About this listing
Situated 10 mins walk from Bondi Beach & within reach of King's Cross/the city, this art-filled apartment is a great base from which to explore Sydney's attractions. The private Queen-sized room overlooks a courtyard garden, making it a zen haven.
As well as being near the beach, the apartment is close to several bus stops and only 10 minutes from Bondi Junction train station, so it's easy to reach the city or to explore the best of Sydney including the Blue Mountains.
In a quiet and convenient spot, with all activities of Bondi within walking distance, it's a great spot to chill out in Sydney’s gorgeous eastern suburbs.
Guests have access to a private double room, with a queen sized bed and built in wardrobes. Offering lots of space and privacy, the room overlooks a courtyard garden so you might glimpse a flower if the timing is right. Fresh linen and towels are provided, as well as some recommendations as to what is on around town.
Bondi is Australia's most famous beach, and a fantastic place to surf, dive, swim or snorkel, or simply take in the breathtaking sea views that Sydney's Eastern Suburbs are famous for.
Bondi also has fantastic food and nightlife. There are great restaurants, take away, a wine shop and delis within a few minutes’ walk up the road, as well as relaxing massage and other amenities to accommodate the weary traveller.

The beach is a 10 minute walk away and public transport (bus, train) is also close by for getting to the Junction or city. A ricketty but roadworthy bicycle is also available for guest use.
Other Things to Note
A one year old puppy named Dashiell lives here. He is very friendly and house trained. He is also hypoallergenic and shed-less, so good for people with allergies. He is not supposed to go into the guest bedroom.
A laundry with washer and dryer is available for use. Free WiFi is also on premises.
I work Monday to Friday in communications but interior design is my main passion. I am a long time yogi so can give you tips if that is of interest - there are some of the world's best teachers in Sydney. Otherwise, I like to chill out with a swim, hanging out or eating (I love food) so I can give you tips on where to eat or drink if that is an interest for you too.
No smoking on premises please, although you can go out to the back garden if you pick up and dispose of your butts.
It is a quiet building so we aim for general consideration towards the other residents of the block, so no parties or washing / drying after 10pm. No additional guests allowed without permission.
I try to be environmentally considerate so we have a compost bin for food scraps (not meat or citrus) and recycling bins for tin and most plastics (the yellow bin), and paper (the blue bin). It's not compulsory to use these but it is encouraged.
The laundry room includes a washer and dryer and to use these, you plug the cord into the designated plug for our unit - this is clearly marked.
From Dec 28, 2015 - Jan 03, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
About the Host, Caroline
Hi. I work in communications for a bank but study interior design, which is my main passion. I am a long time yogi and can provide advice to those wishing to practice yoga around Sydney - there are some world-class teachers here.
I love to swim and often am down at Icebergs for a lap, or gathering with friends to do a Bondi bay swim. Otherwise, I love film and music.
I have travelled far and wide and am ever curious about new places and people. I hope to offer you a home that lets you explore Sydney but provides a comfortable base for you to regroup and relax
I look forward to meeting like-minded souls soon!
