Very happy

With very little knowledge of the area, we were very happy with our location. The property suited us and had everything we needed.

Rebecca, Australia, May 2021

Clean and bright

We stayed at Toni and Victor's lovely home for 3 months whilst renovating and it was a delightful spot to stay. Our children could play outside and it was clean and bright. I particularly liked the view of the ocean from the kitchen in the morning. A very relaxed feel and lovely hosts. Great location and close to the beach and shops.

Esther, Australia, April 2021

Coming home

We stayed with Victor and Toni for three months and from our very warm welcome to our very emotional departure we had a wonderful stay. We certainly intend to return when we can. Victor and Toni are incredibly supportive hosts who respond rapidly to any queries whilst also respecting your privacy. They are delightful people and we thoroughly enjoyed their company. Beacon Hills is a residential area but is within easy reach of the Northern beaches. It would benefit you to have a car but the local bus service is excellent and can get you anywhere you want to go. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and the large terrace/garden area was a bonus. As were the wonderful views. On returning from trips out it felt like ‘coming home’. I most certainly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Victor and Toni’s Airbnb to anyone. 

Jean & Dave, UK, April 2020


We felt welcome

We had a nice stay in this apartment. Toni and Victor are great hosts. The apartment is furnished with everything you need for a long stay, our son enjoyed playing in their backyard and Toni and Victor went out of their way to make us feel welcome and provide any help we needed.

Thiago, USA, December 2019



A good place to stay for a longer time with children!

Markus, Germany, November 2019



Calm and quiet place with pleasant garden and ocean views. Good for kids, the garden has a trampoline, swings and a basket ball net. Well-equipped kitchen, lots of space, clean and sunny. Friendly and helpful hosts.

Jarosław, Poland, October 2019

Everything we needed

Hosts are lovely, very accommodating. Great location, comfortable stay. We had everything we needed. Highly recommended staying here!

Vanessa, UK, October 2019

Super fun

Charming, down to earth hosts live over comfortable downstairs unit with terraced backyard overgrown goodness overlooking the sea from Beacon Hill. The trampoline is super fun to bounce around on and is also a good place to read a book. We enjoyed the various and hilarious bird calls and the sound of the rain in the trees and on the patio. Good water pressure, hot showers. Very hot in fact. All the amenities accounted for and if there was something we needed, it was available - and an opportunity to say hello to Toni & Victor who are very nice people. Recommended. We would certainly book here again.

Brent, USA, October 2019


Wonderful hosts and a wonderful stay! Lots of space, a beautiful outlook and view, very homely, clean and comfortable. We look forward to staying there again!

Tanya & Chris, Australia, September 2019


Consummate hosts

As Head of Hockey Operations at the Sydney Ice Dogs, I housed my international "import" players at Ocean Views at Beacon Hill, for a period of 20 weeks in mid-2019. Toni & Victor were consummate hosts, and the property was in excellent condition at all times. The property was an exceptional fit-for-purpose, and I have no hesitation in recommending them as a host.

Andrew, for Canada, August 2019


We stayed at Toni and Victor's apartment for three months. We had everything we needed to be very comfortable and had a wonderful experience. The apartment is clean, gets a lot of sunlight due to its large windows, and has an airy feel. The kitchen has all the essentials for storing and cooking food, even for a longer stay. The beds are comfortable. I slept well at night and was happy to wake up to birds singing in the morning. You can see a lot of beautiful greenery from the windows and even the ocean from the kitchen. The area just outside the apartment has outdoor furniture for eating and relaxing. The back yard is very secluded and has a hot tub, and the front yard with the hammock and a seating area is open to guests as well. Additionally, Toni and Victor always welcome their guests to enjoy the upstairs patio. The area is safe and quiet and the house is within a walking distance from several bus stops, the closest of which is only a three minute walk away. We took public transit to Dee Why, Manly, various beaches, and Sydney all the time. Grocery stores can also be quickly reached by bus (10-15 minutes for the closest of them), and of course even quicker by car. Toni and Victor are very kind and welcoming. They always made sure we had everything we needed, were very helpful, and responded to messages quickly. Thanks to them, we visitied a lot of local attractions that otherwise we wouldn't have known about and got the real Australia experience, rather than purely a tourist one. We would definitely recommend Toni and Victor's place to anyone and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Ksenia, USA, April 2019


Great value and easy location to access northern beaches area. Very comfortable and clean. Excellent hosts

David, Australia, January 2019

A real treat

Victor and Toni were great hosts, and the apartment gave a great base for exploring the Northern Beaches. The outside space was also a real treat, to soak in the views and the sunshine! Super comfy bed, and very clean! Great chill out area - hard to fault! Also great to be able to catch up on washing throughout our trip!!

