My wife, two teenage daughters and I spent a wonderful week at Ocean Views with our hosts Toni and Victor and their two sons over Christmas, 2017. Toni and Victor and their family could not have made us feel more welcome. The room that we stayed in is very large and can be divided in two for privacy. The room walks out onto a patio with stunning views of the Northern Beaches from the highest point on Beacon Hill. There are flat screen TVs (although why you would watch TV when you are in Sydney eludes me), WiFi and air conditioning. The beaches are a short drive or bicycle ride down the hill and taxis are available to help you come back up the hill! The bus stop which will take you to Sydney, Manly and beyond is approximately 200 metres away.
The accommodations are very pleasing. Our bed was very comfortable while two single beds can be set up for additional guests/children. The back garden has lawn chairs with spectacular views and a trampoline. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which makes all those trips to the beach more manageable. You also have a private entrance and exit so you do not need to go through the main house.
Toni and Victor have been living in Sydney for many years and have the best suggestions for restaurants, fantastic hikes and sights to see. All members of the family can also play a mean game of table tennis.
All in all we had a wonderful stay and will be back again as soon as we can!
Beautiful and convient apartment. Easy acces by bus from the manly wharf. The hosts are super friendly and make you feel at home. Great stay!
We stayed at the apartment after arrival in Australia. We can fully recommend the apartment: it is very nice in the green, well located if you prefer a bit outside of Sydney, excellent public transport available, short distances to Sydney centre, Manly, northern beaches, etc. And the best are the fabolous house lords, which did some advance shopping for our arrival, gave us useful tips and are very friendly. We stayed there with a 10 month old baby and the accommodation is totally suitable for this case. Many thanks and all the best!
When we booked this relatively small part of the house of Victor and Toni we were a little bit concerned about the possibility of the apartment not providing enough space and comfort for our family of 4, for 1.5 months (we stayed with both parents and two kids of 18 and 10 years old). However, the experience we had in this charming and very well positioned house, with a nice view of the ocean and lots of solar light, provided a calm atmosphere, and excellent conditions for long family moments. Since we arrived back in Portugal, we have remembered several times the excellent moments we had in this very charming space. Thanks to Victor and Toni, who provided a good equilibrium of privacy and friendship.

We enjoyed our stay last time so much that could not resist staying again to be able to enjoy view of the ocean and a big starry night sky. Fantastic for Family with kid’s large backyard with lots to do for kids like trampoline, swing, hammock, Basketball and spa in the backyard.
Thank you so much Toni and Victor, You always make us feel very welcome. This time again we really enjoyed our stay and highly recommends to other families.
We loved our stay at Toni and Victor's place. They were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The house is lovely and lots for our 2 year old daughter to play with! Would definitely recommend it and hopefully we will be back in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the situation is great with only a short distance to the beach, shops and mall. Sitting out on the terrace for meals with the ocean view is wonderful. The owners are lovely, friendly and very helpful.
