I had a wonderful time at Helen and Marks. The small room has everything you need and it is very comfortable to have your own bathroom at the same level. The kitchen and laundry has also a good furnishing and you can dry your clothes in the beautiful garden. Helen and Mark gave me a lot of space and privacy and if I had a question they took their time to help me. In brief I had a very good time at their house, it felt like home and I can recommend to stay at Helen and Marks home.
Many Thanks for such a lovely review Tine. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us. It was great to share our space with someone who was so exceptionally polite & respectful. We would warmly welcome you back to stay with us anytime & highly recommend you to future hosts.
All the very best & safe travels : )
Very accurate listing. Close to Bronte beach, cafes, shopping and lots more. So great to walk up the road and have a pick of lovely places to eat and so close to Bondi Junction also.
Helen and Mark have been very welcoming and accommodating. Also got fresh towels every few days- lush!
I have had to work a little while I am here and the desk in the room facing the garden has been perfect!
Would definitely stay again.
The location was excellent, particularly if you don't have a car. You can walk to the beach in 20 mins (and get the bus back if you want - it's quite a steep hill!) or walk to Bondi a Junction in 15 mins - full of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and a main transport hub into the city. And the nearby shops are just round the corner and are fine for your day-to-day needs.
The house was good. It had everything I needed and it was great having sole use of the family bathroom. My bedroom was clean and functional - not huge, but with loads of cupboard space and a useful desk looking out over the garden it had everything I needed.
Helen and Mark made me very welcome. They were friendly without being overpowering, always available to answer any questions I had.
I would certainly recommend this house if you are looking for a quiet stay in a great location.
Staying with Mark and Helen was our first Airbnb experience and we were so pleased. We were visiting our daughter who lived nearby so it was perfect for us. The house is really well positioned not too far from Bondi Junction and a beach which can both be walked to + buses nearby.
Both Mark and Helen were very friendly and welcoming, providing a clean double bedroom and use of our own bathroom which was nice. Mark explained that there was space in the fridge/cupboard for our food and we could use the kitchen which would be very useful for some guests, however we were out most of the time visiting family so did not use this opportunity.
We only stayed 3 days and did not get a chance to sit in the garden but hope to return again.
Helen and Mark were very friendly and accommodating. I was able to cook in the kitchen and I had my own bathroom.
The location is good too. It’s about 12 minutes walk to Bondi Junction train station, which has lots of restaurants and grocery stores around it.
My friend and I stayed with Helen and Mark for a week in November 2014. They are both lovely people, the house is nice and clean, and the location is great. I would definitely stay here again and I truly recommend them.
Accoglienza molto (website hidden) siamo facilmente accordati sull'orario del check in. Casa acogliente e molto pulita, corrispondente alle mie aspettative. Il quartiere elegante e sicuro. Trasporto pubblico abbastanza comodo e vicino.
Mark e Helen mi hanno dato consigli pratici su come muovermi e cosa visitare a Sydney e sono stati una bella compagnia la sera quando rientravamo tutti a casa.
