The Space

This top floor apartment (5th floor, accessible via lift or stairs) with a pleasing vista, 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 loft style as this studio is filled to the brim with character and charm: perfect for those who love original details.

Brilliant for a single or couple as it sleeps two on the chiropractic, comfortable queen bed. The bathroom has original features and a huge bath. We do not have a cot nor extra sleeping facilities for more than two people.

The kitchen is a small galley way, with a full sized fridge, gas stove and oven (no microwave), separate to the main studio area by the original Art Deco painted glass wall.

The bathroom is gloriously original with a huge beautiful deep bath, so if you're a bath person, you will be in heaven after a day of walking around the sites of Sydney.

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. Why pay hotel rates when you can have your own private home, equipped with everything you need for up to 2 people.

Longer stays have already been entered into the Airbnb system - the longer you stay, the bigger the discount!

Darlinghurst has colourful characters and is constantly evolving. Where better to stay than right in the heart of it all?

Guest Access

Guests have access to the wardrobe, under bed storage, under couch storage, full bathroom and 80% of the kitchen. We reserve one 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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

There are many buses and trains all within a close walking distance from our studio.

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 can't rave enough about Angelique's studio apartment. It is fabulous. It's a beautifully decorated art deco space, light filled and spacious for a studio. An amazing atmosphere to stay in. A great building In a great area. The elevator is a time warp... and don't even get me started on the roof top view. Angelique is incredibly easy to deal with and attentive to your needs, ease of stay and rental organisation. I will definitely stay there again. Thanks.

    BEST GUEST! THANK YOU Graeme - always welcome back!

  • Angelique was an ideal hostess. As might be expected there a few glitches which immediately Angelique did whatever was necessary to help resolve them. Moreover - it is a fantastic studio apartment ideally located and close to everything. Thanks. .

    Such a lovely guest - thank you Nicholas.

  • We had a lovely stay at Sky Oasis studio! The space was clean and filled with sunshine! Angelique was easy to contact and helpful. Parking our car was somewhat difficult - but we did find a street which had free unlimited parking (about a 10 min walk away)! One issue i did have with the booking is i felt the cleaning fee seemed to be a lot, given the small space (i have my three bedroom house in Melbourne cleaned for $150). Otherwise, everything was fantastic! Many thanks!

    Response from Angelique:

    Lovely guest, thank you Grace. You must've missed my map that I sent in your welcome package for closest unrestricted parking. It is less than a 2min walk from the property. I send this info to every booking.
    Sadly, Sydney is the most expensive city in Australia (I have friends who live in Melbourne and it's so much cheaper than Sydney!)
    Also, holiday letting cleaning does cost more than a regular cleaner as the times have to match our check in/out times.
    The cost also covers our linen hire/launder, which Airbnb does not allow separate listing for linen hire, unlike other sites we advertise on.

  • The location of Sky Oasis is so perfect that even after living in Sydney for 10 years I felt like I was rediscovering it all over again. Everything you need is literally within a stone's throw of the studio. The heritage building is gorgeous and I'm so glad Angelique has maintained all the original fittings and tile work - it just adds to the experience. Angelique was a brilliant host - so responsive and helpful, I felt welcome even though I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her. I will certainly try to stay again when next in Sydney.

    Absolutely LOVED dealing with Kiriana! An absolute joy to host and thank you for your feedback on the amazing originality of this studio. Authentic features have such a beauty to them!

  • We loved staying in the apartment, it's in a fantastic location with loads of nice places nearby and the apartment itself is lovely. Angelique was a great host and very easy to communicate with. Would wholeheartedly recommend

  • Beautiful authentic art deco apartment in pretty much its original state! Amazing natural light and cool breezes at night. Great views out over the eastern suburbs perched high up on the hill. Great area, with easy access to everywhere we needed to be on foot or by bus. Angelique was really easy to deal with and responded well to all our enquiries. She was really flexible with our timing as our arrival flight was delayed, and had excellent communication. If we return to Sydney would definitely try and stay here again!

    Response from Angelique:

    Such a great guest! Another architect to appreciate the original features! We LOVE that! Thanks for choosing to stay with us.

  • The reservation was canceled 22 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Response from Angelique:

    "There was a date error of one night in my calendar. This guest was advised of this error within 1hr of placing his booking and guest was offered other dates. Unfortunately, the other dates were not suitable and so guest requested I cancel booking in order that guest is given full refund. All was done within the hour of booking being made with airbnb's automated booking system and guest was not inconvenienced in any way."

  • Angelique's studio was even more vibrant, eclectic and comfortable than I was imagining. The space is bright and airy, clean and cozy. Angelique was very flexible with getting me the keys and was so wonderful in checking in to make sure I had everything that I needed, and I really had a wonderful experience in my stay. I would certainly go back and stay in this studio again! The space, comfort and location really can't be beat!

  • Beautiful apartment and fantastic location. Angelique was really helpful and made the stay for my parents very easy. Thanks, highly recommend.

    February 2014
  • We had a great stay! Perfect location for a mini-break without feeling too touristy. Loads of lovely places to eat, particularly Yellow for dinner and Holm for breakfast. Apartment had lots of charm and interesting things to catch the eye.
    Angelique was an extremely considerate host - went above and beyond to ensure that I had gotten the key okay when I absentmindedly left the phone at home on our first explore immediately after we arrived. Thanks Angelique!
