Gorgeous 1 bedroom holiday apartment with sandstone features, very close to Bondi Beach, Tamarama & Bronte Beach too!
This sandstone apartment is located 300 metres to Tamarama Beach & 400 metres to Bondi Beach and was excavated and cut into the Bondi sandstone with the help of the owners friends & children over 3 years. It has sandstone rock walls with polished concrete floors & the ceilings made up of steel beams & plywood.There is also 40 year old timber kayak on the wall , a 1.3 metre wood carved sperm whale on the window sill & a couple of old boat propellers, large anchors and a ships steering wheel to give the room a nautical feel. The apartment is located below the owners home.
Fully furnished, self contained & 85m2 in size. Operational kitchen with gas cook top, electric oven, microwave, fridge, washing machine, dryer & kitchen table.
A queen sized bed is provided for sleeping two people, three single sofa beds are provided if accommodation is required for a third, fourth or fifth person. All bed linen & towels are provided. Separate bathroom with toilet, vanity & shower. Shampoos, conditioner & soaps provided too (please note the bathroom is designed to be a wet room with no shower screen). A ping pong table for your use as well. WiFi is available throughout the apartment.
There is a gas heater for the winter months and two dehumidifiers.
Because the apartment is cut into the natural sandstone rock - there is generally a different climate - cooler than outside in summer & warmer than outside in winter. It can be a humid in the apartment after rain however we have two dehumidifiers if the humidity becomes uncomfortable.
The natural sandstone rock is designed to allow the ground water that naturally comes out of the rock run down over the face of the sandstone and drains to a catchment drain where it is pumped away to the outside. A pump system is also used to remove the shower, toilet, kitchen & washing machine waste water to the outside drainage and system.
NB In times of heavy rain - the apartment may not be the best choice for those who suffer from Asthma.
Beaches - Bondi Beach - is located 4 minutes walk , Tamarama Beach - is located 3 minute walk , Bronte Beach - is located 10 minutes walk.
We have boogie boards & flippers for you to borrow along with soft surfboards for those more adventurous to try stand up surfing - we recommend Bondi Beach for surfing as it is by far the safest of the 3 local beaches and is patrolled by professional lifeguards all year around.
The famous Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is 3 minutes from the front doorstep.This walk takes 2 to 3 hours to complete the return journey.The walk does continue past Coogee for those who may want a longer walk
