One of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations is here on our doorstep. We absolutely love living here. It feels like we are on holidays permanently. Manly is a must see if you come to Australia. It really has it all so will suit all ages and interests. The ferry trip from Manly Wharf straight into Sydney’s CBD is spectacular and I recommend sitting out the front. You will not want to put your camera down! There is also free internet, a bar and snacks onboard. While the trip is a mode of transport into the city, it is an inexpensive way to see some of Sydney's famous sites eg The Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, Green Island, Kirribilli House where our Prime Minister Lives, The Botanic Gardens, yacht races, fireworks (if you are lucky), whales ( if you are super lucky) and so much more.
Trip Advisor has voted Manly as the best beach in Australia for the past few years.
Whilst Manly has an amazing vibe and such a fun and beautiful place to holiday at, our apartment is located in a lovely quiet, leafy street with friendly neighbours and locals. We are so close to everything, yet a beautiful retreat or oasis for you to come back to- very much the best of both worlds.
Beautifully renovated first floor 2 B/R art deco apartment situated in a lovely street, lined with tropical hibiscus and frangipani trees. The apartment is light-filled with lovely afternoon sea breezes.
We provide an onsite car-space which is a big bonus in Manly. Just park, relax and enjoy.
The kitchen includes a new induction cooktop and integrated oven, dishwasher, two microwaves, large fridge and freezer and all the usual appliances to ensure you have everything you need for your holiday. Most of our guests end up eating out most of the time as the cafes, bars and restaurants are all within walking distance along a beautiful paved beach boulevard. have quality food and are reasonably priced. There is such a large variety that you are spoilt for choice. Many offer live music, happy hours with half price drinks (and sometimes happy hour food) each evening.
There are 2 comfortable Queen- sized bedrooms each sleeping two, a kitchen, bathroom, dining area and loungeroom that comfortably sits 5. The loungeroom has a sofa bed if you need to use it for a 5th person, many board and PS and Wii games and a Sony TV with a large range of DVD's. There is also a large bookshelf for your holiday reading.

Beautiful white sanded surf and bay beaches are all within a 5 min easy stroll of the apartment. It is one of Australia's must-see destinations and it is all on your doorstep. No need for a car. Just walk, people watch and enjoy the wonderful Aussie vibe of living at our wonderful Manly Beach.
There is something for everyone and Manly is great in all seasons.
We are a 4 minute walk to a beautiful white sand surf beach with cafes, shops and restaurants everywhere. You can walk, bus or catch ferry. It’s up to you. I swim almost every day at the beach and walk along the beautiful boulevard at the beach. There is so much to see and do and you won't want to leave:) Uber is always available and reasonably priced.
Happy to catch up for a drink in Manly where I can answer your questions and give you recommendations and directions.

G'day from beautiful Sydney! Like everyone on PLU we love to travel. explore and experience new and not so new places. My husband and I are open to travel anywhere and to return again and again to places already discovered. Our apartment is located in the famous and popular Manly Beach- voted by Trip Advisor as Australia's number 1 beach for the past few years- it needs to be shared with our travelling community:)
Graham and I will absolutely respect and care for your home as if it was ours and know that our exchange partners will do the same for us. We have our second and third exchange families arriving soon which is exciting and we are really looking forward to going on our first exchanges in a few months time to France and Spain. Can't wait! Happy to do sim/ non-sim and globe exchanges.
I am a teacher and my husband is in Finance but I am semi-retired now so I am becoming more flexible with my ability to travel which is so exciting.
Australia is definitely worth a visit...and Manly beach has something for everyone....have a Google and I am sure you will be booking your flights soon:)
Looking forward to planning a wonderful exchange with you.
Jane and Graham
