Quirky and Cool Sydney Airbnbs

Heading to Sydney but seeking a different accommodation experience?

At Airbnb Genius, we’ve handpicked four unique Airbnb experiences located in different areas of the city, from the harbour to the Blue Mountains.


Stay on a yacht with the best views of Sydney

There’s no better way to experience Sydney than to float on its famous harbour, and this Airbnb listing offers the opportunity to do just that.

The boat is a 40-foot Jeanneau yacht moored directly in front of the Harbour Bridge.

Despite being on a boat, this Airbnb does have some room to move around with two full sized beds, plus a drop down saloon table into a 3rd full size bed, two bathrooms, kitchen and dining area.

The listing even boasts a laptop friendly workspace if you need to get a quick bit of work done during your holiday.

Here’s what guests are saying about this Sydney Airbnb:

Million dollar view and a lovely boat with everything we needed onboard. Would definitely recommend as a unique and enjoyable way to experience the harbour!

The boat was in the most mind blowing position on the harbour, literally next to Luna park and the harbour bridge. The boat it’s self was stunning with huge beds and every ammenity you could need.”

Bondi Beach Perched by the Sea

Enjoy waking up to a sea breeze directly overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Just a short troll down to Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach, this Airbnb is in a prime location for a beachside holiday. While the balcony and view steal the show, the rest of the home is similarly spectacular and stylishly decorated.

Across the road is Sydney’s famous Bondi Icebergs, and easy transport by bus to other locations around the city.

Massive Warehouse Loft Apartment

Marrickville is one inner Sydney’s trendiest suburbs, and this large warehouse conversion is the ideal spot to take in the area’s local charm and character.

Located above a working art studio, this is one of Australia’s most interesting and quirky Airbnb listings.

Here’s what guests say about the apartment:

This is an amazing space – arty & very roomy – we felt st home as soon as we entered. It’s in a great neighbourhood with plenty of on street parking. The space itself has everything you could possibly need & more

Scott’s place is a hidden gem. The loft space allows you to relax in the open and without feeling confined as many hotel rooms do. The eclectic mix of furniture and accessories capture your imagination and you will discover new things throughout your stay.

The Enchanted Cave


This one’s a little bit of a drive outside of Sydney, but still easily accessible from the city. We’re talking caves. Like hole in a rock kind of thing. This cliff top stay is built into a natural rock platform and has a small front door opening (Hobbit style) which means you’ll score front seats to the best damn view anyone could ever lay eyes on and a unique spa experience.

Here’s what guests are saying about this unique space:

A very special place with its own piece of the Blue Mountains escarpment in its backyard! Simply breathtaking.
