My bright and sunny apartment with large north-facing balcony feels modern and comfortable. It's in the heart of Bondi Beach with tranquil garden views and minimal noise. The apartment is well decorated and fully equipped. Public transport out front.
The apartment is right in the middle of Bondi Beach centrally located (without the noise) to all the restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets, shopping and beaches. It's north facing creating a bright and airy living space. From the large balcony there are garden views and sun most of the day until around 4pm. The kitchen is bright, modern and well-equipped. Both the bathroom and bedrooms have been recently redecorated, they are generous in size and freshly painted.
Help yourself to any and all appliances. There is a coffee machine, blender, toaster and kettle along with basics like cereals, milk, teas, oils, herbs and spices.
There is always a shelf free in the pantry and fridge and there's a freezer and a microwave and a barbecue and a washing machine and an iron and a bathtub and a hairdryer. Help yourself to any of those.
I have tv and wifi internet and a full bookshelf you will have full access to.
Fresh 1000 thread count linen, towels and facecloth are provided along with nice big beach towels if you're heading down there. There's a beginners surfboard available and i can give surf lessons too for a small fee.
Interaction with Guests
I'm a wine consultant and i'll be at work most of the weekdays and some weekends. I have local knowledge of the area and i'm more than happy to point you in the right direction for whatever you need.
I can also customize a wine tasting for you please just let me know.
It's a really nice apartment close to everything you will need and in a wonderful area. It's like a bird sanctuary in the trees surrounding the apartment. It's become quite a spectacle with parrots, cockatoos and occasionally kookaburras. There are 2 (sometimes more) local but wild cockatoos (Hank & Archibald) that like to hang around and you can feed them from your hand on the balcony. Apart from that i have no pets.
There are so many things you should experience locally and in the surrounding area to try list them all would be foolish. Just ask when you're here it would be my pleasure.
50 metres from the front door there's a bus stop and a short ride to Sydney Subway. Paid parking is available out the front or free parking in surrounding streets. Taxis are frequent in the area.

Calvin was there to greet us upon our arrival and showed us the facilities and passed over the keys. The room was very clean and well equipt and the apartment was in a very central location which made our stay more enjoyable. Calvin made us feel at home and we enjoyed his hospitality.
We stayed at calvin's for 1 week and had a fabulous time. The apartment is in a very good location, super close to all the restaurants, cafés, the bus station that brings you in the city and of course the beach.
The room is big enough for 2 people and you have enough storage room for all your belongings.
Calvin is a great host; he can give you good tips on where to eat out, what to do in Sydney. He made us feel as if this was our home as well. Overall, it was a great experience and I would book this room again, if I'd come back to Sydney.
What a perfect first airbnb experience. Calvin was absolutely lovely, friendly and welcoming. Gave us the local information we needed upon arrival and then enough space which made us feel right at home. Beautiful little apartment very close to the beach, quiet balcony and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Would go back again.
Calvin was great and made me feel super comfortable in his apartment. I wasn't there for long, but had access to the kitchen, laundry, you name it, and enjoyed our conversation and some of his recommendations. Thanks, Calvin!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

The room was nice,very clean,comfortable beds,get a lot of sunshine,close to beach.

Such a great stay with Calvin, he is a great host made us feel very welcome and at home, very helpful with allowing us to drop our bags there earlier to check in as we had early flights. The bedroom is spacious and very clean and the bed is super comfy!!! Access to use the whole apartment as if it were our own!! Great location, a nice short stroll down to the sea front! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others !!
I'm a Bondi Beach local who has been living here for 10+ years. I enjoy surfing, music, reading, travelling, my work (wine consultant), cycling, swimming, movies and meeting people to name a few. I've travelled extensively and lived in many places around the world but Bondi is where I call home.. for now ;)
I'm pretty relaxed really and don't take myself too seriously. I like meeting new people and listening to their stories over a glass of wine or a meal or coffee or even over a kinder surprise. I'm a bit outdoorsy, well, at least I used to be now I just think tents are for savages. I do like the sun though, which is outdoorsy, even when it attacks me and I end up with a gleaming bonce.
I really liked that movie "Laurence Anyways" amazing soundtrack too.
Foreign Films I have a bit of a soft spot for.
Charles Bukowski favourite writer
Southpark favourite show
My mothers lamb shanks favourite food....still !
As a host I'll always respect your privacy, I'm not a close talker and I know when to shutup. I'll be at work a little bit but occasionally I can work from home which I generally do in my room so you'll have the place to yourself a lot.
I genuinely get along with anyone
