Beautiful property and wonderful people!!
Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lovely Clontarf Retreat. The host family was extremely kind, communicative and flexible. The home has spectacular views in a quiet bay and easy accessibility to both town and Manly Beach with all the comforts required. Australia is a beautiful country and we couldn't recommend this property or host family higher. Thank you so much for extending us so much hospitality!!”
No better view or set-up in Middle Harbour
My family and I were very privileged to have been able to spend a few days over Christmas at the Clontarf Retreat. It is an immaculate home from top to bottom and has been beautifully designed and furnished by the owners. Perfectly situated between downtown Sydney and the Northern Beaches, the Clontarf Retreat has an unrivalled view of the harbour and direct access to Sandy Beach which is a haven for families. It is a very safe swimming spot and there is a great play area for kids. It is also the perfect launching post for the Clontarf to Manly walk which takes you around the coves and presents some breathtaking views. While at the house, we spent most of our time on the deck and BBQ area enjoying the view and watching the huge colony of bats return to their resting places in the local trees down at the beach every evening. A simply magical spot! Carolyn had prepared everything and provided some lovely fluffy beach towels and, thoughtfully, some games for our girls to play with. Thank you very much to the QB's for letting us stay at short notice. It really made our Christmas and we would love to come and stay again given the opportunity. ”
