This beautifully light filled beach house with panoramic ocean views, has a great layout and is extremely well maintained. With absolutely nothing to spend, install yourself here to live the fabulous beaches lifestyle.
When Ray, my cleaner told me in February that he was to retire and go where all good retirees go, the North Coast, I was devastated. Of course it was an over reaction, but I have told you before how Ray saved my marriage each week and that I would spend money on a cleaner before almost anything else in the weekly budget, including food.
I absolutely love the relaxed atmosphere of Bum Balinos Cafe and the Bilgola Beach views are to die for. The food and coffee are not bad either. I love escaping down here for a coffee after school drop off, or early on the weekend before the crowd arrives. Bring your cozzies and take a dip in the surf. It's a great way to work off any calories taken on at the cafe. The whole place is magical and a visit to Bilgola Beach and Kiosk, will certainly lift your spirits.
This lovely waterfront home in Palm Beach is very private and tastefully renovated. Designed as open plan, allowing the light to flood in, the beautiful 'Iloura' would make a fabulous first or second home. Located on a quiet street and over looking Pittwater and Ku ring gai Chase National park, this is truly living the beaches lifestyle.
Recently I caught up with my lovely girlfriend Cath for lunch. We normally catch up, in the school holidays with our kids, who get on like a house on fire. Or together with a group of mutual girl friends for dinner, but we had both been away for the last school holidays and we were having withdrawals, so decided to do lunch whilst the kids were at school.
I must say I am rather partial to a private estate with ocean views. This lovely 4 bedroom home is set on 1800sqm and was built c. 1948. It has been beautifully updated and comes complete with a 12.5m heated pool and Caribbean styled cabana. Walk to beach and village to make the most of the wonderful Northern Beaches lifestyle. For all her lovely details and to view a floor plan. Take a look here
Hyeres (pronounced ee air) is an Olympic sailing town and forms the western boarder to the the Cote d'Azure in France. It is definitely not in the same league as St Tropez, but nevertheless, is a very beautiful coastal town and ultimately it began to grow on me.
Wow what a stunner St Tropez is. Mr Beach House was loathe to go, but I said we can’t come all this way and pass over probably the most famous beach resort in Europe if not the world, so we went to lunch in a restaurant with sand on the floor..........I mean they actually meant to have sand on the floor.
Here's the next episode in Shenanigans on the French Riviera:
We found a cute little beach just down from the yacht club with
a great hotel two doors down, that does good coffee and hot chocolate. So the
kids are getting to swim on a daily basis and I have access to an easy coffee
fix in lovely surroundings. Yay!! The private
beach concept is a little weird, but when in Rome and all that.
I've been AWOL for a few days. Moving house to Heyres on the Med
and getting Mr Beach House all set for the regatta has been somewhat hectic. One has to ask “Are we having fun yet?” I so do not see the joy in competitive sailing,
especially at international level, but there are 517 competitors here, so
clearly I am missing something.
Hi I'm Carolyn coming to you from a sweet little beach house on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Desire Empire is my passion and I love all things vintage, interiors, food, travel and family. Come and join me on my journey in paradise.
