The Space

The stunning penthouse
I live in Redfern, in the landmark apartment building - Lawson point. The apartment is 245sqm with a massive wrap around terrace that has uninterrupted views over the Sydney city and extending as far out as the Blue Mountains. There is wifi, air-conditioning in all rooms, bed linen and towels. The large modern kitchen is of commercial grade with solid black marble bench tops.

The large open plan living area has TV, DVD player, Apple TV access, BOSE sound system and three entry points onto the large sun drenched terrace. The wrap around terrace has aspects facing North, East & west, so it gets sun all day. There are two outdoor dining area's, landscaped plants and a water feature surrounded by large evergreen trees.

I no longer smoke, unfortunately a great many interesting people still do, so smoking is permitted on the terrace only.

I have two rooms available. Both have queen size beds, air-conditioned and well appointed with crisp white sheets and towels. The guests rooms are serviced by a private bathroom.

Breakfast included
A continental breakfast of cereal, breads, Jams, Juice, Tea, Coffee and seasonal fruits are provided. The kitchen has two full sized dishwashers, so it's easy to clean up after cooking.

The hippest suburb of Sydney
Redfern has "come of age" over the last couple of years and is now regarded as the hippest suburb in Sydney, with numerous coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries and small trendy bars all within minutes of the front door. Saturday mornings there is the Redfern Farmers markets which has an amazing range of fresh produce, and always worth a stroll.

Public transport
The Redfern railway station is directly across the road and is just minutes to the CBD, and Bondi. No need to change trains, it's a direct line. Whilst you are here, your room is your sanctuary and your privacy and independence is guaranteed, so you won't get your bed made on a daily basis, but you will get what the hotels can't offer, such as a warm friendly environment.

So, if you want to experience this fantastic apartment, and share in the joy of what I call home, then you are warmly welcomed.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Hosts were gracious and welcoming, was great to meet them and helped us consistantly, couldn't ask for better hosts. House was immaculate and views were spectacular. Great location as train station was across the road and close to the city center. I definitely recommend staying and would stay again!

  • Patrick is a more than perfect host. He was helpful in every way. The penthouse apt is immaculate and the views of the Sydney skyline are fabulous. The location next to the train station is so convenient. Fantastic stay!

  • We had a great time in Sydney. Patrick's place was a perfect base to access Redfern, Paddington etc. and easy for the city.
    The room was small and you may have to share the bathroom with other guests but the we were very comfortable. Convenience does have a cost though. Take earplugs if you are not used to sleeping with city traffic noise. It was pretty full on for country hicks.

  • Patrick e' stato gentilissimo durante tutto il mio soggiorno.
    Mi ha dato una mano in alcune cose ed e' stato molto amichevole.
    La casa e' molto bella , la terrazza e' fantastica , il luogo e' abbastanza vicino al centro.
    E' un buon rapporto qualita' prezzo.
    Consiglio a tutti!!

  • What a great first Air BnB experience. Both Patrick and George did everything to ensure my stay was perfect. They invited me into their home and included me in their gathering that night making me feel instantly at home. They're both warm, kind, generous and of course friendly. The apartment is beautiful with gorgeous views from the massive balcony! Short trip to the city with the train station directly opposite. Would recommend this place to anyone.

  • Peter and George were great hosts! They made you feel right at home.
    The apartment is in a great location and the view from the balcony is just stunning.
    I had a great stay and can only recommend it to others.
    @Peter – please let me know when you are going to paint the ceiling again, I could do with a laugh

  • Peter was overseas at the time of our stay so we were hosted by the affable but worldly George. We could not have asked for a more welcoming stay in a fabulous location than here. The apartment was spotless but still had a homely feel. George was extremely helpful directing us to local shops, cafes, transport links and offered great advice on things to do and see in the immediate area. A highlight was the local Everleigh Farmers and Produce Market just a 10 minute picturesque walk from the apartment on Saturday morning. We watched Kylie Kwong prep hawker style food and tasted the best chocolate brownies ever! If only we lived there! With Redfern Station across the road, travelling everywhere was easy. John and I highly recommend staying with George and Peter in their stunning apartment with spectacular city views. We arrived as strangers but left as friends. Thanks George for a memorable stay.

Hello, my name is Peter-Patrick. I have been living in Sydney for 12 years with my partner. We have been hosting travelers/tourists/professionals for over 5 years now.I grew up in Ireland, ( God's own country!) and I have lived in London, Dublin and Berlin and now Sydney. I love to travel and meet new people so I get a lot of enjoyment out of having new folks in my home. It's always great to hear about other folks experiences and ideas. I love the outdoor Sydney life-style and when the sun is out I'm either cycling, running or swimming, ( I can't let a good day go to waste.) We BBQ a lot, so apart from the breakfast bar, (tea, coffee, toast, cereal, fruit, etc....) if you are around in the evenings you might get fed too. I consider myself pretty relaxed and easy going. I speak German and am learning Spanish, (Berlin and Barcelona are my other favorite Cities.) For a lot of people Australia is a once in a life-time trip, ( given the cost and distance,) So we want to do our small bit to make sure your stay here in OZ, ( God's other own country! ) is memorable.
