Description

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 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,

There are three bedrooms. A long hallway comes off the lounge room. The first bedroom comes equipped with a king sized bed which can be split into two long singles which are comfortable for big people too. A third single (trundle) 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 another queen bed, a lounge and its own ensuite bathroom. Access to the large entertaining deck with BBQ is through the third bedroom. Crisp 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, an enormous 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 eight people.

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. While there is no parking space provided, there is free on-street parking within 5 - 8 minutes walk of the apartment and metered on- street parking in front of the building

The locality

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. Stumble upon organic food stores and cafes, eco friendly clothing and gift stores, captivating jewellery stores and the famous Bondi Sunday Markets only a block from the apartment.

Sydney Airport is a twenty minute drive away, with a taxi costing around $50 each way. The Sydney central business district is about twenty minutes by bus, with excellent shopping available in the nearby Bondi Junction.

Enormous character beachside apartment is rated 4.931 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! What a fantastic apartment!! The location is amazing.. within a few minutes we were standing on the sands of Bondi, with lots of cafes and shopping close by too! The breakfast at Neighbourhood (which is a few doors down from the apartment) is highly recommended. The apartment has everything you need and I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Bondi! 10 out of 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A spacious, clean, comfortable apartment, able to accomodate our 3 families. Comfortable bedding. Well equipped with laundry facilities, large kitchen and dining area. Also lots of board games available. We especially enjoyed the Simpson's chess set.Eating out was easy with many good restaurants nearby. IGA opposite the apartment, so easy to buy groceries.I think top points for the apartment is the fact that Bondi beach was just a couple of steps away from the apartment.Lovely beach, fantastic views. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great location right in the heart of Bondi. ATM, restaurants, shops and beach very close by. Also surprisingly quiet considering it's located on a somewhat busy street. Beautiful apartment that was very spacious with plenty of room for nine adults. Such a treat to stay there, you will want to move in permanently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing apartment Our family immediately fell in love with this apartment!  It is spacious and well loved and in the most ideal location for enjoying the beach at Bondi.  We were greeted by the owner who was extremely helpful and gave us lots of local information.  The kitchen is huge and well equipped and the bedrooms are all comfortable and roomy.  It is a seriously cool place and happens to have a very cool bar just down the road called Neighbourhood which does the BEST cocktails.  You cannot hear any noise from the bars nearby as the apartment is set back from the road so this is not detrimental to the accommodation in the slightest.  It is a fabulous location and I will dream of returning for many months to come.  Thank you.
