Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Spacious architect-designed family-friendly home situated 300 metres to North Avoca beach and rock pools. Construction completed mid-2014. Enjoy stunning panoramic views from the living areas and one of the upstairs master bedrooms. Wake up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach. Cosy up around the wood fire burner during the cooler months (wood provided) or during summer head down to one of the best surf beaches on the coast (and without the crowds of many of the other beaches!) Enjoy a 2.3 metre long aquarium with beautiful colourful fish.

North Avoca is a quiet beach side community situated only a few minutes's drive from terrigal's restaurants and cafe's, and a lovely walk along the beach to the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre and restaurants.

We have a large organic vegetable garden that you may pick fresh produce from (we will provide a map with information on what is ready to be picked at each time).

Our light-filled open plan (and well-equipped) kitchen, living and dining room (with stereo sound system) flows on to an expansive entertaining deck and overlooks a large backyard with a trampoline (fully enclosed, springless) and space for a little game of soccer. The four bedrooms are upstairs whilst downstairs is the living area (which includes a dedicated play room stocked with many toys, board games and a Smart TV with Netflix, DVD player). Spacious bath in the main bathroom.

Bedroom one has a queen bed, ensuite, TV with DVD/CD player, with a private timber deck looking on to bush.

Bedroom two has a queen bed and a timber deck with panoramic views looking out to North Avoca beach.

Bedroom three has a double bed with single bunk above and pull-out double bed mattress.

Bedroom four has a double bed with single bunk above and pull-out double bed mattress.

Off street parking for four cars.

North Avoca is a quiet community. We have great relationships with our neighbours and do not our renting out our house to cause problems for them. No pets and no parties (hens, footy or bucks weekends). We only let to families. Maximum of 8 adults allowed. Please do not request a booking if there is not a child under the age of 12 years in your group. We decline all such bookings and it results in our listing being further down the results page on Stayz.


Compulsory cleaning levy of $200 per stay.

Linen (sheets and beach/bath towels) can be supplied for an additional fee. If you would like for it to be supplied, but beds not made (it would be then up to you to make them) the cost is $20 per bed per stay. If you would like the beds made then the cost is $35 per bed per stay. This to recoup the costs charged by our cleaners.

Summer School holiday availability

15% off for remaining summer school holiday nights! In January the house is available from Sunday 14th to Friday 19th, and Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th.

Desired tenants

We will only accept families (with at least one child under 12 years of age) as tenants. Please do not try to book if you do not fit this category. If you do not have a child as part of your group we will cancel the booking as soon as we find out. We will only give the keys to families (please do not arrive early without your child as we will only give the key when we see a child). We will evict immediately with no refund given if you arrive and do not meet these criteria. We have learnt from past experiences to not give the benefit of the doubt if people arrive without a child as our house has been damaged by bucks parties. This is our family home, and whilst we lock away personal belongings, photos etc when people stay, it is still the home in which we are raising our two young children. Our neighbours are our friends and we do not want our renting out the house to have a negative impact on them. No parties and no smoking allowed. If you want to stay up drinking until 3am this is not the house for you sorry. If you want a spacious and luxurious house by the beach with panoramic views, lots of toys and space for kids to run around, then this house would be great for you.

No trailer boats.

We have two kittens in our fully enclosed vegetable garden. They are never allowed in the house as I am allergic. We will ask a neighbour to feed them during your stay so you will not be responsible for them unless you wish to be :-) They have lovely temperaments (have never scratched our kids despite them being a bit rough with them!)


We have a "reasonable use" policy with regards to our rubbish bins. When staying for a weekend, you may use:

- half of our large 240L red bin (that is, 120L, versus Lane Cove council allowing 80L per house for a whole week).

- half of a large 240L recycling bin (the same amount that Lane Cove council allows per household for a whole week).

The same amounts are allowed for people staying Monday to Friday, with double for those staying for a full week.

This is to ensure there is space in the rubbish bin for guests who stay after you. If there are no guests staying after you we will let you know and you will be able to use more space. Unfortunately, if there are guests staying after you (and before the next rubbish collection), the cost incurred in disposing of the excess rubbish will be taken out of your bond.

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at The Sunny Avocan and it was fantastic!

The house was spacious and clean and was even better than the pictures. It has a wonderful vegetable garden and huge backyard that is perfect for the kids to play in when you’re not at the beach. It’s a short stroll from the beach, less than 10min, but it’s a steep driveway and an uphill so a little longer with toddlers. Kathy was wonderful, she was always available if I had any questions and even reminded us about the bins! The only thing that was missing was a broom, with little ones that constantly drop things it would have been handy. There was a Dyson hand held but couldn’t suck very well.

Thank you again Kathy for letting us all enjoy our summer break at your house. We can’t wait to go back again.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our mother's birthday getaway at the The Sunny North Avocan. Beautifully presented and spacious family home with magnificent views very close to the beach and all amenities. Our host was very hospitable, accessible and extremely helpful. Highly recommend the Sunny North Avocan.

Lovely family friendly retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Australia Day Long weekend here with several families. It is very well set up for this type of get away. The kids disappeared into the play room and we could hardly believe that we couldn't hear them! We actually had good adult catch up time.

The outdoor deck area is lovely, very nice views.

My personal favourite was the vege patch, but then I love my gardens.

The trampoline was well loved my the kids ranging in age from 2 yrs to 9 yrs.

Thanks for sharing your home with us. We hope to be able to have another get away soon.
