This comfortable quiet home is positioned superbly. It backs directly onto Garigal National Park above Middle Harbour. Just 15 minutes from Sydney Harbour Bridge and 10 minutes to famous Curl Curl and Dee Why Beach. Bushwalk, swim and explore!

The entire home is yours to use. We have a lovely kids cubby house, enormous trampoline, see-saw and swing outside. There is on site external office that will be locked during your stay. You can access the national park through a side gate at the back of the block. Our block is large and the house is set off the street. Our neighbours are long-term family residents who are very personable but would also appreciate privacy and courtesy extended towards them.

What to do in Forestville

Forestville is surrounded by Garigal National Park and Middle Harbour. It a really family friendly community. We often go to Chatswood as it offers a large Westfields and Chatswood Chase to shop. Chatswood has great eateries and good train access to the CBD. Our hands-down family favourite weekends are spent at Dee Why Beach - swim, eat, play or Manly - we love getting a ferry into the city. On Sundays public transport in Sydney has a special family fun day and you can commute anywhere or anything for just $2.50 all day. Locally in Forestville you have our shopping village with groceries, cafes, Thai, Chinese, Turkish food or Forestway which is bigger again. There are family friendly pubs where kids can play whilst you relax - happy to share these details when you book.

House Rules

Please no smoking inside and limit noise post 10pm.

Pets are okay however our yard is not 100% secure - a dog can escape (as can a small child). Please keep an eye on really small children as it is a big outdoor and misadventure can occur.

We would welcome a small well tamed, older dog who is house trained and would remain close to owners. Likewise with a cat or a bird.

We love animals and if they are part of your family lets try to make this work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Property for the price and location We enjoyed our stay and the house is in an excellent location for an easy commute and very reasonably priced. A couple of key notes for consideration: Only 1 bathroom, drive way is very steep and a challenge, parking is an issue if you have more than 1 car, Bedding is really for 2 adults and 4 children as the single beds are small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Potential to be lovely Please be aware this is a family home with personal clothing etc in cupboards although some space had been made for ours. The fridge had food left in it including a mouldy pizza and I didn't use the oven as I didn't feel like it was clean enough. If this place is to continue to be used as a holiday letting the towels and bedding definitely need to be upgraded and the cleaner needs to be sacked! This is constructive criticism as the house is in a great location backing onto national and close to the city.
