We had a wonderful time during our first trip to Sydney, much influenced by Carla & Ian's apartment in Careening Cove.
The property is just as described (sadly not always the case). A very pretty outlook over to Kirribilli, stunning in the early morning sun, and so close to the ferry stop that we could almost wait until we saw the boat coming round the corner before setting off and then it took not much more than 15 mins to Circular Quay.
Kirribilli village itself is only a pleasant 12 minute walk though a little park and we found all we needed in terms of food and drink there.
All in all, we were very pleased indeed with our choice and enjoyed our contacts with Carla the owner.
We have no hesitation at all in recommending this property, which we have already done to friends, and would love to come back ourselves.
This was probably the highlight of a 6 week trip to New Zealand and Australia.
