About Greg

We love The Entrance, we're like many sydney siders who have holidayed here since we were kids. But The Entrance is not the same as it was, it still has the swimming and fishing, but it has changed so much to become a modern beachiside town with retaurants cafes pubs and clubs, live music and everything we could want in a holiday destination just over an hour form or home in Sydney.

We get a great kick out of our guests enjoying The Entrance as much as we do.

Greg purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Greg chose The Entrance

Parklea 11 is right across from the channel with 180 degree views from the bridge over to North Entrance around to the sea.

Walk across to the calm waters or 200 metres along the boardwalk to the patrolled surf beach.

Head west along the boardwalk to restaurants on the Marina, pub & cafes in the Plaza.

Kiddies play pool, pelican feeding, live music in the park, farmers markets every saturday morning, face painting, fair rides, ferris wheel etc etc make this a fantastic place for kids as well.

What makes this apartment unique

Our unit is very modern with new glass cooktop, over, dishwasher, fridge and all the cooking facilities you need.

Relax on your balcony to see where the fish are biting, watch the kayaks, windsurfers and kite surfers, watch ultralites fly by overhead. See the sun rise over the sea, or a big golden moon, or if you prefer, fireworks on the major occasions on the water right in front of you.

Check out the pelican feeding every afternoon in the park. Or just watch them from your balcony on the water or settling on the light pole in front of you.

Keep your camera handy, you will get some fabulous shots.
