  • Hello folks, I've seen the previous question around Covid and cancellation and things have perhaps changed since that question. We are travelling from SA to NSW so concerned in the event of any sudden lockdown and the loss of our holiday investment .. please comment? Thanks!

    Regarding Covid cancellations, we are happy to refund your deposit ( which is always 1 nights accommodation paid prior to arrival)) providing it's due to lock down and not decision of guests changing their mind not to come.

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.
