The house was a little older than expected, AC unit had a problem, so it was hot, but the owner responded quickly and brought out fans, but it wasn't really ever fixed. There were several screens broken, so we couldn't open windows, chairs broken in the back (I think the guests before us were pretty rough on the place), and a doorknob broken. But again, they came out and fixed it right away. Great location. Overall pretty good.
This is the perfect house for a family or two couples with young children. We were a family of four from Boston, dropping our youngest off to study abroad at the University of Sydney and our stay was perfect. Clovelly is close enough to the center of Sydney to uber back and forth from wherever you need to be but far enough away from the bustle of all the holiday tourists at this time of year to completely relax. The house is perfectly maintained and the owners managed everything very professionally to make our booking and stay easy. We stayed over New Year's and will never forget this holiday. We swam in the plunge pool daily, enjoyed dinners in Clovelly (walking distance to lovely coffee shops and local pub), caught up with Aussie friends, had an amazing time at close by Tamarama Beach (better than Bondi in my opinion) and also enjoyed a world class dinner in neighboring Coogee. While we were out and about a lot, we also grilled one night in the backyard and enjoyed the ambiance found dining in the gorgeously landscaped backyard. I wish we had more time to cook at home. The indoor kitchen also looks like it belongs in a design magazine. What else can I say? My family loved every minute in the house and wished we owned and lived in this house. No one wanted to leave...A perfect definition of "home away".
