Available Dec 1-29
Relaxed Newport home, with generous open plan living areas, lush tropical gardens & stunning views of Pittwater.
Walking distance to beach, shops & restaurants.
Our house is full of books, music and comfortable corners to relax and enjoy the laid back vibe of Newport. There's a main deck that extends across the entire front of the property, with gorgeous views across Pittwater. A really lovely space to soak up the afternoon sun or enjoy a BBQ on the Weber Q.
There's also a smaller, more secluded deck with a beautiful herb garden or you could explore the extensive winding paths through the tropical garden.
There's parking for two cars on the driveway.
It's worth noting our driveway is pretty steep (hence the great views) and there are then two flights of stairs down to the house itself. The main living areas and master bedroom/ensuite are on this level. There's another flight of stairs down to the area we've used as a teenage retreat - it has two bedrooms, a second bathroom, laundry and living area.
The kitchen is very well equipped, there'll be plenty of basics available in the pantry and there's an extensive library of cookbooks for inspiration.
Servicios y zonas comunes
There's full access to all areas of the house and garden - the only space that's out of bounds is the garage, which we will be using for storage.
You'll have access to our WiFi internet and our Foxtel subscription (pay TV).
There's a second TV in the master bedroom and a TV downstairs for watching DVDs or using the Playstation.
Atención a los huéspedes
You'll have the whole house to yourselves, without interruption from us.
We will be available by phone/email to answer queries and will have a contact who will deal with any emergencies.
Otros aspectos destacables
Preference will be given to long term bookings: the property is available for nearly all of December.
Our house is built onto the side of a hill and the decks are quite high... it makes for spectacular views but may mean it's not ideal for very small children.
The steep driveway and stairs might also be a problem for the elderly or nervous drivers!
Please respect our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum.
There's a security bond of $1000, refunded in full if the house is left as you found it.
Cleaning fee is $130.
We're happy to welcome pets, by arrangement... part of the garden has been fenced and is safe for dogs. Please clean up after your dog. A tick collar is advisable for anywhere on the Northern Beaches.
We moved to the Northern Beaches about 3 years ago - and it's one of the best things we've ever done. We love the relaxed, laid-back feel of Newport, where every day feels like a holiday.
We have family in England - and we try to travel as much as possible - but coming home to the Beaches is always very special.
Books are a particular passion - fiction, non-fiction, politics, history, sport, show business - anything and everything.
And I love to cook, whether it's a simple BBQ or a full-on long, long lunch.
