Discover one of Australias best east coast destinations. Featured at the end of the Australia Tourism Campaign Where the Bloody Hell Are You, Fingal Bay clearly has that postcard appeal and its not hard to see why. Surrounded by National Parkland and with community in mind, Fingal Bay is very appealing to young families and retirees. Bombora Fingal Bay is ideal for guests visiting the bay for recreational holidays and sporting events with the Fingal Bay Surf Club approximately 400m from the front door and the Fingal Bay Sports & Rec Club just 650m from the duplex for travelling bowlers.

Walk from the lounge through the spacious fully equipped kitchen which includes stove top and under-bench oven, microwave, a full size fridge / freezer, dishwasher, breakfast bar with 4 stools and ample space to prepare family meals. The dining room is positioned adjacent to the kitchen where you will be able to dine with friends and family at the timber dining suite with 6x chairs or step through the sliding glass doors to a covered alfresco dining area with 6x piece timber outdoor setting, rear pergola with gas BBQ. The master bedroom and ensuite are also positioned on the ground level and offer a queen size bed, side tables with reading lamps, ceiling fan, build-in robe and bathroom with glass shower, vanity and toilet.

UPSTAIRS LEVEL: There are 2 bedrooms upstairs both with 2x single beds,side table and built-in robe. There is a covered balcony to sit and relax with a good book soaking up the sun and the cool sea breezes. The main bathroom comes with a standard size bath, glass shower, vanity and toilet.

There is a single lock-up garage for your vehicle, surf boards and kids bikes with a second space available on the driveway for your trailer boat or jet skis. Garage Dimensions: Depth-5.6m, Height-2.1m.

There are many aspects to this patrolled surf beach including: Kiddies Corner (approx. 800m walk) which is ideal for small children to swim and play, a boat ramp to launch your vessel, not to mention the white sandy beach which leads up past the surf life-saving club through to the famous Fingal Spit. The spit can be crossed at low tide (with caution) to view the ruins of the outer lighthouse residence which is located on the far-east side of Fingal Island. The foreshore offers a childrens playground with flying fox plus FREE BBQ and picnic facilities. Take a walk to Barry Park (approx. 1km walk) between mid-May and mid-November to spot humpback whales as they migrate up and down the east coast, snorkel at low tide around the many rock pools or cast a line off the beach. Surrounded by National Parkland there are many bush tracks, flora and fauna to discover including echidnas, kangaroos and koalas which can be seen sometimes along the tree-lined cycleway between Shoal Bay and Fingal Bay.

Do I need to show ID when collecting keys?

What is required when checking in?

You must also provide a valid credit card and driver’s license which will be sighted by a consultant for customer validation.


Please Note: Should you not have a valid credit card, then a cash security deposit is required. Cash deposits will vary depending on the property, with the minimum amount of $400.

What happens if I break something?

Accidents happen sometimes. It is best to let us know if this does occur. You are more likely to incur a charge for breakages or damages if we do not know about it. Upon your departure, an inspection will alert us to any damage or missing items. As per the guest registration form you have signed, such incidents are charged to the guest accordingly.

Why is the total price different to the "from" price?

Each property is displayed from the winter off season weekly tariff. Seasonal tariffs apply.

A clean fee and booking fee will be added to the tariff at the end of your booking showing the exact price for the requested dates.

NOTE: The Amarna Resort, Shoal Bay Beachclub Apartments and The Pines at Anna Bay offer overnight accommodation and are therefore displayed with a daily rate. Some properties may include cleaning fees in the tariff price and some are displayed separately.

Can I bring the family pet?

Most properties will not allow pets anywhere at the property. Guests wanting to bring their pet should select pet friendly at the time of their search, which will shortlist the properties available. There is a fee of $50 per pet per week, or part thereof, in Winning Holidays Pet Friendly Accommodation

Guests who bring pets to properties that do not allow for them could face immediate eviction without refund at the discretion of management.

Why is the property I booked for sale?

All holiday homes are individually and privately owned. Some properties at times will be for sale. In most cases when a sale occurs, the purchaser will continue to holiday let and honour bookings currently in the system, therefore most guests will not be disrupted.

On occasion when a sale occurs, the purchaser may ask for the property to be vacant at the time of settlement. In this situation, Winning Holidays would arrange alternate accommodation for you in a similar property, subject to availability.

Guests will receive notification the moment Winning Holidays are notified giving guests the option to:

  1. transfer to alternate accommodation, or
  2. request a full refund.
Can I book a property for a party or "schoolies"?

No, you cannot have a party. Winning Holidays adhere to the Holiday Code of Conduct respecting the local residents of the area. Our policy requires a maximum of adults in a particular dwelling to help reduce noise complaints, excess cars and disruption to the neighbouring properties. If a property accommodates more than eight people then the remaining guest numbers must be for children.

Any guest found to be hosting a party of any kind or over-crowding the property will be immediately evicted without refund.

Any booking found to be a "schoolies" booking will be be immediately cancelled and evicted without a refund, whether any other terms and conditions are breached or not.

Is my property air-conditioned?

Not all properties offer air conditioning. If air conditioning is important to your stay then please select air conditioning as a requirement when searching on the website.

What do I do if I have an After Hours emergency?

If the matter is life threatening, Dial 000.

The after-hours phone service is for emergencies only, for example total power failure, total water failure, lock-out or natural disaster damage. Please contact our office number on 4984 0100 and a message will be forwarded to the emergency services.

NOTE: If you lock yourself out you will be required to pay for a locksmith service call. This can be expensive!

 

Do I need to put out the garbage?

Yes. Collection days will be displayed in the Winning Holidays Compendium provided. Guests are responsible to place the red and yellow bins to the curb on collection day if this occurs during your stay. Bin collection will pertain to private homes or duplexes only, whereas unit blocks will have a strata set-up to take the bins out for you. The best indication is to check the street / neighbours who have put out their bins as you would at home.

Why does the TV have poor or no reception?

Reception can be affected from time to time due to the weather or distance from the telecommunications tower. Problems we saw in the old days have been significantly improved since the introduction of the digital signal.

Can I purchase extra cleaning?

If you would like to order mid-stay cleaning please contact Winning Holidays; Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm and Sat 9am to 4pm on (02) 4984 0100 to arrange a quote.
