About Loretta Egan
I am a Costume Designer for film and TV. I live with my journalist husband John, dog Ziggy and cat Poppy on the far north coast of NSW.
Loretta Egan purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Loretta Egan chose Bondi
We purchased this property so that I would have somewhere to stay when I working in Sydney- I am a freelancer so work on medium to short term contracts. John uses it when he goes to Sydney to visit friends and family or attend sporting or cultural events. In the meantime, we rent it out to visitors who enjoy the location and atmosphere of Bondi as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
We chose this place for its amazing location, between the beach and Bondi Junction, its proximity to public transport and the fact that it has its own lockable garage- a fantastic asset in busy Bondi, where parking is always problematic! As well as its own sunny balcony, the rooftop pool provides amazing views over the beach to the east and the city to the west.

Week in Sydney
My husband and I spent a week in Sydney Australia for a vacation, staying at this Bondi Studio. It had everything we needed. Good location, close to everything. Would recommend staying here.
Thanks Kathy, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay.
A fabulous stay!
My stay at Loretta's Bondi studio was even better than I'd hoped for. Spotless and well appointed, it is within walking distance to Bondi beach (I swam every morning) and Bondi Junction, from where I caught the train to further destinations. Buses to the city literally stop opposite the building. The area has a great vibe, with wonderful restaurants and busy cafes. Loretta herself was the perfect host and responded immediately and helpfully to all my queries. Can't wait to go back!
We spent five good weeks there when we went to visit our son and his family who live in an apartment 400 ms away on Ocean St. That proximity plus some good nearby shops and restaurants and the 380 bus stop just outside made for an excellent location.
When the weather was fine, walking to Bondi beach/Icebergs pool took 15 mins with just a few minutes more to walk to Bronte pool. Bondi Junction is a 10 mins walk with all the shops you could need.
The studio was well set up for a couple. Apart from breakfast we ate out but there was enough equipment to cover full time catering at home. The balcony was delightful with a glimpse to the right of the ocean. The view from the roof was possibly one of the best in the area, with views to the beach and the harbour. The pool was about 14ms long and looked well maintained but the rest of the area seemed quite bare.
As the owner stressed the studio is used as their place when they visit Sydney on business and is not set up with all-new kit as a full time rental. Understanding that we had an excellent stay and would highly recommend it. A final point is the garage. On previous trips we had rental cars; having a secure close by parking spot is a real plus for people who want to visit the larger area around Sydney.
Our apartment is located in the heart of Bondi- an easy 10 minute walk to the beach, and about the same distance to the shopping area of Bondi Junction. it is surrounded by a huge variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as services such as massage, medical and dental practices etc. there is a bus stop right outside where you can catch a bus to the city, or to Bondi Junction, where you can catch a train or bus to anywhere in Sydney.
