Why Christopher and Deborah Bardwell chose Warriewood
You will love our property as we are in a very central position to everything that Sydney's Northern Beaches has to offer. We are within easy access if driving from the Airport (around an hour) and Mona Vale Road (gateway to the Northern Beaches) and Pittwater Road (the main arterial road as you drive up and down the coast). We are an easy walk to beautiful Warriewood Beach and its cafes. A hidden gem which is not as crowded as other more well know beaches on the coast but it is a patrolled beach with lifeguards on duty. You have a choice of several scenic headland walks, north to Mona Vale Beach and south to Narrabeen Beach. A recently completed headland walk with amazing views takes you further if you wish! Leave the car at home! You will also love being an easy walk to the bus stop which takes you north to Palm Beach and south to Manly or the city. You can even walk to two cafes, two restaurants, a cinema, MacDonalds and a shopping mall! All in all, Warriewood is a very central and convenient location whether you choose to use your car, walk or take the bus.

Beautiful house in a quiet location
"We stayed in "Lakeview" for 3 weeks in November. It was our first visit to Australia and we really liked it.
The house is relatively new and nicely decorated. It was clean.
The bed was comfortable. We could sleep wonderfully, since it was quiet in the neighborhood and you did not hear any street noise (even with the window open).
The location of the house is ideal. 5 minutes drive away is a shopping center with supermarkets (Aldi, Cooles). A 10-minute walk away is Warriewood Beach with a few restaurants. The bus stop of the B1 bus is 15 minutes away. The bus leaves in 50 minutes for 5 AUD directly to Sydney. From there are 10 minutes walk to the port.
A car is required if you want to spend longer time in the house. We have made many beautiful tours to the surrounding national parks, including the "Blue Montains". You should definitely go there (but it takes about 2.5 hours each way, because you often get stuck in a traffic jam).
If you want to see small kangaroos and cockatoos in the wild, you should take the ferry from Palm Beach to Basin in the National Park.
The beaches north and south of Sydney are all beautiful, but the waves are usually very high. The water temperature was 20 degrees.
The landlords Debbie and Ross are very friendly and helpful.
It was a completely successful holiday for us!'
Thank you for your wonderful and comprehensive review! So pleased you enjoyed your stay !
Very clean, well organised cosy apartment.
Really enjoyed my stay here. The Hosts were very accomodating to our every need. Went above expectations to cater for us, and would highly recommend this Cosy Apartment to any of our friends and family.
Thank You Chris and Debbie :)
Thank you for your kind review Kirsten. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay!
"Lakeview" in Warriewood, is conveniently located near several world class beaches, a beautiful lake which offers cycling, boating, sightseeing, great hiking and swimming. All this and more abounds on the Northern Beaches. We boast Sydney's best lifestyle holiday being just 30 klm to the Sydney CBD, and only15 klm to famous Manly Beach to the south and Palm Beach to the north. Nestled in a quiet cul de-sac , our place is an easy walk to the beach, lake, shops, restaurants, cinema and the gym. Additionally, we are only a short walk to local buses going north, south or to the city. We are confident you will love what our location has to offer.
