FRESHWATER: 2 bedroom (half-house) situated in Freshwater close to Manly tourist hub +fast ferry into the centre of Sydney. Spectacular views over Freshwater, Curl Curl and Manly Beaches with distant views of harbour +city skyline.
MINIMUM ONE MONTH RENTAL June-August only.
Idyllically positioned with almost 300 degree views, watch the sun rise over the ocean in the morning in the front of the house (two decks) and have a sundowner drink to toast the sunset on the back deck in the evening.
Feel like you are on top of the world, overlooking all the beaches and distant views of the city skyline and harbour. Spacious, comfortable and feel good living in this sun filled house. Perfect place for entertaining on either of the two upstairs decks.
The house is on two levels. The spacious open plan lounge/dining/+ 2 decks with glass on 3 sides, takes up the entire top floor to capture all the views and create a wonderful entertainment area (incl bathroom). We have had weddings here. Downstairs has the entrance plus large Master bedroom with en suite bathroom and its own balcony overlooking the ocean. Also a smaller double bedroom also with ocean views, and a separate laundry.
Parking can be in our small garage on the street, but more likely you would prefer to park in our more convenient personal cave-like parking spot on the street - at the end of a quiet cul de sac. From the car parking there are 65 steps to the house. This is not a problem to most people as they are easy steps and the views are really worth it, but it may be difficult for older people or people with disabilities.
The other half of the house (downstairs at the back) which has its own entrance and is completely separate from your half is occupied by family friends, who will have no impact whatsoever on you, but who could be of assistance if any problem arose.
Fully furnished - all my regular furniture will be available, including, tvs, all electrical items, kitchen items. I will stow away my personal things, but all else is available for use. All you need is your own clothes.
Interaction with guests
I will more than likely be living close by, but may be travelling during this time in Australia. However will be available by email/airbnb to be contacted at all times.
Other things to note
If you wish to add extra guests, I have one electric comfortable blow up Queen size mattress. Please notify me beforehand. Plenty of room in master bedroom or upstairs.
I don't want anyone thinking I have misled them so although I have mentioned it above, please note that there are 65 steps to my house from the street. This is not a problem at all to most people and children, but it may be difficult for older people or people with disabilities. As a 63 year old I skip up and down easily. In holiday mode, you can take your time and enjoy the view on the way.
Gatherings such as BBQ's and family dinners with guests up to 20 allowed.

Hi. I am a 62 year-young female TAFE college computing teacher who enjoys travelling at every given opportunity. I came originally from Dublin Ireland. I have, over the years, travelled extensively through Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and some parts of the USA and it was during one of these adventures I met my Australian husband and ended up living in Australia, becoming an Australian citizen and having my children here. I recently lost my husband to cancer, so travel now with friends and/or family.
I especially enjoy meeting up with people from different countries and different cultures, which is one of my reasons for travelling. I regularly have had overseas students from all over the world staying in my house while they are studying in Sydney, so love the idea of hosting on airbnb.
My interests are music, sailing, kayaking and tennis.
