This was our first trip to Sydney and we booked this lovely studio for five nights based on the other great guest reviews of the property, the location and of Michael, our host.
Our expectations were exceeded! We were greeted by Michael, on arrival, who provided us with Opal Cards that can be used on all transit in Sydney. He was very helpful with our questions and provided suggestions on sight seeing and getting around Sydney. One very memorable day there was based on Michael’s suggestion to take the ferry to Watson Bay and then on to Manly Beach. We may not have gone otherwise and so glad we did - for the views from the ferry of Sydney Harbor and time spent at Manly Beach was terrific!
Michael provided us with some basic amenities for the studio to get us started - coffee, milk, etc. The studio also exceeded our expectations. It was private also everything was very clean and new - bathroom, kitchenette, nice writing desk. Also, table and chairs on a porch - all behind his larger home - so seemed very private.
For those interested in seeing the North Bondi Beach neighborhood, this is a great place to stay. Bus service is frequent, and it is just a few short blocks from Bondi Beach yet private and far enough away so that it is quiet at night - in a neighborhood of lovely homes and condos. There are also a multitude of coffee shops, small groceries and restaurants within walking distance. With the frequent bus and ferry service, we were able to get around Sydney very easily.
We highly recommend this special place to anyone interested in staying in Sydney in a lovely neighborhood with a very congenial host.

A perfect location for Manly & Freshwater with excellent links via bus and ferries. The view from the balcony was superb ! The apartment was clean and comfortable and equipped with all modern facilities & Lisa was an attentive & friendly host who was just a phone call away.
