"I can't believe how fortunate I was to find this studio apartment. I was in a rush to find and book a place, I found this place, decided it "looked good", didn't look any further and booked it. What a delight it was/is. The host/owners: Lyn and Giacomo, live in the house on another part of the property. They are wonderful, generous hosts who are happy to share tips and suggestions that practically ensure a wonderful stay in Sydney. I can't say that you'll get to sample a pizza fresh from their wood-fired pizza oven, but I did and was grateful for it. Delicious. So, the apartment itself: modern, fully-fitted space perfect for one or two people. Full kitchen, snazzy bathroom, excellent WIFI, which I used daily (and a TV which I did not), an operable glass wall that opens up to a balcony overlooking the beautiful garden AND the harbor and CBD beyond. It's very special. Location: Again, how fortunate I was (and you will be, too). The apartment is a 10 minute walk to the East Balmain ferry wharf. The ferry connects directly to the main ferry terminal (Circular Quay), which accesses all the trains and buses. If you walk the opposite direction on Darling Street, you come upon a variety of very nice shops, restaurants, grocery markets, and just about anything you want or need. Again, very convenient, and a pleasant surprise for me. I don't often write lengthy reviews (if I do at all) of places I've rented, but Giacomo's and Lyn's place is unique and so are they. And I do find these reviews extremely helpful, so would like to contribute to others' efforts to find a great place to stay in Sydney. I had a wonderful time there and bet you will too."
