Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sails for 2 weeks and had the most amazing time. The house is of excellent quality and incredibly comfortable, with ample space for the entire family, both indoors and outdoors. The views are absolutely stunning, with the most spectacular sunsets. The kitchen is very well equipped. There was ample heating options for a winter stay, with electric blankets in all bedrooms for that bit of additional comfort. It's a very peaceful location where it feels like you are away from everything, yet it's very close to Manly. The owners were a delight to interact with and made everything so easy for us......thanks so much and we hope to be back again!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at sails - it is in a fantastic location - quiet and peaceful away for the hectic hustle and bustle of Sydney and its traffic. Spacious and with the most beautiful views. You definitely need a car if staying here but there are lots of great things to do locally.

The house has a wonderful view, that is no doubt and outstanding. It has directly access to the Sydney houbour water. We had a gorgious experience there. Everybody is happy. This was a very special place which exceed normal luxious hotels. Could be a very different experience and keeps a discuss issue with us for a long time. We will never forget this place in our life. It is so special compare with a lot of hotels we had stayed. Although the price is a bit expensive, but in our case, we think it worth it. Thanks the owner, I believe they take a lot work to make the house like this.

  • 5 of 5

Sails Waterfront location is perfect for a relaxing stay in Sydney. The views of middle harbour are stunning especially at sunset. This propety certainly enables you to get a way from it all and relax but at the same time it's not too far away from the city to allow you to enjoy all that it has to offer. Sails Waterfront has several balcony's on different levels to relax on and absorb the stunning waterfront views and lush bushland. My favourite was to go down to the boat shed and relax in the hammock whilst sipping a cold glass of wine. Sails Waterfront is a spacious well planned and beautifully furnished property and provides everything needed for a stress free holiday. Kayaks are available and an early morning kayak around the harbour is amazing. We highly recommend Sail Waterfront and we hope to return soon. Thanks.

  • 5 of 5

Sails is a really beautiful property, lovely furnishings a brand new kitchen and has everything you need and much more. We loved our short stay and the views and location are simply magical. We had one of the most stunning red sunsets across the harbour. Kids loved the boatshed especially the hammock, playing on the kayak and even caught fish. We highly recommend it, so relaxing, just wish we could have stayed longer. Many thanks
