we are not that familiar with. A very comfortable cabin - thank you!

  • My friend and I immensely enjoyed our stay at Pip and Matt's cabin! The location is perfect with such a short walk to the shops/cafes/beach and the cabin itself was extremely comfortable. We felt really welcomed by our hosts and loved the folder of information about what to do in Avalon and the areas nearby, as well as the restaurant advice (the block of chocolate on arrival was pretty great too!) We just wish we had been able to stay longer and will certainly be back again soon. I would definitely recommend Pip and Matt's cabin to anyone!

  • We stayed at Pip and Matt's guest house for three nights. The accommodations were clean and just as presented in the listing. We checked in quite late on our first day and they were kind to accommodate us. Unfortunately, due to our own oversight, we parked on the wrong side of the street the first night and woke up to a 100$ ticket, but Pip was extraordinarily kind and insisted that she compensate us for the ticket even though it was entirely our own fault. We had a fantastic time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pip and Matt's cabin for anyone visiting Avalon. A lovely couple, family and home.

    Response from Philippa And Matt:

    Thanks for your positive review Vivek. Just wanted to clarify the parking issue for future guests. Our side of the street is unrestricted parking - and there is plenty of space. The opposite side of the street is a 2 minute drop off/pickup zone from 8-9.30am and 2.30-4pm during school terms. At any other time it is also unrestricted. A penalty applies if you park in that zone at the wrong time. Hope that is clear. Pip

  • Pip and Matt have been very kind hosts and their cabin is really beautiful. We spend two nights in Avalon and had a great time hiking, relaxing and having nice food!
    After applying for the cabin, we received the confirmation promptly. On the day of arrival, we were welcomed warmly by Pip and their lovely kids. The cabin was perfectly tidy and well equipped. A nice, quiet place to relax. The cabin is separated from the main house, so that it is up to the guest, to stay for themselves or have a chat with the very friendly hosts. To find out more about the area and what to do there, our hosts were happy to give tips and they have also created a helpful folder with a whole bunch of information.
    All in all, a very nice place in a very nice area with very nice hosts! We highly recommend it!

  • We had a very comfortable time in Avalon. We struck a wet weekend, but luckily the cabin was warm and friendly - perfect for reading and relaxing. Even though the space is compact, every little comfort is available - lovely bed with crisp linen and doona, modern bathroom, kitchen amenities, TV and a outdoor space to spread out onto. The hosts are friendly and very helpful with local knowledge. All our correspondences prior to the stay were easy and straightforward. We'd love to stay again...and can definitely recommend to anyone seeking a break from the city.

  • We have just had the most enjoyable stay with Pip & Matt at their Avalon Beach cabin. The location of their home is excellent, being walking distance to the lovely village of Avalon with wonderful cafés, restaurants, individual shops,, cinema and the beach. The greeting that we received on arrival was warm and friendly, with the cabin being a much appreciated haven after a long day of travel. The cabin ticked all the boxes for us, immaculately clean, quiet, with a comfortable bed, good pressured shower and a private verandah to enjoy a morning cuppa or an evening wine. Pip & Matt where excellent hosts, with great knowledge of their area, while at the same time allowing us complete privacy. We will definitely be back and look forward to our next trip to Avalon.
    Thank You

  • Pip, Matt and the kids are a lovely family and they have a beautiful home in a wonderful spot in Avalon. It's close to the shops and walking distance to Avalon Beach and Bilgola. The cabin is really well set-up and provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. Pip was very helpful with tips on what to see and do around Avalon and Palm Beach and made us feel very welcome. We even got some chocolate on arrival and fresh homemade muffins...what a treat! Thank you Pip, we really enjoyed our stay! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their cabin for a weekend away.

  • My father in law and his partner came over from the UK to stay in Sydney with us. They wanted to go away "somewhere warm and beachy" but somewhere not too far away that they could get to by public transport. Hiring a car was too expensive. On finding Pip and Matt's beach cabin in Avalon, we knew we'd found the place. They said it was immaculate, modern, clean and everything they needed was there, including milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and chocolate. The bus from central to Avalon cost them about $14 return. The beautiful beach, restaurants and cafes were on their doorstep. The hosts were so so friendly and they both raved that we must go and stay there. Thank you Matt and Pip!

  • Philippa is a great host and the property is beautful. There is plenty of privacy and we really enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend staying at Philippa and Matt's place-.

  • This was an excellent little weekend-away-spot for my partner and I. We had a great time and were very reluctant to leave! The cabin is exactly as described and appears in the pictures. Pip and Matt were wonderful hosts, very happy to stop and have a chat and give us some advice on the best cafes etc. The location is beautiful, with good cafes, restaraunts, and beaches all within 5-10 minute easy walking distance. The cabin has plenty of space for two people, and is nice and cosy at night, with no artificial light or noise from the outside world (very important to us as we live near the CBD!). Would definitely recommend, and we've already talked about going back for seconds!

We're a pretty busy family with 7 children, six of whom are at school, one at preschool. We love our beaches, swim regularly and enjoy our garden, growing vegies and looking after a couple of chooks! We're looking forward to meeting you and sharing this beautiful corner of the world with you.
