After doing the touristy thing and staying in a city hotel it was great to come out into the suburbs and live like the locals. This apartment suited our needs, spacious, bright with everything we needed with a homely feel. The kitchen is fully equipped for meals in.
Local transport is easy, with the city/bondi bus seconds away. The ferry journey from circular key to darling point was fab, especially at sunset and took 5 mins to get home.
Melissa was very friendly and helpful and her list of local restaurants much appreciated. I would recommend a stay here, if you want to be out of the hustle bustle of the city and also want to make the most of Sydney's bays and surrounding areas this is ideal.
Melissa was a great host - meeting me for check-in early before work after a 15 hour flight from LA. As the pics show, great 1 bedder in a really nice neighbourhood. Corner store and coffee nearby, ferry just a couple of hundred metre's away for one of the best commutes you will ever have in the world. A+
Melissa is the perfect hostess. The apartment is beautiful with big windows allowing views of the lush exterior. It was our first airbnb experience, so it was nice to have such a well appointed, clean and comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed the short walks to Paddington and Double Bay and the short bus trip into the city most days. The check in/check out time was very flexible which was great. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and hopefully we can stay here next time we are in Sydney. Thanks again Melissa.
Thanks for the lovely review Jenni and for the feedback on the directions to the corner store - I have updated our local guide accordingly.
We had a wonderful three night stay at Melissa & Josh's apartment. It was very comfortable and extremely charming and well appointed. The location was excellent - we could walk to Double Bay for dinner & drinks, also an easy walk to Paddington and short bus trip into the city. The Village Store also serves great coffee just a minute up the road! We are looking forward to our next stay at Darling Point. Thanks so much!
Mellissa was an amazing host and made my stay so easy and enjoyable. Her apartment is so relaxing and the couch is one of the most comfortable couches I've ever got to chill out and watch movies on. The only problem with Melissa's pad was that I never wanted to leave and go explore!!!
We had a wonderful time at this really charming place. Melissa was a perfect host. Everything was easy going. The apartment is located in a fantastic area, great for exploring Sydney. We are very happy that we found this place for our stay. Thanks a lot!
This place was seriously great value. Everything about it is quality, and Melissa and Josh are generous hosts. My stay here was a pure joy. Thanks!
This is the most delightful apartment - I wish that I could have stayed much longer. It is beautifully fitted out with lots of thoughtful touches. Melissa was very helpful throughout and met me at check in. She pointed me to the little park at the end of the road, which was a wonderfully peaceful place to picnic (or just sit). If I could I'd give this stay 6 stars!
I had a really relaxing stay at this beautiful apartment. Just as short walk down the street and you are at a gorgeous park right on the edge of the harbor. The interior of the apartment has an elegant slightly old world charm to it. It is bright and spacious. Access to the apartment couldn't have been more easily organised which was much appreciated at the end of a long day. The neighborhood has a relaxed elegance to it and Double Day is just a short walk away. Thanks so much Melissa and Greg for my stay at your very beautiful apartment! Much appreciated x
Our stay at Melissa and Josh's apartment was perfect. We were lucky that it is situated 5 mins from out brother and his family, but it is also a great area to be based while in Sydney. The apartment itself is light and fully equipped with all that is required for a comfortable stay. It is secure and easy to access from Darling Point road, which in itself is lovely with large established trees, providing shade from the heat. We used the ferry service from Double Bay which is only a 10 minute walk away to end up on the stunning harbour and circular quay or other beachside villages. We could pick up supplies from the corner store so nearby, as well as enjoy the Thursday double Bay market. The apartment is exceptionally clean and decorated beautifully. Melissa was extremely helpful on arrival and just a really lovely person. I totally recommend this apartment as a great place to stay while in Sydney!
Melissa is a friendly, caring and extremely considerate people. Mel and I met at work and have since enjoyed many a chat over lunchtime sushi. Mel is meticulous in keeping her apartment clean and fresh and goes to great lengths to ensure anyone staying feels welcome and comfortable. She is a natural host and is always out and about enjoying the city with friends and family. Both Mel and Josh are well traveled and these experiences have given them a first hand appreciation of the importance of the little things which can make a difference to ensuring someone feels at home when staying in new city. I would have no hesitation recommending Mel and Josh's beautiful apartment for any traveler looking to enjoy our great city.
