10 of the Best Sydney Airbnbs

I have raved on in plenty of my travel posts about how much I love Airbnb, but I also know how overwhelming it can be deciding on a place to stay, especially when you aren’t familiar with your surroundings. I have been a Sydneysider for 8 years now and can confidently say that I know this city pretty damn well, so I thought I would compile a post of local listings. After quite a few hours of browsing through what Sydney has to offer, I have found 10 of the most awesome Airbnb’s with the highest ratings that are located in the best suburbs to stay in when visiting this fine city. From the inner city to the beach — I got ya covered.

1. STUDIO IN DARLINGHURST

This gorgeous warehouse studio apartment is located right in the heart of Sydney’s LGBTQ community and is also home to some of the best coffee in Sydney. It’s a pretty great spot to be as Sydney CBD is just a 15 minute walk.

2. STUDIO IN POTTS POINT

This studio apartment has won many a design award for it’s smart and creative layout and also has incredible views of the CBD. Right in the heart of Potts Point, you are spoiled for choice with cafes, restaurants and shops and are also just a 20 minute walk from the city. Ideal.

3. TERRACE IN PADDINGTON

This amazing mid-century styled, 2 bedroomed terrace in one of Sydney’s most picturesque inner city suburbs is serious house goals, LOVE the vintagey vibe. Right off Oxford Street’s shopping strip, you are within walking distance to trendy surrounding suburbs Darlinghurst and Surry Hills, as well as the city.

4. BONDI BEACH APARTMENT

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t include a few Bondi options and this fun, colourful 2 bedroomed apartment is smack bang right in the heart of Bondi, footsteps from the beach. The perfect summer pad.

5. LOFT IN NEWTOWN

So I may be a little biased towards the Inner West as it’s where I live, but Newtown is an awesome suburb so I had to include it — from vintage stores to live music to some of the best restaurants in Sydney, it’s definitely an amazing place to explore and this loft apartment is literally footsteps away from the always lively main drag, King Street.

6. SURRY HILLS TERRACE

Surry Hills is probably the most hipster suburb of Sydney, so if that’s your thang, this 2 bedroomed industrial style terrace home has your name all over it. In a quiet laneway off buzzing Crown Street, you are walking distance to some of the best food, coffee and shopping Sydney has to offer.

7. PADDINGTON HOME

Another gorgeous spot in Paddington, this 2 bedroomed house is a great option if you are traveling in a group. Loving the open plan living space that flows out into the outdoor courtyard.

8. APARTMENT IN BONDI

Directly across the street from Bondi Icebergs, it doesn’t get more iconic than this. This two bedroomed South Bondi apartment has the most insane panoramic beach and ocean views. Imagine waking up to this every morning?

9. TAMARAMA APARTMENT

A little further along the coastline is Tamarama and this 3 bedroomed apartment has the most epic views overlooking the ocean, the location is pretty fab too as you just so happen to be within walking distance to at least 5 different beaches – Tamarama, Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee!

10. OPERA HOUSE VIEWS IN KIRRIBILLI

Perhaps saving the best for last with this one — Kirribilli is probably the most iconic suburb in Sydney in terms of harbour views and this apartment is no exception, directly across from Sydney’s most famous landmarks, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, I couldn’t think of more of an ideal place to take in quintessential Sydney.
