A lovely studio nestled on the bank of Manly lagoon, a short walk to Manly and its beaches. Own shower & toilet and separate entrance way. Use the outside BBQ and dine on the deck overlooking the lagoon. Free parking. Great access to all public transport including buses and ferries to the city which run until late at night.

The space

The studio is a lovely little space right next to Manly lagoon. Just grab a chair, a drink and some nibbles then sit back and spend a few hours watching the fish and birdlife. The studio has its own bathroom with shower and toilet, a TV, a small bar fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. It has a very comfortable double bed, and an open wardrobe and hanging rack for storage. It is separate from the main house where we live and is accessed without going through the main house. Although the studio does not have a kitchen, guests are welcome to use either the outdoor BBQ on the deck or let us know if you need to use the kitchen in the main house.

Guest access

Being in Manly means we are geared up for an outdoor lifestyle. There is a BBQ on the deck and outdoor furniture for meals. Feel free to take one of the chairs and sit on the edge of the lagoon and enjoy a relaxing drink while watching the leaping fish silhouetted against the setting sun.

Interaction with guests

I also run a tourguiding agency and am more than happy to provide information about great things to see and do both in Manly and in Sydney in general.

Absolute treasure of a place. Unique, in fact. Nothing too fancy, just a chance to wake up next to a place of beauty and tranquility. Great hosts - will be back!

John was a perfect host - from letting me check in early to allowing my boyfriends bag to be delivered to their house, he and Bev were dream hosts. The place is cosy, well situated, peaceful and was a lovely intro to our time in Sydney. It can be private from the main house as you have your own access and aren't disturbed if you don't want to be. Easy to access from the airport, and a pleasant beach stroll or quick bus ride to all manlys amenities. Definitely recommend.

Thanks to John and Bev, was made very welcome and I very much appreciated the personal touch of helping me get to the start of the fabulous Harbour walk and to the Manly ferry. Quiet location and private studio just as advertised.

I had a really great stay - convenient, comfortable and beautiful location. A short walk to freshwater and Manly beaches. John and Bev were really helpful and friendly.

This was exactly as described. The bedroom and bathroom are small but practical. However John and Bev make the kitchen and living room in their own home available which makes all the difference if you want to prepare a meal or watch TV after a long day. The situation is lovely with a walk or short bus trip to Manly and 10 min walk to Freshwater village. The real added extra however is meeting John and Bev who are great company and know and love the Northern beach area. Their advice helped us enormously in planning the remainder of our Oz trip. Nothing was too much trouble. Hosts like this are what make AirBnB special. Highly recommended.
