Thank you Alison, and thanks for meeting me Barbara, for your lovely clean apartment situated so close to my family and the delightful Balmain cafes and for all the extra nice touches. Gorgeous apartment with deck, extra comfortable bed and waking to the kookaburras and rosellas a treat. The best of all the Airbnb's I've stayed in so far! Good value. Exactly as described. Very highly recommended.

A perfect place to have a holiday in Sydney. The apartment has a relaxing feel and lovely to wake up to all the birds singing. Very convenient to restaurants and shops as well as access to public transport.

The apartment was great, well equipped with everything you needed. The location was brilliant with access to two ferry stops, Balmain and Balmain East and bus stops. Balmain itself is a lovely quiet area and the area has a good selection of shops and cafes. Alison the host was great and also Barbara who met us on the day we arrived. Highly recommended. Thanks for all your help Alison with our luggage problems also.

Wonderful place and so close to shops and restaurants on Darling Street. Allison was away, but I was greeted by Barbara who was extremely helpful. We were given the use of a parking permit while there, which was great. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom had a view of Sydney. We were actually able to see fireworks from Sydney one night. The seating area outside was lovely and private and only for our use while there. Allison provided everything we could need including Opal cards (public transport cards), wine in the fridge, chocolates, etc., as well as a welcome card from Allison and Hugh. Great experience! I highly recommend staying here. Thank you Allison for allowing me and my husband to enjoy your place.

Great location and scenic outlook from the bedroom. Very well-equipped and clean. Alison has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Appreciated all the touches including a parking permit! Thanks to Barbara for taking care of things while Alison was away. The side entrance is tight so if you have large luggage ,enter from the back lane.High;y recommend Alison's place!

I am English, living in Sydney Australia. Married, two daughters. I used to produce science television. I now bring together an international conference of people who produce and broadcast science and history television. It is a unique window on the world and enables me to travel extensively - mostly in Europe and North America, but also recently in Malaysia and China. Our family is passionate about food and wine and we all love to cook. I also love biking and walking, books and theatre. If you stay in our apartment we can give you great leads for enjoying the best Sydney has
to offer.
