“Superstar villa with the most iconic view in the world!”
Left on 04/13/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 13, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
There are lots of amazing things about this villa - great swimming pool,lots of space, beautiful interiors, but who am I trying to kid? This villa is all about that view. Quite possibly the most beautiful city harbour in the world and you've quite possibly got one of the best views of it. If you want to be really wowed (or wow someone else!) by Sydney this is the villa to do it. And compared to some other rentals it's relatively affordable.
We rented it for a get together with friends (flying in from London) we had three babies and a toddler with us and it was a good house for them. This is actually the second time I've stayed there - after researching like crazy the second time for a different option - ther was nothing to beat this place in it's price range.
Don't expect modern clean lines and hotel-grade interiors - this villa's interior is beautiful yet quite quirky, giving it a more relaxed home-like feeling with lots of character and interesting artwork. But it still has piles of fluffy towels, complimentary yummy aesop toiletries and fresh linen on the bed so it's got all the little touches of a hotel.
On the lower level is the swimming pool with a funny little room with a bar (and the fifth bedroom)but you tend to spend nearly all your time on the middle level and on that balcony watching the boats/sunset/seaplanes taking off. It''s mesmerising. The only downsides are a smallish kitchen (not much prep space) and narrow balcony - but these are minor and it's fabulous plus points by far outweight these. And did I mention that view?!
