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 lane ways 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.

Beautiful Balmain View Home That Enhances Sydney Experience
When reviewing potential homes for our week-long stay In Sydney, I was captivated by the pictures of this home. The view and interior appeared outstanding and it's location in Eastern Balmain appealed to my adventurous spirit, close but yet so far away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Even better than expected, the house provided all the modern conveniences but the character of an older home. The views were breathtaking from both the living area and the master bedroom and the two balconies. The kitchen provided all of the essentials for meal preparation and the beds and bedding were first class. Incredibly quiet since it sits on a dead end street. Adding to the fun of our stay was the short walk to the ferry and the 10 minute ride to Circular Quay. The added bonus was nearby Darling Street with it's hip vibe of great eating choices and first class quality food for home preparation. Although we ate many meals in Sydney, Darling Street provided many pleasurable meals, as well. If not in the mood to walk, we found taxi and Uber very convenient. On our previous visit to Sydney, we stayed at the Four Seasons and I thought our experience this time was far superior. A perfect getaway for two couples or a family with three or less children.
The house is in a great location. It is very convenient to downtown Sydney, the opera house, and the beaches. Our host was very gracious and informative, he helped us with transportation and the best areas to visit. The communication and instructions were excellent. The home is comfortable, the large kitchen is well appointed, and the view from the terrace is lovely.
I know all of those in your party were so pleased you found and chose us for your stay. You all made the most of it and I'm sure the memories of your long stay here in Australia will be cherished and the envy of your friends when you sit down and relive the moments with them.

Home was very comfortable, clean and everything the photos reflected. Giacomo went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. Great stay.

Wonderful location. Perfect and great facilities.
Great Village atmosphere virtually right in the heart of the City. It's got everything you need for a short or long stay. The city is right in front of the house presenting great views that we enjoyed each morning on the front balcony patio with extended awning if it was hot. So nice.
The Ferry Service is the only way to travel to the city really because the trip is SOOO beautiful passing under the Harbour Bridge and right past the Opera House. a 12 minute ride that is too quick. Busses and trains all interconnect extremely well making it easy to get around. We caught the bus one time to get to a different part of the city and it took 10 minutes to the QVB. There is also a service to Barangaroo, and Darling Harbour, also right opposite the house with lots to see and do there and packed with restaurants and bars.
Our hosts were so helpful and very generous with the amenities that they provide during the stay.
I read a lot of the other reviews before booking here and they all lived up to it. This is a really great location. You can't go wrong.
Thanks always nice to hear.

6 Friends had fantastic stay here.
A bunch of Texans traveling, we ended our New Zealand cruise in Sydney and all 3 couples stayed here. Wonderful hosts and the house was everything that was as advertised and more. Fabulous location and for a group who has never visited Australia, Giacomo was a HUGE help to us in navigating our way around.
If you have any reservations about staying here---don't. We absolutely loved it!
Thanks Donna, we loved haveing you stay as well and thanks for taking such great care of our house

We were very pleased with this home. It was exactly as described and the location was great! We especially loved the front bedroom, we left the french doors open and were able to see the harbor lights from our bed. The outside patio in the front of the house was also very nice. The hosts Giacomo & Lyn were wonderful and very helpful in every way and made our stay very pleasant. It was our first time in Sydney and staying in this VRBO made it even better!!
Thanks so much Renee. We are always pleased that our clients love the location and the house. it is just so easy to get anywhere and such a great village atmosphere.
