We spent a week over New Year's in this spectacular house. It looked amazing online and it looks even better in real life. The view is absolutely stunning! We were even able to see the famous fireworks from the balcony. The house is tastefully decorated and we were very comfortable here. We brought our little dog and the garden was perfect for her. Manly is a short drive away and it can be a bit tricky to find a parking there. However, free shuttles leave once per hour just around the corner from the Dome, which is very convenient and we used this service most days. Coralie is a lovely, attentive and very accomodating hostess. We would highly recommend a stay at the Dome!

Staying at The Dome was a wonderful experience. It is even better than it looks. Communication with Coralie prior to our booking was friendly and helpful - just as she was throughout our stay. Didn't ask much of her, but felt that if we had need to, we only had to ask. The Dome is virtually in the backyard, but very private and its own little haven. Architecture is amazing. A unique and special place to stay, particularly for a couple - open space is part of its charm but little privacy between rooms if that's a concern. Views are beautiful, even in the pouring rain. Perched in the tree tops. No blinds, but unless you mind birds looking in, not a problem. Interior decoration is "just right" and it is so nice to stay somewhere with such attention to detail and character. Outside area is fantastic for eating, drinking or just contemplating the lovely place you have found yourself in. Fish pond - inside and out is another gorgeous feature. Seaforth is not an area I would choose to stay if it wasn't for The Dome, but nonetheless is a pleasant area close enough to Manly & CBD. Can get by with public transport & Uber, but a car is certainly handy if staying here. Our surfer sons who stayed with us agreed that even though they didn't have waves across the road, the trade off for staying in such a great place was worth it!

We had a wonderful 5 week stay at the Dome! It's a beautiful space, very open plan, light and airy with beautiful views across the water. Coralie and Alex were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel very welcome in their spectacular home. Highly recommended!

We spend a lot of time travelling Australia in our Campervan. When you visit The Dome perhaps we will be away, in which case we will leave emergency contact number and plenty of information on The Dome and surrounding area. If not travelling ourselves, we will be nearby in our Apartment and more than happy to personally welcome you and offer any advice needed.
