“Great apartment, great location”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 for a stay in November 2012

Ideal location - just off The Corso, a couple of minutes walk from the beach in one direction and the wharf in the other. There are plenty of restaurants and take-aways in the area, and a nearby supermarket if you want to eat in. The apartment had all the required amenities, including a/c and wifi. There were laundry facilities in the building, which were useful on a long trip. It was also great to have secure parking for our hire car.

The owners were really friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly.

We picked Manly as we were visiting relatives nearby, but it is a lovely area and a good base for exploring Sydney.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in November 2012

Stayed there with nephew in November 2012 for two weeks, we found the owner and his family most helpful and friendly. They even let us stay on longer on our last day due to us having a late flight. We have recommended it to others.
Brilliant view and very central to beach and Manly ferry for easy access to Sydney

“great accommodation”
Reviewed 11 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This apartment is in a fabulous location for enjoying Manly beaches and travelling on the ferry to explore Sydney.
Well fitted out and equipped with fabulous views over manly's ocean beach.
The owners are wonderful people who can't do enough for you.
There are a wealth of restaurants and eateries within 200 metres of the apartment, Shelley beach is a short walk away and fantastic for snorkelling.
We had rented the owners Collaroy studio for the 8 weeks prior to moving to Manly and we can't enthuse enough about the quality of that accommodation.
Thank you both for being fabulous hosts and we can't thank you both enough.

“Awesome location, you don't realize how good the location is until you have stayed here”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Jarmo quickly got back to me regarding our original inquiry. He provided lots of information about the unit and how to get there. He arranged for his son to meet us when we arrived and his son helped us with our luggage and showed us around the property.

The unit is exactly as pictured. The view from the windows onto Manly beach is amazing. Our kids really enjoyed the sulphur crested cockatoos and rainbow lorikeets that would land on the ledge outside.

The property is a very short walk away from The Corso which has lots of good restaurants. It is also only a few minutes from Manly beach and the ferry terminal so a car really isn't absolutely necessary. Via fast ferry, downtown Sydney is only about 15 minutes or 30 minutes on the slow ferry. On Sunday it is only $10 for a family pass on the slow ferry.

We found the unit to be quite quiet. Although our first Saturday there was some music from outside until late.

There are also lots of good running trails and biking trails in the vicinity.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this property.

Being thousands of miles it is somewhat of a daunting task to book an accommodation other than from a hotel chain and I was very fortunate to have stumbled across Jarmo's listing. From the emails we first exchanged until the time of our departure I could not have asked for a better experience. The accommodations provided were accurately described, fully equipped and very well maintained. The views from the unit are spectacular and the building is conveniently located to numerous restaurants, shops and wonderful beaches Manly & Shelly. Stop in at Ground Zero just next door for large variety of fresh fruit juices/coffee and be sure to visit after 5pm when it turns into Tacos and Tequila they have nightly food specials and $5 frozen flavorful margaritas, I look forward to our next visit ...
