Combining the Manly lifestyle with space and tranquillity of an artist retreat, this 2 bedroom cottage is located on the beach/lagoon-side of Manly Vale, only 2Km from the heart of Manly. Perfect for families or couples wanting to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of Manly but without the hustle and bustle.

The cottage is described as a sunshine house, where each room catches the sun providing light and air. It is beautifully decorated with modern and vintage pieces combined to create a comfortable and Vogue style ambience.

You can wake every morning to the peace of a sun drenched garden dispersed by the occasional chatter of birds. While you enjoy your breakfast on the private north facing deck you can plan whether to go for a level walk to the beach or Manly on the cycle path just outside the door, or enjoy the sights of Sydney. If you need to shop and you don't have a car you are only 10 minutes walk from buses to the city and local shopping centres.

The main bedroom has a comfy pillow top queen sized bed with plenty of storage in the built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom has two pillow top long single beds that can easily be combined into a king size bed. The beds are ready made with hotel quality linen and electric blankets so you can put your feet up and have a sleep when you arrive. A sturdy fold-away bed is available to accommodate a 5th person, or if you have a little one, we also have a travel cot.

A fully equipped kitchen means that you can whip up a quick snack or a complete meal. It is stocked with tea, coffee, milk, eggs, cereal, bread and treats so no need to go shopping for that first meal.

Or indulge in an Aussie Barbeque with all the facilities and outside table for great alfresco entertaining.

Enjoy a picnic at a one of Manly's many outdoor attractions with a picnic basket, blanket and thermos.

If you need to check you emails or upload your holiday photos to Facebook, use the free wireless broadband. Otherwise, relax watching your favourite program or latest DVD on the 40" TV.

If the beach is too cold but you still want a swim, the 50 metre Manly Swim Centre pool is only a 5 minute walk away.

If you want to hit the green there are Manly, Warringah, Balgowlah and Wakehurst Golf clubs all within a few minutes drive.

Property Layout

Manly Gardens is on a large secure property of two cottages, occupying the rear half of the property. You can see the layout of the property in the photograph images.

Security of the cottage is assured with the owners occupying the front cottage, and at hand to help you with any enquiries for local restaurants, shopping or activities.

The rear garden is your private retreat with a compost and veggie garden shared with the owners. If you have young ones the garden is secure with gates either side of the cottage providing a worry free environment for your children to explore while you relax on the deck.

Unrestricted parking is available on the street outside the cottage, so no jostling for car spaces. A loading bay is a flat 5 metres from the door allowing you to unpack and pack your luggage without hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Book it! You won't be disappointed! We stayed at Manly Sunshine Cottage for 70 nights as a temporary base while moving to Manly from Norway. The cottage is fantastic!!! It is located in a private setting behind the owners house and is equipped with everything you need, and more! The cottage is very clean, well-maintained and full of wonderful small-touches that make you feel welcome. The garden is stunning, peaceful and relaxing, and full of amazing wildlife. The cottage is in a great location - very close to the shops and buses and a short level walk to Manly, the wharf (for the ferry into Sydney), and the beaches. The owners (Clive, Terese and their family) are so lovely - we felt very much at-home from day one of our stay and actually wish we'd booked to stay longer than we did! Book it! You won't be disappointed!

A fantastic situation, away from the hustle and bustle, but a short distance from the sea, shops and anything else you might need.The property is very well appointed and has all the homely touches you could want to settle in immediately.You won't want to leave.
