For the times you want a rest there is digital HD TV and DVD player and a selection of DVD's & books. Free Wi-Fi is available

Please note that the property does not have full kitchen facilities but does have a large bar fridge & freezer, microwave, toaster and toaster oven and coffee and tea making facilities. There are 8 popular cafes and 3 restaurants all with excellent food a short level walk away. and most guests take advantage of these. If you don't feel like going out or cooking there are many cuisine choices for home delivery available.

An electric barbeque and outdoor setting exclusively for guests’ use is situated on the patio from which there are park and water views to the harbour and North Head.

Beach towels and bath robes are supplied for guests’ use.”

Off street parking is in front of the balcony/patio.

Just up the hill in cosmopolitan Mosman Village you can browse through the many boutiques, gourmet food shops and galleries or perhaps try a good $7 steak meal at the Hotel.

Not to be missed, world famous Taronga Zoo, with stunning views of the city skyline across the harbour is only minutes away.

About Jill Jensen

I'm a fifth generation Australian, born in Adelaide where I stayed till I decided to travel to see the rest of the world. I spent most of my time overseas in Europe and North America but also traveled to Asia, New Guinea and later Cuba.

After returning to Australia, & being a keen snow skier, I worked in a ski resort for two seasons and then decided to go to Sydney. Once there I fell in love with the harbour, beaches and the weather and ended up staying and buying a property at Balmoral Beach.

I later married and had a son who kept me pretty busy whilst I was still running my own business in finance.

I'm a keen sailor and love the outdoors, including camping in the bush and 4WDriving.

Time went by and I recently sold my business and am now semi retired and running Balmoral Beachside Getaway!!.

I love giving tips and advice to my guests about out-of-the- way places most tourists don't hear about and the 'must see' things to do & see & how to get there.

Jill Jensen purchased this studio in 1984

Why Jill Jensen chose Balmoral Beach

When I arrived in Sydney my first job was as a representative for a wine company. My sister soon joined me here and we decided to look for a bigger flat to share. One day I invited her to come with me to see a bit more of the area as I drove around visiting my customers. As we were driving down the hill to see the owner of Balmoral Cellars my sister exclaimed 'What a great view - I'd love to live here!' I replied 'Forget it, we'll never be able to afford it!'

A week later whilst looking through the paper for flats to rent she found one for us to look at in Mosman. We met the agent at her office and she drove us here to Balmoral, much to our surprise. As soon as we saw the location, the big house and wonderful magnolia tree in bloom in the front garden, plus the proximity to the beach we said 'We'll take it ' ---before we even went inside.!

More than 10 years later I bought it and moved in after renovating and now love it so much I never want to leave!.

What makes this studio unique

The property is unique because during the week and in the cooler months you feel as if you are living in a quiet seaside village despite only being 10-20 minutes away from one of the world's most beautiful, bright and cosmopolitan cities. The area is teeming with native wildlife, including cockatoos, kookaburras, lorrikeets, possums & flying foxes.

The accommodation is quiet and private and is very well situated with a large park opposite to the south and the clean sandy beach & crystal clear water only metres away to the east. The area is very safe, public transport is almost at the doorstep, and there are many delightful cafes and restaurants only a short level walk away, including a great fish & chip shop where you can either eat in or take your food away to eat on the beach.

Alternatively If you want a short bus ride , or, if feeling energetic, a walk up the hill, you can browse through Mosman village's many boutiques and galleries or stop for a drink or lunch at one of the many eateries in the village.

World famous Taronga Zoo .is also nearby, - either a good bushwalk along tracks surrounded by native flora punctuated by stunning harbour views or a short 5-10 minute bus ride.

Have stayed here several times now. Excellent location, friendly welcome and a very comfotable environment all round. Close to Balmoral beach (real close), Mosman shops just up the hill. Free bus service on Mosman Rider gets you around the area. Definitely recommend (and have) to family and friends.

Amazingly quiet location.

  • 4 of 5
This studio so close to the beach and promenade walk is in a very quiet location with a very friendly and helpful owner. It is furnished in a comfortable and elegant way and very clean throughout. I didn't take my vehicle and found I had no need of one as there is a very good variety of eating places within easy walking distance. A lovely place for a couple or single person to spoil themselves on good eating and comfortable relaxation.

Map

BALMORAL HISTORY

The name comes from Queen Victoria’s Scottish estate. The suburb is made up of the hillsides leading down to a bay with two beaches, Edwards to the north and Balmoral to the south. It started rather humbly as an artists’ colony of tents and shacks, but with the dawn of the 20th century, its natural beauty and proximity to the city drew affluent with a discerning eye. The artists departed and their rough dwellings gave way to fine family homes & more recently, elegant apartments to make Balmoral one of the worlds most exclusive harbourside areas.

SHOPPING

Balmoral is where you take a break from shopping to stretch out and relax. But when the urge hits, Mosman is only at the top of the hill. Try well-known names like Country Road, Saba, Victoria Cooper, Laura Ashley, along with the intriguing homeware stores, and one of the cities greatest cheese shops.

SPORTS & FITNESS

The very energetic can take to the pavements, bush tracks and hills for a walk, jog or cycle. Historic WW2 Defence forts & tunnels can be seen along local National Park bushwalks .

When the weather is warmer, then its windsurfing in the harbour, or a few laps of the beach or baths. Nearby Mosman has excellent gym facilities for those rare times when you don’t want to be outside.

TRANSPORT TO THE CITY AND BEYOND

Balmoral is only 8.5km north of the CBD, and either a swift drive via the Bridge or Harbour tunnel, or by bus (bus stop is 60 metres away) to either the City, Zoo or Chatswood. The Zoo bus also connects with the Ferry, which will also take you to the City or other ferries & bus or train connections all over Sydney.

Notes:
It is wonderful to wake to the sounds of the birds in the morning and watch the sun rise slowly in the sky. Equally lovely to see the cliffs on the other side of the harbour turn pink as the sun goes down in the west in the evening to the tunes of the birds singing their last songs of the day. Perhaps you'll then take a walk along the sand before having your evening meal in the historic Bathers Pavilion on the beach front. On the other hand you might decide to order home delivery from one of the local restaurants or cook your own meal on your balcony barbeque. The choice is yours.
