A truly lovely apartment that was bright & welcoming upon arrival & that made us feel instantly at home. Brilliant location literally 7/8 mins walk from Bondi Beach & centre. To get back to apartment would be longer as uphill all the way and this might not be suitable for all but it's great for the fitness! The bus stop to go to Bondi Junction & Sydney is at the end of the road (approx 100mts) with the stop for the 333 (express bus) a further 2 mins away down hill. The apartment is on ground floor but was in a very quiet block which seemed to be mainly residential as opposed to holiday lets and was therefore very peaceful even over the Xmas & New Year period. The block is situated on a corner but again there was very little traffic noise as one of the roads was a no through road. The accommodation was perfect for us and would also suit a single person, there was ample storage space for clothes with shelving units, drawers & small cupboards in the bedroom and a hanging rail in the hallway which worked OK. Would definitely book again as we felt that it was our home whilst we stayed there.
We did not get to meet Monica personally, but we received a warm welcome from her friend Zoe, who even brought us some fruit and flowers and helped us to get familiar with the apartment. We had a pleasant stay in a beautifully decorated apartment.
Monica's description of her flat is a bright and happy haven is perfect. It has a very peaceful feel to it, is beautifully maintained and has all you need. The location is great,being a five minute walk from the wonder and madness of Campbell Parade, which is the main drag of Bondi.And its just a few minutes up the hill to the shops and restaurants of Bondi Rd.
I had a very happy month.
It was very nice to have Monica with us for a week. She filled the apartment with good energies and a peaceful atmosphere! We had a lot of things in common, so we had a very good connection. She is a very interesting person to talk with. She had traveled quite a lot so always there is something to talk about! I would highly recommend her!
I was delighted to have Monica staying at the joglo and it bit nervous that she is also a designer... but she enjoyed herself and I hope she can feel inspired to create interesting work! Monica is a delightful and interesting guest! Alej
I was very lucky to have Monica as a guest, not only because she was respectful and considerate but I found her to be a wonderful, interesting and fun person to get to know. She will always be welcome in Barcelona!
