Our sophisticated, family friendly Art Deco apartment is a stylish welcoming home with plenty of personal space (a rarity in apartments) and privacy, and just minutes stroll to amazing coffee, restaurants, train, leafy parks and major retail.

The space

This ground floor two bedroom apartment offers plenty of 'personal' space with three small, but genuine, living spaces (kitchen, lounge, dining), which is ideal if you have kids in tow.
Situated in a boutique Art Deco block of 4 apartments, there are no common walls between you and your neighbours which gives a rare sense of privacy in an apartment block.

MInimum 4 nights stay.

The MAIN BEDROOM is the smaller of the two bedrooms, but it is a cosy, attractive room and has shelves dedicated to you for unpacking.

The CHILDREN'S BEDROOM has king single bunks with top-of-the-line posturepedic mattresses, so they fit kids of any age or size. It is a spacious room with a great array of toys plus books and games. Most of the kids' toys and equipment are contained to this room, so for the child-free couple you can just shut the door to the kids' room and enjoy the (mostly) sophisticated space without being overrun by toys. If you do have small children then you will love the fact that they have plenty of space to play in one room and not be underfoot in your adult lounge area.

The cook-friendly KITCHEN features all the appliances you need, including a Miele dishwasher. The window fronting breakfast bar is ideal for kids' dinners, or cafe-style breakfasts for two. A quirky highlight of the kitchen is the 'Chef's Companion Chair' - a comfortable leather armchair in which you can sit and nurse a glass of wine whilst keeping an eye on dinner, on the dinner maker, or on the kids as they eat their dinner.

The LOUNGE ROOM is a warm space with an authentic Art Deco three seater lounge and a single leather armchair. A large flatscreen TV, DVD and a cupboard of kids' DVDs are yours to enjoy. A new addition to this room is the 1960s piano. It does take up a bit of space, but if you like to play then please feel free to tinkle on the ivories (with respect to the neighbours of course). A gas heater warms this room in seconds on cooler winter evenings.
If you love character then you will appreciate the retro-fitting work in progress of this room, with the bakelite door handles, deco sidetables, mirror, lamps and light fittings.

The DINING ROOM is a nice room to sit in and watch the world go by. With seed-grass matting on concrete floors, unique plaster work, timber blinds, antique cabinets, an old farmhouse dining table, and other assorted odds that don't fit anywhere else in the flat, the best way to describe it is industrial-meets-vintage-meets-stuff.
The dining table seats 4, although you will have to share leg room with the printer that lives under the table, but hey - that's apartment living.

There is one BATHROOM, with a toilet, large bath and separate shower cubicle. The toilet and sink are new, but the shower, floor and bath are almost 100 years old, and whilst clean, they do have stains and crazing that comes with age.

OTHER STUFF
The building is almost 100 years old, and whilst it is undeniably charming and full of character, it is getting a little worn in some places, but it is a clean and tidy space which you can enjoy with ease, relaxed in the knowledge that it is a home, not a showroom.

Given we have 4 people living in a small space, there is a bit of a storage crisis. Shelves and baskets are available in the main room for you to unpack, along with some hanging space. Most suitcases can be stored under the bed, but when we have kids to stay or friends with lots of bags, they tend to keep the bags in the dining room to keep the other spaces clutter free.

All rooms are available for guests use.
The laundry is an external space shared with the three other apartments in the building, but we have our own washing machine which you can use.

We will welcome you on arrival when possible and ensure that you have everything that you need. We may not be staying locally during your stay, but will be contactable at all times and have family close by.

Artarmon has a great village atmosphere with a mix of young professional couples and families living in the area.
Just 10 minutes from Sydney CBD, Artarmon has all the convenience of the inner city, but is a peaceful leafy suburb with a village atmosphere.
The retail mecca of Chatswood is just a 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk away, and there are an abundance of parks, playgrounds, bike tracks, sports fields and even a skate park close by.

