My family of 4 was very comfortable here and the space was very clean and inviting. We loved watching the wild parrots from the balcony! We also loved the Milson's Point neighborhood. We found great restaurants in walking distance and there is a little convenience store right on the corner. The train station is a 3 minute walk and that made it super easy for us to get to all the places that we wanted to visit in Sydney. Our only complaint is with the check in/check out process. We came in after 6 and were asked to pick up our keys at a "Key Hub" location that was not near the unit. This was a little inconvenient because we decided to take a taxi from the airport. Once we got to the location to get the key, there was a problem and we could not retrieve the key. Meanwhile, we racked up a big taxi bill trying to decide what to do. We finally decided to have the taxi take us to the unit and wait there. We were locked out until the key was delivered to us. We were told that we could leave the keys on the counter at check out, but then we were asked to take them to the key hub location again. Thankfully, we were able to just leave them in the unit instead. All that being said, we would stay here again. Even though we did have this confusing issue, everyone that we talked to on the phone was super friendly and helpful! I wish I could give an overall rating of 5 stars because we did have such a great experience. My only advice is to make the check-in/check-out process a bit easier for guests. Maybe a "Key Hub" location that is closer to the unit?

This is a beautiful, clean, spacious 2 bedroom unit with an amazing view. The owner, Jenny also couldn't be more helpful so it made our 3 day stay very enjoyable. Also, not too far away from a great coffee shop/restaurant "Mr Spofforth" and other conveniences. The only problem is parking - particularly if you are not lucky enough to find a parking space close to the unit and you have lots of luggage to carry down a couple of levels. This is probably an expected thing in the city but from someone hailing from North Qld, it seems like a hassle. On the upside, there is no traffic noise as there is only a walking path between you and the water.
