About This Listing
Welcome to our lovely apartment with stunning views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. In the heart of Kirribilli, with its famous village atmosphere, you are minutes from both the train station and ferry wharf, providing speedy access to the city and all it has to offer.
Recently renovated in a relaxed modern style, the two bedroom apartment has an open plan lounge, dining and fully-equipped kitchen, all looking out at the opera house.
All the amenities you would hope for in an apartment are here - including a combined washing machine/ dryer for the occasional rainy day!
The master bedroom is spacious with large built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom is much smaller with 2 single beds. The bathroom is small but fresh and bright.
Imagine yourselves sitting on the sunny balcony eating breakfast and gazing at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. There is also a wealth of dining options within close walking distance if that is your preference.
In short, it is the perfect apartment for 2 or 3 people, and fine for 4, as long as you're friends!
You will have the apartment to yourselves, with unlimited wi-fi and pay TV to enjoy.
Although we generally require 3 night stays, we do accept 2 night stays if there are gaps in the couple of months ahead.
Although we have stipulated check-in and check-out times, we're happy to be flexible, depending on bookings.
Interaction with Guests
Your hosts live close by and like to meet and chat with their guests, as well as giving them the option of privacy.

Please respect the neighbours and do not make too much noise - especially on the timber floors.

The apartment was fantastic! Magnificent views, exactly as described. Clean, comfortable, and well appointed. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation for a group of 3 to 4 people, and hope to find it is available for our next visit to Sydney. Thanks to Prue and Lyn Leigh for everything!
Prue & Lynleigh were fantastic hosts who made us feel very welcome and were incredibly helpful. The apartment is gorgeous, sparkling clean, well equipped and the view is absolutely amazing. A short walk to the ferry to get into the city, or a leisurely walk over the bridge, or even the train was within walking distance. Kirribilli has plenty of cafes/restaurants and the streetscape in the surrounding area is truly beautiful. I would highly recommend staying.
Great communication, easy access, nice apartment, good location, fabulous view! We loved our week-long stay. Highly recommended.
Prue was a lovely host! The apartment was perfect . We had an amazing stay in Sydney . The view from the apartment was stunning . Wish we'd had longer . Thanks for everything Prue :)
It was our pleasure, Angus
It was lovely having a father & son travelling together & even lovelier to watch "Grand Designs"with you!
Come and stay again and we can watch another episode!
Our handyman has returned from holidays now, so we'll get him onto the kitchen window
Amazing views! The unit is close to several restaurants, cafes, and public transportation. The hosts are extremely organized, with instructions for everything in the apartment and recommendations for local eateries. They quickly respond to e-mails. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Prue was fantastic. She met us and help us get settled. Apartment was fully stocked and extremely comfortable. THE VIEWS. What a sanctuary of an apartment to return to after a long day of seeing the sight. Even the bit of rain we had did not bother us with the fantastic view. Apartment is in a great residential neighborhood with shops and restaurants and has easy access to the train. Just a wonderful stay!!
Amazing apartment, got to be the best place to stay when visiting Sydney. the views are fabulous, day and night. the apartment is modern and clean, and every need is catered for.
Really close to Milsons Point to catch the ferry into CBD, and the local area of Kirribilli is great for eating out, our favourite was "Bangkok Sidewalk.
It was really nice to meet Prue, a nice personal touch, and on hand if needed.
I would not consider staying anywhere else next time I visit Sydney.
Thanks for everything Prue.
About the Host, Prue
We are two professionals in our 50's who have decided to embark on a new and exciting venture with Airbnb.. Lynleigh already runs her own apartment as an Airbnb which is located in an adjacent building, just across the road. She has found it to be a fantastic experience and has enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life, so we thought we could start to run this unit in the same way.
To give you a little bit of background about us, Prue lives in the lively and eclectic inner-west suburb of Newtown, where she has worked for the past 30 years. She has three children in their 20's, two of whom live at home with her. She loves the outdoors and among many things enjoys walking, bike-riding and yoga.
Lynleigh has worked extensively overseas, and speaks fluent French as well as some Spanish. She enjoys reading and all forms of exercise.
We are both keen travelers, enjoy the theatre, eating out as well as entertaining at home.
