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
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.
Just can't say enough about our recent stay with Lyn, at Kirribilli, in Sydney. The apartment was beautifully appointed and clean, and located very close to public transport. The views (from both front and back balconies) were breath-taking, and to top it all, Lyn could not have been a more gracious hostess - willing to provide information and talk with us, but equally as willing to allow us to 'do our own thing' in her apartment. Thank you, Lyn. We cannot wait to return. Beth and David x
What can I say? This is one of the best AirBnB places I have stayed at. The location of this apartment overlooking Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay/CBD is simply amazing and convenient to public transport, numerous eating options and all the major tourist sites near the inner city. Lynleigh was the perfect host; he was totally amenable to my early morning arrival and late departure, and did everything she could to make me feel at home. She respected my privacy when warranted, but at the same time was always only too happy to have a casual chat when we crossed paths. The guest sleeping quarters include a private balcony which had lovely views over Milsons Point and North Sydney and provide welcome sun and natural warmth on a fresh winter's morning. The neighbouring bathroom was immaculately clean and modern, and the shared living area was spacious and full of fantastic artwork/object d'art obtained during Lynleigh's extensive travels. The area around Kirribilli is rather hilly, but that is simply part of the experience of visiting Sydney. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future, and could not recommend this place more highly for a short or longer stay in the Harbour City.
Lyn's apartment is a great base for a visit to Sydney. Just around the corner from Kirribilli restaurants, shops and the train station with a spectacular view of Circular Quay and the Bridge. And only 10-15 min walk over the Bridge to the Rocks. Lyn provided great tips on local restaurants and cafes and got us straight to very good food and coffee - valuable when you've only a got a few days. Lyn was also a very welcoming host. All in all, we had a great stay in Kirribilli.
We were made very welcome by Lyn, right from the moment we booked and then prior to arrival with very detailed and easy to follow directions.
The apartment is of a very high standard, well appointed and very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of room to relax and enjoy one of the best views in Sydney. The location is excellent, with easy access to the trains and ferries and a good selection of restaurants within 10 min walk.
We found Lyn warm and friendly and she made sure we had everything we needed. We would not hesitate in staying here again.
We enjoyed our stay at Lynleigh's apartment. Kirribilli is a really nice neighbourhood; close to the city but still peaceful. Lynleigh was a friendly host and this our first Airbnb experience was a positive one.
