Some of our previous guests have made the following comments:-
"A comfortable, clean, functional. light filled apartment with views of Manly Beach and beyond. Short stroll to Manly beach or Freshwater beach. Wonderful 5 min bike ride down the Esplanade to The Corso and Manly Wharf. It has the best equipped kitchen I've ever experienced in holiday accommodation; important for all who like to cook. The big comfortable dining table made it possible for our family to enjoy home cooked meals, complete school homework and use the laptop. The care and kindness shown by the property owner was impeccable. They provided complimentary "extras" which we never expected; breakfast supplies, chocolates and champagne! :) as well as those helpful little things like sticky tape, glad wrap, ice, spices etc. We've come home refreshed, happy and looking forward to our next visit to beautiful Manly.
"We are a family of four who stayed at Manly Beach Pad for a month in October 2014. The apartment was perfect for us; spacious, well equipped, nice building, quiet neighbourhood and beautiful views over Manly beach.
Lisa was really helpful and great to communicate with both before and during our stay.
Manly is the best place to stay if you want to enjoy the beach and Sydney, and this apartment on Queenscliff has a perfect location. There is no need for a car as you can walk or take the bus (and the ferry to the city) every where you like to go. The Manly Bach pad was good value and comes highly recommended.
"Lisa was an absolute pleasure to deal with and if we have overseas guests I will have no hesitation in contacting her again. The flat was neat and tidy, well positioned opposite the cafe and a short walk to either Manly or Freshwater beaches. We rented her place for relatives for our wedding and she even sent a quick email on our wedding day to wish us luck. It is the little things !
"Lisa is a fabulous host : Perfect accommodation for a family, very safe and clean (we are a family with 1 children 3yo and 2 twin babies). Lisa bought a cot for us before our arrival !
Lisa came to help us to bring our luggage the day of our arrival. We appreciated a lot because we were very loaded.
Good to know : there are two bus lines which pass near of the accommodation (lines 136 and 139), and which go to the wharf. Very useful with 2 trolleys !
Manly is a great place with children, we spent an unforgettable time there... thanks to Lisa !
"My twin brother Dallas and I were in Sydney for our photo exhibition at the Painters Gallery in Manly.We were lucky to find such suitable accommodation at Lisa's Beach Pad apartment in Queenscliff, within comfortable walking distance of the Gallery. The apartment was very clean, well appointed, included parking and had a great view.
Lisa went out of her way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay and to our surprise also bought friends to view our exhibition. We would highly recommend her Beach Pad to families or couples wishing to holiday in the Manly area. (email hidden) (website hidden)
"My wife and I, with our children aged 4 and 1, can recommend Lisa's pad. Its short distance to Freshwater and stroll to the Corso made it a great spot for the kids to choose which beach they wanted to play on. Have no fear of the flights of stairs down to the Manly promenade - we mastered them all even with a pram and filled grocery bags! Furthermore, her pad was adequately furnished for a family that included carpeted floors and bedrooms separated by a good-sized bathroom (with a bathtub) making our 14 night stay a comfortable and memorable one. Take my advice, go down to Freshwater Beach with its wide beach because it was a play haven for my children.
