Balgowlah accommodation

Balgowlah is a Sydney suburb situated 12 kilometres north-east of the city centre in the Northern Beaches region within the Manly municipal area. Being right by the Manly surf beach offers visitors the added attraction of coastal living when you are looking for Sydney accommodation for your next holiday, or visit to the NSW capital.

Shopping Is Easy At Balgowlah

Shopping at Balgowlah is easy as it has two large shopping complexes within reach; the Stockland Village shopping centre known locally as the 'Totem' and the Warringah Mall. There are also many smaller shopping areas some of them reminiscent of the old 'corner shop' days of the 1960s. You'll also find boutique shops, a bakery, restaurants, a liquor store, hair dressers and many other handy retailers close to Balgowlah Holiday rentals.

The Heart Of Manly Walk Offers A Lot Of Interest

There is a heritage walk near your Balgowlah accommodation known as the Heart of Manly, this walk includes the following highlights:

Starting in a clockwise direction from Manly Wharf around 'The Corso,' the commercial centre of Manly itself, and it goes all the way from the Manly Wharf to Manly Beach. Much of the Corso is a mall with a myriad of outdoor eating facilities provided by cafe's and restaurants. The commercial area spreads itself out and into the surrounding streets all the way to the shores of Sydney Harbour and the ocean beach.

The Ivanhoe Park sector takes you past two homes where poet Henry Lawson and wife Bertha lived in 1902. One home, entitled Marlow and the other, Ladywood, are both in Whistler Street. Henry Lawson wrote several poems about the area three of the most prominent being; 'The Bards Who Lived at Manly,' depicting his life in the area, 'The Stranded Ship,' a poem about a ship that ran aground at nearby North Steyne and 'The Cliffs.'

The walk includes a conducted tour of the area known simply to locals as, 'the flat.' This is a flat strip of land separating the harbour from the ocean. The beach here is the South Steyne beach, one of four beautiful beaches fringed with Norfolk Pine trees.

A further important and interesting part of the heritage walk is when it takes you to the broken column memorial. This is a fine example of Victorian architecture, created in 1908 in remembrance of people's lives being cut short as a result of war. In this case soldiers fighting in South Africa in 1900.

Fun At Oceanworld

There's lots of fun within walking distance from Balgowlah holiday rentals particularly at Oceanworld. Guided tours take you through this opportunity of a lifetime. It's a place where you can actually take a dive into a pool among sharks, but if you're a little too timid for that you can wet your hands in the touch pool or the kids can go on a snorkel safari.

Homely Home Rentals

Balgowlah accommodation offers you the best of all worlds, it's close to the exciting city of Sydney but far enough out to experience what the area once was and who lived there. You'll find Balgowlah home rentals are an ideal way of experiencing all this as you and your family enjoy the homely atmosphere

It has million dollar views out of each window looking directly onto the harbor bridge, opera house and downtown skyline. Beautifully furnished with modern appliances and furniture, it really did feel like home. Where else are you going to find a washer and dryer in unit at this price point? The location is amazing as well. There is a full service grocery store within a five minute walk, tons of restaurants, bars and shops within a few blocks and the Kings Cross metro station is 4 blocks away. This property is not exactly spacious, but for a couple looking to visit Sydney and explore all the city has to offer, it is perfect! Matt and Kieren, the concierge were amazing. Kieren went over all the property had to offer in great detail upon our arrival and helped us pick out restaurants and things to do. You are seriously not going to find a better value at this price point. The view alone is worth the price, everything else is a welcome bonus.

Walk to Darling Harbour and nice restaurants in the neighborhood just around the corner. Late check in was easy. We did enjoy the property and because of location I would recommend it. We have stayed in many places around the world through similar services so I always think that I should give honest feedback especially when an easy fix could make the place a bit better. These are not reasons not to stay here - just a few thoughts. Main bath could use new taps. Very hard to turn on and off with wet hands due to design. Need more chairs for the dining table (only 2 provided) and needs a couple of tables in the lounge. Nowhere to put a drink when sitting in the lounge. We used a bench as a table that I think was meant to serve as extra seating for the dining table but had to move it between the two spaces each time. Face cloths would be nice. The second bedroom night table lamp doesn't work on one side - just a bulb I think. I would reorient the bed in that room as the noise from the street is loud and it's a bit drafty with the head of the bed being directly up against the large window. Only one set of keys was available. We were two couples wanting to do some separate activities and having only one set of keys was inconvenient. We would stay again if some of these were remedied but also really good value for location. Questions we had were answered quickly thoughout out stay by host.
