Get the best of both worlds: the beach on your doorstep, and the city just a 20-minute ferry ride away. Walk out the front of this immaculate century-old renovated apartment to enjoy Fairlight beach and seapool, or breakfast on the sun-drenched balcony to take in the stunning 180-degree views of Sydney Harbour and the ocean. Or watch the ferries sail by from the lounge room and bedroom.
Fairlight beach is a magnet for snorkelers and divers all year round, but especially between September and April, and is only one of many small sandy outcrops along the Manly-Spit walking track you can join from outside the front door. A 15-minute walk will get you to Manly's famous surf, restaurants, bars and shops and aquarium. The paved path outside to the wharf and Manly centre is perfect for jogging, walking, children, elderly, prams and wheelchairs.
The apartment is fully contained, and includes linen, towels, WI-FI and Foxtel. The gourmet kitchen includes fully operational oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is a lock-up garage and separate laundry with a washing machine.
If water is your thing, go no further. Diving and snorkelling classes operate from our beach, only a 90-second walk down the path. Paddle boards and all surf gear can be hired nearby at very reasonable daily or weekly rates.
