Kalinda is an absolutely unique experience, a very relaxed and comfortable home, located in a truly magnificent corner of Sydney harbour. We take a lot of care in providing a tasteful and attractive space for our guests to enjoy, that is not a holiday house, but truly a home away from home. Being so integrated into the tranquil atmosphere of Mosman Bay, you will feel that you're actually living on the water and will have to tear yourself away when it comes time to leave.
The property is a charming 2 bedroom apartment with fabulous views of the harbour.
It comfortably sleeps 4 with a 5th trundle bed available. The main king size bedroom is gorgeous, with folding glass doors onto the verandah. The second bedroom is stylishly decorated with 2 single beds. You can enjoy unlimited wireless ADSL Broadband and Foxtel IQ (platinum package cable TV). The carefully planned European kitchen is equipped with many extras to encourage you to exercise your culinary talents! Dine inside or alfresco on the verandah.
The block of 5 apartments share a lovely, shady garden with BBQ area, right on the water's edge. The home has a very nice holiday feel to it, especially the large open verandah with expansive views of the passing sailboats and ferries. The regular Sydney ferry service is 20m away and it's a 7 minute ride to Circular Quay (downtown Sydney). Whilst we don't have a parking space, there is unrestricted on-street parking in our street.
We welcome short or long term rentals for executive stays, romantic getaways, family holidays, relocations, weddings and are pet-friendly.
Kalinda is superbly located to enjoy the many attractions of this city and staying here you will get a great feel for an authentic Sydney lifestyle.
About the Mosman area...
Kalinda means "lookout" and Goram Bullagong is the aboriginal name for Mosman Bay. It was originally inhabited by the Cammeragal clan of the Guringai people, and after the first European settlers arrived in the 1800's a whaling station was set up here. Today it is a delightful inner city residential area with an enchanting character.
There are three ferry wharfs along the Bay serving the residential communities on either side. The regular chugging of the historic Sydney ferry service marks the passing of the day. Mosman Rowers Club and the CYCA yacht club are both located in the bay, providing an endless kaleidoscope of nautical views and sounds. In the evenings it all quietens down and the only sounds are the lapping of the waters and the clinking of the halyard ropes on the masts of the moored sailing boats, literally meters from your bed. You will feel that you're afloat yourself, until you're greeted in the morning by a cacophony of native birds and the first ferry coming by to pick-up the city commuters.
While you're here...
Mosman has plenty of local attractions, including the world-famous Taronga Zoo, some of Sydney's best foreshore walks and the charming Mosman village with it's cafe culture, boutique outlets, galleries and superb restaurants. There are some of the best harbour beaches in Sydney here, most notably Balmoral Beach (a favourite spot for Sydney locals), Clifton Gardens and Chinamans Beach..
Public transport from Kalinda is a breeze. The ferry wharf to Circular Quay is metres away and gets you into the heart of the action on a delightful 7 minute ride, offering the best views of Sydney's classic icons (Opera House, Harbour Bridge and City Skyline). Circular Quay is a public transport hub that will hook you up with the city's extensive bus, ferry, train and taxi services.
There is a bus stop outside our front door and the bus coordinates with the ferry. There are two regular bus services, one to Balmoral Beach (the other side of Mosman) and the other up to Spit Junction, through the heart of Mosman Village. You could also splash out on a water taxi, that will shuttle you over to almost anywhere on the harbour you wish to go. Perfect for reaching those tucked away little beaches or the many waterside restaurants on the harbour.
