Superior 4th floor studio apartment in Ettalong Beach Resort (Mantra building) on the waterfront at Ettalong - just across the road from the beach.
Views south out to the headlands across the waters of Broken Bay and Pittwater, and west across the tree-top canopy to distant hills.
Our studio apartment at Ettalong Beach Resort (the same complex as The Mantra) has quality solid oak and beech furniture, easy to use electrical appliances and enhanced entertainment . There's even a comfortable slightly elevated outdoor setting to make the most of the views from the balcony over breakfast.
Another benefit is the king-size bed - studio apartments here normally only have a queen. The king bed here gives couples that extra space that helps make for a peaceful night's sleep. For those looking for a twin room the king bed can be split into two singles making this a great twin room option - there's no argument over who gets the sofa-bed! (because in this apartment there isn't one... it accommodates two guests only)
The apartment is on the 4th floor of the resort on its western elevation so it's great place from which to watch the sunset over the hills. Please bear in mind the water is to the south and so is visible from the apartment's balcony (see photos) but not from inside the apartment.
We have often stayed in other apartments in this resort ourselves so we know what a difference little additions, modifications and alterations can make to the experience. This is why, as well as the upgrades mentioned so far, being new owners we have also included little features like these:
- the choice of front-, side- or back-sleeper pillows
- additional, more convenient hanging hooks for towels and robes in the bathroom
- a bluetooth speaker
- Maxwell and Williams Cashmere crockery, including mugs rather than cups for a more thirst-quenching cuppa!
Anyway, that's enough about the apartment - we hope you get the picture. Now for the resort and location.
There is a lovely pool on the first floor with sun-loungers and a terrace with tables, chairs and more great views of the water. There are three lifts to whisk you up and down and plentiful parking both underground and on the surface.
So, to summarise...
This apartment is a cut above the norm in this resort but isn't any more expensive most of the time and will usually be much more affordable. It has been carefully and thoughtfully upgraded with quality items. The washing machine is a Bosch, the TV and microwave are Panasonic, the bar-fridge is Westinghouse and the clothes dryer Whirlpool. There is also an iron, ironing board, safe and hair-dryer. The bathroom has a spa bath with a shower.
Please note the kitchenette does not have an oven but it does have a microwave and a two-plate stove top. Like all rooms in the resort it is a non-smoking room - and the smoke alarms are very sensitive!

We would like our guests to enjoy themselves when they stay, but we ask that they be conscious of the fact that there are neighbours quite close. If noise could be kept to agreeable levels that would be much appreciated.
We have put a lot of effort into making this apartment a nice place to stay with a few luxuries that we think you'll enjoy. We would be very grateful if you would look after our apartment so that we and others can enjoy it after you.
We are sure you'll love it! And we look forward to welcoming you.
