Cruise Letter: The December Silly SZN
The Ultimate Summer Line Up
It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for… YES, tis the silly season. It’s arrived! Stoke Beach House has a fully locked and loaded schedule of fun shenanigans this December for you to get down and dirty. Who needs family time with that creepy uncle, gran always yelling, “what! I can’t hear you”, and the parents drinking too much and telling you how much they love you while yelling at each other about burning something?
Instead, kick back like a rock star, drink like a sailor and shake a tail feather at one of our killer parties. We can’t wait to see all of you legends and party lovers there!
Xmas Movie Night – 20th December
We kick off the silly szn in style with a screening of ‘Elf’ in the Stoke Beach House lay-down cinema room from 8pm. Fresh popcorn will be flowing, and comfy cushions and bean bags at the ready. BYO cuddle buddies.
Take it easy; we’ve got some banger nights ahead of you!
Santa Pub Crawl – 22nd December
Time to whip out those sexy Santa hats and naughty elf outfits cus we’re throwing an epic Santa Pub Crawl across Manly. The drinks will be flowing, the music pumping and your housemates will be ready to cut loose. You’ll never look at Santa the same way again.

Beer Pong and Bar Night – 23rd December

Chrismas Eve Pot Luck and Party – 24th December
It may not be the most traditional Xmas, but we’ll make sure you’ll have a bangin’ time. While you may usually spend this time with the fam, we like to do things differently in Oz. Christmas Eve is all about celebrating the festive season with your mates before being stuck next to aunty Shaz at the family lunch.
Team up with your housemates to bring a traditional homeland dish to our Christmas Eve Pot Luck Dinner. The Stoke Crew will be carving up delicious smoked ham and roast potatoes, with two types of Sangria available at the Stoke Bar.
Before the food coma kicks in, the DJ will turn up the beats and get the dancefloor pumping. Grab that special someone and yank them under the mistle toes for a cheeky kiss.
Chill Beach Day – 25th December
With a hangover in toe, drag your sorry-for-yourself butt to breaky before hitting the surf for a refreshing dip and veg out in the sunshine. If you’re trying to distract yourself from your thumping head, find the Stoke Crew hosting beach games just down the road at Manly Beach.
Keep an eye out for the Manly Sant Hat surfers! It’s an age-old tradition where the locals hit the surf with their fave Xmas hats and test out their new boards.
Boxing Day Float Day – 26th December
It’s our favourite time of the year!! The annual Stoke Float is a killer day with all housemates encouraged to grab any kind of float you can get your hands on… doughnut, flamingo, pool ring, surfboard, balloon and enjoy the day floating off Shelly Beach.
Don’t forget your sunscreen and hat. This day turns into a lobster fest as night falls.
Movie Night – 27th December
We’re giving your liver a chance to recover; you’ll need your stamina as the New Year festivities kick off this week. Join us in the Stoke Beach House lay-down cinema room from 8pm. Fresh popcorn will be flowing, and comfy cushions and bean bags at the ready. BYO cuddle buddies.
The Stoke Crew take movie night requests, hit up one of the team if they’re is something you’re dying to watch!
Pub Crawl – 29th December
Each week our trusty guide, Jake, gathers your sexy new housemates and remaining faves for a Stoke Housemate tour of Manly’s best pubs. From Donny’s, Manly’s very own NY-style loft bar, to the classic old dingy pub with sticky carpet floors. Whether you hit it up last week or this is the very first one, you’re guaranteed a good ol’ time. Maybe even a few cheap drinks. Meet in the Stoke Bar at happy hour!
