Architect designed waterfront house on Scotland Island with private jetty. Modern, airy home with comfortable luxury. 2 decks facing Pittwater invite you to laze the days away and enjoy the views.
Ideal for families with older kids (12+) or adult groups who can appreciate everything the house and location have to offer. Bring your watercraft and have endless fun, use our double kayak, go for bush walks in the NP opposite or drive to one of the many stunning beaches both on the ocean and on Pittwater. It's paradise!
Scotland Island is a truly unique place. It is so close to Sydney and everything a big city has to offer, yet it's a world away at the same time.
Things work differently on the island. People here are a community, we share and we help each other. So, if you have a problem don't hesitate to ask the neighbours. Especially in case of an emergency.
There are lots of walks all over the island and you are allowed to walk along the shore (easier at low tide), even if it may look private, it isn't.
As we have only very few cars on the island, it is quite safe for kids to ride their bikes or run around. Due to the nature of an island, though, we recommend that your children are confident swimmers and old enough to understand the dangers of swimming in open waters.
Bring your own surf board, kayak (or use ours), boat, fishing tackle and snorkeling gear and enjoy everything life on the water has on offer!
If you like bush walks, take the ferry from 'Tennis' across to 'Halls', 'Lovett Bay' or 'Elvina' and walk through the NP.
Or drive by boat or car to Palm Beach for a climb up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse, which offers spectacular views, grab a bite at 'The Boatshouse', and then cool down with a swim in the ocean.
Then there is 'West Head', 'Cottage Point' and 'Akuna Bay' along with lots of bush walks and cycle opportunities to be explored in Kuringai NP.
Mona Vale offers not only all the necessities, there are also some lovely restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques to discover.
And if you have enjoyed yourselves too much to cook dinner, pop over to the 'Waterfront Cafe' in Church Point for some delicious food.
There is just so much to do and see, you better make a plan - or just grab a book and relax!
Upstairs our house offers an open living/ dining/ kitchen area opening to a large wrap-around deck (with gas BBQ, table and deck chairs) facing beautiful Pittwater, as well as 1 QS and 1 DBL bedroom with access to the rear deck and a bathroom with shower. Downstairs is the main entrance, the Master bedroom with KS bed, the large bathroom with shower and freestanding bath tub, as well as our 2nd living area with direct access to the lower wrap around deck and spectacular views. Depending on your requirements, the room either offers a seating area with 2 sofas or we change them to 2 very comfortable single beds (new King Furniture Delta bed sofas). Please let us know whether you prefer the upstairs DBL bedroom or the 2 singles downstairs.
Linen and a set of towels is provided for free.
There are 2 options to access the island (unless you have your own boat, then just tie up at our jetty (2 palms on the northern side of the island)). The ferry runs from around 7am til 7pm from Church Point to 'Tennis Wharf' or you call a pink water taxi. They run approx from 6am til midnight, but please confirm with them. Contact:
Things to note
As you will see, our home is easy to live in and enjoy, but we have built and decorated it with much care and would appreciate it, if you could treat it accordingly.
We are a non-smoking, no party house, but you are welcome to have friends over for a drink and swim.
We have some chickens in the back garden and you are welcome to the eggs, but don't have to feed them (unless you want to), our neighbours will.
Our house is also on Air BNB, please check for more reviews.
