About the property

The Boathouse on Pittwater is a newly renovated self contained 2 bedroom ground floor holiday apartment with a casual beach cottage atmosphere. 6 month rental during winter available, enquire to owner.

Open plan living area and a large court yard - part covered, part uncovered with both formal seating and relaxing furniture. Located in a quiet tree lined street opposite a waterfront reserve with direct access to Pittwater waterway. With water views from your seat in the courtyard it is a relaxing stay.

The property is less than 2 minutes walk to The Flying Fox Park full of amenities for children and a great cafe, waterfront BBQ facilities (undercover) so a great place to take a picnic with the family or friends.

The boathouse is 15 minute walk into the centre of Mona Vale where you will find fabulous restaurants, cafes and shopping boutiques and 15 minute walk to Mona Vale main beach which has one of the best rock swimming pools in Sydney as well as great surf if you like to get the board out.

In addition close by is the newly opened "Newport" as well the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and Royal Motor Yacht Club with its restaurant/cafe and pool. The Royal Motor has a courtesy bus that will pick you up and drop you off at the front door (how good is that) you may visit as a guest if you do not live in the area.

We have recently set up communication with a Company that offers outings around NSW that will collect you from the door for the comfort of our guests plus a driver for those coming to/from airport.

The property is within walking distance to Bayview golf course or just a 5 minute drive to Mona Vale golf course which are both public courses and have great dining facilities.

The accommodation is surrounded by tropical gardens. Take a chair and sit in the reserve - the sublime water views from the reserve looking North up Pittwater and Scotland Island makes this the ideal place to relax and unwind regardless if you are locals, interstate or from overseas.

We offer longer term accommodation for individuals, couples or families looking to relocate or renovate/build for periods from one month or more based on terms of agreement.

2 bedrooms - 1 Queen bed and 2 singles plus Trundle for extra child (extra $20 for linen)

The modern kitchen has a double door fridge freezer and a oversize oven with gas cooktop, a dishwasher and washing machine also makes life easier when on holiday.

The open plan living area has TV and DVD player. The house has a modern bathroom with bath and separate shower, as well a separate guest toilet.

Clean spacious guest house, high quality amenities

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting Sydney and surrounding areas. We are young family with active kids, and the house was perfect as our home base.

We enjoyed both the outdoor and the indoor spaces very much. Kids loved being able to walk across the street for the little park and for a quick stroll by the water. The house was short 10min drive from Avalon beach and the town center area with great restaurants and cafes.

The place was in excellent condition - all the cooking utensils were available with a nice gas oven / stove and BBQ outside. The rooms are bright and airy and the beds were very comfortable.

Natalie and Brett were great host, very pleasant to work with. We enjoyed the stay tremendously and would recommend to anyone anytime.

A great spot.

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse was the perfect spot for a relaxed holiday with my two kids. The nearby Flying Fox park with its great playground, cafe, scooter track etc was great for my kids, and the location was perfect for exploring the northern beaches. The Boathouse is on a really quiet street and Natalie and Brett, who live upstairs, were perfect hosts who gave us total privacy. The Boathouse is sparkling clean, beautifully decorated and has everything you need - couldn't recommend it more. Thanks Natalie and Brett!

A cracking retreat on the Northern Beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the run up to Christmas. The Boathouse is situated on a quiet street just outside of Mona Vale making it a fantastic staging post for everything the Northern Beaches has to offer. Perfect for a family of 4. Very clean and comfortable with a lovely outdoor area. Wish we could have stayed longer!

A great weekend escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend away at the boathouse on Pittwater. Easy access to the water, flying fox playground and cafe and Mona Vale beach. Perfect location to make the most of what Mona Vale has to offer including kayaking along the river and bike riding. The apartment has a great layout with a large outdoor area where you can relax and enjoy. We definitely recommend it!

The Boathouse provided us with delightful retreat near Sydney's northern beaches. It was a peaceful haven, extremely well appointed and presented -I can't think of anything to improve it. It felt like a home rather than a soulless motel. Excellent value.
