“A wonderful Place”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in August 2016

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. The location is just the right distance from the city hustlle while still being easy to get to any destination from.
Locally, there are some lovely places to eat (I had to buy a cookbook from The Bather's Pavillion) and of course the beach is at your toes.
A definite to consider for your trip to Sydney.

“"A perfect place in a perfect location"”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

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!

Helen and David were extremely helpful. We would definitely visit The Oriana again.

“Paradise in Sydney”

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 to relax and enjoy a wonderful part of Sydney. I am going back next year and hopefully the year after that or as long as it is available.

“Amazing location”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

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.

“A Dream Come True”
Reviewed 13 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

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 decor which balances the genuine historical nature of the property with modern fittings. I was a little concerned at the lack of air conditioning before we arrived, but to be honest, it simply wasn't needed given the refreshing sea breezes that the location benefits from.

I think The Oriana is a unique property and a wonderful opportunity to get to know the Balmoral setting and community. We loved the walk though to Taronga Zoo and the ferry service.

Parking can be challenging, but Helen has all the local knowledge to guide you on how to deal with this - and it wasn't an issue for us even on the weekends.

We will definitely be back to enjoy this little slice of paradise!

“A Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 12 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Thank you for again letting us share your piece of Paradise. Another wonderful stay! We love the relaxed open living spaces with abundant light and glorious views and appreciated the welcoming little extras - homemade slice (2 kinds) and bottle of wine. A good place to stay with family and/or friends - great accommodation, great beach and great restaurants nearby. We'll be back!

“Stunning white sand beach”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our stay at the Oriana was fabulous. The location, being on the beach is absolutely spectacular and it was so convenient for the children. We all had a fabulous time playing on the sand, swimming, lapping up the sun and view to die for. It is furnished beautifully and well equipped. was extremely nice and so accommodating. The Oriana offered little extras such as fresh cupcakes and wine for our arrival which really made our stay memorable. I would highly recommend the Oriana and we can't wait to come back.