Gemma, UK, December 2018

Good choice

Toni and Victor are very kind. They smile a lot and give us very detailed instruction. the house is very clean and very cosy. this house is a good choice for you to live!

Remedios, China, November 2018

Memorable stay

First time with my family in Sydney, and it was an amazing stay at Toni & Victor’s place. Having two small kids, it can be a daunting task arranging a good holiday....we consider ourselves very fortunate that we landed in Beacon Hill at this very property. The place: good view of the sea, equipped with a trampoline for the kids, lovely garden, cosy apartment. The hosts: hospitable from day one, and made it personal with their many offers for help with our visit. The location: 10 min drive to Manly beach, 5 min drive to shops and eateries at Dee Why. Would definitely recommended to anyone wanting a memorable Sydney Northern Beaches stay.

Shiva, Malaysia, October 2018

Above and beyond

We had a wonderful stay! The unit was lovely and clean and very welcoming and homely. The view is spectacular and the location is great!

We have 2 children, 4 and 6 and they loved it too. So much for them to do.

Our hosts Toni and Victor were very accommodating and went above and beyond to make us feel at home.

I would absolutely recommend their accommodation to anyone and we will absolutely stay there again next time we are in Sydney!

Marissa, Australia, September 2018

Renovation escape

We chose this place as we were renovating our apartment in Fairlight and needed somewhere to live for two months. From day one it felt like home. Toni and Victor are lovely, kind and very generous hosts who went out of their way to help us in every situation. Our kids loved the large outdoor space, the trampoline and the spa tub! The views across to Manly and up to Narrabeen were incredible. We very much enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Chris, Australia, May 2018


We loved staying at Toni and Victor's unit. It was clean, homely and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and hospitable. Living in the house above the flat they were available to answer queries and attend to minor problems promptly. The flat was spacious for 2 or 3 people. Excellent outdoor porch. Air con effective in humid weather. Short walk to bus stop on route to Warringah Mall and Manly. Would definitely recommend and happy to stay again.

Deborah, Australia, February 2018

Privacy we needed

Toni and Victor are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment is well located, clean, has everything you could need and provides the necessary privacy we needed. It was truly a wonderful stay.

Riaan, South Africa, February 2018

Totally suitable for baby

We stayed at the apartment after arrival in Australia. We can fully recommend the apartment: it is very nice in the green, well located if you prefer a bit outside of Sydney, excellent public transport available, short distances to Sydney centre, Manly, Northern Beaches, etc. And the best are the fabulous house lords, which did some advance shopping for our arrival, gave us useful tips and are very friendly. We stayed there with a 10 month old baby and the accommodation is totally suitable for this case. Many thanks and all the best!

Andreas, Germany, January 2018


Plenty of space for kids

For us, a family with two little children, a really good place to stay. Lots of indoor and outdoor toys, plenty of space and very kind hosts. The perfect place to stay near the Northern Beaches!

Stefan, Germany, October 2017

Very much a family atmosphere

My young son and I thoroughly enjoyed our mini break... clean, airy, relaxing with great views. Our hosts friendly and welcoming - very much a family atmosphere. Removed from the hustle and bustle of Sydney but only 20 minutes away from Manly by public transport

Roy, Australia, September 2017

Close to everything we needed

Very accommodating hosts who were very welcoming to our grandchildren who visited. Would definitely stay here again,as it is close to everything we needed.

Plenty of play equipment for children. A tidy, clean homely property.

