Luxury penthouse apartment

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Lawson Square, Redfern, NSW 2016, Australia

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. 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.

Breakfast included
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.

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. 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place was nice and really convenient to travel to inner Sydney. There was also a nice panoramic view, esp at night time. And Peter was nice with great hospitality.

  • Beautiful apartment with dark wood floors and wrap-around balcony with views of downtown. Breakfast selection better than most airbnb and the hosts offered a lot of great tips! Location next to the train makes this one of the best spots to stay for easy access to the whole city. Peter was even nice enough to carry our luggage up the stairs when the elevator malfunctioned.

    March 2014
  • A great location, a great view, a great hospitality and a great coffee in the morning! Patrick and his friend George were very helpful and friendly. Always again! Only the bedroom and the wardrobe are a bit small when you have a lot of luggage.

  • Just the best weekend ever! Our hosts Patrick and George were absolutely delightful and it was wonderful to be made to feel so welcome in their gorgeous penthouse which is beautifully decorated and so close to all amenities. Will definitively make this my favourite place to stay when I am visiting Sydney again.

  • Thank you guys for a hosting us! Beautiful penthouse with incredible views. The location was perfect for us and very conveniently located across from Redfern Station. We walked all around the area and felt perfectly safe, day and night. We will stay with them again on our next visit to Sydney!!

  • This is indeed the 5-star hotel alternative with a beautiful view on the skyline and flickering lights of Sydney at night. The penthouse is such a gorgeous place, very stylish, nicely decorated and also comfy. Patrick and George are the most wonderful people, super relaxed, very helpful and made my stay such a pleasant experience!
    If you are in for a real Sydney experience, I highly recommend staying at their place. Such a lovely and memorable experience! Thank you so much for everything :)

  • We were in Sydney for a few days visiting my brother and his family, and were so lucky to find Peter's apt. The apt was wonderful, all that you could wish: beautiful views from the balcony, very clean, did I mention the great coffee service in the mornings? Peter was very helpful and kind. Also, the location is perfect, right across from the train station! There is also a convenience store on the ground level. We'd definitely stay here again when next we are in Sydney.

    November 2013
  • Beautiful house with great view of Sydney. Peter was very welcoming and helpful. We only stayed for a day which is way too short for Sydney. We will be back hopefully.

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.
