Ideal for couples looking for a quiet neighbourhood with charm and character. Enjoy the nearby small village of Kirribilli and Milsons Point with North Sydney CBD also a short distance away.

This apartment is newly refurbished in an older style 3 storey building of 12 units. There is a flight of stairs with a hand rail from street level to access the apartment.

A car is not necessary during your stay as the ferry is just outside your door and the bus and train are only 10 minutes walk away.

If feeling adventurous, why not take a walk over the harbour bridge to the city and the ferry back. Bridge climbs are also a popular activity.

The Bedroom consists of a new Queen bed and large built in wardrobe. There are double blinds on the windows which open and lock for your privacy.

The bathroom is clean and bright with a shower only. There is a hairdryer available for use and a combination Washer/Dryer in the bathroom cupboard.

The study is a comfortable bright room to relax in with some water views, and a desk provides a place for your laptop or to catch up on some work.

The lounge/living room and dining room are open plan with great views of Careening Cove and Sydney Harbour. The night lights across the water are stunning.

The boutique village of Kirribilli has many specialist shops, cafes and restaurants and is a short 10-15 minute scenic walk from the apartment.

For your entertainment there is a modern smart TV, Ipod/Android docking station for listening to your favourite music or podcasts. Some games and magazines are also provided for your pleasure.

Free WiFi available.

After a big day out, relax in the back yard (common) and enjoy the scenery and harbour views with a glass of wine or cup of tea before heading to Kirribilli or Circular Quay. Both of these locations are popular for cafes, restaurants and bars.

There is a clothesline on the side of the building for your use.

The kitchen is equipped with all modern appliances including oven/microwave combo, 2 gas burners and dishwasher. The fridge and freezer are a good size with an ice maker in the freezer.

A stove top espresso coffee maker and plunger are available with coffee and tea provided for your arrival.

There are some basic condiments in the apartment for your use.

There is no air conditioner in this apartment. Windows can be opened allowing a nice sea breeze inside. A portable fan is provided as well as a portable heater in the cooler months.

This is generally a quiet street with no highway or bridge traffic noise. However, at times there may be building maintenance work or construction/renovation work taking place on the street which is beyond our control.

Overall you will find this apartment very comfortable and you can't beat this lovely waterfront location!

Enjoy a complimentary bottle of Aussie wine on your arrival!

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.

We had no idea how much we would enjoy this beautifully appointed suite with it's lovely harbour views and well stocked kitchen. We love this location with the ferry just steps away to Circular Quay and a short walk to the charming Kirribilli Village and train station. Thank you Carla for providing all the helpful maps and tourist information. Coming from Canada this was immensely appreciated!!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful retreat! Our first visit to Australia so we were a bit concerned about being outside the central city area. But we quickly discovered the Opal electronic payment card which we used to pay for the ferry, bus and sub-way (max of $15 per day - so we felt free to come and go anytime). Since the ferry is only steps away from the front door, we were literally in the Central Business District of Sydney in 17 minutes (10 minutes going back) , passing by the opera house each time. The place is wonderful with everything we needed and grocery not far away. This is the ideal place to access everything Sydney has to offer and yet get away from it all in minutes, almost as if you have gone miles into the country!

Nice two person condo

  • 5 of 5
This is a great apartment. The area is quiet, the amenities are up to date, the view is exactly as advertised and the kitchen is well supported with spotless dishes and cooking pans. But why cook when you can take the ferry into town. We got a multi day pass and used the ferries regularly and multiple times per day. A 50 meter walk to the dock and Downtown is only a 10 minute ride with beautiful views. The owners were courteous and helpful. If you have heavy luggage do note the stairs from street level down to the apartment. That said, the stairs are well lit and rails on both sides make the short distance relatively easy to negotiate. The apartment is highly recommended from our experience.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your review Don and Diane, and we are happy to hear you took advantage of the wonderful ferry system in Sydney Harbour. I recently updated the listing to add the stair access from the street, so thanks for the feedback about that omission. I hope to meet you on your next visit to Australia.
Kind Regards - Carla

Perfect location,lovely neighborhood,easy access.

  • 5 of 5
Ian and Carla's 1 bedroom apartment is a perfect accommodation for 2 people to use as a base for Sydney exploration. Located right on Sydney Harbour and only a couple houses down from the ever-convenient North Sydney ferry landing, it couldn't have been a better choice for us. Quiet and quaint. The backyard is great for sitting and relaxing with a drink and watching the sailboats pass. Well-appointed and comfortable for 2. (Smallish for more, but a second bedroom with pull-out couch could accommodate a third.) Carla was a pleasure to work with; very accommodating and helpful. All-in-all, we simply could not have made a better choice! Thank you, Carla and Ian, for helping to make our first Australia visit that much more memorable. Tim and Laura, Colorado USA

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review TIm and Laura and it was great to have you both stay in the apartment! We welcome you back anytime you are in Sydney.
We would like to note that the pull out couch (sofa bed) is for the Owners use only and as Tim mentioned this small apartment is perfect for 2 adults.
All the best,
Carla and Ian

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

To walk to Circular Quay and The Rocks over the Harbour bridge, takes approximately 35 minutes.

Catch the ferry only 100 metres from your doorstep to Circular Quay and the CBD of Sydney. This is a very scenic ferry ride of 10-15 minutes with great views of the Harbour, Opera House and Harbour bridge. Multi Pass tickets are available at Circular Quay Ferry Wharf.

From Circular Quay you can walk to many sites including the Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Darling Harbour, The Sydney Fish Markets, Chinatown, Hyde Park, and the historic precinct of The Rocks. Manly Beach, Neutral Bay, Cockatoo Island, Taronga Zoo, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art and many other galleries and museums are all within reach by foot, ferry, train or bus. Transport is plentiful.

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.

Hop on a ferry and visit places such as Manly Beach and shops, Taronga Zoo and Darling Harbour, a must see also. If you wish to explore a little further away, you can take the bus or train to the shops of Chatswood, Neutral Bay and Mosman.

The bus and train stations are a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. Milsons Point train station is closest.

Bus, Rail and Ferry Multi Pass is available at Circular Quay.

The apartment is half an hours drive from Sydney International and Domestic airport. The cost is about $50 by taxi cab. You can also take a train from the airport to Central, then on to Circular Quay, and then board a ferry to North Sydney. It is a three minute walk to the apartment from the ferry!

This apartment is only suitable for 2 adults and non-smokers only.

No parties or overnight guests are permitted in the apartment..

Thank you