Cheryl, New Zealand, September 2017

Good equilibrium of privacy and friendship

When we booked this relatively small part of the house of Victor and Toni, we were a little bit concerned about the possibility of the apartment not providing enough space and comfort for our family of 4, for 1.5 months (we stayed with both parents and two kids of 18 and 10 years old). However, the experience we had in this charming and very well positioned house, with a nice view of the ocean and lots of solar light, provided a calm atmosphere, and excellent conditions for long family moments. Since we arrived back in Portugal, we have remembered several times the excellent moments we had in this very charming space. Thanks to Victor and Toni, who provided a good equilibrium of privacy and friendship.

Joaquim, Portugal, August 2017


We loved our stay at Toni and Victor's place. They were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The house is lovely and lots for our 2 year old daughter to play with! Would definitely recommend it and hopefully we will be back in the future.

Lucy, Australia, May 2017

Excellent accommodation

We really enjoyed staying at this lovely accommodation, the owners are lovely, and really helpful, thoughtful and friendly. The location is great with only a short distance to the beach, shops and mall. The bed is really comfortable and we really enjoyed eating our meals outside on the terrace with the ocean view.

Scilla, UK, April 2017

Hotels have nothing on this

This was a beautiful apartment. The hosts were incredible. They really cared about us. There is no comparison to any hotels we have ever stayed at. This far surpasses them all.

Larry, USA, March 2017

So much better than a hotel!

Very comfortable accommodation. Was a nice change from cramped hotel rooms. Only issue I had was having to go to work each day. Great family, very helpful. Victor and Toni were very flexible with check in and out and had no probs letting me stay an extra night with no notice. Will definitely stay there again if possible.

Scott, Australia, February 2017

Wonderful Home from Home!

This was the perfect place for our young family to stay and they absolutely loved all the outdoor toys (car, trampoline, swing etc) and the facilities available. Our hosts were an amazing help during a mini crisis and could not have been more flexible or supportive. It was a real pleasure to stay here and really felt like a home from home. Definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it! 

Iain, New Zealand, January 2017

Delightful, cozy, and beautiful home

Toni and Victor are in possession of one of the greatest homes we have stayed in. The neighborhood in Beacon Hill is absolutely gorgeous and is far enough away from the city to enjoy some peace and quiet but close enough that getting to the city isn't an issue at all (The trip is actually quite enjoyable as it includes a ferry ride with beautiful views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House). The house itself is equipped with all of the accommodations you could ask for and the family consists of some of the nicest, most genuine people the world has to offer. If we're ever back in the area, we'll be sure to make reservations here again!

Travis, USA, January 2017


Thanks very much Toni and Victor. We really enjoyed our stay with you and really enjoyed your lovely home. You made us feel very welcome. I'd highly recommend a stay in your home.

Ciaran, Ireland, December 2016

Beautiful apartment

The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment itself is very cosy and comfortable, the garden is beautiful (with a great jacuzzi!!!) and Victor and Toni were extremely welcoming from the moment we arrived. The oven is only a small plug in oven and I had some big cooking plans so Victor and Toni were extremely accommodating and allowed me to have full roam of their kitchen for my cooking needs! Overall a lovely apartment owned by a lovely family.

Kathryn, UK, December 2016

Relaxing and peaceful home with warm welcoming hosts

We used this lovely place as a place to go during the day as we renovated our own home nearby. It all started out with being very easy to book, followed by such a warm welcome as we arrived. This friendly approach continued to be the pattern Victor and Toni were lovely in greeting us including our little daughter. They have achieved a great balance between being available if you want company and chats or leaving you to your own space if you prefer. The place was clean, well kept and we had everything we would need. The grounds were fantastic as we got to use the garden including the trampoline which was an absolute hit with our daughter. There is a lovely area right out front of the place to hang out outdoors in a private space. The views are lovely and overall there was such a sense of peace here. I was even inspired to have some day time naps which are unheard of!! It's bright and airy and catches the lovely ocean breeze. The place is very close to the bus which is great for anyone that needs to use it.

Annie, Australia, November 2016

It's a great place and within close vicinity to the mall and Manly beach. The living room and bedroom are spacious. There were tons of resources in the unit for sight seeing and getting around. Toni and Victor are very friendly and attentive.
Reeta, Canada, October 2016

Great family accommodation

We highly recommend this lovely, family run accommodation. Located close to city and beaches, the owners go above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need for our young family. We have stayed here twice and will be back again.

