We are a retired couple with many years of world travelling.

When we travel we have always preferred to savour the local produce and to be able to prepare and cook our own meals.

We also like to eat out after a long day sight seeing so to have restaurants close by as well as public transport is also important.

Everything we provide in our Garden Flat is geared to make your stay comfortable with a minimum of fuss.

We want you to enjoy your stay in our beautiful city of Sydney, in the knowledge that you will be residing in a quiet and very safe abode.

Just as we search for on our travels.

Pamela purchased this bungalow in 2010

The property is low maintenance as well as being light bright and comfortable.

Our suburb of Freshwater is very safe for tourists with lots of local arts and craft features as well as cultural experiences at the local parks and beaches.

Manly our famous neighbour has regular markets with antique and craft influences.

Farmer fresh food markets are held during the week as well as the weekends.

We are close to local sporting fields and walking and bike riding tracks.

From Sydney Harbour you can go whale watching, visit the Opera House, travel to Sydney by harbour ferry with the locals travelling to Sydney CBD for a days work or shopping.

The local beaches are famously safe for surfers and swimmers with all day surf life saving patrols in case of emergencies.

We stayed for two months in this peaceful place and we felt at home.
The apartment is very comfortable and cosy. We had all the equipment we needed.
Pam and Ross were friendly, helpful, warm but also very discrete.
We will come back soon for another month in April.

Lucky Us

  • Submitted: Mar 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Lucky us, we found the perfect place to spend our three weeks holiday in Sydney.
A warm welcome and the hep at any time from our hosts Pam Ross made us very quickly feel at home and we enjoyed the short and longer talks and all the information.
The apartment had all the equipment we needed, even internet. The nice garden and access to the swimming pool were a very nice hideaway after a day in town.
Thank you very much, Pam and Ross, we will always keep the time at your " hidden paradise" as a very good memory.

20 min walking to Curl Curl, 10 min Bus to Manly Ferry, very nice bungalow in a luxurious vegetation! Corinna and I stayed 3 weeks and we recommend warmly this accommodation. Thank you Pam and Ross for your extreme kindness.
Owner's Response: Thank you Chris and Corinna, it was a pleasure to have you as our guests.
We were happy that you found the beauty of our home, garden and the suburb of Freshwater so invigorating.
Your enthusiasm for the beaches and headland walks, trips to the city by Manly Ferry and Opera House visits for shows and concerts for the Sydney Festival, I am sure made a lasting impression.
Thank you once more,

Pam and Ross

I found Pam and Ross's place to be more than I could ever expect.
I felt welcome, comfortable and relaxed.
The flat has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
I especially enjoyed the fresh coffee I could make each morning using the pod coffee maker supplied in the flat.
This was my second visit and I have already recommended friends to book for next year.
I will return again.

Freshwater is a suburb of the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

The area of Freshwater was one of the earliest established suburbs of Sydney. The suburb was the holiday destination for the inner city residents, as it was just a ferry trip from Sydney to Manly and then to Freshwater. A lot of the original holidaymakers made Freshwater their family home, as my family did over 100 years ago.

A local shuttle service is available from the International Airport of Mascot. Or from the airport, catch the train to Circular Quay and catch a Harbour Ferry to Manly and then catch a bus or take a cab to Freshwater (about 3 to 4 kilometres).

The rental is less than 1 kilometre from the surf beaches of Curl Curl, Freshwater, Manly and many more. The surf beaches are beautifully natural with lovely sand, rock pools for public swimming and walkways skirting the waterfront for kilometres.

Also close by are sporting fields for netball, soccer, cricket, tennis, golf, lawn bowling clubs and a lot more.

Warringah Mall shopping centre is also near the rental, the largest shopping centre in Sydney. Within the shopping centre is also a Hoyts Cinema centre showing the latest movies.

Public bus service directly to the city CBD by express bus is less than 1 minute away and the bus to Manly is only 5 minutes from the address.

Local fitness centres and yoga classes are less than 3 minutes walk away and a local park is across the road and leads straight to the beach.

We have the option of many local restaurants: Thai, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Vegetarian, most offering home delivery service or phone and pickup.

We have local shops within walking distance: green grocer, butcher, baker, award winning coffee shops, newsagent, chemist, fish and chip and take away fast food and liquor shop.
