Walking distance to Botanic Garden and Circular Quay. Quiet. no napkins or paper towels or basic condiments, like salt & pepper, are provided, so make arrangements if you will be cooking and eating there. Also wasn't clear where guests were supposed to take their trash; we used small can in the luggage storage area in the lobby.

Carolina was excellent to deal with and we were very happy with all aspects of the rental. Bus lines are located within 100m of the front door allowing you easy access to downtown Sydney if you want to head downtown. Plenty of places to eat within a 5 minute walk (many within 1-2 minutes). We would DEFINITELY stay here again!
