This is a gem located right in the city of Sydney. Gilbert offered very good tips on what to do, and it was pleasant communicating with him all the way. He would offer and make me tea every time I was back. I was also pleasantly surprised that there are a couple of restaurants just downstairs, and an awesome gelato place (Messina) within walking distance. Actually the whole neighbourhood is full of cafes, restaurants, but it's still nice, quiet and private. Very nice running route to the Sydney Opera House as well, perfect thing to do in the mornings.

I'm having a great stay at Gilbert's place. Everything's well prepared by him for his guests. I met him several times, mostly after work hours, and he's so nice. He gave me lots of helpful informations that I needed while staying at Sydney. The room's clean and having beautiful view, even you can see Sydney Tower from the room. It's close to the bus stops and easy to go anywhere. Definitely will come back

Gilbert's apartment is in a great location-a short walk to everywhere with great cafes and restaurants around. It has easy yet secure access, a spacious bedroom and balcony as well as a lovely private bathroom with quality products. The living area is welcoming and he is a very friendly host. There were a couple of extra guests staying over the weekend which I wasn't aware of, but they were quiet and friendly as well. Would stay again :)

Gilbert´s place is very convenient as it is close to CBD and has easy access to public transport. The room is comfortable, well equipped (the only downside was not having an aircon, but a fan is available) has a private bathroom and it is very clean. Gilbert is a nice guy, very helpfull, polite and friendly. He oferred us some breakfast, two opal cards and many tips about the neighborhood. Great host, great stay.

Gilbert was a very welcoming host. He mapped out where we had to go and ensured we knew the public transport timetable. He ensured there was breakfast for us. We look forward to staying again. Thanks.
