David and Louisa provide a fantastic light and well ventilated space in which to rest and awake. The bedroom and bathroom are high spec high finish environments which are both comfortable and functional. Sadly i had no time to relax in the garden and utilise the BBQ. Fairlight is the next suburb west from Manly and a pleasant walk to Manly ferry terminal. My morning run was enhanced by the pacific heights style hills surrounding the area which may require some to use taxis(not to be used as part of a run)!!. Manly is a superb place to escape the city with the slick cafe culture and beach/surf experience juxtaposed in a fantastic urban beach balance. Breakfast supplies and facility are splendid with canine grounds security and companionship provided by the McCrae's fine Schnauzer pet (guard dog/lick monster : - ))
I look forward to staying with you on my return! If you have availability.
I spent two wonderful weeks at David and Luisa's - the whole experience exceeded my expectations. I came away relaxed and refreshed.
They were the ideal hosts - providing a welcoming, flexible and accommodating environment. Available yet unobtrusive. Everything provided without fuss. Easy going and lovely people.
And the house! The photos do not do it justice.
Even the location was close to shops and a bus route of a couple of minutes to the Manly beaches if you did not feel like a five minute walk.
Needless to say - totally recommended by me.
I feel so lucky to find David's apartment and had the chance to stay there even just one night. It's an absolutely gorgeous house in great location, only 10 mins walking distance to both the ferry terminal and the beach. They were so kind to lend me the bicycle, with which I have cycled and seen the amazing Manly Beach and Shelley Beach. Manly itself is an awesome getaway choice from Sydney centre as well. I'd highly highly recommend this place to everyone who is lucky enough to stay there.
I joined David and Luisa during a rather busy time for them but even so they were extremely welcoming and hospitable. I enjoyed their beautiful home and it was the perfect relaxing accommodation I was looking for in a beautifully designed space. The only minor detractor was even though their house is close to Manly beach, it's all uphill which isn't the most fun after a whole day venturing outdoors (there are buses that take you almost straight to their street however). Regardless it was still a great stay.
Amazing location, beautiful house, lovely room and friendly hosts. I can't thank enough David and Lise for their advices, their hospitality and efforts to accommodate my diet for the breakfast. I'll keep a fantastic memory of my stay in Manly, thank you!
David's flat is gorgeous and the room is light and comfy with the best bed of any guest room ever. Great Internet, just 10 minutes walk from the Manly ferry. David works from home, so he's often around to answer any questions or offer sightseeing advice, which is very handy.
David was very welcoming, the room was great and we had a fantastic weekend.
fresh breeze, beautiful sunshine reflected on windows, bird singing and bright energy; these are what me and my wife felt about the house! I still remember the refreshing feeling of the moment I just entered the house and I woke up in the morning. So fresh and bright!
Decoration, interior of the house were very beautiful with its simple and practical design-loved their workplace- with many art collections including their portfolios as architects.
David and Luisa were very kind and gave us very helpful information in order for us not to get lost! :D
We definitely recommend this house to anyone visiting Manly!
