Find a quality accommodation in Avoca Beach during your holiday or getaway...
Below are top-rated family-friendly places to stay and luxury bed and breakfasts in the leafy hinterland.
Avoca Beach is very popular with holidaymakers during the summer holidays. The population swells, as well as the price of accommodation and the minimum number of days you may be required to book.
With this in mind it's always better to book your accommodation in Avoca as early as possible.
You won't go wrong with any of the places listed below. They're highly-rated by visitors.
Would you like to stroll to the beach, cafes and restaurants? Gaze at the ocean in the distance from your balcony?
Avoca Palm Resort offers serviced apartments metres away from everything.
The 4-Bedroom Penthouse and 3-Bedroom Ocean View have a balcony that overlooks the ocean and the lake.
The apartments vary between two and four bedrooms.
They're perfect for families... fully equipped kitchens, washing machines and dryers, spa bath.
The complex has a heated pool with a barbecue area and a spa, a sauna, a games room with pool and ping pong, and a gym.
Avoca Palm Resort is located a few metres from most restaurants and cafes, the beach and the lake.
Just across the road are Heazlett park where you can kick the ball, a small playground, a tennis court, and Aquafun where you can hire kayaks, pedal-boats and stand up paddle boards (we've hired them a few times and it's a lot of fun for the kids).
Avoca Palm Resort is without doubt situated in one of the most if not the most convenient spot in town (the other highly convenient location is near the rockpool and the patrolled area of the beach).
Tip: the high number of stairs may be difficult for elderly people or parents carrying a pram. The rooms on the bottom level have fewer stairs.

Why stay close to the beach among a horde of tourists when you can stay in a quiet leafy setting away from the crowd?
Why stay enclosed between four walls like in a hotel or apartment when you can have more freedom and an outdoor lifestyle, such as what a caravan park can offer?
The Palms at Avoca is a caravan park (not sure if 'caravan park' is the best way to describe it) with lovely cabins and a limited number of powered sites (no camping I'm afraid).
The caravan park is situated within the residential area so the only traffic around is from the locals. It's away from the mass of visitors who swarm the beachfront area during summer.
At the Palms you can swim in the resort pools, relax in the spa, let the kids play outdoors or scooter around while you hang out on your balcony.
There are two swimming pools and one wading pool for toddlers, a spa, barbecue facilities, a playground, and a games room with a pool table. You can also get a massage.
The Palms at Avoca is located a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk to the beach and restaurants.
If the extra distance from the beach is not a drawback for you, this may well be the perfect place to stay with kids.
Choose between a 4 Berth Villa, a 6 Berth Villa, a Cabana, or Le Chateau (means The Castle - adults only).
Cabanas are a top choice if you have children because they're located closest to the pools.

This bed and breakfast is located on five acres in a serene, quiet, leafy area in Picketts Valley... a location many locals I know envy because of the semi-rural beauty. Who doesn't secretly wish they lived in Picketts Valley?
This is only matched by wonderful hosts Marisa and Rick.
At the Acreage Luxury B&B and Guesthouse you get valley outlooks from the balcony and wake up to the song of bellbirds... and to the sight of alpacas.
The bed and breakfast is located a few minutes' drive to the beach – but Picketts Valley has a completely different feel from the tourist beachside location. It's like staying in the country.
Inclusions comprise continental breakfasts and sparking wine & chocolates.
Features include a private ensuite and spa bath, barbecue facilities, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool, a guest kitchen, a private entry, and wifi.
