If the number of guests changes between when you book (eg, for 2 guests), and when you check-in, just let us know fairly about your change of plans.
Please don't make a reservation with us if you are a smoker. Sorry - but we seek to keep our environment smoke-free for other guests. We've not allowed pets to date.
At check-in, we provide you with your own key (there's obviously a replacement fee if lost). We also go through a brief condition report to be signed at check-in to help ensure your security deposit is returned in full if we get our apartment back in the same tidy condition in which we rent it out! Please return the signed condition report to us within 24 hours.
DURING YOUR STAY
The basic rule is just to follow common sense and you can't go wrong. This means please don't turn on air conditioning if you have the windows/skylights open. The air conditioner obviously isn't then cooling the room & just blows straight out the window. Never flush sanitary products or baby wipes in the toilet. You will block the sewerage and lose your security deposit.
We ask guests to please enter and leave the property quietly out of respect for our neighbours.
Guests for longer than one week stay receive two sets of linen, and are responsible for their own laundry during the visit.
We likewise provide toilet paper, hand soap & washing up liquid on arrival, but guests buy their own additional as required along with their other groceries (supermarkets are within walking distance – detailed in the Guidebook).
Given the laundromats nearby, washing clothes in the apartment sink isn't appropriate and so not allowed. Laundry can easily be done at the following (though prices may alter over time):
- My Wash House, Shop 1/66 Clark Rd, Neutral Bay - $13/load, open everyday but Sunday.
-Bagman Laundrette, 69 Military Rd, Neutral Bay - $15/load, or
-self-(email hidden) Laundrette, 43a Spofforth St, Cremorne - $5 own load wash and $1/7 minutes of drying, 730am-630pm weekdays and 8-5 weekends.
Please don't direct your postal mail to our address without asking us. Its easy to rent a post office box in Neutral Bay if you need one.
To avoid damaging the table, kindly use the placemats provided or tablecloth for meals (located in bottom drawer of kitchen).
Given the heating/cooling works to regulate the apartment temperature within 5 minutes, it is not necessary (or safe) to leave it on while you are out. We will deduct a portion of your security deposit if you leave A/C on with skylights open! (You’re not cooling or heating the room with the windows open). We simply ask you not to waste power or water by leaving lights or taps running unnecessarily.
The apartment is professionally cleaned prior to your arrival (with the cleaning fee paid) and has routine pest control done. Please don't leave food uncovered lying around the kitchen, as it attracts pests. Surface spray for any bugs is located under the bathroom sink.
We leave skylights on the narrow latch when we are out to ensure security (including from possums!)
Guests are responsible for taking out rubbish weekly (see House Manual) and for their own cleaning. We provide a dustbuster/ vacuum in the roof cupboard. Bathroom and kitchen cleaning products are in the cupboards below the sinks. You are asked to empty your dustbuster (including of hair) when you leave.
We reserve the right to inspect the property during the visit if we have reason for concern about the condition in which it is being kept or how electricity / water is being used.
The House Manual contains other tips & is provided to you by AirBNB after a reservation is confirmed.
Before check-out, we leave a basket for you to please put in all used sheets, towels and kitchen teatowel. We also provide bin liners to put in after you empty rubbish from the bathroom & kitchen.
Please empty the bathroom and kitchen bins into the red-lid rubbish bin downstairs, and any recyclables into the yellow-lidded wheelie bin. Its important never to put rubbish in the green lidded wheelie bin, which is for garden waste only (and your security deposit is deducted the fee if we are fined for putting rubbish there). Please don't dump boxes or other excess packaging with us when you leave, as local Council will also charge a disposal fee deducted from the security deposit.
Dishes/cutlery etc must be washed and put away and the kitchen surfaces clean, and the microwave wiped out. If you leave drawers/ cupboards full of dirty coffee cups, dishes or saucepans - washing fees are then deducted from the security deposit.
Except for items we provided on arrival (like butter, milk, breakfast things), the fridge & cupboards must be emptied of all food. This includes frozen food. None of your food or empty containers should be left in cupboards (other than what you found there - such as tea, coffee, sugar etc).
We appreciate guests staying here completing the review on AirBNB within a week of your stay finishing. We of course promise to do yours too!
Main house garden shown here at dusk, lies adjacent to the studio. Studio entrance is separate to give guests privacy in not having to come & go via the main house
The studio was great. Jessica was a very friendly host and went out of her way to make sure i had everything i needed. The location, although a little tricky to find initially, is really good. Walking distance to the harbour bridge. Car parking is available which is a great plus also.
The reservation was canceled 159 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very accessible and approachable host, with the studio located close to several places of interest (park, supermarkets, train station). Makes traveling around Sydney a breeze, and cozy, clean apartment made our stay extremely enjoyable. Affordable price compounded our liking of the place. Would thoroughly recommend this studio to any prospective travelers. Also, Jessica giving us a ride to the train station after checkout was nothing short of amazing service. Thank you so much!
Nice and tidy studio. About 15mins walk to North Sydney Station.
quick access even for a late arrival (easy access to the key). food for good breakfast in the fridge
Loved it! Nice and quiet. Clean and comfortable. Perfect for my stay. Jessica was an excellent host. Her attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Highly recommend!
