“Perfect location with views to die for”
Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

First time in Australia and Lisa certainly contributed to making the trip run smoothly from answering questions prior to booking and greeting us upon arrival at the apartment.
The apartment couldn't have been in a better position with regards to the walking proximity of The Corso, Manly ferry and Freshwater. The walk into the heart of Manly was stunning. Walking beside the beautiful Pacific Ocean to go food shopping suddenly made what I normally class as a chore, a delight. Impressed with Coles Supermarket on Wentworth Street. Not too dissimilar to prices back home in the UK. Really enjoyed lunch at Pilu overlooking Freshwater beach, probably a five minute walk from the apartment. Ate in the outdoor cafe and just missed the whales in the bay by a few minutes! Beautiful spot.
The apartment was perfect for us and we were so pleased we found it. Very comfortable, beautiful lounge and you could never tire from the views which are just stunning. Views which could be admired from the kitchen, dining table and lounge. The kitchen was ideal with everyday cooking utensils. Lots of cupboard space too. Dishwasher was a bonus.
Both bedrooms a perfect size with lots of wardrobe space and very clean bedding.
Thank you Lisa for everything including the delicious chocolates and wine that were in the apartment upon arrival - very nice touch.
I would not hesitate in recommending the Manly Beach Pad.

“Great location, welcoming host, suited us perfectly.”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a great two weeks at Manly Beach Pad. The location was perfect for us, visiting our daughter who lives 100yds away! The steps down to the beach were easy, and stepping back up gave us a thirst!! While there we had some amazing storms, and what a fabulous position to watch them.
Lisa welcomed us and, realising that we knew the area well, left us to ourselves, but I am sure she would have been helpful had it been necessary.
The apartment was well furnished and very comfortable.
We might be returning in a few weeks time.!

“Fantastic host and a fabulous apartment”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I stayed with our two children (aged 10 and 13). We all had such a wonderful time despite the bad weather. In fact, due to the bad weather we spent a lot of time in the apartment. Everything we needed was available to us! Even a heater, heat pump, extra blankets, towels, games, internet, DVDs and books etc.

There are adequate public transport just a few minutes away to get you anywhere. Beach is just a short stroll away. Shops and restaurants is an easy walk. We really got more than we bargained for. So happy with it all.

Thank you Lisa. You helped to make our stay in Manly such an awesome experience.

“Great location, well equipped apartment”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lisa the owner is friendly, willing and helpful.

Good sized bedrooms with very clean linens, even beach towels. Good instructions for how to use the shared washing machine and dryer.

It's great to have off-road parking although you need a small car and good parking skills to get into the garage. Our children loved the Razor scooters.

You can see the beach beyond the buildings - the "beach view" from the apartment isn't great but it is pretty quick to get down to it, and the main strip (the Corso) is 20 minutes walk with children.

We recommend trips up to the North Shore area Ku Rung Gai National Park.

A comfortable, clean, functional. light filled apartment with views of Manly Beach and beyond. Short stroll to Manly beach or Freshwater beach. Wonderful 5 min bike ride down the Esplanade to The Corso and Manly Wharf. It has the best equipped kitchen I've ever experienced in holiday accommodation; important for all who like to cook. The big comfortable dining table made it possible for our family to enjoy home cooked meals, complete school homework and use the laptop. The care and kindness hown by the property owner was impecable. They provided complimentary "extras" which we never expected; breakfast supplies, chocolates and champagne! :) as well as those helpful little things like sticky tape, glad wrap, ice, spices etc. We've come home refreshed, happy and looking forward to our next visit to beautiful Manly.
