Photos and Description of this Sydney CBD holiday apartment
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This Australia Vacation Apartment is truly unique, large, luxurious, totally self contained and only minutes from shopping malls, National Parks and a direct rail service to the city.

If you are vacationing/holidaying or on Corporate Business and if your stay is for 5 days or 3 months it has been designed for the couple who would like to experience Sydney with accommodation that is located in a peaceful bushland environment. A real oasis in the heart of Sydney and what's more

Designed for 2 people only NO SHARING with other guests.

Just 30 min from the city on Sydneys' scenic and affluent North Shore this apartment is available for vacations/holidays or corporate bookings. It allows you the opportunity to escape the typical large city atmosphere, relax and yet still explore this wonderful Harbour City.

This is an opportunity to experience the real Sydney lifestyle, a real haven away from the city noise,traffic and stress. Although if you require the night clubs and party atmosphere of a large city - this apartment would not be suitable. If you wish you can Experience Sydney with a local, understand its culture, explore its hidden locations unknown to most tourists and be part of the Aussie way of life. This type of vacation package is not available with hotels and most accommodation packages.

The apartment has a full gourmet kitchen with the latest appliances and highest quality furniture. Set amongst the tree tops it affords seclusion, privacy and bushland views. There are bushwalks from your front door and the opportunity if you wish to share breakfast on the outside deck with an array of native parrots that visit each morning.

Location: Just 12 miles from the city in a quiet bushland upmarket neighborhood. There are various ways to travel to the city, by car 30/35 min. A relaxing scenic journey by train and ferry if you are not in a hurry or by train alone.

There is a rail station with a direct service to the city within a 5 min walk of the apartment. It is safe, frequent and very reliable.

Also within minutes is a large shopping mall, a wildlife sanctuary where you can see and touch Koalas and Kangaroos and access to the KuringGai Chase National Park which is Sydney's premier park. With natural bushwalks, hidden waterways, aboriginal rock carvings and a cultural centre, its an ideal opportunity to view Sydney in a manner that has changed little in the past 200 years.\

***HOME AWAY SPECIAL OFFER*** A personal meet and greet, airport transfers either way and a 2 to 3 hour introductory tour of Sydney` major attractions. Tariff $300 US p/couple.

IF ITS YOUR INTENTION TO ALSO EXPLORE CAIRNS & THE GREAT BARRIER REEF WE ARE VERY FAMILAR WITH THIS LOCATION AND CAN OFFER A LOT OF LOCAL ADVICE

Personal Tours: An added advantage of staying at our Sydney Holiday Apartment is the availability of personal tours. Your hosts have a SUV (4WD) and Boat and if required tours are available on a daily basis to Sydney's premier locations and to other locations that are unknown and rarely visited even by Sydney residents.

Sydney has 100s of miles of waterways many of which are totally inaccessible without the use of a boat. One of which is the Hawkesbury River almost 100 miles of waterway that almost circles Sydney. Here you can explore hidden secluded beaches, bays and inlets at the mouth of this river together with its great bird and wildlife and the rugged unchanged landscape which forms part of the National Park.

*** Recently 2 guests Donna and Mike from Bend Oregon, USA undertook the abovementioned boat tour and we have included a few pictures that they took on that day. A full compilation of their day can be found on our 'Sydney Holiday Tours' web site.

We have lived in this Sydney North Shore location since 1975 and added the vacation apartment nearby in 2006. It really is a wonderful central location near enough to the city

(just 12 miles) and far enough away to enjoy the bushland with its array of native birds and animals.

Our guests most frequent comment is 'How great it was to experience the real Sydney'

Wow what a location

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 09/01/2010
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2009
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Australia. After our cruise we stayed 5 nights in this apartment in Sydney. It is exactly as pictured and the owners are extremely helpful and hospitable.

Its as pictured, complete with the birds at breakfast and the possum at night. All furnishings are of high quality and are either new or refurbished antiques.. I especially enjoyed having a washer in the apartment, as I cannot tolerate dirty laundry. The owners have pretty much thought of everything and all you will need is food.

The owners do tours of Sydney and even have a boat, however because of the short stay we did our own thing by taking the train each day into the city which is an easy walk from the apartment.. The apartment is in Normanhurst an upper-class suburb in Sydneys north with lots of vegation and flowers and the ride into the city is a little over 30min. You arrive at one othe Central stations with connections everywhere. We bought tickets for unlimited use of the trains, ferries and buses which were very reasinable.

All in all, our stay in the apartment was one of the high points of our trip, as we were able to meet real Australians and actually live in the real Australia.

As far as money is concerned, we paid a deposit by credit card and the remainder, also by credit card when we left the apartment.

Owner's Response: As owners, it is of paramount importance for us to present the property to the highest degree of comfort and cleanliness, ensuring our guests enjoy their stay.

It would appear that the majority of our past guests have enjoyed being able to blend into the the Australian way of life, to mix with locals, make friends with the native animals and birds and to understand and explore the real Sydney.

A Wonderful Experience and warm, friendly host owners !

