The Space

Welcome to Bondi!

Much cheaper than a hotel room and twice as nice with quality linens and a full kitchen this quality studio unit is located in a recently updated security building and is the perfect Bondi Beach apartment.

Apartment has a brand new mattress and bed, sofa and a full size bathroom and kitchen with hotplates, microwave, kettle and toaster.

The bathroom has both a bath and shower facilities and is freshly painted. All the utensils and crockery you need to cook are supplied if you choose to eat in.

The street has trendy bars, a pizza place, a grocery store, video store, fruit store, ATM, internet cafe and several other great restaurants everything you need is close by.

Super easy access to 24 hour buses running from just 2 blocks away and express buses to Bondi Junction just metres away on the same block!

Past guests always comment on just how close the beach is and how this apartment is just great for their stay in Sydney. Plenty of great reviews on our trip advisor listing - just ask!

  • Wonderful apartment, great location! Cathy is amazing, friendly and flexible. Highly recommended! Thanks for a fabulous stay xx

  • Great accommodation, we had the best time so close to the beach in this cosy and very nice apartment!

  • The studio is a full time rental unit (rather than a personal residence), and we learned that Cathy rents multiple units in the same building and other nearby locations via her website (website hidden). This wasn't a negative for us, but the apartment doesn't have the same personal touch as most airbnb properties we've stayed in. But if you want to be in Bondi, the location of this unit can't be beat - only two blocks from the beach! We were, however, disappointed to learn that it is located directly above an auto repair shop which gets quite noisy and woke us up daily at 8am. It was pretty warm during our visit (mid-March), so we needed to sleep with the window open as there was no air conditioning. An overhead fan made the heat bearable, but in the peak of summer it might be an issue for some guests. The bathroom was somewhat old and could have used a new shower curtain, but overall the studio met our expectations and we were happy with our stay based on the great location and value for the money. We also appreciated that Cathy was able to accommodate an early check-in time for us since our flight got into Sydney in the morning.

  • I rented this apartment out for my Dad for his 2 week stay in Sydney. He had a wonderful time here, the location is excellent! Close to the beach and lots of great cafes and restaurants. Would highly recommend a stay in this lovely unit.

  • Cathy was a great host. The apartment is perfect and just what we were looking for! Its a mins walk to Bondi beach and close to the city as well so could not be a better location for exploring the city - I will be back for sure!

    Cathy was very accommodating and was very flexible with check in and out which made life much easier with regards my flights so could not of asked for more. Thanks for having us :-)

  • I wish someone had mentioned a few things before I showed up so here goes: 1) there is a fairly industrious car repair shop located right next door and they start work early! 2) The building and the unit is old and dirty. 3) Summer guests: the unit is very small and there is no cross ventilation so you will want to get out early and come home once it's cool. Other than that, Cathy seems nice and sweet but I'm not sure she has been in this apartment as she seems to manage a bunch of places.

    Response from Cathy:

    Unfortunately I had a bad experience with this guest. He decided that he wanted to leave early based on questionable grounds "too hot" (when it was cold and rainy) and "too loud" (when the business next door was closed). Bondi (email hidden)ly and dynamic village and it can be a noisy place sometimes - not sure what the expectation was. I think he just didn't like all the rain we had this week.

    I was accused unfairly of things by this person and he left the apartment very dirty.

    Best to read my feedbacks in their totality (at the time of writing this he has none) and make up your own mind.

    Highly not recommended as a guest unfortunately.

  • Pros: Cathy is really flexible and responded to our E-mails really fast.
    The apartment was really clean and you find everything you need.
    The location of the accommodation is great, right above on one of the best restaurants in Bondi and it is literally 5 Minutes walk from everything.

    Cons:
    little load, little small, no aircon

  • The apartment was in a great location and was really clean. The bed would not suit someone who had a bad back.

    Response from Cathy:

    Thanks Aoife for the feedback, glad to know you liked the apartment! Future guests will be happy to know we have changed the sleeping arrangements and now feature a separate bed and sofa. The bed has a high quality mattress and recent reports are it is wonderfully comfortable!