FOOD
The local pub with buzzing bistro is just a 3 minute stroll away, but if it is good coffee you are after then the Award Winning 'Salvage' in Wilkes Avenue (Winner of The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 'Best Barista') is a must-visit.
Artarmon has become quite a foodie's paradise in recent years with the booming Wilkes Avenue strip of al fresco restaurants including the much heralded 'Genki Noodle', a new Korean 'Mr Kim', and local favourite 'Sushi Ya'.
Artarmon also has great pizza, Taiwanese, Indian take-away, and more Japanese restaurants.

The train station is a 4 minute walk, with trains getting you to the city in around 12-15 minutes.
Allow about 40 mins for a train to/from the airport.
Buses to Manly are a 200m walk from our door.
There is parking on the street, but depending on the time of day you may have difficulty finding a park right out of the front.

The top bunk on the bunk bed is very high for a small child. We recommend that children are not allowed on the top bunk unless they are 6 years or older and familiar with bunk beds.

The toys are all packed into boxes and tubs, and your children are welcome to play with them, there are toys suited to both boys and girls. Please note however that they are approprite for 6yo+ as they may contain parts that a smaller child may choke on (such as lego).

We had a lovely time in Miranda's home. It is perfect for a family and a home away from home. Miranda was kind enough to leave us some surprises which was a perfect way to start a holiday. The location is perfect; in a quite town but you have the excess to city and the abundance of shopping and restaurants at Chatswood with the train station less than a 5 minute walk away. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for some peace away from the busy city but still require easy access to the city life.

We had a wonderful time staying at Miranda's family home. She was very welcoming and prompt in her communication with us, and was very thoughtful and considerate in her attention to detail. It was a delightful family space for us to stay. Miranda's folder full of helpful information about the house, the flats and the local area was far and above what you would find in most accommodation places! We referred to it numerous times. The immediate neighbours were friendly. We loved the locality. Particularly the vast range of eateries, and the local parks (a short drive away). The short walk to the train station was an absolute bonus- hardly used the car!

I stayed at Miranda's home for six days. We were a family of four. My experience from the day of contacting Miranda regarding booking her home was very very pleasant. She is person of detail. She explained every finer detail pertaining to my Sydney visit with utmost passion. Her house is a cozy bliss and just felt like our own home or even better. She was very kind to leave a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, milk, biscuits, fresh fruits and loads of other things which made our Sydney-stay start with a satisfactory burp. Although she was out of Sydney on a family trip but kept in touch with us which was very reassuring. Shopping arena with Coles, easy fruits, Westfield's are just 10 minutes by walk & Train station is 5 minutes away. Weather was brilliant so taking a walk around anytime was a liberating experience. Being situated close to parks, tennis court and small restaurants there was nothing left to be desired. She had offered us children's toys which kept our kids excited and busy for which I will say thanks Miranda. If not those toys don't know how I would have kept my kids entertained. Kids room was brilliantly organized with a bunk bed, amazing view n of course loads of rack filled with toys. Stay at this home was certainly a high point of our Sydney visit. We got to meet Miranda and her family only on the last day that too only for few hours. She was very kind to give us a crop till train station. On the last day we shared a meal and left on good satisfactory burp just to come back soon. If I ever visit Sydney again with family and in the need if a home then Miranda's house will be my obvious preference. It is perfect for a single, couple or small family. One thing I missed mentioning is that she has a mini library in her home with close to 500 books from different genre to keep your brain well worked out in case if you are a good reader then it could be your best option in Sydney.

Right from first contact with Miranda she was prompt, friendly and helpful. She made us feel very welcome. Their home is comfortable and stylish. The location was perfect - a couple of minutes walk to Artarmon train station. We stayed as a family of three and would love to stay again if we were wanting accommodation north of the city. 10 out of 10 from us.

Hi!

My husband and I are so delighted to have joined airbnb to share the home we love with travellers and adventurers from around the world. We live in our apartment with our two little boys, but we are lucky to have out-of-town family to visit during school holidays, which frees it up for you to enjoy!

I am a mad reader, so guests are likely to find books stashed all over the house, plus I enjoy wine, music, and a good belly laugh. Since we started our family 8 years ago we've not had much opportunity for travel, so I am really looking forward to living my travelling dreams vicariously through you!

Bon voyages!
