What a lovely home! It is a nice experience on the road to stay somewhere so comfortable and homely. As soon as you walk through the door you feel at home, and are greated by Martin's loving cat Emily. I've felt very comfortable here, and would definitely love to stay here again when I return.
Despite Martin being a little hard to get a hold of at times,he was helpful and a friendly host. The bed was very uncomfortable which he exchanged for me which was a vast improvement. Overall it is a spacious apt however it really needs a major commercial clean. I found the place to be really dirty,dusty and poorly maintained.There is a strong smell of cat pee throughout the apt.I'm not sure where the cleaning fee charged is going.The bathroom was mouldy and damp. The quality of the sheets and towels were also well below standard. I had to buy some sheets of my own to be comfortable.
It should be noted that the host lives on the floor above and there is some noise assocaited with that.
It was a quiet neighbourhood with lovely neighbours in a great area, but you definitely need a car.
If the place was properly cleaned,and with better linen, I would rate it more highly.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Martin is a friendly host.
Location of the apartment is excellent as its near to the bus stop and supermarkets.
Bondi beach is just few mins by bus/car and the city is around 30 mins away.
Spectacular view just outside of the apartment.
Apartment is really great and spacious. The kitchen is fully equipped with most cooking utensils. The apartment really suited to our needs and i really recommend Martin's place.
A great location with fantastic roof top views of the coast, and only a 50m walk to get there. A large bright and airy apartment across 2 floors with plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.
La location de l'appartement est dans un quartier privilégié de Sydney avec Bondi Beach et Watsons Bay à proximité. Le centre ville en bus est assez éloigné (1heure). L'appartement est agréable, bien équipé avec une terrasse ombragé pour prendre les repas. Martin est réactif par rapport aux demandes qui lui sont faites
The location really is excellent, and (to me) attractive. Easy car or bus trip to Sydney's best harbour beaches (or even a longish walk); and excellent bus service to Bondi. City and airport quite accessible by public transport (bus or bus+ferry), though trips are a bit slow. Flat was not left as clean and tidy as I would like, and both towels and pillow cases were missing, and we hard to dig around cupboards to find them. This seems to have been a problem with the cleaner rather than the flat, as the host was away at the time.
It's a great place and a spacious appartment. We stayed 6 nights, two adults and two children. But there were no sheets and no pillow-cases for the kids, and no towels for anyone. We have looked in the wardrobe, and there was no equipment. No glasses for each of us, and no housekeeping at all. everything was sticky in the kitchen, cobwebs and cat's hair;
As we came after the new year's day, it was full of rubbish ouside and no t easy to pass with the bags. So maybe cleaners didn't do their job correctly, but we are still waiting for our cleaning fees!
It was a lovely stay for 2.5 weeks, Martin is a very responsive and always ready to help. Thank you, Martin.
I only saw Martin twice but he was very pleasant and polite, a good guest.
A lovely guest, so easy, respectful and kind
I was a pleasure having Martin as a guest. He was polite, respectful towards the other people in the house, an all around good guy.
Martin was a great guest and very independent. Enjoyed having him stay at my place and would welcome him back anytime.
Thank you stay at my apartment!you are very good guest ,keep my house clean and tidy,hope you can come back next time!
Pleasure to host :)
A pleasure to have stay. Good communication and clean.
I have really enjoyed staying at Martin's house. It is quiet, spacious, light filled, fantastically located just a stone throw from spectacular cliffs overlooking the ocean. Martin was a great host and I would definitely stay here again!!
Martin is a fantastic guy and very well traveled and knowledgeable. His place is clean, big and in a very beautiful location! As a host Martin is very caring and considerate and always goes out of his way to make sure his guests are well taken care of and well informed. I'd recommend Martin as a host, and his wonderful place any day!
I've known Martin for 8 years - we've done business together and are friends. Marty's a solid guy - when he says he'll do something, he does it. He's pretty laid back but also very thoughtful.
