The space

THE SEA LIFE is a 2 bedroom beach house located at short stroll to beautiful Manyana Beach. Indoors merge with outdoor living spaces to create a freeflowing environment, enhanced by the subtle salt air breeze and the sound of crashing waves.

Come back from the beach and lounge with the paper on our day bed or outdoor lounge, relax and soak in the private outdoor bathroom, while the kids challenge themselves to a friendly volleyball or badminton competition!

Finish off the day with an alfresco meal made in the gourmet kitchen or a summer BBQ on the deck, with a beer or a good bottle of wine, before retiring in a luxurious King bed.

The Sea Life boasts modern European appliances, outdoor firepit and indoor fireplace for those cozy winter nights.

Ideal for couples and small families, The Sea Life has one King room and the second room has the ability to transform into most configurations - 2 long single beds make up another King or 2, 3, or 4 singles. Just let us know your preference.

Great accomodation in walking distance to the beach in Manyana. Highlights were the outdoor shower and fire pit in the garden! Will definitely consider returning. Thanks Kylie!

Get ready for maximum relaxation with minimum fuss in beautiful surroundings. The house is modern and the design is very well thought out. The house has everything you need and nothing you don't to make a trip to the coast an easy and memorable one. We will be back for sure!

Great House! Love the modern rustic decor...all of the little details from Indo are awesome. Bummed it was too cold outside that we couldn't use the outdoor shower however the fireplace in the living room was toasty. The kitchen is top notch and stocked with all the prep and cooking necessities. Super cozy, stoked to come back in the summer.

Firstly let me say we had a great time staying at Kylie's house with our two kids. The outdoor space is fantastic, the fire pit is the best and we had music, stargazing and marshmallows in the yard both nights. The living spaces and great and very relaxed. The couch is very comfortable and my kids loved the elevated reading nook. The location is great. We walked to the beach both days and spent an afternoon in Milton. The street is very quiet but not particularly private being a regular residential block but that didn't worry us. Kylie gave us a discount on the linen package which was very appreciated, however personally I think for the price charged for the house, sheets/linen should be included. Anyhow there weren't any face washers or hand towels supplied in the linen package so maybe try to be prepared if you use those items like we do. Our other concern was the hot water system. We were aware it was solar and told to switch on the booster if we need it. The problem was we didn't know we need it till there was no hot water for showers on the first night. The day was very sunny so we didn't expect it to run out. My partner showered first and had a warm shower, my son then had luke warm and my poor 5 year old girl was left with cold which I wouldn't have put her in but she had already hopped in and soaped up before we realised the hot was gone. I then switched the booster but after 2 hours I gave up and had myself a very brief but freezing wash. Thankfully it was hot the following day. We just left it on after that. I think if you visit in winter I would suggest putting the booster on even if the day is sunny just in case. It was really disappointing after a long day of travel and playing at the beach not to have a nice hot shower. General cleanliness was okay but don't look closely at the sink hold or shower drains. There is no optus service so beware. It didn't bother me that there was no optus service until I wanted to contact the owners to ask about the hot water and a few other things but couldn't as there is also no wifi. It's a great little spot to stay and overall we did enjoy it. I would't say it's great value for money though, and a little attention to detail could go along way in terms of nice linens/soft towels/clean drain holes.

Response from Kylie:
Thanks for your feedback Lily, we are more than happy to hear our guests likes and dislikes about the property in order to continue improving for future guests, including yourselves. Should you wish to return at any time we would love to host you again. I will address a couple of your concerns and will consider adding hand towels and face washers. With regard to the hot water we have not received any other feedback concerning the lack of hot water and have had no problems ourselves when staying there so I will have it looked at to ensure there are no leaks. Internet is available upon request and is listed as an amenity on our web page - it has been significantly abused in the past so the password is not automatic sorry. I agree, the Optus network does not work unless you walk up the street! Addressing your concerns regarding cleanliness, I have spoken with the cleaner who on any other day does an amazing job but did accidentally overlook this on this occasion. I can assure you this is an anomaly however I do apologise. We hope that you will consider staying with us again some time in the future should you visit Manyana again.

Kylie's place was so peaceful. It was pleasant to sit back and relax by he outdoor or indoor fireplace. The beach down the road was so secluded. The family and dog loved it. Highly recommend
