  • Sybil and Jason are an easy-going couple with whom we enjoyed staying. After sharing travel experiences, they gave us great recommendations which we gladly incorporated into our plans :) We got to and still get to see places beyond the typical route up the east coast. Thanks so much for that.

    The room is separate from the house with a private veranda facing the pool and garden. The veranda is even equipped with a hammock where you can spend a lazy afternoon just hanging in there and pet their cute dog Alaska.
    Highly recommended hosts, hope to see you again.

  • Sybil & Jason thank you very much for all your hospitality. The response couldn't been faster considering a challenging situation of last minute accommodation we were facing. Sybil thank you for been so helpful and kind.
    The bed was comfortable, the installations were clean, the bathroom in good conditions, nice pool, good hammock and just 15 min walking from the city. Been in a summer season & tropical area, there were a couple of bugs here and there. Alaska is a very nice and behave dog and Jason & Sibyl were very pleasant company. Muchas gracias

  • Convenient location - on a quiet street moments away from the town centre and beaches, this is the perfect launchpad from which to explore Port Macquarie! The room was very clean upon arrival and supplied with a mini fridge, kettle, plates, cups, bowls, and wineglasses, as well as sponge/soap/towel for washing, which was very convenient when we wanted to have a small snack or drink. The bathroom was clean and tidy, nice hot showers. The hammock out on the timber deck is great for relaxing, and Alaska the dog is super friendly and well behaved. And Sybil and Jason are very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed chatting with them and learning all about the fun and lovely things Port Macquarie has to offer - great place to stay!

  • We enjoyed our 2 day stay with Sybil and Jason and had a great time in Port Macquarie catching up with friends. The accommodation is very private and comfortable but not luxurious. The view from the deck over the pool and the back garden is very relaxing and Sibyl and Jason were great hosts.

  • Even if you can afford 5-star hotel in Port Macquarie, consider a better option - Sybil's and Jason's place. You will have cozy, but 100% private little house with all amenities needed. Very comfortable bed inside, hammock on the covered terrace, no-chlorine swimming pool, palm trees around - everything for a perfect stay.
    It is dead quiet at night, but still just 15-20 minutes walk (3 min drive) from town center with all cafes and restaurants.
    Next time in PM we will stay at this place again!

  • We loved our time at Port Macquarie!!!!! Sybil and Jason (and Alaska) are welcoming, easy to talk to and very, very friendly!! The room and bathroom were spotless and just perfect for us. Their place is located in a nice, quiet area, close to everything. We didn't get to use the pool as we were too busy, but it was clean and Sybil and Jason are only too happy to share it. Great hosts, great time!!! We are already thinking of going back :).

  • Jason & Sybil were lovely hosts and the accommodation was nice, secluded with balcony and private bathroom, and complimentary tea facilities. However it was a little small, I guess it would be better when its warm and sunny and you can open up the door to the balcony and enjoy the pool, but for us and our luggage it was quite cramped. There was no mini-fridge but the hosts let us pop some stuff in their own fridge which was nice. The room was advertised as about $80 per night which isn't too far off the mark for the accommodation provided, but after airbnb add their fee on it ended up being about $90 a night making it seem a little expensive for what it was. For this price I would expect more facilities (bigger room, TV, Fridge, extra pillows etc) as its almost the cost of a motel room.

    Response from Sybil And Jason:

    Hi Natasha and Chase, it was great to have you stay with us. We were glad to be able to accommodate you on such short notice. We certainly do not offer a motel room experience, as there are plenty of these in town. Our offering reflects the spirit of Airbnb, secluded and relaxing, yet central to everything in town. This is generally what our guests are looking for. We note you are new to Airbnb - please note all of our amenities are specified on the Amenities page (wireless, pool, free parking etc), and we cannot control the Airbnb fee. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Port Macquarie. Jason & Sybil.

  • Thanks Sybil and Jason for a most pleasant stay.
    You are very welcoming to your visitors and made us feel very comfortable.
    All the best for future success through Airbnb.

  • Amazing hosts! I really enjoyed my stay at Sybil and Jason's. The room is just what one needs and affords both privacy and if you would like a warm chat then Sybil and Jason are very open and inviting. They are fantastic hosts and their international story, beautiful. Looking forward to having them as guests one day. :)

About
Port Macquarie is our little paradise!Living here was a great lifestyle change from our live in the Middle East. Sybil is Brazilian/Swiss/Polish and Jason is Australian. We've travelled the world together and speak quite a few languages too. On the weekends we're relaxing with friends, family or we're out in the garden taking care of the plants...at the beach or at the pool. During the week we're busy with sports and work. Alaska, our dog, is a really friendly lab. He LOVES having guests over but he also respects guests who do not want to play with him.
