Our home is a light and airy apartment only 5 minutes walk from the North end of Sydney's famous Bondi Beach. We are renting the home while away on holiday - it is a lovely, smoke free, child-friendly home.
The building is in an art-deco block of four (so not a big high rise apartment) with a large grass back yard, deck and BBQ area, great neighbours and a bus stop right outside the front door. From the street you can see the ocean and we get lots of kookaburras, cockatoos and lorikeets.
The master bedroom has a brand new, very comfy pillow top queen size bed with memory foam and couchi organic linen. There is also a cot which converts to a couch or toddler bed, let us know what you prefer so we can set it up for you. A bassinet can also be provided.
The second bedroom can be set up with a double air mattress (linen provided) please just let us know you will be needing it.
The couch in the lounge room is a beautiful king furniture 3 seater with a feather top. This can be used as a single bed quite comfortably.
Opposite the house is a golf course which you can walk through to catch incredible ocean views and spot whales (May to November) and continue up to Bondi's highest point (Hugh Bamford Reserve), where you have a panoramic view of Sydney's city skyline, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Our place is also 5 minutes from some of Bondi's loveliest wine bars, coffee shops and the friendliest corner store/deli you'll ever find!
The kitchen has a gas stove and we love cooking so there is a whole cupboard of cooking equipment at your disposal if you need it (even an ice cream machine!). There is a french pine table, record player and plenty of cook books.
A relaxed and comfortable room with a large 3 seater couch, rocking chair and armchair. We have a large sony flatscreen, dvd player and plenty of dvds to choose from.
Close by are places to rent surf boards, paddle boards and snorkels, and to get surf lessons. The snorkelling around the North Bondi rocks is great and on a calm day you can swim all the way out to the head of Ben Buckler Point, a great diving spot called "flat rock". There's a really nice ocean walk that goes South to Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee beaches - its about a 30 minute walk to Bronte.
Bath towels & bed linen provided.
Bondi is well suited for kids also with heaps of parks with play equipment scattered around the place.
To get to the city there is an express bus from right outside or you can head over to Rose Bay and get the ferry direct into Circular Quay, this is really lovely option but it's about a $10 cab ride to Rose bay wharf from our place (or a 10 min bike ride). The same ferry goes in the other direction out to Watsons Bay.
We live at the North end of Bondi which is set apart from the more touristy areas in the centre and South end of the beach. We love it here and we hope you will too!

We had a great 6 night stay at Janna and Pat's. My husband, son and I enjoyed it very much. There was an easy walk or bus ride down to the beach and the bus picked up and dropped off right outside their house. Close to food and a market. We didn't really do much cooking but the kitchen looked as if it had everything you would need. They left an awesome map of the area and surrounding beaches as well as a great booklet on the different areas to check out in Sydney. We used it the whole time :) It was nice to have the option of getting Wifi (it is fast) if you want to stay somewhat connected. They left detailed info on how to work everything in their house. It was all very easy and smooth and we would stay there again if we ever got the chance to visit Bondi again. Jana and Pat were helpful and communicative throughout. Friendly neighbors too :)
Very friendly couple. Helpful about where to go and how to get around. Janna provides some maps, guides, business cards, and a Frankie Magazine. Much appreciated! You have your own fridge. The wi-fi is fast. Oh, and we loved their cat. Highly recommend this stay.
The apartment is nice and conveniently located close to public transport and Bondi beach. Janna and Pat are a great couple. We enjoyed our time there.
Incredibly comfy bed in a nice location offered by a nice couple who were very accommodating and pleasant.
We had a good week on the nice bondi beach and received an insight into the live of Sydney. Janna and Pat were friendly hosts. The flat has a nice Location, not fare to the beach and other attractions.The private room was basic, but ok. The kitchen has a really good equipment, you find all you need to cook. Unfortunately we had to shorten our staying from 2,5 weeks to one week, cant cancel that befor and explained this Janna to find together a solution. One day later, Janna provided a fair proposal and we agreed. After our staying we recognized unfortunately, that Janna felt under pressure in her proposal, but we think the problem was that the most communication were per eMail, although we lived in one flat. Thats among other things the reason that we felt summarized a bit unwelcome.(We didnt received a explanation, as we came, where we find something. We received just the key and sheet include all instructions. Also we had unfortunately no really contact)
There was a comprehensive letter on the table in your bedroom with all the information about the house and where things are kept.
We work during the day which is why a those times we used email to try and sort out your cancellation dates as quickly as possible for you. We did feel pressured by your 11pm request to cancel and have us confirm a refund beyond what the policy states on spot. We apologise that you didn't feel welcomed when you arrived but it was late at night and we've generally found late arrivals prefer to hit the shower and bed - and the letter does tell you everything you need to know.
We have never had a cancellation or a bad experience through airbnb before and generally our guests absolutly love the house and their time with us.
All the best for your travels,
Janna and Pat provided my partner and me with a lovely room and apartment to share, great instruction on the locality which always had us arrive on time to all parts of town. Bondi Beach amazed and is a pleasant place to stay and was our second choice and now is absolutely first after experiencing other areas of Sydney. I would happily recommend this accommodation, as we were looked after well. Thanks to Janna and Pat.
Great location. Easy bus ride or short walk to beach. They were great at accommodating a last minute change in check in.
relaxed and lovely host, with a nice cat. 3 min. to bondi beach and bus stop right outside the door! And a great view of sydney from the street. Thanks for stay.
Really relaxed house within walking distance to the beach which was great. Lovely host couple who were helpful and easy going.
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed beach break.
