Fantastic and Fabulous at Freshwater

  • 5 of 5

Once you have stayed in this apartment you will be spoilt for anywhere else! My family of four (mum, dad and boys 19 & 14) have just returned from a weeks stay at this property and we all left extremely reluctantly! It is a beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment with everything provided that you could possibly need during your stay. The location is perfect and there is certainly no need to have a car here as there is so much available nearby. Just lie back on the gorgeous daybed on the huge balcony and relax........Fiona is an excellent landlord and all communication was swift and helpful. We would definitely hire this apartment again and highly recommend it.

Fantastic beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Fiona's beach rental. We have stayed at lots of places around the world and this is one of the best! The apartment has everything you need included and the location was perfect. Nothing like walking out the front door with just your keys and towel to go for a swim. Highly recommend this property

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of four including 17 and 15 yr old sons have just spent a week at "On the Beach". We couldn't have chosen a better apartment and location for a Sydney holiday. The apartment has all you could want, not to mention the stunning beach view. We decided not to hire a car but use public transport, the bus is 2 minutes walk from the front door, it's a quick trip into Manly and onto the ferry and 15 minutes the other way to Warringah Mall to see a movie or do some shopping. Or you can walk to Manly quite easily straight over the hill. We got our major shop via Coles online and then just bought bits and pieces from the local supermarket which is about a 10 minute walk away. Freshwater Village has some lovely shops to browse, and particularly enjoyed the sourdough loaves each morning from Mrs. Jones. We were in the surf or swimming pool every day and had lots of fun on the boogie boards. What a great break after a busy year - thanks Fiona.
