    Pack up for a visit Paddington

    Paddington is a trendy suburb that is located less than ten kilometres from Sydney's CBD, and only a stone's throw away from the ocean making it the ideal location for holiday rentals. It is adored for its cafe culture and vibrant collection of trendy shops that are loved and often visited by Sydneysiders and holiday makers. Arranging a holiday apartment in Paddington is a popular past time for many travellers who come to visit Sydney, as the area delightfully portrays a slice of Sydney's history, intertwined with modernism and chic interior designs.
