“Just Fantastic” This being our first visit to Australia - What more could you ask for? Rangers Cottage is like a home away from home being well appointed with all mod cons. Lovely location with a gorgeous walk from your door step into Manly. The hosts Felicity and David are great people who are more than willing to help make your stay even better. We would certainly recommend this Cottage and would definitely stay here again. As far as we are concerned Rangers Cottage is quality and value for money. The weather was also very good.
Keep up the good work, Flick.
Back to Sydney weekend - what better place to stay?
Lobbed into the cottage early on Friday afternoon for a long weekend with my wife and 6 year old son. Having lived in Manly, Sydney for many years, I thought this would be the same old, same old. But not so. I used to run past this cottage for years when I went for my daily run and never noticed it. It's easy to miss, but certainly a pleasure to stay.
The location of the cottage and its layout, are tremendous. Enough room for three, close to the cafe around the corner (which opens after 7am...no good if you are an early riser - but there are alternatives), beach down the hill, park near the cafe, walk to Manly ferry is 20 mins (about 17 mins in the rain) and the bush walk around Dobroyd Point is right there. For me, it is perfect.
Inside the cottage, everything was made available. This is the first time I have stayed somewhere where simple things like salt, pepper, oil, alfoil, etc. are available and I don't have to go out and buy it all, only to ditch it/eat it in the last remaining minutes of the weekend. This, in itself, is a great advantage. Everything else there was great. It has a heater, comfy sofa bed, quiet bedroom, clean bathroom, functional kitchen, wifi, and nice outdoor setting (even though it rained most of the time).
I will stay again, and would recommend it to my friends (the better ones that is...I would like to spare the cottage from their party instincts and nocturnal activities).
Great spot, quiet and clean. Hard to find this combination in the modern era.
