The apartment is beautiful and in a great spot right across from Manly surf club, the beach and just a short walk to the Corso. Helen the owner is charming and funny and really helpful but not intrusive at all! Loved the little things she does like chocolates on the pillow and Tim Tam's! We'd definitely stay here again and...

Graham and Paula, you are STILL making me laarrrff. I sooo enjoyed having you as fabulous guests who got out and about and enjoyed every minute of my fabulous Manly. I am actually opposite North Steyne Surf Club which is heritage listed and a beautiful building, unlike a lot of the others which are having major renovations. PLEASE COME BACK... More

Ok, not only was the place beautiful and Helen an excellent hostess, the location was perfect! It was right across from Manly Beach, just above a great coffee shop, and just a few blocks away from the Corso where there is plenty of shopping and great restaurants. At the end of the Corso is the ferry buildings and a bus... More

What a great place to stay. Helen is just lovely, and the place is fabulous. So much nicer than a hotel room, enjoyed her home like it was ours. Will definitely come back and stay again, she makes you feel like long-lost friends. Gorgeous room, and beautiful touches. Thank you Helen :)

From the start, we were welcomed and the children felt right at home. The location is prime and so accessible to beach, Manly attractions and the ferry service to Sydney CBD. The apartment is light, bright, extremely comfortable and the views to the Pacific are stunning. Having the whales in winter migration added to the occasion, along with the perfect... More

The location is perfect. The room is well presented and light. The bathroom is impeccable and there are nice touches such as special soaps and essences. The host was polite and helpful and made us feel welcome without intruding.

Nicholas thank you very much for taking the time to review. I try to look after my guests in my own special way and disappear with my own life as much as possible. Sitting around the side in the winter sun even for me is special this time of the year and watching the many whales and dolphins is magic.... More
