The SpaceApartment: My apartment is perfect for travellers of all ages. I have travelled a lot and know that endless hot water and a range of pillows is more important that the brand of the stove. There is an extra-large bedroom (for Sydney standards) with a comfortable bed and loads of storage. Being able to unpack can be a luxury when you have been living out of a bag. The bedroom fills with natural light all day, but also has double glazing and block out curtains if you need a sleep in. The lounge is large enough to hang about during the day, but please note I don’t own a television, I prefer to get out and about. There is wifi though if you have a laptop. The is a full kitchen, but it is small. It would be tight to prepare for a dinner party for ten. The fridge is large enough for food, snacks, beer and wine, all the important things. The bathroom has a shower over bath and great water pressure, the sunshine fills the room all morning. There are ceiling fans in both the bedroom and lounge room, as well as a portable one if need be. There are loads of towels and linen. It is the kind of space where you walk in, want to take your shoes off and lay on the floor because the carpet is so soft. You’ll notice that you can’t hear the street noise and it feels like you’ve been there before. I love my place!
Rooftop: There is also a rooftop with great sun and an amazing view. You cannot smoke up there, but I do own two sun lounges for sunbaking. The space is communal, so please respect others. Guest AccessThere is access to my apartment, a communal laundry and the rooftop Interaction with GuestsI am contactable 24/7 if you can’t find the towels or the nearest bar. I will also leave a secondary contact number if for some reason you cannot get a hold of me. The NeighborhoodMy apartment is in an incredible location! It is about 20 steps to Kings Cross station. (This is literal, not like in some listing where they say ‘a short walk’, which turns out to be an hour). There is a bottle shop across the road (again, literally). There are bars, restaurants, cafes, gyms, supermarkets, weekend markets all within walking distance. You can also walk to Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Woolloomooloo, the Royal Botanical Gardens, the National Gallery, ABC Pool (a must over summer) and also into town. The walk from my place to the bottom of Martin Place (furthest away) takes less than half an hour. The walk to the Opera House is also less than half an hour. I leave a list of my recommendations out if you get stuck on where to head to as there are so many choices. Getting AroundIt is also very easy to get about, as I am near the train station, bus stops and taxi ranks. There is a direct bus to Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach, as well as Watsons Bay, Coogee and other great places to visit. As an idea an Uber to Bondi Beach (no surge), is around $17 - $24. Other Things to NoteThe carpet is white, please be careful. Please feel free to invite friends around, but the apartment isn’t built for parties as the kitchen is so small and I like to respect the neighbours. I also only own one lounge, so it is not built for entertaining. Get out and enjoy Sydney at your doorstep!
