Description

The Space

The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. It is close to :
-The restaurants and old pubs of The Rocks (5 mins walk)
-Harbour bridge climb (5 mins walk)
-Sydney CBD (10 mins walk)
-Circular Quay (10 mins walk)
- Barangaroo Headland Park (2 mins walk)

The Apartment
The apartment is spacious and on two levels. It is a lovely 100 year old building with modern bathroom and kitchen. The main living room, kitchen, courtyard and one toilet are downstairs. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, a second living room, the main bathroom and a balcony. The balcony is off the second bedroom and living room and has views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city skyline. There is a deck off the main bed room, at the back of the building.

The bedrooms are clean with crisp white cotton sheets on the queen bed (main bedroom) and double bed (2nd bedroom), clean towels, hanging space and drawers/shelves. There is free unlimited wifi, full kitchen facilities, a tv, dvd, hair dryer. Free use of laundry front load washer and dryer.

There is also a café nearby with good coffee and food if you'd like something more.

The apartment is over two levels. While the stairs are no steeper than normal and have a handrail, it may not suitable for someone with mobility problems or has problems with stairs.

A Truly Spectacular Part of Sydney
The Rocks is Australia's oldest neighbourhood, being the original location of the British penal colony. It became a thriving maritime area during the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Many of the original houses, pubs and shops are still standing. These days it is a charming, leafy neighbourhood right on the doorstep of the city and all of it's attractions, including nearby restaurants and bars. Sydney's oldest pub, The Lord Nelson, is our local where they brew their own beer on site and serve up a great meal too. Take a stroll through the cobblestone laneways of The Rocks or up to the park in nearby Observatory Hill and take in the great view of the harbour!
The Barangaroo Headland Park opened recently and is a great place to chill out by the harbour or let the kids play on the grass.
It's also a lovely spot to come home and get away for the pace of the city. Wander around the streets and try not to fall in love with this place.

Public Transport
If you're not much into walking, there is a bus stop 50 metres away with regular buses to the CBD, Town Hall Station and Central Railway Station. Hailing a taxi from my front door is easy and takes no time at all for one to come past. To get to and from the airport there is the regular Airport Link train leaving from Circular Quay station or a taxi takes about 25 mins (depending on traffic).

The place will be clean and beds made up when you arrive. After that you won't get your bed made on a daily basis or apartment cleaned while you stay. If you are staying for more than a week, we can arrange a weekly cleaner at an extra cost but you will need to request this.

Check in time is 2pm. We may be able to arrange a bag drop / check in earlier, but we need to make those arrangements well in advance. So, if the 2pm check in time isn't your preference, please talk to me about it before you make your reservation.

Check out time is 10:50am.

If you have a baby, I can provide a portable cot for a total cost of $30 (one payment for full stay). This is additional to house rental price and you would need to advise me a few days beforehand of your requirement.
