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. 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.
Smoking is allowed 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.
A continental breakfast of cereal, breads, Jams, Juice, Tea, Coffee and seasonal fruits are provided.
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.
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. This really is your five star alternative to a hotel. 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.
Smoking permitted on terrace only

I had an amazing time staying with Patrick, he was an excellent host, and the apartment was fabulous. It was literally across the street from a train station, and an easy walk to most of the city.
Patrick was there when I arrived, showed me around and ensured I knew where things were both in the house and in the local area. The description was great, the apartment is really lovely with a great outlook and very conveniently located. I really appreciated being able to explore the eclectic local neighborhood and the apartment was very near to my conference location.
We loved Patrick's superb penthouse suite, with fantastic views across the city and beautiful decor. He was a very welcoming host with great ideas on things to do in Sydney. We would never have thought of booking the opera without his encouragement. The location was very convenient for accessing all parts of the city and there were plenty of local places to eat.
very convenient and cute apartment! patrick and Gergeo are very nice hosts. I had good time.staying in their apartment
Vi bodde med Patrick och George i 4 dagar och vi trivdes väldigt bra! Kan varmt rekommendera att bo hos dom i den härliga lägenheten i Redfern; vill man ha egentid och avskildhet så får man det, vill man fråga om Sydney, Australien generellt eller bara ha roligt sällskap så får man det.
Superbra bemötande, fräscht och rent, de har hotelltvål och schampoo + balsam, handdukar fint ihoprullade hotell-style i badrummet man får som sitt eget :) Frukost finns också - mjölk & flingor, rostat bröd, te, kaffe. Wi-Fi fungerade bra, väldigt nära tågen som alla stannar i Redfern så det är centralt och lätt att ta sig runt, och skulle du behöva tips på saker att se - eller hur du lättast undviker värsta folksamlingarna så du kommer med bussen till Bondi Beach så har Patrick alla svaren :)
Vi hade också turen att få ihop att en BBQ på terrassen ihop innan vi rullade vidare - och det var en jättekul kväll! Både Patrick och George är roliga, omtänksamma och sociala och de delar gärna med sig av stories från Australien såväl som Irland, Tyskland och Spanien - sköna typer båda två. Jag och pojkvännen kommer definitivt hälsa på detta härliga par igen nästa gång vi besöker Sydney!
Thanks guys! All the best, Nina & Isak
We've had a great time in Sydney, staying at the lovely apartment of Peter-Patrick, who was a great host, providing all sorts of handy advise and even offered us to have dinner. It was conveniently located near the tram that brings you to the city centre in less than 10 min. The house was pretty, spacious, clean and had an huge terrace with an unbeatable view! We enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend it to others!

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.
