Our family from Kuwait visited Australia and stayed in a few capital cities. We have to say that our 6 day stay at Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront was the most wonderful accommodation we have had, when considering we have travelled the world. The host Geoff organised the free shuttle bus to and from the airport, and made many suggestions of restaurants and daily activities. We also booked the shuttle bus for sightseeing around the Sydney beaches and other tourist sites. Geoff had done his research and had the fridge and cupboard full of all our cultural food requirements for free. The kids enjoyed the Foxtel, Stan and Netflix. The free Opal cards and local mobile phone also came in handy. The location and views from the apartment are unbelievable. We thoroughly recommend this apartment to any local or overseas visitors, and we hope to come back again in a couple years.
The best location and views. Provides comfort and warm environments The world best host " Geoff " would give you the best real time info. for Sydney and the best tips for trip. The views from the balcony is really fantastic and you can enjoy Darling harbor's fireworks on every Saturday 9:00PM in the balcony. I was very impressed by host "Geoff" 's passion and attitudes towards his guests. I felt like being with my old friend even though it was a first visit to Sydney. And the location is also fantastic for travellers - accessibility to downtown, transport and good restaurants... etc. I recommend you this pearl pleasantly.
The nicest 2 waterfront apartments and service in the world. We will be back !! For our first week in Sydney I stayed with my partner in “Apartment B”, and can see why they call it the “Lady Gaga Suite”, the most beautiful and furnished apartment on Sydney Harbour. Its appliances, size and views are second to none. We were able to use the apartments’ free shuttle bus for airport transfers. The Apartment is better than the photos present. Upon payment, the owner Geoff emailed us his Welcome Pack App detailing every major attraction, and good value restaurants in Sydney. And recommendations for the best 8 ferry, bus and tram sightseeing tours in Sydney and the Blue Mountains, using the free Transport Opal cards supplied . The complimentary daily breakfast supplies were superb, being able to have breakfast on the private balcony overlooking the nicest harbour and city views in the world. Each day it was hard to leave the apartment with its views, and do some of Geoff’s 8 travel-tour recommendations on the ferries, trams and buses, whose stations are all located within 100 meters of the apartments. After coming home each day we firstly relaxed and refreshed by having a swim and SPA in Sydney’s nicest indoor rooftop pool and SPA. Then to top it off, we had fresh seafood or pizza and a bottle of wine on the private balcony terrace with our other travelling friends at night. As for the owners in the adjoining suite of this Dual Key apartment, Emma the lawyer was working interstate, and we only ran into Geoff the accountant for the initial Meet & Greet – induction of the apartment and the rooftop indoor pool, SPA, gym and Sauna, and then to say goodbye at the end. Geoff was away surfing all the time, but was on call if needed. For the second week, we just had to do it, we stayed in “Apartment A” which sleeps 6, with two other couples travelling with us from India, to finish off those 8 tours. We received VIP treatment in both apartments, in our memories forever.
Just perfect !!!!!!!!!! I booked “Apartment B” for me, my wife and my 10yo son which sleeps 2 adults, plus a child. It was for that special occasion – A holiday on Sydney harbour, a long way from our home in Switzerland, to visit Sydney as a start to our holiday and then to a few Australian cities. “Apartment B” is a Dual Key double apartment with the nicest harbour views in Sydney. It is adeptly nicnamed “The Lady Gaga Suite”. Geoff the owner lives in the adjoining suite. We only ran into the Geoff when he assisted us with - the meet and greet induction of the apartment and its amenities, including the best indoor rooftop pool in Sydney, and then to say goodbye. Geoff offered to cook us breakfast, but we were happy to cook our own using all the free breakfast supplies in the fridge and cupboards. I thoroughly recommend “Apartment B” for couples, solos and business travellers. Our son just loved the pool and the large smart TVs with Netfix and Stan. Geoff has an entire list of “Activities and Food Outlets”, which are all good value and perfect, and you must try and do as many of his recommendations as possible. We borrowed the apartments’ BMW for one whole day and visited the Blue Mountains We made use of the free airport shuttle bus which picked us up at the airport gate and took us to the apartment, then also for the return trip to the airport. We will be back to Australia in the future with family or friends and next time and will book “Apartment A” which sleeps 6. We inspected “Apartment A” and it is perfect for a family of 6 or a group of professionals. Both apartments come with complimentary breakfast supplies, Opal cards for the ferries, trams and busses, etc, etc, per the listing. We will be back. Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront is the only place to stay in Sydney.
Loved the location & all facilities were great
Excellent location, perfect facilities, helpful staff, the owner was really nice and very helpful providing useful information about the property and facilities close by and provided above and beyond what was expected for us to enjoy our stay. We will definately stay here again and I will recommend to others.
