Welcome to Potts Point!
This apartment open plan studio has a balcony with a view to Sydney Harbour, and every time you leave the apartment you will see the top of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge!
Located in the "Paris End" of Potts Point, you can walk to the world class restaurants of Finger Wharf, or up the street to amazing bars and eateries. Go for a jog to the Boy Charlton swimming pool which hangs over the harbour, or stroll to the Botanic Gardens and stop at the magnificent Art Gallery of NSW.
Easy walking access to the train station and bus stop, and taxis are easy to find. The bus to the city is just across the road - catch the 311. I recommend downloading the iphone app "tripview" if you have an iphone. This is a fantastic app which takes the guesswork out of public transport. The train station is a 10 min walk and from there you can catch a train to Central and change to catch the airport train to the domestic or international airport. Taxis are frequent outside the apartment too.
The apartment has tv, wifi internet, a wii games unit and dvd player. There is a double bed in a nook and curtain dividers from the living room, a shower bathroom, a small sofa and an arm chair, and a dining table for two. There is a coin operated laundry downstairs. The kitchen has a full size fridge, an oven and a drawer-style dishwasher.
I am always available to help with any questions and will make sure you are comfortable .
Look forward to meeting you!

We arrived to a lovely apartment which perfectly suited our needs for our short stay in Sydney. Basic provisions had been provided which was welcomed after a morning of travelling. All in all, this was a very positive experience.
We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Dave's apartment. Unfortunately we didn't meet him in person, but the check in process went smoothly. Other reviewers have mentioned the construction next door, so as an update: most of the external work is complete so it isn't very noisy. The apartment is well stocked for cooking and the internet was fast. Thank you Dave!
This studio apartment is in a great location with everything you need for a short stay. The TV took a little bit of fiddling to get it working and the aircon was a must during the hot days. Apartment was clean and basic but the flowers and toast were a nice touch. Hopefully the neighbouring works will be finished by the next time we plan to come and stay again!
Great experience!! Dave was really communicative, friendly and supplied all the necessary information before we even asked for it!
The apartment was lovely! Clean, perfect location (walking distance from bus stop, train station, restaurants and grocery store) we also arrived to fresh flowers, milk, bread and jam... couldn't have asked for more!!
Thanks Dave :)
Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, einfach und zweckmässig. Es ist alles was man braucht vorhanden und geplegt. Dave und Lisa sind sehr nett und unkompliziert.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr gut. Leider sind die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel in Sydney sehr dürftig so dass es nicht so einfach ist in die Stadt zu kommen. Es gibt den Stadtbus der sehr unpünktlich und schwach frequentiert fährt. Fahrräder wären wohl die perfekte Lösung. Für den grösseren Geldbeutel empfehlen wir das Taxi.
Dave was very responsive in our email exchanges, and was most accommodating of slight change of plans. The studio was as described and seen in the pics. The central location is fantastic, within a lovely 20 minute walk around the botanical gardens to the circular quay harbour. Public transportation is very convenient and accessible. The neighbourhood (Potts Point) is absolutely charming. The only two downsides are the construction of a new apartment building next door, which makes it impossible to sleep past 07:00, or to hang around the place during the daytime for a nap! The studio also gets quite hot and stuffy...a portable AC unit alleviates this greatly (and thankfully) but is quite noisy (mind you, it covers the noise of the construction early in the morning!). Thank you Dave!
Nice flat close to Macleay Street with lots of restaurants. Everything there that one can possibly need.
Dave was a great host! Welcomed us and gave us great advice on where to go. And best of all: he arranged a taxi for us to get to the airport. At 4:30 AM. Even got up and made sure we got there (offered to drive us if anything went wrong!!!)
Thanks again, Dave, we had a great time!!!
My name's Dave, and my wife is Lisa, and we are from Sydney Australia. We've taken over from the lovely Lucy to run this apartment as she has moved on to an apartment in Byron Bay. We look forward to giving you the same close friendly attention as Lucy has over the last year.
We're very respectful and will take the greatest care and appreciation of your property, and love people who do the same with ours!
We love traveling to look at great art and architecture, and love beautiful Sydney Harbour, the bridge and the Opera House, and we love Italy, especially the South, where Lisa's familiy is from.
