"We stayed in "Lakeview" for 3 weeks in November. It was our first visit to Australia and we really liked it.
The house is relatively new and nicely decorated. It was clean.
The bed was comfortable. We could sleep wonderfully, since it was quiet in the neighborhood and you did not hear any street noise (even with the window open).
The location of the house is ideal. 5 minutes drive away is a shopping center with supermarkets (Aldi, Cooles). A 10-minute walk away is Warriewood Beach with a few restaurants. The bus stop of the B1 bus is 15 minutes away. The bus leaves in 50 minutes for 5 AUD directly to Sydney. From there are 10 minutes walk to the port.
A car is required if you want to spend longer time in the house. We have made many beautiful tours to the surrounding national parks, including the "Blue Montains". You should definitely go there (but it takes about 2.5 hours each way, because you often get stuck in a traffic jam).
If you want to see small kangaroos and cockatoos in the wild, you should take the ferry from Palm Beach to Basin in the National Park.
The beaches north and south of Sydney are all beautiful, but the waves are usually very high. The water temperature was 20 degrees.
The landlords Debbie and Ross are very friendly and helpful.
It was a completely successful holiday for us!'
We had a wonderful stay in November. The studio was well appointed and clean. We were greeted by the owners; who live in the house on the front part of the property; with a warm welcome and a fruit basket. The owners provided us with information on how to navigate Sydney and provided the transportation pass cards with a few dollars loaded. They checked in with us frequently and provided site seeing tips. The studio is located within walking distance to many restaurants in Balmain and to the bus stop that takes you into the heart Sydney. The ferry to Circular key is also within walking distance but does not run as frequently as the buses do. If I ever make it back to Sydney I will definitely try to book this studio again.
