We stayed at this lovely place, and would very happily return. Everything you could possibly need was available, so there was no need to prevail on Helen's very kind offer to ask if there was anything we needed. We felt welcome and at home immediately. The facilities were comprehensive and of a high standard. We were all very comfortable during our time there. And then there is the setting.... the photos don't do it justice....

Our two weeks holidays at The Oriana over Christmas and New Year period has been one of our best holidays! The highlight of this place was its location, right on the beach. Our 4 yr old had a great time on this super kids friendly beach. We caught up with all of our friends without leaving home! Great food options are in the vicinity. One can get used to the sound of the waves there!...

I have never stayed in such a warm and comfortable apartment like the Oriana. The owners were the friendliest people and so accomodating to our every need. The apartment is so beautifully furnished and has everything in there we possibly needed. The location is like no other on the best beach around. There is so many wonderful restaurants and places in walking distance. It truly is an unbelievable place to go with family and children...

Helen and David's home was perfect for our family get together. Couldn't be closer to the beach! Close to safe water play area for a 2 year old and the fabulous Boatshed café at the far end of the beach for a daily coffee/meal fix for all the adults. There was no need to use the car. An absolutely fabulous view. So even on a rainy day it was a treat. We will return.

My family and I staying at The Oriana for seven days and thoroughly enjoyed this incredible property which definitely has the "Wow" factor. Thanks Helen for your warm welcome and helpful tips on our stay. We have two young children (4yrs & 7yrs) and found the property to be completely suitable for them, with the immediate access to the beach being a highlight. The Oriana has everything needed for a great stay. We loved the...

About the neighborhood
Balmoral Beach is a hidden gem, situated on Sydney's middle harbour, a favourite beach with locals and not such an obvious choice of the tourist. With three beaches flowing into one another and an enclosed “swimming bath” section enclosed by a wooden boardwalk. The beach-front esplanade rising alongside the beach, as couples stroll arm in arm, children play while taking in the glorious beachside ambience. <BR><BR>Balmoral is home to some of Sydney's most awarded dining establishment's, even its local fish and chip shop won an award! Balmoral's local cafes provide the perfect backdrop to a quiet coffee soaking up the atmosphere to a good Australian breakfast on the beach, after a swim in the clear blue water. <BR><BR>Balmoral is the start of a breatht... more
