Magpie Apartment at The Rocks

We were initially going to stay by the beach in Manly, and at the last minute, we decided to stay in Sydney. Cameron had a couple of work meetings in the Central Business District (CBD), and it ended up being much better being in Sydney.

Once we decided to stay in the city, we started looking on Airbnb and found this place in Millers Point. It looked newly renovated, clean, large enough for the four of us, and close to the places we wanted to go. Karen responded quickly with confirmation. I asked for recommendations for storing our luggage until check-in time, and Karen offered up the ground floor apartment for storage. It was so easy to find and off-load our suitcases.

We walked through the Sydney Observatory gardens, under Bradfield Highway (the road that takes you over the Harbour Bridge) and we were in The Rocks. All within 10 minutes. Five minutes later we were walking around the Opera House and on our way to the Botanic Gardens.

After roaming The Rocks, the area around the Opera House, and getting Devonshire Tea, we were worn out. We wandered back to the apartment to wait for it to be cleaned. We ran into Karen, and she was very friendly and sweet. She let us in as soon as the cleaners were done, about 45 minutes before check-in.

The apartment did not disappoint. It looked like no one had ever used it! The wooden floors were gorgeous, and the simple decorations left room for our stuff without feeling overcrowded. The living area was perfect for the four of us, and the kitchen was outfitted with most things you would need if you wanted to cook. There are lots of restaurants nearby, so we didn’t cook anything!

The beds were comfortable as was the living area furniture. We brought in takeaway food for dinners, and the dining table suited us. We would happily stay here again!
