About this listing
Our apartment in is one of Sydney's best locations, close to Ferry, Bus and Train. We are in between Bondi Beach and the CBD in the beautiful leafy village of Double Bay.
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!
We now have guest Opal Travel Cards - you top it up and use it to get around. Great benefits including only $2.50 to travel all day Sunday!
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). If you have a lot of bags you can get a bus from Edgecliff to our apartment. 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 sometimes 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.
If you need to have friends or family stop by, please let us know beforehand. It is awkward coming home to strangers!
Check in/out is flexible. Unless you make prior arrangements please be prepared to check out of the room at 11am.
We are happy for you to make yourself comfortable and to feel at home. Please be respectful of our neighbours.
There is only one bathroom/toilet combo, be mindful of others when possible. This means don't spend long periods of time in there. :-)
There is a cupboard full of condiments, jams, coffee and tea. We also have muesli, oats and milk for your breakfast. Let me know if there is anything you would like that is missing!
Great place, convenient location. Easy and smooth in and out, well set up for guests.
Thank you for having us.
We had a very short stay with Btandie and Shaun but they were awesome people and very helpful! Close to some good restaurants and a short walk to the ferry that goes to circular quay.
Brandie and Shaun were very welcoming and accommodated my later arrival. The room was as it looks in the photos with a very comfy bed. We didn't see each other after the initial check in but they provided all that I needed.
Their location is extremely convenient for transport (the ferry is a short walk around the corner) and all the food places you could need are a short stroll away too
I have a great stay at brandie's place! The room is nice especially the bed. The place is not far from bondi, probably 10-20minutes ride. Brandie is a great host who will help whenever you need! Thanks for helping me especially the first night.
Brandie and Shaun were very welcoming. Brandie prepared a hand-written note and other things as described in the listing page. It was a cozy and comfortable stay for us two girls! The bed is fitted with electronic blankets and there's free wifi!
Location-wise, it's rightly situated near CBD, 10 mins walk from Edgecliff train station (4 stops away from central). The only drawback was we were carrying huge luggages and we didn't expect the walk to the apartment to be so hilly. Otherwise, the facilities and the stay was superb! Thanks for hosting! :)
We stay 2 nights at that place. We don't see them a lot but it was an amazing place to stay. We feel like home. Lovely and warm bed! It's a good place to stay to discover Sydney!
