“Excellent vacation rental”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My family and I stayed two weeks in this apartment. Wati is a hospitable host. She makes sure that you know to contact her for any need. I even texted her about a malfunctioning electric water kettle, and she came a mere 10 minutes after the text to replace the kettle.

Rockdale is a safe and peaceful neighborhood with mouth-watering bakeries, convenient restaurants and other stores (many have a very nice Arabic influence). Wati's unit is just a 5-minute walk from the train station, which can directly take you downtown.

Wati generously provides everything in her unit. The kitchen is stocked with dining and cooking ware (plates, utensils, pots, pans, baking ware, tea kettle, microwave, stove, oven, fridge/freezer) as well as some essential cooking ingredients. The bedrooms have extra changes of sheets and towels. The toilet is well-stocked with toilet paper, and the shower room even has some bathroom essentials (toothpaste, shampoo, etc) that can get you through a few days. The unit has one of the apartment building's few beautiful porches, which carries a quaint bench and table set and a drying rack. The supply closet even has cleaning supplies so that you can clean the unit to your desire.

Remember:
- This is the outlet you'll have in Australia: http://www.mappingmegan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Power-Outlet-for-Australia.jpg
- If you plan to take the public transportation often, get an Opal Card (a reusable and refillable train ticket) rather than the single tickets.
- This unit gets cold during the fall and winter months (March through August), and I couldn't find the heating, so bring warm clothes for indoors.
- If you plan on using the coin-operated washer and dryer in this unit, bring many $1 coins ($1 per minute per machine).

Management Response

We appreciate the comments and the praise by our Virginia visitors , we sincerely hope that they had a pleasant stay , we certainly do whatever is possible from our side to make it comfortable for them .
Just a small clarification , the unit does have a reverse-cycle air conditioner (Hot and cold ) which is big enough to sufficiently heat or cool the unit as required ; May be some visitors don't know how to use it , even though is straightforward , we will be glad to show them how.
Also the coin operated washer / dryer utilizes $1 coins , one $1 coin for every 15 minutes which is quite reasonable.
Finally we are available for assistance almost all the time , to ensure that our visitors enjoy a pleasant stay in our unit and in Sydney in general .

“Good location for Sydney”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Spent three weeks here, covered all the bases. Very clean, was ideal for a base. WiFi was poor but we managed . Location good for transit into Sydney and the coast.
