About this listing
Fabulous location for travellers and business people working in the CBD of Sydney or North Sydney. Transport very close with even the ability to walk either to the city or North Sydney.
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?
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.
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.
No smoking and please be careful placing glasses on furniture surfaces - there are plenty of coasters for such use.
Breakfast prepared for you and served in the rain forest garden, weather permitting - homemade granola, a variety of breads and fruit along with tea or coffee and juice. All very pleasant indeed.
Judy was waiting for me and made me feel very welcome. My bedroom was snug and clean and I slept very well both nights.
She made me tea, delivered the best muesli I've ever eaten outside in this divine little secluded garden and was full of joy and kind words.
The location is brilliant and did some big walks around the harbour.
I would happily come back many times.
It is a great little flat with a great host.
Thanks Judy :))
Judy is a generous, gracious host who took the time to show me around her gorgeous neighbourhood and introduce me to a good friend of hers. They joined me for closing night of a friend's show at Ensemble Theatre, which is located a short walk away from Judy's place. I enjoyed Judy's excellent company and cosy accommodation, conveniently located, close to the theatre, transport, shops & cafes. Her private rainforest deck is lovely and her homemade granola is the best! Highly recommended, particularly if you enjoy an intelligent conversation with your host. I'll definitely be back.
Judy is a wonderful hostess. She made me feel very welcome, with delightful conversation and hospitality. The location was very pleasant, room was lovely and only minutes walk away from everything. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and hope to visit again.
What a great host Judy is. considerate helpful and generous, and Enjoyable company. I was there on business and the location to North Sydney was perfect. Loved the rainforest deck with the best gronilla ever tasted !
The description and pictures of Judy's place were very accurate - it is as lovely and cosy as it looks. The garden was an ideal place to chill out at the end of the day, and the flat is perfectly situated, only a few minutes walk from the harbour bridge, and ferry stops, and easy to get to Milson's Point train station, even with luggage. I loved staying there and enjoyed chatting to Judy about our past lives! The breakfasts were excellent, and Izzy, the cat, a delightful companion. All in all very good and I am already planning a return trip.
Judy hat mich am Bahnhof abgeholt und mich sofort als "Teil der Familie" betrachtet. Sie hat mir mit nützlichen Tipps geholfen und mir mit gutem, gesundem Essen und toller Gastfreundschaft einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt beschert - unbedingt empfehlenswert!
I had a fabulous time staying with Judy. The area was really beautiful. The train and shops were only a short walk away. Judy was super helpful and always nice to chat with. I highly recommend staying here. Izzy the cat also gets a mention, so friendly and cute ;-)

About the Host, Judy
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.
