***** WHOLE APARTMENT available 20th JAN to 4th FEB or less. Enquire for information *****
The loft reference to this room in Double Bay points more to lifestyle than actual building type; large expanses of polished wood floors, furnished sparingly with design furniture and a few select art pieces. Uncomplicated space is the luxury here.
The apartment, in a grand old house built in early 20th century, occupies the entire ground floor with level street access. Being freestanding, there is only one adjoining apartment upstairs. Both have private entrances and halls and sheltered garden courtyards front & back.
<i>If not for the schoolhouse across the road we would watch the ferry come and go beyond the park. A peaceful and safe environment less than 50m (30yds) from Double Bay village with 7/11 store and famous boutiques, cafes and restaurants.</i>
Short stays are welcome but so too are longer stays of 1 or 2 months. Many of my guests are artists, performers and professionals working temporarily in Sydney, this place offers comforts and freedom of a home lifestyle. <i>**Special rates can be negotiated for long stays and exclusive use is also possible, enquire before booking**</i>
The large bedroom has a queen size bed with feather pillows and heavy damask cotton sheets. Simple multi-function storage lets you get out of the suitcase easily, even if for a few days stay. The tree-top window overlooks a quiet private courtyard. Let the birds wake you up!..literally, many guests comment on the extraordinary sounds of nature so close to the city.
This is a perfect location to visit Sydney, whether for work or pleasure. It's close proximity to the city while at the same time shelter from the hustle & bustle offers welcome homely relief when needed.
Sydney downtown is less than 4km (2.5miles) away, from there it's 1 minute walk to the Opera House, The Rocks 'Old Town', Botanical Gardens, Central Business District and main transport terminal. The fastest way is ferry in 12 minutes, train (Edgecliff) in 15 minutes or bus in 25 minutes.
Commuting by ferry offers a particular treat if here to work; ...a spectacular way to start the day, arriving at Circular Quay between Opera House and bridge. Many guests flag this as the highlight of their stay here.
If you catch the ferry in the opposite direction, you'll soon be in beautiful Watson's Bay - with nature reserve, beaches, more restaurants and cafes and from 'The Gap' a breathtaking 360 vista of ocean and harbour, including spectacular views of the city in the distance.
The kitchen is available for full use, well equipped and with private guest fridge. A paved courtyard from the kitchen even has a BBQ for enjoying Sydney's amazing weather. Laundry facilities include washer and dryer. Towels and linen are all provided and changed weekly. Room cleaning is provided as convenient.
No smoking permitted inside
There are very few fixed rules for this household, I am pretty easy going.
Common sense, courtesy and respect are the guiding principles.
The place is well laid out to allow private space for all.
Security is a high priority, and although a safe neighbourhood, vigilance is practiced and expected. Note: your possessions are NOT insured by the host.

With Stefan, we had a very friendly, always helpful host. He always had good advises for us and even supported beyond what could be expected as normal. The appartment is very nice and situated in a nice, quite neighbourhood. We much enjoyed staying in this place and can recommend it.
Very nice appartement with a nice garden. Double Bay is a nice part of Sydney. I felt very save there. Stefan knows lot's of nice places to go, beautifull walks, parks, beaches, etc.
And Stefan likes to talk with his guest.
We had the pleasure of staying with Stefan in his beautiful apartment for New Year's despite booking the accomodations on rather short notice. Even during the booking process, Stefan already showed himself as a great potential host as he was communicative and quickly got back to me regarding the booking. We communicated several times before our arrival and every time, Stefan was quick to reply and offered up help where needed. After our arrival in Sydney, he proved to be a gracious host with great tips and recommendations. It was great chatting with him and we never felt crowded while sharing the living space with him. We had a grand time in Sydney and loved the closeness of his apartment to the city, the various ways we had to get into town (we took both, the trains and the ferry, and both were quick and easy to use), the fact that he provided maps as well as transportation cards used to tap on and off the public transportation and the general friendliness we were met by, not only by him but by Sydney in general.
Stefan is a very friendly and good host who gave us a lot of ideas and suggestions that made our stay more interesting. The kitchen is well outfitted with all necessary cooking equipment. The room was very adequate for a short stay in the nice area of Double Bay. We enjoyed the garden having a BBQ with Stefan and found the conversations we had really interesting and witty.
Double Bay is a fine location from where you can discover and enjoy Sydney. At harbourside, close to the center and the beaches and very nice to discover the surroundings by jogging. The room has a perfect bed and the kitchen everything to make breakfest and dinner. We had a nice BBQ with Stefan in the garden. Stefan was very helpfull and has many ideas that made our stay special. Thanks Stefan, we hade a great time!
First of all, great house! The bed is very comfy, the bedroom is calm, bathroom is clean...all you need for a great stay. Double Bay is charming and quiet but also very practical to go to the city. Stefan always has good tips and knows the city very well.
But the best thing at Stefan's place is that you're gonna meet Stefan who is an exceptional host, a great person and a brillant mind.
Do not hesitate !!
From the first moment we entered Stefan's house, he was the most kind and ready to help person ever. He is a really interesting person with really interesting conversation to have with. He show us the best things to do in our first days in Sydney and we definitely appreciated all his suggestions. The best we could ever get. Hope to see him again at least for a beer!! Thank you so much Stefan!!
This place I highly recommend.
Firstly stefan is an easy going host available when you need him and gives you all the informations you want to know. Secondly there is no better place to start exploring the city and surroundings. .few minutes to all public transport to beaches and best of all great shopping and pubs/restaurants around the corner.
His little garden is a lovely retreat after a busy day. Inside the house nicely decorated but to our taste a bit dark
We had a really good holiday. We spent about three weeks at Stefan 's house. From time to time the weather was cold so also in the apartment was chilly. Sydney has also pretty humid climate which you could also felt inside.
Stefan was very frienly and he gave a lot of good tips for making our vacation better. We saw a lot diverse Sydney than if we were just experienced travel guide suggestions. Every morning he asked about our plans for the day, then he gave his good tips - fortunately, we followed those. :) The apartment was conveniently located, train and ferry station's was close by.
Stefan is a nice and easygoing host. It's an old building with its own back garden where you could have a nice breakfast or dinner when weather is good. The ferry station is quite near, only a 3 min walk, but the ferry connection to Sydney CBD isn't very often, especially on weekends, so we chose train as our main transportation. But a ferry cruise is worth doing because the scene is especially good when it nearing the circular quay, as Stefan recommended.
