Airbnb & Gift Shop
Perhaps you've found yourself here because you're thinking about taking a holiday (great idea)... or maybe you've come for the care packages or thoughtfully sourced products in our on-line shop. Either way, welcome, we're happy you found us.
Our two bedroom holiday rental apartment is just a jump, skip and a hop (literally) away from Avalon’s main town. The Juliette balcony from the sunroom (or second bedroom) looks out over the main street so you can sip your wine or coffee as you watch the town come to life of a night or the surfers strolling past in the morning. The lounge and dining is a beautiful tranquil space with ample natural light, adorned with botanicals collected from my own bush walks in the area and art & furnishings from the many local fabulous antique stores and artists.
Our airbnb has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Being so close to town you’ll probably want to take advantage of the great restaurants, cafes and bars but for those who want a quiet night in we have all the essential cooking utensils you’ll need to make a mean winter stew or fresh summer salad. Whatever tickles your fancy. We’ve even got a few classic boardgames too if Netflix and chill isn’t your cup of tea. Please note, we do not have a TV. But we have ample WIFI, so by all means bring your computer and stream any of your favourite shows or films 'til your heart is content. There's also a cinema on the main street just around the corner, so you can take advantage of the short stroll into town and catch a flick!
Our pantry is stocked with ‘must haves’ including: cookies, marshmallows, drinking chocolate, a small selection of teas, ground coffee, oil & vinegar and pepper & salt. You’ll need to BYO milk. With so many options these days it’s beyond our capabilities to cater for everyone’s unique preferences as I’m sure you’ll understand. But rest assured, pretty much all cafes in town do. We also have a washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board if you need to some laundry; A porta-cot, baby-monitor, baby bath and a few toys for those travelling with kiddies; And... last but not least, (in fact very important in our humble opinion), a bathroom with bath to soak the ocean and sand away… and seperate toilet to keep the romance fires burning.
The Sunkissed Casa BnB is located in Sydney's north, close to beaches and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Combining important history with scenic beauty, making it perfect for bushwalking, picnicking, cycling and fishing. TIP: Take the Aboriginal Heritage walk highlighting rock art and engravings of the Aboriginal people of West Head in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. There are waterfalls and secret beaches too! This is one of our favourite spots. Barrenjoey Lighthouse stands at Barrenjoey Head at Palm Beach on Sydney's northern beaches. Built in 1881, this heritage lighthouse is an iconic Sydney attraction. TIP: Do this walk early in the morning to avoid the many other people who travel far and wide to this on a weekend. You will love the view from the top. Visit Bobbin Head picnic area in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and enjoy a barbecue or a spot of fishing. Go canoeing or hire a paddle boat for a great daytrip. Are you wild about whales? Our holiday rental provides picnic essentials so you can sit on Avalon headland and watch them passing by. TIP: Whale watching is in the winter months so if you're visiting in Summer, don't come for the whales! Dolphins however, are all year round!
Sunkissed Casa BnB is the perfect beach getaway for couples, or a small group of friends wanting to escape the city. She’s cosy & romantic, authentic and unpretentious. She’s linen sheets and big cosy bath towels. We imagine this place as somewhere we would love to visit without our kids, a weekend away to remind ourselves that we have a life outside of parenting. :) Having said that, we are definitely child friendly and have a portable-cot, baby bath and baby monitor available if needed. There are also a few select toys tucked away in the cupboard. The space does includes a few one off antiques and art pieces so if you have particularly rambunctious kids (like ours!!) please let us know so we can tuck them away prior to your arrival. The apartment is located on the second floor and has a Juliette balcony with some chairs to enjoy a coffee. Please make sure all children are fully attended when on the balcony for obvious safety reasons.
