Margaritha was a very kind and welcoming host. We didn't have too much interaction as she was working and we were gone for most of our stay.
Margaritha warned us that her two older boys would be there and we were ok with it, but it was quite crowded in the small 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment, and quite frustrating when I needed to use the bathroom and often it was occupied.
The main thing I was very frustrated about was that the price that airbnb gave me and what Margaritha said I needed to pay were different. So after the booking went through, she told me airbnb quoted me wrong and I needed to pay her an additional $160. I had no choice but to do it because it was New Years and we had no other place to go. I didn't know if this was allowed, but just went with it due to it being New Years.
I don't want to make this all sound bad, like I said she was very nice and her place is very close, walking distance to Bondi beach which is amazing! The bed was very comfortable and the room was all we needed to sleep and relax. And Margaritha provided us with a few options for breakfast on the second day and after which was very nice. This is a great location if you want to be close to Bondi beach!
Very surprised at your review, I was very clear that winter fees are totally different from summer specially New Years which is considered ( high season ) and we are in Bondi! I was very clear to you about this, and you agreed to pay the extra 40 dollars per night. And yes you had plenty of other choices because you booked five months in advance. On regards to the apartment being too crowded I called airbnb and told them that due to a change in my situation my two sons would be here for a few days, and I didn't want you guys to come here if you thought that it would be uncomfortable, airbnb response to that was to let you know and if you were not happy they would help you find another accommodation. I called you and talked to your husband Jordan about this and he said that you guys didn't mind at all. So once again I did the right thing and acted with integrity, I kept the booking I could have cancelled it but instead went ahead even though it meant making my own family uncomfortable . So the conclusion to this is that your review is not accurate nor fair and I think that you are not very nice guests to have. After this would not recommend anyone having you too much drama over things that you knew already.
I stayed for at the apartment for two weeks and it was a great stay. The apartment is right near Bondi and Tamarama beach, and just down the road are a bunch of restaurants and shops. The apartment is very nice and modern, very clean and well kept. Margaritha is a very sweet host, and her kids are very welcoming and respectful. If you are looking for beach living it doesn't get much better than Bondi!
Margaritha was a great host. Very welcoming and alway happy to have a chat over a glass of wine.
Location is perfect. A couple of block to the beach and to all of Bondi's attractions.
Very comfortable bed and a very clean and cosy apartment.
Will happily recommend
it was a great experience to stay in Margaritha's apartment!
when we put the key in the door ,we really felt like coming home! which is exactly what it is, someone's home! and we stayed there for 21 nights!!
Margaritha is warm without being intrusive, and very hospitable, and she prepares really delicious cakes!!! and cakes are there just for you!!
The apartment surpassed the pictures because Margaritha just moved to the apartment, so everything was brand new!!
We enjoyed the clean and welcoming room,the comfortable bed,clean showers and toiletries.
the apartment is in the BEST location of Sydney,with plenty of restaurants,shops, and supermarkets.
It was very easy to get into the city by bus,in fact you can get the 333 or 380 bus to bondi junction for all your shopping at westfield shopping center and cinema, train station, or stay on to be taken to circular quay in the CBD; but much more relaxing experience to be based on the beach!! and next to the famous coastal walk from bondi beach to coogee!!
