I was in Sydney last month for a conference that was held in the city. I found Sam's place very convenient - a short walk to the bus stop that took me straight into the city. Super comfortable king bed and bright room. Although the bathroom was a bit small, the benefits of having a private bathroom outweighed the size issue. All in all a comfortable stay for the 4 days I was there.
Staying at Sam's gorgeous house was just perfect . It is such a lovely space , I felt right at home and very relaxed while staying there . This is because firstly Sam is such a warm lovely person and also as she has taken the time to add beautiful personal touches to her home. I am thrilled I found her /her home as I'll certainly be back :)
Great Apartment in a perfect surrounding!i had a nice time in SAMs house.would totally recommend it!
Samantha was great at being in touch in the lead up to my visit, providing speedy responses to any questions I had.
The room was a good size and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was good to have my own bathroom. The house is a good size and in a fabulous location. Samantha was away during my stay but her friend who was housesitting was really lovely.
About the Host, Samantha
My ideal way to travel is like a local- using great local tips to immerse myself in the best of a city and explore.
Thats why I like the idea of airbnb- it brings a perfect mix of local knowledge and community to travelling.
