ABOUT THE LOCATION:
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.
CAR SHARE IS AVAILABLE!
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.
GYM'S, YOGA & PILATES?
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 one level up in building (coin operated). Plus I've installed a great drying rack in the bathroom in case you want to handwash anything.
Yes, there is a hairdryer!
ADSL2+ wireless internet, 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.

Charlotte and Chris were superb, attentive hosts! The apartment has recently been renovated and is immaculate and very comfortable. The design and amenities have been well thought out and we had everything we needed.The location was amazing, a few steps out the door and there are some truly excellent coffee and dining spots! The next time I am in Sydney I will certainly stay again.
it was excellent. great location, great place and very well managed. the suggestion book had some excellent tips for restaurants, cafes and general things to do. the flat had a very nice style and was very clean. the bed was first class. we would definitely stay again.
We had a great stay in Potts Point. The apartment itself is very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again if we are in Sydney. Charlotte and her husband were great hosts. The book they compiled about Sydney providing local places to eat and see as well as a map for a beautiful run through the botanical gardens helped to make our stay in Sydney a time we will never forget. Cheers!
a perfect appartment for a short or longer stay in Sydney. The apartment is brandnew and has everything you need. Location is great and there is a file with loads of nice things to do in sydney.
My son and I stayed at Charlotte and Chris's Potts Point apartment for 3 nights last week. We loved the location: very close to Kings Cross station, walking distance to the city and harbour as well as Surry Hills.
The apartment was very clean, light, airy and comfortable.
We couldn't open the kitchen window but all the others opened to allow a breeze, then close when the late night revelers were making their way home.
I'll definitely be back from the country for another stay with my husband later this year.
Charlotte's apartment was perfect for us. Its location couldn't have been better in the heart of Pott's Point. It was spacious, newly renovated and newly furnished and with a great deal of effort being put into providing everything we needed from kitchen utensils to detailed guides of walks and nearby restaurants produced by the owners. Even the keys were colour coded to the door locks. Charlotte's husband couldn't have been kinder: when we turned up in a car he manged to find us an unrestricted spot to leave the car a few minutes walk away. The apartment was also very reasonably priced. In short an exceptional place to stay.
