Studio apartment in the very highly regarded Cliveden building with rooftop pool & sun deck

Handy to Circular Quay, Pitt St Mall, The Rocks, Martin Pl & Wynyard Stations and even a short ferry trip to the Zoo and Manly.

The space

This Studio apartment in the very highly regarded Cliveden building makes for a great city pad with roof top pool.

The apartment is a cosy studio apartment consisting a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, Queen bed and a double sofa bed, in one room.

We provide all the essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, hairdryer, towels, sheets etc.

Currently the apartment has a standard 50lt hot water tank and water-efficient shower head. This makes for very efficient showers.
We are looking into modifying the system, but it is subject to Council approval which is proving challenging given it is a heritage building, we look to your patience during this time.

Our guests are the type who cross continents the way others cross streets. This includes the weekenders, the suits, fashion baggers and affair havers. The explorers, adventurers and dreamers. Those who travel the world with big hearts and wide eyes. Those who are independent, yet united by a love of the five continents. Those in search of business, shopping or art. In short, everyone who is a mobile citizen of the world. Most likely, that also means you.

Mobile citizens know what they like from good lodgings. This includes stylish design, great value, the best entertainment, sociable atmosphere, a comfortable bed and big fluffy towels. They need accommodation in a good location, and they could do without unnecessary or hidden costs.

The result is unique, quality lodging for an affordable price.

Interaction with guests

Want to know our favourite bar?
Need the best coffee Sydney has to offer?
Or even our fav Spotify playlist..
Communication is available 24 hours a day;

Availability during the guest's stay is no problem, (except when we are airbnb guests instead of hosts) communication still available, but assistance on the ground is limited.

Our guest's comfort is important to us and we ask you to please let us know if there are any problems during your stay: blown bolbs, leaky taps, even a squeeky toilet seat. We will fix it. We ask that you kindly give us the opportunity to fix may problems instead of a permanent comment on our review page, because that makes us sad. :(

Brilliant location to get around Sydney and to public transport, so easy getting to and from the airport as well. The apartment is perfect for two people, any more would be a bit of a squeeze! Great for a city break, but if you want somewhere quiet and secluded this isn't the place for you. But for what we needed for our five days of exploring Sydney it was ideal!

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Livia & Belinda's place for 3 nights on our arrival in Sydney. The apartment is clean and fresh and perfectly positioned for circular quay and all the city has to offer. Everything so close and within walking distance, some fine resteraunts near by too. We arrived on a Sunday very jet lagged and noticed there were no curtains, not a problem unless your a light sleeper like me. However our host actually went straight to ikea there and then and bought some curtains, now that's looking after your guests. I'd recommend this place due to location and easy dealings with good people.

Response from Sante Livia:
Not a problem, we were more than happy to buy curtains to ensure you were comfortable. Enjoy your trip, and hope you come back to stay with us again.

These guys were legendary, everything was SUPER easy and straight forward. All communication was really fast and clear. The location of the place is also ridiculous, so epic to be in the heart of Sydney. It’s literally half a walk to circular quay. Amazing, will be back.
