*Please note we recently changed sofa beds! The current sofa bed is by King Furniture and is made of engineered, steel frames providing the ultimate in support and durability. The idea of steel and comfort may seem contradictory – King Furniture’s POSTUREFLEX® seating systems are engineered to provide the strength and support necessary for lasting comfort and relaxation. This same steel system of seat suspension is used by Porsche and Rolls Royce to guarantee the ultimate in seating and sleeping.
You have independent access through a secure garage accessed from the rear laneway. Guests have access to the garden and laundry which we share with our guests.
Interaction with Guests
We like to hear how our guests are getting on and to see if they need anything so we tend to have a chat in the garden as guests come and go. We are normally present during our guests stay and we meet and greet guests on arrival and like to farewell guests on departure.
Alexandria's once-largest industrial district looks different than it did just five years ago. Not every formerly industrial location transforms into urban lofts! Warehouses, factories, and rubbish yards still comprise Alexandria's metal and mortar landscape, but this inner-Sydney suburb is becoming increasingly domesticated. Its creative population forges on as their utilitarian leanings slant toward a laissez-faire cafe culture that reviews filmstrips through magnifying glasses. A few miles south of Sydney’s central business district, Alexandria keeps its pulse on the city while fostering its own DIY future.
Fantastic public transport options including trains and buses on your doorstep! If you catch the train from the airport to Green Square station. Exit by the Botany Rd West exit up the escalator and turn right (away from the traffic lights). Walk along Botany Rd to 432 Botany Rd (about 5 minutes) & it s a lime green gate. Put your hand over the door and find and undo the latch on the top right hand side. Then you are here!

we had a lovely stay at betty's cozy and well located place. the studio had everything we needed, very modern furnished. betty and paul gave us lots of information and advice about sydnet....absolutely recommendable.
Betty is so organised and considerate! She made everything very simple, including being there to welcome me and show me the facilities and explain all of the best local dining options.
Betty and Paul were good hosts and we really loved The Loft - we felt warmly welcomed! The Loft was clean and neatly decorated with souvenirs from all over Australia, including lots of maps and guides of Sydney! We were even given souvenirs which we both loved! Would definitely recommend The Loft to my friends or to anyone out there who's visiting Sydney!
Had a lovely stay at the Gardener's Loft! great space with all the amenities plus thoughtful extras from Betty and Paul. Private, comfortable, close to the city and multiple public transport options, also very close to good coffee and food choices, thoughtful hosts who provided us with some great tips and recommendations.
We're looking forward to visiting Sydney again and would definitely book in here if there's any availability.
Thank you Betty for making our stay in Sydney so much more enjoyable!
A great little haven with everything you could need and so close to everything. Betty was very welcoming and a gracious host.
Betty and Paul were very helpful and welcoming hosts. Betty even helped us with our laundry :)
The flat was very clean, beautifully decorated in a modern way with more than everything we needed for our holidays in Sydney.
It is close to the train station and the bus stops, can easily be reached from the airport, and only a few stops to the city centre.
It is an overall quiet neighborhood except for the noise of the planes 2 or 3 days in the morning or at the weekend at night when people are partying.
It was really a pleasure to stay in Betty's Apartment. The Apartment has everything you need. If there was any Question Betty helped us. We will come again and stay in this apartment! Thank you very much!
