                                                              10 of us (9 adults and 1 child) stayed at the property for our wedding in Manly. We had such a great week together in the property. The rooms were all of a good size, the kitchen and shared living areas were really big and sociable. The upstairs bedrooms and ensuite are a good retreat, with the added bonus of a private balcony area. We also enjoyed sitting out the front having a BBQ and splashing around in the pool in the back garden with all our friends. The property is in a great location, only a short walk from Manly, Manly corso and of course the beach. We also did part of the Manly - Spit bridge walk, which was lovely.

                                                              At first i was a little apprehensive about booking the property but with alot of emailing between myself and my host (who made me feel very comfortable) i booked. When i arrived the instructions where simple to understand & everything in the emails & manual cover everything you need to know. I opened the door to an absolutely immaculate property. The house has a very homely warm feel & inviting feel. As i am between properties i had put everything in storage & honestly the house has it all for you. The cleanliness is 100% & suprisingly a large yard. Myself & my girls have extended our stay from 2 nights to a few weeks we love it so much here & the staff have been so helpful & friendly its been a weight off my shoulders as i didnt want to sign a 6 month lease knowing i only needed something short term. Extremely happy

                                                              Excellent apartment

                                                              This is a beautiful apartment, one of the nicest ones we have stayed in during our 50 years of renting holiday accommodations. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped, clean and it was lovely having Louise on hand for advice and any problems. The welcoming bottle of wine was great after the drive from the airport to the apartment. Robert replied to all our e-mails promptly. We hired a car as we are in our late 70s and would have found it too much to walk into Gladesville and back for our shopping. However we went into Sydney by ferry which was great and we used the ferries frequently. We really appreciated the loan of the Opal cards which made travelling about very easy. We did not use the pool so cannot comment. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment which was more like renting a home than a vacation rental.
