Hello! Welcome to our studio which was renovated in 2016. The 40 sqm studio apartment is cosy, clean & self-contained. It is a short walk to cafes in Bronte, Centennial Park, and buses to nearby Bondi Junction and CBD. Bronte Beach is less than 15 minutes walk away, or a 5 minute bus ride.
The studio is used for Air BnB only. No one resides there at other times.
The studio is architecturally designed and renovated in 2015.
The studio features an open space living room and dining area.
The bedroom and living room are in an open space (ie not a separate one bedroom). The living room has a 2 and 3 seater couch which is newly reupholstered. The couches are very comfortable but it is not a sofa bed. For this reason, the studio is ideal for two adult guests, couples or small families
It has its own kitchen with ILVE electric stove top and oven, fridge, kettle, toaster; 32" Hitachi flat screen TV; LG microwave oven; iron and small ironing board.
In the kitchen, there are all your basic utensils like pots and pans, salad spinner.
We provide basic food items like tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper, Vegemite and butter.
We use re-usable washable sponge cloths where we can, to save disposing sponges into the environment. The sponge cloths are washed with the linen with each guest change, and there also clean spare cloths.
We also provide re-usable shopping bags for groceries for your use. There are 2 KeepCups for take away coffees for you to use while you are staying here.
The bathroom is small compared to the rest of the unit, due to construction constraints when we refurbished. However, the bathroom features a rain shower, and the shower itself is quite roomy. There is underfloor heating in the bathroom, which runs in winter. Shower gel, shampoo and conditioner (pump size) is provided, as are toilet paper and tissues. Cotton balls and buds. Also, a hair dryer and an international adapter for use. If you run out of toilet paper, we are happy to re-supply.
One hand towel, bath mat, and one bath towel per guest. No face washers are provided unless requested, as a few has been taken by guests in the past.
GHD curler and Nespresso machine available for borrow for free. Just let me know beforehand.
If you need a portacot, we may have one available for hire for $15/stay (veebee brand). 1 set of cot sheet will be provided. There are toys and books and baby blankets for babies, and cutlery for kids. And we can provide bottle warmer and steriliser upon request.
In the bedroom space, there is a Queen bed with posturepedic (medium in firmness) mattress; fan/heater. All linen and towels are supplied. Extra linen upon reasonable request at no extra cost.
All the pillows have pillow protectors. The quilt is also sprayed with anti-bacterial spray.
Air conditioning available only in the hot summer months from December to February. Bar heater available upon request in winter.
However, if a guest would like to use the aircon outside of December to February, the cost is $5/day extra to cover energy bills.
In terms of laundry, there is a washing machine, laundry detergent; a drying rack and pegs are provided.
Also included are a small laundry basket, two beach towels, beach bag and sunscreen, eco shopping bags and an umbrella; garment hooks and hangers.
CLEANING AND LAUNDRY FEE
Cleaning fee of $90 consists of $65 in professional cleaning fee and $25 in professional laundromat charges, which are outsourced services to local small businesses. (I foot an extra $10-15 of these costs) The cleaning fee helps to keep the unit in the high standard of cleanliness and tidiness which we feel is important for guests. The laundry charges ensure the linens and towels are washed and sanitised for guest usage.
The cleaning fee may seem steep but it's pretty standard price for Sydney. Also it's not easy to find a reliable cleaner, who will clean the unit on weekends and public holidays to cater to check ins.
And final point. Strictly no parties, no drugs.
We love Bronte because of its relaxed village vibe. Within walking distance, there is Eugene's cafe, Three Blue Ducks, Orchard Street juicery and Cali Press juices and two convenience stores. Down at Bronte Beach, there is a strip of cafes.
Picturesque Centennial Park is a 10 minute walk.
Bondi Junction, Bondi Beach, Paddington and the CBD are all a short bus or cab ride which depart regularly 100m from the studio doorstep.
If you have a young child with you, there are plenty of playgrounds within walking distance, and playgroups too.
So if you want to avoid the hustle bustle of staying in the city, but still be close enough to it, try our studio in Bronte. All the reviewers love the peacefulness of Bronte and the studio's vicinity to cafe and beaches, and easy fast commute to city/airport/shops.
