G'Day from Vinh & Stuart in Sydney!

Thanks for coming to check out our listing :)

We have another btw... http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/73639 if this one is unavailable "Sydney City Home with Harbour Views"; our spare room in the attic.

We're pretty relaxed hosts, and as Sydney's #1 hosts we play an active part in the Airbnb community, but we fully appreciate staying with someone else, in their home home, is not for every-one. We get it, our place isn't for everyone. So we won't be offended if you leave this listing (there's plenty of other great Airbnb listings to choose from that don't offer a hosted experience).

As we were among the first Airbnb'ers in Australia (travellers + hosts) we've developed quite an extensive profile based on all the guest questions we've answered over the years.

Reading through the description to the end (hint hint), and the "House Rules", will mean you'll find all the important information you need to make your Sydney Airbnb stay a fantastic one.

Feel free to send us a message with any question you have about us, our home, Pyrmont, Sydney, or Airbnb... We'd love to hear from you! :D

Couple of things you do need to know before you book:

--> STEEP STAIRS - Because the house is on three levels, and the stairs are steep, we wouldn't recommend the property for people who like to travel with lots of luggage, people with any mobility issues, or for children.

--> TALK WITH US FIRST - Please send us a message & have a chat with us BEFORE you make your reservation request

--> THE AVAILABILITY CALENDAR IS ACCURATE - Please only make a reservation request for the exact (and complete) dates that you require. You can use the calendar on our listing to see our availability month by month. If the dates you require are not showing as available on that calendar, it's because we're booked for those dates...
Sorry :(

--> AGREE ARRIVAL TIMES BEFORE YOU MAKE A RESERVATION REQUEST - Guest arrival time is 6pm. Please see the "Other Things to Note" for more information about arrival times / check in / bag drop details, etc.

Message us first about your intended arrival time BEFORE you make a reservation request.

--> HAVE A VERIFIED PROFILE - We're much more likely to accept requests from Airbnb'ers with profiles, friends, & recommendations, etc. In the same way you feel more comfortable knowing more about the people you're staying with, we do too. And a profile pic of a cat doesn't really cut it either...

PLEASE ASK - Please just send us a message if you've any questions about staying with us, or visiting Sydney.

FIVE STAR STAY - Now here's the most important bit:
** Please use the code words; "Five Star Stay" when you message us about your reservation - Just drop those words into your message to us. It lets us know you've read this information and are ready for a fantastic five star hosted experience with us in our Sydney City home.

Can't wait to meet you!

cheers,

Vinh & Stuart

PS
Well done for reading this far!
Most people don't :(
Sorry, this is so long, but we know we've answered all your questions now.

And remember to use the code words; "Five Star Stay" in your message.

Guest access

Our house is your house - we are not a hotel, this is not a business. It is our home. We live here.

We look forward to welcoming you to stay you just as we would welcome our family and friends.

We'll provide you with a code for the door with easy (and secure) access, so you can come and go as you please.

We work from home, so there's generally always someone around.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you like.

We live here. This is our home.

We will be at home when you stay, and generally around & about if and when you need us.

Other things to note

We've a few reasons for the 6.00pm arrival time / check in / bag drop time... One of them is that we're really flexible with check out times. :)

While we do work from home, we don't particularly want to broadcast on the internet if we are away from home. That's why our arrival time is always listed as 6pm.

Our "check in" / "arrival time" / "bag drop" is all the same thing. It's not like we're a hotel with a team of porters waiting to take your bags any time of the day or night whether we're at home or not. So, if we haven't agreed some alternate arrangements, then we look forward to welcoming you to our home at 6.00pm.

While we may be able to arrange some arrival times / bag drops / check ins earlier, we do need to make those arrangements well in advance. So if the 6.00pm check in time isn't your preference, please talk to us about it *before* you make your reservation. :)

"Farm Gate Rules" - if a door is open, leave it open, if a door is closed, please leave it closed. We ask that you always close the gates behind you (our little dog is an escape artist - while he's been very slow learning how to pick the locks, leaving the gate open makes it much too easy for him to get away and find himself in all sorts of mischief).

We'd ask that you'd please not eat in your room, or smoke inside the house. We've a kitchen and dining room for meals (and of course, feel free to use the fridge) and a sheltered, undercover area outside that you're more than welcome to use if you smoke.

We tend to work from home, meet clients in our home office, and work by phone too. So this means that our home would be better suited to guests wanting to be out sightseeing during the day, rather than spending the days inside. (But why would you want to stay inside all day when there's so much to see and do anyway?)

Every experience we've ever had with Airbnb has been a positive one. Whether we've been hosting, or staying as guests, we've met kind & considerate people, had interesting conversations, and made great new acquaintances & friends.

We don't imagine you'll be any different, and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.

Staying with Stuart and Vinh was very enjoyable. Stuart was there to greet us the evening we arrived and helped us with our luggage. He gave us the tour and made us feel very welcome. Unfortunately, we didn't see much of him after this as we were out most of the day into the evenings. We did however have the pleasure of meeting Vinh, who is equally as lovely. We had rented the second bedroom (not the loft) in their gorgeous home. The room was clean and tidy, and they had provided us with towels, which was very handy. The bathroom was again, very clean and well kept. The house is in an excellent location and is just a short walk from Sydney's Light Rail system. It's also within walking distance of Darling Harbour, and very near other attractions like the Star casino. We were encouraged to make ourselves feel like we were at home from the very beginning, and that's what it felt like. I'd highly recommend booking with these hosts - you won't regret it.

The location is very good, very close to darling Harbour, the room is clean, full of fashionable Book atmosphere, the backyard is near the sea. Vinh & Stuart is very friendly. We stayed here for 2 days ,They gave us good travel advice. I'll consider staying here next time I'm in Sydney. By the way, the gelato Messina ice cream on the first floor of the casino building within a few minutes of the house's home is particularly delicious. It is strongly recommended, ha ha ha (房间地理位置非常好,离darling Harbour很近,房间很干净,充满了时尚书香气息,后院临海。Vinh & Stuart很友好,我们在这里住了2天给了我们很好地旅行建议,下次来悉尼还会考虑住这里。 对了 ,里家里几分钟路程的赌场大楼一楼的gelato messina冰淇淋特别好吃,强烈推荐,哈哈哈)

Recommended! Hosts were great, room was comfortable, quiet and well appointed. It is a great location; the neighborhood is safe, fun and convenient. I would hope to be able to stay with Vinh and Stuart on my next trip to Sydney. The only thing to be aware of is that the bathroom is on a different floor than the bedroom. It was not a problem, just noting it here for future guests.

Really wonderful homely place. The house smells really amazing and makes me feel like having waffle every time I step into the house. The hosts were really friendly and helpful and they also do the little things that make a huge difference like warming up your room by turning on the heater before you return back to the room. Highly recommended and I can see why they are one of the top rated host in Australia.

G'Day from Australia! He's Vinh, and I'm Stuart... We're big fans of AirBnB having used it when traveling in the USA not long after AirBnB first started. Since then we've enjoyed traveling with AirBnB across the US, around Australia, in Hong Kong, and also in Vietnam. …
