Manly Sunshine Cottage

Manly Vale NSW, Australia
  • House775 sq. ft.
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps5
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay1 - 7 nights

Combining the Manly lifestyle with space and tranquillity of an artist retreat, this 2 bedroom cottage is located on the beach/lagoon-side of Manly Vale, only 2Km from the heart of Manly. Perfect for families or couples wanting to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of Manly but without the hustle and bustle.

The cottage is described as a sunshine house, where each room catches the sun providing light and air. It is beautifully decorated with modern and vintage pieces combined to create a comfortable and Vogue style ambience.

You can wake every morning to the peace of a sun drenched garden dispersed by the occasional chatter of birds. While you enjoy your breakfast on the private north facing deck you can plan whether to go for a level walk to the beach or Manly on the cycle path just outside the door, or enjoy the sights of Sydney. If you need to shop and you don't have a car you are only 10 minutes walk from buses to the city and local shopping centres.

The main bedroom has a comfy pillow top queen sized bed with plenty of storage in the built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom has two pillow top long single beds that can easily be combined into a king size bed. The beds are ready made with hotel quality linen and electric blankets so you can put your feet up and have a sleep when you arrive. A sturdy fold-away bed is available to accommodate a 5th person, or if you have a little one, we also have a travel cot.

A fully equipped kitchen means that you can whip up a quick snack or a complete meal. It is stocked with tea, coffee, milk, eggs, cereal, bread and treats so no need to go shopping for that first meal.

Or indulge in an Aussie Barbeque with all the facilities and outside table for great alfresco entertaining.

Enjoy a picnic at a one of Manly's many outdoor attractions with a picnic basket, blanket and thermos.

If you need to check you emails or upload your holiday photos to Facebook, use the free wireless broadband. Otherwise, relax watching Netflix or viewing your photos through Apple TV on the 40" TV.

If the beach is too cold but you still want a swim, the 50 metre Manly Swim Centre pool is only a 5 minute walk away.

If you want to hit the green there are Manly, Warringah, Balgowlah and Wakehurst Golf clubs all within a few minutes drive.

Property Layout

Manly Sunshine Cottage is on a large secure property of two cottages, occupying the rear half of the property. You can see the layout of the property in the photograph images.

Security of the cottage is assured with the owners occupying the front cottage, and at hand to help you with any enquiries for local restaurants, shopping or activities.

The rear garden is your private retreat with a compost and veggie garden shared with the owners. If you have young ones the garden is secure with gates either side of the cottage providing a worry free environment for your children to explore while you relax on the deck.

Unrestricted parking is available on the street outside the cottage, so no jostling for car spaces. A loading bay is a flat 5 metres from the door allowing you to unpack and pack your luggage without hassle.

If you are having more than a holiday then please enquire about discounts for executive and extended stays.

                                                            Peta B.

                                                            We loved our stay at Sunshine cottage. Had everything we needed, close to shops and local facilities and a quick Uber to Manly wharf to catch the ferry.

                                                            Our kids loved being in a home environment and having outdoor space to play in was great.

                                                            Wonderful property!

                                                            We had a marvellous stay. The house is extremely well equipped, beautifully decorated and in a peaceful location with eastbound access to Manly and Sydney by foot and public transport . Fantastic!

                                                            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were very helpful. Lovely quiet road. Had to get bus to Manly ferry every day but free bus service

                                                            A wonderful Sydney getaway!

                                                            My family and I loved our stay in the Manly Sunshine Cottage. It was beautifully decorated, well-stocked with quality items, and was very comfortable for 3 adults and 2 children. Our hosts were very kind and friendly, but the cottage was private enough that we felt at home the whole week. Looking forward to another visit in the future!

                                                            A great location for exploring Sydney

                                                            We had a great stay in Manly and the cottage was ideally situated for visiting Sydney. Clive and Therese were very welcoming and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. They were always there to help and gave us some good tips on transport and places to go. The cottage was ideal for our party of 5 and it was very comfortable on our return from a days touring. The local free bus was great and in easy walking distance from the cottage (10 minutes). Manly itself is a lovely place and we enjoyed watching the surf, bmx and skateboard competition. The ferry into Sydney is easy to use and we are really pleased we choose Manly as our base. A fantastic trip to Sydney.

                                                            An apt name for a cosy beautifully located holiday cottage. Very friendly, generous hosts.
