Al Mare is a casual, comfortable and very affordable beach house - very well located just behind the Coles / Vincentia shopping centre. It is a five minute walk to beautiful Collingwood Beach, and because of its elevated position, has views to the bay from the upstairs balcony. The very funky BBQ and fire pit area at the back of the house also make this a great, unique option! Please keep in mind to BYO sheets and towels however.
Where will I be?
Al Mare is located very centrally in Vincentia with a local shopping centre just across the road, and Collingwood Beach only a two minute walk from the house. Huskisson, Hyams Beach and the beautiful Booderee National Park are also only a five minute drive. The house is slightly elevated, and the guest accommodation is on the upstairs level - giving good bay views.
Why choose Al Mare?
Al Mare has a great central location, within easy walking distance of all amenities. The house has been very well refurbished and has a great backyard and outdoor entertaining options.
How is the property laid out?
Al Mare is the upstairs level of a two storey house, but guests have use of a second shower downstairs and the back yard. Details are as follows:
The upstairs level has the three bedrooms, an open plan living - dining - kitchen, a shared bathroom, and a balcony that runs the full width of the house. Access is up a flight of stairs from the rear of the property.
The downstairs level is occupied by other guests, but no noise transmits between the two dwellings. Guests also have their own private laundry, with second toilet and shower on this level. The cushions for the BBQ area bench seats are also stored in the laundry.
Please note that the kitchen does not have a dishwasher.
What about outdoors?
Al Mare has a full width balcony upstairs, good lawn areas (front and back), a large covered BBQ area and a fire pit for sitting under the stars around a fire! The cushions for the BBQ area bench seats are also stored in the laundry. There is also a 12 seater picnic table to enjoy your BBQ's, and a swing set for the children. Overall, there are plenty of options for relaxing outside, or for dispersing the kids!
Keeping warm or keeping cool?!
Al Mare can be opened up to catch any sea breeze, and has heaters for the cooler months.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
Al Mare does not supply linen. Linen is to be supplied by tenant or to be arranged with a linen service which we can provide the contact number for. Should you choose to supply your own linen the following will be required: sheets, pillow cases, bath and beach towels, hand towels, bath mats, and face cloths.
Parking for cars, boats etc?
There is off street, open air parking for up to three cars on the driveway to the left of the house. Drive across the grass from the main driveway to access the side, concrete driveway where there is good parking on the left side of the house. The main driveway is generally used by the downstairs guests.
Is my dog or cat also welcome to stay?
Al Mare is not pet friendly. Please contact us for a list of our many pet-friendly options.
What are the minimum stay rules?
There is a minimum two night stay for all bookings, which changes to three nights on long weekends, four nights at Easter and seven night blocks during peak season. Peak season runs from mid-December to the end of the Australia Day long weekend in January.
Are there any special Peak Season rules?
Please note that during peak season, our properties have designated changeover days so as to make the cleaning rosters manageable.
Is there any special information that I should know about?
Please note that the downstairs level of the property is occupied by other guests, there is no dishwasher at this beach house and you will need to organise to BYO linen (sheets and towels).
WiFi, Internet, Netflix or Pay TV - will I have it?
NBN is progressively rolling out along the South Coast of NSW. If your house does have internet and if the owner makes it available to guests, you may use it with no guarantee of reliability or bandwidth by us or the owner. If you bring an internet dongle with you, the best network is generally Telstra. Otherwise, use your smart phone only during your stay or find a local cafe or library that offers free WiFi. If internet access is critical during you stay, please make sure that you have a Plan B.
