About the property

Gemstay is a pristine, bright and airy studio conveniently located.

Gemstay has its own private entrance off a deck and terrace. It is set in a quiet neighbourhood with extensive views and is close to beaches, bustling restaurants, bars and public transport.

Guest Access

The space is a self contained studio with high quality appointments. It has its own kitchen and has laundry facilities (washer and dryer) within the bathroom. It is designed for a couple with a queen size bed. An additional comfortable auto inflatable single mattress is available. A travel cot suitable for infants and toddlers is also available on request. Wifi is available and the space has Foxtel cable television. Other amenities include iron and ironing board, hairdryer, clothes drying rack, heater, multiple speed fan, smoke detector and fire extinguisher, first aid kit, secure key lock box and on street parking

In addition to the studio, deck and terrace, guests will have limited access to a pool and spa deck located at the rear of the property. It has panoramic ocean and district views and is in a tropical setting overlooked by several stands of palm trees. The pool will be available from 7am to 7pm and may be shared with friends and family of the hosts. However, there will be occasions where the pool area will be closed due to maintenance and access will not be allowed.

Interaction with Guests

We live on site and are happy to help guests with advice on getting around, dining and enjoying the beautiful nearby beaches. At the same time, we respect the privacy of our guests so they can decide how much interaction they wish to have with us as hosts. The studio is completely separate from the rest of the house and so offers privacy and independent living.

The Neighbourhood

North Curl Curl is a quiet area in the heart of the Northern Beaches which is popular for its relaxed lifestyle and its famous surfing beaches as well as a myriad of restaurants, bars, parks and shopping centres. Apart from strolling along the sands of the surf beaches there is a beautiful cliff side boardwalk at South Curl Curl or a walkway around Curl Curl lagoon.

Getting around

It's an easy walk to beaches and restaurants, and just 250m to the bus stop for travelling direct to the city. Or take the bus to iconic Manly and continue on a relaxing ferry trip across beautiful Sydney harbour, past the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, and on to the city. (Check bus and ferry timetables.)

Well appointed Studio in Dee Why, Sydney

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay in this studio, in Dee Why, our host Liz was on hand with all the information you could need.

We used public transport to get around using the opal card system which covers bus, ferry and train, the nearest bus stop was about 4min walk.

We also did a fair amount of walking, beach and strip 20mins, supermarket 20mins, the terrain is a bit hilly, so reasonable degree of fitness required.

The Studio is well appointed and comfortable, there is a portable hob, and frying pan and microwave, but no oven.

Dee Why itself has a good beach, with a strip mainly consisting of eating places.

Manly is a 20min bus ride away and has nice beach and all the facilities, it also has a wharf where you can take the ferry into Sydney passing the Opera House and Harbour bridge on the way, a must for visitors.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and recommend the Studio, only thing to bear in mind if you do not have a car, it is a 20min hilly walk to beach, supermarket etc
