The view on waking up each morning was just fantastic. I was working just up the road and the location was fantastic with a short walk to Kirribilli for all my shopping and dining needs.

1) Lovely apartment - pros: clean and comfortable with wifi. Cons: 1 dining room chair was broken and the freezer badly needed defrosting so it was not usable 2) great location - pros: within walking distance of Opera House, art gallery, botanic gardens and grocery/liquor store and restaurants. Great view of the city and can see the harbour from the balcony. In a nice and safe part of town. Cons: none 3) Host/staff - they were very accommodating and we were able to check in early after a long flight from Canada. Thanks. Would return and rent this apartment if ever back in Sydney. Highly recommended.

Unbeatable location but occasionally noisy around the weekend. Louvre side windows in one bedroom

Unbeatable location but occasionally noisy around the weekend. Louvre side windows in one bedroom didn't shut out external noise.
