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
This is a great place to stay in the Sydney area. The view is almost unbelievably good. The apartment is very clean. Our room, though smallish, was comfortable with good storage/closet space.
We used both balconies at different times for breakfasts or heating leftovers from a local restaurant. This is a very nice, quiet neighborhood located only a ferry ride (or bus or train or car or walk) across the harbor from Circular Quay. Kirribilli restaurants and markets are only a few blocks away. (Use the street in back to get to them -- less difficult uphill walking on your return.)
The apartment is not air conditioned, which we knew ahead of time, but there was usually a good, cooling breeze flowing through, and our hostess provided fans which, when needed, made us quite comfortable.
Lynleigh was a great hostess -- interesting to talk to and friendly but not at all intrusive. She provided a very useful manual as well as personally contacting us in the week or so prior to our arrival. Thanks to her advice, we chose the perfect public transportation option (My-Multi 3) for our visit. Lyn was very helpful with other aspects of our visit as well. We couldn't be happier with our stay.
Lynleigh generously shares her home with her guests and it was very easy to feel at home there. She provides good advice and recommendations, much of which is available in the house manual which she sends in advance, so finding the way from the station was very easy. Lynleigh was very flexible about our arrival and departure and let us leave our luggage there on the last day when we had a late flight. The apartment is every bit as special as it appears in the listing and we couldn't get enough of the views of the harbour from both balconies. We were extremely pleased to have chosen Lynleigh's apartment and hope to return for more than just a Sydney stopover. We can recommend it wholeheartedly.
Lyn is a perfect host and made our stay very comfortable with her easily manner. The whole apartment is very clean and comfy, the view is absolutely spectacular and the location could not be better! It is so easy to get into Sydney's CBD or to Darling Harbour! We appreciated having our own bathroom... Thanks again for letting us share this wonderful place with you. We will keep the view in our minds!
Australia Day Weekend
We had wonderful relaxing time in Sydney. Thank you Lynleigh for sharing your spectacular apartment: views to the Bridge and Circular Quay to die for, close to the train and ferries and the fantastic little village, with lots of eating options.
It was so easy to book and the communication and information you provided were excellent.
This was our first experience of Airbnb and we look forward to many more.

Lyn's apartment was as described and shown but the views were even more impressive.
Lyn made everything easy for us to to access her home even though we arrived prior to her return from work.
We had a lovely 4 night stay with lyn at her beautiful apartment. The views really are "spectacular". We had everything we needed in the apartment and the bed was very cosy. Thank you for sharing your home with us lyn. We feel very lucky to have found you on airbnb.
Lyn managed to be a fantastic host despite not being there in person - instructions on getting there, getting keys, a great manual on how everything in the apartment works, wifi, local information including transport info, restaurant reviews, directions... even little notes left to help us find everything! The apartment itself is beautiful, really spacious and stylish, spotlessly clean, great facilities, big guest bedroom and bathroom and AMAZING views with terraces to enjoy them from. Really stunning, even better than the photos. The location was good we knew it would be a trip across the bridge to get to the city but walking over the bridge is an experience in itself, plus the ferry and trains are only five minutes away. Lyn left us Opal cards to top up and use (like Oyster cards). All in all very high standard accommodation and great value for money. We loved it!
