This light and comfortable one-bedroom apartment is in the best position in Bondi, the most exciting suburb in Sydney. Uninterrupted views, a stones throw from the beach, endless entertainment yet surprisingly quiet.
BONDI BEACHFRONT BOHEMIAN APARTMENT
Why stay at Ravesis? Half the price and twice the size. Same position only better and more comfortable.
Beautiful older-style Parisian style apartment overlooking Bondi Beach, steps to sand. Staying at this apartment is an experience.
Ideal for couples, executives and creatives.
High ceilings, polished floorboards,piano, lots of natural light.
An older-style apartment with loads of character decorated in Parisian style - suited to guests who appreciate an artistically decorated space.
The main living area is large, light, airy (has ceiling fans) , loads of room and has breathtaking views. The kitchenette is attached to the main living room and is fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge, food blender, and crockery and cutlery.The bedroom is large with plenty of cupboard space, also has ceiling fans and a cupboard full of lovely white linen.
The bathroom is compact but still manages to provide you with a bath (half-bath) - not just a shower as in many apartments.
Situated on Bondi's main shopping strip amongst cafes, bars and public transport, you could not be more central. Directly across the road from the beach.
One bedroom + one bathroom with half-bath and shower, washing machine, tumble-drier.
There is so much to do when living here - swim at the Icebergs Pool directly across the road, walk to Tamarama, bus across the road to go into the city,and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. You can never be bored when staying here. The area is thriving with activity and that lovely "beach" vibe. Yet it is not noisy as the apartment is on the second floor and the bedroom is at the back through another door.
Parking in Bondi is at a premium but public transport to everywhere is at the door.
Internet connection -- high speed wi fi. The modem has just been replaced (there had been a remark about the wi fi not functioning properly in a review). all working fine now.
Preferred period of stay 10 days however shorter stays are also accepted.
Max 2 people.
Entire apartment, plenty of cupboard space.
Interaction with Guests
I prefer to meet with the guests on arrival. If I am away I will have a friend welcome the guests. I am on call for any requirements or problems.
The most exciting and entertaining neighborhood in Sydney. Cafes, restaurants, beach, sea-pool, surfing, designer shopping, organic cuisine. Lots of eye-candy! No need to leave this suburb - its all here.
buses and taxis at the door.
no smoking or pets , and maximum of two people.
Even before I arrived I knew Susan would be an amazing host, she went above and beyond to answer all my questions and accommodate any special needs, she even drove me to my appointment which was scheduled soon after my arrival!
When I arrived at the apartment all I could say was WOW! The photos do not do the amazing view justice. A birds eye view over Bondi beach and Icebergs, it doesn't get much better! The location is perfect, no need to leave the area for the BEST food, and shopping - have plenty of cash ready for the Gould St. Boutiques ha ha. Susan also gave me tips on the best eating/drinking spots in the area which was a great help.
The apartment itself has so much character and charm, a great layout and even though you are in the midst of all the action it was still peaceful. I see a previous review on Air BnB suggests it was cold and damp - NOT AT ALL. It was sun filled and perfect. Also a heater supplied if you need it for a winter stay.
On departure Susan helped me down with my bags (I had an operation so needed assistance). She is just so helpful and lovely, I could not have asked for more in a host. I cannot wait for my next stay! Highly recommended.
What a wonderful honeymoon stay my husband and I had in Bondi. Susan was an incredible host; very responsive over text message before and after our stay and most kind to allow us to leave out bags for a few extra hours after check our so we could finish exploring town. There is so much to explore by the beach although it is very tempting to stay in and enjoy the view of the surf from the great big windows in the lovely living room decorated with Susan's original artwork. Susan gave great recommendations for breakfast and coffee spots including Lox Stock & Barrel restaurant and the Gertrude and Alice bookshop cafe. Another favorite was Porch and Parlour for breakfast of cinnamon bun French toast and a green brekky of kale and avo eggs. Despite the winter weather we loved exploring the town and beach right outside our door as well as the city just a 40 min bus ride away. When we returned at night we kept cozy warm with the handy space heater Susan provided and had a perfect view of the sunset.
The apartment was very characteristic, and had all the basic amenities for a comfortable stay. The amazing location allowed us to wake up every morning to watch the sunrise and the waves, and spy on the joggers and surfers on the beach. Because we stayed here in the winter (July), the apartment felt cold and damp due to the humidity. But overall, it was a lovely stay and unique experience.
Susan is a great host and fully explained all the things I needed to know.
Superb location, very comfortable bed and lots of space to do my yoga practise. Easy living indeed.
The apartment is on the second floor with no lift, so by the end of the week I was springing up those stairs.
All round an excellent place to stay to feel a part of the Bondi Beach vibes.
Thank you Susan.
As an ex Bondi local I can tell you this is a sweet spot. View is amazing and location is fantastic. Now all I have to do is get Susan to sell it to me ;)
