First, I will start off with the good: the loft is very well located, just a 20-25 minute walk to some of the more central areas of Sydney. It also has a large terrace off the upper level, and there is a semi enclosed balcony off the main level. However, there were quite a few negatives to the apartment. When we arrived, the caretaker advised us that the owner had left behind his cat, and that we would need to feed the cat once a day. Nothing was mentioned to us previously about having to care for a cat (what if one of us were allergic to cats???) Secondly, the bedding was really sub par. The pillows were completely yellowed, old sheets, one mattress was hard as a wooden board, the 2nd mattress was slightly less firm but had a cigarette burn hole in it. I also spotted 2 cockroaches while we stayed. In general, I would say if you are a budget traveler OK with "slumming it," then this loft will do you just fine. However, if you are a bit more particular about where you stay, I would advise looking elsewhere. Also, there is no wifi, and for the price, I believe an owner ought to provide it for guests to use.
Stayed at Michael's place for 11 nights over the New Year period.
Positives: great location for cafes/bars/access to the city and public transport. Huge amount if space. Fantastic deck with city views. Big pool table. Interesting artwork. Great value for money for the location and time of year. Michael was flexible and his friends were great for check in / check out / questions. Kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans etc. Quiet street.
Negatives: place could be cleaner, a handful of cockroaches spotted during our stay (though I'm sure that's not uncommon in the warm wet weather). Could do with more glassware to drink from.
Overall: Was great for our group and I'd do it again
This apartment is located perfectly to visit Sydney. It is less than 10 min walk to the CBD. The apartment itself is very big and fully equiped (even with a pool billard table). Definately a good place to be in Sydney.
MIchael was really very friendly and generous. He loves cooking and inviting everyone without any problems at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!................ My daugther was visiting me during this time and he was so special and patient with her!!!!!!!!!! by teaching her not only a lot of skills about the thai cooking but also so many things about life and all those countries where she lives so unknown and farther for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so nice to meet him and learnt so many things. He was really special with all those who came to visit us and always had a nice word or something special to make them taste and also a wonderful attitude with everyone!!!!!
