I am Carmel !
A Designer and teacher living in Sydneys inner west.
Carmel was wonderful, the room had everything u need, very accommodating, close to public transport, shops, airport. Nice little balcony to enjoy the sun. Would definately recommend, thank u.
A nice layover after arriving from a long flight. Carmel offered information when asked, told us about a nice market on Sunday morning just down the street and offered ideas about which beach was the best. Thanks for our first AirBnB experience.

Carmel gave us lots of privacy. As we were very busy with our things this was great for us! Nevertheless if you need some information Carmel is happy to help you. The area around is really nice and hip.
Close to Marrickville shopping centre and close to bus stops to the city. Nice to stay for a few days
The flat is conveniently located and about 10-15 minutes by bus to the centre of town.
It is up four flights of stairs, but the room is a large double and very comfortable, a towel was kindly provided by Carmel and the bathroom and kitchen had everything you needed.
The noise from the airport was quite loud and sometimes there were flights passing right overhead quite early in the morning, so you may need to bear that in mind.
You have access to a coin operated washer and dryer in the laundry room on the ground floor, which is very handy.
Great location, close to transport yet a quiet night's sleep. And Carmel was very helpful.
My first experience with airbnb was most enjoyable, The room was comfortable and sunny, The flat was clean and Carmel was a good hostess, The five flights of stairs was no problem to me but an older person may find them hard to negotiate. No microwave but I was able to use the kitchen for preparing meals
Carmell's place was a good location for what we wanted to do. Lot's of cool funky cafes and bars round the area and newtown. We were happy with our stay.
It's a very nice apartment; clean, cosy and plenty of space for a couple to stay. The house is situated about a 10 min drive from the airport. Though the nearest train station is about 10 min walk, but the bus outside the house can easily bring people to the city, and in fact it is even more convenient than the train. I rate it 5 stars.
We had a great time in Sydney with Carmel. Her apartment is on the top floor of a short walk-up close to Newtown and absolutely some of the best coffee down the street. Personally we'd liked that she was an unobtrusive host and we got to use some of the kitchen which saved us a little cash. Only thing is that the area is within the landing path of aircraft to Sydney airport so it gets noisy a couple of times a day, but there is a curfew on aircraft flying at night so gets better. Would stay again if there's a chance.
Great guests - lovely to host. Thank you!
