5 stars isn’t enough for this fantastic apartment and wonderful host. I really can’t say enough great things about it. The apartment is in a great location, close to the wharf for ferries to Sydney and very near to the beautiful beaches of Manly. Just outside are a selection of shops and restaurants in the great location of Manly. The apartment is clean and has everything you could need. I’m sure if there is something you need that isn’t here, Kirsti will do her very best to find it for you. Kirsti goes above and beyond what is expected to ensure you have the very best stay. We travelled with our 10 month old and after a very long flight we were welcomed with an early check in. Kirsti provided a travel cot and high chair and checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed. She has been great during our stay and responded quickly to any questions we have. She has even been kind enough to let us have a much later check out.
We can highly recommend this apartment as a great place to stay. Thank you Kirsti for your wonderful hospitality.
My Wife and I [visiting from the UK] stayed in the apartment after spending a week with our son nearby. Kirsti was brilliant keeping us updated prior to our trip and meeting us at the apartment at the agreed time. We were also allowed to leave later in the day a week later as our flight wasn’t until late in the afternoon.
The apartment is clean and nicely done to a very good standard. It is the perfect size with a comfy bed, air conditioning [which isn’t noisy], a small kitchen with worktop, toaster and everything you would need if you wanted to cook as well as having a nice sized bathroom. Kirsti also provided everything you would need from; tea and coffee, spare toiletries, bin bags, washing up liquid, laundry liquid – I could go on. There were even beach towels and a parasol for us to use. Absolutely perfect.
The apartment is in a secure building requiring swipe access to get in and also to use the lift going up. Location wise; it’s a two-minute walk to the beach and the same to the ferry. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, not too close, with a nice bakery around the corner and shops for food and goods.
There is a roof-top pool [small] and a jacuzzi plus a small gym which, although I didn't use it, seemed to have all you would need to maintain your fitness on holiday. We did use the pool though and the area it is located in to relax in the afternoon, totally undisturbed. We also used the laundry room which was ideal as well for a quick catch up on washing.
Location-wise it is perfect to visit surrounding towns using the bus service which, when we went, seemed to run like clockwork and to use the ferry to cross to Sydney itself.
Would we use the apartment again? For sure!
I really loved my stay in Kirstis apartment. Location can´t be better, it´s a very short walk away from Corso and all those beautiful beaches in Manly, but still the flat is peaceful.
The flat was remarkably tidy and very comfortable. There is everything you need during your stay.
Kirsti takes care of you and everything else very exceptional smoothly and friendly way. And you can be sure that whatever you need to ask, she knows the answer. Manly is my favorited beach in Sydney and Kirstis apartment is very, very good palace at stay in Manly!
Clean, tidy, all on the level to the shops and ferry, very convenient for shops and the wharf and the beautiful beaches.. The air conditioning could have been more effective - but that was a minor problem.
This small studio is perfect for anyone wanting to make the most out of their Manly holiday. Me and my husband just came back from a 1-month long stay at Manly Nook and we had a wonderful time! The studio is small, but has all the essentials - even detergent! There is also a shared laundry room on the same floor, remember to save up on those $1 coins before using it as it's the only coin the machines will accept. Really convenient to have that service though, it helps when staying for longer periods.
Furthermore, Kirsti is a wonderful landlady and made everything super smooth for us. Everything from check in to check out just worked flawlessly and I strongly recommend this studio for anyone looking for a small place to stay in the middle of Manly - just a few minutes to the beach and everything else Manly has to offer!
