This enormous apartment is on the first floor of a ninety-year old character block of four, at the beach end of Curlewis St, adjacent to a number of cafes and bars and only a three and a half minute walk from the sand of Bondi Beach.
The apartment has been totally transformed with a New York style contemporary renovation, which included the opening up of the internal space to let in more air and light, new kitchen and bathrooms and a sun deck. While retaining the charm that has delighted previous visitors, the renovation has brought comfort and convenience up to contemporary expectations.
The apartment has been furnished and decorated to simply yet elegantly capture the essence of informal beachside living. With soaring ceilings, wide staircases and grand proportions, it harks back to Bondi's stylish origins in the early 20th century.
There is a private entrance foyer at the side of the building. Behind the door is a wide staircase which winds up to arrive in the middle of the enormous open-plan living area. To the right is the kitchen which incorporates a dining table for eight and opens onto a tiled north facing sunroom. To the left is the living room, with two comfortable lounges, one of which doubles as a sofa bed for excess guests.
A large fourth bedroom built into the attic level with a king sized bed will be available with rentals from September 2013, giving the apartment four large bedrooms. At this stage however, there are three bedrooms in total, all separated from the living area. A long hallway comes off the loungeroom. The first room comes equipped with two single beds which zip together to make a comfortable king sized bed if required. A third bed can be set up in this room if needed. The next room has a queen sized bed and the main bathroom is located adjacent. At the rear of the apartment facing onto the deck is the master bedroom with queen sized bed and full ensuite bathroom. Crisp white linen is provided on all beds.
The main bathroom and ensuite are both small, functional and ultra modern. The ensuite also houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The interior of the apartment is spacious, modern and comfortable while retaining abundant character with eclectic furniture and an interesting array of items picked up by the owners on their travels. There is high-speed wireless internet, a wide screen digital TV with blueray player, a stereo player with radio/CD/MP3, an amazing selection of design magazines and a choice of areas to sit and chat or lie around and read. The re-design of the apartment has maximised the living areas, which comfortably accommodate 8 adult guests.
If you want a break from Bondi's wide choice of cafes and restaurants, the kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and gigantic free standing gas/electric range with double oven. There is one free secure parking space available for guests use and metered on- street parking in front of the building for additional vehicles.

Bondi Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world and is visited by nearly two million people a year. Most summer mornings as the sun rises you will find a thousand people exercising on the beach or reserve, swimming and surfing. Its one kilometre stretch of sand can be covered by up to 50,000 people at one time. Bondi Beach is unique. It has a life and personality that reflects its diverse population. From local surfers, to young people who live in Bondi, to backpackers from all over the world, to multi-cultural communities, Bondi has it all. In summer, the beach becomes the playground for families. Bondi offers beautiful coastal walks, white sand, crowded surf, and lazy days. Great strip shopping lines all the small back streets where the locals like to hang out and drink coffee.
