The Space The guest level of Florida House has recently received a make over. This level rented on it's own has hardwearing floors and is intended to be robust enough for most kinds of groups and their kind of parties. A working artist's home that is filled with stories and intrigue, history and drama. Monitor Lizards like small dragons patrol the premises, along with Bush Turkey and Possums... A great setting for a masquerade ball or "How to Host a Murder". Perched with gun-barrel views down Palm Beach across to the lighthouse. This is a place that Home & Away fans' dream of, where Summer Bay meets Game of Thrones! Guest Access Guests have access to level one of Florida House with potential for other areas to be rented on request. The rumpus room/garage is lined with red velvet curtains and has large murals on the walls and floor. There is a bar and other props that make this a dance floor space or group exercise floor class if weather is inclement. (We have yoga and Bootcamp retreats - ask if interested in attending) Bands have rehearsed and written albums here in perfect harmony of life, work, play balance!
The guest level has a bathroom with large claw bath and separate shower. The outside shower has hot running water and is available for guest use. When guests exceed the sleeping arrangements on the guest level the queen bed in the 5th level tower is potentially available along with 6 other single beds, a queen, 2 doubles and shared use of 2 other bathrooms.
The professional kitchen on level 2 can be worked out in your hire to cater meals larger than the guest kitchenette can handle and the BBQ and massive outdoor table that seats 20 is available. There is also a dining table inside off the kitchen area that seats about 20 people. These areas are part of the main house and can be included, please discuss when booking what your needs and catering plans are. Interaction with Guests Depending on the circumstances and style of the booking. The guest level only booking for 10 people is an exclusive level that is self contained and very private. Larger bookings will have access to other floors and areas. The artist in residence and other occasional guest or family visiting will respect your privacy, especially if requested, but be happy to tell you more about the place or artwork if you are interested. In this creative and free spirited environment, where your booking applies to shared areas a natural progression of minimal socialising is to be expected unless otherwise stipulated. The artist in residence spends the majority of time working in her studio and is enthusiastic to have your stay as enjoyable as possible. There are friends of the artist who have offered to come to guests stays and cook and clean - gourmet chef, macro &/or vegan wholefoods chef, paella master, king of the BBQ... The's plenty of options for eating out but if you want to eat in and work something out there's bound to be something to suit everyone's tastes. The Neighborhood Palm Beach is a fantastic surf beach, a couple of minutes walk from the surf craft hire if the Florida House surf boards and boogie boards don't suit your needs. It takes under an hour to walk to the headland and about an hour to climb to the lighthouse. The Pitt Water Beaches, like Barrenjoey Beach are flat water with various boats and windsurfers available for hire. The premises is at the south end of the beach where there is an olympic size coastal sea pool and rockpool walk.

The L90 and 190 Bus routes run from approx 5:30am to 1:00am in both directions. Other Things to Note Most holiday rental places aren't tolerant or encouraging of parties. We are! The guest level in particular is sunk into the landscape making it easier to absorb sound allow your enjoyment to continue. The location is surrounded by nature so if you want peace over party it's all there. ...
