I had such a lovely stay at Chantal’s house. She is warm, friendly and interesting to chat to, and made me feel very welcome. The house has a lot of character, and the room is lovely – light and airy, with a sunny balcony overlooking rooftops. Thanks Chantal, I look forward to returning!

Amazing house with incredible host! The house is placed in a perfect spot for either students (UNSW is 15min walk) or for lovers of Sydney's beach (Coogee is also 15min walk). More exceptional than the property is Chantal. Quick response and extremely helpful. I highly recommend anyone staying here! It won't disappoint!

Very clean and tidy house. Close to public transport options. The owner is thoughtful and always keen to help. Also very practical for anyone studying or working at UNSW.

Chantal is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Her house is spacious with great views and just a short walk to the beach. The bed is comfortable and the room has a high ceiling and doors opening onto a small deck. I will have no hesitation staying again at Chantal's when I am back in Sydney.

Wonderful host, a very warm and kind lady. A special accommodation for a single host who wants not only a good accommodation but also to enjoy some pleasant moments spent with Chantal.

This was our second time staying with Chantal and it felt like coming back home. Chantal is the sweetest and we loved talking to her. She is very open minded, understanding and generous. You will definitely love staying at her place and won't want to leave!

Creative professional.I love walking & swims in the morning. Well travelled, love of learning and meeting new people. I'm lucky to live in such a great part of Sydney - it's fabulous to live near the coast and beaches but also be close to the inner city.

The photos of the party - are the air bnb Sydney party - Cockatoo Island - the bloke with me in sunglasses is airbnb founder, Brian!

I lead a busy life, but of course happy to suggest & chat about the great things to do during your stay, typically my guests are fairly independent.
