Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Centrally located, this beautifully appointed north-facing corner apartment is filled with natural light and homely touches.

Step inside and relax with a coffee and the morning paper in the delightful winter garden, or curl up with a blanket on the soft, pillow-filled couch for some Netflix (spoiler: that work of art is a TV in disguise).

With all of Canberra’s best restaurants, cafes and shops right downstairs, this luxury one bedroom apartment ticks all the boxes for a great Canberra escape.

The space

“I could live here!” – Gracie

High above Canberra’s famous Lonsdale Street, this apartment has a unique, warm and instantly welcoming charm. Every corner of the space space has been carefully curated to make your stay something special.

Originally designed as a boutique hotel, this is Canberra’s new and architecturally stunning Nibu building. You’ll be staying in one of only a few corner apartments where continuous floor-to-ceiling windows surround you and bathe the space with glorious afternoon sun.

The apartment is secure and finished with the highest quality, premium materials: beautiful polished concrete flooring, rich leather and timber panelling, custom LED under-cabinet lighting and all-brass fittings make this designer series apartment truly one of a kind.

While bright, the apartment feels incredibly cosy and private. The bedroom windows are tinted and there are block-out curtains and blinds throughout. All windows are double glazed to keep you warm in winter and the ducted air conditioning is a godsend during Canberra’s summer.

You won’t just have free WiFi, you’ll have unlimited and blistering fast NBN50 WiFi (because who wants the basic plan?) and, should you wish to mix business with pleasure, the large timber dining table makes for a spacious and bright work area. The apartment includes a beautiful ‘The Frame’ TV with an Ultra-HD 4K Netflix subscription, shampoo, conditioner and body scrub, tea and coffee, a large ironing board, and an Italian-made salon-quality hairdryer.

A secure underground car space is included, too. And, yes, it’s right next to the lift.


Feel like going out? Good. Lonsdale Street is Canberra’s premiere coffee, culture and nightlife district—you literally couldn’t get closer if you tried. All the capital’s best cafés, shops and restaurants are just a lift ride away. And if you don’t feel like changing out of those slippers, Uber Eats will deliver to your door in a heartbeat. There’s an organic grocer, Blackhearts & Sparrows wine store and numerous cute restaurants in the building as well.

What else do you need to know?

- the mattress is a queen, super soft and chiropractor endorsed
- there’s a large, super quiet washer-dryer and iron in the laundry
- a basic selection of breakfast foods (muesli, milk, tea, coffee, etc.) is provided, though you’ll need to stock up for longer stays (the Canberra Centre is a short walk away, or there’s the Coles Express just around the corner).

That’s it!

If you’re looking at this listing and thinking ‘gee this is a bit nice’—you’re not wrong. I didn’t want this to be just another Airbnb. The space has been carefully crafted and filled with beautiful furniture and things for a truly special stay. Welcome to your Canberra sanctuary. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Where you’ll be

Braddon, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Lonsdale Street is at the heart of Canberra’s premiere culture and coffee district. The strip is filled with the capital’s best cafés, bars, restaurants and shops so you won’t have to walk far to get a tasty treat, bargain, or both.

If you’re after coffee or a spot of brunch, in the courtyard below is my favourite café, KYŌ. You can practically smell the flat whites from your balcony. And right across Lonsdale is another local staple, Barrio (pictured in the gallery). Both places are cosy and pour A+ coffee. Check out Bitten Goodfoods for groceries and simple dine-in treats as well as Canberra’s first Blackhearts & Sparrows wine store, also in your building.

As for drinks and dinner, you can’t go past Lazy Su’s vibrant atmosphere and delicious modern Japanese and Korean dishes. Their cocktail list is fun too. Next door is Tipsy Bull, which does a mean deconstructed gin (try the ‘Bloody Shiraz gin’, thank me later) and yum share plates. Grease Monkey and BentSpoke Brewing Co are right around the corner and have been host to many a craft beer and burger session, as has Hopscotch, which is also great for a relaxed schooner or two (especially in their beer garden when it’s warm).

For a more traditional but no less delicious meal, play ‘spot the politician’ at Italian and Sons or eightysix. And you might not think it from the street, but Civic Pub has good local vibes and a solid kitchen. Top your night off with an ice-cream from Messina, also right next door. (Did I mention how close you are to everything?)
