I stayed with Mel for 4 weeks on arriving into Sydney to make it my new home. Mel is incredibly welcoming and is always happy to give recommendations, advice on where to go what to do etc.... plus she also cooks a great mac 'n' cheese!!... it was a great place to stay, especially as my 1st step in setting up a new life for myself in Sydney. The house and room are beautiful, just per the pictures and Redfern is a really convenient location for getting pretty much anywhere, plus the area has lots of great cafes / bars / restaurants. I would definitely stay with Mel again and have no hesitation in recommending others too.
Mel's place was perfect for my short visit in Sydney. Only a short walk away from the Redfern station, I could easily get to the city. And in the neighbourhood itself, there were quite a few brunch and coffee places worth trying.
Mel herself was very warm and welcoming. She made sure I was settled in and had everything I needed. There was a small hiccup with the timing of my arrival, but Mel was very helpful and kept in touch so that I could 'check-in' even though she wasn't home to meet me. Mel also generously prepared some basic items for the stay. I really appreciated that I did not need to buy an Opal card, or an umbrella for this trip. Mel's place was also bright and so pretty, I felt like I definitely made the right choice when deciding between Airbnb and a budget hotel room. Would definitely stay at Mel's place again if I return to Sydney!
Staying at Mel's place was perfect! The room is clean and bright and she is a friendly, informative, and welcoming hostess. When I arrived, Mel showed me her home and my room, offered me a drink and we chatted for a while. I was very comfortable sharing her home and the upstairs bathroom. Mel is quiet and considerate and her dog is friendly and sweet too.
Mel also knows her neighborhood and public transport so was very helpful in answering all my questions about how to get around and where to find things. I would love to stay with her again if I return to Sydney.
Mel made me feel instantly welcome. Hey house is beautiful; reminded me in many ways of my old place in Amsterdam, and I felt very comfortable there immediately.
The bed was very comfortable, the room is airy and spacious, with space in the built-in wardrobes for your clothes. Yay.
The location is brilliant; I need to be in the CBD most days when in Sydney so it's about a 5 minute walk from Mel's place to Redfern Station and then two stops to Town Hall.
I would happily stay there again.
Hey, really enjoyed my time at Mel's place in Redfern, the house is beautiful and the room is as showed. Great location with lot's of nice places to eat nearby. Close to central station and the prince Alfred park which has an outdoor pool. Mel was a lovely host with lots of useful tips and directions. Would defo stay again. Thanks x
Great hospitality from the host. On my arrival, she was on her overseas trip. She ask her niece to help me with all the stuff. And I personally scare of dogs since young, she patiently tell me how to handle her dog. Nice & patient host. Her place is clean with WiFi. Also near town area. Recommended stay!
Mel's house was beautiful and the room was lovely. The area is cute, with some good restaurants and coffee shops around the corner, and in walking distance to the central station.
Mel welcomed me on my arrival date and helped me feel like at home. She and her dog Harry are lovely, Mel gave me a lot of local tips and was always there for a nice talk or dinner during the ten weeks.
Her house is amazing: clean, tidy, enough space for everyone and looked exactly like on the pictures. Redfern is a great place to stay in Sydney. It's close to supermarkets, train and bus stations, parks and all you need during your stay. You can also walk into the city as it's not far away.
I would highly recommend Mel's place and would stay there again.
Lovely house, Mel was away but very helpful and made sure everything was really easy and simple for the stay.
We loved our stay with Mel and Harry. Both were a delight. The house is beautiful, open, airy and functional and so conveniently located - the CBD is only a short train ride or 30 minute walk. There are cafes literally located on Mel's doorstep. Brilliant host and beautiful accomodation. One of my best Airbnb's yet. Thanks!
Mel is lovely and easy to get along with, whether you want to have a chat or do your own thing I would highly recommend her as a host. She has great local knowledge and would happily give advice on the hot or next-big-thing restaurants and bars in the area. The place is STUNNING having recently been renovated, spotlessly clean and you receive a TON of natural light. As an experienced Airbnb-er I would give Mel's place 5 stars!
