Quiet garden setting

  • 5 of 5

A very clean, quiet and modern flat in a lovely poolside, garden setting.

Lots of area outside to sit and read, sunbathe by the pool or just enjoy the flowers.

The unit is set up with all equipment necessary to cater to a couple, or in our case a local family dinner for eight.

Curl Curl beach is 10 - 15 min walk as is the express bus to the city and others to Manly/ferry or up to other northern beaches.

Pam and Ross are gracious hosts and a great source for local knowledge and navigation tips.

We will have no hesitation in returning to or recommending this great spot.

Pamela and Ross are wonderful hosts, helpful but not intrusive.

The cottage is very well fitted out and is extremely comfortable. Has everything needed for a holiday stay.

Excellent accommodation and facilities

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit, having stayed here at the same time in the previous year. The bungalow is well-furnished and is very clean. The living area is very spacious and has a comfortable sofa and flat screen TV, and the kitchen area has a large cooker/oven, a large fridge/freezer and even a washing machine. The double bedroom is slightly on the small side but there is plenty of cupboard/drawer space. The bathroom was more than adequate with an excellent shower. One of the big plus factors is, of course, the pool, which is fenced off for safety reasons. There is plenty of space by the pool to lie in the sun and relax. The owners, Pam and Ross, are friendly, pleasant and helpful. We appreciated the free Wi-Fi. We would not hesitate to recommend the property to other travellers.

 delightful converted barn

  • 4 of 5

The property was attractively built and furnished, and the kitchen was well equipped. Everything looked new and clean. Because of the nature of the building it had a very spacious feel, and was very light with lots of windows, overlooking the well stocked garden. The owners were very kind and helpful. I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative, and I would definitely go back there myself.

Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in a perfect location with the nicest hosts. Private, and quiet with access to the northern beaches and close enough to the city. Highly recommended!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

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 cafs 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.