The best location and apartment in the world !!! The hosts Geoff and Emma communicated excellently all our pre stay special requirements. They spent a lot of time showing us through the apartment complex including the secure car spaces, indoor rooftop gym, spa, sauna and pool. They also pointed out all the nearby attractions and transport points from their balcony — Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife Park, Madame Tussauds, Sydney Tower, Bus Stop , Tram Stop, Ferry Wharf and Taxi Rank. All of these are a 1 to 5 minute walk from the apartment. We did all Geoff and Emma’s suggested ideas on sightseeing, attractions and restaurants. They were all perfect. And thanks for the Aussie phone and sim card supplied. We didn’t have time to use the apartment BMW offered for daily travel, as there was too much to do locally. We didn’t expect some free breakfast foods, and white and red wine and other goodies supplied. The kids loved watching STAN and NETFLIX on the 75 inch Samsung Curve Smart TV. And I watched Foxtel sports in the bedroom. We have travelled the world extensively and must say the apartment, location, and attractions are at the very top of the list. We hope to visit Australia again next year, and will definitely stay in this apartment, and will refer our friends and family from overseas to this lovely apartment in the meantime.
There are so many great things about this property, location, view, amenities, host and all the added extras on arrival that just topped it off.
The view was INCREDIBLE!!
Geoff, the owner made a point of meeting us when we arrived and was also there when we left to ensure our airport transport arrived. He supplied us with prepaid travel cards for the ferries, gave us a tour of the building when we arrived explaining where the pool, sauna was and pointed us in the direction of the local supermarket,bottle shop and recommended local restaurants.He supplied us with a full fridge and a cupboard full of supplies. The apartment itself was way beyond our expectation, the most superb view of Darling Harbour and Sydney harbour. Make sure you make use of the balcony on a Saturday to watch the fireworks at 9pm. We stayed in Sydney for 3 full days but 5 would have been ideal. Thanks again Geoff, you are a true Gentleman that made a fantastic stay just exceptional.
OMG !!! The most stunning “Dual Key Apartment” in the World. Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront has two apartments, and we opted to rent the “Waterfront Private Suite” for 2 persons plus our 2 year old daughter. It lived up to its reputation as “The Lady Gaga Suite”. A super stunning apartment with absolute waterfront views over Sydney Harbour and Darling Harbour. We ourselves own a luxury resort in Thailand, and thoroughly recommend these two 6 Star apartments on Sydney Harbour, one that sleeps 2 plus a baby, and one that sleeps 6. We learned a lot about hosting for our resort during our stay and how to treat guests like VIPs. All public transport- ferries, light rail, buses and trains, are within 100 metres of the apartments. All cultural restaurants are within 100 metres of the apartments. Too many things to do, the best location in Sydney. Both hosts - Geoff & Emma were very warm people and showed us all the building amenities including its best indoor rooftop pool, SPA, Gym and Sauna in Sydney. They provide Continental breakfast supplies daily, and a couple bottles of wine and a bowl of fruit per stay. Prior to checkin they emailed us their ELECTRONIC WELCOME BOOK which details everything you need to know about the apartments and nearby attractions. Their recommendations for lunches and dinners were spot on. Geoff was away surfing and Emma working interstate most of the time, but both were on call on the phone for 2 small enquiries we had. We will be back every year and will be referring our friends and Thailand Resort guests to them.
The hospitality was exceptional,location perfect and facilities in order.
Geoff was such an amazing host! The apartment was clean and the bed linens and towels were so posh! Geoff went over and above by supplying a stroller for us as well as groceries. He even offered us his car. He met us upon arrival and stored our bags for us until check in time and showed us all around the property. He lives on site so is available at all times. Definitely recommend this property! Oh and the location is insane!!! Absolutely perfect!!!
All together 4 adults and 2 children stayed at this wonderful waterfront Darling Harbour apartment, with its panoramic views of Sydney Harbour, Darling Harbour and the city. For our couple who travelled from interstate, Emma kindly picked them up at the airport. It was only a 15min trip back to Darling Harbour. Our hosts Geoff and Emma showed us around the apartment block, this included a 25m heated indoor pool, SPA, sauna, a gym and some great views of the city. We also had a secure car space for our car. They also left for us 2 bottles of nice wine, opal cards for all, chocolates, cookies and a bowl of fruit. The apartment had all the comforts needed. The Welcome Brochure was very helpful as it had NBN WIFI username and password, plus how to use the 75inch Samsung HD curved TV with Foxtel, Netflix and Stan. It also had suggested 3 restaurants, two of which we used and were of excellent quality and value. We took Emma’s suggestion and spent one night entertaining some other visitors on the balcony terrace, and had pizza and spaghetti delivered. The view of the city lights was an experience. There was an excellent workspace in the apartment including a computer and printer but we were too busy to make use of it. Geoff also offered us the use of his car if we wanted too. The Welcome Brochure had a few suggestions of where to drive and visit – Nowra, Blue Mountains and Central Coast. Once again we were too busy exploring the city and only managed to visit one of the suggested sites in their Welcome Brochure. Across the road was a bus stop, tram station, taxi rank and ferry terminal. These facilities make it very convenient to visit all the local attractions. Also, the girls loved the Peta Alexander bathrobes and the Sheridan towels. We have no hesitation in suggesting using this apartment for a place to stay and we will definitely be going back, at least once a year.
