Situated in a uniquely semi rural area on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, behind a gated entry you’ll find Waratah Retreat. A spacious resort style house on expansive land with bush and ocean views. Surrounded by Garrigal National park with abundant walking and mountain bike trails

From the moment you walk into Waratah Retreat you will not only be in awe of the 6 meter high exposed timber cathedral ceilings and the floor to ceiling windows but you will find the expansive outlook to the ocean simply breathtaking.

Waratah Retreat is the ultimate destination for any season with an open wood fireplace for cold winter nights or laze by the pool while taking in the expansive views to the ocean or enjoy relaxing in the outdoor heated spa.

For those that love entertaining there is plenty of space on the deck where you can share some laughs with family and friends while cooking a bbq or even enjoy a Pizza feast with the wood fire pizza oven.

Whether you are seeking a family getaway, or a relaxing break with friends, Waratah Retreat has just what you are looking for.

Featuring four comfortable bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, open log fireplace, pool, spa and a lavish deck overlooking the pool and expansive coastal views.

Guests have all the facilities they need without having to go anywhere else, we suggest bringing provisions as you may not want to leave.

For those that want to explore the area, just a 7 minute drive away are a choice of local beaches, a short drive to Palm Beach or to Church Point to enjoy the still waters of Pittwater

Ingleside market is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away where you can get barista-style coffee, fresh produce, flowers and café meals. A small dog may be allowed on request only.

A great experience!

Ben Walshe | 7th April 2023

Pizza oven was a huge bonus for feeding the group. Excellent way to get the group together to do some cooking. The property is in an excellent location in a beautiful bushy area of the northern beaches. Great local pub - only 12 mins from the stunning Newport Arms Hotel. Highly recommend!
