We have reduced the nightly rate of our apartment to way below what our friends tell us it is really worth - but we want people in it and experiencing all it has to offer. Get in quick at this price.
Located in an iconic Art Deco building in the heart of Darlinghurst, this one bedroom apartment offers all the luxuries. Recently refurbished and decorated it has everything you require including amazing views to the city skyline. It is within a security block and has a luxuriously appointed queen sized bed, large ensuite bathroom, well stocked kitchen i.e. upright oven and hotplates, microwave, fridge and fully appointed kitchen appliances – (ps I love to cook…and I need the right implements)...Important essentials that will ensure that you will not starve when you first arrive ….dining room table and chairs, lounge, coffee table, book collection and television (with DVD player) and music system. The apartment has unlimited Wifi because we know that you need that – just like we do. Views apparent from every window including views of the opera house and the Harbour Bridge (even from the toilet– no less)
Although we are very proud of our unit and the way it presents, the jewel in the crown of this apartment occurs on the upper common rooftop deck area where there are gas operated barbeques and tables and chairs, a newly renovated pool and surrounding gardens and coin operated washing machines and dryers. All of this in a setting which has breathtaking views of the harbour bridge, the opera house and all that Sydney has to offer.
You have the full run of the apartment during your stay as well as access to the common rooftop deck area via a security key.
Interaction with Guests
We would love to meet and greet you and then stay out of your way - but will be available by phone or email at any time.
Darlinghurst is the hub of the city. It's an amazing little inner city village full of gorgeous restaurants and cute coffee places and wine bars but the best part is that it's close to everything! Darlinghurst is edgy – but we LOVE that edge because it means interesting and different.
You can literally walk anywhere you want in the city within about 25 minutes. The Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Surry Hills, Elizabeth Bay, Potts Point, Paddington, CBD are all within easy walking reach and take a short bus trip to the beautiful Bondi Beach.
It's five min walk to Kings Cross train station. 15-20 min walk to Hyde Park. 5 min walk to a bus (389) that'll take you to Bondi Junction and Bondi beach. It's a great location.
Parking is a nightmare - but you do not need a car when you are here. If you do though there are a number of "GoGet" car-share places right outside the apartment. You do need to pre register for these (overseas licences are accepted). For more information and to register search "GoGet"
Other Things to Note
You will not be disappointed in this unit - no one has been...but there is a 3 night minimum to ensure that we are able to give you the best.
No smoking within the apartment please.
We love pets - but not in this apartment please
Out of respect for our neighbours, we believe this apartment is best suited to no more than two people and we only expect that you would treat our home in the way that you would like us to treat your home. Please note this is not a party place …it is a peaceful sanctuary.
From our arrival to our leaving, Sharon & Mal could not have been better hosts to us.
The apartment was perfect for our short stay in the city and it is superbly located to allow one to experience it to the full.
Everything in the apartment was in place, well stocked (including a few complimentary cold ones!) and in full working order.
A roof terrace BBQ, swimming pool and perfect view of The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge make for a superb bonus.
Finally, a huge personal thank you to Sharon for hospitality over and above the call of duty which allowed us to enjoy our final day without hindrance or pressure.
Audrey & I can highly this city apartment
We were delighted with this apartment. It was exactly as listed and the well stocked kitchen was a bonus. Sharon and Mal were welcoming and helpful. We will definitely want to use this apartment again.
We spent 5 amazing days in sydeny. Although the weather was not always in our favour Sharons and Mals appartment made up for every rain shower we walked into. This beautiful little cozy home in the middle of the vibrant quarter of darlighurst was the perfect end of our australia trip. The appartment is tidy, clean and super comfortable. The view from the roof top pool is simply spectacular. Sharon our most lovely host is prepared for travellers of all kinds and was even so kind to pick us up and bring us to the appartment. Simply amazing. We can recomand this appartment to everybody who likes to experience sydney.
I had a lovely time there. The apartment was great, awesome location and nice building. It felt really homely, which was nice, and was really well appointed with everything I needed. The rooftop pool and BBQ area was amazing, even if the weather was a bit hot to be up there for too long!
We loved every second of our stay at The Darlings, we would both love to return in the future and will highly recommend it to any one visiting Sydney. Staying at the Darlings provided the best of both worlds, in that we were only a short 10/15 minute walk from the city centre and all it's attractions, yet returned home each night to the peaceful suburbs of Darlinghurst. Darlinghurst itself also had a lot to offer in the way of bars and restaurants when a more chilled evening was required. The apartment was very clean, homely and provided all resources needed for a stay in Sydney from kitchen appliances, wifi and television to laundry facilities. The rooftop pool area was just an added bonus to a perfect stay.
We stayed at "The Darlings" for 10 days in January 2015 and can highly recommend both the apartment and our hosts, Sharon and Mal. Communication was prompt and efficient, and the apartment was perfect for our needs. It is close to all the buzz of Darlinghurst, Kings Cross and also walking distance into town/Surry Hills etc. Sharon and Mal have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Everything in the apartment is of high quality and the little touches like pantry supplies so you don't have to rush to the supermarket as soon as you walk in the door, the comfy bed and quality towels just add to the experience. My daughter loved the rof-top pool (amazing views) and the other residents of the apartment complex were really friendly and welcoming. If you like being in the "thick of it", close to great cafes and restaurants and life in all its diverse glory, look no further - The Darlings has it all. Thanks Sharon and Mal!
Sharon and Mal had the perfect apartment for our stay. It was clean light and airy and much more spacious than we expected. The facilities in the flat were brilliant and they had thought of everything from shower gel to suncream tea's, coffees and even a mini bottle if bubbly! The roof top pool area was amazing. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed relaxed mornings and evenings up there. The location of the apt was also perfect for us we strolled into the city from there and the bars and restaurants in the area were brilliant (website hidden)
We are both Sydney born and bred and apparently we are getting older but that is not always what we feel. We are both still running our own businesses so work hard during the week but in down time love sailing, theatre, live music and entertaining. We have a significant number of adult children (phew – all of whom have left home) and remain very engaged in all that offers to us (whether we “always” like it or not!!!! )
We love our primary home on the beach in a little village South of Sydney (about 1.5 hours’ drive – or rail) and relish walking our dogs on the beach every day but also adore getting up to the big smoke and utilising all that offers to us and others. We love travelling and continue to explore places regularly that we have not yet seen together but always try and fit in New York which is our combined favourite city outside our own.
We particularly enjoy our new little apartment in Darlinghurst…and we hope you will too. We have attempted to set up a little “crash pad” filled with love which we feel very comfortable in - which we hope you also appreciate. We have done this in in a wonderful part of our city (which we find edgy but exciting) and so …. Enjoy and welcome to the “Darlings” – we feel confident you will enjoy your stay…that is certainly our intention.
