About Claudie Moffatt

I'm originally from Canada but settled here in Australia in 1976 and can't think of a better place to live than Avalon Beach. It has a great laid back lifestyle with being able to leave the car at home and walk to the beach or village. The city of Sydney is only an hour away where I often enjoy concerts, the Opera House, the Art Gallery and so much more that the city has to offer.

I enjoy meeting new people and sharing my knowledge of the area.

Claudie Moffatt purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Claudie Moffatt chose Avalon Beach

I bought the property because of the location being close to the beach and village with its relaxed atmosphere and friendly locals.

Avalon Seashells 2 B/R apart. with pool near beach
average rating of 4.94 based on 50 reviews

Spotless and walking distance to everything!

  • 5 of 5

"Seashells " was everything my husband and I needed for a short break away.It is spotlessly clean, down to snowy white sheets and towels. Everything you need is there, and a bottle of wine was a lovely touch by Claudie.The ocean view from the balcony was beautiful to enjoy after a day at the beach. Walking distance to the beach and shops was fabulous. "Alma" , "Rukus" and the French Bakery were all standouts to eat.We will definitely come back - sooner rather than later! Thanks again Claudie..... Tess

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

As a former Avalon resident, I enjoyed a nostalgic weekend stay at Seashells and would highly recommend this apartment. Very good value for a two-bedroom apartment - clean, roomy and comfortable. Complimentary wine and cheese provided by our perfect host, Claudie, was a welcoming touch. Claudie's suggestions for local sightseeing and eating spots were most helpful. My good friend Robyn and I will be back!

Thansk for gorgeous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claudie's gorgeous apartment. Super central and splendidly clear, and cosy with lovely view of the ocean form afar and trees surrounding the little balcony outside. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for cosiness, cleanliness, and central location! Claudie was a delight to deal with at all times and communicated beautifully and efficiently and made us feel very much at home. Highly recoemded! .
