As I have to travel to North Shore regularly for health specialist appointments, I relied on accommodation reviews, and everything good previously written is true. Jacaranda B & B is extremely comfortable, clean and QUIET. Situated at end of cul de sac with easy street parking and with the added bonus of a golf course one house block away if... More

Thank you very much for your lovely accommodation, warm welcome, great communication and attention to detail. The accommodation is very clean and much larger than similar priced B&B's in the area. The street the accommodation is in, is in a lovely, family-friendly, very quiet cul-de-sac.

Our 28 day stay in Jacaranda B&B was our most enjoyable.very clean, and in a most beautiful setting. Very tranquil, but not far to the shopping mall, only 10 minutes walk. a free bus from the mall, that took us to Manley to catch the ferry to the city. The golf course 10 minutes walk to the club house. Personal... More

We spent 3 comfortable nights at Jacaranda B&B. It certainly is a home away from home. The wonderful hosts, Alison and Ernie, thought of everything that a guest/s could possibly need and more. They are perfectionists who appreciate and have a taste for the finer things in life. A lovely home, neat as a pin, cosy separate guest accommodation nestled... More

We spent a week here while the owners were away. We were given instructions on the Internet and everything was perfect. Our continental breakfasts were left for us in the fridge , our bed made up and fresh flowers were in every room. The garden was glorious and the Bar bQ handy for cooking our supper one evening..

We were delighted with the accommodation, the location and particularly our hosts who were always there but yet never intruded on our space. Nice touches like closing the blinds and switching on a light if we were not home by sunset made us feel so welcome. Tons of cupboard space was a great bonus. This is a place I would... More

This has to be the best B&B for a weekend getaway or short trip for two. Superb in every way! Great friendly hosts who have an elegant and charming home. I love how clean and beautiful it is. You won't be disappointed!

Very nice stay from the first to the last day with very helpful and friendly hosts. The BnB is located in a quiet road, so you don't hear any road noises at all. Nevertheless it's just a 10 min bus drive to Manly with its beaches or a 30 min walk across the coastline. Also plenty of restaurants around. A... More

Lovely, nice bright & sunny, clean B & B. Very convenient location, close to Manly Beach, handy to shopping centre. Would definitely stay again, and would highly recommend it to others. Quiet, enjoyed not being in a motel with noisy people in the halls etc. Was really great having a washer & dryer in the area.

Once more when visiting Sydney,we stayed at Jacaranda BnB. The hosts, Ali and Ernie, are so welcoming yet very conscious of your privacy. Here in this quiet cul-de-sac, so close to a golf course you can wake to the sounds of birds, breakfast, then decide to catch a bus to all the sights of Sydney town or go to Manly... More
