Our Ranger's Cottage

A unique and welcoming guest cottage, set in a quiet, leafy cul de sac, with a bush reserve on one side of the street and a secluded arm of Sydney Harbour just a stone's throw away. Nestled in the grounds of a 1920's property, The Rangers Cottage is fully self contained to give you peace and privacy in proximity to the beautiful harbour foreshore and iconic Manly Beach. Originally the local forest ranger's dwelling, it has been completely refurbished and offers a sun drenched living area with kitchenette, a bedroom with king bed, bathroom, laundry facilities and private outdoor courtyard.

On the Harbour

The Cottage is located on the famous Manly to Spit Scenic Walkway, with Manly about 25 - 35 minutes' walk away (or five minutes by car). Picturesque Forty Baskets Beach ( a sandy and safe harbour beach with enclosed swimming area, jetty, rock pools, free barbecues and swings) is an easy eight minute walk through the bush reserve on a sealed path. A great cafe serving delicious coffee, breakfast, lunch and ice cream is a three minute walk via a pedestrian bridge across a cascading stream. Opposite it is North Harbour Reserve, which features a popular children's play area.


The Cottage sleeps up to four including king bed or two singles in the bedroom and double sofa bed in main room. With all the conveniences of home, it is ideal for short and medium term stays and is family friendly. No Smoking or pets.


Main room: comfortable L shaped sofa, dining table (seats up to four), LCD TV, mini stereo system with ipod dock, USB and stereo jack inputs, ceiling fan.

Kitchenette:combination convection microwave. Refrigerator with ice box. Cesar stone bench tops. Cookware, crockery, glassware, cutlery, kettle, toaster.

Bathroom: shower, toilet, vanity, heated towel rail, heat lamp and fan.

Laundry: washing machine, drying rack, iron and board available.

Bedroom: Wardrobe with drawers, ceiling fan, very comfortable king size bed that can be split to make two single beds.

Parking: Available on street. The Cottage has its own entrance from the street.

About us

We live in the main house next door and are on call to answer any of your questions and help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The Cottage is cleaned and serviced weekly during your stay including fresh linen/ towels at no additional charge.

We offer special rates for stays of a week or more.

If you're travelling with young children, a travel cot, high chair and selection of toys can be provided if needed. You will also find a range of books for all ages.

Getting Around

A free Manly Council operated shuttle bus (to Manly ferry wharf and local shopping destinations) runs past the end of the street (100m). Normal buses also operate along this route including a peak hour service to the Sydney CBD. The closest supermarket, along with a selection of over 20 restaurants is 10 minutes walk away.

Natural Australian Beauty

The Ranger's Cottage is so-named because it was originally inhabited by the local forest ranger about 100 years ago. Because we are so close to the bush we do enjoy a wide variety of bird life in the garden so don't be surprised if you find your self being observed by the inquisitive Kookaburras or chatty Rainbow Lorikeets. On your way to the beach or cafe you may also spot Pelicans and other sea birds or shy lizards sunning themselves on the rocks.

If you're looking for stylish, comfortable self contained accomodation in an enchanted corner of Sydney Harbour, you've found it. With the added benefit of friendly local hosts who are happy to help but also happy to leave you to your own devices if you prefer.

So far our first guests have given us the following feedback:

"I love what you've done, it's a stunning renovation"

"It's such a quiet and peaceful location"

"The beds are very comfortable and we love the bedding"

"We have found everything we need in the Cottage"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spot for a family visit to Sydney. Stayed for 3 nights with young grandchildren. Owner could not have been more helpful. The children enjoyed their stay as much as we did, thanks to the availability of toys, books and DVDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect base for a stay in Sydney We stayed at Ranger's Cottage for three weeks while visiting family who live nearby. It has everything you could possibly need, and is very convenient for transport to the city and to Manly and all other nearby places. We used the free buses, and also walked to Manly sometimes on the Spit to Manly walk. Felicity was a great host - always there if we needed her and very friendly. We would love to stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way My husband and I stayed for two weeks in November. Everything about the Rangers Cottage was perfect. It was a complete home from home. Everything you needed was catered for (even beach towels and beach bag!). I would give the cottage 100% in every category - location, cleanliness, layout, facilities, everything was thought of. Felicity was a delight - so helpful and thoughtful. I would recommend the cottage to anybody travelling to Australia - we hope to be back as soon as possible. A complete treasure in the most beautiful part of the world!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as depicted in photos on site; clean, homely, comfortable; all the little things catered for Felicity greeted us as we arrived at 6pm and made us feel most welcome - a truly warm and friendly person. The cottage was all that we had hoped for and more - the breakfast supplies were as promised and the cupboards were filled with everything that you require for a holiday away - you just need to buy the food and drinks and all the condiments and wraps that you require are supplied for you. A lovely beach is within a 5 minute walking distance and public transport is close to hand - this is the best way to get around /Manly/Sydney as parking is a hassle. Great restaurants close by to walk to, in a lovely bush area with parking outside the cottage and if you ever need anything, Felicity is more than happy to assist. Homely, wonderful, pleasant and most of all, a great place to make as a base to visit the sites of Sydney or just to relax with a wine and cheese platter sitting on the garden setting provided reading a book and relaxing. Thank you Felicity :)
