Great spot in Balmain
Unit very well presented and had everything you need for a great stay.
Well located with restaurants directly across from the unit and about 10 minute walk to Balmain shops
Perfect stay in Balmain
I ended a wonderful trip to Australia and New Zealand with 4 days in Sydney. The trip had been energetic and Russell’s home in Sydney was the perfect finish to the trip. The home is well appointed and beautiful (gorgeous pool, deck for relaxing, laundry, great kitchen and bath), Russell is a terrific host and the neighborhood is the ideal retreat for a weary traveler (good restaurants within walking distance, parks nearby and good access to transportation options).
I am a walker and exploring Balmain was a delight. It is less than 6 minutes to the bus, a little over 10 minutes to the shops/ restaurants of Darling Street and around 15 minutes to the ferry warf (which I visited frequently- the ferry system around Sydney Harbor is one of the best ways to see the area). I cannot think of a single thing I would change.
I ran into Russ on one of my walks and you would have thought he was a lifelong friend. It was a special kind of experience. One I won’t forget. I will plan to return with my wife.
Good on You , Russ! Thank you!
Issues made this a three star stay
1 getting in and meeting the owner
2 no lift 4 flights of stairs and 3 suitcases to take up and down
3 internet and tv very slow had to get a technician to service the WiFi etc
The owner was very helpful and we appreciate that
I don't understand your concern about meeting me. Your flight was over an hour late & I met you at about 11pm at night, as soon as you called me.
I'm sorry you didn't realise that there was no lift. I did try to help you by carrying one of your heavy suitcases up the stairs.
Can't say anything about the internet. It is totally out of my hands when it comes to technology. I have spent a further 3 hours with the technician today, & they have at last fixed the problem. I'm sorry that it was slow for you.
Thank you for leaving our apartment clean & tidy, I gave you 5 stars, & have recommended you to other hosts.
If you are ever back in Sydney you are very welcome to stay again.
This was the most hospitable VRBO we have ever stayed at. Everything was there for us, including OPAL Transit passes. We very much enjoyed our stay!
Great area for us will return when we need to go to synnet
Everything was good had everything we needed
Well situated and reasonable tariff for Sydney.
Couple of minor issues noted to the owner which I am sure will be rectified.
Internet and lock up parking included.
Probably needs curtains in lounge/dining area to limit radiation of cold through windows.
Would stay here again.
