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

  • An amazing place to stay! I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Sydney. Near the top of a building directly across from the Opera House and close to the Harbour Bridge, the view is awesome. Close to the ferry and the train, so we could get anywhere quickly and easily. Also close to restaurants and a grocery store. It's in an upscale neighborhood and we always felt comfortable walking around day and night.
    The place itself was very comfortable and well outfitted for visitors. Kitchen was well equipped. Beds were comfortable. Although small, our family of four was very comfortable. All of us would stay here again as our first choice on our next visit to Sydney.

    Response from Prue:

    Well, we'd be very happy to have the whole 4 of you again, Todd
    What a lovely, easy-to-get-on-with family!
    Please come and stay with us again

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Prue's apartment. It was very comfortable, in a great location - only a few minutes walk to the ferry or railway station, or even just a walk over the bridge and you are in central Sydney.
    The view from the apartment is stunning, it is next the the Harbour Bridge and looks directly across to the Opera House and business district.
    We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Thanks Robin.
    You were lucky too - the Vivid Festival was on, making the night time view even more spectacular !

  • Fantastic! In every way, just as we had seen on the Air BNB site. Prue and Lyneigh were excellent hosts. Our second stay was just as great as the first, the sights from the lounge window looking over the harbor were truly amazing, then the lights from the Vivid display came on and my wife and I just sat and watched. We are planning our next trip.

    We had thought about a BBQ ourselves, Pete
    What about if we make sure we have one for your next visit?

  • Our 2 night stay at "Magic Views" in Kirribilli with unobstructed views of the Opera House, Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbor Bridge was stunning!! Our 2 BR apartment with private balcony provided us million dollar views of Sydney Harbor. The apartment was newly renovated and beautifully furnished. It had everything we could have hoped for; a marvelous apartment to view Sydney at sunrise as large cruise ships came into Circular Quay area to moor , a short distance from the fabulous Opera House!!!!

    Kirribilli is a fun quaint town with nice shops and great restaurants. It is also a fantastic home base for getting into Sydney - by harbor ferry, train or walking across the Harbor Bridge with its fantastic views of Sydney.

    Prue was a wonderful host. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting her.

    Well, we really enjoyed having you Tim, and we'd love to have you again.

  • "Delivering more than you promise" is a perfect description for this apartment. The amazing view of the harbour, which includes both the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, hits you upon opening the front door. We could have easily spent our days watching the traffic on the harbour and the city come alight at night. Everything you could possibly need is provided in this cleverly designed, modern unit. The easy 5 minute walk from the station is another plus as are the numerous eating options and convenience stores which you pass along the scenic walk through Kirribilli village. Prue provided clear instructions on catching public transport prior to our arrival and all the info we would need during our stay. Thank you Prue and Lynleigh for what was a memorable 3 days and we would love to return for another holiday soon. Jill, Sally and Kathleen.

    Response from Prue:

    We'd certainly love to have you stay again, Jill
    We'd also like to visit Stanley one day - quieter but just as picturesque!

  • We had the most amazing stay in this apartment. Walking into the living area blows you away every time. What. a. view. !!!
    Prue was a fantastic and very welcoming host.
    The apartment is immaculately prepared and the location is ideal. You can use ferry, train or taxi to easily get around; or the surrounding neighbourhood can more than keep you entertained, and very well fed, if you don't want to venture far.
    We couldn't recommend this place highly enough for a stay in Sydney.

  • 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 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.
