Overview

Photos and Description of this Great Mackerel Beach holiday cottage

This is a beautiful rustic sandstone cottage with 2 bedrooms, lounge/dining, small effective electric kitchen with a large sun deck and gazebo on one level with 3rd bedroom underneath (external access).

This experience is best described as sophisticated camping where the streets are made of grass, the wildlife is outside the door and the beach is about a 7 minutes walk. The beach is close to the heads of Broken Bay with wavelets to small waves similar to the Mediterranean.

The environment is semi-tropical. For the energetic there are bushwalks to ancient aboriginal carvings, other beaches or other western foreshore communities.

Local wildlife that has recently been seen includes wallabies, possums, brush turkeys, bandicoots, lyre birds, water dragons and other wildlife.

Mackerel Beach is a small peaceful community opposite Palm Beach with no shops. Access is by ferry on the hour during the day or water taxi at other times.

SOPHISTICATED CAMPING

The peace and positive atmosphere of Mackerel is reminiscent of the past. There is no through traffic.

The cottage is made of sandstone hewn by hand from the land it stands on.

Please bring all the supplies you need. It is preferred that you bring your own sheets and towels. Unfortunately due to Stayz payment system bed linen is no longer able to be arranged. Rainwater is harvested for drinking, and you may want to bring your own supply. Bore water is used for grey water.

Arrival is usually after 3.30pm and departure is usually before 12.00 noon. Payments are mandated to be through Stayz. Mobile phone access in the house depends on your phone and provider. There is a phone available in the house to receive incoming calls. A public phone is located at the beach. Free wi-fi is available in the house.

Boats are available for hire at Palm Beach.

Other information about the Pittwater can be found on the "Stayz Pittwater Accommodation Page" under "Pittwater Local Knowledge"

UNIQUE

On any balmy evening you can take a lazy stroll down to the beach and enjoy the view of Pittwater in the fading light with some refreshments. It is then a gentle stroll back to the house for dinner from the BBQ or you can organise takeaway through the water taxi service.

The house is in the valley which protects you from most winds and creates its own environment.

With the palm trees and other vegetation you could easily believe you were in the tropics.

In winter you can relax in front of the fireplace which is also a stove. Experience the extra flavours of slow cooking of stews, curries or casseroles. You are protected from the outside elements by the thick sandstone walls. The whole ambience can make for great memories.

There is also a range of excellent restaurants available on the eastern foreshore with a water taxi service at night (Pink Taxi).

Unfortunately due to the payment arrangements enforced by Stayz I am currently unable to accept foreign currency nor am I able to offer the previous rebates for Australian service veterans.

Mackerel Beach is ideally located in the off chance that you may have an urgent need to get to the city which is only about 1.5 hours away. There are also regular bus services every 20 or 30 minutes between the city and the ferry wharf. A more adventurous seaplane flight from Rose Bay to Mackerel Beach and return is also available.

While Mackerel is a great place for children this property is not really suitable for children under 7 years of age and definitely not suitable for children or infants under 6 years of age.

Cats are banned by Pittwater Council and must not be taken to Mackerel. Limitations are placed on dogs in public spaces. Domestic animalss are not allowed on this property as they stop wildlife such as wallabies visiting and may cause allergic reactions in following tenants.

In addition to the Stayz Terms and Conditions you also agree to the Owner's rental agreement by making a payment to Stayz.
