Just in case you want more details.

Rich with local history, culture and sophistication, Potts Point is an ideal place to stay or visit. Situated within Sydney City, just a short 20-minute walk to the CBD and a stone's throw from Kings Cross Railway Station, so you can easily catch a train to some of Sydney's beaches major attractions. Sydney Buses, taxis and Car Share / Hire are also readily available in the immediate vicinity.

We live in the area with our six-year-old daughter, as does many young families these days. Macleay Street has gentrified over the last 10 years, and Potts Point is one of the most on-trend and affluent areas of Sydney. The area is highly populated and using simple common sense it's easy to stay safe.

Forget normal car rentals. Highly recommended and right outside the front door are two "GoGet" car-share "pods" and there are more than 20 GoGet cars within a two-minute walk. No need to worry about parking when you get back to the apartment if you sign up for these share cars - parking is free! Foreign licences are accepted, we will give you the address for the information pack and activation card. You should register before you leave home. Search for GoGet Car Share Sydney. Look for the FAQ's.

Dozens of restaurants, cafes and bars are on your doorstep. There's plenty happening in the area, and some of Sydney's best restaurants are a short walk (Otto - at the Finger Wharf, or Macleay Street Bistro, down the road, just two examples). One of Sydney's best new cafes (Room 10 - Voted in SMH Good Cafe Guide) is 10m from your door, and there are loads of great places to eat and drink nearby.
Wilbur’s Place (100m) and Bourke Street Bakery (200m) are just around the corner. You’re also just a short walk to the Italian hub of Stanley street; a 20 min walk into the city, via the Domain and Hyde Park; a 20 minute walk (or less) to trendy Surry Hills. I’ll leave you a list of my favourite eating spots on check in.

The apartment is 100 metres from the excellent Harris Farm supermarket (or there's an even bigger supermarket within 200metres); and there's a Farmers’ Market every Saturday only 80m walk away. I'll also leave the kitchen all set up with oil, vinegar, etc. so you can just focus on the main ingredients.

There's even a high-end caterer - "Sides & Main" - on your street, selling gourmet meals from their shop-front, so if you are too lazy to cook but want to eat in. Too easy.

Everyone knows neighbouring Kings Cross is famous for nightlife, but you may NOT know that its areas (Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Woollomoolloo and East Sydney) include some of Sydney's best areas to eat and drink in, all within a 5 minute walk. There are lots of hip small bars in the area - including on fabulous Llankelly Place, just near your building.
You can also walk 10 minutes to Oxford Street clubs, or just 20 minutes into the centre of Sydney (Rocks, Circular Quay, etc.). I'll give you plenty of tips on arrival.

If you like your nightlife more serene Govindas lounge cinema is about 5 minutes up the road, the Old Fitzroy Pub (so much character!) has a cheap theatre attached, and a great vibe. There are also numerous other local theatres and cinemas within walking distance. (I’ll leave you a few suggestions for all of this on check in).

Walk to Hyde Park or the Botanic Gardens; the Opera House (probably 30 minutes, via Hyde Park and the Botanic Gardens); or short bus/train to Bondi Beach or other eastern suburbs beaches. Potts Point is in Sydney’s centre, but has easy access to beaches, the famous Bondi-Bronte walk, and Sydney harbour (I’ll leave you tips with my favourite picnic spots and nearby walks).

Walk into the city, so easy! Potts Point is walking distance to George Street and the main centre of Sydney. The apartment is also about 15 minutes walk UNSW’s College of Fine Arts on Oxford Street, a quick bus to UNSW, easy commute to University of Sydney. The apartment is 10 minute walk to St Vincents’ Hospital. There's unlimited wireless internet in the apartment so getting online is no problem.

The apartment is located on the same street as P.E. Dept Gym and Fitness First is 5 minutes away. There are also a few boutique Yoga and Pilates classes in the local area. Just tell us what you want to do and we will advise you on some of the options.


⇒ The Potts Point apartment is up one level of stairs. No problem for most people but just letting you know...

⇒ Washing machine and dryer is on the top level in building (coin operated).

⇒ Yes, there is a hairdryer!
⇒ A iMac computer with ADSL2 and WiFi internet is provided of course!
⇒ Also free local calls available on the land-line telephone.

⇒ If you require extra bedding for the sofa bed and you are not paying for a third guest, a there is a one-time $20 surcharge for the additional laundry charges we incur. One-time and not per night. We ask guests to leave $20 on the table for our cleaners who manages the laundry services.

⇒ The extra bedding set for the 3rd guest comprises of 1 x flat sheet + 1 x fitted sheet + 1 duvet cover + 1 x duvet + 2 x pillow covers and pillows. There are also a couple of soft blankets to put under and and over the bedding for extra comfort.

