Great selection of Australian surf and lifestyle magazines in the room.

Great bathrooms with fun, colourful tiles (not seen here), big round mirrors and deep bathtub.

The eclectically-styled lobby.

The lobby from another angle - surf themed waiting area.

An internal look at the building from the outside - a communal area shared with the neighbouring luxury apartment building in the same complex.

The view from South Bondi. Epic sunny days and warm, balmy pink sky nights. Bondi is a real dream to live or holiday.
