About The Owner

Our family values your privacy and our own. We are widely travelled and have extensive business experience. We are happy for our holiday home to speak for itself. Its very high standard of presentation results from attention to detail, including the screening of tenants and a thorough spring cleaning between tenancies. This is the private retreat our family members enjoy as a hideaway when not hosting visitors. We have been based in Australia for many generations and are happy to answer any queries regarding travel arrangements, facilities and visitor suggestions, within the Palm Beach - Pittwater area, or the greater Sydney Region.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why The Owner chose Palm Beach

Location: We love the privacy, as this apartment is not overlooked from any direction. We are awed by the spectacular sunsets and the sound of waves lapping on the beach opposite. We enjoy the nearby eateries and boutiques - summer all year round.

The Interior: We love the light, spacious feel, the ambient low key decor and the ultra comfortable beds and sofas.

The Exterior: We enjoy the outdoor lounge area, the private terrace off the master bedroom, and the outdoor dining with BBQ on the all weather verandah.

Visitors comment on the very special 'feel' of this apartment, which is immediately restful when you walk in the door. They love the range and quality of the equipment, nothing has been overloked for your comfort

What makes this apartment unique

Huge weather-protected covered verandah (30m wide).

Private outdoor areas, and on site access to heated pool & spa.

Walk across the quiet street to Snapperman Beach.

Barbara is a great person and takes such good care of this place that it's really perfect! Everything is thought through to the minimum detail, the place is fully equipped, amazing!! Our family has stayed in many rental apartments before, but this is by far the best ever! Worth every penny. And the kids really loved the beach and the heated pool! Terrific, would highly recommend it! Thanks Barbara for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you to our guests from Brazil for their kind thoughts. We do take care to ensure that our holiday apartment is truly a home away from home, presented to an international standard and fully equipped, as we would wish to enjoy it ourselves from time to time. We meet and greet guests on site in person to ensure that everything meets expectation and for orientation to the area, and upon departure to receive feedback should maintenance be needed. This is a place for happy families to experience peace and calm, listen to the waves, watch beautiful sunsets and breathe freely in the fresh sea air. As we say in Australia: 'no worries'.

Fabulous apartment in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
Barbara the owner provides the most incredible level of customer service & professionalism. The apartment is beautifully presented, immaculately clean, well appointed and everything we could possibly wish for. I run a travel business in England and have been fortunate to travel quite extensively and found Iluka Apartments to be one of the best and most comfortable accommodations that we have ever enjoyed. We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas/New Year 2013 with our 2 sons aged 24 & 20 and the accommodation was perfect. We had the large queen size double room with en-suite bathroom and the boys the twin bedded room with their own separate bathroom. The apartment is generous in size with the benefit of an outside terrace that we used on many evenings to dine. Coming from England, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to eat outside at 8:00 in the evening in December! There is a wonderful Deli just across the road, selling speciality gourmet foods, fresh daily bread, pastries, croissants and an extensive wine cellar. There are several restaurants all within walking distance, Barranjoey House, Greedy Goat, good fish & chip shop but there is nothing better than buying fresh food from the Deli and enjoying a meal in, with a great bottle of wine on Barbara's terrace. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, spending most days on the beach which is a very short 5 minute walk, playing golf at the short 9 hole course on Palm Beach and something more testing on the 18 hole courses at Mona Vale and Bayview (all reasonably priced). Good choice of supermarkets in Pittwater and Mona Vale and only 45 minutes drive north of Manly and about 1 hour from central Sydney. All in all a fantastic find and highly recommended.
