“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.
