Cruise Letter: Breezing Into February
JANUARY FLASHED BEFORE OUR EYES

February is no exception. We are just starting to ramp up for the year. Hold onto your bucket hats; things are about to get saucy.

If you’re currently staying with us or are planning to… make sure to check out our Facebook Housemates Group! We post updates on daily events and what’s happening in the Beach House so everyone can get involved. Plus it’s a great way to meet your housemates, as well as keep in touch once you’ve left! Not that you’ll ever want to leave.
WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED IN JANUARY
While most of us are still hungover from Silly Szn and can’t remember much of January tbh, the sun was out, the vibes were lit, and we had a bloody good time meeting you all.
We had some Australia Day events planned to boost some Aussie spirit. There was an Aussie Day-themed Pub Crawl, which was a big hit, followed by an Aussie Day Sausage Sizzle BBQ. There’s nothing more classic than a sausage sanga with caramelised onions (aka burnt to a crisp) and tomato sauce to enjoy with a cold beer.
What’s coming up next…
The years only just getting started! Start planning that Sydney getaway and pin Manly Beach to your radar. Our lineup of events is about to get your frothing. You won’t want to miss this!!
