Because the apartment is cut into the natural sandstone rock - there is generally a different climate - cooler than outside in summer & warmer than outside in winter. It can be a humid in the apartment after rain however we have two dehumidifiers if the humidity becomes uncomfortable.
The natural sandstone is designed to allow the ground water that naturally comes out of the rock run down over the face of the sandstone and drains to a catchment drain where it is pumped away to the outside. A pump system is also used to remove the shower, toilet, kitchen & washing machine waste water to the outside drainage and system.
In times of heavy rain the apartment can be humid and may not be the best choice for those who suffer from Asthma.

Other Things to Note
It's a wonderful area to walk and enjoy the beach and coastline
Please enjoy & have fun in the sandstone apartment, at the local beaches ,coastal area & ocean that are available to you.
It was our second stay at the sandstone apartment and we absolutely enjoyed it. John is such a relaxed and helpful person that it was our pleasure meeting him. It felt like coming home after we spent the whole days outside.
We'll surely come back!
The Sandstone Apartment was exactly what we needed. It was very child friendly. John went out of his way to make us feel welcome and even provided toys for our kids to play with. Location was great too, right opposite bus stop and within walking distance from beaches and shops. Facilities were clean and very well maintained. Thank you for making us feel at home
There are very few people in this world that have a naturally generous spirit and John is one of those people which make him, and his family, extremely welcoming and wonderful hosts. His family are all too gracious to connect and help where needed. I highly recommend this property for its hosts, location and for the fun space it is for a family and in particular children to enjoy! Thanks John & Mitch! We look forward to returning soon.
Great place in a great location.
We loved our time in Bondi staying here. About five minutes or so down to the main beach and local shops and cafés.
The bathroom gets a bit wet with the open shower but that didn't bother us too much.
Great place to stay, would definitely stay again.
Absolutely the best place to stay! Jon an Mitch were absolutely great hosts. Helped us out with all of our questions and made sure that we had a great time. The Sandstone apartment was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. extremely short walk to numerous beaches makes it a perfect location. Cafes across the street were amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better place!

We enjoy meeting people, being outdoors having fun in and around the ocean.
Our motto is " take time to look for the a positive in everything that happens in life"
Mitch and I live in the house upstairs above the sandstone apartment. My daughter Gemma & son Riley sometimes stay with us on university and school holidays if the beach is nice.
