About This Listing
A short stroll to world famous Bondi Beach. We even timed it! It is only 200metres to the Beach and local village shops.
This property has a peaceful private backyard on title for exclusive use, which is a very rare commodity at Bondi Beach.
Entire home. Not shared.
This property is a beautiful, tranquil home, fully furnished with style. It has a peaceful, private backyard, on title, for exclusive use. Raw artwork and appeal will leave you feeling like you are part of this creative beach house space.
Don't stay here if you don't love timeless, classic, Bondi Beach character that is filled to the brim with style, personality and charm!
With 2 good sized bedrooms, plus the main bedroom has leafy outlook sunroom office. A large wardrobe in each room. The 2nd bedroom king bed can be separated into twin beds (2x single beds) for single sleepers or children and the master bedroom has one comfortable queen bed.
Open plan living, with separate kitchen (gas stove/oven, no microwave), separate dining and living areas, with beautiful cedar wooden bi-fold doors bring the outdoors in that lead out to the large deck, overlooking the shaded garden.
The bathroom is 4 piece with a bath and shower of classic design.
There is an internal laundry cupboard with a washing machine and dryer.
The property is built on solid rock and has a natural air flow, with shading trees creating a very cool space in Summer months. This is eco cooling at its best so does not require any AC, installing AC would be in vain as the breeze and rock foundation keep this home very cool in Summer. We have run it as a holiday rental for over six years and not had any feedback about AC being required.
Winter provides a warm and cosy apartment, with gas heating, like a fireplace. With the northerly aspect, and deciduous trees that open up the deck to the sun, the Winter months provide sunshine on the deck and through the bi-fold doors. It's perfectly built for efficient heating as cooling.
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.
Prices for Bondi Beach are variable throughout the year, as Bondi Beach is a Summer Seasonal hotspot, with Christmas and NYE being the most sought after. Please use the dates enquiry to check our variable prices.
Guests have access to a large wardrobe in each bedroom, all bookshelves, full bathroom and 90% of the kitchen. We reserve one kitchen cupboard, one wardrobe 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.
Bondi Beach has become world famous for the fun lifestyle, creative creatures who live there, the restaurants and cafe's; and all within a 15min drive to the city.
Bondi Beach is a densely populated suburb of Sydney, you will hear people having fun and enjoying life as all the buildings in this area are very close. People live at Bondi Beach to go out and socialise. This is a party town. If you're after something quieter, it might be wise not to look at staying in Bondi.
In saying that, this property is on one of the best streets of Bondi as it is only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and the village, but far enough away as to avoid almost all of the really noisy main beach traffic and party goers.
There are buses that go to Bondi Junction, which links with trains to anywhere in Sydney.
Taxi's are quick and easy way to get in and out of the beach area. If you need a shuttle service to/from the airport, (website hidden) is your answer.

The house was amazing, my friend and I had a lovely stay here for our weekend in Sydney. The house is in a great location, walking distance from the beach and shops. Angelique was incredible, very organised and made the stay run smoothly. She provided us with some local food options and ensured we arrived safely. Would highly recommend!
Angelique was very welcoming and attentive to our needs. Her responses to our questions were swift, so any small concerns were addressed quickly.
We had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the neighbourhood. A great stay.
Nicely equipped flat in a perfect location and beautiful neighbourhood. Also very good per information. We enjoyed our stay, however, on the last day, we found cockroaches in the kitchen, and also there is some renovating ongoing in the flat upstairs.
This is a garden apartment and unfortunately cockroaches are not uncommon in Bondi or Sydney. We counter this by doing pest controls regularly. There is no renovation in the building, but maybe someone was putting up a picture? I'm not sure but I do know there are no renovation works in the building at all.
Host was very good at responding to emails and making sure we arrived. Great neighbourhood, close to the beach and restaurants, although parking turned out to cause a bit of trouble. House is very spacious and has a beautiful back yard. However, do to it being an older place the noise traveled. Overall, a pleasant stay.
We had a great stay at the apartment. Location was perfect, close enough to the action but quiet and beautifully furnished.
Our teenager left the apartment door open when we left ( luckily a very safe block, and thanks to the neighbour for spotting and closing) and Angelique was great about it ( we were horrified and he will never do it again - general teenager/adult lack of communication). We would recommend this place or host to any visitor, much better than a hotel.

About the Host, Angelique
Hi, We have 3 character filled homes that we love hosting to travelers.
We both work in the design fields, my husband on shows like The Voice and Master Chef and I have worked in design marketing for over twenty years.
We are the owners and managers of our properties, we are not subletting a rental so you won't be evicted should landlords discover you! We do not live in them, so you can be sure of the highest standard and quality as we are dedicated to you. We have been doing this for over six years (long before Airbnb), so we are familiar with the process and have ironed out all the bumps that a newby might not have.
We absolutely love making a space beautiful and want our guests to enjoy our spaces as much as we do.
You are welcome to come and stay and enjoy our beach or city homes.
