Beachside Paradise

Just a few hours north of Sydney lies this beautiful beachfront property that is truly a slice of heaven. Picture going to sleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore, waking up to go for a swim with the dolphins and then getting cosy by the fire while watching the sunset over Seal Rocks. Hard to believe this place exists.

On our first morning, we woke early to venture up to the lighthouse and watch the sunrise over the ocean. This area is so peaceful, and I think we only saw one other person come up the entire time we were up there. The views are second to none. To your right, you can see all the way down Lighthouse beach and to your left are views spanning to Boomerang beach on a clear day.

We lucked out on the weather and spent most of our time down at the quiet beach right in front of the property. We grabbed paddleboards and made our way around the little rock island then down the beach to catch some waves. If you want to learn to surf, there are some really nice small waves to practice on. This area is also teaming with sea life, just in our short time we saw schools of fish, stingrays and of course dolphins.

Back up in the house, there is a comfy large daybed with big windows that open up to let the ocean breeze come in. For me, this was one of the highlights. Making lunch, then rugging up on the day bed and watching the sun go down over the bay was a moment I won't be forgetting anytime soon.

All the rooms were super cosy and comfortable, with a Balinese cross modern beach house aesthetic. If you're planning on staying here, be sure to bring your camera!

    The best viewpoint of seal rocks is only a 15-minute walk from the house. Be sure to get up for sunrise and take in the views!...

      Some of the clearest waters you will ever see. Take the complimentary paddleboards out and get adventurous. If you're confident, paddle around Seal Rocks bay or catch some waves on the point at Number One Beach....
