+ Amazing, astonishing view to the city. This view you'll remember for years. + Great location in the very heart of old neighborhood. You have all you need in walking distance: shops, restaurants and interesting architecture. + Christine provides very useful things for travelers: umbrellas, local transport cards, maps, brochures and chargers for your gadgets. - It's not very easy to find Christine at home. So you can check in later than you expected and have no opportunity to find your host for check out or if wifi doesn't work. - IMPORTANT. Be careful with all strict rules written in Christine's profile. Read them twice. They are so far from hospitality, that you normally have with other hosts all over the world. Notice, that you can't leave your bag even for couple hours after check out. Thanks Airbnb managers for help and assistance!

Response from Christine:
Mikhail's review disappointingly demonstrates his poor communication. He agreed to all check-in arrangements and options when he booked 2 days before a public holiday where I had pre-existing plans. He agreed to a late check-in despite an earlier option (at my inconvenience). I have 24/7 availability for comms via the app or my mobile for any issues which he did not raise till this review. He failed to respond multiple times to my text messages. This review is more likely sour grapes because he showed a complete lack of respect for my very clear house rules so that I can have time to prep for the next guest, that I've had to follow up on. Airbnb is NOT a hotel. He enjoyed a $2M view for a budget price in an unrenovated 70s apartment in arguably one of the best city fringe suburbs of Sydney. So the price trade off is that it does have stains on the old carpet, but it's very clean, as other reviews and my superhost status will attest to. You'd be easily paying $250+ per night for this apartment if it was freshly renovated. Please stay at a hotel if you want a hotel experience and pay the price.

I had such a pleasant experience staying at Christine's. Christine made me feel very welcome and at ease with everything. The place was immaculate, lovely decor, and it had a really nice feel about it. I loved the area too, everything was a walking distance. All the shops, cafes, bars, gyms, just few minutes walk. It was perfect for me. It was my first experience with Airbnb, and I am extremely happy with it. Thank you Christine.

Great location, clean room, but 50 dollar late fee for arriving after 9pm excessive and not negotiable!

Response from Christine:
Thanx for your comments Tom. I aim to keep the overall price low and work on a fair use, user pays system. Reasonable price for your convenience and my personal inconvenience. 24/7 is for hotels at hotel prices. Everything is clearly outlined in the profile prior to booking. Once you'd actually read the full details you agreed verbally this was reasonable. Your comments are therefore disappointingly contradictory. Best wishes.

A very nice room with a GREAT view, a big comfy bed and enough space for my things. Christine was very friendly and helpful and always there if needed. I also liked the neighbourhood with lots of shops, cafés and restaurants but nevertheless Christine's appartment is very quiet. The train station is also very near and if you like you can also walk into the city centre - a very nice walk along the water and through the park. I enjoyed my stay with Christine very much!
