Aub and Ethels - Great Mackerel Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Get away to the peace and quiet of Mackerel Beach.....who wold believe that you are still in Sydney when you are strolling around the beach and GRASS roads. The only transport here is by foot or by bike. There are no cars here which makes it perfect for children of all ages

Wake up with the wallabies roaming around the garden or watch the goannas scale the trees. Where in Sydney can you find a place like this.

The house has just been stylishly renovated with a large outdoor rear verandah and deck. There are 3 bedrooms and can sleep up to 7 people. Great for families or 3 couples wanting some private time away. The 2 front bedrooms both have queen beds and the 3rd room has a Tri bunk set. There are also 2 day lounges in the TV area that can sleep 2 singles - good for children if you got stuck.

The Kitchen area flows out to the back verandah and this is the real central hub of the house. Watch everyone outside on the lawns or cook up a feast on the BBQ.

The house is pet friendly so for those wanting to take the dogs, they are welcome here as long as they are on a leash when walking to and from the beach. There are times and areas when the dogs are allowed to have a good run on the beach.

The house is on more than 1200m of perfect flat land making it the ideal location for children to run and play. It would have to be the safest holiday destination in Sydney as the only way to get to the house is by boat and there are no cars here at all!

Tranquillity - with a dash of local wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a week.

Our group consisted of two young children (2 & 4yrs), parents and grandparents and this property was perfect for our week’s getaway. Fantastic layout, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Huge garden that the kids loved, and then into the wheel barrow (easy to transport little ones and fun too!) and a short walk to the beach for swimming, walks, fishing and exploring.

It is a home away from home, well organised, and well equipped. Having a main bathroom and separate toilet was a plus with 6 people and the outdoor shower was brilliant after numerous beach trips. We had great weather which definitely helped for a fun week, but I can imagine it being a fun get away with wood burner in the winter months too.

Lots of wildlife (which the overseas grandparents loved!), birds, lizards, goannas, wallabies, pelicans, snakes (non-venomous – phew) and a lovely walking track up into the national park for adults to explore.

We had a boat for the week which was amazing, but not an absolute necessity; the ferry is regular and easy to use. It’s a relaxing break which is easily accessible (from Palm Beach) but feels very different from Sydney home life.
