The Space

This two-storey, 90m2, townhouse style apartment is ideally located for those wanting to take in the sights, sounds and flavours of Sydney. When entering this security apartment you will be impressed by the spacious feel and spectacular views of the Bridge, Opera House, Finger Wharf and complete City Skyline.

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. The comfortable sized bathroom has a spa bath and laundry facilities.
Both levels have state-of-the-art reverse cycle air-conditioning but the design of the apartment is such that natural cross-ventilation is often easier and just as comfortable.

Although only moments away from the Kings Cross nightlife with its pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants, and conveniently close to trains and public transport corridors, yet the apartment is far enough away to not be affected by the noise - one can be assured of a peaceful night’s sleep.

This is '4 star hotel' quality accommodation with the added comfort and convenience of full kitchen facilities and lounge. Optional security car parking is also available.

LOCAL AMENITIES:

FOOD SHOPPING
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.

WHAT'S CLOSE?
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 (website hidden) maps.)

TRANSPORT
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.

SECURITY
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. (Real estate agents refer to this section of Potts Point as 'the Parisian end') At the other end of Potts Point there are nightclubs which get busy with 20-30 year olds from about 10pm to 2am on weekends, but they cannot be heard from the apartment - in fact you could sleep with the windows open without being disturbed by music, people or traffic noise.

CLEANING
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.

  • What a great stay in an apartment with views over Sydney's iconic bridge and opera house. We were met by Tim, the apartment was exactly as described and we had a very enjoyable stay. It was a toss up whether to eat out in the local 'hood' or enjoy a BBQ with those wonderful views. Will definitely stay again. Thanks for late check out also!

  • Location of apartment is good! From the balcony, we get the splendid view of the garden, harbour bridge, Wooloomooloo wharf and Sydney Opera House in the day and at night.
    In fact, walking to the various attractions are about 30 mins only! There are bars and pubs, supermarket and restaurants around the area. Walking distance yet not noisy at the apartment.

    The apartment is cosy and kept clean. Tim has utensils and cutleries for cooking and eating in.

    Surely recommend this apartment!

  • I am more than happy to give Tim's apartment five stars! Not only does the property have a great view in an ideal location, Tim was also awesome to deal with! He always communicated very well and was very detailed in his instructions for finding the apartment, which was very helpful as someone new to Sydney.

    The property was spotless and the lady who met us with the keys was great to deal with.

    Let me just reiterate as well that the view was simply amazing! Absolutely stunning!

    Hi Luke
    I greatly appreciate you going to the trouble of leaving a review and then such a positive one. As my first Airbnb customers you now have a 10% discount next time.
    Also, about the one set of keys - l wished you rang me as there are two sets - one uses key entry to the main gates and the second has a proximity sensor. I'll make sure Maggie points this out to others.
    Cheers
    Tim
