My Husband (Darryl) and I have just finished our renovations on our penthouse apartment here in Manly. We love it and we hope you will love it too! We have great views over Sydney Harbour and Manly beach that you can gaze at for hours.

The space

My Husband (Darryl) and I have just finished our renovations on our penthouse apartment here in Manly. We love it and we hope you will love it too! We have great views over Sydney Harbour and Manly beach that you can gaze at for hours when you're not exploring the local area.

Manly is considered one of Sydney's best day trips. While we agree, we also believe it gets better when all the day trippers go home for the day! It is worth staying a while with a choice of surf and harbour beaches only a short walk away, with access to some unique nature trails and great restaurants, bars and shops at your doorstep.

But more about where you will stay at our place. You will have your own room and exclusive use of your own bathroom which have both been newly renovated. The bathroom includes a deep slipper bath for a soak after that day at the beach or a large shower for the more upwardly mobile. Step out to the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the comings and goings of the sail boats, cruise liners and iconic Manly Ferry across the harbour.

You have access to all amenities, kitchen, washing machine, dryer, BBQ and even a clothesline on the roof which is one floor above. The apartment is serviced with WiFi and with Espresso coffee machine & tea making facilities. With plenty of space and a wrap around balcony it means you will have the opportunity to either keep to yourself or join in with us when we are home. The kitchen, lounge and dining has been newly renovated and have all the latest appliances installed.

We both work during the day but are around to help with local advice on Manly, its surroundings and with assistance on getting around Sydney. We love to travel also, so are keen to hear your travel stories, where you have been and where you're going!

Manly is a vibrant village surrounded by many exciting water activities - such as Scuba Diving, Para-sailing, Swimming with the Sharks, Surfing, Kayaking, Whale Watching, Yachting, Snorkling, Fishing, etc. However, most tend to simply laze on Manly Beach and enjoy the many nearby restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, stalls and fairs that regularly take place here. Manly is not only bless with one of the best beaches in the world but is also surrounded by National Parks. So in and around Manly is an abundance of bush walking paths, most with gorgeous ocean views. Our favourite walk is the "Manly to Spit Bridge" walk primarily as it begins directly opposite our building and because of its display of flowering native plants and associated ocean scenery.

So you are invited to stay with us in our home by the sea and we look forward to meeting you soon.

Cheryl & her husband are great hosts and have a wonderful apartment with spectacular view over the harbour. All the accommodation is super clean & comfortable and they provided us with great ideas and advice about the local area. We had not done shared accommodation before and were a little sure of what to expect, but it was a great experience thanks to our hosts and we hope to return again one day.

Look no further! This is the place you should stay!! From the moment we arrived Darryl (Cheryl's husband) couldn't have been more welcoming. We were made to feel at home and instantly relaxed. The apartment is beautifully done, just like the photos, and the views are stunning. I loved the slipper bath and the bed was very comfortable. It's a short stroll downhill to manly wharf so an ideal base for sight-seeing via the many ferries.

Very nice 8th floor apartment with stunning views of Manly and parts of Sydney Harbour. Easy walk to Manly centre, free bus back as its quite a hilly area. Transport links to Sydney via Manly ferry is excellent. The hosts also provide a seperate bathroom for guests which is very nice. Cheryl and Darryl are very friendly, helpful and accomodating. Its a great place to stay.

My Fiancé and I stayed with Cheryl & Daryl for a week... After reading some of the great reviews / feedback from others we looked forward to our stay. From the moment we arrived we could see why everyone before us had left such nice reviews... You have a great 360 degree view over the harbour and surroundings of Manly, very clean and well kept appartment with great facilities. For us, best of all were Cheryl & Daryl.. From advice on places to visit to inviting us to enjoy a bbq with them, you wont find a better place to stay in Manly! Thanks again for all the advice, kindness, help, and general chats on life!! - Connor & Jeni x
