We had a great stay at Sandy's apartment. Nice decoration, large rooms, good view on the bay, close to bus 311 and bear park for kids. We could even enjoy the roof top for NYE fireworks. Easy communication with Sandy. I recommend warmly.

Perfect location for exploring the area, 20-25 minute walk through the botanic gardens to get to the Opera House and on to Circular Quay. Heaps of great cafes and restaurants within minutes of the apartment. The property itself is as described and in a quiet building, and the kitchen has everything needed for a short stay. Don't miss the view from the roof!

Sandy was welcoming. The accommodation is equal to a 3 star hotel and lacked privacy due to no blinds in lounge room. The floors weren't clean.

Response from Sandy:
So sorry to read about Lee Anne and her guest's unhappiness. Weirdly enough, I vacuumed the floors myself while waiting for Lee-Anne's arrival so could only explain any grit she felt underfoot as what might have been tracked in on their 4 large wheely bags off a stormy footpath. I kindly remind any future guests that this listing is my home and is in no way a hotel. I'm lucky to have had every guest except Lee-Anne enjoy borrowing my home. Not such a meeting of spirits in this case.

It was lovely to stay at Sandy's apartment for 3 nights. She was very easy to contact and accomodating to our needs. I travelled with my parents and grandparents so there were 5 of us altogether, Sandy kindly made me a bed on the couch so that we could all fit into the 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was cosy and ecclectic, just as it appears in the photos. It had all the ammenities we needed and the location was close the city and the main tourist attractions. If I had the time, I would have liked to have explore the neighbourhood some more, it looks like there were many great restaurants and cafes only a few minutes away. My family and I all had a great experience!
