About this listing
You will love this retro Palm Beach cottage from the moment you walk through the door and straight out to the view! Pacific ocean, beautiful Barrenjoey Headland and peaceful Pittwater all in one sweeping glance! A short walk to both Palm Beach and Whale Beach. Weekends or longer stays.
Beautiful Palms - a quaint, yet comfortable cypress pine lined cottage on the ocean (NE) side of Palm Beach. Delight in the wonder of sun, surf and sand at your doorstep.
Enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner on the deck overlooking the water. Enjoy surf and ocean pool swimming, long walks along the beach to Barrenjoey headland and lighthouse, Pittwater sunsets.
Can accommodate up to 6 people in three bedrooms - one queen, one king and two singles. A comfortable and relaxing atmosphere - board games, books and broadsheets, the order of the day, rather than the big screen!
Cook your own meals in a cute 80s 'retro', wattle coloured, fully equipped, but basic, kitchen. Two bathrooms (one downstairs off the laundry - again a bit retro) and an outside shower to wash away the sand from the beach.
You won't spend all your time soaking up the view on the verandah as there are lots of beautiful places - beaches, coves, walks - for you to explore and delight in.
Cafes and restaurants, all in a healthy walking distance. Catch the ferry across to Patonga, renowned for it's fabulous fish & chips or Ettalong - have heard, good oysters! Go on a picnic via ferry across Pittwater to The Basin. Take a scenic ferry tour up the Hawkesbury river or, in season, go whale watching. Sailing enthusiasts will enjoy the panorama of sails on racing days from both the Pittwater and ocean sides of Palm Beach.
The cottage can be booked for your sole occupation or as my guests.
Weekend stays may request an early check in on Friday or a late checkout on Sunday - unless there are back to back bookings.
If you make a booking at the published rates, then you will have access to the cottage in its entirety, for your sole use.
During the Christmas/New Year period and into January and other school holiday periods are peak times. Preference will be given to full week bookings and longer stays.
!!! Not for the feint hearted - there are a large number of rough hewn sandstone stairs leading up to the cottage, as the cottage sits higher above the road. Be assured, every step worth it! Please be aware that the cottage may not be suitable for those with a disability nor for toddlers or very young children, unless under careful supervision.
Interaction with guests
The cottage can be booked for your sole occupation or if you wish to make a booking, as my guest, a discount will be applied.
If you are a single traveller, couple or small family or group - and just want somewhere beautiful and peaceful to land and don't mind sharing, then this is also the spot for you!

Easy going and fun loving. Blessed to live in a beautiful part of a great country! Open space and the peace and calm that only the natural environment can provide, is very important to me. As is the company of friends and family, good books, good food and good times! I am interested in people - their backgrounds, experiences and culture. Love to hear your stories. I swim and walk for recreation, whilst yoga is my preferred 'sport'! Time to travel again, after having raised a family.
