We really enjoyed our stay in this property.excellent location for buses and ferries.
The property was well equipped with a great BBQ.
Plenty of towels etc were available.
And on top of all this we could sit and gaze at the Harbour Bridge ALL DAY LONG!
AVOID THIS PLACE AND THE OWNERS
We booked this place for 8 days in the summer knowing it would be hot in Sydney and requiring air conditioning in our search. We are from a warm weather climate and realized it would be necessary at that time or the year. In the listing ( I have a screen shot) the owners misrepresented that the unit had A/C ...it did not. On checking in at 8pm, it was over 95F in the unit. We immediately contacted the owners who said via message “ it was broken”, then later said “ there wasn’t any A/C” and suggested we use the ceiling fans and open the windows. I responded that this was unsatisfactory. After repeated messages, calls, and texts, I was finally able to speak to the owner directly at 11pm. He said he couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything. I then contacted VRBO customer service and they authorized me to move out.
Because it was so late ( now after 12:30am and no transport we stayed there that night with the fans on and windows open ( as the owners suggested) until we were swarmed by mosquitoes ( there are no screens on the windows!). Miserable night.
The next morning, the unit was 93 degrees by 9:30 am and when I could not get a response from the owners to provide A/C, and on the advice of VRBO, we moved out. I am currently pursuing the situation through VRBO since the owners were so unresponsive and uncooperative.
I urge anybody considering this unit to read this and the other negative reviews ( I am not the only one complaining and the stories are very similar!). Please recognize that if you are dealing with these owners you can expect them to misrepresent the property and be unresponsive. Caveat Emptor!
PS...the owners have subsequently updated the listing to not provide A/C but beware!
PPS...the view is great but the building looks like a prison from the outside!
Well... we have done airbnb and HomeAway hosting for over 8 years and I have never met such a rude, arrogant and disrespectful person as John. I explained to John that there was no air conditioning and it was not advertised as having it . Australia in February is extremely hot and we have just gone through one of the worst bushfire seasons in history . This contributed to the heat at this time .
John called my husband at 11pm and abused him with a tirade of messages and verbal abuse . At one point he caused him of drinking, even though he was woken from his sleep in bed .
Just rude and arrogant and we were willing to do whatever we could to help the situation but when someone screams abuse at you, it’s just not acceptable .
In my time of hosting guests, I have never met anyone as disgusting as this man. Some people will just never be happy ... they don’t know how to be happy and have fun and be great full for where they are. In front of the stunning sydney harbour with water breezes. We have never found it too hot with the breeze right on the harbour front . There is no such thing as mosquitoes at that apartment . I have never had a complaint or problem with mosquitoes. I think this has been added to embellish the fantasy in the mans head and justify his right to complain. This is Australia .... we don’t behave like this . I think this man might need medication as he obviously has a myriad of abusive tendencies and issues he needs to deal with more than simply being hot in Sydney in February Summer. Please don’t book in summer if you can’t handle our summer. It’s just the way it is here.
Maybe a hotel would have been more to your liking ? Harbour front in Sydney would have set you back $650 per night at least.
Apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
Great place to stay! Coffee and breakfast 2 blocks away. Ferry dock 2 blocks away.
Excellent location and price.
Thanks so much for the review Marie. We love the place and happy you loved it too.
