About the property

Family Friendly Luxury Beach House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Wambirri takes its name from local indigenous Australians and means where the sun greets the ocean.

Wambirri is a charming 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with uninterrupted Sydney Harbor and Pacific Ocean views. It is located in the prestigious suburb of Mosman, and is a stone's throw to two harbor beaches - Balmoral Beach and Chinamen's Beach!

You will be mesmerized by the views, the sunrises and the sunsets! The property is landscaped in a French Provincial style and offers a free flowing open living floor plan, designer classic light filled interiors and unsurpassed views from the master bedroom, living room, sun room, outdoor entertaining areas and the cliff top pool. Your family will enjoy watching the boats sail past from one of two sun drenched outdoor living spaces or in the air conditioned comfort of the indoors. The house is fully furnished and has everything you need and more for a relaxing vacation or a home away from home.

Important things to know about our house:

• 3 oversized bedrooms, each with their own bathroom;

• Open plan living areas that capture the views;

• French Provincial style kitchen with state of the art appliances;

• Two Sunny alfresco dining areas;

• Private swimming pool with uninterrupted views;

• Air-conditioning /under floor heating/working wood fireplace.;

• Family friendly home - games, books, beach toys, DVDs included.

Balmoral Beach has beautiful white sand and is a 2 minute nature walk from the house. The house overlooks a natural rock platform where you often see dolphins playing, or large schools of fish. It is a great place to snorkel!

Head to Balmoral Beach and eat breakfast at Bathers Pavilion or the Boathouse, paddle a kayak, hire a sale boat, take a swim or just stretch out on the beach and watch the day slip away. In the evening head to either the Public Dining Room, La Republica, Awaba or back to Bathers. If you prefer a more relaxed dinner, Bottom of the Harbour is the place to go for your picnic on the beach.

Mosman is a great place to shop with many new and up and coming designers or if you prefer head into the city and explore Castlereigh Street or the Westfield on Pitt Street. Museums and Galleries are easily accessible as is Taronga Zoo.

This house is best suited for holiday makers, executive families, couples, relocated families, people in need of a second home while renovating, or families in Sydney temporarily on work assignments.

All guests, will be greeted on arrival and departure, by the property manager, who is available to answer any questions or provide you with local knowledge during your stay. Other services such as housekeeping, catering, babysitters, and grocery unpacking can be arranged.

This property is available for year round rental. This property does have a minimum stay requirement, however, please do contact us as we try to be as flexible as possible. We try to accommodate early/late check in/out for international guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wambirri.

About Odaria Finemore (UK)

We have been relocated overseas for awhile and have often stayed in fabulous homes around the globe. We understand the importance of being in a home away from home. This house is it! The house has a very relaxed beach feel and it is a great house for families as well as those on corporate business. The house has a huge WOW factor and is great for casual entertaining.

Odaria Finemore (UK) purchased this villa in 2007

Why Odaria Finemore (UK) chose North Shore Sydney

This property is located in one of the most beautiful and exclusive areas of Sydney. We just love the beach lifestyle and water sports - sailing, swimming and kayaking and still be close to the CBD. The famous Tarango Zoo is in our backyard and we love to ride the ferry into the city. Most of all we just love swimming and hanging out on the beach and exploring the rock platform below us. The restaurants in the area are very kid friendly and in easy walking distance as are all the shops. Most importantly the property comes with your own concierge - Jennifer - who can assist with travel advice, restaurants and how to experience Sydney as a local!

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful house, clean beaches, warm water, cosmopolitan beach area!! Close to the city and attractions. Mosman is a prestigious area and public transport is on your door step!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family, which included young children, stayed at Wambirri for three weeks over Easter 2014.

The house was spotless, the beds were comfortable and there was an abundance of fresh linen and clean towels. The owners had thought of everything – there were organic toiletries in the bathrooms and plenty of toys and video games to keep the little ones entertained. The kitchen had enough equipment to host a dinner party, but we rarely cooked as there were plenty of high quality eateries and take outs nearby.

The fantastic beach really was only a three minute walk away and the owners provided beach towels, buckets and spades, body boards and even sun cream! Along the promenade there were several family friendly brasseries and restaurants serving delicious food, as well as a park for the children. On the odd occasions we managed to drag ourselves away from the beach, we took a five minute drive into Mosman village which had every kind of café and restaurant imaginable.

The centre of Sydney was only twenty minutes by car but we preferred to drive to the local wharf and take the ferry, allowing us to cruise past the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.

I can honestly say that the whole family had a fabulous time – the house was amazing, the beach was breath taking, the local vicinity had something for everyone and the tourist attractions of Sydney were on our doorstep. Being British, I like to find something to moan about, but this time I can’t - we will definitely be back!

I would recommend this house to both couples and families with young children.

Breathtaking Views !

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start.....this house and location are just so beautiful. The views are absolutely breathtaking and can be seen from almost every room in the house. The location is ideal for spending time at the beach, with two beautiful beaches within 5 minutes walking distance. That's if you can tear yourself away from this gorgeous home. We spent time relaxing by the pool and eating outside on the beautiful terrace or sitting on the balcony, music playing from the surround sound system, and always looking out on the beautiful view of Sydney harbour. We saw whales out near the heads and dolphins just below us. The location so close to Balmoral beach meant there were a number of lovely restaurants within walking distance, and the fish and chips shop was fantastic for a picnic on the beach. The kids loved being able to explore the rocks and surrounding beaches and the location meant it was easy to get to Taronga Zoo, Manly Beach and the City. We have a holiday every year and this was the most relaxing holiday we have had in years.

