Whale Beach Bed and Breakfast (North Avalon)

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Whale Beach B&B is a gorgeous 'Boutique B&B' set in a tropical, leafy, quiet street of Avalon/Whale Beach. It's just 3 minutes walk to a most beautiful view over stunning northern beaches and headlands. You can choose between visiting Avalon, Whale or Palm Beach, all 20 min walk or 3 min car ride away.

We are reasonable for the area and do get full at weekends so book early! Rates do vary according to seasons and often last minute specials apply so enquire.

Each room has it's own bathroom, Queen bed, TV and fridge and is stylishly decorated with a 'beachy' theme. Excellent value for location and standard of accommodation.

There is a lovely Lounge/Dining/kitchen leading on to a covered deck with bbq. There is air con in the Lounge/Dining, fans in rooms and cozy gas log fire in Winter and heaters in all rooms.

Very popular with wedding guests as we are close to popular wedding venues such as Moby Dicks, Jonahs, The Boathouse etc. A 2 night minimum booking usually applies at weekends. A third or 4th night can be added on at a lower rate. You can book out the whole place as a 'Holiday Home' and enjoy having bedrooms with private facilities. Cheaper rates for longer stays. Rates with or without continental breakfast. (Continental breakfast an optional extra.) You can book out individual rooms if we have availability too. Sometimes we only may only have the garden room available for 2 and the front may be booked so bear that in mind if enquiring for a group.

Comfortable, homely and 'seaside' feel to this boutique B&B. Friendly and helpful hosts (but we aren't intrusive at all!) At the rear of the property is our lovely 'Garden Retreat' for only $90-$170! Your pet may be able to stay with you too! (Discuss first) This room can be booked as a 4th bedroom if needed or on it's own.

Fantastic Location

The property is located in Careel Head Road (off the lower end of Whale Beach Road). It is only a 2 minute walk to buses to the City and to a nice selection of restaurants. You can choose from a great Thai, Indian or Italian restaurant and can easily walk home!

Beautiful beaches like Avalon, Whale and Palm Beach are all close by. There're also some great bushwalks or runs such as Bangalley Head or up to Barrenjoey lighthouse.

If your feeling energetic grab a game of tennis on one of five courts at the Careel Bay tennis club - a 5 minute walk away. Swim or surf at the beach or swim in one of the ocean rock pools.

If you just want to indulge yourself head for one of the fabulous Avalon/Palm Beach restaurants, get a facial or a massage at one of the excellent beauty salons or wander around the wonderful gift, clothing and homeware shops.

Things to do in this gorgeous Pittwater area.

Pittwater is the Northern peninsula of Sydney's Northern Beaches, about 45 minutes from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's a narrow strip of land with peaceful bays on one side (Clareville, Taylor's Point) and surf beaches on the other; Avalon, Bilgola, Whale and Palm beaches - all stunning golden sand beaches with sea pools.

A short ferry ride will take you over to The Basin which is a picturesque swimming lagoon in National Park bushland where you'll always see wallabies and native parrots as well as other wildlife. There are wonderful bush walks there too. Hire a tinny to go there!

Avalon Village is about 20 minutes walk. There's a supermarket, cinema, excellent bookshop, gift shops, a French patisserie and lots of great cafes that serve good food. There is an RSL and some nice small bars like 'The Mill' and 'Toast'.

We have many restaurants in the area, including the internationally famous Jonahs and Barrenjoey House but also many good brasseries and take-aways. We have a gourmet pizza restaurant and a delicious noodle house a few minutes walk away.

Whale watching tours, scuba diving and sea plane joy flights are all close by. You can also hire a "tinnie" boat at Palm Beach and head out onto the beautiful beaches and bays of Pittwater.

You can make us the base for exploring all the best of the Northern beaches and Sydney. Bus (L90) to CBD end of road.

The Property

The B&B has a private entrance and lovely, elevated covered deck as well as a guest Lounge/Dining/Kitchen. We do a cheaper rate without breakfast as breakfast at Palm Beach or Avalon is one of the highlights of a visit to the area!

There is off street parking for 3 cars and plenty of on street parking.

As an extra to the 3 gorgeous ensuite B&B bedrooms, we have a lovely Cabin (we call the 'Garden Retreat') with ensuite, in back garden which can be pet friendly! This is an additional cost. If you take the 3 rooms the guests in Garden Retreat can't use Lounge/Dining/kitchen at front.

The kitchen has microwave, hotplates, electric fry pan etc and there is a large bbq on the deck which can roast meat. However there is no oven at present but you can use owners by arrangement. We have just installed a washing machine.

There is a contemporary beach theme throughout the B&B with surf and beach themed artworks, beautiful shell tables and more.

Each bedroom has it's own ensuite bathroom and Queen bed. There is a TV and bar fridge in each room. One room has a Queen and fold out double futon bed.

We do have a 2 night minimum stay at weekends and holidays but Sun -Thurs one night can usually be booked. We don't charge for linen or cleaning.

As we are a small business we do have a strict cancellation policy. If you don't cancel 14 nights before arrival 50% could be forfeited as we would have lost out on many bookings. For no shows the full rate may be taken.

Whales at Whale Beach

  • 4 of 5

A good base for the northern beaches, we were very excited to see a whale just off the beach on our last day. The house was spacious, nicely decorated, the kitchen cupboards and drawers needed a wipe.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We booked out all rooms and the garden retreat and this suited our extended family completely. Everything was neat and tidy and we were able to relax completely as soon as we arrived. Very close to the wedding venue. Both Elaine and Ted were great to deal with leading up to our visit and during our stay in their property. Thank you!
