Apartment - Private room · Birriga Road, Bellevue Hill, NSW 2026, Australia

The Space

Fantastic Location and Feel!

Easy walking distance to Bondi beach on one side and Sydney harbour on the other, yet in a green, leafy hideaway with a beautiful view.

Here is your own private, cosy room in a gorgeous, older style, 2 bedroom renovated apartment. Welcome to your Sydney haven.

On the outside, this small Art Deco block of 5 units looks charming, if shabby chic, and inside it's heaven.

Your half-size room is small, but with a double bed and large wardrobe there's more than enough room for you if you're only here for a short time and want an affordable, but nice place to stay near Sydney's waterways with easy access to the city.

Great Atmosphere: Scenic View Over the Golf Course
Everyone who walks into this unit says what a good feel it has. From the serene balcony you look out over the rolling greens of the royal golf course. In a small block of only 5 others this gorgeous unit is in easy walking distance to both Bondi beach and Sydney harbour (please see map below), , located on the fringe of Bellevue Hill shopping centre, minutes to Bondi Junction and, of course, Bondi beach!

* Attractive kitchen with modern appliances
* Open plan kitchen/lounge area looking over the royal golf course
* Internal laundry facilities
* Airy lounge and balcony with beautiful leafy outlook
* Your half-size bedroom is cosy (no desk) but includes a double bed and wardrobe
* Rental includes utilities i.e. electricity + wireless internet if you have your own laptop.
* Due to independent schedules and eating habits we don't generally provide breakfast. A welcome meal is cooked with love for guests who stay longer than one week.

Fully furnished, including all linen, towels, cutlery and crockery.

Stereo, TV & DVD players in the living room, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, fully functional kitchen with appliances.

Portable heaters and fan available on site. This apartment is pleasantly cool in summer. The north facing combined lounge room, kitchen and balcony gets the crisp, morning sun, so it's bright and airy, but not too hot.

Filtered water and 100% green power.

Un-metered street parking (rare for Bondi)

Public Transport Across the Road
It's a short bus journey to Bondi Junction and from there it's a 10 minute train journey in to town.

The international and Domestic airports are only about 20 minutes drive away (longer during traffic peaks), again, all easily accessible by public transport too.

We'll send you maps and full details when we confirm your booking.

Maximum occupancy
1 person. The room can fit two - but best suits one person.

Minimum stay
3 nights

Do you like cats? We are the proud parents of a Himalayan purrer, aka Fluffyhontas. Himalayans are hypoallergenic as Matt is asthmatic. The full wool carpeting in this unit is also the tight, cut and loop style, so that's also asthma friendly.


Amazing Sydney
Sydney's a wonderful place to be any time of the year. There are all sorts of great things to see and do - we've both been living here for over twenty years and are more than happy to share some of Sydney's secrets with you.

Highlights of our area include Birrigas cafe a few steps away - great for coffee, home-made food and emergency groceries. Just blocks away we also recommend Speakeasy bar and restaurant, Mamasan Saki Bar, Gertrude & Alice Cafe Bookstore, or coffee at the Bondi Pavillion in between swims on the beach! ....or just a pit stop before you head off on the coastal walk to Bronte Beach via Tamarama Beach.

Harbourside it's great to catch the Rose Bay Ferry to Circular Quay where you'll find the Sydney Opera House, MCA galleries and The Rocks. Also in the bay you'll find a fantastic little cafe right on the water...We'll tell you where! (No, it's not the upmarket Catalinas)

Please note that the nightly rate goes up on Friday and Saturday nights.

Weekly and monthly rates are available.

We have a $300 refundable security damage deposit - sorry, that's just to deter people who don't care. Of course, no damage = full refund.

(Please read the house rules)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wounderful 4 Week stay. Bronwin, Matt and Fluffyhontas made me feel like home.
    They gave me a lot of tips what I can visit and do in Sydney and its surroundings.
    I was very pleased and I would stay there again.
    Thanks again Bronwin and Matt!

  • Bronwin & Matt are a very nice couple with a lovely and cute cat Fluffy. They made me feel very comfortable and gave me many useful tips what to do in Bondi and Sydney. Their apartment is a nice place. It is clean, light and made me easily feel like home. The weather during my stay was hot but the apartment was always nice and cool. It is easily reachable by public transport as the next bus stop is just across the street. Bondi beach is a 15 minute walk away. I highly recommend this place and would always book it again if I come back to Sydney.

  • Bronwin and Matt are a lovely couple to live with. From the moment I moved in I felt welcome. I stayed with them approximately 6 weeks. My time in Sydney was made better coming home to a relaxing environment. I always felt like Bron and Matt respected my privacy and also made me feel at home. Fluffy, their beloved cat was timid at first but became a playful entertaining cat once we warmed up to each other. The view from the balcony is very nice especially when you wake up early enough to see the sunrise. The room is cozy and appears small at first but even with all my things I was able to fit comfortably with the storage space. I found the bed quite comfortable and I had many good sleeps with it being so quiet. During my first week I was made a delicious vegetarian welcoming dinner which was very thoughtful considering my dietary requirements. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing getaway. Thank you Bronwin and Matt for a wonderful stay!

  • Matt & Bronwin were awesome hosts, made me feel very welcome. The place is very comfortable, all decked out, great spot close to the beach and bus stop. Highly recommend!

    October 2012
  • Bronwin and Matt are lovely, quiet area, bed was extremely comfortable, Fluffy the cat added to the experience, central location (15min by bus to junction and 10 min walk to the beach) and a great coffee shop down the street!!

    October 2012
  • To stay at Bronwin and Matt's was great, it has everything a visitor need. Cosy room, comfy bed, new bathroom, excellent host, good kitchen, nice pet.
    I was lucky to find a place like this to stay!

    October 2012
  • It was a real pleasure to stay in this peaceful house with these lovely and interesting people. The location is good for people who want to go to the beach, and it's not too hard to go to the city. I will miss them and their funny cat!

  • Bronwin and Matt were my saving grace arriving from South Africa to Sydney. They were welcoming and were wonderful host. Their home was cosy and very convenient for me as needed a home environment coming from such a remote place.

    They have a beautiful cat named fluffy who is a gem, and delicious to watch running around and being excited. I would be happy to stay with them again if I was not a local any more.

    July 2012
  • Bronwin and Matt are great hosts. I really enjoyed my time while living with them. They always tried to make me feel at home, which was really nice. I can totally recommend to stay with Bronwin and Matt.

    May 2012
  • Bronwin and Matt have great place. Very modern and nicely furnitured. Fluffy, the little kitten, is very adoreable and always looking for someone to play. The room itself is not very big but has very good storage options. Location wise, I really liked the proximity to Bondi Beach. Bronwin and Matt are great people who love to share tips for Sydney and their own experiences.

Happy, professional couple who are both writing novels and when they're not doing that.... Bronwin is a PhD student and teacher Matt is a disability carer and exhibits his own photography. Joined also by Fluffyhontas, a much loved Himalayan kitten (a hypoallergenic breed) We both love the arts, music, films, theatre, philosophy, reading and writing, computer games (Bronwin's studying them) friends, travel, fun, meditation, morning beach walks and generally healthy, eco-friendly living (without being obsessive about it). We're open-minded, grounded and happy.
