“Small but perfectly formed. The ideal size for a holiday stay. 5*”

My Wife and I [visiting from the UK] stayed in the apartment after spending a week with our son nearby. Kirsti was brilliant keeping us updated prior to our trip and meeting us at the apartment at the agreed time. We were also allowed to leave later in the day a week later as our flight wasn’t until late in the afternoon.

The apartment is clean and nicely done to a very good standard. It is the perfect size with a comfy bed, air conditioning [which isn’t noisy], a small kitchen with worktop, toaster and everything you would need if you wanted to cook as well as having a nice sized bathroom. Kirsti also provided everything you would need from; tea and coffee, spare toiletries, bin bags, washing up liquid, laundry liquid – I could go on. There were even beach towels and a parasol for us to use. Absolutely perfect.

The apartment is in a secure building requiring swipe access to get in and also to use the lift going up. Location wise; it’s a two-minute walk to the beach and the same to the ferry. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, not too close, with a nice bakery around the corner and shops for food and goods.

There is a roof-top pool [small] and a jacuzzi plus a small gym which, although I didn't use it, seemed to have all you would need to maintain your fitness on holiday. We did use the pool though and the area it is located in to relax in the afternoon, totally undisturbed. We also used the laundry room which was ideal as well for a quick catch up on washing.

Location-wise it is perfect to visit surrounding towns using the bus service which, when we went, seemed to run like clockwork and to use the ferry to cross to Sydney itself.

Would we use the apartment again? For sure!

I really loved my stay in Kirstis apartment. Location can´t be better, it´s a very short walk away from Corso and all those beautiful beaches in Manly, but still the flat is peaceful.
The flat was remarkably tidy and very comfortable. There is everything you need during your stay.
Kirsti takes care of you and everything else very exceptional smoothly and friendly way. And you can be sure that whatever you need to ask, she knows the answer. Manly is my favorited beach in Sydney and Kirstis apartment is very, very good palace at stay in Manly!

“Waterside apartments Manly”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Clean, tidy, all on the level to the shops and ferry, very convenient for shops and the wharf and the beautiful beaches.. The air conditioning could have been more effective - but that was a minor problem.

“Fantastic location in beautiful Manly”

This small studio is perfect for anyone wanting to make the most out of their Manly holiday. Me and my husband just came back from a 1-month long stay at Manly Nook and we had a wonderful time! The studio is small, but has all the essentials - even detergent! There is also a shared laundry room on the same floor, remember to save up on those $1 coins before using it as it's the only coin the machines will accept. Really convenient to have that service though, it helps when staying for longer periods.

Furthermore, Kirsti is a wonderful landlady and made everything super smooth for us. Everything from check in to check out just worked flawlessly and I strongly recommend this studio for anyone looking for a small place to stay in the middle of Manly - just a few minutes to the beach and everything else Manly has to offer!

Liked best: The location and how Kirsti had thought of all the small things, like leaving milk in the fridge for us on arrival.
Liked least: The common areas in the apartment complex could use a bit of freshening up.

“very convenient”
Reviewed March 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Manly is an ideal place if you want to go to the beach, walk and be near of Sydney.
The flat is near the mian street of Manly, the Coso, and about 5 minutes from the Ferry.
Full of restaurantas and shops whithin 2 to 4 blocks.
Recommneded if you go to that place to do nothing and relax.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Appartmen on the third floor was casual and ok. Not too fancy but cosy.
The fifth floor appartment was nice and modern. The balcony was great when the weather was good. When taking the shower, water run easily everywhere. More cover or longer shower wall / shower curtain would have been optional.
The room was perfect for two adults and one child.
Location of the building was excellent.
