Simon, Karl and Lea were so welcoming to us! My friend and I felt comfortable the whole time we stayed. They are all extremely friendly and warm people.
The house is in an amazing area with a great view and awesome weather - even in winter! Close to everything you need, clean and tidy. The bedroom is a great size with plenty of cupboard room. We thoroughly enjoyed the electric blankets. Bathroom is huge and fantastic and the heated floor tiles did not go unnoticed! Simon was more than happy to let me use the washer and dryer, show me around the kitchen and even gave us our own shelf in the fridge and pantry for our food. The kitchen was left open for us to use and boy did we cook up a storm in there! Thanks for putting up with our smoothie making too.
Thanks for all the funny conversations and always being courteous of us in case we were sleeping!
Extra kudos to Simon for sharing his music, printer, wine and Shapes biscuits with me. Also he has a fantastic taste in music and tv shows!
Wonderful welcoming hospitality from Simon and Karl that made me feel perfectly at home. With great views out to the ocean and just a short ride to the beach I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again for your kindness and opening your home to me.
I had a wonderfull time during my visit with Lea and her family. Lea had some good tips for daytrips in the area and she was really enthousiastic about them so that I was really curieus and she was right, Sydney is an amazing town, I went to the most beautiful beaches and did some lovely hiking. I would recommend Lea's place to everyone who just wants te relax, visit Sydney or the area around because it is amazing.

Lea and Simon's Elanora Heights Beach house is the perfect place to explore the Northern Beaches area of Sydney. The house is lovely and spacious and affords you both comfort and privacy.
Lea, Simon and Karl are extraordinary hosts-helpful with any need you may have!
My daughter and I chose not to rent a car and it was not a problem-the bus at the end of the block can take you to the beaches or the city, with Lea or Simon providing rides when needed for shopping, etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Elanora Heights and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a friendly laid back experience!
This is a fantastic house, and Lea and Simon, and their son Karl, are excellent hosts - they really make you feel at home. They were ok with me coming at very short notice, and could always recommend activities and places to go and see.
Great hosts, excellent location, lovely home.
I'll start by saying that Lea, Simon and their son Karl are a beautiful family. They are friendly, welcoming and they have the rare ability of making you feel at home since the minute you walk in.
The house is exactly as in the photos, my room was clean, quiet and spacious and I slept very sweet dreams on that comfy new mattress.
My other highlights: making coffee with Lea's espresso machine; enjoying water views while dining at the big table in the living room; admiring the majestic sunrise from the top level of the rear garden (which, in itself, is a nice tiny example of australian bush); going for a jog in the peaceful and leafy neighborhood; and swimming in the Ocean pools of the beautiful Northern Beaches.
Lea and Simon are fantastic entertainers and I enjoyed some good chats with them.
I super-highly recommend this accomodation both for the place and the people.
