The space
WELCOME TO THE BLACK ACE!

THE BLACK ACE is a fully restored 110 year old cottage in the heart of Yamba Village, a beach town on the east coast of Australia. The north facing aspect of the home soaks up all the Norfolk pines that the area is famous for and the location just makes holidays for all ages so easy. All cafes, restaurants, at your doorstep and 7 beaches to choose from no matter what the wind is doing, with 4 of them being in walking distance and the others just a 8 minute drive to the the beautiful little town of Angourie.

The grounds of the home are fully fenced with an oversized deck joining the main house to the detached Bunk/games room. The oversized outdoor furniture & layout makes for easy outdoor barefoot living. Grab some prawns and a bottle of rose from just 30metres away and come back and enjoy them in the sunshine on the deck.

The considered curation and lightness of the interior in the main house keep the holidays easy living. There is a fireplace for cozy winter nights, and a reverse cycle Air conditioning unit for the long hot summers where you can play all morning at the beach and then retreat to an icy cold house for an indulgent afternoon day time.

The main house bedding situation consists of 3 bedrooms.
1 x supersize bedroom consisting of 1 queen bed with underbed storage and 2 single beds and a charming brand new ensuite. This room also features a 55" Smart TV again with all the entertainment apps ready to go and a reverse cycle air conditioning unit and overhead fan.
2 x cosy but light and bright queen size bedrooms with under bed storage & overhead fans

All bedrooms have black out blinds for slow mornings and all beds have brand new French linen bedding by Carlotta and Gee.

The Main house has 1 new and modern Bathroom with a seperate Toilet. Plus, In a detached Bathroom/ Laundry there is another private toilet with a hot outdoor shower. Perfect for the guests staying out in the detached Bunk house.


The Main Living area has 3 hang spaces, the dining area seats 8 people, kitchen bench seating for 3, the fireplace features hand painted and hand fired mexican tiles, a leather lounge and butterfly chairs to get you nice and comfy. Then there's the TV area which features a 55” Smart TV with all the entertainment and live tv. THE BLACK ACE is equipt with SONOS - a wireless sound system throughout the house, games room & outdoor area. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of plates, cutlery, smeg drip coffee machine, pots, pans, blender, gas oven/stove, water filter, huge fridge/freezer, everything you need to feed the family over your break.

The location is definitely something to mention again. We are right next door to the quaint Yamba cinema (part of the quaintness is the fact that you can sometimes hear the movies from the house.) The incredible beaches, great cafes & restaurants, parks, the Iconic 'Pacific Hotel', the skate park, bowling, mini golf & indoor rock climbing, all just right there for you to walk too. Making holidaying with a larger group just too easy. Walk everywhere! There's parking in the driveway for 2 and other cars can be parked on our property next door also.

2 x Double beds
2 x Single beds
Plus, a pool table that converts to a ping pong table, a dartboard, a huge 65” Smart TV with all the entertainment apps connected and ready to go, Foxtel, Netflix, Apple TV, Stan, etc. There's plenty of storage too including surfboard storage. And ofcourse air conditioning!

All beds are made up with high quality linen bedding and bath and beach towels are proved for all our guests.

Out of respect to our neighbours we don't allow Parties or events. If you have a small event, that wouldn't be disruptive to the area, then we are always happy to talk.

We are fully fenced so we are happy to talk about your furry family member staying as well. We just ask they stay off the furniture and their business is cleaned up upon check out.

Where you’ll be

Yamba, New South Wales, Australia

Grab a morning coffee next door at Beachwood then take a walk up to the Lighthouse. The walk around the cliff over to Turners beach to beautiful and and unbelievable way to start your day. You can jump off the rocks if the tide is right and you will more than likely swim with the dolphins. Or stay perched with your coffee on the rocks and watch the marine life play.

'The Kiosk' at Main Beach is a gorgeous place to have a casual breakfast with the sun coming up. Unfortunately it's only open Friday to Sunday 7am to 12pm. Hanging by the Beach pool at Main Beach is one of our favourite things to do. It's got European vacation vibes down there with people laying around on the rocks and diving in and out of the pool. All are a short walk from The Black Ace and a great way to start your day.

Back from the beach, slip straight into a mediterranean brunch at Beechwood which is right next door. Find a sunny little table soak up the European vibes with Sevtap and her amazing food.

Karrakin is a phenomenal restaurant in the village and the food and drinks are unbelievable. They only work with seasonal and local produce and change the menu up accordingly. So it's always a nice surprise to see what they will be cooking up for you that night. Like most places in Yamba except a few, they are only open Thursday to Saturday, but it's worth the wait and don't forget to book.

Paradiso at the top of the high street hill is also one of our favourites for dinner. They serve modern Asian and also have a great little cocktail bar next door you can visit before you sit down.

Other dinner options are The Italian & Burger spot at the top of the hill. Or The Mexican in the Village. Or you can head out to Angourie for an amazing dinner at Barbaresco, authentic Italian food and amazing wines.

If you want something more casual for dinner but still amazing the pizzas at Drift are great, they have beautiful selection of natural wines too. Eat in or takeaway, either way is great. Sassfras pizza are great for a quick dinner for the kids. Next door to The Black Ace is Payu Thai, an institution in Yamba. You can eat in or takeaway. YumYum's Angourie is now in the village and is a great breakfast and lunch option, they too use a selection of local and seasonal produce.

All restaurants you should book in advance. Nights open and seated numbers are limited so get in early!

Beaches
Yamba is surrounded by beaches and waterways. So no matter what the wind is doing you will find a gorgeous spot to swim, surf or have an all day beach hang.

All in walking distance from THE BLACK ACE is:

Main Beach
Convent Beach and walk around Lovers point and you'll come across Pippis.
Pippis beach in the corner and is great for a huge walk all the way to Angourie.
Turners Beach
Whitings beach is a no wave beach - great for the little ones.

A short drive out to Angourie you'll find:
Spookys Beach
Back Beach
