Overview

Manly House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 11, with Air-conditioning, Swimming Pool and several entertaining zones

With views from the 3rd floor of the house through Sydney Heads, the home sits above beautiful Fairlight beach and the Manly Scenic Walkway. It is also situated just 5 minutes stroll along the waterfront from the Ferry Terminal and another 2 minutes on to the restaurants, bars and shops of Manly and famous Manly Ocean Beach so you will not need to get in your car during your stay and your walking will be spectacular!

The home is spread across 3 levels. The base level hosts a remote controlled garage with roller door and parking for extra cars at the front of the garage. There is. A kayak with walk along wheels is there for your use. Internal and external access leads to the middle level of the home. On this level is found the open plan large well equipped kitchen which flows to a sitting room, formal dining room, sun area with views across the harbour and front verandah with barbecue and outdoor setting. Along the hall can be found the main bathroom, three double bed bedrooms (one with a single bed in it) each with built in robes, and a dedicated study. There are 2 porta cots and 2 fold out single beds across the house for additional guests. At the rear of this level is found the laundry, a W.C. and the family room with sliding door access to the elegant salt water pool, outdoor setting with umbrella and the courtyard with table tennis table and an outdoor heated shower.

An internal staircase leads to the top level of the house with the master bedroom with walk in robe and en suite, and a wrap around balcony with beautiful views across the harbour which can also be accessed from the large parents retreat room on this level with a queen sized sofa bed and a single sofa bed in the retreat. On the upstairs balcony there is an outdoor setting and a hanging egg chair so you can wile away the time watching the Manly vista before you.

The house can accommodate 11 people at a comfortable 'pinch' but is best suited to 7 - 9 people in 5 bedrooms (including the parent retreat).

There is WIFI throughout the house (which you will need to 'top up' with payment when you arrive), and a wireless music system with speakers that can be relocated within the house. There is also an 'old fashioned ' record and DVD player. A DVD /TV is located upstairs (for the kids to retreat to!) . There is a further TV mounted on the wall in The rear lounge room with DVD connected... There is airconditioning upstairs only.

This is our Australian home and not a conventional holiday rental so it has been thoroughly furnished and decorated with comfortable and high quality fittings.

About Julie Taylor Mills

PLEASE NOTE: I am out of contact range from 27 Dec 14 till 2 Jan 15.

The owners currently live overseas but this is their family home and as such they are only seeking families or extended families to rent the property or those who will respect our relationship with our neighbours (and thus not host parties in what isa very urban location). The property is not available for weekend lets.

Julie Taylor Mills purchased this house in 2009

Why Julie Taylor Mills chose Manly

We chose to buy this property because we wanted to live by the sea and commute to the centre of Sydney to work by ferry. Manly is the only beach location from which this is possible. We also love the casual atmosphere of Manly, the natural environment and the proximity of the National Park and the fabulous snorkelling. We have not been disappointed. We were a family of 5 till we moved overseas and the ease of access to everything in our daily life from this house meant we only needed one car and it was only used a few times a week. My husband would kayak out through the Sydney Heads before work most mornings with a group of fellow paddlers and I would do a 7am ocean swim from Manly Beach to the Marine Reserve of Cabbage Tree Bay with a swimming group. We need to be reminded quite often about why we have moved to London and are not in Manly!

What makes this house unique

This house is built and renovated for a large family. We fell in love with the clean airy feel of the house and the light….and that was before we saw the views from the top floor and the gorgeous pool. In this home at any time you can have one group sitting on the front verandah having a BBQ , another group kids playing in the pool, others watching TV in the family room and yet more having a formal meal in the dining room and you would not get in each other's way. This is rare in central Manly. As with most historic locations, the closer you get to the centre, the smaller the dwellings become but ours is spacious, gracious and beautifully renovated. And we can still walk everywhere!

Manly Magic lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of grandparents, offspring and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Manly Magic just after Easter.

The first impressions were of light, space (big rooms and high ceilings) and room for separate activities. It was beautifully furnished and decorated and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed and the pantry well-supplied - quite a plus in a rental situation. The bright, clean sparkly pool was enjoyed by the young ones and the ferry, the shops, the diverse eateries, the surf, the harbour beach were all within comfortable walking distance.

The owner and manager were most helpful in accommodating our needs.

Manly Magic exceeded our expectations.

Great spot for an Easter break

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as needed. Spacious clean modern comfortable and perfectly located. Just far enough from everything to have a stroll both ways but not so far you can't wear pretty shoes. Highly recommend and we will be back.

A delightful family home, with all wished for.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect - has lots of room, and everything supplied that you could need. It is in excellent condition, and just asks to be looked after!

We chose it to provide accommodation for ourselves and our guests for our daughter's wedding in Manly. We were able to host a party for both families, as there is ample china, glass etc for entertaining, and the balcony with the BBQ was the ideal venue.

The help we received from both the owner and the caretaker was much appreciated.

There was baby equipment for our granddaughter, who loved the pool, as did the grown ups!

Owner's Response: I am always pleased when guests coming for such a long anticipated event as a wedding have such a great stay. I am especially pleased that the house met all your expectations.

A popular holiday resort location, Manly Beach has an authentic assortment of attractions for both tourists and non-tourists. Situated on a narrow isthmus between the Pacific Ocean and Sydney, Manly Beach is one of Sydney’s finest beaches. With Sydney’s excellent climate and surrounded by evergreen trees, Many Beach is a wonderful seaside destination. Manly is connected with the centre of Sydney by road and also by excellent ferry services. Fast ferries operate in the morning and the evening and take 15 minutes while the iconic Manly ferry leaves regularly from early morning through to past midnight and takes 30 minutes. Both services go past the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House as they ply their way to and from Manly. Manly feels like a fun, somewhat bohemian and relaxed village. It has too many restaurants and bars to list, a fabulous national park to explore (Sydney Harbour National Park) and a fabulous foreshore walk which extends all the way to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Manly provides a great base from which to explore greater Sydney while enjoying the city's best beaches - both Harbour (and therefore flat water) and surf beaches. Our home is 30 metres from one of these and 500 metres from the other! While Manly attracts many tourists, it is a functioning village within Sydney and has succeeded in not becoming overwhelmed by tourists. Residents welcome the influx of visitors throughout the year and continue about their lives, conscious of how lucky they are to call this wonderful place home! Manly provides great places to hike, to swim and also to snorkel and dive. The snorkelling on the beach in front of our house is fabulous with varied sea life and lots of fish. In winter the whales come into the Harbour and cavort around the bay area. You can hire sea kayaks or bicycles from locations in the village to explore the area. Hard as it is to imagine, there is more to see in Sydney and there are places to rent a car in Manly to take you to the wineries of the Hunter Valley the Blue Mountains or around Sydney itself.
