I had a really great experience staying with Matt and Pip, I would highly recommend them as hosts. The cabin is very comfortable and clean with everything you need in a home away from home. The location is also great with just a short walk to the beach and Avalon shops. I really enjoyed my stay the atmosphere relaxed and everything was super easy.
Thanks very much Matt and Pip
Pip and Matt were the most accommodating hosts that we've had the pleasure of meeting through AirBnb. We had originally booked a different cottage in Avalon and after learning the WiFi was not working, we were forced to find other accommodations. Not only was Pip and Matt's WiFi strong but it ended up being a blessing in disguise. Their cottage was so beautiful and warm. A nice little kitchenette along with warm showers, a quaint little front porch and a big book of everything to do in town. The bed was comfortable, a/c and heat available and a short walk to the beach and town made this one of the best places I've ever booked. Let alone on very short notice to them! We even had a homemade muffin delivery on our last night! The perfect breakfast to start our long trek back to Canada! I can't thank them enough for all they did!
We had a very pleasant stay during those five days in Avalon. Pip and Matt are very welcoming and you feel like home once you've pushed the door of your cabin. All is very well arranged and confortable, it's obvious that they have think about all the little details like if it was for their own purpose. We really appreciate that they had written a little note according to what we wanted to do during this short trip. Even if it seems to be a short drive from Sydney, Avalon worth it, the quietness of the place and the kindness of people is priceless. We hope to come back one day.
We had a wonderful stay at Pip and Matt's cabin for 5 nights. The cabin was spotlessly clean and perfect for a couple. It's in a great location close to town. The best bakery is at the end of the street. A great place to base yourself to enjoy Sydney's beautiful northern beaches. Pip and Matt were the perfect hosts and made us feel really welcome and we were sad to leave.
Pip & Matt were excellent hosts. The listing was exactly as described and we loved the location that runs off one of the main streets of Avalon but is far enough away to have total peace & quiet. This place has everything you need to be self sufficient including a TV/DVD, kettle, hot plate, cutlery etc & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
We had a very enjoyable stay. Pip was very welcoming and showed us around when we arrived. The cabin was cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. The town and beach were close by. The only thing that I wished we could have had was nicer weather!
Pip was very welcoming and the cabin was comfortable and cosy. It had everything I needed and was private and quiet. It is also an easy walk to Avalon shops and beach.
