About This Listing
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!

The apartment was in a good location close to the main street in Randwick. It was nice and clean and Kerryn was a very friendly host.
Staying at Kerryn's flat was really nice. Location is top, room is quite and nice, living and kitchen room offer everything needed. Kerryn and her boyfriend are very nice flat mates and therefore make the stay even nicer :-) highly recommended!
Kerryn and Brent were friendly and accommodating in their lovely little unit. The room is perfect for those who want to spend their time exploring the city, with nearby bus stops, and the beach only a 10minute walk away. Kerryn's decorating and personal touches made the room feel like a home rather than just a place to stay.
I would happily return to stay in the future!
Kerry also provided great transport instructions and directions to the unit - I didn't get lost!
Highly recommended accommodation if you appreciate friendly and helpful hosts, comfortable accommodation, very clean, quiet neighbourhood and convenient location. Made my few days in Sydney much easier to get on with business staying in such a great place with great people..Many thanks..Linda
Kerry and Brent were really nice people. I felt like at home during my stay in Sydney. The place is located in a very convenient spot near shops, public transport and the uni of NSW. I recommend this place for anyone visiting Sydney.
Kerryn and Brent were lovely hosts and flatmates, whose warm manner and generosity made me feel really welcome. I was in Sydney for a conference in Coogee and their place was a lovely 25-minute walk from the venue, a great way to start the day while seeing a little of the area.

About the Host, Kerryn
I am a kiwi living in Sydney, a city which I love! I have done a lot of travelling over the last 10 years so I know how nice it is to have the comforts of home when I'm away.
I love to cook, and entertain friends, head to the beach for a swim, and like ot relax at the end of the day with a glass of red wine.
I am very easy going and would love to make my home available to others who want to spend some time in this great city.
