Our place ...

Bedrooms have fans (master has large ceiling fan) and all can be opened wide to outside wrap around balcony (with flyscreen doors).

Main dining kitchen area can be opened right onto balcony giving a feeling of living outdoors, or closed and Air Conditioned. Linen and private car parking space included.
If you have (Apple) iMaps check out the 3d version 48A Queenscliff Rd.
It’s the only 9 floor unit block on the headland directly above the pool (not many places in Australia direct beach access. (Do note: there are natural stairs to the beach)
What other say
"You will be blown away with the location like we were. With only a small number of easily accessible stairs to navigate you are on the sand of Queenscliff before you know it, add to that a 15 minute leisurely stroll along the beach and you are in the heart of Manly. Queenscliff was never crowded. With the choice of ocean or harbour side swimming the options were endless. Your apartment was very comfortable for the four of us, I had my brother and his 2 sons join us one night for a BBQ dinner and easily accommodated 7 of us around the table. Fabulous apartment and beautiful location. Love Manly !"

1) The Great Gatsby Movie (2013): Gatsby's exterior castle scenes were shot at St Patrick's College directly in our line of view sitting on the Manly headland.
2) Queenscliff surf lifesaving club: (below us)
a. This was the studio for Channel Tens Wake up morning show. The view they chose to use as their background was the same we look at 24 hours a day. Our unit block often appeared in the background. Like others do, channel Ten referred to this location as Manly beach, but the reality is its the north end of Manly - Queenscliff beach- right underneath us.
b. In 2015 both the Prime Minister of Australia and the NSW Premier came from our area and both are active members of our Queenscliff surf-club. (seen from our balcony!)
3) Queenscliff is home to several world champion surfers: including the 6X World Woman’s Champion Layne Beachly. Midget Farrelly 1st world champion (1963) . Both regularly surf here.
4) A major ASP surfing title (ASP 6-Star QS Hurley Australian Open of Surfing) is run in the middle of the beach attracting the worlds best surfers.
5) Our beach is known by some as the centre of surfing in Australia with waves from beginners to experts . Surf schools for beginners are at North Steyne (middle of the beach). You can rent also surfboards and stand up paddle boards, bikes and rollerblades, & on the harbour side: kayaks, diving equipment etc.
6) Shelly beach (our view & at the south end of Manly) won the one of Australia’s best beaches. (trip advisor). Shelly and has become popular with Scuba Divers and Snorkelers alike with a large variety of marine life which can viewed in relatively shallow water.
Sydneys famous Northern beaches starts at Manly beach (& North Head, the entrance to Sydney harbour) and extends 30KMs up to Palm Beach with over 15 beaches in between. See this drone video my son made with his friends, surfing and whale watching, stretching from Manly and all the way up the northern beaches.

To speed up the enquiry: We’d love to send you a more detailed info PDF doc about our place. As this is not a commercial property and is our home 10 months of the year we would like to get to know the people who would be staying to ensure compatibility. Since Stayz does not yet have a verification process like Air BNB, we would ask that in your enquiry, you provide us with as much detail as possible so we can self-verify to ensure it is suitable and legitimate. The more you can tell us about who you are (and all guests) and what you are looking for, the faster we can process the enquiry. Please also provide a form of ID (Facebook, Linked-In, Profile page from your company, References etc). (Please note we have reduced our fee this summer, as there is some daytime renovations in the back car park. So this far out, we are not sure of the implications, and if our new garage will be ready in time, so we may not be able to offer off street parking at this stage.)
