Refuge Cove on Pittwater is located just across the road from the water.and so offers great views of Pittwater We have 3 decks and a full size BBQ area, for guests to make the most of outdoor living. Only 150 meters from Taylor's Point wharf and pool and another few meters onto Clareville Beach,paddle boarding and kayaking is within walking distance 5 minutes driving get you to some of Australia's best known surf beaches and 10 minutes to Palm Beach (or Summer Bay, to Home & Away fans) Your luxurious beach house is also,only a five minute drive to the cosmopolitan Avalon surf beach and village, where you can find some wonderful boutique shopping, fine dining and cafes. For the more sports minded there are surf shops, a nine hole golf course, tennis courts and a bowling club. Located only 35 kms drive north of the Sydney CBD and 50 kms from the airport, this is the perfect place to stay, relax and enjoy anything from 2 days to 2 months.
We are your hosts Ian and Robyn, a married couple who have loved living on the Northern Beaches for over 25 years. We have both been involved, through our children, with the Avalon Surf Club for over 15 years and highly recommend the local beach for swimming, surfing and boating activities. As we’re very well informed about the area, we’re only too happy to share any helpful local knowledge that can make your stay at Refuge Cove on Pittwater as enjoyable as possible.
Avalon beach, just a short 5 minute drive from the apartment is a cosmopolitan place with so much to offer. With surf shops, boutique shopping, cafes and fine dining, RSL, cinema, library, gym, yoga and pilates studios. For the more sports minded there is a bowling club and tennis courts as well as two 9 hole and one 18 hole golf course within easy access Scenic Palm Beach sea planes can take you for a sightseeing flight, Water Ferries operate all through the area and if you are holidaying during June/July or October/November you might be just lucky enough to spot some whales.
