“Fantastic location in beautiful Manly”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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 22 March 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 10 February 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.

“Great location, clean and efficient”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Very handy to beach , stores and ferry. Good building security. Unit is quite small but has larger fridge. Stairs at unit entrance a bit challenging. Nice balcony with table, chairs and drying rack. Friendly and responsive host. Kitchen well equipped. Water very hot. AC works well. Fairly quiet. Comfy bed.

“Location, Location, Location!”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Kirsti is an excellent owner who went out of her way from start to finish to make sure that we had everything we needed. She is friendly and exceptionally responsive to emails/texts/calls.
The location is perfect and only 2-3 mins walk basically from anything you may need in Manly, including the beach, the corso (many lovely shops, bars and restaurants) and the wharf/ferries.
This apartment is designed for 2 people, (can take upto 3) but bear in mind this is classed as a 'studio' apartment, which is perfectly comfortable for 3 people, if you don't mind all sleeping in one room. It is fully equipped and Kirsti was kind enough to supply some basic groceries for our arrival. The apartment itself could benefit from some attention, as could the air conditioning, which is a little noisy but perfectly efficient. However, I'm sure the cost is reflected in this.
The block of flats is surprisingly quiet, with a wonderful top floor, which includes a gym (for those inclined!) but more importantly, an outside seating area with a perfectly cooling plunge pool & jacuzzi, for the cooler day.
I highly recommend this apartment. You will not be disappointed in it, or Manly itself.

If you would like to stay in Manly with friends or couple, I certainly recommend this property. The location is the best just minutes walk to the beach and Corso. Cleanliness and facilities of the room and the building are second to none.

“Great location shame about the noise”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The location could not be faulted 5 minutes walk to beach and whalf. Only trouble was the noise. Refused collection lorries came between 5-6 am every morning and parked right under the apartment window and it sounded like they collected glass every day. There were then often another two turned up before 8am. When the apartment next door used the toilet it was as if some one had turned the taps full on in our apartment

Thank you for taking up your time to do the review. Most of our guests do love the location of the
apartment (as you mentioned as well) being right in the middle of
Manly. I am so sorry to hear about the noise
you suffered from during your stay. The Short Street Plaza project has caused some
inconvenience/noise/extra traffic (trucks) with the demolition of old pavement etc (and
some work having to have carried out at early hours of the morning).
There may have been some irregularities with the council garbage collection throughout the project.
The Manly council has finally finished it and the front of the building does look so much better now with the seats at the plaza as well
as some plants, etc. I can assure you that the council pick ups are back to normal schedule.
As for the bathroom noise, I do apologise for that as well. Unfortunately it is part of living in the block of apartments
that sometimes insulation is not as good as one would wish for. I must say though that more than 50% of the building
is owner occupied and it is seen as one of the more quiet buildings in the area ( and Manly centre is a busy area
as there are residents as well as couple of millions of
tourists that visit Manly every year being one of the top destinations in Sydney/Australia). Sometimes expectations
maybe different by different guests as if one is used to living in a house rather than block of apartments, or if one is used
to living in countryside or small town instead of in the City.What somebody may find noisy, another one may
take it just as it is for being "right in the middle of it all"!
Thanks again for your time and feedback. Best, Kirsti
