Nestled beside the Kuringai Chase National Park and accessible only by water, 'Cudgegong' is a 3 bedroom house overlooking the sheltered bay of Coasters Retreat on Pittwater, facing The Basin. Wallabies, goannas and brush turkeys forage peacefully on the lawn below the verandah in this very quiet community. Go swimming, bushwalking, fishing or simply relax on the verandah by day and enjoy the open fire by night. Sleep peacefully on brand new mattresses.

El lugar

At Cudgegong there are neighbours either side if you need help, but it's a very quite, chilled-out community. Behind the house is a hillside that leads to the Kuringai-Chase National Park. Sheoaks predominate, but if you climb the hill for 10 minutes to the lookout you will find an angophera forest with many wildflowers, especially in spring. Walking tracks to Towlers Bay and other places branch off from the road to West Head, about 40 minutes walk away.
Coasters Retreat faces the popular National Parks campground at the Basin, which is busy in holiday times, and Currawong, the NSW government historic holiday camp, a little further away. The feeling is of a bushy enclave with the water providing a spacious outlook, especially from Bennetts Wharf below which offers view across to Barrenjoey Head with its famous lighthouse.
The wharf is good for jumping off and fishing. Right next to the wharf is pretty netted beach good for toddlers and getting wet. Further along, past Bonnie Doon, is the corner beach, sandy and flat for good safe swimming and just a little further along around the rocks is The Basin - a large deep netted sea pool surrounded by bush. It's a little tricky getting in across oyster-strewn rocks, but worth it. The other option if you have little kids is to take the ferry around two stops and get off at The Basin, where there is a lot of sandy beach that slopes gently into the water and an excellent picnic area complete with wallabies and elecrtric barbeques.

Disponible para huéspedes

You'll have the complete house to yourself with use of all amenities except the laundry.

Otros aspectos destacables

Coasters Retreat is a magical place in may ways - partly because it's off the grid. There is no wifi at the house, but Telstra gets reception through 4G, and others carriers can access it from the front lawn.
There is a travel cot for a baby or toddler that can be made up on request.

On departure, please don't bother to strip the beds - our housekeeper takes care of that. Bring furniture in off the verandah, except the dining setting and little sofa that live on the verandah. Please wash up and put away your dishes and so on, and clean the grill if you used it. Thanks for your help - Madeline

Madeline’s place is in an absolutely wonderful location. If you are in need of some peaceful time away from the city, that is the perfect place to be :) We really enjoyed our stay there and the opportunity to feel so connected to nature. Madeline is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. The house is beautiful with water view.

This place is absolutely magical. Beautiful spot and wonderfully cosy. Reasonably well appointed for full comfort. Would serve a big family perfectly. The house is clean and kitchen has good capacity for cooking. The views are unbeatable and the animals in the garden a delight. Madeline was really helpful and always got in touch with us and replied to our questions. Definitely recommend.

Our family, including 3 kids and grandparents, had a wonderful 5 days at Coasters. The house suited us perfectly, with areas to relax, great views and wildlife visiting the yard. The area is magical, we did a few walks but spent a lot of time swimming. If you have any sort of water craft, I recommend you take it to enhance the experience further. When we were there, there were kayaks and SUPs for hire at the basin for an hourly rate. The ferry trip was easy, although I think it might be cheaper, with groups, to get a water taxi. Madeline's communication was great and gave us clear instructions for the stay. We would definitely return, there is plenty more to do there.

This is an amazing location for a holiday. We had the most relaxing lovely holiday. We were able to explore a range of beautiful beaches like the basin, currawong beach, makerel beach etc. there were Goannas, wallabies and kookaburras on the front lawna and beautiful views from the house. The house was lovely and Madeline was a lovely easy host to communicate with. It is truly one of those locations that without air b n b you would never get to experience. Would love to bring my family back there again.

Great natural escape from the city and Madeline responded to messages promptly. Catch L90 bus from Wynyard and then ferry. Recommend climbing Barrenjoey Head, and also the Boathouse, Barrenjoey House and Club Palm Beach (RSL) for coffee or meals.

I am a freelance writer working from home. I love hosting because to me it's like travelling because of all the travellers I meet, but with the comforts of home :)
