The Space

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 is a lovely host. She is very easy to communicate with and very accommodating. She had prepared for us a map and given us all the details to navigate the public transport system.

    Her flat is very clean and full of interesting magazines and artsy pictures.

    The flat is a few minutes from the bus station.

  • I really enjoyed to stay with Kerryn and Brent. Not only they were extremely kind and friendly, they were warming hear people. They hosted everyone by heart and pretty circumspective to take care of people. I tried my best to express how I felt from them. Pls enjoy yourself there.

  • Apartment was in a great location for us both work wise, easy access to city via bus, also close to the beach if wanted.

    Didn't see much of Kerryn due to us all working which couldn't be helped.

    Shower was a bit hit and miss whether it would stay hot.

    All in all a good stay,

    A great spot for a trip to Sydney!

  • Kerryn was kind enough to let us stay in her flat while she was away on holiday. Dealing with her was efficient and effortless prior to arrival and she made sure we could get the keys easily an left us a nice letter and info about busses and the area. Her place is neat and tidy and our room was perfect for what we needed with enough clean bedding and natural light. The only thing that bothered is the lack of shelf/hanging space, but we managed just living from our backpacks on the floor. We only saw her the last night and a bit, but Kerryn is a lovely person and easy-going. We'd recommend staying with her any time.

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.
