Hello everyone and thank you for checking out my listing! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
My Mum had a wonderful stay at Cindi's Art Retreat. The location is outstanding, with Gordon's Bay a stone's throw away. The house is lovely and peaceful, and a real oasis in the heart of Clovelly. The city is a half hour bus journey away and all the Eastern beaches are on your doorstep. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Happy New Year!

This delightfully compact accommodation provides a peaceful location in a very friendly neighbourhood. Our stay was for 6 weeks and we found it to provide all that we needed to be comfortable although we did on occasion miss having a dining table! The kitchen is tiny and therefore really easy to keep clean! It provides an array of condiments as well as a good range of utensils and crockery fit for a domestic goddess.... The central living space is cozy and cheerful. We were grateful for the heater, at the start and end of day, but found it tricky to maintain an ambient temperature at these times - we got used to turning it on and off and it wasn't a hardship. The range of lighting is a great addition and we regularly used the softer standard lamps and table lamps to brighten the rooms. The Wifi worked like a dream as did the TV and DVD and all the appliances.
In the bedroom there is ample clean storage space and the bed itself sports good quality linen which is particularly welcome if like us you have just arrived from a 14 hour flight!
We did need to purchase adaptors for our european computers as we forgot to pack them but a very friendly neighbour offered to drive us to the hardware store so that we could buy them. This friendliness is evident throughout the community and you can easily get to know the locals at the Clovelly shops and cafes etc.
The bathroom is spotless and very airy and the shower is a dream....
The laundry facilities work well with a washing machine and outside drying facility as well as a tumble drier for the odd rainy day! The iron and ironing board do what they are supposed to - which really is the story for Cindi's place.
There is a wealth of information provided about the unit itsef and also the surrounding area. Bus stops are just 5 minutes away and buses run frequently to the centre - it takes about 40 minutes to get to the Opera House) and to Bondi ( taking about 20 minutes).
On the doorstep there are amazing coastal walks and beaches which are breathtaking and revitalising - a photographer's paradise.
From selecting and booking the trip through to our leaving the unit Cindi provided excellent information, guidance and assistance and I thoroughly recommend her as a host and her Coast Walk Art Retreat as an experience not to be missed!
Cindi was the best host; warm, welcoming and very helpful. Not only did she send us bus routes but also went out of her way to send a picture of the entrance to help us determine suitability for my husband who has a physical handicap.
The weather was cold and rainy for much of our stay so the fabulous gas heater was very welcome and did a great job of heating the whole apartment. Despite the weather we were able to enjoy the ocean walk on several occasions.
The apartment was very comfortable for two people and we were able to have our son stay over on two Saturdays.
Wonderful stay! Great location just 5 min walk from Clovelly Beach and from 2 scuba dive spots (also good fro sknorkeling): Gordon's Bay and Shark Point (very beautiful, no shark). 5 min walk to a bus stop to Central station. Very peaceful and airy area. Friendly neighbours. Free parking in the street. We spent one month, 2 adults and 2 toddlers, so it was a bit small for 4 for a long stay. Please note that there is no door between the living room and the bedroom, and that the table in the living room is a coffee table (large one). Otherwise other important things to know are in the listing and on other comments.
Cindy always answered quickly and efficiently our questions.
We strongly recommend!
Location of this apartment is second to none, coastal walks, snorkeling area's excellent. Superb bus routes into the city, Bondi and other local beaches.
Found that Coogee was less than 10 minutes walk away for night life and restruarnts.
We stayed for 3.5 weeks. The apartment is cosy and very well located. We had a very nice time! Thank you Cindi
Cindis was a great little place. Quiet location, nice fittings, it was a pleasure and wouldnt hesitate to stay again.
Lovely small clean quiet apartment, away from the bustle of teh city but easily access tot he city. Off Street parking was not a problem. Easy access to the cliff/beach walk. Due to its ground floor location there is no view and little sun light. Apartment was well stocked and bathroom was top grade. WiFi worked great but don't expect much on TV. Perfect for 2 adult and a child, any more would be a stretch.
Very enjoyable stay, I could recommend to everyone.
The name "Art Retreat" is exactly what it is - professionally designed decor that radiates not only warmth and happy feelings, but as soon as you step in the unit, you know the owner wants your stay to be as comfortable as possible... hospitality down to every detail. Will definitely recommend your place to friends.
We've had the pleasure of having Cindi as our guest for several months. We had never done a long-term rental like this, and we were so happy to offer it to Cindi. She is easy-going, intelligent, funny and considerate. As an airbnb host herself, she understands how to be a good guest, and always keeps us updated on what she needs (which has been almost nothing over the past three months. We will be sad to see her go.
Cindi was a great guest. I highly recommend her to any other host on airbnb. She left the apartment in exactly the same condition and was very friendly and pleasant to communicate with leading up to, and during, her stay. Book her now!
Cindi is a positive, generous and outgoing person. She fits in well with everyone. Cindi has a lovely demeanor that lets people be comfortable and relaxed around her. She also has a fantastic home and I'm sure she'll make sure her guests are taken cared of by making her home a cozy home away from home. Cindi is a great person and I can definitely vouch for that!
Clever, talented and beautiful this woman is and a great friend to boot. Walking through life we all need someone with whom we can trust and Cindi is one of those people. She treats all the universe with fairness and clear eyes. A true gem.
