NO 84 must be one of Syd­ney’s best short-stay apart­ment rentals. On Queen Street, Wool­lahra (ac­cess from Smith Street), it is tucked up­stairs be­hind a swish bou­tique, with se­cure court­yard park­ing. The airy mas­ter cham­ber has a four-poster dressed in best-qual­ity cot­ton and cov­ers, and tum­bling flo­ral cur­tains with prop­erly thick lin­ings; a smaller sun­room opens to a deck with a bar­be­cue and can be con­fig­ured as a sec­ond bed­room. There are steps (from the down­stairs en­try vestibule and a few more from the kitchen to the lounge and mas­ter bed­room) so it’s not an op­tion for wheel­chairs or even, per­haps, for scam­per­ing chil­dren. It feels slightly Parisian in the kitchen with its ate­lier-style sky­light and glass-fronted ar­moire, but com­pletely con­tem­po­rary when it comes to in­clu­sions and fixtures, from Ne­spresso ma­chine and Smeg ap­pli­ances to sup­plied break­fast pro­vi­sions, WiFi, Foxtel and cof­fee-ta­ble books. Self-cater­ing? You are min­utes away from a bak­ery, fine-foods pur­veyor Si­mon John­son, and Vic­tor Churchill, Syd­ney’s top butch­ery. Men­tion T&I when book­ing with Al­luxia by Oc­to­ber 12 and re­ceive an Ae­sop Jet Set Kit ($41); $295 a night (min­i­mum two nights). More: al­luxia.com.
