About This Listing
Enjoy a movie or just a quiet sit down. Really want to relax? Pull out the couch and put your feet up!
Come stay with us on the Paramatta River!
We have a bedroom with double bed and built in wardrobe in a three bedroom apartment in Meadowbank, on the Parramatta River. The large main bathroom is shared with one other person (Only if the second bedroom has a guest. If not, the bathroom is all yours!) and has both a spacious glass shower and a bath. Meadowbank is approximately 15km from inner Sydney and getting here is easy with the ferry, bus stops and train station all within 2 minutes walk (only 25 minutes to the city on the train).
Enjoy a glass of wine on one of two balconies off the lounge. Either cook in the fully equipped kitchen (with gas stove) or take advantage of the restaurants nearby, including Italian, Chinese, Japanese, seafood and Lebanese, all within easy walking distance. This apartment is seriously convenient, with a shopping centre underneath the apartment complex giving you easy access to a grocery store, fresh fruit and vege's, deli, liquor store, bakery, pharmacy, hair and beauty salon, post shop and more!

After having travelled around the world in 2012, we are two Kiwi's who have come to Sydney for a fresh start in a brand new city. We are excited to offer accommodation to other travellers and pass on the hospitality we received on our travels.
Sydney is a great city, full of life and fun things to do. We chose Meadowbank because of the easy transport options available, the close proximity to the water and the convenient location. We love that our apartment is located to catch all day sun, and gets a wonderful cooling breeze coming off the river, a godsend when Sydney really puts on the weather! We hope that you will find our apartment as sunny and comfortable as we do.
You will have access to the bathroom, common areas such as balconies, lounge and kitchen and the laundry. If you wish to use the laundry, please let us know so we can show you how everything works. Please ensure that you keep the common areas free of personal items and tidy up after yourself.
Within ten minutes walking distance, you have access to trains, buses and ferries.

We were welcomed warmly by Nick and Mahina with some cold sparkling water even though we arrived wet and untidy as a result of a few days hiking. Thankfully these hosts are sailors so understand the great outdoors. The unit was as described but honestly the close proximity of the ferry is really underestimated. What a joy to avoid the Sydney traffic and crowds on the train and instead walk 100 metres to the ferry and end up at Circular Quay in less than an hour via Parramatta River.
An overall great stay and a pleasure to meet Nick, Mahina and Bryony.
The house is fantastic, it is near the railway station and ferry station, just 40 mins to city. Many thanks to Nick and Mahina, good start for our Australia trip.
Lovely stay with nick, mahina & bryony.
The place is kept clean and tidy and had use of kitchen and living room.
room was good and had easy access to shopping complex steps away.
Easy to find and close
its a good place to stay, very convenient with a nice kitchen, living room, and bathroom,very close to the wharf and the train station ,Nick and Mahina were very good host.
My stay over with Nick and Mahina was fantastic. They are both very friendly and lovely people. The apartment is modern, clean, beautifully decorated. It has great location, walking distance to train station and supermarkets, and the ferry is literally two skips away. Mahina was very accommodating even when I had to check in late at night, but she still greeted us with a big smile, made me feel very welcomed. Unfortunately we didn't have too many chances to sit down and have a chat because I always went home quite late, but Nick and Mahina are well travelled people, whom surely have many cool stories to tell, if there is a chance I will definitely want to chill with them :) If anybody is looking for a nice place to stay with amazing hosts, then this is the place to go! Cheers!
Staying with Nick and Mahina was wonderful! They're such lovely people with big and welcoming hearts. Upon our arrival, Mahina immediately welcomed my sister and me, making us feel comfortable after our overnight flight into Sydney. They're full of many tips on how to explore the city, which was really helpful as we hadn't been to Sydney since 2006! The room was clean and cool -- just what we needed after long days exploring. We took the ferry into Circular Quay twice because we enjoyed it so much. Be sure to visit the pizza joint by the train stop -- Mahina will tell you about this awesome place!
I'd definitely recommend staying in this beautiful and airy apartment by the river. :)
One note: as they've mentioned, it's about a 25 minute ride by train into the city so keep this in mind when visiting. We didn't mind it, but others may like to have a shorter commute. The plus side to this is being able to take the ferry and to see what it's like staying up the river away from the hustle and bustle of the city. :) It's so quiet at night, you can hear the crickets outside the window!
Thank you Nick and Mahina for such a wonderful stay in your bay! :)
Thanks for having us guys. Great location, very friendly couple, lots of great pointers for us to enjoy around town, lots of introductions to new music (feel so out of touch in the music scene!) and clean and tidy. Hope to see you guys out skating once we pick up some new boards, too. Cheers.
