The arty creative space is set in a garden and bush location and minutes to Sydney harbour forshore.
The sound of the waterfall and birds are a sweet contrast to the vibrant Manly cafe and restaurant scene only a short distance away.
Welcome to Manly, '7 miles from Sydney and 1000 miles from care'.
Come stay in our stylish Appartment set in a bush location and only metres to the harbour beach.
We are 2.5 km from Manly, a famous beachside location of Sydney.
Your Space by the Sea
The flat is the bottom floor of a house and has a homey yet stylish feel. A big terrace looks onto the garden and offers the delight of birdlife and nature. Grab your towel and stroll down the bushy path to the sandy beach or the marina.
We are right next to 40 Baskets, a local secluded beach named after a catch of 40 baskets of fish sent to a contingent of New South Wales troops detained at the North Head Quarantine Station after returning from Sudan in 1885.
It is a very quiet spot preferred by locals for its tranquility even in busy summer months. Tucked away yet close to all amenities and the buzz of Manly cafes and restaurants. All in all, your perfect spot by the sea to unwind and recharge...

Ivana is such a caring, accommodating and lovely host. She certainly helped us transition with ease from cold winter Europe to sunny Sydney with her warm welcome and very well equipped accommodation (which makes life with a baby so much easier!). We thoroughly enjoyed our month in Balgowlah at the Bush Retreat like a holiday. And despite moving to the same area recently, you won't get that package of bush/nature/beach with Kookaburra's laughing in the trees and cricket concerts in the evenings plus cute funny water dragons in the garden anywhere else. Oh, not to forget that it's only a scenic 30 min stroll (or short bus ride) to Manly ferry wharf and world-famous beaches, shops, markets, cafes-if you feel like leaving the sanctuary at all :-)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ivana's place. A home from home experience, with a secluded sub tropical garden around us, and Sydney harbour side bush land on our doorstep. All we needed for a comfortable easygoing stay, with a welcome from our host who left us free to enjoy ourselves as we pleased.
Very peaceful, comfortable, garden apartment, with everything you need for your stay. Ivana is a very welcoming hostess. Balgowlah is so nice and calm with easy connection to Manly and Sydney. Lovely walk to Manly, but pretty steep walk to shops! Bus stop only a short stroll away.
die Unterkunft ist von der Lage und von der Raumaufteilung in einer ruhigen Lage. Die Sauberkeit der Unterkunft lässt zu wünschen übrig. Durch den Garten und die starke Vegetation rund ums Haus sind auch jegliche Kleintiere vorhanden.
Hi Chrstoph, i am very worried about your negative review. (maybe i didnt translate correctly on (website hidden))I cleaned the property before you came . THe floors are a rustic cement finish so those marks are always (website hidden) we are in a bush invironment the outside dust is always getting in.
You didnt mention anything positive like the huge outdoor terrace amongst the trees. THe food and wine i left for you both.All amenities were catered for.
Please let me know so i can fix anything and make it better.
We were coming from Japan after the earthquake and needed a place to stay quickly. Ivana was really fast answering and offering her place. We enjoyed staying there in the bush. The home is nice, not easy with small kids, close to beaches. Don't be scared by spiders if you want to stay there!
