This is an opportunity to experience the real Sydney lifestyle, a real haven away from the city noise,traffic and stress. Although if you require the night clubs and party atmosphere of a large city - this apartment would not be suitable. If you wish you can Experience Sydney with a local, understand its culture, explore its hidden locations unknown to most tourists and be part of the Aussie way of life. This type of vacation package is not available with hotels and most accommodation packages. The apartment has a full gourmet kitchen with the latest appliances and highest quality furniture. Set amongst the tree tops it affords seclusion, privacy and bushland views. There are bushwalks from your front door and the opportunity if you wish to share breakfast on the outside deck with an array of native parrots that visit each morning.
Just 12 miles from the city in a quiet bushland upmarket neighborhood. There are various ways to travel to the city, by car 30/35 min. A relaxing scenic journey by train and ferry if you are not in a hurry or by train alone. There is a rail station with a direct service to the city within a 5 min walk of the apartment. It is safe, frequent and very reliable. Also within minutes is a large shopping mall, a wildlife sanctuary where you can see and touch Koalas and Kangaroos and access to the KuringGai Chase National Park which is Sydney's premier park. With natural bushwalks, hidden waterways, aboriginal rock carvings and a cultural centre, its an ideal opportunity to view Sydney in a manner that has changed little in the past 200 years.
Personal Tours: An added advantage of staying at our Sydney Holiday Apartment is the availability of personal tours. Your hosts have a SUV (4WD) and Boat and if required tours are available on a daily basis to Sydney's premier locations and to other locations that are unknown and rarely visited even by Sydney residents. Sydney has 100s of miles of waterways many of which are totally inaccessible without the use of a boat. One of which is the Hawkesbury River almost 100 miles of waterway that almost circles Sydney. Here you can explore hidden secluded beaches, bays and inlets at the mouth of this river together with its great bird and wildlife and the rugged unchanged landscape which forms part of the National Park. *** Recently 2 guests Donna and Mike from Bend Oregon, USA undertook the abovementioned boat tour and we have included a few pictures that they took on that day. A full compilation of their day can be found on our 'Sydney Holiday Tours' web site.
Other Activities: Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature Golf, Shopping, Basketball Court, Boating, Wildlife Viewing

"A Perfect Christmas and New Years in Sydney"

Thank you Paul and Lauren, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Sydney is a large city and we think our location allows guests the opportunity to view the city and yet still relax in a quite secluded location when not exploring.

"Best Place ever!"
This is a first rate apt. It is totally as described in their ad, if not better. However, if you want late night partying and street life, it would not be appropriate.
It has the huge advantage of all a large cosmopolitan city has to offer plus a wonderful place to relax when you need a break plus access to all the sights greater Sydney has to offer such a a boat cruise on the Hawkesbury River,visits to small fishing villages, endless beautiful beaches and a visit to the city of Newcastle with its' harbour and headlands.
Thank you Linda & Roy. I still recall your comments "that we stayed 6 weeks and only visited the one location twice" Sydney is truly a wonderful location to explore
