Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Excellent clean Quiet home. Beautiful views.

Very pleased with the apartment accomadations and location. The umbrella was very useful.

Had some issues with the bathroom: flushing the toilet with the sensor setup didn't always work and the fan was a bit load to leave on all the time.

Overall I really enjoyed the property.

Excellent host with good communication skills

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review and great to hear you enjoyed the apartment. The toilet flush sensor does take a little getting used to, and I am sorry to hear you experienced problems with it. Thanks for your comments about the bathroom fan also, as this type of feedback is very helpful to us. Warm Regards, Carla

a truly delightful unit

  • 5 of 5

This unit was always a delight to come home to each day -in fact we didn't want to leave the view! The unit was extremely clean when we arrived and so much care had been taken to provide every comfort. It was beautifully decorated and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. It was in a very quiet area and being so close to the ferry was another plus.

Perfect location, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Good quality property in a great location. Beautifully presented, and well equipped. Proximity to ferry stop made getting around so easy. The water outlook is super and having breakfast or a pre dinner glass of wine looking out was very relaxing.

Kirribilli is a vibrant community with lots to offer should you wish to stay local. We enjoyed a mixture of places during our stay, some in town, and some around the locality.

Having laundry facilities was a bonus, and having the kitchen meant we could cook our food from time to time helping to keep costs down.

Carla was great to deal with, very efficient, and willing to assist with some pre-arrival queries not directly related to the property rental.

Would definitely recommend. Will stay next time we come to Sydney, hopefully next year.

The property was a highlight of our trip to Sydney

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our first trip to Sydney, much influenced by Carla & Ian's apartment in Careening Cove.

The property is just as described (sadly not always the case). A very pretty outlook over to Kirribilli, stunning in the early morning sun, and so close to the ferry stop that we could almost wait until we saw the boat coming round the corner before setting off and then it took not much more than 15 mins to Circular Quay.

Kirribilli village itself is only a pleasant 12 minute walk though a little park and we found all we needed in terms of food and drink there.

All in all, we were very pleased indeed with our choice and enjoyed our contacts with Carla the owner.

We have no hesitation at all in recommending this property, which we have already done to friends, and would love to come back ourselves.

This was probably the highlight of a 6 week trip to New Zealand and Australia.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ian for your lovely review. We were very impressed at how much you saw on your trip here and it is nice to see you took advantage of our local yacht club at Careening Cove. We appreciated you leaving the apt so clean and tidy, and we look forward to your next visit along with family and friend's. Warm Regards Carla and Ian

FABULOUS APARTMENT AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Sydney and I highly recommend this comfortable and clean apartment which is just steps away to the scenic ferry ride into Circular Quay and the CBD. The views to Sydney Harbour are amazing from inside the apartment or out in the garden next to Careening Cove while relaxing after a day out. I enjoyed the tasteful décor and original contemporary art in all the rooms. It is a lovely short 10 minute walk to the shops, train station and restaurants in Kirribilli. The owners were very nice and easy to deal with and I hope to stay again on my next visit.

Great North Sydney Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as fabulous as it looks in the pictures. We enjoyed five days here at the end of November 2014. It is perfect for a couple looking for a great apartment and neighborhood to stay in while visiting Sydney. The apartment is tastefully furnished and decorated and set up perfectly with a settee and table by the window looking out on the small bay. It is also very clean, bright, and quiet and Carla and Ian have equipped it with everything you will need. It is a short, enjoyable walk into the Sydney harbor-side suburb, Kirribilli, where there are small local shops and restaurants. Of all the places (and there have been many over the years) we have stayed, we found the attention to detail in this apartment the best. The bottle of Australian wine on arrival, as well as all the necessary cooking pans and utensils and basic condiments that were in the apartment made it easy to enjoy and relax in this little oasis from the moment we arrived. We loved using the ferry, which was a short walk down the street. If you will be in the city for a few days we recommend buying an Opal transport card, which makes getting around very convenient and easy. The wireless Internet in the apartment set up easily and functioned well with a strong signal. Some of the larger ferries also have Internet. Purchasing a SIM card, which is reasonably priced, on arrival at the airport would come in handy around the city and be useful for making phone calls. We travel only with carry on luggage so it was very easy to go from the airport to the apartment on the train and ferry. We highly recommend this apartment and look forward to staying in this apartment again.

A great location on picturesque Careening Cove in Sydney Harbour and starting point for your holiday stay in the Sydney area.

It is a lovely stroll over the Harbour bridge to Circular Quay and The Rocks on foot. This takes about 35 minutes.

The ferry is just outside your door, less than 2 minutes away, to travel to Circular Quay and the Sydney CBD. This is a very scenic ferry ride of 10-15 minutes with great views of the Harbour, Opera House and Harbour bridge.

Opal cards are available at Circular Quay Ferry Wharf 5 and other outlets. Details can be found online.These are great value for travel by ferry, bus and train.

The well known Luna (amusement) Park is a 15-20 minute walk from the apartment and not far from the small village of Kirribilli. Kirribilli is very popular with locals and visitors and is a nice stroll of 10-15 minutes where you will find interesting boutique shops, all amenities and groceries for your stay, as well as a great range of quality restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes.

A short scenic walk down a quiet lane will take you to the Careening Cove Marina at Milson's Park as well as the Ensemble Theatre where live performances are held on a regular basis. This is also a scenic route to walk to Kirribilli.

Ferry travel is the best way to see the sights and there are many options for day trips and sunset dinner tours.