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 01/02/2014
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
We arrived in Sydney by cruise ship and stayed in town for 3 days. We pre-booked the cottage/"tree house" for 5 days. Wish that we could have booked for a couple of weeks !
The owner, Ron, picked us up at our hotel. He gave us a tour of Sydney, proceeded to pick up some groceries and drove to the apartment. What a pleasant surprise ! We drove down a rural street, descended down a driveway into the edge of the forest !
The apartment is really a cottage with a nice deck outside the kitchen. The interior was warm and inviting, clean, and well appointed. Ron's wife Jan has done a great job making it a home away from home. The adventure started the next day. Ron and Jan had left a container with some cereal type food in it with instructions on how to prepare it for the "Lorikeets", which are small, very colorful, parrot like birds. I prepared some food as directed and placed it in a dish. Out on the deck was a tree that that had a holder for the dish attached to it. Within in a minute 2 birds arrived, perched themselves on the edge of the dish and started eating. During our stay, I took a picture of my wife Sue with 5 birds perched on her outstretched arm as she fed them from a spoon !
The best part of the whole experience were the day trips. We hired Ron as our guide and every day he picked us up at 10 A.M. and with Jan, took us to places that tourists normally wouldn't see. We enjoyed their company as much as the places we were taken.
What wonderful hosts ! We were taken to a private local zoo where we got to pet a Koala Bear and feed Kangaroos and watched a demonstration on Sheep Shearing and how to throw a boomerang ! The area around the cottage was spectacular. Ron and Jan made the whole experience very special and a great use of our time.
Traveling to Sydney by train was not necessary for us during our stay since we were returning to Sydney to stay in town for 7 days before our return to the United States.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, In relation to the day trips it really is an opportunity to view and explore locations in and around Sydney that are inaccessible to travelers and in some case unknown by even Sydney residents.

A Perfect Sydney Experience

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 29/01/2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
We rented the apartment to celebrate Xmas and New Years at the tail end of a 3 month trip in Australia. The apartment was furnished to an extremely high standard, with plenty of storage space, homely trinkets, they even put a small Christmas tree up for us. It was extremely clean and had every comfort we needed, high spec fridge /cooker, a lovely bright bedroom, good shower and comfortable furniture. We relaxed and felt at home instantly. There were plenty of towels and Jan was really efficient with housekeeping. There was even a BBQ on the balcony with citronella candles and insect sprays.

The location, Normanhurst was a 45min journey to Central Sydney. The trains were punctual and regular and on New Years Eve all worked out well, although sometimes it was a bit of a drag after a long day's sightseeing. The village was peaceful, the stars were dazzling at night and the morning birdsong was refreshing. The town of Hornsby was 1 stop away on the train and had a Westfield, cinema and restaurants if you wanted a local experience.

Feeding the Lorikeets who gathered on our balcony every morning became a daily highlight, as was the peacock who we watched strutting around the pool area. The place was so relaxing. Ron and Jan lived next door, we enjoyed chatting with them at the pool and also enjoyed our privacy. They did everything to make us feel welcome and looked after, taking the time to offer advice and printing out train times / maps if needed. They also seemed genuinely keen to ensure that we experienced the best of Sydney.

The pool was so fabulous and sunbathing / kitchen / bbq area gave us the perfect space to enjoy it. We spent boxing day lounging by the poolside with some drinks whilst a roast dinner was cooking in the oven and felt totally spoiled. Of course, xmas and NYE in Sydney was the best we'd ever experienced and our stay at this place enhanced it even more. Ron and Jan are a great couple who put their personalities and homely values into this holiday let that it we found it hard to say goodbye.

Excellent Accommodations - Wonderful Hosts

  • Review Submitted: 06/01/2014
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
Australia/New Zealand was one of my bucket list vacations. To start it off, my husband and I decided to stay in Sydney for a week before starting on a NZ cruise. After reading the reviews on Ron & Jan's tree house vacation rental, we decided to stay there for our Sydney week. We were not disappointed. It was a great start to one of our best vacations ever. Pictures and write ups were right on. My husband and I agree with all the posted positive reviews.
As my husband had injured his back before we left, we were not as mobile as we originally planned. Ron and Jan were so kind and helpful in accommodating his limited mobility. We so appreciated the pick up (which included the stop at the local supermarket) and drop off service.
We also took advantage of the fact that they provide tours and thoroughly enjoyed the day we booked with them. Both Jan and Ron are very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed getting the background and history of Australia. It was so fun getting a feel for life in Sydney, Australia.
We know that we will look to book the tree house apartment if we ever get to return.

Better than a home away from home!

Incredibly well equipped, well maintained and well presented apartment with wonderful bush views from the balcony and lots of birdlife. The hosts go that extra mile for a truly wonderful stay. The train station is an easy walk and the 40 minute train trip to the centre of Sydney runs regularly. In the other direction the Kuring Gai national park and Hawksebury River are lovely places for day trips only 3-5 train stops away. However this property is so lovely it's nice just to stay and relax 'at home' too.
