☀ ABOUT THE LOCATION:
Rich with local history, culture and sophistication, Potts Point is an ideal place to stay or visit. Situated within Sydney City, just a short 20-minute walk to the CBD and a stone's throw from Kings Cross Railway Station, so you can easily catch a train to some of Sydney's beaches major attractions. Sydney Buses, taxis and Car Share / Hire are also readily available in the immediate vicinity.

☺ PERSONAL SAFETY?
We live in the area with our six-year-old daughter, as does many young families these days. Macleay Street has gentrified over the last 10 years, and Potts Point is one of the most on-trend and affluent areas of Sydney. The area is highly populated and using simple common sense it's easy to stay safe.

♻ CAR SHARE IS AVAILABLE!
Forget normal car rentals. Highly recommended and right outside the front door are two "GoGet" car-share "pods" and there are more than 20 GoGet cars within a two-minute walk. No need to worry about parking when you get back to the apartment if you sign up for these share cars - parking is free! Foreign licences are accepted, we will give you the address for the information pack and activation card. You should register before you leave home. Search for GoGet Car Share Sydney. Look for the FAQ's.

♕ EATING OUT?
Dozens of restaurants, cafes and bars are on your doorstep. There's plenty happening in the area, and some of Sydney's best restaurants are a short walk (Otto - at the Finger Wharf, or Macleay Street Bistro, down the road, just two examples). One of Sydney's best new cafes (Room 10 - Voted in SMH Good Cafe Guide) is 10m from your door, and there are loads of great places to eat and drink nearby.
Wilbur’s Place (100m) and Bourke Street Bakery (200m) are just around the corner. You’re also just a short walk to the Italian hub of Stanley street; a 20 min walk into the city, via the Domain and Hyde Park; a 20 minute walk (or less) to trendy Surry Hills. I’ll leave you a list of my favourite eating spots on check in.

♨ COOKING IN?
The apartment is 100 metres from the excellent Harris Farm supermarket (or there's an even bigger supermarket within 200metres); and there's a Farmers’ Market every Saturday only 80m walk away. I'll also leave the kitchen all set up with oil, vinegar, etc. so you can just focus on the main ingredients.

There's even a high-end caterer - "Sides & Main" - on your street, selling gourmet meals from their shop-front, so if you are too lazy to cook but want to eat in. Too easy.

♬ NIGHTLIFE?
Everyone knows neighbouring Kings Cross is famous for nightlife, but you may NOT know that its areas (Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Woollomoolloo and East Sydney) include some of Sydney's best areas to eat and drink in, all within a 5 minute walk. There are lots of hip small bars in the area - including on fabulous Llankelly Place, just near your building.
You can also walk 10 minutes to Oxford Street clubs, or just 20 minutes into the centre of Sydney (Rocks, Circular Quay, etc.). I'll give you plenty of tips on arrival.

If you like your nightlife more serene Govindas lounge cinema is about 5 minutes up the road, the Old Fitzroy Pub (so much character!) has a cheap theatre attached, and a great vibe. There are also numerous other local theatres and cinemas within walking distance. (I’ll leave you a few suggestions for all of this on check in).

ⓘ SIGHTSEEING?
Walk to Hyde Park or the Botanic Gardens; the Opera House (probably 30 minutes, via Hyde Park and the Botanic Gardens); or short bus/train to Bondi Beach or other eastern suburbs beaches. Potts Point is in Sydney’s centre, but has easy access to beaches, the famous Bondi-Bronte walk, and Sydney harbour (I’ll leave you tips with my favourite picnic spots and nearby walks).

✐ WORKING?
Walk into the city, so easy! Potts Point is walking distance to George Street and the main centre of Sydney. The apartment is also about 15 minutes walk UNSW’s College of Fine Arts on Oxford Street, a quick bus to UNSW, easy commute to University of Sydney. The apartment is 10 minute walk to St Vincents’ Hospital. There's unlimited wireless internet in the apartment so getting online is no problem.

☍ GYM'S, YOGA & PILATES?
The apartment is located on the same street as P.E. Dept Gym and Fitness First is 5 minutes away. There are also a few boutique Yoga and Pilates classes in the local area. Just tell us what you want to do and we will advise you on some of the options.

⚠ PLEASE NOTE:
⇒ The Potts Point apartment IS up three levels of stairs. That's 60 steps in total folks. No problem for healthy adults (whoever checks you in will be happy to assist you with bags), but just letting you know...

⇒ Washing machine and dryer one level up in building (coin operated). Plus I've installed a great drying rack in the bathroom in case you want to handwash anything.

⇒ Yes, there IS a hairdryer!
⇒ iMac Computer is provided with ADSL2+ WiFi internet, of course!
⇒ Also unlimited free local calls available on the land-line telephone.

