Description

The space

My guest room has just been updated with new carpet, paint and furniture. It sleeps 2 adults in a queen sized bed with luxury bedding.

The guest room is located in a modern two bedroom open plan apartment with timber floors, natural light and air conditioning. As host I live in the apartment and sleep in the second bedroom.
The restyled guest room boasts a queen sized bed with luxury bedding and towels, full length wardrobe, mirror, digital television fixed to the wall & unlimited wifi broadband. The guest room is private with natural light that opens to a balcony. Please note that there is some traffic and general street noise so if you are a light sleeper it maybe advisable to book elsewhere or bring earplugs!

At check in my guests receive a welcome pack that contains Aussie wine or beer, biscuits, sweets and bottled water.

Being one of Sydney's original Airbnb hosts I understand how important it is not to have your travel plans canceled at the last minute. Since becoming an Airbnb host four years ago I am proud that I have never canceled a guest booking. Stay with an established Airbnb host!

A clean and tidy bathroom with bath and shower, toiletries are supplied and limited use of washing machine, generally 1 load per stay but please do not arrive with your dirty washing direct from home (this has happened on several occasions!)

I also supply a breakfast of eggs, cereals, toast, tea and coffee which you help yourself to. There is a new espresso coffee machine with a large variety of pods.

There is a fully equipped gym including treadmills, step machine, machine weights and free weights – all included in the nightly charge of the room, perfect for business or pleasure trips to Sydney!

The building also features a stunning rooftop swimming pool and BBQ area - after a day sightseeing relax with a swim and cook dinner on the BBQ's.

While the apartment is air conditioned there is no separate unit in the guestroom however the cool air does flow into the guestroom with the door open.

The apartment is located in Inner City Redfern. Redfern is known for young professionals and trendy locals and offers funky cafes and pubs while being a 20 minute walk to the City Centre or Sydney University. Sydney's Best Neighbourhood Bar for 2016 is only 100 metres away from the apartment!

While only being one train stop away from the city Redfern is not in the heart of the tourist area. It's an Inner City suburb that is ideally situated to explore Sydney's exciting City of Villages away from the traditional tourist areas.

If you wish to stay in the traditional tourist areas may I suggest you look for accommodation in the Darling Harbour and Circular Quay areas.

An excellent mix of restaurants and cafes of Surry Hills and Newtown is also a short stroll from my apartment.

The apartment is a 5 minute walk to Redfern train station, just 1 stop from Central Station or walk into the heart of Sydney in 20 minutes. This train station services all lines including Bondi Junction, City Circle and North Shore Lines.

Sightseeing starts here!

I welcome new guests to Airbnb however kindly ask that you complete the profile section, listing your home country and city and a little information about yourself before sending a request to stay. Also in the 'verify my account' section please link a social media account and upload a passport or drivers license. As a host I do not see that information I simply know that Airbnb are holding that data.

As I am opening up my home to you it really is reassuring to know about my guests ahead of accepting the booking.

I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about your stay or my home.

Thanks for reading this far. Now allow me to share with you some previous guests reviews regarding 'location'.

- 'Apartment is located further from train station that I expected'.
As mentioned in the description the apartment is a simple 5 minute walk from Redfern train station.
- 'There is no off street parking'.
Correct. There is no off street parking, therefore I DO NOT list that parking is available.
- 'The road noise can be quite loud from time to time'.
Correct. Street noise can be quite noisy during peak times, this is clearly detailed within the description. If you are a light sleeper its advisable to bring ear plugs or book elsewhere.

If you are looking for a traditional 5 star hotel experience then please look elsewhere. If you are looking for a clean, tidy, friendly, and welcoming experience for your Sydney stay then this listing is ideal.

During your stay if there is something that I can do to ensure you leave a 5 star review on the Airbnb review system then please let me know. Your 5 star review is important to me as a host and helps me to continue to welcome others to my home.

Most of my previous guests mention my dog Oscar in their reviews. After 14 years together I sadly said goodbye to Oscar in January last year.

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 been an Airbnb host for 5 years. I love talking about Sydney and suggesting what to see and do while you enjoy the stay

Guest access

My guests will have their own brand new fridge freezer and use of the kitchen for light meals.

Please note the following for check in.

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. Or leave your luggage in the lockers at Central Station and grab lunch in Chinatown ahead of check in.

Interaction with guests

Having been an Airbnb host for 5 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.

Getting around

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 20 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.

Spencer was a super great host ! Having people in his house is a beautiful way for him (and for us!) To discover more about others and share experiences. Beautiful flat with everything you need, even a pool and a gym to relax after long days! Not far from the train station and you can be in the Center very quickly. Definitly recommend

Spencer made us feel like we were staying with family. He was incredibly friendly and helpful. I would recommend Spencer's Airbnb to anyone who wants the comforts of home while visiting Sydney. Thank you for you hospitality, Spencer!

We really enjoyed our stay at Spencers' flat. He is the perfect host. Redfern is very central and the train station is within a 5 minutes walk.

Having never really used Airbnb before I was slightly nervous about booking one for such a long period of time. However, from the first message I sent Spencer I was instantly at ease, he was so upfront about everything, really quick to reply and was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly! Upon arrival things just got better. Spencer was an attentive host who always went above and beyond what I could have ever expected from a host! He is so easy to get on with and easy going that I started to feel more like a roommate than a guest. The accommodation itself is beautiful as well, exactly as I expected it to be from the pictures, the pool is amazing and so refreshing after a long day sight seeing and most of the time I was one of the only ones there. The gym was really well equipped as well (although I won't pretend to have spent a lot of time there!). The room is perfect with lots of storage space, a direct door to the balcony and is slightly off the main room so you have some private space if you'd like. My only warning would be that Spencer is so wonderful and welcoming that you will probably never want to leave! Massive thank you again to Spencer for making my first time in Australia the best time of my life!!!

Professional guy that loves to travel! Enjoy discussing travel stories. I have lived in Sydney for 15 years and love the city.

Always keen to chat about the sort of experiences you would like while staying in Sydney and help to plan Itineraries. Whether it be a visit to Circular Quay or the Museum of Contemporary Art or perhaps a visit to the beaches of the Central Coast or down to Kiama to see the blow hole.

Went to school on the Gold Coast in Queensland and have family there, so may be able to help with forward planning your Australian trip.

Have also lived in regional centers in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland - happy to advise holiday spots.
