This was my first airbnb stay and Rory and Michael's home is wonderful as is their hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble and I could not imagine a better place to stay. Super clean, super comfortable; everything you need and more. Hope to be back soon Sheelagh

Another great stay at Rory and Michael's beautiful home in Double Bay. Great location, close to both public transport and fantastic restaurant and shops, and importantly - lovely people!

Rory and Michael were great hosts. The house is beautiful and very close to both the water and the shops around Double Bay. I honestly couldn't have imagined a better stay!

Another great stay at Michael and Rory's beautiful home. I'm going to miss their rather super automated coffee machine and more than that the beautiful Ella. Hope I get to stay again in 2017.

Rory was a great host and the house is spectacular. The guest bedroom and bathroom is located at the front of the house, so it feels like a very private space. The location is perfect too, a stone's throw from the best cafes, pubs and bars in Double Bay. Only a 5min walk from the ferry into the city, this place is heaven.

We had a fantastic time at Rory and Michael's beautiful home! Our bedroom and bathroom were impeccable, and we were very comfortable there. They made us feel extremely welcome, nothing was too much trouble. They were very friendly and helpful, advising us on where to dine and how to get the most out of the area. The location is fantastic, great restaurants, cafe's and shopping on your doorstep. We could relax in the evening without feeling in the way and loved chatting to them both. Bella the little dog was adorable and great to have around. We would highly recommend staying with Rory and Michael, they are wonderful hosts, and we were a little sad to leave!! Thanks Rory!!

We can't live without coffee, our dog and wine.
I am an Advertising Director and my partner Michael is a Lawyer. We are a mature gay couple.

We are no strangers to airbnb, we also use it to find accommodation overseas and locally.
This is our 2nd property hosting on airbnb - we previously rented out our entire apartment in the city prior to selling it.

We also love to travel and generally always mix up our accommodation on our trips. We appreciate attention to detail, top notch facilities and good old fashioned down to earth hospitality.

Our aim is to bring all this to you during your stay ensuring you are as comfortable as possible. We love Sydney and are able to share tips on the best places to eat, drink and socialise.
