“Oriana is the most stunning, relaxing & comfortable holiday place in Sydney”

Our family spent around a fortnight staying at Oriana at Balmoral and had the most relaxing and memorable holiday of recent memory.
The location is unsurpassed in Sydney with commanding views of North and Middle Head and within a pebble throw of Balmoral Beach.
Being able to walk straight onto the beach without crossing the road is very unique and made the holiday both safe and fantastic fun for our 4 year old twins.
We intend to be coming back to Oriana every year and in fact rate it our best holiday in a
decade. The proximity of the Balmoral cafes, the safety of the water rock pool directly in
front of the house, as well as the beautiful restaurants make the environment second to
none.
We were sad to leave but will definitely return.

“Stunning view, relaxed setting to offset the running around Sydney touring”
Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

The location of Oriana is unique with a kid-firendly beach, stunning views and a number of cafes and resturants to walk to - all within 10-15 minutes of Sydney CBD (downtown) for those touring. The apartment is kid friendly because it is right on the beach which allows easy in-out shuttling from beach to meals and back again and the beach has a walled-in pool to avoid waves if there are any. The stunning views of the harbor and the north Head have ferry's and sail boats passing all day long and the resturant and cafe selection is fantastic, although staying in and cooking in the apartment is great as well. The facilities are very well updated with plently of closet space and utensiles, etc.

“A pristine paradise with the personal touch!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

This family owned and run holiday paradise is highly recommended for a number of reasons. It's position on beautiful Balmoral Beach is unique and very special, and has a range of great restaurants and cafes in the immediate area, all within a short walk to Mosman. The property has been very tastefully renovated and is full of "old school" character, offering some quite unbelievably spectacular views across The Heads and beyond. This beach is one of the best kept secrets of Sydney, without loads of tourists or surfers.

The owners live below but are in no way intrusive. They are lovely, down to earth folks who have lived there for 40 years and are generous and thoughtful in their approach to providing a home away from home. Upon arrival we were greeted with a show around the property and left with a plate of home made slices and cakes for afternoon tea! How gorgeous is that?? This is a small example of the kindnesses they showed us during our stay. We dealt with various members of the family and all were just delightful.

Overall a very special property with great facilities, immediate proximity to the beach and a smart part of Sydney. Perfect for families, groups of friends and special occasions. I look forward to returning.:))
