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

This is the best place to stay. We love the position close to Manly and its famous Ferry to Sydney. Because we love the water and travel in this stupendous bay, its perfect. The view of the opera house are best from the water and the Manly Ferry takes you right past it. Also the best pictures ive ever take... More

On a fleeting visit to Sydney for a 2 day work shop I was very happy to return to Jacaranda BnB at Balgowlah to which I was familiar with. Exceptionally clean, comfortable and conveniently located. A quick walk to Sydney Road and an express bus into the city saw me where I needed to be in a heartbeat. Alison and... More
