Rainforest garden apartment - deck

Apartment - Private room · a Hipwood St, Kirribilli, NSW 2061, Australia

The Space

Charming apartment with one room to rent, 5 minutes walk to Kirribilli Village with great choice of restaurants, cafes, small supermarkets and boutique shops. 5 minutes walk to Sydney Harbour Bridge, a ferry to the city or train to the city or suburbs. 2 minutes walk to a bus into the city, harbour foreshore and the Ensemble Theatre.

Kirribilli is across the harbour from the CBD, so you can easily avail yourself of the transport or get some exercise walking across the bridge - spectacular. There are beautiful harbour foreshore walks from here too in different directions

There is a charming single room for one person with a bathroom to share. Wifi is available, along with landline to Australian phone numbers. Digital TV is there for your enjoyment but with local entertainment being abundant, I doubt it will be necessary.

How often can you enjoy a rainforest garden so close to the CBD of a fabulous city?

The Neighborhood

Kirribilli is a wonderful neighbourhood with a delightful village feel - great coffee shops, with a terrific choice of local restaurants and bars - seafood, Asian, modern Australian, burgers - all very close to the harbour.

Getting around

For the immediate village walking is the best mode of transport, but for ventures further afield you can walk, ferry, train or bus it and then the airport is only 15 minutes by car and 30 minutes by train.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed with Judy in Sydney recently and found her to be very friendly and accommodating. Her room is quite small and the bed is only a single but it is comfortable. The house is in a great location for transport on train and ferry and I found a great cafe at Milsons point with some great food and coffee!
    Judy is a lovely person who I hardly saw whilst I was there but she is well travelled and has a nice home.

  • Judy Davis is a very hospitable host. She went out of her way to make me comfortable and get me set up. I want a recipe for the granola with whole cashews and macadamia nuts. I felt like I was coming home each day.

  • Convenient location, beautiful apartment, stylish and bright, and of course, a wonderful host - lots of advice and definitely up for an interesting chat about the world. Enjoy your stay here at Judy's apartment!

  • I was lucky enough to book Judy's very nice room for ten nights. It was the perfect choice! Judy is a delightful person and immediately made me feel comfortable about being a guest in her beautiful home.

    Location, location, location! Kirribilli is the perfect location for seeing Sydney. The ferry is a ten minute walk and the train station and Sydney Bridge ten minutes in the other direction. Kirribilli village is just about as good as it gets in Sydney for restaurant and coffee houses. Lots of wonderful places to walk along the shoreline with spectacular views of the Opera House, the Harbor Bridge and downtown Sydney.

    Sydney is a magic place and staying at Judy's made the stay a perfect experience.

  • Lovely gardens. Exceptionally quiet much of the time. Very clean despite the antiques. Loads of character! Felt quite at home. Bedding was clean and crisp like a five star ;)
    Judy was great, even offered for me to join her at the beach. Wonderful granola! Highly recommend.

  • Judy is a gracious and welcoming host. She included me when her friends visited and treated me as a friend. She is a pleasure to stay with.
    The apartment is exactly as described - clean, comfortable and very central. It's just a few minutes walk to the railway station and then only two stops to the city, or it's very easy to walk over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Rocks or the city. I even walked back home across the bridge from the city after dark.
    Everything about my visit was easy, comfortable and fun. I can highly recommend Judy and her beautiful apartment for your stay in Sydney. I'll certainly be back.

  • I highly recommend staying at Judy's lovely home in Kirribilli. She is a lovely person and I coudnt have felt more at home. She gives you the space to get on with what you're doing, but is lovely to have a yarn with... such an intersting life she has led to date.

    Thanks so much for having me Judy. I will definately stay with you again, and you are welcome at mine any time as we have a spare room and lots of interesting cultural things happening in the Berra.

I am a single woman, who works part time. I have lived and travelled extensively - San Francisco, Tokyo, Saigon and outside of London when I was a child. Love to travel and meet new people, particularly those from other places. Have travelled in Asia, and a bit in Europe. Love Italy and la dolce vita. Have seen quite a bit of the US (my dad took me to New York for my 14th birthday!!) and been on safari in Africa but not made it to other continents yet. Can't imagine life without friends, good spicy food and the prospect of another travel adventure. Have backpacked, and travelled in style, kayaked down rivers and even hiked the Kokoda Track sharing a backpack with my boyfriend of the time. Now prefer softer options along with a good bottle of wine, delicious food of the region wherever, classical music or some great rock. Age is a state of mind rather than the years lived, and it is good to be able to look backwards and forwards.
