TRAVELLING TO SYDNEY?
Then WELCOME!! Whether you are young or young at heart and visiting relations or friends or here for a holiday to see the sights, you will find this studio apartment perfect.
HOW TO FIND YOUR WAY:
From the airport take the “Airport Express” train to Circular Quay then an 'Inner Harbour' ferry to Greenwich Point and you are here. Easy! Just walk up the ramp.
Walk half a minute to take the Inner-Harbour ferry service across amazing Sydney Harbour travelling under the Harbour Bridge to Circular Quay where you can connect with trains or buses to your destination. At 'the Quay' there are museums and the Opera House, the Sydney Rocks area, Restaurants and Cafes, or walk to the Shopping areas. You can take a ferry to Manly, Watson's Bay, Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour or a bus to Bondi Beach.

Additional Location Information
Quiet, leafy, close to city, beautiful Greenwich is a sought-after part of the lower north shore of Sydney, the choice for many professionals and their families to live. Whether your Sydney visit is just for a few short days or a month long sojourn, it is such an ideal spot to spend time and yet quick to reach any function you have in mind. A bush walk to the village cafes or a swim in the nearby harbour pool is a lovely way to start the day. Even if the Sydney Opera House is the chosen site for an evening's entertainment, the ferry ride home at night across the most beautiful harbour in the world is something not to be missed.

Close to Sydney centre, yet away from the bustle, a real gem.

Having accompanied my husband on a business trip to Sydney early this year, we were lucky enough to find this gem, an oasis in a big city with the singing birds to hear and the sailing boats to watch. An added bonus was the nearby golf course. The ferry wharf was at the door so my husband had no problem with traffic when he had appointments in the CBD. I found that we could connect at Circular Quay with ferries for Watsons Bay, The Zoo and Manly. We found the large studio apartment extremely comfortable and the manager was very obliging. If we should visit Sydney again, this would be my first choice. Read more
Glad you are happy with your stay and hope to see you again.

Stayed Oct 13. Neat, clean, lovely views. Good location beside easy ride on ferry to all things. Surrounded by parkland. I'd be happy there for a one month stay next time.

My sister Margaret and I have stayed here twice as the rates are reasonable and it is so comfortable with frequent ferry transport right at the door. The ferry is such a stress free way to get to the city, and as pensioners we were able to travel all over Sydney by train, bus and ferry for $2 per day.
The air-conditioned en-suite studio is on the first floor but the fabulous views over the harbor and the lack of traffic noise more than compensate. The studio is spacious with a really comfortable queen sized bed and a separate day bed. I loved the large walk-in wardrobe with plenty of hanging space an ironing facilities. The kitchenette has everything you need to prepare light meals and a laundry downstairs makes this a real home away from home experience.
This is my first choice accommodation in Sydney as nothing else I have stayed in compares as favorably as this unique little hideaway. Read more
