Close to Lane Cove Road, walking distance to public transport and excellent shopping only a couple of minutes away - this is the place you want if you're after value for money close to Sydney.
It started with Harry who was more than willing to accommodate my last minute request (literally check in that afternoon) for a two week stay. Sent him an email with an immediate reply and he confirmed my stay. He gave me details about the property, who was living there and what times they would be home. For a guy new to the share house environment, it made my stay that little more comfortable. Harry is an awesome person to deal with!
That said, the property is very modern, new build with apartment style living. The room has an ensuite and ducted air conditioning that's controlled from in your room. It's rather easy to think that you're not in shared accommodation.
The bathroom was a little dirty and the sheets did need changing, but Harry let me know about this before confirmation and made sure it was ok. He supplied all the cleaning materials and clean sheets - all I needed to do was put them on.
For a last minute reservation on Airbnb, I think I may of hit the jackpot. It's one of the best rooms for the price in Sydney. "Value for money" is something you don't often get in this city - but Harry is the exception. If the need arises, I'll be back staying with Harry for sure.
