Stylish and eclectically decorated two bedroom Bondi apartment.

Located a 15 minute walk to the famous Bondi Beach, with public transport at your doorstep, this is the perfect base for enjoying all that Bondi and Sydney have to offer.

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

The space

Welcome to my home in iconic Bondi beach. The apartment is well located on the transport route to the bright lights of the city centre (7 kms: 15 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic conditions) and a brisk 10 minute walk down to the beach.

The apartment is set peacefully at the rear of a boutique refurbished Arts & Crafts period apartment block, the 104 m2 space is very comfortable. It has high ceilings, is well furnished in an eclectic 'boho' style and I keep it very clean and tidy.

The private bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, fresh towels & sheets, wardrobe, dressing table and free internet. Tea, coffee etc and basic home products (laundry/ cleaning products, etc) are included for your stay.

You have shared use of the bathroom, kitchen, laundry (with washing machine & dryer) and the living area, including the sunny roof top deck. The bathroom has both a shower and a large bath where you can relax and ease muscles after a long day in the surf.. The kitchen is fully equipped and you are welcome to use the pots and pans and kitchenware if you would like to cook.

I work in the city everyday and enjoy the Bondi lifestyle on weekends, even if it's just walking down to the beach/esplanade to watch the waves, or hang out at the many beach side cafes with friends - there is always something to do or see in Bondi..

Guest access

Help yourself to any appliances in the kitchen, blender, toaster and kettle along with basics like teas, oils, herbs and spices.
There is a microwave, a washing machine and dryer, iron, bathtub and a hairdryer. Help yourself to any of those.
I have wifi internet and a full bookshelf if you like reading.
Fresh towels and beach towels if you're heading down for a swim. There's a surfboard and boogie boards if you're adventurous.

Interaction with guests

I also live in the apartment, so it is important that we remain friendly and respectful of each other's space.

Please ask any questions about your stay or about Sydney/Bondi in general, I'll be happy to help you get the most out of your holiday.

Other things to note

Free all day street parking is available - but can be hard to find close by after 7pm (though lots of parking further down the street).

There are Go Get cars in nearby streets.

Francine and her niece Soline could not have been more friendly or accommodating. The apartment is very Boho and airy. It is clean and comfortable with a lovely communal roof garden. It is 15 minutes walk from bondi beach and the same distance to the train and bus station where you can travel into Sydney in about 10 minutes. Perfect location really!

My partner and I recently stayed at Francine's for a week while we were looking for our own place in Sydney. The apartment and room are very clean, comfortable, and spacious and have really cool and unique decorations (as well as a lot of books). Francine was very communicative and welcoming and a joy to talk to. I would definitely recommend staying at her place when in Sydney!

Francine was a great host and made me feel like home. The day that I arrived she wasn't home but she had everything solved to handed me the keys and to be able to access her home. The description of the place was accurate and the neighbourhood was quite and close to the train station and to the beach (15 minutes walking each)

We very much enjoyed our time at Francine's. The location of this place is perfect. It only took us about 20 min to get to the beach (walking) and about 30 min to get into the city center by metro and bus. Francine's place is very cosy and clean. She was happy to help us with everything we needed. We would stay definitely again!!

Francine was lovely, she was very helpful with tips and advice on Sydney. The apartment was very nice with excellent wifi, a great rooftop deck area and interesting art on every wall. It's only a short walk to either Bondi Beach or Bondi Junction so nice and handy to everything.

Hi, welcome to my page

I am a pretty laid back professional, I work in the city Monday-Friday as a policy advisor for a government department and enjoy the beach and social lifestyle of Bondi and Sydney on my days off.

I am healthy, energetic, fun/serious, open minded, you'll know up front what you need to know about sharing a place with me and I hope to expect that you will do the same with me so that we can live together in harmony. If you book the entire apartment I will greet you and leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace.

I have travelled extensively and appreciate the little things that can make an arrival/stay in a strange or new city/country a positive experience.

What I enjoy: reading, the arts, arthouse/international films, people, learning, puzzles, walking, riding my bike, sitting in cafes discussing everything and anything, people watching, catching up with my kids (they've left home), music, silence, nature, the ocean and much much more :)
