PERFECT SYDNEY CITY HARBOURSIDE LOCATION, MINUTES FROM BEACHES

Sydney CBD Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom ,1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) City Harbourside

This light and spacious one bedroom apartment is located on the top floor of a small two storey walkup (2 flights) security block of just 12 apartments and enjoys a light airy breeze from Rushcutters Bay on Sydney Harbour.

The bedroom has a Queen sized bed and is furnished with quality linen and has floor to ceiling built-in robes. There is also a Dyson fan or a heater for additional comfort . The fully equipped gourmet kitchen with gas stove and granite benchtop, also houses an internal washer/dryer. The bathroom has a bath and shower. The living room has wireless internet, 60' 3D LCD television, cable TV, various game consoles and a collection of movies and books.

Check the location on Google Maps (Waratah St, Rushcutters Bay, Sydney), and as you will see, the location could not be better - quietly tucked away in a parkside setting but yet within minutes of the hustle and bustle of mainstream Sydney. As you step out the front door, you are immersed in the bayside park scene with tennis club, marina, coffee shops, cafes and those fabulous Harbour views. The area is well serviced by Public transport and although you will not need it, there is plenty of on street parking at the door. Go-get share cars are located at either end of the street.

A short bus ride will take you to the CBD where you can explore historic “The Rocks” precinct, the Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, the Opera House and the rest of the city/harbour sights. My apartment is also well within walking distance of all this. A short stroll will take you to the restaurant district of Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, the nightlife hub of Kings Cross or across the park for breakfast on the marina of the Sydney Cruising Yatch Club or Club 88 on the corner, OR for some serious shopping locally at fashionable Oxford Street, Paddington or the Antique mecca of Queen Street, Woollahra. Some of the most famous beaches in Australia - such as Bondi, Bronte, Coogee etc. are only a short distance away by public transport.

The tariff includes access to the pantry basics and if you provide a list, I can fully stock the pantry, ready for your arrival. Airport transfers can also be arranged.

I hope you enjoy your stay and you will not regret the location. Simply amazing! Any questions? Want to see more photos? Feel free to e-mail me.

We are Bennet and Laelie, a Mother and son team who own this lovely apartment. Bennet now resides in Queensland and so I manage the apartment. I live close by in Paddington and will be happy to assist in making your stay memorable.

Laelie Schwartz purchased this apartment in 2007

We have owned this apartment since May 2007 and just love the location. It was handy to transport when Bennet was going to University and close to the beaches, cafes and night life and all his other interests. It was easy to maintain while living on his own and yet large enough to have his friends over. The parklands on the doorstep and the safe locale were additional bonuses

So quiet on the harbourfront, yet in the middle of all the action - close proximity to the beaches, the City and public transport, and still within walking distance to just about everywhere. It is the best.

SYDNEY TREASURE! LIVE LIKE A LOCAL

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful find for our recent one month stay in Sydney. From the moment we entered this Heritage apartment we felt welcomed and at home. The unit is tucked away on a residential street with the park and waterfront on your doorstep. All the city and harbour have to offer is only minutes away by foot, bus or ferry. However long your stay this is an ideal home base. Just like the pictures show and all the previous reviews state, this apartment really delivers. The extra touches, amenities provided and gracious and accommodating hostess Lailie make for a memorable experience. We are avid walkers and used the bus and ferry as well. Edgecliff shopping center and Harris Farm market had all we required for our meals at home and our picnics on the go. Rain or shine there is so much to do and see, we only scratched the surface. The transit system on land and sea is extremely efficient and convenient to use, we were so impressed. Sydney offers something for every taste and is a very liveable city. Staying in Rushcutters Bay is just icing on the cake! We would stay here again.

A WONDERFUL APARTMENT, AN OUTSTANDING WELCOME!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 8 nights at this wonderful apartment, very comfortable, situated in a quiet residential area right by a park and close to the ocean, and an easy 40 minute walk to the Opera House and CBD. Earlier on our 7 week visit to Australia we had stayed in the CBD and we deliberately chose this apartment to be away from all the hustle and bustle of the big city but within easy reach of it. Our week in this apartment was a perfect way to end our trip. We have rented through VRBO many times, in Europe and in North America, and we have never experienced such a warm welcome as we did with Laelie who met us at Sydney Central Railway Station late in the evening and drove us to the apartment and took the time to explain the apartment and the neighbourhood. Laelie had very kindly organized some provisions (milk, bread etc) in the kitchen for us. She also helped us arrange an airport shuttle when we left and helped carry our luggage to the nearby shuttle pick up place. This was an extraordinary experience and we want to thank Laelie very much for all her generous help and kindness. Laelie, you made sure that our trip ended on a very high note!

ANOTHER AMAZING TIME IN RUSHCUTTER'S

Another amazing time in Rushcutter's
  • 5 of 5
I absolutely love staying in this apartment. It is close enough to everything, yet you still feel the hushed calmness of the suburban location. Excellent tennis in the park, running, working out, walking, people watching, great restaurants...really nothing lacking here. This is the fourth time I've stayed here, as I love not only the location, but also the amenities offered in the apartment. Laelie's hospitality is second to none. I actually feel more like family than I do a paying rental guest. Highly recommend this location!!!

A RARE FIND!

  • 5 of 5
Welcoming, accommodating - everything needed in an apartment for a pleasurable stay in a 'home-away-from-home.' We appreciated Laelie's anticipation and attention to every detail of our stay: transportation to shop for groceries, ample suggestions for site seeing... The apartment is in a quiet location next to a park while the bus stops are minutes away. Great alternative to the hustle and bustle of the city. A relaxing opportunity to end our tour of New Zealand and Australia in lovely surroundings. Thank you, Laelie!!
