We had a fantastic stay in Wollongong. Cathryn and Rod were the perfect hosts from even before we arrived! Cathryn sent us a list of recommendations before we arrived so we could start planning our trip. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Cathryn who showed us around and ensured we had everything we needed. The extra touches left by Cathryn, such as strawberries and yogurt, wine, cheese and biscuits, were just what we need after a long drive. Thanks Cathryn and Rod for making our stay so comfortable!

We had another great stay with Cathryn, this was our third time which says a lot about her capabilities as a host! She was flexible with check in and check out, communicated really well with us and as usual provided really generous personal touches to make the stay really comfortable.

Had a really nice 2nd visit to Cathryn's apartment. Her place was spotlessly clean and really comfortable. The extra touches like fresh fruit, cheese and what were probably the best biscuits I've EVER eaten were really appreciated. I'd have no hesitation in recommending people to stay here.

Response from Cathryn:
I am glad you enjoyed the biscuits. I've had enquiries for accommodation based on the Chocolate Nut Slice reviews. :) You are most welcome to visit again.

We have just returned from our trip to the area of Wollongong and cannot thank Cathryn and Rodney enough for their hospitality and knowledge of the local area. Without them we would not have been able to see or do as much as we did. This was our first Airbnb experience and it exceeded all of our expectations. Cathryn and Rodney went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were always available to answer any questions that we had. All of the little touches that they do for your stay all adds up to making your stay unforgettable! The unit that we stayed in for our time here is beautiful and we could quite easily have set up home there. There is everything you need to make your stay wonderful. We have no hesitations in recommending this delightful little home away from home to anyone. Thank you for everything Cathryn and Rodney!

The stay with Cathryn and Rod was wonderful, The apartment is exactly as described with a lovely view and your own private entrance. The neighbourhood was nice and quiet but was a short distance from town centre and beach but you could still see the ocean from out the front of the house. The train station was a short walk away which made it very convinient for us. We arrived to a welcoming home made treat selection and fresh towels and linen. Brilliant instructions/guide which helped out loads. Was exactly what we needed after staying in hostels, felt like a home away from home. Would happily book again. Thank you again, Sam and Rach

Interaction with guests

We enjoy people and happy to interact as much or as little as the guests would like.
When available we are happy to share a meal or cheese & wine on the verandah.
Rod & I love to show off our city and surrounds with recommendations for restaurants, coffee, bush walks, sightseeing and cycling.

About Cathryn

Rod and I love to travel, the outdoors and people. We enjoy cycling, snow skiing, bushwalking and good coffee.
We've traveled extensively and love every place we've visited. We believe every place has something wonderful to enjoy. Traveling and meeting people is a fantastic learning environment.
In February 2013 we travelled to USA for 6 weeks, skiing for 2 in Colorado then continued through Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California for the next 4 weeks. Amazing. The USA was our introduction to Airbnb where we stayed with two hosts :-)
Work has allowed us to visit beautiful locations throughout Australia, we have also completed some great walks within Australia and New Zealand.
We love nothing better than entertaining guests on our verandah with a wine and food to enjoy the serenity and scenery of our beautiful city.
