About The Owner

We have a beautiful architect design home with a seperate one bedroom apartment. This is my parents apartment, for when they visit us from vancouver. When they are not here, we like to share the beautiful place with others. I am a professional contemporary landscape artist and you can see my work at danadion. I have a studio uner the house and I am inspired by the water, the bush, and nature around me. My husband is a university professor and we have three grown up children.

Why The Owner chose North Shore Sydney

Feel good place you will not want to leave. Everything you need within a close reach of the city yet feels like you are in paradise and home.

What makes this apartment unique

Luxury comfortable stylish stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

am just back home, after more than two

months of travelling around Australia.

Where I stay is very important to me,

and is integral part of the travel

experience, so I spend quite a bit of

time researching my accommodation ahead

of travelling. I had the good fortune

of staying in some pretty nice places

along the way – but this apartment wins

top ranking, no contest.

Most web sites make the place look

better than it really is, but here the

reverse is true : nothing can prepare

you for the impact of the view when you

first walk into the flat – it is truly

stunning. And then you discover all

the other treasures, big and small :

the birdlife , the tranquillity, the

comfort, Dana’s paintings on the wall,

the wonderful ferry ride into town under

Harbour Bridge, washing powder in the

cupboard, ferry and bus timetables &

piles of information leaflet on the

desk, broadband internet ... All these

things combine to making this a real

home with a warm and welcoming feel to

it : you can tell that the owners have

travelled and know exactly what you need

when getting to a strange place. There

is one danger though : you could stay on

the terrace for hours just enjoying

being there, and not do any sightseeing

!!

I would not want to stay anywhere else

in the Sydney area : thank you Dana for your hospitality !

A perfect location in a great neighborhood, easy access to just about everything and oh, that view!

  • 5 of 5

We only had 5 nights in Sydney but we could not have picked a better place. Dana and Pieter were not only gracious hosts who explained all there is around us and how to get there, but they have furnished a lovely, modern living space that feels warm and accommodating. The wall of glass that opens up to the outdoors lets you take in the great scene highlighted by the water, dotted by recreational and fishing boats. The birds and vegetation complete the picture, giving you a "tree house" effect. The peaceful neighborhood is great -- quiet and hilly with some interesting architecture, and just a short walk to the ferry dock for a brief and scenic commute into the heart of Sydney. We loved doing this daily and got pretty good at finding our way around by bus, ferry and train. It's all accessible from this location. Dining, groceries and more are just a short walk away through the quiet Greenwich neighborhood.

The apartment itself could not offer more! The artwork, furnishings and modern appliances give you all you need to prepare meals, do some laundry or just sit and relax before or after heading out about town. There is high-speed WiFi so you will always be connected to tell your friends and family what a great place you found in Sydney! With an open wall to the view outside, it makes all these activities that much more enjoyable. Whether it's for a short stay or longer, it would be hard to consider anything different if you want to live like a local but have all a visitor could want just steps away.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Sydney on a Sunday night. Dana had kindly picked up some groceries for us which was very much appreciated. The apartment is absolutely fantastic- it has everything needed to make your stay perfect. Fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, desk, comfy bed, large shower but the VIEW is what makes this the most comfortable, restful home to return to after a busy day in Sydney. Within an easy, pleasant walk to the ferry, the house is in a perfect location. Dana and Piet were helpful with any questions we had, but with the private entrance we were separate onto ourselves. We would highly recommend this Sydney oasis!! The best place we have ever stayed.....

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for a week in early November. The space is wonderful - - - tastefully decorated, comfortable furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, washer, and on and on. But it's the VIEWS that are really spectacular and the serenity of it all. An easy 8-10 minute walk to the ferry wharf and a lovely 20 minute ferry ride to Circular Quay (the main ferry/train station in the CBD). It's beautiful to approach Sydney from the water!

Dana was a gracious host, with tips and suggestions for restaurants, sights and visits. Being in Greenwich was lovely and having the city just a ferry ride away.

Next time we're staying for a month!

Great Stay in Sydney

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable & quiet apartment with outstanding views in a fabulous location. Easy access to ferry system that will take you all over Sydney harbor and highlights. We loved taking the short walks thru the lovely neighborhood to the ferry system, then onto the sites, hikes, restaurants, etc we had planned to experience.

The apartment was very well equipped for us and nicely designed for privacy. The hosts were excellent and assisted us whenever we needed them. The large open doors and windows brought the outdoors in, which we loved.

Definitely would stay here again without hesitation.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment with great views and easy access to the city. We stayed for seven nights. Last two nights were short. Buider started rebuilding downstairs at eight o'clock. Apologies but the next morning the builder started at seven. Pity that owner had so less control over the builder.

Cool apartment for ferry hopping

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sydney for 6 days and chose this apartment because we have friends in Greenwich but I'd recommend it to anyone. The apartment itself is spacious with a fabulous terrace overlooking the river. Since we had been travelling for the previous 3 weeks the laundry room was especially welcome too! From a location perspective it is a short walk to the ferry and we used this as our main method of transport. There is also a little parade of shops nearby with a lovely cafe, grocery store and pharmacy. There is a fish restaurant too but we never got to that. In all we had a great stay in spite of some questionable weather at times!
