Gilbert's property is very conveniently located near many shops, cafes, and entertainment venues. It was so easy to stroll out and find a good cup in a few minutes! The unit is modern, quiet and clean. Gilbert was a great friendly host to us and always had a helpful recommendation about what to check out. We enjoyed a chat I've evening as well, so he is the kind of guy that makes you feel at home. I highly recommend a stay here and I, for one, plan on returning.
Very nice apartment centrally located with convenient access to buses heading to both the circular quay (Sydney opera house, harbor bridge and Rocks area) and Bondi Beach. We walked easy 15 minute stroll to the Queen Victoria Building (QVB to locals) for ultimate shopping experience and Hyde Park. The room was very comfortable and clean with ensuite bathroom complete with all the bath accessories. We enjoyed talking with Gilbert and he was a very thoughtful host providing OPAL transit cards good for travel on the local buses, ferries and trains and suggesting ideas for seeing the highlights of Sydney. He also assisted us with taxi transportation to the airport and even waited with us outside until our taxi picked us up! We highly recommend Gilbert's Condo for anyone planning a holiday to Sydney!
Gilbert was very welcoming and thoughtful host. It was the airbnb experience for my friend and me. He made us feel very comfortable and right at home. He was eager to help us with restaurant recommendations, sight seeing and transportation logistics. The apartment location is absolutely remarkable. We typically able to walk or take public transportation everywhere. It was a great example experience and would love to stay with Gilbert again.
Gilbert was very welcoming. He has a beautiful apartment in a great location - easy to access the many restaurants/bars/cafes in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills. We enjoyed having the privacy of our own master suite - the high quality linen and bathroom products were much appreciated. Also lovely to eat breakfast sitting in the outdoor entertaining area - was great to have the opportunity to chat with Gilbert at this time too. Would definitely like to stay here again on our next trip to Sydney! Thanks Gilbert! Erin and Elle.
Gilbert was a fantastic host: Communicative, welcoming, informative... He was able to provide us with comfortable, spacious and affordable accommodation smack bang in the middle of vibrant Darlinghurst. We loved our stay and will certainly make use of his lovely room again!
We had a most enjoyable stay at Gilbert's apartment. He is a very genial host, interesting and helpful. His apartment is fabulous, comfortable and well equipped. It is also in an excellent position for exploring Sydney. It would be difficult to find anywhere better.
Myself and my boyfriend stayed with Gilbert for 3 nights. The room was spacious and the location of the flat was great for our city adventures. Gilbert was a very friendly host who offered those little extras such as milk, juice, an opal card we could top up, a folder with useful information on what to do in Sydney and he even did a load of washing for us! Instructions for locating the flat was clear and easy to follow and whilst we didn’t have time to take advantage of the pool and gym it was nice to know we had this as an option if we wanted to.
