Our first airbnb experience couldn't have been better! Glen, Lara's husband, is a perfect host, giving us a very warm welcome in Sydney. We enjoyed very much staying in this flat in Surry Hills, taking benefit of this lively quarter, its hundreds of cafés and its proximity to CBD. We felt absolutly comfortable in the guestroom with private bathroom and we enjoyed staying in the living room having a chat with Glen. He answered each of our thousend questions, gave us hints and tipps where to go in Syndney and even explained us the way cricket works... maybe we can't remember all details right now ;-)
We would definitively like to stay with Lara and Glen again, if we could...
Thanks very much again.
Had such a great stay with Glen!! Unfortunately we did not get to meet the very lovely sounding Lara as she was away, however we did very much enjoy her spot-on recommendations provided about all the surrounding pubs, bars and eating establishments! Glen was super friendly and welcoming - was like having a good mate around to chew the fat with in our down times. Although he was also very mindful of our personal space. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were all in an immaculate condition - comfy and clean. Lovely terrace as well. Was a very pleasant stay indeed!
Everything was perfect, we could use everything we needed. If we had any questions they were always happy to help. If possible we would stay again with Lara and Glen anytime.
Great, enjoyed it reallymuch and wanted to stay longer.
Lara and Glen are the most fabulous host's. I felt sincerely welcome in their home, both are incredibly thoughtful, Lara kindly gave me a lift early in the morning to the train station when I departed on the next leg of my journey. As for the location WOW in walking distance excellant cafe's, restaurants and a bakery on the corner! I even walked to Sydney CBD, if you're not up to that there's ample public transport. I definitely recommend as a great place to stay and excellant host's. Thankyou Lara & Glen p.s I loved the water pressure in the shower
I stayed a week at this home, in a gated community, and it was great on every level. The location is excellent for just hanging around the neighborhood or Sydney Harbor is about a 30 minute walk.. Lara and her husband could not have been nicer and I would stay with them again. You get your own bedroom and bath and an outdoor sitting area. The offer breakfast.. Cap Sparling
Lara and Glen were exellent hosts. They helped me where ever they could and made me feel like home. I really enjoyed my stay at their place and would be happy to stay there again.
Lara's flat is in an ideal location in Sydney: in trendy Surry Hills, walking distance from the best restaurants, bakeries and cafes as well as very close to Central station. We loved Surry Hill so much, we ended up spending most of our time in the area.
We stayed in the room at Lara's flat for 6 days, the room is very comfortable and clean, the bathroom has got a great shower with towels, shampoo etc. Lara also provided beach towels (Bondi beach is 40 mins away by bus).
Lara and Glen were very friendly and nice and I would recommend staying in this house if you visit Sydney.
Lara is a great host and made it a most welcomed stay. She is a warm and very helful host and it was great to chat with her. The place is lovely with excellent central location, close to close to nice shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend the place!
Nice place, hosts were great. Nice friendly couple who were more than happy to help wherever possible. Recommend for couples.
