Interaction with Guests
I love guests to make themselves at home and to chat with themthroughout their stay without being intrusive. I send out an information manual with details on the apartment and the area and have more information on visiting Sydney in the room.
I work three days a week so guests have private use of common areas a lot of the time.
Kirribilli is known as a village in the centre of Sydney. It is so close to the city (one stop by ferry or train) but is very safe and its many cafes and small shops make it fell as if it is miles away from all the histle and busle of the CBD.
Kirribilli is fantastic for public transport. Milsons Point train station is less than 10 mins away from the apartment and from there it is one stop to the business end of the city and two stops (6 mins) from the main shopping area. The ferry is also around 10 mins away and takes 6 mins to get to Circular Quai and 10 mins to Darling Harbour.
Other Things to Note
While I don't offer to cook breakfast, I do have cereal and toast available for guests to help themselves. Small containers of UHT milk are provided as a starter.
There is a small bin for rubbish under the sink but recyclables (paper, bottles and cans) go into larger bins in the rubbish room next to the lift on the same level. If you leave these out on the bench, I am happy to put them in the bin.
Non smoking please
Lyn had everything ready for us - guides, maps, a welcome manual, phone numbers - before we arrived. She is also incredibly nice, and knowledgeable of the surrounding area, which is great for a first-time traveler to Australia like myself. The room itself was amazing and incredibly comfortable (lots of space for two people). There's an option to have two beds as well, so no need to share! The view from both the room and front of the apartment are fantastic.
Location is very accessible as well. The trains and ferries pretty much travel everywhere a tourist will need to go. Food options nearby are quite tasty as well, ranging from pizza, Thai, fish and chips, to Japanese. It takes about less than 10 minutes to get to the Opera House.
I would highly recommend this place, and would love to come and stay again!!
We spent 5 days at Lyn's place. We had a wonderful time. Lyn is a great host and made us welcome. The view over the harbour is just stunning. The facilities provided were excellent. Lovely bedroom and bathroom. Ferry and train transport nearby. We ate locally and purchased food and wine from the local shops. Highly recommended place to stay.
This airbnb is by far the best in Sydney. From the balcony you have a fantastic view over Harbourbridge. And the price is quite reasonable. Mrs. Lyn Evens is good host. When I ever come back in Sydney, I certainly will stay at Lyns again. Magnificant.
Lyn was a great host and the apartment was stunning with amazing views over Sydney Harbour. She made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is in a great area within easy reach of all major attractions. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend
We had a great time in lyns apartment. Location is great and the view is spectacular, specially at night with all the lights from the city. Restaurants nearby. Very safe area.
She was a great host, let you free.
Our first time to use AirBnB and we were blessed. Lynleigh spoilt us rotten. The apartment is beautifully set out for guests. Our bedroom very comfortable and warm. The views spectacular. Having never travelled in Sydney before Lynleigh helped us with advise on the best ways to get around. Lynleigh even lent us the use of a warm coat as we were in Sydney during a cold snap. The apartment is in a fantastic position. We caught the ferries and train everywhere as they were right on our door step. Many beautiful restaurants and cafes at Milsons Point as well. Lynleigh supplies a manual for guests that helps immensely with how to get to apartment etc. My son and I had the most amazing five day stay that couldnt be compared to being stuck in a colourless nameless standard hotel room. We would sincerely love to be able to return one day and stay with Lynleigh again. Five Star no doubt.
Lyn is a great host. Her apartment is beautiful and the views are stunning. Location could not be better, close to subway and to the City Center! In Kiribilli there are many places to eat that open until late.
The room was really nice, REALLY confortable bed and enough room for the clothes in the closet. The bathroom was also great. Everything very clean.
We definetely recommend this place and when we come back to Sydney, Lyn, accept us again as your guests xD!
In brief, we felt at home from the very beginning, thank you Lyn.