Heaven on a stick

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk in through to the courtyard you feel the outside world drip away. It's an amazingly simple courtyard but gives such a feeling of serenity, Ahh the serenity. A walk around to the outdoor entertaining area equipped with BBQ, Pool and Harbor views and outdoor seating and you wonder what happened to Sydney.

Into the house to find a chefs kitchen and a loungeroom with a view better than any postcard. We didn't turn on the television during daylight hours just sat on the big sofas and watched the stories of the best harbor in the world unfold, when we hadn't walked the 5 min to Balmoral Beach to swim or try the many different eateries and coffee shops.

We had 2 families of three staying together for the week and I have to say it was the most relaxing week away I have spent in a long long time.

The house has so many private areas to escape form each other or to be together. The kids area is like a secret cave for them with TV's and games to keep busy little minds, well, Busy!.

The main bedroom has a stunning view of the harbor from the bed and the ante room and the dressing room attached to this area make you feel like you're someone very very special.

All of this so close to the excitement of Sydney and to be able to find a peaceful pocket at the end of the day was such a treat.

We would thoroughly recommend this house to anyone and we se so glad we got the chance to be able to experience it.

A Great Home , In a great spot , for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

A Fantastic Home ,Stay , Living in Rural Australia We looked around Australia for a week away and wanted something different to the resort - motel experience . This home has it all . relax , entertain , disappear into the well designed areas throughout the home . The views are the greatest in the world , constantly changing ,looking out through the heads to the oceans horizon . With the crystal clear water lapping, splashing the rocks below . The outside entertainment areas are outstanding with verandahs, decks and lookout areas that flow from the front to the back of the home .You can swim in the inground heated pool 20 mteres from Sydney harbours edge. The home is well planned with a full parents area completely seperated from the rest of the home . The main bedroom has a full view of the bay looking out through the heads . The parents wardrobe is a full room. The two ensuites mean you can choose a bath or shower ensuite Wow .The designer has thought of everything. Of a night time you can open the blinds and see the stars and the moon light on the seas horizon then the sun comes up through your window if you have the blinds open of course.You can swim in the pool and walk to the shower in the ensuite without walikng through the house. The ensuite has its own private deck and window with a view of the bay . The kids room is well designed hidden with a big bedroom joining the large kids bathroom . They have there own garden access where the yard meets the rooms . The main living area is unbelievable you have to "sea" it . The ocean / bay view is used to its full extent whilst maintaining the privacy to relax . The kitchen has all the equipment and design to cater and entertain 20 or 30 people comfortably , with restaurant style oven and stove and all the modern features. If you feel the need to go for a walk Balmoral beach and baths are a five minute walk , 3 minutes of the walk is beach . The Sydney city is only 20 minutes away and was easy to get to for us "bushies".The Balmoral Restaurants were the highest quality only 5 minutes away , the wife loved to shop at the many and varied retail shops only 10 minutes walk away .The photos on this site are spot on and staying in the beautiful extravegant home will never be forgotten . We made the right choice , you can stay in resorts and motels any day . I totally recommend this stay . I am sure you will want to share your experience at Balmoral views with others also .Thank you a "top job"

Outstanding & Family Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

WOW, WOW, WOW...we have stayed in many homes in Sydney, and this home is by far the best home we have ever stayed in!

We are a family with 3 children and we could not have asked for more from this home. The views are breathtaking! The house is beautifully decorated and no detail has not been considered. The children's rooms is fully stocked with games, toys and books. Every day there was something different happening on the water from dolphins playing, to sail boat races, and boats and kayaks. Most days we didn't want to leave at watched the world go by from the pool.

Jennifer was so helpful and pleasant and could not do enough to ensure that we had a wonderful stay in Sydney. She met us on arrival at the house, provided us with local information on restaurants, cafes and local attractions and was available to answer any questions on caterers and babysitters etc.

In fact we loved this house so much that we have rebooked for August and will be joining my husband when he is in Sydney for work.

WOW....and so much more than that. We had high hopes for our stay and we were blown away. The pictures do no do this property justice. The views are breathtaking, the home is absolutely incredible and Jennifer the host, is absolutely fantastic. Additional renovations had just been completed and the home just could not be any more lovely. There is absolutely nothing negative that I could possibly say.

We were in one of the most exciting places in the world and we elected to spend 90% of our time there at the house. Everything you need for preparing meals is right there. We were a group of three couples who have traveled extensively, and can truly say this is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. We highly recommend booking your vacation here at this property.

Property Manager Jennifer is priceless. She went over and above to insure we had everything we needed to make this our best vacation ever!

Can't beat this wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were taken aback upon entering this stunning home - as soon as you enter the front door, you are struck by breathtaking views of the water! Clean, updated and chic - perfect for entertaining and BBQ's. The rooms are very spacious, and there is a wonderful bedroom and entertainment area just for children! Very well situated on Balmoral, making access to Sydney proper very easy. Surrounded by gorgeous beaches and great restaurants just a walk away! I would highly recommend this home to any visitors or short term renters!
