"After staying in many Air BnB's around the world, we have to say this was one of the best for value, safety, location and ease. Highly recommended." (A recent guest)
We are very proud of our apartment which we have attempted to create with much love and caring. It is constantly well reviewed ... (out of 132 guests we have received 5 / 5 star ratings 83% of the time and are super hosts) so why don't you be the judge xx

The space

Located in an iconic Art Deco building in the heart of Darlinghurst, this one bedroom apartment offers all the luxuries. Recently refurbished and decorated it has everything you require including amazing views to the city skyline. It is within a security block and has a luxuriously appointed queen sized bed, large ensuite bathroom, well stocked kitchen i.e. upright oven and hotplates, microwave, fridge and fully appointed kitchen appliances – (ps I love to cook…and I need the right implements)...Important essentials that will ensure that you will not starve when you first arrive ….dining room table and chairs, lounge, coffee table, book collection and television (with DVD player) and music system. The apartment has unlimited Wifi because we know that you need that – just like we do. Views apparent from every window including views of the opera house and the Harbour Bridge (even from the toilet– no less)
Although we are very proud of our unit and the way it presents, the jewel in the crown of this apartment occurs on the upper common rooftop deck area where there are gas operated barbeques and tables and chairs, a newly renovated pool and surrounding gardens and coin operated washing machines and dryers. All of this in a setting which has breathtaking views of the harbour bridge, the opera house and all that Sydney has to offer.

Guest access

You have the full run of the apartment during your stay as well as access to the common rooftop deck area via a security key.

Interaction with guests

We would love to meet and greet you and then stay out of your way - but will be available by phone or email at any time and have some lovely friends who live within the apartment block who will always help and assist if required.

Other things to note

You will not be disappointed in this unit - no one has been...but there is a 5 night minimum to ensure that we are able to give you the best experience we can.

Great location. A lot of bars and restaurants very close by. Walkable to key places. Apartment itself is lovely with an awesome roof terrace. Can't recommend highly enough.

Beautiful apartment, views of harbour bridge and opera house from roof top and room. Sharon was a great host, met us for a very early check-in, gave us a little tour and informed us on things not to miss out on. Great location, travel passes provided for our stay. Highly recommend and would happily stay again.

+ A very tidy room closed to bus station and train station + 3 minutes walk to a supermarket and 1 minute walk for couples of restaurants + Sharon and Mal provided suggestions timely + Get most of the things we need + The choice of CD is awesome! + Do visit the fashion stores downstairs! I spent AUD400 there and got a couple of cool stuff + The rooftop is awesome! Do visit there! ~ Maybe noisy at Saturday night (a lot of drunk people downstairs - but mostly friendly) - No air-con - maybe hot in summer time or when you need that - May need to check the cupboard (some of the stuff are expired)

This apartment is the perfect blend of big city access with a village feel. 5 minutes to anywhere - a foodies paradise, a family feel and a fabulous view from the rooftop. Amenities are fabulous. The pantry was incredibly well stocked (thanks guys)! A great place to retreat to at the end of a huge day. Sharon and Mal were incredibly welcoming and we really felt like they looked after us! Go ahead and book. You'll not regret it!

Had a wonderful stay. Sharon and Mal were very kind and easy to communicate with and were even able to pick us up from the airport, which was so wonderful! The apartment was in a great location, easily walkable to the harbor, great restaurants, pools, the Sydney museum, botanical gardens and a few blocks from the train station. If you stay, stop at the information booth several blocks away, not far from the train station, and get brochures/info. We did a "boutique" wine tour in Hunter valley (highly highly recommend, brochure at the info booth) and the tour bus picked us up only two blocks away at the Holiday Inn.

The location of this apartment was very convenient- - only a 5 minute walk from the train station. Everything a guest may need was in the apartment, including snacks and refreshments (and an Opal card for public transportation). The decorations in the apartment were very nice and it felt like home. Based on one of the reviews, I was concerned that the apartment would be noisy. But Sharon assured me it was not, and she was absolutely right! The apartment faces away from the street, so there is very little “city noise”. And the building has very strict noise rules, so any noise from other apartments quieted down at night. The only problem we had was that the bed was sooo comfortable that we had trouble getting up in the mornings- - which is a good thing when you’re on holiday! We’re already trying to figure out how to justify another trip to Sydney, so we can stay at Sharon and Mal’s apartment again!

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. Many nearby restuarants to choose from and close to public transport made it easy for us to explore Sydney from. Sharon is a great host and made sure we had everything we needed including welcome drinks to enjoy on the rooftop, which has a magnificent view of the city.

Sharon And Mal User ProfileSharon And Mal is a superhost.

We are both Sydney born and bred and apparently we are getting older but that is not always what we feel. We are both still running our own businesses so work hard during the week but in down time love sailing, theatre, live music and entertaining. We have a significant number of adult children (phew – all of whom have left home) and remain very engaged in all that offers to us (whether we “always” like it or not!!!! )
We love our primary home on the beach in a little village South of Sydney (about 1.5 hours’ drive – or rail) and relish walking our dogs on the beach every day but also adore getting up to the big smoke and utilising all that offers to us and others. We love travelling and continue to explore places regularly that we have not yet seen together but always try and fit in New York which is our combined favourite city outside our own.
We particularly enjoy our new little apartment in Darlinghurst…and we hope you will too. We have attempted to set up a little “crash pad” filled with love which we feel very comfortable in - which we hope you also appreciate. We have done this in in a wonderful part of our city (which we find edgy but exciting) and so …. Enjoy and welcome to the “Darlings” – we feel confident you will enjoy your stay…that is certainly our intention.
