The Space

For your stay in Sydney, this private room will provide you 5 star hotel luxury with high quality furnishings, crisp white bed linen and fluffy towels in your own bathroom. Enjoy the sun in the morning as it rises over Redfern Park and listen to the birds chirp, you would never know you were 15 minutes from the city centre! Relax on the balcony for breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine or cold beer in the afternoon, reliving sights and sounds enjoyed throughout the day.

The bedroom is furnished with a very comfortable queen size bed (so my guests tell me, check out the reviews), plenty of wardrobe space with wood hangers and two fluffy bathrobes. You have your own bathroom which has a combined bath/shower, perfect for a soak at the end of a long day. The bathroom also has the laundry with a washing machine and dryer, available for guests to use.

The open plan living and dining area provides ample seating and the gourmet kitchen is fully equipped, including a Nespresso coffee machine for your morning coffee. I will provide basic breakfast items like tea, coffee, muesli, oats, toast, juice, butter and various jams and peanut butter. If you want anything specifically, let me know.

And to top it off, there is a good size lap pool and spa in the centre of the complex, with tropical gardens and BBQ area. The pool is heated from October to April.

This is a gay friendly apartment and I welcome everyone from the LGBTI community.

The apartment is located in inner city Redfern. Redfern is known for young professionals and trendy locals and offers funky cafes and pubs while being a 25 minute walk to the city or Sydney University. An excellent mix of restaurants and cafes in Surry Hills is also a short stroll away.

The apartment is a 10 minute walk to Redfern train station, just 1 stop from Central Station, walk into the heart of Sydney in 30 minutes or a bus gets you in 15 minutes. This train station services all lines including Bondi Junction, City Circle and North Shore Lines.

Sightseeing starts here!

If you are driving, there is street parking available. It is normally limited to 2 hours during the day form 8am to 6pm but open outside of these hours. It is quite safe to park your car on the street. There is some overnight visitor parking in the car park but it is not available for more than 24 hours.

Guest Access

Everyone's arrival time varies and I can usually time my work to fit in with your arrival also. I do not have a set check-in or out time and will do my best to accommodate all guests. Just advise of your flight & arrival details giving me time to change my work schedule as needed.

All of my guests are welcomed with a fruit selection, bottled water and chocolates to make you feel at home.

Guests will have full use of the apartment including the kitchen, balcony and laundry facilities. Feel free to go shopping at Woolworths just down the road to stock up on your any food or drink that you can store in the fridge or the pantry.

Guests are given their own security swipe and door key to access the building and apartment as well as the pool.

Interaction with Guests

As guests in my home we can have as much or as little interaction as you wish. I am happy to share a glass of wine or two and have a chat about what to see and how to get around in Sydney or leave you to your own devices. My goal is to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

The Neighborhood

I love living opposite Redfern Park, it is a fantastic view and very relaxing to look at all the people walking their dogs, kids playing, birds chirping in the century old Moreton Bay Figs. There are more and more restaurants opening all the time and some of my favourites are Tapeo, Eat House Diner, First Drop Cafe and the Woolpack Hotel.

The city is a 15 minute bus ride away, you're less than 10 minutes from both Central and Redfern stations, so if your planning day trips to the Blue Mountains or anywhere else, a train ride is a great way to get there. Surry Hills, home to Sydney's bar and restaurant scene is 15 minutes walk and the airport is 15-20 minutes drive away.

The apartment is so conveniently located, it is in a highly sought after apartment complex for both renters and buyers alike. There is street parking if you have a car and Woolworths supermarket is just 50 metres away.

Getting Around

There is a bus stop just a few minutes walk down the road, with 5 different buses into the city, stopping at Circular Quay and other stops along the way. When you get to Circular Quay, you can then catch ferries to Manly, North Sydney, Watsons Bay and several other destinations.

Central and Redfern Stations are both less than 10 minute walk, which will get you onto the entire Sydney rail network.

It is a 25 minute walk to the CBD and 45 minute to Circular Quay.

Other Things to Note

Guests are given their own security swipe and door key to access the building and apartment as well as the pool.

While I am happy to accept new guests to Airbnb with no previous reviews I would kindly ask that you verify a few details ahead of sending a booking request.

If I am opening up my home to you then please have uploaded a recent photograph and verified email or verified other third party web sites from the 'edit profile page' on your Airbnb dashboard. If you are booking with me, please write more about yourself and the reason you're visiting Sydney. I'd like to know who I'm sharing my space with.

As a host, I do not see the details of your passport etc (it is held by Airbnb) it allows me to ensure the person placing the booking will be the person staying.

Thanks for your understanding.

I do smoke but only do so on my balcony.

House Rules

First and foremost, have fun and enjoy your stay in Sydney. I would ask that you treat this home as you would your own, respect the bedroom and belongings.

You will be sharing a beautiful home so please keep the room reasonably tidy and ensure the contents of the room are not damaged due to carelessness.

Please respect my neighbours by entering and exiting the apartment quietly, especially late at night or very early in the morning.

I am a smoker myself and smoking is permitted on the balcony only (ashtray provided). No indoor smoking.

I am fairly easy going, but please no parties or outside visitors in the room, I always want to know who comes into my home.

Please do not eat food in the bedroom.
