The Treehouse at Mackerel

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage


Photos and Description of this Great Mackerel Beach holiday cottage

The Treehouse is back in business for the summer period, and into autumn. We've changed a few details. Our minimum booking is now four nights over the holiday season with early check-in and late check-out. In other words four nights, five days. Long weekends it's a three-night minimum ... other times just two nights.

Pittwater's hidden valley:

It's the perfect retreat - summer and winter - The Treehouse at Mackerel Beach. The two-bedroom, two-storey cottage is surrounded by tree tops, overlooking Mackerel Beach's enchanting valley - the area's best-kept secret. Enjoy a sunny, north-facing deck. Be refreshed and invigorated by the valley's crisp, clean air. Lorrikeets, kookaburras and king parrots are frequent visitors. So are wallabies and goannas. Shy lyre birds sing everyday and sometimes dance in the back garden, which extends into Kuring-gai National Park.

Best beach on Pittwater:

The beach is a five-minute stroll down grassy Monash Avenue. There are no cars, just a few golf buggies and lots of wheelbarrows for cartage. The swimming is safe and clean in the calm sea of Pittwater. The bushwalks are stunning. There are two kayaks stored at The Treehouse available for guests to use - and treat with respect.

Water access only:

Mackerel Beach is directly across Pittwater from the Palm Beach Ferry Wharf on Barrenjoey Road. Access is by ferry, water taxi or "tinnie". Check ferry timetables at the Palm Beach Ferry website.

Sophisitcated Seclusion:

The Treehouse is not only delightful and comfortable, but it's also superbly equipped with a new kitchen and modern appliances which include a microwave, dishwasher, water-efficient washing machine and a drier. There's also basic Foxtel, a DVD player, sound system, and a landline. There is a gas barbecue on the deck. The main bedroom has a small en suite. Both rooms have queen beds. There's a single bed in an open-plan area upstairs.

Number of guests:

The maximum number of guests is strictly four. The Treehouse is best suited to one or two couples.

Linen supplied:

We provide all bed linen, blankets and bath towels. But it's BYO beach towels.

No parties:

Parties and functions are strictly not allowed.

No pets:

By law cats are prohibited and dogs are discouraged, with strict regulations. Out of respect for the wildlife here we do not allow pets of any sort at The Treehouse. We also ask you not to feed the wildlife because it interferes with their natural habitat and can encourage aggressive behaviour.


The house has tank water for all cooking and washing. It is precious. Please use it wisely. The toilets and the garden hoses operate on bore water.


There are no shops at all on Mackerel Beach so you bring your own food and drink. The Treehouse supplies some basics - the details supplied when a booking is made.
