You will also be sharing the apartment with Oscar, a friendly and quiet Australian kelpie dog and a large tropical aquarium.
Please note that Oscar loves to be with my guests. When I leave for work in the morning Oscar will tap at the bedroom door. He will sleep on the floor by the side of the bed until my guests get up. If this situation is not to your liking then I kindly ask that you book elsewhere!
Feel free to drop me a line and chat about your visit to Sydney before you book.
I have lived in Sydney for 20 years and have hosted several home stay students. I love talking about Sydney and suggesting what to see and do while you enjoy the stay!
My guests will have their own brand new fridge freezer and use of the kitchen for light meals.
My work situation has recently changed therefore I am able to offer the following for check in times.
Monday to Friday check in anytime after 2.15pm - simply advise and I will ensure I am home to welcome you.
Weekends are mostly flexible.
I hope the above times fit with your plans. There are plenty of coffee shops nearby to relax at ahead of check in.
Interaction with Guests
Having been an Airbnb host for over two years I understand the importance of guest interaction. While I am happy to chat and exchange stories and travel tips, I am equally happy to offer peace and quiet.
Oscar, my dog, also is happy to sit back and observe - he really doesn't demand much attention.
Redfern station is located 5 minutes walk from the apartment. From Redfern it is 1 stop to Central Station. All major areas of Sydney can be accessed from Redfern. Or simply walk! The City is only 25 minutes walk.
Other Things to Note
While I am happy to accept new guests to Airbnb with no previous reviews I would kindly ask that you verify a few details ahead of sending a booking request.
If I am opening up my home to you then please have uploaded a recent photograph and verified email or verified other third party web sites from the 'edit profile page' on your Airbnb dashboard.
As I host I do not see the details of your passport etc (it is held by Airbnb) it allows me to ensure the person placing the booking will be the person staying.
Thanks for your understanding.
I would ask that you treat this home as you would your own, respect the bedroom and belongings.
This is not hostel or backpacker's accommodation. You will be sharing a beautiful home so please keep the room reasonably tidy and ensure the contents of the room are not damaged due to carelessness.
If you are a backpacker then this accommodation is not for you!
As I have a dog I would ask that you are pet friendly. I don't expect you to play with the Oscar but please be respectful of him. Patting him is a bonus!
I don't mind what time you come home but please be as quiet as possible so as not to wake me!
Open minded but please no outside visitors.
Smoking is permitted on the balcony.
I generally do not accept check in's later than 8.30pm. If you know you will be arriving later than this time please advise prior to booking.
It is important for me to keep a great relationship with my neighbours and other owners within the apartment building. I kindly ask for you to adhere to the following;
Please be mindful of neighbours at all times and speak quietly when in the common areas late at night.
There is a strict 'no glass' policy around the swimming pool area, please adhere to this rule and all other rules clearly defined in the outdoor entertainment area.
When entering and exiting the building be mindful that you are a guest of the building and be courteous and friendly to those you meet.
From Dec 27, 2015 - Jan 02, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
