************* Christmas and New Year ************* I would like to invite you to experience Christmas in Sydney - enjoy the beautiful sunny harbor at its best, and the cozy village feel of Balmain! Have you seen Sydney New Year's Eve fireworks in action? Two blocks down the road from the apartment is one of the best and sought-after vintage points in Sydney to view the fireworks. From Ballast Point and Mort Bay Park, you can see fireworks exploding from Sydney Harbor Bridge, top of the buildings across the City, and from ALL SIX barges in the middle of the Sydney Harbor - basically every firework for Sydney New Year's Eve. Come and be our guest for this amazing experience! As we will be away, we are hoping to host only one guest reservation from 24th Dec to 3rd Jan minimal with no change ...************* Christmas and New Year ************* I would like to invite you to experience Christmas in Sydney - enjoy the beautiful sunny harbor at its best, and the cozy village feel of Balmain!

Thank you in advance, and we look forward to welcoming you to our place. *************************************************************************************** The Space Why stay at a place devoid of character and history? Or be insulated in a tower with no sense of place, far removed from the essence of Sydney and its legendary harbor? A place to call home. The apartment is located in a quintessential Sydney peninsula, right on the harbor and next to the City. Significant majority of the houses in the neighborhood are heritage protected, retaining the original structure and history of the area and that of Sydney. The streets ooze distinctive character of yesterday, today and tomorrow, while the café and restaurant scene pulses vibrant energy that is distinctively Sydney. The apartment is brilliantly located with one block to the famed Darling St. (where all the cafés, restaurants, and shops are located) and one block down to the waterfront Sydney Harbor. There are frequent buses and ferries to the City and various other locations in greater Sydney area. “Mi casa es su casa.” The newly renovated apartment is bright and airy, with sunshine spilling into living room and bedrooms. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area has a nice flow and affords easy living with extra comfort. Rooms: The apartment boasts two generous sized bedrooms with two queen size beds (can sleep two people on each bed). The rooms feature large windows overlooking native eucalyptus and banksia trees, and houses in Balmain/Birchgrove area. Bed Sheets: From my travels I have learnt to appreciate quality and comfort – a good night of sleep is priceless. Therefore in my place all bed sheets provided are designer and 5-star hotel high quality sheets – Donna Karan, Errebicasa, Garnier-Thiebaut, Sheridan, etc. I would like you to have good rest while you are here. Kitchen: The open kitchen was designed by a top agency to allow for modern convenience and free flow of space. The selected benchtop is of a rare marble mined in northern Australia, the uniqueness and rarity of the stone adds character to the apartment. The result transformation speaks for itself, the kitchen is aesthetically pleasing and it also became the heart of the place. The kitchen is also fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, cutleries, plates, bowels, etc. ensuring your stay is nothing but comfortable and convenient. Balcony: The balcony has view of Balmain/Birchgrove and North Sydney, with frequent visits from rainbow lorikeets, cockatoos, and various other native birds. The table set allows for outdoor dining or even a cup of tea! Bathroom: The bathroom is newly renovated to be crisp and clean with separate shower and bathtub (no need to climb into the bathtub to take a shower!). I will also provide towels for all the guests. WIFI, TV, Blue ray DVD player: 42' LG TV and Blueray DVD player are provided. Wi-Fi is also included to make sure you are connected to the world at large. Note: The apartment is in a boutique apartment block with only 12 units/households. It is located on the third level reachable via staircases. My friends dub it “the stairway to heaven”! Guest Access: The whole apartment and everything within the place. Checkin / Checkout: Checkin - 3pm Checkout - 11am ....Still not sure about the apartment? We have hosted hundreds of visitor from this booking site (Superhost, 90+ reviews all 5 stars). Why not read what others have to say about the apartment? Please see the reviews for this property.More

The apartment in Church St Balmain was perfect for a short stay. Close to shops, ferry and parks. Clean and tidy with plenty of crockery and appliances. Stairs probably difficult for an elderly person. All in all, very suitable for us.

About the neighbourhood
Balmain was one of the earliest Sydney suburbs to be settled by Europeans, becoming an industrial hub and a major Sydney port, with shipbuilding, engineering, and coal mining taking off in the late 1800s. A combination of its working class roots, an influx of immigrants in the 1950s and gentrification of the 1960s -- “Once a tough, working-class neighborhood, Balmain now rivals Paddington [and Surrey Hill] in Victorian-era desirability – with the added advantage of being surrounded by water and city-bound ferries.” (Lonely Plant 2018). Some of Australia's best-known writers, actors, film directors, musicians, and artists call Balmain home.
Getting around
During your stay, you will have easy access to the City and Sydney harbor. They are right on your doorstep! Frequent city-bound buses are one block up the road and 10 minutes ride to the city center (QVB). The ferry wharf is at the park down the road from the apartment, and it provides an easy ferry ride into the City, Darling Harbor, Milsons Point/Luna Park, Circular Quay/the Rocks, Pyrmont, and Cockatoo Island. I can also provide parking permits for street parking if you have a car.
