Indoor fireplace

House Rules

No smoking sorry as it has disturbed my neighbours in the shared spaces , the front balcony & deck. Also my neighbours have sometimes complained about the noise. So if you can be aware of that and take your shoes off inside . A library , CD & DVD collection is available for use but please look after them and respect my beautiful furniture. I have a small herb garden on the front verandah & flowers on the back deck that you are welcome to enjoy and please water.

There is no dishwasher but a nice view as you wash up in the sink. No drier, you don't need one in such a sunny city. Just pop your washing on the line en route to the pool for a dip! No wifi connectind to the apartment but a mobile router can be supplied & you just purchase a prepaid voucher at the nearby Telstra shop. Please don't forget to leave the router when you go.

We enjoyed the remarkably good pieces of period piece furniture you have which brought back pleasant memories of family life in England many years ago. You also have a remarkably good DVD collection and only regret was not having enough time to play more than one! Your house is w…

The place was not air-conditioned and there was no screen on door to allow airflow without mosquitos which made the stay most uncomfortable. My brother, whom I booked this for, was sleep deprived for a week there....

Response from Alda:
I am very sorry Tony did not enjoy his visit. The cockroaches & mosquitoes are a fact of life in Sydney this time of year & by our standards I have very few. There are things I could have done to help Tony if he had spoken to me. He did not say anything even when we met a number of times in the street. I only dusted & vacuummed a short time before he arrived so if the place was dusty that was probably because I had all the doors & windows open to air the place & catch the breeze just before he came. Air-conditioning is not that common here. I have never lived in an air-conditioned home & do not like it. I am sorry if you were expecting it . I will update my site to make it absolutely clear I do not have it. Yes I do have a lot of stuff, including over 2,000 books but most people seem to like that about my house. I had asked Tony to let me know when he was leaving ( as I only had till 7 pm that evening to prepare for my next guests but he did not notify me that he had left early that morning. When I arrived at the apartment all the door & windows were wide open including the front door. I am not particularly security conscious but did expect my front door to at least be closed. Anyhow I am sorry Tony was not happy in Sydney. I hope he enjoyed the rest of his trip more.....Regards Alda

The house is in a great location and is furnished in the most unique and interesting way. Thousands of books make for an interesting browsing experience. The Kitchen benches needed a more thorough wipe and the scented sticks were a bit overwhelming. Alda is a charming host.

If you want a hotel experience, don't stay here. But if you've got a sense of freedom and style and like being internet-lite, then it's exactly the place for you. We had a great stay. Alda is helpful and unfussy, the flat and furnishings are stylish and comfortable, and the area …

I have recently taken a redundancy from work after 24 years working in Museums in Sydney and wish to spend at least half of the next few years travelling. Renting my lovely apartment will be hard because I enjoy spending time there but it is necessary to help support my travels. …
