Interaction with guests

It's likely you won't meet me at all. I tend to leave the key out for my guests so that you can time your own arrival.

Other things to note

Things you need to know about the house;

You are about to rent my house. This is not a hotel or usually an empty space. You will find my things in the house, my clothes in the cupboards, and my daughters toys in her room. I do everything possible to hide these items from view. If you anticipate to need cupboard space please advise me prior to your stay, as it’s a city apartment with little storage, but I can certainly make sure one or two shelves are empty for your clothes.

The house is not suitable for very small children. It’s not baby proofed any more as my daughter is 8. Child proofing the house will be a stressful event for you. I suggest to look for a more suitable place in that case.

There is construction going on next door, which is outside of my control The master bedroom will hear some of the noise (depends on the day) the back room will be nice and quiet still.

You will likely not meet me on arrival. Typically the house is only available because I am away myself. So no reception or welcoming committee will greet you. I will ensure to advise you where to find the keys and you can arrive at your leisure.

If you need anything at all, message me. If you can’t find the coffee plunger, or the parking area, or if you run into any issue at all with the house, please just let me know and I can assist you. I love my home and am proud of it and hope you can help me keep it that way.

Please enjoy the pool, the courtyard and the close proximity to the city. Sydney is a great place and I hope my unit is a comfortable place from which to explore.

Jen was away when we arrived but we had contact details for her friend for the key, so we could let ourselves in without any problem. Lovely apartment, plenty of room and awesome location - quiet but close to the city with great public transport, cafés & restaurants. We would love to stay again

Yen was very helpful in making sure that everything about our stay was nice and easy. Hers is a nice cosy apartment, perfectly suited to our family of four looking for a base to explore the city from. The pool complex is amazing. We were there every day and it is certainly a feature that lifts this apartment above others we have stayed it. It really is an exceptional facility and never busy or crowded. The kids loved it. Balmain is a great area to stay. We checked out a few local cafes and restaurants including those within minutes walk of the apartment. All were great and highly recommended. The streets of Balmain are a bit of a rabbit warren but we soon got to grips with the quickest way to the supermarket. The ferry is a nice, quick and cheap way to get into the city although it is a bit of a walk from the apartment. We rented a car for the week we were there, which was usefuol even just to drive to the ferry wharf. Yen went out of her way to make sure we could use her parkign spot, even though that meant moving her own car out. That was a nice touch and really helped. Overall, an excellent stay.

Jen's apartment was just located perfect for us. It is in a quiet area near the ferry and bus stops. All relevant shopping facilities are in walking distance and you get to the CBD within 20min by bus or ferry. There are lots of nice coffee places around if you don't want to do breakfast yourself. We stayed at Jen's over New Years Eve and she recommended to watch the fire work from Ballst Point Park which was perfect in terms of view and was not so crowded.

Jen was away when I booked and stayed, so she had her friend help out with the keys and access. All went well, we had a great time. Location is ideal with easy access to the local neighbourhood and CBD. Bus access is cheap and quick. $12-15 Uber ride to the city. Also quintessential Sydney water views down the road.

We have just stayed in Jen's appartment for 5 days over new years eve. The place is very nice and Jen makes it so easy to stay there. Our boys loved the impressive swimmingpool and used it every day. I can highly recommend to book this appartment. We also loved the lokal area in Balmain and enjoyed the cafes, restaurant and yoga in the park. If you don't now what area to choose in Sydney then choose Balmain - we love it ;) New years eve in Mort park was perfect and we had amazing views to the firework and enjoyed celebrating the evening with the locals.

Jen was on holidays when we arrived, but organised a friend to meet us. It was all so easy. The apartment was clean and comfortable. We have two boys and it was very child friendly. Having access to the indoor pool was fantastic.
