Welcome to Double Bay!
Please make sure you have a completed profile with verifications before placing a booking. :-)
We heart Airbnb. We have been traveling this way since 2009 and love it. We have made so many friends and have fabulous memories of our holidays that are mostly due to staying with people through Airbnb.
Come and stay with us in our quirky, comfy art deco apartment in Double Bay. We are in one of the most convenient spots in Sydney. We are 4.5km walk from the CBD, 1 km walk to Edgecliff train station, which is only 2 stops to the CBD via Kings Cross. 700m to the Ferry wharf and bay, 500m to Redleaf harbour swimming pool, bus stops and supermarket within 100m. Bondi Beach is only 3.5 km away. Paddington is an easy walk to Oxford Street shopping and too many cafes and wine bars to count!
Restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, day spas, bottle shops, parks, boutiques, supermarkets are all within 5 mins walk of our apartment.
You will have your own bedroom with a queen size bed! Towels and linens provided, the bed has an electric blanket for colder nights.
We have a great sun room area off the kitchen that is perfect for unwinding on the sofa after a hard day hanging out on the beach.
It takes about 30 minutes on the train from the Airport and costs $16.20 pp, to the closest station which is Edgecliff about 1 km away (10 min walk downhill). Taxi is anything between 20 to 40 minutes, depending on traffic, and would cost around $40 (they add a bunch of Airport taxes).
We are a happily married, Paleo diet and allergy friendly, creative and super fun laid back couple. We will be here to give advice on where to get the best coffee, and where to eat, we can hang out or completely leave you to your own devices. We mostly work from home and our place is more suitable to tourists.
We have complimentary WiFi. Parking is free out the front except between 4:30pm to 6pm weekdays. But seriously you do not need a car. Unless you are driving to Perth, however, then you would need a plane. So anyway. We have an industrial coffee grinder. We are serious about coffee. So if the smell of coffee is in the air, we will offer you a cup. Feel free to cook, clean and be a part of our little community.
We think we are really, really great hosts and look forward to sharing our little piece of Australia with you.
Please note: our apartment is not child friendly and we don't accept bookings for families with babies and children.
Despite the term “Airbnb”, this is NOT a registered bed and breakfast business. You are not purchasing a product or service from us. Rather, you are using an internet-based social networking facility to request an offer of hospitality.
In accepting an offer of accommodation from us, you are agreeing any money received via the “Airbnb” website is not a payment for service, but rather an “ex gratia” (“out of goodwill”) payment made to us because we have invited you to be a guest in our own home and you have accepted this invitation.
If, for any reason, after your arrival at our home, you decide not to accept our hospitality, we will advise the Airbnb website to fully refund your “ex gratia” payment.
We felt very welcome in Brandie and Shauns home, super comfy bed, great vibe to the house, nice area, our hosts were very accommodating and friendly. Access to the city was very easy with Ferry, train and bus services all close by. Next time we're in Sydney we'll be sure to contact Brandie and Shaun first...
We had a great time at Brandie and Shaun's place. The apartment is very clean and comfortable, and the location is incredible. A great Place to explore the whole of sydney and surrounds from. Brandie and Shaun where great hosts, very friendly and welcoming.
Staying at Brandie & Shaun was very comfortable. The room was nice and clean, and the location is convenient to go around Sydney! I would surely recommend this place to my friends. Thank you, Brandie & Shaun.
I stayed for 5 nights at Brandies and Shauns home and I really enjoyed it. The room was really nice and the apartment is close to the bus station and 10-15 min walk to the train station. Brandie & Shaun are really friendly and absolutely relaxed.
We stayed with Brandi and Shaun in early February during a short visit to Sydney. They were friendly and approachable hosts who gave us a ton of suggestions about things to do in Sydney. Their apartment is lovely: it is centrally located, close to the bus and train station as well as the ferry. There are several wonderful restaurants in the area. Our room was cozy and comfortable. We had absolutely no complaints and only wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Brandie and Shaun for making us feel at home!
When I arrived at Brandie and Shaun's apartment I had 38 in fever and a annoying cough. Not the best start but I slowly got better helped by their extreme kindness and understanding. The apartment was in an awesome area and close to everything. The apartment had the coolest kitchen/chill room with massive pine trees with all sorts of birds outside the window. Felt like I was in some French Alpes mountain village house! So if you like a massive bed, a classy area to live and chilled out friendly hosts, then this is the best place to live! Kind regards Thomas
The room was very clean and tidy. Brandie and Shaun were very friendly and very generous hosts. The apartment was great and had everything we needed and more! The double Bay ferry is a good walking distance and same for the train station. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to everyone!
Great apartment with wonderful host. We really enjoyed our stay at Double bay, the apartment was nice, clean and fresh. We really enjoyed the location being so close to an ocean pool at Double bay and also the ferry Wharf.
Brandie and Shaun were great hosts - chilled, welcoming and lovely people! We felt instantly comfortable in the room and were able to take full advantage of the excellent location as it's close to the stunning Eastern Suburbs bays (loads of great spots for brekkie and a sunbathe) and a gorgeous 10 min ferry trip to the CBD. A great experience!
Great hosts. We had a fantastic time in Sydney and such a comfortable an friendly place to stay whilst we were there.
