Manly Beach Retreat at Fairy Bower is just a few minutes from some of the most spectacular swimming and surfing beaches in the world. It is a short beachside stroll to the famous ice-cream coloured shopping strip at Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Truly blessed with a sheltered beach and aquatic reserve offering excellent snorkelling and diving.

Spend the day swimming, browsing the local market or eating out at one of the many restaurants in Manly or just relax on the large, covered verandah where ocean breezes beckon and the scent of frangipani fills the summer air. Delicious afternoon teas and cakes can be served there by the owner Alisa.

The property sleeps two people and is perfect for a romantic stay or for a Bride to be. The Retreat is in easy walking distance to the wharf and the famous Manly to City ferry ride across Sydney Harbour.

What a very special place. We have had the most wonderful eight days – our best ever in Sydney. With our greatest stress being whether to swim in the pool at Shelly beach or body surf the waves at Manly – Wonderful! Lunch at The Bower and beautiful evenings outside by the flowering frangipanis. Thank you Alisa.” (Polly 19/01/2014)

Absolutely loved our stay at the Retreat and cannot wait to go back. Everything was perfect, the location, the weather, the accommodation was just beautiful. And Alisa could not have been more helpful and friendly. Three nights was nowhere near long enough. We have already recommended the Retreat to friends and look forward to our next visit.” (Kerryn)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The decor is beautiful and the location excellent. We were very comfortable and made to feel most welcome. It is an excellent apartment for entertaining and friends who visited us there will be recommending it to their overseas visitors as a place to stay!” (Hazel)
