Sydney, the gateway to Australia, is one of the world’s premier destinations. It is a city of spectacular natural beauty and stunning world famous architecture. Above all, it is renowned for its free-spirited outdoor lifestyle.

Overseas visitors delight in the diversity of walking opportunities that exist within easy reach of our home. So close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge (SHB) and the Opera House (OH) the Rocks and Botanical Gardens (BG).

Discover the charm of this magnificent harbour alone or on on guided walks that hug the coastline. Watch world-class yachts sail by as you hike along the high sea cliffs at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Museums, Beaches, Art.

Take a guided tour and learn about Australia’s early history as you stroll through the alleys and laneways in the now-eclectic Rocks district. Just a short 12 min Ferry ride from our home that passes under the SHB and right by the OH. And guess what? Taking the Ferry is by far the preferred option of residents in this area. It’s just a ‘spectacular’ way for them to start the working day.
If you need convincing about our location then I suggest you take time to read though our many reviews.

SUMMARY:
Self contained three bedroom water view house. Common entrance shared with studio.
IF YOU COULD WALK ON WATER IT IS 1 KM TO THE CITY. IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE. If, like us, you can't walk on water the following will help.

• Direct east facing, sunny, balconies onto views, east, south, and west.
•Located on a corner with no other houses to the right. Just garden and more Inner Habour views.
• Fully equipped modern kitchen
• Shower with Bath
• Area: 115m^2 (interior) + 4 m^26m^2 balconies + 24m^2 Rooftop Garden.

FULL DETAILS:
Just 15 km or 20 mins by taxi from Airport.

Three areas described above can accommodate total 14 adults, perfect for a large group, with plenty of privacy!
Buses run every 15 mins. Ferries run every 20 mins to Darling Harbour & City (Circular Quay/Opera House, & North Sydney. Water taxi service also available. Close attractions include: Historic homes directly opposite, Harbour Bridge, Opera House, The Rocks, Star Casino, Aquarium, Chinatown, Fish Markets, Barangaroo, Cruise Terminal. Conveniently situated just minutes to Darling Street's vibrant cosmopolitan cafe/restaurant strip of the Balmain friendly village, transport is a breeze. Transport is virtually at your doorstep. A brisk walk to the Ferry Wharf would take you just 10 minutes, and there are plenty of cafes along the way for brunch. A walk to the nearest bus stop on Darling Street, would take 2 minutes. A 12 minute ferry ride from Balmain to the City takes you past two of Australia’s most recognized icons. Under the spectacular Sydney Harbor Bridge and right past The Opera House to alight at Circular Quay. From the Opera House you can take a scenic walk along Sydney Harbour foreshore or through The Royal Botanic Gardens.
Parking is easy at this property and it's a charming walk to Balmain shops.

Set in one of the world’s most beautiful cities we are located so close to the The Sydney Opera House, The Harbour Bridge, Barangaroo, Anzac Bridge, Darling Harbour, and Casino, Aquarium, Chinatown & Sydney’s CBD. Balmain today is one of Sydney’s’ most sought after Inner City Habourside locations with an enviable, friendly family village lifestyle.

The house is fully furnished including hotel quality white linen and towels, china, glassware, flatware and cookware. Set on two levels, three, if you count the rooftop terrace. On the ground level is the kitchen, a combined pantry and laundry with WC, then the formal dining room and elegant living/lounge room with French doors leading on to a front patio with unobstructed City and Habour views. Both rooms have white Carrara marble surround fire places fueled by Natural Gas. Upstairs are the 3 bedrooms each furnished traditionally and complemented with original brass bed. There is an ensuite bathroom off the rear bedroom. Both front and rear bedrooms have sizable wrap around balconies offering extensive views to The Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Anzac Bridge, Darling Harbour and the Sydney City skyline itself with cruise liners berthing directly opposite the house. In summer you can expect some relief from the heat at about 11 am each day as the cross breezes arrive off Sydney Harbour.

In the event that you love the sound of this house but need another bedroom for the Nanny, teenager, parent or grandparent who prefer their own space but you need them safe and close at hand, we can help here too as the house does have a stunning self-contained unit (separate rental : VRBO ref 360717) that can be combined with the house rental or as a stand-alone option. If this sounds like it fits your requirements you would need to bring it to our attention so we could negotiate its inclusion during your stay.
PLEASE NOTE. If you wish to have the house to yourself and for us NOT to rent the studio to a third party you must inform us prior to confirming your booking. There is a common garden and entry. Your rate would be adjusted by negotiation.
