Quality unit with amazing views of bridge and harbour. Only mins to Kirribill village with all its cafes. One stop to city by ferry or train. Guests have their own bedroom, bathroom and balcony and full use of common areas. Wi-fi/cable available.

The Space

Welcome to this newly renovated modern apartment that looks directly towards Circular Quay, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Both Front and back balconies have spectacular views.

Just 5 minutes to Kirribilli village shops and restaurants and Milsons Point train station (one stop to the CBD) and 10 minutes from the Ferry and Luna Park, the apartment is perfect for a holiday or business. Walk across the famous harbour bridge to the city or catch the ferry into Circular Quay or Darling Harbour.

The apartment is in one of Sydney’s quality apartment blocks and features:
•Front balcony with spectacular views;
•Modern lounge, dining and kitchen;
•Light and spacious north facing queen size room with a balcony and water views.
•Fully renovated guest bathroom with washing machine and dryer;
•Free wi-fi and foxtel (pay TV/ cable);
•Outdoor swimming pool.

Your hostess will love to have you and give you tips on how to enjoy and make the most of Sydney. Fluent French and some Spanish spoken.

Guest Access

Guests have private bedroom, bathroom and balcony and full use of all common areas. Host has private bedroom and ensuite.

Interaction with Guests

I love guests to make themselves at home and to chat with themthroughout their stay without being intrusive. I send out an information manual with details on the apartment and the area and have more information on visiting Sydney in the room.
I work three days a week so guests have private use of common areas a lot of the time.

The Neighborhood

Kirribilli is known as a village in the centre of Sydney. It is so close to the city (one stop by ferry or train) but is very safe and its many cafes and small shops make it fell as if it is miles away from all the histle and busle of the CBD.

Getting around

Kirribilli is fantastic for public transport. Milsons Point train station is less than 10 mins away from the apartment and from there it is one stop to the business end of the city and two stops (6 mins) from the main shopping area. The ferry is also around 10 mins away and takes 6 mins to get to Circular Quai and 10 mins to Darling Harbour.

Other Things to Note

While I don't offer to cook breakfast, I do have cereal and toast available for guests to help themselves. Small containers of UHT milk are provided as a starter.

There is a small bin for rubbish under the sink but recyclables (paper, bottles and cans) go into larger bins in the rubbish room next to the lift on the same level. If you leave these out on the bench, I am happy to put them in the bin.

  • Alles war wundervoll!
    Die Wohnung von Lynleih ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, gemütlich und sehr sauber. Man hat ein schönes Zimmer mit einem sehr guten Bett, einem großen Einbau-Schrank, wandhohen Glastüren zu einen Balkon mit Sicht auf den traumhaften Sonnenaufgang über Sydney und ein herrliches Bad mit Waschmaschine ganz für sich alleine. Lyn hat für ihre Gäste alles bereitgestellt, was man sich nur wünschen kann: z.B. Steckdosenadapter, Wärmflasche und extra Heizung, viele nützliche Infos über Sydney und Umgebung. Die City Walk Cards haben uns besonders gut gefallen. Wohnzimmer, Küche und den Balkon mit dem wirklich spektakulären Blick teilt man sich mit der Gastgeberin. Während unseres Aufenthalts war Lyn vereist, wir verständigten uns per Mail und ihre Freundin Prue hieß uns willkommen. Lyn hat wirklich alles sehr gut organisiert. Die Wegbeschreibung und ein ausführliches Manual zur Wohnung helfen einem sich gut zurecht zu finden. Mit dem Zug kommt man gut vom Flughafen in den schönen Stadteil Kirribilli. Geschäfte, Post, Restaurants, Fähranleger usw. kann man von der Wohnung aus zu Fuß erreichen und zu Fuß über die Brücke oder mit der Fähre auf die andere Seite des Hafens kommen. Wir haben so gerne in Lynleighs Wohnung mit dem TraumBlick gewohnt und empfehlen sie von ganzem Herzen als Gastgeberin!

  • Seamless and prompt - Lynleigh made a first-timer experience with Airbnb a rewarding one. From booking to departure, everything was organized, prepared, and taken care of well in advance. Highly recommend and would re-book on any future return trips.

  • The apartment was delightful. Lyn was a perfect host. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable, clean and well appointed. The location is superb, the view stunning. Access to the railway station is easy, and the centre of the city is only a few minutes ride. Lyn gave excellent advice about local eateries and transport.

  • Lyn est une hôte très sympathique et accueillante qui a su nous mettre à l'aise dès le début.
    La vue depuis l'appartement est vraiment magnifique. Celui-ci est très propre, bien agencé, situé dans un quartier agréable et proche des transports. Se rendre en centre ville est très facile et ne prend pas plus de 10-15mn en train, en fonction de votre rythme de marche.
    Beaucoup de restaurants (pour tous les goûts) sont aussi accessibles en 5mn à pied. Sinon, vous pouvez toujours faire un peu de cuisine :-)
    Pour résumer nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Sydney. Merci encore Lyn !

  • Kirribilli was a fabulous location for our 6 day visit to Sydney. Kirrilli is located directly across from the Sydney Opera House & Circular Quay; we had easy acess into Sydney via ferry boats, trains and walking across the Sydney Harbor Bridge with its spectacular views of the world's best harbor city! There are many great restaurants in this quaint little town.

    Lyn was a wonderful host in all respects and her apartment was a fantastic, relaxing place with wonderful views of Sydney Harbor. We had beutiful harbor views from our bedroom balcony and another view of harbor from the living room balcony.

    If we are able to return for a visit to this wonderful city, we hope to stay with Lyn; she is a perfect host with a beautiful apartment.

  • I had booked Lyn's place for my parents who visited me in Sydney for 3 weeks.
    The apartment is really awesome and offers great views of Sydney Harbour, Circular Quay and Harbour Bridge. The bedroom and bathroom are very neat and tidy and have a good size. Lyn' kitchen is well equipped. Living room and dining room are very spacious with a great interior design. Lyn didn't mind having me as a regular guest for dinners as well. She is a great host who helped my parents during their stay and made them feel comfortable very quickly. We couldn't have asked for more! I absolutely recommend this place!

  • What a truely amazing place! It is well named as spectacular views but even the photos do not do it justice. More importantly the host lyn is very helpful and friendly and provides a very helpful booklet in advance with everything you need to know about the area. Kirribilli itself has everything you need in the way of eateries and shops and access to all forms of transport to get you to places of interest. I stayed 3 nights and was able to see quite a lot of sydney by ferry. Train and foot and then return to view it all from the balcony! Highly recommend a stay here. Thank you lyn for making me so welcome. Meg

  • Absolutely fantastic apartment and beautiful views! Lyn is the perfect host. The room is lovely and has a great view and a private balcony. The bathroom is spacious and everything was spotless.
    Kirribilli is a great area and there's a number of cafes and places to eat less than a 5 minute walk away. I walked over the bridge to Circular Quay and back most days and always had my breath taken away by the views. I can't reccommend this place enough - if I go back to Sydney again (and I hope to) I would stay here again. Thankyou for a great place to explore Sydney from!
