Holiday Rental House
(Our house was leased for almost two years, which is why our reviews are not current. However, the same warmth and hospitality is promised! The reviews often speak of us taking tours; we were doing this as part of SYDNEY WITH US but are now just leasing the house and assisting with touring advice if required.) An extremely comfortable bright and airy Sydney home located just a few minutes drive from the beautiful beaches of Manly. The home is an elevated position with leafy views over the district bringing wonderful bird life right to our doors.

About the neighbourhood
Leafy setting close to beaches and park areas. Lots of walking tracks nearby. Birdlife is abundant and comes right to our deck to feed. Allambie Heights village shopping centre with cafes and restaurants is less than 1 km; Warringah Mall - a huge outdoor/indoor centre catering for all shopping needs - is 5 minutes by car. The beautiful beaches of Manly are less than 10 minutes by car. A local bus will take guests to Manly Wharf to connect with the ferry to the city. In morning/evening peak hours, an express bus to the city departs/arrives the corner of our street. The journey to the city at this time is about 35 minutes. There is secure parking for two cars within the property.
