We enjoyed our experience overall but there were some issues. When we arrived, the checkin experience was excellent but when we went in, we felt as though the last cleaning had been quite awhile ago. There was no battery in the clock, the light on the balcony was burnt out and the balcony itself was a mess. The tiles were moldy and very cluttered with leaves and debris and the cushions on the furniture was old and somewhat smelly. Having said that, when we contacted L'Abode, they had a team of three cleaners and a supervisor at the condo within the hour and they worked very hard to remedy all of the above plus supply us with dish and dishwasher soap, tea, and treats. We can't say enough about the company itself.
Some other minor comments: for a nice place like this, the kitchen flatware, (knives, forks etc) was the cheapest quality I have ever seen. One would think that for $25 a four piece setting could be left that would be more appropriate for a condo in this price range.
There was a Nespreso type coffee maker left with no samples so we took a dirty cartridge to Coles to try and match it (which we did, and the machine worked well) A couple of fresh ones left for us would have been nice.
The bedroom and bathroom cupboards had a distinct musty odor which we recognize must be hard to avoid in a hot, humid climate when there is no air conditioning. Again, the fact that all of the windows opened helped, and sleeping temperatures were reasonable.
The TV reception is an antenna source in the bedroom and was very spotty. It was often pixcelated and the color of the screen went from normal to green every few minutes ,even with a different signal from my computer.
A bit more attention to some of the above would greatly improve the experience.
Communication with L'Abode was easy.
Given the initial cleanliness I strongly question the $280 (Aus) cleaning fee. This seems very excessive compared to other places we have stayed.
If ever there was perfect Oasis in Sydney that is central to everything via taking ferries to/fr the Central Business District[CBD], then Macmahons Point would be that jewel in the Oasis!
The location of this lovely apartment was perfect for us because we wanted something central to all the sites in Sydney but close to: ferries w lovely water views of harbor, boats, the Sydney bridge and Opera House allowing great access to morning walks and runs, yet away from traffic & busy streets,
This was it in buckets!
After a friend recommended this location & the property mgr Anthony, we booked not realizing how ideal the locale would be. Our bright 1 bdrm apartment is in a well managed modern 60's building. Classic & comfortable with enough room for a family of three. The clean simple kitchen catered to all our breakfasts and everything needed for our occasional home cooked & takeaways after a long day out sight seeing.
Thanks again for my daughters portable airbed and your fast follow up to our questions, you were great Anthony.
We will return and book w you again!
