Cheaper than a hostel!
Very convenient location. 3 minutes to walk to the bus stop that travels direct to the city, CBD. 5 min walk to Maroubra Junction's Pacific Square which has a supermarket, and restaurants and coffee shops. 15 minute walk to Maroubra beach. The place has carpet in the bedroom and lounge room. Unit has internal laundry.

Facing East. From the bedroom you get a distant view of Maroubra beach. You can see the sunrise!
The room gets the beach breeze so is quite cool. If it's not cool enough, there is also a fan.
The measurements of the room is 2.7m x 3.4 m. Enough space to stretch your legs and arms!
The room has a single bed and wardrobe. Share bathroom and kitchen.

There is a TV in the bedroom, but you can only play DVDs on it.

Sheena is really friendly and helpful :) I chat with her almost every night and she always gives me great advice on places to visit and eat. The apartment is very convenient which is nearby the shops and buses to beaches, the City and airport! The place looks exactly like what the photos show.
Diesel the cat is very cute and welcoming~ I have no problem with him at all despite my nose allergy. He even massages me! It was an AWESOME stay :)
She was very friendly and very welcoming. Her place was exactly as described. Her kitchen was free for me to use. Her place is very near the markets and only 20 mins from Maroubra beach on foot. One can get the bus for the city centre and the entertainment quarter from her place. Its very easy to get to her place from the airport.
All in all I found her place clean and homely.
I would definitely recommend her place to anyone who wants to come to Sydney.
Sheena was a very welcoming host, always available to give advices about Sydney. Her apartment is a little bit far from downtown but it is well situated for the airport and the beaches. Highly recommended !
Sheena is a great host! The communication was very good, so I knew where to go and when. She was really helpful, making sure I had everything I needed. We had nice conversations about my travels, but she also gave me plenty of space to do my own thing. Her place is *very* convenient to the airport, as well!
Sheena is a fantastic host! She is very helpful and welcoming. The room is very comfortable and has lots of space for your stuff. The location is perfect, close to transport and stores, airport, beaches and the city. Diesel the cat is just the cutest thing ever and gives you lots of love and cuddles. Great place to stay!
Sheena makes a very good host. To accomodate for my arrival schedule she chose to work around her work schedule and was there when I arrived. The description on the listing is accurate.
Nice stay, convenient to Maroubra Jtn shops and transport. Host was welcoming and pleasant.
About the Host, Sheena
Currently working as an admin officer in Sydney, Australia.
I like the outdoors, and boxing, and bushwalking if I haven't injured a ligament or pulled a muscle.
My next holiday plan is to go to Mt Kilimanjaro ….
I love to travel and have travelled to the US, London, Spain, Morocco and some parts of Asia, Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Singapore and Malaysia.
I love delicious food, good coffee, friendly cats and dogs, and taking photos (not that good, but it doesn't stop me).
I consider myself respectful of other people's places.
