I am an American from East Coast, living in Sydney Australia. I am into art, ideas and sharing. I would love to stay in a lighthouse and a teepee but for now I am by the beach.

The studio is just great. I guess one of the best accommodation you can book in Sydney. The studio is very clean and looks exactly like on the pics. Only 2 minutes walk to the beach of Tamarama and 10min to Bondi. Julia is such a nice host. She even left breakfast for the whole week at the fridge for me. Can highly recommend the accommodation.
The studio is in such a great location, is perfectly appointed and Julia is a great host.
If you feel like exploring Sydney a bit then you're in an easy spot for local transport.
Equally if you're keen to do the beaches and Bondi life you're just steps from the beach, there is a wonderful cafe in just a few minute walk and a multitude of other bars, cafes, restaurants all within in walking distance.
Julia greeted us on arrival, showed us the details of the space and had kindly equipped our fridge and cupboard with basics that saw us through our stay.
The little patio / garden is lovely and I only wish I had been able to spend more time just sitting enjoying the space!
Julia and Andrew were wonderful hosts and their place was just perfect! Minutes from Tamarama and not much further to Bronte or Bondi beaches, the location is perfect and close to cafés, bus stops and all that Bondi has to offer.
The studio was clean and comfy, with its own entrance and adorable courtyard so it really feels like you've got your own little home away from home. The neighbors were a little loud on occasion, but I was there over Australia Day which probably contributed. All in all, I was more than comfortable and happy with my stay.
Julia and Andrew left a great list of places around the area and helped with whatever came up. They even invited me out on the town with their friends where we had a lovely dinner and checked out some live music since they knew I was from Austin, Texas - where we claim to be the live music capital of the world! :) I had such a great time and they made me feel like an old friend visiting.
Wonderful time and I'd recommend their place to anyone visiting the Bondi area.
I find it hard to believe there is a better Airbnb experience. Let's start with the apartment: all brand new renovation with quality fixtures and tasteful decor, new bathroom, shower, appliances, flat screen tv with cable and internet, comfortable bed with new linens and towels, and a spacious desk and chair. And while the place is essentially a studio, it does not feel small at all due to the private garden. Just open the sliding doors and it feels like one big indoor/outdoor space. Perfect for one person or a couple. As for privacy, there is a separate entrance from a path down the side of the house, and while the owners live above and are easily contactable for any reason, they leave you to your own devices- unless of course you bump into them at the beach!. Also, as this is a rental property there are no personal items or things in the place that remind you of being in someone else's home. As for location, just a short walk down a leafy path and you are at one of Sydney's most exclusive beaches, favored by the young and good looking. A 20 min walk along the famous cliff-top path brings you to world famous Bondi, or the other direction to Bronte and many other beaches. Every morning people are walking, running or excercizing their dogs along this path. I had a car during my stay and always found parking in front or just up the street. Although I live in New York, I used to live in this area myself and have family there now. I can honestly say this is my favorite place in the world to vacation in the sun. Nowhere matches the color and clarity of the water, the exciting surf, the sandy beaches, salt water pools, the cafes and restaraunts all around, and the laid back lifestyle. Julia and Andrew were the perfect hosts- very friendly and accessible but also respect your privacy. My only hope is that the place is free for me again next year!
It was a pleasure to welcome Julia and her daughter . They were clean, tidy and very kind. I would be glad to host them if they came again to Barcelona!
Julia's studio is bright, fresh and airy, with an understated feeling of luxury. It is comfortable, clean and well-equipped - and privately situated down a side path. It opens onto a green and lush courtyard garden, which is perfect to sit in and enjoy a morning coffee or meals, read or idle away the time. And there's more! It's conveniently located a short stroll to the divine Tamarama beach and coastal walk, which leads to Bondi and Bronte beaches. Host Julia is wonderful, too - helpful, fun, interesting, knowledgeable and easygoing. I couldn't recommend her or her studio highly enough.
