About this listing

Opposite the majestic tree-lined grounds of Swifts in exclusive harbourside Darling Point, the home offers much more space than may at first meet the eye. Imaginatively redesigned for effortless entertaining indoors, outdoors and poolside, the generous living and dining areas flow to extensive northerly terracing and a heated pool.

Chrissie was in touch right from the time of our booking, letting us know about the property, and arranging to meet us on our arrival. A great host who was on hand if required, but otherwise left us to enjoy the property and the surrounding area. The property has a wonderful party/communal space in the kitchen and dining area, which floods with light, and is wonderful outside in the evening for candlelit chats around the table. All bedrooms are large and the four bathrooms for 5 people was perfect. Clean and tidy throughout, loads of towels, and we didn't want for anything. Beautiful, quiet neighbourhood that is close enough to the city but feels like an exclusive community in the country. Thanks, Chrissie!
The house is as beautiful as the pictures make it look and Chrissie was incredibly attentive whenever we had any questions. We all had a wonderful week.
We had the most wonderful time in Sydney and a lot was due to staying in such a beautiful house in a stunning location. Chrissie was extremely helpful from the moment I enquired about the property and continued to be so in preparing the house for our arrival and throughout our stay.
The house is extremely spacious and worked brilliantly with our 18 month old twins. It has literally everything you could need and if you like to entertain the outside area and kitchen is just perfect.
I could not recommend the house enough - the weather wasn't great - but it didn't seem so bad when we had such a lovely home to be in.
