Welcome! This apartment will suit a short term eco-conscious traveller and visitor to Sydney. The sofa futon in the living room, which is ideal for ONE person (no couples). I live in a modern 2 bedroom apartment with a flatmate in Redfern (5 minute walk to Central Station (citycentre), Redfern station, close to shopping centre, pubs, restaurants, amenities). Comes with a fully equipped gym and pool - which is an added bonus so you can unwind and have a work out during your stay. There is also a vegetable/herb garden (mint, coriander, parsley, tomato, basil) on the Rooftop, which you are welcome to take when cooking. It is next to a four-lane road and sometimes can be noisy (although it quietens down at night).
Ideally this would suit an easy going, down to earth, eco-friendly, vegetarian-friendly traveller. Non-smoker and mature traveller who is sensible and clean up after themselves. I look forward to meeting interesting people on their journeys through Sydney.
A bit about the area Redfern: traditionally, it has been known for being a shady area, but in the past 10 year has seen major changes and gentrification. These days, its a hip place with lot of trendy bars, cafes, parks but still retaining its affordability in price. There is an cheap Chinese vegetable grocer, Vietnamese bread shop, local independent grocery store and organic cafes nearby.
If you are booking with me, please write more about yourself, the reason you're visiting Sydney and add a picture of yourself too. I'd like to know who I'm sharing my space with. It will be nice if you treat the house like your own.
Please print a map from (website hidden) map, if you're coming by taxi or train to ensure you don't get lost. If coming by train, the nearest stop is Redfern station.
needed a place to crash for two days after a long flight from london. place was perfect. even though he was booked up he gave me the couch and slept on the floor. highly recommended. thanks
I stayed two nights at Kevin's place. Kevin is a really nice guy, and he will make you feel comfortable as soon as you come into his appartment! His place is clean and really nice. It's also well located (Central Station 10 min walk) and you'll find all what you need (restaurants, cafes, groceries stores) around the corner. I would definitely recommend Kevin's accomodation to all my friends !
Loved my stay with Kevin! Attended a busy conference schedule at a nearby hotel and then could come to relax at Kevin's place that felt very comfortable with a relaxed environment and a home away from home. Thanks very much!
Had a great stay with Kevin in Sydney! He was very friendly and I felt very welcome in his home. The apartment is great and well situated. I would definitely recommend staying there!
I thoroughly enjoyed the stay with Kevin. He is such a good and helpful host. His apartement is absolutly nice and it is very easy to feel yourself at home. I can abolutly recommend a stay.
A nice place and location to stay for a few days! Kevin is a nice guy and a great host!
Though I had booked the couch in the living room, Kevin graciously let me stay in the bedroom when another booking fell through.
He's an exceedingly accommodating host, helping me with transit questions, printing a boarding pass for me. His neighbourhood, Redfern, is filled with little cafes and restaurants, and the CBD is only a 20 minute walk away. Very easy to get anywhere in Sydney from his place.
Kevin is a very knowledgable and easy-going host. He speaks good English, pays good attention to the guest's comfort and also gives very good recommendation to some of the tourist's attraction.
It's a great and cozy place. It is about 10-15mins walk along Regent St to Central Station. There is a very nice park nearby for jogging or relaxing. I feel very comfortable and I really enjoy my stay here.
I had a great time staying at Kevin's place. He is a great host, was always available to give you precious tips about Sydney.
His apartment is *very* close to Sydney CBD - you can walk to (almost) every place. I only used the transit system two times during my stay - I walked a lot!
His place is close to the train station, which easy to access from (and to) the airport.
If you want to talk about food, Kevin will help you with great tips around Sydney! (a great place he sent me was Petaling Street Malaysian Hawker Food - EXCELENT!!!)
Thank you SO MUCH for being the host during my stay! It was really great! I hope to see you soon - this time, I will be there for a longer time! :-)
My first AirBnb stay! Kevin made it so easy... Casual, friendly, accomodating. First night on the couch was a little noisy for me - I'm a light sleeper. And the 2nd and 3rd nights were in the peaceful back bedroom - slept like a log. Super handy location to the conference event I was at plus the train. I'd stay with Kevin again!
