Modern, clean, bright apartment, warm feel. Both rooms queen beds.
Apartment beautifully furnished.
Perfect location close to city. Beach across road.
10 mins walk to Double Bay ferry & cafes, bus stop 2 mins. Walking distance to train St.

The space

The apartment has a lovely warm feel. It's bright and relaxing. Decorated with tasteful Moroccan, African artefacts which give it an exotic worldly touch. I'm a photographer so if you enjoy photographic art you will love the apartment.

The space is clean and modern with all the appliances you need if you wanted to cook your own meals rather than go out.

Across the road is a beautiful park and Red Leaf harbour beach pool. My favourite little beach. Here you can swim and relax in the glorious sunshine and watch the most amazing view of the boats and harbour at sunset.

The apartment is conveniently located close to Double bay village. You can walk down the hill in 10mins to cafe's, restaurants, bars and beautiful boutiques and shops. It is also 10mins walk from Double Bay ferry wharf. The Jetcat will get you into the city in 15mins. Wonderful way to travel! It's a 10m cab ride to iconic Bondi Beach or 30min walk.

Guest access

Guests have access to entire apartment, the bedrooms, living space, bathroom and kitchen. All day parking next to apartment, if this is full there is free street parking.

Interaction with guests

I will welcome you on arrival or leave the keys for you.
The apartment a private, quiet and relaxing space.

Other things to note

It is not suitable for little toddlers/young children. There is no child proofing in the apartment. There is also a huge window that opens up on enclosed balcony with no rail and I am wary of small children/toddlers in the space because of this. Apologies but I'd rather not rent it out to families with very young children unless babies.

The flat is on the second floor so a few steps to climb.
Also there is a very steep driveway so if guests have walking problems or need use of walking stick this could be tricky to manoeuvre.
Also young families with prams.

The driveway entrance is located by the traffic lights before going up to Victoria road. No need to drive up Victoria road as drive way entry comes off New South Head road. Slightly misleading on a GPS and guests often miss it at night.

The apartment is in a perfect location and beautifully presented. It was a haven from the tourist trail and very close to a wonderful small beach with a delicious coffee kiosk. I definitely recommend it and Louisa is very helpful and accommodating.

Great place to stay! Brilliant beach and cafe just across the road for an early morning swim and coffee. Take the ferry from Double Bay - a beautiful spot and better than the train if you are in no rush.

Only had text / email contact with our host, so didn't meet her, but, her contact helped resolve the missing second key issue eventually. Luckily we had quite precise instructions on how to find the driveway to the apartment, otherwise it would have been very tricky to find for the first time in the dark. We enjoyed our stay in hilly Sydney, once we had overcome a few issues, and found some food! Bibo, a recently opened wine bar saved the day which we found via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). We discovered a great cafe at the marina, turn right at end of drive and walk down main road for less than ten minutes and through a lovely park near the beach past the police station.

We really enjoyed our stay in Louisa's quirky African-themed apartment. The location is great – close to the shops of Double Bay and just across the road is one of our favourite cafes in Sydney. The Red Leaf Cafe overlooks the water and city skyline and serves excellent coffee. Although the accommodation is near the main road, there was no disturbance from traffic noise, and parking outside was usually not a problem.

Louisa's place was absolutely gorgeous! It was decorated immaculately and had an African vibe to it. Plus it had an awesome couch! It was a last minute booking and Louisa was very easy going and helpful with check in. This place is perfect for groups.

Louisa's apartment is in an amazing Hogwarts style block. She's decorated her home in a chic, original style, it has all the home comforts you could wish and Louisa is a thoughtful and detailed host. Make sure you take advantage of the stunning, secluded beach just across the road!

Easy going, friendly, well travelled. I'm a lifestyle, documentary photographer so the apartment is filled with my work. I grew up in Kenya, East Africa but have been living in Sydney for 12 years. I absolutely love this city and all it has to offer. I'm sure your stay will be wonderful. I can advise on all the best places to visit.
My apartment is in a great location close to the city and beaches. You'll love the convenience.
I look forward to meeting you. My favourite motto: Keep life simple, do more things that make you happy.
