The house is very comfortable and is in an amazing location. It is a walk to Balmoral Beach and in close proximity to Mosman shops and the Taronga Park zoo. We had a large group staying there and Sharon was very accommodating. She supplied an extra bed ensuring that our whole group could stay together. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the house and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney.

We had a wonderful time to stay in Sharon's house. She was so kind, friendly and help us very much. The house has a playground and many toys and my son loved them so much. Moreover, the house is near Balmoral beach which is the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. We'll stay in her house when we come back to Australia!

Our experience with this rental was wonderful! Sharon communicated with us early and offered several amenities that were above and beyond anything I would have expected. We were travelling with our 4 month old, and Sharon offered her own personal port-a-crib and several strollers. She offered to receive and put away our groceries if we wanted to order some, offered to arrange pick up from the airport for us, and met us at the house to show us around. She also left us free passes to the zoo and when we went, met us there and got us a personal tour and up close to many of the animals. The house is located in the perfect location (we had many people tell us that it's the nicest neighborhood in Sydney), close to a stunning beach, great restaurants, and in easy reach of public transportation to get downtown. We were able to take a 5 minute walk to catch a bus then a ferry to the heart of downtown Sydney. Sharon's house was also wonderful for kids. There were 5 kids in our party, and they were totally entertained in our down time with toys, books, the trampoline, video games, etc. It was an ideal rental. We feel so lucky to have landed at Sharon's wonderful home and would heartily recommend it!

We stayed here with our 2 families (4 adults and 8 children) and our stay could not have been more perfect! First of all, the location is amazing ... A two minute walk to beautiful Balmoral Beach and the boardwalk where all the adults and kids enjoyed hours of fun. The house is also amazing for kids - backyard with trampoline, paddle/tennis field, hot tub, swings, etc ... All 8 kids (ages 2-11) simply loved it! And finally, Sharon , the owner, was the most hospitable, friendly, helpful person ever! I felt like we were friends already during our communications before our arrival, and her kindness and helpfulness made our stay just perfect! I would highly recommend this property for families and children and would certainly return!

Sharon met us at the house despite our late evening arrival. The house is so close to the beach you can hear the waves lapping against the shore from the deck of Sharon's house. Yet it is in a quiet enclave and set nicely back from the road. Our kids really enjoyed playing with the huge collection of toys and having a run around the tree shaded garden. The trampoline is huge - great for the kids to burn off energy. The short hill to the shops on Military road is very steep but we managed to get up it pushing a pram and were only slightly out of breath. Everything you need is within walking distance and there are a few great restaurants and beach diners at the near end of balmoral beach. The house is very well situated and convenient. Our kids had a wonderful time. We unfortunately had to cut our trip short which Sharon was very understanding about. A friendly and helpful host and we would recommend Sharon's house for a family beach holiday.
