A perfect host and apartment! I booked Michael's place for myself and 3 girlfriends that were visiting from NYC because I wanted them to experience Bondi and be near the beach for a few days. The apartment is nice and quiet but still within a few minutes walk to all the excitement of cafes, shops & bars in the heart of Bondi as well as the famous beach. Michael was a great host and gave us so many tips on where to go and what to do while we were there. He supplied us with a guide to the apartment with even more info on the area and was kind enough to let us stay until early evening our our last day. Oh and he even left us a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift--so unexpected and so kind of him!
The apt was super clean, spacious and has a great outdoor space. We were there in winter but still managed to bask in the sunshine and have a BBQ so I can only imagine how great the space is in summer. There was a brand new huge, comfy sofa (I mention this because a previous review complained about the old one) and the kitchen was definitely a chef's kitchen-it's big and has everything you need to create a feast.
We honestly had a blast and loved the apt--I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Bondi Beach. And a big, big thanks to Michael-I will absolutely be booking with you again!
Good location and well proportioned apartment close to the main activity areas of Bondi. Personable hosts.
However there are severe short comings mainly in the standard and functioning of furnishings and equipment. The leather sofa in the photo is now disintegrating and covered with sheets to conceal. The dishwasher leaked and the oven has a control knob missing and the temperature dial is so worn as to be illegible. Both of these appliances are very ancient.
The standard of cleanliness needs to be better. The first thing we did was to hire in a professional cleaner for three hours, plus my wife set to. It may be acceptable to two guys living there, but was not good enough for a family with a five month old infant.
The hosts tried to help rectify some of the problems, but as they do not own the apartment, some of the required actions were outside their direct control. We wasted some of our early vacation waiting for workmen.
This could be a fantastic place to stay once the issues mentioned have been sorted out. Until that happens it is overpriced and does not reflect value for money.
Michael was really helpful and allowed me to check-in extra early on the saturday morning! Great location in the heart of Bondi Beach, just a few blocks of the beach, surrounded by many cafes, restaurants and stores.The place is spacious, well furbished and comfortable, with a great outdoor area. It is the perfect place if you are just looking to enjoy Bondi, the beaches and its way of life!
This house is awesome, really clean, spacious, and in the heart of all the bars, shops, restaurants! Michael is a top bloke and always at the end of the phone for any queries or questions. On arrival theres notes on the best places for food, how to get into the city etc, and other very helpful information. Really enjoyed the stay and would highly recommend this place and host to anyone.
I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone on airbnb.
The apartment is in a great location with the beach, transport and shops all so close. The apartment was big, very well presented and clean. We arrived to towels on the bed and notes with directions to the local POI including supermarket, transport, restaurants and bars.
We were pleasantly surprised that the outdoor area has been upgrade from the pictures and now includes a large comfortable lounge and table which we were able to enjoy in the afternoon.
Michael was very helpful and easy to deal with as a host even providing information for our arrival so we wouldn't get lost!
Thanks again Michael!
My family had a great stay at Michael's apartment. It's located in a fantastic spot - just a short walk to great cafes and of course Bondi beach! The apartment itself was lovely, clean and had everything my family might need. Michael was an excellent host - his communication was great and he provided clear directions as well as some helpful tips on the area such as his favourite places to eat and drink. We also really appreciated his flexibility with check-in/out.
Michael is a great guest, he was easy to communicate and left the house in great condition. I'll recommend him to the airbnb community
