Our home is in the safest area in Sydney! We are in a quiet, beautiful residential street 300 meters from gorgeous sydney beaches where you can laze, surf, swim, fish or stroll. We are even closer to cafes with some of the best coffee in Sydney. A prestige golf course (long reef)and tennis courts less than a 5 minute walk from our front door.There are beautiful coastal walks that begin a few minutes walk away at our local headland. There is a variety of shops including supermarket,bakery, ATM, cinema, newsagent, pharmacy, surfshop, restaurants, beautician etc. within a 5 minute walk so everything really is at your fingertips! The 2 main shopping centres (really big) as well as the hub of Manly are only a few minutes on the bus that runs from (literally!) around the corner of our home. Trips into the centre of Sydney are best taken by the express bus that leaves from the same stop. It takes 35 minutes to the centre of the city and it is a pleasant journey with plenty to see on the way. We are not including the garage or the car in this exchange as the public transport is so close and so good. Sydney is an amazing holiday destination and this is a great place to either do nothing or do everything! Our outdoor area is used all year round - it gets the beautiful sinshine even in winter! In summer the beach is fabulous and the pool and spa are an all- day/night attraction.
We are a family of 6 - 2 adults (Alan and Michelle) and 4 children ages 14,12,9 and 5. We love living here! It is incredibly safe and beautiful with heaps to do. We surf, swim, walk, eat out (and occassionally play golf) locally all year round. We are specifically looking to travel to Canada for a white Christmas (to ski) in December/Jan 2007/8. Please contact us for further details - we would love to be of help. Our children are accustomed to travel and used to taking care of other peoples posessions - they are well behaved and considerate! Look forward to hearing from you.