Shelley, Australia, September 2016

Great stay with great hosts


As s family we loved our stay at Ocean Views, we really enjoyed the warm welcome and the hospitality of the family. The apartment is light and nicely decorated, we would really recommend this place!

Helma, The Netherlands, August 2016

Great place & great people to stay with

We are a family from Guangzhou to visit Sydney first time. Owners Toni & Victor did all their best to help us. Victor even greeted us in Cantonese and present us a greeting card in Chinese.They provided us a rice cooker and organised loaded opal cards for us too so we easily explored the great city by bus , ferry and train . The residence is very quiet, leafy ,which is located on the top of beacon hill. On the sun deck ,we can see the picturesque ocean view ,we can the sunrise form Tasman sea. On the street which the house locates, we also saw the city view and Sydney tower. The bus stops are just in an easy walk distance. We went to Dee Why beach, Warringah mall ,Manly and city by bus easily. The room and bedding are quite comfortable. We stayed in Sydney only 10days.Too many things to do so we seldom cook there.Next time we shall fully use their kitchen facilities, say the slow cooker. Definitely to recommend my friends to stay here.

Joan, China, August 2016

Beautiful and Comfortable

My two daughters and I loved our stay. The property had everything we needed. The grounds are gorgeous and feel secluded. My kids loved the trampoline. There are two tiny shop areas within walking distance. As well there are many convenient bus stops to take you to Sydney or nearby towns. Everything else is a short drive. The only reason I gave it 4 stars out of 5 is that it is at the top of a hill, making walking a little bit farther too much for smaller children. The area is beautiful, and the owners were very helpful in pointing us toward the best local spots for day hikes.

Jen, USA, July 2016

Fantastic for family with kids

Large backyard with lots to do for kids like trampoline, swing, hammock, basketball and spa. Toni and Victor are very welcoming and accommodating. Helped us with finding nearest Indian groceries & shops offered toys for kids. Guided us about walking tracks nearby which are plenty in nearby area with 5-7 minute drive. Excellent Wi-Fi which is very important nowadays. Nice view of the Pacific Ocean and starry night sky with breath taking sunrise! Would love to stay again!!

Ashish, India, May/June 2016

Lovely stay

We stayed with Toni and Victor while visiting family in Sydney. We were made very welcome and the apartment was perfect for our stay, quiet and peaceful. We had our own patio for breakfast, overlooking the garden and lovely views. Birds singing too, even a kookaburra. Toni said we could use the washing machine which was very useful. We didn't make use of the hot tub, or trampoline - but maybe next time.

Sheila and Stan, UK, March 2016



We had a great first week of our 5 months holiday thanks to Toni and Victor and the great appartment. The location near the lookout viewpoint of Beacon Hill is great, quiet and close to beautiful beaches.

Isabell, Germany, February 2016



Victor and Toni go out of their way to make guests welcome. The accommodation is spacious with a marvelous patio where we ate breakfast and fed the kookaburras, magpies, and sparrows. We also discovered Dee Why beach, an amazing stretch of surf and sand with great cafes and restaurants nearby. Highest recommendation!!

Jim & Alden, USA, January 2016



We had a great holiday here. Perfect for our family of 4. The children loved the trampoline and jacuzzi pool in the garden. Very helpful hosts with regards booking and planning trip. They were away during our stay but we were very well looked after by their house sitter. Very well situated for the beaches and Manly. Some good local shops etc. We loved it and would definitely stay again on our next visit.

Melanie, UK, December 2015



Wonderful accommodation with very welcoming hosts! Apart from the apartment which had pretty much everything we needed in our trip, it has a cosy backyard and excellent balcony, offering a clear view of the ocean and a big starry night sky. Remember to wake up for the sunrise! It is extremely beautiful when it comes out of the Pacific Ocean :)

Yiming, Singapore, December 2015



Toni & Victor were really welcoming and friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay a lovely and enjoyable one. The house was really lovely and spacious, with really beautiful views of the sea. Would love to stay in their house again.

Ji & Grace, Singapore, November 2015


Excellent Wifi

Toni and Victor were great hosts, very hospitable and accommodating. The flat was very comfortable although the kitchen only allows for simpler meals. The wifi was excellent which was important for us in planning the rest of our trip. The only downside was that it was a half hour by bus from Manly, and public transportation only ran every half hour.

