At entrance level is the lounge area with quality leather lounges and modern stylish decor. This opens on a generous size balcony - perfect for alfresco dining or to just sit and relax after a day’s sight-seeing while watching the sun set behind the CBD, Bridge and Opera House. The fully equipped kitchen and dining area is also on this level.
Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms each with queen size beds, and built-in robes. There are two newly renovated bathrooms, one with a generous size bath. Separate laundry facilities.

Sydney's major tourist destinations are within easy walking distance:
The Opera House, CBD shops and theatres, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay and The Rocks are all within 30 minutes walk or 6 minutes by taxi.
The Botanic Gardens, Art Gallery, Oxford Street / Taylor's Square are 10-15 minutes walk.
Lifestyle amenities - train station, supermarkets, King Cross nightlife and dozens of quality restaurants are within a 5 minutes walk.
Double Bay, Paddington, Darlinghurst, Surry Hills are only 6 minutes by taxi. Bondi Beach is 12 minutes by taxi.
(The above times and distances are as estimated by Google maps.)
There are very good supermarkets nearby - 300m to Harris Farm (gourmet fruit & veg); 400m to Woolworths; 500m to Coles (these latter two are Australia's largest supermarket chains).
On Saturdays 8am to 2pm there is an Open Organic Food Market held at Fitzroy Gardens which is 350m away.
The nearest train station (about a 5 minute walk away) is Kings Cross Station.
(Kings Cross is not an officially designated suburb of Sydney, but rather a locality encompassed within the suburb of Potts Point and known for its nightlife)
It is on the ‘Eastern Suburbs Line” which runs as follows:
• Central (the primary inter-change - all trains pass through this station);
• Town Hall (effectively the centre of Sydney CBD)
• Martin Place (the up-market,business and financial centre)
• Kings Cross (at the centre of Potts Point)
• Edgecliff (closest to the up-market Eastern suburbs of Double Bay and Woollahra)
• Bondi Junction (location of Sydney’s largest Westfield shopping centre and short bus trip to Bondi Beach)
Travel time is about 4 minutes between each station.
TAXIS run frequently along Victoria Street and are easy to hail down. We’d be surprised if you had to wait longer than 5 minutes for one.
Is the place safe? The apartment complex is very secure. There is CCTV coverage at all entrances. To enter the apartment there is an initial security gate, then once inside the complex one walks across a courtyard to another security door to get into a group of 8 apartments, then one goes up a flight of stairs to the apartment which has its own deadlock. Outside the apartment complex Potts Point has a vibrant village atmosphere with tree lined streets and outdoor cafes.
A maid for cleaning? Cleaning during your stay is not included in the price. There are laundry facilities within the apartment as well as professional laundry and dry cleaning services adjacent the apartment complex on Victoria Street. For those booking longer stays we can provide the details of a domestic cleaning service if required.
