Perfect accommodation is at the heart of the perfect Sydney escape. Where to find it

In partnership with Getawayz NSW

Reserve a front row seat on Sydney Harbour, soak up ocean views from deserted golden beaches, seek out bohemian vibes in the inner-city.

The sophisticated Getawayz NSW accommodation portfolio guarantees holiday heaven wherever you decide to unpack. To take the pulse of Australia’s most celebrated city, choose from waterfront retreats, luxury inner-city apartments, chic urban studios, arty villas, or charming escapes via the city’s fringe.

Getawayz NSW is a boutique rental agency representing some of the city’s finest homes, for short or long stays. They are ideal for special occasion gatherings of family, milestone celebrations with best friends, or romantic trysts for two.

Working on the assumption that there is a perfect Sydney sanctuary for everyone, Getawayz NSW puts quintessential Sydney within reach.

Yes, you can wake up to breathtaking views of the Sydney skyline or plan an early morning stroll on Bondi Beach. But also factor in locales like harbourside Kirribilli and no-holds-barred Newtown and those authentic, under-the-radar destinations like the beaches at Avalon, Queenscliff and Newport.

The exclusive places to stay there will help shape indelible holiday memories.

The Bungan, at Newport Beach, has direct beach access and ocean views from every living area; it’s the perfect retreat for up to 14 guests. Walk to Bilgola Beach or Bungan Beach, which you just might have all to yourself. Bilgola Beach has a 50m rockpool and a kids’ pool; its surf break makes it great for swimming and bodysurfing.

More beachside bliss? The Headland at Queenscliff is where to find it. Fresh, spacious with a big outdoor entertaining area, it’s a modern family home that boasts six bedrooms and can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests. Walk to buzzy, beachy Manly or its chilled Freshwater Beach sibling.

The Governor II, at Avalon on Sydney’s northern beaches, is a modern home with Sydney sandstone detailing and an inviting swimming pool; it can accommodate 11 guests. Avalon Beach is 37km from Sydney’s CBD. It is flanked by a popular surf beach on the east and Pittwater to the west. People love it for its village feel and remoteness.

Closer to the city, atmospheric Kirribilli never disappoints, its properties keenly sought. Heatherbrae I is a luxurious three-bedroom apartment with an outlook to the city and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Reflections is a two-bedroom stunner that takes in the Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, and harbour views with two balconies to maximise them! Harbourview, too, has views and harbour action to die for and each of the two bedrooms has its own bathroom.

Artscape is a new series in the Getawayz NSW portfolio. Check out Artscape, Newtown Villa, a family home that can accommodate 12 guests. It’s close to transport, great food and music and has atmosphere to burn. Artscape, Bondi Beach Villa, can accommodate up to eight guests. When not chilling in the courtyard, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to Bondi Beach, shops and restaurants.

Getawayz NSW travels far and wide. You’ll find their accommodation in all the right places: from Potts Point, Balmain and Neutral Bay to Enmore, Cronulla and Balmoral Beach.

Out of town, for those wanting serenity on steroids are establishments like Highgate, a grand getaway in Bowral in the Southern Highlands; Rockpool, a beach cottage in Coledale on the South Coast; Scribbly Gum Cottage in Kangaroo Valley; or White Water, a luxury home in Kiama on the South Coast.

The establishments in the Getawayz NSW portfolio are well equipped, and detail, on their website, all that’s available to guests in each one. They throw in tips on local attractions and give you insider info on where to eat. A holiday is, of course, as much about memories as a comfortable pillow!