Katarina, Sweden, November 2015


Complete privacy

We received a warm welcome from Victor and Toni and very much appreciated the quiet relaxing atmosphere of this very comfortable, well equipped apartment - just what we needed after our long flight from England. The accommodation offers complete privacy, lots of space, both indoors and outside, with panoramic views towards the sea from the patio.. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Chris and Anne, England, October 2015


Thorough enjoyment

We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Toni and Victor were the perfect hosts. Our twin 2 year olds loved the garden, swing, trampoline and close proximity to the beach. The room was big, clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were adequate for our holidaying needs. We highly recommend for a relaxing get away that's close to Sydenys Northern Beaches.

Shelley, Victoria Australia, October 2015


Extremely helpful

Toni and Victor were very hospitable. They were both extremely helpful, tolerant of our unfamiliarity of the area, respectful of our privacy and always eager to assist us with almost anything we asked. The home was clean and well maintained.

Ricky, Queensland Australia, August 2015



We had a lovely 4 night stay here last week. Victor and Toni are very welcoming but give you plenty of space. The accommodation is comfortable, perfect for us with three small children who loved jumping on the trampoline. Thank you for a relaxing stay in your beautiful home

Maree, South Australia, July 2015


Magical views

Five nights in a well appointed apartment. Toni and Victor have put much thought into creating an environment which makes you want to come back. Peaceful with magical views of Sydney, especially at night. Shops and take-aways close by and the walk to Arthur Philip Lookout is recommended.

Jim, Tasmania Australia, June 2015


At home

We decided to find shelter for the upcoming weather at our campsite and we couldn't have picked a nicer spot. The location suited us nicely as a starting point towards surrounding places such as Manly, Blue Mountains and Sydney city. But we and our kids were also happy just to stick around and play in the backyard. Added bonus for us was Toni and Victor's daughter who was so nice to babysit one night so that we could have our first night out since a while. We were also happily surprised to find out we stayed at some fellow Dutchman. We would highly recommend this place to anyone, families, couples and singles because the apartment suits anyone and makes you feel at home surely!

Elvin, The Netherlands, May 2015


Great stay

We stayed here while we trying to find a long term rental. As we were relocating from the UK we were extremely stressed and with 2 kids (one just starting to walk ) it was great to be somewhere you could relax for a bit. Toni and Victor were so helpful, giving us lots of information on areas to visit and live.

Jodie, UK/Australia, May 2015



Family-friendly the right word!

The hosts went out of their way to make our family of six comfortable. There were toys and other items (e.g. high chair) provided for the smaller kids, but also the older kids had fun playing outside in the garden and on the trampoline. We stayed for a week, and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Joy, Victoria/Australia, April 2015


Family time!

We had a truly wonderful whirlwind week in Sydney and sincerely appreciate Toni and Victor opening their doors to welcome us into their home. As my 7 year old daughter put it that she is so glad she met Toni and Victor because they are so so kind! We had a very busy time but the homely feel of our accommodation made for a magical time for our family/honeymoon.

Jessica, Western Australia, March 2015


Great Location

We attended 3 days of northern beaches surf carnivals in January 2015. Ocean View suited us perfectly, 2 adults, 1 14yr old. Very accommodating hosts (on site), top views, close to everything, lots of outdoor space, garden spa, and reasonably private from the upstairs owners level. The kitchen has hotplates and m-wave, and there is plenty of cooking/cutlery/crockery.

Dennis, New Zealand, February 2015



Great place and excellent hosts.Our kids loved it as it was a haven for them with toys, the trampoline, the ping pong and the garden. Very nice and quite location.

Miroslav, February 2015


Home away from home

The entire experience was one that we will never forget. The constant communication with the owners prior to our arrival made it feel like we were visiting old friends by the time we checked-in. Toni and Victor will forever be dear to our family!


