My Bondi apartment is simply but tastefully appointed, and is fully equipped for a wonderful holiday or business stay.
It is in a great location. surrounded by gourmet food shops, cafes and restaurants, with a bus stop outside the door.
It has a balcony with a view of the neighbourhood and the ocean, and its own secure garage- a fantastic asset in busy Bondi. The apartment faces the east, so you are greeted by the morning sun streaming through the large windows.
There is a rooftop pool, with panoramic views of the beach and the city. Perfect spot for watching Sydney's New Year's Eve fireworks- and no traffic to contend with afterwards, just go downstairs to bed!
I live in this apartment when I am working in Sydney, so it has all the comforts of home, including 100% cotton bedsheets and pure wool blankets- no nasty synthetics! and good cooking facilities and equipment. We have Cable TV and a DVD player, so lots of options for relaxing.
The building is quiet, despite its busy location in Bondi Rd, halfway between the beach and Bondi Junction, where there is great shopping for all tastes and a railway station, from which you can catch a quick train to the city or beyond.
You will have total privacy- I live outside of Sydney and only use the apartment when I have a job in Sydney, where I work in Films & TV.

We will post a letter box key to you, or arrange for you to collect it, and the apartment pass and key are in the letterbox. The buzzer for the garage is in the apartment.

No smoking, no pets.
I have booked Lorettas apartment for my parents for 2 weeks. They loved her place and location too. Loretta's apartment was very tidy and you will find there everything you need. Whole communication was very easy and clear with Lorreta. She was very helpful and understanding. I would definitely recommend her apartment for anyone and when my family will come next time, she will be the first one I will contact and ask for accommodation.
I spent good time in Loretta' s lovely studio. It has nice and confortable furniture and it is full of everything you may need (air conditioning and television with foxtel included). There is also a nice equipped balcony. The building is safe and quite and it is around 800 metres from Bondi beach. On Bondi Road there are nice restaurants and good supermarkets. Bondi Junction with shops and shopping malls is at around 15 minutes walking distance. The garbage and the laundry rooms are usefully located on the floor of the studio (except for recycle bins which are on the 2nd floor where there are parts of the garage). On the terrace of the building there is a little shared swimming pool and a great view on Bondi beach. Hoping to come back in the next future!
We were made very welcome and it was a very nice neighborhood. There were a few rowdy parties either a floor or two above us or just beside us. In general it was very quiet. Our biggest complaint was that the apartment had not been given "a good" cleaning in quite awhile.
We have 'Super Host ' status- we go out of our way to make guests comfortable and welcome. Our apartment is perfectly clean by normal standards and we have never had any complaints or comments about it before. Apparently Moe's husband has a dust allergy so I would advise potential hosts to take this into account- also, they cut off the electricity supply to the apartment by plugging in a foreign appliance without an adaptor- we supply all kinds of adaptors for guests to use- which was pretty careless.
Loretta was superbly helpful throughout the booking process and stay, helpful, informative and accommodating.
The accommodation was exactly as described, and the location was perfect for us. We particularly enjoyed the convenience of the excellent local dining and takeaway options.
I enjoyed my stay in Lorettas studio very much. It's very close to the public transport and there are a lot of shops and restaurants around. I can really recommend this accommodation to everyone.
I stayed at Loretta's for 3 weeks as I was in Sydney for work and it worked perfectly.
The Flat is perfectly located with food shops open late in the evening, only a few minutes to the beach.
I first thought it will be noisy but it is actually not at all, slept well every night despite the jetlag.
