What to Look for in a Northern Beaches Holiday Home

What to Look for in a Northern Beaches Holiday Home

Sydney’s Northern Beaches region is a wonderful holiday destination for families. With national parks, quaint seaside suburbs, pristine beaches, amazing cafes and eateries, cute village shops, gorgeous waterways, and amazing trails, the area offers something for all ages.

Although there are many types of accommodation options in the Northern Beaches, when holidaying with the family, there is no better option than a holiday home. Today, I’ll share with you some of my personal tips to help you book the perfect Northern Beaches holiday home for your family holiday.

1. Is it available when I want to travel?

The first thing to consider when looking at Northern Beaches holiday homes is whether the property is available when you want to travel. Consider your dates of travel and make sure to book accommodation accordingly.

2. Is it within my budget?

If the holiday home you’re looking at is available on your dates of travel, the next thing to consider is whether it is within your budget. There’s no point considering holiday homes that lie outside your budget. Also, there’s no point overspending on your accommodation if it means that you will then have less money to spend on other aspects of your holiday, like family activities.

3. How many bedrooms does it have?

Choose a holiday home with enough bedrooms for everyone – this will obviously depend on the number of people in your family or travel group. You’ll find plenty of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom holiday homes in the Northern Beaches, especially on our website. Always choose accommodation that offers enough space for every member of your family.

4. What amenities are included?

Northern Beaches holiday homes often include unique amenities that you won’t find in other holiday rentals. For instance, several of our holiday homes include an outdoor shower and outdoor entertainment facilities that enhance the beachside holiday experience. Make sure to check the amenities on offer before you book your accommodation.

5. Are shops and cafes within walking distance?

While you may be looking for a peaceful holiday home, you don’t want a holiday home that is located in the middle of nowhere. Always look for accommodation that is within walking distance of cafes, shops and the beach. You’ll find exactly this with our Northern Beaches holiday homes.

6. Is the holiday home letting agency licensed?

Before you finalise your booking, make sure that the holiday home letting agency is licensed. Choosing licensed agencies will provide you with peace of mind, and this will allow you to enjoy your Northern Beaches holiday much better.

7. Do they have a professional website and staff?

Finally, to make sure that you are booking your Northern Beaches holiday home from a reputable and trustworthy agency, check to see if they have a professional website and staff. Never go with accommodation providers who don’t provide detailed information on their websites.


Sydney’s Northern Beaches is one of the best destinations for a family holiday. The region is best experienced from the luxury and privacy of a holiday home.

There are certain things to look for when it comes to finding Northern Beaches holiday homes suitable for a family holiday. Check if the home is available on your dates of travel and whether it is within your budget or not. Check the details of the home including the number of bedrooms and the amenities and facilities on offer. Check the location and make sure it is located within walking distance of the beach, shops, and cafes. Finally, ensure the provider is licensed with a professional website and staff.
