Sydney City1 mile take the ferry past the OPERA house & under Syd Harbour bridge

Historic Sydney holiday home in Balmain, near White Bay Cruise Terminal
If you like this property but it is already booked for your dates, please visit our other house right next door. VRBO 618362.
Enjoy spectacular views in this very spacious three bedroom, one and a half bathroom Balmain home. There’s street parking available, or it’s just a short ferry ride to new shopping precinct, Barangaroo, with easy access from there to Circular Quay, the Sydney Opera House and the CBD (Downtown).

The Space:
Enter from the street into a gorgeous, Tuscan style stepped courtyard garden with espaliered fruit trees and herb garden beds. Bi-fold doors connect the courtyard to a large, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, with dishwasher, gas cooktop, electric fan-forced oven, microwave and coffee maker, as well as a table that seats eight people comfortably. Off this kitchen is a family-sized laundry with WC. Continue on to separate dining area with a table for four and a couple of comfortable armchairs, and then on to a sumptuous living room with a two-seater sofa, two more armchairs and flat-screen TV.

On the next level up, you’ll find three well-appointed bedrooms with reverse–cycle heating/cooling, two of which also have ceiling fans. All three bedrooms have queen size beds and views of either the city skyline, Sydney Harbour or Anzac Bridge. There’s also a bathroom on this floor with a bathtub.

On the third level is a large rooftop terrace with absolutely stunning views of the city, great for entertaining or a perfect view of Sydney’s world famous New Years Eve fireworks display.

The Neighborhood:
Historic Balmain is just far enough away from the main tourist hubs of Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House and the CBD to have its relaxed vibe, but close enough to get to the action in ten minutes if yo need to. With shops, markets and an abundance of eateries in close proximity, it’s the perfect location.

It’s a short walk to busses and Balmain wharf, with regular ferry services across Sydney’s famous harbour to Barangaroo and Circular Quay, both of which are close to Sydney’s CBD and train stations. If you have a car, there’s easy parking on the street outside the property.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

1/5 Terrible

Bugs and Filth in Balmain
We booked this property over the holiday season and chose this property because of the 3 bedrooms and rooftop fireworks. Giacomo was a pleasure to deal with prior to our arrival and very helpful with questions relating to New Year’s. However, upon arrival it became very clear that this property was drastically over represented and over valued for the condition it is in. The towels were stained, and the headboard in the master bedroom also had a huge stain. Disgusting! The whole house has a dank smell (my kids were gagging). The upstairs bathroom had a drainage problem and water pools up on the bathroom floor, making the bathroom difficult to use. We had to take really quick showers to avoid a swamp! There were also dozens of BUGS on the ceiling in the bathroom. When we called Giacomo extremely upset, he offered to send a cleaning lady to come inspect the property. She never showed up! Giacomo also offered to refund a portion of our money and once we checked out, he refused to do so. In short, very disappointed that Giacomo refused to keep his word regarding a discount on the very overpriced rates he was charging during the holiday week. We wound up seeing the fireworks on a boat for the 9 o’clock show which was wonderful and returning to the house to view the midnight fireworks on the rooftop, which was also wonderful. But not worth the price we paid for the conditions we endured during our week of vacation!

5/5 Excellent

Best place to enjoy Sydney
We have stayed with Giacomo and Lynn before in their other beautiful property, so we were delighted to stay in this house! The home is beautifully decorated, with all modern conveniences. We appreciated the extra adapters for our technology. We loved the peaceful location and easy access to the ferry. Great two pubs in town with exceptional food! We will be back!
