Overview

About the property

** Responses and booking confirmations given typically within two hours **

The Three Bees (Beach, Bush and Bay) is a stylish, self catering apartment created from the ground level of a formerly large house. With lovely water views and refreshing sea breezes flowing through, guests love being able to forget about the car and walk to the beach, the bay, restaurants and cafes.

Fresh, airy, stylish, bright and beach modern would be the best way to describe this place.

You have your own parking spot 10 m from your front door. Seniors appreciate not having staircases to lug bags up flights of stairs, typical in coastal areas.

Bi-fold doors completely open up to bring the bay inside the large open lounge/dining/kitchen area.

Furniture and beds are respected brands, purchased for comfort and often commented upon highly in reviews.

For the colder nights there is an electric fire, electric blankets for the bed and plenty of throws and blankets. Lovely and cosy to curl up and read a book.

The main room has a comfortable Queen bed. An additional bedroom with a King single is available at an extra $40, however please note that this to cater for those who wish separate rooms, not extra people--the maximum of two still applies. Please indicate if the extra bedroom is required so it can be prepared.

The kitchenette was purposely designed to be adequate for short stays, so the cost of a full kitchen didn't have to factored into the nightly rates. You'll find a single shelf oven, single element induction cooktop, electric frypan, microwave, medium sized fridge, along with a kettle, toaster, Lavazza coffee machine and milk frother.

There's also a gas BBQ, outdoor dining setting and covered lounge chairs in landscaped gardens for your sole use. Complimentary tea, fresh milk, biscuits and coffee are supplied.

Authors and business people love the office with its bi-fold windows opening right up to bring in the fresh breezes and glorious view of the bay, often returning for the tranquility to get re-inspired.

Many guests stay to attend weddings at Bells Resort or Killcare Surf Club, often leaving their car at the resort or club and enjoying the scenic walk to get it the next day.

THE LOCATION

Hardy's Bay is a small seaside village. A lot of artists, actors and authors live in this unique area surrounded by nine pristine beaches and Bouddi National Park. It is well known for its cafes and was voted by The Advocate newspaper as 'Best Area on the Central Coast'.

It is a safe and friendly area that you can walk around at night time. Half of the homes are permanent and the rest are holiday homes..

If you want a restful holiday and want go home looking better than when you arrived, this is the area, even if we haven't availability for your dates.

An open wall of glass doors brings the outside in and there are plenty of friendly Australian birds - kookaburras, butcher birds, lorikeets, bush turkeys and cockatoos.

Linen, bedding and bath towels are provided free, no linen charge, no need to bring your own sheets.. Beach towels are not provided.

YOUR PRIVACY

You have complete privacy - with your own entrance, verandah and shutters or blinds on all windows. You have sole use of the outdoors BBQ area and your car spot.

There is an apartment below yours, and one above. The one below is not yet fit for occupation, the one above owners Simon and/or Lyn stay at part time depending on upcoming bookings etc.

Nonetheless, your peace and privacy is our utmost priority and unlike normal apartments, we can ensure you won't have parties, loud televisions or footsteps above keeping you awake. Single guests have also appreciated the security of knowing someone else is around, and many feel comfortable knowing any issues can be fixed on the spot.

The houses either side are holiday homes so often unoccupied too.

MAXIMUM GUESTS

This accommodation is for 1 or 2 guests only. Parties and get-togethers are not permitted out of respect for neighbours and council regulations.

MAXIMUM STAY

We have a nominal maximum stay of 5 nights so there is an opportunity to maintain the grounds without disturbing guests, but depending on surrounding bookings we try to accommodate longer stays. Please enquire.

SMOKING

Smoking is not permitted inside. The back verandah is fine and very convenient

CHILDREN, BABIES

Children must be at least 14. We can not accommodate babies.

CLEANING FEE, BOND, BOOKING FEE, LINEN FEES

None!

We like to keep pricing simple so your final cost isn't nothing like what the nightly rate suggested.

By not allowing younger children, pets, parties or more than 2 people, we have found very little damage and could remove the complexities of bonds.

ANY OTHER FEES?

Only if you require both bedrooms is there a once off $40 surcharge regardless of how long you stay.

BOOKINGS

Bookings only taken for stays within 9 months of the current date so we can ensure the accommodation will be available and not have to inform you we can no longer accommodate you.

But please book early to save disappointment - it is rare that we have a weekend available within the coming month and often get simultaneous requests for the same dates.

Clean and tidy with a lovely outlook

Thoroughly enjoyable stay in Hardy Bay. Everything you need for a short stay and close to some wonderful walks. The local cafes and restaurants provided great food and wine.

Relaxing Time Away

  • 5 of 5

An amazing little place for a quiet get away. Simon was a pleasure to meet and was helpful with any questions/enquiries from the very beginning and throughout my stay. I adored the view from my balcony, which overlooked the bay and everything was in walking distance which was convenient :)

Convenient, friendly, roomy

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable and friendly location. A fantastic view from the balcony in a perfect location for a get away. The study was perfect with internet provided. Plenty of room in the house with 2 bedrooms.

We saw very little of Simon who was fantastic and even allowed us a later check out.

this property comes highly recommended

View of Hardys Bay & close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Simon was helpful when we got there to explain where things were on arrival. The bed was comfortable which was a big concern ,as I've been to many places that weren't comfortable. It was lovely sitting out on the back verandah overlooking Hardys Bay in the morning. A highlight of beautiful places to eat is Hardy's(old cottage/cafe on the bay), Hardys Harry Restauarant(Community Club) it was so good we went there twice & the coffee is lovely with a stunning view at Killcare Beach(kiosk/cafe on Killcare Beach). Thanks again.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful weekend here. Lived up to our expectations in terms of location, space and having everything we needed. Wished we could have stayed longer and had more tea on the balcony. If we get the chance for another break (without the kids) we would definitely return.
