Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The photo shows the actual view from the living area and balcony of this fully furnished one bedroom apartment. Air conditioning, high-speed internet, 42 inch TV with movie library, fully equipped kitchen, and a separate bedroom with a queen bed make this the perfect holiday abode. The top (ninth) floor location is quiet, yet you are only footsteps away to the beach, Corso, shopping, restaurants and the ferry to the city.
The apartment offers an ocean facing balcony and the separate bedroom faces the inner harbour and city. Enjoy natural sunlight in the living area and the bedroom, plus there are beautiful flow-through breezes. The queen size bed has a luxurious pillow top mattress to ensure the perfect night's sleep, and with ample storage space and a built-in wardrobe, you don't need to live out of a suitcase. The adjoining bathroom is spacious and has a shower over the bathtub.
Cafes and restaurants are just metres from your front doorstep. The full sized modern kitchen also provides the option to eat in and enjoy the view from the dining area or the balcony. BBQ facilities (free) are located on the sun-drenched rooftop terrace. Quality crockery, cutlery, glasses and cooking utensils are available for use during your stay. For those of you who enjoy making your own coffee, a Gaggia espresso coffee machine is provided. What better place to sip and enjoy than on your own balcony, with the stunning beach vista before you.

The New South Wales region
Manly is only 17km from the central business district of Sydney and is in the Northern Beaches Region. The average temperature in summer is 18-27°C (65-80°F) and in winter, it is a very pleasant 8-17°C (48-62°F).
Manly is famous for its amazing beaches which stretch from Queenscliff Beach to its north, to South Steyne and the world-renowned Manly Beach itself. The prominent icon that symbolizes the beaches and the ocean of Manly is the Norfolk Island Pine. There are also many rock pools on the 10 minute walk to Shelley Beach and Fairy Bower.
You are a few hundred metres to the ferry terminal for a fun trip across Sydney Harbour to Circular Quay and Sydney's CBD, reaching Sydney attractions such as a vast array of restaurants at Circular Quay, the historic "Rocks" area, the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House in only 15 minutes.

"Brilliant views, all facilities, close to everything, in the centre of Manly"
Being on the top floor of the security building, the view is spectacular from the living area and the balcony out to the ocean and the beaches. There is an equally pleasant view inland and of the inner harbour from the bedroom. This was a real apartment!
Everything was really clean, huge kitchen, and the queen bed in the separate bedroom was terrific. The location is one block back from the beach, and central to everything. Shops, restaurants, bars, beach are all there. Walk outside and the Manly vibe was fantastic. Really a nice relaxed beachy Parisienne feel.
All the features of the apartment worked and having our own Gaggia coffee maker and high speed internet was a bonus. The air con was quiet and effective.
Shelly Beach can be seen from the balcony and we met some super keen ocean swimmers who swim from Manly beach to Shelly beach every morning. Apparently the snorkelling at Shelly Beach and the fish life is fantastic. We will try this next time.
The apartments for rent in the Manly National Building are all different so do ensure you speak to the owner, check you will be getting the actual apartment advertised. They all have different catchy names.
We were very happy with "Manly Seaside Bliss".
