About Jarmo Roenneberg

Me and my wife are semiretired babyboomers. Holiday accommodation activity gives us a great opportunity to meet and serve new people, often from most fascinating and exciting backgrounds.

Why Jarmo Roenneberg chose Sydney

Firstly the location: The apartment is close to all the best Manly has to offer including shopping, restaurants, the beach, and easy transport to central Sydney.

Secondly stunning views from the apartment - the apartment wide spectacular ocean panorama over Manly Ocean beach.

Obviously in our age we were also looking ease-of-access and safety aspects of the building; there is level entry into the building and the lift - no steps from the street to the apartment! The building is in a security building with 24/7 CCTV monitoring and electronic key entry system.

What makes this apartment unique

No need to have a car to explore everything what Sydney offers in one of the most beautiful locations in Australia.

Guestbook comments from the manager

'Being thousands of miles it is somewhat of a daunting task to book an accommodation other than from a hotel chain and I was very fortunate to have stumbled across your listing. From the emails we first exchanged until the time of our departure I could not have asked for a better experience. The accommodations provided were accurately described, fully equipped and very well maintained. The views from the unit are spectacular and the building is conveniently located to numerous restaurants, shops and wonderful beaches Manly & Shelly. I look forward to our next visit, thank you so very much. Patrick’

'I thought I would just write to say thank you very much for being so accommodating to us. We very much enjoyed our time staying at your apartments. We thought they were very well appointed. I don't think we have ever stayed in an apartment where everything was so well thought out. Thanks once again - it was lovely. Kate'

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

For my first ever visit to Australia, I was looking for somewhere to use as a base for a month, somewhere not to busy but then not too far from main attractions either. I found this apartment on a google search, it was one of the first I found so I went for it. It looked good, the view was amazing so why not. Well it did not disappoint, the owner was first class, he answered every email within 24 hours even allowing for the huge time difference. I had many questions, this was a big deal for me, long holiday this being just a short part of an 8 week world tour. When we arrived, the owner was waiting right outside with keys in hand just as he had promised,everything was exactly as we expected. when I walked into the flat, it was just like the pictures had been taken that very day. The view across Manly beach was picture postcard perfect,with the window open we could hear the waves on the beach. Sydney city centre just a short exciting ferry ride away we had a terrific time here. Take the slow ferry, just 30 minutes & you never have to wait long for the next one, take in all the views. If you are in a hurry the 15 minute catamaran is an option but why rush. Buy the weekly ticket that gets you all ferries, buses locally, you will be on & off ferries all day if you want. Go to Darling harbour, the Zoo, Blue Mountains. To be honest we did not spend that much time in the flat, but you will not be wanting for anything, there was more equipment in this flat than I have at home. There was tea, coffee & milk fresh waiting for us on a arrival, convenience store just across the road & a 5 to 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal. Yes I would recommend this flat to anyone, a week or a month as we did you will not be sorry. The laundry facilities are on the roof with such spectacular views you can sunbathe up there, have a barbecue, just so much good about it. There is plenty to do in Manly you do not need to go anywhere else but why not explore. There are free bus services that take you to outlying areas. You can take in some amazing country walks. The views over Sydney harbour cannot be imagined, even my photographs do not do it justice. Yes I would go back, I do not have plans to do so just yet, I've only just got back to the UK. When I do I know where I will be going.

Home in Manly

  • 5 of 5

I am a regular visitor to Manly and I am always pleased with the unit and its owners who are ready to help you and provide what they can. The unit is maintained once a week (all linen and there is lots including beach towels) and the unit itself, during the week, it is easy for you to maintain. You will be comfortable with two. There is wifi and always enough broadband and gigs for me. The view is incredible and you will wake up with the sun rising on the horizon. Lots of coffee shops near by, fast food, nice restos all in walking and pleasant distance. Take the bike(s ) along the beach or up the peninsula, lots of beaches ready available.

The building itself is fine, the unit is on the 9th floor, the tenth holds the laundry etc.. It is a block and 1//2 from the beach and the Corso.

I always feel home whenever I return.

Nearby activities are all walkable or if you want to go visit Sydney, the ferry is an easy and beautiful way to go.

Best Sunrise You Will See!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here.

Apartment is lovely , comfortable and very clean.

Unlimited wifi was a great boon.

BBQ and sun deck on roof was good fun..didn't use the pool but it was there.

When we arrived there was a supply of tea and coffee, milk, soaps, washing powder , olive oil , salt and pepper and other minor items. This sounds like a wee thing, but it was great not to have to arrive and trail out to a supermarket and buy a load of stuff that gets half-used.

The view of the ocean and all the surfers and swimmers was a delight. Sunrise is fabulous.

Location was great , surrounded by cafés and restaurants and bars .( try the Artichoke cafe across the street.

Building is clean and well managed.

Manly review

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was as described and contained everything needed to feel at home e.g. Wifi, coffee maker, TV, dishwasher, parking space (if needed), fridge etc. Also has fantastic views and rooftop for barbecues .

Was right in the heart of Manly with easy access to shops, restaurants, bars and ferry to Sydney.

Would recommend to any one and hope to return for another stay in future.

Enjoy Manly

  • 4 of 5

Out stays, yes, we have been back three times to Central Ave, all visits have been very pleasant. The suite feels like home, everything clean and fresh. The views are amazing , and very close to the beautiful surf beach and any shopping you desire. Many lovely bistros, bars and exceptional food offerings in the area. Cycling in the area is exceptional, with many trails and parks to explore. Manly is our favourite place to visit! We will be back. Cant wait to go boogie boarding again!

An amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

After a short business trip to NZ I decided to stop over for 4 days in Sydney. Finding accommodation was a challenge at short notice until I stumbled across this place. Too busy to look at the pictures -I was just happy to find a room, it was a huge surprise when the door opened to reveal the most amazing view across Manly beach!

The apartment is so well appointed - a espresso machine etc, and is clean and bright. The location is perfect, a short stroll to the ferry, the beach or any of the numerous bars and restaurants.

Manly is a great place for the active, every morning a group of about 100 swimmers set off across the bay and when I was here there was a fun run on the Sunday. Water sports abound - obviously!

I used public transport whilst here and would recommend anyone else to do the same. In fact the ferry from Circular Quay has been a highlight of the trip - perfect way to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing.

Overall this has been an amazing place to stay whilst in Sydney. I normally stay in fairly upmarket hotels with business but you'd be looking at. "Presidential Suite" to match what is on offer here.

Thank you to Jarmo for being so welcoming, I hope to come again!
