Duke's at Freshie was setup and fully equipped in December 2014 - Long Stay rates now available.

Private yet open and airy, Dukes has ocean and district views and takes up the entire first top floor of this purpose built beach house. Most rooms in Dukes have views and are not overlooked.

Built in 2011, your stay features a spacious private entry foyer leading up open blackbutt feature stairs to your large open plan lounge, dining, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms. Expansive louvre windows and bifold doors provide a wonderful beach holiday atmosphere and sea breezes. Internal fixtures and fittings are in keeping with the overall quality of the building.

There is a full kitchen with a generous array of cooking utensils and appliances.

Your master bedroom is spacious and has a brand new high quality queen bed with two new sets of linen.

The second bedroom has a double bed with a bunk over. Matresses are high quality and brand new with two new sets of linen.

Bathroom is spacious with separate shower and bath.

The toilet is separate from the bathroom.

Keep your car off the road in the carport next to your private front door. You are unlikely to need the car. Leave all the beach stuff in your entry foyer. Look out at the view. Slow down. Relax.

The maximum occupancy is 5 people.

come in; sit down; grab your favourite refreshing beverage. Relax.

Bring in your beach gear and head straight to the fridge for your favourite beverage

Provisioning such as everyday food and drink and can be arranged. Give me your reasonable shopping list and it will be in the fridge and cupboards for your arrival together with receipts for all purchases.

Your Duke's at Freshie stay is fully equipped and self contained right down to front-loading washer / dryer. Nothing is shared.

There is a range of holiday reading, CDs, and music DVDs available for your enjoyment.

Your host will greet you on arrival to settle you in and farewell you on departure. I am readily available if needed to provide local help or suggestions.

Public transport is at the door. Peak hour Express buses to and from the city run every 7-10 minutes. A frequent bus service runs from 6am to after midnight to and from Manly, and connects with ferries to the city. The same frequent bus service goes to Warringah Mall if you need heavy duty retail therapy in the many major chain stores.

Enjoy it as the locals do and understand why they jealously guard this gem of a beach and village

Very close to Freshwater beach, the ocean pool and the headland, you will find Duke's at Freshie is very conveniently located. Everything is in easy, level well almost level walking distance for adults and children. 2 mins walk to the beach or to peaceful Harbord village. The same 2 minutes to the iconic Harbord "Hilton" pub or the well known "Harbord Diggers" club and gyms. 2 minutes to coffee shops, restaurants, fine dining Pilu small bars, Growers Market, IGA, Liquor store and village shops. The village hums along nicely from early each day until round midnight and has every service and outlet you should need.

Despite being only 1.5 km round the headland from northern Manly, Freshwater beach and village remains one of Sydney's less-discovered gems. It is the birthplace of Australian surfing where Hawaii's Duke Kahanomoku demonstrated board-riding to the locals on 23 December 1914. Duke's board remains in the Freshwater surf club. You guessed it - 2 minutes walk

Freshwater is acknowledged as a very safe children's beach.

We are a very laid back outdoor environment. Freshwater and the beach have a youthful energetic orientation towards quality of life for residents and visitors. The focus is on couples and families and guests enjoying every day in this fabulous place. There are no big chain hotels and no backpacker lodges. Guests are asked to behave in keeping with this youthful vibrant environment.

There is no smoking inside the apartment but as pictures show, there is ample room on the balcony beyond the bifold doors.

Regrettably no pets. Wet, sandy, salty dogs just don't go with carpet I'm sad to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Stay at Duke's We have just enjoyed a fantastic week at Duke's. The apartment was perfectly located, between the village and the beautiful Freshwater beach. We enjoyed views of the ocean and sea breezes. Off street parking was great. The apartment was extremely comfortable with excellent kit in the kitchen, linen and quality furnishings. We enjoyed the treats in the fridge on arrival! We especially enjoyed the thoughtfulness and hospitality of our host Geoff. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning apartment We recently stayed at Dukes with my 2 small children, and loved the apartment. The place is stunning, and the view from the lounge is fantastic. Geoff was really helpful, especially as we arranged it from the UK, and even checked how we were doing, as we arrived during an unusually cold week. If you're looking for somewhere interesting to stay, but still close enough to Sydney to see the sights, I couldn't recommend Dukes enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect property! Dukes at Freshie was perfect for our family of 4. We have young kids and they had plenty of room to play in this apartment. Stairs weren't an issue for us, though they may need to be blocked off for an adventurous crawler! Great to have a parking space and generous enough bedrooms to fit a porta-cot plus our bags. Freshwater is a lovely village atmosphere and has everything you need. Also close to Manly and easy access via the ferry to the city! Thanks to Geoff for letting us stay at last minute and for the handy kitchen supplies! We look forward to coming back again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome at Freshie My kids and I had a greatly stay at Dukes. The rooms were clean, modern and beds were super comfortable. Stamples were provided in the fridge which was thoughtful gesture. Nothing was too much for Geoff, he went out his way to make sure we were looked after.