We were welcomed in the later evening by our gracious hosts and given a tour of the premises immediately. The apartment was indeed spacious, comfortably decorated, and filled an eclectic collection of local memorabilia. It was a pleasant surprise to have toys for our 15-month old son already set up and ready for play along with a pack-and-play for sleeping from the moment we stepped in the door. Everything about the apartment was comfortable. We were especially fond of being able to put our son in the crib and close off the bedroom area while my husband and I enjoyed a little alone time in the living room 


The location of the property is well-positioned. The views are spectacular!! However, the upstairs balcony is far more breathtaking. May you be so lucky as to experience a storm moving in....incredible! The neighborhood is great for walks, just be prepared for hills.


We were given the local's scoop on the best restaurants, shopping, and beaches. We were given suggestions on day trips and outings. Best of all, we were asked how our experience could have been better.


If you want a cozy stay just outside of Sydney.....BOOK HERE!!

Lepresca, USA, December 2014


“Great place and welcoming family”

We have just had the most wonderful 8 days at Freshwater with fabulous hosts, Toni and Victor. Our children simply loved the place. It was spacious and very clean and the hosts exceeded our expectations with their helpfulness. The surrounding area has easy access to travel links which are incredibly punctual. We had a great time and would definitely stay again if we had the chance.

Poppy, New Zealand, December 2014


“Amazing end to an amazing holiday”

 We spent seven nights at Ocean Views as the final part of our 3 week holiday in Australia and we could not have chosen a better place to spend it. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Toni greeted us and took us through their house to meet Victor and the children and then show us around our apartment which is situated on the ground floor of the house. Toni had kindly e:mailed us a few days before our arrival to ask if we wanted a meal cooked for us as we were arriving in the evening and had prepared a lovely curry. They would have also got us some shopping in if we had wanted. 


The location of the property is in a quiet street in Beacon Hill, close to Dee Why and gave us amazing views out over the coast to the Pacific ocean - the sunrises were spectacular! You have full access to the beautiful gardens, front and back and to a hot tub! There are a number of choices of where to sit on the terrace which runs the length of the property, from a cosy shaded wooden bench, to table and chairs under the pergola to the upstairs deck with even more spectacular views over the coast. The inside of the apartment was perfect with large cosy lounge, bedroom with bed positioned so you had views out over the garden and coast, perfect for those sunrises and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom - no bath but large, powerful shower. Toni and Victor have provided heaps of information on the local area and getting around, plus there are bookcases full of books, dvd's etc.. At the end of the apartment was a fully fitted laundry room - ideal after a couple of weeks travelling north Queensland and the Red Centre


Toni and Victor certainly allowed us to feel we were sharing their home and were around to give help and advice if needed, but were never intrusive. Their home allows you to just chill and enjoy 'just being there' or provides you with the ideal base to explore the northern beaches and national parks.....a real home from home.


There is plenty of choice locally if you want to go out to eat or to just get a take away being just a few minutes drive from Dee Why or Manly. 


In all honesty there is nothing we did not like about our stay and our only wish is that it was a bit nearer to England lol!


A big, big thank you to Toni, Victor and family for providing such an amazing place to stay and for being wonderful hosts. We could not recommend Ocean Views highly enough - just go there and experience it for yourselves!!

Adrian, UK, October 2014


“Sydney Surburbs...at its most very pleasant”

What a "gem" of a place here! Toni & Victor - a well-travelled couple themselves - have a lovely, spacious, welcoming comfortable home, whom they share with guests. I had the self-contained ground-floor flat (with fridge already stocked with my favourite foods for breakfast). This is a family home: "airy", & spacious - without any intrusion - and with an interesting, adventure back-garden. Instructions for everything - from the bus & ferry times to interesting local & national walks - are well documented. Books (some in Dutch) abound ....so the travelling guest can always be occupied with something, if they did not bring their own...( ..or even if they did). 

When was the last time "Happy Birthday" was sung to you? This was a lovely touch, together with coffee and a chance to say "hello/goodbye".

I almost forgot: after travelling for 24-hrs one welcomes a comfortable bed!...I appreciated that. In fact, there was nothing Toni&Victor forgot! - even a "communications" notice message board..in the utility room.

If you don't mind reading time-tables and planning your journey (1-hr into the City, or 1/2-hr into Manly ...then another 1/2-hr by ferry into the City) - I slept, read or just observed - do try here: you do get a greater sense of a country/its citizens by staying in the suburbs. 

