This two-room apartment is located smack bang in central Sydney, and is the perfect base for exploring the city either by foot, or public transport!
Even with such close proximately to the city and CBD, our neighbourhood is remarkably relaxed!
The apartment is nestled in between the uber-cool Surry Hills and Redfern, on charming tree-lined Pitt Street (close to the intersection of Cleveland Street, and Prince Alfred Park). Here you’re within convenient walking distance of some of Sydney’s best restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as numerous small art galleries and exhibition spaces in neighbouring Chippendale.
Walk to Sydney City (CBD) in approx. 15-25 minutes, or even all the way to the Opera House in about 45 minutes if you are keen!
Public transport is also close by, with Sydney's main station, 'Central Station' approximately 5 minutes walk through Prince Alfred Park. Trains, buses and metro-lightrail all depart from here, so you will be able to get around Sydney with no hassles! (There is also a train to both the international and domestic airports that stops at Central).
The apartment itself is located on the ground floor of a security building.
It features a tranquil (private) courtyard garden, a balcony that overlooks a second front garden, and is surrounded by three lovely parks.
There are two light and bright bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed, and the lounge can be converted into a double bed if needed. We also have a queen-sized, and a single bed sized self-inflating blow up mattress.

Ben and Marielle's apartment is great! It is very comfortable for 4-5 people, and it was clean and neat when we arrived. Special thanks to both of them for waiting for us when our flight got terribly delayed. They had been very nice hosts and made us feel welcomed on our first day.
There's a underground garage which was very useful for our rental car. With the car, it was easy to explore the city. On days that we did not drive, the metro is only 5-10min walk away through the park and there's also a bus stop on the next street.
It is convenient to get to anywhere from their apartment. Theres a nearby supermarket where we did our groceries and nice little cafes for our morning bites. Further down the street, there's pizza and lebanese restaurant for dinner too.
Through our stay, Marielle even wrote us emails to make sure we were doing okay and recommended places that we could visit.
I'd highly recommend Ben and Marielle's apartment!
Perfect location, lovely apartment, Marielle was very friendly, flexible and gave us heaps of tips. We definitely recommend to stay at Ben and Marielle's place, great choice!
Lovely apartment in a great neighbourhood. Both hosts were very helpful whatever we enquired and replied promptly. Recommended
Marielle is a nice hostess and uncomplicated! The apartement is clean, spacious for 4 persons and also near to the central station. It is very well suited to stay a couple of days in Sydney! Thank you very much!
Marielle is a friendly host. The apartment was clean and the beds are comfortable. Loads of good books and the central location with parking is convenient.
All in all, a recommendable stay!
Was a great base to explore Sydney. Marielle and Ben were really friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend.
We had an amazing time in Ben and Marielle's place. I think the apt is perfectly located to experience the city as well as the suburbs. Right down the street there are great coffee shops and restaurants, we always started our day off with breakfast at one of the cafes which are just a five minute walk down the road. The apartment was so convenient we had a grill, laundry machines a dishwasher, a kitchen and internet, so much better than staying at a hotel or hostel! A nice park and a pool are right across the street and the neighborhood has a quiet, homey feel, we felt like one of the locals instead of being packed in with other tourists. I highly recommend doing business with Ben and Marielle, easy to communicate with, totally honest and very helpful, I would do it again in a heartbeat!
What a great apartment. We loved the area, close enough to central Sydney and loads of great cafe's. The children also loved being so close to the swimming pool in the park. The apartment itself was perfect. Well equipped, comfortable and convenient. Thank you for a great stay!
We loved our stay at Ben and Marielle's. They were great to communicate with. It was lovely to be met by Max. We felt at home immediately. It was such a great space and very clean. Great location especially for public transport. We would highly recommend staying at Ben and Marielle's.
Back in Holland now and we really miss this beautiful spot in Sydney. We stayed in Ben and Marielle's apartment for three nights with our two daughters (6 and 8) and we found it very difficult to leave. Close to parks, swimming pool and Central Station, in less than 10 minutes you're in the city center! For your breakfast and coffee/tea: go to the cafe next door, perfect! The apartment itself is clean, spacious and has a personal touch. It felt like home :). Thanx Marielle (hope you enjoyed your travel to Europe!)
