"Great location, but you might have noisy neighbours"

One block away from the beach, so in less then 3 min you can reach the nice sand. Close to buses ( they work all day and all night) . It's far enough from the pubs, that you don't hear the noises and close enough for you to walk to them. not dangerous , so if you come home late at night, its ok.

We have lived here for 3 years now, and have noise issues within the building. It is an old building so the acoustics are really really bad. We can hear our neighbours doing everything! We can hear them cook, blow dry their hair, even flush the toilet! downstairs neighbour has a ceiling fan, and was driving us crazy( yes, we did try to solve the situation with talks , we even offered to buy them a new fan!anyway, won't discuss that here), and the upstairs neighbour walks really heavily..which during the day we don't care..but at night it seems like our ceiling will fall on top of us!

Normally don't have music problems with neighbours within building . But the building right next to me..wow...there are a lot of tourists and students , and they quite often have loud parties. But they are always moving out, and new people moving in.... so one month can be bad, but the other can be good. we were able to solve that that issue...we changed our windows to double glazed, so we don't hear their parties...

So if you are thinking of living in this street , check out the apartment and think about if this kind of noise will irritate you.

We really enjoy this area! but the building not so much.

We work in Sydney CBD , and it takes around 30 min to get to work by car. If we leave home at 7:40..no traffic and can get there in 20...leave 5 min after that...too late. Fridays are actually ok and school holidays! yay! no traffic at all! but we drive via old south head, because bondi road is blocked all the time. By bus, it takes 50-60 min. if you take the 333, prepay it take around 40 min.

I think the neighbourhood is dirty. We are the same council as Vaucluse and I don't see random garbage in their streets. I think its because there are a lot of people that move out of the houses/apartments to go overseas, and seeing they wont be come back don't care to throw away their rubbish properly and just leave it in front of wherever they were living.

Cockroaches...well ..Bondi is well known for the little cockroaches I think they are the called the german roaches. We fortunately haven't had that problem! But before we moved in the apartment we put 6 bombs( supposed to put 2) and every year we call pest control, even though we don't have any problems. but all my other friends that live here...their apartments are just disgusting!

parking is bad.. but you can get a sticker that entitles you to park almost everywhere around your house. but summer weekends, if we go out...we can only come back after 5pm, because its really hard to find street parking.but still, I prefer to have a car.
