Surrounded by ancient angophoras and with views through wild eucalypts to the sparkling bay, Pretty Beach House is truly a rare find. A sophisticated, small hotel in a wondrous setting just 90 minutes drive north of Sydney.
The serene and quintessentially Australian bushland setting of the NSW Bouddi National Park, offers rest and relaxation to nature lovers looking for an idyllic escape within a pristine environment without forgoing all of the luxuries of world class hotel. Located on the southern most point of the NSW Central Coast, our luxurious retreat is nestled within the beauty of mother nature and is only a 20 minute ferry trip from Sydney's famous Palm Beach or an exhilarating 20min flight from Sydney (by helicopter or seaplane).
The Bouddi Peninsula is made of up wild escapements of apricot sandstone cliffs and spectacular coastal walks offering panoramic ocean views. Lobster Beach, Box Head and the surf break at Tallow Beach are all within easy walking distance, while Killcare surf beach, Putty Beach, magical Maitland Bay and the quaint seaside villages of Killcare, Wagstaffe and Hardys Bay are all close by.
The word ‘Bouddi’ is the local Aboriginal name for the area. It has various meanings in Aboriginal languages, however is more commonly thought to mean 'heart'. The Bouddi Peninsula is a very significant landscape on the Central Coast with around 100 Aboriginal sites recorded in the park and nearby areas and many more sites are likely to exist. Sites include rock engravings, grinding grooves, rock shelters with art (drawings and paintings), middens and other archeological deposits. We are lucky enough to have three aboriginal artworks (dating back more than 8,000 years) situated right at the doorstep of our luxury retreat. These rock carvings are of animals from the sea, a dolphin, fish & whale.
