A Palm Beach getaway

If you are in need of a mid-year getaway, Barrenjoey House Palm Beach is the ideal place to stay.

While Palm Beach is best known for its beaches and summer lifestyle, Winter is also one of our favourite seasons in Sydney, and there is so much to do in the local area.

Seven guest rooms are located above the restaurant, including The Loft which is on the its own level at the top of the building. Each room includes a marble ensuite bathroom, television and complimentary mini bar. The guest rooms have been designed to feel relaxed and coastal, featuring custom interiors from The Boathouse Home store in Palm Beach.