Nowhere else is better than Waterfront Apartment in Sydney The location is wonderful! View Darling Harbor from balcony. Plenty extras prepared, fruit, opal card, food even a BMW car! Nowhere else is better than this property. Thank you.
The property is so convenient to all entertainment, views were amazing and the host Geoff was fantastic. Looked after us like we were VIP'S. We were given opal tickets to use the light rail/ferry and the unit contained all sorts of food goodies and wines so we were set up without having to go shopping. Unfortunately, we did not have time to utilize the amazing spa/swimming which was on the top floor of the building with the gym room as well. 5 star is for sure. Loved it, best place to be in Sydney.
The location was excellent and the accommodation was spot on
Good location, beds are comfortable，2 supermarkets, many nice restaurants around, great views, nice kitchen, the owner is very friendly and helpful
Normally book into large 5-star hotels but they were all booked out in Sydney due to a ship breakdown, so I found Geoff’s waterfront apartment next to the Sydney ICC on Airbnb. The apartment was fantastic - the largest and classiest bathroom, walk-in wardrobe, bedroom, workstation,.....overall, excellent facilities. After booking, I was sent their Electronic Welcome Book detailing their FREE airport shuttle, continental breakfasts, NBN-WIFI, Australian phone with Aussie no and $50 credit, 2 opal cards for use on the ferry, light rail and Bondi Beach bus, overseas power adapters, a few bottles of alcohol, and bowl of fruit. Their shuttle bus driver collected me from the airport. Geoff greeted me at the suite and gave me a 15-minute induction on all the building amenities, local attractions and restaurants. After , work I enjoyed the nightly use of the rooftop indoor pool and sauna, and also after dinner watching Netflix and Stan on the 40 inch TV, and also having a wine on the large private terrace. I borrowed the apartment’s BMW for one day for a client meeting. I thoroughly recommend this apartment to any guest who wants the best location, views and service in Sydney. It sleeps 2 singles, or a couple and baby cot if needed. Excellent for business people and travellers.
They call it “The Lady Gaga Suite” It lived up to its name - The most beautiful dual key Private Suite in the world. Our holiday and its organising exceeded all expectations and beyond. The host - Geoff”s Electronic Welcome Book gave us all the best value activities and restaurants to try out which we did. The Opal cards supplied to use on the ferry to Manly Beach and Lunar Park, bus to Bondi beach, and light rail to China Town were spot on. It was hard to venture out each day and leave behind this waterfront view of Sydney Harbour, Darling Harbour, the city skyline and all other things Sydney harbour has to offer. Our most memorable moments will be sitting on the balcony every night with a few of our friends who came over from other hotels they were staying at, drinking a few bottles of wine, just watching this apartment’s waterfront spectacular views. We just stayed at home every night to have dinner to watch these majestic views. No other hotel in Sydney has these views, and the building amenities with the rooftop indoor, pool, SPA, sauna and gym are superb. Geoff stacks the fridge and cupboard with plenty of food supplies. The beds are super super comfy. We will be back, and recommend this beautiful spacious apartment to anyone visiting Sydney.
Awesome location for our Sydney getaway! Myself, my partner and our 2 children decided it was time we spent a weekend in Sydney and thought the Sydney Darling Harbour Boat Show weekend would be a bonus. My brother and his wife who live in Sutherland also decided to stay with us at this Sydney Darling Harbour Waterfront apartment for the 2 nights. I previously came from Sydney but didn’t realise how much has changed around the Darling Harbour precinct, with the building of the new Entertainment Centre, Convention Centre, The Star renovations and other recently built night life establishments. We were fortunate that Geoff picked us up and dropped us off at the airport as we had minimum luggage. Geoff also offered us the use of his car for the 2 days, but we had my brother’s car anyway, but didn’t need either of them as we were too busy catching up on all the local attractions. Emma inducted us through the apartment complex and provided a WELCOME BROCHURE detailing the usernames and passwords to their NBN WIFI, STAN and Netflix. The WB also detailed all the local attractions within 10 mins walking distance, eg, Sydney Aquarium, Wildlife Park, etc, and all the best value restaurants in the area. Also Emma organised a babysitter for the 2 children on Sunday night so the 4 adults could see a show at the Opera House. We spent our second night entertaining old Sydney friends on Geoff & Emma’s balcony from which the views are spectacular over Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour and the city. Geoff & Emma also provided 6 Opal Cards, noting the Ferry Wharf, Light Rail, bus stop to Bondi Beach and taxi rank are all adjacent to the apartment. My son was very disappointed he had to get on a plane and go home, and leave what he was calling his second home. We must say that our stay was well coordinated by Geoff & Emma, and the photos of the apartment are authentic. We highly recommend this Sydney Darling Harbour Apartment to other guests. Jason
The accommodation was in a perfect location and our host Geoff was exceptional- making our stay very comfortable and memorable. Walking distance to shops, harbour ferry and attractions! Great WiFi as well as Netflix and Foxtel to keep the kids entertained while mum & dad enjoyed the harbour views on the balcony!! Geoff had the apartment filled with essentials and was very helpful with suggestions to do on our stay- even down to dining recommendations- which was delicious!! Our stay just wasn't long enough!!