David, UK, September 2014


Winter in July

My husband and I spent 3 happy months at Ocean Views. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect for public transport to local areas and the city. Our grandson loved to visit as there was a good stock of toys and, his favourite activity, a trampoline in the garden. Vic and Toni were great hosts- friendly and helpful but never intrusive.

Pat and Steve, July-September 2014


Fun play

Wonderful friendly hosts and a bright clean place!

We stayed for 4 weeks and the hosts were super friendly. Our kids hat loads of fun playing with the children of the house owner. The place was very clean and bright. The views from Beacon Hill down to the sea are splendid too.

Daniel, Switzerland, May 2014





Great accommodation near Manly. We had a very comfortable stay. Toni and Victor were very accommodating. Our toddler loved the garden with trampoline!

Charlotte,  February 2014


Amazing place and the friendliest owners :) I really enjoy the week I spend with Victor and Toni... they really know how to be great hosts. The room is pretty tidy, spacious and has an amazing view from the entire Northern Beaches.

Leandro, February 2014


HIighly Recommended! Suited our need perfectly!!Owners of this lovely renovated downstairs flat made us feel very welcome and at home. Very clean and spacious with large family room and separate bedroom, it suited our needs perfectly. Great location, close to Warringah Shopping Mall, Manly and Northern Beaches. Boasting lovely views towards the coast to enjoy a great start to the day with breakfast outside or enjoy a peaceful relaxing evening. Quite side street and no traffic noise is a bonus with street parking available.

Lee, January 2014


Our stay with Victor & Toni was splendid. Their approach is to welcome their guests as dear friends and have that relaxed No-Worries mentality. During the booking and our approach to Sydney, Victor & Toni proved to be helpful, thoughtful and during our stay we even felt part of their family.

James, January 2014


We viewed the Sydney fireworks from the best spot possible, we surfed and relaxed at one of the less crowded beaches, we quickly learned how to use the public transport system, and found Beacon Hill to be quite central to all Sydney has to offer.

Hannelot, January 2014


The apartment itself has a beautiful view of the beaches at Curl Curl and Dee Why. Waking up with this view from your bed is priceless. There is an adequate kitchen. Although we only used it for brecky, the kitchen is equipped to make yourself an easy dinner. An asset of the apartment is the adjacent laundry. We did not bring enough clothes, so we used it to wash some.The pictures do not express the spaciousness of the apartment. It covers the whole width of their home and has a nice terrace overlooking the garden and the same beaches as decribed above. We stayed for just one week, but on our return we will book for at least 2 weeks.

Norbert, January 2014



Thoroughly recommend and would stay again. Lovely!! Good Option for the Northern Beaches. Had a great stay with the family over Christmas. Toni and Victor are great hosts. Next time we are in Sydney, this is where we will be staying for sure.

Alan, December, 2013



What a "gem" of a place!Toni & Victor were great hosts and have a very nice place! Brilliant views of the ocean, with the sun shining on it, nice garden and nature area with the birds song to wake you up in the morning, and a lovely furnished flat with everything in it! Plus, Toni&Victor are great hosts, very nice and that can help you with lots of things! A great place, close to everything, with buses or by car. Looking something near Manly? Go!

Axel, November 2013



We had a great stay and found the property to be excellent. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well appointed with books, DVD's, games and toys for our children. The property has great views and is filled with light and has a lovely feel. Victor and Toni (hosts/owners) made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

Simon, November 2013


Meeting people

What attracted me to this location was the caption " we like meeting people, and we would like to share our home": indeed they do - a very pleasant family that made my stay (6 nights in this part of Sydney) a very enjoyable experience.

Noel, UK, October 2013


We had a great time staying at Toni and Victor's house. Not only because of the view or the comfortable place, but because their warm and helpful attitude at all times. We really spent a really good time with you guys.Thanks a lot.

My stay with Victor and Toni exceeded all my expectations. I had the entire bottom floor of the house to myself. The place was spotless, tastefully decorated and they had obviously put a lot of thought into providing everything a traveller might need. I didn't need to ask for anything that had not been provided or explained in the detailed instructions on how to use the place. Particularly impressive to me was the strong Internet signal in all the rooms as well as the jacuzzi in the back yard. I know where I will stay next time I need accomodation on the northern beaches of Sydney.
