Fabulous space in luxury penthouse in leafy Cremorne, minutes to the city and the beaches. Your own en-suite bathroom with shower, queen bed and a private balcony with harbour views to enjoy. With Nespresso coffee/tea, wifi & laundry in the flat.
Hi my name is Ingrid and my husband Curtis and I love to entertain and meet new people, so we thought this would be a great way to do just that while helping with the bills.
We have a beautiful 3 bedroom penthouse apartment located in the up-market Lower North Shore with great access to many of Sydney's attractions. Gorgeous leafy views make our place feel removed from the hustle and bustle of the surrounds and you can see the fireworks on the harbour from our rooftop deck. The apartment is fully renovated, split over two levels, beautifully furnished and has 3 balconies. Despite our close proximity to the city, we are surrounded by native wild life and have Rainbow Lorikeets, (beautiful local parrots) amongst other interesting animals, visit us daily to be hand fed. You'll love these guys, they have such cheeky personalities!
The Maple Room
This room is a little bit of home away from home for my Canadian husband Curtis; I have just redecorated and it's lovely! You'll have a private ensuite bathroom and your own balcony with lush views (it's a great place to greet the morning while sipping on a cafe latte). This room has tonnes of natural light, but also has block out blinds if you want to sleep in for a while and relax in the comfortable queen sized bed.
Curtis and I are professionals but come from hospitality backgrounds - I love to cook, Curt can mix a mean cocktail and weather permitting, we light up the BBQ and chill out on the deck with a frosty beverage. Both well traveled (Curt's originally from Vancouver), we know what it's like to live out of a suitcase and want to bring a little home away from home to other travellers.
We do our best to share dinner with our guests, or at least a glass of wine during their stay. It really depends on our schedules and that of our guests at the time, but we do try to be hospitable in any case!

Fantastic restaurants, cocktail bars and the famous Hayden Opheum Art Deco theatre are literally a 2 minute walk away, as is transport to the city, Taronga Zoo and some of Sydney's most stunning beaches (all within 10 minutes). For the health conscious or anyone wanting to see Sydney Harbour from a different perspective, the 5km walk around Cremorne Point is just amazing and some beautiful National Parks are also a short walk away, getting out and about to really see Sydney is never a chore.
If you love the night life it's a quick bus or cab ride to the city and we are happy to guide you to the right party destination for you, give you the inside scoop on some of Sydney's best restaurants or perhaps get you on the guest list at one of Sydney's great clubs!
You can take a scenic ferry ride across our beautiful harbour from Cremorne Point ferry terminal and see the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens and more! It's the perfect way to view these iconic land marks.
The bus stop is a 2 minute walk and services run every few minutes to the city (10 min trip), Chatswood (10 mins) and Manly Beach (15 mins). The ferry is an easy 15-20 minute walk with services to Circular Quay and Manly Beach.
My husband & I stayed at The Maple Room for 2 nights, Ingrid is the perfect host, helpful & friendly & the room is great, very clean and comfy, and so nice to have a balcony! Ingrid was very welcoming & we shared a quick glass of wine with her before heading out to meet our friends who live near by. Location is great for access to city via bus or taxi too, we would stay again for sure!
Fantastic hostess and host. How welcome can you be made? Red wine and a kebab! The Maple Room was perfecf - privacy with a view. The unit is terrific. Unreservedly recommended.
Ingrid and Curtis are fantastic hosts. They were lovely, so welcoming, accommodating and understanding of my circumstances. They are very well prepared, full of information at hand on the the area, local amenities, things to do in Sydney, etc. The apartment is beautiful, full of light, spacious, very well decorated and equipped and so homely. The bedroom is so much more than I expected, very bright, spacious, with a lovely balcony and very nicely decorated as well. I loved my stay and will keep in touch to stay there in future. I would recommend it to all, absolutely.
Ingrid and Curtis are wonderful hosts. Thanks to them we had the best vantage point for the NYE fireworks! We had a great time at their place, which is very nice and clean.
Ingrid and Curtis are so friendly it's like we have known them for years. They really made us feel at home and were very helpful in planning our time in Sydney and Australia, and they can let their hair down so be ready.
We would recommend anyone who can respect others space and wants to be close to but not right in Sydney to check this out.
Ingrid y su marido son grandes huéspedes. La habitación es como en la descripción y las fotos. Muy agradable.
Un buena experiencia.
Judy and I had a very enjoyable stay with Ingrid and Curtis in Sydney. Very friendly and helpful helpful hosts and I would hae no reservation recommending their BnB to others travelling to Sydney.
My husband and I had a fabulous stay with Ingrid and Curt. We are planning on staying with them every time that we head to Sydney for work or fun!
Wow, what a great stay I had. The room I stayed in was excellent, I loved waking up in my very comfortable bed with the sun shining in my my beautiful room and the birds singing their morning concerts.
The location of the apartment was fantastic, in 15 minutes you are everywhere you want to be and restaurants and shops in just a few minutes walk.
But the difference that made the difference were Ingrid and Curtis, they are amazing hosts. I was in Sydney for a very intense course and they were so supportive in every way they could. I really felt at home from the very first moment and felt that way for the 4 weeks I stayed. I'm sure that I would not have achieved the results I have if it wasn't for them!
I'll definitely come back, not only to do another training but to stay at the best and most relaxing place I ever stayed to study and of course to spend more quality time with my new friends!
Ingrid and Curtis were wonderful hosts who made us feel welcome the minute that we walked through the door. They were full of fun and amusing to be with. Our room was wonderful and gave excellent views of Mosman. Our only regret was that our holiday came to an end and we have now returned home. We would absolutely stay with Ingrid and Curtis again and would recommend them to other Airbnb users.
