Pretty Beach House

Pretty Beach House is a sophisticated and private hideaway set high on an escarpment looking down on beautiful NSW Bouddi Peninsula. It is intimate and secluded – a special haven for select guests.

The building is redolent in timber and sandstone, the interior an exercise in light and texture. The generous deck is set with a magnificent infinity pool enjoying views through stands of ancient anaphoras and native eucalypts to oyster beds on the sparkling Broken Bay.
Four one-bedroom pavilions (Treetops, Bayview, Hideaway and The Retreat) enjoy glimpses to the water and feature private decks with heated plunge pools and absolute privacy. The Main House has atrium-style dining and lounging area, intimate cocktail bar, wine cellar, open fireplace and the spectacular pool.

Those who like to explore will enjoy the coastal walking trails leading off into Bouddi National Park and Pretty Beach; everyone will love the round-the-clock attentions of the hosts, dedicated to your every need.
All meals and drinks, including wines and champagne, are included in the package.

Location: Pacific Coast

Just a step away from Sydney, the Pacific Coast offers outstanding natural beauty, award-winning attractions and an array of activities. It is perhaps most famous for some of Australia’s most spectacular beaches, popular for surfing, swimming, walking, exploring and (in season) whale watching.
Pretty Beach is 100km north of Sydney, with all its inherent attractions, and across the water from Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous.


Nightly at Pretty Beach House guests get to interact with indigenous members of our community, hear traditional didgeridoo and be a part of the “Welcome to Country” smoking ceremony. A fabulous experience for all travellers. Professionally-guided bush walks through the Bouddi National Park are on offer, along with mountain bike riding. Lobster Beach, Box Head and a local surf break are all within easy walking distance, while Killcare Beach, Putty Beach, the glorious Maitland Bay, and the local seaside villages of Killcare, Wagstaffe and Hardys Bay are close by. For a gastronomic experience, guests may choose to have a degustation lunch and a private chef’s tour of the kitchen garden at multi award-winning sister property, Bells at Killcare Boutique Hotel.

Why not join a challenging fishing charter aboard the 38 foot Pretty Beach CABO sports cruiser; or take a Pretty Beach House picnic hamper and cruise to one of the many secluded bays or beaches. A very romantic day out. Other activities include guided cultural tour of the region with Aboriginal elder, spa experiences in the Bouddi Spa, Kayaking, Paddleboarding, luxury wine tour of the famous Hunter Valley region, private wine tasting, sailing, horse riding, quad biking or golf.
