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!

The entire apartmant

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.

We had a lovely stay with Primrose, she was very helpful, giving good advice about all the attractions around Sydney. We loved the fact that we could wake up with such a lovely view. Thank you again

What a spot, combined with Prim's hospitality, makes for a great base to stay in Sydney. Warm friendly hospitality, good information and advice, along with availability of a travel card, helps to make your stay enjoyable and fruitful without having to worry about boring logistics. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

Fantastic location to start exploring Sydney and the Bays!!, Primrose went out of her way for us !! We've loved it here, despite some rain, Opal cards are a great way to use the public transport which I have to say is fab!! Primrose even has those for you when you arrive, all you do is top them up as you go, and not forgetting Humphrey....... a very spoilt adorable cat ! Xx

Primrose is a lovely host, who will attend to every need you could have. The apartment has the best location and we used the ferries for all transport to the city. Will highly recommend if you like sunny mornings on a balcony at waterfront

What a lovely, art nouveau apartment! It was extremely light and airy with lots of interesting features and it must have some of the best views in Double Bay. It is in a great location, being right on the waterfront with the ferry, restaurants, cafes and boutique style shops all within a few minutes walk. Primrose was a great host - she is very knowledgeable of the area, made us feel right at home and was great fun to talk to . As stated in the details, there are quite a lot of steps to get up to the apartment but once the cases were safely installed we didn't have a problem with them. The apartment is very secure and has its own jetty which is lovely to enjoy a glass of wine on in the evening. We also loved Humphrey, the resident Burmese cat, who is full of character and does a very good tour! We would go back there tomorrow!

Primrose was delightful! We would highly recommend her home if you are looking for a peaceful place with amazing views of the water. Public transportation (train, bus, ferry, etc) were easily accessible from her home! If you decide to rent a car, be advised that parking may be difficult at times. We would recommend the public transportation over a rental car... Primrose was incredibly helpful with advising us on the best routes! She was friendly, kind, and very helpful with our stay! We loved our time in Sydney! :)

Primrose's generous spirit made our stay in Double Bay very special. Her local knowledge was invaluable and made our meandering through the neighbourhood easy and meaningful. Every morning we had our breakfast on the terrace enjoying the wonderful view of Double Bay and its surroundings. The location is great, walking distance to great restaurants, shops and the ferry terminal. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we plan to return soon.
