A truly sensational place to stay when in Sydney (not just accommodation) See, ever-changing views from every window. It enlightened my senses (and cleared my mind of stress) by staying at this glorious penthouse. It was thoughtfully equipped for our use and, ultimate enjoyment. We were pleasantly woken by the Kookaburras' morning laughter, often in time, to prompt walking or, early breakfast, viewing the glorious,orange and pink sunrises over the ocean and headland (unforgettable). Wonderful local eateries, (also sensational due to close proximity to the blue ocean.) Conveniently located to Mosman boutiques and selection of other shopping places. Also, buses, ferries to the city, Taronga Zoo, Manly plus, many other festivals, parks places and spaces to explore. It's all here to enjoy with your family and friends. Nothing compares! A truly unforgettable stay and, with very kind sincere hosts, Helen & David. Looking for and excuse to return soon ! Sincerely, Angela
The Oriana is in a wonderful location and was perfect for our stay. We booked the apartment for a business trip and it was absolutely perfect. We needed to stay in Mosman and wanted somewhere that was close to where we needed to be daily and somewhere that was comfortable for the evenings when we needed to discuss the days events. Lovely beach location and good access to local amenities. Thank you to Helen for a clean, easy to use apartment. Also thanks for accommodating our early arrival, it was very much appreciated.
This was our 5th visit to the Oriana and everything was as perfect as ever. The location right on the beach is superb and the views over the harbour exceptional. The furnishings are comfortable. Helen, the owner, and her husband are very thoughtful and considerate. Can highly recommend.
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.
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.
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.

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.
