“Lovely apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 3 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We booked a 5-night stay at the Manly apartment via the TripAdvisor website a number of months prior to our trip to Australia.  Jenny sent really helpful emails prior to our visit and answered all the questions we had and also kept in touch during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed.

We stayed in Manly at the very end of a long trip around Australia as we wanted a bit of time to relax. We drove to Manly and we met Jenny outside of the car park which was very helpful as I think it would be quite complicated to find the correct level on our own - we only used the bay for one night as we returned the hire car the next day.

Jenny’s apartment is on the 9th floor of a block in Central Avenue and it’s a great location, the views over the bay are stunning. Jenny has produced a very comprehensive guide to the apartment and also took us through all the finer points and showed us around the roof-top pool and laundry area. It is less than 5 minutes to the shops, the Manly ferry and the beaches. The apartment itself is quiet (very little noise from the apartments on either side) and also very secure. It was a pleasure to be able to self cater (in a well equipped kitchen) and relax indoors after staying at hotels and motels for quite some time.

We had a good time during our stay in Manly and Jenny even supplied a mobile phone for local calls which is great if you want to book restaurant or tickets etc. We had some difficulty with the shower on our first morning but Jenny quick advised on how we should be using it (use a slow flow of the hot water as it is so hot so this leaves plenty of water for showers) and it was fine for the rest of our stay. To summarise - a well equipped modern apartment in a great location with a helpful owner who will help you with any queries before and during your stay.

“The Perfect Beachside Apartment for the Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We have just returned from our 3rd trip to Manly Seaside Bliss apartment, it is a wonderful place to switch off, this year was no exception and the absolute highlight of our trip was to sit on the balcony or on the couch and watch the whales play right outside our unit everyday for the 7 days.
Jenny and Llyod are the perfect hosts making sure everything is perfect for your stay even down to supplying binoculars to watch the whales play.
All you need to bring is you, as absolutely everything else is catered for by these hosts.
Manly is the perfect base for a stay with transport only a few short steps from the door.
Manly Seaside Bliss comes highly recommended, the view from this unit is one of the best you will see anywhere and we will certainly be back again next year.

Jenny is extremely helpful, she made us feel right at home. Restaurants, shopping, banks, etc. are right at your doorstep. The beach is only a block away. The condo is very comfortable and well equipped. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Sydney!

“Hosts Spared No Effort to Make Us Comfortable”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment is exceptionally well cared for and contains everything you might need. The bed was comfortable and the sheets felt especially nice.The highlight however is the spectacular view. Waking up to wide views of the sea and blue skies every morning was indeed bliss. Jenny and Floyd are excellent, friendly, responsive hosts. As an added bonus, Jenny is a great cook. Highly recojmmended.

“Our stay at Manly Seaside Bliss far exceeded our already high expectations!”
Reviewed 28 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed at Manly Seaside Bliss for a week between two month-long cruises that began in Sydney. We had purchased loaded Opal cards at the airport as others have suggested, and navigating to and from our cruises between Manly and Sydney via the Sydney ferries was seamless. Walking the short distance with our luggage to and from the apartment....no problem. Hands down, this was the best week of our entire 10-week vacation!

We are always skeptical when we see a listing that has so many 5-star reviews...but Manly Seaside Bliss truly has all the comforts of home (and more) and is worth every single star given by previous reviewers. In addition to the details already provided by the previous reviewers, we would like to add that the building and apartment are very secure, and the WiFi is via a private connection. Inclusion within the apartment of an iron, ironing board, and drying rack; with plenty of washers and dryers nearby (separate rooms on the rooftop, near the pool) was much appreciated since we were away from home for so long. Jenny's organizational skills and attention to detail are excelled by few. She went so far as to ensure that we could bluetooth the music on our tablets through the soundbar below the television as part of her orientation briefing!

With the fear of Manly Seaside Bliss being booked solidly into the future, would we recommend this vacation rental to our best friends? Absolutely! And, YES, we will definitely be back!
