Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sean & Lyn's property is terrific, really modern, functional and in an excellent location about 3 minutes walk to all the public transport you could need. They're very easy to deal with and met me at the property with keys to show me around. The roof terrace is fabulous! We got lucky and watched an amazing lightning show across the city. As others have mentioned, there are very generous treats too. Thanks very much for having us in your flat. It's super! Much much better option than a hotel!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sean and Lyn's GEM. The apartment was impeccably clean and contained all the amenities we needed. The location is ideal for access to the train and a couple of excellent cafes. We highly recommend their place in South Yarra for a nice neighborhood feel yet only a 5 minute train ride the downtown.

    November 2012
  • Well, first the host..
    Lyn was really kind with our phone conversations and immediately provided me with good information on arranging the collection of keys.
    Pity we never got to meet her though.
    Her husband Sean met us and gave us a "tour" of the place, gave us lots of information on F&B places and the surroundings, transportation options, and of course his own arsenal of recommendations for a good bite!
    It must have helped that we shared some common geographical backgrounds, but I'd say that Sean is a keen and friendly host who wants his guests to really enjoy their stay and of course, their wonderful apartment.
    The apartment was a good size, nice and cosy (and I'm not being patronising here).
    It had everything you needed, and nothing of what you don't.
    The balcony was a good extra for when you just want to get a few fresh whiffs of the cool Melbourne air.
    In close proximity, literally minutes away on foot, was Toorak Road and Chapel St.
    Do enjoy the walk around the place, South Yarra is becoming home to some really snazzy apartment developments.
    Not to mention the characterful shops which line both sides of the streets.
    And hey, remember to stop by and have breakfast or a coffee at Two Birds One Stone. Really passionate and warm folks running the place.
    It's just 2 minutes from the apartment.
    Sean was very liberal with how we wanted to enjoy his apartment, so just be respectful and enjoy this place however you like it!

    November 2012
  • Sean and Lyn were gracious hosts and we loved staying in their South Yarra apartment. It was fresh and clean and the little snacks left for us were a pleasant surprise. And the bed! We have never slept in a more comfortable bed whilst on holidays! Their apartment is in the perfect location, off the main street so quiet but a short walk to Chapel St and anything you could possibly need. We loved having breakfast at the One Bird Two Stones cafe across the road. This was our first Air BnB experience and we hope any others will be as great as this one. Thanks Sean and Lyn!

    November 2012
  • Simple & easy. Sean & Lyn met me at the apartment. It was spotless, comfortable, and centrally located. Exactly what I needed.

    October 2012
  • We had a wonderful stay at Sean&Lyn's place. They met us on arrival from the airport and the apartment was beautifully setup with all the basics and more (milk, coffee, tea, TimTams, cooking basics). We stayed for a month and loved the location - (email hidden)ly part of town, but also nestled by the Yarra River near the Botanical Gardens - great for a run or a walk. Commuting fro here to the CBD is a snap - 15-20 minutes door-to-door.

    We highly recommend this great spot for a short stay in Melbourne.

    October 2012
  • Sean and Lyn were great hosts and have a great apartment. It is convenient to all public transport, it's in a great location and it is a good price for what it is. I easily walked to the MCG for a footy game, it was a nice day and a nice walk along the Yarra.

    I'd recommend their place to anyone.

    September 2012
  • Sean & Lyn were amazing hosts, friendly and helpful. Their apartment was comfortable, clean and the location was very convenient. Would recommend this apartment for anyone who intends to visit Melbourne. Thank you so much Sean & Lyn for being so accommodating.

    August 2012
  • Sean & lyns apartment is awesome.
    I loved staying there. everything was great and I am keen to stay frequently.

    July 2012
  • Ideally located apartment, great space, very clean & well stocked with everything a guest could need. Especially appreciated the small touches, fresh milk in the fridge etc.
    Would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
    Thank you Sean & Lyn, you were great hosts. I will be back.