Our stay at this property was awesome! The apartment was immaculate, very spacious and the views incredible! The location was excellent, close to public transport and also an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. Our host, Geoff was very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the area and nothing was ever too much trouble. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely be staying again!!
Location perfect, host Jeff was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure me and my family were looked after. Stayed in October 2017
Fantastic location. Modern comfortable apartment with generous inclusions. Great communication with Geoff before and during the stay. Great value for 6 people.
Loved the location & all facilities were great
Apartment was beautifully appointed with every possible thing you would need. The owner supplied many thoughtful extras to make your stay just perfect. The location and views were exceptional. I would recommend to anyone visiting Sydney.
Geoff was a wonderful host and very helpful with making our stay comfortable. He was flexible with our arrival time and also pointed out the activities and how to best use our time and the facilities. The location was fabulous and we enjoyed our stay. It was an easy return to the airport from there. We'll definitely return - thanks Geoff!
Everything we had no complaints - we stayed for 3 nights so had a complimentary airport pickup and drop off which was great and easy. Geoff the owner met us at the apartment and showed us around the apartment and all the amenities like swimming pool. Sauna, fitness area. Gave us plenty of local information on places to visit, eat etc. The use of a local phone was fab as were meeting friends in the city for dinner so used this to contact them. Opal cards were supplied and we used these for getting to Bondi to do the Bondi to Coogee walk. We had fresh fruit, milk, cereals, eggs, bread, butter and jam in the fridge when we arrived for our breakfasts. We also did a trip to the Blue Mountains but didn't fancy a typical tour on a bus with lots of random stops so we used one of Geoffs contacts and had a driver who drove us which was great. We also had the option of using Geoffs car during our stay.
Great place. Great location. Everything I expected plus more!!
From the moment we arrived our host Geoff was so warm and welcoming, he went above and beyond anything we have ever had in Sydney before. Geoff showed us every part of the hotel and our room was supplied with a beautiful big fruit bowl along with beer and wine. The location is like nothing I have ever stayed in so close to every attraction in Darling Harbour. This will likely be our go to place to stay with our family from now on.
Our host was welcoming and extremely helpful in assisting our family arrival and parking issues
I loved every aspect of this apartment. The size of this two bedroom two large bathroom apartment is incredibly. The views from the bedrooms is breathtaking and bought bedrooms open to a large balcony, presenting you with the most glorious backdrop in the world. SYDNEY DARLING HARBOUR what more could you want. Situated minutes walk to the CBD minutes walk to the Sydney ICC and all the restaurants and coffee shops you could ever dream of. Absolutely AWESOME POSITION. The apartment also has one large refrigerator and a bar fridge,they were also stocked with bottles of beers sodas juice and bottled water and many other goddess all complementary. HOW GOOD WAS THAT. Very impressed.
The owner Geoff is very concerned that we had a comfortable stay. He has done everything in his power to ensure that, and has provided facilities for us that go far beyond what is expected of our stay. I would recommend this stay without hesitation to anyone visiting Sydney. Stayed in June 2018
Geoff's apartment is at a prime location, overlooking the harbor, and has a balcony with an amazing view . Its right next to the ferry and bus stops, and just a walk away from the busy city centre. The check in process is very easy . Geoff is an amazing host, made us feel at home, gave us useful tips on Sydney sight seeing and even lent us his GPS. :)
The apartment is in a fabulous location looking out over darling harbour waterfront. Geoff the owner/manager, is very attentive and offered additional perks such as opal cards and milk/bread of choice. A lovely weekend girls trip in a safe environment
The landlord is incredibly nice, he helped us with everything, the view and position of the apartment is great, few steps from the main areas. Definitely the best choice we could do!
Location, the room was very good.. Check in was good, host went out if his way to accomodate us really went that extra..
View and location couldn’t be beaten. Hosts were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble.
