“Location, Location, Location!”
Reviewed November 28, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Kirsti is an excellent owner who went out of her way from start to finish to make sure that we had everything we needed. She is friendly and exceptionally responsive to emails/texts/calls.
The location is perfect and only 2-3 mins walk basically from anything you may need in Manly, including the beach, the corso (many lovely shops, bars and restaurants) and the wharf/ferries.
This apartment is designed for 2 people, (can take upto 3) but bear in mind this is classed as a 'studio' apartment, which is perfectly comfortable for 3 people, if you don't mind all sleeping in one room. It is fully equipped and Kirsti was kind enough to supply some basic groceries for our arrival. The apartment itself could benefit from some attention, as could the air conditioning, which is a little noisy but perfectly efficient. However, I'm sure the cost is reflected in this.
The block of flats is surprisingly quiet, with a wonderful top floor, which includes a gym (for those inclined!) but more importantly, an outside seating area with a perfectly cooling plunge pool & jacuzzi, for the cooler day.
I highly recommend this apartment. You will not be disappointed in it, or Manly itself.

“Looking no further than Manlynook”

If you would like to stay in Manly with friends or couple, I certainly recommend this property. The location is the best just minutes walk to the beach and Corso. Cleanliness and facilities of the room and the building are second to none.

“Great location shame about the noise”

The location could not be faulted 5 minutes walk to beach and whalf. Only trouble was the noise. Refused collection lorries came between 5-6 am every morning and parked right under the apartment window and it sounded like they collected glass every day. There were then often another two turned up before 8am. When the apartment next door used the toilet it was as if some one had turned the taps full on in our apartment

Thank you for taking up your time to do the review. Most of our guests do love the location of the
apartment (as you mentioned as well) being right in the middle of
Manly. I am so sorry to hear about the noise
you suffered from during your stay. The Short Street Plaza project has caused some
inconvenience/noise/extra traffic (trucks) with the demolition of old pavement etc (and
some work having to have carried out at early hours of the morning).
There may have been some irregularities with the council garbage collection throughout the project.
The Manly council has finally finished it and the front of the building does look so much better now with the seats at the plaza as well
as some plants, etc. I can assure you that the council pick ups are back to normal schedule.
As for the bathroom noise, I do apologise for that as well. Unfortunately it is part of living in the block of apartments
that sometimes insulation is not as good as one would wish for. I must say though that more than 50% of the building
is owner occupied and it is seen as one of the more quiet buildings in the area ( and Manly centre is a busy area
as there are residents as well as couple of millions of
tourists that visit Manly every year being one of the top destinations in Sydney/Australia). Sometimes expectations
maybe different by different guests as if one is used to living in a house rather than block of apartments, or if one is used
to living in countryside or small town instead of in the City.What somebody may find noisy, another one may
take it just as it is for being "right in the middle of it all"!
Thanks again for your time and feedback. Best, Kirsti
