Contemporary split level loft in warehouse conversion.
Whilst most of our guests love our space, our studio is not for everyone, so please read our full listing before booking.
The top floor studio with lift features wooden floors, high ceilings and a balcony. It is furnished with vintage furniture and contemporary art.
Furnishings include a 3-seater Chesterfield couch, 2-seater bar with views and balcony seating.
The studio sleeps two guests in the queen bed ( super comfy chiropractic mattress) on the mezzanine level and one guest on a separate mattress which can be placed either downstairs or on the top mezzanine.
If our listing indicates two night minimum stays, but there is a single night free that you'd like to book, please get in touch.
Once you receive the keys the apartment is all yours to enjoy, with full privacy.
We usually make up the queen bed for each guest and leave you to arrange bedding for the day bed and second single mattress where required with linen supplied.
For one night, discounted or back to back bookings, and early check-ins, you may need to make the queen bed - please let us know when you book if this is an issue. We have our apartment professionally cleaned weekly but not necessarily between every booking, especially short stays. We request guests to treat our home as their own and clean up after themselves. The 'cleaning fee' is a contribution towards laundry costs for linen & towels, and the weekly clean. This is a slightly DIY approach but we've done it this way to keep prices as low as possible & enable more flexibility around checkin times. If you require a dedicated clean before your booking, we can arrange this for an extra $79 (thats how much cleaning costs in Sydney!)
The apartment is located in a converted old warehouse building, is filled with art and an eclectic mix of furniture. It is not designed to look or function like an Ikea catalogue so if this is what you desire, we suggest you find an alternate space.
For international guests - Australia has bugs, and Sydney does have cockroaches, particularly in summer (December - March) and in older buildings its not unusual to see a couple. Our apartment is regularly cleaned and we have baits but chose not to spray chemicals for health reasons. We ask that you keep our home clean and avoid leaving food out to avoid attracting the critters.
Guests will have access to a small kitchen electric stove and oven, fridge, bathroom with shower-bath, breakfast bar, high speed wireless internet, big industrial fan and portable heater. Fresh towels, linen, shower products and hair dryer are provided.
Behind our bed and wardrobe must only be accessed for bedding when additional guests have booked.

Please feel free to contact us.
It is our aim to have all information accessible without having to make contact because we travel in areas of intermittent connectivity.
Thanks for understanding!
The studio has an alternate stairwell access via a door in the rear laneway.
The front door key opens this door.
Please water our plants a little each day.
Checkin and checkout times are listed as 2pm and 11am respectively, however we endeavour to accommodate earlier/ later requests according to cleaning schedules and previous/ following guests. We have a keybox so you can be as flexible as possible.
The $40 'cleaning fee' covers laundry, consumables and changes of bedding and we do not expect to have to clean up after our guests. We expect guests to look after our home as if it was theirs, clean up after themselves, remove rubbish, avoid personal articles and leave the apartment as it is found, as we would do in their home. Mop and eco cleaning products are provided.
We try to have the queen bed dressed for you, but occasionally when we have short back to back bookings or discounted stays, we ask you to make the bed yourself with clean linen available.
Having lived between Berlin and Sydney in the past years, we've used Airbnb and similar services many times as both a host and guest. We love to stay in homes we can treat as our own as be able to offer the same service. We are currently spending some time in the country after the birth of our first child and offering our Sydney studio while we're away. We expect guests to treat our home and neighbours with courtesy and leave it as it was found.
We're both big fans of culture, art, nature, similarly-minded people, collaborative consumption and having minimal impact on the environment in our daily activities.
Whilst we often don't meet guests in person, we're always available virtually to respond to questions and have a helper in Sydney who looks after home while we're away.
