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.

We loved staying in Sydney. It was made even more special by staying at Prue and Lynleigh's apartment. They were very accommodating and helpful on our arrival. It was nice to meet both of them as well. The welcome guide was extremely helpful. The location was excellent for exploring Sydney. The view was spectacular and to die for. Everything was as they explained and very cleaned and well stocked. We already miss it.
My kids and I loved staying here. The views were captivating day and night and even in the rain when a stunning rainbow appeared from the harbor just down from the building to over the Harbor Bridge. Prue was a great host, stopping by and helping us plan more of out trip. The location was fabulous. We loved being in Kirribilli and ate most of our meals from the cafes there. Would love to stay here again some day!!
Nicht zu übertreffen!!! Grandiose Ausblicke, perfekte überkomplette Ausstattung, Topzustand, perfekte Lage und großartige Gastgeber :-)
What a fantastic experience we had staying here. loved everything about this property, location, views, comfy beds, excellent hosts. top of our list for a return holiday in Sydney.
Prue and Lynleigh could not have been more welcoming and accommodating - sending us very thorough information before we arrived and keeping in touch with clear instructions by text. The flat was very clean, sunny and the view - simply stunning! It was a holiday in itself to look out on the harbour and take in the beauty of it all. We could easily walk to the train or ferry and the local shops had every type of food imaginable! A thoroughly enjoyable stay in every way. Would LOVE to come back again.
This apartment is a MUST. Absolutely Magnificent view. Great location, close to all modes of transport. The apartment has a beachy feel, and all the rooms are very spacious. It was great to live in a spotless place. It really felt like home.
The view is a knockout. Very comfortable, clean with all needs catered for. Prue is friendly and has thought of everything, even the shipping news. Hope we get a chance to come back!
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.
