Cheryl & Robert were prompt & efficient in their communication & went out of their way to welcome us to their comfortable, well located apartment with great views & quality appliances/furnishings (divine bed!).

About our home
Our three year old apartment with elevator access enjoys a panoramic view over parts of the harbour and river to the Blue Mountains, with balcony and access to 17th floor roof terrace. Downtown Sydney and the Opera House are 10 minutes away by bus, which stops at the door every 5 minutes. Three train stations within 15 minutes walk, or 5 minutes by bus.
Coffee shops, hairdresser and convenience store in building yet close to foreshore walks along the harbour. Crows Nest village, with countless restaurants, shops and markets, is a 5 minute level walk. Safe harbour and surf beaches within 15-30 minutes by bus. Sydney is a city of 4,500,000 people with a vibrant multi-ethnic cultural and night life, abundant natural beauty and good public transport access to a broad range of tourist activities.
Summer temperatures range from the mid to high 20s Celsius (80F) while winter temperatures average 16 degrees (60F) with plentiful sunshine, perfect weather for whale-watching and hiking in the many national parks and reserves. Sofa converts to two single beds.

“All great thank you, parents had a great time :)”
“Cheryl and Robert's apartment was an ideal location for our visit to Sydney. Very central to the city centre - about a 10 minute bus ride, and bus stop 2 min walk. The Crows Nest area was also a pleasant surprise as it boasts a charming district of quality restaurants, most with outdoor dining terraces. Grocery store around the corner. The apartment is small but very well laid out and well equipped, with a very comfortable bed. We loved the balcony to enjoy a morning coffee (often visited by friendly beautiful birds) or an evening glass of wine ... stunning views of the harbour. Cheryl was a thoughtful host with excellent communication. Thank you Robert and Cheryl! ”
“Cheryl was a delight to communicate with, making the setting up of the swap easy and hassle free. The apartment was very well situated for exploring Sydney, near to buses and trains. The neighbourhood was convenient for shops and restaurants with level walking, yet wonderful views from the apartment across the harbour and access to a lovely roof garden with 360 degree views. The apartment itself was quiet, well appointed and very comfortable. Altogether a great stay.”
“Robert & Cheryl were wonderful hosts, extremely helpful. Their home is in an excellent location, very easy to get into central Sydney. It is a quick bus ride into the center about 10/15 minutes. North Sydney is fabulous! We loved the location.”
“Great location for access to the centre of Sydney and locally for shops and restaurants. The flat is spacious enough for two people with all amenities that you could wish for and Cheryl was extremely helpful in the run up to our stay. Highly recommended.”
“I have just returned from five nights at Robert and Cheryl's apt. It was fantastic, a modern and safe building, Lovely apt. The location in Sydney is second to none just perfect, you can walk into the city in under 30 mins Over the Sydney Harbour bridge or hop on a bus across the road. I dined out several times in Crows Nest itself a buzzing and lively neighbour hood with endless cafes ,shops and fine dining. It was all perfect, I would recommend this apt. To any solo or couples wanting to see the real Sydney and stay in a spotless modern apt.”
“Robert and Cheryl's place was excellent. It is very convenient to get to the CBD using public transportation. There are markets nearby if you want to cook and of course there are lots of good restaurant options. The place itself is very comfy and welcoming. You have a beautiful view of the harbor from the balcony and you can also access the roof of the building (which I believe is something like 18 stories up). Robert and Cheryl were great hosts. They were very clear in their communication and made sure to think of everything needed to make our stay go well without a hitch. We really enjoyed our stay in Sydney and would love to swap with them again in the future.”
“What a fabulous location. Cosy with everything you could need and beautifully maintained. Cheryl and Roberts home is perfectly situated to explore Sydney and has great views from the balcony. They could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Wonderful warm-hearted couple and I hope we stay in touch for years. They also left our home in perfect condition. You don't necessarily need a car here unless you particularly want one as the buses stopping outside go everywhere. Wonderful trip. ”
“We had a great two weeks in Robert & Cheryl's apartment. It was really easy to get places with bus stops being close by. We went to several restaurants, all of which we enjoyed very much. The apartment has a lovely view from the third floor. Woolworths supermarket was close by and it was a nice area to be in.”
