Bridget - January 2012

Arriving by car in Sydney and having the luxury of designated parking, we were fortunate to stay in this superbly appointed executive Darlinghurst apartment, minutes walk from the best Sydney has to offer.

This apartment radiates with natural light from the double height glazing. The mezzanine bedroom looks out through mature trees to historic terrace housing, and to the lower timber floored living area with minimal and comfortable designer furniture. We enjoyed having drinks on the leafy deck, absorbing inner city life, cooking in the stainless steel kitchen with walk in pantry/storage room. The office is spacious and the bathroom modern. Transport, when we chose to go further afield was easy with a bus literally outside. We felt so welcome and at home here. A perfect place to stay in Sydney.

Michelle - July 2012

We stayed over a weekend. Fantastic location near Oxford st with great city buzz. Multitude of Cafe//restaurants within 5-10 mins walk. Also easy walk to Paddington shops. We walked down Bourke St to Harbour, around waterfront to Botantic Gardens/Opera house/circular Quay(ferries). Spectacular views. Generous-sized one-bedder apartment; modern and squeaky clean; comfortable bed with quality linen; over-sized thick towels a nice touch.

About Marian

Hi - I'm Marian and with my husband Ken we invite guests to stay at our spacious well equipped inner city apartment. We have lived in Sydney for most of our lives and very much enjoy its beauty and vibrancy. We love to travel ourselves and understand how important it is to find a home away from home. For this reason we have set up our place as we would love it and hope you do too.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (both in our mid-60s) spent 6 comfortable nights in Republic 2 prior which departed from Sydney. We found everything to be just delightful, and as others have commented, the location could not be better! The good news (and the not so good) is the bus stops right outside the building, as it will get you to Hyde Park easily for connections to Circular Quay and other sights. Bring your earplugs for sleeping in as the buses start passing by about 6 am. We purchased Opal transport cards at the airport convenience store upon arrival in Sydney from LA, loaded $20 AU on each and still had $5 left after a week! Planned our major use on Sunday for all the ferry trips (after walking across the Sydney Harbor Bridge) when the cap on daily use is just $2.60. All the bus maps and schedules are only online, so do download them. We had planned to stay another day in Sydney at the tail end of the cruise, so kept the cards and used them to take a local bus #209 from our hotel near the domestic terminal back and forth without the hefty metro fee.

The apt. is a 10- minute walk to Stanley Street in the direction of Hyde Park, where we were entertained several evenings with the variety of restaurants - taking home leftovers to heat up later. Hyde Park is just 5 minutes beyond that street and we accessed Free Tours Sydney from that location (they offer a bus tour and walking tour that were great). Booked a day tour of the Blue Mountains online with a group that picked up at a hotel just 15 minute walk in the other direction.

Marian was so terrific to work with, sending us instructions and answers to questions promptly if needed. She worked with us on the access times, which we really appreciated having arrived in country at 7 am. Having the full array of appliances (washer and dryer, microwave, gas burner stove, etc.) at our disposal was wonderful and we used the building's small gym once during our stay. The main entrance to the apt is on the top floor of the unit, where the bedroom and bath are located, which made it so easy for arrival and departure. Not having to lug our heavy suitcases up the stairs was a godsend!

Everything was clean and functional, and the front desk building maintenance folks were welcoming and helpful. A 10 minute walk up the hill to Metro Woolworth's grocery store and a stop at the bottle store on the way back set us up for the week in the basic grocery items.

Whole heartedly recommend this unit to anyone!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in July on a return trip to Sydney, choosing the flat for its location. The location is fantastic - excellent for restaurants etc with easy access to the city on foot or by bus. The flat is likewise a great place to stay - well-equipped, comfortable and has everything you need. Marian was very helpful and kept in touch to make sure everything was okay. The only thing we would say is that light sleepers may wish to bring earplugs - the flat is generally very quiet and certainly well-insulated but the first buses coming up the hill in the morning might disturb some - we used earplugs and it wasn't a problem. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Deborah. Pleased you made use of the great access to the city, restaurants and transport when you needed it and found the apartment comfortable and well equipped. Being in the center of everything can at times mean some noise but glad this was minimal. Look forward to seeing you again.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for four weeks and found the apartment had everything we wanted. The owner kept in touch and gave us clear instructions. It's very well equipped with modern furniture, good kitchen and laundry facilities and a comfy bed. There are lots of good restaurants and bars near by, a couple of supermarkets too. Though close to a busy area, it was quiet. Easy walk or ride into the CBD and lots of buses nearby to get out further. I'd definitely stay here again.
