About Janelle Gursel

We hope to retire to this beautiful beach house one day. It is close enough to enjoy the vibrant centre of Sydney but far enough away(40 mins) to be a relaxed beachside location.

Janelle Gursel purchased this house in 2009

Why Janelle Gursel chose New South Wales

Sydney's northern beaches is very desirable location for a relaxed holiday.This house overlooks the best beach in Sydney, Bilgola Beach. This beach is a hidden gem and never crowded. Bilgola Beach is very picturesque and has a real holiday vibe. It has beautiful Norfolk Pines, a great cafe for breakfast and lunch and an Olympic size ocean pool. All less than 5min walk from our back door.

What makes this house unique

The spectacular view over Bilgola beach and beyond makes it very special. You can watch whales migrating, and surfers catch the perfect wave, from all 3 levels of the house. The sunrises and moonlit nights over the water are a very special sight! The house itself is flooded with a warm northerly sun in the winter and treated with a cool northeasterly breeze in the summer. The beach is less than 5 min walk down the hill.

The pool is wonderful to cool off in, after the walk back from the beach. Of course don't forget the Jacuzzi!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved your beach house. The views are amazing and the house is beautiful in every way. Our boys learnt how to surf and loved every moment of staying here. It is a very relaxing place to stay especially as great restaurants are 5mins away and I didn't have to cook! We did have some lovely breakfasts on the balcony checking out the surf. Thankyou for a fantastic time in beautiful Sydney.

Spectacular Sydney Beach House, Newport.
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Our stay was remarkable. There was nothing left to chance by the owners. Everything is there for you to use and all of it is the best quality. The house was spotless when we turned up, even the beds made to perfection.

Even having condiments there was something less to worry about. Fresh towels for bath and beach, all the appliances you could need, surf equipment, pool equipment and so much more. So, so much.

Waking up and having a cuppa on the back porch, looking at the views and whales was something I miss at home!

Newport Arms is a great place to eat and a drive up to Palm Beach is a must.

Would recommend this place to EVERYONE.

Thanks for making our week absolutely fantastic.

My husband and I have just returned from a one month stay at this beautiful Newport/Bilgola Beach home. We loved every day and evening and we hated to leave. Janelle, the owner, was so warm and welcoming and absolutely everything about this home and it's fabulous location was perfect. When kids visited they loved all the toys, Wii games, backyard swings and of course the pool and the beach. When the adults visited the open plan living with deck and BBQ made for some memorable good times.

When we return to Sydney, this home will be our first request for a rental.

We just returned from our two week vacation in Sydney and renting Vila Deniz was the best possible choice. The location was stunning and the amenities perfect. Bilgola and Newport beaches are within walking distance as well as great restaurants in Newport.

Janelle the owner did everyhting possible to make our stay enjoyable, she picked us up from the airport, she responded promptly when we had a little problem with the lights in the house and she even had chilled champaigne and breakfast waiting for us in the fridge.

The house is perfect for traveling with kids; our two children loved playing on the huge terrace and watching the ocean from their bunk beds. We recommend renting a car since there are a lot of places to visit in the area. The drive to Sydney takes approx. 45 minutes and even though it was our first time driving on the left side we got used to it right away - the australian drivers are very polite!

There is also the nice town of Avalon with great shops and restaurants (5 min drive), the beautiful Northern Beaches spread along the coast and the Blue Mountains (2 hour drive) that are all worth exploring.

If you are thinking about Sydney and surroundings we highly recommend Vila Deniz.
