About this listing
This apartment is minutes walk from Redfern's cafes, bars and restaurants and Sydney's Central Station. All the benefits of city living - but without the noise.
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 private courtyard garden (with gas BBQ), 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 (available on request).
We can provide a cot and high chair if needed. If you would like to use these items, please let us know, and also include the infant as one guest.

About the Host, Ben & Marielle
We first tried Airbnb as guests and it was great - staying in apartments allowed us to experience places more like locals would. Not only did we explore off the beaten path neighbourhoods with recommendations from our hosts, but we also got to meet some nice people. It's a good way to travel!
Now we use Airbnb to rent our own apartment in Sydney. Meeting and getting to know different people from all over the world has been an amazing experience! Its also nice to be able to positively impact someones trip, and help them discover and enjoy your city. We love Redfern and Sydney and are happy to share our local knowledge of this great city with you too - from cafes, restaurants, bars and attractions, to best picnic spot or favourite beach. If you have any questions, please ask! :)
