The Grande Chalet is one of our exclusive and luxurious 5-star houses on offer. You will have access to a complete 4 bedroom home featuring ducted air conditioning, high quality linen, an outdoor living area and high speed Wi-Fi, Foxtel & Netflix on tap.
We are centrally located within the heart of Newcastle, having the vibrant shops and cafés of Darby St, beautiful parks and playgrounds, and several of Newcastle’s golden beaches within a short walking distance.

The space
Cooks Hill Chalets is a French-Provincial style house combining modern and classic style furniture and artwork from all around the world.
There is plenty of space to relax with a large timber King bed in the spacious master bedroom, 2 single beds in the second bedroom, and one single bed in the third bedroom. The fourth bedroom offers a luxurious queen bed for a second couple, with all beds furnished with 1200 thread count linen. We can offer a double Aerobed which is set up in the master bedroom for the 8th guest if required.

Sink into the plush leather lounge to enjoy your favourite DVD on the large 65-inch screen TV with surround sound, or catch up on world news and sport via Foxtel or Netflix. A second 37-inch TV is located in the master bedroom so you can lie down and relax wherever you feel.

Recent renovations have added a second bathroom with walk-in shower. With two full bathrooms and a third toilet, getting ready for a night out or a wedding has never been easier.

You’ll love coming home from a long day at the beach and washing off in our outdoor hot & cold shower, and even using our fully equipped laundry which makes those long stays that little bit easier.
We will supply a high chair and baby cot upon request to make travels with those little ones stress free and enjoyable.

The Grande Chalet offers not just a place to sleep, but a total holiday destination which travellers of all ages will find hard to go past.

Where you’ll be

Cooks Hill, New South Wales, Australia

Living on the same suburb as the Grande Chalet for over 24 years, I can honestly say the area is without equal. Cooks Hill is a heritage area, and the surrounding streets offer a wealth of restaurants, boutique shopping, health and beauty options, together with cultural choices for even the most discerning traveller. 
The home is centrally located at 50 Dawson St, Cooks Hill. 
Walk on flat ground to the beach or the harbour foreshore, shop at world class boutiques, then enjoy dinner and Hunter Valley wines or beers at a local restaurant. Life doesn't get much better than that!

Great Coffee 
Little place on the corner of Corlette and Bull St called "Welsh Blacks", literally two block from the Chalet. (I leave several maps at the property and would be happy to give you some guidance after you arrive). Otherwise, anywhere on Darby St sells good coffee, including "Glee Coffee Roasters" or Goldbergs.

Great Food/Atmosphere (open early to late)
"Goldbergs" hands down. Like a European cafe, great atmosphere and food. 
Also, there is a great chocolate restaurant called Coco Monde on Darby St.
For smoothies to die for (including Mars Bar, Cookies and Cream and other weird flavours), try "The Three Monkeys" on Darby St.

Grocery Shopping
Marketown shopping centre is only 900m away, containing Coles, Woolworths, Big W, Dick Smith, Officeworks and lots of little shops as well.

Boutique Shopping
There are many small boutique and designer shops along Darby St, with Jean Bas, HoneyBee goods and Carla Swimwear to name a few.

Larger Shopping Centres
Westfield Kotara (David Jones and a huge number of other stores) and also Charlestown Square (Main store is Myer. Also has the Reading Cinemas)

Cinemas
Rather than drive to Charlestown Square, you can walk to the Greater Union Cinemas in King St, about a 10 minute walk away.

Walking
Check out the new "Anzac Walk" which runs up the cliff from Bar Beach to a lookout, beside Memorial Drive. For the more adventurous, the Glenrock Reserve, only 5km away, offers long walking tracks with beautiful scenery and animals. 

Art Galleries & Museums
Take a short walk to the Newcastle Regional Art Gallery, Cooks Hill Galleriesor John Earle Gallery, all within a 1km radius of the chalet. Take a walk to the harbour-side suburb of honeysuckle to visit Newcastle Museum or Newcastle Maritime Museum.

Hunter Valley
Take a wine tasting tour featuring delicious fine wines at the Hunter Valley winery, only a 45 minute drive away.

Originally from Sydney, I now live in Cooks Hill, and work one suburb away.

During your stay

Living around the corner from the property, I am fully available 24 hours a day for any issues that may arise. We are happy to offer early check-in and late check-out if there are no other guests leaving or arriving on the same day. We provide keys via a lock-box on the property itself, so there is no waiting around for someone to arrive to let you in, or having to go to an office to collect keys.
If you need anything else, I can be contacted by phone.
