Great Mackerel Beach is 40km (1hr) drive
north of Sydney, located on the western shore of Pittwater, opposite Palm Beach wharf. Access is by regular ferry service (30mins) or water taxi (5mins). There are no shops or cars on Great Mackerel Beach - so BYO everything you wish to drink and eat and wear.
We do offer a provisioning service for your holiday. Place your order online with Woolsworths and Dan Murphys in Mona Vale. It will be collected the morning of your check-in and delivered to the house ready for your arrival. Please discuss the cost of this service, with Anna if you are interested.
We leave you alone to enjoy the entire property, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you are concerned or have any questions that the answers can not be found in the house manual. This manual should be found on the kitchen book shelves.
There is no other place like Great Mackerel Beach. Access is by water only.
It is like living in the country on the most beautiful sought after beach. Amazing place all year round, cooled by the northeast sea breeze in summer and protected from the cool winter winds from the south or west.
Simply hang out, swim, read and soak up the views and relax.
For the more energetic there is plenty to do
* Go bushwalking, bird watching, pack a picnic, fish off the beach or jetty, hirer a boat to go deep sea fishing, indulge in a scenic seaplane flight, play a round of golf or learn to surf at Palm Beach.
Most people choose to relax in the magical surrounds, read a good book and enjoy the company of their companions whilst over indulging in good food and wine.
There is minimum stay requirement of 2 nights outside school holidays. During peak times and school holidays the minimum stay is 5 nights stay.
Absolutely NO more than eight people in the house.

*Putting washing up away
* Washing sand off the beach toys, including kayaks and returning them to the boatshed ready for the next guests.
