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.

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.
Jane and Graham’s place was gorgeous! Their apartment is attached to their main house but completely seperate. They’ve decorated it really well and it’s completely new and renovated. Jane has thought of everything and the apartment comes compete with kids (and adult) books, prams, cot etc. The only thing they don’t have is a washing machine but there is a laundry mat not far. The beach is at the end of the street - just a short walk and you can either take a slow walk into Manly centre where the ferry is and lots of shopping! Manly is a great location and is quite an exclusive suburb for Sydney.
We stayed at Jane's house over Christmas and it is in such a perfect location with the beach, shops and parks a level stroll away. The house is spacious and modern with all the amenities one could hope for. It has a lovely private deck with a BBQ and lots of living spaces. We cared for Jane's old dog as well since he did not want the long drive they were embarking on. I can highly recommend staying here.
We enjoyed our stay at Natalie and Oliver’s house in Palyma, Western Australia- our first trip to WA. The house is a lovely character home on a large block of land. The front veranda is gorgeous and the back deck has a lounge setting and dining table for eating outdoors in warm weather overlooking the pool. To get to the nearest town and other site-seeing areas you will need a car as public transport is not a common way of travelling.
We enjoyed looking after their chickens and exploring the beautiful Rottnest Island.
Natalie, Oliver, Oliver’s mum and their two young children stayed in our apartment during their trip to Manly. It was a pleasure exchanging with them and we are so pleased that they enjoyed their stay. Everything was communicated clearly and the apartment was left tidy. Thanks for exchanging with us Nat:)
Rebecca, Rob and their daughter Anna stayed in our home for a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Year. They kept good care of our home, leaving it clean and tidy when they left. We felt confident leaving our home in their hands while we were away visiting our parents, and we particularly appreciated the great care they took of our dog during their stay. Thanks Rebecca and Rob!
G'day from beautiful Manly Beach, 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 to old favourites 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. Manly definitely needs to be shared with our travelling community! You will love it:)
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 nearly retired teacher and my husband is in Finance, 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
