Built around one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world, Sydney’s shimmering soul reveals an iconic landscape that to many signifies ‘Australia.’ The Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, myriad sandstone headlands, lazy bays and scalloped shorelines are breathtakingly beautiful. Sydneysiders know that there is more to this city than its good looks. It’s Australia’s oldest, largest and most diverse city, with captivating monuments, urban galleries, magnificent museums and outstanding sandstone buildings, a vivacious performing arts scene and an edgy multiculturalism that injects colour throughout the community.
At the heart of the city is Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson) ; the city centre runs from The Rocks and Circular Quay to Central Station in the south. The Harbour divides Sydney into the north and south, with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Harbour Tunnel connecting the two shores. Immediately to the West, (East Balmain) is where we are located with Darling Harbour also close by. You are literary just minutes from the city centre, accessible by Ferry (Darling St Wharf) or bus. The ferry passes under the Harbour Bridge and right by the Opera House to Circular Quay in 12 minutes or to Darling Harbour in 5 minutes. What are you waiting for? We have two properties side by side, VRBO 360715 and 618362, so if the one you are looking at is already booked, then check the other one. Still not sure? Then go and read our reviews.

Superbly located accomodation, spacious, comfortable, well equipped. This place is full of character and charm, as is the host Giacomo. Highly recommended for short or longer stay. We (well travelled couple) stayed 3 nights but could have happily stayed longer.

This property is absolute gorgeous. Linda and Giacomo are the perfect hosts.!
This property is perfectly situated to take you all around Sydney. The house is absolutely gorgeous and very comfortable. A short walk to the ferry takes you to every nook and cranny of Sydney. Belmain East is a beautiful hamlet of Sydney with fantastic restaurants and shopping. We came with our three children and had an absolutely wonderful time. I would highly recommend this location as well as this home .
Thanks so much Nat. We are always pleased to hear that our guests love the area so much and find it just so handy and easy to access all of the tourist sights and still be so centrally located but 'local'
