I'm offering peaceful share accommodation for non-smokers in my terrific townhouse in the leafy suburb of Fairlight, only a few mins walk from the bustle of Manly Village and the ferries.
Conveniently located, I am a short walk to the city buses; One minute to the free community bus which takes you all around the Manly suburbs; a nice stroll to the Pacific Ocean beaches and in the inner harbour foreshores.
It's actually only 15 mins by road to the Harbour Bridge, the gateway to the CBD but taking the 30 min Manly Ferry is a wonderful relaxing way to feel part of our beautiful harbour foreshores.
Fresh sheets and towels provided. There's also a comfy travel cot for babies and toddlers.
You will have a very large light and airy room, which has a lovely ensuite. There's a TV and lots of books and videos for you to watch.
(For short term backpackers or travellers, I can accommodate up to 4 people, or 5 at a pinch, in the room which has a private ensuite). The key will be under the mat on the day of your arrival so if I'm not at home you can let yourself in.
I'm not home till later in the evening so I like to know my home is well enjoyed by nice people.
It's infinitely more comfortable and much cheaper than a hostel or hotel of the same standard. There are nice places nearby to stroll to for a cool Aussie brekky. A short walk to Manly Village or grabbing the free Hop Skip Jump village bus, brings you to where there are coffee shops and eateries galore.
Internal laundry facilities.
Lovely sunny garden.
Come and relax and enjoy.
The small townhouse complex is a non-smoking building so please be a non-smoker.
Davey's offers his lovely, quiet pad as Magic Manly. An eclectic interior, comfortable bed and en-suite , coupled with a delightful garden ensure a very satisfying stay. Davey is a very welcoming and congenial host, happy for his guests to use the kitchen and laundry if needed. We were visiting family and had our own transport so for us the location was very convenient. For those without a vehicle - there is a free bus at street's end, but it has limited hours, and the walk to and from Manly with its challenging hill is good for keeping fit !!
Thanks Davey, your home is beautiful and my on regret was I was attending a conference the entire weekend and could not enjoy the courtyard and relaxing atmosphere more. Next time I am in Manly I will be staying with you. Highly recommend anyone to stay here. A++++
Simply amazing. Davey is a great host, relaxed and accommodating. We stayed over the Xmas period and was overwhelmed by Davey's hospitality, including us into his family gathering on Boxing Day. Davey's home is welcoming and calming with a great garden to chill out in with a glassed wine or a beer. Our private room with en-suite was large and very comfortable. A short walk from both Manly Whsrf and beach, Davey's is a perfect choice. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone. Enjoy!

Davey's place was a great choice for our stay in Manly! A mere 15 minute stroll to the beachfront, it was an easy and relaxed base and we pretty much had the place to ourselves the entire time. Comfortable clean room, a gorgeous tranquil garden to breakfast in, and Davey was a great host. Very welcoming, he gave us some great tips for local restaurants and how to get around, and even left us a bottle of wine and some Christmas choccies on our last night! Would definitely recommend it and stay here again.
We stayed at Dave's for two nights and I have to say the memory was so wonderful. Dave provided us a peaceful and reliable accommodation. In the room, there are DVDs, travelling brochures, tourist guides. quilts and blanket, everything you might ask for. We miss the beautiful garden and cozy living rooms. Will surely recommend his place to my friends who are visiting Sydney!
I highly recommend Davey's place and plan on going back again to stay. My daughter and I were made most welcome and all assistance was made to make our stay comfortable. Davey balanced the respect for privacy with a most hospitable manner along with a space for us that was very beautiful to be - especially the garden. Every thing was beautifully clean and tidy and Dave made everything very easy for us. A great Airbnb first experience for me!
We had a wonderful experience staying at Davey's beautiful house. His unit was a quite difficult to find at night but we managed to find it at the end. The room is very spacious, even for three individuals and it contained all the amenities that we would require such as fresh towels, kettle, tv and heater.
Davey was a great host as he was very helpful and friend but he was hardly there. The house is situated about 15 minutes from the beach and it's also closely located to number of shopping centres, which was fantastic for us! Great place to stay and would recommend it to everyone else!
Wow just had a great week-end at Davey's place in Fairlight with my son Timothy who needed a little holiday escape and this was our perfect venue. Just a fifteen minute walk to Manley and ten minutes to the fabulous Fish Markets in Pittwater Rd. So you have choice a when you are at Davey's, cook at home in Davey's fabulous kitchen with absolutely every utensil or electronic device to prepare a gourmet dinner in or choose from the wonderful selection of funky exotic or contemporary restaurants in Manley. We chose to mix that up and loved being able to use Davey's amazing private tropical garden with the lazy neighborhood cat or watch a movie in our room. The room is excellent with fabulous bedding and provides a great sleep.
Davey is very accommodating and is full of wonderful information if you need it but otherwise is never there. Great stay will go back. Best wishes to all who stay Tracy and Timothy and thanks to the BNB team who make this all possible!
Davey is a GREAT host ! Very friendly and helping when he's around, he is always good at striking up the conversation with his culture, his knowledge of the Australian way of life and food allergies (!) and his trips around the world.
He has been very welcoming, and we felt completly at home.
You'll be 10-15 minutes from Manly Ferry Wharf, 10 minutes from the beautiful Manly beach with its great waves, 30 seconds from a park and a swimming pool to do some sports.
We strongly recommend Davey and his beautiful house and garden. You're sure to have relaxing and confortable stay.
Davey has a great place - beautifully furnished and a lovely garden in a great location. The beds were very comfortable and we all appreciated the good quality linen. We were a group of 3 and having our own bathroom was a great bonus. The room was large and worked well for 3 people.Davey is out a lot but still communicated well and had good advice re transport etc as we chose to leave our car in the secure parking. I wish I had had more time just to sit in the garden and make better use of the kitchen!! Spotlessly clean with very tasteful furnishings - highly recommended. Thanks Davey:)
