The Space

*****Self serve organic breakfast included*****

The Red Rooms is a bright 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor of the Bondi Beach Eco Garden. Nestled in the leafy quiet end of Hall Street in the heart of Bondi Beach, the Eco Garden apartments provide the ideal blend of privacy and community.

Natural Living
Natural organic finishes are used throughout, including polished wooden floors, beautiful mid-century modern furniture sitting alongside custom re-purposed and a range of designed objects. All of this adds to the character and sense of consideration that permeates the apartment.

Master Bedroom - Views of Garden
The north facing master bedroom has views of the garden and includes a luxurious queen sized bed made from reclaimed timbers by a local craftsman.

Second Bedroom - Skylight
The second bedroom includes a skylight to let the morning sun in (with louvres to keep it out if you so wish) and a comfortable queen bed. All linen is certified organic from local Australian manufacturers.

Sunny, Gorgeous Living Area
The combined kitchen and entertaining area of the apartment enjoys the afternoon summer sun across a huge bank of south facing windows. Open them for the refreshing beach cross-breeze and enjoy the native trees and expansive open space the rear of the property has to offer. The industrial styled kitchen features a combination of bamboo hardwood, re-purposed machining bench and stainless steel wash area. Four burner stove and a convection microwave cooking options for the holiday chef.

Garden
The front garden is home to a tiny pond, ornamental ferns, local plants and a vegetable garden – which you are welcome to farm for your meals. We have 5 happy healthy chickens out back who lay fresh eggs each morning and bees producing exquisite honey from our backyard hives.

Bondi Beach 5 minutes away!
Venturing out to Bondi's buzzing cafes and small bars takes only minutes and the beach is a further 5 minutes away. After the beach grab your racquet and enjoy a game of tennis at the wonderful courts adjoining the property, or stroll across a block and catch the bus service into the city.

It's tranquility with convenience, and all done with the planet and your well-being in mind.

****Christmas and New Year from Dec 20 to Jan 05 is a minimum 7 day booking on all of our accommodation.*******

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the "Red" apartment at the Eco Garden... it was a big part of what made our stay in Bondi Beach so special! The apartment was clean and bright, peaceful and comfortable... we felt so welcomed and right at home there. The welcome basket of eggs, organic bread, honey, and wine was such a thoughtful touch (and delicious!). Liza was so kind and helpful with directions in how best to "get around" the city, how to get to know the chooks, and how to meet all of our other needs. What a convenient location, too!! We could walk to the bus stop in 5 minutes (to go anywhere in Sydney and beyond) and about 2 more minutes to the glorious Bondi Beach... we were minutes away from hustle and bustle, yet our apartment was a peaceful quiet haven to go "home" to after our busy days. We highly recommend this apartment!

  • Great location near Bondi Beach. A leafy retreat amongst trees with great outdoor areas and view of chooks and tennis court. Beautiful designer furniture features, and great taste in complimentary wine, eggs, and bread. Stylish Aussie retreat.

  • Bondi Ecogarden is located on a quiet street no more than a 5 min walk from everything worth visiting in Bondi Beach; restaurants, convenience stores, bars and of cause the beach.
    It has a lot of soul and the owner, David Gravina, is 100% true to his ideals about saving this world and make it a better place.

    We stayed in the upstairs two bedroom apartment with our 2yr old daughter and all truly enjoyed the combination of privacy and possibility to socialize with other guests as well as the host and his sidekick Liza who made sure that no detail was missing and added a great personality.

    Things we missed and had expected at this price level was a dishwasher and a larger kitchen. Others might want a television and a washer/dryer in the apartment rather than the common facilities.

    Overall, this is the place to stay if you visit Bondi Beach for both a short or longer stay and like to meet others in a welcoming setting and gladly recommend it to others.

    For those of you with kids it is worth mentioning that Ecogarden has both a fish pond and chickens in the garden. Both highly appreciated by our daughter.

  • What a amazing place the Eco Garden 'Red Rooms' are! We arrived to a complimentary bottle of wine, honey from the onsite beehives, fresh eggs from the chickens and fresh organic bread. You couldn't ask for much more! The apartment was beautifully decorated and made us all feel very at home. What an unexpected find a few minutes up the road from the beach. Thanks to our lovely host Ben!

  • We all stayed for a week over the New year period, was excellent accommodation providing all the necessities with some nice touches added by David, especially the tasty eggs which were ideal for breakfast! great location in proximity to the beach with comfortable beds and excellent facilities.

  • The Red Rooms are bright, cheery and set in a really great location near Bondi Beach. David was an awesome host, very friendly and helpful. Upon our arrival we were treated with a nice bottle of wine and bread. Fresh eggs from the chickens are a bonus too :) We enjoyed the simple clean decor. It was a tranquil and private getaway but close to the buzz of the beach, really the best of worlds.

  • Our stay in Bondi, at the Bondi Beach Eco Garden Red Rooms, was fantastic. The apartment is very nice, stylish and clean. Even if we only stayed 5 nights we started to feel like it was our home. Fresh eggs from the chickens were extra bonus! The location in Bondi is perfect - close to everything.We plan to come back!

  • Although I was not able to go to Bondi because I broke my ankle the day before I should have left Canberra, Megan and Malcolm (daughter and son-in-law) had a wonderful time there. They loved everything about the Red Rooms, found Dave to be a delightful host whose local knowledge was very useful to them. They found the place charming and the closeness to the beach while still being in a quiet area was perfect for them. Megan asked me to especially mention the yoga on the deck early morning 2 days that they were there.

  • We stayed in the Red Rooms for three months and were very sad to leave. It took us by surprise how much we felt at home there! What touched me most was how much our host was making us feel part of things at the Eco Gardens. So much that in the end we could not conceive of the place without us there. ;-) The red rooms worked out perfectly for us as we could be part of a community and have a very private space at the same time. Our children as well felt completely at ease in the entire grounds of the Eco gardens. They made a habit of feeding the fish, exploring the garden, speaking to new arrivals and even people on the tennis courts. The time at the Eco Gardens occupies a very special place in our lives, more special than we could have ever imagined beforehand. Thank you Dave for making it possible!

  • Eco red garden es un real oasis de páz y tranquilidad en Sydney. Con sus altos techos, pisos de madera y cantos de pájaros este departamento se siente como una verdadera y acogedora casa.
    Al llegar te espera un delicioso vino orgánico, flores frescas , leche
    e, mantequilla y pan recién salido del horno!! Detalles que hablan del buen anfitrión que es Dave Gavina; siempre dispuesto a ayudar en lo que él pueda (desde un secador pelo hasta mandar sus datos preferidos
    del barrio)
    Realmente estar en la casa de Dave es un aporte a la experiencia de viaje a Australia!
    Muy Recomendable!

I love working on projects that make a real difference to peoples lives and, in particular, experiencing the incredible impact it can have at the local level re-building connections while we transition to sustainable communities. I have 4 beautiful Rhode Island Red hens and 2 busy bee hives and must admit i'm slightly addicted to eggs and honey. My guests tend to leave that way too!
