Abi is a very attentive host who has a comfortable and welcoming home. Her house is close to the city centre and she provides a relaxed and impressive environment. After an exhausting day sight seeing Abi's home is just right for sitting around chatting and enjoying a quiet beverage with other guests.
I stayed a few days at Abi's place upon arriving in Sydney! Her place was very welcoming, clean and she has a great style. Her place is in a wonderful location great for exploring and discovering many charming neighbourhoods as well as so close to central station and many buses. I would definitely recommend staying at Abi's. I unfortunately didn't get the chance to meet Abi personally as she was out of the country when I arrived however she was soo helpful and easy to communicate regardless. I had the pleasure of meeting her mother and amazing daughter India, who were also very helpful and so nice to talk to. Her place really is a gem.
Abi's place was a fantastic place to stay. Her daughter, India, welcomed me and made me feel at home. The house itself is spacious and charming, and the location is the best. It's easily accessible to downtown by public transportation, and even close enough to have a nice long stroll. It's conveniently located with plenty of shops, cafes, and great restaurants around and not far from the airport as well. I didn't spend a lot of time in Sydney, but the next time I visit Sydney, I will most definitely stay with Abi. My only "complaint" or regret is that I didn't get to meet Abi in person as she was traveling :(. I highly recommend her place!
Lovely location, lovely home, lovely terrace, lovely room, lovely Abi, lovely India, lovely cats (Many & Diego) and the whole within a French touch atmosphere. Definitely a place to visit and to be. Thanks for everything.
This was my first AirBnB experience so I wasn't sure what to expect. Before I had even arrived Abi had contacted me to ensure I knew how to get there. It was very easy to get to from the airport. As soon as I arrived I felt at home; Abi is a well-educated and extremely interesting host - if she's around be sure to chat with her! She had a sincere interest in my travels and helped me on several occasions plan out my day trips.
Her house is fabulous. High ceilings throughout, nice modern furniture and gives that comfortable at-home feel. The room I had stayed in is very simple, not to big, but a massive ceiling makes it feel really cool. The bed is simple and just what I needed. The room is filled with books and maps, you're never short of resources.
During my stay I was given as much privacy as needed. Abi has a respectful sense of when to ask about your trip and when to just leave you be. Abi, her daughter and her two handsome adorable cats were just the best to stay with.
My only regret is not staying longer. If your dates at Abi's haven't been booked yet, take them! You'd be crazy not to.
Thank you, Abi! I hope our paths cross again one day soon!
Abi is wonderful and so is her home. When I got there the door was open and the ambiance said come right in!
The place was just like the pictures. Abi was also incredibly communicative and incredibly flexible. Basically dealing with her was entirely stress free, and that was just before I got there!
After I got there I realized text based communication didn't do her justice, she's fascinating and impressively hospitable. Beside speaking 3 languages fluently (maybe more?) and being exceptionally well travelled, she's a wonderful conversationalist. On a night that ended early I thought I would go to bed early but instead wound up in an awesome conversation about international politics for 2 hours.
Also her other room was rented by two interesting young Belgian guys. Basically that made the home feel like a cosmopolitan hostile of sorts.
And while the picture of the room is accurate it doesn't show off that those curtains actually do a great job of darkening what is otherwise a very bright room, which is perfect for sleeping in especially with the early sunshine of Australian summers.
The next time I need a room in Sydney, I won't hesitate to stay again.
The experience was as advertised. Beautiful, comfortable home and excellent host, both discreet and attentive. The location in Redfern was quietly residential, yet close to amenities as: the Surry Hills Shopping Village, local transportation, and the cafes, bars and restaurants along trendy Crown Street, all within five minutes walking distance. I chose the host for her clearly progressive views and compatible interests with my own. But I cannot imagine anyone who would not feel comfortable and respected in her home. It made my first visit to Sydney a pleasant one.
Great location, just near Crown St in Surrey Hills.
Close to the airport too!
Host was excellent, arrival time was flexible, as was check out!
Very much recommended.
I stayed with Abi and her daughter India for a weekend recently. We were all a bit like ships in the night passing each other so I didn't spend a lot of time with them but they were both very warm and welcoming hosts.
Abi has made a lovely home and the space feels cosy and relaxed. The house is in the perfect spot for enjoying the delights of inner city Sydney.
I'd definitely recommend Abi as a fantastic host.
Cozy, clean and nice place near Sydney CBD. Abi made me feel like home. I would like to spend more days on Abi's house if I have chance to visit Sydney again!
