This is the place for you if you are looking for a clean, quirky home away from home in the heart of Bondi. Our cosy spare room is all yours, filled with sunlight and just a 5 minute walk from the beach.
Our place has wooden floorboards throughout, a comfortable living room with two couches and opens out onto a small balcony with lines to hang your beach towels. The kitchen features a rustic dining table for two, new Whirlpool refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, blender and fully stocked dishes and cookware.

We live on Beach Road, which is walking distance to dozens of coffee shops & restaurants, clothing stores & grocery shops. Bondi has a really great cafe scene, so if you love your coffee, you're in the right place. Check out our guide book for all the best places in town.
Bondi is the closest beach to the city, so it's the perfect blend of two worlds. Step out of the apartment & moments later you'll find yourself sinking your feet into warm white sand. Alternatively hop a bus & you can be gazing at the Opera House & Harbour Bridge in no time.
We love meeting people from all over the world & hearing your stories. We enjoy hosting short stays up to 1 month for people on holiday/vacation/business/study, etc.

Interaction with Guests
Steve and Christine are freelance film production professionals. Sometimes we are working from home on our next project and sometimes are are away on set for 12 hour days. It changes from week to week. We pretty much let you have your space if you are seeking some peace & quiet but are on hand for any advice you might need.
Bondi is the best beach in Sydney. Stunning blue water, powder fine sand and hours of sunshine. We love it here and all of our visitors do too. Once you've had enough sunshine, there's plenty to do beyond the waves. Bondi has a dozen small coffee shops where you can sample an Aussie "Flat White" or have a beautiful brunch. Or refresh & revive at one of the neighbourhood's juice bars. For retail therapy, there's several streets with cute boutiques for unique clothes & homewares. After hours, visit a local wine bar for a bite to eat & a chat.
Buses to the city are a 5 minute walk from the apartment & we include a map of the bus stops. The bus ride to the city centre (Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens, MCA, etc) takes about 40 minutes. Alternatively, you can catch a bus to Bondi Junction train station (15 minutes) and then catch a train into the city (10 minutes). Bondi Junction has lots of restaurants and the giant Westfield Shopping Centre has loads of shops and a movie theatre. Everyone who stays with us has found the buses & trains easy to navigate. The apartment is 30 minutes by car/taxi or 1.5 hours via public transport from the Sydney Airport (domestic & international terminals)

We really liked the apartment and especially the way, Christine and Steve decorated it. Also, the balcony was perfect for having breakfast outside. Our room was quite small for two persons with lots of lugagge but that was ok, as we did not spend too much time there. The place was really close to Bondi Beach and we highly recommend it if someone is looking for a pretty place close to the beach and to bars and hip restaurants for a few days. Our hosts were uncomplicated and nice.
Steve and Christine were very receptive. The apartment was very organized and had a good environment. Also it was close to the beach and easy access. We enjoyed staying there!
This was our first stay on out trip to Australia and was perfect!
The location is amazing with Bondi and Watson's Bay on your doorstep.
The flat is great and has all of the amenities as described with a great kitchen, bathroom and wifi.
Steve and Christine were fantastic hosts they accommodated an early check in for us and were always very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
We would strongly recommend for others to stay here and enjoy feeling part of the real Bondi.
Thanks for a perfect start to our trip! Jonty and Liz
We enjoyed our stay at Christine and Steve's place. They were very welcoming. The room and place was as described. We would recommend their place to others.
The perfect bondi experience! The house is so cozy, conveniently located, and well taken care!!! The whole stay was better than we hoped for. The hosts were amazing and always worried with our comfort.
Appartement easy to reach with the bus (about 40min from Sydney downtown), everything was ready when we arrived. Steve is very nice and interesting. He gave us lots of tips for the rest of our journey.
Grocery stores are at the corner.
The room is nice but really small! Even with the storage space, one need to be very organized to avoid chaos;)
Christine and Steve were very welcoming and were able to help with anything that we wanted to know. There are loads of restaurants and bars in the area and of course the very quick walk to the beach was ideal! The apartment was very nice, and the room had everything you need in there. It was a lovely experience for us both at the end of our travels. Thank you very much. Best wishes Tom and Holli
Christine and Steve. She is American and he is Canadian. And they are both awesome. :)
They met in London & drifted to Sydney where they've been for the last 4 years. They make films & dream big!
