A modern, stylish apartment exceptionally located -- perfect for discerning travellers who value design and comfort, and strong desire to experience the true Sydney on the sought-after harbor peninsula.
Come and be my guest.
Why stay at a place devoid of character and history? Or be insulated in a tower with no sense of place, far removed from the essence of Sydney and its legendary harbor?
A place to call home.
The apartment is located in a quintessential Sydney peninsula, right on the harbor and next to the City. Significant majority of the houses in the neighborhood are heritage protected, retaining the original structure and history of the area and that of Sydney. The streets ooze distinctive character of yesterday, today and tomorrow, while the café and restaurant scene pulses vibrant energy that is distinctively Sydney.
The apartment is brilliantly located with one block to the famed Darling St. (where all the cafés, restaurants, and shops are located) and one block down to the waterfront Sydney Harbor. There are frequent buses and ferries to the City and various other locations in greater Sydney area.
“Mi casa es su casa.”
The newly renovated apartment is bright and airy, with sunshine spilling into living room and bedrooms. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area has a nice flow and affords easy living with extra comfort.
The apartment boasts two generous sized bedrooms with two queen size beds (can sleep two people on each bed). The rooms feature large windows overlooking native eucalyptus and banksia trees, and houses in Balmain/Birchgrove area.
From my travels I have learnt to appreciate quality and comfort – a good night of sleep is priceless. Therefore in my place all bed sheets provided are designer and 5-star hotel high quality sheets – Donna Karan, Errebicasa, Garnier-Thiebaut, Sheridan, etc. I would like you to have good rest while you are here.
The open kitchen was designed by a top agency to allow for modern convenience and free flow of space. The selected benchtop is of a rare marble mined in northern Australia, the uniqueness and rarity of the stone adds character to the apartment. The result transformation speaks for itself, the kitchen is aesthetically pleasing and it also became the heart of the place.
The kitchen is also fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, cutleries, plates, bowels, etc. ensuring your stay is nothing but comfortable and convenient.
The balcony has view of Balmain/Birchgrove and North Sydney, with frequent visits from rainbow lorikeets, cockatoos, and various other native birds. The table set allows for outdoor dining or even a cup of tea!
The bathroom is newly renovated to be crisp and clean with separate shower and bathtub (no need to climb into the bathtub to take a shower!). I will also provide towels for all the guests.
Wi-Fi, Blue ray DVD player
42" LG TV and Blue ray DVD player are provided. Wi-Fi is also included to make sure you are connected to the world at large.
Note: The apartment is in a boutique apartment block with only 12 units/households. It is located on the third level reachable via staircases. My friends dub it “the stairway to heaven”!
During your stay, you will have easy access to the City and Sydney harbor. They are right on your doorstep! Frequent city-bound buses are one block up the road and 10 minutes ride to the city center (QVB). The ferry wharf is at the park down the road from the apartment, and it provides an easy ferry ride into the City, Darling Harbor, Milsons Point/Luna Park, Circular Quay/the Rocks, Pyrmont, and Cockatoo Island.
I can also provide parking permits for street parking if you have a car.
Meet and Greet
I will meet you upon arrival and help you settle in (walk through the place, introduction of the area, transportation, etc.)
I do respect your privacy, and believe you should have the freedom to explore and enjoy your stay without obtrusion. You are more than welcome to contact me anytime during your stay if you have any question or would like more information.
- The apartment is a much-loved place, please treat the place like your own.
- All of our neighbors are young urban professionals, please be mindful with no noise after 10pm or before 6am. Beware of the acoustics on this street, anything that is being said on the balcony will be shared with the rest of the street!
- We live in a residential area with lovely neighbors so we would appreciate no parties, strictly no smoking (in and outside of the place), and no pets.
- Please leave kitchen clean and tidy upon departing, including plates, pots, etc.
- There is recycling for the garbage. We would appreciate your help with saving the environment by sorting recyclable waste into the appropriate bins.
We hope to host you for minimum of 4 nights per stay/booking. Thanks!
*****Christmas/ New Year Holiday Period*****
The apartment is perfectly located for New Year's Eve celebration. From the Mort Bay Park 3 mins down the road, you can see fireworks from Sydney Harbour Bridge and all 6 fireworks firing from the boats in the middle of the harbour -- so you will be right in the middle of all the actions! As we will be away, we are hoping to host only one guest reservation from 24th Dec to 3rd Jan (minimal) with no change over in between. Thank you in advance, and we look forward to welcoming you to our place.
