About the property


Staying at Freshwater Apartments has long been a tradition for families seeking a quieter Northern Beaches getaway as an alternative to the buzz of world-class Manly Beach. Since the early 1900's, visitors have flocked to Freshwater Beach, where the surfing culture in Australia began.

Thankfully, camping on the beach is now a thing of the past, and Freshwater Apartments provide all the convenience and comforts expected from self-contained apartments in Sydney in the 21st century. These beach-side apartments are conveniently located. Visitors enjoy a short 100 metre walk across the grass reserve to the beach. The 'Calm Cafe' is at your front door and more than ready to serve you your next coffee or meal. The exciting shops in Freshwater village are a short walk up Moore Road.

Come evening, and your entertainment needs can be met at the popular Harbord Hotel, less than a 50 metre walk heading west. A variety of eating establishments can be found in Freshwater Village, only a 200 metre stroll away.

It is just a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by bus or car to Manly, should you dare enter its buzzing rat race. Manly's city centre provides a hub that links visitors to the Sydney CBD with the beautiful Manly ferry, or a direct peak hour bus service to the city, with the world famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

When returning to the Northern Beaches in the evening, the most sought after transportation is a sunset ferry ride, where commuters can marvel at the colourful, picturesque harbour backdrop.

Perfect! Great location, clean, everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Clean and tidy, really well decorated in a cool and colourful vibe. The location is superb - an easy walk to the beach, restaurants, pub, shopping village. The unit has everything you could need and has lots of nice touches. Fan and heater, oil and salt and pepper, laundry powder, nice tea and coffee (including coffee bags) and I especially loved the chocolates left in the fridge. It was a nice surprise. We will definitely stay her again
