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.
We will highly recommend this place to everybody. They were so nice cuple, and of course their son too.
They were so helfull in every case.
We spend 5 wondetfull days whit them.
Thanks for everything Lea and Simon!
Lea's beach house is a nice place to stay to spend a few quiet days at the beach. Lea and Simon were really accomodating and even offered to pick us up from the bus station at the bottom of the hill, as there were no buses running the day we were travelling. Whenever it was possible they offered us a lift to the beach. We really appreciated it, as it saved us the 40 minute walk. We could have also chosen to take the bus from the station near the house, that would have dropped us off in Narrabeen, but actually didn't mind the walk, because we spent most of our days relaxing at the beach. It was a good location to spend our last week in Australia, as all we wanted to do was enjoy a couple of sunny days at the beach.
Lea und Simon waren echt klasse Gastgeber. Beide sind sehr offen und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten ein schönes Zimmer und konnten den Rest des Hauses frei nutzen. Mir guten Tipps und netten Gesprächen hatten wir eine tolle Zeit.
My daughter and I spent two weeks at the wonderful home of Lea and Simon! The house is exactly as it looks in the photos with a terrific view all the way to the sea which we enjoyed while having breakfast on one of the decks. Unfortunately we had quite a long cold and rainy spell so sadly relaxing in the hammock under the big rock was not an option.
Not having a rental car was not a problem, public transport got us everywhere and Simon was very kind in giving us lifts to town and back for grocery shopping. Lea and Simon were very helpful and gave us lots of tips on what to see and how to get there - on one outing they recommended to a nature reserve we saw aboriginal carvings and lots of wild wallabies,
The beach in Narrabeen is beautiful, I would choose it over Bondi or Manly beach anytime (they are much too crowded) and the lagoon is nice for water sports such as kayaking. All in all the perfect place to have a relaxing holiday - close enough to downtown Sydney for sightseeing and not too far out "in the sticks". Thank you Lea and Simon for sharing your home with us, making us feel at home and especially for being so flexible with our arrival and departure dates! We will surely be back!
Great stay..very friendly folk..well they're Aussies
I highly recommend Lea's place to folks who are planning to visit Australia. They are super hosts with great understanding and entertaining capability. They live in a beautiful home in a great neighborhood, friendly neighbors, spacious house with two decks/balconies, 2-3 patios, beautiful big rock and a well manicured lawn in the back yard. All in all an awesome vacation home.
Lea and her whole family are great folks, they were warm and welcoming. Our stay was wonderful. We did few community cooking, beach trips, coffees and breakfast together. Lea and Simon are great at suggesting places to visit, and will help you find stores near by. Their beautiful home is surrounded by nature like trees and greenery, beautiful Ocean view and sounds of birds and cockatoos in the early morning.
My son enjoyed playing Legos, games with Lea's son. It was very nice watching them keep busy doing activities. We wish Lea and her entire family best wishes. Keep up the great work of hosting on Airbnb. If we visit Australia again their place if our first choice of stay!
Sydney still in our mind, heart and soul. Making a life time friend (Lea and & her family) - PRICELESS!!
