Welcome to Randwick!
I have a great room available in my art deco apartment in Randwick which is just a 10 minute walk from Coogee Beach! It’s on a quiet street and 5 minutes’ walk to Randwick Junction – which is a transport hub for the area and has all the shops you need for a holiday – food, bottle stores, chemists, newsagent, banks, cafes and a huge selection of great (and cheap) restaurants.
The room is small but really warm and sunny, with drawer space and a super comfy sofa bed. It's perfect for a girl/guy travelling alone or a couple on a budget - I am well travelled so know how nice it is to be able to have some personal space after weeks or months of travelling, this is your chance to be able to spread youself out for a few days!
The lounge features a TV/DVD and ipod dock, along with a dining table and chairs, and two large comfy sofas - perfect for chilling out on to watch dvds!. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need and theres a washing machine (no dryer unfortunately) but over summer clothes dry super quickly on the line in the back yard (very safe) or there is a laundry five minutes away who are cheap. The bathroom is clean with a great high pressure shower!
There is no parking with the apartment, but there is plenty of street parking in the area. The apartment is located just five minutes from Randwick Junction which has regular buses to the city, Central Station, Airport, Coogee and Bondi Junction, so a car really isn’t needed to stay here. Coogee Beach and Centennial Park is a short 10 minute walk away, as is the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick.
It costs just $4.50 to get to Randwick on the 400 bus from the airport, and there are also regular buses to Central Station by bus (372, 376). It’s an easy walk to Coogee Beach but there are also buses (374, 373) and various buses to Bondi Junction (phone number hidden)). The city is just a short bus ride (around 20 – 30 minutes depending on traffic) on the 373 and 377 buses.
Randwick Racecourse is a 15 minute walk away. There are several excellent restaurants at the end of the street, along with at The Spot which is 10 minutes’ walk. It also features the cute Randwick Ritz Cinema, which is an art deco theatre and just $12 for adults ($8 on a Tuesday!).
Randwick is a great location for exploring the Eastern Suburbs and Sydney. There is the Coogee to Bondi Walk which takes around 1 ½ - 2 hours to walk and has stunning views of the coastline. Coogee is full of great cafes and restaurants including the Coogee Bay Hotel which has one of the best garden bars to be found!
Surroundings areas such as Newtown, Surry Hill and Paddington are all easily accessible from here.
I provide breakfast - toast, cereal, tea, coffee (plunger and stovetop), fresh milk and all the basics you need for a stay. I love to cook, so if you are desperate for a home cooked meal, I am happy to whip something up!
Please note that I do not have internet however the cafe at the end of the street has wifi. They have delicious coffee and are open till late every night!

Kerryn has a wonderfully located apartment that is warm and welcoming, as she is. It was a delight to stay and I recommend this pick on Air BnB
We enjoyed our stay at Kerryns place. Kerryn was very helpful and accommodating. Kerryn was happy to leave us to our own devices and we didn't see much of each other. The apartment is in a great location between the city and the beaches.
Thankyou Kerryn for all the help and advice you gave us! Was lovely meeting you and staying at your home :)
Kerryn was very helpful. Her appartment was clean and ideal.
Our stay with Kerryn was great. She is very helpful and friendly and made sure we had all the information we needed in order to get to see everything we were interested in. We enjoyed our stay in Kerryn's home and were very comfortable there. It was nice and clean and tidy and central to everything. We would definitely happily stay there again as it suited us perfectly!
Kerryn's cozy home was a wonderful island for us.We enjoyed it so much.The connection to the city and the beach is so easy from there.Kerryn helped us on all our steps inSydney. She surprised us with her great hospitality.Thanks for all.
Staying at Kerryn's place was great. The whole apartment is so well arranged. The room is pretty big for two people and serves enough privacy if you don´t want to go out to explore the wonderful city or the close beaches. Kerryn cares alot for her guests and has many things to tell what to visit. But her favorites are the beaches I guess. Only fifteen minutes walk to Coogee beach. From there it is about an hour to Bronte and Bondi beach along the beautiful coast walk track. We really enjoyed our stay.
It was very clean room and queit.
And closed Bus stop convenience store.
I come back again
Kerryn is a friendly host, and the room is spacious. Cute appartment in a good location. Had a great stay:)
My wife and I thought our room was a lovely space, and Kerryn was such a gracious host. We would totally stay at her place again.
