Whale Beach, Australia
Amanwali - Luxury Beach House
Amanwali – Luxury Beach House
Offering sweeping views of the vast expanse of Whale Beach, Amanwali is perfectly designed for an elegant, yet laidback, beachfront lifestyle. This spectacular property offers four levels of incredible living space, resting on 10,000 square feet and providing you and your guests with four, spacious bedrooms.
Offering comfort and luxury at every turn, the main living spaces at this spectacular home can be found on the top level, where you can enjoy breathtaking vistas of Whale Beach at every turn. The open plan living encompasses the living room, dining, and kitchen areas. Each space is outfitted with expansive windows, allowing natural light to flow in and drench the gleaming hardwood floors in a soft glow. The furnishings are casual in nature, yet carefully crafted and of an upscale design. The brightly colored sofas and pillows pop wonderfully against the pristine white of the walls, bringing vibrancy to an otherwise minimalistic style.
The focal point of the gourmet kitchen is the elongated, sleek center island, providing space to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee, a cool glass of wine, or extra space to help prepare dinner. The rest of the kitchen is outfitted with state of the art appliances and modern amenities to make cooking a breeze. An elegant, wooden dining table can be found just off the living room, offering a lovely spot for dinner and seating enough for ten. However, open up the wall-to-wall sliding door in the kitchen, and you’ll find a spacious timber terrace boasting gorgeous beachfront views. Turn this area into your own private oasis, enjoying meals in the crisp sea breeze, or sipping on a delicious cocktail on one of the lavish outdoor sofas as you delight in the gorgeous sunset colors over the Pacific Ocean, or in counting the migrating humpback whales on their way to the northern breeding grounds in autumn. In the spring, you may witness whale migrations back to the cool waters of their home in the Southern ocean.
This property offers four spectacular bedrooms, each outfitted in high-quality furnishings that create a polished, soothing space to retreat for the night. The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed and features a lovely, contemporarily designed bathroom, complete with a large, walk-in shower and luxurious soaking tub. The master suite also enjoys direct access to the deck. Each of the other three bedrooms offers queen-sized beds, and all bedrooms can be located on the second level of the home.
During your days at Amanwali, lounge the hours away by the gorgeous pool, nestled amongst lush, green gardens, and offering plenty of poolside seating. The white sandy beaches of Whale Beach are close by, providing the perfect spot for a day of splashing in the waves and basking in the sun. Enjoy a plethora of watersports, such as kayaking, fishing, and so much more! Delicious restaurants can be found around every corner, offering up scrumptious seafood and local dishes. Sydney is just an hour away, the perfect distance for a day trip!
Enjoy a slice of heaven at the one and only Amanwali!

Exceptional home and an architectural masterpiece.
Stayed October 2018. Family of 5. From the very moment of arrival we knew we had found one of those Thirdhome gems that go in the category of standouts. Ian the owner was there to meet us and what a most gracious and humble host. It took some coaxing to discover that he also designed this home and what an incredible piece of architecture it is. Four levels - access / garage at the base, games room on the first, bedrooms on the 2nd and the top floor an incredible open plan combination of kichen / living / dining with stunning panoramic view of the ocean out front. Private balconies front and back along with a pool are seamlessly integarted ensuring this was going to be a most memorable Thirdhome vacation ! We saw migrating whales making their way south ! We loved the Whale Beach Deli 100 yards down the road and Boat House in Palm Beach. We also took a couple trips into Sydney by parking in Manly and taking the ferry. (Manly is about a 30-40 minutes drive). Pizzas from Cranzgots were exceptional 5 mimutes away and fine dining at Jonah’s out of this world - (need to book well in advance prior to your arrival). We didn’t have the greatest weather during our week, but we had no complaint about that as we just loved staying in and lazing around the house with kids largely swimming in the pool (which is heated), reading and playing table tennis. We also managed some time on the beach just a 5 minute stroll from the house between the showers. A car is required to get around, and some nice boutique shops / supermarket etc 5 minutes down the road in Avalon. All in all our family gave this home a 5*++ for host / relaxation / facilities / comfort / cleanliness and design. Thanks Ian - Alistair Tod & family.”
FElt very welcome in this gorgeous house....
Ian helped us to feel very welcome in his beautiful property. We loved the area and hope to stay in Whale Beach again one day. Really appreciated the thoughtful touches and this was the most positive Third Home experience that we have had. Stunning house with amazing attention to detail and the highest quality style and details. Loved the beach, the ocean pool and the boathouse cafes are a big plus. Thanks so much for sharing your home Ian and family..... Shannon and Steve”
A stunning property!
An absolutely incredible property that I couldn't recommend higher! Whale beach is in a beautiful part of Australia and this iconic property and exceptional host make this an absolute dream!”
The stay was fantastic - the house and location are excellent. Whale beach is a real gem away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to any services you need. Ian was a perfect host and looked after everything for us.”
Luxury at the Beach
Amanwali is a stunning house. It has been designed and built with incredible attention to detail and furnished with great taste. The view of Whale Beach and the ocean is panoramic and it is located in one of Sydney's most sought-after suburbs. Ian the owner welcomed us himself and gave us a tour of the house to explain its many attractions and to answer any questions we had. He checked the next morning to confirm that everything was as it should be. Our stay was punctuated by a spectacularly intense electrical storm followed by rainfall of biblical intensity. Amanwali remained the highlight of our week. I would give it six stars if I could.”
