The Space

Stay in a gorgeous light-filled apartment in tranquil and convenient Glebe.

The apartment has golden wood floors throughout, ornate high ceilings, and light and air pouring in from three sides. Views are lush and green.

Separate kitchen with Gaggia semi-automatic espresso machine, Asko dishwasher, gas range, ice cream maker, and spacious refrigerator. Carbon steel skillets, enamel pots, good knives, restaurant quality serviceware...

There is a large dining table for dinner parties, spacious studio for yoga with good quality mirrors, yoga mats, and some pilates props. There is a small outdoor area with an airy, leafy outlook to sit and drink coffee in the morning or wine at night. There is no television.

The building has a washing machine and outdoor drying lines. As is common in Australia, people dry their laundry in the fresh air. There are two professional laundry shops within 2 blocks, should you need services.

The apartment is a 2 bedroom, so you will be sharing the kitchen and bath with one other person.

The bedroom is spacious with high ceilings, wood floor and a leafy view. Comfortable bed with feather pillows, feather duvet, and soft sheets.

The location is one block from the corner of Bridge Rd and Glebe Point Rd, where there is a constant flow of buses 431/433 that will take you to Central Station (10min), continuing all the way to Circular Quay (25min). These buses run late, so you will never need to take a taxi to get home. There is also bus 370 that will take you to Newtown (10min), continuing all the way to Coogee Beach (45min). A pretty little 5 block walk takes you to the Glebe stop for the Light Rail system, which is very pleasant to use and will take you to Darling Harbor, Convention and Exhibition Centers, The Fish Market, Pyrmont, Chinatown, and Central Station.

The corner of Bridge and Glebe Point hosts an excellent small supermarket providing organic and conventional versions of everything you need and a very popular fruit and vegetable market which doesn't sell organic, but does sell fresh local produce. There is an excellent fishnchips that serves fresh grilled fish alongside the classic preparations.

The apartment overlooks two parks, one with public tennis courts. 10 minutes walk South takes you to Victoria Park with a large public swimming pool. Walking north the same time takes you to Jubilee Park and a long harbor walk. There are numerous adorable pocket parks in all directions, so you can take your pick with your morning coffee. There is an excellent breakfast place two blocks away, The Astor, and a fabulous fine dining restaurant, The Glebe Point Diner, along with a several each of Thai, Vietnamese, Arab, and Chinese restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk.

You are 10 minutes walk from Sydney University, and the Seymour Performing Arts Center. 20 minutes walk from the Carraigeworks Museum and Performing Arts Center, which hosts Sydney's finest farmers' market every Saturday morning.

The Neighborhood

2 blocks away: Local produce shop, deli with good quality Italian imports and local artisan products, IGA with organic staples. Several great cafés.

Getting around

Bus 370 picks you up two blocks away and takes you all the way to Coogee Beach. Buses 431 and 433 pick you up two blocks away and take you all the way through the central city to the Rocks/Opera House. Light rail takes you to Darling Harbor, Convention Center and ChinaTown.

  • We enjoyed our stay in Violet's apartment. The room is nice and bright, the kitchen well equipped. The extra room was great for doing yoga (mat provided!). Great bakery /coffee shop just round the corner. Bookstores, etc in walking distance. Bus station is very close, so it's easy to get around the city starting from here.

    Response from Violet:

    Ordinarily, the flat is cleaned between guests. In this case, the booking was made last-minute and the guest also failed to communicate an arrival time making it difficult to manage the arrangements for departure of the previous guest and cleaning.
