Manual with local knowledge and how to get around and recommendations The NeighborhoodClose to everything, you can't go wrong in this location Getting AroundTransport just about at your doorstep to beach and city. Buses running every 3 minutes up to Bondi Junction and every 10 minutes down to the beach so no need for a timetable. Other Things to NoteMobile Phones and internet:
Mobile phone reception is not great inside the apartment due to the double brick walls and location. To ensure high speed internet penetrates throughout, we have two internet connections installed
In the winter months ( June July August ) there is a lack of natural light due to the aspect. Summer months ( November through March ) are lighter and brighter, although we do not get full natural light being on ground level. We are referring to southern hemisphere seasons!!
Unfortunately when it rains we lack natural light even in summer which is unfortunate.
The fuse box is on the balcony of the upstairs unit in case of power overload. it has happened once so it's handy to know that it is easily rectified. We suggest you don't use too many appliances at one time on the one circuit. The upstairs neighbour is very obliging if access is needed
Beds and Cots:
The residence has 2 Queen beds which sleeps 4 adult guests.
We can arrange a portable cot if given advance notice.
An additional foam mattress is supplied and stored under one of the beds with clean linen.
There is no off street parking and parking can be difficult ( but not impossible ) in the area. Street parking is free ( unmetered and untimed ) Beware of parking in school zones during school terms as the local council is always out in full force. Outside school term is much quieter in the area.
We have an outdoor cat called Ella that is usually fed and looked after by the upstairs residents in our absence. She is very human friendly and likes to be around people, so if you do not like cats you can shut her out.
if you like having her around and your kids want to feed her, please let the upstairs neighbours know so she is not overfed. She is clean, low maintenance and litters outdoors only. We are flexible with her arrangements.
