The house is situated in a very quiet suburban street only minutes walk to gorgeous Maroubra Beach with its great surfing. Even closer is the lovely Mahon Pool rock pool which is a safe and gentle place for the children. Walk from our house along the coastal walks all the way to Bondi Beach or take the car and you can be there in only 15 minutes. Our home is a wonderful place to spend the summer holidays being so close to a number of beautiful Sydney beaches and the weather and water remain warm and enjoyable from September through to June. In winter enjoy Sydney's great indoor attractions such as our fabulous museums and art galleries.Transport to the centre of Sydney (20 minutes)via bus is also very close by taking you directly to the beautiful Opera House and Harbour. We are located close to the University of NSW, shopping malls, a number of popular golf courses ( we have two sets of clubs for your use) and the airport close by, it is a very convenient location.
