“Very comfortable accommodation in pleasant location”
Reviewed February 27, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Care has been taken to provide virtually everything needed for a short-term stay here. Tree Tops is comfortable, quiet and perfect - unless a sea view is essential and a sunny outdoor space is required. There is a small deck with a mini barbecue and a line for drying washing but it does not have a view or furniture for lounging - but then, the price is reasonable and indicates its limitations.

“A Peaceful Retreat!”

My husband and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week at Tree Tops Retreat. It was well located near cafes and Avalon Beach. We could procure all that we needed for our stay from Avalon. We relaxed with the newspapers on the outside porch, slept tranquilly and listened to the birds in the trees during the day. We had privacy and peace in Tracey's little studio and would highly recommend Tree Tops Retreat. Tracey was always available for contact if we needed any assistance. We will be back!

Liked best: The peaceful setting
Liked least: While the fans were adequate, air conditioning would enhance the studio as we had a few very hot days.

“AMAZING - CLEAN Such a Delight”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Tracey and Christian really know how to provide friendly 5** accommodation. Tree Tops was absolutely delightful and a place we will be constantly revisiting. Tracey and Christian have gone way beyond what you could expect. Chocolates on the bed, beach towels for use, luxurious soaps and hair treatments. Great little privacy and own entrance.
They even let us borrow their iron without even a blink of eye.
By far the best place we have stayed at and we use AirBNB and Stayz a lot.
5 star rating for sure!!!!!
Thanks of much for a wonderful weekend during our house hunting.

“A little bit of paradise in Sydney's northern beaches.”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My husband and I have come back to Tree Tops (fromCanada) for a longer stay after being here in 2011. We enjoy this perfect studio apartment because it has everything that we need for a holiday in Sydney. We appreciate the following things
• proximity to Avalon Beach, Whale Beach and Palm Beach
• we are steps away from a bus stop and Sydney's L90 bus gives us access to all the northern beaches and the CBD
• shops, a cinema, library, and cafés, bakeries and a laundromat are a 20 minute walk away in south Avalon
• owners Tracey and Christian are very welcoming and gracious hosts who make us feel "at home"
• we enjoy the little touches such as fresh flowers and foliage on top of the bed linen and fresh towels each Monday morning when we exchange soiled for clean ones
• the view of the tops of trees outside two walls of the apartment are home to many birds so we wake to bird song
• we're hoping to spend more Sydney summers at Tree Tops

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was an excellent place from which to explore the northern Sydney beaches. The accommodation was positively luxurious and the owner extremely helpful.
The location was perfect for the local beach (just 10 minutes walk away) and a shiort 15 minute stroll gave us access to a range of shops and very nice restaurants.
Whilst a car is not necessary, it did allow us the opportunity to visit several of the other beaches nearby including Whale beach, Palm beach and Clareville. We also included a trip to the Blue Mountains which was about a 2 hour drive away; a must for all visitors!

“Superb Retreat”
Reviewed December 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Although this is a studio it is very spacious and more like an small apartment. Tree Tops Retreat is very fitting as the studio is elevated and has windows on two sides looking out to the trees, which I loved. Very light and airy.

The location is excellent with tennis courts a few minutes walk away and the beach and Avalon village fairly flat 15 minute walk. You could easily manage without a car.

It's private and secluded but the owner and her family live next door, which - as a solo traveler - I like. I only had a few days but could happily spend a week or two!

“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I live in Bondi but wanted to visit some friends in Avalon, I booked two nights at Tree Tops Retreat on a recommendation from another friend. It was so fresh and lovely that my son and I decided to book an extra night to really relax into the beachy village life of Avalon. The room is spotless and had everything we needed, the view is of tree tops and the sound of birds chirping adds to the ambience of being nestled in the cabin. It was an easy walk to the beach and into the village for breakfast, we will definitely be returning for another stay soon.
