Lovely sun-drenched family home available near Manly beach, shops, and schools

Lovely family home available in Balgowlah, Sydney -- less than five minutes drive to beautiful Manly Beach and a five minute walk to the Manly-Spit Bridge Harbour Walk (and some fabulous Harbour beaches and swimming pools). The home is a high-ceiling, federation-style semi-detached house, with three large bedrooms plus a study, off-street parking, and small backyard. The house has been recently renovated, and newly painted inside and out. Suitable for a couple or family, with rent negotiable, depending on length of stay (and whether you can look after our lovely, independent but friendly cat). Car and bicycle use/rental also negotiable, along with free beach parking permit. There is also a free council shuttle bus to the beach and ferry about a minute walk from our door. Free Internet and wifi. We are in a very quiet, safe, and friendly neighbourhood, with easy access to local shops, schools, parks, free bus service to the beach, organic food market every Saturday across the road at the public school, commuter buses to the city centre (about 30 minutes to the city) or to the Manly Ferry to the city (bus takes five minutes to the wharf, and the slow ferry is about 30 minutes, while the fast ferry 15-20 mins). We are a few minutes drive from several ocean and harbour beaches, which you can also walk or bicycle to very easily. There are dozens more ocean and harbour beaches within 30 minutes drive, as well as great hiking nearby and also the fabulous Kuring-Gai National Park about twenty minutes away. In short, there is a lot to explore. More photos available upon request (and will post soon). Available from July 7 through to October 6, 2017. We would prefer someone to stay for the duration and are willing to negotiate with the price if that is possible. Minimum stay is one month. We would also consider part-exchange for a house in Europe, or Peru/Bolivia.

Housesitting Comments
We have a lovely little cat called Coca who is very child-friendly, and very independent (we regularly go away for weekends and leave the back door open for her, and food). She is very little trouble!
