Manly, Greater Sydney, New South Wales
(Our house was leased for almost two years, which is why our reviews are not current. However, the same warmth and hospitality is promised!

An extremely comfortable bright and airy Sydney home located just a few minutes drive from the beautiful beaches of Manly. The home is an elevated position with leafy views over the district bringing wonderful bird life right to our doors.

What a great house. I stayed with my family over the new year here - it's a great location to explore Sydney and 10 minute drive to Manly. Christine and Ray gave us a very warm welcome, the house was clean and tidy and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. They also advised us on the best beaches...

Fabulous place to stay. Had all the facilities we could have hoped for and all the bells and whistles too. Very well presented. Three floors so plenty of space for the 6 of us.
