A glass of wine on the verandah at sunset evokes images of a resort island. Reading your favourite book and an afternoon siesta, or even a spa treatment at one of the many local salons could be your idea of an ideal vacation. A very short 3 min walk away is the saltwater rockpool at Curl Curl beach.

Outstanding
The whole family stayed here recently for six weeks, we would struggle to find fault with the accommodation. Jeeves & Michael were excellent on arrival and throughout. The visit was planned around a commitment I had to teach special surfing skills to local instructors, again Jeeves and Micheal were great with our transportation (many thanks Damien for this and good luck with your ambulance driving qualification). Thanks also to Alison & Deb, the house was always left spotless once you had been and Darren for keeping the grounds pristine. The house is only minutes walk to the Curl Curl and Freshwater beaches, which was perfect when carrying all the training gear. Our children loved the house, games room and pool, there is so much space available it would be hard not to. We will certainly return to The Beach House to stay when we are in the area, hopefully that will not be too long. Best of luck Guys and thanks again !

The perfect house
I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this place, the views are unreal, the place itself is so clean and beautiful, the pool is amazing for those hot summer days and they even have a jacuzzi to enjoy. The pool table kept my brothers and I entertained for hours and the location is great, in between two lovely beaches and away from all the hustle and bustle. It is pure bliss and I wish we had stayed longer, felt very relaxed by the end of the holiday and we will definitely be back.

A spectacular beautiful amazing place
This house was perfectly located between Curl Curl beach and Freshwater beach. Both within easy walking. distance. The views from the house were amazing. The facilities were amazing and the house suited us perfectly as we were two families meeting there from different sides of the world. The house was very well equipped and clean. The pool was perfect and it was lovely to have a jacuzzi. There was plenty of room for all ten of us including two children. Jeeves the hostess was extremely helpful and is a very lovely lady. l would go back tomorrow if I could.

We want to go back!!!!!
This trip was one year in the planning and the making. My niece just recently got married and a whole crew of us Canadians, upon hearing of the engagement, decided to make the amazing trek to Australia for the big day. Planning this vacation involved a lot of moving parts and co-ordinating many details. So, where to stay was of primary concern. With the recommendations of my niece, I focused our search on key areas in/around Sydney to find the most ideal spot for our family of travellers. So many things were on “the must have” list. We needed space for everyone given we were a variety of ages and I wanted everyone to be able to have their own space when needed. I, personally, hoped to have a beach nearby and views that really gave us that full “beautiful Australia” experience as we left our cold Canadian winter behind. We needed to be close to transit access for touring Sydney. We wanted ample parking for my niece and (her now) husband and his family to come and go for wedding planning details and family bbqs all together. A space for two teens to hang out away from adults when they wanted and maybe a detail like a games room or pool. Also, A nice fully stocked kitchen and lots of seating for family. Of course after busy wedding planning/events days or simply days touring around, a cozy bedroom and comfortable bed was an absolute necessity for each one of us. Plus we wanted a fully stocked kitchen. So the search began and that was a lot of criteria to meet. After countless searches and inquiries, I just wasn’t sure I was ever going to find a spot that ticked most of the boxes as I hoped. Then I found Freshwater Beach Living. I reached out to Jeeves and a wonderful communication began immediately and we booked shortly afterwards. Over the months leading up to our trip, any added planning detail or question that I emailed, Jeeves was prompt and beyond helpful. By the time our travel time finally arrived, I was as eager to finally meet Jeeves as I was to get to the house and begin our wonderful vacation. Personally, I can say the house was exactly as we hoped it would be. The delightful tea and sweet treats upon arrival, plus wine, chocolates, fresh flowers, and homemade bath salts were just a few of the ‘little details’ that were a lovely added touch welcome...especially after 25 hours of travel!!!!!! Jeeves and Michael are nearby on site, if needed, but not at all intrusive to your space while you stay. When we arrived I just had to hug Jeeves for all the help she had given leading up to our trip. She also recommended we do a “home shop delivery” from Woolies for our arrival day. So, the week before, I ordered a big grocery delivery to arrive shortly after us which was a great suggestion given we were all tired & jet lagged. That was a terrific suggestion. We stayed at the house 2 1/2 weeks and I wish we could have stayed 2 1/2 weeks more. It is big and comfortable, the kitchen is filled with every last little item you might ever need...and then more. The pool and spa, the pool house, decks (yes multiple decks) and views...ahhhhhthe the views, everything was lovely. Our first night back home I told my husband, “I can’t sleep...there’s no open window and sounds of the ocean.” The beautiful paintings and beach motif through out the home just adds to your beach get away feel. It is a quiet, peaceful, end of a local access only, street. Perfect at the end of a busy day to unwind. Choosing Freshwater was a beautiful choice. There is local bus transit just steps away. You can bus or walk to Manly to ferry across to Sydney either on a leisurely ferry or the Manly Fast Ferry. While you have close access to sight seeing and touring in/around Sydney, there’s so much beauty to be enjoyed right outside your door. The house is nestled right between Curl Curl Beach and Freshwater Beach. The Curl Curl boardwalk is just steps away and it is gorgeous, spectacular, breath-taking. Well, you get what I’m saying. It is a beautiful place for a daily walk while you feel the ocean breeze and listen to the waves. You can walk to cafes and restaurants or shops. Oh and yes, if you don’t feel like bbq’ing on the beautiful deck or cooking in the ample kitchen, you want to order take away. Jeeves will recommend things to you, including her suggestions of the best dishes to get. (Thank you Jeeves, our last night’s take away meal was amazing by the way!!!) I could go on & on and I know as soon as I wrap up this review I’ll think, I should have noted this or I should have mentioned that. My best suggestion to you is just go...you will be happy you did. It will be a home away from home while you explore all that beautiful Sydney has to offer. We hope to return one day ourselves. Thank you Jeeves and Michael for helping to add to our vacation memories. Thank you to your lovely girls for their homemade bath salts and soy candles that I bought on our last day. I enjoy them now here at home and think of Freshie!!!! We hope to soon you again.

