Magic Views - 2 Bed - Mins to CBD

Apartment - Entire home/apt · A Upper Pitt Street, Kirribilli, NSW 2061, Australia

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.

The Space

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!

Guest Access

You will have the apartment to yourselves, with unlimited wi-fi and pay TV to enjoy.

Although we have set a minimum stay of 3 nights, we have increased that to 5 nights over the New Year period.
We'd like to minimise the risk of the sole purpose of the stay being a large New Years Eve Party.

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.
We have developed a manual, offering both practicalities and suggestions for outings.
Equally, your hosts are happy to provide those details in person.

The Neighborhood

Kirribilli is renowned for its village atmosphere so close to the CBD. It has a wide variety of cafes and restaurants as well as grocery stores, two pharmacies, two banks and a post office.

Getting around

The Apartment is only 10 mins to either the train or the ferry and then a few minutes (one stop) into the city.

The train trip from the airport takes 20-40 mins depending on connections (change trains at Central Station). By car it will take about 20 mins.

Other Things to Note

The apartment has a lift and can be accessed without stairs

  • This is a very special apartment and I cannot recommended highly enough to anyone visiting Sydney. Amazing location and views. Quiet neighbourhood with some excellent restaurants. The view is the real draw here, I don't think there is a better apartment in Sydney that can beat it. The photos don't quite do it justice, the view is even better in real life. The flat is very clean with a light airy and comfortable feel and Prue was an excellent host.

  • My bridesmaids and I stayed at this apartment the night before my wedding. My new husband to be stayed here the night of our wedding. The apartment and view is SO good that we forced ourselves out of bed the morning after our wedding, to have brekkie in the lounge room overlooking the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. We didn't want to miss out! We never wanted to leave!

    If you'd like a gorgeous apartment overlooking iconic Sydney, then look no further. The owners of this cute apartment are extremely welcoming and thoughtful.

    You must stay here!

  • We just loved it! Thank you for this great opportunity. Our trip to Sydney wouldn't have been the same without this lovely place. The view across the harbour with both, the opera and harbour bridge in sight was incredible and we watched the big ships go in and out...amazing. We felt very welcome, everything was thought of , free wifi, advice for nearby restaurants, ferry plans, thanks for making our stay a perfect one :-)

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Prue's apartment!! Thank you so much for having us.
    The apartment is in the safe area of Kirribilli only minutes away from shops, restaurants, train station and ferry terminal.
    Prue (and Lynleigh) were the perfect hosts, and the facility itself exceeded our expectations and was spotless clean. We felt like at home.
    And to top this all, we could enjoy this breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour when we came back from sightseeing in the evening. (What a nice idea to print off the timetable for the big cruise liners to come in!)
    Thanks again and we will be back!

    Thanks Katy, I think the cruise liners are exciting too!
    We'd love to have you back

  • The apartment far exceeded our expectations and could not have been more ideally situated.
    The views were absolutely superb and if you are a keen photographer like myself you will have a field day.
    Kirribilli (email hidden)ly district in respect of cafes, restaurants etc. but the apartment is in a quiet area but still giving easy access to the railway station and ferries to enable exploration of Sydney and its suburbs.
    I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it, as in addition to the facilities provided, the hosts Prue and Lynleigh could not have been more helpful and (email hidden)ank you both...Brian from the UK

    It was no trouble, Colin
    Please come & visit again!

  • Our stay at this apartment couldn't have been better. The view really is stunning - surely one of the best in the world! The accommodation is extremely comfortable - Prue and Lynleigh have put a lot of thought into what their guests may need and have provided it all. The location couldn't be better - so handy for the ferry and the train, or a short walk over the Harbour Bridge to The Rocks and Circular Quay - and what a walk! Restaurants, cafes and shops are all just a few minutes walk away. Prue and Lynleigh were extremely welcoming and helpful.

  • This apartment overlooking the Sydney Harbor was one of the best places we've ever stayed. It was totally clean and comfortable and our hostesses made us feel so welcome to Australia. The photos on the airbnb website are quite representative of the accommodations. The views were stunning. It was an incredible experience. Our only regret is that we didn't book it for longer.

  • Ideal location close to shops, transport and foreshore walks. Excellent cafes in local village. Unit is well appointed with good quality kitchen ware , linen etc. Beds and furniture were very comfy. The view is superb and warrants the "magic views" description. Prue and Lynleigh were very helpful with our queries and with local knowledge. Would not hesitate to recommend.

    Response from Prue:

    Thanks Alannah. Perhaps you could come & do some more walking sometime!

  • What can I say but amazing. The view was the best I have had from any accomodation and the flat was perfect with everything modern and new. Delightful hosts who kept in touch to make sure we were all finding everything ok. So close to public transport and ferries and the street in Kirribilli was also great. Enjoyed a wonderful 4 days in Sydney but it was this superb unit that made it extra special.

About
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.
