Vast, multicultural, astonishing... welcome to Australia, where the sun shines on, the sea is warm and the diverse cities are full of pleasant surprises just waiting to be discovered. There are many sides to this extraordinary country. Which will it be? Beach, city or both? In Australia, your tailored trip is just a Holiday Lettings rental away.
City & Sea
Life in Australia is a fusion of coast and city. It’s no surprise, then, that the country’s cities are seriously fun, no matter what you’re into. Sydney is distinctively glamorous and full of high-end shops and restaurants. Melbourne, on the other hand, is Australia’s boho-chic capital, where contemporary art and fast-paced life collide. Don’t forget Canberra, Brisbane or Adelaide, either.
Take it from the locals: the best way to see Australia at its finest is by car. Hit the road and head to the Great Barrier Reef. They don’t call it “Great” for nothing: this awe-inspiring area is blessed with manta rays, whales, rare species of fish and corals of every colour. Snorkel alongside them all for the experience of a lifetime.
Thanks to Australia’s rich and varied landscapes, the country also has a thriving food scene and you can expect everything to be supremely fresh. The farm-to-fork industry is big here, as is succulent seafood. Just make sure you sample a classic all-Australian barbecue on your travels. Beer or fine Australian wine in hand, of course.

A Virgin Island in the Sky
Close to City & Value for Money
The apartment came very handy while attending our conference in Sydney. Much lesser in price than what it would actually cost to live in City itself. The 2 minutes walk from Train station and then 30 mins' direct train to City offered easy connectivity. We'll be back next year! …
We rented this apartment for 4 nights as a family on our arrival in Australia. It was perfect for us; a home from home. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It is in a good location; about a 15 minute walk to the Manly Wharf and all the restaurants of Manly. However, it’s worth mentioning that the walk to Manly centre is down a fairly steep hill which you then have to walk up again on your return to the house!! It wasn’t a problem for us at all though. We used the Manly Fast Ferry to go straight into Sydney which was really convenient.
Robyn was a great host, extremely responsive with answers to queries. She recommended a great restaurant ( Hugo’s) for my son’s birthday.
One minor complaint is that there were no free tv channels, only internet tv which we couldn’t get to work for some reason but it wasn’t a big deal for us as we were out sightseeing most of the time.
All in all, a fabulous house and a very professional host. …
Stated for a few nights with the family. Easy access to ferry at Balmain (down the hill and through the park and the main street (up the hill) for bus into the city. Got train and ferry easily from the airport which was a lovely way to arrive but more expensive for 2 adults and 2 children than a taxi. The apartment itself is very nicely decorated with good WiFi and facilities. Could perhaps do with an extra chair in lounge if four are staying. Hot water occasionally ran out if we were all showering at busy times of day. It is at the top of the block so there are a fair few stairs this could be a problem for some if mobility issues but it didn't bother us at all. Overall, this is a very lovely place: clean, well appointed and the owner was lovely to deal with. She left us so much fruit on arrival we failed to get through it all! Recommended. …

APARTMENT ON RAINBOW | your private coastal oasis
We stayed in this apartment for nearly 3 weeks and enjoyed our stay.
It is in a good position with plenty of parking outside,which is quite important in Sydney.
The kitchen is well equipped but we were surprised that there was no microwave oven.Bedrooms are generously sized and beds comfortable.
The bathroom and toilet are reasonable but would benefit from an upgrade.
I would recommend this property.

Private beachfront garden apartment 4 at Coachhouse on the Beach; Apartment 4
A repeat visit to this property and it was as special as we remembered it. Well equipped and comfortable apartment with wonderful views across the ocean. The beach is literally on the doorstep and the sunrise over the sea is spectacular. We were lucky enough to see a pod of whales not too far off shore one morning whilst having breakfast. They hung around giving us a fantastic display. We will return . …
"BY THE SEA" WATERFRONT ACCOMMODATION Jervis Bay *Fantastic Winter Prices*
Amazing location with stunning views over the bay
We were delighted with our stay at ‘By the Sea’. The house was spacious and we really enjoyed sitting out on the large balcony overlooking the sea. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything in the house was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well equped with crockery and glasswear and I did not have to purchase any cleaning or washing agents re the dishwasher and washing machine. Everything worked efficiently including the large gas BBQ.
Lovely white towels and white bed linen was provided for all the rooms,
We took advantage of the discount for the Jervis Bay harbour trip and we had the experience of following a whale and her baby plus seeing several dolphins.
We would certainly like to return to this accommodation in the future. …
Galwiji Homestead was the perfect relaxing retreat we were craving. There was so much space for the 10 of us, we loved eating together on the big dining table. The ping pong table and board games went down a treat as well! We enjoyed a beautiful sunset overlooking the property and nearby sheep! Would love to come back and spend more time enjoying the outdoors, as we spent most of our time rugged up inside by the fire. Thanks for having us :) …
