North Sydney is surrounded by Lavender Bay, Kirribilli, Crows Nest, Milsons Point and Neutral Bay. It is known for having one of the largest CBDs in the country, which serves the entire Sydney region. The North Sydney CBD contains numerous landmarks, including the Stanton Library and the Independent Museum.
Although North Sydney today continues to be largely commercial, it is also home to Luna Park, a family friendly amusement park, on Lavender Bay. Balmoral and several areas along the coastline feature quiet beaches and picnicking. Historic features include Kirribilli House and the homes of the Prime Minister and Governor-General, all of which are located east of the Harbour Bridge. The Museum at Mary MacKillop Place, the Stanton Library and Walker Street Cinema are all popular stops for tourists.
The area is very quiet and the streets are tree lined.

We, a German couple 55+, had booked Maria's place for three months. Centrally located in North Sydney with the busstop to Balmoral Beach and Wynyard (CBD) (both a 20 min. ride) around the corner, train station down the road, a variety of smaller and bigger stores within walking distance, the communtiy center and Stanton Library virtually across the road the location suited our purposes in every regard.
Compared to the shoebox-size of apartments in recent high-rise buildings Maria's place provides space and plenty of light. It is functional and well shaped, each corner serving a different purpose. The big dinner table gave room for our written work and allowed us to invite our friends on many an occasion, whereas you can have your tea and snacks in the spacious living-room area. Since the place has an eastern aspect we had the morning sun, but it never became too hot and temperatures remained agreeable throughout our three-months' stay.
When we arrived we were positively surprised to find virtually everything you need for a start at a new place, Maria had provided for everyday household goods in abundance. She was there for us when we needed assistance in terms of technical questions, always helpful in a very charming way and quick in reply. Since on the other hand she was completely unobtrusive she is in our view a fine and highly competent hostess in every which way, whe couldn't have found a better one.
Thank you, Maria, for the good time we were having at your place, which we can truly recommend for future guests who need accomodation for more than just a week.
Maria was an absolutely delightful host and her apartment is a case study in cleanliness, efficiency and good taste. It was perfectly sized and placed for our short stay in North Sydney and we can thoroughly recommend it to any one.
Grazie Maria and all the best for 2014.
Michael, Lucia and Amy.
I spent 15 days in Sydney. Maria was a great host. On my first day she showed me a little bit around in the area and some goodies were in the apartment too. It was the perfect apartment for perfect holidays.
Excellent location in North Sydney, walking distance to the station which is only 2 stops from the CBD. The apartment is in a very safe, and beautiful part of Sydney.
The apartment is excellent. It is modern and very well furnished. The beds are very comfortable and the neighbourhood is very peaceful at night.
Thanks to Maria for being a very kind and welcoming host, and also for the wine :)
I would definitely recommend this place to a couple or even a group of 4.
we totally enjoyed our week in Maria's apartment --nicely situated,quiet,comfortable well furnished and stocked
We had a fantastic stay at Maria's apartment! We went to Sydney for 3 nights over the Melbourne Cup weekend and our accommodation was perfect.
From the moment we made contact with Maria, she was always responsive and informative. When we arrived in Sydney, Maria had even bought some supplies for breakfast which was so welcoming.
The apartment is large and spacious for a one bedroom apartment and the neighbours were very quiet. We actually stayed with our kids so there were 4 of us (the kids slept on an inflatable in the lounge room which worked really well.
The apartment is very centrally located and we found it a great base to visit the city, Circular Quay, Luna Park, Balmoral and Manly.
Thanks Maria, we would love to stay with you again when we next come to Sydney.
Excellent, modern and clean apartment! The luxuries of a hotel with the comforts of a home. Thanks Maria!
Maria and her apartment were both wonderful. Maria replied to every communication straight away and provided great information. She was also very flexible and happy to work around our arrival and departure times.
The flat is wonderful, fitted out to a very high standard with everything you'd need. It's about a ten minute walk to North Sydney station and from there the whole city is yours. The neighbourhood is quiet and full of beautiful trees. There's also an Aldi supermarket just down the street so great if you are on a budget.
And the pool is lovely, from what I could see, no one else used it the whole time we were there.
If i'm ever back in Sydney I would not bother looking anywhere else; great place, great host.
Maria could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Our needs were quite specific and nothing was too much for her.
Great location, great apartment and an extremely helpful and diligent host. Highly recommended.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
