What makes this Apartment unique
The lovely garden and outdoor courtyards surrounding the apartment, make the space quite unique. The location, close to Paddington 5 ways, Oxford Street, shopping and attractions, make this a great base to explore Sydney.

Well-situated, within walking distance to Rushcutters Bay, Oxford shopping, and direct bus to Bondi.
Kathryn’s apartment is in a great spot, just a short walk to beautiful Rushcutters Bay Park, great Oxford St and Five Ways shops and restaurants, the vibrant Kings Cross neighbourhood, and a direct bus (#333) to both Bondi Beach and Circular Quay. While comfortable overall, the addition of table lamps in the lounge and bedside reading lamps in the bedroom would make a significant improvement, as other guests have pointed out (overhead lighting is still the only option). The private garden is lovely, but it would be far more enjoyable if not for the apartment’s location at the intersection of two very busy streets. Light sleepers will want to keep their earplugs handy, especially in the summer months as the lack of A/C means the bedroom windows need to be open to catch the breeze. For those using the pullout couch in the lounge, however, this isn’t an option as there are no screens in the lounge windows to keep out the mossies. Kathryn kindly stopped by with fans, which made a huge difference during a particularly hot stretch.
Hi Jeff - it was a pleasure to have you stay at our property. As you realised upon arrival, you had selected a property without air conditioning. The apartment is quite breezy with flyscreens in the bedroom and windows, allowing for a flow through breeze.
Note your request for additional lighting, an easy fix.
Wishing you well on your travels and perhaps back in Sydney during the cooler months.
An excellent location for visiting Sydney
The apartment is good, the furnishings are a bit spartan, and the lack of a microwave is strange. TV reception is very poor and often unwatchable. The outdoor garden space is simply awesome!
Thanks for letting me know about the tv. We had problems in the past, which we thought were resolved, but clearly not. Glad you enjoyed the garden and location.
Hope your move to Sydney goes well:)
A very well located easy access ground floor flat with privately fenced outside deck area
We found the kitchen dining & sitting room flowed into one. Useful storage cupboard for our suitcases & laundry cupboard very handy. Nice bedroom with ample wardrobe & window seat with under storage
Only negatives were no microwave, overhead lamp in sitting room , nor bedside table & lamp & TV reception was poor
As expats returning home it was an ideal key for 6 weeks to find our feet. Our host responded by return & nothing was too much trouble- thank you Kathryn
