Overview

Hunters Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A 2 bedroom apartment within east access to the city by car, bus or ferry

The property stands in the Huntley's Cove an up market complex providing swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, tennis courts, gym, on site restaurant and wonderful harbour side walks. The city can be accessed by bus, car and ferry within 15 to 20 minutes. There are 14 restaurants within walking distance.

North facing, the apartment is light and airy and is ideal for harbour side living' particularly as the 2 bedrooms are at opposite ends of the apartment from one another.

What to do in Sydney: Sydney is one of the worlds greatest waterway cities with perhaps the most beautiful harbour one has ever seen. Any water activity can be found from on site swimming to sailing on the harbor or at sea, diving, snorkeling, and wind surfing (just 1 kilometer away). No visit to Sydney would be complete without visiting The opera house and if you have the nerve climbing over Sydney harbour bridge where the views are truly magnificent. Another must is to take a Captain Cook harbour cruise where you will tour the harbour in comfort and learn the detailed history of Sydney and the first fleet arrival in 1788.

Of particular delight in Sydney is the gastronomic experience which in our view, offers the best food in the world. Darling Harbour is a good place to start delighting in the many sea food restaurants, but do not miss the world famous Doyles on the southern entrance to the harbor at Watson's bay.

Historic Sydney: Sydney's history goes back some 40,000 years with the most advanced human race in the world at the time. In 1788 Europeans landed and added to the rich history. There are many historic sites, including The Rocks, a must to visit, especially during the week end market session (near Circular Quay) and only a 15 minute ferry ride from the apartment. Visit Sydney's oldest house and the plentiful museums that share this history with you. Another must is the harbour side Botanical gardens.

Shopping in Sydney: Sydney has a wonderful array of shopping opportunities. A must is to visit the Queen Victoria building - a Victorian boutique shopping center built in Victorian times. Pop in to David Jones (Australia's answer to Harrods) and enjoy lunch at the Oyster Bar, particularly enjoying Sydney Rock Oysters (the best in the world). make a special visit to Darling Harbor and enjoy the delights these shops have to offer.

JUST HAVE GREAT TIME!

Why Robert Drew chose Hunters Hill

This apartment is modern having been built in 2002 an has a great layout in that each bedroom is at the opposite ends of the apartment. The on site facilities are wonderful including, swimming pool, jacuzzi, suana, gym, tennis courts and on site restaurant. At the same time the property borders Sydney Harbour providing a wonderful walk.

What makes this apartment unique

Perhaps the most unique benefit of this apartment is that one has all of the local on site facilites and yet it is only a 15 minute ride by either bus or ferry to the centre of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had a fabulous holiday in your beautiful apartment, catching up with our son who lives in Sydney. All the transport to and from Sydney is excellent and the ferry is particularly enjoyable! Your apartment was home-from-home and lovely to go back to after a tiring day of sightseeing! Thanks again for all of the information available in the apartment, in was invaluable. If we visit Sydney again we will be back in touch! Very best wishes Sue & Martyn, UK”

First class!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely apartment in the suburbs, very peaceful location. The interior was laid out beautifully and had everything we needed. The welcome pack came in very handy. The walk to the local supermarket took about 20 minutes and the walk to the ferry was about 15 minutes. We loved taking the ferry into Sydney every day. We will be back!

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5
Usually when you rent a holiday apartment you find it to be basic and functional, not so in this case. This delightful apartment is light airy and comfortable, more like home from home and even comes with a welcome bottle of wine (thank you Robert). Everything that you might need is to hand and transport/shopping are very close by. We are staying here for a month whilst visiting family in Sydney and it has been a great choice. Highly recommended - and we are very fussy people ! Would certainly like to return. Many Thanks.

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 visited Sydney for a week's stay during August 2014 and found this apartment to be in a lovely accessible location - easy walk down to the ferry terminal and good parking available. The apartment was beautifully furnished with all the amenities you could wish for - computer, TV, separate bathrooms, equipped kitchen, balcony, washer/dryer and use of gym/Jacuzzi nearby. Robert kept in regular contact with us and his welcome information pack was very helpful and meeting Louise, the housekeeper, was invaluable. Thank you so much for such a comfortable stay as the right accommodation choice really makes your holiday so memorable.

Excellent appartment and location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, I and our 17 year old lad stayed for a week. The apartment was large, clean, tidy and very well presented. Very comfortable beds and sofas. Balcony had the sun in the morning for breakfast. Parking is a bit tight for larger cars but, plenty of extra spaces in the back carpark. Louise, on sight was great and made us feel at home and showed us how everything worked. A home real away from home. 10 min walk over the traffic lights to the ferry into Circular key (only 30mins on the ferry and very cheep way to travel. Nearest Coles 10 mins drive down the road. We had an absolutely fabulous time and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the Sydney area.

Elegant and relaxing condo!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely week in this condo while visiting relatives in Sydney. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the home, the cleanliness and the convenience of the facilities. Louise, the house keeper, was incredibly helpful and friendly. It was wonderful to arrive to a fridge stocked with some starter groceries, and a nice bottle of chilled wine! We enjoyed our stay here immensely and hope to return again in the not too distant future! Would highly recommend this condo for your stay in Sydney.

Lovely comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5
Lovely apartment, very comfortable and clean. It had everything we wanted, the starter pack of groceries was most welcome as we arrived in the evening. We enjoyed travelling on the ferry, the ferry wharf was very easy to get to. There were plenty of buses if you don't want to go on the ferry although we only used the bus once. There was plenty of information about places to visit in the apartment and also ferry and bus timetables. Overall this was a lovely apartment and great to return to after a busy day. I would recommend it to anyone.

Set in beautiful parkland, bordering the harbor water front, provides a relaxing and and tranquil place to stay with walks around this part of the harbor on your door step.
