Michael's place is so central to Manly, one of the most popular destinations in Sydney-only separated by a hill. In Manly you will find many bars and restaurants, and you can catch the ferry into the CBD which only takes about 30 minutes. You couldn't ask for more. The views overlooking the harbour from Michael's apartment are spectacular, the pictures don't lie. Michael was easy to reach despite being on holiday himself at the time of our stay. I should probably point out (as novice travellers my partner and I weren't aware), cockroaches are common in Australia (in dribs and drabs). Unfortunately we had a slight problem with the volume during our stay in this apartment. Thankfully Michael worked with airbnb to ensure this did not impact on our travels and we were reimbursed accordingly for the nights not spent there. Michael advised that he would be looking into this.

Response from Michael:
To clarify above review. Zoe squashed a cockroach on the floor, which you should never do as it carries eggs and its blood attracts other cockroaches. Unaware about this more cockroaches appeared. As I was on holiday, I had a friend to check up on the situation and there was nothing in particular to report (4 cockroaches was found dead after spraying the place). Unfortunately, Zoe's cockroach event was caused by her self, which is a pity as someone knowledgeable about living in Australia would know that seeing a few cockroaches during the hot season is common.

Michael was a great host from the start and kept in communication. The apartment is large and open and had amazing views of the water and is close to the the most beautiful beach in Manly. The outdoor patio is awesome for sunset. Kitchen was stocked with nice stuff for cooking.

Response from Michael:
Hi Heather, thanks for your review. I am glad that you loved the place, however the left over trash in the kitchen was meant on purpose to show where to put paper and plastic in the right containers. Perhaps I could have communicated that better to you. The fridge was washed down and I vacuumed the single rug so don't get the issue with that. I hope you enjoyed the flexibility of checking out late.

Michael was very helpful, arranging to meet him to get the key & also allowing us to leave our extra luggage early. The apartment was ideal. Fantastic views & everything we needed for our stay there. Highly recommended.