⇒ The location is superb, but the Kings Cross area IS busy on a Friday/Saturday night. This is an action-packed part of town; one reason it's great to stay here. While the apartment itself is quiet, you may hear the neighbours occasionally, you will likely hear some noise from the street at night on the weekends. I think the location is totally worth it, but forewarned is forearmed, so they say!

⇒ Cars - Parking is available nearby but is a hassle, and it's expensive. Car rental locations are close by and GoGet car-share is easy and available close by. Locals walk everywhere or use the buses and trains

⇒ The location is so central this is easy. If you have a car I'll give you tips on where to park long term, and it's less than 5 minutes walk away. Kings Cross train station is only 300m walk away from the apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The flat was well-located in the Potts Point neighbourhood. Chris and Charlotte have perfectly fined organized the apartment with many indicatives plans of how to reach the main beaches and a list of hiking tours around the city. If I come back, I will pass by here for sure. There was a little incident with one of the neighbors who was refurbishing their flat and become the flat an complicated place to work. Chris was arranging in that term and we found a solution. Thanks.

  • We have enjoyed the appt overall. Good space and all was clean and functional. The neighborhood is Ok once you get familiar with it (you have to know which streets to take). Location is great with easy access to most of Sydney's main attractions by foot or train. Must get used to the strange bird sounds though!! But this is part of the travel experience afterall :-)

    June 2014
  • Great hosts - on checkin, Chris provided a wonderful overview of the neighborhood / city, and they have prepared a very helpful guide to great bars / cafés / restaurants / shopping / sights. The unit is good sized and was a convenient base to make home for a few days.

  • Decorated with taste, this appartment is the perfect place to spend a few days in Sydney in the trendy & lively area of Potts Point. Charlotte was a very good host and was very communicative in order to plan our stay in Sydney. Every little detail has been thought in this appartment for airbnb visitors.
    The bed was so comfortable!!!
    We also really apreciated Charlotte's guide including her advices for the bests coffees & restaurants in the area.

    May 2014
  • Charlotte was a gracious host, providing fast responses to all of our (email hidden) book explaining the area, the apartment, and places to eat, drink, and be merry. the apartment is great - light and airy, with high quality linen and a tasteful fit out. There is a little noise from the street outside, but that is to be expected from the location in the hustle and bustle of Potts Point. Altogether a great stay.

    May 2014
  • Beautiful apartment with a great location. Near by lot of restaurants and bars and about 30 min walking from the opera. It is a little bit noisy during the night but that is very acceptable.

    May 2014
  • A great place - clean and comfortable, and located in one of Sydney's best suburbs, with some of the city's greatest restaurants almost right on your doorstep. It's just a short walk to the Botanic Gardens and the city, and to neighbourhoods like Darlinghurst and Paddington, and the apartment is also amazingly handy to the train to the airport and transport to other parts of the city.

  • I stayed in Charlotte & Chris' lovely apartment with a friend in March. We had the most wonderful stay... Charlotte & Chris were very accommodating of our needs, coming to meet us late on a Friday, and allowing us a later checkout on a Monday afternoon. Chris met us and showed us through the apartment, which was very kind and thoughtful - there was even some food for us, and a collection of helpful things like umbrellas and iPhone chargers.
    The apartment itself was beautifully furnished, very modern. I slept on the sofa bed, nice and comfortable. Loved the big spacious kitchen, and the large living room. Also, the bathroom was quite nice - not small and cramped like some apartment bathrooms I've seen.
    The location is exceptional - I love staying in this part of town, and we are comfortable with it, as we always stay in Potts Point or the Cross when we visit Sydney. Fantastic food, easy access to public transport, and cheap taxis around to all the best attractions. Loved the food recommendations Charlotte and Chris gave us too!
    Really pleasant stay, and wonderful hosts! Thank you :) I look forward to staying with you again next time

  • The location was very convenient for walking to lots of interesting areas.
    The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Bed and linen of high standard.
    The hosts were very obliging.
    Thank you

  • Charlotte and Chris 's apartment in Potts Point was fantastic for our four night stay in Sydney. Chris was able to meet us at 10pm after our flight and gave us a quick rundown about what was nearby and transport. We were then happy to explore ourselves using the great maps and tips left in the apartment book! It was lovely clean, well located and quiet enough for me (a light sleeper) to have a great night sleep. There are some fantastic restaurants nearby, and it is a lovely 20 minute walk into the city. My personal favorite was Messina Gelato about 5 minutes walk away, I made the trip every day! Thank you Charlotte and Chris for your beautiful apartment we had a fantastic time and would recommend to everyone!
