Mackeral Beach is located on the northern beaches of Sydney and accessed by boat. It's a beautiful secluded beach community in stunning Ku-rin-gai Chase National Park, home to great bush walks inc Flint & Steel, Resolute Beach and America's Bay. Our house is less than 100 metres from the beach. Across the water are numerous surf beaches and restaurants. There's a cinema in Avalon which shows latest releases and excellent coffee stops.
There are three double bedrooms all with cathedral ceilings, wardrobes and closets. Each bedroom has double bed . There are two single mattresses which can be utilised in the living space on the first floor if required. The house is unique, with loads of character and personal touches, if you want a beige rental this is not for you! The deck leads to a front garden with jacaranda, frangipani and avocado tree. It's highly likely that you will see wallabies during your stay and in the summer goannas are often seen in the garden and sometimes even on the verandah. They're harmless and quite beautiful creatures. There's loads of birds, parrots and lorikeets and Kookaburras. On the top deck you will find a hammock and sun lounge and on the bottom deck, deck chairs, a dining table, shade umbrella and BBQ and plenty of deck space to relax , read a book or listen to music. The sound system plugs into your phone or there's a cupboard filled with CDs if you want to look for something new. Additionally we've left cards, puzzles and some games. We've left an eclectic selection of our personal books which includes poetry, novels , historical and photographic books, you'll find something that appeals.
The laundry has both washing machine and dryer but there's a line to dry clothes in the sun which we'd prefer in terms of electricity consumption. the house is also on rain water so the drinking water is beautiful but we ask that you are careful and don't take long showers or leave the tap running whilst you clean your teeth, be respectful of the water supply.
There's wifi if you need it but we'd encourage you to enjoy some time away, there's also a phone line which you can use for all your local calls.
All sheets are provided and bath towels but please bring your own beach towels. We also provide shampoo, liquid soap, tea (loads of varieties including herbal),coffee, oil, salt and pepper, some jams etc, the basics. There's no shop here, that's the beauty of the place, so be sure to bring all you need as once you're here you likely won't want to be going anywhere.
Whole house is available to guests.
