light and airy spacious apartment. Smell the fresh sea air. Swim off your own private jetty. Celebrity watch in Double Bay, cafes, restaurants, they are all at your doorstep. Jump on a ferry and see where you end up.
Welcome to Sydney!
I have a beautiful large sunny room to let in my apartment in Double Bay in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. The apartment is in a small secure block of 3 and is located right on the edge of the harbour. The room is large with garden and harbour views, through 2 walls of large windows and very quiet and private. You will go to sleep with the gentle lapping of the water and wake up with cheeky rainbow lorrikeets and sometimes a curious kookaburra...
Double Bay is a beautiful suburb with great shopping, reataurants, pubs, and all amenities. It is a very safe area with lovely parks and beaches. There is a ferry almost at the doorstep (city is approximately 9 minutes) and bus and train very close by. The airport is a 20 minute drive.
The room is equipped with a queen size very comfortable bed (including pure cotton linen and bath towels) flat screen tv, dvd. You are welcome to use the kitchen if you would like to cook. You will have your own fridge stocked with breakfast essentials including tea and coffee. I treat guests like friends, but also respect your privacy. Sometimes there will be impromptu drinks on our private jetty to watch the sun go down on another beautiful Sydney day.
One thing to think about... there are quite a few steps to my apartment, no lift access. I am always happy to assist with baggage too.
Thanks and look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with Guests
I live at the property. I will greet you and show you around. I enjoy chatting with my guests and try to help out with any queries you may have. I enjoy company and also respect privacy. I have lived in the area all my life so have a good knowledge of the area and surrounds.
I have a great transport service which is $40, which is cheaper than a taxi and about the same cost as the train and ferry. I am happy to book it for you.
Boutiques,Cafes, restaurants, galleries, beaches, walks, parks all at the door step. What more is there??
Ferry virtually at the door, 9 minutes to the city. Bus a 5 minute walk away and the train station is a 10 minute walk.
There are few house rules. Please come and go quietly so as not to disturb other residents.
Shut and lock your windows. Turn off fans, heaters etc.
Primrose was a delightful hostess. Her apartment was in a beautiful location, exactly as described. Staying with Primrose was like staying with a friend, she shared her home completely and made you feel at ease immediately. She was very generous with her time and her wine! Nothing was too much trouble, she even took us into town to collect our hire car. Humphrey, her gorgeous cat,was very friendly too and was very happy to be made a fuss of. Thanks Primrose.
Best Location One can imagine! The ferry is very close and we had breakfast at the lovely "indigo". If you dont want to go out for breakfast enjoy the breakfast at primroses Terrace with a fantastic view! Primrose is a lovely host and was very helpful. You couldnt probably find a nicer host!
Unfortunately the Interior is quite old and needs a refurbishment!
Wow! The views from Primrose's apartment are fantastic. Breakfast outside on the deck was a great experience. We loved it. Added to that was a very comfy bed and a very peaceful neighbourhood. Complete bliss.
Primrose herself was a terrific host. Lots of useful information on local travel and just generally a nice person. To give one example she made us aware of the spectator boat which accompanied the local sailing club when they were racing in Sydney Harbour. We booked this and had three wonderful hours out on the water.
Summing up the location is perfect and Primrose couldn't do enough to smooth things along. Recommended to everyone. One point to mention there are several steps up to her apartment so bear that in mind if you are booking, but then again talk to Primrose. I am sure she will come up with a way to help
One last point was that Primrose organised a shuttle service at a very keen price to get us to the airport. A very reliable driver and an added service that I would also recommend.
It is such a great thing that meeting Primrose and her beautiful house during our honeymoon in Australia. The place is just near the ferry and you can have a very wonderful view just by standing on the balcony.Primrose is a very nice person who gives us a lot information about travelling around the city and we are so in love with her little cute cat Humphrey! Hope to see you again~^^Highly recommended!
Primrose is a generous, unfussy host who made me feel right at home. She already had my transport card ready and helped me navigate the ferry into town, which leaves 200 meters from her place. The guest room is large and bright, and has a view of the bay through the palm trees. Bed is comfy, area very quiet. As her place is hard to find, Primrose kindly arranged airport pickup with a reliable service (cheaper than a cab). I had a marvelous, relaxing week sitting on the deck, semillon in hand, watching the lorikeets, seagulls and bats. Highly recommended.

Our stay with Primrose was wonderful. First of all it is important to mention that Primrose was excellent even prior to arrii. With helping on a couple of things always replying promptly.
The best of all at Primroses was waking up and sitting on her stunning terrace. Wonderful way to start the day right on the water. Just priceless.buf you want to be a little out of the touristy spot and take a 10min ferry to get there this place is the best. We loved every minute and more importantly Primroses wonderful hospitality
We had an absolutley wonderful stay at Primrose's appartmanet. The view from her terrace is amazing, its close to the ferry and you can even walk to the city center. She was very helpful, picked us up at the train station and arranged cheap airport transport for us. My highest recommendation!
