There are two balconies, one accessible from the living area, the other accessible from both bedrooms.

The second bathroom has a tub/shower combination. There is a laundry sink adjacent to the washing machine.
The kitchen opens into the living and dining area. Two people can comfortably work in the kitchen area together. All of the major appliances (washer, dryer, oven, cooktop, microwave and dishwasher) are Miele. The counter tops are granite. The kitchen is fully equipped to service 6 people. The dining table with its 6 chairs is adjacent to the kitchen. The living room has a very comfortable sofa and two armchairs. Also in the living room there is a 32 inch flat screen TV, a DVD player and a stereo system (with CD, Tape player and radio). A desk is available for your laptop usage. There is a broadband internet connection and a regular landline phone. The internet router offers wireless laptop connections and connections for your internet phone.
The apartment is centrally heated and air conditioned and is located on the sixth floor of an attractive building completed in 2002. Access is by lift and the building security is very complete. The building is located on a side street and traffic noises are almost non-existent. Additionally, with concrete floors and ceiling soundproofing, noise from other units is rare.
The Sydney casino (Star City) is 2 minutes from our building and the Casino's Bus and Light Rail station is the closest public transportation location. Buses are a five minute walk from the building. However, with this superb location, it is possible to walk to all of the central Sydney attractions. Darling Harbour, with its museums, the seaquarium, the IMAX theatre, indoor shopping mall, ferry connection to Circular Quay and dozens of sidewalk restaurants is an 8 minute walk. Circular Quay, the Botanical Gardens, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are a 25 minute walk.
There are 2 good supermarkets within a 5 minute walk of our building and there are at least half a dozen eating places closer than the Darling Harbour restaurants. There are also three small parks within a 5 minute walk which provide views of the Harbour Bridge, the entrance to Darling Harbour and Balmain - across the water. It is a wonderful area to walk through prior to breakfast - to get your day off to great start.
Also, please note that, while we will accept 5 and 6 people, there is an additional charge for use of the blowup beds.
