Decidedly cool. Chill out in this beautiful Darlinghurst Studio, right in the heart of the best cafe's and restaurants!
Victoria St cafe's and back street art galleries, chic eateries on Stanley St & more...
This top floor apartment (5th floor, accessible via lift or stairs) with a stunning vista, and BRAND NEW ART DECO CEILING FAN has original heritage listed art deco features in a space that is full of light all day long. Don't stay here if you don't love character with an oldy worldy Parisian feel as this studio is filled to the brim with character and charm: really for those who love original details.
Brilliant for a single or couple as it sleeps two on the chiropractic, comfortable queen bed. We do not have a cot nor extra sleeping facilities for more than two people.
The kitchen is a small galley way space, with a full sized fridge, gas stove and oven (no microwave), separated to the main studio area by the original Art Deco painted glass wall.
The kitchen and bathroom both have stunning original tiles with a huge beautiful deep bath, so if you're a bath person, you will be in heaven, enjoying the lovely cross breeze (no AC but none needed!) after a day of walking around the sites of Sydney.
Darlinghurst is a destination for Sydney's best restaurants and bars, so you will hear the occasional passerby however this building is on a cul-de-sac, so is one of the quieter streets in the area. People are often surprised at how quiet such an inner city area can be, especially as we are on the top floor. If you book here, you are booking a city location so it won't be quiet all the time :-)
Studio has internet wifi and laundry facilities on the top floor. The roof top also has a fantastic view of the Harbour Bridge and Domain Park. Why pay hotel rates when you can have your own private home, equipped with everything you need for 2 people.
Longer stay discounts have already been entered into the Airbnb system - the longer you stay, the bigger the discount! Play around with the dates and you will find the price drops as you increase your dates.
Darlinghurst has colourful characters and is constantly evolving. Where better to stay than right in the heart of it all with the best restaurants that Sydney has to offer - not to mention the original Messina Icecream Shop!
Please do not ask to view the property prior to booking. It is impossible as Airbnb does not allow us to exchange contact details until bookings are confirmed.
Guests have access to a small original Art Deco wardrobe, under bed storage perfect for suitcases, the three ottomans also have storage, use of bathroom and 80% of the kitchen. We reserve one kitchen cupboard and one trunk, these are the only areas that are locked.
Interaction with Guests
We like to know when guests have settled in, so that we know guests have their keys and all is as expected. We also keep this in our rental agreement as we need to know if anything is not working or broken upon arrival so we can fix and replace items. Sometimes it is just a matter of usage instructions and rather than guests tell us at the end of their stay that items weren't working we would prefer to know so that we can send instructions if there is any issue.
This leafy inner city suburb offers stunning residential streetscape. A pocket of pulsating options, the streets come alive at night in this most convenient of locations in Sydney.
Darlinghurst is a very safe inner city suburb. The closest train station, Kings Cross, is sometimes sketchy, but like all blue light areas, there is a high police patrol, so we feel very safe there. Darlinghurst is the next suburb and has a cafe and restaurant vibe, so it's very different to Kings Cross. Darlinghurst has all the best attractions and is walking distance to CBD, the harbour and Oxford Street shopping.
There are many buses and trains all within a close walking distance from our studio. Our street has a 99% walking score! You can walk anywhere to Sydney's biggest attractions and just a bus to beaches such as Bondi Beach :-)
Other Things to Note
Rates are seasonal and change throughout the year. To find the rates and date availability, please go to our home page and click your dates on the top right hand corner. This will also provide rates for dates selected.
The studio does not have AC. Installing AC in this studio would be in vain as the studio does not need extra cooling. The studio is on the top floor and has a wonderful cross breeze that all have loved and enjoyed. It also faces east so only gets the morning sun, not the hot afternoon western sun, were it on the other side of the building it would be a different story. The studio has a large fan (see pictures) if extra cooling is required, but beyond the fan, AC is not needed at all.

I had a great week in Angelique's gorgeous apartment. It's just as the pictures show: clean, bright and airy with plenty of character. It has lots of space: I had some friends over one evening and it never felt cramped. The apartment had everything I needed, and I was especially thrilled to see a hairdryer in the bathroom when I arrived! It was quiet at night, and the area is super – very trendy with lots of places to eat and drink nearby. (FYI: you're also one of Baz Luhrmann's neighbours!) It's about a 40-minute walk to Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, and a 5-minute walk to Oxford St, where you can get a bus to pretty much anywhere. While I never met Angelique, she was very helpful over email, and I guess it says more that I didn't need to contact her once I arrived. All in all, this has been one of my favourite Airbnb experiences, and I really hope to stay here again.
Enjoyed our stay very much. Owner was very accessible and prompt to reply. Great little studio apartment in a lovely older style building. Clean and everything we needed for a week long stay. Close to great food and coffee. We didn't have a car but was only a 5 - 10 minute walk to Kings Cross Station and buses close by. Nice places to walk as well. Only down side was it was a bit noisy but this is life in the city, I guess.
I booked this airbnb on behalf of my parents for a very last minute trip to Sydney, Angelique was most helpful and easy to get in contact with. My parents enjoyed the old building and lift, and thought the location was great as they could walk to all the main sights. They loved the studio, although it is very small. Many thanks!
I had a wonderful stay in Darlinghurst studio. The location is simply perfect for exploring Sydney's tourist attractions but even more importantly, the street life and people of this old neighborhood. It holds many fabulous features. I enjoyed every breakfast out in the 'breakfast capital of the world', and took a morning run around Rushcutters Bay Park to experience some of the real gems of the city. After 24 years since my last visit, I fell in love with this place all over again.
Darlinghurst studio is a small part of the old Art Deco Sydney in a developing city. This little space is filled with character and comes with an authentic Sydney feeling.
Angelique was a tentative host with a 'can do' attitude. I never met her in person but she armed me beforehand with a massive welcoming package, a lot of advice, and lightning speed response to any questions. I arrived late, and Angelique had a hassles key pickup sorted for me.
During my stay, there was an incident of water supply interrupted for 24h due to a pipe burst caused by a thunderstorm. Angelique was quick in taking action and keeping me up to date of the developments with the repairs.
We spent six days at Angeliques beautiful and bright studio and we can truly recommend it to any one looking for a perfectly located in Sydney's best area. We had a few problems around the booking, but Angelique solved it without trouble. We highly recommend staying at Angelique's place :)
Beautiful little place in an excellent location. The view from the roof is great, and the apartment has everything you need. Angelique is quick and attentive. There are some great food, drinks and coffee spots around the place - you'll have a great time.
Lovely atmospheric small apartment in a great area. Clean and comfortable with great views especially from the roof. Overall we loved staying there but there are a few negatives: the room is next to the lift mechanism which is really noisy (yes, it calms down late but if you want an early night, too bad); there can also be a far amount of noise from the street; there is not much storage, so expect to live out of your suitcases; many of the features are original so worn (not that we found that to be a problem - indeed it's part of the charm) and there is no air conditioning (but there are 4 windows and being high, it catches the wind). Overall we loved it and you should too if you are aware of the negatives in advance. Angelique, by the way, is really responsive and helpful.
Sorry to hear that the lift was a negative. It has never been an issue for us at all. It sounds like a distant clink. I would say most guests are not bothered. For Darlinghurst this area is VERY quiet. We have 3 ottomans, under bed and a wardrobe, so I guess it depends on how much you travel with. The studio definitely does not need AC, the airflow is brilliant. We also just installed a gorgeous ceiling fan!
