We stayed at Pam and Ross's cottage for 4 weeks July-August 2014. We had relocated from interstate and the cottage was the perfect base while we were looking for somewhere to live. The fully self-contained cottage has an open plan living area with a full kitchen (allowing us to cook for ourselves) plus a separate bedroom and bathroom. There is also a washing machine for sole use within the cottage which is a huge bonus. The coffee pod machine was a lovely touch! The cottage is set in a lovely garden with a swimming pool plus some friendly chickens and is very quiet and peaceful. We arrived quite late in the evening on our first night and were so grateful to Pam and Ross for placing some essentials in the fridge for us.
The property is located in Freshwater on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and has good access to buses to Manly and Warringah Mall. There is also plentiful on street parking. It is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk into Freshwater village which has a supermarket, post office, pharmacy and several cafés and gift shops.
The property had everything we needed and more, and would highly recommend it to those who wish to stay in a quiet, self-contained location but with good proximity to all that Sydney has to offer.
