With only 4 rooms this gem of a hideaway is the perfect quick trip from Sydney. Reached by road via the Central Coast (not my favourite option), or ferry from Palm Beach (far more relaxing) or for a real treat, as we did by seaplane from Rose Bay …. Pretty Beach House looks out over beautiful gum trees to Brisbane... More

Pretty Beach House offers exceptional personal service in a private quiet relaxed resort. The accommodation is outstanding and even had hair straighteners kept in a little box for you to discover. The food was outstanding and catered for personal tastes. Whilst there was no menu for you to select from ...the chefs adjusted any item that you did not like.... More

This would be one of the top luxury lodges of Australia. The décor and amenities were first class and the staff headed by the manager Joe were attentive and helpful. We liked the fact that although it was not a cheap tariff everything was included. The chef was excellent and the wines we were served were great. We particularly enjoyed... More

Pretty Beach House is the ideal weekend luxury escape from Sydney, as it is only 1.5 hours drive from the city - or a short trip by sea plane. It really is the most stunning property, set high above the water amongst beautiful bush and trees that are sculptural and full of life. Pretty Beach House has been closed for... More

I took my partner away there for our anniversary a few years back and it was hands down the best weekend we have ever had! The property (once you find it tucked away) is absolutely stunning set in beautiful bush land, the actual house is also beautiful along with the pavilions, views, setting, food and drinks, peace and quite and...

It's perfect. Background: Look at the reviews and you'll see we've done quite a few Luxury Lodges over a period of time and this is up there with Saffire, my favourite until now. Rooms: There are only 3 so it is important to remember that each is unique. Great lounge area in ours with views over the water to watch... More

On Sydney's doorstep bordering the Bauddi National Park, Pretty Beach House is one of those rare finds that you have to weigh up wether to tell the world or keep in secret!

A spur of the moment decision to spend Christams away from Sydney (and family!) for the first time in years, led us book the Hideway Pavillion at Pretty Beach House for 3 nights over the Christmas break and what a good decision that was!
