Our stay at the cabin was lovely from start to finish. The cabin was incredibly well kept and well set up. The selection of DVDs, books and a game was a nice bonus. The backyard offered plenty of space between the house and cabin for privacy and the proximity to Avalon shops and beach was perfect.
I had a great time in the cozy little cabin of Philippa and Matt in the garden of their home. Cabin is well equipped, information of everyting that might be of interest is provided. Location in Avalon is perfect, nice area, close to shops, restaurants and to the beach. Philippa is a lovely host, relaxed and caring. I would go there again anytime.
We had a lovely time in a well set up cabin and beautiful beachside town in a semi tropical looking green Valley. Everything was well organized and simple.
It was lovely to return and stay in Pip and Matts cabin. The cabin is exactly as described and very cosy. Since I last stayed air con has been added, making it even more inviting. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Only a short walk to Avalon village. The perfect location to explore the Northern Beaches.
My husband, little baby and I stayed in Pip & Matt's self-contained cabin in Avalon and had a really wonderful stay. The location is perfect, on a beautiful tree lined quiet street, walking distance from the beach and shops/cafés. The cabin has everything you need - air conditioning, ceiling fans, a great little kitchenette and bathroom and lovely bed. Pip provided lots of nice little extras like milk and chocolate in the fridge and children's books and soft toys as she knew we had a little one. Pip & Matt were fantastic hosts, providing the perfect balance of privacy and friendly interaction, and were very helpful with any question or request that we had. We hope to come and stay at Pip & Matt's cabin again!
We're a pretty busy family with 7 children, six of whom are at school, one at University. 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.
