Situated in family friendly Freshwater is this cute three bedroom weatherboard cottage. Beautiful Freshwater beach is at the end of the road, and the vibrant village is a one minute walk away. Bustling Manly is a picturesque walk over the headland, or a short bus ride away.

The cottage features three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite), and kitchen/living/dining flowing onto a sunny deck plus a little garden with a big deck, bar-b-que , and two beautiful frangipani trees.

The style of the renovation is cute and 'beachy' - wooden floorboards, chandeliers, clean and comfy sofas. Light and airy. There is also a gorgeous Balinese daybed for lazy days and a cast iron fire for cosy evenings in winter.

Bedroom one has a queen bed.

Bedroom two has a double bed.

Bedroom three has a triple bunk. This room is perfect for children and has the bonus of a second TV (DVDs only; DVDs not provided).

The living area has TV with Foxtel, so lots to choose from.

There is a wireless internet connection.

Sorry - no large groups of young adults and strictly no parties or functions allowed as the cottage is in a residential area.

There is a bond payable and this is gladly refunded within 4 days of your stay for leaving the cottage in the same condition as the beginning of your stay.

Please note: there are no refunds on cancellations unless the property can be re-let. If it is only re-let for a portion of your stay, or for a lower amount, then a pro-rata refund will apply.

Seahorse Cottage is a no smoking home, both inside and in the garden.

Cot and high chair available.


Strictly no Schoolies, parties, or functions.

Frequently asked questions-

Question - Does the cottage have internet?

Answer - Yes, and the username and password are in the pink welcome folder

Question - Does the cottage have parking?

Answer - There is not a driveway or garage, but there is free all-day parking on the street outside the cottage. I can usually get a space either right outside, or close by.

Question - Is there a cot and high chair?

Answer - Yes, plus cot bedding.

Question - How far is the beach?

Answer- About 250 metres down the road. The cottage is between the beach and the village.

Question - Are there shops and restaurants close by?

Answer - Yes, 1 minute walk away. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in close walking distance. For shopping, you can get most things in Freshwater village; there is an IGA supermarket, butcher, chemists, bottle shops, bakeries, newsagents. Manly has Harris Farm and Coles, Balgowlah has Harris Farm and Coles in Stockland plus Woolworths close by, Dee Why has Coles and Woolworths.

Question - Is there a playground close by?

Answer - Yes, two playgrounds at the beach end of the street.

Question - Can I check-in early/check-out late?

Answer - It depends. The cottage is usually fully booked and we need the hours in between guests vacating and guests arriving to get it clean and sort out any maintenance issues. You can always drop off luggage whilst we're cleaning, or leave luggage for a couple of hours if you are vacating and you have a later flight. Please ask and we'll do our best to help.

Question - Is there air-conditioning?

Answer - No, but there are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and the cottage has lots of windows and French doors, which provide a lovely cross-breeze.

Question - Is there heating for winter?

Answer- There's a log fire and we leave a basket of wood for your stay. Extra bags can be purchased from the Captain's Shop on Albert Street in Freshwater (close by). There are also 2 portable heaters at the cottage.

Question - Do we have to strip the bedding when we leave?

Answer - No, we'll do that.

Question - How do I pay?

Answer - We quote the lowest price with direct bank transfer. We can also take credit card via Paypal, but there is a fee of 4% for this as Paypal charges us for this service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My whole family enjoyed the stay (from Melbourne) Hi Jude, thank you for such a wonderful place to stay. Location is great and communication was excellent.
