About this listing

Nestled in Paddington's most sought-after streets, this supremely private home embraces what Sydney has to offer. Delivering a resort-like ambience in the heart of Paddington. My home is a stroll from vibrant cafés, designer stores and transport

The space

A petite workers cottage built in the 1840's and positioned in the heart of Paddington on a tiny private lane, you'll be in awe of this unique gem as it is the ideal location to explore historical and modern Sydney. Just a few minutes walk you'll find an abundance of cafe's, trendy bars and restaurants, designer clothing labels, Paddington markets, and much more besides. Public transport is easily accessible from this point. Walk into the central CBD in under 15 mins or catch transport in just minutes. One street back from Oxford street and close to Five Ways, its just 10 minutes to Bondi beach and approx 15 minutes (off peak traffic) to airport.

(We can arrange single bedding for 1 additional person. This will be a self inflating double base air bed so more suitable for children. 3 adults travelling might find it squishy as the bedroom is in the open as per the photos, and the spare bed would be in the same area - please advise if required)

Highly recommended. For winter stays, pick up firewood at local servos to burn in the cottage's wood burner. Buy a 10kg bag of kindling and two 15 kg bags of logs and that's enough for two full nights of cottage warmth and ambience. Its a little cracker of a place.

We absolutely loved our stay in this amazing cottage. It's modern but homey and walking distance to great cafes and the main shopping strip in Paddington. Easy to get in and out of and was always great to come home to after a long day out. Looks just like the photos but is so much more when you're actually there. Would stay definitely recommend for anyone looking to stay in the Paddington area. I would be happy to stay here again on my next trip to Sydney.

Absolutely delightful cottage in one of the best positions in Sydney. Perfect cosy couple getaway. Easy walking distance to everywhere. Public transport close by. Great to experience Sydney immersed in the beautiful history of Paddington. Great restaurants and coffee shops nearby. 15 minutes to Bondi & Bronte beach by bus. Jana was great to organise our holiday through. Her Communication was fantastic. We didn't want to leave the cottage. It was everything we hoped it would be and can't wait to come back soon.
