House Rules

I have created this house rules sheet to ensure that you can fully enjoy your stay in my Airbnb rental while also respecting the home and neighbourhood. Following these rules will greatly help me as Airbnb hosts by making sure the home is taken care of during your stay. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the items mentioned in this document.


I ask that you treat my Airbnb rental as if it were your own property. Please be aware of the condition of items in the house, and if you notice anything broken when you arrive, contact us to let us know.

I also ask that you watch noise levels at night, as I have a close relationship with my neighbours and do not want to cause any problems.


Please park your vehicle on Osborne Rd or the surrounding streets. It’s street parking only, if you need a permit during your stay, please let me know and be sure to leave it in the apartment when you check out.

Locking Up

Remember to lock up when you leave and at night. This is for your safety! Although our rental is in a safe neighbourhood, we take security very seriously.


The home is a non-smoking environment. Please smoke outside and dispose of your cigarettes in the trash. I appreciate your compliance!

Trash Disposal

You will find trash bags in the 2nd drawer. When the trash can is full, please remove the trash bag and take it to the bins at the rear of the building. Trash gets picked up by the city every Monday.


Please load the dishwasher prior to checking out if you have used any dishes. I will run the dish washer.

Extra Guests

Although I do not mind if you invite friends over to visit my home, please keep the number of guests to a limited amount. I do not allow unauthorized guests to sleep here. Please do not allow extra guests to sleep at the Airbnb unless previously agreed upon when you booked the rental.

Parties or Events

We do not allow guests to throw parties or events in our home, unless agreed upon during the booking process. Please be sure that extra guests leave by 1am. We greatly appreciate your compliance on this as we do not want any issues with our neighbors.


We do not allow pets in our home.

Broken Items

If for any reason you break an item during your stay, please let me know. I understand that accidents happen, but in order for me to fix or replace something for a future guest to enjoy, I will need to know that it is broken. I appreciate your honesty.

Checking Out

Please check out of our Airbnb rental by 11am. Checking out by this time ensures that I have enough time to clean the place and get it ready for our next guest. Let me know if this is going to be a problem so we can plan accordingly.

When you check out, leave the key in the secure lock box attached to the front door.

Once again, I appreciate your compliance with these rules. I love Airbnb and aim to provide our guests with the best experience possible during their stay. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Amazing 2-bed apartment 5 mins walk from the Manly ferries, restaurants and shops. Really close to the hop skip jump bus which can take you on a FREE journey around Manly and right next to the huge public swimming pool! Shona has been our best Airbnb host ever, great communication before, during and after our stay. Provided us with heaps of toys for our 3 year old Charlie as she has a son of the same age! Wonderful! Great tips on what to see and do, we travelled everywhere by ferry, bus or walking! Lovely warm sunny apartment, with a full kitchen at your disposal, brilliant hot rain shower, wonderful large bath, gorgeous lounge, very comfy warm beds, what more could we have asked for? Very very highly recommended and we would definitely stay again! Not many places have two bedrooms when you're travelling with a little one, so this was just perfect! Thankyou so much Shona! 10/10!!!

We recently stayed here and loved it! The apartment is in a great location, only 5 minutes walk to the ferry, town centre and beaches. The accommodation was clean, tidy and felt very homely with the lovely decor. It is an easy place to relax in. There were also great toys available for my little boy to play with. Shona was a fabulous host, always easily contactable and making sure all our needs were met. As we also had a baby, a portacot was provided and set up with cute sheets, blanket and some kids books. He slept very well in it. The only issues (minor) was that parking was not always able to be located in a close proximity to the front (once we nabbed one of those parks, we didn't move the car) and that the TV reception is great for some channels but intermittent for others. All in all, we highly recommend staying here. Thanks Shona!

I thoroughly enjoyed my (EMAIL HIDDEN)pared to other Airbnb's I preferred Shona's because of the quality of her home - the bed sheets, the appliances, towels, and the complementary treats. The stay at Shona's was very comfortable and I would stay at Shona's again. Thank you for letting my family and I stay at your beautiful clean home.

Originally from Melbourne, but have been in Sydney for 17 years. I own my own business and love to travel with my partner and son. If we're not by the beach, we're out exploring somewhere.
