Tucked away in Bondi’s backstreets, this unique guesthouse offers the best of both worlds: close enough to experience Bondi’s buzzy atmosphere but equally situated to relax and unwind. There are single and double rooms on offer, as well as spacious, light-filled suites, which include a kitchenette. There’s also a common kitchen area for making breakfast and tea and coffee throughout the day. Just a two-minute stroll from the beach, there are plenty of activities right on the doorstep, including the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk and Bondi Farmers Market (Saturdays 9am-1pm). An express bus runs from Bondi Beach to Circular Quay.
A cool blend of surfers and socialites, Bondi is one the city’s most iconic locations. The beach is perfect for a dip; Gould and Hall Streets are teeming with cosy cafés and boutiques; a slew of yoga and Pilates studios have made the area a hub for healthy living. Over the past few years, Bondi has also become one of the city’s most popular dining destinations. Enjoy a tipple at one of the relaxed wine bars – try Neighbourhood or Bondi Hardware – and sample fresh seafood at Matt Moran’s North Bondi Fish.
