The Lane Cove/Northwood area is unique in that it is so close to the Sydney CBD yet has a quiet, leafy holiday feel about it. The people are friendly, and there is lots to do - village style shopping, sailing, golf, tennis, bushwalking and lots of restaurants.
Northwood has a private ferry service to the Sydney CBD every weekday morning and evening. There are also regular busses to the city and Lane Cove and the train station is only 5 minutes away.
Other Things to Note
Sydney fireworks views - just a short 5 minute stroll to a great position with views and less crowds than in the city!
You can be as independent as you like, but we're happy to help and chat about anything that's going on in Sydney.
Perfect! Michele made me welcome from the time I arrived, and was good company without being intrusive. The suite was comfortable, private and peaceful, with beautiful views of Sydney's inner harbour. All amenities were exactly as indicated. As a former Sydneysider back for a visit, this was an ideal way to get reacquainted.
A fantastic place for anyone looking to stay in clean, quiet and spacious accommodation. We loved it at Michele and Ian's place and thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay.
Michele home is in a small subdivision with a beautiful view of a small bay. The rooms are clean and private. Swimming pool is clean and public transportation is available in the area however Michele often drove us to the nearest subway.
I can thoroughly recommend staying with Michele.
The house is located in a lovely part of the Lower North Shore and the room is comfortable and well set up, with plenty of privacy and a wonderful view.
Michelle and her husband are delightful company and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and Sydney in general. Very easy going and generous hosts.
Michele is a wonderful host! She was very amenable to my questions, schedule and accommodated my late-ish arrival (delayed flight) and early starts! She provided a very nutritious breakfast each morning. Michele is a very interesting person so I found her very good company. The view of the bay from my room was gorgeous and if you are wanting to stay in a very quiet part of north Sydney to relax, this is ideal. Note: i) this area is hilly - so if you want to get around, be prepared for some good work-outs! ii) there are stairs to the bedroom in which you'll stay. Some lovely walks nearby through Osborne Park - hard to imagine you're in Sydney. I would highly recommend Michele as a host! Thanks.
