About the property

Beautiful, private & quiet garden studio apartment with stunning harbour views as seen in the pictures. Plantation shutters, romantic sheer curtains and stylish furnishings set the scene for a perfect beach holiday. Ideal 1 or 2 people for a relaxing harbour side holiday.

Enjoy a bbq while taking in the views of Manly, the ferry and boating on the harbour. Take the steps adjacent to the property down to picturesque Forty Baskets beach, a sandy and safe harbour beach with enclosed swimming pool, jetty, rock pools, picnic and bbq area.

Situated only 40 meters from Forty Baskets Beach, the views are spectacular day and evening.

The location is peaceful yet it is only 5 minutes drive to Manly and 30 minutes to the CBD. A cafe which serves great coffee, breakfast and lunch is about 10 minutes walk through the bush reserve.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio was exactly as per the photos with a clear view of the water and boats. It was very private and separate from the main house which was perfect for my husband and I. We felt like we were staying on a piece of paradise with 3mins excess to the beach from a small walkway beside the house. We will definitely recommend it and will be back.

Jan, the owner, was also very helpful and friendly. She prepared some essentials for our stay like coffee, milk and wine. Thank you so much Jan!

Beautiful stay in Sydney

  • 5 of 5

Forty Basket Beach is our favourite repeat retreat for a beach holiday in Sydney. This visit we stayed in the Studio which is totally self contained with fridge and microwave. The studio is beautifully appointed with great attention to detail and a wonderful view of the harbour and across to Manly.

It has direct access to foreshore walks, the lovely beach below and is only 5 minutes drive to Manly and the ferry link to Sydney's city centre.

We were so comfortable that it was difficult to leave.

Thank you Jan for being the perfect host.

We will be back soon.

A gorgeous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Tasteful, light, luxuriously furnished and with that wonderful view, not just from the sofa but also from the superbly comfortable bed. My husband and I loved our stay - it is such a picturesque spot. We walked into Manly each day along the beach path, but spent much of our time in the studio with the doors open to the lawn. Can't recommend it highly enough!
