TIP. Click on the 'location' tab which takes you to MAP and 'drag the Pin to the LEFT boarder, to the 9 o'clock position and the CITY OF SYDNEY , Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, Opera House etc appear.
That's how close you are to everything. Now read the rest below or go to reviews and come and stay with us. It is a unforgettable location.
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.

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.
