Overview

About the property

Nestled at the end of a leafy peaceful no through road, and only a 2 minute stroll from Four Mile Beach, is Sea Pavilion.

Sea Pavilion is an architect-designed home that plays on all the senses, capturing the essence of tropical living. Sounds of vigorous birdlife and the gentle lapping of waves on the beach. The visual of lush tropical landscaping which runs through the centre of the property and around the properties pavilions - pigmy palms, Heliconia's, lipstick palms and a Frangipani tree just to mention a botanical few. There is even a frequent morning show of Ulysses butterflies that flutter from a tall backdrop of paperbark trees lining the back boarder of the property (usually viewed with my first coffee of the day, lounging on the outdoor settee). There is even a resident bush turkey (completely harmless) that struts its stuff, walking down the central covered walkway of a morning.

Being so close to the beach, we receive many sea breezes which travel through the properties indoor and outdoor living spaces, aided by louvres, large bifold doors, casement windows and ceiling fans. For those still days that lack sea breezes, a simple alternative is to seal up elected pavilions and turn on the air-conditioning.

Specifically designed to comfortably cater for all age groups, be it a family of 3 generations, a large group of friends or 5 couples, nothing has been overlooked. The building layout provides both private and communal living spaces, from which guests may pick and choose depending on their mood.

FEATURES:

BEDROOMS:

There are 5 double bedrooms, each with ensuite including bath and shower, and a 6th single bedroom. The Master bedroom ensuite has a spa bath, and the bifold doors in the bedroom open out to a private patio with direct access to the pool. One of the ground floor bedrooms with ensuite is wheelchair friendly, fitted with hand rails near toilet/bath/shower. The whole of the ground floor building is on a single level, extending wheelchair friendly functioning.

POOL:

There is a large outdoor pool (64m2), which is heated throughout June-October, with a ledge that runs the longest length of the pool. This sitting ledge was designed to cater for 5pm happy hour and small children who are able to stand upon it independently under supervision.

KITCHEN:

The kitchen has been equipped to deal with any cooking aspiration or contingency, and for large groups of people. There are 2 dishwashers, a fridge with built in ice dispenser and filtered water, separate bottle fridge, and a DeLonghi coffee maker as well as Nespresso machine - take your pick. And I must not forget to mention the humble sandwich-press maker which comes in handy for those parents with fussy little eaters, and the food processor for cocktails!

OUTDOOR DINING/LOUNGING:

There is an outdoor dining table that seats 11 people, with the option of extending an automated shade sail during the day or retracting it back after the sun goes down. Alternatively, if you are set up eating outside and a surprise rain shower greats you, simply extend the sail by pressing its remote controller and nobody needs to duck for cover.

There is also a 6 seater outdoor lounge settee that is housed under a extended fixed A-Frame canopy with ceiling fan. The canopy is designed to shade as well as be 100% rain proof. One of my favourite pass times during the wet season is to lounge under the canopy with ceiling fan on, glass of white wine in hand, absorbing the smells of a moistened tropical garden and listening to the sound of steady rain on the canopy's corrugated iron roof, feeling amongst it all, with the security of keeping dry.

It should be mentioned that both upstairs bedrooms have a seizable private balcony with 2 chairs/balcony. In addition, 2 large luxurious lounge chairs are positioned on the Master bedroom's private patio. Lastly for the sun worshippers, there are 2 comfortable banana lounges directly by the pool.

GYM:

For those fitness-concious people out there who cannot bear to have a holiday without exercise and hate waiting in line for machines at the public gym, we have equipped an on-site gym with cross-trainer, exercise bike, treadmill, hand weights, cable TV, air-conditioning and ceiling fans.

5 Star Property - amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Pavilion for 5 days and could not fault the property. It was everything that it appears to be and more. Definitely 5 star accommodation. Narelle was amazing to deal with right from the very first enquiry. Nothing was to much trouble. My family of 9 all had an amazing time and the house was definitely big enough for all of us with enough room to not be living in each others pockets. We would all definitely stay here again and none of us wanted to leave. Five days was definitely not long enough.

An amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at the Sea Pavillion! Right from when we booked to the very end, it was an absolute pleasure! We made the most of this beautiful property and spent most of our time here. We didn't want to leave! We all had our privacy but were able to spend time together as well. It was immaculate, easy and felt like it was our own private resort. Narelle and Michelle were exceptional to deal with. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Absolutely brilliant!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This property provided us with the ideal venue for a family holiday.

Mum and Dad with 4 adult children, with partners and 2 grand kids.

Spacious and clean. More like a small luxury resort.

Michelle was out the front waiting for the greet and meet, and showed us through the property.

In the lead up to our stay, Narelle was friendly and helpful with all my enquiries and requests.

The property manual on site explains everything. (Had I bothered to read it sooner, there would have been no reason to bother the Host !!)

The whole family loved the property and we have no hesitation it recommending this property to other families who wish to share time together.

Wonderful Time at Sea Pavillion

  • 5 of 5

As others have already commented - wow what a spectacular place!

I booked this property 12 months before we stayed, and from the moment the booking was excepted, Narelle, the owner couldn't be more helpful. She rang and had a chat to discuss what our requirements were, what facilities the property offered, and gave me the opportunity to ask any questions. Then about a week before we arrived, she emailed more information and sent all the contact details, which was really appreciated.

When we arrived Michelle (the property manager) was there to great us, explain about keys and other important information. She also provided a six pack of beer and some lovely flowers in the kitchen.

All our guests (11 in total, family and friends) were blown away by the house and the high standard of finishes in all the rooms. The pool in particular was a big hit, nice and deep which is really good, and plenty big enough for all of us. My sister who is a nervous non swimmer commented she felt very safe in the pool with the large ledge that ran along one of the sides.

I couldn't have wished for a better place to celebrate my 50th. I have already recommended this place to others to consider for a special occasion.

Thanks again to Narelle and Michelle for their excellent customer service and attention to detail.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much Kylie. I am thrilled your 50th Birthday was a great success. Good to hear that the purpose built ledge in the pool worked for your sister. Take care and hopefully we may see you back at the house again :)
