Sunny garden apartment in inner Sydney

An attractive, well located one bedroom apartment opening onto a lush garden. Located in Haberfield, a heritage suburb in Sydney's inner west. Harborside walks and parkland and great restaurants and cafes within 2minutes walk

The space
My garden apartment is located on the lower floor of my home. It is completely self contained with separate entrance so you are ensured of privacy. The apartment is simply but tastefully furnished with polished concrete floors with rugs and contemporary furniture. It has a lovely light and spacious feel because it opens onto a lush garden with double glass doors in both the living area and bedroom. It is very cool in summer and easy to heat in winter.

The bathroom has a shower and is an open "wet room' style with modern fittings, blue Italian floor tiles and inset mosaic tiles on the walls.

The living area has kitchen with marble benchtop, small cooktop and kitchen appliances. It is an open area with lounge and a small dining area with dining table and chairs that looks out onto the garden. There are bookcases stocked with books for your enjoyment as well as a tv.

All bed linen and towels are supplied and wi fi internet is included.

The apartment is located in Haberfield, an inner western suburb of Sydney, which specialises in everything Italian. There is an Italian supermarket and delicatessen as well as numerous specialist gourmet shops including a cheese shop, bread shop, pasta shop and many restaurants and cafes.

Buses into the city go regularly from across the road and the train station is just 10 mins away. A bus trip to the centre of the city takes 20 minutes.

You will be just minutes from Iron Cove bay, which is an extension of Sydney Harbour. If you are into running, walking or cycling there is a fantastic bike and walking path that circles the bay. You can access this path just down the hill from the apartment.

Suburbs such as Newtown, with its many interesting shops, cinema and restaurants are nearby and there is a modern cinema just 5 minutes away in the next suburb of Leichhardt.

Guest access
You have direct access to the garden from your apartment where you can use the clothes line and enjoy relaxing. All kitchen equipment is provided, including a new washing machine, 2 burner cooktop, toaster and convection microwave.
It is also close to cinemas and entertainment precincts in the city and Leichhardt and Newtown.

Lynne's apartment is really cute and nicely decorated with a beautiful backyard. It is located in the completely wonderful suburb of Haberfield, which has great Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes and little shops. The buses are convenient for getting into downtown Sydney - it's 30 min from the door taking the bus to the University of Sydney. There's a beautiful park really close by with tennis courts and a great path for running and cycling. I really enjoyed my 3 month stay!

I have spent about a year in Lynne’s flat in Haberfield: it has everything to make someone happy! The location is perfect, with many shops and good restaurants nearby as well as close access to public transport. Haberfield is a quiet, safe area and people are very friendly in this suburb. The University of Sydney is only a short bus-trip away. The flat is fully furnished, and opens towards a luxurious garden: it really feels like you live in your own house! It has a good gas-heater for the ‘cold’ months and it is also easy to keep the flat cool during summer thanks to its large windows on both sides. I have spent many happy days working at home in Lynne’s flat and would not hesitate to recommend it to any academic looking for a quiet, beautiful place to stay in Sydney!

I loved it there so much I stayed there twice. I felt like I was in a small Italian town, not a big city, staying there. But it was still very close to the action in the downtown/CBD. I would recommend the apartment for anyone that wants a cozy neighborhood in a big city.

We stayed in Lynne’s lovely flat from February to July 2014. We had expected to leave at the beginning of May and extended our stay… twice – that says it all really!

I spent a wonderful 4 months living at Lynne's apartment in Haberfield while on a visiting fellowship at Sydney Uni. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone undertaking a sabbatical at Sydney Uni. I was extremely happy there.

My wife and three year-old daughter and I stayed at Lynne's place for three weeks in January. It's a great little home from home in Sydney, just near many Italian restaurants and a great Italian supermarket. Highly recommended and I hope we'll be back sometime sooner rather than later!

My girlfriend and I spent 3 months in this place in spring/summer of 2012 and we loved staying there. Lynne, the owner, is absolutely lovely and was very helpful. Staying at her home was a pleasure and we would return any time.

About Me
I'm a freelance writer and jouranlist and like to travel as much as possible and have travelled extensively throughout Europe and Asia. I love to welcome overseas visitors to my home so that they can explore Sydney. The apartment is self-contained so there is complete privacy in a sun-filled space that open out onto a lush garden. There are bookshelves full of books that I have enjoyed for guests to read at their leisure.

I enjoyed my time in this apartment in a quiet residential area but with easy access to shops, buses, light rail and good walks close by. The apartment looks out onto a great garden.

As the apartment is underneath the house you can hear people moving about upstairs so if you are noise sensitive this could be something to consider.

Lynne was easy to communicate with and respectful of privacy. I would happily stay again.

I stayed in Lynne's apartment twice for 6 months. It is in an absolute wonderful Italian neighborhood. There are cafes, bakeries, patisseries, pizza shops, well stocked grocery store, hair and nail salons and deli all in less than a five minute walk. The neighborhood is also very nice with beautiful confederation style homes. It has the highest home ownership in Sydney, I believe, and it shows, as everyone keeps their gardens and homes in immaculate shape. A longer walk will take you to nice walking/biking trails around the inner harbor. The apartment itself is nice and is stock with all the necessities for a short to moderate term stay. I loved the large french doors opening to a beautiful but somewhat unkept garden. The place could use a new paint job but is a good price for what else is available in Sydney. I loved it there so much I stayed there twice. I felt like I was in a small Italian town, not a bit city, staying there. But it was still very close to the action in the downtown/CBD. I would recommend the apartment for anyone that wants a cozy neighborhood in a big city. Excellent Danielle 2/25/2015 7:18:00 PM
We stayed in Lynne’s lovely flat from February to July 2014. We had expected to leave at the beginning of May and extended our stay… twice – that says it all really! Lynne’s welcome put us at ease and she was available to answer questions but incredibly respectful of our privacy, which we appreciated since we were recuperating from some busy years.

The flat is comfortable with everything you need. It’s cool in the summer and easy to warm in the winter. The garden is an absolute treasure. We cooked many meals on the BBQ as well as simply enjoying the outlook onto the well-designed garden.

Haberfield is a lovely Italian community and part of the reason we so enjoyed our stay here. There are great food shops and restaurants (as well as a library) and people stop and talk to each other in the street.

Another of the highlights is the proximity to the Bay Run around Iron Cove. This is a lovely outdoor area ideal for walking, biking and running as well as great spots to stop for coffee!

The bus connections to the city are frequent and regular and the train and light rail are within easy walking distance.

We recommend Lynne’s unreservedly if you are looking for a special experience in Sydney.
