“Wonderful host, wonderful location, wonderful transport, woderful everything.”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Michael is a charming host. The property is in an excellent location for exploring the beautiful eastern suburbs within walking distance of bus routes taking you to Sydney central, Bondi beaches or a scenic view of Sydney Harbour via the ferry at Watsons Bay. Shuk is an excellent restaurant within walking distance and there are other eateries in Bondi North and Bondi Beach offering great food at reasonable prices. We would return again to this convenient and pleasant location.

Hi Glenda, I'm so pleased to have hosted both of you and am even more pleased you had such a good time. You were both adventurous and made the most of your stay here, something which always delights me. Thank you as well for the 'new route' to the city via Watsons Bay and the ferry - great way to travel to the city.
Do come back - I look forward to hosting you both again.
Regards Michael

“Superb location, spotless studio, greatest host ever”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Michael was such a great host, he made our stay in Sydney to one of the best experience we have ever had. The studio looks exactly the same as on the pictures, it's spacious, clean and well equipped. The location is superb, Bondi beach is within 15 minutes and there are plenty of buses to get into the city too. Michael waited us with a welcome gift (snacks, drinks, chocolate) which was great a way to start our day at Bondi. He was always available whenever we needed something and we also had great talks about the strange little thing we call, life. We did enjoy our own private little entrance with table and chairs, we had lovely dinners there. Michael joined us for dinner at the last evening and we had a magnificent bbq night together, which was a great ending of our trip to Australia.

Hi Jozsef and Kata, It was such a delight to host you both. Warm and easy-going, you were easy to connect with and to chat to. My public response to you is sincere appreciation for the care and respect you had for the Studio, returning it to me in a pristine and spotless state. I was just bowled over. Cleaning of course is our responsibility, but your obvious effort in leaving it so clean was enormously appreciated because it seemed like a gesture in expression of how much you enjoyed yourselves. Thank you both so very much. I'd be thrilled to have you stay again. Kind regards Michael

“Beautiful en suite room with fantastic views and a friendly, helpful host.”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Michael's studio is absolutely beautiful, as was the location. He was very helpful in providing information regarding public transport and local areas of interest, and was incredibly welcoming.
Michael is a really lovely host - he brought us breakfast on our first morning, which was very much appreciated!
All in all we had a perfect stay and there was nothing about the experience that could have been improved - we loved it.

Hi August and Sinead,
Really touched by your comments - thank you.
It's just so easy being a welcoming host with gracious guests like yourselves. Your warmth and enthusiasm were immediately infectious. You guys were fun. And I really did appreciate the trouble you took to clean the unit before you left - kitchen and bathroom were spotless, and the bedding stripped and folded, ready for laundering. The whole cleaning and laundering process is really our responsibility but that you cared enough to do what you did, meant a great deal.
Please come again - we'd just love to host you once more.
Kind regards
Michael.

“Perfect studio in secluded position.”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

I must say that I was truly amazed with my experience. The host Michael was amazing in his honest, genuine and personable approach to us. Michael made us feel so comfortable and has a genuine interest in people. We enjoyed our coffee and conversations greatly. You can enjoy also enjoy total privacy if that is your wish. The quality, location, privacy and facilities of the studio are first class. I normally stay at five star hotels for my employment but now wish I could stay at places like this. Michael has spoiled us now. I was hesitant to give this place an honest appraisal as bookings will become difficult however this place deserves the review. But if you get a chance to stay you will not regret the experience. Great cafes, beach and transport very close. Parking on street was easy if you have a car.

“Exquisite Private Nest in the heart of Bondi”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

Excellent choice for a stay in the Bondi beach area! Michael is very charming and personable. He made our stay smooth and memorable. Transport is dead simple if needed but there is a huge variety of restaurants, bars, entertainment, just a short walk away. We highly recommend this location and host for any travelers in the Sydney area.

It was lovely having both of you here and thank you for taking such good care of the unit. I was touched by your graciousness in your warmly expressed appreciation of the 'little things' I had done while you were here. I take delight and pride in being the kind of host people seem to experience me as, and it is lovely to have part of it reflected back. Guests like you make my Tripadvisor hosting such a wonderful experience. Please come back at any time - I'd be thrilled to have you again. Warm regards Michael

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Michael’s Studio. Location and views from the property were gorgeous and Michael was a great host. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and even gave us a lift to our next destination!
I highly recommend his place and will definitely stay again. Thanks Michael.
