Ocean View Deckhouse - Hargraves Beach

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom with ocean views from large deck. 25 metres to beach.

Overlooking Hargraves Beach, the Deckhouse offers a spacious, relaxed beach house with four bedrooms to comfortably sleep 8. Beach access is directly opposite the house; less than a 25 metre walk.

The house is located at Hargraves Beach, Noraville on the NSW Central Coast, just over an hours drive north of Sydney via the M1 Pacific Motorway. Hargraves Beach is on the coast between Norah Head and Budgewoi.

The house features a 12m wide, partially covered timber deck facing the ocean with outdoor setting for 8, two sun lounges and gas-fired barbecue.

A swing, slide and cubby-house in the gated front garden suit younger children.




Disturbance to our neighbours, including excessive noise, is prohibited and will result in termination of rental and loss of bond.


The main living floor is on the first floor leading out to the deck. The living area has two sofas, armchair, a 48" LCD TV and DVD player. The dining area has a large table and eight chairs. A wood burning stove and reverse cycle air-conditioning ensure comfort at all times of year.


Kitchen facilities include cooktop, oven, grill, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and ample crockery and utensils.


From the large, elevated, east facing deck there is an extensive view towards the ocean. The deck is partly covered and, because it's protected from the southerly winds, can be enjoyed all year round. The open portion of the deck is ideal for sun baking. A small rear deck accessed from the kitchen offers a second intimate outdoor area.

4 BEDROOMS & 2 BATHROOMS (no linen provided)

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with queen size beds (one overlooking the ocean), one bedroom with two bunk beds and a bathroom with bath and shower.

The ground floor has one bedroom with a queen size bed, together with a bathroom (with shower only) and fully equipped laundry.

All bedrooms have large built-in cupboards.

Very good in location

  • 4 of 5

Overall impression was good. The location is very good, just next to the beach and the views of the deck is excellent, the bathrooms looks very new and clean. Unfortunately we were in the cold days, there was no air conditioner in the bedrooms. The firewood helped us a lot as the only air-con in the dinning room was out of service.

This house is perfect for a family getaway. Amazing views, lovely house and super clean! The kids absolutely loved the play equipment and the games room was perfect for a bit of downtime. Would absolutely recommend!

We stayed at the property with 3 kids and enjoyed every minute. The house is well equipped with everything you need & the little touches like hand soap, and tea/coffee in the pantry were a nice bonus. Our children loved playing with the Lego provided and the cubby in the front garden.

Overall great house & great views. Thankyou Jane for everything!

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend at the ocean view deckhouse. The ocean views are amazing and peaceful. It's very well equipped with everything you need. Its a beautiful beach to go for walks. Its just a shame we couldn't stay longer! :) Thanks Jane for always being prompt in answering our queries.

Beautiful, relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Ocean view deckhouse. We watched whales breach the water at least once everyday from our balcony. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the play area outside, the toys provided and the beach directly accross the road. The neighbours were quiet and friendly. The shed/games room was great. We would definately return. What an amazing property.