⇒ If you require extra bedding for the sofa bed and you are not paying for a third guest, a there is a one-time $20 surcharge for the additional laundry charges we incur. One-time and not per night. We ask guests to leave $20 on the table for our cleaners who manages the laundry services.

⇒ The extra bedding set for the 3rd guest comprises of 1 x flat sheet + 1 x fitted sheet + 1 duvet cover + 1 x duvet + 2 x pillow covers and pillows. There are also a couple of soft blankets to put under and and over the bedding for extra comfort.

⇒ The location is superb, but the Kings Cross area IS busy on a Friday/Saturday night. This is an action-packed part of town; one reason it's great to stay here. While the apartment itself is quiet, and I doubt you'll ever hear the neighbours, you might hear some noise from the street at night on the weekends. I think the location is totally worth it, but forewarned is forearmed, so they say!

⇒ Cars - Parking is available nearby but is a hassle, and it's expensive. Car rental locations are close by and GoGet car-share is easy and available close by. Locals walk everywhere or use the buses and trains - the location is so central this is easy. If you have a car I'll give you tips on where to park long term, and it's less than 5 minutes walk away. Kings Cross train station is only 300m walk away from the apartment.

⇒ There are windows, but sorry, no view. Although, this place is so close to the city you can see the Harbour Bridge from the laundry room (see, washing IS worthwhile), and Centerpoint tower from Orwell Street outside. However you don't need them through a window - they're just walking distance away!

  • We enjoyed our stay at this Potts Point apartment. It was very clean, tidy and equipped with everything we needed. Location was great and Charlotte and Chris communicated well and provided us with all the information we needed - great hosts. Highly recommended.

    April 2014
  • We stayed in Potts Point for a Friday through Monday and loved every minute of it. My wife and I thought the apartment was perfect - great location, very airy and bright, super clean and stocked with everything we needed. Charlotte was accommodative even as we had a last minute change in our plans. The loaner mobile phone was clutch! Would definitely recommend to someone.

    April 2014
  • My family and I had a pleasant stay at this apartment. Charlotte was quick in responding to my emails prior to my trip and Chris was also patient as we were lost on our way there and ended up close to half an hour late.

    This apartment comes well-quipped with cooking utensils and other amenities. Great for those who might like to whip up a meal or two instead of eating out. You can also find a Farmers' Market just 1-min away on Saturdays.

    Would gladly recommend it to friends if they are visiting Sydney.

    March 2014
  • My daughter and I stayed at Charlotte's place during our recent visit to Sydney from the states. Charlotte and her husband were both great communicators, and arranged to meet us for a very late check-in, given our flight times. The location is awesome, and just a couple of blocks from the train line to all the places you might want to head to from the apartment. Potts Point and Kings Cross are both fun local neighborhoods and the alleyway around the corner has all the food you'll ever want in all of Sydney. The place was clean and they had lots of little extras for guests. We especially appreciated additional plug adaptors so we could charge everything up at once. There is a laundry facility one flight up and it was great to have a chance to do a load of laundry before heading out on the next leg of our Australian vacation! I recommend the place to anyone visiting Sydney! Thanks Charlotte!

    March 2014
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Charlotte's Potts Point apartment which we found to be very clean & well presented. We were met by Chris upon our arrival & he provided us with lots of useful information. They have obviously given a great deal of thought into what travellers need when staying in an apartment away from home.

    March 2014
  • Charlotte and Chris were great hosts! Great communication and wonderful apartment. We highly recommend them for a stay in Sydney!

    March 2014
  • Charlotte and Chris have a great appartement to stay. They provide everything you need (and more). Excellent location near restaurants and the city. Or to explore Sydney surroundings.
    Communication and advice over the city with them are excellent!
    We loved our stay! And can realy recommend this appartement.

    March 2014
  • Thank you Charlotte and Chris for making our stay in Sydney perfect. The apartment was everything we could have wished for.

    The Potts Point neighborhood was nice and lively with all the amazing restaurants, trendy coffee shops and just a short walk to the lovely Rushcutter's Bay. We also really loved Harris Farm Markets just around the corner and visited there almost daily on our six-week stay.

    Communication with Chris and Charlotte was super easy. They really put in extra effort to make us feel like home in the apartment. Highly recommended!

    February 2014
  • This appartment was perfect for us, we stayed there with our 4 years old son. It was clean and very comfortable and the location is just great. We met Chris for the keys and he was very friendly and helpful with many tips for the appartment as well as for the surroundings. We would definetely stay there again!

    January 2014
  • It is difficult to add anything new to all of the other reviews. The apartment was spotless and everything was exactly as described. We arrived on a day when Charlotte and family were on their own holiday and yet our arrival was looked after easily. The directions to the unit from the airport were excellent (even for jet-lagged tourists) and the maps and suggestions left in the apartment were detailed and very welcome.
    I accidently left my Kindle in the apartment and even before I knew it was missing we had a message that it was found and would be mailed to us. That is service!
    We will stay here again.
