Mosman villa description

Wambirri takes its name from local indigenous Australians and means where the sun greets the ocean.

Wambirri is a charming 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with uninterrupted Sydney Harbor and Pacific Ocean views. It is is located in one of Sydney’s most prestigious areas and on one of Sydney’s best kept secrets - Balmoral Beach!

You will be mesmerized by the views, the sunrises and the sunsets! The property is landscaped in a French Provincial style and offers a free flowing open living floor plan, designer classic light filled interiors and unsurpassed views from the master bedroom, living room, sun room, outdoor entertaining areas and the cliff top pool. Your family will enjoy watching the boats sail past from one of two sun drenched outdoor living spaces or in the air conditioned comfort of the indoors. The house is fully furnished and has everything you need and more for a relaxing vacation or a home away from home.

Important things to know about our house:
• 3 oversized bedrooms, each with their own bathroom;
• Open plan living areas that capture the views;
• French Provincial style kitchen with state of the art appliances;
• Two Sunny alfresco dining areas;
• Private swimming pool with uninterrupted views;
• Air-conditioning /under floor heating/working wood fireplace.;
• Family friendly home - games, books, beach toys, DVDs included.

Balmoral Beach has beautiful white sand and is a 2 minute nature walk from the house. The house overlooks a natural rock platform where you often see dolphins playing, or large schools of fish. It is a great place to snorkel!

Balmoral Beach has numerous cafes and restaurants where you can dine in style or take a picnic to the sand. The house is also a 2 minute walk to Chinamen’s Beach and is a great place to play in the sand (sand toys located at the house for your use) or collect sea shells. If you prefer more activity there are kayaks, sail boats and wind surfers available for hire.

If you prefer the bustle of city shopping its a quick 20 minute drive away or if you prefer there is public transport by bus on your doorstep - it will take you to the city, ferry, Taronga Zoo and other Sydney attractions.

This house is best suited for executive families, couples, relocated families, people in need of a second home while renovating, or families in Sydney temporarily on work assignments.

All guests, will be greeted on arrival, by the property manager, who is available to answer any questions or provide you with local knowledge during your stay. Other services such as housekeeping, catering, babysitters, and grocery unpacking can be arranged on request.

This property is available for year round rental. This property does have a minimum stay requirement, however, please do contact us as we try to be as flexible as possible. We try to accommodate early check in/out for international guests.

                      Check out the harbor views! 08/23/2014

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:

                      This house was fantastic, especially the wide panoramic view of the harbor. The entire back of this house is VIEW, VIEW, VIEW. You can see the glimmering ocean in almost every window. It is stunningly beautiful and made me realize what a pretty city Sydney is.

                      The rest of the house is quite nice as well. There is a large commercial stove in the kitchen that would make even the most serious chef happy. The living room is open and spacious with nice clean comfortable couches and an entertainment /music system anyone would love. We did not watch too much of the huge 60+ inch TV, though, because the view was outstanding and the beach was just took a short walk down the road. While we were down at the beach we noticed several nice restaurants along the shore. All are good but the Bathhouse restaurant on the ocean was our favorite.

                      But this review is about the house. When you go downstairs there is a kids’ room with 3 beds, a bath, a big 60 inch TV, Xbox360 and plenty of built in toys to play with. You may have a hard time getting your kids out of the house but the beach down the road usually did the trick for us.

                      I have saved the best for last. The owners’ retreat is fantastic and includes a reading lounge, a clean open dressing area with large closets, and a truly breathtaking view. The furnishings are nice and the bed is quite comfortable, but the view is simply historic. We found ourselves waking up slower each day just so we could lie in bed a little longer and enjoy the fantastic view.

                      There are many other items to mention as well - the private pool, the fantastic indoor- outdoor dining area, and the top notch furnishings.

                      Everything about the house was professional and easy. The property agent was fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. Mosman was an easy ferry ride into the CBD of Sydney. Close to the beach. Close to the zoo. Great neighborhood. We will certainly be looking forward to staying here again.

                      We very much enjoyed our stay. The house is the best vacation rental we have stayed in.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About: We have been relocated overseas for awhile and have often stayed in fabulous homes around the globe. We understand the importance of being in a home away from home. This house is it! The house has a very relaxed beach feel and it is a great house for families as well as those on corporate business. The house has a huge WOW factor and is great for casual entertaining.

                      Why Mosman:
                      This property is located in one of the most beautiful and exclusive areas of Sydney. We just love the beach lifestyle and water sports - sailing, swimming and kayaking and still be close to the CBD. The famous Tarango Zoo is in our backyard and we love to ride the ferry into the city. Most of all we just love swimming and hanging out on the beach and exploring the rock platform below us. The restaurants in the area are very kid friendly and in easy walking distance as are all the shops. Most importantly the property comes with your own concierge - Jennifer - who can assist with travel advice, restaurants and how to experience Sydney as a local!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Beautiful house, clean beaches, warm water, cosmopolitan beach area!! Close to the city and attractions. Mosman is a prestigious area and public transport is on your door step!
