Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

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 (previously known as the F3 Freeway). 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.


* NO PARTIES OR SIMILAR FUNCTIONS. Disturbance to our neighbours, including excessive noise, is prohibited and may 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.


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.


- Bedroom 1 (first floor): one queen-size bed

- Bedroom 2 (first floor): one queen-size bed

- Bedroom 3 (first floor): two single beds (bunk beds)

- Bedroom 4 (ground floor): one queen-size bed

We do not have a cot at the house, however, there is a local company that you can hire one from. They will deliver and collect the cot from the house. If you'd like to hire a cot, please contact me for their details.


Guests must bring their own sheets, pillowcases, towels and tea towels. Duvets, blankets and pillows are provided. Alternatively, linen and towel hire can be arranged - please contact me for details.

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!

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.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home is the most beautiful and well set-up home we have stayed in for a holiday. Jane set everything up so thoughtfully, it was so relaxing not to have to worry about a thing. As soon as we arrived we were blown away by the view and the beautiful living areas upstairs. The outdoor area for the kids was just great- the kids were sad when we had to leave. Will definitely stay again!!

Fantastic beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at the Ocean View Deckhouse. The house is beautifully located close to beaches with great views from the deck. It is very well furnished and the kitchen has a good range of crockery / cutlery etc. Even though rainy for a few days, the log fire and games room kept us cosy and our children occupied.

Jane was extremely responsive and went above and beyond to provide information and answer any questions. Even in July, we enjoyed a lovely break. Great value for money!
