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

So, overall my stay here was lovely. The loft is fantastic and very spacious and very open (agree with other reviews that this is best for a couple or travelers who are comfy with no privacy). The location cannot be beat and the pictures don't quite do the space justice when it comes to how extensively large it is. However, I would be remiss to not warn other travelers to be sure and note that this unit has NO central air conditioning and you should be very aware of that when making your booking choice, especially during summer months. I lucked out with my travel that Sydney experienced a cool front right after my arrival and throughout my stay (I was there during the summer), but if the cool front had not come through I'm not sure I would have been able to stay here as I would have not been able to sleep. I was not misled as it does not advertise having air conditioning, but I think I mistakenly assumed that it would, which was almost very problematic. What this means is that you absolutely must have the windows open in order to be comfortable and the air temperature must be acceptable for you. Light sleepers might not like this either as there was some road construction going on during my stay and when they started working, needless to say I could hear it. Again, these things didn't bother me, but travelers should go in with their eyes wide open in my opinion. Also, the building has no lift and this unit is on the 4th floor so travelers should be aware of that as well. These all turned out NOT to be issues for me and my stay was lovely, but they should definitely be taken into account when making your booking choice. If these are not concerns for you, then I can highly highly recommend this place for a great stay in Sydney. It's unique, charming, great location, and good value for what you get. A truly great vacation rental experience.
