Perfect for a single or couple as it sleeps two on the chiropractic, comfortable queen bed. We do not have a cot nor extra sleeping facilities in this property for more than two people. Babies are welcome, but you will need to bring your own bedding and extras.

The studio does not have AC. Installing AC in this studio would be in vain as the studio does not need extra cooling. The studio is on the top floor and has a wonderful cross breeze that all have loved and enjoyed. It also faces east so only gets the morning sun, not the hot afternoon western sun. If the studio was on the other side of the building it would be a different story. The studio has a large fan (see pictures) if extra cooling is required, but beyond the fan, AC is not needed at all. We have had guests in this studio for 4 years during record temperature Summer heat waves and never had we had feedback about there requiring AC. It's a lovely breezy space.

The New South Wales region

Beaches and surfing in NSW

If a world championship competition for the best beaches was held, New South Wales would have to be disqualified on grounds of unfair advantage. The State’s coastline stretches 1590km with a grand total of 892 beaches including Sydney’s famed harbour and ocean beaches and seven of Australia’s National Surfing Reserves.

With all that choice, you’re bound to find just the right beach for a surfing weekend, a surfing road trip or a fun-packed beach holiday with the kids. World-famous surf breaks attract keen surfers from around the globe but there are also plenty of beaches where you can learn to surf with an accredited surf school.

Great food and wine across NSW

Award-winning top-rated restaurants are liberally sprinkled across New South Wales from Leura to Orange, Byron to Mildura with committed chefs attracted by the abundant, quality, seasonal produce. You can stock up on delicious gourmet goodies at the farm gate, artisan bakeries, family-owned wineries and the regular farmers’ markets that are now a tourist feature of most major NSW towns.

Stay for a short break or long weekend to enjoy a regional cooking class or wine tasting course. Impress your friends with rare vintages, organic hand-made cheeses and fresh seafood from some of the cleanest waters in the world or a box of succulent organic figs, juicy peaches or crisp apples.

On your travels you’ll also discover that some foodie pleasures never fade. Lunch on the veranda of an old country pub, fish and chips on the beach, an afternoon cream tea in a quaint café or tasting fine wine made by a third generation wine-maker.

NSW road trips and scenic drives

The best scenic drives take you on road trips of sheer pleasure and discovery. In New South Wales, there are tourist drives and scenic road trips that let you explore at your own pace, spend time with the whole family on a new adventure or meet new friends in a holiday park.



Oxford St Darlinghurst Sydney

Oxford Street is Darlinghurst’s best known street, as much as it being the beginning of the Annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade route every year and as being known as the centre of the gay community in Sydney.

The street runs from the south east corner of Hyde Park in the city all the way to Bondi Junction.

Sydney Nightlife

For the nightlife, on the side streets and Oxford Street itself, you can easily find a place that suits your tastes.

There are plenty of nightclubs that go long into the night and as well as collection of lively pubs in this area stretching from the lower end of Oxford Street to Paddington, including the Oxford, the Grand National, the Windsor Castle, The Four in Hand and the Royal.

Darlinghurst Restaurants

A great variety of restaurants, from international such as Indian, Thai, Mauritian, Nepalese, Vietnamese, Mexican, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, to the nouveau are to be found in Darlinghurst.

Or tuck into a well aged steak or cut of prime roast rib or even seafood. There is plenty of choice here and not just on Oxford Street, but in the old suburb’s winding small side streets and lanes.

You can also find numerous cafés and fast food outlets tucked away between the speciality shops, boutiques, restaurants, music stores, pubs and nightclubs.

Shopping in Darlinghurst

One of the attractions to this area are the many specialist shops, trendy galleries, antique shops and the speciality clothes stores. Find what you want from the latest fashions and accessories, to recycled retro and street designer clothing.

Booklovers will delight at the many late closing book stores here. One, aptly named ‘The Bookshop’, at 207 Oxford Street, has been open for over twenty years specialising in GLBT books and magazines, including the latest releases - as well as DVDs.

Victoria Army Barracks

Victoria Army Barracks, built by convicts and soldiers in 1841 from locally sourced sandstone and surrounded by a protective wall. There is a military museum that you can visit and the complex is an interesting example of 19th century military architecture.

The Sydney Jewish Museum

On the corner of Burton St and Darlinghurst Rd is the Sydney Jewish Museum. Exhibits trace the history and life of the early Jewish settlers who came to Australia, to begin a new life.

It also has a number of poignant displays and exhibits relating to the Holocaust.

"Characterful studio in great location."

Cute studio apartment in interesting period block in a very central location within walking distance of all city highlights. The apartment contains everything required for a short to medium term stay … More

Thank you Niel - such a great guest. Darlinghurst is an inner city suburb of Sydney, full to the brim of exciting restaurants and night life and yet, the studio is on one of the quietest culdesac streets, so we miss the traffic but occasionally guests will hear passersby on their way home. You would have a hard time finding a location without this in Darlinghurst and that's why we and others love it :-)

"Light, airy pad for staying in central Sydney"

I stayed at this chic, small pad for a week during my stay in Sydney in July 2013. It's close to everything so it's accessible. It's surrounded by leafy gardens and cafes, so you don&… More

WE do our best to allow guests to check in early if requested, but it is entirely dependent on previous and post guests to your stay. All guests are given a 10am check out and 2pm check in as we need the full 4hrs to clean. If a guest departs earlier than 10am, we can get in earlier and offer earlier check-in to the next guest.

"Lovely, beautiful and cozy accommodation to suit your every need"

The studio is close to all attractions in Sydney. Just exit the main entrance and you will be swarmed with many great cafes and restaurants from Western fares to Asian and even Argentinian. Don't fancy spending too much? Studio also provides ample amenities for cooking. A short walk to King Cross and you will find the train station and Coles. Rain or shine, the studio is within a good distance to get to where you need to go and away from the normal hustle bustle of CBD. Roof top view during dusk is just beautiful.
