North Sydney, on Sydney’s lower North Shore, starts at north end of the Harbour Bridge and is around 3km from the CBD and also closely located on route to Sydney's famous Manly beach and other North shore village suburbs including Neutral Bay, Crows Nest, McMahons Point, Kirribilli Chatswood and Mosman (Balmoral Beach & Taronga Zoo).
North Sydney is the second largest business centre to Sydney's CBD and located only a 5 minute drive directly over the Harbour Bridge, making is an excellent alternative to the hustle and bustle of the CBD - whilst still being centrally located. The area is dominated by the IT and advertising industries and café scene during the week and benefits from the quieter peaceful surroundings at the weekend as the corporates go home to the suburbs.
North Sydney is a prosperous area with spectacular waterfront real estate and is location of official residences of the Australian Prime Minister and Governor-General at Kirribilli Point. The area is easily accessible by public transport from the North Sydney station, which is on City Rail’s North Shore Line.
Be sure to bring you camera while staying, as the area boasts beautiful harbour side bushland and stunning views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
So whether you are heading to Sydney for business or leisure, my North Sydney apartment will make the perfect base.
Comments from one of my guests regarding the area:
"We absolutely love North Sydney. The apartment is 1/2 block from the bus stop and three blocks from the train station. It is a short walk to the glorious Sydney Harbour and an easy walk over the bridge! There are so many places to eat and drink along the way, wherever you are going in North Sydney. If you didn't know, the public transportation system is without peer in our opinion. Every morning we walked to our favorite cafe for coffee. There are three grocery stores nearby and the underground shopping in Greenwood Plaza is wonderful. There is a fantastic library and community park within one block. The markets there and nearby are wonderful...Marian Kennedy - March 2014"

We would like to thank Maria for a really special stay. She went out of her way to make everything as comfortable as possible. The apartment was fantastic and the location was really convenient for accessing transport links, with great eateries nearby. We couldn't recommend Maria and her accommodation highly enough.
Location was rlly convenient & Maria left us a guide which was rlly useful as well. Great experience overall
The apartment is tidy and clean which is reached to the hotel standard. The environment was quiet and bright so we had a very relaxing moment in Sydney. My family had a wonderful stay in Maria's place.
Maria was an excellent host and provided everything and beyond of what we expected. This is a great location and very secure. The pool and facilities were superb. We highly recommend this listing for any individual looking for a place to stay when in the Sydney area!
Maria was very friendly. I got lost and she still stayed up to show me around the appartment. The room was just as described, beautiful and roomy. I would highly recommend staying here. She made my visit to Sydney an amazing one.
Maria was very welcoming and showed us around the apartment and block so that we were familiar with everything when we arrived. Her apartment was very homely for us and very comfortable and exceptionally clean. She kindly left milk, TimTams, water as well as plenty of tea/coffee, sugar, toilet rolls and even some Ferrero Rocher! The location was ideal for shops and places for lunch during the week however the weekend was quite so we wandered up the hill to Crows Nest which has plenty to offer in the evenings. Maria was really accommodating and it was a real pleasure to meet her.

About the Host, Maria
My name is Maria and I live in Sydney, Australia and work in Finance as an Operations Manager. I enjoy what I do as it challenges me and keeps me on my toes.
On the weekends I enjoy getting out and about and just enjoying the outdoors. I walk alot, swim and sail during the warmer months. When I have time I also like to do charity work as it keeps me grounded. Some of my passions are travelling and meeting new people. I'm a positive person which sees the glass as half full.
My favourite city in the world would have to be NYC and I thoroughly enjoy going back every year, to experience the culture, museums, nightlife, restaurants, shopping and just exploring the great city.
As a house guest I'm pretty quiet, clean, respectful and most probably won't be around much as there is also so much to do and see when someone is travelling.
As a host I have very high service standards and take a lot of care with the upkeep and cleanliness of the apartment that I provide to guests.
Happy travels everybody!!!
