Description

The Space

I have an old renovated 1910 Edwardian house in North Manly which is actually a 5 minute jog to Queenscliff Beach and a 12 minute casual walk to Manly Beach. There are one to two rooms available.

The home is situated, as I said, in North Manly/Manly and is in one of Sydney's most beautiful beach areas. It's on a relatively large level block 540m. It has a large Balinese type garden with LOTS of plants - so it needs plenty of water. There is a herb garden at the front which I use for most of my Asian dishes.

It is a 3 bedroom home, each of the rooms is large with beautiful old brass and porcelain antique beds (one Queen and two Doubles). It has a main bathroom with a lovely old claw foot cast iron bath, living room with 3 seat sofa, dining room and table which seats 6 people. The kitchen adjoins the dining and living room with gas stove cook top, range hood, oven and microwave. The kitchen is made from 120 year old timbers from the original Grace Bros Department store.

There are a number of antiques and collectables in the house and there is a brand new washing machine and dryer and of course an iron. There is a wonderful decking area and outside bathroom/laundry. It has a large cast iron claw foot bath, separate shower, toilet, basin and new front loader washing machine. It's perfect for a cosy relaxing bath or showering after being at the beach all day - you don't need to bring the sand into the house.

The house is situated approximately 13km from the city of Sydney. It is within 2km to the Manly Ferry, 30 meters to public transport, a bus which takes you into the centre of the city in 30 minutes or you can catch the ferry. The ferry trip to the city takes about 18 minutes on the fast ferry or 30 minutes in the older style ferries. The older ferries are much more fun.

The area is peaceful. You can walk to the local dog beach, which is 10 minutes away or to park which is about 5 minutes walk. There is a beautiful walking trail literally 10 minutes away where you can walk along the waters edge with views of all of Manly.

There are lots of great restaurants, cafes, hotels and bars in Manly.

Finally, but not at all least is that with sharing the house and the garden, comes the privilege of hanging out with Rosie (a 1 yo terrier x) and Matilda (a 6yo Beagle Sausage dog x). Both extremely friendly. They love kids and adults.

You will love staying here.

The house is close to the beach. If you love swimming, running or riding a bike then you will love being here. It is a very safe neighbourhood.

There is the 155 bus directly opposite my house which takes you to Manly ferry or go the other way to the Warringah Mall. During the business week there is an early bus which gets to the city in 35 minutes.

From the airport take the train to Circular Quay ($17). Take the Manly Ferry from Circular Quay to Manly ($7). Take the 155 bus to Pittwater Road and get off opposite the Mitre 10 Hardware Store or Bike shop and walk 50 meters to my home.

If you are staying and you like gardening - please feel free to help me out. :-)) You are free to take the dogs on walks to the park and beach

Guest Access

Guests will have a key to the front and back doors.

You have access to a computer, wi-fi, cable TV and everything else in the house. As I live here, we need to share the space so it's good if we get along and enjoy a glass of wine. There is a BBQ out back which you are free to use.

You will have your own private room and private 'period' style bathroom with a gorgeous claw foot bath. You will also have access to common areas:
Lounge
Dining
Kitchen
Second bathroom/laundry

Interaction with Guests

If I am around I am happy to show you Manly and the surrounding areas and share a beer or glass of wine with you.
