I live in Redfern at the well known converted factory The Watertower. The apartment is fabulous and right on Redfern station with spectacular views over Sydney city. This is a smoke free home. There is wifi, air-conditioning if needed, bed linen, towels, full kitchen facility. The building has a swimming pool as well and off street parking.
You will have your own large bedroom and bathroom. Everything is beautifully appointed with crisp white linen and towels. You don't even have to bring your own shampoo.
I'm generally out all day, nevertheless am available any time if you need a ride somewhere, pick up or drop off to the nearby airport.
There is a wonderful pattiserie at the corner of the block that serves great coffee and mouthwatering baked goods.
The CBD is minutes away by train, as is Bondi. This is your five star alternative to a hotel. You won't get your bed made on a daily basis as your room is your sanctuary whilst you are here and your privacy and independence are guaranteed. You are nevertheless provided with much more than a hotel can offer, including free pick up and drop off to the airport (if I'm available) as well as a wonderful living environment.
You will be sharing just with me and as I work most days fairly much have the place to yourself.
Sorry only one person at a time.

I had a fantastic stay at Sandra's place in Redfern. She very kindly picked me up from the airport and showed me around the apartment.
The apartment was stunning and conveniently right next to Redfern station.
The room was very comfortable and I was free to use anything in the well equipped kitchen.
The living area was a lovely area to relax in when I arrived back at night.
I would definitely stay here again!
Everything was perfect. Sandra was a great host and the apartment is beautiful. It's right next to the train so I was able to travel around very easily. I would highly recommend staying here!!
Both Sandra and her apartment are wonderful. We didn't cross paths often due to our opposing schedules but whenever we did she always stopped for a chat. The apartment is gorgeous, exactly like in the photos, extremely comfortable, super clean, and well equipped. The location is also really good - right by the train station and even a short enough walk to the CBD. I can't recommend Sandra highly enough, she's a great host with a beautiful place.
What a wonderful place! I simply loved this apartment. It's really spacious, beautifully decorated, quite and has great views. I found it a perfect place to relax and collect myself after traveling in Thailand. It's also perfectly located to explore Sydney - with Redfern Railway Station right there.
Sandra is a lovely person and very considerate host. She wasn't there when I arrived, but a really nice friend of hers met me and showed me around. I met Sandra later though and we had a nice chat - and she even dropped me off at the airport when I left.
I would love to come back and stay there again one day.
Peter (who was looking after the place for Sandra) was a great host. Made me feel very welcome and we shared a few meals too. I also just moved to Australia and he helped me move all my stuff to my new home - what a ledge! Thank you!
The apartment is fantastic too - great views, right next to Redfern station and has everything you need to be a home from home.
Unfortunately Sandra was not around , However I was still able to stay at her appt and her good friend Peter stayed with me.
Peter was a charming man, he pointed me in the right direction and made me a delightful breakfast to set me for the day.
Sandra's appt is everything and more. Very spacious, clean and great views of the city. The location was perfect only 3 stops on the train into the centre of the city. Return ticket only cost 15 Dollars return , you can buy a weekly ticket that is more cost effective.
I have throughly enjoyed my stay and would return the future.
5 star accomadation with a fraction of the price.
My friend and I had a great stay in Sandra's loft. We didn't get a chance to meet Sandra (Peter was looking over the loft during that time and was very friendly and helpful). As other reviewers noted, the space is very beautiful and "lofty," and the kitchen is stocked with gourmet treats. The location in Redfern is really great too, very close to the CBD by train but still quiet.

I'm a photographer living in Sydney. My studio is ten minutes down the road from the apartment where I spend most of my time. I have travelled the world extensively and have kept a blog on this called The World's Best Yoga Centres. As the title indicates my travels have included going to yoga centres all over the world. This has been an amazing experience so far.
I love portrait photography, as it is one way of getting to know a person and allow them to project their dreams, hopes and fears through simply being photographed. It is a very intimate experience.
