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.
Breakfast foods are provided , as long as you are happy to cook it yourself. 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 can definitely recommend staying at Sandra's while in Sydney. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and very clean. The location is fantastic (by train less then 15 mins to Circular Quay and in just over 5 mins to Newtown - and that's door to door). Sandra is a very organised, pleasant and generous host.
I had a perfect stay in Sandras appartment. It is very convenient located, has a spacious and clean gast room with an own bathroom. You will find everything in the appartment you could wish for. Sandra is a great and considerate host, and I highly recommend to stay with her.
Sandra is a wonderful, simpatico host. The loft was a lovely oasis to return to after long, busy days. I particularly loved winding down with a cuppa of loose leaf herbal tea enjoying the urban train station landscape below through the huge windows. Very convenient Redfern location with with everything within walking distance and train at door step. Loved that a bicycle was also available to use. Will certainly book again.
I had a great stay at Sandra's. Perfect location right near Redfern station. Well equipped kitchen and lovely styled loft apartment. Sandra is really lovely.
I would definitely come back again. Thanks Sandra :)
I had the privilege of residing chez Sandra for 8 nights over the week of Sydney Mardi Gras festivities.
Her immaculately appointed loft is situated in an ideal location. A hip neighbourhood close to the centre of town, with train transit access directly outside your door. Central, yet a solace of quiet serenity at night. This was most appreciated after the long days of dancing!
Like her home, Sandra is an equally lovely, approachable and calm individual. From the minute I arrived Sandra went above and beyond to ensure my stay was a fantastic one. I was overwhelmed with her kind and generous spirit. Introducing me to the building manager (who helped to arrange party tickets and activities), accommodating an additional guest over the weekend, and inviting me to extend my stay an extra night are some examples of the extreme efforts she made to ensure my time in Sydney was a memorable and unforgettable joy!
My only concern is that Sandra, in realizing she provides such amazing accommodations may start charging double her rate, making it unaffordable for me to return at first opportunity!
I stayed with her, then left to go to Melbourne and came back :) Her place is just amazing. When Sandra is around she treats you like family. At no point I felt like I couldn't use anything or would disturb her in any way. She and her apartment contributed A LOT to my wonderful and amazing time in Sydney. Whenever I go back I will go there!!!
it's been a very enjoyable stay at sandra's place. she is a very lovely woman and her place was great. everything is very tasteful and clean. i had my own bathroom and there is a pool in the house. i was very impressed how quiet it was for a city (email hidden)ere is NO traffic noise. amazing. sandra is close to redfern train station and even from there it was hardly any noise and it was not disturbing at all. the train station makes it very easy accessable. sandra even gave me a lift to and from the airport (which she does when she has time) which was very helpful for me. definetly can recommend a stay with her.
Sandra was at the apartment at the agreed time to receive me to hand over the keys and a quick introduction to her apartment. The apartment was everything that she described on her page and I had a very good stay there. It is very conveniently located, easy access to transport, very clean and a very homely feel. Everything that a transient visitor would require including amenities are provided. Thank you Sandra for opening your home.
Sandra — thank you so much for having me stay in your wonderful apartment.
Sydney accommodation in general is surprisingly expensive so I was happy to find a competitively priced, comfortable and beautiful spot, just a 10-20 minute stroll from some fantastic neighborhoods.
I should also note that Sandra is a friendly and informative host, very willing to chat and offer advice on local knowledge.
I highly recommend this accommodation. :)
"Everything Very Positive", is how I would sum up my experience of staying at Sandra's place.
About the host first, Sandra is a most charming and extremely caring host. She is absolutely unassuming and continuously goes out of her way to make things more comfortable for you. She is willing to answer all questions promptly and provide any help that you ask for. While she is there to help you all the time, she does not interfere in your life and leaves you totally independent
The apartment itself is very well appointed. It is peaceful, large, airy, well lighted and very clean. The place is very tastefully done-up, All amenities including kitchen, washing machine, hair dryer etc are available to you. There is even a swimming pool available in the complex.
The location couldn't have been better. Very close to downtown Sydney, next door to a Rail Station, in the vicinity of a good market and uncountable number of eateries. Even a Police Station is nearby, even though you won't need it.
My only complaint about my stay is that I did not have enough time for this stay. If I had more than three days to spend, I would have been happier.
I would most happily recommend this place to any traveler. Thanks Sandra, for everything!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
