Great Apt in Redfern City Fringe

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Bourke St, Redfern, NSW 2016, Australia

The Space

Stay on the fringe of the CBD, great fully furnished apartment with comfortable, firm queen size bed, Plenty of storage space. Good size bathroom with bath/shower & vanity, internal laundry, fully functional kitchen (with dishwasher, gas top stove & microwave) and a comfy lounge & dining area. Wi-Fi access, 40” HD TV. Sit on the 7th floor balcony and have a cuppa or a glass of wine and enjoy the view back to the city overlooking Edward Resch park.

The area: The bustling trendy cusp of East Redfern and Waterloo. Perfectly situated between the city and the beach. There is a supermarket right on the doorstep and plenty of great cafes, restaurants and take away food places. Dank St is one block away and has great cafes and galleries. It’s a short cab ride from the airport – domestic & international. The Entertainment Quarter with its cinema complex and markets is a 20 minute walk away through Moore Park.

The City Centre is 4ks away, buses are 1 block away and take you through the city down to Circular Quay & The Opera House. It is a 20 – 30 min walk to Hyde Park but that depends on whether you walk down Crown St Surry Hills and how many of the fantastic shops and cafes you stop at on the way.

For those of you who like to keep fit while on holiday, the complex has a 25m outdoor pool with plenty of room around it for sunbathing, there is a gym next to the pool and for the joggers amongst you, the apartment is right next to Moore Park and a 10 minute run to the stunning Centennial Park. And just a short walk to Moore Park Golf Course & driving range.

24 hour security and there is nearly almost always parking available within the complex (almost always) The apartment is west facing and can get very warm on hot summer late afternoons, there is no air con but there are block out blinds and fans. Also there are screens on all the windows and balcony to keep out those pesky mosquitoes.

I rent out my apartment when I travel and as of Dec 2013 have no travel plans for 2014 (yet). There is a possibility that I can rent out my place for short term stays (mid week being easier) and I can stay with friends. If you are looking for something for a few days, message me, I may be able to assist. Cheers

  • Barry is a great and thoughtful host of a very nice, clean and well located condo. I loved the place and the supermarket nearby. I highly recommend you consider this for a couple or an individual. Don't let Redfern name confuse you or frighten you off; this is a classy neigborhood.

  • I rented out Barry apartment for 5 nights for my grandmother while she was in town, and couldn't have been happier with my choice. Barry's apartment is lovely and clean (the photos don't really do it justice) and is very conveniently located close transport, shops etc. Barry was absolutely lovely to deal with and everything went smoothly. He even kindly let me take a look at the apartment before my grandmother's arrival so I knew exactly where to take her. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Sydney!

  • Barry has a beautiful and comfortable and safe apartment that was very well located. The apartment had all the necessities, including washer and dryer which made my stay very enjoyable. I was also able to go grocery shopping and visit the coffee shops and restaurants in the area. Barry is an amazing host, he provided all the information I needed for my stay, he was helpful and very courteous. I would highly recommend Barry's apartment.

  • Fantastic apartment - Barry was wonderful to communicate with and the whole weekend went smoothly. Apartment was clean and tidy - there was a very helpful guide book left in the apartment to help get around the area and make use of everything in the apartment. Would definitely recommend Barry's place in Sydney.

  • Great apartment in a very convenient location! Everything you need is in your doorstep, great selection of restaurants, cafés and shop all within walking distance. No issues with parking in the complex and the information pack was great to provide you with everything you need to know about the area.

    Barry is a great host, warm and friendly, made our stay very easy, even with a 15month old child. I would recommend this place to anyone and would defiantly stay here again.

    Thanks Barry it was a pleasure!

  • This was a great base for my time in Sydney. Barry is warm and generous and very easy to deal with. The apartment is in a good, relatively quiet location and has all the things you could need - including Barry's thorough information pack on the local area. The place was very clean, user friendly, homely and relaxing. The pictures on airbnb website are very true to life.

    I was always able to find parking at the apartment, and was able to walk to most places I needed to go. The apartment was very convenient and well positioned for my needs, however the apartment is not really close to Redfern station - although there are buses close by.

    I enjoyed the little balcony a lot, the comfy couches, bed and great shower.

    Would recommend this place to anyone and will stay there again if possible next time I'm in Sydney. Thanks Barry!