Mrs
Our family (including a baby) stayed here for 5 weeks. What can I say really other than it was perfect. The house and views are even better than the pictures and the owners were just lovely. They were there if needed for advise (best Chinese takeaway 😂) but totally left us to our own thing otherwise. We were greeted with gifts for my children and a hamper on arrival (after a 24 hour flight was much appreciated) and best of all wine! The house itself has an amazing kitchen and everything you would ever need for cooking, comfy beds (chocolates on the bed on arrival was a particular favourite for my daughter) plenty of towels, candle in the master bedroom the list goes on. Freshwater is a perfect location to experience Australia’s northern beaches whilst also 5 mins from manly to pop on the ferry (a amazing experience in its self) for 20 mins into Sydney and all the sights it has to offer. You can practically touch the beach so we went for a walk along the boardwalk for coffee each morning at the beach cafe and in the evening 2 mins down the road is a new restaurant complex which has a choice of foods perfect for a fussy 4 year old (not fast food - the Italian restaurant there is a branch of the acclaimed Pilu restaurant). Freshwater itself is very expensive area to buy houses etc so to be able to rent somewhere here for a few weeks has been an absolute privalage. We are just trying to plan how we can come back!

Perfect beach house- gorgeous views, amazing location
We stayed here for nearly 5 months from July 2018 (2 adults, 3 kids) and didn't want to leave. The house is just beautiful - wonderfully appointed with high quality beds and bedding, fully equipped kitchen (best I've ever seen in terms of cooking and entertaining supplies), lovely open spaces for families to gather and quieter rooms to work or relax. Every room has stunning views of the ocean - you can spend days just looking out of the windows. The design of the house is brilliant - huge outdoor spaces to eat, read and relax to make the most of the weather. And the pool, hot tub and pool house are fabulous relatively recent additions. The location of the house is perfect for beach-lovers - 2 world-class beaches within 5 minutes' walk of the house, plus a boardwalk between them along the cliffs from which we saw whales and dolphins up close. There are good coffee shops and a couple of good restaurants within walking distance, and a huge range of restaurants 10 minutes by car away in Manly. It's easy (and a treat) to get to the city using the Manly ferry. Jeeves and Michael are the kindest hosts, and did so much for us while we were in Freshie. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Amazing!
This house has been furnished 5 star to match the 5 star views! Sparking ocean views and north east aspect, so you can soak up the sun even on a cooler day. We had an awesome stay, so many different zones so people didn’t get underfoot (especially the kids) and great Spaces to eat together, play pool or hang out in the sun. Doesn’t get much better! We’ll be back!

Absolute Luxury with the WOW Factor.
Freshwater Beach Living is the ultimate for a relaxing holiday and we are return guests and will continue to be. You could not ask for more, from the amenities offered- including refreshment drinks on arrival, together with all those yummy sweets, ease of booking and most of all our wonderful hosts, Jeeves and Michael who genuinely ensure that you have all you need for a wonderful break. Not to forget the wonderful views out to sea, with the cruise ships in the distance, as well as over the beaches, as you sit upstairs on the balcony to enjoy a wine to cap off your day. It is so spacious that our family could always retreat to somewhere quiet if they wished. The pool/games room, pool, spa and lounge chairs around the pool were well used. The walks along Curl Curl beach foreshore is a must and then a coffee on the way back. Also, an easy walk to Freshwater Village which we did often, as this has a village feel and definitely not like a suburb as elsewhere in Sydney. And not to forget the easy walk to Manly. We will return again and thank-you to our wonderful hosts for such a wonderful time you allowed our family to have.

The best of both worlds
What a beautiful place! Wehad the beauty of the beaches and coastline at our doorstep and yet we are in Sydney. The view is sensational....you totally forget that you are even in the city. Very spacious rooms and the way the owners have styled this stunning home, you instantly relax as soon as you walk in. Ideal for families as there is so much to do ie: pool, hot tub, games room etc. We will back.

Faultless
We booked Freshwater living based on reviews but also after chatting to locals for a second opinion. My husband and I had family visiting Australia & needed a comfortable place for them to stay two weeks. You know hospitality runs in the veins of these operators when nothing is too much trouble. It seems going the extra mile to assure comfort is of the essence. It's the little things and attention to detail when you're away from home that is appreciated. THANK YOU to the freshwater living team who looked after our family's stay so well! We look forward to re booking annually!
