Property 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 located in the prestigious suburb of Mosman, and is a stone's throw to two harbor beaches - Balmoral Beach and Chinamen's 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!

Head to Balmoral Beach and eat breakfast at Bathers Pavilion or the Boathouse, paddle a kayak, hire a sale boat, take a swim or just stretch out on the beach and watch the day slip away. In the evening head to either the Public Dining Room, La Republica, Awaba or back to Bathers. If you prefer a more relaxed dinner, Bottom of the Harbour is the place to go for your picnic on the beach.

Mosman is a great place to shop with many new and up and coming designers or if you prefer head into the city and explore Castlereigh Street or the Westfield on Pitt Street. Museums and Galleries are easily accessible as is Taronga Zoo.

This house is best suited for holiday makers, 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 and departure, 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.

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/late check in/out for international guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wambirri.

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 NSW, Australia:
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!
