Guest Access

Guests have private bedroom, bathroom and balcony and full use of all common areas. Host has private bedroom and ensuite.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • What a truely amazing place! It is well named as spectacular views but even the photos do not do it justice. More importantly the host lyn is very helpful and friendly and provides a very helpful booklet in advance with everything you need to know about the area. Kirribilli itself has everything you need in the way of eateries and shops and access to all forms of transport to get you to places of interest. I stayed 3 nights and was able to see quite a lot of sydney by ferry. Train and foot and then return to view it all from the balcony! Highly recommend a stay here. Thank you lyn for making me so welcome. Meg

    Thanks Meg, I really enjoyed having you. Do come again some time.

  • Absolutely fantastic apartment and beautiful views! Lyn is the perfect host. The room is lovely and has a great view and a private balcony. The bathroom is spacious and everything was spotless.
    Kirribilli is a great area and there's a number of cafes and places to eat less than a 5 minute walk away. I walked over the bridge to Circular Quay and back most days and always had my breath taken away by the views. I can't reccommend this place enough - if I go back to Sydney again (and I hope to) I would stay here again. Thankyou for a great place to explore Sydney from!

    All the best and see you again some time.

  • This apartment is very special- the photos don't really prepare you for how close and spectacular the view of the bridge is- amazing! Lynleigh was away the first few days of our stay but had left comprehensive instructions and recommendations which were invaluable and was still available to answer queries by email.
    The apartment is light and airy, spacious and very comfortable. Circular quay is exactly opposite - we walked there over the bridge on several occasions and the view from the front balcony is ever changing with boats coming and going. It is a short walk to catch the ferry to circular quay if you don't want to walk. All in all this is amazing value for money, central but with a village type feeling with lovely cafés and restaurants in easy walking distance. It is to be highly recommended. We live on the opposite side of the world but still hope to go back ASAP!! Sally and David

    Sally & David, I look forward to having you again some day

  • Lynleigh's apartment has views to die for - right across the harbour!! yet you can access trains and ferries within a few minutes - and in the evenings you can either stay in town and even walk across the bridge or eat in the lovely village atmosphere of KIRRIBILLI. the apartment is lovely, own bathroom and access to laundry for those of us who have just come from a camping. trip. and Lynleigh is helpful but not obtrusive so you feel at home. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely lovely to have you. See you again some time.

  • Lynleigh was a fantastic host for my parents-in-law. She was so helpful and welcoming. She also made my husband, myself and our 11 month old welcome in her home, allowing us to drop by to visit and use the bathroom, shower & kitchen facilities. She gave our daughter a little stuffed toy for a present which she loved. We were blown away by her friendliness and helpfulness. Thanks Lynleigh!

  • Wow ... What a wonderful apartment with the most amazing views. Lyn is a super host and makes you feel very welcome. She is friendly, accommodating and very easy to talk too.
    The bedroom is spacious with your own luxury bathroom. On my last night I was able to experience some fireworks from the main balcony overlooking the harbour. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be back!!!

  • How fortunate we were to choose Lyn for our first Airbnb experience and our first day in Australia. Her apartment is in a wonderful situation with easy access across the water to the centre of Sydney. Lyn was very accommodating in allowing us to settle in off an early flight from UK and throughout the 5 day stay she was helpful and a perfect host.

    Thanks - you were great guests

  • This is a very nice place to stay. I really love the view and the decoration. It's very convenient to and from Sydney CBD. Of course Lyn is very helpful to my dad and I. The memories there will always be on my mind.

  • We spent a fabulous 5 days in Sydney with Lynn in her beautiful apartment in Kirribilli. This was our first Airbnb experience and Lynn was so kind, gracious and welcoming! We especially enjoyed watching the Australian Open together...cheering for our respective countries. The comprehensive manual Lynn prepared was very helpful to us as we explored the sights, sounds and tastes of this beautiful port city and we would highly recommend this property to our friends in the future. It is a 10/10.
