Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Family Home We had a fabulous stay at The White House. My parents were visiting from overseas so we decided to have a staycation in Sydney on the Northern beaches. I was worried I wouldn't relax with it being close to home and work but that was certainly not a problem. The house itself is perfect for a family of all ages (We ranged from 70 year old grandparents to young children 3 and 18 months). The decor is simple but l stylish. The owners are very helpful and accommodating offering to help with baby gates and clearing the house of hazards. In the evenings we loved BBQing and then sitting out on the deck enjoying the view and looking at the stars. We spent our days on the beaches, in the park or grabbing brunch and coffees in Freshwater. The house is in a great location 5 minutes from Freshwater beach and ocean pool plus Curl Curl ocean pool is only a 15 minutes walk away. Freshwater village is 10 minutes walk away. Manly is a 15 minute drive so we ate out a few times there. Also, the thai in Freshwater is superb and does takeaway if you want a break from cooking. I would highly recommend this holiday home and would go back again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to live here! We had a fantastic week at the White House and can highly recommend both the property and the location. The house easily accommodated two families and we celebrated New Year and a 40th Birthday in some style. We loved the inside space and the bifold doors leading out to the decking from the main room and the kids enjoyed having their own TV room. Freshwater Beach is just round the corner and Manly is a great walk over the headland. The house is also close to the village and we enjoyed brunch at the local cafes and found a great Thai restaurant. Public transport is easy into Sydney - both buses and ferry depending on your mood. A memorable holiday, I hope we get a chance to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great house in a nice place We (3 adults and 3 teenagers) really enjoyed our stay in ”The White House”. The location in Freshwater overlooking a part of the sea was great. It was close to beaches, busses and a small centre with good restaurants and nice shops. The interior reminded us Scandinavians much of home and was very bright and chic. The kitchen and dining areas were our favourites since opening the numerous windows made it feel like there was no barrier between outside and inside. We found John, the owner, very nice and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend a stay in the White house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely House, Great Location We spent a week in this lovely house, shared between two families and felt very comfortable. Seamless indoor outdoor living with the beautiful deck and great for the kids with downstairs area and even a table tennis table. A genuine couple of minutes walk to the beach! Great shops and coffee only a little further the other direction. We found the owner John easy to communicate with and had no problems with the booking/payment/access process.
