We are regular Manly visitors and have always loved the places we’ve stayed but this particular place exceeded all expectations. Beautiful, compact and beaujeux but it worked. It is a tough benchmark to have as even as we are in the next place, we are comparing it. Kathy the hostess, couldn’t have been more helpful and the extra touches such as welcome groceries, tea bags, local expertise and toiletries. The location, facilities and cleanliness were second to none. Loved it and will definitely return. Thank you Kathy.
Other then a few minor remarks we can only say that this appartment (studio) offers very good value for it's price !
Fantastic location, as good as right in the middle of Manly.
Close to everything.
Good building facilities... small dippool, jaccuzzi, gym, garage, bike storage, 2 elevators, laundry facilities (on 3 floors),...
The appartment was (very) well equiped but could do with some minor modifications:
Please fix the safe to the cabinet floor !
Now any thief can still take the safe with him !
Some more pots and pans would also be welcome for guests like us who like to cook their own diner onc and a while. The pots and pans now available are barely enough for som emergency cooking, certainly not enough to prepare a proper dinner (by the way, the bottom of the large frying pan is deformed thus making it turningn around all the time en give's a bad frying result).
And althoug it is nice to have a BBQ on the terrace...but when it is not clean people will not use it... we for one didn't for that particular reason.
Also the drying rack was broke due to broken side bars (by rust). Should certainly be replaced.
Last but not least, when groups of people are using the entertainment deck right next tot the appartment (where you have the jaccuzzi, dippool,...) the noice of all those people talking and laughing together is rather disturbant late at night. We did ask a few times to quite down but when drinks come involved...
Hence our call to the building Manager who would talk to those people as the building regulations are quite clear on this subject: NO NOICE(S) after 09.30 PM.
Ultimately, dispite the above minor remarks...
STILL A FANTASTIC PLACE TO ENJOY YOUR STAY IN MANLY !
We will certainly go back !!!
Perfect location, exceptional host, everything we needed for our 8 days. Very comfortable unit, clean, well stocked with the basics in meal preparation, excellent balcony complete with gas BBQ. Studio with a hide-a-bed but it was very comfortable Shopping, restaurants and cafes very close, beaches as well. Short distance to wharf and thus ferry to Sydney. Host Kathy even offered to store some of our things while we did a tour out of town. Highly recommended.
I am often visiting manly for work and this has to be one of the nicest units around! The location is perfect, beach on the doorstep and so close to the wharf, making it easy to travel into the city too. Kathy was one of the nicest host's, with the local knowledge that cant be beaten! Im happy I will never have to look elsewhere for when I return!
Amazing location!! So central, near to all the cool bars and restaurants, but still tucked away in a little nook. Love how close it is to the beach, and the fact u can see it from your balcony! Can't wait to spend another weekend in this amazing apartment.
